Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

Wine Wednesday: 2007 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

As someone who writes about wine, I often have conflicted feelings about the wine press. Writing about wine, like writing about food, is very subjective, but there are some wine writers whose opinions are given so much credence that they can make or break a vintage. Note that I said "opinions." Wine writers who offer expertise are incredibly important to helping average people like you and me understand wine better, and to get a fuller understanding of what we like, but "opinions" vary. The 2007 vintage Bordeaux are a case in point. Yes, the vintage was challenging weather-wise. But great Bordeaux have been made in challenging vintages for centuries. The problem for 2007 Bordeaux, really, was that it followed the epic 2005 and the classic 2006 vintages. In a word, it was overshadowed. Opening prices for the vintage were initially quite high, too, which rubbed lots of people the wrong way. But prices have come down significantly in the year since the vintage was released to the public, and there are now some incredible deals to be had, even on the top wines.
