While I see no reason to ever wait to drink Champagne, we seem to sell a lot more in December than any other month. I have had a soft spot for this wine ever since I first tried it a few years ago. From a small Champagne house that has been making fine bubbles since 1760, this Brut has everything I love: freshness, depth of flavor and fine bubbles. This is the sister winery to the legendary Salon house, and de-classified Salon can end up in this NV Brut. Regularly $45, it’s a true bargain at this price.
