I remember a great Champagne buyer (Gary Westby) once told me, "When it comes to sweet wines, there are only two type of folks, ones who loves it and the ones who are lying." I understand the American wine market is trying to shake out the old stereotypical, cheap and badly made sweet table wines of the past. I see it in the store everyday, whenever someone asks me for a recommendation, it almost always include the line "....oh, and I want it dry!" But just hear me out for a second. The truth is that a little sugar in your wine is not always a bad thing, and when done right it can be an absolutely marvelous thing! Perfect example here is the Michel Loriot Marie Leopold Sec Champagne. Lively aromatics, good solid tight bubbles with fresh citrus, crispy yellow apple and white peach. Just a slight hint of sweetness follow on the tongue that would go PERFECT with dishes as fancy as torchon de foie gras, or as humble as a bag of Lay's original potato chips, or simply enjoy on its own! The sweetness really softens the mouthfeel and makes this Champagne super easy drinking, plus with our direct import pricing makes this bottle is a killer dealer! A must have for this summer! Cheers!
