Heidsieck Monopole "Blue Top" Brut Champagne

SKU #1018975 Gambero Rosso

 Full bodied with honeyed toast and caramel flavors, this is a soft wine with pleasantly rustic bubbles. For toasts.  (12/ 2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light yellow. High-toned aromas of lemon, green apple, toasted almond and herbs. Compact and austere on entry, then juicier in the mid-palate, offering flavors of orchard fruits and peach. Finishes on the lean side, with good cut and an echo of citrus fruits.  (12/ 2010)

Wine Enthusiast

 Soft-fruited Champagne, with pear and pink grapefruit flavors. It has a bitter almond edge that cuts through the acidity. The finish is soft, towards the sweet end of brut.  (12/ 2011)

Wine Spectator

 Candied apple character, with a hint of red berry and a refined texture, mark this elegant, medium-bodied bubbly, which is fresh, with a moderate finish. Drink now." (12/10)  (12/ 2010)

France

And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
