2018 Domaine de l'Aigle À Deux Têtes "Les Clous" Savagnin-Naturé Côtes du Jura Blanc
Review Date: 06-21-2020
This is a beautiful example of how elegant and intelligent the Savagnin grape can be when properly tended to. It has a creamy, rich nose that is almost akin to an aged Champagne. While it is barrel-fermented and rich in aromas, the wine is also home to a beautiful acidity and boasts alluring flavors of bright citrus, tropical fruit, and toasted almonds. It has a salty minerality that leaves your palate wanting more. As with most natural white wines from the Jura region there is a little funk in the wine, but in a good/interesting way that really diversifies this bottling from the rest. Overall this is a super refreshing, acidity-driven white that would pair fabulously with lighter fare or fatty appetizers.

A toasty, fuller-bodied Champagne with a zingy acidity and well-rounded palate. The Canard-Duchene Brut is super concentrated in lemon zest and brioche flavors, and impresses with a salty minerality and generous stone fruit finish. This is a stunning bubbler that will impress those with a penchant for quality Champagne. This would be an incredible dinner pairing and would just sing if enjoyed alongside a spread of cheeses.

Baron-Fuenté "Grande Réserve" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 02-16-2020
Don't let the price fool you! This is one of the best deals in our entire Champagne collection and is THE go-to for K&L staffers looking for a last-minute bubbly. A Muenier-forward blend from far-western Champagne that spent 3 years on the lees, this bottle is toasty and nutty on the aromatics, with a fruity palate and very balanced acidity. Looking to spice it up at your next party? Consider purchasing this in magnum format - it is even better and was aged for an extra year on the lees.
