Our Champagne buyer Gary opened this up for us the other day, and wow, what a treat! This bottle of bubbles from our direct import Fallet Dart is perfectly balanced and is sure to please you and your guests. There's a combo of floral and fruit notes that are not overly ripe, with beautiful acidity and texture. So happy to have this in just in time for the holidays!

With four hundred years of winemaking experience under their belt, you'd better believe the Fallet Dart Estate knows the way to make a phenomenal Champagne. There are floral notes from the Chardonnay, a silky, creamy texture, and great minerality and freshness. It always amazes me how Gary manages to keep so many great wines in the under $40 range and I'm certainly glad he can. This is one I will definitely be picking up for my holiday festivities.

Drinking this with the K&L crew after work last night was a huge treat. It struck me immediately how much this 2012 reminds me of the 2002s at this age. The wine is full, powerful and concentrated but still balanced by great acidity and a strong vein of minerality. The wine is loaded with the white flower exoticism of top-notch Chardonnay and seemed almost blanc de blanc like. The texture and bead were perfect, reminding me of prestige cuvée level Champagne. This wine Champagne is pretty irresistible right now.

This is a rockin' vintage Champagne for under $40! Rich flavors of stone fruits, Meyer lemons, and freshly toasted brioche are concentrated and well integrated, balanced by vibrant freshness, with minerals intermingling with the fruit. The Fallet-Dart family has spent hundreds of years on this land in western Champagne and their expertise is evident. Don't miss this deal!

This Champagne immediately mesmerized me with its fabulous aromas of linden tree blossom and white acacia flower. These incredibly captivating and engaging aromas lead to an even more impressive palate: deep, layered, and textured, with good mineral notes and a hint of fresh brioche, Meyer lemon, and a long-lasting finish. It was definitely a fantastic treat for us after a long day at work; everybody should have the same experience for sure!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. 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.
