Champagne boasts some of the world’s greatest luxury brands with Krug, Cristal and, of course, Dom Perignon. But it’s also home to hundreds of small dynamic producers—farmers who grow their own grapes (often organically) and make (often with natural methods) tiny amounts of pure and absolutely delicious wine that reflect the individual personalities of their villages and terroirs. Toast with these wines, for sure. But also treat them like the great wines they are: taste, drink, explore!
Classic Krug — some seriously high-quality grape — but it needs another 5-10 years to come together. Far too lean for this House right now, but still plenty enjoyable and drinkable during the summer at the $200 pricepoint.
