Over the course of the last 23 years our cadre of bubbly enthusiasts has enjoyed some incredible bargains, from the big champagne houses and the small family grower-producers.
Here are a few of our Past Club Bottlings:
Caze Thibaut 2017 Naturellement Extra Brut
Grower Champagne. The nose is focused and crystalline with golden apple, yellow plum, toasted almond, black currant, dried honeycomb, clay minerality and puff pastry. The palate is moderate in weight with good zingy acidity keeping the flavors from approaching cloying with a honeyed note to the mirabelle, golden apple, light nut and clay minerality. Quite exuberant and fun at the moment, it will be primary for the next five years, then should deliver joy through 2030.
Forest Marie 2008 Premier Cru
The nose shows ample cream, brioche, golden apple, marzipan, hazelnut and pineapple. The palate is full and present with golden apple, toast, cream upside down pineapple cake all kept in check by steely minerality to finish.
Andre Clouet Grand Cru Reserve Brut
The Andre Clouet Grand Cru Reserve NV is 100% Pinot Noir, and entirely from the village of Bouzy. Apple butter, scones, marzipan, orange peel, granny smith, clay, and some baking spices towards nutmeg and clove. The palate is more moderate in weight with golden apples, some clotted cream, and a light hit of citrus. A touch lighter than the last time we put this forth in a club, but still showing quite a bit of Pinot character.
Nathalie Falmet Brut Champagne
This Grower champagnes nose shows apple flesh, citrus, sandalwood, delicate plums, and a whisper of cream. The palate is delicate and pretty with good acidity and a flavor set that speaks to the Aube today with just there cream, citrus, a light nut aspect, and a hint of sugar plum. Try this with a sole with mustard sauce
Andre Clouet Grand Cru Brut Rose
100% Pinot Noir. This rosé showcases some fruit from the village of Ambonnay in addition to Bouzy. Strawberry and yeast with that forward red fruit immediately present. The palate is very balanced and keeps the exuberance of the nose in check with moderate acidity and an excellent seam of cream. The fruit and presence of this wine seems to call for duck with raspberries.
