NV Clavelin Brut Comte
$24.99 / Case Price $20
Jura / France 100% Chardonnay
Sourced from a high plateau with base soils of limestone, the Brut Comte is produced by Methode Champenoise, secondary fermentation carried out in bottle. The wine is hand riddled and offers a particularly deep orchard fruit profile.
2020 Bisol Prosecco Crede
On Sale for $19.99
Valdobbiadene / Veneto / Italy
100% Glera
Creamy and full of orchard fruit flavors, Bisol Crede bottling is refreshing and offers a soft mousse. This is a thoughtful example of the category, balanced and just rightly sweet.
NV Gruet Sauvage Rosé
$22.99 / Case Price $18.40
100% Pinot Noir
Strawberry-inflected and bracingly crisp, this value driven sparkler employs fruit from New Mexico and California. Methode Champenois and featuring no dosage, this is quite dry Rose.
2020 Figuiere
Atmosphere Extra Brut Rosé
$35.99 / Case Price $28.80
Provence / France
65% Cinsault, 35% Grenache
Methode Traditionelle with secondary fermentation occurring in bottle, the Atmosphere Extra Brut is aged for 9 months on the lees prior to release. An unusual entry from the Provence region.
