NV Gruet Blanc de Blancs “Sauvage,” New Mexico
On Sale $14.99
100% Chardonnay. No Dosage. Gruet Sauvage NV is a bone-dry sparkler, pale straw in color with a delicate but persistent mousse. The minerally aromas and flavors of bright citrus pair well with oysters, sushi and cream sauces.
NV Hure Freres Brut Champagne “L’Invitation”
On Sale $36.99
The ripe pear and white cherry fruit is fresh and juicy in this well-cut Champagne, carried on the fine mousse alongside subtle notes of lemon pound cake, graphite, salted almond and ground ginger.

NV Hure Freres Brut Rosé Champagne “Insouciance”
On Sale $42.99
Based on 2013, plus 30% réserve wines, the pale pink-colored NV Rosé Brut Insouciance is an assemblage of 35% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir and 25 % Chardonnay. The wine opens with a clear and refreshing bouquet of small red fruits on chalk and indicates a lovely purity. Very crisp and pure on the palate, this light Rosé reveals a lovely precision and comes along with a lean, mineral character with delicate fruit. Excellent. This Insouciance was disgorged in November 2015 with a dosage of six grams.
