BOLLINGER Special Cuvée Brut Champagne

(Champagne, France) $13

There I stood in the wine shop staring at a wall of Champagnes. Each one looked as though it wanted to be picked up and taken home–like puppies waiting to be adopted. In the end, I chose this Bollinger, a wine that has stopped me in my tracks before. If it were a person, it would be a Pre-Raphaelite woman—sensual, full-bodied, with long tresses of auburn hair. But it is of course a wine, and its long creamy-nutty richness feels exactly right right now when winter is upon us. Every Champagne is said to have a style, but only the best Champagnes are utterly distinctive—like this. (12% abv)
