Fizz /// Chardonnay & Pinot Noir // Champagne / France
The big dog, and one of the most sought-after Prestige Cuvee in Champagne. To suggest that this is the equal of Dom Perignon and Pol Roger Winny Churchill would do a massive disservice to Coeur de Cuvee (Dom Perignon’s annual production is 5,000,000, Coeur de Cuvee is 5,000). The wine is developed exclusively with the heart of the first press of grapes: serious juice. (Coeur de Cuvee – heart of the pressing). It is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot, and it spends a whopping 6 years aging on lees in after bottling. This is nothing short of a life changing wine. It’s structure and the endless tsunami of texture and complexity is an achievement one can only find in the wines of the grand exalted master of Grower Champagne; Jacques Selosse. STSWine

Another gorgeous wine, the 2007 Coeur de Cuvée is rich, ample and totally seductive. In 2007, the Coeur de Cuvée is intensely aromatic and highly expressive, with striking textural resonance throughout. Creamy and spherical through to the finish, the 2007 is a model of elegance and sumptuousness. The 2007 can be enjoyed today for its generous personality or cellared for another decade-plus.
