Our Champagne portfolio at The Wine Company represents 60 selections with a nice offering of the most capable Récoltant-Manipulants as well as an enticing selection of the most illustrious boutique houses to be found – not to mention the additional 70+ sparkling wines from outside of Champagne.

Choosing can be daunting.

Wine Company Portfolio Director Wil Bailey has selected nine standouts that have made a particular impression to suggest to you as highlights for you to consider in time for the holidays.

We hope you come to love these wines every bit as much as we do!

Callot_Grande_ReservePierre Callot Grand Reserve
“Yep, four Blanc de Blancs on a list of nine wines. Now you know a lot more about my tastes than you did previously. This is a wine which makes me happy and melancholy all at the same time. Happy because we get some of the 100cs which make it to the US, and because the Grand Reserve, with a larger percentage of reserve wine than the regular Grand Cru NV bottling, manages to carry both depth and freshness in an almost impossible way. Melancholy because Thierry Callot is the end of the line for this domaine. He is not a young man, and when he hangs it up this collection will cease to exist. Get in and enjoy them in the coming years while you can so you can tell your kids about how great the world used to be.”

“In a world where the really great Rosé Champagnes are both very rare and very expensive, I am happy to present you with Jean-Paul Hebrart’s Rosé NV which he makes in enough quantity that we can stock it year round, AND it is $60/bottle or less to you! It is also delivers a great balance of fruit and structure as Jean-Paul combines equal parts Côte des Blancs Chardonnay from Oiry and Chouilly and Pinot Noir from Mareuil sur Ay to walk the razor’s edge of crispness and power.”

Drappier_Carte_d'OrDrappier Carte d’Or
“This is the greatest value in our entire Champagne catalogue. It is also a happy first foray into the Aube region of southern Champagne. Drappier has not only the most historic cellar in the Aube, but it exists today as one of the most pristine in all of Champagne as it was effectively walled up and hidden from the occupying Nazis in World War II. You are now fully immersed in Pinot country. 75% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier, and 15% Chardonnay. Satisfaction in a glass!”
