Palate Press Wine of the Week: Pol Roger Champagne Extra Cuvée de Réserve Brut

Very pale gold color with tiny bubbles. Light toast, baked apples, and mandarin oranges waft up from the glass. On the palate, it opens with soft yeasty bread and apple flavors, adding sweet oranges and almonds on the mid-palate. The mousse is very active, mouth-filling, the acids bright. It is a pretty wine. Drink it with stone crabs. Highly recommended. DH

2009 Adami Vigneto Giardino Brut

Very ripe pears on the nose when cold. As it warms to drinking temperature, there's a floral overlay in both nose and flavor. Tastes deep and toasty, with elements of perry (pear cider) followed by a finish with some nice acidity. The fruit flavors bloom when paired with food. Classic Prosecco.
