NV Sean Thackrey Pleiades XIX Old Vines

This particular Pleiades (XX has also been released) is a symphonic, multilayered blend that keeps changing at every sip, with spices jumping over red fruit, richness competing with acid, eucalyptus rolling in over earthy, gamey notes. It’s unlike anything else, for sure, an unidentifiable drinking object that defies definition and expands the possibilities of what wine can be. Highly recommended. RC

NV Moutard Champagne Brut Grande Cuvée

Medium mousse, with bright apple flavors and a toasted bread yeasty background. Soft citrus flavors, Meyer lemon and Valencia orange peel, appear on the mid-palate and surpass the apple on the finish. This is very pretty wine at a reasonable price, but lacks layers of flavors found in great Champagnes. Drink with stone crabs.

NV Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne

Golden with persistent bubbles. A bright, lightly yeasty nose with fruit and a touch of toast in the flavor, which is creamy and even has a bit of anise. Medium-big body holds up well with foods. Lively citric finish, long, with minerality and then toast at the end. This season it also comes in a little yellow fridge case, which keeps a chilled bottle at drinking temperature for a couple hours if you're traveling to a friend's house.
