Champagne Brut Reserve 1er Cru (Godme, Sabine)
Sabine Godmé, Brut Reserve 1er Cru, Champagne, France NV70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier ORCHARD FRUIT, BEESWAX & BRIOCHE, FIRM, & SAVORY An instant favorite, Godmé’s “Reserve” cuvée is serious business. Captivatingly complex and impressively savory, it’s got lots of nuance to latch onto and explore while pairing with adventurous cuisines (especially those with whom the umami is strong). Predominantly Chardonnay, it exudes classic "tree fruit" ribboned with an orchard-ish earthiness that wouldn’t be out of place in the famous whites of Burgundy's Cote d’Or. A toasty, waxy richness seals the deal, and this is one you won’t soon forget... Serving suggestion: Venison (or beef) tataki w/ fried shiitakes & ponzu sauce. Okonomiyaki w/ scallions, bonito flakes, dried seaweed, & Kewpie mayonnaise.
