Is there a better time for Champagne?
“I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I'm thirsty.”
It's Springtime in Australia which is synonymous with long sunny days, Group 1 racing and Champagne! This seemed as good a time as any to launch our biggest Champagne offer ever.
There's a veritable who's who of heavyweight rock stars with Verve Clicquot, Ruinart, Dom Perignon and Krug.

2008 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut
Special Offer $94
A very upright, fresh and youthful vintage for Clicquot with lemon citrus, peach and almond nougat aromas. The palate has a brisk acid punch – assertive in 2008. Crisp lemon and peach fruit flavors hold bright, and there is some oyster shell chalkiness, too, leading into a warming, grilled nut-flavored finish.

2008 Veuve Clicquot Cuvée La Grande Dame
Special Offer $245
Light yellow. Extremely refined, fresh nose opening up to fresh fruit and citrus zest with subtle biscuit undertones. Incredibly mouth-filling palate showing great presence and elegance. Very precise aromas, silky texture and pervasive freshness.

NV Ruinart Blanc de Blancs
Special Offer $100
Super curated reduction here, heading into slightly meaty territory with grapefruit, toasted lemon peel and hazelnuts. The palate is delivered in a smooth, sweet-fruited style with approachable peach flesh.

2008 Dom Pérignon Vintage Brut
Special Offer $249
The finest release of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage, the 2008 Dom Pérignon wafts from the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, green apple, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with only subtle hints of the smoky, autolytic aromas that have been such a prominent signature of recent releases. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, its notable flesh and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with a youthfully exuberant but elegant mousse and a long, beautifully delineated finish. Considering the sheer size of this cuvée, it's a remarkable achievement and a fitting release with which to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as chef de cave. Given the 2008's intensity and balance, I suspect purists will be anticipating later disgorgements with lower dosage and more time on the lees with particular enthusiasm.

2006 Dom Pérignon Vintage Brut Rosé
Special Offer $425
The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is showing well, offering up an expressive bouquet of bitter orange, red berries, apple and a delicate hint of dried flowers and herbs. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and broad, with a fine mousse, ripe acids and chalky phenolic structure, especially on the finish, which testifies to the fully 20% of still red wine that was included in the blend. This is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.

2006 Krug Vintage Brut
Special Offer $439
Krug's superb 2006 Brut, which will be released this year, numbers among the vintage's high points, unfurling in the glass with a complex and expressive bouquet of tarte tatin, warm biscuits, ginger, honeycomb, dried white flowers, smoke and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy attack that reflects the warm vintage but segues into a beautifully vibrant palate that's deep and surprisingly reserved, displaying superb definition, delicately chalky structure and a long, lively finish. While this is a powerful vintage Krug, it's also beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades.
