When we were offered the opportunity to purchase the excellent Charles Ellner Brut "Carte Blanche" at a very attractive price and pass the savings along to our customers, we jumped at the chance. After all, we all need Champagne for the holidays!
It is a steal at only $34.99! Champagne of this quality very rarely sells at this price.
Vivid yellow. Aromas of redcurrant, orange zest, and white pepper, with a smoky quality in the background. On the palate, supple red berry and pit fruit flavors are given lift and cut by a hint of dusty minerals. Rich yet lively wine with solid finishing punch and lingering spiciness. 90 points from Antonio Galloni's Vinous and 91 points from Wine Spectator!
And here is the perfect dish to serve with it (this is a go-to recipe for me with Champagne, only I call them Gougeres): https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/cheese-puffs-recipe-1916309
