Jean Vesselle Rose de Saignee Bouzy $70 (Last Call!)
An elegant Pinot Noir-based Champagne with the body and structure of a fine red wine; textured and complex. The Rosé de Saignée method is as follows: grapes macerate briefly for color, then the juice is "bled" off to ferment separately. A deep cranberry in color and very vinous in style, this is like red Burgundy with bubbles, offering hints of violet and graphite to the ripe black cherry and plum fruit and spice and dried thyme notes. Vibrant acidity steers this wine through to the lightly chalky finish.

2021 Domaine Heut La Haut-Lieu Vouvray Sec $45
Loire Valley, France
This is a very fine, fragrant and floral Le Haut Lieu Sec. While delicate, the 2021 fills the mouth with a cloud of pure fruit reminiscent of violets, apple, and nectarine skin. There's a fine sinew that pulls the wine through on the finish. It can be approached in its youth but will go on and on.
