    As vintages go, 2011 is not as celebrated as its neighbors, but our friends at Egrot – namely winemaker Elisabeth Goutorbe – worked some magic with a difficult year. This release, composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, is both crisp and rounded, showing off baked apple fruit balanced with chalky minerality. As with all Goutorbe wines, this has a delicate bead, an elegant, dry finish and overdelivers for the price.

    This Champagne comes from the impossibly steep slopes of Ay grand cru in the heart of the Marne Valley. It is composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay from some of the chalkiest soil in all of Champagne. While this vintage proved challenging for many, some of the best plots in the grand crus did exceptionally well, producing wines of both power and finesse. This is one of those wines, and has plenty of richness for drinking on its own, but also the backbone of minerality to pair with the best salmon or tuna fillets.
