Champagne’s Golden Age

Too often relegated to just special occasions and celebrations, Champagne is capable of myriad styles that make it extremely versatile at the dinner table. Properly cared for, the best Champagnes can age effortlessly for many years and decades while developing extraordinary complexity in bottle, which places them in rarified company among the world's great wines.

2013 Domaine Roger Lassarat Saint-Véran Les Mûres ($20) 89 points

2013 Domaine Roger Lassarat Saint-Véran Les Mûres, 89 points

This remarkably successful Saint-Véran from a tricky vintage offers pure but subdued aromas of lemon curd and flowers. It’s dense and strong but juicy and energetic thanks to early harvesting, with a floral quality dominating. The persistent, firm-edged finish features a touch of vanillin oak. (ST)
