ERNEST RAPENEAU GRANDE RE­SERVE BRUT SELEC­TION

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

While this mai­son may be a bit low key, it’s note­wor­thy for be­ing a fam­ily-owned grower, one of the largest in Cham­pagne. Headed by fourth-gen­er­a­tion Christophe Rapeneau of the Rapeneau Fam­ily Es­tates com­pris­ing seven Cham­pagne brands, the flag­ship Ernest Rapeneau com­prises sev­eral styles of pop­u­lar bub­bly. For the hol­i­days when big is bet­ter, look to this fresh and frank Grande Re­serve which com­prises Pinot Noir, Chardon­nay and Pinot Me­u­nier in smooth bal­ance. Fine, per­sis­tent bub­bles and clas­sic notes of white flow­ers with nutty aro­mas help it pair to the Christ­mas ta­ble or with cheese. $130 (mag­num) from winecon­nec­tion.com.sg
