2009 Westport Brut RJR

Westport River's world famous Champagne Method is a new vintage! Spectacular white grapefruit, vanilla bean ice cream, and savory toasted sesame play out amid the typical and familiar to many "RJR" profile of lemon brioche, apple bread pudding, and waves of caramel with delicate ginger on the finish. Tiny bubbles grace the sip, while umami glutamates, a chemistry that can only happen with enough time in our cellars before we riddle and disgorge, lends a depth that’s mesmerizing. Having passed the spicy kimchi test at Simjang in Worcester (it was recently their by-the-glass sparkling), the RJR can handle the “from canapes to curry” gambit. But you really haven’t had a burger until you’ve had it with Champagne.

This sparkler is said to have been a favorite of Julia Child and has been served many times in the White House.
