- BY the CASE
- BIG BOTTLES
Ah So Wine Openers: This wine opener is more difficult to use than the other options, but it is ideal for opening vintage bottles of wine or any other bottles that may be sealed with corks that have become brittle. That’s because it is specifically designed to avoid damaging the cork. How does it work? Two thin metal prongs attached to a handle are slid in between the cork and the bottle. Simply twist the handle, pull up, and the cork should come out. Nicknamed the “Butler’s Friend,” because any servant could easily use it to remove the cork, take a quick swig, and then replace it without anyone noticing the bottle had been tampered with. The Ah So has even been known to come to the rescue when a broken cork is stuck in the bottleneck.
Champagne in half bottles!
Dumenil is an independant Champagne House founded in 1874 & remaining in the family for 5 generations. All vineyards are Premier Cru in the typical chalk soil of Champagne's Montagne de Reims. Only the first & best juice is used.
A never-ending stream of fine bubbles rising with a persistent ring of mousse. Delicate aromas of white flowers with notes of white fruit (apple & pear) lead to elegant hints of yellow fruit (peach & apricot).
Seductively round on the palate with a beautifully long finish culminating with a mouth-watering touch of brioche. A perfectly balanced champagne thanks to equal proportions of the three traditional Champagne grapes; Pinot Meunier brings fruitiness, Pinot Noir lends body, & Chardonnay adds finesse. A blend of up to 10 vintages!
