Brown Brothers Patricia Pinot Noir & Chardonnay Brut

This wine rules the magic line above which I will buy champagne every time. Its secret is the icy Whitlands vineyard in the foothills of the Victorian snowfields, with an altitude that defines its taut, mineral backbone, overlaid with the toasty complexity of six years bottle age. It will elevate you to a new altitude! $37 at Kemeny’s.
