NV Larmandier-Bernier Premier Cru Vertus (Biodynamic) $38.99
This is a fine grower (RM) champagne farmed biodynamically using 100% Premier Cru grapes including a small selection of pinot noir growing in the chardonnay-dominant area of CÃ´tes des Blancs. This delicious wine has notes of minerality and lees.

'97 Vilmart Coeur de CuvÃ©e (Biodynamic) $89.99
Carefully tended old vines and hand picked grapes yield a rich and round champagne full of citrus and vanilla. Great structure, full of body...elegant!
NV Albert Mann CrÃ©mant d'Alsace (Organic) $18.99
Like champagne? Want to try something different? This is softer and lighter, with a beautiful blend of apple, citrus and floral notes. All hand harvested, a lot of work was put into this sparkler.
'04 Ermite Medici Reggiano "Solo" (Biodynamic) $11.99
A sparkling red? Long before the Aussies started sparkling their Shiraz, Lambrusco has been pleasing the masses. Solo packs enough to warrant discussion or no-hassle enjoyment.
'03 Eric Bordelet Normandy Sydre "Doux" (Biodynamic) $12.99
Biodynamic cider? Yes, and this cider explodes with ripe, freshly crushed apple notes. Delicious with a touch of sweetness and acidity. Great as an aperitif, paired with charcuterie and blue-vein cheese.
