Voirin-Jumel has graced Table Wine's shelves for nearly a decade, and it has a band of loyal followers. There's a good reason for that! The wine's combination of rich fruit, complex minerality, and fine bubbles let you know immediately that this is real-deal Champagne.

The Voirin and Jumel families both started producing Champagnes just after World War II. For the next 25 years, both families were simply growers, meaning they sold their grapes in bulk to the bigger Champagne houses. In the early 1970's, Francoise Jumel married Gilles Voirin, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, the estate is run by the couple's children Patrick and Alice.

The key to this wine's brilliance is the quality of fruit and the family's commitment to organic farming. When discussing Champagne, the village of Cramant is one of the top-spots for Chardonnay in all of Champagne. The family owns about 2.5 acres of Grand Cru vineyards here, and with one sniff and one sip of this wine, you can immediately sense the pedigree contained within the bottle.

This one pours a lovely golden color and exudes aromas of golden apple, ripe citrus, apricot, white flowers, and chalky minerality. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it possesses an almost creamy texture, but it finishes crisp and dry. Whenever I drink this fine bubbly, the first word that comes to mind is LUXURIOUS Yep, this is very, very fine, and it outclasses and outscores many big-name Champagnes, year in and year out.

This has already got a strong legion of fans, so don't wait too long to place your order. Once those 10 cases are gone, the deal pricing is gone too. Cheers and keep drinking the good stuff!
