Vazart-Coquart et Fils, Champagne (France) Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

($52):  Not many producers make a non-vintage Blanc de Blanc Champagne.  Fortunately, this small grower does.  Made entirely from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Chouilly, it’s enticingly creamy and elegant.  A delicate toasty, yeasty element just adds to its allure.  A brilliant bead of acidity balances the richness.  It’s a Champagne that stops you in your tracks.
