Drappier Blanc de Blancs Champagne NV

For $40 or so, it's fairly hard to go past this honest effort of a Champagne, though their website and flash are closer friends than is perhaps desirable.  Fresh, citrus, toast and a touch of grass on the nose.  Nice mousse on the palate.  Really hard to go past it.  Did I say that already?  Tasted blind.  85 points (7/10)

Abv: 12%
Price: $40s
