I think of champagne every day.
It's because of you all, my unyielding passion, and the simple fact that I can't imagine life without it. I'm always on the hunt for emerging stars, enticing deals, and underdogs with the potential to rise as icons. Sometimes it's a new name that exhilarates, other times it's a fresh cuvée from a trusted old friend, but always, these selections are shaping the industry.
In the "Trending Now November" box, I've handpicked game-changers and their standout creations. These are selections I strongly recommend tasting or adding to your cellar.

Tom is a highly sought-after newcomer in the champagne scene, yet far from a beginner. Having been mentored by the very champagne gods themselves, Anselm and Guillaume Selosse, Tom has set out on his own distinctive journey. His "Explorations" series perfectly encapsulates this quest, as he delves deep to uncover the true essence of his terroir. And with each year, be ready for a new cuvée, a testament that Tom's champagne odyssey continues.
Gone are the days when he was frequently heralded as one of Champagne's most promising newcomers. Today, Etienne stands firmly established, having crafted a signature style that distinctly sets him apart, along with an impressive wine range. Among his contemporaries, he's often celebrated as the show's standout. Curious about the reason? Taste "Les Rocheforts." I personally believe it's among his finest creations to date.
CHEVRY CUVEE TANKS 2020
Meet the game-changer from the southern soils of Champagne. With a concept so sharp it cuts through the norm, Paul-Bastien isn't just another name. Guided by industry titans Dominique Moreau (Marie Courtin) and Roland Piollot, he's unearthing the raw power of his Polisot terroir soils, shaking the very foundation of traditional winemaking. Pushing boundaries? It's in his DNA. Paul-Bastien is unwavering in his pursuit to showcase the distinct taste differences of each vintage and its expression through various mediums - be it barrique, tank, or stainless steel barrel. 2020 is his 3rd year and for me, it's his best try so far.
Symbolically, this month's box showcases a trendy blend. Featured inside is a 100% Chardonnay from Calsac, a pure 100% Pinot Noir from Paul-Bastien Clergeot, and a harmonious blend by Tom Gauditiabois, with 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. This trio beautifully captures the timeless spirit of Champagne.
