JYPSI Whiskey Legacy Series (https://whiskeyjypsi.com/)
Not sure which bottle to get for that special someone this year? Whiskey JYPSI provides the perfect touch of exotic with its cross-blending of international whiskeys to create a one-of-a-kind pour. Founded by country music star, Eric Church, and business leader, Raj Alva, the duo tapped award-winning blender, Ari Sussman, to break the mold with the brand’s unique approach to whiskey-making—helping to create an award-winning product that Whiskey Raiders called, “perhaps the best celebrity spirit on the market.” Take its Legacy Batch 001. This bottle is based on traditional bourbon mash bill, but instead of blending the grains before fermentation, Whiskey JYPSI’s well-aged whiskey components are sourced from various origins and use cross-category blending to reconstruct a traditional mash bill. This allowed the brand to select from a wider portfolio of international whiskeys, ensuring that each whiskey is at the exact right age and flavor profile to perfectly harmonize within this particular blend. Drinkers can expect rich layers of aroma, flavor and deep wood character that are not generally found in spirits. Each batch of Whiskey JYPSI’s Legacy Series will be unique in its sourcing, blending and finishing approach. So, when Batch 001 is sold out, it cannot be replicated.

***** WINE TIME *****

Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Brut & Grand Brut Champagnes (https://www.perrier-jouet.com/)
What better way to welcome the holiday season than with a toast of bubbly? Maison Perrier-Jouët’s iconic vintage cuvée, Belle Époque Brut, is a rare and elegant bottle that celebrates both the art of vintage and the excellence of the champagne house’s vineyard. First appearing in 1964, this 2013 brut is instantly recognizable throughout the world by Art Nouveau master Emile Gallé’s painted Japanese white anemones adorning the bottle—but even more for its taste. The vintage cuvée creates a combination of freshness and finesse on the palate, rounded out by its delicate and distinctive white fruit and floral aroma. Perrier-Jouët recommends pairing the Belle Époque Brut’s pale, translucent gold pour with noble ingredients, such as king prawns and polenta or sole meunière. Another fan favorite, the brand’s Grand Brut is a melting pot of aromas and flavors crafted to make each moment special. The rounded champagne is crisp and light and features a hint of buttery brioche and vanilla on the nose—making it an ideal beverage for food options spanning chicken breast and grapefruit, to leeks. Perrier-Jouët’s Grand Brut has a longstanding history in its own right, tracing back to 1846 when the champagne house launched its Cuvée K, the world’s first “brut.” Soon, Maison Perrier-Jouët would become renowned for its low-sugar brut champagnes—a philosophy maintained to this day.

Sparkling Pointe’s 2015 1.5L Blanc de Blancs Magnum & 2014 Brut Seduction (https://shop.sparklingpointe.com/)
Not sure what to bring the host or hostess of your holiday parties this season? Sparkling Pointe’s 2014 Brut Seduction is sure to make any get-together sparkle. The rare, mature cuvée’s organoleptic profile is aged eight years before its disgorgement—allowing it to showcase a deep gold color with aromas of lemon custard, almond croissant, baking spices and Bosc pear. Drinkers can also expect a textured and balanced palate of red apple, white cherry and nutmeg as they sip on this sparkler, which consists of 49 percent Pinot Noir, 45 percent Chardonnay varietals and six percent Pinot Meunier. But, for those who are looking to bring a true show-stopper to their next soirée, Sparkling Pointe has the bottle for you. The 2015 1.5L Blanc de Blancs Magnum is the equivalent of two standard wine bottles—carefully filled with the winery’s elegant and rich Chardonnay. The 2015 Blanc de Blancs features a golden yellow appearance and opens with aromas of apple, pear and marzipan. A depth of caramel and almond croissant is enhanced with mature secondary flavors of baked apple, lemon zest and butter cookie. Founded in 2004 by husband-and-wife team Tom and Cynthia Rosicki, Sparkling Pointe is a recognized producer of traditional méthode sparkling wines, in which the vino undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle to produce the sparkle. Focusing on traditional varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier), the brand’s grapes are sustainably grown on three vineyard sites spanning 40 acres on the North Fork of Long Island. Sparkling Pointe is North Fork’s only winery fully dedicated to producing sparkling wines, which have been consistently acknowledged as some of the best in the New York wine region.
