Mod Sélection Champagne Releases Vintage 2008 Réserve & Rosé

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Critically acclaimed Mod Sélection Champagne has released its highly allocated Vintage 2008 for both the Mod Sélection Réserve and Mod Sélection Rosé.

The new varietals from Mod Sélection are exquisite masterpieces from a lauded harvest year.

Mod Sélection Réserve Vintage 2008 exudes a noticeable elegance and finesse in the bead. Aromas of rich, ripe fruit open beautifully in the glass.

On the palate, orange peel, dried apricot and pineapple leave place for brioche, nutmeg and clove. Full bodied without heaviness, this is a vintage that proves the reward that comes from waiting.

Mod Sélection Rosé Vintage 2008 boasts a remarkable deep-salmon hue, emblematic of the rare Saignée method. On the palate, an immediate focus of concentrated and complex fresh red fruit – strawberry, blood orange and plum.

Then, honey, ginger and sweet spice, true of such a vintage. Perfectly balanced acidity results in a finish both graceful and opulent. 

The combination of strict selection processes at harvest, the most delicate extraction of first press “coeur de cuvee,” rigorous control of fermentations, and use of the rare Rosé de Saignée production method have come together to create the purest expression of balance and terroir found in Champagne today.

“The attention to detail in every aspect of our production process is what sets this Champagne apart from all other 2008 vintages the industry has seen this year,” says Brent Hocking, Founder & CEO of Mod Sélection Champagne. 

“We have purposely waited to release these special blends to ensure optimum quality and purity – and we believe they’re worth the wait.” 

In keeping with the brand’s inaugural releases, the 2008 vintage varietals are packaged in rich brown metallic bottles, with avant-garde décor and adornment process. Delicate symbolized patterns and embellishments are handcrafted and applied by the finest artisans in Champagne, ensuring no two bottles are ever alike.

This is the third and fourth exclusive releases from the house of Mod Sélection, all of which have received 98 points by renowned wine critic, Anthony Dias Blue. Upcoming variants include NV Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, Vintage 2008 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, NV Blanc de Noirs, and a uniquely styled single vineyard estate grown Tête de Cuvée.

LOS ANGELES — Following California Governor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s “Safer at Home” order, Saucey has experienced an unprecedented number of users on their alcohol delivery platform.

The company has seen a 300% increase in area sales compared to a standard delivery day.

“As the concern over the COVID-19 virus has grown at both the state and public levels, I think you’re not so coincidentally seeing a rise in people ordering alcohol,” says Saucey co-founder and CEO Chris Vaughn. “We’re feeling the effects elsewhere too, like San Francisco and Chicago; we’re doing our best to assist everyone who wants to use us and use us safely.”

The Los Angeles-based app recognizes they are among select delivery services fortunate enough to be helping people in a variety of markets as they practice social distancing and protect themselves from the rapidly spreading Coronavirus.

“It’s good to see so many people making lifestyle adjustments that let them be as comfortable as they can be during this time,” Vaughn said.

There may be something to that comfort thing. Since March 15, Saucey has seen ice cream sales spike by 500% and soft drinks by 150%. Lime sales also spiked by 350%, potentially pointing to more people making mixed drinks.

As for the alcohol, vodka tops Saucey’s spirit sales and is up by 250%. Whiskey, however, saw the greatest spike at 300%. IPAs held the highest increase in sales in their beer category at 300%.

Saucey will continue providing safe deliveries to the people of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, San Diego, Chicago, New York, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Orange County and San Jose.

(TMZ) — Costco is unsympathetic to all the folks who stocked up on toilet paper like they were never gonna get another sheet … because the superstore has made it clear — NO REFUNDS!!!

This sign was plastered on the wall of the Costco in Pentagon City outside Washington, D.C. Now that people have settled in, it seems they’re realizing they have waaaaaay too much toilet paper, hand sanitizer, wipes and Lysol, and apparently some are trying to return it for cash.

You gotta be a little sympathetic … lots of people got laid off after they hoarded these items, so money is a huge issue.

Also on the no-return list — Water and rice.
