A Restaurant with Extra Sparkle (February 20, 2003)

The restaurant with the best list for champagnes in Toronto is Café Brussels at 124 Danforth Avenue (416-465-7363).

Chef/proprietor Roger Wils has amassed an impressive collection that includes 10 different half bottles, a magnum of Krug 1989 ($465), and magnums of Salon Cuvee S 1985 ($475) and Cuvee S 1976 ($1,200). Or you could go crazy with a half bottle of Heidsieck Brut 1919 ($3,000), Taittinger Collection 1981 (750 mL, $650) or the Taittinger Collection "Roy Lichtenstein" 1985 ($650).

The 17 non-vintage Champagnes Brut are listed by village (Reims, Tours-sur-Marnes, Epernay, Champillon, Chigney-les-Roses, Ay, Mareuil sur Ay, Le Mesnil). Under Blanc de Blancs, again by village, there are 25, including seven vintages of Salon from 1995 back to 1979.

If you're into vintage champagnes you have a choice of forty-seven (including four vintages of Ployez Jacquemart), and if you like rosés there are 16 available, including my favourite, Billecart Salmon 1995.
