Best Champagne Selection This Side of Europe – I have been to Brut many times. And, what keeps me coming back is the amazing selection of wines and the easy-going air of the place. Alfonso, the owner, is a very kind, warm, and exceptionally knowledgeable guy (with a suave Spanish accent). He owns, operates, and serves at this quaint, cozy, and cool little boutique and does so with the humility of a waiter and the confidence of a sommelier -- what a balance. The shop is a bit on the small side, but the location at Hwy 75 and Mockingbird is excellent, given that it is central to the more traveled Dallas hang-outs and sits in between the extra hip Palomar Hotel and the still up-to-par Trader Vic's. Though Brut has a vast selection of champagne, it has an equally fine selection of sparkling wines from all over the world. Prices for both champagne and sparkling wines range from the $30s into the hundreds. Tell Alfonso what you like and how much you would like to spend and he will tell you straight. I have not been disappointed in any of my choices or in those recommended by the owner, who has a true gift for divining the wine a customer wants from but a few disjointed descriptors. Brut does have a romantic aspect to it, but it is also a place to meet with friends and to try wines that you will not get the opportunity to try anywhere else in Dallas. Food is not served there, except for some high-end chocolates that make for a nice coupling with the champagne. The lack of anything to eat as you drink (e.g., nuts, crackers, cheese, etc.) is its only real draw-back. For what it's worth, Alfonso is also the owner and chef of Hola!, a wonderful Spanish tapas restaurant located at McKinney and Monticello. I mention this less to tout Hola! than to tout Alfonso himself, who, I have come to realize, is a true expert in both food and wine. Brut is great. If you don't have like it, it can only be because you happen to own your very own champagne shop in France itself. I am the FunkBlaster, and I do not lie.
Best Champagne Selection in Dallas – Love to drink champagne! Excellent selections available by the glass... Visited three times and always a unique small production champagne to try. Fantastic for those looking to learn more about bubbly.
Selection is sparkling but....... – Selection is sparkling but.....
We have been to Brut twice.
1st: They have an extensive selection but no printed list which means no tasting profiles or prices. Inquired about pricing and was told by owner they were comparable to Central Market. Good thing I was not from out of town.
2nd: We responded to a listing on their website advertising a complementary tasting on Friday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Arrived at 4:15pm and was told it was not available but there was not time to change the website.
Champagne lounge entertains and educates on Mockingbird. – In Short
Located next the Hotel Palomar just a stone's throw east of Central, Brut is a champagne boutique that aims to educate the masses about the beauty of the bubbly. With more than 160 brands on hand, this elegantly appointed space fitted with low-slung seating is the premier shop of its kind anywhere in the city. Try brands like Saracco Moscato D'asti 2006 from Italy, the Spanish-made Gran Claustro 2003 or the Laurent-Perrier 1997 from France.
