Mārtiņs Pīlēns and his Modernist's grower champagne bar (they call it boutique champagne) have an addictive philosophy - that there is always a time for champagne! Modernists is Riga’s first grower champagne bar and shop in Riga (probably in the Baltics?) offering a wide range of the best names of Champagne – mostly cult growers hand-picked by Mārtiņš (Savart, Laval, Lassaigne, Dufour, Pierre Paillard, others) and the some of the leading houses. Make sure you talk to Martins on your next visit to the Bar - Martins is known as one a passionate advocate of grower champagne and a true ambassador of the region in Latvia!
Sommelier’s pick: Martins’ suggestion from his extensive wine list – a true unicorn Magnum of Champagne Emmanuel Brochet Le Mont Benoit L13!
