Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

Don't let the low price fool you; this is a great bottle of Champagne. The Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" is made of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 30% Meunier. A balanced cuvée in every way, this Champagne is clean and powerful at once. It has a natural toasty quality from spending five full years on the lees, and plenty of refreshing zip from the far northern location of the vineyards. No bottle in our inventory transports me to Champagne like this one. It is as true to the terroir and as pure as anything I could wish for! You don't have to settl... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne

Our best deal in pink bubbles! Fans of Billecart-Salmon take note: this is an elegant, dry style that is made entirely from estate-grown fruit in Brouillet. This Champagne is a blend of half and half Pinot Noir and Meunier. The color comes from 12% Meunier that is vinified red, from an old-vine plot that gets quite ripe. It is a very pretty tarnished pink color and has a lazy bead from over five years of aging on the lees. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid palate, but still finishes snappy and dry. The wine also has a nice mineral note... Read More »

Michel Arnould "Grand Cuvée" Brut Champagne

Exclusively from the 2009 harvest, although not labeled as such, this Champagne is composed of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. The Champagne has a graceful, delicate balance that Verzenay wines sometimes lack but with the signature hazelnut Pinot core. I found it to have creaminess to complement its racy cherry fruit on the palate, and an extraordinarily long, dry finish. It is dosed at 9 grams per liter: very dry! It will age very well. The Arnoulds own 27 acres in the village of Verzenay, a quite sizable holding in this high rent area. ... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Prestige Vielles Vignes" Champagne

Although not labeled as vintage, this Champagne is entirely 2008, and made from the oldest plots on the estate. Curiously, Paul-Vincent thinks that old vines should never be used to make vintage dated wine, because they tell more of the story of the land than of year, with deep roots protecting the plant from the vagaries of the weather. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Meunier and has a powerful, concentrated character that goes very well with charcuterie and other rich appetizers.

This Champagne comes from one plot of 70 year old Chardonnay vines in the Montagne of Reims village of Trepail. It is aged for three years on the lees and composed of half 2011 and half 2010. The Champagne has a chalky, creamy, bready nose and a concentrated impression on the palate. As one would expect from such ancient vines, it delivers the goods on the finish with plenty of chalk as well as a bit of honey and white fruit. This makes a perfect aperitif, but will also pair well with seafood such as seared scallops ore even raw oysters. -Gary Westby

Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a 9th generation winemaker whose family established themselves in Champagne in 1750 and built their cellars in 1822. This bottling is simply great! It is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is based on the 2005 vintage. It spent an incredible 8 years on the lees! It is full, rich and creamy with a lush character. The Chardonnay comes through on the finish with bright green apple fruit and a touch of minerality. (Scott Beckerley, K&L Wine Me... Read More »

Launois "Quartz" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

The Quartz all comes from the famous Chettilons parcel and has four atmospheres (59psi) of pressure instead of the normal six (88psi). While I would be hard pressed to tell by looking at or tasting this Champagne that it has lighter carbonation, it tastes very different from the Reserve due to the wonderful vineyard site. Since less yeast and sugar were added to the wine during bottling, it has less leesy flavor, and because there is less dissolved carbon dioxide in the wine the flavors of the grapes underneath shine more. Look for flavors of apple and b... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

The Ariston's vineyards are vastly different than those of the other blanc de blancs producers that we carry. The steeper slopes, less chalk and more fossils in the soil of Brouillet make for a rich, creamy style Chardonnay Champagne that will appeal to just about anyone. This is one of my favorite toasting Champagnes. All of the flavors are up-front; it is open knit and fun. It is a perfect way to start a party. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Barnaut "Authentique" Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright orange-pink. Red berries, citrus zest, brioche and smoky minerals on the deeply scented nose. Chewy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering focused strawberry and bitter blood orange flavors and a hint of dusty minerals. The mineral quality adds cut to the finish, which lingers with very good smoky tenacity. This Champagne could stand up to spicy, strongly seasoned foods." (12/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "Smoky, this austere version shows angular acidity and a firm bead, offering flavors of black currant, pomegranate, licorice snap and slivered almond ...Read More »

JM Seleque "Tradition" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
JM Seleque "Tradition" Brut Champagne

91 points Antonio Galloni: "Light yellow-gold. Vibrant, mineral-laced lemon and pear scents are complemented by notes of anise, chalky minerals and buttered toast. Juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors flesh out in the mid-palate, picking up a hint of honeysuckle. Finishes focused, stony and long. This bottling is made from the estate's youngest vines, which are reportedly around 35 years old now. (Josh Raynolds)" (1/2015)91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A cool and restrained nose features notes of yeast, various white flowers, citrus peel and green apple. There is good verve and lovely detail to the delicious, in ...Read More »

Franck Bonville "Prestige" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

92 points Wine Spectator: "A rich and smoky base note of roasted nut supports flavors of lemon meringue pie, quince paste, toasted coconut and cumin, and spun honey. There's lovely creamy texture here, with finely meshed acidity throughout. Drink now through 2020." (12/2012) K&L Notes: Rated Extraordinary by the Underground Wine Letter, which writes: "This is a gorgeous Champagne with richness, depth and complexity." This is stunningly rich Blanc de Blancs, with lots of rich, fresh cream, yet it still has the minerality and zing that one would expect from an all-Chardonnay Champagne. The Bonvi... Read More »

Charles de Cazanove Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Wine Spectator: "Refined, with well-meshed acidity providing a backbone for delicate flavors of dried currant, graphite, green plum, meringue and grapefruit zest. Fresh, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. (Web Only—2012)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark pink. Red berry and cherry scents are lifted by a zesty citrus pith quality. Offers juicy raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of anise. Clings nicely on the finish, which shows good energy and a slightly bitter edge. (JR)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: This rich, round rosé is a truly affordable luxury. Although thus far off the radar of wine critics, I th... Read More »
