Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the heartland of Chardonnay in Champagne comes this rich, creamy, apple-flavored wine. It has lively acidity, balanced with some sweetness from the dosage. It has weight and a crisp aftertaste." (12/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly floral, this creamy crowd-pleasing Champagne shows good balance, with a lively mix of Honeycrisp apple, passion fruit and smoked almond.

2009 Louise Brison Vintage Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Louise Brison Vintage Brut Champagne

If you liked the 2008, you are going to love the 2009 from Brison! This Champagne is composed of half Chardonnay, entirely barrel fermented, and one-half Pinot Noir that was fermented in two-thirds stainless and one-third barrel. This Champagne has perfect texture, medium body and a spectacular bead of compact streamers. It has aromas and flavors of cream, nuts and white fruit, and a very detailed, mineral-driven finish. It finishes quite dry, but I would never guess how little sugar has been added—only three grams per liter! The warm, ripe 2009 vintage ... Read More »

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.

Rated "Extraordinary" by the Underground Wine Journal, which writes: "This is a great rosé. Light pink in color it has an absolutely gorgeous perfume with raspberry and cherry fruit accented by floral citrus notes and a faint hint of spice.

2009 Elisabeth Goutorbe Brut Champagne

This 100% Ay grand cru Champagne is composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay all from the family estate. Although the Champagne has no dosage whatsoever, it is still full and rich. It has a great nose of baguette toast, cream and some of that famous Ay chalk. The finish is long, clean and very dry, but not too strict. Since she wasn't planning on selling these with this label (they are switching to the husbands name, but we got one last shipment under the Goutorbe label), she wrote over the 2005 turning them into 2009's!!!!

Le Brun de Neuville "Authentique Assemblage" Brut Champagne

Le Brun was named Champagne Producer of the Year, 2015 International Wine & Spirit Competition. This Champagne is made in the Seazanne, a terroir within Champagne whose product is rarely seen in the U.S. It is composed of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir and is aged for five years on the lees. This sur-lee aging is done on a cork rather that a crown cap, a process usually reserved for much more expensive wines, most famously Bollinger vintage. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Alexandre Le Brun "Tradition" Brut Champagne

Alexandre le Brun is a young winemaker in Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a 9th generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750 and their cellars were built in 1822. We were very pleased to meet him and are very excited to carry his wines. The Tradition is a blend of one third each of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This bottling is based on the 2011 vintage with 36 months on the lees.

Taittinger "La Française" Brut Champagne

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deliciously delicate Taittinger NV Brut La Francaise L2383PK01300 is strikingly buoyant and dominated by subtle scents of yeast-tinged flowers and foliage – honeysuckle and mint immediately come to mind – that allude to its roughly one-quarter Meunier component, with a luscious matrix of lime-drenched honeydew melon and apple well-supported by discreet residual sugar leading to a sustained and refreshing finish.

This Champagne is composed of even parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Marc estate in Fleury-la-Riviere in the heart of the Marne valley. The wine does not go through malolactic fermentation and is aged a minimum of three years on the lees. This elegant, restrained Champagne is dry and has the pin-point streamer of bubbles that fans of the expensive stuff love.

Baron Fuente "Esprit" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

This unique, all Chardonnay Champagne comes from a nine-and-a-half acre single vineyard in Saacy-sur-Marne called the Chantemanche. It might be the most western vineyard site in all of Champagne, and is actually so far west that it is in the Paris district, on the very edge of Champagne. It is aged for three years on the lees with reserve wines from three previous harvests. This creamy, nutty Blanc de Blancs is seamless, integrated and has good, refreshing lift on the finish.

If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, I think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor.

This wine is a blend of very old-vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rosé. This is wine exclusively for the patient, as the two terroirs that have come together in this bottle need a lot of time to marry. But when they have had the time, it is a spectacular example of what the care of two growers coupled with the variety of two great terroirs can do. I can't really think of anything to compare the ...

Jean Josselin "Audace" Brut Rose Champagne

This big, vinous rose is made entirely from estate grown Pinot Noir and given a full maceration with all of the skins in contact with all of the juice. The maceration is about 18 hours give or take depending on the harvest. This rose is a little darker than most and much more full bodied and full of flavor. That being said, it is still an elegant wine and one glass of it is never enough. The initial strawberry fruit quickly turns to Pinot savor and the finish is dry and refreshing. -Gary Westby

2005 Thienot Brut Champagne

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Fresh orange and pear aromas are complicated by chamomile, honey, herbs and fresh porcini. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense orchard fruit flavors braced by gentle acidity. A smoky, leesy nuance lingers on the long, supple finish. Drinking well now and showing good complexity." (11/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Champagne exhibits both the freshness of the vintage and a sense of toasty maturity.

Baron Fuente "Esprit" Brut Rosé Champagne

A blend of 50 % Pinot Meunier and 50 % Pinot Noir, this vibrantly-colored Rosé was made by saignée de cuvée, allowing the crushed grapes to soak in their sugary juices before pressing instead of whole cluster, direct pressing. What this means for you is bright, crisp fruit flavors throughout, with a delicate mousse. Enjoy as an aperitif, or with steamed salmon. Or with strawberries and cream, naturally.

(12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "There's lovely precision to the integration of this elegant rosé, offering a fine backbone of acidity and a light mousse. The flavors of poached pear, black cherry, fleur de sel, lemon zest and ginger are finely meshed, with a subtle vein of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2023. ...Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

92 points James Suckling: "A trademark nose with plenty of savory elements in the wood; nutty Pinot Noir realm, attractive red-fruited freshness, plus some grilled nuts too. The palate has a bold heart of gently spicy, peppery red fruit flavor delivered confidently right throughout." (7/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautiful, full rosé that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish." (12/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and creamy in texture, this offe ...Read More »

Agrapart "Terroirs" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is another fabulous wine. Here it is the combination of tension and weightlessness that is especially appealing. Sweet floral notes and a suggestion of mint meld into white orchard fruit in this effortless, totally gracious wine. All the elements meld together on the seamless, crystalline finish. The Terroirs is a blend of fruit sourced from Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, equal parts 2007 and 2008 vintages. This release was aged partly in 600-liter barrels. Dosage was 5 grams per liter.
