Le Brun de Neuville "Authentique Assemblage" Brut Champagne

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "From a blend that is primarily Chardonnay, this is soft and full in the mouth, with a creamy texture.

2009 Franck Bonville "Millesime" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Franck Bonville today is run by Olivier Bonville, the great grandson of Franck who acts as the proprietor of his family's estate. With 20 hectares of vineyards in the villages of Avize, Oger, Cramant and Mesnil, Bonville's wines are made entirely from Grand Cru-level Chardonnay and therefore labeled as Blanc de Blanc.

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.

Michel Arnould "Reserve" Brut Verzenay Champagne Top Pick!
Michel Arnould "Reserve" Brut Verzenay Champagne

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 is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, entirely from estate vineyards in the Grand Cru of Verzenay. This is a great party Champagne, since it is full of flavor yet refreshing and moreish. The hazelnut Pinot character so unique to the village of Verzenay is pronounced in this wine, and many good tasters have mistaken it for barrel fermented (it is actua... Read More »

Drawing on all three grapes (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), this has a complex grilled-nut and autolysis character overlayed across red berries and citrus fruits. Definitely a lot of reserve wine character here. The palate delivers lemons, grapefruit, peaches and mangoes in a refreshingly pure, fleshy style. The bright acidity, handy balance and tannins smoothly frame the finish. Drink now." (10/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Straw yellow and with a golden hue in colo ...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. Our current selection has a 2012 base wine. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid-palate, but still finishes snappy an... Read More »

Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors.

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 »

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 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 had ... Read More »

It is composed of 100% Pinot Noir with a 2011 base wine blended with 2009 and 2010 vintage, 50% of which is reserve stocks. This is a clean style of Pinot Noir with fine acidity and a small bead. Frothy and just plain lovely! Watch the bubbles go on and on and on when it is in the glass. Initially, there are baked apple flavors followed a mid-palate of grapefuit and nectarine leading to a creamy finish. A very small 15,000 bottle production. Winemaker Vivien Lamoureux i...

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 »

The Veuve Clemence gets four years of aging on the lees to the Reserve's three, and comes from older vineyards. They are both entirely estate-grown, Grand Cru Chardonnay. Before now, this cuvee was only available for the French market, but because of our great relationship with Launois, we were able to convince them to sell us a little. If you like it, don't hesitate--they may not have more for us the next time I order.

Crisp and fresh, it’s delightfully tangy and bright with acidity, citrus and juicy apple flavors. It is made to be a great apéritif style with its fruity, light aftertaste.

Gosset "Excellence" Brut Champagne

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Flinty at first, this yields scents of orange blossoms and jasmine. It's a rich and robust Champagne, balanced by firm minerality. For sea bass roasted with chanterelles." (12/2011) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tense and crisp, this is a balanced food-friendly Champagne. It is dry, and its apple- and citrus-like acidity has rounded out with some bottle age. The acidity cuts right through to give the wine a great lift of freshness on the finish. (RV)" (9/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Excellence is a pretty, expressive wine that makes a good introduction to the house style. Clean veins of minerality ...Read More »

Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignee Champagne Top Pick!
Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignee Champagne

90 points Vinous: "(all Pinot Noir; 10 g/l dosage; L4880 14 073): Bright orange-pink. Sexy floral lift to the aromas of red berries, blood orange and buttered toast. Spicy and pliant on the palate, offering ripe raspberry and tangerine flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Mineral and lees notes build slowly on the clinging, spicy finish, which leaves bitter berry skin and floral nuances behind. (JR)" (1/2015) K&L Notes: The Fleury rosé is made entirely of Pinot Noir from Courteron, in the southern part of Champagne. Locals proudly say that their town is closer to Chablis than Reims, and...

Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This deep pink rosé starts off from a delicate scent of spice and roses, strawberries and the freshly turned earth of a garden. It grows more powerful and grand with air, building fresh raspberry pinot vinosity, a fragrant essence of limestone and fruit that lasts." (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 »

Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (375ml)

92 points James Suckling: "A very appealing style that captures the elegance of chardonnay in a way that is still immensely satisfying. The aromas are all based around lemon, grapefruit, fresh floral notes and stone fruits. The palate delivers a ripe impression, flavorsome and full, with peach custard and lemon brulée. Acidity is nicely placed below." (7/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Light yellow-gold. Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals. Picks up floral and ginger nuances with ...Read More »

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.

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne (375ml)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* There is lovely complexity to the distinctly yeasty nose that combines high-toned green apple, pear, white flowers and gentle citrus nuances. The clean and sleek flavors are supported by a crisply firm but fine mousse where the finish is medium dry and lingering. It's not all that often that I suggest that readers cellar NV Brut but this is an example that absolutely cries out for it. I suspect that the texture will materially change for the better (i.e. become creamier) and better depth will be in the offing as well. Put it this way: this ...Read More »

Drappier "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

91 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, smoky Champagne, exhibiting toast, brioche and roast chestnut character that mixes with flavors of quince paste, crystallized honey and candied orange peel. Fine-grained, with a long, nut-tinged finish." (11/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Carte d’Or is a very pretty, entry-level wine graced with expressive dried pears, apricots, flowers and mint. Delicate and polished throughout, the Carte d’Or should drink nicely for the next few years. Fresh, floral notes add lift on the finish.
