Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne

92 points John Gilman: "The new release of Brut Premier is from the base year of 2012 and was disgorged in the spring of 2016, after spending three years aging on its fine lees. The wine is its customary blend of forty percent each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and twenty percent Pinot Meunier. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a complex and still youthful blend of apple, white peach, gentle leesiness, patissière, lovely soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and beautifully balanced, with excellent mid-palate depth, refined mousse, excell ...Read More »

Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne

92 points James Suckling: "A complex, reliable Champagne that would show well in all occasions thanks to its freshness and class. 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.

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.

Pierre Mineral "Vielle En Fut" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (Mesnil Sous Bois) Top Pick!
Pierre Mineral "Vielle En Fut" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (Mesnil Sous Bois)

This Champagne is made entirely from selected grand cru estate fruit from the village of Mesnil. It is fermented and aged in 600-liter new-oak casks before being bottled and aged four years on the lees. It has a super-rich nose of vanilla, sourdough toast and Mesnil minerals. In the mouth it's very racy and dry, not nearly as broad as the rich nose suggests. I think this is one of the ultimate lobster Champagnes in our stock, and will repay five years of cellaring with a gorgeous drink. If you love Selosse's Origine and Tarlant's Cuvée Louis, this is one... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Prestige Vieilles 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.

It is a pure, fresh and well-structured Brut that seems more elegant, complex and round than the Brut Réserve. The persistent finish is clear, fresh and well structured, with refreshing lemon flavors and a nice grip. My sample was said to be bottled in 2014 and disgorged in March 2017 with nine grams of dosage. There is good length and tension here as well as sweet cherry aromas in the aftertas ...Read More »
