Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This remains quite fresh with its cool nose of apple, citrus and exuberant yeast elements that continue onto the crisp, intense and energetic flavors that terminate in a saline-inflected, wonderfully complex and beautifully well-balanced finale. In contrast to some '90s today, this is still in terrific shape and should continue to hold if not improve for years to come. In a word, lovely."

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 »

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne

92 points James Suckling: "Beautifully composed reduction across lemon citrus, white peach, cherries and deeper, more savory notes of spice and grilled nuts; fresh and complex at once. The palate's assertively flavored, yet runs on a smooth and fine textural thread. Acidity is paramount, redder fruits hold court here. Great balance and depth." (7/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "To judge by the cork, this bottling has some age, giving it a toasty as well as fruity character that adds complexity to this baked-apple and citrus-flavored wine. It also means that it needs no further aging and is delicious to drink ...Read More »

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.

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

It does not have the opinion-dividing thrill and tension of the Ultra Brut, but will probably find more friends. (SR)" (3/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine’s fres ...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.

Deutz "Brut Classic" Champagne

The result is a fairly friendly, moderately rich, easy-to-taste Brut that, while properly dry, is not in the least austere, and, when measured against its many non-vintaged Champenoise cousins, it proves to be a bit more complete than most. It is a solid, well-conceived Brut that will not disappoint." (12/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "An upbeat style in terms of aromas with citrus and stone fruits dom ...Read More »

(9/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "There's a yeasty note to this Champagne, with lightly honeyed flavors of pear, bread dough and red berries, all focused by fresh, citrusy acidity. It's quite firm and lively, but well-balanced, with lingering notes of graham cracker and smoke on the finish." (12/2010)

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.
