2002 Krug Brut Champagne

100 points James Suckling: "The much-anticipated 2002 has impeccable detail and depth with a lot of chalky, stony and flinty elements on the nose as well as a very fresh edge. The nose is very complex and wound up tight but presents itself as very integrated and compressed. There are aromas of lemon rind, lime juice and a lime custard all at once, complemented in turn by a super-restrained hazelnut-like edge. Undertones of brown mushrooms, chalky minerals and lemon leaf. The palate has a core of sizzlingly intense, concentrated chardonnay framed whitin a powerful phenolic structure ...Read More »

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

This is one of the best Champagnes we carry regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters acres Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this is Bonville's top of the line Champagne. The vines were planted in the late twenties or early thirties and the vineyard is ideally located in the mid slope of this Grand Cru village. The wine is made entirely from the 2008 harvest and is all Chardonnay. Olivier Bonville ferments and ages the juice in old oak casks before bottling.

2006 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

97 points Decanter: "The 2006 brings back all the wonder of classic Comtes: the innocence of a joyful childhood, a free-as-air dash through endless blue daylight and a breathless plunge into an icy mountain rock pool. A wine of coiled energy, focus, precision and minerality that bores to the very core of the finest chalkfields of the Côte des Blancs." (1/2016) 97 points Vinous: "The 2006 Comtes de Champagne is striking, especially in the way it brings together elements of ripeness and freshness in a hypothetical blend of the 2002 and 2004.

2002 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* With its gold color and mature, toasty flavors, this is possibly the greatest Winston Churchill ever. It has weight and richness, with a dense, full and rich texture. It’s in perfect balance, bringing together maturity and crisper apple and green plum fruit flavors that are cut with lemon. A mineral edge gives a nervy character that will allow this magnificent wine to age further.

2004 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fascinatingly copper-colored 2004 Dom Pérignon Rosé has a beautifully delicate bouquet of red fruits,and indicates a great purity and freshness. Kept on the lees for at least nine years to smooth the tannins the 2004 reveals a weightless power on the palate. It has a deep and concentrated, highly elegant Pinot character (though Chardonnay and Pinot are more or less 50/50), and is full of finesse and freshness. The 2004 is intense and vinous, yet pure, precise and extremely fine. Adorable. (SR)" (6/2016) 96 points Vinous: "The 2004 Dom Pérignon Rosé has put on remarkable ...Read More »

2004 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

97 points Vinous: "A Champagne of crystalline precision, the 2004 Dom Pérignon once again shows off its pedigree and total class. Everything about the 2004 speaks to nuance. The flavors are bright and lifted throughout, but it is the wine's lithe, gracious shape that stands out most. Pear, slate, white flowers, sage and crushed rocks abound in a Dom Pérignon built on cool, brisk energy. Today, the 2004 is simply dazzling, with plenty of upside for the future.

Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Rosé" Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L) *Oversized, Ships as a 3L

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. And its latter palate grip is exactly what one should expect from the genre. While service with lig ...Read More »

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. Hints of toasted almond and vanilla-tinged cookie dough lend a faintly confectionary cast that manages to harmonize with the dominant fruiti ...Read More »

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

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 »

2004 Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle - Cuvée Alexandra" Brut Rosé Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "First produced in the 1987 vintage to celebrate the marriage of owner Bernard de Nonancourt’s eldest daughter, this bottling is now mature. Ripe, it still retains plenty of red fruits while also allowing the toasty character to show through. It’s a rosé that calls for food, a rich and balanced wine that is just perfect to drink now. (RV)" (12/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based on synced-fermented 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from company-owned grand cru vineyards, the salmon-pink colored 2004 Alexandra Grande Cuvée Rosé displays a very subtle and fresh bouquet of great eleg ...Read More »

Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Salmanazar (9L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and finely knit, this vibrant Champagne is framed by racy acidity that enlivens the flavors of ripe boysenberry, lemon zest, brioche and chopped hazelnut. Spice and chalk notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2018. (AN)" (10/2015) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine’s fresh fruit and firm structure match bright lemon zest flavors with limestone severity. The fine bubbles add to the clean sensation of the finish. It’s spicy, tight and formidable, a wine to kick-start a dinner party." (12/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh and crisp, this is bright with acidity as well as warmer fruitiness. I ...Read More »

Drappier "Quattuor" Brut Champagne

We only recieved an 18 bottle allocation of this great Champagne rarity. It is composed of 25% Arbanne, 25% Petit Meslier, 25% Pinot Blanc and 25% Chardonnay from the Drappier estate in Urville and dosed at a very low 4.2g/l of sugar. These are grapes that are so rare in Champagne that they aren't even on the test for Champagne educators! -Gary Westby

Drappier "Sans Soufre" Brut Zero Blanc de Noirs Champagne Magnum 1.5L

91 points Wine Spectator: "Floral on the nose, but dry and minerally on the palate, offering subtle notes of white cherry, mandarin orange peel, fresh ginger and almond skin, all set in a chalky texture. Leans toward the austere side, but the balance is there, so enjoy this with light seafood or shellfish. Disgorged May 2016. Drink now through 2020." (10/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Nature Pinot Noir Zero Dosage André et Michel Sans Ajout de Souffre is the same wine as the Brut Nature Pinot Noir Zero Dosage (although from different base vintages) vinified and aged with no sulfur. This is a rel ...Read More »

1996 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (97BH, 96RP, 96WE, 95VN, 94ST, 93WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A distinctly reticent but elegant nose with a purity of expression that is truly impressive to experience as it's relatively high-toned and while the yeast comes up with air, it's relatively muted at present, combining with intense, precise and superbly detailed and complex flavors that culminate in an explosive and wonderfully long finish. This may very well rival the sublime '90 in time even if it's not quite as concentrated. This is still a baby so there is absolutely no rush whatsoever." (10/2007)
