(ME)" (10/2016) 97 points James Suckling: "A very rich and full-bodied Cristal that harks back to 2006 or 1989 in style. It's round and rich, which underlies the ripeness of the vintage.

Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle" Brut Champagne

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée has always been nonvintage, a blending of top wines from top years. It remains an exceptional wine, not quite dry and with a tinge of softness, but so elegant and balanced. This bottling has just the right amount of maturity, hinting at toast while guarding every iota of fruitiness.

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.

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.

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.

There's a lot of deep-set complexity here.

2004 Moët & Chandon "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.

2006 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Elizabeth" Rosé Champagne

94 points Vinous: "The 2006 Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon is powerful, intense and also classically austere in its make up. Crushed flowers, mint, red berries and cranberries are all finely sketched. The 2006 finishes with striking mineral-driven precision, and while it doesn’t have the opulence or exuberance of the 2002, it is still a very pretty and appealing Champagne. The Elisabeth Salmon is 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay, with about 8% still Pinot Noir. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. 94+ Points (AG)" (8/2016) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this balances ripe r ...Read More »

Spicy orange zest and honeydew on the fragrant, mineral-accented nose. Dry and tightly focused, offering lively Meyer lemon and melon flavors and a deeper suggestion of nectarine. Finishes with building floral character and excellent tangy persistence, leaving bitter citrus zest and dusty mineral notes behind.

2002 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Vinous: "A mysterious, beguiling beauty, the 2002 Dom Ruinart Rosé boasts fabulous intensity and pure resonance. Tangerine, exotic spices, mint, crushed rose petals and sweet red berries blossom in the glass. Still, my impression is that the 2002 is holding back much of its ultimate potential, as it remains tight and much less expressive than so many other wines of the year. When the 2002 finally emerges fully, it is going to be truly monumental. Disgorged September 2012. 96+ (AG)" (11/2014) 95 points James Suckling: "With a true 'eye of partridge' nose, this has the boldness of the 2002 vin ...Read More »

2004 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Tightly coiled and exceptionally beautiful, the 2004 boasts fabulous intensity, class and pedigree. The flavors are vibrant, chiseled and crystalline in their precision. Time in bottle is doing wonders for the 2004. This is a tremendous showing. Disgorged June 2013.

The palate's bright and crisp and really has an air of fleshy depth and refinement. There's also a great warm, toasty finish that displays grilled hazelnuts. Great now through to to 2020 and beyond."

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.

96 points James Suckling: "A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosé develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosé." (10/2016) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderfully aromatic and finely detailed, with a layered profile of dried apricot, raw almo ...Read More »

2006 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Rose Champagne

95 points James Suckling: "Take Taittinger's prodigious chardonnay and add 15% pinot noir to create this masterful prestige rosé that has a mid red hue and plenty of assertive pinot red fruits on the nose. Really impressive aromas of Turkish delight, cherries, chalky minerals and pink grapefruit. The palate has a fine core with some bolder red fruit flavors and pinot noir weight. Really impressive, deep and even, with much to come if you hold for three to five years before drinking." (7/2015) 95 points Vinous: "Taittinger's 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rosé has come along nicely over the last six months. ...Read More »

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 »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

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) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A balanced rosé framed by mouthwatering acidity, with a lively bead and hints of smoke and saline accenting the dried strawberry, lemon meringue pie and kumquat notes. Zesty finish. (AN, Web-2015)" 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Based on the same blend as Yellow Label with 12 percent pinot noir added, this is round, creamy and ...Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

92 points James Suckling: "This famous Yellow Label is is in great shape with a really fresh and complex integrated feel to it from head to toe. The nose has plenty of lemon and grapefruit citrus, as well as lightly toasted hazelnuts and ripe, summery fruits. On the palate it has the trademark assertive style, some useful cut and plenty of lemon biscuit flavor. A great all-rounder: Drink now." (10/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and lightly toasty, this elegant Champagne layers flavors of cassis, crushed hazelnut and lemon meringue pie on the creamy bead. Drink now through 2019.

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

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 »

1990 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne

97 points Vinous: "Krug's just-released 1990 Collection is magnificent. Remarkably fresh for a 26 year-old wine, the 1990 Collection captures the Krug house style at its very best. Floral notes meld into hints of apricot, chamomile, orchard fruit, vanillin and sweet spices. On the palate, the 1990 is creamy, vivid and super-expressive, but what is most intriguing is how fresh the Collection is relative to Vintage Champagne, which has always been a heavier, more oxidative wine. Readers who can find the 1990 should not hesitate, as it is stellar. 97+ (AG)" (12/2016)

The deep golden-colored wine offers a deep and vinous, very clear and elegant nose of sweet cherries, stewed and baked apples, ripe stone fruits, cinnamon, chalk, brioche, sweet paprika, orangeade and dashes of lemon juice.
