2006 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2006 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

97 points Vinous: "The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today. After an irregular summer that saw elevated temperatures in July followed by cooler, dam ...Read More »

2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Barrel fermentation gives this wine ornate complexity, while its crisp structural lines make it feel very contemporary French. The plump red fruit races with dynamism, extending the suppleness of the texture into more dramatic territory than where Champagne often ventures, and lasts with a gentler, floral grace. A youthful ten-year-old wine, this is built for long development in the cellar." (12/2013) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*A Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2013* A blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay, this is opulent and full bodied, with toast and wood flavors. Rich and rip ...Read More »

Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Krug’s NV Brut Grande Cuvee ID 112001 -- disgorged already over the winter of 2011-2012 but then further aged before release -- reinforces the belief that, thankfully, even wine lovers of modest means who occasionally splurge on Krug Grande Cuvee will be rewarded with a wine that need not fear comparison with this house’s more limited and far more expensive bottlings, nor for that matter with any other wines of Champagne. The harmonious juxtaposition of creaminess and lees enrichment with bright, juicy citricity and of expansive richness with levity is s ...Read More »

2006 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2006 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "Deep Pinot-driven presence is the first and lasting impression. Power with control. Superfine bead, bread and spiced biscuits, candied ripe red fruits and a sense of tight-knit complexity. Some grapefruit, lemon pith & gently flinty notes too - impressive nose. In the mouth it is rich, powerful, mouth-filling and flavoursome with a core of the same biscuity red fruit flavour, savoury nutty notes and a wrap of assertive, persistent acidity that holds rich powerful flavour deep and focused whilst maintaining a polished, gently creamy texture. Long chalky b ...Read More »

2007 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2007 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

97 points Vinous: "Long-time Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon has produced yet another in a string of superb Champagnes with the 2007 Cristal. Rich, powerful and enveloping, the 2007 takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. The aromatics alone are captivating, but then the wine opens on the palate, revealing layer after layer of flavor to match a multi-dimensional, kaleidoscopic personality that will leave Champagne lovers weak at the knees. The 2007 is 58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir, which is to say a bit more Chardonnay-leaning than is the norm. The 2007 i ...Read More »

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." (12/2014) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. A heady, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes dried pear, buttery brioche, lemon curd and anise, plus a smoky topnote.

2005 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "With just a touch of bottle age giving a toasty character, this impressive wine is already showing some maturity. That said, the apple and citrus character, the mineral tight texture and crisp acidity promise some aging. The wine conveys a sense of elegance, intensity and richness. Drink now, but the wine will also age." (6/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Vibrant pear and melon aromas are complicated by suggestions of ginger, brioche and smoky minerals. Dry, smoky and precise, offering intense orchard and pit fruit flavors that gain weight with aeration. A dusty mine ...Read More »

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.

2000 Krug Brut Champagne

97 points Wine & Spirits: "When first released two years ago, this wine showed some of the exoticism of the 2000 vintage, the broad flavors ranging from lobster broth to lemon zest and star anise. As it has matured, the wine’s richness is at once more baroque and more seamlessly woven into a deep golden beauty. Rather than fresh, it feels brisk and lithe. The wine’s fragrance is layered in deep complexities and elevated to sunny high notes. A glorious vintage of Krug."

This is an impressive wine, full of flavor and great concentration." (12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of marzipan and gumdrop add richness to the flavors of patisserie apple, lemon curd, smoke and honeycomb in this firm, well-cut version. Offers a finely detailed bead and a lasting finish, with a hint of blanched almond. Drink now through 2025."

The flavors are bold, rich and beautifully resonant from start to finish. Raspberry, cranberry, smoke, spice and crushed rocks build to the stunning, powerful finish.

2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The depths of this wine, with its layers of fruit and steeliness, are superb. Even after 12 years, it still needs to age further. Drink from 2018. Cellar Selections."

This latest incarnation is just showing signs of ripe toasty maturity. It is rich and soft with a high dosage, in the house style, with a full panoply of lime, red apple and apricot. Drink now and until 2022."

Offers a soft, creamy finish. Drink now through 2018." (12/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor. It is taut with a cool feel, still young in the bottle and worth aging a year." (12/2012) K&L Notes: This is one of the best Champagnes we carry regardless of price.

Mouthwatering and persistent on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030."

Krug Brut Rosé Champagne

It captures Pinot Noir with the vinous reality of a grand cru Burgundy, elevating those flavors into a more delicate ecstasy of taste. The brisk freshness of the wine might bring you to a cool limestone cave and just-picked fraises des bois. The complexity of the reserve wine lifts the palate to a more celestial realm.

Densely packed and palate-staining, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors, along with floral pastille and buttered toast qualities.

The palate's bold, assertive and full of flavor with really expansive orchard fruits. It's pared back to reveal a dry, essence-like finish with length and poise aplenty." (7/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Graceful and structured by firm, focusing acidity, this delivers flavors of apricot tart, white raspberry, raw almond and lemon preserves, with a hint of crystallized honey on the vibrant, ethereal mousse. Offers a persistent, lightly smoky fini ...Read More »

2005 Jacquesson "Champs Cain" Avize Brut Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "Very attractive fresh yeasty bread dough notes. Really impressive freshness on this long aged Blanc de Blanc, with chalky lemon and lime essence, some amazing finesse and aromatic purity here. The palate has a wealth of layering, texturally superior. It has impressive build and depth, and acidity sits under richly flavorsome lemon and peach fruit.

1992 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Really taut, tight wine, its mature toastiness embedded in a steely, mineral, very dry texture. The acidity is assertive, wonderfully refreshing, so crisp. It may be 18 years old, but it looks likely to age for several years yet." (12/2010) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "*no tasting note given*" (12/2000) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very fine aromas of quinine, lemon, lime, minerals and gingery; lightly musky suggestion of yeast autolysis. Very intensely flavored and solidly structured but already quite accessible and open to inspection. Slightly aggressive finish shows excellent persistence. Doesn't offer the compl ...Read More »
