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

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 ripe, this beautiful wine is generous and still young, with just a touch of bitterness at the end.

Pears, hazelnuts, spices and crushed rocks all flow through to the tense, vibrant finish. It will be interesting to see if t ...Read More »

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.

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 »

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.

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.

2002 Gosset "Celebris" Extra Brut Champagne (1.5L)

96 points Vinous: "Magnificent in its complexity and pure breeding, the 2002 Extra Brut Celebris has it all. The Extra Brut style confers the signature Gosset drive, while extended time on the lees has given the wine just enough texture and body to fill out nicely. In the meantime, the aromas and flavors have mellowed into those that are typical of Champagne entering the first plateau of its maturity. The 2002 is vinous, fleshy and super-expressive, yet retains striking freshness throughout. Candied lemon peel, apricot jam, honey, mint, spices and sage form a compelling fa ...Read More »

2006 Deutz "Amour de Deutz" Brut

Even with all of its intensity, the 2006 preserves considerable freshness. Brioche, spice and yellow stone fruit nuances meld into the resonant, creamy finish. Readers will have to give the 2006 at least a year or two in bottle, possibly more, as it is tightly wound and energetic to the core.

2012 Bollinger "La Cote aux Enfant" Still Champagne

Made only in great vintages, this still Pinot Noir comes from the Bollinger family's oldest vines in Ay. This vineyard is one of the few ungrafted, pre-phylloxera sites in France. We managed to get 12 more bottles! This wine is a real Pinot Noir, one can see through it, and it is haunting rather than powerful. I would compare it to Volnay, with subtle strawberry fruit on the nose and considerable vivacious acidity. I would pair it with lamb during an all-Champagne meal!

(9/2014) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Cellar Selection * This is a superb Blanc de Blancs that boasts great minerality, texture and intense fruit flavor. It’s a finely structured wine, now approaching maturity with its apple, citrus and green pear notes. Lingering in the mouth, it is a beautifully long-lasting, pure wine. Drink until 2018 and ...Read More »

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 »

2004 Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle Cuvée Alexandra Brut Rosé

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." (12/2014) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "Michel Fauconnet macerates Pinot Noir and Chardonnay together (an 80-20 blend), allowing the color of Pinot’s skins to tint the wine, while the Chardonnay skins add to the wine’s structure, tightening the red fruit i ...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 »

2005 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "The 2005 is an impressively fresh Champagne that has an array of grilled nuts, nougat and chalky minerals ahead of red apple, lemon and grapefruit pith, red fruits and attractive red floral perfume. The palate's supple, smoothly cut, and has a wealth of concentrated dark and red berry fruit flavor that really speaks of pinot noir. This has warmth and richness; really bold and smooth with some spice to close too. The palate has a lot of power, weight and length. Will evolve to deliver brulée, toffee and mocha. Drink now or hold for five years." (7/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Dis ...Read More »

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic, with accents of bread dough, smoked almond and crème de cassis, this creamy Champagne is lightly chalky in texture and framed by firm acidity, with flavors of glazed apricot, orange blossom and rich hints of clover honey and coffee liqueur. Drink now through 2022." (11/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "A Champagne in good form, the nose has a playful contradictory nature with complexity that comes from deep within the DNA cast against some very fresh notes - lime citrus, lime leaf, lemon, nectarine, white cherry and deeper more brambly red fruits, plus gentle spices and fre ...Read More »

Krug "Grande Cuvée" 161 Ème Édition Brut Champagne

This 160th batch of Krug Grand Cuvee is based on 2005. Almost all of it was sold as Grand Cuvee, but a small amount was set aside to be sold in a six pack of Krug editions, which we split up to give more Krug lovers access to it. Going forward, each new batch of Krug will feature not only the ID on the back, but also the edition on the front, counting up from the foundation of the house in the 1800's. Since this was dated posthumously, it is bound to become a collectors item... That being said, it is all the better to drink it! -Gary Westby, K&L

1995 Charles Heidsieck "Blanc des Millénaires" Brut Champagne

96 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely and expressive, with the ethereal texture of fine silk, showing precise balance and integration and weaving together flavors of smoky toasted hazelnut, coffee liqueur, patisserie apple, candied ginger and a hint of white truffle. Fresh and vibrant, with a lasting finish. Drink now through 2027." (11/2012) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "We have now tasted this 1995 in three consecutive years, and it continues to show as one of the best wines of the vintage. It has the broadness typical of many '95s, but none of the heaviness. Instead, it's surprisingly fresh, brisk, bold. Scents o ...Read More »
