2009 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

97 points Decanter: "Long lingering finish. A great and supremely elegant Champagne. (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. Lots of dried-apple and pineapple character with bread dough and flan flavors. The bubbles are so fine you almost don't notice them. Very vinous style. Drink now." (10/2016) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Cellar Selection*** The latest incarnation of this famous Champagne now comes from Roderer's own vineyards, a good portion of which are run on biodynamic lines.

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 »

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 »

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) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Grand Siècle Grande Cuvée is a Grand Cru Brut based on 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir from a total of eleven villages. The youngest release is a blend of the (declared) vintages 2002, 1999 and 1998, and ha ...Read More »

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "I believe that the 2005 DP is the best since 2002, which remains the best recent vintage and is probably only eclipsed by the amazing 100-point 1996. The 2005 is a full-bodied DP with so much richness and loads of ripe fruit such as pineapple and papaya. It has a wonderful, creamy texture and a long and intense finish. It’s a Champagne that fully satisfies but at the same time challenges you with its strength, depth and persistence on the palate." (7/2015) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* With some age, this is a gloriously ripe and toasty wine. It has a rich character ...Read More »

Krug "Grande Cuvée" 160 Ème Édition Brut Champagne

This 160th batch of Krug Grand Cuvée is based on 2004. Almost all of it was sold as Grand Cuvée, 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 1800s. 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 Champagne... 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.

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 »

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. Smooth and creamy on the palate, the 2006 is all about t ...Read More »

2006 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Veuve Clicquot’s prestige cuvée is named after the widow Clicquot, the great lady who built up the house in the early 19th century. 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." (12/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and graceful, this seamlessly knits a subtle streak of smoke-tinged minerality with flavors of almond financier, poached pear, candied kumquat and crème de cassis, focused by vibrant acidity and a refine ...Read More »

1998 Dom Pérignon "P2" Brut Champagne

The layers of ripe crushed blackberry and glazed apricot fruit complement the saline-tinged minerality and oyster shell notes, graced by hints of pastry, honeycomb and exotic spice. Mouthwatering and persistent on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030. (AN)" (12/2014) 96 points James Suckling: "A P2 release indicating this has been matured to the 2nd Plenitude, the middle stage of Dom Pérignon's three-phase life as defined by Richard Geoffroy.

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.

Offers a soft, creamy finish. (AN)" (12/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor.

The palate has the same layered, discreet complexity. Flavors of crisp lemon and white peach run smooth amid gently piercing, fine acidity. Terrific balance and depth here."

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.

Rich and vivid, with a lasting finish. (AN)" (11/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pale gold, greenish shimmering 2002 Rare Millesime – 30% Pinot Noir and 70% Chardonnay – offers a very intense and rich, yet fresh nose of exotic fruit aromas of pineapples, mango, kiwi and passion fruit.

A blend of roughly equal thirds of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier."

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. Vinous and ample, the 2004 Rosé will drink well for decades. The 2004 just keeps getting better with time in bottle.

2006 Philipponnat "Clos de Goisses" Brut Champagne

96 points Vinous: "The 2006 Clos des Goisses is stellar, but it is also going to need quite a bit of time to come into its own. Powerful and ample in the best of the Goisses style, the 2006 hits the palate with serious intensity. Orchard fruits, lemon oil, white flowers and almonds are some of the many notes that open up in the glass, but, as is often the case with young Goisses, it is the wine's gravitas that is front and center. Even with all of its overtness, though, the 2006 retains striking, crystalline purity. I imagine the 2006 will reward Champagne lovers with many ...Read More »

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Fascination" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

Alexandre Le Brun is the smallest producer that we import, or even carry from Champagne at just 7.5 acres.

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne

Interestingly, while the 2005 Blanc is quite supple and expressive today, the Rosé is very tight, something that probably bodes quite well for the future. In 2005, the Pinot Noir is quite high at around 55-60% of the blend. Needless to say, it is going be fascinating to see how the 2005 Rosé develops over the coming years and decades.

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 »

Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright orange-pink. Heady mineral- and yeast-accented aromas of dried red berries, blood orange, buttered toast and tea rose. Densely packed and expansive on the palate, offering intense raspberry, cherry compote and floral pastille flavors and a smoky overtone that gains strength with aeration. The mineral quality comes back strong on the silky, focused finish, which goes on and on. An outstanding blend of power and finesse. (ST)" (12/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Chalky in texture, this firm rosé is finely integrated, with a rich, smoky underpinning and a subtle mesh of ...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)

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 »

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

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now." (12/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light orange. Tangerine, pear and flowers on the nose, which is complicated by a note of fennel. Broad and sappy but dry, with lively orange and strawberry flavors and a subtle note of spice cake. Weightier on the finish, which features an exotic note of spicy herbs. This Champagne’s delicate touch will make it work well with simple seafood di ...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 »
