Michel Arnould "Grand Cuvée" Brut Champagne

Exclusively from the 2009 harvest, although not labeled as such, this Champagne is composed of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. The Champagne has a graceful, delicate balance that Verzenay wines sometimes lack but with the signature hazelnut Pinot core. I found it to have creaminess to complement its racy cherry fruit on the palate, and an extraordinarily long, dry finish. It is dosed at 9 grams per liter: very dry! It will age very well. The Arnoulds own 27 acres in the village of Verzenay, a quite sizable holding in this high rent area. ... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne

Our best deal in pink bubbles! Fans of Billecart-Salmon take note: this is an elegant, dry style that is made entirely from estate-grown fruit in Brouillet. This Champagne is a blend of half and half Pinot Noir and Meunier. The color comes from 12% Meunier that is vinified red, from an old-vine plot that gets quite ripe. It is a very pretty tarnished pink color and has a lazy bead from over five years of aging on the lees. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid palate, but still finishes snappy and dry. The wine also has a nice mineral note... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

Don't let the low price fool you; this is a great bottle of Champagne. The Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" is made of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 30% Meunier. A balanced cuvée in every way, this Champagne is clean and powerful at once. It has a natural toasty quality from spending five full years on the lees, and plenty of refreshing zip from the far northern location of the vineyards. No bottle in our inventory transports me to Champagne like this one. It is as true to the terroir and as pure as anything I could wish for! You don't have to settl... Read More »

Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Rosé" Brut Rosé Champagne

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.

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.

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* There is lovely complexity to the distinctly yeasty nose that combines high-toned green apple, pear, white flowers and gentle citrus nuances. 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 »

The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g) and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture, smooth, fine and long. The citrus flavours give way to the driving surging acidity, thunderous acidity, really driving and powerful.

There is a tight structure, a hint of toast from bottle age and fresh acidity at the end. Ready to drink." (12/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "By far the best Piper Brut we’ve tasted in years, this is a full-bodied, oxidative, savory wine that would stand up to red meat.

This little bottle of rosé is delicious! This is the first time we have had the rosé from Bonville, an estate that grows only Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. Olivier Bonville was able to trade with Ambonnay celebrity-producer Paul Dethune for the red wine that goes into this blend of 92% Chardonnay and 8% Pinot Noir.

In an easygoing style, finishig with gentle cut and good length. (JR)" (1/2015) Wine Spectator: "A firm bead and lively acidity structure this broad bubbly, with tightly knit flavors of white raspberry, candied lemon zest, pickled ginger and salted almond. Drink now through 2017." (8/2014) K&L Notes: This is a delicious little half bottle! Baron Fuente is a negociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "s... Read More »

Jacquesson "Cuvée 737" Extra Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The latest numbered bottling in the Non Vintage series from Jacquesson, this has a beautiful balance between the lightest dosage, making it very dry, and intense structure and texture. It’s still young and fruity and worth some bottle age." (12/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "A skein of ground spice unravels through this mouthwatering Champagne, while a firm frame of acidity and a tight, refined bead supports flavors of crunchy pear, ripe white raspberry, pastry dough, smoked almond and lemon confit. Disgorged July 2013. Drink now through 2020." (11/2014)91 points Antonio Galloni: "The Brut ...Read More »

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne (375ml)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune. Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again. This is a fabulous Brut Premier. The Brut Premier is based on the 2007 vintage, with approximately 20% ...Read More »

Charles Heidsieck "Rosé Reserve" Brut Champagne (Previously $70.00)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Richly toasty and creamy in texture, with finely honed acidity lending a mouthwatering impression to lightly honeyed flavors of crème de cassis, toasted brioche, golden raisin, lemon curd and roasted almond. Offers a long, spiced finish. Drink now through 2024." (11/2014)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "With its onion-skin color, this already shows age. The palate, with its mature reflection and beautiful rounded texture, confirms this. Rich, well balanced and gently mature, it has retained enough red fruits to keep an element of freshness. It is a food wine, rich and full in the mouth. ...Read More »

From 47% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir. Bottled April 2012."

2002 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of dried apple, cream, mango and ginger follow through to a full, dense palate, but it’s very fine. The bead is so, so fine. The texture is like silk. Truly superb. I love the contrast between richness and freshness. It builds slowly on the palate and finishes so long and rich. This was 10 years on the lees. Mostly Pinot Noir." (10/2014)95 points Wine Spectator: "There's a sense of quiet elegance and grace to this harmonious Champagne. Refined and lacy in texture, with finely wrought acidity lending focus and length to the spice- and graphite-laced flavors of ripe a ...Read More »
