2009 Louise Brison Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Louise Brison Brut Champagne

If you liked the 2008, you are going to love the 2009 from Brison! This Champagne is composed of half Chardonnay, entirely barrel fermented, and half Pinot Noir that was fermented in two-thirds stainless and one-third barrel. This Champagne has perfect texture, medium body and a spectacular bead of compact streamers. It has aromas and flavors of cream, nuts and white fruit, and a very detailed, mineral-driven finish. It finishes quite dry, but I would never guess how little sugar has been added—only three grams per liter! The warm, ripe 2009 vintage had ... Read More »

2002 Krug Brut Champagne Back In Stock! Top Pick!
2002 Krug Brut Champagne

100 points James Suckling: "The much-anticipated 2002 has impeccable detail and depth with a lot of chalky, stony and flinty elements on the nose as well as a very fresh edge. The nose is very complex and wound up tight but presents itself as very integrated and compressed. There are aromas of lemon rind, lime juice and a lime custard all at once, complemented in turn by a super-restrained hazelnut-like edge. Undertones of brown mushrooms, chalky minerals and lemon leaf. The palate has a core of sizzlingly intense, concentrated chardonnay framed whitin a powerful phenolic structure ...Read More »

2005 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2005 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "Impressive concentration and power here. This is really assertive with ripe yellow orchard fruits and citrus within a core encased in a layer of more savory, toasty notes on both the nose and palate. There's that gentle hint of aldehyde that is the traditional stamp of the house plus savory woody notes, white mushrooms and some chalk and spices, too. The palate has a fleshy opening, filling out with peach and hazelnut flavors before a smooth ride to the finish. Approachable and complex. Drink it now through to 2020."

Full yet racy and intense. A beautiful center palate. Linear. Shows potential for aging but so good right now." (12/2016) 97 points Vinous: "The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground.

(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."

2008 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (ships as 1.5L) New!
2008 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (ships as 1.5L)

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Champagnes that we carry at any price. Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the grand cru of Oger called the Chenys and one in Mesnil called the Derriere Maison, this is among the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer. The wine shows the paradox of 2008 perfectly with great ripeness and scintillating acidity. Add in the richness and complexity of old massal-selected from grand cru, mid-slope sites and you have a must buy for any Champagne lover! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

2008 Louis Roederer Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deliciously ripe wine, full of fruit as well as a great mineral texture. It completely expresses the exceptional 2008 with all its structure. Still young, it’s all fruit and freshness that promise serious bottle aging. Drink this complex, serious wine from 2017. (RV)" (12/2014) 93 points Vinous: "The 2008 Brut races across the palate with gorgeous depth and resonance. Dried pear, spice, mint, anise and wild flowers meld together in the glass. Broad, ample and voluptuous, the 2008 possesses fabulous richness in all dimensions. Beams of acidity and minerality give the 2008 m ...Read More »

2008 A.D. Coutelas Vintage Brut Champagne

Angelique and Damien have 17 and one half acres, mostly in Villers sous Chatillon, but also in Ambonny, Bouzy, Vitry la Francois, and Troissy. Their family has been growing since 1809 and started making their own Champagnes in the 20s. This half and half blend of Meunier and Pinot Noir come from estate vines that average over 70 years old - among the oldest I have ever heard of in Champagne. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and finished with only six grams per liter of dosage. It is a very full-bodied wine, with super power in the middle, yet refr... Read More »

2010 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Roederer invested in a separate winery to produce its rosé, the facility completed in 2007, taking its classic saignée method wines to a new level. An estate-grown blend of pinot noir from the clay soils of Cumières with chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, this is an extraordinary vintage of Roederer Rosé. It’s a lithe wine, compelling for its precision rather than for any stylized complexity. In fact, it feels simple, naked, capturing the freshness of the grapes in pale pink energy. The transparent cherry and Honeycrisp apple flavors are inherently bal ...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.

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.

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.

2009 Egrot (formerly Elisabeth Goutorbe) Brut Grand Cru Champagne

This Champagne used to be called Elisabeth Goutorbe. Elisabeth changed the name over to her married name Egrot when she and her husband moved out of her parents facility in Ay, and into their own. This 100% Ay grand cru Champagne is composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, all from the family estate. Although the Champagne has no dosage whatsoever, it is still full and rich. It has a great nose of baguette toast, cream and some of that famous Ay chalk. The finish is long, clean and very dry, but not too strict. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

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."

The palate's bright, crisp and has attractive fresh lemon and peach-fruit flavours. It's a really tidy and more chiselled vintage for this wine."

1990 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne Back In Stock!
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)

2010 Pierre Paillard "Les Maillerettes" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne

Mirabelle, dried flowers and mint all develop nicely in the glass. Here, too, my impression is that the 2010 is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Dosage is 2.6 grams per liter.

There's a lot of deep-set complexity here. The palate has a bright, crunchy, and assertive burst of peach and lemon flavor on entry, while the Pinot takes the mid-palate with fleshy white cherries and smooth phenolics that hold through to the finish with gently nutty mushroom and cherry-pip flavors to close.

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.

This all-Chardonnay Champagne is very different from most that I have tried.

It has a pretty white-gold color and great focus and minerality that balance out its extroverted nutty, flowery flavors and aromas. It has a very persistent and intriguing finish and, at only six grams per liter of dosage, makes a great aperitif. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Bright and harmonious, with a rich, lasting finish of toast, chopped ...Read More »

2010 Launois Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne New!
2010 Launois Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

We began importing the Champagnes of Launois more than a decade ago, though we haven't been able to promote them properly because our allocations were very tight. Fortunately for us, Bernard Launois has decided to export more! Champagne Launois' wines are highly sought-after, so much so, in fact, that we've sold their Champagne to Champenois who can't get it at home! Bernard Launois does things differently than the rest of his neighbors, picking a week to 10 days later and using only massal-selected plants rather than the more common clones. All of the C...

2006 Fluteau "Symbiose" Brut Champagne

90 points Wine Spectator: "A lithe version from 2006, with a floral overtone, a lively bead and a subtle range of green melon, ground anise and star fruit flavors. A hint of smoke lingers on the clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2021. (Web-2015, AN)" K&L Notes: Made entirely from estate-grown fruit, the Symbiose is composed of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir from Gye-Sur-Seine in the southernmost part of Champagne. This wine is so clean, subtle and balanced that it will be finished before you know it. I think that is embodies all the best traits of this very good vintage; it is vibrant, pu... Read More »

1998 Dom Pérignon "P2" Brut Champagne

98 points Wine Spectator: "Offers precision and finely detailed form, powered by an expansive palate of flavor. 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. This is a wine with some real tension between complex ...Read More »

2008 Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Great elegance and finesse already on the perfectly brilliant and aromatic nose shows Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs Brut, displaying white and stewed apples with fine citrus flavors and discreet chalky aromas. The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish. Dosed with seven grams per liter, this extraordinary Blanc de Blanc Brut tastes drier than the Réserve ...Read More »

2006 Pol Roger "Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* It is the balance that stars with this wine. The fruit, acidity and mineral texture are held together in maturing harmony. Still young, the wine is still in the fruity spectrum and yet is very ready to drink now. The acidity and the link between the soft dosage and freshness are all in place. Drink now and until 2026. (RV)" (12/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "Pol's 2006 vintage is on form, showing attractive spicy red fruits, florals, and biscuity nutty characters. The palate's very bold, full of strawberry fruit flavor, ripe lemon and peach. Round, complete and ...Read More »
