2009 Franck Bonville "Millesime" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Franck Bonville "Millesime" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Franck Bonville today is run by Olivier Bonville, the great grandson of Franck who acts as the proprietor of his family's estate. With 20 hectares of vineyards in the villages of Avize, Oger, Cramant and Mesnil, Bonville's wines are made entirely from Grand Cru-level Chardonnay and therefore labeled as Blanc de Blanc. Their wines always have a wonderful richness balanced by an incredibly chalky minerality that pierces through the Chardonnay flavor. The standard Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc is one of the most popular and successful wines in the history of K&L... Read More »

2008 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 750ml (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! Unfortunately, because of the shape of... Read More »

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 »

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."

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."

2010 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Wine & Spirits: "*Cellar Selection* 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 ...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.

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...

2005 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Still very young, this holds great potential. Rich, full-bodied and densely structured, it is a wine first, sparkling second. Ripe apple and peach flavors partner with a strongly mineral texture. It needs to age more in bottle, so drink from 2016." (12/2014) 93 points James Suckling: "This has terrific composure, among the fresher and better-presented of the vintage in terms of aromas. It's toasty with grilled hazelnuts, chalky and flinty.

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.

Dried apricots, honey, wild flowers and anise all blossom in the glass, but the 2009 is first and foremost a wine of structure. A creamy, textured finish rounds things out nicely. The combination of a ripe year and the non-dosage style work beautifully. The Terre de Vertus emerges from the Les Barillers and Les Faucherets lieux-dits. The Terre de Vertus is non-dosé.

Gorgeous and flamboyant. Sexy. Drink now or hold. Decant before if you want to have the chalk undertones, a reflection of the great soils of Champagne." (12/2016) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "From a late harvest saved by fine fall weather, this 1998 is part of a new program at Dom Pérignon, released after extended aging on the lees, disgorged when Richard Geoffroy considers the wine to be reaching its second peak of develo ...Read More »

Kept on the lees for at least nine years to smooth the tannins the 2004 reveals a weightless power on the palate.

Thanks to this the Champagne is enriched with more complex and more refined aromas.

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."

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

92 points Vinous: "Paillard's 2010 Extra-Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Maillerettes Grand Cru shows the greater power and overall resonance of Pinot Noir compared to the 2010 Blanc de Blancs Les Mottelettes, which naturally features Chardonnay. 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.

Disgorged in November 2015 with a dosage of 2.6 grams, this cuvée (which did not see any oak during the vinification) opens with a deep and ripe, very precise and complex bouquet.

The flavors are bright and lifted throughout, but it is the wine's lithe, gracious shape that stands out most.

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. Instead of coming from the pure chalk of the Côte des Blancs, it is all from Festigny, on the east facing slopes of the Flagot River that runs through the village. 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)

98 points James Suckling: "2004 Salon weaves together immense complexity with stunning purity and makes instant impact on the nose with fresh-baked pastry and brioche, chalky minerals, fresh white mushroom, cucumber, lemon curd and striking lemon and lime citrus fruits. The palate has an almost smoky mineral thread, toasty autolytic flavors build and expand through the mid-palate, opening to grapefruit and ripe white peach flavours, lemon sorbet and very lightly grilled hazelnuts to close. This is an impressively layered Blanc de Blancs in which bright acidity supports the flavors ...Read More »

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Revelation" Brut Champagne

Le Brun was named Champagne Producer of the Year, 2015 International Wine & Spirit Competition. Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker in Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750, and their cellars were built in 1822. The Revelation is indeed that. A revelation! It is 100% Meunier with a low four grams per liter dosage. Based upon the 2009 vintage, with five years on the lees. It has a nice clean character with bright yellow and red fruits.

2009 Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

95 points Wine & Spirits: "From Roederer’s grand cru vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Cramant, this is a chardonnay that’s both ample in its flavor and quiet in its delivery. Broadened by long aging on the lees, almost tropical in its ripeness, this wine’s firm underlying acidity presents all the flavor with clarity, rising toward mineral notes in the finish. One taster suggested that it is rich enough to serve with foie gras on toast with plum jam." (12/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Blanc de Blancs Vintage is mainly from Avize (80%), but chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon is aiming fo ...Read More »

2006 Pol Roger Vintage 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) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep ...Read More »

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

98 points Vinous: "One of the highlights in this tasting, the 2006 Cristal Rosé is simply stunning. A vertical, towering wine, the 2006 Cristal Rosé is a thrill a minute, with a compelling interplay of aromatics and exquisitely layered fruit, all supported by a real feeling of phenolic intensity. While the 2007 is seductive, the 2006 is virile and imposing, with the statuesque lift of a Giacometti sculpture. All the elements meld together in a complete, alluring Champagne that will continue to drink beautifully for many decades. In 2006, the Pinot Noir was already being fa ...Read More »

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (1.5L)

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." (4/2015) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "With some age, this is a gloriously ripe and toasty wine. It has a rich character emphasized by the r ...Read More »
