Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the heartland of Chardonnay in Champagne comes this rich, creamy, apple-flavored wine. It has lively acidity, balanced with some sweetness from the dosage. It has weight and a crisp aftertaste." (12/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly floral, this creamy crowd-pleasing Champagne shows good balance, with a lively mix of Honeycrisp apple, passion fruit and smoked almond. Drink now through 2018." (12/2015) Jancis Robinson: "100% Chardonnay from Oger, Cramant and Avize. From a 50-ha estate. Olivier Bonville is the third generation to make wine here. Super-clean fresh nose, smells like a health sc ...Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne

Rated "Extraordinary" by the Underground Wine Journal, which writes: "This is a great rosé. Light pink in color it has an absolutely gorgeous perfume with raspberry and cherry fruit accented by floral citrus notes and a faint hint of spice. There is a creamy texture with a nice crispness underneath and the fruit is complex with raspberry, cherry, and citrus offset by a kiss of vanilla. Irresistible now this is really terrific." K&L's notes: This is the first time we have had the rosé from Bonville, an estate that grows only Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. Oli... Read More »

2002 Thiénot "La Vigne aux Gamins" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A concentrated, dense wine, this is round and rich with fresh apple flavor, but also a hint of maturity—a touch of cookie and almonds on the finish. This is an impressive wine, full of flavor and great concentration." (12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of marzipan and gumdrop add richness to the flavors of patisserie apple, lemon curd, smoke and honeycomb in this firm, well-cut version. Offers a finely detailed bead and a lasting finish, with a hint of blanched almond. Drink now through 2025." (11/2013) K&L Notes: This rarity comes from a miniscule one-and-a-quarter acre plot of the Thie... Read More »

Delamotte Brut Champagne

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The majority-Chardonnay (most of that from Avize, Cramant and Oger) Delamotte NV Brut L04612 is 35% Pinot Noir (from the Montagne de Reims); 10% Meunier (from the Vallee de la Marne); and spends three years sur latte as well as six or more months in bottle prior to release. Officially, it is grand cru. The bottle in question is from vintage 2008 with 25% reserve wine. Clover and apple blossom with a discreet whiff of chalk in the nose lead to an oily and expansive yet buoyant and refreshing palate, its fresh apple and pear suffused with savory sweet-sali ...Read More »

Agrapart 7 Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based half-each on vintages 2010 and 2009, and with 10% Pinot Noir 'smuggled in,' Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc De Blancs 7 Crus E13 – named for the seven Cote des Blancs villages from which it is sourced, and in this instance disgorged in May, 2013 – displays uncommon delicacy, buoyancy, tension and nuance for an 'intro-level' cuvee, and that uncannily combined with a sense of richness and purity to its white peach and grapefruit. Almond and pistachio cream lend allure; chalk and salt along with piquancy of peach kernel and toasted pumpkin seed impart intere ...Read More »

2004 Delamotte Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

94 points Vinous: "The 2004 Blanc de Blancs is vivid and captivating from the very first taste. White orchard fruit, smoke, slate and wild flowers are some of the many notes that come alive in a dazzling Champagne that captures the essence of this great Chardonnay vintage. Veins of underlying salinity and acidity support the vivid, textured finish. The 2004 Blanc de Blancs is a superb Champagne in its price range. Readers won't want to miss it." (5/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is the best Delamotte vintage since 1996, a ripe and rich wine that brings out the chalky soil character with a stron ...Read More »

2009 Larmandier-Bernier Terre de Vertus Blanc de Blancs Champagne

94 points Vinous: "Rich and explosive to the core, the 2009 Blanc de Blancs Terre de Vertus races across the palate with tons of depth and power. 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. Disgorged January 2014." (11/2014) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright yellow. Offers an ...Read More »

2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The depths of this wine, with its layers of fruit and steeliness, are superb. Even after 12 years, it still needs to age further. Drink from 2018. Cellar Selections." (12/2014) 99 points James Suckling: "A subtle, intense champagne that shows complex character of lilac, mineral, sliced lemon, apple and white pepp ...Read More »

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Richly spiced, with ground anise, clove, ginger and cardamom, this offers a lively bead, fresh acidity and flavors of quince, honey, pastry dough and golden raisin. Offers a soft, creamy finish. Drink now through 2018." (12/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor. It is taut with a cool feel, still young in the bottle and worth aging a year." (12/2012) K&L Notes: This is one of the best Champagnes we carry regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters acres Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this is Bonvill... Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Champagne

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of citrus fruits, pear, honeysuckle and iodine, with a toasty overtone gaining strength with aeration. Dry and sharply focused, offering vibrant lime and bitter pear skin flavors and a touch of honey. Puts on weight with air and finishes with excellent clarity, power and mineral-driven persistence." (12/2013) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "A pure Côte des Blancs chardonnay, this includes 25 percent reserve wine in the blend. At first, everything about it is white, from chalk to oyster mushroom and grapefruit pith. That dry sensation yield ...Read More »

2002 Deutz "Cuvée William Deutz" Brut Champagne (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Predominantly made from Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and a little bit of Pinot Meunier, the 2002 Cuvée William Deutz Brut Millésimé is another highlight of the estate, if not the appellation. The bouquet of this Millésime is bright, very clear, fresh, aromatic and complex, whereas on the palate this is the quintessence of finesse, subtlety, purity and elegance. Sure, this is a structured wine, but it is made like a perfectly shaped antique Greek statue or a jewel. Everything here is perfectly interwoven and nothing stands out except the whole composition, ...Read More »

Charles de Cazanove Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Refined, with well-meshed acidity providing a backbone for delicate flavors of dried currant, graphite, green plum, meringue and grapefruit zest. Fresh, smoke-tinged finish. (Web-2012)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark pink. Red berry and cherry scents are lifted by a zesty citrus pith quality. Offers juicy raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of anise. Clings nicely on the finish, which shows good energy and a slightly bitter edge." (12/2012)

Drappier "Signature" Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Candied lemon, lime pith and white flowers on the fragrant nose, with deeper orange and buttered toast qualities emerging with air. Juicy flavors of pear and Meyer lemon show impressive depth and cut, with a gingery nuance adding energy. Bright, focused and mineral-driven on the clinging finish, which leaves behind notes of honeysuckle and brioche.

Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018." (6/2011) K&L Notes: This Champagne is composed of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. It has a great, open nose of sweet butter and even a touch of orange peel. On the palate it is clean and refreshing. This is a bright, easygoing Champagne for any party!

Agrapart "Terroirs" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is another fabulous wine. Here it is the combination of tension and weightlessness that is especially appealing. Sweet floral notes and a suggestion of mint meld into white orchard fruit in this effortless, totally gracious wine. All the elements meld together on the seamless, crystalline finish. The Terroirs is a blend of fruit sourced from Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, equal parts 2007 and 2008 vintages. This release was aged partly in 600-liter barrels. Dosage was 5 grams per liter.

Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L)

The Aristons vineyards are vastly different than the other blanc de blancs producers that we carry. The steeper slopes, less chalk, and more fossils in the soil of Brouillet make for a rich, creamy style Chardonnay Champagne that will appeal to just about anyone. This is one of my favorite toasting Champagnes, all of the flavors are up front, it is open-knit and fun. It is a perfect way to start a party. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

Baron-Fuente "Dolores" Brut Rosé Champagne

From a complex blend of all three Champagne grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier), this superb rosé is named in honor of Gabriel Baron's wife, Dolorès Fuentes, who hailed from Andalusia. It is fresh and warm-bodied; the color reflects the pale hue of rose petals. The youthful bouquet offers aromas of fresh red and black berries with a hint of creamy biscuit. The finish is fruity and long with a delicate richness. This rosé Champagne makes an elegant aperitif but pairs especially well with delicate fruit-laced desserts such as macaron... Read More »

Jean-Jacques Lamoureux "Trilogie" Brut Champagne

This non-vintage is based on the great 2008 harvest and composed of one-third each Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. Before bottling, two-thirds is aged in large oak for a year, and then given five years of ageing on the lees. If you love spicy, complex, layered, textural Champagne like Bollinger, Tarlant and Krug, grab a bottle before it is gone! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

2007 Michel Loriot "Les Sources du Flagot" Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

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)

2002 Thienot "Cuvée Alain Thiénot" Brut Champagne

Precious few 2002's are available these days- grab one of these when you can! This classy vintage Champagne is composed of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Like all of the Thiénot vintage wines, this bottling is entirely estate grown from the family's nearly seventy acres of vines. The Alain Thiénot has so much aroma that I thought it would be a giant Champagne from smelling the walnut bread and dark cherry fruit that was jumping from the glass. On the palate this is a very balanced wine with great clarity of flavor and a light bead. The long aging of ... Read More »

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." (7/2015) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "From the Côte des Blancs grands crus of Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger, aged in the deep cellars at Pol Roger (100 feet below street level), this opens to a fresh chardonnay clarity ...Read More »

2005 Guiborat Fils Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Guiborat Fils Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne. Produced by the Fouquet family, who have farmed parcels in Cramant since 1885. Current generation winemaker Richard Fouquet and wife Karine are now at the helm and farm 8 hectares of vineyards in Cramant, Chouilly and Mardeuil. Five hectares of their fruit is sold to Laurent Perrier for their production so Guiborat wine production is tiny. Farming is done with aggressive pruning and low yields. Vinification is done in Cramant with fermentation in stainless steel. Some small lots are aged in neutral cooperage and are laid down in chalk caves. This particular bottling is clean and linear with great depth. Citrus flavors, nectarine and minerals on the palate. An excellent Champagne to drink now or to put in the cellar for a few years.

2005 Jacquesson "Aÿ - Vauzelle Terme" Brut Champagne

92 points Vinous: "The 2005 Aÿ-Vauzelle Terme is the most polished of Jacquesson's 2005 single-vineyard Champagnes. Silky and nuanced on the palate, the Vauzelle Terme highlights the more understated side of the vintage. Hints of chalk, red cherry, plum, mint and wild flowers are laced into the highly expressive finish. Today, the Vauzelle Terme comes across as a bit weightless to the point of being a bit on the ethereal side. It will be interesting to see if the wine acquires a bit more depth in bottle. Disgorged October 2014. Dosage was 2.5 grams/liter. (AG)" (7/2015)

A warm, resonant bouquet laced with smoke, dried apricots, mint and white pepper. The style is rich, ample and resonant, with gorgeous textural depth and volume. I would prefer to drink the 2005 sooner rather than later, as the flavors are already quite forward, although the wine does seem to freshen up a touch with time in the glass.
