Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

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 creamy, with pretty violet and smoke notes winding through the biscuit and lemon meringue flavors. This is subtle, featuring well-integrated acidity and a supple structure overall. Easy to like." (12/2010) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Bright citrus and green apple aromas, with deeper nuances of honey and sweet butter in the background. Pliant and gently toasty, ...Read More »

Baron Fuente "Grande Réserve" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and mouthwatering, this shows fine balance and texture, supporting a subtle range of peach, blanched almond, biscuit, mineral and light spice. Drink now through 2020." (12/2012) K&L Notes: Baron Fuente is a negociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "sur pied," meaning that they pick the grapes. This is an important distinction since many negociants buy "sur lattes" meaning in bottle! This delicious Champagne is composed of 10% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 60% Meunier and had been aged three years on the lees. It is fermente... Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

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. Olivi... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Brut Prestige" Champagne (1.5L)

Champagne always tastes better out of magnum. This is pure vintage 2002, but it is not labeled as such. Paul-Vincent Ariston says that his 25-year-old vines reflect the vintage, but the Prestige, made from vines averaging 60 years, reflect his terroir. He feels that putting a vintage date on this wine would be an insult to his best vineyard plots. This vineyard was destroyed by hail in 2002, so this is the last we'll ever see of the old vines. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Meunier. This was one of the best bottles from my 2010 ... Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now." (7/2015)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 Antonio Galloni: "Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, w ...Read More »

2005 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Magnum (1.5L)

We began importing the Champagnes of Launois about 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 neigbors, picking a week to 10 days later and using only massal-selected plants rather than the more common clones. All of the Champa...

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 »

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)

2008 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne 1.5L

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is the first vintage released from the new cellar Roederer built in 2007, dedicated to the production of rosé. It comes from the firm’s estate vineyard in Cumières. With the delicate color of a classic saignée Champagne, this has the powerful expression of a grand cru wine, performing beyond its premier cru status. The fragrant red fruit has rich succulence and a chalky undertow, along with a fierce acidity that needs time to temper in the bottle. Decant it if you open this now, to serve with mousse truffée."

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne (1.5L)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(roughly 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier; Lot 14009913): Light gold. Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time."

Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and finely knit, this vibrant Champagne is framed by racy acidity that enlivens the flavors of ripe boysenberry, lemon zest, brioche and chopped hazelnut. Spice and chalk notes linger on the finish." (10/2015)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Fresh pear and yellow apple on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. In a chewy, expansive style, but with good clarity and thrust. The pear note repeats on the persistent finish, which leaves notes of toasty lees, iodine and honeysuckle behind." (12/2013)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh and crisp, this is bright with acidity as well as warmer fruitiness. It ...Read More »

Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (1.5L) Back In Stock!
Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

Champagne always tastes better from magnum! This all-estate grown Champagne is 100% Meunier from the village of Festigny. Unlike many "Reserve" designation Champagnes, this lives up to its name with half of the wine coming from old reserves. It is quite round, with a wonderful pie crust and spice nose, with some hints of exotic fruit in the flavor. This is medium to full bodied Champagne and makes great drinking on its own as well as being fantastic with pates of all sorts. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

97 points Wine Spectator: "This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028." (9/2013)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 splurg ...Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Scents of cedar, forest mushrooms and red fruit rise out of this deep copper pink rosé. It’s bright and spicy, a lovely pinot noir essence over limestone minerality. Supple and finely made." (12/2011)90 points Wine Spectator: "The impression here is elegant overall, but there's a firm backbone of acidity that's finely meshed with the delicate range of flavors, including white raspberry, spiced plum, biscuit, pink grapefruit zest and a base note of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2017." (12/2012) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright orange. Fresh redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complemented by not ...Read More »

Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is, not surprisingly, actually quite similar to the Pure but with just a bit more complexity and a hair more toastiness. This is also intensely effervescent with a mouth feel that is exceptionally vibrant before culminating in clean, cool, persistent and impressively refreshing finish. This is a pleasure to drink and it could be enjoyed now or held for additional development though I like the energy if offers now. A fine value." (9/2012)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Livel ...Read More »

2004 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Magnum 1.5L

Stylish and elegant, it offers just the right amount of acidity to balance the ripe white and citrus fruits." (12/2014)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light yellow-gold. Bright, mineral-accented scents of fresh orange, Anjou pear and jasmine, with a toasty leesy nuance coming up slowly. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the palate, offering juicy tangerine and pear flavors and hints of anise, redcurrant and honeysuckle. Clings with strong tenacity on the penetrating finish, leaving a sexy floral note behind." (12/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "R ...Read More »

Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals.

2008 Louise Brison "Cuvée Germain Brulez" Brut 1.5L

Mr. Brulez sells two-thirds of his grapes, and keeps the best third to make only vintage Champagne. He is the chairman of the Dijon University Alumni Association, and looks more to Burgundy than to Reims for the inspiration for his wines. There is not much more festive than a magnum of Vintage Champagne. The fact that this is meticulously crafted makes it a particularly fun addition on your holiday gatherings!

1999 Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category. (PR)" (12/2005)97 points James Suckling: "From the family collection, disgorged te ...Read More »

Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne (1.5L)

This will best please those who want a fuller style Champagne that is basically ready to drink now even though it could easily be enjoyably held for a few years. Good quality here." (10/2007) K&L Notes: This is a real deal Champagne from Courteron, a village in the Aube department of Champagne, closer to Chablis than the city o... Read More »

Spicy and pliant on the palate, offering ripe raspberry and tangerine flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Mineral and lees notes build slowly on the clinging, spicy finish, which leaves bitter berry skin and floral nuances behind."

These magnums are only available on a special order basis- and will be disgorged fresh for you in Reims before being shipped to K&L. The 1988 Lanson Vintage Collection Brut Champagne is a spectacular magnum, from one of my very favorite vintages for drinking right now. This is one of the last "classic" Champagne vintages with a nice, long, even growing season. This wine only showed the slightest tinge of gold in its straw color after 25 years. The nose is developing the white truffle aromas that only time can bring, framed by the savory Pinot Noir charac... Read More »

1990 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Rosé Champagne Magnum 1.5L

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Copper-orange color, deeper at its core. Fascinating nose reminded me of a great 40-year-old red Burgundy : truffle, smoke, minerals, earth and a hint of celery seed. Then high-toned, quite ripe and uncompromisingly dry, with iron-like earth, mushroom and tobacco flavors suffused by a smoky, meaty character. Extremely idiosyncratic rose-and I love it! Finishes long and harmonious; shows Pedro Ximenez-like notes of toffee, raisin and molasses on the end, but sound acids give lift and verve to the aftertaste.
