2008 Baron Fuente "Grand Millesime" Brut Champagne

Baron Fuente is a négociant 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 négociants buy "sur lattes," meaning in bottle! The Grand Millésimé is a blend of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir that spent more than seven years on the lees.

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.

Bollinger "Special Cuvee" 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 »

Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors. Lean, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a dry and silky textured, vivacious, and perfectly fresh and balanced aperitif Champagne. It does not have the opinion-dividing thrill and tension of the Ultra Brut, but will probably find more friends. (SR)" (3/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine’s fres ...Read More »

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.

Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004.

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. Our current selection has a 2012 base wine.

Drawing on all three grapes (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), this has a complex grilled-nut and autolysis character overlayed across red berries and citrus fruits. Definitely a lot of reserve wine character here. The palate delivers lemons, grapefruit, peaches and mangoes in a refreshingly pure, fleshy style.

Michel Arnould "Reserve" Brut Verzenay Champagne

If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, I think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor. This is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, entirely from estate vineyards in the Grand Cru of Verzenay.

A 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Marc estate in Fleury-la-Riviere in the heart of the Marne valley. This is aged for five years and treated with a low dosage to preserve its crisp character. The Grand Cuvée has the texture and complexity of a big house tête de cuvée and, surprisingly, also the restraint.

Deutz "Brut Classic" Champagne

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "A full complement of toasty, autolyzed yeast moves to center stage here, yet this creamy, finely bubbled offering comes with a quiet undercurrent of mildly apple-like fruit as well. The result is a fairly friendly, moderately rich, easy-to-taste Brut that, while properly dry, is not in the least austere, and, when measured against its many non-vintaged Champenoise cousins, it proves to be a bit more complete than most. It is a solid, well-conceived Brut that will not disappoint." (12/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "An upbeat style in terms of aromas with citrus and stone fruits dom ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne (375ml)

92 points James Suckling: "This has impressive ripe stone fruits on the nose with peaches, mangoes, melon and cherries. Really upbeat and attractive purity. The palate follows the same thread of fruit characters with a clever balance of flesh and crunch, a bright finish and good balance. Drink now. A blend of roughly equal thirds of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier." (10/2016) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness. It’s a lovely prediction of what Champagne might become in a w ...Read More »

Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec Champagne

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Green-gold. Delicate spices, honeyed apple and orange on the nose. Fine and brisk for a demi-sec, with clean, spice-tinged apple and pear flavors and medium weight. This is carrying 45 grams per liter of residual sugar but I'd never have guessed it. Finishes with good lift and length. Try this with fresh goat cheeses. (JR)" (11/2006) Wine Spectator: "Smoky, with toasted coconut and brioche notes underscoring the quince paste and candied ginger flavors. Zesty acidity keeps this lively and balanced throughout and creates a lip-smacking sensation on the finish. (AN, Web-2016)" ...Read More »

2007 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2007 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

97 points Vinous: "Long-time Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon has produced yet another in a string of superb Champagnes with the 2007 Cristal. Rich, powerful and enveloping, the 2007 takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. The aromatics alone are captivating, but then the wine opens on the palate, revealing layer after layer of flavor to match a multi-dimensional, kaleidoscopic personality that will leave Champagne lovers weak at the knees. The 2007 is 58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir, which is to say a bit more Chardonnay-leaning than is the norm. The 2007 i ...Read More »

Taittinger "La Française" Brut Champagne

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deliciously delicate Taittinger NV Brut La Francaise L2383PK01300 is strikingly buoyant and dominated by subtle scents of yeast-tinged flowers and foliage – honeysuckle and mint immediately come to mind – that allude to its roughly one-quarter Meunier component, with a luscious matrix of lime-drenched honeydew melon and apple well-supported by discreet residual sugar leading to a sustained and refreshing finish. Hints of toasted almond and vanilla-tinged cookie dough lend a faintly confectionary cast that manages to harmonize with the dominant fruiti ...Read More »

Egrot (formerly Elisabeth Goutorbe) Brut Champagne

This Champagne used to be called Elisabeth Goutorbe Cuvée Éclatante. 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. It is a 100% estate-grown direct-import gem. It is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir from the grand cru of Ay and 20% Chardonnay from the 1er cru of Louvois. It is dosed very lightly at only 8 grams per liter. The Pinot comes through on the nose with very pretty candied cherry interlaced with fresh baked bread. On the palate it has a lot of body, firm,... Read More »
