2000 Lanson "Noble Cuvée" Brut Champagne (Elsewhere $100)

Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Impeccably balanced and silky, with finely honed acidity shaping the expansive flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, lemon preserves and honey, revealing hints of Frangelico liqueur and smoked nut. Rich and vivid, with a lasting finish. (AN)" (11/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pale gold, greenish shimmering 2002 Rare Millesime – 30% Pinot Noir and 70% Chardonnay – offers a very intense and rich, yet fresh nose of exotic fruit aromas of pineapples, mango, kiwi and passion fruit. On the palate, this is a mouthful of luscious Champagne: powerful and ...Read More »

Charles Heidsieck "Reserve" Brut Champagne (375ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and creamy, this harmonious Champagne is expressive, with brioche, crystallized honey, black currant and toasted marshmallow flavors, accented by hints of verbena, baked peach and chopped nut. Vibrant and focused through to the lasting, saline-tinged finish. Drink now through 2022." (11/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "A wealth of trademark complexity that makes for an immediately engaging Champagne. Bright little red berries and poached peaches plus flinty reductive notes and baked caramel nut biscuits. Makes a composed and focused impression to start with citrus, strawberry a ...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 »

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. Smooth and creamy on the palate, the 2006 is all about t ...Read More »

Tarlant "Brut Tradition" Champagne

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pale golden NV Champagne Brut Tradition is a lovely, pure, dry, delicate and straightforward, serious champagne with a persistent natural taste and a highly elegant and finesse-full performance on the palate. Made from 56% Pinot Noir, 39% Pinot Meunier and 5% Chardonnay grown on different soil types of the Vallée de la Marne, this medium-bodied, full-flavored and very well-structured champagne has lovely clear apple, lemon, brioche and toffee aromas with a delicate mousseux; it has a slightly herbal and grippy taste with toffee flavors in the afterta ...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) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A lovely rosé in an almost vinous style, with mouthwatering acidity and a fine, lacy mousse carrying appealing flavors of ripe raspberry, white cherry fruit, star anise, mandarin orange peel and honeysuckle. Lightly chalky on the lasting finish. Enjoy with food. Drink now through ...Read More »

Lanson "Black Label" Brut Champagne

91 points Wine Spectator: "Firm and minerally, with a smoky undertow and well-meshed flavors of toasted walnut, pear tart, lemon meringue and fleur de sel riding the creamy mousse. Best from 2017 through 2020 (AN)" (3/2016) 90 points Vinous: "Light gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness. (JR)" (1/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Like m ...Read More »

2004 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

97 points Vinous: "The 2004 Dom Ruinart is just as brilliant and viscerally thrilling as it has always been. If anything, the 2004 has shut down considerably over the last six months. 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. (AG)" (11/2014) 95 points James Suckling: "This is deep and more layered than many with an already complex and sweet-smelling nutty and toasty edge; it reall ...Read More »

Bollinger "Special Cuvee" Brut Champagne (375ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic, with accents of bread dough, smoked almond and crème de cassis, this creamy Champagne is lightly chalky in texture and framed by firm acidity, with flavors of glazed apricot, orange blossom and rich hints of clover honey and coffee liqueur. Drink now through 2022." (11/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The classic Bollinger nonvintage is, as always, rich and firmly structured. With the roundness that comes from aging the wines in wood before blending, it has a ripe, smooth edge. Underneath, the texture is solid, with hints of apple and pear and mature acidity." (12/2012) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two ...Read More »
