Krug "Grande Cuvée" 165 Ème Édition Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Spectator: "Vivid acidity drives this richly expressive Champagne, while wild cherry, blood orange sorbet, lime blossom, spun honey and spice notes play on the fine, satinlike mousse. It’s tightly-knit and racy, with the lasting finish echoing the expansive flavor range. Disgorged fall 2016. (AN)" (4/2018) K&L Notes: Based on the 2009 vintage, and the "rarest batch ever for Grande Cuvée because of caution instilled by the economic crisis," according to Jancis Robinson. Antonio Galloni echoes this sentiment saying it is a mere 10% of normal, only going to select markets, and not... Read More »

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "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 is a perfectly ...Read More »

2008 Louise Brison "Cuvée Tendresse" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

The wine opens with a deep, clear and fresh as well as intense and complex bouquet of ripe and stewed apples, cinnamon, chalk, grey bread and toast. Full-bodied yet fine, straight, very dry and fresh on the palate (the wine only partly underwent malolactic fermentation), this is a remarkable, pure and elegant Blanc de Blancs that possesses a slightly oxidative style with a very clear and well-structured finish.

The wine is its customary blend of forty percent each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and twenty percent Pinot Meunier.

2006 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne

95 points Decanter: "How does Veuve Clicquot’s cellarmaster Dominique Demarville do it? This high wire Prestige Cuvée act walks the tightrope with such confidence and ease. Unusually for the house, the blend is just 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay but like every great champagne its ‘ying and yang’ are in perfect symmetry. So we have the volume, structure and depth balanced by the cut and thrust of the acidity. On the palate are layers of cream, honey, nuts, brioche, pear, marzipan and ginger. The texture is shimmeringly silky and full. The finish alone deserves an ovation ...Read More »

A blend of roughly equal thirds of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier."

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This deep pink rosé starts off from a delicate scent of spice and roses, strawberries and the freshly turned earth of a garden. It grows more powerful and grand with air, building fresh raspberry pinot vinosity, a fragrant essence of limestone and fruit that lasts." (12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "There's lovely precision to the integration of this elegant rosé, offering a fine backbone of acidity and a light mousse. The flavors of poached pear, black cherry, fleur de sel, lemon zest and ginger are finely meshed, with a subtle vein of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2023. ...Read More »

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne

Offering up plenty of yeasty notes, stone fruits, a kiss of brioche and subtle minerality, it’s clean and lively on the palate, with bright acidity, and a classic dry finish. If you’re looking for a high-quality sparker that will deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years, you can’t go wrong here."

Offers a lightly savory finish of slivered almond and aromatic dried herb. (AN)" (12/2015) K&L Notes: This little bottle of rosé is delicious! This is the first time we have had the rosé from Bonville, an estate that grows only Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. Olivier Bonville was able to trade with Ambonnay celebrity-producer Paul Dethune for the red wine that goes into this blend of 92% Chardonnay and 8% Pinot Noir. You might wonder w... Read More »
