Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve Champagne (Previously $30.00)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Chalky in texture, this fresh, balanced version features a hint of smoky minerality underscoring ripe pear, candied black currant and lemon meringue pie flavors. Drink now through 2018. (AN)" (10/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "If never as far reaching and complex as those bottlings allowed extra time on the years, Feuilllatte's basic Brut is a complete and carefully crafted Champagne of fine balance and brightness. Its lightly yeasty elements are nicely matched by a trim bit of citrusy fruit, and both its energetic mousse and its keen sense of focus are sustained to the end. And, ...Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This remains quite fresh with its cool nose of apple, citrus and exuberant yeast elements that continue onto the crisp, intense and energetic flavors that terminate in a saline-inflected, wonderfully complex and beautifully well-balanced finale. In contrast to some '90s today, this is still in terrific shape and should continue to hold if not improve for years to come. In a word, lovely."

Moët & Chandon "Impérial" Brut Champagne (187ml)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "This blend is mostly Pinot Noir and Meunier, including 10 percent red wine for color. Chardonnay accounts for 10 to 20 percent, including a portion of reserve wines that may be providing the oceanic, oyster-shell notes that bring to mind Champagne’s Kimmeridgean limestone. This is broad and loose up front, with fruity scents of orange and pomegranate. Then the wine keeps buzzing with brisk acidity, tightening up and extending the flavors with energy.

Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Laurent-Perrier NV Brut is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier, and is based on 2009 plus 15-30% reserve wines from two or three vintages. 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 »

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 »

The palate's assertively flavored, yet runs on a smooth and fine textural thread. Acidity is paramount, redder fruits hold court here. Great balance and depth." (7/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "To judge by the cork, this bottling has some age, giving it a toasty as well as fruity character that adds complexity to this baked-apple and citrus-flavored wine. It also means that it needs no further aging and is delicious to drink ...Read More »

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

92 points James Suckling: "A complex, reliable Champagne that would show well in all occasions thanks to its freshness and class. 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.

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. And its latter palate grip is exactly what one should expect from the genre. While service with lig ...Read More »

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. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today.

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 »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and vinous in style, with a soft and creamy mousse and finely meshed flavors of steeped raspberry, ground anise, graphite and smoke. Offers a lightly savory finish of slivered almond and aromatic dried herb. Drink now through 2020. (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 ... Read More »

Moet & Chandon "Imperial" Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Wine & Spirits: "This blend is mostly Pinot Noir and Meunier, including 10 percent red wine for color. Chardonnay accounts for 10 to 20 percent, including a portion of reserve wines that may be providing the oceanic, oyster-shell notes that bring to mind Champagne’s Kimmeridgean limestone. This is broad and loose up front, with fruity scents of orange and pomegranate. Then the wine keeps buzzing with brisk acidity, tightening up and extending the flavors with energy. An impressive release of Impérial." (12/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of ripe peach, passion fruit and juicy acidity are carr ...Read More »

Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignee Champagne Top Pick!
Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignee Champagne

90 points Vinous: "(all Pinot Noir; 10 g/l dosage; L4880 14 073): Bright orange-pink. Sexy floral lift to the aromas of red berries, blood orange and buttered toast. 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. (JR)" (1/2015) K&L Notes: The Fleury rosé is made entirely of Pinot Noir from Courteron, in the southern part of Champagne. Locals proudly say that their town is closer to Chablis than Reims, and...

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 »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne

92 points James Suckling: "A trademark nose with plenty of savory elements in the wood; nutty pinot noir realm, attractive red-fruited freshness, plus some grilled nuts too. The palate has a bold heart of gently spicy, peppery red fruit flavor delivered confidently right throughout." (7/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A balanced rosé framed by mouthwatering acidity, with a lively bead and hints of smoke and saline accenting the dried strawberry, lemon meringue pie and kumquat notes. Zesty finish. (AN, Web-2015)" 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Based on the same blend as Yellow Label with 12 percent Pinot Noir added, this is round, creamy and ...Read More »

Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

91 points Vinous: "(100% Pinot Noir; 9 g/l dosage; disgorged on November 7, 2013): Bright yellow. Mineral-accented redcurrant and blood orange scents are complicated by smoky minerals and dried rose. Chewy and tightly focused, offering bitter citrus pith and red berry flavors and a touch of toasted brioche. Shows very good clarity and lift on the taut, energetic finish, leaving smoky mineral and floral notes behind. (JR)" (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Blanc de Noirs Brut is based on the 2010 harvest and includes 25% of reserve wines. It was disgorged in October 2015 with seven grams of do ...Read More »

Bollinger Brut Rosé Champagne

93 points James Suckling: "This is a rosé of complexity and sophistication. It is essentially a finessed version of Special Cuvée and has all the brightness and nicely caught complexity of that Champagne with a layer of redder fruit aromas as well as a thread of raspberry and cherry on the palate; some blueberry too. Very long, even and thrilling on the finish." (7/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Lacy in texture, with bright, well-knit acidity and a streak of chalky minerality underscoring the subtle flavors of strawberry, white peach, fresh ginger and crystallized honey. A hint of salted almond lingers on t ...Read More »
