2005 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2005 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "Impressive concentration and power here. This is really assertive with ripe yellow orchard fruits and citrus within a core encased in a layer of more savory, toasty notes on both the nose and palate. There's that gentle hint of aldehyde that is the traditional stamp of the house plus savory woody notes, white mushrooms and some chalk and spices, too. The palate has a fleshy opening, filling out with peach and hazelnut flavors before a smooth ride to the finish. Approachable and complex." (10/2016) 94 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* A powerful, structured and graceful 20 ...Read More »

2005 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Still very young, this holds great potential. Rich, full-bodied and densely structured, it is a wine first, sparkling second. Ripe apple and peach flavors partner with a strongly mineral texture. It needs to age more in bottle, so drink from 2016. (RV)" (12/2014) 94 points John Gilman: "The wine delivers superb refinement in its complex bouquet of apple, pain grillé, pear, a touch of hazelnut, complex soil tones and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with outstanding depth at the core, bright acids, very e ...Read More »

Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne (375ml)

96 points James Suckling: "A very complex nose here with ripe, deep lemon and grapefruit aromas on offer plus some restrained chalky elements, biscuit, some roasting herbs, hints of pepper, then a little tobacco too. Very complex and full of fresh characters. The palate has a wealth of different fruit flavors like lemon, peach, nectarine, and plums. The finesse in terms of structure, detail and precision is staggering; sherbet-like elegance with immense concentration and power. A great Grande Cuvée. Incredibly satisfying. Based on 2006. Krug ID 14024." (7/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Krug’s NV Brut Grande ...Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Cepages d'Antan" Brut Champagne

This super rare bottling is made with some of the nearly extinct, native varietals of Champagne. It is composed of 40% Meslier, 40% Arbanne and 20% Pinot Blanc. I think it is the best of the excellent Ariston portfolio. The nose has only hints of exoticism; the overall impression is of rich cream and toast, but underneath is a hint of pine and exotic white fruit from the old varieties. On the palate the Champagne makes for a double take: it is very rich and textural, but finishes with a laser beam of chalky acidity that just goes on and on. It is fantast... Read More »

2009 Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

95 points Wine & Spirits: "From Roederer’s grand cru vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Cramant, this is a chardonnay that’s both ample in its flavor and quiet in its delivery. Broadened by long aging on the lees, almost tropical in its ripeness, this wine’s firm underlying acidity presents all the flavor with clarity, rising toward mineral notes in the finish. One taster suggested that it is rich enough to serve with foie gras on toast with plum jam." (12/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Blanc de Blancs Vintage is mainly from Avize (80%), but chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon is aiming fo ...Read More »

2008 Veuve Clicquot "Gold Label Reserve" Brut Champagne

93 points James Suckling: "Attractive creamy pastry notes and pithy lemon citrus fruits on offer here. There's also a gently nutty edge of autolysis, all locked in nice and fresh here. The palate's bright, crisp and has attractive fresh lemon and peach-fruit flavours. It's a really tidy and more chiselled vintage for this wine." (8/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very elegant, this is chiseled by racy acidity that's swathed in the refined, creamy mousse and flavors of crème de cassis, preserved lemon, biscuit and dried apricot. Long and lacy on the smoke-tinged, minerally finish. (AN, Web-2016)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Assembling 35% ...Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

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 »

2008 Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne

About the producer: "The anchor, the Christian symbol for hope and rigour, was chosen in 1798 by Philippe Clicquot, the founder of the House, as the cork brand, the only distinguishing mark in the era before labels. As a symbol of hope, the anchor was a perfect emblem for a young entrepreneur with faith in the prosperity of his newly founded business. Madame Clicquot continued to use the same cork brand when she took over the running of the House in 1805. In keeping the anchor emblem throughout the centuries, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin remains faithful to ... Read More »

2009 Louis Roederer Brut Nature Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "The clarity of chalk and white almond is striking. Gentle perfume with some light cherry fruits, peach, grapefruit and lemon citrus. The palate has a piercing burst of lemon and grapefruit flavor on the front and builds into gently biscuity and more savory flavors through the middle. Holds on to bright zesty acidity into the finish. Smooth, resolved and balanced. Really detailed." (10/2016)

2006 Louis Roederer Brut Nature Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "A delicious collaboration with France's guru designer of cool, this goes against the grain of Louis Roederer and has no dosage, making it very dry. It's dense and powerful with layers of fruit. It’s also full and almost spicy with a long and powerful finish. Soft texture too. If you closed your eyes, it tastes like a red. Starck actually was involved with the blend; he says it's so good you almost don't need the bottle. But the bottle makes it. A blend of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. No malo."

2006 Pol Roger Vintage Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* It is the balance that stars with this wine. The fruit, acidity and mineral texture are held together in maturing harmony. Still young, the wine is still in the fruity spectrum and yet is very ready to drink now. The acidity and the link between the soft dosage and freshness are all in place. Drink now and until 2026. (RV)" (12/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Brut "Sous Bois" Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fermented in wood, this mature and rich Champagne is sophisticated and stylish. It has a rich, full-bodied character with hints of spice as well as dry, citrus fruits. It has a steely core, showing a taut texture as well as some maturity. Ready to drink, it will also age in bottle. (RV)" (12/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of light butter, dough, cooked apples and apple purée. Full-bodied and very rich with plenty of fruit, intense nut, and light toasted oak. Very structured. This is decanted in cuve and then racked into bottles and fermented in old oak barrels for ...Read More »

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "Beautifully composed reduction across lemon citrus, white peach, cherries and deeper, more savory notes of spice and grilled nuts; fresh and complex at once. 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. Drink now." (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 delicio ...Read More »

2008 Drappier "Grande Sendrée" Brut Champagne

From a very fine vintage, it reveals intense flavors, layers of ripe apple and a taut texture that promises further aging. The wine can be drunk now, but it will be so much better from 2018. (RV)" (12/2016) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Very minerally on the nose, with brine and smoke accents leading to flavors of cassis, mandarin orange peel and dried white cherry on the buoyant, creamy mousse.

2008 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne

Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth-generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750 and their cellars were built in 1822. The delectable Dilection is based on the incredible 2008 vintage with 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. Only French oak is used and the vineyard where the grapes are sourced was planted in 1902. It is rich, but classically dry with dark cherry and strawberry fruit on the finish, which lingers. (Scott Beckerley, K&L Staff Member... Read More »

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

Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes. (JR)" (1/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "With its extra touch of richness and a feeling of maturity, this remains a benchmark nonvintage Champagne. It has flavors of ripe white fruits, balancing acidity with just a touch of final softness. (RV)" (12/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pol Roger’s NV B ...Read More »

2002 Thienot "Cuvée Alain Thiénot" Brut Champagne

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and ripe, this wine shows a great balance between fresh, fragrant fruit and toasty hints of maturity. There's a soft feel on the palate, but a tangy, vibrant texture adds complexity to this very fine wine. (RV)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: Precious few 2002's are available these days- grab one of these when you can! This classy vintage Champagne is composed of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Like all of the Thiénot vintage wines, this bottling is entirely estate grown from the family's nearly seventy acres of vines. The Alain Thiénot has so much aroma that I thought... Read More »

Gosset Blanc des Blancs Brut Champagne

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Blanc de Blancs are generally regarded as the lighter, more elegant members of the Champagne family, and, if this expressive and involving effort from Gosset hits the mark for refinement, it goes well beyond the norm in terms of sheer richness and depth. It is as complex as Blanc de Blancs is wont to get and sports layer upon layer of brioche, biscuits and cream, but for all of its autolyzed extras it is still spry and vital with life to spare. It is an altogether compelling Champagne best sipped slowly and on its own, but we would not refuse a few oyste ...Read More »

2007 Michel Arnould "Cuvee B50" Brut Champagne

We have been advocates for small, estate-grown Champagne for two decades here at K&L, and I am a huge believer that wine produced on a human scale tastes better. When the owner of the property works the vines, makes the wines and drives the forklift, it takes the Champagne to another level of quality. Patrick Arnould is one of the best examples of this type of vigneron. His house, Champagne Michel Arnould, is our top Direct Import producer of dry, powerful Pinot-based Champagnes. Patrick is the fifth generation of Champagne Michel Arnould. They own 27 a... Read More »

2008 Moët & Chandon "Grand Vintage" Brut Rosé Champagne

There is a translucence to the 2008 that is impossible to miss. Sweet rose petal, autumn leaves, tobacco, mint and licorice are woven together in an intricate fabric of aromas and textures.

2006 Michel Arnould "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

That's right- Patrick Arnould ages his vintage magnums four extra years on the lees over the 750's, and then charges you NOTHING for the extra time. Like many Champagne producers, he passionately believes this is the format to drink Champagne out of! Only 48 of these magnums were imported to the US. This wine is a blend of very old vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rose. This is wine exclusively ... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Brut Prestige" Champagne (1.5L)

Champagne always tastes better out of magnum. 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 trip, and we drank two just to make sure! It has fantastic... Read More »
