Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the heartland of Chardonnay in Champagne comes this rich, creamy, apple-flavored wine. It has lively acidity, balanced with some sweetness from the dosage. It has weight and a crisp aftertaste." (12/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly creamy, with pretty violet and smoke notes winding through the biscuit and lemon meringue flavors. This is subtle, featuring well-integrated acidity and a supple structure overall. Easy to like." (12/2010) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Bright citrus and green apple aromas, with deeper nuances of honey and sweet butter in the background. Pliant and gently toasty ...Read More »

Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L) Top Pick!
Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

Wine Spectator: "Notes Harvey Steinman, "...It had what I like to call a winey quality. The flavor profile was more like the fruit-mineral-spice balance of a complex, mouthwatering still Chardonnay wine than the yeasty-citrusy-toasty notes of many blanc de blancs Champagnes. The texture was on the plush side, but had enough acid backbone to be refreshing. 91 points, non-blind." (Web-2010)" K&L Notes: This spectacular Champagne is one of the most sought after in France, and Launois' cult status made it very difficult for us to make a purchase. We lucked out, and now we buy it directly... Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

Rated Extraordinary by the Underground Wine Journal, which writes: "This is a great rosé. Light pink in color it has an absolutely gorgeous perfume with raspberry and cherry fruit accented by floral citrus notes and a faint hint of spice. There is a creamy texture with a nice crispness underneath and the fruit is complex with raspberry, cherry, and citrus offset by a kiss of vanilla. Irresistible now this is really terrific." K&L's notes: This is the first time we have had the Rosé from Bonville, an estate that grows only Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. Olivi... Read More »

Pierre Paillard Grand Cru Brut Champagne (1.5L)

Offers a lightly chalky finish. Disgorged January 2012. Drink now through 2020." (6/2013)91 points Antonio Galloni: "Light gold, with a faint onion skin cast. Spicy orange zest and honeydew on the fragrant, mineral-accented nose. Dry and tightly focused, offering lively Meyer lemon and melon flavors and a deeper suggestion of nectarine.

Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs is structured and intensely minerally, but with a rich, full, creamy palate. It is finely balanced—elegant yet fruity—with a bright, crisp aftertaste. Drink now." (12/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "Beautifully balanced and refined in texture, this displays exotic ground spice and floral accents to the flavors of poached white peach, Meyer lemon and candied ginger, with hints of pastry and honey. Offers a lasting, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2023." (11/2013)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow.

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne (1.5L)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(roughly 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier; Lot 14009913): Light gold. Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time."

2008 Franck Bonville "Millesime" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

Don't let the low price fool you, this might be the best vintage Champagne in the building right now! Whether your friends will recognize the name or not, this is as impressive a bottle of Champagne as you're likely to procure! Another classic vintage wine from Bonville, who is our most "vertical worthy" producer that we carry. Composed entirely from Grand Cru, estate-grown Chardonnay, this vintage comes almost exclusively from the village of Avize. This 2008 is similar in style to the 1996, with big ripeness and extraordinary acidity. I have enjoyed man... Read More »

Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne (1.5L)

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 warming climate." (12/2013)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a finely balanced non-vintage Brut. It has great swathes of yellow fruit and crisp lime flavor that lend a stylish freshness. Already showing some touches of toast and bottle age, this is a ready-to-drink wine." (12/2013)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(40% pinot meunier, 30% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay; L200352): Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, ...Read More »

Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (previously Cuvee Reserve) (1.5L)

Champagne always tastes better from magnum! This all-estate grown Champagne is 100% Meunier from the village of Festigny. Unlike many "Reserve" designation Champagnes, this lives up to its name with half of the wine coming from old reserves. It is quite round, with a wonderful pie crust and spice nose, with some hints of exotic fruit in the flavor. This is medium to full bodied Champagne and makes great drinking on its own as well as being fantastic with pates of all sorts. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Richly spiced, with ground anise, clove, ginger and cardamom, this offers a lively bead, fresh acidity and flavors of quince, honey, pastry dough and golden raisin. Offers a soft, creamy finish. Drink now through 2018." (12/2012)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor. It is taut with a cool feel, still young in the bottle and worth aging a year." (12/2012) K&L Notes: This is one of the best Champagnes we carry regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters acres Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this is Bonvill... Read More »

2005 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Magnum (1.5L)

We began importing the Champagnes of Launois about a decade ago, though we haven't been able to promote them properly because our allocations were very tight. Fortunately for us, Bernard Launois has decided to export more! Champagne Launois' wines are highly sought after, so much so, in fact, that we've sold their Champagne to Champenois who can't get it at home! Bernard Launois does things differently than the rest of his neigbors, picking a week to 10 days later and using only massal-selected plants rather than the more common clones. All of the Champa...

This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now." (12/2013)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(roughly 50% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier; L344234): Light orange.

Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Laurent-Perrier’s dry style is reflected in this crisp, elegant and fine Champagne. The character is mineral, taut, with a great burst of citrus and white fruit acidity. The ensemble creates a delicious food-friendly wine." (12/2011)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Fresh pear and yellow apple on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. In a chewy, expansive style, but with good clarity and thrust. The pear note repeats on the persistent finish, which leaves notes of toasty lees, iodine and honeysuckle behind."

Very layered and juicy. This was a very hot year for Champagne and a year for pinot noir. But this is so fresh and complex." (9/2014)95 points Wine Spectator: "Very elegant, ethereal in texture and well-knit, offering flavors of poached pear, black licorice, lemon pâte de fruit, pastry and ground ginger.

Supple and finely made." (12/2011)90 points Wine Spectator: "The impression here is elegant overall, but there's a firm backbone of acidity that's finely meshed with the delicate range of flavors, including white raspberry, spiced plum, biscuit, pink grapefruit zest and a base note of smoky minerality.

Michel Arnould Verzenay Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

The Arnoulds own 27 acres in the village of Verzenay, a quite sizable holding in this high rent area. If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, you may very much enjoy the bold Champagne of Michel Arnould. The Brut Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir Grand Cru, acquired by assembling different vintages and red Coteaux Champenoises coming from old vines. This lovely Rosé Champagne offers hints of raspberry, strawberry and redcurrant. Very refined on the palate where more berries and finally grenadine notes emerge.

Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028." (9/2013)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Krug’s NV Brut Grande Cuvee ID 112001 -- disgorged already over the winter of 2011-2012 but then further aged before release -- reinforces the belief that, thankfully, even wine lovers of modest means who occasionally splurg ...Read More »

Penetrating and dry on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering intense orchard fruit and buttered toast flavors with a touch of bitter cherry pit.

Bruno Michel Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

What an opportunity! One of Bruno Michel's other importers in Europe passed on this all-2006 (although not marked as a vintage) special lot of rosé in magnum. This all-Meunier, all skin contact rosé Champagne offers the same sort of savory flavor profile as the much loved "les Roses" but with more richness and a greater array of spicy complexity, at a better deal than the 750ml bottle. The balance of this wine is near perfect, with the wildness of the 750ml checked by bread-like richness. This is great rosé Champagne! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

Fleury Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "A superfine mousse heralds this elegant, vibrant rosé. Vanilla accents, with berry and spice flavors. Glides to a firm finish. Terrific balance and integration. Drink now." (12/2006) 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 the style of wine owes as much to Burgundy as the stylish bottle does to the grand marques of Champagne. The vineyards, which are all owned by Fleury, are farmed 100% biodynamically, the strictest form of orga... Read More »

It does have some of the typical weight of Pol Roger Champagnes, but with an edge. Let it breathe in the glass for a few moments, which will bring out some extra richness."

These magnums are only available on a special order basis- and will be disgorged fresh for you in Reims before being shipped to K&L.

2002 Launois "Special Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)
Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2002 Launois "Special Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L). Powerful Blanc de Blancs that gets its richness from old vines and a delayed harvest. It might seem strange that the top bottling is offered younger than the regular vintage, but Mr. Bernard Launois is adamant that extensive sur-lie ageing is reductive and shortens the ultimate life span of the wine. He goes against almost every other producer in Champagne with this iconoclastic opinion, but for anyone who has tasted perfectly stored, great Champagne that has aged on cork, we know it can work! Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the Grand Cru of Oger called the Chenys and one in Mesnil called the Derriere Maison, this is one of the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer.
