Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne (375ml)

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.

Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Perhaps the most exciting value in the store right now! This wine is based on the 2011 harvest, which was a difficult one for Olivier Bonville. He took extreme measures to ensure the quality of his entry level wine, and made the best non-vintage that he has ever released. His entire 2011 high end production was declassified into this wine; he will make no Belles Voyes, Vintage or Prestige and has instead put all of his top class, mid-slope, old vine production into the regular bottling and the base for the rosé. It is composed of entirely estate grown, g... Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

Don't let the low price fool you; this is a great bottle of Champagne. The Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" is made of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Meunier. A balanced cuvée in every way, this Champagne is clean and powerful at once. It has a natural toasty quality from spending five full years on the lees, and plenty of refreshing zip from the far northern location of the vineyards. No bottle in our inventory transports me to Champagne like this one. It is as true to the terroir and as pure as anything I could wish for! You don't have to settl... Read More »

Marguet Pere et Fils "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Champagne

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Half-each Chardonnay and Pinot, Marguet’s NV Brut Reserve Disg. 10/2012 is utterly fascinating in its pungent and savory evocations of bruised apple skin and lemon rind; oyster liquor and kelp, toasted nuts and blond tobacco; sourdough yeasts and singed buckwheat batter. There are white peach and apple to lend a juicy, fruity matrix to the mix on a palate at once creamy and vivacious. This finishes with subtle tartness, persistent pungency, pleasantly sour invigoration, and mouthwatering salinity. It will no doubt be too outrageously out of the mainstrea ...Read More »

Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne

Our best deal in pink bubbles! Fans of Billecart-Salmon take note: this is an elegant, dry style that is made entirely from estate grown fruit in Brouillet. This Champagne is a blend of half and half Pinot Noir and Meunier. The color comes from 12% Meunier that is vinified red, from an old-vine plot that gets quite ripe. It is a very pretty tarnished pink color and has a lazy bead from over five years of aging on the lees. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid palate, but still finishes snappy and dry.

It is composed of 100% Pinot Noir with a 2011 base wine blended with 2009 and 2010 vintage, 50% of which is reserve stocks. This is a clean style of Pinot Noir with fine acidity and a small bead.

Launois "Quartz" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Launois "Quartz" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

The Quartz all comes from the famous Chettilons parcel and has four atmospheres (59psi) of pressure instead of the normal six (88psi). While I would be hard pressed to tell by looking at or tasting this Champagne that it has lighter carbonation, it tastes very different from the Reserve due to the wonderful vineyard site. Since less yeast and sugar were added to the wine during bottling, it has less leesy flavor, and because there is less dissolved carbon dioxide in the wine the flavors of the grapes underneath shine more. Look for flavors of apple and b... Read More »

Their methods are as Burgundian as their location. They are biodynamic, too, the strictest form of organic viticulture. The assemblage of several Pinot Noir vines from diff... Read More »

2008 Ariston Aspasie Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Ariston Aspasie Brut Champagne

This Champagne is made from vineyards 25-30 years old and is a blend of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. This wine has a great banana nut bread nose followed by a seamless texture and finished with the spectacular acidity of this near-perfect Champagne harvest. Try this now and then lay some of this down for the future… I still have some 1996 left, and they are showing great, as was the 1983 I had last year with the Aristons!

Thienot Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Thienot Brut Champagne

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Lemon curd, quince, white flowers, honey and vanilla on the fragrant nose. Taut, refreshingly bitter citrus pith and toasty lees flavors give way to richer melon and peach with air, with honeysuckle and ginger notes adding complexity. A pungent, waxy note carries through the smoky expansive finish." (12/2012) Wine & Spirits: "There’s precision to the minerality of this wine, a serious streak of limestone under bright, candied fruit. It’s a full, generous style, ready for poached prawns." (12/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "Alain Thiénot’s non vintage is ripe, rich and full-bodied—a de ...Read More »

1999 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of minerals, pear pie, nuts with bread dough and apple character. Full-bodied, lively and wonderful with bright fruit and a clean finish. 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. 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay. 10% of the pinot is fermented in barrel. Drink now." (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. Shows fine balance and integration, with ...Read More »

Boulard-Bauquaire "Trepail" Vieilles Vignes Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Boulard-Bauquaire "Trepail" Vieilles Vignes Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

This Champagne comes from one plot of 70 year old Chardonnay vines in the Montagne of Reims village of Trepail. It is aged for three years on the lees and composed of half 2011 and half 2010. The Champagne has a chalky, creamy, bready nose and a concentrated impression on the palate. As one would expect from such ancient vines, it delivers the goods on the finish with plenty of chalk as well as a bit of honey and white fruit. This makes a perfect aperitif, but will also pair well with seafood such as seared scallops ore even raw oysters. -Gary Westby

It has a great, open nose of sweet butter and even a touch of orange peel. On the palate it is clean and refreshing. This is a bright, easygoing Champagne for any party!

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 »

2004 Veuve Clicquot "Gold Label Reserve" Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* One of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit- and yeast-driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years." (9/2012)92 points Wine Spectator: "This fresh Champagne offers a lively bead and a smoky, mineral-tinged base note. Flavors of poached apple and pear, dried cherry, bread dough and lemon zest lead to a finish of good intensity and length. Very zesty. Drink now through 2022."

Baron Fuente "Grande Reserve" Brut Champagne (375ml)

This is a deliscous little half bottle! Baron Fuente is a negociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "sur pied", meaning that they pick the grapes.

This delicious Champagne is composed of 10% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 60% Meunier and had been aged three years on the lees. It is fermented at relatively cold temperatures in stainless steel with 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine has a very light, white gold color for the bl... Read More »

2005 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "With just a touch of bottle age giving a toasty character, this impressive wine is already showing some maturity. That said, the apple and citrus character, the mineral tight texture and crisp acidity promise some aging. The wine conveys a sense of elegance, intensity and richness. Drink now, but the wine will also age." (6/2014)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Vibrant pear and melon aromas are complicated by suggestions of ginger, brioche and smoky minerals. Dry, smoky and precise, offering intense orchard and pit fruit flavors that gain weight with aeration. A dusty mine ...Read More »
