Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

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, passing massive savings on to you. This house is from Mesnil, the southernmost Grand Cru in Champagne and home to Salon and Krug's Clos de Mesnil. This Champagne is all Chardonnay and all Grand Cru from the villages of Mesnil, Oger, Cramant and Avize--a roll call of the finest crus for Chardonnay in all of Champagne and all Veritas-certified for sustainable agriculture....

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 »

Jean-Jacques Lamoureux "Réserve" Brut Champagne

This is one of the most exciting small-estate Champagnes that we have found recently. 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. Frothy and just plain lovely! Watch the bubbles go on and on and on when it is in the glass. Initially, there are baked apple flavors followed a mid-palate of grapefuit and nectarine leading to a creamy finish. A very small 15,000 bottle production. Winemaker Vivien Lamoureux i...

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 »

Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

The Ariston's vineyards are vastly different than those of the other blanc de blancs producers that we carry. The steeper slopes, less chalk and more fossils in the soil of Brouillet make for a rich, creamy style Chardonnay Champagne that will appeal to just about anyone. This is one of my favorite toasting Champagnes. All of the flavors are up-front; it is open knit and fun. It is a perfect way to start a party. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

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

Launois "Veuve Clemence" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

The Veuve Clemence gets four years of aging on the lees to the Reserve's three, and comes from older vineyards. They are both entirely estate-grown, Grand Cru Chardonnay. Before now, this cuvee was only available for the French market, but because of our great relationship with Launois, we were able to convince them to sell us a little. If you like it, don't hesitate--they may not have more for us the next time I order.

The juice for this blend comes only from vineyards classed Grand Cru, notably from around Oger and Le Mesnil sur Oger, and is made entirely from the "coeurs de cuvee", or the best of the best.

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 what such a small dash of Pinot would do besides add color, and I was skeptical myself.

Out of a production of only 2,500 bottles, only 10 cases of this Extra Brut were allocated to the U.S. This wine developed out of dosage trials that Olivier Bonville performed while finding the right amount of sugar to add to the 2006 vintage. In fact, this wine, which does not have a vintage on it, is the same base as his 2006 vintage--but only has 2.5 grams per liter of dosage instead of the seven grams that he decided on for the regular vintage release.

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.
