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 »

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

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 »

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...

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.

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne

There is a tight structure, a hint of toast from bottle age and fresh acidity at the end. Ready to drink." (12/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "By far the best Piper Brut we’ve tasted in years, this is a full-bodied, oxidative, savory wine that would stand up to red meat.

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 »

If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, I think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor.

The Chateau de Bligny is a big property, one of the largest growers in all of Champagne at 75 acres. They also have one of the few Clos Champenois, a walled vineyard of just 2 acres which they bottle separately. The wines share a clean, refreshing character across the board, and that extra element of richness that has the Aube department as the darling are of all the sommelier's these days.- Gary Westby, K&L

J. Lassalle "Cachet d'Or" 1er Cru Brut Champagne

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright gold. Aromas and flavors of pear, anise, candied fig and ginger, with a spicy topnote. Juicy and precise, with strong finishing punch and very good clarity. I like this Champagne's blend of richness and energy." (12/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and firm, with a refined texture and flavors of black currant, biscuit, honey and licorice riding a lively bead to the lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2018." (10/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Premier Cru Cachet d’Or is an attractive entry-level wine laced with peaches, apricots, sweet spices and flowers. It shows excelle ...Read More »

Franck Bonville Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

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. This is the first time the Bonvilles have made an Extra Brut, and it is one of the best I have ever... Read More »

Michel Dervin Brut Champagne

This is an exciting and unique Champagne from a little known village called Cuchery. It is made by the man that gives the wine his name, Michel Dervin, who is also the wine maker for Domaine J. Laurens in Limoux. The wine has a wonderful brioche and subtle fruit nose. The flavors are quite concentrated and complex and it has a great toastiness as well as a lightness on its refreshing and long finish. The cuvee is a blend of 2004 and 2003 vintages. It is made out of 95% estate fruit from small plots in the villages of Cuchery, Damery, Reuil, and Chapelle ... Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. 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. Vibrant strawberry and orange zest aromas are complicated by notes of tea rose, smoky lees and chalky minerals. Bright, incisive red fruit flavors pick up a toasty nuance with air. Fresh, incisive and refreshingly tangy, with impressive finishing clarity and ...Read More »

Michel Loriot "Marie-Leopold" Sec Champagne

Our selection of sweet Champagne is so small as to be almost non-existent. This is due to the fact that most producers do not take the sweeter parts of their range seriously, and most often they use these blends as a clearing house for their worst Champagne, figuring that the sweetness will cover up the flaws in the base wine. This is not the case here. Mr. Loriot created this wine as a tribute to Leopold Loriot, who installed the first wine press in the family's house in 1903 and began making wines at their estate. In this era, almost all Champagne was ... Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(made from roughly two-thirds pinot noir and one-third chardonnay; L122107): Vivid yellow. Aromas of orange, buttered toast and white flowers are lifted by a bright mineral topnote. Rich and expansive on entry, then brighter and more lithe in the middle, offering fresh pear, citrus pith and ginger flavors and a touch of brioche. Closes on a spicy note, with strong thrust and impressive cling. Drinks very nicely right now but has the substance and spine to suggest that patience will be rewarded." (12/2013)91 points Wine & Spirits: "Scents of cedar, forest mushrooms and red frui ...Read More »

Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec Champagne

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light yellow-gold. Deeply pitched aromas of peach nectar, tangerine and honey, with a toasty topnote. Offers plump orchard fruit and floral flavors and a smooth texture, with a touch of honey adding depth. Finishes with good sappy persistence and lingering floral and candied fig notes. Not overtly sweet." (12/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich demi-sec without being too sweet. It has a good balance of ripe creamed-pear and baked-apple flavors along with a bright layer of acidity. It’s an harmonious whole, and ready to drink now." (12/2013)

Barnaut "Authentique" Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(roughly 85% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay, all from Bouzy): Bright orange-pink. Red berries, citrus zest, brioche and smoky minerals on the deeply scented nose. Chewy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering focused strawberry and bitter blood orange flavors and a hint of dusty minerals. The mineral quality adds cut to the finish, which lingers with very good smoky tenacity. This Champagne could stand up to spicy, strongly seasoned foods." (12/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "Smoky, this austere version shows angular acidity and a firm bead, offering flavor ...Read More »
