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 »

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The style of Piper-Heidsieck’s nonvintage Champagne is getting more and more refined. It is drier than in the past while also full of ripe white fruits. 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.

Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne (375ml)

93 points James Suckling: "I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers, and sliced pears and peaches.

From 47% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and the rest pinot noir. Bottled April 2012."

Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Champagne

Intense, mineral-accented aromas of citrus fruits, pear, honeysuckle and iodine, with a toasty overtone gaining strength with aeration. Dry and sharply focused, offering vibrant lime and bitter pear skin flavors and a touch of honey. Puts on weight with air and finishes with excellent clarity, power and mineral-driven persistence."

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne (375ml)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune. Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again. This is a fabulous Brut Premier. The Brut Premier is based on the 2007 vintage, with approximately 20% ...Read More »

2009 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

94 points Wine & Spirits: "This delicate style of saignée Champagne is a Roederer specialty; the firm completed a new cellar in 2008 with a sole focus on rosé. What sets Roederer rosé apart is the beautiful freshness of a wine like this 2009. Its color is a light orange gold rather than pink or red. Its scent hints at pink grapefruit, the flavors ripe and tangy, deepening to red fruit. As a young wine, its austere structure is ideal for oysters. Cellar it and you’ll have a wine for the dinner table." (12/2014)94 points Wine Spectator: "Tangy raspberry and black cherry fruit is underscored by smoke and minera ...Read More »

Fresh, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. (Web-2012)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark pink. Red berry and cherry scents are lifted by a zesty citrus pith quality. Offers juicy raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of anise. Clings nicely on the finish, which shows good energy and a slightly bitter edge." (12/2012) K&L Notes: This rich, round Rosé is a truly affordable luxury. Although thus far off the radar of wine critics, I think it's... Read More »

Jacquesson "Cuvée 737" Extra Brut Champagne
