Henriot "Souverain" Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months." (12/2009)92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows lovely balance, with a lacy texture and a fine frame of acidity enlivening the rich flavors of toasted brioche, baked plum, graphite, crystallized honey and ground anise. Offers a smoky, lingering finish. Drink now through 2020." (11/2014)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Light gold. Lees-accented orchard an ...Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne Top Pick!
Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne

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. Oli... Read More »

2005 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
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 »

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 »

Lamoureux Rosé des Riceys

It is very rare to find the delicate, still Pinot Noir rosés from Riceys in the USA - grab it before it is gone... We only got three cases! (Gary Westby, K&L) This is a SERIOUS Rose, not a simple picnic type of Rose. It has a dark garnet colour and a nose of fresh picked strawberries. On the palate, strawberries, pomegranate and blood orange. Long, nicely acidic finish with cranberry undertones. This may even be a main course Rose! Our SF staff loved it when they tasted it today! -Scott Beckerley (3/13/2015)

2008 Pierre Paillard Bouzy Rouge Coteaux Champenois

This still, red Pinot Noir is a Coteaux Champenois, a separate appellation for wines from Champagne with no bubbles. Bouzy is famous throughout Champagne for making some of the best red wine in the region, and almost all of it is gobbled up in Champagne. Most of the production is blended in to make rose Champagne pink, and nearly all of the rest is consumed locally. K&L customers have been asking for many years about these wines and we finally secured a tiny amount (just 36 bottles!) to share. The last vintage they made was 2005! This is extraordinarily ...

Canard-Duchêne "Authentic" Brut Champagne

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(50% chardonnay, 40% pinot meunier and 10% pinot noir, all certified organic by Agriculture Biologique): Light gold. Fresh apple and lemon aromas and flavors are complemented by subtle floral and honey nuances. Light-bodied and clean, with good lift and finishing cut. In an understated, relatively straightforward style that's quite easy to drink." (12/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "Very fruity Champagne, well balanced with ripe pear and golden plum flavors, laced with kiwi. It has refreshing acidity, giving a bright, tight texture and a soft finish."

1999 Thienot "Cuvée Alain Thiénot" Brut Champagne

93 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly creamy and finely textured, this well-meshed version displays delicate layers of creamed apple, marzipan, pineapple pâte de fruit, fleur de sel and smoky roasted almond, while mouthwatering acidity lends freshness and balance. Drink now through 2023." (11/2013)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow-gold. Musky aromas of pear skin, anise, hazelnut and honey, with a hint of orange zest adding lift. Concentrated, tactile and broad, offering flavors of apple, buttered toast, poached pear and chamomile.

2002 Thienot "La Vigne aux Gamins" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A concentrated, dense wine, this is round and rich with fresh apple flavor, but also a hint of maturity—a touch of cookie and almonds on the finish. This is an impressive wine, full of flavor and great concentration." (12/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of marzipan and gumdrop add richness to the flavors of patisserie apple, lemon curd, smoke and honeycomb in this firm, well-cut version. Offers a finely detailed bead and a lasting finish, with a hint of blanched almond. Drink now through 2025." (11/2013) K&L Notes: This rarity comes from a miniscule one and a quarter acre plot of the Thie... Read More »

2003 Krug Brut Champagne

95 points Antonio Galloni: "Light yellow. Powerful, complex bouquet evokes fresh peach, pear, floral honey, green almond and smoky minerals. Deep, palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors show outstanding vivacity for a hot vintage, picking up ginger and talc notes with air. The strikingly long, sappy finish features zesty orange pith, smoky minerals and an echo of honeysuckle. I'd be in no rush to drink this one. (Josh Raynolds)" (12/2014)94 points Wine Spectator: "This offers fine detail and texture on the palate, carrying an expressive range of poached quince and black currant fruit, coffee liqueur ...Read More »

Canard-Duchêne "Charles VII" Brut Champagne

Wine Enthusiast: "This is a full, rich wine that has pears and yellow fruits to contrast a fresh minerality and brisk acidity. As the wine opens, it’s increasingly bright and crisp in character. A well balanced wine that’s full of fruitiness." (12/2013) K&L Notes: This is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay from Avize, Avenay, Ludes and Trepail. It is composed of 20% reserve wines and is dosed at 11 grams per liter. This crisp bottle of Champagne has a lot to offer with very good pear flavor and refreshing zip.

Fresh orange and pear aromas are complicated by chamomile, honey, herbs and fresh porcini. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense orchard fruit flavors braced by gentle acidity. A smoky, leesy nuance lingers on the long, supple finish. Drinking well now and showing good complexity." (11/2012)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Champagne exhibits both the freshness of the vintage and a sense of toasty maturity. Baked apple aromas are touched with notes of almonds and cookies.

Fluteau "Cuvee Reserve" Brut Champagne Back In Stock!
Fluteau "Cuvee Reserve" Brut Champagne

As its name indicates, this champagne has been left to age on the lees a minimum of three years. The extended time on the yeast gives it a robust, creamy texture. The blend is majority Pinot Noir (85%) with a touch of Chardonnay. It's a beautiful golden yellow with an abundant effervescence that provides a lovely bead and a fine, persistant stream of bubbles. A complex, refined, fruity nose with notes of peach marmalade combined with fresh raspberry, bergamot, honey and licorice.The Pinot Noir dominated palate is rich and fruity with a finish of yellow f...

2000 Krug Brut Champagne

96 points Wine & Spirits: "An immense 2000, this carries Krug’s symphonic complexity into the confines of a single vintage. While the year created many broad, fat-textured wines, this one adds muscle to that vintage character, reading as bold, juicy, serious and sexy. Its richness bristles with tension, tightening around the robust power of the wine as if to capture the sweetness of the earth. Extremely long, this will age with grace." (12/2013)95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2000 Vintage is just beginning to develop hints of tertiary complexity. Dried peach, pear, almond, honey and spice notes flesh out beau ...Read More »

Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and orange pith flavors and notes of toasty lees and candied flowers. Shows excellent clarity on the seamless, spicy, impressively long finish. Twelve percent of the Pinot Noir in the blend was added as still wine."

1996 Krug Brut Champagne
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Krug Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99ST, 99WS, 98AG, 98RP). Wine & Spirits: "It's hard to imagine how a wine of this power can sustain perfect balance. What is now a more nonchalant intensity in the aroma was, in fact, too much to handle when we tasted this last year, as if the wine had no time for mere humans with their limited sense receptors. If you stop to taste ripe pear, ginger spice, apple blossom and butterscotch the wine leaves you lost in random flavor descriptors as it soars off into a vinous glow that lasts for minutes. This may well be the greatest vintage wine of Henri Krug's career (unless it is challenged by the 2002). It is impossible to predict how long this wine will thrive in bottle, though considering the current fine condition of the 1959 Krug, the first 50 years are a given." (12/2008)

Fluteau Brut Rosé Champagne Back In Stock!
Fluteau Brut Rosé Champagne

Wow, is this stuff dark! If you are interested in tasting a red wine Champagne, this is your opportunity. This potent, even tannic, Champagne reminds me very much of red wine, but with wonderful bubbles. It is entirely estate grown Pinot Noir, from the Fluteau estate in Gye-Sur-Seine, made by the macerating all of the grape skins so they stay in contact with all of the juice to get the maximum flavor and color. This rosé is a great bottle for a picnic with cold cut sandwiches, or even with dessert. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

2007 Thienot "Cuvée Garance" Brut Blanc de Rouges Champagne

This bottling is named after Garance Thienot, who handles the communications and marketing for the family firm.They have chosen to call this Champagne "Blanc de Rouges" instead of "Blanc de Noirs" because of the effort that they put into keeping the wine feminine. This is 100% Pinot Noir and a large proportion of the fruit comes from the grand cru Ay that the family purchased from Krug as well as from Garance's own personal vines in the village of Tauxieres, on the border with Bouzy. This is one of the most intriguing, delicate examples of pure Pinot Cha... Read More »
