2004 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2004 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2004 Dom Pérignon continues to develop beautifully. A vibrant, focused Champagne, the 2004 clearly reflects the personality of the year. Freshly cut flowers, white peaches and pears are woven together in a Champagne that impresses for its focus and energy. Chiseled saline note support the crystalline finish. I imagine the 2004 will always remain relatively bright and linear, but at the same time, each time I have tasted it over the last two years the 2004 seems to have a little more body and broader shoulders. The 2004 will appeal most to readers who ...Read More »

Superfine bead, bread and spiced biscuits, candied ripe red fruits and a sense of tight-knit complexity. Some grapefruit, lemon pith & gently flinty notes too - impressive nose.

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!

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 »

2006 Louis Roederer Brut Nature Champagne

Jancis Robinson: "Very firm and rather unyielding initially on the nose. Textured on the palate and pretty austere initially. This is not a champagne to drink thoughtlessly as an aperitif or at a reception. This is a serious statement that demands food. The mousse is notably gentle and the whole is impressively persistent. Very dry indeed though not aggressively tart by any means. Then it seems much more substantial after a mouthful of smoked salmon on blini. And after some jamon iberico it was a revelation."

2009 Marguet Père et Fils "Amboniacus" Brut Rosé Champagne

Benoit Marguet is one of the leaders of the organic revolution in Champagne, and all of his estate vineyards are in conversion to biodynamic farming. He has returned to plowing the vineyards with a horse rather than with a tractor, as the horse hooves aerate the soil while a tractor compacts the soil. In the cellar, he is returning to wood as a fermentation vessel rather than stainless.

2004 Pierre Moncuit "Cuvée Nicole Moncuit Vieilles Vignes" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Cuvee Nicole Moncuit VV is a little more structured and implosive than the Brut Blanc de Blancs Gran Cru. Still quite primary, the VV is going to need at least another year or two in bottle for the aromatics to fully develop, especially for readers who appreciate tertiary nuances. Today the 2004 VV is all about fruit and structure, both of which it has in spades. Dosage was 8 grams per liter."

It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound.

This all-Chardonnay, all-estate Champagne is super exciting, and any real Champagne fan should try it at least once!

2004 Moët & Chandon "Grand Vintage" Brut Rosé Champagne

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This serious, ripe offering is packed with red berry and stone fruit flavors. It also has complex touches of toast and acidity, producing a sense of dryness. This is finely balanced and is now ready to drink, but it will also likely age for a few more years" (12/2012)93 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, focused version, this is driven by smoke-tinged minerality and racy acidity, while flavors of strawberry pâte de fruit, candied orange zest, apricot tart and ground ginger and clove mesh with the sleek structure.
