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...

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

Pierre Paillard "Acte 1" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (2009)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and floral, this is supple and well-knit, offering an appealing mix of apricot, toasted almond, biscuit and subtle chalk. Lightly creamy, with a citrusy finish. Disgorged January 2012. Drink now through 2018." (7/2013) K&L Notes: Blanc de blancs from Bouzy? Yes--and what a blanc de blancs it is! This single-varietal, single-vineyard, single-harvest Champagne comes entirely from the Les Motellettes parcel which was planted in 1961. This bottle is all 2009, although not labeled as a vintage you can find the information on the back label. Quentin Paillard, his bro... Read More »

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 ...
