2002 Bollinger R.D. Extra Brut Champagne (Previously $349) Top Pick!
2002 Bollinger R.D. Extra Brut Champagne (Previously $349)

99 points James Suckling: "Super fresh, this is striking given the 10 years in the cellars; it has a fine citrus nose - plenty of lemon, grapefruit, yellow chalky notes, some lighter floral elements too. The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g) and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture, smooth, fine and long. The citrus flavours give way to the driving surging acidity, thunderous acidity, really driving and powerful. The finish twists very slowly through to light-toasted cashew fruit flavours, but lemon citrus prevails. This is thrilling Champagne. Disgorged 22nd October, 2013. Dr ...Read More »

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

97 points Antonio Galloni: "This tasting only serves to highlight just how great the 2004 Dom Pérignon is. A wine that has totally blossomed in bottle, the 2004 is firing on all cylinders right now. Rich, ample and beautifully nuanced, the 2004 has it all; expressive aromatics, deep fruit and more than enough structure to age well for decades. I have been tasting the 2004 since before it was released and it just keeps getting better and better. Today, it is stunning. It is amazing to consider that in 2004, yields were the largest ever recorded in Champagne. (AG)" (5/2014)96 points James Suckling: "A return to ...Read More »

2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The depths of this wine, with its layers of fruit and steeliness, are superb. Even after 12 years, it still needs to age further. Drink from 2018. Cellar Selections." (12/2014)99 points James Suckling: "A subtle, intense champagne that shows complex character of lilac, mineral, sliced lemon, apple and white pepp ...Read More »

Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Krug "Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Krug’s NV Brut Grande Cuvee ID 112001 -- disgorged already over the winter of 2011-2012 but then further aged before release -- reinforces the belief that, thankfully, even wine lovers of modest means who occasionally splurge on Krug Grande Cuvee will be rewarded with a wine that need not fear comparison with this house’s more limited and far more expensive bottlings, nor for that matter with any other wines of Champagne. The harmonious juxtaposition of creaminess and lees enrichment with bright, juicy citricity and of expansive richness with levity is s ...Read More »

2006 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "Deep pinot-driven presence is the first and lasting impression. Power with control. 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. In the mouth it is rich, powerful, mouth-filling and flavoursome with a core of the same biscuity red fruit flavour, savoury nutty notes and a wrap of assertive, persistent acidity that holds rich powerful flavour deep and focused whilst maintaining a polished, gently creamy texture. Long chalky b ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

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.

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 »

Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne (1.5L)

93 points James Suckling: "I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers, and sliced pears and peaches. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish. Mostly 2011 with some reserve wines. From 47% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir. Bottled April 2012." (9/2014)91 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness.

Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle" Brut Champagne

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée has always been nonvintage, a blending of top wines from top years. It remains an exceptional wine, not quite dry and with a tinge of softness, but so elegant and balanced. This bottling has just the right amount of maturity, hinting at toast while guarding every iota of fruitiness." (12/2014)94 points The Wine News: "Moderate straw-yellow hue with fine, active bubbles.

Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time."

2000 Krug Brut Champagne

97 points Wine & Spirits: "When first released two years ago, this wine showed some of the exoticism of the 2000 vintage, the broad flavors ranging from lobster broth to lemon zest and star anise. As it has matured, the wine’s richness is at once more baroque and more seamlessly woven into a deep golden beauty. Rather than fresh, it feels brisk and lithe. The wine’s fragrance is layered in deep complexities and elevated to sunny high notes. A glorious vintage of Krug."

2004 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2004 Dom Ruinart is seriously beautiful. A vivid, captivating Champagne, the 2004 flows across the palate with gorgeous, crystalline fruit and superb balance. Lemon, pastry, apple and white flowers are all layered into the finish. A model of total elegance, the 2004 is a wine for the patient. It won't be ready to deliver maximum pleasure for a number of years, even though it is absolutely dazzling today. The 2004 is 69% Chardonnay from the Côtes des Blancs and 31% Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims." (5/2014) K&L Notes: From the producer: "The Chardonnay is th... Read More »

2002 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of dried apple, cream, mango and ginger follow through to a full, dense palate, but it’s very fine. The bead is so, so fine. The texture is like silk. Truly superb. I love the contrast between richness and freshness. It builds slowly on the palate and finishes so long and rich. This was 10 years on the lees. Mostly Pinot Noir." (10/2014)95 points Wine Spectator: "There's a sense of quiet elegance and grace to this harmonious Champagne. Refined and lacy in texture, with finely wrought acidity lending focus and length to the spice- and graphite-laced flavors of ripe a ...Read More »

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.

Krug Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Wine & Spirits: "For the last three years, Krug Rosé has been consistently brilliant, back to the ethereal grace the wine once delivered under the masterful blending of Henri Krug. It captures Pinot Noir with the vinous reality of a grand cru Burgundy, elevating those flavors into a more delicate ecstasy of taste. The brisk freshness of the wine might bring you to a cool limestone cave and just-picked fraises des bois. The complexity of the reserve wine lifts the palate to a more celestial realm.

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.

This is a wine with some real tension between complexity and freshness that makes for incredibly engaging drinking. The nose offers up a little white peppery edge from the pinot; oyster shell saline freshness, red florals, sweet smelling woody spices and brioche, spiced biscuits and subtle roasted coffee notes - impressively complex.

Michel Arnould Carte d'Or Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

A mistake at the winery kept the vintage off of the labels of these Jeroboams, but we know that they are either 1999 or 2000... So we have knocked $75 off each Jeroboam. This wine is a blend of very old vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rose. This wine has been given the time that it needs for the two very different terroirs to marry, and is a spectacular example of the small scale blending of tw... Read More »

2002 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

With time in the glass the wine gains richness as the flavors turn decidedly riper and almost tropical. Ripe apricots, passion fruit and peaches emerge from this flashy, opulent Dom Perignon. The wine's volume makes it approachable today, but readers in search of more complexity will want to cellar this for at least a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to drop off.

The aromatics are just starting to show hints of development, but the 2002 has the pure density to drink well for many, many years. The vivid, crystalline finish is a thing of beauty. The 2002 is 80% Chardonnay (the Dom Ruinart base) with the addition of 20% ...Read More »

2002 Ayala "Perle d'Ayala" Brut Champagne

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Ah, 2002. Where else but in Champagne can you buy a 12-year-old wine with this freshness of fruit, immediately brisk with scents of lemon and orange, generously layering in flavors of golden plums? At first, all that fruit seems heady, but air brings out the rootier depths, acidity ghosting the finish with the sort of masculine power that will make great 2002s riveting wines for decades. If you open this now, decant it and have a platter of shellfish on hand, especially cracked crab claws." (12/2013)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold.

Krug Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

96 points Wine & Spirits: "The best bottle of Krug Rosé we’ve tasted in some time, this is a glorious pinot noir, cloud-like in its raspberry and forest floor scents. It follows a chalk line of flavor, seamless and linear while the wine rolls and tumbles in precisely choreographed length. Delicate pink heaven in a glass." (12/2013)95 points Wine Spectator: "Very expressive and beautifully balanced, this is all in the details, from the palate-caressing texture to the vibrant acidity, finely meshed with flavors of black raspberry, plum, wild strawberry, candied citrus peel, honey and ground spice, accented by ...Read More »
