Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Light orange. Sharply focused red berry and tangerine scents are complicated by suggestions of allspice and cinnamon, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Sappy and minerally on the palate, offering fresh strawberry and blood orange flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Packs a serious punch but carries no excess weight and finishes stony and very long, with echoing red berry character. (JR)" (1/2015)92 points Wine Spectator: "A pretty rosé, harmonious and lithe, with flavors of dried strawberry and smoke carrying on a fine bead and intermingling with the accents of toasted almon ...Read More »

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)

Barnaut "Grande Réserve" Brut Champagne

92 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (12/2004)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Smoky black raspberry and blood orange scents are lifted by a chalky mineral nuance and a hint of white pepper. Chewy and expansive in the mouth, offering intense red and dark berry and buttered toast flavors and a touch of bitter citrus pith. Finishes with very good power and focus, leaving a suave floral pastille note behind." (12/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "A hint of peat smoke accents flavors of juicy black cherry, licorice, fruit cake and lemon curd in this tightly knit version, backed by firm acidity and texture. Drink now thr ...Read More »

Barnaut "Authentique" Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright orange-pink. Red berries, citrus zest, brioche and smoky minerals on the deeply scented nose. Chewy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering focused strawberry and bitter blood orange flavors and a hint of dusty minerals. The mineral quality adds cut to the finish, which lingers with very good smoky tenacity. This Champagne could stand up to spicy, strongly seasoned foods." (12/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "Smoky, this austere version shows angular acidity and a firm bead, offering flavors of black currant, pomegranate, licorice snap and slivered almond ...Read More »

Barnaut Blanc de Noirs Bouzy Grand Cru Brut Champagne

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light gold. Powerful raspberry and tangerine aromas are complicated by gingery spices and fresh flowers, with a suave overlay of chalky minerality. Creamy red berry and orchard fruit flavors show very good depth and are braced by zesty acidity. A weighty but lively Champagne with a long, spicy finish that repeats the floral note." (12/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Bouzy fruit with an intensely yeasty nose. Big, bold and brawny. Not the most complex grand cru but *quite good value*." (11/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru reveals good balance and delineation in an accessi ...Read More »

Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

Jancis Robinson: "100% Pinot Noir. Dosage 9 g/l. Mostly from 2006 with a bit of reserve wine from 2005. The faintest hint of pink. A fruity nose and chewy, chalky, substantial red-apple fruit on the palate. Lots here and good for the money. A champagne for food." (3/2010) K&L Notes: This is a real deal Champagne from Courteron, a village in the Aube department of Champagne, closer to Chablis than the city of Reims! Their methods are as Burgundian as their location. They are biodynamic, too, the strictest form of organic viticulture. The assemblage of several Pinot Noir vines from diff... Read More »

Taittinger "Prestige" Brut Rosé Champagne

92 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, toasty rosé, with roasted hazelnut and smoke notes underscoring kirsch, dried strawberry, piecrust and fresh ginger flavors. This is lip-smacking, softened and balanced by a fine, creamy texture. Drink now through 2023." (11/2013)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Light orange-pink. Cherry, orange zest and fresh rose aromas show very good clarity and energy. Sappy red fruit flavors display a spicy quality, picking up energy and a floral nuance with air. Concentrated, vibrant and precise, finishing on a zesty mineral note, with lingering spiciness and firm grip. (JR)" (1/2015) Jancis Robinson: "15% st ...Read More »

Drappier Rose Brut Champagne

92 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly floral on the nose, with hints of lavender and verbena, and spicy on the palate, offering ground clove and anise accents to the flavors of pastry dough, wild cherry, golden raisin, grated coconut and fleur de sel. Harmonious and elegant throughout, presenting a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2021." (11/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Rose is very, very pretty. This is a fresh, energetic wine that impresses for its length and persistence. The wiry finish suggests the wine will drink well for a number of years, perhaps more if the fruit fleshes out. ...Read More »

Charles de Cazanove Brut Rosé Champagne

91 points Wine Spectator: "Refined, with well-meshed acidity providing a backbone for delicate flavors of dried currant, graphite, green plum, meringue and grapefruit zest. Fresh, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. (Web Only—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. (JR)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: This rich, round rosé is a truly affordable luxury. Although thus far off the radar of wine critics, I th... 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 ...

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.

Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Rosé" Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L) *Oversized, Ships as a 3L

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "***Three Stars*** Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. And its latter palate grip is exactly what one should expect from the genre. While service with ...Read More »

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 »

2005 Thienot Brut Champagne

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir; L1R1YD19): Bright yellow. 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. The palate is substantially ...Read More »

2004 Bollinger "Vieilles Vignes Françaises" Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

From the winery: "In the early 20th century, the vines of Champagne were destroyed by phylloxera. Everything had to be replanted using American rootstock, to fight the devastating insect. Everything except three Bollinger plots classified as Grands Crus: Chaudes Terres and Clos St Jacques, in Aÿ, Croix Rouge in Bouzy. These three plots are grown the traditional way, following the provinage method, worked by hand and even sometimes with the help of a cart-horse. Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Françaises is a symbol of a bygone era: a reminiscent, extraordinary... Read More »

1996 Krug "Clos d'Ambonnay" Brut Champagne

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Clos d’Ambonnay is very similar to the Clos du Mesnil in this vintage. It has the same piercing purity and minerality with the heft of the Pinot still to fully emerge. Hints of menthol, spices and berries wrap around the eternal finish. Clos d’Ambonnay, from a single, walled-in parcel in the village of Ambonnay, is in many ways the red equivalent of Clos du Mesnil. (97+)" (6/2011)95 points Antonio Galloni: "Krug’s 1996 Clos d’Ambonnay comes across as quite nuanced and understated, with precise, crystalline fruit and tons of detail." (10/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "A warm, inviting Champagne, despi ...Read More »
