Boulard-Bauquaire "Trepail" Vieilles Vignes Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

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

Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne (375ml) Top Pick!
Franck Bonville Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne (375ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the heartland of Chardonnay in Champagne comes this rich, creamy, apple-flavored wine. It has lively acidity, balanced with some sweetness from the dosage. It has weight and a crisp aftertaste." (12/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly creamy, with pretty violet and smoke notes winding through the biscuit and lemon meringue flavors. This is subtle, featuring well-integrated acidity and a supple structure overall. Easy to like." (2/2010) Jancis Robinson: "100% Chardonnay from Oger, Cramant and Avize. From a 50-ha estate. Olivier Bonville is the third generation to make wine here. Super-clean f ...Read More »

Franck Bonville Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

This little bottle of rosé is delicious! This is the first time we have had the rosé from Bonville, an estate that grows only Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. Olivier Bonville was able to trade with Ambonnay celebrity-producer Paul Dethune for the red wine that goes into this blend of 92% Chardonnay and 8% Pinot Noir. You might wonder what such a small dash of Pinot would do besides add color, and I was skeptical myself. The results are great--this wine has the freshness and drinkability of the Brut Selection, but with great black cherry Pinot character in the... 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 »

2009 Larmandier-Bernier Terre de Vertus Blanc de Blancs Champagne

This all-Chardonnay, all-estate Champagne is super exciting, and any real Champagne fan should try it at least once! This brut zero does not come across as austerely dry, but is rather rich due the exceptional ripeness of the two plots in Vertus that this wine is sourced from and the broadness of the 2009 harvest. I can't wait to take one of these home for sushi and Champagne, as this special bottle gets the balance between precision and pleasure exactly right. Don't miss this one!

Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Champagne

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of citrus fruits, pear, honeysuckle and iodine, with a toasty overtone gaining strength with aeration. Dry and sharply focused, offering vibrant lime and bitter pear skin flavors and a touch of honey. Puts on weight with air and finishes with excellent clarity, power and mineral-driven persistence." (12/2013)92 points Wine & Spirits: "A pure Côte des Blancs chardonnay, this includes 25 percent reserve wine in the blend. At first, everything about it is white, from chalk to oyster mushroom and grapefruit pith. That dry sensation yield ...Read More »

Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is, not surprisingly, actually quite similar to the Pure but with just a bit more complexity and a hair more toastiness. This is also intensely effervescent with a mouth feel that is exceptionally vibrant before culminating in clean, cool, persistent and impressively refreshing finish. This is a pleasure to drink and it could be enjoyed now or held for additional development though I like the energy if offers now. A fine value." (9/2012)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Livel ...Read More »

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. Finishes with good power and breadth, a refreshingly bitter citrus pith ...Read More »

Charles de Cazanove Brut Rosé Champagne (375ml)

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." (12/2012) K&L Notes: This round, rich rosé is a real affordable luxury. Composed of 75% Pinot Noir, 15% Meunier and 10% Chardonnay this tasty rosé gets its color from estate-grown Bouzy Rouge. Although thus far off of the radar of wine critics, I think this is the best wine from de Cazanove with its lovely strawberry color and aromas. Full ... Read More »

Charles de Cazanove Brut Champagne (375ml)

92 points Wine Spectator: "This Champagne offers an array of flavor, including toasted brioche, Gala apple, lemon zest, graphite and ginger, with a touch of honey. Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018." (6/2011) K&L Notes: This Champagne is composed of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. It has a great, open nose of sweet butter and even a touch of orange peel. On the palate it is clean and refreshing. This is a bright, easy going Champagne for any party!

1995 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 1995 Salon Blanc de Blancs Champagne (96WS). 96 points and a Collectibles designation from the Wine Spectator: "This is assertive and grainy in texture, a big-boned Champagne that's powerful and intensely flavored. Biscuit, graphite, honeysuckle, peach and floral notes come together, defined by the firm structure, and last through the complex finish. Needs a little more time for the elements to harmonize. Drink now through 2018. " (12/05) K&L's notes - Salon is one of the great names in Champagne for a very good reason. It is made only in great vintages (the decade of the eighties only produced '82,'83,'85 and '88) and only from grapes from one village, the grand cru of Mesnil. This village grows the most sought after Chardonnay in Champagne. Half of the vineyards that make the wine are owned by Salon outright, and the other half come from farmers that Salon has been working with for generations. The vines average 40 years of age. Salon suppresses malolactic ferm

2002 Thiénot "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 »

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

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Dom Perignon is at first intensely floral, with perfumed jasmine that dominates the bouquet. 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. Geoffroy describes the vintage as very ripe and adds that some of the Chardonnay ...Read More »

According to Michael Broadbent's Great Vintage Wine Book (1980 Edition): "Tasted and enthusiastically noted at its first presentation: pale, elegant, and- I must use the word again- refined. Needed a little time in bottle." The 1971 vintage was given 4 stars by Mr. Broadbent.
