2013 Ravenswood "Icon" Sonoma County Red Blend (Previously $75) (Previously $75)
Top Pick!
There is simply no other winery or winemaker in history that has done more to put California Old Vine Zinfandel on the map than Ravenswood and Joel Peterson. Throughout many decades they have fought to protect some of the oldest and finest vineyards in the state. As California's "native" grape fell in and out of fashion, Joel stood as an ever present guardian of these precious vineyards as many others tore out vines in favor of more in vogue varietals. From this long commitment Joel has acquired legendary status among his peers as a guru of old vines. Th...

2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience...

2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Cristal is a perfect wine, and Champagne simple does not get any better. This incredible wine offers a beautiful perfume of clean, crisp fruits, layers of complexity in its toasted spice and white flowers, and an utterly seamless, yet powerful style on the palate. This is a rich, decadent expression of Cristal yet it’s still crystalline and elegant, with no sensation of weight, and it just glides over the palate. Haut Couture at its finest and this majestic, profound, legendary Cristal can be drunk anytime over the comin...

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Cinnamon and dried nutmeg add to the experience of bread dough and rose petals. Flavorful on the medium-bodied palate and finely poised with bright acidity. Medium-long on the finish." (05/2019) 93 points Decanter: "Gentle red fruits rise from the glass. In the mouth it's attractively bright and youthful, with citrus and cranberry notes.The very fresh acidity and primary fruits give way to autolytic notes and cappuccino with time, followed by a long, savoury, saline finish. (JS)" (12/2018) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Lacy in...

Egrot (formerly Elisabeth Goutorbe) Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
This Champagne used to be called Elisabeth Goutorbe Cuvée Éclatante. Elisabeth changed the name over to her married name Egrot when she and her husband moved out of her parents' facility in Ay, and into their own. It is a 100% estate-grown, direct-import gem. Elisabeth and Jean-Marie are willing to wait for the wine to be right before selling it, and unlike any other producer we work with, their non-vintage Champagne is kept longer than the vintage. The Egrot Brut is based on 2008, with reserves from 2007, and the current batch has seen eight years on th...

Krug "Grande Cuvée" 168ème Édition Brut Champagne
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
William Kelly in Wine Advocate: "As readers will know, the concept behind Grande Cuvée is to draw on the maison's unrivaled library of reserve wines to complement the base yielded by each successive vintage, supplementing any deficiencies and tempering any excesses. Each 'Édition' of Grande Cuvée typically contains considerably more than 100 different wines and is the result of six months of intensive tasting by the Krug team. The aim, as Cellar Master Eric Lebel describes it, is not to produce the same wine each year, but to produce the best possible wi...

2017 Moulin de la Gardette "Cuvée Ventabren" Gigondas
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "Grown on sandstone and marl, the fruit for this wine is hand-picked, destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts then bottled without filtration or fining after maturation in old foudres. It's a beautifully natural expression of strawberry and raspberry fruits, with a juicy slick of crushed berries flowing across your tongue, ending with some massy, textural tannins. A perfectly balanced, joyful and drinkable expression of 2017 Gigondas with incredible purity. (MW)" (10/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Gigondas Ven...

2017 Hartford Court Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A crazy good value, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is the appellation release from this team, and it comes from all of the estate vineyards across the Green Valley, Laguna Ridge, and Sebastopol regions. Complex notes of strawberries, cranberries, violets, pine forest, and flowers all flow to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir that has a kiss of salinity and marine notes, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This beautiful wine competes with wines costing 2-3 times the price. Maturity: 2019-2027" (06/2019)

2017 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a gorgeous wine that captures all the best of the Anthill Farms style. Pliant and generous, with tons of bright and saline energy, the 2017 is a wonderfully complete wine. Freshly cut flowers, chalk, mint and white pepper give the 2017 its striking freshness and nuance. This is such a pretty wine in its peer group. In a word: superb. (AG)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This appellation is widely described as "sprawling" as it encompasses half or more of the county. Our fruit comes fro...

Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly floral, this creamy crowd-pleasing Champagne shows good balance, with a lively mix of Honeycrisp apple, passion fruit and smoked almond. (AN)" (12/2015) 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 fresh nose, smells like a health scrub. Vigorous mousse. Crisp edges and a creamy middle, streaked with verbena. More green than lemon, and just slightly sour. Quite weighty and substantial yet with a cutting ed...

Mas Codina Cava Brut Reserva Penedès
Top Pick!
Mas Codina is a 40-hectare estate in Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Brut Reserva Cava was hand-harvested from 25- to 40-year-old vines and estate-bottled. Though it does not say it on the label, the current disgorgement is based entirely on the 2015 harvest. Vines are planted in calcareous and sandy clay soils which keep the wine minerally and lively. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle, and is aged on its lees for a minimum of two years before disgorgement. Varietals include Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. 100%...

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Spectator: "Richly spiced, with ground anise, clove, ginger and cardamom, this offers a lively bead, fresh acidity and flavors of quince, honey, pastry dough and golden raisin. Offers a soft, creamy finish. (AN)" (12/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor. It is taut with a cool feel. (RV)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: This is one of the best Champagnes we carry, regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters-acre Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this ...

2016 Scattered Peaks Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
The 2015 release of Scattered Peaks received a 97-point score from Decanter magazine and quicky became one of the best selling wines of the year here at K&L. While not professionally reviewed yet, the 2016 is another stunner and promises to be just as highly tounted. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer) Winery note: "Scattered Peaks is a powerful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon carefully curated and elegantly crafted by legendary Napa Valley Winemaker, Joel Aiken (27 years as winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyards). Bold and full-bodied, Scattered Peaks of...

2016 La Fortuna "Magnus" Sant'Antimo Rosso
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "Attractive currants and berries with hints of walnuts and cedar. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish." (06/2019) K&L Notes: 40% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Petit Verdot.

Michel Arnould "Reserve" Brut Verzenay Champagne
Top Pick!
90 points Decanter: "Opens with a fanfare of peach, pear and spiced lemon; subtle architecture in the mouth with a chalky subtext and attractive orchard fruit, transported by a flowing mousse. Pretty accomplished and serious. (panel tasting)" (02/2017) K&L Notes: If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, I think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor. This is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, entirely from estate vineyards in the Grand Cru o...

2012 Fallet-Dart Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
The Fallet family traces its wine growing history back to 1610, and following the marriage of Geneviève Dart and Gaston Fallet in 1953 the Fallet-Dart brand was founded in 1970. The wine is composed of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir that is fermented in a mix of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks and aged for at least seven years on the lees.
Price: $44.99

2017 Liparita Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $60) (Previously $60)
Top Pick!
The historic Liparita label traces its origin all the way back to the late 1800s. The founder, William Keyes, was an early pioneer in the history of California winemaking, having been among the first to designate an appellation wine with his Howell Mountain Claret. Unfortunately, the combination of Prohibition and then phylloxera took its toll on many wineries early on, including Liparita. The label was revived several times over the past century, but it was Napa Valley grower Spencer Hoopes who finally resurrected the historic name in 2006 by bringing L...

Antech Blanquette de Limoux Brut Nature
Top Pick!
90 points Decanter: "Gentle apple-aniseed aroma and flavour. Clean and persistent with manifest concentration and a bone dry finish. A well made, elegant wine. (2019 DWWA)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: Antech's Brut Nature is produced with no added dosage, which translates to a super clean and crisp glass of bubbles. It is composed of 90% Mauzac, 5% Chenin Blanc and 5% Chardonnay. All harvesting is done by hand. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, and the wine undergoes a 12-month elevage on the lees, à la méthode traditionelle, before being disgorge...

Michel Arnould "La Grande Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Pure and complex aromas speak of plenty of yeast, brioche, freshly sliced citrus and a whiff of rose petal. On the palate there is equally good complexity thanks to the high percentage of pinot noir to the medium-bodied, firm and utterly delicious flavors that are shaped by a moderately firm and fine effervescence before culminating in a refreshing and inviting finish. This isn't the most elegant Champagne you'll try but I'll wager you won't taste many that have this kind of depth for the price. " (06/2018) K&L Not...

Launois "Veuve Clemence" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
The Veuve Clemence gets four years of aging on the lees to the Reserve's three, and comes from older vineyards. They are both entirely estate-grown, Grand Cru Chardonnay. Before now, this cuvée was only available for the French market, but because of our great relationship with Launois, we were able to convince them to sell us a little. If you like it, don't hesitate--they may not have more for us the next time I order. While the wine certainly has mid-palate power, it is a dry, serious Champagne that loves to be paired with shellfish and is a wonder wit...

2015 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Lovely black-cherry, lavender and rose-petal character on the nose. Full body and firm, tight tannins that add structure and depth. Extremely long and intense. Excellent." (09/2019)

2017 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône

The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquière recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.

Montechiara Prosecco
Top Pick!
This has become a go-to favorite for customers and staff alike at K&L. Priced at a level that allows for corks to pop any old time it suits you, the Montechiara phenomenon continues to gain followers by the day. See for yourself why this value sparkler is getting so much attention.

2016 Heir Apparent Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $90) (Previously $90)
Top Pick!
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Red Blend Heir Apparent is blended of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 28% Petit Verdot and 2% Petite Sirah. It has a deep garnet-black color and lifted nose of black and red cherries, cassis and earth with wafts of menthol and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, it is plush, juicy and spicy in the mouth and offers good length. (LPB)" (12/2018) K&L Notes: A powerful, full-bodied red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and a splash of Petite Sirah. Fruit is sourced from great vineyards in...

Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

2017 Château de Chemilly Chablis
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "A complete wine with a beautifully complex citrus intensity, delicate floral notes, ripe stone fruit, crushed oyster shell and an underlying creamy smokiness. *Gold Medal Decanter World Wine Awards 2019*" (06/2019) K&L Notes: Perhaps no other region in Burgundy has undergone a greater turnaround. Chablis went from being one of the most important wine regions in France to almost extinction in the 1950s, and then back to a thriving, excelling region. This is an exciting wine, with vibrant citrus notes, zesty flavors of sea breeze, we...

1976 L'Encantada 42 Year Old "Domaine Le Sablé #19" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
This wonderful cask of ultra mature Armagnac is proof that we're still in an absurd state with regards to the price of old brandy from Gascogne. This rare product comes from a domaine that only produced 3 vintages - 1973, 1974 and 1976. We were lucky to acquire a cask of 1974 before they completely sold out and have worked hard to keep in Encantada's good graces. We were overjoyed to have been offered this exceptional barrel at more or less the same price as the one we sold previously. Sablé was a very traditional production using itinerant distillers an...

Michel Arnould Verzenay Brut Rosé Champagne
Top Pick!
This rosé bottling is 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir. The wine is made by assembling multiple vintages and red Coteaux Champenoises sourced from old vines. This lovely Rosé Champagne offers hints of raspberry, strawberry and red currant. It is refined on the palate where the berry notes unfurl into subtle notes of grenadine.
Price: $36.99

2014 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a solid step up over the Anderson Valley release and has more tension, elegance and precision. Offering up classic notes of strawberries, spice, black cherries and a touch of sous bois, it has medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity of fruit and integrated acidity. Give bottles a year or two and drink through 2026. While the majority of 2014s are charming and supple, that’s certainly not the case with these latest releases from Kevin Harvey. I found all of his 20...

2015 Qupe "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard" Edna Valley Syrah (Previously $35) (Previously $35)
Top Pick!
Qupé's flagship "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard" is right around the corner from Alban and produces brilliant wines that balance Old World elegance with Central Coast flair.
Price: $19.95

Monica Larner writes: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande."
Price: $34.99

93 points Wine Spectator: "Perfumed, this red features ripe black cherry, blackberry, black currant, violet, iron, loamy earth and sanguine aromas and flavors. More approachable than its peers at this stage, with fine structure, if a little less density. Long finish. Drink now through 2032. (BS)" (07/2019)

2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "Terrific intensity of dark berries, almost peppery blackcurrants and violets with attractive and integrated, spicy oak and an earthy edge. The palate has a super powerful and long, linear core with plenty of fruit flesh strapped in tight for a long and thrilling ride into the finish. A blend of 86 per cent cabernet and 14 per cent merlot. Try from 2024." (02/2019) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*2019 Wine Spectator Wine of the Year* This is so vivid as it brims with pastis-soaked plum, blackberry, black currant and blueberry past...

2015 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana
Top Pick!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine blew my mind. The 2015 Giorgio Primo is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. I'm told that the percentage of Merlot will increase in 2016 (to a majority role) but will diminish by a large margin in 2017 because that hot vintage was so difficult on early-ripening varieties. The bouquet is nothing short of explosive, with inky black fruit followed by pencil shaving, chalkboard, wet river stone and all the other beautiful mineral notes that I so closely associate with Panzano in Chianti....

Baron-Fuenté "Grande Réserve" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
90 points John Gilman: "Baron-Fuenté’s non-vintage Brut bottling is composed of a blend of sixty percent Pinot Meunier, thirty percent chardonnay and ten percent Pinot Noir, with all the vins clairs all fermented in stainless steel. It is a full malo wine and is aged three years sur latte, being finished with a dosage of nine grams per liter. I am not sure if this is the same release I reported on last year or a new cuvée, but the wine is showing very well. The bouquet offers up a fine constellation of white peach, apple, lovely Meunier floral tones, a t...

92 points Wine Spectator: "A rich and smoky base note of roasted nut supports flavors of lemon meringue pie, quince paste, toasted coconut and cumin, and spun honey. There's lovely creamy texture here, with finely meshed acidity throughout. (AN)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: Rated "Extraordinary" by the Underground Wine Letter, which states: "This is a gorgeous Champagne with richness, depth and complexity." Bonville's stunningly rich, creamy Blanc de Blancs has the minerality and zing that one would expect from an all-Chardonnay Champagne. The Bonvilles were ...

95 points Decanter: "Floral, citrus and apple nose. The palate is packed with stone fruit flavours and kept fresh with lemony acidity and a persistent, salty-nutty finish. Delicious and very classic. (DWWA 2019)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: The Choblet family established their vineyards in 1945 in what would become the Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu appellation. Now three generations deep, brothers Herve and Nicolas Choblet work together from vine to bottle to make some of the most interesting and dynamic Muscadets in the region. The vines are planted on a mix o...

2014 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild herb, perfumed berry and pressed rose aromas lift out of the glass along with a whiff of eucalyptus. Smooth, delicious and balanced, the lithe palate has great tension, doling out juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and baking spice backed up by vibrant acidity. Silky tannins give it extraordinary elegance and linear structure. It won't take years to come around but it also boasts good midterm aging potential. *Editors' Choice* (KO)" (02/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like most producers in ...

2015 Skylark "Red Belly" North Coast Rhône Blend (Previously $20) (Previously $20)
Top Pick!
90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another great value is the 2015 Skylark Red Belly, a deliciously gulpable blend of 42% Carignan, 30% Grenache, and 28% Syrah brought up in neutral barrels. It has loads of mulled cherries, red currants, leather, and peppery herb aromatics, medium body, a forward, supple, elegant texture, and a great finish, all making for a seriously easy quaffing, high quality red worth drinking." (11/2018) K&L Notes: Skylark is a micro-small winery operation spearheaded by two wine industry veterans cum San Francisco taste makers: John Lancast...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This explosive, ripe wine is part of a trilogy that the producer has made from three of the greatest villages in Champagne. This tense, mineral-driven wine is rich with white fruits. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced from three specific vineyards in Avize (Les Chapelles, Les Avats and Les Maladries), the 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Avize is a bright colored Côte des Blancs with a terrific deep and aromatic bouquet of smooth chalk, juicy tropical fruit and lemon notes....

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Called Cuvée 7 because it is aged for seven years after bottling and before disgorgement, this wine is beautifully mature. It has a tight texture that is rich. The fruit is relaxing into almond and yeast flavors, with some toast as well as considerable minerality. (RV)" (08/2018) 91 points James Suckling: "Lovely bead of bubbles with a creamy texture and pie crust, toasted bread and ripe apples that follow through to a medium to full body. Flavorful finish."

2018 Domaine Petroni Corse Blanc (Corsica)
Top Pick!
92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More tart citrus, passion fruits, and pineapple notes emerge from the medium-bodied 2018 Domaine Petroni (100% Vermentino), which offers racy acidity, terrific balance, and a great finish. It’s another smoking good white from this estate that shines for its purity, balance, and length. I love it." (07/2019) Wine Spectator: "Yellow apple, fennel and white peach flavors form the mix here. Gently buttered, with a rounded feel, but maintains a fresh edge throughout. (JM)" K&L Notes: A warm weather superstar, this is 100% Vermentinu...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also a mix of Niellucciu and Syrah, the 2016 Corse Domaine Petroni came from granite soils along the Mediterranean and was raised all in demi-muids. This medium to full-bodied beauty certainly makes an impression. It has sensational minerality as well as notes of black cherries, blackberries, spice, and flowers. Deep, layered, incredibly elegant, and seamless, with the tension and vibrancy common from granite soils, it should evolve for well over a decade." (07/2018) K&L Notes: Domaine Petroni is an estate on the eastern side of...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The citrus, almost golden colored 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Oger is sourced from two specific vineyards in Oger (Les Noyerots and Les Rumigny) that were harvested on September 15th, exactly a week earlier than the corresponding three plots for Pur Avize. The wine displays a deep, rich, tropical yet more aristocratic and mineral bouquet of intense brioche and nougat aromas as well as ethereal, refreshing lemon and limestone notes. Full-bodied, round, rich and complex on the palate, this is a mouth-filling...

2007 Glenlivet 12 Year Old "Signatory Unchillfiltered Collection" 1st Fill Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
For those who've been paying attention for the last decade or so, you'll know that we've had some pretty incredible success with Signatory. Likely the most requested and reminisced about product from them was a series of heavily sherried Glenlivets we bottled nearly four years ago. Those stupendous casks from this blue chip distillery were really quite rare, and have become legends. But the quality of those incredible offerings and their scarcity resulted in an absolute explosion in their price. What we once stocked for under $100, now were pushing $300....

2017 Château de L'Ou "Secret de Schistes" Côtes Catalanes
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the gems in the lineup is the 2017 Cotes Catalanes Secret De Schistes which is all Syrah from the higher elevation sites of schist soils. Aged 17 months in new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of crème de cassis, blue fruits, classy oak, and graphite that opens up with time in the glass. Possessing full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and again, this voluptuous, weightless texture, it’s a brilliant wine that will keep for over a decade. This is one of those wines that blends elegance and richness brilliantly. Drink thro...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The silky 2016 Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise. Cherries, garrigue and leather notes all come together in this medium to full-bodied but gentle, elegant wine. It's smooth from start to finish, with fine-grained tannins and hints of thyme that emerge on the finish. (JC)" (11/2018) Wine Spectator: "Gently mulled cherry and plum fruit glides through, with hints of warm fruitcake and melted red licorice. Offers a fruit-filled, modestly juicy finish. Drink now. (JM)" (11...

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is lovely complexity to the distinctly yeasty nose that combines high-toned green apple, pear, white flowers and gentle citrus nuances. The clean and sleek flavors are supported by a crisply firm but fine mousse where the finish is medium dry and lingering. It's not all that often that I suggest that readers cellar NV Brut but this is an example that absolutely cries out for it. I suspect that the texture will materially change for the better (i.e. become creamier) and better depth will be in the offing as well...

2017 Antech "Cuvée Eugenie" Cremant de Limoux
Top Pick!
From the importer: "Limoux is the world's original birthplace of sparkling wine, with the first bubbles produced here in the year 1544, some 150 years before Dom Perignon began making sparkling wine in Champagne. Only 24 wineries exist in Limoux and Antech (pronounced "An-tesh") is by far the region's most celebrated producer, known for the purity and elegance of the sparkling wines they produce. The estate was originally planted to 150 acres six generations ago, and 24 acres have been added over the years. In addition to their estate grapes, for the la...
