2012 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points Decanter: "What a magnificent bouquet for this Dom Pérignon 2012! Pastry, a hint of smoke and autolytic notes provide a compelling counterpart to eager yet elegant aromas of citrus (lime, tangerine and kumquat) joined by those of fresh fruit, herbs, liquorice, and menthol. There is even a refreshing note of ivy. The palate is tense, vibrant, and very fresh despite its impressive density, which meets its match with an unending finish. This 2012 incarnates the very essence of Dom Pérignon with such a concentrated degree of intensity, along with a...

2007 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Louis" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (Previously $170) (Previously $170)
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Disgorged in October 2018 with seven grams per liter dosage, the 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis Salmon derives from the villages of Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger, and half of the vins clairs that went into the blend were vinified in older barrels. It's still tightly wound, even after over a year on cork, unfurling in the glass with a delicate bouquet of crisp yellow apple, Meyer lemon, blanched almonds, elderflower and crushed chalk. Medium to full-bodied, deep and searingly intense, it's seamless ...

2008 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Louis" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Complex and rich nose of dried apricot, lemon pith, dried pineapple, praline, hazelnut, white cocoa, chalk and nutmeg. Creamy and delicious fruit here, yet it’s mineral and refined with very fine, precise bubbles. Structured, with a sharp, persistent backbone of acidity. Long and very focused." (05/2022) K&L Notes: An oak-aged expression from this historic house, from some of the best parcels in the Côte des Blancs. From the winery: "This cuvée was named in tribute to Louis, Elisabeth Salmon’s brother, who was passionate abou...

2014 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
New!
98 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cristal is another in a long line of gorgeous wines from Roederer and long-time Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. A dazzling, vibrant Champagne, the 2014 impresses with a stunning combination of fruit density and linear energy that brings to mind a hypothetical blend of 2012 and 2008. At times, the bubbles feel totally wrapped up in waves of creamy, resonant fruit to the point the mousse is barely perceptible, especially with aeration. The flavors are bright and finely sculpted, leaning very much into the citrus, floral a...

Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle" Iteration #24 Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "A fantastic prestigious cuvée this year with a solid core of fruit that makes it so serious and structured. Like a grand cru Burgundy. Full body. Lightly chewy. Phenolic tension gives it form and beauty. This is the first year to use numbers. 55% chardonnay and 45% pinot noir. 2004, 2002 and 1999." (09/2019) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A grand wine, this is the 24th blend of Grand Siécle, the producer's top cuvée. With wonderful toastiness, the Champagne from grand cru vineyards is at a perfect moment of maturity. Almonds min...

2013 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "This is quite chalky with firm phenolics that frame the wine beautifully. It’s medium-to full-bodied with strawberries and earth. Dense, linear and intense. Hints of brioche and pie crust at the end. Very structured and gorgeous. Salty and lightly chewy. One third of the base wines fermented and aged in oak. Connoisseur Champagne. From organic vineyards of the Roederer domains. Smaller production than normal. Seven years on the lees. Give it two or three years to open." (07/2021) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I've...

Krug "Grande Cuvée" 169ème Édition Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "This is a layered Champagne with very fine tannins and super beautiful texture and length. Full-bodied with intensity and length. Powerful, austere and tight. Really long and made for the cellar. Vivid. " (11/2021) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based on the 2013 vintage and complemented by some 40% reserve wines dating back to 2000, Krug's newly released NV Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is showing very nicely, unfurling in the glass with notes of citrus oil, buttered toast, dried apricot, warm biscuits and marmalade...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a single parcel in Urville, the 2008 Brut Grande Sendrée is exceptional, opening in the glass with incipiently rich aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, brioche, marzipan and wheat toast that seems to be on the cusp of acquiring more nutty complexity. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and tight-knit, with superb concentration and structural tension, built around racy acids and concluding with an attractively chalky finish. In keeping with the vintage, this is quite a tensile, reserved G...

91 points James Suckling: "Plenty of ripe strawberries and wild raspberries on the nose here. Really attractive and vibrant in the mouth with fresh wild strawberries. It also shows a fleshy, fresh-fruit texture." (09/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A well-knit Champagne with a citrusy, orange peel overtone and a lithe backbone of acidity enlivening flavors of cherry and apricot fruit, grated ginger, pastry and minerally saline. Creamy finish. (AN)" (12/2020) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The cuvée from this great Champagne producer is dry, fruity with...

92 points James Suckling: "Some oyster shell, berry biscuits, fresh strawberries and gently toasty brioche here. Lots to like. The palate is plump and flavorsome with plenty of berries and citrus intertwined. Good depth here. Grapefruit finish. Drink now. " (07/2018) 90 points Decanter: "Veuve's 'yellow label' non-vintage Champagne is perhaps the region's most recognisable. It's a blend of around 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, from up to 60 different crus. The doughy base shows a hint of creaminess, layered with light and fresh f...

Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle" Iteration #25 Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
99 points James Suckling: "Incredible aromas of apple skin, pie crust, praline and flowers. So young in the nose. Full-bodied with super-fine tannins. It’s tight and refined, yet structured and intense. Really long and beautiful. Still shy. Wonderful finish. 12 years on its lees before disgorging. " (10/2021) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Laurent-Perrier's imminently released NV Brut Grand Siècle #25 is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of pear, crisp stone fruit and mandarin mingled with hints ...

2008 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points Wine Spectator: "Like a stallion out of the gate, this shows an initial explosion of power, in the form of mouthwatering flavors and fine texture, before quickly settling into an elegant gait. The racy acidity is seamlessly knit, buoying the lacy mousse and flavors of cassis, toasted brioche and tangerine, with accents of candied ginger, hazelnut and fleur de sel lingering on the long, creamy finish. (AN)" (12/2020) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A gorgeous, yet tight, backward vintage for this cuvée, the 2008 Champagne Rare is based on 70% Chardonn...
Price: $179.99

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After the tightly coiled, hyper-concentrated 2008, Taittinger's 2011 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne represents a more immediate, charming rendition of this cuvée. Bursting from the glass with aromas of orchard and stone fruit mingled with notions of pastry cream, blanched almonds and mandarin, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and fleshy, with a soft and enveloping profile, lively acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. Readers might think of the 2011 as a somewhat less reductive and less intense stylisti...

2013 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Rosé Champagne
Top Pick!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for wine-of-the-vintage honors in Champagne, Roederer's 2013 Cristal Rosé is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with notes of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, red berries, stone fruit, freshly baked bread and tangerine oil. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, the vintage's bright girdling acids are amply cloaked in exuberant, expressive and notably concentrated fruit; so while this Cristal is as tensile and age-worthy as one would expect, it's also impressively fleshy and generous g...

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This single vineyard, one of the steepest in Champagne, produces fabulous wines. Richness restrained by the minerality from the terroir is balanced by the structured Pinot Noir fruits that bring touches of toast, spice and white fruits. Drink through 2025 at least. (RV) 12/2021" (12/2021) 97 points James Suckling: "Aromas of bread dough, mandarin, strawberry, raspberry and light dry earth follow through to a full body with lightly candied fruit, phenolic tension and a clear, bright finish. Mineral. Pure. Dry and layered at t...

95 points James Suckling: "For an 8-year-old Champagne this is extremely vibrant, the red-fruit character from the Pinot Noir grape rather in the background. Quite a strict style with discreet lees creaminess. However the ripeness and power means that it isn’t austere. Feels bone-dry at the powerful, chalky finish. 100% Pinot Noir, 100% barrel-fermented and 100% matured under cork. " (11/2021) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "This Pinot Noir Champagne is almost entirely grown in grand-cru villages, its nearly raw limestone power putting the savor of the eart...

90 points Decanter: "This extra brut blend is made from equal amounts of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a dosage of 4g/l. There is no malolactic fermentation. It has a lovely fresh yet buttery nose redolent of white fruits. It's a delicate, light and upright Champagne that seems ideal as an aperitif thanks to its perfect balance and zesty style (YC)."

2012 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame - Yayoi Kusama Edition" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "A generous golden colour betrays the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend; this theme thereafter maintained by aromatics of fig, wild strawberries and Mirabelle plums; behind that, jasmine, red apples and a distant whiff of woodsmoke. Engaging already, in other words. One’s impressions are confirmed and amplified on the palate, with the aspiration voiced by both chef de caves Dominique and Didier, to allow the ‘cooler’ Pinot Noir sites full rein. This is eloquently evidenced by a subtle and deftly textured structure, the primary frui...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This great rosé combines texture with bright fruit and a bit of age. It is poised between a ripe dosage and a crisp texture, with red fruits and toastiness marking the flavors. It is a fine bottling to enjoy now. (RV)" (12/2020) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Fragrant wafts of smoke and spice accent the steeped raspberry and mandarin orange peel flavors of this tightly meshed rosé Champagne, which is backed by a vivid spine of mouthwatering acidity and is silky on the palate, with hints of dried herb, licorice and toasted almond...

94 points Vinous: "The 2006 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Cuvée Nicole VV emerges from old vines in Les Chétillons, one of the most renowned lieu-dits in Mesnil. More of a wine than a Champagne, the VV possesses notable textural richness and gravitas, both of which build with a bit of time in the glass. This is a terrific choice for readers who enjoy Champagnes with the complexity that develops in bottle over time. Disgorged: March, 2021. (AG)" (11/2021) K&L Notes: Antonio Galloni writes for Vinous: "Moncuit is one of those growers I never hear much about,...

98 points James Suckling: "An amazing 2008 rosé Champagne that has all the structure and aromatic complexity - sushi ginger, oolong tea and caramelized mandarin orange - we associate with this vintage, but also has more charm than most. On the palate, this has stunning concentration, yet is diamond bright. The interplay of creaminess, fine tannins and mineral acidity builds and builds at the breathtaking finish. The color comes from about 7% pinot noir red wine, partly from the little-known Les Riceys in the far south of Champagne. Drink or hold. " (11/2...

93 points James Suckling: "The brioche and cooked-apple and cream character really comes through here. Full-bodied and round with fine bubbles. Flavorful and intense. Vivid, bread-dough finish. This is four years on lees. 55% chardonnay and the rest pinot." (09/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The latest rendition of Laurent-Perrier's NV Brut is showing nicely, wafting from the glass with scents of almond paste, iodine, white peach, warm biscuits and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with an elegant, lively prof...

94 points Decanter: "Supremely attractive nose of lemon, lime, dry stone fruits, Christmas cake, nutmeg, vanilla and almond. Delicate texture on the palate with a very long finish. (SF)" (09/2021) 94 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of dried citrus fruit, such as orange and peach with pie crust. Some brioche. White pepper. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Very deep and beautiful. Needs time to come together, but already a beauty." (07/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Pretty floral and spice notes on the nose lead to ripe golden apple, slivered a...

96 points Wine Spectator: "A mouthwatering rosé that wraps a racy spine of acidity in the plushly creamy, cashmere-like mousse, offering a fine frame for the rich and finely meshed range of flavors, with baked raspberry, passion fruit and Mandarin orange peel fruit accented by chopped hazelnut, fleur de sel, candied ginger and lime blossom notes that echo for days on the vivid finish.

2002 Philipponnat "Clos de Goisses" Extra-Brut Champagne (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points John Gilman: "These most recent two bottles of the 2002 Clos des Goisses were both magnificent. The wine is starting to really drink with great style at age twelve, and though it remains early days in the evolution of this wine, it is really already getting irresistible. The deep, pure and wide open bouquet shows quite a bit of the exotica that defines this wine at full maturity, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of ripe pears, musky floral tones, kaleidoscopic minerality, brioche and plenty of smokiness in the upper register. On the pala...

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "This famed Champagne comes from one of the steepest vineyards in the whole region, facing across the Marne river. With a blend of 71% Pinot Noir and 29% Chardonnay, the densely textured wine shows great richness, a magnificent sense of place and structure. This is a very fine wine, a monument among Champagnes, one that will age for many more years. Drink through 2030. (RV)" (10/2020) 95 points Vinous: "The 2010 Clos des Goisses shows a distinctly tropical, exotic profile that is unusual in Clos des Goisses. Candied orange p...

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Perrier Jouët "Belle Epoque" Brut Rosé Champagne (94WE, 93WS, 92VN, 91RP, 90W&S). Wine Enthusiast: "With just the right amount of toasty age, this is gorgeous. Its strawberry note is woven into its rich texture, with a flavor of fresh croissant and a final burst of acidity. It could age, but why wait? (RV)" (12/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (97JS, 96DC, 96WS, 94JG, 94VN, 93RP, 92BH, 92W&S). James Suckling: "This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Bâtard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006. " (07/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne (93WS, 92DC, 92JG, 92RP, 92W&S, 92WE).

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (97DC, 97JD, 97JS, 97WE, 96JG, 96VN, 96W&S, 95RP, 95WS). Wine Enthusiast: "The latest incarnation of this famous Champagne now comes from Roderer's own vineyards, a good portion of which are run on biodynamic lines. This still-young wine has great depth and richness, a beautiful balance between ripe fruit and crisp texture that make it alive, crisp and bright. As it matures, it will deepen and become even more intense. *Ranked #36 Top Cellar Selection of 2016* (RV)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne (94RP, 93WS, 91JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Vintage Brut offers a clear and toasty aroma on the nose. Pure, fresh, lean and delicate but complex and mineral on the palate, this is a lithe and elegant, very finessed and persistent 2008 with grip and expression. This is a complex, intense yet light and very elegant Champagne with a pure, mineral-structured and persistent finish. (SR)" (11/2017)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Soutiran "Brut Millésimé" Grand Cru Champagne (95WE, 94RP). Wine Enthusiast: "The partial wood aging has brought both complexity and rich softness to this fine blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2000 Krug Brut Champagne (98JS, 97W&S, 97WS, 96BH, 95JG, 95RP, 95VN, 94DC). James Suckling: "Very fragrant. This has developed bright, ripe red cherry fruit aromas, vanilla cream, sweet roasted almond biscuits, some marzipan, tobacco, lemon meringue and chalky minerals. The palate has an assertive core of fine acidity with more yellow fruits expressed on entry, like peaches and nectarines. Good ripeness, superfine acidity. The redder fruits build as it goes; cherries and raspberries, yellow plums to close. Full of life. Drink now or up to 20 years, it will go the distance." (07/2015)

Bid on this 6-half-bottle lot of Krug Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne (375ml) (96JS, 95DC, 95RP, 95WS, 94VN, 94W&S, 94WE). James Suckling: A very complex nose here with ripe, deep lemon and grapefruit aromas on offer plus some restrained chalky elements, biscuit, some roasting herbs, hints of pepper, then a little tobacco too. Very complex and full of fresh characters. The palate has a wealth of different fruit flavors like lemon, peach, nectarine, and plums. The finesse in terms of structure, detail and precision is staggering; sherbet-like elegance with immense concentration and power. A great Grande Cuvée. Incredibly satisfying. (07/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Salon "Le Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (100DC, 99RP, 98JS, 98VN, 97BH, 96JG). Decanter: "A warm, even hot, spring with no real change during the summer, conditions that allowed the grapes to gorge themselves on sugar while preserving good acidity. Harvest began on 23 September. Hazelnut, spices, flowers form part of the remarkable aromatic complexity of this Champagne that also has also remarkable depth of character. Perhaps the most impressive Salon of the tasting. On the palate, a sensation of flesh and opulence, but also the telltale precision and erect backbone of racy acidity, and an enthralling finish ending on a refreshing note of salinity. A truly great Salon that leaves one speechless. (YC)" (01/2020)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Perrier-Jouët "Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque" Brut Champagne (93WE). Wine Enthusiast: "Soft and round, with more exotic fruit characters.

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (98JD, 98JS, 98VN, 97DC, 96JG, 96WS, 95RP). Vinous: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is a huge, powerful Champagne and also clearly one of the wines of the vintage. This is one of the most reticent bottles I have tasted. So much so that I am thinking about holding off opening any more bottles! The 2008 has always offered a striking interplay of fruit and structure. Today, the richness of the fruit is especially evident. Readers who own the 2008 should be thrilled, but patience is a must. (AG)" (11/2021)
