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...

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 all the minerality and zing one would expect from an all-Chardonnay Champagne. The Bonvilles were g...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy in texture, with mouthwatering acidity enlivening rich notes of bread dough, black currant, lemon curd, pastry cream and blanched almonds. Shows fine balance and length. (AN)" (12/2012) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "As with other Champagnes in the producer's range, this blends three vintages, giving it extra richness and depth of fruit flavor. Its toasty edge suggests it has also been aged in bottle. Attractive and ripe, it's ready to drink. (RV)" (06/2017) 90 points James Suckling: "A tangy and fruity Champagne with ...

2014 Louise Brison Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fermented and aged in wood, this Champagne is still young but is showing fine potential. The wine's acidity gives it a crisp texture and brings out the citrus and green-apple flavors along with the nervy edge. It will certainly age, so wait to drink until 2022. (RV)" (12/2020) K&L Notes: This Champagne was made in the most expensive way possible. The entire Brison estate is organic, and the wine is entirely barrel fermented. No detail is forgotten in making the vintage wines here, as the owner, Delphine Brulez, has a diploma...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the warmer Aube vineyards in the south of Champagne, this wine is rich and full of creamy fruit. There's a touch of chalky minerality to its texture, giving it a tight edge. Aged in bottle to bring out a toasty aftertaste, it's ready to drink now. (RV)" (06/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy in texture, with mouthwatering acidity enlivening rich notes of bread dough, black currant, lemon curd, pastry cream and blanched almonds.

2011 Baron-Fuenté "Grand Millesime" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
91 points James Suckling: "Lemons, figs, spiced pears, praline and toast on the nose. Medium-bodied with sharp acidity and soft bubbles. Mineral, linear character. Dry." (09/2021) K&L Notes: This all estate grown gem from Baron Fuente is composed of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier, and 15% Pinot Noir from around Charly-sur-Marne. This drinks great right now because of the long ageing that the team at Baron Fuente have lavished on it, but will also keep great in good storage over the medium term.

Laurent-Perrier "La Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
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." (07/2019) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The nonvintage cuvée from this producer is definitely on the dry side. Like many Champagnes in the range, it has benefited from long aging before release, giving a wine that has richness as well as great fruits, hints of maturity coming through. (RV)" (12/2020) ...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made from a blend of vintages from 2007 to 2015, this Champagne shows maturity as well as rich red apple and lemon-zest flavors. With its strong mineral edge, the wine is textured and now ready to drink. (RV)" (06/2020) K&L Notes: The Louis Victor from Coutelas is made in the solera style, from one large barrel containing a perpetual blend. Coutelas lists this as composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Meunier and Pinot Noir, but in fact, it is refreshed with 1/4 of the best wine vinified in a given year, while another 1/4 is taken...

Mouthwatering acidity and accents of grated ginger and lemon zest hold sway on the finish. Elegant. (AN)" (11/2015) 90 points John Gilman: "The Nicolas Maillart non-vintage Brut Rosé is composed of a fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, with eight percent of the pinot being still red wine. It is from the base year of 2014 and was finished with a dosage of seven grams per liter, after its disgorgement in N...

91 points Vinous: "Offering up aromas of toasted bread, citrus oil, dried white flowers and beeswax, the NV Brut Heres is medium-bodied, pillowy and elegantly textural, with lively acids and a pearly mousse. Seamless and understated, it saw tirage in April 2015 and was disgorged with six grams per liter dosage. (WK)" (03/2021) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Based in the Marne Valley, this producer has crafted a Champagne that brings out the richness of Pinot Noir coupled with the fruitiness of Meunier.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by fully 40% old reserve wines, the new release of Charles Heidsieck's NV Brut Réserve was disgorged earlier this year. It's showing very well, opening up in the glass with notes of green apple, dried white flowers, pear, candied peel and walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack and a racier, tighter-knit core than either the 2012- or 2010-base renditions, displaying good concentration and underlying richness. This ...

92 points Wine Spectator: "This bright and zesty Champagne is lightly juicy and appealing, offering flavors of Honeycrisp apple, ripe white cherry, biscuit and pickled ginger. Balanced and lacy in texture, with a lingering, spiced finish. (AN)" (11/2017) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Pretty notes of toasted bread, yeast, orange peel and white peach introduce rich, full-bodied and borderline creamy flavors that are shaped by a relatively soft effervescence before terminating in an agreeably dry, clean and focused finale. This is drier than the 7...

91 points John Gilman: "The current release of Taittinger’s non-vintage Brut 'la Française' is comprised of a cépages of forty percent chardonnay, thirty-five percent pinot noir and twenty-five percent pinot meunier. It is aged between three and four years sur latte prior to disgorgement, so I suspect that this is from the base year of 2015. The wine offers up a bright and classy bouquet of apple, lemon, chalky soil tones, bread dough and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a good core, eleg...

95 points Wine & Spirits: "In modern Champagne, any color that might bleed from the skins into the juice is usually filtered out, so the wine is clear. In this traditional style, Delphine Vesselle allows the ripe Pinot Noir grapes from her vineyards in Bouzy to bleed color from their skins, and doesn’t filter it out, hoping to preserve what she describes as the soul of Pinot Noir. Everyone on our panel was struck by this wine’s beauty, as its delicate touch seemed to connect with every scent and taste receptor at once. Auction-consultant Craig Ganzer com...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A high (60%) amount of older Reserve Champagne has gone into this mature blend. It offers richness and a ripe structure that brings out the rounded white fruits. (RV)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: This blend of 60% Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, and 10% Chardonnay comes from exclusively estate-grown fruit in the premier crus of Chigny-les-Roses, Sacy, Rilly-la-Montagne, and Ludes. It's a fantastic aperitif and has surprising richness and concentration at the price.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though it’s light straw in the glass, with hardly any color, the flavor is robust and complex. Scented with perky black pepper and spice, the palate echoes the pepper up front, followed by a fleeting meaty umami note midpalate and a long finish that boasts sparks of ginger and cayenne. Aged eight months." (05/2015) K&L Notes: Now available in 750ml! Tapatio's excellent Reposado is one of the highlands finest Tequilas.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Combining fruitiness with leesy complexity and an elegant texture, this luxurious wine gives the taste buds plenty to explore, from a doughy, lemony aroma to intricate flavors of white peach, lemon zest, Pippin apple and cookie dough. A brisk but rich bead of bubbles is satisfying and refreshing at the same time. *Editors’ Choice* (JG)" (11/2021) K&L Notes: For decades, Schramsberg has been arguably America's best producer of sparkling wines. Sourcing fruit from multiple sites throughout California, they have achieved ...

92 points Decanter: "50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier from 100 villages in all, and including 30% reserves from 10 vintages back to 1995; a small proportion now being produced with malolactic. Black Label remains the confident barometer of Lanson, and Hervé Dantan’s first blend is a class act, a resounding statement of his talent in preserving the style and integrity of the house while meticulously polishing the edges. It’s a very important cuvée in the grand scheme of Champagne: one of the best and most consistent of the bargain set. (TS)"...

93 points John Gilman: "The new release of Première Cuvée was disgorged in April of 2017 and hails from the base year of 2013. It was finished with a dosage of five grams per liter and offers p a lovely, still quite youthful bouquet of pear, apple, brioche a complex base of chalky soil tones and a nice touch of spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, bright acids and a long, focused and vibrant finish. This will be approachable early on, but as the notes...

91 points Decanter: "Lifted reductive flintiness and whiff of smoulder on the nose. Heady notes of dried lemon peel on the palate with a freshness and phenolic edge, seems young but has complexity of cellaring. (Panel tasting)" (12/2020) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A well-balanced wine, this is poised between fresh fruits and a tangy texture. The dosage is just right, emphasizing the minerality of the wine while keeping a soft aftertaste. (RV)" (12/2018)

(AN)" (11/2017) 90 points John Gilman: "As I noted in the past, the Drappier Brut Rosé is one hundred percent pinot noir from the estate’s own Aube vineyards and is produced by the saignée method, so that its lovely cherry color is from skin contact, rather than by adding a bit of still red wine to the blend. The cuvée is aged two and a ha...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " Blending 53% Pinot Noir, 44% Chardonnay and 3% Pinot Gris into a cohesive whole, this sparkler is aged nearly four years.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Delicious but fiery, this nine-year-old small-batch Bourbon offers deep toffee aromatics and bold flavor. On the palate, look for relatively dry flavors: leather, cedar, dried orange peel. A splash of water softens the profile to bring out more vanilla, honey, even a touch of chocolate.

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Finding a place at the lighter end of the Rosé spectrum and, in fact, a wine that could easily pass for a Blanc de Noirs, this lightly yeasty version fixes on energetic, slightly juicy, young fruit as its main motif. It is briskly balanced, but its ample acidity enlivens without ever once seeming sharp, and it is wholly free of the astringency that marks its more vinous mates. *Two Stars*" (11/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "A lovely, flavorful rosé with sliced peaches and strawberries.
