Launois "Cuvée Réservée" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
This 100% estate grown, Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is made entirely with old Chardonnay selections from Mesnil, Cramant, and Oger. This is our number one most re-purchased Champagne, and it is often sold out! We have been working with Champagne Launois, located in the grand cru of Mesnil, for more than 16 years now, and they are our number one seller, for good reason.

Egrot Brut Champagne (2008)
Top Pick!
Undoubtedly, this is the best find from my June 2021 trip to Champagne. The Egrot family ran out of non-vintage brut, and decided to disgorge their 2008 vintage which they had been saving- and label it as brut! This is a deal that comes along only rarely- a 100% Ay Grand Cru masterpeice of grower Champagne, aged for more than 12 years on the lees and composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay. This bone dry, focussed, chalky wine is fabulous now for those who are looking for a powerful, nutty, clean brioche style of Champagne, and it should age for as...

2002 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne (Previously $180) (Previously $180)
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Very impressive depth and detail here. The freshness is staggering. Citrus and grilled-hazelnut aromas lead to a palate that has a very concentrated, slightly creamy and taut feel. Super long and dense with lemon curd, white peaches and a toasty build to the finish. Superb!" (07/2018) 98 points Decanter: "Subtle nose of lemon-spiked raw pastry and a harmonious palate of incredible finesse. Scented and perfumed notes of lemon balm, shortbread and lemon zest fill the mind and senses. Utter elegance and happiness follows. (AK)" ...

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 ...

Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne
Top Pick!
Our best deal in pink bubbles! Fans of Billecart-Salmon take note: this is an elegant, dry style that is made entirely from estate-grown fruit in Brouillet. This Champagne is a blend of half and half Pinot Noir and Meunier. The color comes from 12% Meunier that is vinified red, from an old-vine plot that gets quite ripe. It is a very pretty tarnished pink color and has a lazy bead from over five years of aging on the lees. Our current selection has a 2012 base wine. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid-palate, but still finishes snappy an...

Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
All Champagne producers should be judged on their entry-level wine, and Olivier's is as good as they get. This is always the fastest non-vintage Champagne to sell out—so get it while we have it! The nose is effusive, with baguette, white flowers, and a nice salinity, while the flavors have a fine balance of white fruit, cream, and precise Avize chalk. Don't miss this. The Underground Wine Letter also rates this wine Outstanding Plus: "This is a terrific Champagne with great balance, flavor, and style, and it is a real value. Pale yellow in color, the win...

2008 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While still young, this Champagne has all the makings of greatness. Produced from grand cru vineyards, it already balances ripe white fruits with a firm structure that will age well. It’s relatively dry and has plenty of acidity, which will also aid in the longevity. *Top Cellar Selections 2019* (RV)" (12/2019) 95 points James Suckling: "This is a solid and very dense Champagne with a phenolic and rich texture. Layers of cooked apples and light lemon rind. Brioche and light pie-crust in the aftertaste. Fresh and relatively d...

Ariston Aspasie "Réserve" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
Don't let the name change fool you, this is the same great Champagne that used to be called "Carte Blanche". The Ariston Aspasie reserve is made of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 30% Meunier. A balanced cuvée in every way, this Champagne is clean and powerful at once. It has a natural toasty quality from spending five full years on the lees, and plenty of refreshing zip from the far northern location of the vineyards. No bottle in our inventory transports me to Champagne like this one. It is as true to the terroir and as pure as anything I could wis...

Egrot (formerly Elisabeth Goutorbe) Extra Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
Elisabeth Goutorbe and her husband Jean-Marie Egrot run their tiny production Champagne house almost entirely by themselves. They get very little help from their cat Maurice, but can rely on Elisabeth’s father, René Goutorbe of Champagne Henri Goutorbe for a little bit of help. Of the 15 acres they own in Ay, Louvois, Tauxieres and Mutigny, they only keep the fruit from their 2.5 best—mostly in Ay, but also a touch of Louvois Chardonnay for balance. Their home straddles the border of Ay and Mutigny, two great terroirs in the Gand Valley of the Marne, whi...

Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne

This is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from estate-grown fruit in the Western Valley of the Marne. It is a dry style, with lots of great nutty toast from three years of sur-lee ageing and good length.

Baron-Fuenté "Esprit" Brut Nature Champagne
Top Pick!
This blend of 55% Chardonnay, 25% Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir is entirely sourced from the Baron Fuenté estate in the western valley of the Marne. Because of the over six years on the lees, this zero dosage Champagne comes across as dry, but not at all austere. In fact, this wine is loaded with cream and brioche, focusing to a crisp finish. This is perfect for a wide variety of foods, but especially for shellfish! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

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)" (10/2020) 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...

Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth generation winemaker whose family established themselves in Champagne in 1750 and built their cellars in 1822. This bottling is simply great! It is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that spent an incredible eight years on the lees! It is full, rich and creamy with a lush character. The Chardonnay comes through on the finish with bright green apple fruit and a touch of minerality.

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.

This super rare bottling is made with some of the nearly extinct, native grape varieties of Champagne. It is composed of 40% Petit Meslier, 40% Arbanne, and 20% Pinot Blanc. I think it is the best of the excellent Ariston portfolio. The nose has only hints of exoticism; the overall impression is of rich cream and toast, but underneath is a hint of pine and exotic white fruit from the old varieties. On the palate the Champagne makes for a double take: it is very rich and textural, but finishes with a laser beam of chalky acidity that just goes on and on. ...

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.

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...

This Champagne is composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. All of the fruit is estate grown from the Ariston's vineyards in Brouillet … La Vallée Brouillet might be my very favorite place in all of Champagne. I love the rolling landscape, the mix of mustard, vineyard and colza fields. But most of all I love the quiet peace of this secluded northwestern part of the region. This is the real countryside of Champagne! This area is known for the incredible diversity of fossilized shellfish that can be found in the fields here. The Ariston fami...

Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
The Ariston's vineyards are vastly different than those of the other blanc de blancs producers that we carry. The steeper slopes, less chalk and more fossils in the soil of Brouillet make for a rich, creamy style of Chardonnay Champagne that will appeal to just about anyone. This is one of my favorite toasting Champagnes. All of the flavors are up-front; it is open-knit and fun. It is a perfect way to start a party. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

This is one of the extremely rare examples of a pure Chardonnay Champagne from the Aube department. It comes from one plot, at the highest elevation in the village of Les Riceys, all on Kimmeridgian clay soil, the same as in Chablis. In fact, this plot is less than three miles from the boarder with Burgundy, and over its long history belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy as often as to the Comtes of Champagne! Luckily for us, it is on the Champagne side of the line now, and the 2013 harvest has provided us with a toasty Champagne full of clean earth (like in...

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.

Paul Vincent Ariston says that his 25-year-old vines reflect the vintage, but the Prestige, made from vines averaging 60 years, reflect his terroir. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Meunier. This was one of the best bottles from my 2010 trip, and we drank two just to make sure! It has fantastic Brouillet black cherry power, and finishes very dry and super long. It is a powerhouse in the style of a vintage Bollinger, but with even more soul!

Jean-Jacques Lamoureux "Réserve" Brut Champagne

This is one of the most exciting small-estate Champagnes that we have found recently. It is composed of 100% Pinot Noir with a 2011 base wine blended with 2009 and 2010 vintage, 50% of which is reserve stocks. This is a clean style of Pinot Noir with fine acidity and a small bead. Frothy and just plain lovely! Watch the bubbles go on and on and on when it is in the glass. Initially, there are baked apple flavors followed a mid-palate of grapefuit and nectarine leading to a creamy finish. A very small 15,000 bottle production. Winemaker Vivien Lamoureux i...

La Petite Montagne, the small mountain of Reims, makes for harder bike riding than the “big” one. It is relentlessly hilly, devoid of even the smallest of flat areas. This little area to the west of the road between Reims and Epernay not only has steep slopes; it also has quite chalky soils, and is home to some of the best Premier Cru vineyards in Champagne. It is here, in Villers-Aux-Noeuds, that Olivier Langlais farms his fifteen acres of organic vineyards. Olivier has incredible dedication to biodynamics, and even disgorges his wine according to the m...

We only received seven and a half cases of the 2013. This is exclusively old vine Pinot Noir (over 60 years) from the best parcel in Patrick's holdings and only one press load. This is vinous, powerful, black fruited Champagne in the mold of the Vieilles Vignes Françaises from Bollinger. Because of the north facing exposure, the wine retains its finesse even at the very high level of concentration that it has. Even the fullest cellar should be rearranged for a little of this. Again, patience is needed, but will be greatly rewarded! (Gary Westby, K&L Cham...

This rosé is 100% Pinot Noir, and all of the skins are kept in contact with all of the juice for about two days for maximum color and flavor. This is full bodied rosé, perfect for a first course of smoked salmon, or even a main course of the same fish grilled. If you are patient with this wine, and let it warm up a little bit after opening it, you may be surprised at how much depth and complexity it has. Don't let the initial exuberant fruit fool you--there is a lot behind this dry rosé!

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...
