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)" ...

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...

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...
Price: $39.99

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...

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 of Verzenay. This is a great party Champagne, since it is full of flavor yet refreshing and moreish. The hazelnut Pinot character, so unique to the village of Verzenay, is pronounced in this wine, and many good tasters have mistaken it for barrel fermentation (it is...

Antech Brut Nature Blanquette de Limoux
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...

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)
Price: $34.99

This rosé bottling is 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir from Verzenay, the northernmost of all the Grand Crus in this northernmost of French wine regions. The whole village faces north, the wrong way, away from the sun, and yet miraculously ripens Pinot Noir, the most difficult Champagne variety to ripen perfectly. Some say it's because of a meteor that in prehistoric times hit the area that is now the village, creating the faux de Verzenay, a forest where the trees bend and fold in on themselves like a dark wood in The Lord of the Rings. The wine is made by ass...

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.
Price: $29.99

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 ...

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.

Wine Enthusiast: "With its high proportion of Meunier, this Champagne is a ripe generous wine that has rich pear and kiwi flavors that are full and tangy. (RV)" (12/2020) K&L Notes: This Champagne is composed of 70% Pinot Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir and is aged three and a half years on the lees. The exotic, pure Meunier fruit in this Champagne marries with the creamy, delicately toasty aromas and flavors. The wine has no trace of sherry-like oxidation or bruised apple malic character that Meunier-based Champagnes sometimes have. On the contrary, this i...

Baron-Fuenté "Grande Réserve" Brut Champagne

90 points James Suckling: "A dense and fruity wine with cooked-apple and lemon flavors. A hint of biscuit. Creamy texture. Subtle finish. " (07/2019) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Tart and fresh, with notes of sage and thyme, this is a simple Champagne with a light, airy feel. Its scents of almond and bread dough connect at the intersection of limestone, lees and dosage. " (12/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "The wine, while it has a high dosage, is balanced with ripe white fruits showing well against a backdrop of ripe acidity. (RV) " (12/2020) Wine Spectator...
Price: $24.99

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. ...
Price: $99.99

This small, all estate-grown Champagne is sourced from only one vineyard, the Clos Boursault, an ancient walled vineyard just west of Epernay on the Marne. It is composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 45% Meunier, and 10% Chardonnay, and given four years of ageing on the lees. It benefits from an incredible 50% reserves. This is very brut at just 6g/L of dosage but is not at all austere. I love this wine for its easy style, great toasted baguette aromas and nut bread and savory Pinot flavors. The finish is long, and the wine is amazing in its completeness. This is ...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the warmer Aube vineyards in the south of Champagne, this wine is rich and full of creamy fruit.

2018 Antech "Cuvée Eugenie" Brut Crémant de Limoux

Jancis Robinson: "Smells like elderflower-scented cream. Pretty and girlish. It makes me think of the lacy clouds of Queen Anne's Lace growing along the roadsides and hedgerows in May. Ripe white peaches. Touch of shortbread bringing subtle autolytic complexity. Soft but well structured. And there are hidden depths to this wine! Françoise Antech suggested pairing it with a ceviche prawn, avocado and grapefruit salad, which I was a bit dubious about, thinking that the wine would not hold up to the strong, sweet-citrus acidity of the grapefruit, let alone ...

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...

2011 Baron-Fuenté "Grand Millesime" Brut Champagne

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.

The Antech "Emotion" is a little something different: a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Mauzac and Pinot Noir from the AOC Crémant de Limoux in the Languedoc region of southern France. Since the 2012 vintage it has been a huge hit with our staff; now it is back, to make our evenings and dinner parties sparkle just that much more.

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...

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! Like almost all Champagne, this wine has relatively low alcohol, 12%. (Gary Westby, K&L Cha...

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...

Outstanding sparkling wine from the Languedoc? Absolutely and resoundingly, yes! There may be those who would scoff at the price of this wine, and claim that a sparkling wine set so low could never be worth any serious consideration. Well, we're happy to confidently report a counter-claim: those scoffers are WRONG.
