Pierre Paillard "Les Parcelles" Grand Cru Extra Brut Bouzy Champagne (1.5L)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay; disgorged in October, 2013): Light gold, with a faint onion skin cast. Spicy orange zest and honeydew on the fragrant, mineral-accented nose. Dry and tightly focused, offering lively Meyer lemon and melon flavors and a deeper suggestion of nectarine. Finishes with building floral character and excellent tangy persistence, leaving bitter citrus zest and dusty mineral notes behind.

2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points James Suckling: "The best Dom since 2002. A vintage with very restrained, powerful style that has been released non-sequentially after the 2009. This has a lighter stamp of highly curated, autolytic, toasty aromas than many recent releases. Instead, this delivers super fresh and intense aromas of lemons, grapefruit and blood-orange peel. Incredible freshness here. The palate has a very smoothly delivered, berry-pastry thread with light, sweet spices, stone fruit and fine citrus fruit. This really delivers. Drink now or hold."

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Fascination" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

Alexandre Le Brun is the smallest producer that we import, or even carry from Champagne at just 7.5 acres. He only makes wine from half of the grapes he brings in, selling the rest off to negociants--his production is just one thousand cases a year total. This tiny scale allows Alex to do nearly everything himself and this hands-on approach shows through in the finished product. He only uses his own estate fruit for his Champagne, and although small, it is diverse. He farms 22 plots in eight different villages. Among these are the oldest vines that I hav ...Read More »

2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

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 ...Read More »

2010 Baron Fuente "Grand Millésimé" Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

Baron Fuente is a négociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "sur pied," meaning that they pick the grapes. This is an important distinction since many négociants buy "sur lattes" meaning in bottle! The Grand Millésimé is a blend of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir.

2006 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvee Louis" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (Previously $180) Top Pick!
2006 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvee Louis" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (Previously $180)

96 points Decanter: "Formerly called the Prestige Blanc de Blancs, this wine was renamed after the winemaker brother of Elisabeth Salmon for the bicentenary. Both Elisabeth and her husband Nicolas François already have founder's cuvées named in their honour. From 100% grand cru fruit (5% vinified in old oak), this spends 11 years on its lees with partial malolactic fermentation, and has a 6g/l dosage. Mathieu Roland-Billecart describes it as 'Meursault with bubbles', and suggests decanting it into a carafe and enjoying it throughout a meal. It's very ric ...Read More »

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a sunny and delicious 2008, with brightness infusing the wine, from its platinum color to its mineral intensity, transforming its richness and power into cool elegance. Notes of agave and cassia bark add depth, suggesting the complexity this will develop with further bottle age."

Offering incredible notes of stone fruits, brioche, white flowers, and hints of toasted nuts, this flat out awesome wine is concentrated and opulent, yet still dances on the palate with vibrant acidity and great, great finish. It's going to drink beautifully for another two to three decades. Bravo! This cuvee has only been made in 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, and ...Read More »

Michel Arnould Carte d'Or Brut Champagne Methuselah 6L

This wine is a blend of very old vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rose. This wine has been given the time that it needs for the two very different terroirs to marry, and is a spectacular example of the small scale blending of two great villages. I can't really think of anything to compare the wine to, but it is an experience not to be missed. We only received three Methuselah's of this wine. (Ga ...Read More »

It continues to build and build on the palate, to a complex, detailed conclusion." (08/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow.

2006 Bollinger Rosé Champagne

94 points Decanter: "The excellent 2006 vintage encouraged Bollinger to create a vintage rosé to reflect the quality of the grapes, especially the Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from 84% grand cru vineyards and 16% premiers cru vineyards. The wine was barrel fermented before spending over 10 years maturing in the bottle. It has a delicious Pinot character, with mulchy red fruits, accompanied by a soft Chardonnay note of delicate bruised apple and some woody breadth. It has a delicious streak of raspberry acidity, and comes across as a finessed and structure ...Read More »

With eight years aging after bottling and plenty of reserve wines in the blend, it is a mature wine that is yeasty and toasty in character. To go with that, there is great fruit from the blend that only comes from grand cru vineyards.

Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors.

1998 Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Champagne

It has weight, but has more to do with sheer pleasure. It could age, maybe over 5 years, but its nutty hints show it is ready to drink.

2004 Krug Brut Champagne

98 points Vinous: "The 2004 Clos du Mesnil captures all the pedigree of this epic Blanc des Blancs vintage. A soaring, majestic Champagne, the 2004 dazzles from the very first taste with its crystalline purity and brightness. In two tastings so far, the 2004 has been nothing less than a total showstopper. The vertical structure and pure, tightly-coiled power are the stuff dreams are made of. There is little doubt the 2004 is one of the very finest Clos du Mesnils in recent memory. Will it join the 1979, 1988 and 1996 as one of the all-time greats? Now, t ...Read More »

The bouquet is deep, pure and focused, offering up a complex constellation of apple, a touch of white peach, chalky soil tones, incipient crème patissière, delicate floral tones and a whisper of vanillin oak from the portion of the vins clairs that were raised in cask.

1985 René Collard "Cuvée Speciale" Brut Rosé Champagne

René Collard was born in 1921 in the heart of the Marne Valley. At 22, his father (who was a grower) saw his dedication to the family vineyards and gave him a little less than a hectare of vines in the village of Reuil. Since that time he has been making a tiny amount of the most unique Champagne in the world. He has slowly added to his estate, buying up choice vineyards in the villages of Reuil and Damery. His estate is just less than 7 hectares (17.5 acres) planted to about 90% Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. He has the good fortune of having an amazing ce ...Read More »

The wine is drinking splendidly today, offering up a pure and complex nose of strawberries, a touch of tangerine, chalky soil tones, rose petals, gentle spice tones and a nice topnote of smokiness.

2008 Philipponnat "Clos de Goisses" Brut Champagne (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "The 2008 Clos des Goisses is just as impressive today as it has always been. Rich, dense and explosive, the 2008 exists in three dimensions, with remarkable textural depth and vertical intensity to burn. Clos des Goisses is notoriously slow to develop. Readers who can be patient will be treated to a spectacular Champagne. The blend is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, which makes the 2008 a rare Clos des Goisses that favors Chardonnay. About 75% of the lots were fermented in oak. (AG)" (07/2018) 96 points Decanter: "Shimmering pale ...Read More »

It still has intense fruit along with the taut mineral texture that will allow the wine to age further. It is a standout Champagne from this vintage. Drink now, although this Champagne will age for many years. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (08/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This dances gracefully on the palate, with rich and expressive f ...Read More »

The wine was aged seven years sur latte prior to disgorgement. The color is quite a light salmon and the bouquet is flat out stunning, jumping from the glass in an exuberant blend of fraises du bois, white cherries, a complex base of chalky soil tones, brioche, a whisper of fresh nutmeg, dried rose petals and a bit of smokiness on the breeze in the upper reg ...Read More »

Floral notes meld into hints of apricot, chamomile, orchard fruit, vanillin and sweet spices. On the palate, the 1990 is creamy, vivid and super-expressive, but what is most intriguing is how fresh the Collection is relative to Vintage Champagne, which has always been a heavier, more oxidative wine.

The palate delivers a very attractive and concentrated array of yellow stone fruit flavors. Smooth and creamy, sorbet-like finish. Drink now or age." (10/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Pol Roger's 2008 Brut Vintage is bright and energetic, but also tightly wound and not fully expressive today. There is good energy to the orchard fruit and citrus driven flavors, not to mention plenty of acid-driven persistence. I wo ...Read More »

2004 Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Alexandra" Brut Rosé Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "First produced in the 1987 vintage to celebrate the marriage of owner Bernard de Nonancourt’s eldest daughter, this bottling is now mature. Ripe, it still retains plenty of red fruits while also allowing the toasty character to show through. It’s a rosé that calls for food, a rich and balanced wine that is just perfect to drink now. (RV)" (12/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based on synced-fermented 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from company-owned grand cru vineyards, the salmon-pink colored 2004 Alexandr ...Read More »

2007 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Magnum (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "Some slight reduction here, this has a lemon biscuit edge and attractive toasty autolysis influence. The palate is more about stone fruits with some mellow spicy flavors building to citrus through the finish." (10/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This creamy version offers a lively bead and flavors of baked currant, toast and candied lemon zest. Fresh and easy-drinking, with an open-knit finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)" (12/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Greenish lemon colour. Very tight knit and introvert on the nose – this ...Read More »

Taittinger "La Francaise" Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deliciously delicate Taittinger NV Brut La Francaise L2383PK01300 is strikingly buoyant and dominated by subtle scents of yeast-tinged flowers and foliage - honeysuckle and mint immediately come to mind - that allude to its roughly one-quarter Meunier component, with a luscious matrix of lime-drenched honeydew melon and apple well-supported by discreet residual sugar leading to a sustained and refreshing finish. Hints of toasted almond and vanilla-tinged cookie dough lend a faintly confectionary cast that man ...Read More »

1995 Charles Heidsieck "Blanc des Millénaires" Brut Champagne

95 points Decanter: "The last batch of 1995 was disgorged in summer 2017, after spending 21 years on lees. ‘Jetted’ to revive it after disgorgement, it has a new lease of life. A refreshing young Champagne with pure chalkiness and lemon intensity. Cries out for oysters. (CG)" (07/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep, pure and fresh on the fruit-intense and complex nose, the 1995 Blanc des Millenaires is still young and incredibly fresh on the palate. This is refreshingly pure, concentrated, fruity and perfectly round Champagne that reve ...Read More »
