Champaigne

Champagne

Here you'll find all the familiar and famous producers at very competitive prices, but even more exciting is the smaller grower-producers that we offer. K&L imports many of these grower-producer Champagnes directly, saving you a bunch of money that would otherwise end up in the pocket of an importer or distributor. The folks are able to control the entire process of making their Champagnes, since they do the vineyard work as well as the winemaking. In addition to the Champagne selection shown below, we operate a Champagne Club that you don't want to miss.

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne (375ml)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bollinger’s NV Special Cuvée knocks it out of the park. Made from 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Meunier, with 30% of the blend brought up in barrels, it boasts a rich, deep, medium to full-bodied style as well as terrific notes of lemon curd, crème brûlée, caramelized stone fruits, and hints of toasty nuttiness that develop with time in the glass. It’s a big, rich Champagne that stays balanced and pure. Beautiful stuff. 2018-2028." (03/2018) 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " There is lovely complexity t ...Read More »

Louis Roederer "Brut Premier" Champagne (375ml)

92 points John Gilman: "The new release of Brut Premier is from the base year of 2012 and was disgorged in the spring of 2016, after spending three years aging on its fine lees. The wine is its customary blend of forty percent each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and twenty percent Pinot Meunier. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a complex and still youthful blend of apple, white peach, gentle leesiness, patissière, lovely soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and beautifully balanced, with excellent mid-palate depth ...Read More »

2008 Pol Roger Vintage Brut Champagne Magnum (1.5L)

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.

The wine is drinking very nicely, offering up a complex nose of apple, a touch of peach, lovely soil tones, fresh-baked bread and incipient smokiness in the upper register.

Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Winery notes: "Charles Heidsieck was one of the very first Champagne Houses to demonstrate its passion for Chardonnay by producing a Blanc de Blancs in its 1949 vintage. There is also evidence that the Maison had produced some mono-crus from the Côte des Blancs as early as 1906... Through this cuvée, relaunched in 2018, two of the House’s areas of expertise come together: the production of great white wines and the art of blending a large selection of wines from different years and terroirs. The considerable challenge is to make opposites coexist: the ta ...Read More »

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.

2006 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne

Fine-drawn and elegant, It has a nice structure and well-defined flavours of red fruits, quince and a touch of apricot, accompanied by a subtle spiciness. The one criticism aimed at 2006 is that the wines can lack acidity - but not this one. Ready to drink now, maybe with blinis. Disgorged in 2017.

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.

2006 Bollinger "Vieilles Vignes Françaises" Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

Bollinger makes about 170 cases of this, only in certain vintages. It is made from three plots of entirely ungrafted Pinot Noir farmed in the traditional en foule method, a super dense plantation (about 30,000 vines per hectare -- normal is 7,000!) where the vines are allowed layer up. The sites in Ay consist of the 1/3 acre Clos St. Jacques and the half acre Chaudes Terres, a walled garden directly behind Bollinger. I have stood in this second vineyard -- it looks ghastly; it is hard to imagine one of the best wines on the planet coming from it. It is a ...Read More »

Eight generations have passed since Nicolas CHIQUET planted his first vine in 1746.

In 1923, they were awarded their first medal in Paris, then their gold medal in Epernay. The 2008 is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, aged on the lees fo ...Read More »

Drappier Carte d'Or Brut Champagne (375ml)

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)" (10/2017) Vinous: "Light yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of orange pith, dried apple and toasty lees, with a hint of chamomile in the background. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering bitter pear skin and quinine flavors and a touch of blood orange. Finishes with good grip and cut, leaving ...Read More »

Moët & Chandon "Nectar Impérial" Demi-Sec Champagne

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Yellow-gold with a faint peach skin tinge. Peach, nectarine and spun sugar on the nose. Lush, creamy flavors of sweet pit fruits and melon are deepened by notes of honey and nougat. A touch of orange peel lifts this sappy, off-dry wine, which finishes on a slightly syrupy note. This is easier to drink and less cloying than many examples of sweet Champagne. " (12/2009) Wine Enthusiast: "A good benchmark for a sweeter Champagne. In fact, not extravagantly sweet, because the fruit remains fresh, giving pear and ...Read More »

Drappier Carte d'Or Brut Champagne (1.5L)

Lanson "Black Label" Brut Champagne Magnum (1.5L)

91 points John Gilman: "The present bottling of Lanson (Black) Label in the market was disgorged in October of 2017. The wine is drinking very nicely, offering up a complex nose of apple, a touch of peach, lovely soil tones, fresh-baked bread and incipient smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and focused, with a good core, pinpoint bubbles, fine acids and a long, complex and well-balanced finish. This has the cut and backend bounce of a non-malo bubbly, but with the acids beautifully buffered. A fine Brut NV. (Dr ...Read More »

Delamotte Brut Rosé Champagne

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Delamotte NV Brut Rosé is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay that receives its beautiful pink-salmon color from the saignée method. The grapes are sourced exclusively in grand cru villages such as Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne for the Pinot and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay and are fermented together. The wine tasted here is based on 2012 (disgorged in June 2016 with a dosage of seven grams per liter) and opens with a highly delicate and subtle bouquet of red fruits intermixed with ver ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Demi-Sec Champagne

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light yellow. Aromas of poached pear, honey and buttered toast, plus a hint of white peach that gains strength with air. Fleshy, broad and appealingly sweet but in no way cloying, offering juicy orchard fruit and melon flavors and a touch of bitter peach pit. A buttery quality comes up on the finish, which clings with strong fruity intensity. I imagine that this opulent, fruity but focused Champagne would do wonders with practically any cheese out there, especially salty, washed rind and blue version ...Read More »
