    NV / 750 ml. | Item#15086

    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2017
    This bright and stylish Champagne is tightly knit and satiny in texture, with hints of smoke and pastry cream underscoring the apricot, lemon curd and pickled ginger flavors. Ends with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases imported.

    Based on 2012 and 45% reserve wines of 2011 and a bit of 2010, the white-golden colored NV Brut Classic is very clear and elegant on the nose; it offers bright fruit aromas and fresh lemon flavors, along with herbal aromas. Light, pure and finesse-full on the palate, this is a pretty mineral and refreshing cuvée with good substance in the finish. A delicious aperitif.

    This nonvintage classic is on point with its soft, ripe style. It has just enough maturity to fill out the fruit, with hints of almond and toast. On the palate, attractive bright citrus and green apple flavors dominate.
    ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
    Light yellow. Toasty lees, poached pear and lemon rind on the pungent nose. Offers an array of sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and becomes spicier with air. The lemon and lees notes come back on the broad, clear finish.

    An assertive citrus and peach-stone fruit style that has plenty of bread-dough and yeasty influence on the nose and palate. The acidity is piercing, and some red fruit flavors and smooth tannins show themselves to close things out. Drink now.
    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 31, 2010
    Broad and toasty with baked fruit flavors of orange and lime, this is a simple, polished Champagne to serve with creamy dishes, like blanquette de veau. Best Buy.

  2. Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#30666

    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2017
    A harmonious Champagne that’s satiny in texture, framing flavors of Asian pear, star fruit, pastry and honey with mouthwatering acidity. Offers a fine and creamy finish. Drink now through 2021.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
    This blend includes 40 percent pinot meunier, the balance equal parts pinot noir and chardonnay. Its remarkable fruitiness might be tied to the firm’s long, slow, cool fermentations, which, they believe, allow meunier to maintain its perfume. This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness. It’s a lovely prediction of what Champagne might become in a warming climate.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
    Beautifully understated, this offers fruit that’s well integrated with the tight texture, giving a seamless, dry while also fruity wine. Just a hint of bottle maturity adds complexity.
    ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2013
    Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, orange zest and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering energetic redcurrant and blood orange flavors that show good concentration and a supple texture. A mineral nuance adds bite to the finish, with the floral note echoing.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2010
    The NV Brut Reserve is a beautiful wine graced with layers of exquisite, mineral laced citrus, pears and white peaches. I suppose this could use a little more length through the mid-palate, but it is nevertheless a strikingly beautiful, pure wine at this price point.
