Champagne

Champagne

Champagne. The word alone elicits thoughts of luxury, grandeur and poise. Located in northern France, Champagne is one of the northernmost wine-producing regions in the world. This tasty, bubbly beverage is made with varying percentages of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier… if you see a bottle labeled “Blanc de Blanc” it is made from 100% Chardonnay while “Blanc de Noir” is made from only Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Famous Champagne houses such as Krug, Veuve Clicquot, Ponsardin, Bollinger, Louis Roederer, Tattinger, and Moët & Chandon have been refining their craft for over 100 years (200+ in some cases!). The highest examples of Champagne know no equal and thus, have been legally protected. With only the rarest of exceptions, no bottle of sparkling wine produced outside the Champagne region can have the word “Champagne” printed on its label.

    Grand Cru 100% Bouzy
    NV / 750 ml. | Item#45791

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2011
    The NV Brut Grande Réserve emerges from the glass with layers of hazelnut, pear, spice and dried flower aromas. This rich, creamy wine impresses for its balance and sheer richness. I loved it. This is Lot L06.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2011
    Unfortunately I was only able to taste one new release from Andre Clouet this year. The NV Brut Grande Reserve emerges from the glass with layers of hazelnut, pear, spice and dried flower aromas. This rich, creamy wine impresses for its balance and sheer richness. I loved it. This is Lot L06. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2014.

    Ludes
    NV / 750 ml. | Item#39887

    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2018
    A rich, toasty Champagne, backed by vibrant acidity and showing lovely balance. The finely textured mousse carries a range of cherry, candied ginger, toasted brioche, chalk and blood orange granita flavors. Disgorged October 2017. Drink now through 2021. 2,833 cases imported.
    WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
    A blend of equal parts pinot meunier and chardonnay, with 20 percent pinot noir, this plays meunier’s rich and heady orange-blossom and strawberry notes off the crushed limestone severity of Côte des Blancs chardonnay. And yet the two merge harmoniously into a platinum-clear Champagne, hinting at fresh pear skin layered over meatier fruit. It’s a great buy at $38.

  3. Champagne Henriot Brut Souverain

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#28190

    WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2009
    A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely molded wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months. Editors’ Choice.
    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2014
    Henriot’s non-vintage blend takes a panoramic view of Champagne, working with fruit from 25 crus, 60 percent pinot noir (mostly Montagne de Reims) and 40 percent chardonnay (mostly Côte des Blancs). One third of the blend is reserve wine from four vintages. The current release is brisk, bright, zesty and grand, its flavors combining fresh lemon and earthy roasted fennel in a gracious, mouthwatering Champagne.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2018
    A finely balanced and creamy Champagne. Smoky mineral and toast notes on the nose lead to flavors of crunchy white peach and lemon curd, with a green waft of spring blossom on the fresh palate. Drink now through 2021. 6,000 cases imported.
    ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2008
    Light yellow with a delicate bead. Smoky pear, quince and orange on the nose, with faint yeastiness adding depth. Brisk and dry, displaying finely etched orchard fruit flavors and a jolt of bitter lime zest on the back end. The clean, focused, firm finish repeats the smoky note. I like this wine’s finesse.

  4. Laurent-Perrier Brut Millésimé Champagne

    2008 / 750 ml. | Item#18005

    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2019
    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. Drink from 2022.
    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, September 2, 2019
    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 dry aftertaste.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2019
    A finely knit Champagne, defined by well-cut acidity that frames notes of Asian pear, white cherry, slivered almond and fleur de sel. The mousse shows a lovely creamy viscosity. Hints of citrus and spice emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases imported.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2019
    The 2008 Brut Millésimé opens in the glass with lovely aromas of lemon oil, green apple, warm biscuits, iodine and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, with an elegantly layered core, a fine, pinpoint mousse and racy balancing acids, concluding with a long and incipiently biscuity finish. This is a classy vintage Champagne that will develop beautiful complexity in the cellar.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2019
    The 2008 Brut Millésimé is a gorgeous wine that expresses all of the pedigree of the vintage beautifully. Complex and nuanced, with tons of class, the 2008 has so much to offer. Dried pear, mint, chamomile, crushed rock, dried flowers and pastry overtones are all laced together in this finely-knit, resonant Champagne. At $75.00 a bottle, Laurent-Perrier’s Brut Millésimé is one the best widely available vintage Champagne readers find from this historic harvest.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2019
    As bright as a sunny meadow full of spring flowers, and as mellow as the cream made from the cows that graze there, this is a fresh 2008 with generous depths of clean lemon and apple flavor. It’s smoky and chalky, a sleek wine to enjoy now, with rich shellfish.

  6. Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#18369

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
    Vivid orange-pink. An expressive, spice-accented bouquet evokes fresh raspberry, orange pith, white flowers and ginger, with a hint of rhubarb adding an earthy flourish. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering intense red fruit and bitter citrus flavors underscored by chalky mineral and white pepper notes. Rich yet lively rosé with excellent closing thrust and floral persistence.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
    Firm and finely knit, this offers richness in a sleek frame, with crushed raspberry, blood orange peel, smoke and toasted almond notes set on the satiny mousse. The finish echoes subtle saffron and spice accents. Drink now through 2022. 9,600 cases imported.
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2019
    The latest iteration of Laurent-Perrier’s NV Brut Cuvée Rosé is showing brilliantly, bursting from the glass with notes of smoky red berry fruit, apples, blood orange, pomegranate and warm biscuits. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a delicate mousse, good depth at the core and ripe acids, concluding with a sapid, gently phenolic finish. This is a sophisticated, gastronomic rosé that would work well at table.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2004
    Starts off toasty and citrusy, then seems to add weight and size in the glass, adding layers of cherry-berry fruit and a hint of dark chocolate. It ends up being a big, broad shouldered wine you could pair with main-course meats.
    WS8787 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
    Soft red fruit flavors of strawberry and red currant infuse this rich wine, fatty as the crab and watermelon salad with which you might serve it.

    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2019
    Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022. 222,500 cases made, 29,000 cases imported.
    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
    The quality of this nonvintage wine from Piper-Hedsieck is a sign of the increasing quality of the range as a whole. It’s a wine that hovers comfortably between freshness and maturity, between a soft dosage and crisp fresh apples. This bottling is ready to drink.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
    Medium straw. Light gold, with a strong mousse. Smoky, rich and floral on the nose, with suggestions of orange peel, pear and jasmine. Nicely concentrated and moderately weighty, with flavors of lemon cream and buttered toast. Quite long, with the butter and lemon notes resonating.
    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
    Ripe pears, crisp green apples and flowers emerge from Piper-Heidsieck’s NV Brut Cuvée. This medium-bodied non-vintage Champagne offers excellent persistence and a long, clean finish. It is a very solid effort at this level. The Brut Cuvée is 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. This is lot L070921 12253, disgorged December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.
    WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
    Simple, ripe and smooth, this is a gentle, soft style of Champagne for parties.

    Boysenberry and yellow peach fruit is ripe and tangy in this floral rosé, framed by juicy acidity and a lively bead, while chalk and smoke notes underscore the salted almond, lemon meringue pie and candied ginger accents that show on the finish. Disgorged April 2014. Drink now through 2020. 750 cases made.

  11. Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée

    WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
    Always a rich non-vintage, this latest bottling doesn’t disappoint expectations. It has a rich, biscuity character, hints of toast along with pure citrus and fresh apricots. It is ripe, generous, to be drunk with food.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2018
    Bright, almost crunchy acidity and the finely detailed mousse carry an expressive mix of poached apricot and cherry fruit, toast point, orange peel and ground ginger flavors in this firm, focused Champagne, with a graphite-laced, minerally finish. Drink now through 2022. 12,000 cases imported.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
    The NV Brut Special Cuvée opens with elegant, well-delineated aromas of honey, brioche, roasted nuts, orange zest, flowers and peaches, of which appear on the palate in a classy, finessed expression of the house style. This is an especially refined and delicious NV Champagne. The Special Cuvée is roughly 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier (2004, 2003) sourced from a variety of vineyards. Bollinger adds 5–10% of reserve wines (in this case from 1995 and 1996, aged in magnums) which gives this offering its lovely complexity. The dosage is 7–9 grams per liter. This is Lot: 807704, disgorged towards the end of 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2012.
    WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
    At every turn of flavor, barrel-fermented base wines add opulence to this Champagne with scents of apple wood, ginger and mustard seed balancing the youthful fruit. The flavors buzz with acidity and richness, a contrast of green apple with broader notes of baked apple; the texture is creamy, the finish completely clean. The wine’s structure is substantial enough to serve with sliced, seared beef filet at a holiday party.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
    Light gold color with a strong mousse. Classic Bollinger aromas of poached pear, caramel apple and toasted bread, lifted by a bright hint of lime. Full and rich on the palate, held up by good acids. The notes of apple, pear and toast repeat in the mouth. Finishes with flavors of singed apples and pears.

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#46185

    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
    This creamy wine has a distinct mature and toasty character to balance the crisp white fruits and lively acidity. It is on the sweeter end of Brut, which adds richness to this attractive nonvintage.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
    A fresh and elegant Champagne, with the delicate mousse imparting a soft creaminess to the finely knit flavors of poached apricot, toast, lemon preserves and spun honey. Smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2021. 40,000 cases imported.
    WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
    This wine updates an old-fashioned grand-marque style of Champagne with a bright, spicy approach. Its meaty, sweet umami notes bring to mind morels, while cool, zesty acidity keeps it clean and savory. Chill it down for aperitifs.
    ST8787 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2006
    Bright gold. Earthy, smoky aromas of apple, pear and sweet butter. A rich, powerful style, with deep orchard fruit flavors and complicating mushroom and toffee notes. Serve this with food.
    RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
    The NV Grand Brut is a pleasing, creamy-textured wine with good definition in its flavors and lovely overall harmony. The house’s NV Brut is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, with 10–20% of reserve wines added. Disgorged on November 14, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.

  14. Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve

    (RED) label
    NV / 750 ml. | Item#44005

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

  15. Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#47266

    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2015
    Well-cut and firm, with a smoky underpinning and a chalky texture, this shows an open-knit mix of black raspberry, slivered almond, lemon peel and star anise. Enjoy with food. Drink now through 2020. 25,000 cases imported.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2017
    The NV Brut La Française is based on 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, all fermented in stainless steel and blended with 30% of reserve wines. It is a pure, fresh and well-structured Brut that seems more elegant, complex and round than the Brut Réserve. The persistent finish is clear, fresh and well structured, with refreshing lemon flavors and a nice grip. My sample was said to be bottled in 2014 and disgorged in March 2017 with nine grams of dosage. There is good length and tension here as well as sweet cherry aromas in the aftertaste.
    WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2007
    The deep savor of this wine is built out of lees to hint at fresh almonds and toasted wheat. Bubbles refresh its lusciousness, giving it drive. The mouthwatering white and green fruit tones would work well with pan-roasted brook trout and slivered almonds.
    WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2017
    This ripe wine is balanced with some fine bottle aging. That gives both a toasty aroma and some yeasty flavors on the palate. The wine is packed with citrus and crisp white fruits — it’s floral and immediately attractive. Drink this Champagne now.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
    Pale yellow, with an energetic mousse. High-pitched floral and apple aromas are bright, accented by a refreshing note of mint. Yeasty and toasty in the mouth but ultimately a more delicate style, with fresh, sweet citrus and peach flavors. Finishes on a note of fresh bread, with a bit more weight than recent releases of this cuvée.
