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.

  1. Pol Roger Brut Réserve Champagne

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#13953

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 3rd Mar 2016
    Straw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Réserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Réserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
    A well-cut Champagne, with a zesty mousse, this offers a harmonious mix of crème de cassis, Honeycrisp apple, candied ginger and toasty notes, offering a subtle, smoke- and spice-tinged finish. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 110,000 cases made, 12,000 cases imported.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2016
    This is a well-balanced, ripe wine in the producer’s rich house style. A brighter, more mineral crispness and acidity also come through strongly in this bottling. The aftertaste brings together a mineral texture and full yellow and apple fruits. Drink now.
    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 31, 2009
    Bright white chalk and yellow fruit scents contrast darker tones of root vegetables and earth. This is clean and dry, with minerality that lasts. The acidity makes it a refreshing match for tempura.

    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.

  5. 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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

  7. 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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

  8. G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut Champagne

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#45948

    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2015
    Flavors of poached pear, candied lemon zest and biscuit, with a rich hint of roasted almond, ride the lively bead of this crisp, minerally Champagne. Drink now through 2018. 15,000 cases imported.
    WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2007
    This must be one of the most familiar nonvintage Champagnes, so it’s good to be able to report that it is much improved. The dosage has been lowered, and there is considerable freshness, crispness with apple and toast. It is full-bodied but well balanced.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2006
    Light gold. Buttered apple and pear aromas, with hints of anise and brioche. Medium in weight, with a silky texture and sweet orchard fruit flavors framed by gentle acidity. Broad and rich on the finish, with a lingering note of sweet butter.

  10. Piper Heidsieck Cuvée Brut

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#5538

    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.
    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.
    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.
    WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
    Simple, ripe and smooth, this is a gentle, soft style of Champagne for parties.

  11. Taittinger Prestige Rosé

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#29072

    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2013
    A firm, toasty rosé, with roasted hazelnut and smoke notes underscoring kirsch, dried strawberry, piecrust and fresh ginger flavors. This is lip-smacking, softened and balanced by a fine, creamy texture. Drink now through 2023.
    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, September 2, 2019
    Darker color. Lots of fruit and a creamy texture with cooked apples and cherries and strawberry undertones. Medium to full body. Delicious finish that is dry and fruity. Drink now.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2009
    The NV Brut Rose Prestige is a beautiful wine. Sweet, perfumed fruit emerges from this crisp, layered Champagne. Ideally the Brut Rose Prestige is best enjoyed as an aperitif as the light to medium-bodied frame is likely to be overwhelmed by food. This is truly a lovely effort for such a large property. Disgorged: end of May 2008, (not indicated on label). Anticipated maturity: 2009–2012.

  12. Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#47266

    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.
    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.
    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.

    SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2010
    Candied apple character, with a hint of red berry and a refined texture, mark this elegant, medium-bodied bubbly, which is fresh, with a moderate finish.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2007
    Always an enjoyable non-vintage, Heidsieck Monopole’s style has changed little despite all the changes in ownership. It has a soft, open character, but never seems sweet, and is more rounded with creamy apple flavors and well-integrated acidity.

    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2013
    With some good bottle age, this is a soft, biscuit- and almond-flavored wine. There is a crisp edge from the grapefruit flavor underneath, making this a Champagne that’s full of character and ready to drink now.

  15. Ruinart Rosé Champagne

    This lovely rosé Champagne is harmonious and bright, featuring sleek acidity layered with the lacy mousse and an expressive range of white peach, ripe raspberry and pickled ginger flavors, with hints of smoke and biscuit. Elegant. Drink now through 2023.
    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
    This deep pink rosé starts off from a delicate scent of spice and roses, strawberries and the freshly turned earth of a garden. It grows more powerful and grand with air, building fresh raspberry pinot vinosity, a fragrant essence of limestone and fruit that lasts.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2017
    This soft, finely structured and salmon-hued wine has an explosive mousse. Its attractive strawberry fruit is balanced by rich acidity. Ripe, mouth-filling and softly creamy, it’s ready to drink now and has a rounded aftertaste.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
    The NV Brut Rosé is made in a similarly elegant and refined style, even though it isn’t quite as expressive as the Blanc de Blancs at the outset. With time in the glass the Pinot qualities come through with greater focus. The NV Rosé offers excellent length and a polished personality in the signature Ruinart style. This is Lot: LAD7ZCA, disgorged July, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2011.
