  • NV Pol Roger Brut

    $59.00
    WS 92WA 92JS 92WE 90DC 91
    Wine Spectator 92: An elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases imported.
    Wine Advocate 92: 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.
    James Suckling 92: A complex, reliable Champagne that would show well in all occasions thanks to its freshness and class. Drawing on all three grapes (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), this has a complex grilled-nut and autolysis character overlayed across red berries and citrus fruits. Definitely a lot of reserve wine character here. The palate delivers lemons, grapefruit, peaches and mangoes in a refreshingly pure, fleshy style. The bright acidity, handy balance and tannins smoothly frame the finish.
    Wine Enthusiast 90: 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.
    Decanter 91: Pol is always a great Champagne to serve to your guests: a classy, balanced expression of the three grape varieties allowed by law. It has plenty of rich apple fruit along with a streak of lemon zest and just a hint of juicy tangerine. The palate is round but fresh, and has a long, steely finish which leaves you wanting another sip.

  • NV Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve

    $57.00
    WS 93WA 92WE 92DC 92
    Wine Spectator 93: This vibrant version shows a range of toasted brioche, baked cherry, crystalized honey, grated ginger and coconut flavors, remaining light-footed and lively throughout. Beautifully balanced, with a lasting, mouthwatering finish.
    Wine Advocate 92: Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by fully 40% old reserve wines, the new release of Charles Heidsieck's NV Brut Réserve was disgorged earlier this year. It's showing very well, opening up in the glass with notes of green apple, dried white flowers, pear, candied peel and walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack and a racier, tighter-knit core than either the 2012- or 2010-base renditions, displaying good concentration and underlying richness. This is a bottling that continues to punch above its weight and which both merits and rewards a few years in the cellar before opening.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: This ripe Champagne is deliciously balanced between the rich white fruits and good acidity. Zingy texture gives it a crisp edge. Full, fruity and with the ability to age, it is ready to drink. Editors' Choice.
    Decanter 92: Surprisingly good. Fresh and clean with citrus notes at first but with time it opens up to show a richer tropical character. Nice toasty notes come out on the palate. Long finish.

  • 2008 Dom Perignon

    $199.99
    WS 96WA 96JS 98
    Wine Spectator 96: There's power to this graceful Champagne, with the vivid acidity swathed in a fine, creamy mousse and flavors of toasted brioche, kumquat, pastry cream, candied ginger and poached plum that dance across the palate. An underpinning of smoky mineral gains momentum on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2033.
    Wine Advocate 96: The finest release of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage, the 2008 Dom Pérignon wafts from the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, green apple, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with only subtle hints of the smoky, autolytic aromas that have been such a prominent signature of recent releases. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, its notable flesh and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with a youthfully exuberant but elegant mousse and a long, beautifully delineated finish. Considering the sheer size of this cuvée, it's a remarkable achievement and a fitting release with which to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as chef de cave. Given the 2008's intensity and balance, I suspect purists will be anticipating later disgorgements with lower dosage and more time on the lees with particular enthusiasm. Tasted three times, with consistent results.
    James Suckling 98: 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.

    WE 90
    Wine Enthusiast 90: Part of a range of wines created by Jean-Charles Boisset of Boisset Family Estates. This Cremant is crisply apple and lemon flavored, a bone-dry, textured wine that is destined for food. It finishes with elegant acidity.

  • 2015 Llopart Rosé Brut Reserva

    $23.00
    Tasting Notes Very bright cherry-pink color. Well-developed bubbles, constant and small in size. Fruity exuberant aroma dominated by a variety of forest fruits along with delicate tannins. An initially potent flavor with good structure and just the right degree of acidity that maintains a perfect balance throughout its prolonged lingering aftertaste.

  • 2006 Pol Roger ‘Sir Winston Churchill’ Brut

    $299.00
    WS 95JS 95
    Wine Spectator 95: This dances gracefully on the palate, with rich and expressive flavors of peach tart, raspberry sorbet, candied ginger and orange peel, and sleek acidity that leaves a mouthwatering impression on the satiny finish. Drink now through 2031.
    James Suckling 95: Some reductive meaty notes of bacon fat and flint, with lemon cream and butter too, as well as a light forest berry edge and toasted hazelnuts. The palate has attractive lemon citrus cream flavor. Super pure, there's power amongst the charm. This is a great '06.

  • NV Demarie ‘Luigi’ Pet-Nat Rosé

    $23.00
    Tasting Notes With 70% Arneis with the balance coming from Nebbiolo, Luigi is a playful and compelling wine with mild carbonation and energetic flavor. The sediment in the bottle is naturally occurring with this type of wine.

  • NV Veuve Clicquot ‘Yellow Label’ Brut

    WS 90JS 92
    Wine Spectator 90: This is tightly knit and racy, with a spicy underpinning and a clean-cut mix of poached pear, grated ginger and pink grapefruit zest. An aperitif style, showing a crisp, lacy finish. Drink now.
    James Suckling 92: Some oyster shell, berry biscuits, fresh strawberries and gently toasty brioche here. Lots to like. The palate is plump and flavorsome with plenty of berries and citrus intertwined. Good depth here. Grapefruit finish.

  • NV Veuve Cliquot Brut Rosé

    $84.00
    WS 91JS 92DC 90
    Wine Spectator 91: A harmonious rosé, with crunchy acidity well-meshed to the lacy mousse and minerally, smoke- and stone-laced underpinning, forming a fine frame for the flavors of ripe white cherry and pink grapefruit zest, accented by a touch of whole-grain toast. Drink now.
    James Suckling 92: The non-vintage edition of Veuve's ros‚ Champagne has a bright-strawberry and raspberry-fruit thread on the nose with a gently spicy edge too. The palate's big on flavor and really exuberant thanks to expressive strawberry and hints of pink grapefruit.
    Decanter 90: Elegant and inviting with notes of heady Turkish delight and rhubarb, while the palate has a beautiful raspberry pip quality.

  • NV Bollinger ‘Special Cuvée’ Brut

    $78.99
    WS 93WA 91JS 92WE 92DC 90
    Wine Spectator 93: Lovely aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry and currant fruit, graphite, toast and candied Meyer lemon zest are set in this racy Champagne, with a refined, finely detailed mousse. The mouthwatering finish is long and spicy.
    Wine Advocate 91: Disgorged in the second half of 2019, the latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Special Cuvée is based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by around 60% reserve wines. The wine is still quite tightly wound after its recent disgorgement, opening in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, clear honey and orange peel, with little sign of the nuttiness to come with bottle age. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, muscular and incipiently textural, with a deep core, ripe acids and a pinpoint mousse. This isn't the most incisive vintage of Special Cuvée, but it's powerful and vinous and will have fine gastronomic potential with a little bottle age.
    James Suckling 92: Fine bubbles combine nicely with the cooked apples, pie crust and lemon rind. Some biscuit, too. Full body. Layered and creamy with a crisp finish. Always delicious. Drink now.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: As always with this producer, this iconic nonvintage cuvée is dominated by Pinot Noir that gives impressive richness as well as ripe stone fruits. Wood fermentation adds further complexity as does the age of this bottling before release. Drink this Champagne now.
    Decanter 90: Bollinger's meaty blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier, with 25% Chardonnay too, seems a bit at odds with its gorgeously elegant bottle silhouette, modelled after the proportions of the house's magnums. But it all comes together when you taste it, the predominantly premier and grand cru grapes working their magic and delivering a full but fresh expression with plenty of appley fruit, cleansing acidity with a lick of lime, and full, briochey aromas.

  • 2007 Billecart-Salmon ‘Cuvée Elisabeth’ Champagne Brut Rosé

    $239.99
    WS 94WA 97
    Wine Spectator 94: An elegant rosé Champagne, fresh and focused, with the silky mousse carrying a fine range of nectarine and white cherry fruit, underscored by grated ginger, marzipan and saline flavors. Offers a lingering, creamy finish. Drink now through 2027.
    Wine Advocate 97: Created in 1988 as a tribute to one of the house’s founders, Elisabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon's iconic 2007 Millésime Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth displays a beautifully radiant, shimmering orange-salmon color. The bouquet of this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend is as intense as it is delicate and vinous, displaying red and yellow-fleshed fruit intertwined with floral, chalky and citrus notes as well as a noble sur lie character. Round, lush and delicate on the palate, this is a highly elegant, charming, beautifully balanced rosé with great finesse and amazingly fine grip on the long yet pure, tensioned, well-structured and stimulatingly salty finish. This rosé Champagne is close to perfection! A small percentage of the Pinot Noir—from old vines in the south-facing Valofroy parcel in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ—was vinified as red wine and added to give this unique color and vinosity. The other Pinots are sourced in the grand crus Verzenay and Aÿ, and the Chardonnay comes from grand crus in the Côte des Blancs, namely Chouilly, Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger.

    $84.99
    WS 93JS 92WE 91

    Wine Enthusiast 91: This dark-colored Champagne is made by skin maceration. It comes from premier cru vineyards, yielding a ripe, structured wine with hints of tannins as well as rich strawberry fruits. Acidity and freshness keep it all in order. Drink now.

  • NV Barnaut ‘Rosé Authentique’ Champagne Grand Cru Brut

    $69.99
    WS 90VN 90
    Wine Spectator 90: Fresh and lively, with ripe strawberry, black cherry, smoke and whole-grain toast notes riding the refined mousse. Not a powerhouse, but very drinkable. Drink now.
    Vinous 90: Bright orange. Potent red berry and blood orange aromas are complicated by notes of dried rose, smoky minerals and anise. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter orange pith and red berry skin flavors that gain sweetness with air. At once ample and lively, finishing with very good cut and lingering toastiness.

  • 2004 Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs (1.5 L)

    $459.99
    WS 92JS 95WE 95
    Wine Spectator 92: Toasted brioche and pastry cream notes are rich and smoky in this elegant Champagne, riding the refined mousse with flavors of white peach and candied kumquat. The spiced finish is ripe and balanced. Drink now through 2025.
    James Suckling 95: The vintage edition of Billecart's Blanc de Blancs comes from the same four villages as the NV but carries a much more savory style, showcasing plenty of pastry and chalky lees-derived oyster shell as well as a subtly spicy oak thread. Fresh almond nougat, honeyed peaches and white flowers all abound. The palate texture is striking, smooth and creamy, as peach and lemon-custard flavors run even and long. Really impeccably balanced. Handy depth and drive. Drinking very well now: in a great place.
    Wine Enthusiast 95: This is a superb Blanc de Blancs that boasts great minerality, texture and intense fruit flavor. It's a finely structured wine, now approaching maturity with its apple, citrus and green pear notes. Lingering in the mouth, it is a beautifully long-lasting, pure wine. Drink until 2018 and probably beyond. Cellar Selection.
