Smooth and rich on the palate, with straight acidity and full aromas of fruit, olives and pepper. Crispy tannins give length and youth to the finish.

    Wine Enthusiast 88: Mainly Mourvèdre with a touch of Cinsault and Grenache, this wine is warm, ripe and fruity. Red-berry flavors have a smoky edge as well as crisp perfumed acidity, giving richness and freshness at the same time. The wine is ready to drink.

  • 2018 Dufaitre Beaujolais-Villages Blanc

    $32.99
    Tasting Notes This wine has a refined taste reminiscent of much fancier Burgundy, while there is still something that tells you it is Beaujolais. There is a savory backbone to this wine and it strikes the palate with real force, with a finish that stretches on and on.

  • NV Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve

    $54.99
    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 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.

  • 2017 Jean-Philippe Fichet ‘Vieilles Vignes’ Bourgogne Blanc

    $44.99
    WA 90VN 90
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90: A considerable step up over the regular Bourgogne, Fichet's 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Vieilles Vignes unfurls in the glass with notes of beeswax, pear, white flowers and waxy lemon rind. On the palate, it's similarly tangy but fleshier and more concentrated, with depth and structure that nod to Meursault.
    Vinous 90: Bright, pale yellow. Complex aromas and flavors of white peach, citrus fruits and minerals, plus a toasty nuance. At once fine-grained and nicely chiseled, conveying a captivating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with real punch and length. This is Bourgogne Blanc at the quality level of Meursault.

  • 2017 Meo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs Nuits-Saint-Georges

    $119.99
    VN 90
    Vinous 90: The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Village has an appealing bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry and orange blossom aromas that demonstrate a little more delineation than some of the other Village Crus from Méo-Camuzet’s négociant arm. The palate is medium-bodied with vivid red fruit, good tension and fine tannin. Though it tapers a little toward the finish, this is a fine Village Cru to enjoy over several years.

  • 2017 Domaine Louis Boillot & Fils Bourgogne

    $44.99
    Tasting Notes The Bourgogone comes from small parcels in Gevrey and Brochon. Here the Pinot Noir develops charming scents of red fruit and spice. This is delicious young, but will keep for 5 years in a cool, dark cellar.

  • NV Charles Heidsieck Rosé Reserve

    $69.99
    WS 93WA 93WE 91DC 95
    Wine Spectator 93: A rich and toasty version, with vibrant acidity driving the expressive range of crème de cassis, ground coffee, toasted brioche, candied ginger and lemon parfait. Long and creamy on the well-spiced, expansive finish.
    Wine Enthusiast 91: This dry, orange-pink wine is crisp and delicately fruity, but with a tangy, almost tannin texture that gives a definite bite. The bottling (disgorged in 2015) is still young and dominated by the tight acidity.
    Decanter 95: Twinkling salmon lights in the glass. Intriguing citrus aromas pour out, backed up by toasty, honeyed tones. The Pinot Noir character really shows through in a rich, opulent style. This rosé Champagne would be delicious with seafood.

  • 2019 Domaine Gueneau ‘Chavignolet’ Sancerre Rosé

    $28.99
    Tasting Notes Bright partridge-eye pink. The first smell is characterised by fermentation notes of apple and red currant, opening up to aromas of ripe lemon, then creamy notes of pear yoghurt. The attack is supple with fatness and a progressively growing acidity, which convenes lightness to the palate characterised by aromas of red berries, and a hint of whipped cream. Very elegant. It is the perfect match for aperitif, barbecues, and exotic dishes.

  • 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.
    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.

  • 2008 Laurent-Perrier ‘Millésimé’ Brut

    $74.99
    WS 93WA 93JS 95WE 96DC 91
    Wine Spectator 93: 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.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93: 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.
    James Suckling 95: 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.
    Wine Enthusiast 96: 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.

  • 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.
    Robert Parker's 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.

  • 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.
    Robert Parker's 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.

  • 2018 Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin Chablis Grand Cru ‘Les Clos’

    $125.99
    JS 95
    James Suckling 95: There’s such richness from the very first impression with all manner of peaches and nectarines, as well as mangoes. Smooth, peach brulée and lemon curd. Some hazelnuts, too. The palate has a super fleshy feel, very plush, very seductive and a very long, full finish. Late, mineral stream here. Drink on release or hold. This will be best at 15+ years.

    Wine Spectator 93: A rich rosé Champagne, offering seamlessly woven flavors of baked black cherry, candied pink grapefruit peel, brioche and pastry cream. Vibrant acidity and a finely detailed mousse send this dancing across the palate.
    James Suckling 92: Very fruity with lots of strawberry and cherry character. Full and flavorful. Soft and fruity. Delicious and opulent aftertaste. Fruitier style. Drink now.
    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.

    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.

  • 2016 Château Puech-Haut ‘La Closerie du Pic’

    $39.99
    WA 92
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92: The 2016 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie du Pic, a blend of Syrah and Grenache, features striking aromas of crushed stone to go along with the familiar cola and plum notes so typical of this estate's style. It's full-bodied and softly tannic but concentrated, with more freshness, energy and length than the entry-level wines. It should drink well for up to a decade.

  • 2014 Domaine des Sabines Lalande de Pomerol

    $54.99
    WA 92
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92: The Domaine de Sabines 2014, from the hand of Jean-Luc Thunévin, has a captivating nose: very well defined and tensile with animated black cherries and raspberry fruit that is beautifully interwoven with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, a keen line of acidity and a concentrated but very balanced, pure bouquet that is silky smooth and persistent. This might not be one of Jean-Luc’s most famous crus but it is well worth your attention, a modern Right Bank wine that is deftly executed.
