Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml Product #30399 (In Stock)
Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml

After 300 years of growing and making Champagne in Bouzy, the Vesselle family has mastered the art of making rich, toasty, wines with creamy textures and pure, fresh, finishes. This 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) aged 30 months on the lees following secondary fermentation.

A smoky, toasty, nose shows hints of strawberry, pear and spice.  Then fresh and very pure in the mouth with red berry fruit, pear, spice and plenty of toast, biscuit and brioche. Perfect balance on the palate through the long, creamy, finish that lingers on and on. This is delicious to just drink but will work beautifully at table, too.

"Powerful, vinous and beautifully resonant, Vesselle's NV Brut Réserve hits all the right notes. The richness and radiance that make Bouzy Champagnes so compelling comes through in spades. Rich red stone fruit, spice, leather and lightly honeyed notes all form a super-attractive fabric of aromas and flavors in this deep, intensely satisfying NV Champagne. What a gorgeous wine this is."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Charles Clement Champagne Brut Tradition NV Product #31401 (In Stock)
Charles Clement Champagne Brut Tradition NV Charles Clement Champagne Brut Tradition NV

This small cooperative winery in the heart of Champagne has struck gold this year - and "yellow label gold" at that.  Because the Charles Clement Brut Tradition is the kind of wine that will thrill anyone who loves Champagne's most famous "yellow label" (which is actually orange) bottle.  It's a blend of 50% Pinot Noir for richness, 30% Chardonnay for toasty vibrancy, and 20% Pinot Meunier for depth and body.  With 30% reserve wines (base wines from previous vintages) and plenty of time on the lees, it's loaded with crowd-pleasing class.  Small, persistent, bubbles lift aromas of brioche, toasted nuts, apple and stone fruit from the glass.  Then, round and generous on the palate with nice creaminess and plenty of apple, pear, hazelnut and toast flavors that flow on nicely through the fine finish.  A very, very, fine Champagne value!

A terrific bottle of classic and classy real Champagne, priced to share with a crowd.  It’s a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier, and 10% Chardonnay, and the majority of red grapes give it a richness and depth you certainly wouldn’t expect at this price.  When it made it's US debut back in 2012, Wine Spectator rated it 92 points, saying:  "Offers an array of flavor, including toasted brioche, Gala apple, lemon zest, graphite and ginger, with a touch of honey. Good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish."  And, the Washington Post added: "Wow. What a terrific champers for the money."

L. Aubry Fils Brut 1er Cru Nv L. Aubry Fils Brut 1er Cru Nv

"Meunier expresses here as barley, rusks, crackers, and so
the wine is rusky, coppery-saline, iodé, mineral and
appetizing. It’s beautifully expressive of a corner of
Champagne, and tastes as though it were fined with sel gris.
This year it’s 50% 2013 and 50% a perpetual reserve
started in 1998. Deg 1/2016, it’s 55% Meunier (higher than
usual), 25% CH, 20% PN and 5% “other” (which means
basically everything that wouldn’t fit in the vats); it’s in form,
brassy and oyster; after a dip a couple years ago (for which
we have our old friend 2011 to thank) this is better than
ever." -Terry Theise, Importer


Twin brothers Pierre and Philippe Aubry are best-known for
their cuvees rendered from the full range of cepages
authorized for Champagne -- in other words, for their having
tracked down, propagated, and showcased “forgotten”
Champagne varietals. The Aubrys ought to already be
known for perpetrating some of Champagne’s most
startlingly distinctive and profoundly delicious wines, period.

Eric Rodez Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV Product #13997 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV

Over the past few years, Cuvee Crayeres has graduated from a delicious introduction to Eric's wines to a complex, distinctive, very grand wine of its own. It's a 60/40 blend of Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with about 40% aged in barrel and 60% allowed to go through malolactic fermentation.  About 50% of the blend is from reserve wines going back to the mid-2000s.  With 5+ years on the lees and dosage in the 3-4 g/l range, it’s a classy, elegant, and very pure bottle of bubbly.

This year’s release beautiful to look at with a bright brass color, great transparency and shine, and very, very, tiny and persistent buttles.  The aromas are ultra-pure, featuring fresh bread dough, apricot, peach, pear and spice with hints of fresh hazelnut for complexity.  The flavors are complex, too, with fresh lemon, stone fruit, key lime, and green apple fruit notes with accents of salty (not sweet) caramel, toast and spice.  The texture is very fine and sliky and the finish very, very long, with fresh lemon pulp and salty hazelnut notes lingering on and on.  Enjoy it right now for its citrusy freshness or let it rest for 1-4 years to pick up more ginger, baked pear, and toasty, nutty, complexity.

A blend 65% Pinot Noir from Verzenay and 35% Chardonnay from the Cote de Blancs.  Delicious!

"Light, limpid gold. Ripe pear, peach pit, honey and buttered toast on the deeply perfumed nose and in the mouth. In a plush, weighty style, with good back end thrust and subtle smoke and anise nuances emerging on the back half. Closes on a chewy note, with lingering spiciness and a touch of bitter quinine."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

"This elegant version features an expressive profile that rides the delicate, lacy mousse, enlivened by finely knit, vibrant acidity. Abundant spice and graphite notes accent a creamy mix of glazed apple, honey, brioche and lemon parfait. Lightly chalky on the lingering finish."Wine Spectator 92 points

Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes De Vrigny Brut NV Product #17957 (In Stock)
Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes De Vrigny Brut NV Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes De Vrigny Brut NV

Stunning 100% Pinot Meunier aged 3 years on the lees.

"The NV Brut Premier Cru Les Vignes de Vrigny is bright, finely sculpted and chiseled throughout. This is an especially vibrant version of the Les Vignes de Vrigny, Egly-Ouriet's 100% Pinot Meunier. Candied lemon, chamomile, dried pear, almonds, white flowers and mint are all nicely delineated. With time in the glass, the wine softens nicely through the mid-palate and finish. Classy and understated to the core, the Les Vignes de Vrigny is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. In this release, the Vignes de Vrigny is 50% 2011, 25% 2010, 25% 2009, aged in equal parts tank and neutral oak."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"The NV Brut Premier Cru les Vignes de Vrigny is 100% Pinot Meunier from 40- to 50-year-old vines in Vrigny. The youngest release is based on the 2011 vintage and 50% of reserve wines. It is clear and spicy on the nose, where red apples are displayed and a great purity and elegance is indicated. This is well-structured, tension-filled and finesse-full Meunier with great purity, grip and aging potential."Wine Advocate 91 points

Just a lovely wine from what is shaping up to be an excellent 2007 vintage, Eric Rodez's Millesime 2007 is 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay, with all but 10% fermented and aged in barrel. After 7 years on the lees, it's a shimmery gold color with tiny, precise, bubbles.  Big aromas of orchard and stone fruit with accents of fresh cut hay, brioche, and toasted  nut lead to a precise, crisp, palate of pear, citrus, nuts, toast, and more.  Rich, but not heavy, and very long, this delicious dry Champagne is lovely now and will continue to improve for years.

"The VC brand ambassador, the NV Brut Yellow Label (an assemblage of 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier) contains 35% reserve wines. On the nose, ripe and intense (yellow-fleshed) fruit aromas intermix with a very nice maturity from the reserve wines. This is a medium-bodied, yet round and full-flavored Brut. It possesses biscuit and nutty flavors, and a nice freshness and complexity in the intense, aromatic finish. Indeed, this is very delicate and impressively good."Wine Advocate 89 points

Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition

This stunning Champabage blends 70% Pinot Noir/30% Chardonnay from 3 Grand Cru sites in Ambonnay, Verzenay and Bouzy with about half from 2011 and the rest 2010, 2009 and 2008. Some of the base wine fermented in barrel for richness, supporting low (under 5 g/l) dossage levels.  This release was disgourged in May 2016 and will certainly be another in a long string of 92-94 point winners.  Galloni's review of last Fall's release remains on point.

"The NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition is all class. Suave, silky and expressive on the palate, the NV Grand Cru Tradition is quite pretty, with lovely brightness and freshness to balance the wine's inherent richness. Red stone fruits, hazelnuts, white flowers and mint are all pushed forward in this deceptively understated Champagne from Egly-Ouriet."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Egly-Ouriet Nv Extra Brut V. P. Grand Cru Product #17955 (In Stock)
Egly-Ouriet Nv Extra Brut V. P. Grand Cru Egly-Ouriet Nv Extra Brut V. P. Grand Cru

"VP" stands for Vieillissement Prolongé - or extra long aging in bottle.  Here that means more than 6 years of time to develop toasty richness and need essentially no dossage. A masterpiece.

"The NV Extra Brut Grand Cru V.P. (Vieillissement Prolongé), Egly-Ouriet's from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay, is stellar. A towering, deeply expressive wine, the V.P. possesses stunning depth to match its spherical, textured personality. As is the custom here, the V.P. spent 76 months on its lees, yet it remains vibrant, poised and deeply refreshing. A host of chalk, white pepper, dried rose petal and red stone fruits wrap around the intense finish. Aging in oak shapes the wine beautifully here. What a gorgeous Champagne this is. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. "  Vinous (Galloni) 95 points

"The NV Grand Cru V P Extra-Brut (VP stands for Viellissement Prolongé or extended ageing) is an assemblage of approximately 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, and it is not disgorged any earlier than after six years. The youngest cuvée is based on 2008 (60%) and 2006 (40%), and was disgorged in December 2015. Clear, deep and nutty on the nose, this is a rich yet pure and fresh, straight and firmly structured blend that is still very young; it will gain further complexity over the years.The grapes for this cuvée are sourced in the grand crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay."Wine Advocate 92 points

Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Millesime 2006 Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Millesime 2006

Everyone agrees on this one - as always one of the great wines of Ambonnay.

"Another standout, the 2006 Brut Millesime is stellar. This is an especially broad, creamy Champagne built on textural richness. Lemon oil, white flowers, smoke, almonds and baked apple are some of the signatures. Rich and resonant on the palate, the 2006 will drink beautifully for another decade or so, even if it could benefit from a little more time in bottle. Egly's 2006 is a pure pleasure to taste today."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

"The 2006 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is a really rich and intense, yet also a pure and fresh cuvée based on 60/70% barrel-fermented Pinot Noir and 30/40% barrel-fermented Chardonnay. It is a full-bodied, concentrated and extremely well-structured cuvée with a grippy, long and persistent finish. The dosage is two grams per liter. There are lovely fresh berry flavors on the nose."Wine Advocate 94 points

"Ripe fruit and floral notes herald this mouthwatering Champagne, with nectarine, gingersnap biscuit, orchard blossom and anise notes carried through the fine, chalky mousse. Well-knit and vibrant, featuring a long finish of smoke and spice."Wine Spectator 94 points

Named for Champagne's most famous widow - and inventor of everything from Vintage Champagne to riddling racks - this is very grand indeed.  In 2006, it's a blend of 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay aged 8 years on the lees in bottle before disgorgement in early 2015.  A powerful, rich, wine with loads of potential in front of it.

"Bright and graceful, this seamlessly knits a subtle streak of smoke-tinged minerality with flavors of almond financier, poached pear, candied kumquat and crème de cassis, focused by vibrant acidity and a refined, creamy mousse. Disgorged January 2014. Drink now through 2030."Wine Spectator 94 points

"The 2006 Dom Pérignon comes from a very rich vintage with an early ripeness that brought a lot of aromatic maturity. The white-golden prestige cuvée contains a bit more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir and opens with a deep and seductive, pretty accessible nose with intense yet fresh fruit aromas of pineapples, with peaches and tangerines. Lively and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, unusually aromatic and fruity DP with a long and tension-filled expression."Wine Advocate 96 points
