‘Come quickly brothers, I’m drinking stars’ - Dom Pérignon, upon his tasting among the first successful bottlings of Champagne as we know it. Champagne, in these modern times, is arguably the most scintillating of all sparkling wines, the near-weightless beverage that would raise any occasion from the ordinary to the memorable.

Champagne Le Mesnil Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Le Mesnil Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

Produced of 100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards near Le Mesnil sur Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, holy ground for lovers of the finest Champagne. This bottling represents some ⅔ of the production of the very well-run cooperative that is Champagne Le Mesnil. Brilliant white-gold in color, this Brut Blanc de Blancs has a lovely harmony of elements, fresh and most enticing and inviting aromas suggestive of melon, cool of the morning grape plucked from the vine, buttered biscuit and flower pollen; nice medium-full mousse, then expansive on the tongue and supremely flavorful, leaving crisp, fresh and refreshed with a chalky dry finish just begging another pull. Delicious!

Pol Roger Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve Pol Roger Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve

Founded in 1849, Pol Roger is one of only a few Grande Marque Champagne houses that remain family owned and operated. Pol Roger Brut White Foil is produced from the first pressing only of fruit from Premier and Grand Cru Vineyards, about ⅓ each Chardonnay from Cote des Blancs, Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims, and Pinot Meunier from Vallee de la Marne and Petite Valle d'Epernay: pale gold in color with an ultra fine bead; flowery, delicately toasty aroma; creamy textured, then supremely balanced on the tongue with a dry, well-rounded and harmonious finish that so elegantly cajoles another pull. We find it delectable. And, if it is true that a Champagne house be judged by the quality and consistency of their House Brut, then the house of Pol Roger, in our humble estimation, ranks among those at the very top.

2002 Pol Roger Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill

Light yellow-gold. Deeply pitched aromas of poached pear, fresh fig, orange custard and honey, with smoky mineral and buttered toast nuances adding complexity. Stains the palate with ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are given spine and focus by juicy acidity. Closes taut, sappy and extremely long, with an echo of toastiness and wonderful clarity. All Grand Cru fruit. Rated 94. - Josh Raynolds,, December, 2014

There's a sense of quiet elegance and grace to this harmonious Champagne. Refined and lacy in texture, with finely wrought acidity lending focus and length to the spice- and graphite-laced flavors of ripe apricot and blackberry, lemon meringue pie, chopped almond and briny mineral. Drink now through 2029. 500 cases imported. Rated 95. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator December 15, 2014

Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs

On the 1st of September, 1729, and shortly following a royal decree allowing Champagne wines to be transported in bottles, the House of Ruinart was officially established, making it the very first of Champagne houses to come into existence. The House of Ruinart is today renowned as a specialist with Chardonnay and their superb Blanc de Blancs is produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Luminous light golden in color; both fresh and complex aromas suggest wine-scented crayères, ripe citrus fruits, just baking brioche dough and a little something indescribable more; on the tongue, this is une Champagne très raffiné, fine delicately creamy textured, yet dreamy rich and toasty; elegant, harmonious, round and sumptuous, it just fills the mouth with joyous and generous bubbles. Indeed, Ruinart do have a way with Chardonnay!

Krug Brut Grande Cuvée

Krug Grande Cuvée is the signature wine of Champagne Krug and, to be sure, a considerable demonstration of the skill and the intuitive craftsmanship requisite in the making of the very finest of sparkling wines. Krug Grande Cuvée is composed from as many as 50 vins clairs from 20 to 25 crus and from six to ten different vintages, a work carried on by the very talented cellarmaster and a chosen few in the Krug inner sanctum, the end result of which is a shimmering sparkling wine, seemingly effortlessly balancing richness and freshness, power and finesse. Brilliant golden in color with aromas that are deep and profound, there’s a fine toasty quality, for sure, a suggestion of citrus preserve and perhaps a fine wildflower honey with nuance of baking spice and, yes, there is surely a sense of grandeur at play here; the wine just struts out onto the tongue with presence and power, yet perfectly balanced and proportioned, like a vinous version of the big bang, bursting and expanding with complex flavors and, as it has so well been put, "finishing in a final flourish of freshness leaving one longing for more." If there were one name in Champagne that gets the tongues of our discerning Champagne-loving clientèle (and ours, as well) most atwitter, it’s Krug! Regularly $175.00 the bottle, on sale now at:

Delamotte Brut

The elegant mineral style of the venerable house of Delamotte is based on a preponderance of Chardonnay from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Oger together with Pinot noir from Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne and Ambonnay, with just a dash of Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne. Aged on the lees for 30 to 36 months, Delamotte Brut receives only a slight dosage. Delicately toasty, ultra-fresh aromas suggest flesh of green apple and crisp pear, hazelnut cream, with hints of white flowers and lemon peel; a joyous equilibrious mouthfilling frothy feel on the tongue, at once powerful and harmonious, mineral and just toasty, with an agreeable freshness and potency of flavor that carry on long and oh so pleasingly on the tongue.

Long a favorite of our discerning clientèle, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is characterized by its freshness and exuberance, its vibrancy and expressiveness.
