Marc Hebrart "Special Club" Brut Champagne 2013

Winemaker's Notes
The most revered Champagne expert in America, importer Terry Theise, has declared this Champagne nearly perfect! Here's what he had to say about this truly special wine, "There have been great ones over the years - 2002, 2008, 2012 - but none as otherworldly as this, the most exquisite young Champagne I have ever tasted. Deg. 8/29/17, it is quite different from the '12, but just as sublime. 2012 croons, and this one whispers. '12 leaps like a gazelle; '13 flaps its gossamer white wings. '12 is clearly and tangibly great; '13 is ethereally and hauntingly great. '13 is a little like 2008, but with less prominent acidity; still, it's in the family of high cirrus-y skies with mares' tails and ice-rainbows. I wish I had four plusses to give it. Each pure beautiful element of Champagne is carefully arranged to be examined and identified, until they all melt together into Pleiades of nuance and structure. It's an ivory-pale bride, shining with bliss and love, even through her gauzy veil. This weightless masterpiece is 30% PN from Mareuil (Faubourg d'Enfer, Croix Blanche, Pruche and Cotes), 25% Ay (Cheuzelles, Pierre Robert, and Le Leon) 35% CH old-vines Mareuil (Beauregard, Ramonette and Buisson Saint Loup) and 10% CH Oiry and Chouilly (Justice and Montaigu). It is also a Coeur de Cuvee."

Vilmart "Grand Cellier d'Or" Premier Cru Brut Champagne 2013

Importer Theise says of Vilmart's wines, which are arguably some of the greatest in all of Champagne, "This estate has undergone a subtle but profound ascension from the earthbound to the celestial." And he goes on to say, "I wonder if a year from now we'll be talking about '13 the way we did about 2008 a few years ago. Because this is looking more and more like magic. This wine is lively and gushes the fragrance of mirabelles, with its typical sandalwood aromas arriving on the mid-palate and into the finish. Classy, buoyant, almost comically long."

Coessens "Largiller" Blanc de Noir Brut Aube 2013

94+ Our Score
(11/2018) Jerome farms a total of 3.36 hectares in Ville-sur-Arce in the most southerly portion of Champagne, the Aube. From selected parcels of his monopole cru of Largilliers, this is a vintage wine (though not indicated as such) coming all from the 2013 harvest. Though the soil and location are more akin to Chablis than Champagne, the climatic conditions that favor Jerome's signature grape, Pinot Noir. Any extra grapes are sold to the legendary Jacques Selosse. This is a spellbinding, singular Champagne of huge impact. "Stunner" and "Profound" graced our tasting notes. It is ripe, with balanced red-tinged fruit balanced out by a sexy, smoky gunflint and saline mineral edge. There is an intense, waxy, weighty mouthfeel that is reminiscent of still whites from the Rhone. Pulsing with natural, vital energy and lifted by a chiseled, chalky verve that screams Champagne (or Chablis!). This is unique Champagne that would pair perfectly the richest preparation of scallops imaginable.

Weingut Knauss "Zero" Wurttemberg Pinot Noir (2019) Brut 2013

93 Our Score
(3/2019) This special release from Weingut Knauss' 2013 Pinot Noir Brut "Zero" spent extra time on the lees compared to the last release and was recently disgorged in 2019. Wow, did that extra time add some serious complexity! The wine is bright and very well balanced, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, crisp and clean orchard fruits, deep minerality and an outstanding, crazy-long finish. Grab this highly limited sparkler now while you can and stash a bottle or two for your next New Year's Eve party!

Stony Brook Vineyards "The Lyle" Coastal Region Sparkling Chardonnay 2013

Winemaker's Notes
"Fresh citrus on the nose, with a hint of brioche from the extended lees contact. Lovely balance between brightness and richness on the palate, followed by a long, dry finish, allowing this Cap Classique to be cellared for many years to come. A wonderful wine to accompany oysters or to be enjoyed on its own for that special celebration."

Ravines "Argetsinger Vineyard" Finger Lakes Sparkling Riesling 2013

93 Vinous, Kelli White
(7/2016) "Vibrant pale gold. Made in the methode Champenoise and kept on its lees for two years, this lovely wine combines the two things the Finger Lakes does best: Riesling and sparkling. For this vintage, 2013, no still Argetsinger Riesling was made, as winemaker Morten Hallgren thought that the balance of the fruit at harvest time was more befitting a sparkling style. The high-toned, aromatic nose offers scents of lemon rind, sea air, chalk, and a subtle floral accent. The palate is bracing but balanced, with terrific depth, persistent, medium-sized bubbles and a super long, salty finish. 15 grams per liter residual sugar. Disgorged March 2016. Drinking Window: 2016 - 2026."

Clos Lentiscus Brut Nature Rose 2013

89+ Our Score
(12/2018) This unique Spanish sparkler comes from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the Penedes. The wine is produced from 100% Samso (a.k.a. Carignan) and is aged for over 4 years on the lees. In the glass, the wine has a slightly pink and orange hue with beautiful aromas of deep red, blue and purple fruits. The palate is soft and creamy with a long finish filled with delicious minerality. Who knew sparkling Carignan could be this much fun!
