Egly Ouriet "V.P." Grand Cru Champagne NV 2

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2016) "One of the many highlights in this range, the NV Extra Brut Grand Cru V.P. (Vieillissement Prolongé) bristles with energy from start to finish. Two important vintages (2008 and 2006) come together in this release. Lemon oil, chamomile, pear, hazelnut, acacia and wild flowers open up in the glass, but it is the wine's interplay of power and freshness that is totally beguiling. There is so much to like. The current release is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, 60% 2008 and 40% 2006. Disgorged November, 2015. Dosage is 2 grams per liter."

Henri Billiot Fils "Cuvee Laetitia" Brut Grand Cru Brut Champagne NV

94+ Our Score
(1/2018) This wonderfully unique and significant bottling hails entirely from the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay in the Montagne de Reims - known for its powerful fruit. Scarcely have we experienced as ripe and supple of a Champagne, the mindbender here being that the cuvee is composed primarily (70%) of wine from a perpetual reserve solera with vintages dating back to 1983. 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir. Ripeness is the key word in understanding this immediately delicious, but layered experience. Ripe green and red apples are highlighted by laser-like candied lemon, with a strong undercurrent of fine chalkiness all the while. There's a balance of length, power and finesse that goes beyond description. If there can be at once a connoisseur's Champagne that is at the same time a sumptuous, hedonist's Champagne (a category that is painfully fleeting), this is the one. Hard to resist but cellar for complexity, this is shockingly youthful and primary for a wine with so much reserve stock.

Bollinger Rose Champagne NV

(6/29/2018) "Bollinger's NV Brut Rose is a beautiful pink Champagne composed of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier. The wine gets its noble rose color from 6% of added red wine from vineyards in Verzenay and Ay. Bread rolls, a hint of mocha and very fine red fruit aromas on the beautifully pure, fresh and perfumed nose lead to a highly delicate and fruity palate with a silky texture and filigreed structure. This is an aromatic, perfectly balanced and intense Rose of great elegance and finesse. The finish is clear and fresh but also intense and highly stimulating in its subversive salinity. This is a great Rose, and although it can surely age, I would always miss the delicacy and perfume of its youth!"

Etienne Doue "Cuvee Selection" Brut Champagne NV

91 Our Score
(10/2016) The Étienne Doué is back and, for the second season in a row, it is truly outstanding. This tiny grower-producer makes only a few thousand cases per year of this 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir Champagne. Look for flavors of baked apple and pear, brisk citrus, chalky minerality and light toast along with a fine and fresh bead that dances on the palate creating a wonderful creamy texture.

Egly Ouriet "Tradition" Brut Grand Cru Champagne NV

93 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2013) "The NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition, Egly-Ouriet's entry-level Champagne, is terrific. Rich, burnished and beautifully expressive, the Grand Cru Tradition flows across the palate with succulent yellow stone fruits, spices, dried flowers and rosemary. The broad, resonant style is hugely appealing and so typical of the Egly-Ouriet house style. This is a great showing. The Grand Cru Tradition is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, all from sites in Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. The bottle was disgorged in November 2012 after having spent 52 months on the lees, an exceedingly long time for a straight NV Champagne."

Remi Leroy Brut Rose Champagne NV

93 Our Score
(8/2017) Remi Leroy is among the new generation of growers emerging throughout the Champagne region. For decades his family has sold their grapes to a local Negociant. A few years ago though Remi convinced his parents to let him personally farm a few hectares of their vines. He slowly began transitioning those holdings over toward organic and is making some truly impressive fizz. Situated in the Aube, this is Pinot Noir country. His Brut Rose bottling is truly beautiful, with loads of fresh flowering watermelon, cherries and cranberries. The purity of red fruits is delicious, and has just enough earthy backbone to add another layer of depth. This bottle went down very fast when it was tasted.

Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne NV

(11/15/2017) "This creamy Champagne shows fine balance, along with vibrant acidity that provides a juicy frame for the ripe strawberry, ground ginger and white peach flavors. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2020."

Henri Billiot Brut Rose Grand Cru NV

94 Our Score
(12/2018) Disgorged 10/31/2018. As with many Champagne growers in the Theise portfolio, the wines of Billiot seem to be moving towards more energy and lift, with potentially lower dosages. This latest batch of Rose is absolutely wonderful, blending 80% Pinot Noir with 20% Chardonnay, with 50% of the assemblage from 2015, with 25% each 2014 and 2013. No Malo here, as always, with all fruit sourced from Laetitia Billiot's holdings in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. Ripe and tangy strawberry fruits are delicious, long and super fresh.

Jean Lallement "Green Label" Brut Grand Cru Champagne NV

93+ Our Score
(12/2018) Disgorged 11/30/2017. Quite likely the best Lallement we've tasted in the last 7 years, this latest batch of "green label" is delicious, blending 80% Pinot Noir with 20% Chardonnay, all from Grand Cru Verzenay and Verzy. So incredibly concentrated! Here's Terry's ** take..." Even allowing for fresh disgorgement this is superb, almost delicate for Lallement, but classically silky, very long, chervil and tatsoi; silvery and cool and with a haunting delicate finale of smoke, quince and herbs, at once both earthy and ethereal."

Henri Billiot "Brut Reserve" Grand Cru Ambonnay NV

93+ Our Score
(11/2017) A delicious release from Laetitia Billiot, a woman that is kicking serious Champagne butt in her Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, producing less than 4000 cases annually! This wine is dominated by Pinot Noir, with smaller amounts of Chardonnay, and is based on 2014, with some 2012, 2013 and 2015. With no malolactic, 11 grams of residual sugar and a hint of skin contact, this is a generous and delicious sparkling wine with flavors of baked pear and almond butter, and brisk tension. Disgorged February 2017.
