Champagne in Various Sizes, Vintages, and Prices

Champagne simply makes life more festive. Whether enjoying it over a meal or just popping and pouring, we have you covered with our festive selection of bubbles.  Our selection of champagnes across vintages, from the mature to fresh, whether blend, Blanc de Blancs or Rosé, in regular size, magnum and double magnum for any budget. 
Champagne Benoit Dehu: La Rue des Noyers 2014
This textured single-vineyard Champagne is from one of our favorite cult growers, Benoit Déhu, who crafts impressive cuvées from 100% Meunier grape. Made from low yields with low or no dosage, this results in intense and vibrant Champagnes that call for food!   

Billecart-Salmon: Le Clos Saint Hilaire, Blanc de Noirs Brut 1996
One of the finest Blanc de Noirs Champagnes you can find, this mature 1996 from the famed walled Clos St Hilaire vineyard is showing its extraordinary ability to age with vinous generosity and complexity: Ripe apples and pears, wet stones and delicate white flowers.

Bollinger: R.D. 1976
The R.D., which stands for Recently Disgorged, brings another dimension with added complexity from longer time on lees, in Magnum, this is just so fresh and profound! 

Roederer, Louis: Cristal Vinotheque 1995
Cristal’s Vinotheque is a later release after 20 years spent in the house’s cellars, this stability in aging and provenance usually results in a fresher and finer example of the vintage, here it is extremely fine in balance and texture! 

Dom Perignon, Rose 1998
A rosé Champagne with some maturity is a unique experience with its red and white fruit aromas intertwining. This Dom Perignon 1998 is a perfect choice having aged gracefully and remaining just so fresh in 3L! 

Krug 1996
This Krug 96 drinks so well right now, the wine has come together and is incredibly vinous with notes of citrus and figs, hazelnuts, brioche, and a mineral touch on the finish.

Krug: Clos du Mesnil 2002
Krug’s Clos du Mesnil has left me with some of the most memorable vinous moments, this Blanc de Blancs from the walled Clos du Mesnil is the pinnacle of single-vineyard Champagne to me

Salon: Le Mesnil 1996
The magical Champagnes of Salon’s Le Mesnil are the apotheosis of refinement, this Blanc de Blancs 1996 is absolutely mesmerizing, with such a balance between power and grace and what a length!  

Savart: Mont Benoit 1er Cru 2014
Le Mont Benoit is my favorite single vineyard from immensely talented grower Frédéric Savart, this premier cru is fine and complex with spices, ginger, bright citrus notes, smoky, precise and delicate.
