Bollinger R.D. 2004, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

*Champagne of the Year* -"Time has graced this wine, proving the value of Bollinger’s policy of long aging on the lees followed by prompt release after disgorgement. This RD (Recently Disgorged) 2004 is a joyous wine, staunch, cold and powerful at first, transforming to fresh fruit shadowed by darker tones of barrel fermentation. As it opens in the glass, revealing racy energy, a range of floral pear and apple flavors emerge, resonant with a sense of limestone capturing the sun and reflecting it back in pale power. Enjoy this over the course of an evening as its presence shifts, providing varied perspectives on a great Champagne." 98 Points Wine & Spirits

 "Fermented in oak barrels and aged under natural corks for almost 13 years, Bollinger's 2004 R. D. Extra Brut blends 66% Pinot Noir with 34% Chardonnay from 16 crus, 88% of which are classified as Grand Cru. The wine opens with a very clear, deep, rich and aromatic but also pure and mineral-fresh nose of crushed rocks, cherries, brioche, pain aux raisin, white nougat, chalk and ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits. Highly elegant and complex on the weightless yet persistent and salty palate, this is an intense, densely woven, firmly structured yet elegant, beautifully refined and refreshing "recent disgorgement" (February 2018) that reveals just a kiss of oxidative flavors that adds even more complexity. A great Champagne on its way to improve over many years in the bottle. Tasted June 2018." 97 Points Robert Parker

Herbert Beaufort Brut Réserve Les Facettes NV, 0.75L
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay from Bouzy, Champagne

"The current bottling in the market of Herbert Beaufort “les Facettes” non-vintage Brut Réserve was disgorged in June of 2018. The cépages of this cuvée is seventy percent pinot noir and thirty percent chardonnay, with the vins clairs fermented and raised in stainless steel (without going through malo). I do not have exact dosage levels, but it is close to Extra Brut for certain. The wine offers up a bright bouquet of apple, bread dough, lovely, chalky minerality, dried flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and still youthfully structured, with a good core and fine mineral drive, elegant mousse and a long, promising finish. This is easy to drink today, but it is still a puppy and will repay at least a few years in the cellar." 91 Points John Gilman, View From the Cellar

"Deep pinot-driven presence is the first and lasting impression. Power with control. Superfine bead, bread and spiced biscuits, candied ripe red fruits and a sense of tight-knit complexity. Some grapefruit, lemon pith & gently flinty notes too - impressive nose. In the mouth it is rich, powerful, mouth-filling and flavorsome with a core of the same biscuity red fruit flavor, savory nutty notes and a wrap of assertive, persistent acidity that holds rich powerful flavor deep and focused whilst maintaining a polished, gently creamy texture. Long chalky bread and biscuit finish. A superb pinot-driven vintage." 97 Points James Suckling

Domaine de la Taille aux Loups (Jacky Blot) Montlouis Petillant Triple Zéro NV, 0.75L
Chenin Blanc from Montlouis, Loire

"Triple Zéro is one of the wines Jacky Blot developed in the early 1990s, after he switched from wine broker to Loire winemaker. It’s conceived as a natural, bottle-fermented sparkling wine, made from a careful selection of clean grapes from vines more than 50 years old, ripe enough so that he doesn’t need to chaptalize (the first instance of zero added sugar referred to in the name). The wine spontaneously ferments in old barriques, then he bottles it when the residual sugar in the juice has fallen to 12 grams per liter, so he doesn’t need to add any liqueur de tirage to feed its fermentation in bottle (the second instance of zero added sugar). He leaves it on its lees for 24 months in bottle before clarifying it through riddling, then disgorges the lees and tops off the bottle with some of the same wine rather than any dosage (the third zero). No surprise that the wine is completely dry. The first impression is brisk limestone and tart lemon acidity before it opens to something lush and delicious, fragrant with red spice and white fruit. This will age well, or serve as an aperitif for oysters or a dinner wine with roast fish." 92 Points Wine & Spirits

Patrick Bottex Bugey-Cerdon La Cueille NV, 0.75L
Gamay / Poulsard from Bugey-Cerdon, Savoie

"Dry, crisp, fresh and incredibly fragrant, this sparkling wine is a terrific bargain. The good news is there are around 4,000 cases of it, although I do not know how much is imported by Kermit Lynch. Drink it over the next year. Kermit Lynch is one of the most meticulous importers in terms of shipping wines properly, but it would be nice to see a vintage, release, or bottling date on these bottles.

This cuvee may qualify as the “wine bargain of the year.” A Champagne-like sparkling rose from the largely forgotten area of Bugey (which only received appellation status in 2009), this low alcohol (8%) offering is made from 90% Gamay and 10% Poulsard (an indigenous grape of the region)." 90 Points Robert M.
