Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV
40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier): Pale gold. Spice- and mineral-accented orchard and pit fruits on the intensely perfumed nose, with hints of toasty lees and brioche adding complexity. Sappy, penetrating and floral on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon, pear and melon flavors braced by a smoky mineral underpinning. Closes spicy and very long, leaving a sexy honeysuckle note behind.” 91 Josh Raynolds.
 
£150 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£165 market price).
£24 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
Gosset Brut Excellence NV
“(45% Pinot Noir, 36% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier; 11 g/l dosage; L351 1114): Light gold. Ripe pear and white peach aromas are lifted by a gingery element, with a subtle floral nuance emerging with air. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering plump pit fruit and melon flavors and a bitter kick of orange pith on the back half. That dosage is showing itself. Closes smooth and gently spicy, with good fruity persistence.” 88 Antonio Galloni.
 
£160 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£200 market price).
£25 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
R de Ruinart Brut NV
“Dom Ruinart's NV Brut is an attractive light-weight wine laced with citrus, lemon peel and flowers, all which come together in a delicate, feminine style best suited to near-term drinking. The straight NV is rarely exiting here. This is Lot AES4AB.” 88 Antonio Galloni.
 
£200 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£240 market price).
£30 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
Jacquesson Cuvee 733 Degorgement Tardif Brut NV
“The Cuvée 733 Degorgement Tardif is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. An additional few years on the lees has mellowed the flavors and given the wine gorgeous textural depth. Apricot jam, honey, truffle, wild flowers, mint, brioche and orange zest add the final layers of nuance. I would prefer to drink the 733 over the next handful of years, while the wine retains a measure of freshness, as the aromatics are already a touch forward and developed. Overall, this is a strong showing for a wine based on the 2005 vintage. The 733 was bottled with 22% reserve wines. The blend is 52% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Noir and 24% Pinot Meunier. Disgorged September 2013. Dosage is 2.5 grams/liter.” 91 Antonio Galloni.
 
£315 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£490 market price).
£50 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
Krug Grande Cuvee Brut NV
“The NV Grande Cuvée is absolutely stellar. This is one of the very best Grande Cuvées I can remember tasting. The flavors are bright, focused and beautifully delineated throughout, all of which make me think the wine will age well for many, many years. Lemon peel, white flowers, crisp pears, smoke and crushed rocks race across the palate in a vibrant, tense Champagne that epitomizes finesse. This release is based on the 2005 vintage and was disgorged in winter 2012/2013. The blend is: 44% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 19% Meunier. Krug ID: 113001.” 94 Antonio Galloni.
 
£620 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£650 market price).
£100 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
 
Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires Brut 1995
“The 1995 Brut Blanc des Millenaires shows just how compelling this often overlooked vintage can be. Layers of lemon, pastry spices, crushed rocks and savory herbs literally jump from the glass in this exquisite, perfumed, beautifully delineated Champagne. The 1995 shows lovely flavor complexity and nuance from its extended time in bottle, yet it also retains plenty of freshness, verve and acidity. This is a great showing from Charles Heidsieck. The 1995 was made before the tenure of the house's current team, headed by CEO Cécile Bonnefond. It will be very interesting to see what develops at this historic property over the coming years.”  95 Antonio Galloni.
 
£480 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£550 market price).
£75 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
Amour de Deutz 2005
“White truffle, herbs, orange blossom and spices are some of the notes that take shape in the 2005 Amour de Deutz. There is good nuance in the glass, but the 2005 is also a bit forward, with slight hints of greenness and oxidation, which along with its mid-weight structure, suggest it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. I also miss some of the energy that is present in the very best years. The 2005 is 100% Chardonnay, 60% Avize, 35% Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and 5% Villers-Marmery.” 91 Antonio Galloni.
£590 per case of 6x75cl duty paid plus VAT (£706 market price).
£90 per loose bottle duty paid plus VAT
 
 
Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1995
“Thrown in as a ringer, the 1995 Clos d’Ambonnay is a real treat to taste next to the 1996. In particular, tasting both vintages together shows that that 1995 is the more complete of these two first releases of Krug’s single-vineyard Champagne from Ambonnay. Finely-cut fruit, expressive aromatics and exceptional textural finesse are the signatures. This is another fabulous showing from the 1995 Clos d’Ambonnay.” 98 Antonio Galloni.
 
£1,600 per bottle duty paid plus VAT (£1,880 market price).
 
 
Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998
“The 1998 Brut Clos d'Ambonnay appears to have arrived at an early plateau of maturity. Hints of white truffle, orange peel, licorice, honey and roasted almonds are woven together in a super-appealing mélange of aromas, flavors and textures.”  95 Antonio Galloni.
 
£1,450 per bottle duty paid plus VAT (£1,600 market price).
