2002 Krug Vintage    "Charged with a swath of citrus and stone fruits, it has seamless purity, generosity and complexity. Thanks to precision vinification, there isn't a hair out of place on a palate of outstanding length" - James Halliday, 98 points; "It is chock-full of acidity and life, is really muscular and much more intellectua... clearly a champagne for long ageing - like many other 2002s - but much more backward than any I can think of immediately. There is nothing in excess; a great example of the Krug art of assemblage... I look forward very much to following the development of this exceptional wine." Jancis Robinson - 19 out of 20 points; "What aromatics - spring flowers from well-sited Pinot Meunier, and exoticism in the Chardonnay. The beating heart of the wine is powerful, poised and very complex Pinot Noir, still biding its time to majestically unfold. Magnificent" - Decanter, 98 points  $450.00 per bottle

1996 Krug Vintage    "An utterly extraordinary wine, as perfect in its way as was the Romanee-Conti... Krug regards the '28, '90 and '96 as its three finest wines of the 20th century... The '96 Krug has incredible intensity but it is the length of the palate and the persistence of the aftertaste that take it into the vinous stratosphere" - James Halliday, 100 points"; A powerful, majestic Champagne. Deep and compelling" - Wine Spectator, 99 points  $750.00 per bottle

2008 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs      "It has exquisite freshness and balance, the bouquet filled by scents of white flowers, the palate with pink grapefruit in a glittering necklace of acidity. Will fill you with joy tonight, wonderment five years hence. I've bought my share" - James Halliday, 97 points & Top 100 Wines of 2015; "The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish... The finish is lovely aromatic and intense, but also clear, fresh, firm and absolutely stimulating. This is a great Blanc de Blancs" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 points; "This is heart-stoppingly good, which makes the decision all the more difficult as to when to drink it. Guzzle it all up now or drink it slowly over the next 15 years? If you are going to drink it now, you'll find a fabulous fusion of almonds, white flowers, cream, hay, brioche and lemon sherbet. It's also superbly balanced, bright, racy and dazzlingly long" - Decanter, 94 points; "From a strong chardonnay vintage... The palate has the same layered, discreet complexity. Flavors of crisp lemon and white peach run smooth amid gently piercing, fine acidity. Terrific balance and depth here" - James Suckling, 94 points   $139.95 per bottle

2002 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs      "Great finesse on palate - refined, delicate yet tremendously intense and fresh, miraculously so for its age. Great balance, harmony, length. The finish lingers on and on. Magnificent character, maturity and length. Finesse and focus" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "Palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit flavors show outstanding depth and energy, picking up chalky mineral and spice notes with air. Strikingly concentrated and precise wine with strong finishing punch and noteworthy persistence. This concentrated, deftly balanced Champagne is built for a long, graceful evolution" - Stephen Tanzer, 95 points   $165.00 per bottle

1998 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill      "Its quality is instantaneously obvious, full of power and grace... fine, silky citrus and nectarine fruit which caresses the palate into paroxysms of joy" - James Halliday's Top 100 of 2008, 97 points; "Shows great aging potential" - Wine News, 96 points   $265.00 per bottle

1999 Pol Roger Vintage Brut       "When it comes to value for money this was the winner by a very strong margin... there is every facet of elegance, finesse and distinction that you might expect… this is one glorious and affordable luxury that you simply must not live without" - Matthew Jukes; "An outstanding vintage from a house so popular in Australia. ... Velvety texture, mid-palate creaminess, impeccable balance and crisp, natural acidity to finish" - Peter Forrestal; "Possesses notable harmony and balance, with terrific length and a long, sweet finish. Simply put, this is gorgeous stuff" - Robert Parker, 91 points   $120.00 per bottle

2008 Veuve ClicquoReset Vintage rve    $95.00 per bottle

Great depth and detail of flavour, marvellous mouthfeel and long, long finish of great harmony. Superb" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "A vibrant version that shows lovely harmony, swathing the palate in satiny texture and a delicate mesh of poached pear, chopped almond, biscuit and white raspberry flavors. A lasting note of smoky mineral echoes on the finish" - Wine Spectator, 93 points $99.95 per bottle
