Deal Alert: A 92 pt Champagne for $26.95
July 3, 2012 High End Values
You can’t buy bad Champagne at this price let alone a highly rated example that I’ve personally enjoyed on several occasions and certified as a 5 Star, A+++, 90+ point Nickel and Dime Wine value! The NV Duval-Leroy Brut Champagne has received a good bit of press since its 92 point Wine Spectator rating so you may have heard about this one before. But I’m quite confident you haven’t seen it at this price because LA Wine Co. has it for the lowest in the country according to Wine Searcher. As a point of reference on how good this deal is, Wine Spectator gave the famous Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, a wine I enjoy, 90 points. It sells for $40-50. Furthermore, the Wine Advocate who is notoriously hard on Champagne gave this 88+ and the Veuve 87. Any way you slice it, this is better.
This is a case-worthy value if I’ve ever seen one and with $25 case shipping it’s a total no-brainer.

Wine Spectator 92 points
“An elegant wine, with a delicate grain and subtle, citrusy acidity. Offers flavors of yellow apple, clementine and licorice snap, with hints of marzipan and coconut and a fresh, creamy finish. Drink now through 2018. 40,000 cases made.”
Wine Advocate 88+ points
“The NV Brut is an attractive, entry-level wine laced with ripe pears, hazelnuts, spices and dried flowers. An understated, floral finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. This mid-weight, accessible, beautifully balanced Champagne is best suited for drinking over the next two to three years. I especially like the way NV Brut opens up with time in the glass. This is Lot 1097B. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. “
