Nov. 14, 2014: BOLLINGER Brut Champagne Special Cuvée NV (93 points, $73)

Like a fine tapestry, this weaves rich flavors of blackberry tart, lemon parfait, graphite and toasted almond together on the creamy palate. Finely honed acidity creates a vibrant thread throughout. Drink now through 2022. 19,000 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Nov. 13, 2014: JACQUESSON Extra Brut Champagne Cuvée nº 737 NV (92 points, $80)
