91 points Wine & Spirits: "Marie and Frédéric Chauffray grow this wine on a wind-blown limestone plateau at the top of the Terraces du Larzac. The old vines, tended biodynamically, put out a gorgeously supple, floral red in 2015. Equal parts grenache and syrah with ten percent cinsault, vinified entirely in a mix of cement and stainless steel, the wine is juicy with pure berry fruit, soft grape-skin tannins lending it a gently firm grip and suede-like texture.

Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes). *Superb/Highly Recommended*" (12/2007) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. While the famous whiskey is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in Pennsylvania, the legacy lives on. Current ow... Read More »

2016 Stargazer Riesling Coal River Tasmania (Previously $30)

97 points James Halliday: "From the Palisander Vineyard, whole bunch-pressed, fermented in stainless steel, old oak and a ceramic egg, 2 months on lees with stirring. The complex vinification has worked perfectly: the wine has intense lime juice and lime zest flavours, but even more striking is the opulent juiciness of the mouthfeel before acidity on the finish cleanses the mouth." 96 points Bob Campbell: "The palate is intense and delicate, refined and frisky, with wonderful vitality which is a sheer joy to taste. The back-palate and finish are loaded with juicy fruit and mouth-watering acidity in perfect ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Laroche Chablis 1er Cru "Les Beauroys" (Previously $40)

91 points Decanter: "A classic Chablis nose, lean, stony and lifted. The rich, firm palate has weight and power, quite imposing for a premier cru, with ample spice and vigour. Moderate acidity but harmonious and quite long. (SB)" (12/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows fine Chablis character, exhibiting apple, lemon cake and stone aromas and flavors. Round and underlined by tangy acidity. Fine length. (BS)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: The Les Beauroys vineyard lies on the left bank of the Serein river in Chablis. It generally produces very charming wines. The 2015 from Laroche (a beautifully restored property that share... Read More »

2014 Dierberg "Dierberg Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $35) Top Pick!
2014 Dierberg "Dierberg Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $35)

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay Dierberg Vineyard is bright, focused and nicely sculpted throughout. Lemon confit, white flowers and slate are some of the signatures that develop in the glass. This is a classic Santa Maria Chardonnay built on energy and tension. (AG)" (6/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The aromas are restrained and mellow in this bottling from winemaker Tyler Thomas, showing mostly yellow apple and citrus peel notes. The palate is racy, high-toned and steely in structure, framed by a razor-sharp edge of zippy acidity, with only faint background notes of ripe stonefruit. (MK) ...Read More »

2014 Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (White Label) Top Pick!
2014 Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (White Label)

94 points James Halliday: "There's a nuclear arsenal of black and redcurrant, cassis, wild herb, black olive and charred, tarry tannins in each bottle of this wine, so handle with care. A big rib eye steak might be a good start, and someone to share the bottle. *Special Value Selection*" (10/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Both pretty and complex, Clairault’s Cab is a heady mix of cranberry and tart cherry, florals, peppery herbs, pencil lead and some raw meat in the background. The palate is medium bodied and rustic yet elegant. Tannins are big but they seem a product of the skins rather than the oak, and t ...Read More »
