2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

All Mesnil grand cru bargain!!!! This wine comes from all estate-grown fruit in the grand cru of Mesnil. It is a very clean wine with pure flavors and a complex, subtle nose. The texture is silky and delicate, but the finish is quite powerful. This is a very stylish wine, and a very good deal thanks to a direct buy from the producer. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc Top Pick!
2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Already a bit of evolution on the nose! Sweet, Earl Grey tea character. Mild and with sufficient gentle fruit on the mid palate though pretty chewy on the finish. Pretty low key." (4/2008) K&L Notes: Château Malescasse is an historic property ideally situated on gravel soils close to the Gironde River just north of Margaux. While it is true that 2007 will never have the power or authority of the finest vintages of the decade, the best wines display a remarkable ripeness and an admirable richness of texture. These are medium to full-bodied reds with soft tannins that ... Read More »

2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Gran Reserva can also do with some decanting in advance as it has some reductive aromas when first poured after opening. After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva.

Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Batard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006." (7/2017) 96 points Decanter: "Unbroken sun through August and early September helped to shape an idyllic harvest, on 12th September.

This classic Sezanne Champagne is composed of 96% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Noir aged over 8 years on the lees. It is dosed at under 8g/l and all stainlees steel fermented.

(RP)" (4/2010) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby color. Red berries, licorice, flowers and spices on the nose.

It's sourced from vines grown at high altitude (for Penedès), 800 meters, from 30-year-old plants kept in contact with the lees for no less than 15 months.

It aged for no less than four years under the veil of saccharomyces yeasts. It has pungent, penetrating notes of morel mushrooms and nuts in an elegant, mineral style that is the signature at Montbourgeau. It has a very dry palate with a chalky sensation.

2008 Perrier Jouët "Belle Epoque" Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Spectator: "This finely knit and lithe Champagne is smoky up front, opening into a lovely range of pastry, glazed apricot, lemon curd and candied ginger notes in the glass. Vibrant acidity drives the satinlike finish. Drink now through 2030. (AN)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque 2008 reminds me somewhat of the grace of the exceptional 1995, Cellarmaster Hervé Deschamps’ first solo vintage and still one of his best. Though the two vintages 13 years apart share the same grace and class, the 2008 is more mineral, reflecting a quite sunless summer season. Only the re ...Read More »

2007 Nicole Chanrion Cote de Brouilly "Domaine de la Voute des Crozes"

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Essentially, the 2007 Cote de Brouilly for the U.S. is the same as for other markets except that it is not filtered. An invigoratingly saline and tart edge to the abundant, pure black fruits is on display. Notes of black tea and wet stone add intrigue. There is a lovely textural polish and brightness to a finish that suggests almost a Riesling-like call and response of fruit and mineral. Enjoy this over the next 2-3 years. Nicole Chanrion’s promising, well-concentrated, and spirited 2008 was still tinged with malic acid and loaded with CO2 when I last ta ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de Montbourgeau Vin Jaune de l'Etoile (620ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 L'Etoile Vin Jaune is a super elegant version of the Savagnin aged under a veil of yeasts for no less than six full years and whatever remains of the year when the grapes were harvested. It has a great nose, consistent with what I expected from a great year, though it was recently bottled and showed a little closed, subtle and insinuating, elegant and serious, with some strictness. It has great purity of flavors, great length and a mineral, almost salty finish. There is great complexity and detail in the nose, slowly developing aromas reminiscen ...Read More »

2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A gorgeous wine that's a legend in the making, the 2002 Rare Brut is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, with just under 10 grams of dosage. Offering incredible notes of stone fruits, brioche, white flowers, and hints of toasted nuts, this flat out awesome wine is concentrated and opulent, yet still dances on the palate with vibrant acidity and great, great finish. It's going to drink beautifully for another two to three decades. Bravo! This cuvee has only been made in 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, and in 2007."

2013 Loimer Langen Riesling Kamptal (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $30+)

Winery Notes: "Riesling grapes from fine, old vineyards around Langenlois and nearby areas such as Zöbing, Gobelsburg, Schiltern and Mollands. Both young and old vines for the wine grow mainly in gneiss soils. The rest are nurtured in gravel and loess soils (Gobelsburg). The grapes were hand-selected in the middle of October. The Riesling then went through a short maceration where it was whole-bunch pressed for 12 hours. After fermentation in steel tanks the wine was racked and then matured for two months in steel tanks on the fine less."
