1999 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
1999 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Gran Reserva has an enticing red cherry, soy and cedar-scented bouquet that is reminiscent of an old Burgundy. The palate is very well-balanced with fine acidity and edgy tannin. There are notes of fresh red cherries and orange rind interlaced by leather on the tart, highly enjoyable, zesty finish. Drink now-2018. (NM)" (8/2012) K&L Notes: Wow--this is spectacular Gran Reserva! Made in a traditional style with earthy red fruit aromas, and in this relatively cooler, damper vintage, a slightly Burgundian profile. The wine features good acidity, minerality, and...

2005 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cropped from a vintage deemed almost perfect, the 2005 Viña Ardanza Reserva follows the same varietal mix found in the last vintages; 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. The grapes are always sourced from the same vineyards, 30-year-old Tempranillo from Fuenmayor and Cenicero in Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Tudelilla in Rioja Baja. In the case of the 2005, it was racked six times during its elevage. The one bottle I tasted first was a bit evolved with plenty of cigar ash, incense and leather along with hung game (woodcock came to mind). But the palate was ...Read More »

1998 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja

As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to these wines.

This, the second wine of Gruaud Larose, provides value and drinkability for those looking for a classic though ripe St-Julien.

Over the next century, the estate would be divided, with a portion being controlled by the Sarget family.

The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g) and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture, smooth, fine and long. The citrus flavours give way to the driving surging acidity, thunderous acidity, really driving and powerful. The finish twists very slowly through to light-toasted cashew fruit flavours, but lemon citrus prevails. This is thrilling Champagne. Disgorged 22nd October, 2013. Dr ...Read More »

A glass-coating opaque purple, it offers up an alluring bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, leather, espresso, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur.

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is the first vintage released from the new cellar Roederer built in 2007, dedicated to the production of rosé. It comes from the firm’s estate vineyard in Cumières. With the delicate color of a classic saignée Champagne, this has the powerful expression of a grand cru wine, performing beyond its premier cru status. The fragrant red fruit has rich succulence and a chalky undertow, along with a fierce acidity that needs time to temper in the bottle. Decant it if you open this now, to serve with mousse truffée." (12/2013)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Still young and fruity, this is ...Read More »

2005 Balestard La Tonnelle, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2005 Balestard La Tonnelle, St-Emilion

Jancis Robinson: "Fine perfume, becoming more meaty. Really moreish, dry and quite firm. Perhaps a little more structure than fruit." (11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion. A bit of bottling sulfur will dissipate as the wine ages, and the tannins will soften up for a steak." (10/2008) Wine Spectator: "Vanilla, licorice and violet aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with silky tannins and a medium finish. (Web-2008)" K&L Notes: Wow! This wine has really come around in the last few years. It was a bit ... Read More »

2009 Marques de Murrieta Capellanía Blanco

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Round and plush, this rich white delivers pear, melon and tangerine flavors, with layers of vanilla, white chocolate and clove. Citrusy acidity keeps this fresh, offering plenty of depth for aging." (10/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Capellania Blanco Reserva is produced with Viura grapes from the Capellania vineyard within the 300-hectare Ygay Estate. 2009 was a warmer year than 2008, and the grapes were harvested earlier, on September 15 and 17. The must slowly ferments at low temperatures in stainless steel vats, malolactic is prevented to keep freshness and acidity (t ...Read More »

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.The 1977, still a baby, is fabulously scented, very rich and concentrated, and has a potential longevity of at least another 30-50 years. (RP)" (1/1989)92 points Wine Spectator: "Medium brick-red. Aromas of coffee, prune and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a licorice, berry, custard and cream character.

2000 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Spectator: "A rich note of smoke heralds this toasty version, with truffle and roasted hazelnut aromatics accenting layered flavors of creamed apple, crystallized honey, lemon curd and crème de cassis. Vibrant, with a lovely, lacy texture and racy acidity that persists on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2028." (11/2013)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright gold. Smoke-accented orchard fruits, herbs and citrus pith on the the intensely perfumed nose. Deeply pitched but lively on the palate, with very good depth to its intense pear and lemon curd flavors. The smoky note builds on the bac ...Read More »

2010 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Don't miss!* A restrained nose of citrus, floral, mineral reduction and algae slides into impressively rich, powerful, serious and concentrated flavors that are almost painfully intense on the explosive and strikingly long finish. This is a classic Bougros with its robust and muscular big-bodied flavors." (10/2011)93 points Wine & Spirits: "With 10.18 acres, Fèvre owns one-third of this grand cru, a southwest-facing hillside that produced a spherical wine locked in a Kimmeridgian limestone shell. Scents of wildflower honey and creamy Meyer lemon flavors get cut by the blunt youth ...Read More »

1989 Haut-Bages-Averous, Pauillac

90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows excellent harmony, with powerful tar, blackberry and fruit aromas and a super-rich palate. The ample tannins are fully integrated, giving it excellent balance." (3/1992) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 is an excellent second wine, displaying rich cassis fruit, good, spicy, new oak, and a delicious, medium to full-bodied, corpulent texture." (2/1993) K&L Notes: This is the second label (renamed Echo de Lynch-Bages in 2008) of Lynch-Bages, a highly regarded fifth growth from Pauillac. The second wine displays the same exceptional winemaking as its "big brother," but is sourced from young... Read More »

2009 Vie di Romans "Piere" Sauvignon Blanc 375ml (Previously $23)

93 points James Suckling: "The nose on this is phenomenal, with intense sliced peaches. Full body and loads of fruit with a long flavorful finish. Drink now." (12/2011)93 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows on a terrace above the north bank of the Isonzo river, where the soils are well-drained gravel and clay. The temperate 2009 vintage created a robust young sauvignon, structured as a grand and age-worthy wine. The texture is supple, carrying pungent fruit scents of pear and nectarine; the finish meshes that fruit with an earthier note. Delicious with veal schnitzel now or after several years in the cellar. ...Read More »
