2010 Nicolas Joly "Clos de la Coulée de Serrant" Savennières-Coulée de Serrant
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Nicolas Joly "Clos de la Coulée de Serrant" Savennières-Coulée de Serrant (93W&S). Wine & Spirits: "This historic clos is widely considered one of the greatest vineyards in the Loire: 17.2 acres on a steep hillside above the river where the vines average 35 years of age, some older than 80. Joly farms it and vinifies the wine under a biodynamic regime, and sure, the wine might be more accessible if it were cleaner. For those who can live with the idiosyncrasies of a "vin naturel," this is among the most evocative and complex. It is, first and foremost, a lovely Savenièrres, true to the appellation. Beyond that, you’ll find a layering of wildflower honey and more delicate notes of meadow flowers infusing a deep golden wine. It’s luscious, juicy, savory and tense, a 2010 suited to five or six years of age and a terrine of foie gras." (04/2013)

White flowers, lemon and crushed rocks all come to life in a vibrant Chardonnay that should drink nicely for a handful of years. Bright saline notes add tension on the finish.

Wine Enthusiast: "The pure, delicate but ever so authentic scent of fragrant Muscat grapes rises from the glass. The palate is a joy: a feather-light, fragrant but intense experience of pure Muscat flavor. There is the textural tinge of lemon freshness and the uncompromising notion of stone on a dry, sprightly and utterly disarming palate of immense purity.

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A more elegant, airy and slightly cooler nose displays notes of citrus, rose petal, essence of almost and a hint of jasmine tea. There is an equally good sense of refinement to the ultra-pure and more obviously mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in an understated, clean and beautifully focused and balanced finish that is positively Zen-like in its sense of harmony. This and the Porusot beautifully demonstrate the two extremes of the Meursault 1ers as they contrast power and punch with elegance and finesse.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another sensational white that made my eyes roll back in my head, the 2003 Hermitage Blanc is even more over the top and decadent than the '09. Possessing almost no acidity, it's a flamboyant, massively concentrated, decadent and heady effort that's overflowing with notions of honey, caramelized oranges, currants, licorice and buttered hazelnuts. Staying fresh and lively, it's a monumental Hermitage Blanc that will probably live forever on its sheer concentration. (JD)" (09/2015)

As was the case for the 2000 and 2001 vintages, Domaines Leroy and d'Auvenay elected to bottle quite early; in fact, the 2002s were bottled in July! Mme Bize calls 2002 a 'belle année of exceptional concentration and almost perfectly healthy fruit with excellent physiological ripeness and sugars of around 13%. The wines are exceptionally well balanced and while I would not say the 2002 as a group is better than 1999, a few wines in the portfolio are better". While 2002 is not in my view a truly gifted terroir vintage, Mme Bize commented that "we had perhaps the most obvious distinction ever in terms of terroir differentiation'.The Leroy 2002s are extremely impressive wines, as well they should be for the prices demanded.

Mark Aubert had an impressive resumé long before he became this famous, mentored by Helen Turley when he was at Peter Michael, and from there spending impressive tenures at Colgin and Tom Futo’s winery before he went off bound for glory. I am a big buyer of these wines every year, and often serve the wines to strangers at charity events. They are consistently the favorites that people taste.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""Aromas of limes, yellow citrus, crushed stones, herbs, chamomile and honey lead the 2012 Sancerre Edmond to a refreshingly mineral, profund and pure palate of great expression and a stimulating length with citrus flavors." This was my first note of the 2012 Sancerre Edmond, which is dedicated to Alphonse Mellot’s father Alphonse Edmond. The selection from the oldest (about 100 years old) Sauvignon Blanc grapes of the estate (on calcareous marl soils) is the purest and most precise expression of the kimmeridgian terroir because – and this is my finding of the second day – there is nothing more on the nose than ripe fruit aromas (nectarines again) based on and powdered with rock flour ...

Wine & Spirits: "After his travels to Europe to implement the Marshall Plan, and later as Ambassador to Italy, James Zellerbach’s interest in Burgundy led him to plant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the hills above Sonoma in 1953. The vineyard, now expanded to 44 acres, rises from 430 to 820 feet. It still includes that original planting (six percent of this blend) and the current team, led by Bob Sessions and Michael McNeill, still hold to the idea that Chardonnay should be elegant and savory, an expression of its site (the average age of the vines is 32 years). This vintage is tight and stony, with oak firming up the plump and gentle curves of peach-like fruit. Air brings up a chamomile flower scent that lasts, the finish clean and delicate.

For 2011 specifically, she did concede that yields were a bit more generous than usual at between 24 and 25 hl/ha but that the growing season did cause some angst.

Other respected vignerons like Coche and Raveneau hold these wines in the highest esteem and are generous with their praise when Jobard comes up in conversation... Their Meursault En la Barre is an outstanding value from an assiduously tended vineyard plot located just behind their home... In their youth, these wines are often tightly wound with an intense mineral structure that only begins to soften with extended bottle aging."

Bid on this bottle of 1973 d Yquem, Sauternes. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Surprisingly successful in what was a mediocre vintage for the wines of this region, the 1973 Yquem...is well balanced, fat, and long on the palate (only 12% of the crop was used for Yquem). (RP)" (03/1984)

2011 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (97RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 is a great Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard from a much-maligned and sometimes excessively criticized vintage. 2011 has its low points, but there are many producers who got it right, and survived the challenging growing and harvest conditions. This wine has phenomenal intensity, with plenty of crushed rock, pineapple, honeysuckle, orange and tangerine blossom in an elegant, medium to full-bodied style, with terrific intensity, good acidity and freshness. This is more evolved than either the 2009 or 2010, and probably will be a candidate for 7-8 years of aging, rather than 10 or more. (RP)" (08/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Aubert "Eastside Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay (99RP, 95VN, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(Note from 2013 review, re-reviewed with no new note in 2014) The 2012 Chardonnay East Side, a vineyard owned by top viticulturist Ulises Valdez, is a 1,000-case cuvee that reveals a liquified wet stone character intermixed with notes of white currants, quince, honeysuckle, pineapple and peach marmalade. Strong minerality as well as a remarkable finish make this a candidate for perfection. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 6-half-bottle lot of 1988 Rayne-Vigneau, Sauternes (375ml) (91RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As disappointing as the 1989, both in the context of the vintage and the increasing quality of the wines now emerging from Rayne-Vigneau, the 1988 is the best example I have tasted from this property. An intense, honeyed, pear, flower, and apricot fragrance is reminiscent of Muscat de Beaumes de Venise. In the mouth, there is exceptional richness, super focus because of fine acidity, a wonderful touch of toasty new oak, and an elegant, very positive, crisp finish. This is a beautifully made, authoritative tasting, and impeccably well-balanced Sauternes. (RP)" (12/1997)
