Jacques Selosse "Le Bout du Clos Ambonnay" Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut Champagne
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of Jacques Selosse "Le Bout du Clos Ambonnay" Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut Champagne (96RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Le Bout du Clos is all about power, depth and pure structure. The weight and gravitas of Ambonnay comes through beautifully in this intense, layered Champagne. Hard candy, wild flowers, mint and spice are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The current release is a blend of vintages 2004 and 2005, two years that are very much complimentary in nature. I drank several bottles of the Bout du Clos during a recent trip in Italy, and was never let down. This is a gorgeous showing. Today the Bout du Clos has an implosive, huge minerality that keeps the wine from being fully expressive, but in another few years, the wine should start to be even better than it is today. Disgorgement date: April 13, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (AG)" (10/2012)

2003 Jacques Selosse "Millésime" Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Jacques Selosse "Millésime" Blanc de Blancs Champagne (97JS). James Suckling: "A wine that has an absolutely unique character, Selosse has interpreted a truly extraordinary vintage with poetic insight. He describes the double stresses of an April frost that claimed 75% of the yield in Avize, coupled with a very hot and dry June and August. He speaks of the evapotranspiration and the effect of depositing an immense amount of mineral residue into the plant, which has manifested in this striking wine, and compares it to a chef reducing and concentrating a sauce. The smoky, toasty notes are more than autolysis; you can smell the heat of the vintage here. It has profound stony and chalky aromas, gentle spices, grilled hazelnuts and dehydrated stone fruits. The minerals explode onto the palate. It's electric, hitting like an ionic blast before rolling out dark nutty flavors ahead of plush orange and ripe nectarine, peach and big, rich phenolics. It has many l

2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99JS, 98WE, 96CG, 96VN, 92WS, 91ST). Wine & Spirits: "If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistable, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age." (12/2009)

Jacques Selosse Lieux Dits Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Les Carelles Le Mesnil sur Oger (dis. 2013)
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of Jacques Selosse Lieux Dits Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Les Carelles Le Mesnil sur Oger (94VN). Vinous: "(2 g/l dosage; disgorged on April 10, 2013): Bright yellow. Smoky pear and peach nectar scents are complicated by toasty lees, vanilla and chamomile. Velvety, dense and expansivee, offering toasty citrus and orchard fruit flavors given spine by juicy acidity and a strong mineral quality. The toasty note comes back strong on the mineral-driven finish, which lingers with superb tenacity. (JR)" (01/2015)

2012 Caymus "40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L)
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Caymus "40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L) (96RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies. This is clearly one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries, as well as one that, amazingly, never went through a bad patch. Obviously, no matter which generation is in the driver’s seat (or should I say tractor’s seat), Caymus Vineyard knows how to deliver flavor and deliciousness. (RP)" (10/2014)
