2008 Henri Boillot Montrachet Grand Cru
Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2008 Henri Boillot Montrachet Grand Cru (96BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "* Don't Miss! * This is restrained and extremely tight while revealing precious little aromatically beyond hints of pure white flower, pear and spice. However, the rich, full and strikingly powerful flavors are even more imposingly-scaled than those of the Criots and possess superb depth of dry extract and huge length on the detailed, focused, beautifully balanced and penetrating finish that seems to go on without end. This is a potentially great Montrachet and I really admire the interplay of power and volume juxtaposed against an almost lilting mouth feel." (06/2010)

2008 Montrose, St-Estèphe (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2008 Montrose, St-Estèphe (1.5L) (95RP, 94JS, 94WE, 91WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. The 2008 was fashioned from yields of 44 hectoliters per hectare which is slightly less than the 2010's 45 hectoliters per hectare. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 20+.

2008 Kapcsandy Family "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Kapcsandy Family "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 94JS, 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another perfect wine (identical to the 2007) is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (430 cases produced), this is an exquisite wine of great precision and profound concentration and complexity. It possesses an inky/purple color in addition to an ethereal nose of cassis, chocolate, burning embers, espresso and forest floor. Sweet tannins, a multidimensional mouthfeel, full-bodied power and good structure as well as freshness make for a prodigious example of wine that will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring, but will keep for 25-30 years. This is an awesome effort, particularly after what the Kapcsandy family achieved in 2007. As I have written many times over the last several years, the Kapcsandy estate, w

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2008 Domaine Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos St. Jean (92BH, 91WS, 90ST). "Outstanding" and 92 points Allen Meadows: " An intensely herb and green fruit suffused nose that is sprinkled with discreet wet stone notes are picked up by the elegant, pure and detailed flavors that possess excellent mid-palate fat as well as a highly persistent finish where the intensity really picks up. Niellon often produces outstanding wine from this vineyard and that is certainly the case in '08." Tasted: Jun 01, 2010)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This also displays moderate new wood influence that largely if not completely stays out of the way of the perfumed ripe violet, soy and hoisin suffused blue Pinot fruit aromas that are in keeping with the spicy, rich, round and utterly delicious flavors that are quite supple on the mid-palate and culminate in a highly complex and lingering finish."

2008 Charles Smith "Royal City" Washington State Syrah
Bid on this bottle of 2008 Charles Smith "Royal City" Washington State Syrah (99RP, 98WE, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Royal City Syrah was sourced from the Stoneridge Vineyard. It displays a soaring perfume of sandalwood, garrigue, lavender, smoke, bacon, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Super-concentrated, it deftly marries power and elegance in a seamless wine that should see its 20th birthday in peak form. I met up with Charles at his new wine bar in Walla Walla before we drove out to the winery in his 1949 Cadillac, a picture of which is on the web-site (not the deluxe model like my grandfather used to drive). It is always a highlight of my annual trip to Washington because in addition to the tasting, you get a performance but, after all is said and done, when it comes to making wine, Charles Smith is all business. He knows where the vineyards are, he believes in amazingly low yields, and in the winery he is a non-interventionist. All of the following wines

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dramatically site-typical in its pungent scents of peat, Latakia tobacco, smoked meats, and licorice, the Rousseau 2008 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes offers a rich yet vibrant amalgam of dark cherry, licorice, and tobacco on smoothly polished yet palpably extract-rich palate. Peat, chalk and bittersweet herbal and cherry pit notes help extend an energetically gripping finish. I would feel confident in planning to age this for 12-15 years. " (06/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 2001 and 2002 or 1990 and 1991. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years.

Wine Enthusiast: "This is a big, full-bodied Pinot, dark in color, fairly tannic and weighty. Completely dry, it’s made in a more robust style than many another Russian River Pinot Noir. The cherry, currant, pomegranate and persimmon flavors have an edge of raisins that adds interest. Decant it, let it breathe and watch how it changes in the glass." (04/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At around 75 cases (3 barrels) the 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses represents a large lot by Le Moine standards, for which I hope a goodly number of wine lovers will be able to give thanks. Red currant, kirsch, freesia, citrus zest, and smoky black tea in the nose lead to a palate performance of brightness, wafting florality, and interactive complexity such would befit a great Riesling, with saline and subtly carnal savor as well as a crystalline sense of minerality shimmering through a long finish. This should be worth following for 15-20 years but I would on no account miss out on drinking some young as well. (DS)" (06/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Bonnes Mares Grand Cru ((92-94BH), (93-94RP), 92ST). 92-94 Burghound: "A more deeply pitched nose of cool and reserved red and black cherry aromas that are quite fresh and pure and are laced more with warm earth than stone though both are present. The focused and detailed broad-shouldered flavors are blessed with ample dry extract that cuts a bit of the austerity on the linear, serious, mouth coating and hugely long finish. As is often the case, this is notably more somber than the Amoureuses and trades elegance for power and muscle." 93-94 From Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scents and flavors of grenadine, blueberry syrup, distilled herbal concentrates, as well as rose and peony floral notes surprisingly akin to those found in its siblings from Musigny mark the de Vogue 2008 Bonnes Mares. Saline, savory meat stock elements – which Millet considers “not really a true minerality like that of the Amoureuses” – suffuse a palate of impres

Like all of these wines, there is a seamless integration of acidity, wood, and tannin, all of it present in subtle and measured dosages. The sweetness of the plum, meaty, black currant fruit intermixed with cherries, boysenberry, forest floor, and floral notes is nothing short of awesome.

This compelling Chardonnay can be drunk over the next 10-15+ years." (02/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (96RP, 95WE, 94ST, 93JS, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, Pontet Canet’s 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010.

The tannins are ripe and the wine reveals impressive levels of richness as well as intensity. The final blend is virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon and the wine can be drunk now or cellared for 20 or more years. Proprietor Ann Colgin, her winemaker, Allison Tauziet, and consultant, Dr. Alain Raynaud, must be pleased with their 2008s..."

2008 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah
Bid on this bottle of 2008 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98RP, 97WE, 95ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Armada Vineyard Syrah takes the longest to come around according to Christophe Baron. It was aged in puncheon for 22 months. Smoked meat, game, Asian spices, lavender, and blueberry are just some of the scents composing the wine’s aromatic array. In the glass it opens to reveal a pure, rich, elegant but powerful wine with a 60-second finish. It, too, will drink nicely for 10-12 years. I’m a bit cautious on my aging potential estimates because of the lack of a track record, but 10-12 years is a certainty in a cold cellar. (JM)"

This Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend delivers thick concentration and sun-kissed aromas of black fruit, prune, dried bay leaf, black olive and tobacco. The thick, fertile soils that characterize the magical strip of coastal Tuscany at Bolgheri help shape amazing richness and intensity."

Aromas of chocolate, espresso, blackberries, black currants and charcoal/burning embers leads to a full-bodied, expressive, rich wine that is nearly as compelling as the 2007. Dense, full-bodied and already drinkable, it should evolve for 20+ years. (RP)" (12/2010) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Knockout nose combines dark berries, licorice, violet, minerals and bitter chocolate. Juicy, minerally and suave in the mouth, with terrific grip and aromatic perfume to the fla

Veeder (500 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon off a site west of Oakville). Dense bluish purple to the rim, with a sensational nose of forest, flowers, graphite, and blueberry liqueur intermixed with creme de cassis and burning embers/charcoal, this wine has fabulous fruit, a remarkably full-bodied texture, great purity, and a finish that goes on for close to 50+ seconds. This is an awesome 2008 and one of the great wines of the vintage. It should drink well for 25+ years."

It reveals an opaque ruby/purple color, lots of unctuosity and a boatload of sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice, smoke and oak. Full-bodied, remarkably concentrated and stunningly pure and textured, this sensational wine is already drinking well, and will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Forets St.-Georges is a gorgeous wine. Here the freshness of the vintage plays off the warmth of the site nicely. The 2008 is naturally less extroverted than the 2009 tasted alongside it, but the wine nevertheless impresses for its cool, mineral-laced fruit and fabulous length.

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Sweet spot Outstanding* As elegant as the Goutte d'Or is, the Bouchères goes it one better with its mélange of white peach, spiced pear and dried rose petal aromas that slide gracefully into precise yet quite densely textured flavors that brim with dry extract and superb length. This is an explosive wine that finishes bone dry and manages to combine impressive power with balance and focus. I actually prefer the delivery of this to the Goutte d'Or but at present at least, it doesn't quite have the same degree of complexity. A qualitative choice but both are worth considering.

With time in the glass, the fruit gradually begins to emerge. The Clos du Roi looks to be one of the more sumptuous 2008s, once the tannins soften a touch. There is so much energy and sheer vitality here. This is a terrific wine from Etienne de Montille. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. (AG)" (05/2011)
