2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru

2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Champeaux" Vieilles Vignes - 4 available ($249.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot* A discreet application of wood frames the spicy, pure, airy and cool nose that features red and black currant, floral, earth and sauvage hints. There is almost painful intensity to the dense, serious and mouth coating flavors that also exhibit an abundance of minerality on the balanced, refined and gorgeously persistent finish. Textbook Champeaux." (01/2016)

92-94 points Vinous: "Bright medium ruby Savory aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, liquid smoke and animal fur. At once silky and bracing, displaying excellent definition and lift to its flavors of blueberry, blackberry and licorice. Finishes juicy and long, with serious but fine-grained tannins and lively blackberry and violet notes. This really spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate and glistens on the aftertaste. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru

2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Corbeaux" - 8 available ($249.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot* There is plenty of the classic Corbeaux sauvage character present on the ultra-fresh and markedly floral nose of spicy and earthy red currant scents. There is excellent size, weight and energy to the muscular yet velvet-textured medium weight flavors that reveals a touch of austerity on the powerful and once again hugely long finale. Note well that this is extremely structured and while well-balanced it's very likely going to need 20 years of cellar to arrive at its full apogee." (01/2016)

90-92 points Vinous: "Dark ruby-red. Brooding, sauvage nose hints at black fruits and game. Surprisingly round on entry, showing strong torrefaction character, then tightens up toward the back and turns distinctly severe, showing a strong stem element and pronounced oakiness. This powerful, soil-driven wine finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins. In an awkward stage today, not showing the attractive juicy character of the Petite Chapelle. (ST)" (01/2016)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Corbeaux, raised in new oak with 80% whole bunch fruit, has a similar nose to the Petite-Chapelle; perhaps the fruit here veering more to the red side of the spectrum, touches of blood orange surfacing with time. The palate is quite rich on the entry, finer tannins here than the Petite-Chapelle, and more linear though without the same sustain on the aftertaste. It just needs to show more "Pinoté." (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Bernard Dugat-Py Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru - 4 available ($449.99)

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "In contrast to all of the prior wines in the range this is the first to display any appreciable amount of reduction and even here it doesn't mask the earth and game wisps. There is superb concentration, intensity and muscularity to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that culminate in a robust, tannic, austere and massively long finale. This isn't going to win any awards for refinement but if bold burgundy is in your wheelhouse, this would make for a dramatic choice provided that you have the patience to wait." (01/2016)

93-95 points Vinous: "(90% vendange entier): Dark red-ruby. Explosive yet airy aromas of black raspberry, espresso and game. Wonderfully silky and fine-grained on the palate, with powerful minerality giving the wine terrific inner-mouth energy. Complex soil tones complement the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors on the refined, very long finish. (ST)" (01/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Mazoyères Chambertin Grand Cru, which comes from same-aged vines just 60 meters away from the Charmes-Chambertin, has a very intense, well defined bouquet: blackberry and raspberry coulis, fine mineralité coming through. I find the new oak less imposing here. The 90% whole bunch fruit works well on the palate; the wine is medium-bodied with firm, slightly abrasive tannins that should soften during the élevage and requisite bottle age. Good density here with plenty of freshness on the finish, this is a wine for long-term keeping. (NM)" (12/2015)

Jancis Robinson: "90% whole bunch. 100% new oak. On the Morey side 50 m from Dugat-Pys Charmes-Chambertin vines. Sinewy, mineral rather than fruity nose. High toned. Earthy. Savoury, almost sandy textured. No obvious sweetness. Needs lots of time. Very serious. Long. (18/20 points)" (11/2015)

2014 Claude Dugat Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Claude Dugat Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru - 3 available Price: Hidden

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a well-defined bouquet, the oak here nicely integrated with the fruit that consists of blackberry and wild strawberry, underneath mineral scents joined by rose petals that unfurl with time. The palate is medium-bodied and silky smooth in texture, opening nicely in the glass with its refined and very pure, very Charmes-like finish. Whereas the entry-level wines left me wanting more, this Grand Cru pushes all the right buttons. (NM)" (12/2015)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Modest but not invisible wood frames overtly spicy and fresh red and dark berry fruit aromas that exhibit plenty of Gevrey-style earth and underbrush influences. There is excellent intensity to the utterly delicious, complex and concentrated medium weight plus flavors that deliver outstanding persistence on the moderately austere and quite serious finale. This is textbook." (01/2016)

93 points Vinous: "Bright, full red A step up in ripeness on the nose from the premier crus, offering scents of raspberry, minerals and underbrush lifted by flowers Also less strict in its texture than the foregoing samples, conveying striking purity of fruit and the crunchy character of the vintage This wonderfully precise wine piques the taste buds on the very long, firm tannins There's pleasure here now but this is for the cellar. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Claude Dugat Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Claude Dugat Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru - 3 available Price: Hidden

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the restrained nose is cooler and more elegant with strikingly pure and dense aromas of wild red berries, spice, sandalwood and a hint of the sauvage. There is evident minerality to the highly energetic and beautifully detailed flavors that possess excellent volume while remaining refined, all wrapped in a wonderfully refreshing, classy and stylish finale. I very much like the balance and like the Charmes, this is absolutely textbook." (01/2016)

94 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red Very good spicy lift to the aromas of black cherry, dark berries and minerals In a dense, sappy style but savory and quite tight, showing a strong exotic spice character and terrific inner-mouth energy but much less expansive today than the Charmes-Chambertin But this wine's saline, very long, vibrant finish shows the spine for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. 94+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has a clean and precise nose, quite taciturn at first but opening like the Charmes-Chambertin with marine-tinged red and black fruit. But for a Griotte, this is very well behaved! The palate is very well structured with commendable precision, nicely focused, though I would have sought more complexity and mineralité on the finish. Still, this is a fine Griotte, even if it might not be the best ever produced at this address. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru

2014 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru - 12 available ($129.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru is a blend of Cherbaud, Bel Air and Petit Chapelle. Up until 2012 it included Champonnet, which Arnaud now blends separately. Matured in 40% new oak, it has a very expressive, mineral-driven bouquet with vivid blackberry and cranberry scents, cold limestone in the background. The palate is very composed with filigree tannin and sensual in the mouth with a keen line of acidity; this is a more understated Gevrey but that detail on the finish is wondrous. (NM)" (12/2015)

90-92 points Vinous: "Bright red with ruby highlights. Deep, smoky minerality complements purple and black fruits on the nose. Sappy, intense and nicely delineated, showing classic Gevrey energy to the flavors of tangy dark berries and game. Finishes with firm, fine-grained tannins and excellent length. This wine will give early pleasure but should also age well. 'This is always a very ripe cuvée but with good acidity,' notes Mortet. (ST)" (01/2016)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again there is strong reduction present. The restrained medium-bodied flavors possess excellent delineation before culminating in a delicious, stony, austere and quite serious finish." (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Arlaud Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Arlaud Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru - 7 available ($259.99)

92-95 points Vinous: "Healthy bright medium red. Totally different on the nose than the rest of the 2014s, offering aromas of musky red fruits, wild herbs and vegetable matter plus a touch of ripe-year prune without any impression of heat. Densely packed and seamless but a bit unforthcoming. The thick blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors boast terrific concentration but will need years to develop complexity. Finishes with big tongue-dusting tannins and superb palate-saturating length. (ST)" (01/2016)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A background touch of oak sets off the equally cool and restrained aromas of admirably pure red currant, plum, violet and sandalwood hints. The sleek, intense and punchy broad-shouldered flavors possess obvious power and muscle along with a subtle minerality before concluding in a beautifully long and palate staining finish. As good as this is it is neither as refined as the Clos St. Denis nor as complex as the Charmes. Here too I underscore that patience will be required." (01/2016)

94 points Decanter: "Ripe black fruit but also some lovely savoury notes with a round velvety texture and a spicy finish. A very ample wine. " (02/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has a candied bouquet with blood orange (like the Clos Saint-Denis) and apricot scents, perhaps just a slight touch of volatile acidity here when compared to Arlaud's other Grand Crus? The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit on the entry. This has quite a firm grip in the mouth, for me, perhaps just a bit too demonstrative on the finish and consequently, forsaking a little finesse. (NM)" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ($159.99)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A more deeply pitched and notably earthier nose also displays plenty of sauvage character. This gamy element continues onto the concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel despite the evident muscularity of the austere and explosive finish. This is very Mazoyères in character yet it is a bit less rustic than usual. Worth a look provided that you have the patience to cellar it." (01/2016)

95 points Wine Spectator: "A powerful, dense version, evoking cherry, currant and spice flavors, with underlying accents of mineral and tobacco. Tight and chalky on the finish, but showing promise. Best from 2020 through 2040. 60 cases imported. (BS)" (11/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru has a very composed bouquet with intense red cherries, wild strawberry and raspberry preserve aromas, offering that sensuality Burgundy-lovers seek from a Charmes-Chambertin. The palate is medium-bodied and showing the hand of the oak a little at the moment, but it is in proportion with the fruit and the finish maintains fine delineation. (NM)" (12/2015)

90-92 points Vinous: "from vines in the highest part of Mazoyères): Healthy dark red. Aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, licorice, anise and bitter chocolate show less floral character than the Combottes. Rich, fine-grained and deep, conveying a chocolatey ripeness but coming across as a bit earth-bound, with a slightly more rustic texture than the Combottes. This plush wine finishes with big, ripe, chewy tannins. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Arlaud Clos de la Roche Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Arlaud Clos de la Roche Grand Cru - 8 available ($159.99)

95 points Decanter: "Raspberry and red cherry intermingle with spices on a silky texture and savoury finish. Great definition of flavour; immense class." (05/2016)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, of which there are seven barrels this year, has a detailed, "cool" bouquet that gradually unfurls in the glass, offering Morello, crushed strawberry and cold limestone scents. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, gently gripping the mouth, with the mineral core very expressive on the finish. This is the standout 2014 from Cyprièn this vintage. (NM)" (12/2015)

94 points Vinous: "Medium red A sexy note of reduction to the aromas of strawberry, brown spices, game and rose petal, plus a whiff of white truffle Plush, silky and utterly seamless; wonderfully full for the vintage yet with no undue weight The red cherry and saline mineral flavors are less expressive than those of the Ruchots, conveying a restrained sweetness This is best today on the back end, where it displays sappy, subtle flavor intensity and spreads out to saturate the palate and build on the long aftertaste. (ST)" (03/2017)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A deft though not invisible application of wood serves as a backdrop for the spicy and earthy aromas of both red and dark currant that displays a marked sauvage element. The mouth feel of the broad-shouldered flavors is restrained and surprisingly supple, indeed it is almost supple though the finish tightens up enough to suggest that this should reward mid-term cellaring. Overall this seems a bit less impressive than usual though I do like the complexity." (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Arlaud Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Arlaud Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru - 3 available ($199.99)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A perfumed and dazzlingly elegant nose displays aromas of essence of red Pinot fruit with plenty of spice and floral elements in evidence. This too possesses a caressing mouth feel as there is an abundance of dry extract that buffers the moderately firm tannins on the dusty and superbly persistent finale. This is notably finer than the Charmes but not more complex." (01/2016)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos St Denis Grand Cru (three barrels this year) has a touch more complexity on the nose than the Clos de la Roche, armed with blood orange infusing the red berry fruit, with the mineral scents (cold limestone and flint) here more expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp in the mouth, structured and mint-fresh, maybe without quite the same degree of charm as the Clos de la Roche on the finish. Still, this is a fine Clos Saint Denis, but it will require a few years in the cellar for its backbone to soften and to gain more finesse. (NM)" (12/2015)

93 points Decanter: "Very pure red fruit with a tight and compact structure and a spicy finish." (05/2016)

92 points Vinous: "Good dark red Penetrating, pure scents of red cherry, red plum, rose petal, spices and red licorice Juicy but very tightly wound, showing less sweetness today than the Clos de la Roche Much more backward and imploded, even a bit disjointed in the early going, finishing with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and lingering notes of spicy oak and pepper This was remarkably perfumed and brisk from barrel but is dominated by its spine today. 92+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Armand Rousseau Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Armand Rousseau Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru - 6 available ($349.99)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru has an elegant red berry bouquet that could disarm you at a hundred paces. This has so much finesse and detail. The palate is taut and crisp, bright, almost lucid red cherry fruit laced with orange zest, leading to a very refined and sustained finish. This is a lovely wine -- sensual yet understated. (NM)" (12/2015)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is significantly more elegance to the perfumed aromas of red cherry, rose petal, spice and sandalwood nuances. The detailed and highly energetic medium-bodied flavors possess a sleek, even silky mouth feel before culminating in a lingering and ever-so-mildly austere finale. This well-balanced effort should drink reasonably well after only 7 to 8 years of bottle age." (01/2016)

90-92 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. Brambly aromas of redcurrant, minerals and dried flowers. Tighter in the mouth than the premier crus here, showing less charm and early sweetness but noteworthy intensity and a firm shape. More minerals, dried flowers and earth than primary fruit. Charmes is never an opulent wine here, noted Rousseau, who pulled up some of his "tired old vines" after the 2011 harvest for replanting. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry. Not at all a feminine style of Charmes, no doubt owing to the high percentage of Mazoyères fruit. (ST)" (01/2016)

Jancis Robinson: "Unusually intense with strong cherry fruit and a great line of pure very ripe fruit. Very gourmand! Long. 17.5/20 points (JR)" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Musigny Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Musigny Grand Cru - 6 available ($549.00)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Don't Miss!* While highly complex this is cool to the point of only grudgingly revealing a strikingly layered combination of violets, rose petals, sandalwood, anise, clove, plum and dark currant scents. This is a big and overtly muscular wine with broad-shouldered and admirably concentrated flavors yet for all of the impressive size, weight and volume, the massively long finish is serene, even Zen-like. 2014 is a relatively seductive and forward vintage for this storied wine that I appreciate that calling a wine "forward" when it will likely need 20 years to fully mature is a relative concept!" (01/2016)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru had to be warmed up in my warm hands, since the wine had closed down a little in recent days. It has a very composed and quite dense bouquet with wild strawberry and blueberry scents, more opulence coming through with time, red rose. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a subtle marine influence flowing under the surface of red cherry and wild strawberry notes, an almost confit-like finish that feels dense and with plenty of substance. This is a sophisticated, almost saturnine Musigny -- a Pandora's Box of secrets that will only be revealed with age. (NM)" (12/2015)

95 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red Knockout nose offers most of the Musigny food groups: raspberry, cherry, earth, wild herbs, flowers and minerals, plus a leathery nuance Pungent and extremely intense but utterly weightless owing to its near-perfect balance of sweetness and juiciness Best today on the explosive, building back end, which offers a powerfully chewy, sappy impression but no rough edges Winemaker François Millet suggests waiting at least 10 to 15 years. 95+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "Needed to be warmed to encourage the aroma. Majestic rather than refreshing. Many blackberry layers under the majestic overlay. Real depth and tension. Lots of density. But refined on the end. Dry finish. Many a muscle. This is humming along. Lots of mineral limestone lift on the end. 18.5/20 points" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine de Montille Pommard 1er Cru "Rugiens-Bas" - 8 available ($149.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens includes one-third whole cluster fruit and 40% new oak. It has more red fruit than the 2014 Les Pezerolles with wild strawberry and Morelle cherry coming through, lending more ripeness and a touch more fruité. The palate is well balanced with a pleasing fleshiness and grip, very well focused and gaining density and structure towards the finish. The Rugiens terroir shows through beautifully here -- one of de Montille's best 2014s. (NM)" (12/2015)

93 points Vinous: "(vinified with one-third whole clusters; 40% new oak): Medium red More medicinal on the nose than the Volnay Taillepieds, offering fresh scents of black cherry, licorice and menthol Plush and thick yet fresh and light on its feet, offering excellent intensity and considerable charm to its flavors of dark cherry and earth over a firm mineral underpinning Sweet, aromatic and long on material The moderate use of stems here has preserved this wine's essential suppleness, (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine de Montille Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Malconsorts" - 11 available ($299.00)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1Er Cru les Malconsorts is 100% whole cluster, though you cannot tell that on the nose. It has wonderful definition that is very perfumed and floral, real pinoté here that just expands with each swirl. The palate is supple, saline on the entry with super-fine tannin, very pure and detailed with an exquisite, poised, sophisticated finish that is real Malconsorts. This is just sublime. (NM)" (12/2015)

94 points Vinous: "(vinified entirely with whole clusters; 55% new oak): Medium red, not particularly dark at the rim Slightly carnal aromas of raspberry, cherry, mocha, spices and sexy oak Boasts lovely sweetness and breadth but also terrific delicacy and definition to the fine-grained flavors of raspberry, spices, minerals and flowers Showing more personality today than the Clos du Roi even if it's built for a long life in bottle Finishes with seriously suave tannins and terrific length. (ST)" (03/2017)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* A discreet application of oak sets off the openly floral and spicy red currant, plum, sandalwood and Asian tea scents. There is impressive mid-palate density to the muscular and notably powerful medium weight plus flavors that seem to be constructed on a firm base of minerality, all wrapped in strikingly persistent finish that is austere but well-balanced thanks to the abundant level of sappy dry extract. Like the Clos du Roi, this is explicitly built-to-age and don't waste your precious bottles by drinking them too young." (03/2017)

2014 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru

2014 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru - 7 available ($199.99)

96 points Decanter: "Ethereal notes of blackberry but also floral lift with a lovely silky texture and a savoury/mineral finish. Great appeal already. (GB)" (02/2016)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is matured in 50% new oak and is 100% whole bunch fruit. It is blessed with a winsome bouquet. As usual, there is something very natural, unimposing and refined on the nose: blackberry and briary, a hint of graphite, a subtle leafiness maybe, and yet delineated and very pure. The palate is lively and energetic with crisp tannin, black rather than red fruit, linear and very classic in style with what you might call a "cool" marine-influenced finish that has fine salinity. What a great Clos des Lambrays that will put a smile on the face of those that adore refined Burgundy.Thierry Brouin has one year remaining as winemaker at Domaine de Lambrays and then a contractual two years as a consultant. 'I'll be 70 by then," he told me with a Gallic shrug of the shoulders. 'It's time for new blood.' What with Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from Clos des Tart, it appears that a chapter in Morey-Saint-Denis is closing and a new one will be opening. The question is: will the next chapter be as good a read as the last? I hope so. (NM)" (12/2015)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A notably spicy, fresh, cool and floral nose displays mostly red berry fruit scents that are trimmed in discreet wood notes. There is excellent cut and definition to the nicely rich and attractively textured flavors that culminate in a presently austere finale though I doubt that austerity will persist. This is a relatively fine and forward vintage for Clos des Lambrays and one that should be approachable after only 7 to 8 years of bottle age." (01/2016)

92 points Vinous: "(vinified entirely with whole clusters and aged in 50% new oak): Medium red. Highly complex, aromatic nose combines raspberry, underbrush, flowers and spices. Juicy, energetic and mineral-driven, if a bit youthfully imploded (and still affected by the bottling). Not a fat wine but with its flavors of red berries, mocha, earth and brown spices it's an essence of Morey-Saint-Denis. The acids and tannins are not at all aggressive, which should give this grand cru relatively early accessibility. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "Some evidence of new oak and drive here. Edgy with some nuttiness. Lots of savour and tight build. One of the most youthful 2014s. (JR)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru (1.5L) - 3 available Price: Hidden

94 points Wine Spectator: "Spicy, exuding sandalwood, nutmeg, vanilla, floral and wild cherry flavors. Silky in texture and firmly structured. Accents of bay leaf and green olive seep into the mix as this fans out on the long aftertaste. (BS)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine d'Eugénie Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

2014 Domaine d'Eugénie Clos Vougeot Grand Cru ($259.99)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is also quite aromatically restrained with its compact and dense mélange of freshly turned earth, humus, spice and plum-scented nose. There is excellent ripeness displayed by the bold, concentrated and robust broad-shouldered flavors that really vibrate on the complex and equally long finish. I very much like the delivery as this is the epitome of power without weight but it's more refined than most examples of Clos de Vougeot though note well that refined does not mean less ageworthy as this too will need plenty of cellaring to arrive at its peak." (01/2017)

94 points Vinous: "Good dark red Cool, youthfully inexpressive nose dominated by black cherry and smoky minerality; the strictest of these 2014s today (Mallard described it as Cistercian) Densely packed and very rich but classically dry, with savory minerality currently holding the upper hand over the wine's fruit This extremely backward wine is also showing its new oak element (85%) in the early going, with the firmly tannic finish displaying a note of caramel along with a strong impression of saline dry extract. 94+ (ST)" (03/2017)

K&L Notes: The first vintage under the Domaine d’Eugenie label was 2006, shortly after the owner of Château Latour purchased the property. Much work has gone on at the property since. Alex and I tasted this wine on our trip. Notes: Aromatic upfront with a solid core of mid-palate fruit, hints of spice, cola and a touch of mint--this wine has lots of concentration and depth of fruit. (Trey Beffa, K&L Burgundy Buyer)

2014 Domaine d'Eugénie Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru

2014 Domaine d'Eugénie Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru - 4 available ($299.99)

95 points Vinous: " Bright medium red Lovely violet lift to the subdued aromas of black cherry and minerals Sweeter and richer than the Echézeaux, but still restrained in the middle palate, offering notes of spicy red berries, flowers and minerals The above wine is more accessible today, but this wine impresses with its explosive, mounting peacock's tail of a finish, which stains the finish and lingers without any loss of energy This wine is built for a graceful evolution in the bottle but it's also amazingly showy today. (ST)" (03/2017)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A discreet but not invisible touch of wood frames exuberantly spicy and again markedly floral aromas of black cherry, violet, plum and anise. As is typically the case there is more size, weight and power to the medium weight plus flavors that also brim with dry extract that both coats the palate and largely buffers the firm tannic spine on the sleek and focused finale where a hint of bitter cherry appears. Patience will be required." (01/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is matured in four new barrels out of five. The nose is a little more open than the Echézeaux, fine delineation here, black cherries and raspberry, a touch of the sea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, gently gripping the mouth with a persistent, refined finish. I might have preferred a little less new oak in the final blend but the quality is here, if not that ineffable sophistication and grandeur. (NM)" (12/2015)

Jancis Robinson: "Just five barrels of which four are new. 33% whole bunch. Very deep blackish crimson. Rich brambly fruit with a nervy overlay. More race and integration than the Échezeaux. Really very fine. Complete. Finesse. Just falls away very, very slightly on the end but its pretty impressive! (17.5/20 points)" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru ($119.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has an attractive nose: more vibrant and nuanced than the Chapelle-Chambertin with more mineralité filtering through those lifted black and red fruit. The palate is crisp and tensile with fine tannin, juicy black fruit with just a touch of citrus lemon towards the finish. Yes, there is a bit of new oak to be assimilated (60%) but once it does, this will be a very fine Latricières that exudes class and a nascent sense of energy. (NM)" (12/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of cherry, earth, mineral and spice mark this youthful red. The cherry core continues through the lingering finish, while the structure builds and elements of oak, earth and mineral add interest. Burly in the end. (BS)" (06/2017)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " Fresh and relatively bright red berry fruit aromas laced with earth and wet stone nuances are trimmed in a noticeable if not aggressive toastiness. There is good underlying tension to the well-detailed and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess good punch on the overtly mineral-driven finale that exhibits slightly better overall depth and length and marginally firmer tannins." (01/2016)

91 points Vinous: "Good full medium red. Musky dark raspberry, strawberry, underbrush and crushed rock on the nose, plus hints of pepper, leather and spicy oak. Dense, juicy and penetrating but not at all hard, with strong smoky limestone minerality carrying through to a very long, saline aftertaste featuring serious ripe tannins that turned a bit edgy with air. The wine's saline element is nicely supported by its wild red berry fruit. 91+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine du Clos Frantin (Albert Bichot) Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru

2014 Domaine du Clos Frantin (Albert Bichot) Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru "Malconsorts" - 10 available ($159.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1Er Cru les Malconsorts has an elegant, refined bouquet with mineral-tinged red berry fruit, composed and a little backward but nicely focused. There is class here. The palate is supple on the entry with fine tannin, silky smooth in texture, very harmonious and nicely structured on the finish. This is a subtle Malconsorts, one that should not be underestimated. (NM)" (12/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich, smoky and structured wine. Black fruit and dark tannins form a dense texture with touches of licorice, spice and dark concentration. The acidity hints at the vintage giving a touch of freshness and lift. Drink this powerful wine from 2024. (RV)" (08/2016)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A top note of menthol adds to the breadth of the overtly spicy and fresh nose of dark currant, plum and violet scents. There is both good volume and muscle to the mineral-inflected big-bodied flavors that possess excellent power on the imposing and beautifully long finale. This beauty is built-to-age and is definitely going to need it." (01/2016)

89-92 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. Purple berries, red licorice, mint, violet and spicy oak on the perfumed nose and palate. Fat, sweet, deep and mouthfilling but still a bit youthfully tight; conveys a somewhat extractive quality but Chauvel noted that he does fewer pigeages for this wine than for the other Clos Frantin cuvées. Very rich, floral wine with captivating sweetness and serious but well-enrobed tannins. We always have to wait for the tannins to ripen here, noted Alberic Bichot, who add that this may be the last 2014 to be bottled. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru - 5 available ($279.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has an exquisite bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and cassis fruit. This is very elegant and linear, great precision here. The palate is very well balanced, structured with citrus-infused blackcurrant fruit. There is that titillating prickle of salinity on the finish, a Mazoyères-like Charmes that should age well over the next 15-20 years. " (12/2015)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is just enough reduction present to mask the fruit though it does seem ripe. Otherwise there is excellent freshness and vivacity to the sleek and silky middle weight flavors that are focused and mildly austere on the linear finish. This is going to require a few years of bottle age to flesh out and add depth." (01/2016)

91 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red. A touch of leathery reduction to the aromas of raspberry, rose petal and smoky, truffley earth. Currently showing its darker Mazoyères side (which compromises roughly one-third of the blend) in the mouth, along with complex soil tones. This firmly built wine finishes with serious spreading tannins and lingering notes of leather and smoke. 91+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaux Monts" - 3 available ($249.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* A strikingly spicy array of very fresh dark berry fruit, violet, lavender and anise is also trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is more volume and mid-palate concentration to the caressing and mouth coating flavors that display ample minerality on the balanced, deep and impressively long finale. This isn't quite as intense as the Combottes but it is more concentrate." (01/2016)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru les Beaux Monts has a very attractive bouquet, pure and sensual with black cherries, boysenberry and a touch of blueberry. Understated but quite compelling. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, silky in texture, beautifully balanced with very well judged acidity with a touch of salinity towards the finish. This is a very well crafted Beaumonts that deserves several years in bottle. (NM)" (12/2015)

92 points Vinous: "Bright red-ruby. Very pure aromas of raspberry, red licorice and smoky minerals, plus a hint of animal fur. Plush, rich and fine-grained, offering a silky, spherical texture to its expressive flavors of raspberry, smoke, minerals, game and mocha. Finishes with broad, building tannins and terrific persistence. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "Heady meaty nose. Liquorice with even a hint of smoked fish! Rich and opulent underneath the Vosne raciness on top. Dry finish. Great vibrant undertow. 17.5/20 points (JR)" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru - 6 available ($329.99)

94-97 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A kaleidoscopically spicy and broad-ranging nose is composed of pure and elegant red and dark berries along with hints of game, smoke, sandalwood, dried flowers and orange peel. The refined, intense and mineral-driven imposingly-scaled flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering stunningly good length on the delineated finish that just goes on and on. This is a remarkable wine in every sense though once again it is not for the faint of heart as this too is going to require seriously extended cellaring to shed its fine but dense tannic spine. Patience, and lots of it, is absolutely essential." (01/2016)

96 points Wine Spectator: "A whiff of chalk in the aroma leads to flavors of strawberry, currant and cherry in this racy red. There is an element of tension between fruit and mineral elements, offering a silky texture and a dense matrix of tannins. The long aftertaste is resonant and compelling. Best from 2023 through 2045." (01/2017)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Big, ripe and smoky, this wine is generous while having great freshness. It's packed with fresh strawberries and raspberries along with powerful tannins. The combination of structure and great fruit will allow this wine to age. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (08/2016)

94 points Vinous: "Bright, full red. Alluring, terroir-driven aromas of raspberry, minerals, dried flowers, smoky oak and game. Supple on entry, then reticent and taut in the middle, but already showing outstanding energy and depth, not to mention a slightly musky wildness, to its flavors of raspberry, smoky oak and dried flowers. Between the wine's firm acidity, great mineral verve, strong tongue-dusting tannins and finishing grip, this outstanding Clos de Bèze is going to require considerable patience and should evolve positively for up to three decades. My bottle held up for days in the recorked bottle. 94+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" - 6 available Price: Hidden

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* An overtly floral and spicy array is comprised by notes of cool and ultra-pure red currant, cherry, sandalwood and tea. There is superb detail and energy to the wonderfully delineated, pure and stony flavors that possess simply outstanding depth and length on the lacy yet notably firm finale that is so harmonious that the word Zen comes to mind. In a word, brilliant." (01/2016)

91-93 points Vinous: "Bright red-ruby. Pungent raspberry and stony lift on the nose. Black raspberry and mineral flavors project a compelling combination of sweet and saline elements and vibrate on the palate. Finishes with outstanding subtle saline persistence and floral lift; really perks up the salivary glands. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru - 12 available Price: Hidden

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is enough reduction present to suppress the underlying fruit. On the plus side there is a lovely sense of tension to the very fresh, focused and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that possess both first-class volume and precision, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and explosively long finale. The tannins are relatively fine-grained for the appellation but note well that this is a take-no-prisoners example and as such it would be pointless to open a bottle before its 10th birthday." (01/2016)

94 points Wine Spectator: "A velvety and opulent red, boasting flavors of black cherry, raspberry, currant and spice. This is elegant, showing finesse and beautiful harmony, backed by a deftly integrated structure and discreet oak. Exhibits fine length, with lingering fruit and spice details. (BS)" (03/2017)

90-93 points Vinous: "Full ruby-red. Deep black cherry aroma conveys a chocolatey ripeness. A very sweet Clos Vougeot in a powerful, deep style, offering rich, fruit-driven flavors of black cherry and black raspberry. Fine-grained tannins dust the teeth. Impressively fat, ripe Clos Vougeot if a bit chunky for grand cru. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru (Monopole)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru (Monopole) Price: Hidden

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A fresh, cool and moderately restrained nose speaks of various red and dark berries along with plenty of iron-inflected earth, animale and pretty floral nuances. The lush, even opulent flavors certainly don't lack for size, weight and power as they coat the palate while buffering the notably firm tannic spine on the muscular, driving and wonderfully persistent finish. This too is impressively concentrated and built-to-age." (01/2016)

94 points Decanter: "Sweet spicy oaky nose with vibrant black cherry fruit; stylish. Rich, suave, full-bodied plate boasting fine-grained tannins that dont lack texture or force. Good acidity and length." (03/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A flagship of the Faiveley range, this is a structured wine with great acidity and beautiful perfumes. The wine is dense, already balanced with the red fruits shining through the tannins. It will develop slowly and will not be ready to drink before 2023." (08/2016)

93 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red, the darkest of a flight of Corton grand crus. Brooding aromas of black cherry, licorice, black pepper and minerals. Suave and fine-grained but very backward; blacker in its fruit character than most Cortons in 2014, with an impression of peppery acidity energizing the middle palate. Finishes very savory, dry, firm and long, with a repeating licorice note and a strong sense of bound-up energy. This dense, youthfully taut, powerfully structured wine is going to require a lot of patience and may ultimately merit an even higher score. 93+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Faiveley Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru - 12 available ($229.99)

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A highly reserved, cool and super-fresh nose only reluctantly gives up the essence of red cherry, pomegranate, wet stone and soft earth aromas. The supporting tannins are even finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot and the minerality is much more pronounced on the delineated middle weight flavors that seem to vibrate in the mouth before terminating in an austere, saline and hugely long finish. In the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot the tannic spine is fine but quite prominent and plenty of patience is a must." (01/2016)

92-94 points Vinous: "Dark red. Very pure but subdued aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and minerals. Suave and wonderfully precise on the palate, conveying lovely inner-mouth rose petal lift to the flavors of raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Totally different in style from the Clos Vougeot and Echézeaux and a step up in precision, finesse and sophistication. The very long, rising, saline finish perks up the taste buds. My projected score may prove to be overly conservative. (ST)" (01/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautiful, ripe and floral wine. It does have structure although the main focus is on the rich, juicy fruit. Berries and red plums push through the rounded tannins. It will age magnificently, with great richness. (RV)" (08/2016)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru - 11 available ($259.99)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Don't Miss!* A more expressive if less elegant nose features much more sauvage character on the dark berry fruit, humus, underbrush and smoked meat scents. The rich, full-bodied and distinctly powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess evident muscularity along with ample minerality that really comes to the fore on the gorgeously complex, intense and explosively persistent finale. This is a very serious wine and a classic Mazis and I emphatically underscore that this is going to need a very long time in a cool cellar to arrive at its peak." (01/2016)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* This wine is concentrated and dense. Big tannins flow up through this wine, giving shape to the ripe black fruit. In the back, acidity dominates bright red berries and the potential for a rich, generous future. The wine will age over many years. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (08/2016)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Brilliant aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry, currant and mineral highlight this complex red, which is intense and elegant, building to a kaleidoscopic finish. Structured and harmonious, with terrific aging potential. Best from 2020 through 2039. (BS)" (04/2017)

93 points Vinous: "Bright, full red. Musky, complex aromas of raspberry, dried flowers, crushed rock, black pepper, game, dark chocolate and earth. Shows much more definition and inner-mouth lift than the Charmes, with the peppery quality and firm underlying minerality energizing the middle palate. Savory, concentrated, layered and deep, with terrific berry intensity and a hint of cocoa powder. Taut and classically dry but not particularly austere. Finishes with serious, fine-grained tannins and terrific rising length. This very tight wine will need extended cellaring to soften and expand. 93+ points. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Saint Georges" - 8 available ($139.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* A broad-ranging and highly complex nose offers up aromas of red currant, plum, earth and game hints. There is excellent power, punch and delineation to the more mineral-inflected medium weight plus flavors that exhibit excellent persistence on the beautifully well-balanced finish. This is a combination of muscle and grace as the power is delivered without weight. Worth checking out." (05/2016)

93 points Vinous: "(entirely destemmed; Les Saint-Georges is shown in larger type face on the label than Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru, in tribute to this vineyard's likely future elevation to grand cru status): Bright full red. Laid-back, subtly complex scents of dark raspberry, blueberry and violet, complicated by an inky nuance and a suggestion of piment d'Espelette. Intensely flavored and light on its feet, displaying excellent definition but also a wonderfully fine-grained texture to its berry, spice, floral and mineral flavors. This wine conveys a weightless quality and an element of finesse not shown by the other Nuits-Saint-Georges crus here but also more sweetness, pliancy and depth. Finishes with very suave tannins and terrific perfumed length. Balanced from the start but built for aging. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Gruenchers" (Previously $230) - 3 available ($171.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Gruenchers possesses one of the most exotic, richer set of aromatics from Jean-Marie this year -- kirsch and blood orange, a touch of soy in the background, an infectious feistyness. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy and sweet, generous with layers of macerated red cherries and strawberry with a sorbet-like freshness on the finish. It's the kind of Chambolle you'll want to cuddle. (NM)" (12/2015)

89-92 points Vinous: "Medium red. High-pitched aromas of blueberry, cherry, spices and minerals. Broad, supple and dry, showing lovely spicy lift and mid-palate energy. Spreads out horizontally on the persistent finish, which features a fine dusting of tannins. Very sexy wine. (ST)" (01/2016)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here too there is just enough wood to notice on the pretty nose that combines notes of plum, violet, spice and red currant. There is excellent intensity to the relatively generous medium weight flavors where the underlying minerality adds a sense of lift to the dusty, complex and well-balanced finale. This is textbook Gruenchers which is to say a Chambolle of volume and richness..." (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru

2014 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru - 7 available Price: Hidden

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a fragrant, floral bouquet with touches of blueberry, violet, wet limestone and effervescent blood orange. There is simply wonderful delineation here. The palate is very well structured, linear and strict in accordance with the vintage, driving acidity here maintaining the freshness with superb minerality on the finish. Oh yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. (NM)" (12/2015)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Don't Miss!* Here the nose is more expressive than it usually is at this point in its evolution with an unusually perfumed and highly spiced collection of dark currant, plum, violet, earth and sandalwood scents. The sleek, cool and again relatively elegant big-bodied flavors possess strikingly good mid-palate concentration before delivering flat out superb complexity on the muscular but balanced and hugely long finish. This terrific effort is a definite 'wow' wine and built to enjoy an extremely long life. (AM)" (01/2016)

95 points Vinous: "Dark red. A sexy hint of woodsmoke complements sweet scents of cherry liqueur and purple berries. Tight-grained and fine, but with terrific inner-mouth lift to its dark berry, spice and violet flavors. Wonderfully juicy, lively wine with a light touch. Not a fleshy powerhouse, and not showing the obvious mineral structure today of the Ruchottes-Chambertin, but this utterly seamless wine is richer and fruitier. The noble tannins are almost invisible today and yet the finish boasts terrific thrust. This knockout will need a solid decade to approach maturity. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "Very sumptuous and serious. Lots of rich smooth fruit with lots of red plummy fruit. Very crisp and precise. Lots of layers and interest here. Very long. 18.5/20 points (JR)" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St-Georges" ($139.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot Outstanding* Once again there is subtle wood present on the spicy, cool and beautifully well-layered nose of ripe dark currant, plum, violet and humus scents. There is a sleek mouth feel to the solidly concentrated and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that exhibit outstanding length on the markedly firm finale that is also impeccably well-balanced. Ample patience absolutely required." (01/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges has a perfumed nose with blackberry and bilberry fruit, tangible mineral scents, very fine delineation, cold flint and limestone emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, impressive structure, cool, calm and collected, building towards a crisp, tensile tobacco-tinged finish that is deceptively powerful. This will have a lot more to give after bottling, seems resentful that someone would awaken it from its barrel slumber. (NM)" (12/2015)

93 points Vinous: "Medium red. Reticent but complex nose offers high-pitched scents of raspberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and minerals. At once dense and juicy, displaying a distinctly sappy character but also a refined texture to its intense raspberry, spice, mineral and soil flavors. This very classy wine mounts slowly on the suavely tannic, vibrant finish. Beautifully balanced already but there's more to come with bottle age. From a crop level of just 26 hectoliters per hectare, according to Gregory Gouges, who noted that these 50-year-old vines always produce a light load of grapes. I'd love to taste this wine next to its 2015 sibling in about ten years. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Pruliers" ($89.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers was showing more fruit intensity on the nose than the Porrets, the fruit more black, perhaps a little more oaky than others (although Gregory Gouges told me that this probably derives from the wooden vat after racking). The palate is very harmonious in the mouth. There are supple tannins and good density here with silky textured, sorbet-like freshness on the finish. This is a lovely wine from Gouges, one of their best in this vintage. (NM)" (12/2015)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* A subtle application of wood frames the spicy red and dark berry fruit that is liberally laced by notes of earth and game. I very much like the intensity and focused power of the concentrated medium weight flavors that display moderate rusticity and a touch of austerity on the impressively complex and persistent finale. Patience required." (01/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A firmly structured red, sporting cherry, black currant, violet and mineral flavors. On the austere side, yet fluid, with a long, chalk and stone-infused finish. (BS)" (03/2017)

90 points Vinous: "Red with ruby tones; a bit darker than the 2015. Very reticent nose conveys a plummy ripeness along with hints of redcurrant, earth and tobacco. Broad, dry and mouthfilling but stubbornly backward today and in need of patience. Still, the tannins are not particularly dry or hard, suggesting that this classically austere but ripe Nuits-Saint-Georges will repay patience. Cropped at just 34 hectoliters per hectare, according to Gregory Gouges. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "The deepest crimson of these samples, yet still very light crimson. Meaty, more concentrated nose than the other Gouges 2014s tasted in early 2016. Some real concentration of fruit and discernible spice, bitter cherries and relatively firm tannin. Relatively backward with sandy tannins and real persistence. But still the unforced, delicate new Gouges style." (02/2016)

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains" ($109.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot Outstanding* Here too there is a subtle application of wood setting off the intensely spicy and overtly sauvage aromas of mostly cassis and black raspberry aromas that are also liberally laced with warm earth nuances. The muscular big-bodied flavors possess real power and punch along with ample minerality before terminating in a hugely long, complex and well-balanced finale. As it always is this is distinctly old school in style and will definitely require extended cellaring." (01/2016)

91-94 points Vinous: "Dark red-ruby. Tight, medicinal aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate and menthol. Very rich and deep, with captivating sweetness cut by medicinal menthol and minerals. Highly concentrated, dense and broad but uncompromisingly dry. Finishes very long and perfumed, with serious saline tension. This very impressive premier cru has a big tannic structure and may well close down after the bottling. (ST)" (01/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru les Vaucrains, cropped at 26 hectoliters per hectare, was just a little loose-knit on the nose when I tasted it at the domaine, perhaps missing the cohesion of the Pruliers. The palate pulls things together with slightly savory red berry fruit, fine tannin and well judged acidity. There is a chalky note coming through on the finish and a spiciness that comes through on the aftertaste. Again, classic in style, at the moment the palate is leading the way and waiting for the nose to catch up. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Domaine Joseph Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers" ($109.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "***Sweet Spot - Outstanding***A background but not invisible application of wood easily allows the cool and pure essence of red and dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced by almost pungent earth, animale, humus and underbrush nuances to shine. There is terrific punch and muscularity to the big-bodied, intense and mineral-driven flavors that display excellent delineation on the beautifully complex and hugely long finale. This is a very serious and built-to-age effort that will require plenty of patience before it reaches its peak." (01/2016)

90-92 points Vinous: "Good full red. Very concentrated, perfumed aromas of raspberry, flowers and game. Sweet and fat with fruit; boasts lovely density of material but seems a bit obvious today. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and excellent length. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Ursules" - 8 available ($79.99)

95 points James Suckling: "The perfumes to this red are fantastic with dried strawberries, violets and dried ginger. Full body, a dense center palate and a cord of fruit and ripe tannins. Gorgeous now and delicious but will be even better in 2021." (04/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Editors' Choice* This dense and structured wine comes from a small walled vineyard within the larger Les Vignes Franches premier cru, partially owned by Louis Jadot. Robust tannins frame its rich, juicy black fruit, showing potential for long aging. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (03/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Offering cherry, strawberry, spice and earth aromas and flavors, this is taut and elegant, with a mineral streak on the firm, chalky aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2033. (BS)" (04/2017)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules has a clean and precise bouquet in the making, with subtle rose petal scents infusing the red cherry and strawberry fruit -- a mineral seam just underneath. The palate is supple on the entry, fleshy so that you almost miss the structure that frames this Clos des Ursules. There is good tension here with a twist of citrus lemon on the finish. This is impressive and long term. (NM)" (12/2015)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* The wood treatment is somewhat more evident though not really invasive on the spicy aromas of plum, red currant and dark cherry that are trimmed in earth and discreet forest floor hints. There is fine volume to the delicious and refined flavors that display a light minerality on the mildly austere finish that exhibits excellent depth and length. Note that this moderately firm effort will need a minimum of 5 to 6 years of bottle age first and should repay 10 to 12." (04/2016)

91 points Vinous: "(just one barrel made): Medium red. At once cool and slightly liqueur-like on the nose, offering scents of redcurrant, spices and iron. Broad, silky and surprisingly plush, displaying savory, soil-driven notes of red berries, exotic spices and earth, plus a touch of herbs. Slightly high-toned in a positive way, with its subtle sweetness nicely cut by vinosity. The lingering, savory finish features dusty, tongue-coating tannins. No shortage of flavor or texture here. This has the structure for mid-term aging. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Price: Hidden

93-96 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. The aromas of black cherry, blackberry and menthol show a medicinal reserve. Superconcentrated, chewy and fresh, offering a near-perfect balance of primary fruits and saline, soil-driven minerality. Jadot waited longer than in past years to harvest their fruit in Chambolle-Musigny, said Barnier, noting that this represents 'a bit of a change in our pattern.' This very rich, long Bonnes-Mares is wonderfully sweet and full, not to mention surprisingly tastable at this early stage." (01/2016)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is almost always one of Jadot's best wines and so it is again in 2014 with its softly spicy nose that combines notes of sandalwood and earth with those of both red and dark berries and a discreet application of oak. There is excellent richness, size, weight and power to the full-bodied and admirably concentrated flavors that are shaped by a very firm tannic spine on the hugely long, austere and beautifully well-balanced finale. Once again, patience required." (04/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has a very succinct bouquet with red plum and blueberry fruit that are nicely defined, the oak nicely integrated, though not as extroverted as other Bonnes-Mares that I have tasted. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, supple tannin. I like the acidity here, although it remains surprisingly linear and contained on the finish when you are anticipating that 'peacock's tail' that flourishes, as one associates with Bonnes-Mares. Perhaps too well behaved at the moment? Hopefully it will let its hair down with bottle age. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Domaine Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru - 3 available ($169.99)

95 points James Suckling: "So glorious with dried-strawberry and -cherry character. Medium to full body, ultra-polished and beautiful tannins and hints of stones and cedar. Very pretty and refined. Lovely length. Drink or hold." (04/2017)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* The five acres of vines owned by Louis Jadot in this vineyard make this rich, bold, structured wine. Floral and intensely perfumed, with ripe red berry fruit, its ripe while maintaining the intense acidity of the vintage. With all that power comes great longevity. Drink from 2026. (RV)" (03/2017)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a pretty, pure and nuanced bouquet that unfolds with time in the glass: red cherries, fresh strawberry and limestone scents, later a touch of rose petal. The palate is smooth and supple with good density, quite saline in the mouth with darker berried fruit fanning out towards the finish that has impressive salinity on the aftertaste. Excellent. (NM)" (12/2015)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Noticeable but not dominant oak frames a restrained, cool and well-layered nose of earthy red currant and discreet spice elements. I very much like the textured mouth feel of the lightly mineral-inflected and notably taut full-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract on the concentrated, powerful and youthfully austere finish. This is a classic rendition of Clos de Vougeot that is very much built-to-age and will definitely need it too." (04/2016)

94 points Decanter: "Black fruit and spice, a richly dense texture and a savory finish. Beautiful." (02/2016)

91 points Vinous: "Medium red. Brooding, medicinal aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol, fresh herbs and spices; much less expressive and floral than the Echézeaux. Juicy, delineated and tight, even a bit hard-edged, not showing the sweetness or inner-mouth floral lift of the Echézeaux but with plenty of intensity to its red berry and spice flavors. And brisk, minerally and precise on the rising finish. Will this wine deepen and soften with extended bottle aging? 91+ (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Domaine Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St-Jacques" Price: Hidden

95 points James Suckling: "So floral, like a bouquet of flowers. Fills the glass. Full-bodied, yet beautifully balanced and subtle. Such purity of fruit and polish. I can't wait on this. Drink or hold. Will age beautifully." (04/2017)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* An airy and markedly floral nose also reveals spicy notes of both red and dark currant, spice and plenty of earth character. There is first-rate richness to the suave yet mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that somehow manage to retain fine delineation while coating the palate with dry extract on the powerful yet elegant and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is a muscular but refined wine that should improve in years to come." (04/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This vineyard is widely regarded for its quality worthy of grand cru status, and this wine, from vines owned by Louis Jadot, is a fine example. It is both structured and richly fruitydense with ripe red fruit flavors cut with acidity. A dry core of tannins will allow this impressive wine to age. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (03/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe, round style, this red boasts floral, cherry and berry flavors allied to a silky texture. Firm and vibrant, with an underlying mineral element. Just a bit austere now on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. (BS)" (04/2017)

93 points Vinous: "Good bright medium red. Aromas of raspberry, rose petal, minerals and crushed stone convey a very sexy, slightly high-toned liqueur-like quality. Dense, fine-grained and taut, displaying piquant mineral energy and mouthwatering acidity to its flavors of raspberry, cherry and blood orange. Really compelling inner-mouth tension here. This firmly tannic, classic 2014 finishes with lovely rising floral length. I would not be at all surprised if a decade of cellaring brought an even higher score. 93+ (ST)" (03/2017)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques has a clean and precise bouquet, quite backward compared to recent vintages, and a little terse with black cherry and bergamot notes developing in the glass. The palate is balanced with good density and volume; there is firm tannin that imparts good backbone to this Clos St-Jacques... (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Domaine Louis Jadot Le Musigny Grand Cru - 5 available Price: Hidden

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Musigny Grand Cru has a pure, enticing, quite regal bouquet with red plum and blackberry scents, wild hedgerow and wilted rose petals -- all very nuanced, so much so that you almost miss its intrinsic intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well judged acidity and tangible mineralité, especially on the precise finish that carries enormous persistence as it fans out. (NM)" (12/2015)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A gorgeously complex if highly restrained nose displays a broad mix of dark berries, plum, earth, spice and Asian-style tea notes. The wonderfully rich, full-bodied and powerful flavors are shaped by fine-grained tannins that possess excellent phenolic ripeness before culminating in a spectacularly persistent and stony finish as this really fans out on the palate. Simply put, this is magnificent." (04/2016)

92-95 points Vinous: "Deep, dark red. Brooding, bound-up nose suggests dark fruits, roast coffee, mocha and licorice. Firm, muscular and extremely unevolved; displays the full ripeness and outstanding inner-mouth tension of Jadot's other 2014s from Chambolle-Musigny but this is a bit youthfully brutal today and very hard to taste. The blackberry and black cherry flavors are currently cut off by the wine's powerful tannic spine. This wine may need 15 years or more of cellaring. (ST)" (01/2016)

94 points Decanter: "Pure candied red fruit with a tight but perfectly ripe texture and a savoury finish. Intense and elegant." (02/2016)

2014 Domaine Michel Gros Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Brulées" - 10 available ($129.99)

95 points Decanter: "Lovely sweet blackberry fruit, cured meat notes, a velvety texture and savoury finish. A wine of great charm that illustrates well how this estate punches above its weight." (02/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A fluid, succulent red, featuring black cherry, black currant, licorice and spice flavors. Sophisticated and silky, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste of dark fruit and oak spice. (BS)" (04/2017)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A subtle but not invisible note of wood serves as a backdrop for the overtly spicy and quite floral aromas of lavender, lilac and violet that add breadth to the mostly dark berry fruit scents. There is excellent richness and volume to the suave and caressing medium weight flavors that brim with tannin-buffering dry extract, all wrapped in a fleshy if mildly austere finale that delivers very fine persistence. This is sufficiently structured to require at least a decade of bottle age." (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Michel Gros Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Clos de Reas" ($139.99)

94 points Decanter: "Very scented black fruit but also some wild spices and a silky texture with a savoury finish." (02/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Black cherry, spice and earth flavors are matched to a dense structure here, with concentration and subtle power building up to the finish. (BS)" (04/2017)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Like several of the wines in the range the nose is a markedly pungent combination of wood toast and reduction that renders it impossible to assess. Otherwise there is a more refined mouth feel to the slightly less concentrated medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a velvety, dusty and palate coating finale that is a bit less structured." (01/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Clos des Réas comes from Michel's triangular, walled monopole towards the south of the village. It has a slight stemminess on the nose that is nicely defined, very natural, the fruit black rather than red, evolving a light marine accent with time. The palate is energetic and tensile on the entry with blackcurrant, raspberry and a touch of bitter lemon towards the chalky textured finish. This is quite a complex Clos des Réas this year from Michel and one I look forward to revisiting once in bottle. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Domaine Perrot Minot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes - 6 available ($359.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "(from a 1.5 ha parcel situated directly across from Domaine Rousseau's parcel of Chambertin) This is cool and pure to the point of being almost timid with its restrained array of red currant, pomegranate, earthy and softly sauvage-inflected nose. There is fine intensity to the sleek and satin-textured flavors that are muscular yet dance across the palate on the saline and wonderfully refreshing finish. This is clearly built-to-age yet it's already inviting. Drink: 2024+" (01/2016)

93 points Vinous: "Bright, full red. Captivating perfumed scents of wild strawberry, raspberry, white flowers, spices and white pepper, with darker notes of cherry and menthol emerging with aeration. In a distinctly juicy, minerally, cool style compared to the broader 2015, but with terrific intensity to its youthfully imploded red fruit flavors. Powerful crushed rock and saline mineral flavors give this wine's finish outstanding energy and lift. Already compellingly floral and perfumed, this wine will nonetheless require patience owing to its substantial dusty tannins. (ST)" (03/2017)

Jancis Robinson: "Not from the climat Les Gémeaux, but from the real La Chapelle climat. Bright crimson. Racy and tight. Still the red-fruit candy thread running through even this wine but with more substance and potential for ageing. Grainy and energetic. Tannic on the end." (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Perrot-Minot Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru - 6 available ($449.99)

96 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red. Much more closed on the nose than the Mazoyères-Chambertin, offering aromas of dried rose petal and smoky minerality. Less demonstrative on the palate as well, but aeration brings up wonderfully intense, penetrating flavors of red berries, brown spices, peony, pepper and smoky minerality. Conveys a powerful impression of dry extract in a very silky, subtly sweet package. Finishes very long, with noble tannins, repeating red fruits and a vibrant spiciness that perks up the salivary glands. This knockout wine is fresher in bottle that it was from barrel in late 2015, when it was more dominated by lower-toned soil components. (ST)" (03/2017)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Vieilles Vignes has a very classy, sophisticated bouquet with vibrant red berry fruit infused with palpable mineral tones -- focused and complex. The palate has a sense of energy and animation on the entry with sorbet-fresh red fruit, orange zest and a touch of spice, the mouth tingling with the sensation; although, it segues into a more austere and structured finish, as if remembering its manners. This is an intriguing and cerebral Clos-de-Bèze. (NM)" (12/2015)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again the highly expressive nose can be aptly described as ultra-floral with a huge range of spice elements on the airy and cool aromas of red and dark berry liqueur scents. There is that beguiling sense of underlying tension to the firmly stony and beautifully well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb length on the seamlessly well-balanced finale. This will need to develop more depth to merit the top of the range but the underlying material is certainly present such that it could occur. Drink: 2029+" (01/2016)

Jancis Robinson: "This really makes you take notice! Satin texture and very savoury. Grapes have to be fresh. Very exciting, even explosive. Very cool but concentrated. Very long indeed. 18+/20 points" (11/2015)

2014 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Bousselots" ($89.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Bousselots comes from vines on more gravelly, silty soils. As such, it displays more volume and fruité on the nose compared to the 2014 Les Chaignots. This comes out and greets you with open arms with lovely, sumptuous blackberry and crushed strawberry aromas. The palate is very precise with fine tannin, black rather than red fruit with blood orange surfacing towards the precise finish, which does not have enormous persistence -- but it has so much freshness and elegance. This is just superb. (NM)" (12/2015)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Noticeable if not generous wood frames the super fresh nose of mostly red berry fruit aromas that are trimmed in discreet notes of earth and tea. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the relatively fine detailed flavors where again the tannins are on the finer side. This is both delicious and well-balanced and should reward 6 to 9 years of cellar time." (01/2015)

91 points Vinous: "Bright red. Very reduced nose is dominated by leather, meat and smoky oak. Then surprisingly supple and creamy in the mouth; much more tender than the Chaignots but also sweeter and fresher. This very round 2014 finishes with lingering ripe red fruit flavors. (ST)" (01/2016)

2014 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru

2014 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Cailles" - 10 available ($119.50)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*** Sweet Spot *** A more elegant and more expressive nose evidences distinctly floral notes to the spicy red and dark currant aromas that possess excellent complexity. I very much like the silky texture of the concentrated and opulent mid-palate of the delicious and equally complex middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality onto the beautifully long and balanced though mildly austere finish. As is usually the case this is built-to-age and will definitely need it. I would add that among the Chevillon big boys though that if you were going to try one young I would suggest this one." (01/2016)

91-93 points Vinous: "Dark red with ruby highlights. Very reticent nose hint sat candied berries and smoky minerals. Then sweet, sappy and brisk on the palate, delivering an exciting balance of sucrosité and mineral-driven acidity. The black raspberry and crushed-stone flavors mount impressively on the long, refined back end. Shows a medicinal reserve that suggests this wine will be a slow developer, but even today the tannins are nicely buffered by fruit. (ST)" (01/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Cailles has a more reticent bouquet at the moment, a little sultry and broody. The palate is structured with chalky tannin and a crisp bitter edge that cuts through the black fruit; there is an austere finish that suggests this cuvée will need 2-4 years in bottle before it is ready. This is an absorbing, almost saturnine Nuits Saint Georges. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" - 5 available ($499.99)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*** Don't Miss - Outstanding ***This is also gorgeously spicy with ripe and very fresh black cherry, red currant and sandalwood aromas. There is superb intensity to the overtly mineral-driven and beautifully delineated middle weight flavors that are shaped by a very firm but not hard tannic spine as there is good phenolic maturity here. I very much like the balance of the long and quite serious finale that is an exercise in harmony, indeed this could aptly be described as quite Zen-like. In a word, brilliant." (04/2014)

2014 Louis Jadot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" Price: Hidden

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Amoureuses has a more engaging nose than the 2014 Bonnes-Mares at the moment, with vivacious blueberry and raspberry coulis scents, and an underlying mineralité that draws you in. The palate is medium-bodied with crisper tannin than the aforementioned grand cru, fine tension, quite linear in style with a tingle of spice towards the gentle but sophisticated finish. It is a more restrained Amoureuses from Jadot, but one exuding class. (NM)" (12/2015)

92-94 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. Scintillating perfume of fresh raspberry, strawberry, rose petal, fresh mint and white pepper. Conveys outstanding energy, precision and lift in the mouth, combining a deep impression of soil-driven salinity with treble notes of raspberry, blood orange and crushed stone. Winemaker Frédéric Barnier noted that his 2014s from Chambolle-Musigny are very closed and slow to evolve. Finishes with superb rising length, but the youthfully edgy tannins need to be refined by further élevage. (ST)" (01/2016)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot Outstanding* A beautifully complex nose features notes of spice, violet and lilac on the ripe and cool essence of red pinot and plum suffused aromas. There is fine detail and a palpable sense of energy to the elegant but firm medium weight flavors that brim with minerality on the balanced and wonderfully long finale. This exercise in finesse, harmony and grace should amply reward 10 to 12 years of cellar time." (04/2016)

2014 Louis Jadot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru - 4 available ($249.99)

98 points Decanter: "What a wine! Beautiful savoury nuances where delicate hints of umami complement minerally red and black fruit. Incredible complexity and amazing silky texture. For me (GB), this is the wine of the vintage, showing supreme elegance in all aspects. Extremely rarely do I give 99 or 100 points to very young wines, but I could easily have broken my own rule here. Exceptional!" (02/2016)

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this are so complex and spellbinding with rose petals, sandalwood and stones. Hints of almonds. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and an intense finish. Shows fantastic tension and compression. Precise line to the wine. Drink in 2022." (04/2017)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* Louis Jadot 2014 Clos de la Roche. The largest of the four grands crus in Morey-St-Denis, this vineyard gives the most structured wines. This bottling, with its tannins and power, is no exception. While it shows plenty of rich black, perfumed fruit, it also has an immense structure of tight tannins are balanced by juicy acidity. Drink from 2027. (RV)" (03/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Initially dominated by oak, this needs air to reveal the macerated cherry, strawberry, mineral and earth flavors. Tightly wound, yet the ripe fruit shows depth. Sweet fruit and dense tannins define the finish. Patience is required. (BS)" (03/2017)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Reduction presently masks the nose though there is a really lovely mouth feel to the medium-bodied and ultra-suave flavors thanks mostly to the notably fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a very firm, serious, powerful and austere finish. This is a bit less concentrated than the Clos St. Denis but even so plenty of patience will still be required." (04/2016)

92-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savory on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervosité or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine, but I would like to see more nuance develop during the rest of its élevage. (NM)" (12/2015)

90 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. A strong element of spicy oak currently overshadows red raspberry, red licorice and minerals on the nose. Slightly liqueur-like but not especially complex, with savory but very oaky red berry fruit flavors dominating. I find this a bit ponderous and lacking in refinement. It's also a touch dry on the finish, as there's not as much supporting mid-palate depth as in the top crus vinified by Jadot from estate vineyards. (ST)" (03/2017)

2014 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers" - 4 available ($119.99)

91-94 points Vinous: "Bright, dark red. Highly complex, expressive scents and flavors of black cherry, blueberry, blackberry, licorice, animal fur and brown spices. Rich, pliant and slightly wild in the mouth, conveying compelling Gevrey perfume. Very suave for Cazetiers and most impressive on the back end, which features serious but smooth tannins and rising, palate-staining length. Cazetiers is our most consistent Gevrey premier cru after Clos Saint-Jacques, notes winemaker Frédéric Barnier. (ST)" (01/2016)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* Here strong reduction renders the nose completely unreadable. However there is good freshness and excellent intensity to the vibrant, detailed and impressively scaled broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent power and plenty of underlying tension on the focused, youthfully austere and impeccably well-balanced finish. This firmly structured and beautifully persistent effort is really very good and worth a look." (04/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1Er Cru Cazetiers is a large step up from the village cru with a different level of tension and mineralité. The palate is very cohesive with supple tannin, very well judged acidity, real density and poise, with a dash of white pepper and sage on the finish. There is a lot of charm and passion about this Cazetiers and it comes highly recommended. (NM)" (12/2015)

2014 Louis Jadot Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaux Monts" - 5 available ($139.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru les Beaux Monts has a clean and precise bouquet, tightly wound at first, perhaps aromatics with a leash on it, holding it back for now. The palate is well balanced with grippy red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and a touch of sage. It gently builds towards quite a dense finish that is reminiscent of a Malconsorts. Very fine indeed.

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* Reduction is present here as well but it's not so strong as to completely mask the spice and gentle wood nuances. In contrast to the funk there is good freshness and vibrancy to the strikingly well-detailed and much more intensely mineral-driven flavors that culminate in a refined, pure and ever-so-slightly austere finale. This is a classic example of Beaux Monts that should amply reward 10 to 12 years of cellaring." (04/2016)

90-92 points Vinous: "Medium red. Pungent aromas of raspberry, red licorice and crushed stone are less fruity and more soil-driven than those of the Suchots; also cooler today and revealing less on the nose. Penetrating and intense but quite backward, with the raspberry and spice flavors joined by saline minerality on the slightly medicinal back end. Excellent density of material here but this is very young. (ST)" (01/2016)
