Staff Image

1985 Maison Leroy Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru - 4 available ($999.99)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Leroy Ruchottes-Chambertin is a classic example of a grand cru from the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. The color is still very dark ruby, and the bouquet has just begun to release secondary aromas of grilled meats, leather, and baked red and black fruits. The high tannin levels may cause some to think the wine is rustic and rough-edged, but there is sensational concentration of fruit, a deep mid-palate, and a spectacular, long, opulent, tannic finish. (RP)" (12/1992)

Staff Image

1989 Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (bin soiled label) - 1 available ($1,499.99)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The two prior bottles that I had had of the '89 Clos de la Roche didn't really impress me, at least not by the illustrious standards it routinely achieves but this bottle was a stunner, displaying the first hints of sous bois and floral/vegetal hint that added nuance and continues onto the sweet, delicious, sappy and mouth coating flavors that are absolutely lovely and impressively long. This is a relatively understated wine that is still cruising though there is no additional upside to be had. Drink now and over the next decade." (11/2006)

Staff Image

2001 Vincent Girardin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru "Vieilles Vignes" - 2 available ($109.99)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Medium red-ruby. Scented aromas of black cherry, licorice and oak. Moderately dense but juicy and bright, with lovely clarity of flavor. Tightly wound and violety. Finishes with rather elegant tannins for Clos Vougeot and excellent length." (03/2004)

Staff Image

2003 Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St. Georges" (1.5L) - 2 available ($269.99)

2003 Frédéric Esmonin Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru - 0 available ($129.99)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Generously oaked with noticeable toast notes combine with ripe, spicy and nicely expressive red raspberry and cherry pinot aromas that lead to slighter finer, rounder and sweeter flavors than those of the bigger and more rustic Clos de Vougeot. The finish is long, concentrated and sappy and while this is not a particularly elegant wine, the underlying raw material is impressive. Drink 2010+." (01/2005)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, mocha, smoked meat and minerals. Sweet and creamy in the mouth but distinctly cooler than the Chambertin, with bright notes of menthol and minerals. An enticing floral note emerged as the wine opened in the glass. Finishes long, bright and minerally. But less complex than the Chambertin. 90(+?) points" (04/2006)

Staff Image

2003 Louis Jadot (Domaine des Héritières) Corton Grand Cru "Pougets" - 4 available ($89.99)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is slightly more elegant and fresher still with really pretty earthy and ripe red pinot fruit that also merge seamlessly into sweet, mineral-driven and precise moderately full flavors that are beautifully textured and well detailed on the strikingly persistent, ever so slightly dry finish. This is unquestionably a stylish wine by the standards of the vintage and this will require at least a decade to come into its own. (Drink starting 2013)" (04/2005)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated medium red. Distinct suggestions of surmaturite to the aromas of plum, currant, loam and chocolate. Sweet, dense and lush, with deeply pitched flavors of minerals and chocolate. Wonderfully concentrated and deep wine, finishing long and sappy, with big, dusty, sweet tannins. With extended time in the recorked bottle, the wine's extravagant ripeness became less apparent, and pungent notes of strawberry, cherry, minerals, flowers and earth emerged. A great vintage for this bottling and likely to be long-lived." (04/2006)

2003 Nicolas Potel Clos St. Denis Grand Cru - 1 available ($89.99)

Staff Image

2004 Domaine Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru - 7 available ($104.99)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A real blockbuster, with dark tannins and a firm, tough structure. Only right at the end does tasty, ripe fruit show up, but even this is heavy and brooding. If you want power in a Pinot, look no further." (03/2007)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Good full medium red. Perfumed, high-pitched aromas of red cherry, licorice and rose petal. Not especially fleshy but sweet, precise and fine-grained, with terrific energy to the complex flavors of red cherry, spices, minerals and flowers. This boasts excellent detail and grip. The very fine tannins are buried under cherry and mineral flavor. Very juicy and long. A distinctly noble, perfumed version of Clos Vougeot." (04/2007)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows fine intensity, with a kirschlike flavor, a velvety texture and dense tannins. Spices from new oak add dimension, and a sweet fruit note persists on the finish. A more burly style, but satisfying. Best from 2009 through 2018." (05/2007)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there is an aromatic profile that runs to deep plum and dark raspberry notes plus nuances of iron, leather and warm earth that continue onto the classically structured flavors that are austere, punchy and impressively intense yet the complexity is such that this is by no means one-dimensional. This is relatively backward and tight in comparison to most of the range here and will require patience to round out the presently edgy and mildly dry finish." (04/2007)

Staff Image

2004 Domaine Louis Jadot Echézeaux Grand Cru - 2 available ($119.99)

2004 Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" - 1 available ($59.99)

91 points and "Outstanding!" from Allen Meadows: "This is completely different with more aromatic complexity but without the sheer elegance and refinement of the Blagny that introduces moderately concentrated, intense and rich flavors that are more accessible yet retain the superb intensity plus more finishing depth as well. This is a terrific effort and recommended." (Burghound.com, Jul 01, 2006)

Staff Image

2004 Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" - 5 available ($49.99)

2005 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chaumees" - 1 available ($69.99)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "...Ripe and sweet, with a bit more freshness and definition to its fruit salad and honey flavors than the Saint-Aubin is showing today. Finishes with good length and flavor intensity." (09/2007)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the wood is more evident still with toast and vanilla notes that serve as a none-too-subtle backdrop for the very ripe peach and white flower aromas preceding round, rich and punchy flavors that possess excellent dry extract and this finishes with verve on the mouth coating, clean and dry backend. This is carrying more wood than I personally prefer but it's not enough to unbalance the wine." (07/2007)

2005 Domaine Danjean-Berthoux Givry 1er Cru "Clos du Cras Long" - 2 available ($34.99)

Staff Image

2005 Domaine Darviot-Perrin Beaune 1er Cru "Les Belissands" - 6 available ($59.99)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Terrific purity and intensity as the red currant, cherry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors play out on the senses. It's elegant and firm, beautifully balanced. Lingers with a saturated fruit finish. Drink now through 2018." (01/2008)

87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A complex nose of dark berry fruit and violet aromas merges into rich, sweet and enveloping flavors that deliver a mouth coating and punchy finish. The old vine intensity is plain to see and while this isn't particularly elegant, there is good character and much better depth." (04/2007)

2005 Domaine Jean-Marc Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "La Domnode" !.5L - 0 available ($89.99)

Staff Image

2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru ($199.99)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Wonderfully complex, vibrant aromas of red fruits, game and minerals. Offers great energy and sap in the mid-palate, with powerful minerality giving precision to the flavors. Wonderfully classy, soil-driven wine with the depth and structure to evolve in bottle for decades. Extremely long and tactile on the aftertaste." (03/2008)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Like the Griotte, the highly complex and distinguished nose is almost exclusively from the red berry side of the aromatic spectrum with round and rich but noticeably wood-influenced flavors where the oak is more of a textural aspect than a taste factor because it rounds off the finish. The material is sufficiently gifted to eventually deal with the wood but probably at the cost of precision and detail. Perhaps this will surprise to the upside as the old vine extract is certainly present in spades." (04/2007)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Jadots 2005 Chapelle-Chambertin smells brightly of ripe cherry, red licorice and smoked meat. Bitter-sweet cherry and smoky pungency on the palate are augmented by savory, meaty, salty, and bitter cherry pit. This positively blazes a path in its finish, with almost glaring brightness, mouth-watering salinity and invigorating hints of bitterness. There is nothing cuddly about the texture of this obviously age worthy beauty, however, its fine tannins are thoroughly covered by fruit and in no way weigh-down its dynamic personality. (DS)" (06/2007)

Staff Image

2005 Nicolas Potel Clos Vougeot Grand Cru ($149.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Deep ruby. A strongly reduced nose gives up little but the well-muscled flavors are big, robust and very powerful and possess the classic young Clos de Vougeot youthful austerity. This is very primary and awkward yet the quality of the raw material is clear and this should reward 10 to 15 years of cellar time." (01/2007)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and pungent spices. Offers a penetrating, sappy kirsch flavor on the palate, in a rather dense, powerful style. This is powerful without coming across as heavy. Finishes very long and spicy, with terrific freshness. (ST)" (03/2007)

2005 Nicolas Potel Pommard 1er Cru "Les Fremiers" - 4 available ($89.99)

Staff Image

2006 Domaine de Perdrix Echezeaux Grand Cru - 2 available ($109.99)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Macerated cherry and black currant aromas and flavors are edged in mineral and vanilla, while the silky texture holds off firm tannins until the finish. Fine length. Needs time to come together. Best from 2011 through 2020. 100 cases imported." (05/09) As the vines have aged, and the viticulture improved, these wines have been getting better and better the last few years. This is deep, dark Echezeaux, with earth and spice, and a long finsh. The structure is much more supple than the 2005 was, with delicious fruit. I was most impressed! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)

Staff Image

2006 Domaine Jacques Prieur Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru ($149.99)

93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " The Prieur 2006 Corton Bressandes while picked first hit the highest level of natural alcohol at this address for the vintage, nearly 13.5%. Blackberry, lingonberry, mint, iodine, black tea, and hints of Demararra brown sugar combine for a winsome nose. Superb concentration of bitter-sweet fruits, herbs, pepper, and mineral shadings inform an expansive vividly juicy and primary-fruited, yet also palpably dense and firm palate. The staining and invigorating intensity of finish here by no means precluded lift and sheer refreshment. Plan on giving it a few years before revisiting this beauty; then on following it at least through the teens of this century. (DS)" (12/2009)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full medium red. Ripe but closed nose hints at a medicinal austerity. Minerally and tight in the mouth, dominated by its tannic structure. Perhaps best today on the finish, which features very firm but ripe tannins and a burst of cherry. Enologist Gublin says the tannins of the '07s will gain in sweetness during the final months of elevage, but today I prefer this 2006. 91(+?) points." (03/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Sweet cherry, red currant and mineral flavors take on some spicy oak nuances as this red builds on the palate to a long finish. The tannins are present, but not overbearing. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2024. (Web-2009)"

Staff Image

2006 Domaine Pierre Damoy Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru ($99.99)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and bright, with kirsch, leather and spice aromas and flavors. On the beefy side, with dense tannins for support. Comes back into balance on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2023." (03/2009)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A relatively reserved and attractively spiced crushed red, black berry and cassis fruit nose complements supple, detailed and impressively concentrated flavors that offer good purity of expression and a dusty but not dry finish. This is rich to the point of being massive and the length is dramatic and the only nit is that the complexity is on the limited side at present though there is so much material that it's quite possible that this will come in time." (01/2009)

Staff Image

2006 Nicolas Potel Clos de la Roche Grand Cru - 8 available ($149.99)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A completely different nose this is deeply and more animale with red berry fruit that is also trimmed in a bit of wood spice that dissolves into supple, fresh and attractively textured flavors that are really quite fine for a young Clos de la Roche if perhaps not as complex as one might hope for."

Staff Image

2007 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru - 1 available ($1,199.99)

95 points Wine Spectator: "This muscular red shows macerated cherry and plum flavors, with leather, tobacco and a wild, feral character. Smooth and concentrated, with a long finish of sweet fruit and mineral. A chewy version. Best from 2014 through 2030. *Collectibles*" (04/2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red-ruby. More reserved on the nose than the Beze, with terrific sappy verve to its aromas of dark fruits, violet, crushed stone, iron and camphor. Juicy, tightly wound and very intense on first pour, but opened spectacularly in the glass to show outstanding creamy depth without any loss of energy. Today the wine's saline earth tones and minerality have the upper hand over its fruit. There's less easy sweetness here than the Clos de Beze is displaying, but the slow ripening of the vintage is apparent, and the finishing flavors go on and on. It would be a rare (and expensive) treat to try these two wines side by side in 2020 or so. (ST)" (03/2010)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "By contrast to the Clos St. Jacques and the Bèze, the Cham has already eaten its wood which allows free rein for the spicy, pure, elegant and restrained earthy red pinot fruit with animale hints and ample mineral notes to dissolve seamlessly into dusty, textured, precise and palate staining big-bodied flavors that are exceptionally tight on the linear but hugely long finish. At present, the Bèze appears to have slightly better underlying material but we'll see in time as both are sensational plus the Cham has a long demonstrated ability to add weight in bottle." (01/2010)

Staff Image

2007 Domaine Armand Rousseau Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru - 1 available ($299.99)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Offers plenty of wild berry aromas and flavors, with accents of earth, licorice and spice. Long and expansive, this displays a sappy core and terrific presence on the palate from start to finish." (04/2010)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A somewhat taciturn and narrow nose features a limited mix of wild red berries, warm earth and a touch of underbrush that continues onto the round, delicious, fresh and supple flavors that possess a certain delicate quality to them as well as a subtle touch of minerality on the persistent finish. This is a bit rounder than the Cazetiers with finer tannins as well. In sum, this is pretty rather than profound. Drink: 2014+" (01/2009)

Staff Image

2007 Domaine Armand Rousseau Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru - 1 available ($299.99)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Shy in aroma, yet expressive on the palate, revealing cherry, licorice, chocolate and mineral notes. This possesses energy and a vibrant structure, with a natural sweetness offsetting its fine-grained tannins. Subtle and sophisticated, with a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2028. (BS)" (04/2010)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Domaine. A broody nose at first but wakes up with a few swirls of the glass: dried leaves, wild hedgerow, a hint of tobacco, wild berried fruits and then rosehip tea. The palate has very fine tannins, feminine, focused with good acidity and a very elegant finish. This Mazis is a little fruitier than usual. Very pure and natural, this is an excellent wine for the vintage. Drink now-2025 Tasted November 2008. (NM-Wine Journal)" (03/2009)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose blends upper and lower register aromas that include cranberry, raspberry, cassis, rose petal and smoked jerky that merges into very pure and textured flavors that also have a certain delicate quality to them, yet the finish is robust, sauvage and displays very good phenolic maturity to the structural elements. This should age well as it's balanced yet will be approachable young." (01/2009)

89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright, full red. Musky small red berries, maraschino cherry and smoke on the rather wild nose. Then sweet and sappy in the mouth, with attractive floral lift to the raspberry, mineral and leather flavors. The long, juicy finish features brisk notes of red fruits, flowers and spices." (03/2009)

2007 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Les Pruliers" - 0 available ($74.99)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot, Outstandin* This is the first wine to display any oak influence at all and even here it is almost invisible, setting off fresh but very restrained, even brooding dark berry fruit aromas that are in keeping with the equally serious, intense, concentrated, full-bodied flavors that possess ample dry extract that confers a velvety mouth feel on what is actually a quite firmly structured, complex and admirably long finish. I quite like this and it's at another level." (01/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Effusive, with cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice and mineral flavors, all wrapped in an elegant profile. Firm tannins enter on the finish, needing time to integrate. Already beginning to develop some secondary notes." (09/2010)

89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Dark cherry, menthol and minerals on the nose. More muscular and darker on the palate, with good verve and stuffing to the dark berry and violet flavors. A bit youthfully austere on the back end, but this shows more force than the Clos des Porrets Saint-Georges." (03/2009)

90 points Wine & Spirits: "2007 Nuits-St-Georges Premier Cru Les Pruliers Focused on rose scents and dark, soy-like flavors of grilled porcini and hen of the woods mushrooms, this is gamey rather than fruity, a tight young wine with tension in its structure. Cellar it for five or six years and the hidden fruit should come to the fore." (10/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers has a very pure strawberry jam-scented bouquet accompanied by over-ripe oranges and wild mushroom. The palate is fresh and rounded on the entry. It seems to be maturing quite quickly with plenty of mushroom and forest floor scents taking over and dominating the -furry- mid-palate. (NM)" (12/2013)

2007 Domaine Yves Boyer-Martenot Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" - 0 available ($69.99)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow. Sweeter aromas of yellow peach, butter, vanilla, hazelnut and menthol; very Meursault. Then juicy and firmly built, with lemony acidity and a mineral component contributing firmness and vivacity. This really resounds on the mineral-driven back end. Charmes in a Perrieres style, in need of four years of aging. (ST)" (10/2009)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The combination of creaminess and refreshment of which its vintage is capable are no doubt reinforced in Boyers 2007 Meursault Charmes by the effect of its marrying both very high elevation, stony and low, chalk-rich sections of this cru. Also in typical vintage fashion, it is juicy and generously satisfying through and through, with toasted nuts, spice, and vanilla accenting fresh citrus in a refreshing and persistent if not terribly complex finish. I would plan to enjoy this over the next 4-5 years. (DS)" (12/2009)

2008 Domaine Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Serpentieres" ($49.99)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very strong earth influence characterizes the deeply pitched aromas of plum, blueberry and underbrush and it continues onto the light mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a velvety mouth feel plus a balanced, persistent and relatively forward finish relative to the structure this wine typically possesses." (04/2010)

90-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pavelots 2008 Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentieres features aromas of cherry and plum with intimations of their pits, as well as a maritime combination of saline and alkaline scents. It fills the mouth with tart dark cherry, purple plum and the fruit pit piquancy and marine minerality that were adumbrated in the nose, all making for lovely counterpoint on a palate of satiny texture. This is almost compulsively saliva- and next sip-inducing. Hints of fennel take the lead in adding an attractive herbal dimension to the wines fascinating, lingering finish. I expect it to excel for at least a dozen years. (DS)" (06/2010)

2009 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault "En la Barre" - 1 available ($69.99)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding Top Value* A slightly riper but still admirably fresh nose of hazelnuts, spiced pear and white peach introduces rich, round and generous yet beautifully detailed medium-bodied flavors that exhibit a fine minerality on the mouth coating, intense and impressively long finish. This is a marvelous villages and worth your attention." (02/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Meursault En la Barre emerges from the glass with layers of expressive fruit. This is a striking, sensual wine endowed with lovely depth. An attractive element of crushed rocks and minerals adds length and energy. 91+ (AG)" (09/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, bright yellow. Pear, peach, truffle and earth on the nose, complemented by an exotic whiff of mango. Broad and rich, making a sweeter impression than the Tillets. More fruity than minerally, and a bit less biting on the back end than the Tillets. But there's lovely sweet fruit and very good material here. I'd hold this for a couple years before pulling the cork. (ST)" (09/2011)

2009 Domaine Blain Gagnard Batard Montrachet Grand Cru ($139.99)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "As is typically the case, this is not quite as ripe as the Criots and is moderately more elegant too with a white peach, floral and lemon suffused nose. There is excellent richness but also fine detail to the big, powerful and broad-shouldered flavors that possess terrific intensity on the explosive and hugely long finish. Despite the impressive size and weight however, this essentially remains a Bâtard of refinement. (AM)" (02/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator: "The fruit character is more candied in this white, along with butterscotch and pastry notes. Promises more up front than it delivers on the finish, at least for now. Best from 2013 through 2020. 60 cases imported. (BS)" (08/2012)

2009 Domaine Blain-Gagnard Criots Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru - 2 available ($139.99)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A soft touch of wood frames ripe yellow fruit aromas that include peach, apricot and mango as well as citrus nuances among which lemon and grapefruit are to be found. There is impressive complexity to the rich, full-bodied and powerful large-scaled flavors that brim with dry extract on the citrusy and bone dry finish. An impressive showing that should age beautifully well." (06/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator: "An exotic style, boasting flavors of smoke, bacon fat, apple, peach and baking spices. Intense, with focus, a chalklike texture and savory length, even a hint of oyster shell. Best from 2013 through 2023." (08/2012)

2009 Domaine Henri Boillot Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" - 1 available ($109.99)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Citrus peel, flowers and clove on the nuanced nose. Then chewy and thick but with terrific energy and definition to the chewy, lightly saline flavors. Boasts lovely inner-mouth floral and citrus character. Finishes very long and vibrant. This is a domain wine." (09/2010)

93 points Vinous: "The 2009 Meursault Genevrieres flows with a rich tapestry of aromas and flavors. There is considerable volume and depth in the ripe yellow stone fruit. Constantly changing in the glass, the Genevrieres impresses for its complexity, underlying minerality and fabulous overall balance. I especially like the way the wine is constantly changing in the glass, always a sign of greatness. (AG)" (08/2011)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* As with the Pucelles, the trace reduction and sulfur notes aren't enough to completely mask the naturally spicy and ever-so-subtly exotic fruit aromas. The detailed, vibrant and stony medium weight flavors possess excellent verve and are shaped by the moderately firm acid spine on the balanced, long and notably dry finish. There is ample richness and dry extract that confers a generous mouth feel to the mid-palate but overall, this is a classy wine of refinement and precision. Drink: 2015+" (02/2011)

Full of ripe apple, orange blossom and vanilla creamsicle aromas. Beautiful weight and vibrant acidity round out this wine. It is very good now, but two or three years down and it will be truly special.

Staff Image

2009 Domaine Jacques Prieur Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru - 6 available ($154.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Sweet Spot* A notably ripe yet somehow cool and elegant nose offers up black berry, stone, warm earth and violet aromas that are in keeping with the equally ripe, dense and serious flavors that evidence an overt muscularity on the textured and palate staining yet refined finish. 2009 seems to have been a banner year in Corton and this terrific effort won't contradict that pattern." (05/2011)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(this and the rest of the Prieur grand crus were aged in 100% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Warm, complex, soil-inflected aromas and flavors of redcurrant, dried tobacco, leather and spices, with a hint of dark fruits emerging with air. Juicy, firm and intense, displaying lovely finesse and energy; much less obviously 2009 in style than most of the preceding wines. This very youthful, delineated, perfumed wine finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length. Should age very well. 92(+?) points" (04/2012)

2009 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Bousselots" ($84.99)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Subtle but not invisible wood frames relatively high-toned red berry fruit, especially red currant, that introduces delicious, round and unusually fine middle weight flavors thanks to the refined tannins and impressively long finish. The '09 is the best example of this wine that I have ever tasted from cask chez Chevillon." (01/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les Bousselots emerges from the glass with beautifully delineated red fruit, anise, licorice and dried flowers. It is a radiant, expressive wine graced with notable delineation and tons of class. The Bousselots comes across as relatively approachable. Layers of exotic fruit on the finish capture the essence of the year. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (04/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Alluring for its luscious strawberry and raspberry notes, this red is juicy and vibrant. Tightens up on the finish, where the tannins intertwine with sweet fruit and spice flavors. Best from 2014 through 2022. (BS)" (12/2011)

This doesn't have quite the same level of complexity as the Talmettes but it may in time as there is ample underlying material and like many of the Bize '09s, this is unapologetically built to age."

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, bright yellow. Precise aromas of stone fruits, flowers, minerals and wet stone. Dense and glyceral but almost painfully backward today, with terrific floral cut lifting and intensifying the wine's mid-palate fruits and minerals. The juicy, rising finish stimulates the salivary glands. This wine should evolve positively in bottle for a long time. 94(+?) points." (09/2012)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "(from a .52 ha parcel situated in the middle of the vineyard) Discreet oak notes don't compromise the expressiveness of the white peach and overtly exotic fruit aromas that introduce concentrated, naturally sweet and textured medium plus weight flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel and fine intensity. This is certainly very pretty if not exactly typical. Still this is a quality effort though not really my style. Drink: 2017+" (01/2012)

K&L Notes: Burghound writes: "(from a 52 Ha parcel) As noted in Issue 6, Etienne de Montille of Domaine de Montille...is now the régisseur (general manager) of this old Domaine, replacing Claude Schneider. de Montille has already made a number of important changes, including moving the viticulture to biodynamic farming principles..."

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin is weightless, elegant and totally refined. It reveals striking purity in its sweet red berries, mint, spices and flowers, with fabulous intensity and balance at the villages level. This is an impressive wine from Eric Rousseau and his team. I loved it. (AG)" (02/2012)

Staff Image

2010 Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru - 2 available ($199.99)

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A fresh but quite restrained and noticeably cool nose of herb and stone-infused wild red berry fruit aromas precedes impressively intense, powerful and agreeably rich medium-bodied flavors that ooze a fine minerality on the wonderfully detailed flavors that explode on the mouth coating and overtly stony finish. Like the Suchots, this is one impressive effort with outstanding upside potential though note that at least 15 years of cellar time will be required." (01/2012)

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full, bright medium red. Aromas of small wild dark berries, licorice, coffee and sweet oak perked up by pepper and herbs. Fat and sweet, but without quite the definition of the Reignots, Clos Vougeot or Echezeaux. With its creamy, candied qualities and herbal edge, this suggests a wider range of fruit ripeness than most of the other 2010s here. A bit clenched on the back. (ST)" (01/2012)

2010 Domaine Bruno Colin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Truffiere" ($109.99)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A highly expressive, pure and airy nose features notes of mineral reduction, pear, green apple and acacia blossom. There is a really lovely vibrancy to the racy, intense and equally mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent volume but also excellent cut on the mouth coating, dry, linear and explosive finish. In a word, terrific. *Sweet spot. Outstanding*" (06/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Up-front floral and lime notes allow this white to gather steam, with the peach and apple flavors following through and the creamy texture complimenting the bright acidity. Excellent length. Drink now through 2022. (BS)" (02/2013)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Silky and polished throughout, the 2010 Puligny-Montrachet La Truffiere stands out for its silkiness, inner perfume and persistence. Dried pears and white flowers are some of the notes that linger on the finish. This is the most understated of Bruno Colins 2010s. Anticipated maturity: 2013+. (AG)" (08/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Complex aromas of grapefruit pith, lemon, oatmeal, menthol and musky stone. Rich and densely packed, with razor-sharp definition to its citrus and crushed stone flavors. Almost painful on the back end but very long and pure--and much less dominated by its oak component than it appeared to be from barrel last spring. This, too, calls for patience. (ST) 92+" (09/2012)

2010 Domaine Faiveley Corton Grand Cru "Clos des Corton Faiveley" - 2 available ($199.99)

94-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A brooding, deep and introverted nose grudgingly gives up notes of cassis, earth, wood and a hint of animale. The intense, brawny and imposingly structured flavors possess superb volume and almost breathtaking power on the explosive and mouth coating finish that is of monumental proportions. This is a classic Corton yet consistent with the style of the 2010 vintage, this is not unduly rustic, indeed the tannins, while firm, are actually relatively refined. A knock out by any standard but at the same time, a wine for the genuinely patient. *Don't Miss!*" (01/2012)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Pure floral, cherry and spice aromas and flavors highlight this aromatic, lush and silky red. Finishes on the taut side, but with intensity and a vibrant structure. Shows fine length, with soft tannins and a savory mineral aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2029. *Collectibles* (BS)" (02/2013)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Its rare in Burgundy that a producer can add his name to a vineyard, but Faiveleys tradition goes back at least a century. This is huge and dense; the notes of spice, sweet black plum and acidity are all comfortably balanced with the powerful tannic structure. This needs at least seven years of aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (11/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Pungent aromas of cherry, truffle and smoky minerality. Began juicy, quite dry and uncompromising if subtle and sappy, then opened slowly to reveal flavors of redcurrant and spices complicated by saline soil tones. This extremely unevolved wine is currently taut and tangy, not fleshy, and has buns of steel. A very adult wine with a fine dusting of tannins, an utterly seamless texture, and lovely lingering perfume. Totally different at this stage of its life than the more velvety 2009 but this holds out considerable promise and will probably merit an even higher score a decade from now. (ST) 93+" (03/2013)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Moderate wood still allows the ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis and a hint of underbrush to show through. There is a lovely vibrancy to the cool and delicious flavors that possess solid depth and length in the context of the appellation. This should drink well early on if desired yet reward mid-term cellaring as well." (01/2013)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A classic Perrières nose of mineral reduction, floral, white peach and pear aromas gives way to cool and restrained flavors that possess really beautiful detail before concluding in a focused, intense and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is rather compact at present and will require a few years of cellar time before it's completely ready to go." (06/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Liqueur-like ripeness to the aromas of mirabelle and stone fruits. Lush and sweet in the mouth, but with good energy to the creamy pineapple, pear and spice flavors. More harmonious today than the Genevrieres. This smooth, glyceral fruit bomb boasts a long, rising finish. Both this wine and the Charmes have volatile acidity levels between 0.5 and 0.6, says Boyer, which is higher than usual at this address. I'd enjoy this wine over the next six to eight years. (ST)" (09/2012)

2010 Vincent Girardin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" ($79.99)

There is a wonderful sense of underlying tension to the stony, intense and beautifully well-delineated flavors that possess excellent length on the impeccably well-balanced finish. The class of a fine Caillerets is on display here." (06/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw-yellow. Lemon, coconut and vanilla on the slightly exotic nose. Fat, rich and pliant on the front half, mouthfilling without coming across as heavy. Then ripe but a bit youthfully aggressive on the back, with strong lemony fruit carrying through to a long, bracing finish. This energetic wine is very young. 93+ (ST)" (09/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* A signature wine for Girardin, this is powerful and rich, with apricot, quince and green plum fruits that are layered within the taut texture. A toast note rounds out this complex, ageworthy wine. (RV)" (11/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A powerful, strapping white, boasting lemon, apple, mineral and spice flavors, all marshaled by bracing acidity. Lean and coiled, this delivers a lingering floral, citrus and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2026. (BS)" (07/2013)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret comes across as cool, inward and reticent. It is a gorgeous, complete wine loaded with both fruit and minerality. Accordingly, the Clos du Cailleret needs time to come together. The age of the vines and the high percentage of shot berries contribute to the richness and sheer weight of the fruit. This is a promising wine, but it needs time. The Clos du Cailleret is the last parcel harvested at the maison. 92+ (AG)" (08/2014)

Then much more soil-dominated on the palate, with savory, chewy flavors of liquid stone and salty minerality dominating the wine's underlying fruit. Tensile, tightly wound Perrieres, in need of five to seven years of patience. (ST) 94+" (09/2012)

93 points Decanter: "Oaky apple compote and apricot nose. Good attack, very concentrated, has precision and drive, and theres minerality beneath the ripe fruit, and fine acidity too. A classic style, not at all flashy, but poised and elegant, with a very long stony finish. (SB)" (03/2014)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Meursault Les Perrieres bristles on the palate with melted rocks, pears, jasmine and a hint of smoke. This is typical Perrieres in its cool, mineral notes and taut personality. There is a vibrancy and energy in the Perrieres that is striking. Another year or two in bottle should help the wine come together even more fully. The expressiveness and depth of the finish bodes well for the future. (AG)" (08/2012)

2011 Comte Armand Pommard 1er Cru "Clos des Epeneaux" (Monopole) ($99.99)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " * Outstanding * This is really quite expressive for a young Clos des Epeneaux with its relatively refined and pure nose of red currant, dried flowers, iron-inflected earth and soft spice scents. There is good power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and muscular medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the perfectly balanced and highly persistent finish that displays moderate austerity. This is really very impressive and will need at least 10 to 12 years to be at its best." (04/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Bright medium red. Shy aromas of redcurrant, plum and spicy underbrush are less pristine than those of the young 2012. Supple and energetic, with dark cherry, raspberry and soil tones accented by minerals and peppery herbs. Nicely perfumed and savory wine with a restrained sweetness and very good verve. The dusty tannins should support mid-term aging." (03/2014)

92 points Vinous: " A beautiful, mid-weight Burgundy, the 2011 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux flows across the palate with layered, silky fruit and expressive aromatics. The 2011 is a very pretty, accessible Clos des Epeneaux that offers considerable near and medium-term appeal. In 2011, winemaker Benjamin Leroux used just a dollop of whole clusters, around 10%. (AG)" (03/2014)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux offers a pleasant marine influence on the nose with touches of iodine and seaweed infusing the dark black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm but not austere tannins. There is good density here, the best balanced Pommard of the flight, the finish showing fine delineation, structure and typicity. This the most complete wine of the flight, although winemaker Benjamin Leroux crafted a superior wine in 2012. (NM)" (11/2014)

2011 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru "Les Taillepieds" - 1 available ($89.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is enough reduction present to mask the nuances of the nose though the floral character does sneak past the funk. There is a wonderfully silky texture to the intense mineral and soil-inflected medium-bodied flavors that display really lovely delineation on the moderately austere and very firmly structured finish that delivers outstanding depth and length. This should improve for years to come and this is really most impressive. *Sweet Spot - Outstanding*" (04/2013)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good fresh red. Dark cherry and underbrush flavors are accented by peppery spices from the vinification with stems. Supple on entry, then concentrated, dry and uncompromising, with the stem component currently suppressing the wine's underlying fruit and minerality. Firmly built and energetic, but a bit dry following the Champans. Showing more energy than it did from barrel a year ago but the dusty tannins will require patience. (ST) 90+" (04/2014)

2011 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Mouches" - 2 available ($99.99)

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium-deep red. Musky aromas of dark berries, licorice and minerals. Juicy, suave and fine-grained, with dark fruit flavors complicated by enticing subtle minerality and a whiff of game bird. Dry, classic wine with good density and and depth. Finishing flavors of dark berries, flowers and minerals give lovely lift to the primary back end. Really refreshing stony energy here." (01/2013)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A complex and relatively elegant nose offers up notes of red currant, raspberry, black cherry and a hint of anise. There is a supple and markedly silky texture to the mid-palate thanks to the notably fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a linear and moderately austere finish. While certainly very pretty, this doesn't seem to be at its usual level of excellence." (04/2013)

Jancis Robinson: "Bright crimson. Broad pretty fruit, very alluring and easy to love. Masses of fruit such a spread! Already lovely. Very fine tannins on the end. Just a little kick of dryness on the finish but lovely mouth-filling stuff." (11/2012)

Wine Spectator: "Hints of wood smoke, char and vanilla accent the cherry and licorice flavors in this ample red. Expressive and harmonious, with moderate length." (04/2014)

Staff Image

2011 Domaine Joseph Roty Marsannay "Les Ouzeloy" ($44.99)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Aromas of purple fruits, mint, violet and mocha; showing less torrefaction than the young 2012. Juicy, sharply delineated black fruit and violet flavors benefit from an excellent sugar/acid balance. Crunchy wine with lovely cut and penetration and a brisk, long finish. I'd give it two or three years in the cellar. This should make a terrific bottle of Marsannay." (03/2014)

2011 Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Combettes" ($109.99)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* A notably elegant nose of ripe and pure white and yellow orchard fruit, lemon zest, pain grillé and a hint of spice marries into rich, generous and relatively full-bodied flavors that possess ample dry extract and excellent mid-palate concentration. There is a firm but ripe acid spine that shapes and supports the palate staining and perfumed finish. While not destined to be one of the genuinely great examples of Sauzet Combettes, this is still a stunner of a 1er." (06/2013)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Combettes 2011 from Sauzet has a very composed bouquet with the minerality shining through, exuding great tension and allowing the aromatics that speak of a place. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. This is well structured with judiciously integrated oak, touches of spicy citrus fruit and great tension toward the finish that fans out beautifully. Excellent. (NM)" (11/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Sexy aromas of white nectarine and minerals complicated by oak notes of vanilla and toast. Dense, pure and precise, with a distinctly sappy, tactile quality to the savory flavors of white stone fruits and crushed rock. This really saturates the palate with flavor and builds on the aftertaste. Superb premier cru with the energy to support a leisurely evolution in bottle. (ST)" (09/2013)

93 points Vinous: "The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes is by far the most closed, unyielding of the wines in this range. Today, it is all about power. The expression of fruit is huge on the palate, but it is going to be a few years before all the elements come together in the glass. Readers who enjoy rich, powerful whites will find much to like here, once the wine settles down a bit. Patience is key. (AG)" (09/2013)

Jancis Robinson: "Substantial mouthfilling stuff with real zest. Quite pretty. Lots of fruit and well balanced." (01/2013)

2011 Henri Germain Meursault "Les Chevalieres" - 0 available ($69.99)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is notably more elegant with its cool and ultra-pure nose of lemon zest, acacia blossom and mineral reduction. There is a similar sense of cool restraint to the stony and beautifully well-delineated flavors that culminate in a citrusy, dry and lingering finish. This is a wine of finesse." (06/2013)

Maison Ilan is a new negociant producer based in Nuits-St-Georges who is dedicated to premier cru and grand cru bottlings in a traditional Burgundian style. The goal in the cellar is to express terroir as clearly as possible by use of open-top wooden tanks, native yeast fermentation and little-to-no use of pumps or new oak barrels.

2012 Domaine Faiveley Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens" - 1 available ($114.99)

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(50% of a normal crop due to the poor flowering; 50% new oak): Good bright red. Redcurrant, minerals and sweet oak on the reticent nose. Chewy and intense on the palate, with an impression of strong extract to the cherry liqueur and saline flavors. Nicely concentrated, long and aromatic, with suave tannins and no evidence of hail." (01/2014)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An elegant and pure nose speaks of essence of red berries along with hints of violet, plum and soft earth nuances. There is evident minerality to the detailed and highly energetic middle weight flavors that also display noticeable astringency on the otherwise moderately persistent finish. A wine to drink young." (01/2014)

Staff Image

2012 Domaine Jacques Prieur Beaune 1er Cru "Champs-Pimont" Rouge - 4 available ($54.99)

88-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Deep ruby color. A deft touch of wood surrounds the ripe and very fresh black raspberry, earth and discreet floral nuances. There is the same attractive freshness and sense of tension to the medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the muscular, even robust finish that is quite firmly structured. This is a big and extracted wine in the context of what is typical for Beaune and clearly built to age." (04/2014)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Less primary fruit and more dried flowers and tobacco leaf on the nose, along with a suggestion of menthol. Supple and thick in the mouth, with iron, spice and smoke notes from the red clay soil. Shows a strong earthy aspect but has energy as well. Finishes with serious breadth and dusty tannins. (ST)" (03/2015)

2012 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Couchereaux" - 1 available ($59.99)

91-93 points Vinous: "The 2012 Beaune Clos des Couchereaux is one of the most seamless and silky of the seven Beaune 1er Crus I tasted for this article. Creamy, generous and supple, the 2012 is endowed with gorgeous depth and richness. Here, too, the fruit is dark and very ripe, but at the same time, the Clos is a bit less opulent than the distinctly racy Cras. Firm tannins give the Beaune Clos des Couchereaux a sense of energy that supports the fruit and adds to the wine's considerable appeal." (01/2014)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Notes of menthol, dark cherry, earth and subtle anise hints serve as a complex introduction to the generously proportioned, concentrated and relatively powerful middle weight flavors. The supporting structure is not quite as imposing but it's still notably firm on the solidly persistent and complex finish. Lovely." (01/2014)

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Good bright, deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black cherry and flowers. Not as sweet or creamy as the Cras but plenty supple all the same, with ripe acidity giving the wine good inner-mouth lift. Finishes with broad, suave, fine-grained tannins and enticing stony minerality." (01/2014)

K&L Notes: Situated high on the Montagne de Beaune, this site has shallow topsoils and a fine minerality, and its Southern exposure gives iit power.

2012 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" (Elsewhere $60) - 0 available ($44.99)

92-94 points Vinous: "Building off the considerable success of their 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary 1er Cru, Jadot has decided to make the wine again in top years. One of the highlights in this range, the 2012 boasts stunning power, depth and harmony. The lifted aromatics recall the Ursules, but here the fruit possesses more volume and creaminess. An explosive, layered finish rounds things out in style. Some of the parcels in the blend are Avaux, Cent Vignes, Pertuisots, Vignes Franches, Perrières, Toussaints and Chouacheux. (AG)" (01/2014)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A subtle touch of wood sets off ripe and relatively elegant notes of earth, dark cherry and spice. The mid-palate is dense, serious and powerful with plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the moderately austere, backward and built-to-age finale. While this is presently backward it should be approachable after 6 to 8 years of bottle age though note that it should live for a very long time. For readers having a child or grandchild in 2012 this would be a good choice to buy in quantity at a price that wont break the bank. *Outstanding*" (04/2015)

Jadots 153rd Anniversary bottling is a very intriguing bottle of wine. On a primary level its a delicious, accessible, polished and expertly crafted bottle of Pinot Noir. If thats enough to convince you this is the bottle for you read no further! However, I think its much more than just that. What it really represents is a true homage to Jadots roots (both literally and metaphorically). This bottling is a celebration of Jadots home the village of Beaune. The wine includes fruit from the very first vineyard the Jadot family purchased in 1829 Clos Des Ursules. It also includes parcels of fruit from the other 18 Premier Cru sites that Jadot works with in this commune.The precisely parcellated, demarcated, hierarchical vineyard classification of Burgundy has become the dominant winemaking model around the globe. This philosophy, grounded in the Cistercians keen eye (and palate) for distinct terroirs, has formed the basis for codification of specific geographical origins thought the wine world. Beyond the legal codifications, the single vineyard or single block wine has become the most sought after concept in almost every market across the globe. Almost every winery you can think of starts their offering with a broader blend of fruit sources for their most commercial bottling, then regionally specific, then single vineyardthen the ultra premium releasethe single block. What Jadot have done with this release is flip the whole paradigm on its headinstea

Staff ImageGary Westby | K&L Staff Member | Review Date: February 25, 2016

There is no place in the world that values specificity of site like Burgundy, and it is rare to see a blend of 1er Cru sites like this. Jadot has created a cuvee that is greater than the some of its parts for their 153rd anniversary, and this is without a doubt the best value in fine red wine for your cellar that we have at K&L today. If you love finesse, delicacy and balance in your Pinot Noir, this wine will give you great pleasure right now. If you are willing to wait, this wine will doubtless gain power, breadth and texture over the next couple of decades and turn into a real "blood making" Beaune. I am putting buying a case for myself, I recommend that you do too.

Staff ImageScott Beckerley | K&L Staff Member | Review Date: February 25, 2016

I just tasted this lovely Burgundy, and what a value it is! It has a lovely nose of rose petals, dark red fruits and just a hint of earth. Very structured on the palate with nice, structured acidity, cherry fruit with a hint of cranberry and spice. Very accessible, but will also age very well. Dense and spicy. Affordable Burgundy is not an oxymoron any longer!

2012 Louis Jadot Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru - 3 available ($189.99)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Don't miss!* Generous if not dominant wood serve as a not-so-subtle backdrop to the intensely sauvage and spicy red currant, cassis, plum and pungently earth aromas. The attractively textured and mouth coating large-scaled flavors enjoy copious amounts of palate coating and tannin-buffering dry extract along with plenty of minerality that adds lift to the imposingly structured finish. This massive effort is very definitely old school and there will be no point in opening this before at least a decade of aging has occurred." (04/2014)

2012 Vincent Dancer Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Tete du Clos" ($99.99)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Tete du Clos comes from the highest part of the Morgeot vineyard, the vines planted in 1954. Here, there is a discernable Meursault character that percolates through with grilled walnut and smoke emerging from the glass. (Vincent puts this down to the soil, which bears similarities to that appellation). With time, there is a cheeky scent of aniseed that pops up unexpectedly. The palate is well-balanced with abundant ripe apricot and passion fruit lining the entry, well judged acidity and impressive harmony and focus toward the finish. This is just a delicious Chassagne-Montrachet with class to spare. Drink 2015-2028. (NM)" (02/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pure crushed stone on the nose, with a with an exotic topnote of orange oil. Boasts terrific fruit intensity but is it as refined as the 2013 edition? The concentrated finish leaves an impression of dusty extract. Dancer's is really a distinctive calcaire-driven, higher-altitude version of this sprawling premier cru. He told me that he avoids chaptalization because 'that would erase vintage differences,' which he prizes. (ST)" (09/2014)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again there is a subtle hint of petrol character to the elegant and airy aromas of white peach, pineapple and spiced pear aromas. There is excellent vibrancy to the delineated and precise medium weight flavors that also brim with palate coating dry extract before concluding in a wonderfully persistent and well-balanced finish. This should drink well after only a few years of bottle age but reward 5 to 7. *Outstanding*" (06/2014)

2013 Domaine Louis Jadot (Andre Gagey) Clos-St-Denis Grand Cru - 1 available Price: Hidden

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright red. Lovely energy and lift to the aromas and flavors of red fruits, brown spices, dried flowers and sexy oak. Broad and dry on the palate, offering superb density and lift and a saline complexity that adds another dimension. This ripely tannic Clos Saint-Denis strikes me as unusually powerful for the vintage and for the cru. But that's no complaint." (01/2015)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru has a slightly lighter color than the Clos de la Roche. The bouquet is certainly in the red fruit spectrum, with fresh strawberry, red currant and cranberry notes. There is an appealing sense of transparency here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, lighter than I expected but very focused and with fine tension. I was just anticipating more substance on the finish like the Clos de la Roche. Still, I appreciate this style of Clos Saint Denis that does not press down on the accelerator too hard.Like last year, I sectioned off two morning sessions to taste through the complete range of Louis Jadots Côte dOr wines. Thats over 100 wines and so I prefer to not rush, spend my time diligently tasting and comparing each one in the presence of winemaker Frédéric Barnier and then on the second morning accompanied by proprietor Pierre-Henry Gagey, fresh from a ten-day fasting in Germany and positively bounding with positivity. With such a plethora of vineyards under their wing, both owned and rented, both gentlemen have a birds-eye view of how Burgundy performed in the vintage. " (12/2014)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A much more subtle application of wood allows the pretty and beautifully layered nose of both red and dark pinot fruit, earth and lovely spice aromas to have center stage. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors are finer than those of the Clos de la Roche while delivering the same fine length though here there is a hint of asperity. In the same fashion there is quite a bit of gas present and because all the other elements seem ripe, my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt." (04/2015)

2013 Domaine Louis Jadot Grands Échézeaux Grand Cru - 1 available Price: Hidden

93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Brooding dark fruits on the bound-up nose. Concentrated but ungiving today, with blackberry and black cherry flavors wound tight by the wine's firm spine of acids and dusty tannins. This very backward Grands-Echézeaux could hardly be more different from the much sweeter Echézeaux, and it's difficult to believe that it will ever equal that wine in quality." (01/2015)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Ech though there is a bit more overall complexity. In the same vein there is a bit more size, weight, richness and muscle to the dusty and mouth coating flavors that also possess a firmer tannic spine that is well-buffered by the profusion of sap, all wrapped in a dense, powerful and impressively long finish. This is definitely going to need plenty of time in bottle to reach its full apogee." (04/2015)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru has more fruit intensity on the nose than its little brother, although not quite the same endearing delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good depth, a touch of dried blood infusing the red berry fruit with commendable precision on the long finish. Everything seems to be held back at the moment, so give it several years in bottle. (NM)" (12/2014)
