2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "The quality of the fruit and tannins are very pretty here. It’s full-bodied, with round velvety texture and a delicious finish. Very impressive. Drink or hold." (07/2014) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure. (RV)" (04/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Rich dark plum fruit but also meaty and savoury - a wine with attitude. Smooth and pretty dense, just about fresh. Drink 2014-2023. (JH)" (10/2011) ...Read More »

2010 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (750ml - ships as 1.5L) Back In Stock!
2010 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (750ml - ships as 1.5L)

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Champagnes we carry at any price. Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the grand cru of Oger called 'Chenys' and one in Mesnil called 'Derriere Maison,' this is among the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer. The wine shows the richness of the 2010 harvest perfectly with great ripeness but balanced by the scintillating acidity of the pure belemnita chalk. Add in the richness and complexity from old massal-selected, grand cru, mid-slope sites and you have a must-buy for any Champagne ...Read More »

2012 Michel Arnould "Memoire de Vignes" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2012 Michel Arnould "Memoire de Vignes" Brut Champagne

It is hard to beat the Grand Cru of Verzenay for pure class when it comes to Pinot Noir Champagne. The northernmost of all the Grand Crus, the village of Verzenay faces the wrong way, nearly due north, and yet produces nutty, deep yet delicate wines prized by every negociant and Champagne fan alike. We have been lucky enough to work with Patrick Arnould of Champagne Michel Arnould for 18 years now, and he has consistently delivered for our customers, with one of the best values in top-flight grower Champagne: estate grown from Verzenay Grand Cru.

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries.

2009 Egrot (formerly Elisabeth Goutorbe) Brut Grand Cru Champagne

This Champagne used to be called Elisabeth Goutorbe. Elisabeth changed the name over to her married name Egrot when she and her husband moved out of her parents facility in Ay, and into their own, where they run their tiny production Champagne house almost entirely by themselves. Because of our long relationship as their US importer, we get a good allocation of their wines—even though they only make between 5,000 and 10,000 bottles per year!

Elisabeth Goutorbe and her husband Jean-Marie Egrot run their tiny production Champagne house almost entirely by themselves. They get very little help from their cat Maurice, but can rely on Elisabeth’s father, René Goutorbe of Champagne Henri Goutorbe for a little bit of help. Of the 15 acres they own in Ay, Louvois, Tauxieres and Mutigny, they only keep the fruit from their 2.5 best—mostly in Ay, but also a touch of Louvois Chardonnay for balance.

The wine is more orange than pink, perhaps a darker shade of amber, and does not have any character of a rosé. Instead, it's leesy and a bit earthy, and the palate is very tasty, with yeasty flavors and a saline, almost marine sensation in the finish.

2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Decanter: "As it opens in the glass, this is absolutely gorgeous. You can see why this was the period where people stopped and said, 'hang on, what's going on at Haut Bailly?' It's silky and a touch subdued, clearly a serious wine, with seductive, fleshy cassis, bilberry, hedgerow and bramble fruits alongside notes of leather, pencil lead and crushed stones, perfectly balanced by tantalisingly reticent tannins and acidity. It's got to be one of the greatest Haut-Baillys on record, with its wonderful expression and great persistency. (JA)" (02/ ...Read More »

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. Wi ...Read More »

2009 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2009 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

96 points James Suckling: "Very fresh and vivid 2009 with berries, dark spice and hints of walnuts. Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don’t feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years. Try in 2020." (08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The current vintage of one of the flagship wines from La Rioja Alta is the 2009 Viña Ardanza Reserva, the second year it has contained 20% Garnacha grapes from their estate vineyards in La Pedriza in the village of Tudelilla in Rioja Baja. The Temp ...Read More »

1997 Turley "Dogtown" Lodi Zinfandel

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Zinfandel Dogtown (15.3% alcohol) is from a 65-year old vineyard situated on the border of Amador. Its dark ruby/purple/garnet color is followed by copious quantities of briery, berry fruit intermixed with loamy soil, underbrush, and spicy notes. Full-bodied and chewy, with excellent ripeness, this [is a] tasty, fleshy, full-throttle Zinfandel. As I have stated many times in the past, Turley Cellars' offerings have become the reference point for Zinfandel, as they are the most complex, concentrated, h ...Read More »

2005 Angélus, St-Emilion

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truly great stuff, this wine performed at a three-digit level both in the horizontal tasting of 2005s in Baltimore, as well as in Montreal at this mini-vertical. This sensational, opaque, bluish/purple wine offers up notes of vanillin, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, plus a touch of licorice. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. It is full-bodied, multidimensional and layered. The tannins are beautifully integrated but still present, and the wood ...Read More »

2014 Site Wines "Stolpman Vineyard" Roussanne Santa Barbara County

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the best Roussannes I was able to taste from California, Weintraub’s 2014 Roussanne Stolpman Vineyards is a fresh, lively, yet also rich and full-bodied white that has rocking notes of buttered citrus, flower oil, brioche and honeysuckle. Aged eight months in neutral oak, it’s a head-turner readers should snatch up. It should drink nicely for at least 2-4 years. I continue to be blown away by these wines from winemaker Jeremy Weintraub, who's also the winemaker for Adelaida in Paso Robles. Focusing on Rho ...Read More »

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne

Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth-generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750, and their cellars were built in 1822. The delectable Dilection is based on the incredible 2009 vintage with 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. Only French oak is used and the vineyard where the grapes are sourced was planted in 1902. It is rich, but classically dry with dark cherry and strawberry fruit on the finish, which lingers.
