Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru ((93-95RP), 94BH, 94VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Charred meat, black currant, and wet stone characterize the bouquet of Jadot’s 2005 Clos Vougeot. Savory, salty, brightly-fruited and invigoratingly juicy on the palate, this displays more energy and acidity than I would have expected from the appellation. For all of the clarity and juiciness of this wine’s fruit, grilled meat and stony earthiness combined with the emergence of formidable tannins and subtle but persistent cyanic and iodine notes to turn its formidably long finish somewhat austere. But this is going to result in an exciting rendition of its terroir if left in the dark for at least 6-8 years. (DS)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Finca Torremilanos "Cyclo" Ribera del Duero (94RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cyclo is 100% Tempranillo sourced from two vineyards, one with 85-year-old vines and the other with 150-year-old vines. The grapes were fermented with native yeasts and the wine spent 18 months in new barriques. Purple/black in color, the wine has a superb perfume of wood smoke, toast, vanilla, floral notes, mineral, blackberry, and licorice. Sumptuous on the palate, the wine is large-scaled, powerful, ripe, and structured. Give it 5-7 years in the cellar for additional complexity to emerge. It will drink well through 2030. (JM)" (02/2008)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay ((90-91RP), (88-90BH)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Informed by several parcels below the premier cru slopes, the Lafarge 2005 Volnay displays ultra-bright, fresh red currant accented by cherry pit and chalk, with a fascinating counterpoint of oily texture and refreshing brightness. In all of these respects, the wine is quite consistent with the character of this year’s generic cuvees and Cote de Beaune Villages. But here we have brown spice, citrus zest and sweet floral complexities, and a bright, mineral-saturated, zesty spicy persistence that suggests premier cru quality. In its trumpet-like bright treble, this sounds atypically lilting notes and in a major key, when compared with the vintage norm. (DS)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 95WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I found the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz to be structured, concentrated and serious, with big tannin and a focused feel. Showing plenty of dark fruit, crushed rock, earth and iron, it stretches out nicely on the finish and will be a long-lived wine. (JD)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (96RP, 96WS, 95JD, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An awesome effort, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin comes from the cooler, northeast corner of the appellation and is 100% Grenache. Spring flowers, licorice, violets, crushed rock and layers of sweet Grenache fruit all flow to a full-bodied, clean, elegant 2005 that has everything in the right place. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2005 Pierre Usseglio Mon Aieul Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (96WS, 94JD, 94RP, 94VN). Wine Spectator: Shows the great embedded structure of the vintage, with a strong graphite undertow pushing the layers of blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit, while additional sweet spice, mocha and bittersweet cocoa notes fill in the background. Packed with fruit and terroir, with a gorgeous mouthfeel. (JM) (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia ((96-98JD), 98RP, 95ST, 95VN, 95WS, 94JH, 93JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Torbreck’s flagship is the 2005 Run Rig, a 97% Shiraz cuvee sourced from 120- to 160-year-old vines with 3% finished Viognier added before bottling. It spent 30 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it has a kinky, exotic bouquet of fresh road tar, smoke, lavender, black pepper, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, the wine is dense, packed, and unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2040 in the style of a Chapoutier Hermitage. If it develops as I think it will, it will be a candidate for perfection down the road. (JM)" (02/2009)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Delorme Brother’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois has been incredibly consistent for me, and is always an upper-90s scoring wine. A big, full-bodied, structured effort, its inky purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of ripe black fruits, toasted spice, graphite, chocolate and garrigue. Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and the rest 5% Vaccarèse, brought up 30% in barrels and 70% in stainless steel, it will have another 10-15 years of prime drinking. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Loring "Russell Family" Paso Robles Pinot Noir (92WS, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "The initial aromas of ripe wild berry, pomegranate and huckleberry are joined by oaky scents of hazelnut and nutmeg. Intense, focused, deep and persistent on the palate, ending with a nice baseline of tannins. (JL)" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pierre Usseglio "Réserve des Deux Frères" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98JD, 98RP, 97WS, 96ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lastly, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Réserve des Deux Frères is a more blockbuster-styled effort that has overflowing notes of black fruits, licorice, roasted meats, truffle and peppery herbs. Made from 100% Grenache that saw time in 1-, 2-, and 3-year-old small barrels and demi-muid, it’s full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and ripe, with big underlying structure. Just now at the early stages of maturity, it too will have 20-25 years of overall longevity. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine de Courcel Pommard 1er Cru "Rugiens" (94BH, (93-94RP), 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Courcel 2005 Pommard Rugiens comes from the chalkiest, upper portion of that great site (in fact, just below the domaine’s Vaumuriens). Everything about this wine just seems to be pulling together today – and in a promising direction. Mulberry, cassis, roasted meats, and black chocolate in the nose are joined by stimulatingly salty and soy-like savory notes on the palate. Full and rich but finely structured with incipient creaminess of texture, this displays impressive reach and grip and a seamless integration of fruit, meat, and mineral elements. (DS)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $243.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Delas Frères "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 95WS, 92ST, 92W&S, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted the 2005 Cote Rotie La Landonne earlier in the year, and it showed almost identically this go around. Still tight, structured and backwards, with the tannic bite that’s common in the vintage, it gives up lots of charcoal, graphite and meaty dark fruits as well as full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate and building tannin on the finish. It needs another 3-4 years of cellaring and will be very long lived. (JD) 95+" (03/2016)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Müller-Catoir Gimmeldinger Mandelgarten Riesling Spätlese Pfalz (90ST, 90WS). Wine Spectator: "Lithe and concentrated, this features peach, vanilla custard and a hint of grapefruit flavors matched to a bright structure. A tad pinched on the finish, but give this time to settle down. (BS)" (02/2007)
Starting Bid: $115.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine de Cristia "Renaissance" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 93WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The youthful, inky colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Renaissance knocked it out of the park with its smoking aromatics of cassis, blueberries, espresso roast, truffle and roasted meats. These gave way to a full-bodied, rich, sexy and concentrated 2005 that has beautiful underlying structure, plenty of mid-palate flesh, and a great finish. It will still be drinking beautifully in 2025. (JD)" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Nicolas Joly "Clos de la Coulée de Serrant" Savennières (93W&S, 92WS). Wine & Spirits: "Showing the rich depth of the vintage, this fills the palate with warm, velvety fragrance, expanding in a voluptuous and concentrated spectrum of flavor. The fruit is fresh and bright, inseparably intertwined with the typically pronounced minerality of the vineyard, and the aromas persist on the finish in spicy, honeyed complexity. It's a demanding, intensely soil-driven wine, and should enjoy a long development." (04/2008)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2005 La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva Rioja (1.5L) (96RP, 96WE, 95DC, 95JS, 94VN, 93W&S, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: This is usually my favorite wine from La Rioja Alta and 2005 is one of its best showings, going back to the quality of the vintages of the 1950s and 60s. The nose is very balsamic with notes of camphor, hints of mint, leather and hung game wrapped around a core of cherries in liqueur. Together it is balanced, subtle, truly elegant and classical. The palate is only medium-bodied but with great concentration of flavors that are very tasty, mineral, almost salty and framed by ultra-fine tannins and smashing balance. A great classic. At this quality level this is a bargain. (LG) (04/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96WS, 95DC, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. *#8 Top 100 Wines of 2008* (JM) " (04/2008)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Dominique Laurent "Clos de la Roche" Grand Cru ((92-95ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated, bright red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of black plum and dark chocolate. Silky on entry, then dense and sappy in the middle, with a rocky impression of energy. This builds and expands toward the back, saturating the palate with crushed stone and minerals. Wonderfully chewy Clos de la Roche with great potential. (ST)" (03/2007)
Starting Bid: $410.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Ponsot Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru "Cuvée des Alouettes" ((90-92RP), (90-92ST), 91BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From upper slopes and younger vines within the estate monopole of Clos des Mont Luisants comes the 2005 Morey-St.-Denis 1er Cru Cuvee des Alouettes. Smelling of blackberry and black cherry jam, chocolate, toasted almond, coconut, and mint, this fills the mouth with confiture and nut brittle flavors and offers exotic, high-toned inner-mouth esters and a tactile sense of stony, chalky minerality that sets up counterpoint with the wine’s remarkable creaminess. A forceful finish cannot be said to possess strong delineation or refinement, but what sheer richness and length! (DS)" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $260.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2005 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (1.5L) (98RP, 97JD, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: One of the true superstars in the vintage, the Sabon’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes is deeper and richer than the cuvee Chaupin, yet stays just as balanced, fresh and drinkable. Loaded with notes of ripe black fruits, smoked herbs, smoked meats and licorice, it has full-bodied richness and power, a deep, decadent texture and beautifully integrated acidity which keeps it pure, lively and fresh. It’s another incredible wine from this estate that will continue to thrill for a decade. (JD) (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $360.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2005 Domaine Joseph Roty Gevrey-Chambertin "La Brunelle" (92JG, (89-91RP), 91ST) and 1-bottle of 2005 Domaine Joseph Roty Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos Prieur Bas" ((89-90RP)). Of the 2005 Domaine Joseph Roty Gevrey-Chambertin "La Brunelle", John Gilman writes: "The La Brunelle bottling is often the most flattering of these AC bottlings to drink out of the blocks, but the 2005 will demand a bit of bottle age before it really starts hitting on all cylinders. The bouquet is excellent, as it delivers scents of plums, red cherries, cocoa, grilled meats, lovely minerality and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, refined and elegant, with excellent focus, fine-grained tannins, bright acids and lovely length and harmony on the finish. (Drink between 2014-2045) " (11/2007)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Domaine de Trévallon VdP des Bouches-du-Rhône (1.5L). Towering above the picturesque villages of Saint Rémy-de-Provence and Les Baux-de-Provence, the wind-swept Alpilles mountains, with their carved, tooth-like peaks, form a solid barrier between the Camargue to the south and Avignon to the north. Tucked at the bottom of this rock wall are a few estates enveloped in this serene beauty of Provence. Domaine de Trévallon is by far the most famous of these estates, and is the standard bearer for the region. There is no person that has done more to elevate the quality and prestige of the wines around Les Baux than Eloi Dürrbach. He began planting vines at the base of this mountain in the three "valleys" (from whence the estate gets its name) in 1973. He chose to plant Syrah, because of the northern exposure of his vineyards, and Cabernet Sauvignon due to the high level of chalk in the soil.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Shafer "One Point Five" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 92ST, 92WS, 90CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five, which is their Stags Leap blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 70% new oak barrels, of which half are French and half American. It’s the latter component that surprised me, because whatever American oak they’re using is wonderfully subtle and well-integrated. This wine has an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of charcoal, graphite, blackberry and an essence of gorgeously pure creme de cassis fruit mixed with spring flowers. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $500.01

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Beau-Séjour-Bécot, St-Emilion (96JD, 94RP, 93CG, 93VN, 92WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Beau-Sejour-Becot is another terrific 2005 that’s still young, yet offers plenty of pleasure. Crème de cassis, graphite and chocolate characteristics all emerge from this broad, fabulously pure, concentrated beauty. It’s just at the early stages of its drinking plateau and has another 2-3 decades of primes drinking ahead of it. Bravo!" (08/2018)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97RP, 96WS, 95JD, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is terrific, and is certainly the finest release since the ’98 and ’01. The same blend as the classic cuvee (85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and other varieties), it spent a full 48 months in old foudre prior to bottling. Gorgeously complex, with soaring garrigue, saddle leather, beef blood, iron and distinct minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, rich and layered on the palate, with a massive amount of fruit and tannin. Intense, Provencal, layered and decadent, enjoy this beauty over the coming 10-15 years. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $214.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (95JS, 95RP, 95WS, 94JG, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Haut Bailly is rapidly turning into a glorious wine. You instantly fall in love with the purity on the nose, luscious red cherries, wild strawberry and blueberry. This is still youthful and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a structured opening like many in this vintage. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth, quite tensile and linear and perhaps just tightening up a tad toward the finish. It is biding its time, but it will repay those who cellar this outstanding 2005 for another four or five years. (NM)" (07/2017)
Starting Bid: $260.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Joseph Roty Gevrey-Chambertin (90JG). John Gilman: "The Gevrey-Chambertin AC bottling is another new addition in 2005, and this too is a lovely wine. The bouquet is deep and perfumed, as it offers up a fine blend of black cherries, cocoa, a touch of grilled meat, lovely soil tones and a judicious framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, long and suave, with excellent depth and complexity, ripe tannins, tangy acids and fine length and grip. The finish closes with classic 2005 vintage notes of raw cocoa and blood orange. Lovely juice. (Drink between 2012-2030)" (11/2007)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Domaine du Vieux Lazaret "Cuvée Exceptionelle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle has turned out to be significantly better than I thought last year when I tasted it prior to bottling. The greatest wine Quiot has ever made in my opinion, this wine shows a dense ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, blackberry, kirsch, some roast beef and Provencal herbs. (RP)" (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $75.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Vincent Girardin Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (92ST, 91BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red-ruby. Blackberry, licorice, leather, flowers, minerals and smoky oak on the pure, complex nose. A bit less expressive in the mouth, but with enticing sweetness to its dense dark fruit, mineral and licorice flavors. Finishes layered and quite long, with a juicy quality and impressive chewy depth. (ST) 92+" (03/2008)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (98WS, 97RP, 97VN, 95JD). Wine Spectator: "This brick house is starting to emerge, slowly. There is still a substantial cloak of cocoa powder, brick dust and tar over the core of crushed plum, black currant and steeped cherry fruit that is just now starting to give way. The finish is hefty but exceptionally well-toned, with stunning length and cut thanks to seamless tannins. A smooth block of granite. The one for your children. Best from 2015 through 2040. (JM, Web Only-2012)"
Starting Bid: $442.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Artadi "Viñas de Gaín" Rioja (94RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Vinas de Gain is produced from 100% Tempranillo with vines ranging from 40-60 years of age. The wine is aged for 12-14 months in French oak, 40% new. 2005 is a very fine vintage throughout Rioja and this entry-level wine from the superstar Bodegas Artadi is an awesome value as well as mind-boggling in quality. Purple/black in color, it offers up a killer perfume that is super-sexy. Among its elements are truffles, pencil lead, vanilla, cherry, and black raspberry jam. Full-bodied, the wine is opulent yet elegant, concentrated, and superbly balanced. ... Kudos to Bodegas Artadi for this tour de force! (NM)" (02/2007)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (95RP, 94DC, 94WE, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sexy, style of wine from the Lurtons at Brane-Cantenac, this wine (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) has a stunning nose of forest floor, licorice, blackcurrants, plums and spring flowers. Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard. In spite of the wine’s stunning forward fragrance and lushness, the color still looks as if it is 3-4 years old, rather than a decade. This is a big-time winner in 2005 and should drink well for at least another 25+ years. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100RP, 100VN, 99JS, 97W&S, 97WE, 97WS, 94ST). Vinous: "The 2005 La Mission Haut-Brion is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. Effusive aromatics and bright, red-toned fruit make a strong first impression. A wine of vertical intensity and explosive energy, the 2005 is a towering masterpiece. Today it is just at the beginning of a long drinking window that will last another few decades. Red cherry, plum, leather, spice, gravel, smoke, blood orange and pomegranate infuse the palate staining finish. In 2005, La Mission is a wine that satisfies all the senses, from the intellectual to the hedonistic. Magnificent. Tasted two times. (AG)" (04/2021)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 95WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that continued to blossom with time in the glass, the 2005 Cote Rotie la Mordoree offers classic notes of raspberries, cured meats, dried violets and spice in a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless package. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with more olive and gamey flavors on the palate, drink this beautiful effort anytime over the coming two decades. (JD)" (03/2016)
Starting Bid: $155.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Fleur Cardinale, St-Émilion (94RP, 94VN, 93WS, 92ST). Vinous: "The 2005 Fleur Cardinale is packed with succulent red cherry, red plum, mint, blood orange, mocha and espresso. Sumptuous and bold, to the core, Fleur Cardinale is wonderfully immediate. Time in the glass really lets the wine shine. This is a rich, concentrated wine with a lot of oak, but one of the very best wines made in this style. It's a terrific showing from the Decoster family. (AG)" (04/2021)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Babcock "Déjà Vu - Rabbit Ridge Vineyard" Paso Robles Pinot Noir. Bryan Babcock describes the déjà vu feeling he experienced after securing the contract for grapes from this west-side Paso Robles vineyard that he had admired five years prior: "What started out last January as an eerie and perplexing feeling has evolved into a real déjà vu; the age old familiarity of Pinot Noir and limestone. It is one of those things that is old and at the same time, compelling. In a word, classic; like the Grand Cru Pinot Noir vineyards in Burgundy, where the underlying geological plates of limestone break through or get very close to the surface. With limestone gushing out of its dirt, will Déjà Vu ultimately produce wines that resemble great Burgundies? Time will tell. "
Starting Bid: $60.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Tempier "La Tourtine" Bandol (93RP, 93WS, 91JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Although the Migoua commands a higher price, in my opinion it is the Tourtine that represents Tempier's best cuvee. A wonderful, ebullient nose of blackberry, cherry, hedgerow and an almost savoury character. The palate has sublime balance and greater minerality than other cuvees; vigorous, utterly harmonious with a well-defined, wonderful poised finish. Outstanding. (NM)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 l'Arrosée, St-Émilion (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A Bordeaux that seems to have a Burgundian personality, L’Arrosée’s 2005 displays elegance and finesse, with sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, hints of minerality and earth, but soft tannin, a lush, medium-bodied style, and impressive concentration, purity and overall texture. By no means a blockbuster (in a vintage that produced almost endless numbers of them), this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15-20 years. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Hospices de Beaune (Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey) Corton Grand Cru "Cuvée Docteur Peste" . From the prestigious Hospices de Beaune holdings, a cuvée named after Dr. Jean-Louis Peste who practiced medicine for more than 30 years at the estate medical facility during the 19th century. About the cuvée from the domaine: "With 90% from very old vines or vines planted before 1985, this cuvée is made up of 43% of parcels of Chaumes and Voierosses facing south-south-west. Their vines were planted on four separate occasions between 1976 and 1985. The parcels of Les Bressandes, with the oldest vines dating from 1940, Les Fiètres and Les Grèves bring the final balance to this cuvée."
Starting Bid: $510.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 94WE, 93WS, 92CG, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This full-bodied wine is very concentrated, with a saturated bluish/purple color and a classic nose of mocha and espresso intermixed with crème de cassis and charcoal. The finish is a good 40-45 seconds, and the wine has a remarkable vibrancy and freshness from the vintage’s acidity. This is terrific stuff to drink now and over the next 12-15 years. (RP) 96+" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine J-F Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny ((90-92RP), 91JG, 90BH, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Combe d ‘Orveaux above the Chateau de Vougeot and Plantes (a premier cru), Mugnier’s 2005 Chambolle-Musingy puts forward a lovely nose of red raspberry, cherry, high-toned citrus oils, and heady gardenia perfume. A tender, infectiously-juicy and silken-textured palate brimming with fresh red raspberries and cherries leads into a bright sweetly-fruited, subtly spicy and chalky finish that successfully pulls through the striking floral fragrances and zesty citricity. (DS)" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Clarendon Hills "Piggott Range" Syrah South Australia (97RP, 96JH, 95WS, 93ST, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035. (JM)" (10/2007)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape (93WS, 92RP). Wine Spectator: "Quite ripe, with almost flashy fig, currant paste and mocha notes that slowly give way to more loam, tar and coffee flavors. This really shows its density on the finish, with hints of Port reduction and licorice pushed by ample but ripe tannins. (JM)" (04/2008)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2005 Ken Wright "Freedom Hill" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, 1-bottle of 2005 Ken Wright "Guadalupe Vineyard" Pinot Noir , 1-bottle of 2005 Ken Wright "Nysa" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (92RP, 90WS), and 1-bottle of 2005 Ken Wright "Shea Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (94RP, 91ST). Of the 2005 Ken Wright "Shea Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2005 Pinot Noir 'Shea Vineyard' is purple-colored with a superb aromatic array of pain grille, earth, spice box, black cherry, blueberry, and black raspberry. The wine is medium- to full-bodied with unusual depth for the vintage. There are layers of flavor, great integration, and a very long finish. Give it 4-6 years to open and drink it through 2027. (JM)" (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this 3 liter of 2005 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (3L) (98WS, 96JD, 95RP, 95ST, 94DC). Wine Spectator: "Really tight now, but packed with dark fig, currant, espresso, licorice and chocolate notes. Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak. *Collectibles, Top 100 Wines of 2007* (JM)" (12/2007)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Château de Saint Cosme "Valbelle" Gigondas (1.5L) (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deeper and richer than then classic cuvee, the Grenache dominated 2005 Gigondas Cuvee Valbelle offers an incredible bouquet of blackcurrants, charcoal, licorice, toasted spice and charred meats. Incorporating 10% Syrah, it’s full-bodied, deep and concentrated on the palate, with a smoking mid-palate, gorgeous fruit and a great finish. This is every bit as good as the Hominis Fides, and should drink well for another decade. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Maison Alex Gambal Clos Vougeot Grand Cru ((92-94BH), (91-92RP)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An unusually expressive nose for a young Clos de Vougeot mixes upper and lower register ripe fruit, earth, spice and subtle sauvage hints that dissolve into rich, full and serious but not particularly austere flavors that culminate in a hugely long, dusty and driving finish. There is real energy here and better still, it's focused and like the Ech, sufficiently firmly structured that a decade or more slumber in the cellar will be required. *Don't Miss!* " (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine d'Ardhuy Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Aux Clous" (90BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "From 60+ year old vines. Easily the most complex nose to this point with an assortment of earth, floral, spice and ripe dark berry fruit aromas that introduce, rich, sappy and intense flavors underpinned by buried but firm structure that will permit this to improve for up to a decade. An impressive Savigny. *Outstanding* " (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Rapet Corton Grand Cru (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is a bit of wood spice here as well with riper and more deeply pitched black fruit and floral notes leading to rich, full, robust and well-muscled flavors that coat the mouth with very firm tannins that are not aggressive but it's clear that this will not be a precocious '05." (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $88.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils Chambertin Grand Cru (96BH, (94-96JG), 95ST, 93RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A brooding but fresh nose trimmed in a bit of wood spice offers positively gorgeous aromatic breadth and merges into intense, well muscled and very focused full-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that are concentrated and very firmly structured yet the structure is almost completely buffered by the buckets of extract that confer an almost velvety quality to the hugely long finish. This is still very primary and will require the better part of two decades to really be arrive at its full potential. A seriously impressive Cham that is brilliantly balanced. Wow!" (01/2008)
Starting Bid: $320.00
