Bid on this bottle of 2009 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93W&S, 91RP, 90CG). Wine & Spirits: "The finesse of Stags Leap District tannins is at the center of this wine, buoying pure cherry fruit from the initial scent through to a lasting finish. This is firm and vinous, with a depth and breadth that makes it a strong candidate for cellaring ten years or more. A graceful vintage of S.L.V.." (02/2013)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 3-bottles of 2009 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (91ST, 91WS, 90JS) and 1-bottle of 2009 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (95WS, 93JS, 91ST, 90CG). Of the 2009 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Wine Spectator writes: "Ripe and deeply flavored, concentrated and well-structured, this full-bodied red offers a complex mix of black cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's pure and persistent, ending with a pebbly note and firm tannins. *Wine of the Year, Top 100 Wines of 2011* (JL)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (98RP, 97WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard is a gorgeous, clearly California version of a grand cru from Burgundy, such as Clos Saint-Denis or Clos de la Roche. This deep plum/garnet-colored wine offers intense berry fruit along with forest floor, spice box, earth and loads of plum, cherry and strawberry notes, moving toward darker fruits, as well as earthy, autumnal, foresty scents. The wine is full-bodied, with great intensity, sweet tannins and good acidity. (RP)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $550.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (100JD, 100RP, (98-100WE), 98JS, 96ST, 96WS, 95DC, 95VN). 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. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years. (RP) " (12/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (98JS, 96RP, 94DC, 94WS). James Suckling: "A wine with intense spice and berry character, with hints of sweet tobacco. It changes all the time from flowers to fruit and wet earth. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and ripe fruit. It's long and juicy with lovely fruit. Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here." (02/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (OWC - 99JD, 99RP, 97WS, 96ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shockingly good, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin offers an off-the-charts bouquet of Provençal herbs, truffle and wet-dog-like qualities intermixed with classic blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit. Massive and full-bodied on the palate, with a sheer density and decadence that’s hard to believe, this is a pedal-to-the-metal effort that has the fruit to drink beautifully today, yet the concentration, mid-palate, tannin and balance to age for 3-4 decades. Made from a blend of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah and the rest Counoise and Grenache, this is one of the wines of the vintage. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $825.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 92CG, 92WE, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is just a little closed and broody to begin, opening out to earthy notes of damp soil, truffles and mossy tree bark over a core of crème de cassis, baked plums and fruitcake plus wafts of tar, dried sage and chargrill. Full-bodied, rich and wonderfully savory in the mouth, it has a rugged frame of chewy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and earthy. (LPB)" (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $88.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien (95JS, 95RP, 95VN, 93WE, 92WS). Vinous: "The 2009 Gruaud Larose has a fresh, backward, tightly coiled bouquet with ample blackberry and bilberry fruit, fine tension and focus, a nose that is intending to last the distance (and why not?) The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and vibrant, laced-like tannin with a wonderfully detailed and persistent finish. This is some quality winemaking here and it is a wonderful 2009 Saint-Julien. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)" (03/2019)
Starting Bid: $400.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Giovanni Chiappini "Guado de' Gemoli" Bolgheri Superiore (100WE). Wine Enthusiast: "This small, family-run estate in the heart of Bolgheri has delivered a wine so beautiful and elegant, it is catapulted to the level of landmark vintages of its celebrated neighbors, Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Inky concentration sets the stage for generous, but perfectly integrated, aromas of spice, chocolate and dark fruit. There's firm roundness in the mouth, followed by unforgettable persistence. Hold this wine 15 years or more. *Cellar Selection, Best of the Year 2013*" (04/2013)
Starting Bid: $305.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100JS, 99RP, 98DC, 98WS, (95-97WE), 96ST, 96VN, (93-95JG)). James Suckling: "This is what the Medoc is all about. The freshness and delicacy of this wine in combination with its serious concentration and firm core are totally stunning. Time has already worked its magic and this is already delicious, but has decades in front of it. Drink or hold. " (02/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Mollydooker "Velvet Glove" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (97JD, 96RP, 96WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The estate’s top Shiraz, the 2009 Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove is a gorgeous bottle of wine! 100% McLaren Value Shiraz, aged in 97% new American oak, the wine exudes class and charm with decadent blackberry and cherry fruits, chocolate ganache, vanilla, meat juice, and coffee bean like aromas and flavors. Despite the overall size here, this stays beautifully focused and fresh, showing not only solid purity of fruit, but also a layered, already complex profile. Superb stuff!" (06/2011)

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru "Les Taillepieds" (1.5L) ((92-94BH), (91-93RP), (90-92ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A restrained yet perfumed nose is the essence of wet stone and ripe Pinot, all trimmed in dried floral notes. Like the Mitans, this is also positively crystalline as the flavors seem to be composed from liquid rock and deliver positively huge length along with the hallmark finishing austerity of a young Taillepieds. A highly impressive effort of impeccable balance. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs" (1.5L) (95BH, 95RP, 94VN, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Volnay Clos Des Ducs is the only wine in this lineup that is playing its cards close to the vest. Weightless yet powerful, the Clos des Ducs impresses for its striking balance and poise. There is so much going on in the glass its hard to know where to start. Floral notes meld into hints of licorice, sweet red cherries and mint in this crystalline, totally gorgeous Volnay. Today the tannins are impossibly firm, so readers will have to be patient. (AG) 95+" (04/2012)
Starting Bid: $801.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 94ST, 94VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium from the Weitz Vineyard reveals lots of minerality along with sweet red and black currants, licorice, graphite and spring flowers. Deep and full-bodied, it is displaying a lot of tannin in addition to a reserved, backward, brooding style. Everything is there for super enjoyment and high quality, but patience is required. (RP) 95+" (10/2013)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Domaine Tempier "La Tourtine" Bandol (1.5L) (93WS). Wine Spectator: "Ripe, rich and brooding, with a meaty aroma and deep powerful flavors of Christmas pudding, plum compote and mocha. Features a sinewy midpalate, showing saline notes on the savory finish. (KM)" (12/2012)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Continuum Oakville Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 95RP, 95VN, 94WS, 93CG, 92WE) in original wood. Vinous: "The 2009 Continuum is still in that part of its life where fruit and texture dominate, while the more aromatic qualities are yet to fully emerge. A rich, explosive wine, the 2009 can be enjoyed young for its exuberance, but the best is yet to come. Personally, I would wait a bit on the 2009. The finish is rich, layered and sumptuous. (AG) 95+" (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $315.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Bodegas J. A. Calvo Casajús "Nic" Ribera del Duero (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Casajus NIC is the top wine, sourced from a single 1.5 hectare plot that yielded less than 2,500 kilogram per hectare (NIC, by the way, is the abbreviation of Nicolas and Catalina, Jose Alberto’s children.) It is raised in new 500-liter Allier barrels over 18 months. It has a very intense nose of raspberry, fresh strawberry, maraschino and blood orange that effortlessly embraces the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte, succulent tannins, the oak playing a complementary role (in my opinion, the use of larger barrels moderating their influence.) It is struck through with outstanding acidity and wonderful minerality toward the finish. It shimmers in the mouth: so much purity you want to cry. (NM)" (02/2013)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 David Arthur "Elevation 1147" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 99WE, 94RP, 91VN) in original wood. Wine Enthusiast: "There are incredible aromatics on this Cabernet. It’s powerful yet subtle (how can that be?), all about sweet, crushed summer blackberry and pure cassis liqueur. Elaborate oak, in the form of buttered toast, is perfectly in balance, never overshadowing the fruit. The tannins are dry, rich and smooth, defining Napa elegance, grace and beauty. World class, dramatic and just about perfect, this gets better and better as it breathes in the glass. *Top 100 Wines of 2012*" (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $700.00

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L) (100JS, 99RP, 98WS, (95-97WE), 96ST, 96VN, (93-95JG)). James Suckling: "This is what the Medoc is all about. The freshness and delicacy of this wine in combination with its serious concentration and firm core are totally stunning. Time has already worked its magic and this is already delicious, but has decades in front of it. " (02/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Échézeaux Grand Cru (96VN, 94WS). Vinous: "The 2009 Grands Échézeaux Grand Cru is not going to win any awards for nuance, but it is explosive, hedonistically satisfying and just tremendously delicious. After all, the first thing a wine should do is deliver pleasure. The 2009 GE certainly does that. Wow. (AG)" (11/2019)
Starting Bid: $2,800.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Marcassin "Blue Slide Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (98RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2009 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge reminds me of one of the great vintages of the DRC Vosne-Romanée. Notes of forest floor, jammy raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries and spring flowers are followed by a full-bodied, textured, layered mouthfeel, and great intensity, precision and freshness. This stunning 2009 is already showing considerable complexity, and should age effortlessly for 10-15 years. The visionary husband and wife team of John Wetlaufer and Helen Turley have created a largely unprecedented legacy of extraordinary quality that is unsurpassed by anyone else in Northern California. (RP)" (12/2013)
Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Tortochot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Champeaux" (91BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "In contrast to the brooding nose of the Lavaut, this is actually quite expressive with ripe but relatively fresh and cool aromas of an array of red berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with stone and underbrush notes. There is very fine intensity to the concentrated and extract-rich medium-bodied flavors that despite the suave mouth feel exhibit fine delineation on the intense, long and chewy finish. This is very firmly structured and will need ample time to come together." (01/2012)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Figeac, St-Emilion (97DC, 96JS, 96WE, 96WS, 95JD, 94RP, 93ST). Decanter: "This is nudging its evolution a little quicker than the 2010. The fruit is beginning to soften, not to tertiary aspects yet, but there are hints of black truffles and wood smoke. For me the 2010 is the clear winner of the two in terms of longevity, but this is still an extremely accomplished wine that should be celebrated. It has excellent freshness for such a warm year, showing the benefit of its Cabernets, and yet there is no austerity on display - rather it is full of beautifully seductive and richly spiced flavours. Wonderful. (JA)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Clos des Porrets St-Georges" (94JG, 92BH, 92RP, 92ST). John Gilman: "Simply said, I have never tasted a better young vintage of Clos des Porrets from the Gouges family. The 2009 is a stunning bottle in the making, as it soars from the glass in a beautiful blaze of sappy red and black cherries, raw cocoa, great minerality, incipient notes of gamebirds, vinesmoke, coffee, floral tones and a topnote of Nuits nutskins. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and very pure, with a bottomless, sappy core of fruit, great transparency, fine-grained tannins and simply stunning length and grip on the perfectly balanced and very nuanced finish. This is a great, great young vintage of Clos des Porrets!" (11/2010)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (1.5L) (95JS, 95RP, 94ST, 93DC, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Flaccianello della Pieve is now hitting that very specific point in a wine's evolution in which you still identity some of the fruit, but you also get a supporting chorus of evolved aromas that enhance the overall finesse and depth of the bouquet. This wine is coming along beautifully and seems right on point in terms of its forward moving aging trajectory. Dried blackberry, cherry confit and plum are rounded out by spice, toast and bitter chocolate. The bouquet fires out on multiple sides, thus increasing the perceived complexity on hand. This vintage is very open and frank, and this is another endearing quality to admire. (ML)" (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Bila-Haut "Rectificando Invenies (RI)" Côtes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde (91WS). Wine Spectator: "Powerful and complex, with pepper and iron notes behind the dark currant, wild plum and dried raspberry flavors. Mineral and slate linger on the muscular finish, with hints of smoke and mint. (KM)" (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (100JD, 100RP, 97JS, 96DC, 96VN, 96WE, 95ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract. (RP)" (12/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Sine Qua Non "Upside Down" Grenache (96RP, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Grenache Upside Down emerges from the glass with layers of dark red fruit as it sweeps across the palate. There is an inner sweetness and sheer depth that make the 2009 compelling. The 11% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre make themselves heard clearly in adding layers of depth and pure richness. Tar, anise and graphite meld together on the rich, dramatic finish. This is a striking wine endowed with tons of pure textural dimension. The 2009 was sourced from Eleven Confessions (72%), Cumulus (22%) and Bien Nacido (6%) vineyards. (AG)" (04/2012)
Starting Bid: $235.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100JS, 100RP, 98DC, 98WS, 97VN, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What a blockbuster effort! Atypically powerful, one day, the 2009 Haut-Brion may be considered to be the 21st century version of the 1959. It is an extraordinarily complex, concentrated effort made from a blend of 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc with the highest alcohol ever achieved at this estate, 14.3%. Even richer than the perfect 1989, with similar technical numbers although slightly higher extract and alcohol, it offers up a sensational perfume of subtle burning embers, unsmoked cigar tobacco, charcoal, black raspberries, wet gravel, plums, figs and blueberries. There is so much going on in the aromatics that one almost hesitates to stop smelling it. (RP)" (02/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (96JS, 95RP, 93DC, 92ST, 92VN). James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of licorice, flowers and blackcurrants follow through to a full body with wonderful silky and caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. It’s complex and exceptional. " (03/2015)
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Montrose, St-Estèphe (100JS, 100RP, 98VN, 97DC, 97WS, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Harvested between September 17 and October 5, this wine seems always open for business, so to speak, much like the great 1982s. The summer of 2009 was very hot and dry, which got the harvest off to a reasonably early start. The blend was 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Jean Bernard Delmas’ goal was to find perfect equilibrium between freshness and concentration, given its incredible opulence and the voluptuous character this vintage offered. That’s what this wine has in abundance. With an astounding dense purple color, the wine has velvety, sweet tannins, and an extremely open-knit and opulent blueberry, blackberry and creme de cassis nose. (RP)" (08/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (99RP, 98DC, 98JS, 98WS, 97VN, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (98RP, 97JS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The super rich and velvety 2009 Galatrona was the headline performer in this vertical tasting going back to the 1997 vintage. This is a beautiful bottle that projects a deep sense of confidence and enormous beauty, inside and out. It offers an irresistible contrast between its sweet side and its savory side with dried cherry, blackberry preserves, scorched earth, smoked bacon and dark spice. The wine's appearance is inky black and thickly concentrated. Despite that richness, its nuanced complexity is put on clear display. This is a beautiful wine from a tremendous vintage. (ML)" (05/2017)
Starting Bid: $400.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98DC, 98WE, 97RP, 96WS, 95ST). Wine Enthusiast: "A bold, muscular, striking wine with nerves of steel, this offers a dense, demanding array of black fruit threaded with veins of espresso, smoke, tar, tobacco and iron. As it bursts with exotic barrel flavor, the fruit seems a bit buried, but time after time these wines unfold over the course of decades into glorious maturity. These are arguably the most long-lived and cellarworthy wines in Washington if not in the entire country. *Cellar Selection* (PG)" (09/2012)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Porêts-St-Georges" ((91-93BH), 92JG, 92ST, 92WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Moderate floral notes add breadth to the very fresh and earthy red currant and plum aromas that lead to precise, vibrant and attractively transparent medium-bodied flavors that are complex, serious and persistent. This is a classic Nuits with fine balance. *Outstanding*" (01/2011)
Starting Bid: $127.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 O'Shaughnessy Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet colored 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder needs a little coaxing to reveal notes of crème de cassis, espresso, pencil lead and prunes with touches of cigar box, chargrill, truffles and cast iron pan. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with expressive black fruit preserves and loads of earthy/mineral nuances, framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and enticing freshness, finishing long and savory. This still has loads of cellaring potential! (LPB) 97+" (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $370.01

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2009 Poujeaux, Moulis (OWC - 95JS, 92DC, 92JD, 92ST, (90-92WE), 91VN, 90RP) in original wood. James Suckling: "Stunning nose of cassis, plum and bitter chocolate. Real concentration and a great balance of ripeness, fine tannins and bright acidity drive the complex finish along at an astonishing clip. Delicious now, but will hold." (02/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Latour, Pauillac (100JS, 100RP, 99DC, 99VN, 99WE, 99WS, (96-98JG)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby—this needs time! (LPB)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (OWC - 98JS, 97DC, 96RP, 96WE) in original wood. James Suckling: "An extremely rich and ripe wine with currant, cherry and balsamic aromas. Hints of leather. Follows through on the finish. Full body, round and velvety tannins that are reserved and beautiful. Sweet and sour. Savory, too. Drink or hold. This has a long life ahead of it." (10/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Volnay Clos Des Ducs is the only wine in this lineup that is playing its cards close to the vest. Weightless yet powerful, the Clos des Ducs impresses for its striking balance and poise. There is so much going on in the glass its hard to know where to start. Floral notes meld into hints of licorice, sweet red cherries and mint in this crystalline, totally gorgeous Volnay. Today the tannins are impossibly firm, so readers will have to be patient.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Frémiets" (93-95RP, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This outstanding Fremiet contains oodles of dark cherry and boysenberry fruit on the nose with very fine definition. Tightly coiled but very focused. The palate has a pretty, quite tannic entry, very nicely poised with wonderful mineralite towards the crisp, focused vintage. Bon vin! (NM)" (03/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Giuseppe Rinaldi "Brunate-Le Coste" Barolo (96VN, 94JS, 93RP, 93ST, 93WS, 92WE). Vinous: "Dark cherries, plums, cloves, violets, incense, orange rind and tobacco meld together in the 2009 Barolo Brunate-Le Coste. A massive, powerful Barolo, the 2009 boasts stunning depth, power and richness, all in a relatively open style for this estate. I imagine the 2009 will drink well relatively early for top-flight Barolo, but it has fabulous class and intensity. (AG)" (10/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" ((91-93BH), (90-92VN)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An extremely ripe yet not surmature nose of menthol, plus liqueur and cassis aromas lead to very rich, indeed even opulent medium-bodied flavors that exude an abundance of palate coating dry extract on the velvety, powerful and coffee-infused finish of dramatic persistence. This is not an especially elegant version of the appellation nor does it have the intense minerality of the best examples yet it is compelling in its own right." (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Rotem & Mounir Saouma (Le Moine) "Arioso" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 94WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Grenache and more perfumed and complex, the 2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Arioso was fermented with 100% whole-cluster before spending three years in 500-liter demi-muids. Never racked, pumped, fined or filtered, it offers up a glorious bouquet of wild strawberries, grilled bread, saddle leather, underbrush and licorice to go with a full-bodied, deep and layered feel on the palate. Gaining richness with air, this awesome wine should start to hit prime time in another 3-4 years and have 15-20 years of total longevity. Drink 2016-2029. (JD)" (10/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Beaune 1er Cru "Boucherottes" (93JG, 92VN). John Gilman: "The 2009 Boucherottes from Louis Jadot is the finest young vintage of this cru that I can recall ever tasting here. The nose is deep, pure and very vibrant, as it jumps from the glass in a blend of black cherries, dark berries, complex soil tones, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very long, with great focus and balance, ripe, suave tannins and great bounce from sound acids on the long and intensely flavored finish. The backend of this wine is stunning, as it really takes off from the mid-palate back. Great juice." (11/2010)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "150th Anniversary Cuvée" (94RP, 94VN, 91BH). Vinous: "The 2009 Beaune 1er Cru 150th Anniversary is every bit as magical as it has always been. There is a translucence to the fruit that is just remarkable. That is the good news. The not so good news is that the 2009 remains very tightly wound and in need of further cellaring. The aromatics are just starting to open up, but the tannins remain quite fierce. Readers who own the 2009 should be prepared to cellar it for at least a few years. There is an effortlessness to the 2009 that is hard to describe, but that gives the wine its sense of impeccable balance. Hints of sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, dried herbs and cherry add the closing shades of aromatic nuance to this gorgeous, compelling Beaune from Jadot. The 2009 is a blend of 17 different sites.
