2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Back In Stock!
2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points John Gilman: "The 2008 vintage of Dom Pérignon is an absolute classic in the making and this is destined to be one of the great recent years for this iconic cuvée. It is far more classically structured out of the blocks than the relatively generous 2009 version, offering up a deep, complex and very youthful bouquet of menthol, green apple, a touch of tangerine, a very complex base of minerality and notes of dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with precise mousse, brisk aci ...Read More »

2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points James Suckling: "Disgorged October 2016 and will be the first Cristal to be released ten years from harvest when it is offered in 2018. 35 parcels used from a possible 45 in this vintage. The assemblage is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This is so fresh and tense and mineral with extremely exuberant chardonnay notes on the nose of white peach, lemon and yellow grapefruit, and hints of almost brambly sous bois aromas. The yeast characters are also super fresh, and there are subtle woody notes, with a hint of vanilla bean and light spices. T ...Read More »

91 points James Suckling: "A deep wine and very dry with sliced green apple and lemon rind. Some yeast. Full body, tight and dense. Hints of cooked apple. A bright and very drinkable Champagne."

It is certainly one of the most exciting bottles of vintage Champagne in the store, from a vintage that many in the region consider the best in a generation.

2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer. There's something about this weird little place o ...Read More »

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK!

Tullibardine is a small distillery in the village of Blackford, gateway to the Highlands. It's history goes back to the 15th century as a brewery of fine beers. In fact, it's first royal charter for beer was established in 1503. It's modern history as a distillery is quite a bit younger, but no less well received.

In 2008 Delamotte has all of the kaleidoscopic, multi-dimensional personality of the vintage, but the full malolactic fermentation softens some of the natural angularity of the year.

2008 Agusti Torelló Mata "Kripta" Cava Brut Penedes

Eight generations have passed since Nicolas CHIQUET planted his first vine in 1746. In 1919, brothers Fernand and Gaston Chiquet, winemakers born and bred, came together to create their house, Chiquet Brothers. They were pioneers in Champagne, among the very first winemakers to take the initiative (bold at the time), to keep their grapes, turn them into Champagne and sell their own product. In 1923, they were awarded their first medal in Paris, then their gold medal in Epernay. The 2008 is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, aged on the lees fo ...Read More »

2008 Tobermory 8 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Refill Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th and 5th fill cask. The slightly feinty style of the malt really needs some higher quality oak to be softened enough to release its complexity, but once it does it can be an absolute treat. There's no question that Tobermory has the potential to provide incredible depth and enjoymen ...Read More »

92 points Vinous: " Lassalle's 2007 Brut Special Club 1er Cru is bright, energetic and finely cut, with plenty of citrus and floral notes. Medium-bodied and light on its feet, the 2007 is a terrific choice for readers who favor clean, crisp Champagnes. I would prefer to drink the 2007 as an aperitif or alongside lighter foods. Disgorged: September 2015. Dosage is 8-9 grams per liter. (AG)" (12/2017)

2008 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan Back In Stock!
2008 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

97 points Decanter: "For me, Haut-Brion stands a few notches above La Mission in this vintage. It's a wine which is almost impossible to spit forwards rather than backwards! The entire palate climbs upwards, with a mineral kick and slatey walls. This is the most complex wine that I have tasted so far, showing layers of cassis, rosemary and freshly picked mint - utterly gorgeous, and another wine of the vintage contender. Drinking Window 2020- 2038 (JA) " (12/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is profound! 2008 Haut-Brion: The extraord ...Read More »

2008 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien Back In Stock!
2008 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage, and a remarkable achievement in 2008, with impressive richness, this dense purple colored wine is almost as opaque as the 2010. Spring flowers, crushed rocks, creme de cassis and some subtle oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine that transcends the vintage character in its power, richness, and aging potential. It also exhibits tremendous precision, purity, and depth of character. It is more forward than the 2010 is likely to be, but probably not as sumptuous as the ...Read More »

2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (scuffed, wrinkled label)

95 points Vinous: "Mocha, espresso, rosemary, lavender, plums and licorice emerge from the 2008 Opus One. Tasted from magnum, the 2008 is beautifully expressive. The firm tannins need more time to soften, but there is a lot to like in the 2008. Today the 2008 is showing beautifully. In magnum, the 2008 can be enjoyed today or cellared up to another 20 years or so. If opened young, the 2008 needs a few hours of air to soften. The bright, floral, spiced finish suggests a long life ahead. (AG)" (11/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous roses, currants ...Read More »

2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

Goes on for minutes. This is amazing and firm, with a racy character. Best after 2016." (09/2011) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Ornellaia continues to blossom in the bottle. Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, blackberries and mocha are just some of the many notes that explode from the glass. A rich tapestry of licorice, tar and camphor notes develop i ...Read More »

2008 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

97 points Vinous: "Super-ripe black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice make a strong opening statement in the 2008 Pichon Lalande. The late harvest that year yielded a decidedly super-ripe, exotic Pichon Lalande with captivating inner sweetness and gorgeous textural finesse. Naturally, the 2008 is young. Very young. Even so, it is stunning. Readers looking for an under-the-radar vintage to cellar of Pichon Lalande will find tremendous satisfaction and pure pleasure in the 2008.
