2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points James Suckling: "The best Dom since 2002. A vintage with very restrained, powerful style that has been released non-sequentially after the 2009. This has a lighter stamp of highly curated, autolytic, toasty aromas than many recent releases. Instead, this delivers super fresh and intense aromas of lemons, grapefruit and blood-orange peel. Incredible freshness here. The palate has a very smoothly delivered, berry-pastry thread with light, sweet spices, stone fruit and fine citrus fruit. This really delivers. Drink now or hold."

2012 Louise Brison Brut Champagne

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Disgorged in September 2017 and released in spring 2018, the 2012 Brut Millésime is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, half of which underwent malolactic fermentation. This cuvée opens with a fine, pure and smoky bouquet. Delicate but firm and very mineral on the palate, this is a highly refined and finessed Champagne with lush and aromatic yet graceful cherry fruit. It is pure and elegant on the finish, though it is still young. This is the first release, and 400 bottles will be kept in the library for ...Read More »

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. This 100% Ay grand cru Champagne is composed of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, all from the family estate. Although the Champagne has no dosage whatsoever, it is still full and rich. It has a great nose of baguette toast, cream and some of that famous Ay chalk. The finish is long, clean and very dry, but not too strict. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

All Mesnil grand cru bargain!!!! This wine comes from all estate-grown fruit in the grand cru of Mesnil. It is a very clean wine with pure flavors and a complex, subtle nose.

Both Elisabeth and her husband Nicolas François already have founder's cuvées named in their honour. From 100% grand cru fruit (5% vinified in old oak), this spends 11 years on its lees with partial malolactic fermentation, and has a 6g/l dosage.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico represens a blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia del Chianti that is aged in small oak barrels called caratelli for seven long years. This is a beautiful expression that is not too sweet or heavy. Indeed, it offers a noticeable level of elegance and sophistication that you don't always find in this category of dessert wine from central Italy. The bouquet shows candied fruit, honey, brown sugar and grilled herb. Fèlsina produces 9,000 bottles of this wine, making it one of the bi ...Read More »

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.

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Fascination" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)

Alexandre Le Brun is the smallest producer that we import, or even carry from Champagne at just 7.5 acres. He only makes wine from half of the grapes he brings in, selling the rest off to negociants--his production is just one thousand cases a year total. This tiny scale allows Alex to do nearly everything himself and this hands-on approach shows through in the finished product. He only uses his own estate fruit for his Champagne, and although small, it is diverse. He farms 22 plots in eight different villages. Among these are the oldest vines that I hav ...Read More »

2012 Michel Arnould "Memoire de Vignes" Brut Champagne

This is exclusively old vine Pinot Noir (over 60 years) from the best parcel in Patrick's holdings and he only makes one press load. This is vinous, powerful, black fruited Champagne in the mold of the Vieilles Vignes Francaises from Bollinger. Because of the north-facing exposure, the wine retains its finesse even at the very high level of concentration that it has. Even the fullest cellar should be rearranged for a little of this.

1978 Palacios "Glorioso" Reserva 4o Año Rioja

Palacios is one of the lesser known names for older bottlings of Rioja, though of course many are familiar with Alvaro Palacios and his similarly named bodega, Palacios Remondo, for their very good modern day bottlings. This cuatro año bottling refers to the fact that this sees three years of barrel ageing, and is released in its fourth year and it hails from the very solid 1978 vintage, one of the decade's best.

91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of mushroom, berries and dried flowers, with a hint of cereal, follow through to a full body, with sweet and ripe fruit and lots of toasty oak. But this is pretty and fruity. An excellent value. (JS, Web Only-2009)" K&L Notes: Can this price be correct? Absolutely! The members of our Signature Red Wine Club sucked up the 250 cases of the 2003 vintage we bought faster than you could say "across the street from Altesino"! Situated in the northern extremities of Montalcino this tiny property has only been making wine for a ...Read More »

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 »

2013 Kistler "Dutton Ranch" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2013 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch, this leans more toward tropical fruits, such as pineapple and mango, with buttery brioche notes, a good, deep, rich full-bodied mouthfeel and one of the more exotic personalities in this portfolio. Drink over the next 4-6 years. (RP)" (05/2016) 94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is open, radiant and quite giving. Candied lemon, orange peel, spice, mint and floral notes meld together in a sensual, finely-knit Chardonnay long on depth and class. Deceptive ...Read More »

2007 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, the 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin and impressive precision and depth. It can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years. (RP)" (12/2009) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and firm, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, graphite, blackberry and mineral notes. Full-bodied a ...Read More »

2013 Michel Arnould "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne

The Carte d'Or from Arnould makes up less than 2% of their small production, and then not every year. Patrick Arnould trades grapes with Delphine Cazals for this wine, which 50% Mesnil Grand Cru from her estate, and 50% old vine Pinot Noir from the Arnould estate in Verzenay. Our allocation is tiny, and this Champagne is capable of very long ageing. -Gary Westby
