2012 Louise Brison Brut Champagne Top Pick!
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 »

2012 Louis Roederer Brut Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "Just over two-thirds pinot noir (Verzenay) and the balance southeast-facing chardonnay from Chouilly. This has 30% of oak fermentation which has compressed the wine, lending it an air of extreme concentration. The nose is gently spicy, offering peaches and cherries as well as neat autolysis edge. The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.

2012 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" (Elsewhere $60) Top Pick!
2012 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" (Elsewhere $60)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A subtle touch of wood sets off ripe and relatively elegant notes of earth, dark cherry and spice. The mid-palate is dense, serious and powerful with plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the moderately austere, backward and built-to-age finale. While this is presently backward it should be approachable after 6 to 8 years of bottle age though note that it should live for a very long time.

2012 Clairault "Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Black Label) (Previously $30)

95 points Decanter: "2012 was a showstopper of a vintage for Margaret River and it shows in this wine. The grapes were hand-harvested from the oldest vines on the Clairault Vineyard planted in 1976 and fermented on skins for 10 days before pressing by winemaker Bruce Drakes. The wine was matured in both new and used French oak for 10 months for textured finesse and subtle, rather than overt, cedary aromas. The Clairault property comprises of several vineyards with one of the highest grades of biodiversity in the Wilyabrup area. Dark and cedary, with cola ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Jaufrette Côtes-du-Rhone

When first tasting the wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette, the name López de Heredia sprang to mind. That famous Rioja producer is known for its late-release and complex reds that are subtle, old school and long lived. Jaufrette, to my mind, is the Rhône equivalent. Jaufrette is run by Frédéric Chastan, the third generation winemaker to oversee this project. The winery sits just outside the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation but has holdings in Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Côtes du Rhône. All the grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted, and the reds are ferment ...Read More »

2012 Villa Poggio Salvi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

93 points Wine Spectator: "This red offers purity and grace, backed by a sold structure. Strawberry and cherry flavors abound, matched to an elegant frame, with a firm line of tannins underneath. The bright fruit peeks through at the end, delivering equilibrium and a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2037. (BS)" (06/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "Some dried flowers and woody notes with red berries and cherries. The palate has a frame of sturdy tannins around ripe red plums and dark berries.

2012 Qupé "Sonnie's - Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard" Edna Valley Syrah (Previously $50+)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "An annual selection of the best barrels off of the hilly, gravelly site that Bob Lindquist planted in 2005, Sonnie's bursts with refreshing, detailed fruit in 2012, the flavors as dark and juicy as mulberries and black plums yet lively and mouthwatering, holding tightly to the stony cool of its structure. It's pretty irresistible now, but has an effortless balance that will allow it to age gracefully." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bob Lindquist shows his mastery of cool-climate fruit with this bottling, which is redo ...Read More »

2012 Castello di Bossi "Berardo" Chianti Classico Riserva (Elsewhere $34)

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas and flavors of plums, berries and orange peel. Full body, soft tannins and a fresh finish. Some balsamico too. Delicious red." (08/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a beautiful and complete expression of 100% Sangiovese with great textural richness and a big sense of power at the back. The wine starts off in a slow and rather understated manner, but it finds its momentum quickly and becomes very generous along the way. This Riserva needs to flesh out further. G ...Read More »
