2012 Bodegas Altanza Lealtanza Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2012 Bodegas Altanza Lealtanza Reserva Rioja

97 points Decanter: "Platinum medal in the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. Rounded and layered aromas of dried fruits, red cherry, smoke and coconut. Well polished and presented with red fruit and plum flavours sluicing through the palate. It is, simply, a beautiful wine with the X-factor." (09/2018) Jancis Robinson: "18 months in French oak. More meaty on the nose – makes me think of roast duck and cranberry sauce. Vibrant red-fruited tang at the heart, radiating out on broad-shouldered but attractively sculptured tannins.

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 »

This is our latest arrival from Miguel Merino, whom we like to call "the hardest working man in Rioja." Having begun his humble "retirement project" in the early 1990s by restoring an older bodega just down the hill from the historic town of Briones, Miguel either owns or rents to own a total of around 8 hectares of vines, all of which are located in Briones; not only is this village specific Rioja, but it happens to come from one of the most sought after villages in all of Rioja Alta, where many top bodegas have some of their most prized, older vineyard ...Read More »

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.

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.

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 »

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.

2012 Bodegas Lanzaga Rioja

94 points James Suckling: "The beauty of the fruit in this wine shows such balance and reserve. Yet it is so fine. Black cherry and fine tannins. Very polished. Drink now." (07/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Lanzaga shows the character of the year, but comes through as fresher and better balanced than the already impressive 2011. This blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano is sourced from their 14 hectares of organically farmed, head-pruned vineyards in the village of Lanciego. It fermented in 6,000-kilo cement vats with ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Dugois Vin de Paille Arbois (375ml)

In 1973, Daniel Dugois bought 2 hectares of vineyard and a house equipped with wine cellars in a village called Les Arsures, where he was born. He cultivated the vineyard and sold his production primarily to Henri Maire, one of the most prominent producers in Jura at that time. In 1982, Daniel made his first harvest in his own cellars and began to sell his wines to consumers. His first ever harvest earned him his first Gold Medal for his Chardonnay at the Jura Wine Contest. Daniel and his wife Monique have continued to work on the quality of their wines ...Read More »

2012 Hugel "Estate" Riesling Alsace

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Slight smoke mixes in the nose of this wine, with lifted mandarin-peel notes. The dry palate is streamlined and has uncommon lightness. It's weightless but concentrated, with full and bright citrus lift and a lively core brimming with lemon, bergamot and lime. The finish is wonderfully clean. This will drink well through 2024, at least. (AK)" (11/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "In contrast to the “Classic” this is still quite closed, due to the influence of the clay-rich Keuper marl soil of the Schoenenbourg. Dominant aroma ...Read More »

2012 Villa Poggio Salvi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $80)

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. Some herbal notes and a little chew to close. Try ...Read More »

2012 Pédesclaux, Pauillac

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2012 Château Pédesclaux is close to the 2011 qualitatively and is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, brought up in 75% new French oak (most vintages see 65% new oak). Cassis, toasted spice, graphite, and some pretty flower notes all emerge from this rich, nicely textured, balanced red that has fine tannin and outstanding length. It’s charming and has plenty of upfront appeal yet should cruise in the cellar for 15-20 years." (10/2018) 91 points James Suckling: "This shows much more clarity than th ...Read More »

2012 Alfio Mozzi "Grisone" Sassella

From the importer: "Near the tiny village of Castione Andevenno, Alfio Mozzi carefully tends his 3.5 hectares of terraced Nebbiolo vines in the superb Il Grisone site at an altitude varying from 350-600 meters on the slopes above the river Adda. Due to the varying altitude in this vineyard he can harvest each vine at different times and at optimal ripeness. The soil is about 80% sandstone and 20% limestone. Viticulture is in conversion to organic and in this last year he has converted 1ha to biodynamic farming. The age of the vines ranges from 5 year ...Read More »

2012 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah

95 points John Gilman: "The 2012 Rhys Syrah from the Horseshoe Vineyard is a bit less ripe in personality than the 2012 Skyline Vineyard version (please see below), coming in at an even thirteen percent octane and offering up simply stunning aromatic and flavor purity. The very complex bouquet smells like a Gérard Chave wine from the 1980s, soaring from the glass in a precise and classy constellation of cassis, black raspberries, roasted meats, raw cocoa, black olive, stony soil tones, a touch of medicinal young syrah, new leather, cedar and just a whisp ...Read More »
