1976 L'Encantada 42 Year Old "Domaine Le Sablé #19" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
This wonderful cask of ultra mature Armagnac is proof that we're still in an absurd state with regards to the price of old brandy from Gascogne. This rare product comes from a domaine that only produced 3 vintages - 1973, 1974 and 1976. We were lucky to acquire a cask of 1974 before they completely sold out and have worked hard to keep in Encantada's good graces. We were overjoyed to have been offered this exceptional barrel at more or less the same price as the one we sold previously. Sablé was a very traditional production using itinerant distillers an...

1995 L'Encantada 24 Year Old "Lous Pibous #146" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $250) (Elsewhere $250)
Top Pick!
The phenomenon that is Lous Pibous is unmatched in modern booze culture. Their rise to prominence in the eyes of the cognoscenti was so precipitous, it could never have been predicted. Truly, a modern legend. It was an overnight success. This tiny estate been anointed as one of the great Gascogne estates. The inherently limited nature of the stocks has created a stir. The golden age of brandy is here and Pibous might be its peak. It might have been lost completely had it not been for the great work of our partners at L'Encantada. We were very lucky to im...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fermented in wood and with the addition of a high proportion of reserve wines, this rich bottling displays a creamy texture and good acidity. It hints at the wood and is on the dry side. (RV)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: The Louis Victor from Coutelas is made in the solera style, from one large barrel containing a perpetual blend. Coutelas lists this as composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Meunier and Pinot Noir, but in fact, it is refreshed with 1/4 of the best wine vinified in a given year, while another 1/4 is taken out and bottled....

2015 Château de la Gardine "Cuvée des Générations Gaston-Philippe" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Elsewhere $100) (Elsewhere $100)
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Black raspberries, blueberries, scorched earth and roasted garrigue, with just a hint of oak, all emerge from this 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Générations Gaston-Philippe, and it's another smoking good 2015 from this team. Full-bodied, concentrated, rich and textured, it has the fruit to drink nicely today, yet will have two decades of overall longevity. The blend is 40% Grenache and 30% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah that was destemmed and aged 12 months in new French oak. There are just under 600 cases produced. 95+" (10/201...

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne (Previously $80) (Previously $80)
Top Pick!
Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth-generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750, and their cellars were built in 1822. The delectable Dilection is based on the incredible 2009 vintage with 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. Only French oak is used and the vineyard where the grapes are sourced was planted in 1902. It is rich, but classically dry with dark cherry and strawberry fruit on the finish, which lingers.

1988 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Frêche #17" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
The wonderful and mysterious "Domaine Le Frêche" is becoming, much like Encantada's other famous estate Lous Pibous, quite well regarded. Also like Lous Pibous, Le Frêche is not the name of the domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess. The most famous is the incredible Boingniere, whose Armagnacs are extremely sought-after and expensive. I...

Silky, seamless and focused on the palate, offering incisive strawberry, red currant and blood orange flavors and an exotic, sweetening touch of honey.

93 points James Suckling: "Another big, dark St.-Estèphe, but in spite of the rich body and some perceptible alcohol, there is also a cool, minty note. Slightly sweet finish in spite of all the tannins. Spice comes through at the end." (02/2017) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Fruit forward, this wine shows ripe blackberries and dark plums on the palate. It exudes a richness that is contrasted by intense acidity and lifted fruit flavors.

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Viognier Le Pied de Samson comes from old vines near the estate and is a beautiful, classic Viognier that's perfect for those looking for some Condrieu character while not breaking the bank. Giving up lots of white flowers, tangerines, and lemon curd notes, it's medium-bodied, has a textbook Viognier floral edge, outstanding balance, and is a hidden gem from this great estate.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a hint of wet chalk stone on the nose, along with crisp apple and a touch of lemon. The palate then amplifies both the chalky impression and the creamy mellow richness of the apple and the autolysis. This is restrained but very classic, understated but deeply satisfying with its creamy mousse, a hint of stone and the fruit-accentuated backdrop. The mousse is fine and the finish is wonderfully dry. (AK)" (11/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Pale straw with a persistent mousse. White stone fruit and fresh citrus on the delica...
Price: $17.99

A mistake at the winery kept the vintage off of the labels of these Jeroboams … So we have knocked $75 off each Jeroboam. This wine is a blend of very old vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rosé. This wine has been given the time that it needs for the two very different terroirs to marry, and is a spectacular example of the small scale blending of two great villages. I can't really think of anythi...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored, the 2010 L'Eglise Clinet begins unassumingly with gentle notions of fragrant dried flowers and wild sage leading to savory nut and meat characters over an expanding core of preserved plums, blueberry compote and black cherry coulis plus a waft of menthol. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully decadent, the palate is absolutely packed with rich, ripe black fruit preserves and loads of spicy sparks, framed by super ripe, super plush tannins, finishing very long and decadent. I love the int...

94 points Vinous: "Shimmering ruby-red. A highly expressive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries, cola, smoky minerals and licorice, and a sexy floral note builds as the wine opens up. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry pie, blood orange and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight and turn spicier with air. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and delicacy and finishes spicy, focused and very long, leaving floral and red fruit preserve notes behind. Once again, this bottling is, perhaps, the top '...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better, the 2016 Condrieu Les Chaillees de l'Enfer is vinified and aged in 25% new French oak (it’s made in the same fashion as the Coteau de Vernon). It would probably be the wine of the vintage if it wasn’t for its big brother. This vibrant gold-colored beauty boasts a huge nose of citrus blossom, tangerine, white flowers, citrus zest, and ample minerality. This is all about purity, finesse, and focus, with medium body, good acidity, and a terrific sense of salty minerality on the finish. It’s another brilliant wine from Ma...

Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, it has terrific purity (especially given the heat in the vintage) as well as lots of white flower, salted citrus, tangerine, and a kiss of rocky minerality.

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very pungent nose is composed by notes of petrol, smoke and sulfur that are enough to bury the fruit at present so I would suggest decanting this first if you’re tempted to try a bottle young.

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Condrieu Chaillees De L'Enfer comes from a hillside just next to Coteau de Vernon and was first made in 1992. It's brought up exactly like the Coteau de Vernon, so the difference (and there are always differences between the two wines) are all due to terroir. Stunning notes of ripe citrus, orange pith, spice, and floral notes all emerge from the glass, and this medium to full-bodied Condrieu has good acidity, a vibrant, elegant texture, and a great finish.

From the importer: "For Thierry Michon, the gregarious force behind one of the Loire’s best-kept secrets, Domaine Saint Nicolas, it’s all about the soil. Working on schist and silex a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic, Thierry is the prophet of biodynamics in this tiny viticultural area. His vineyards never see a non-organic product. He has slowly purchased buffer zones all around his property to prevent chemical products from other winemakers from seeping into his parcels.
