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 »

2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

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. The texture is silky and delicate, but the finish is quite powerful. This is a very stylish wine, and a very good deal thanks to a direct buy from the producer. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don’t feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years. Try in 2020."

With good sweetness, an attractive flavor profile, low acidity, and ripe tannin, it should provide enjoyment over the next 5-6 years.

It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard.

John Gilman: "This was the first vintage I had ever tasted of this lovely Cru Bourgeois, which lies next door to Sociando Mallet and is owned by the folks at Château Rauzan Gassies in Margaux. The cépages is sixty-five percent merlot and thirty-five percent cabernet sauvignon and the wine is never aged in more than ten percent new wood. The 2009 is really excellent, as it offers up a fresh, ripe and classy nose of cassis, black cherries, chocolate, tobacco smoke and a nice base of soil.

If you can't afford Las Cases, try some of this. Some might call this a second wine, but it comes from a plot of vineyards not deemed worthy of Léoville Las Cases. So it's like its own estate.

There’s a compressed floral spice and a touch of sweetness to the fruit that accommodates the mineral abrasion, the elements completely integrated, the flavors lasting for minutes.

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.

2009 La Clotte, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A seductive style of wine, as usual, La Clotte’s blend of generally 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (I do believe a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon is also present) displays spicy, fruity black currant and black cherry notes intermixed with loamy soil undertones, a hint of sagebrush, and herbs. It is a meaty, fleshy, rich wine with moderate tannins and decent acid levels. There is a sense of elegance and purity, but this is not a style that requires a lot of patience from its purchaser. Full-bodied, beautifully rou ...Read More »

2005 Lascombes, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Lascombes, Margaux

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this is the first vintage to hit stride since the US investment firm Colony Capital took over in 2001. It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic." (03/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, with an impressive nose of licorice, toasty oak, chocolat ...Read More »

2007 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne

92 points James Suckling: "Some slight reduction here, this has a lemon biscuit edge and attractive toasty autolysis influence. The palate is more about stone fruits with some mellow spicy flavors building to citrus through the finish. " (10/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This creamy version offers a lively bead and flavors of baked currant, toast and candied lemon zest. Fresh and easy-drinking, with an open-knit finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)" (12/2017)

2014 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Boudriotte"

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Orange zest, pear, crushed stone and gingery spices on the nuanced nose, along with an exotic smoky nuance. Rich and sweet but fresh, with concentrated flavors of ripe peach and flowers carrying through to a palate-staining finish. These 55-year-old vines are actually planted on humid, heavier clay-based soil at the foot of the hillside, but their deep roots reach the rocks underneath, giving the wine good calcaire energy and tension. Prior to 2004, Colin blended this fruit into his M ...Read More »

2012 Michel Arnould "Memoire de Vignes" Brut Champagne Back In Stock!
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.

2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Decanter: "Tight and unyielding at the moment, but with great pedigree, great texture and definition, this has lots of life to come. Poised and impactful, with juicy and mouthwatering fruit. Punches far above the weight of the vintage, one of those get-a-straw-in-the-glass wines: among the best of the tasting. Here tension rises, and your mouth waters on the finish. This is delicate but punchy, with perfect balance. Drinking window 2018 - 2040. (JA)" (06/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year ...Read More »

2008 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace

96 points Decanter: "This prestige cuvée is named after the man who started this Alsace wine dynasty, now in the hands of the 13th generation. Always a near-peerless Riesling, this new release is bone dry, structured and elegant, with savoury, nutty, autumnal notes and tangy citrus acidity. It's poised, powerful, complex and concentrated, with a seam of brisk yuzu-like acidity to complement the creamy nougat notes. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. (TG) " (02/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in t ...Read More »

2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A gorgeous wine that's a legend in the making, the 2002 Rare Brut is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, with just under 10 grams of dosage. Offering incredible notes of stone fruits, brioche, white flowers, and hints of toasted nuts, this flat out awesome wine is concentrated and opulent, yet still dances on the palate with vibrant acidity and great, great finish. It's going to drink beautifully for another two to three decades. Bravo! This cuvee has only been made in 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, and ...Read More »
