2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (Pre-Arrival)

98 points John Gilman: "The 2008 vintage of Dom Pérignon is an absolute classic in the making and this is destined to be one of the great recent years for this iconic cuvée. It is far more classically structured out of the blocks than the relatively generous 2009 version, offering up a deep, complex and very youthful bouquet of menthol, green apple, a touch of tangerine, a very complex base of minerality and notes of dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with precise mousse, brisk acids and stunning length a ...Read More »

2006 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2006 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey's beautiful 2006 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a classic bouquet of hot rocks intermixed with graphite, cassis, incense, and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable but sweet tannin, impressive purity, and an alluring texture, it is relatively evolved for a 2006, so consumption over the next 15 years is recommended. (RP)" (2/2009) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep ruby-red. Wild, musky aromas of plum, dark cherry, truffle and game, lifted by menthol and licorice.

Located near the town of Lamarque in the Haut-Medoc, the Chateau Malescasse estate is composed of about 100 acres of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot all planted on a gravely croupe or gently rolling hill.

2006 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2006 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red flagship 2006 Viña Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Médoc but produced with local grapes, 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, which achieved 13% alcohol in 2006. 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. This takes the lion's share of the 400,000 bottles the winery produces, with some 220,000 bottles filled over a period of 12 consecutive days in May 2014. ...Read More »

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."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine. 99,000 bottles were filled in ...Read More »

2005 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

99 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit in this is fascinating with plums, currants and other dark fruits. Then there is another layer of spices and chocolate. So much cassis. Full and very layered with chewy polished tannins and a long, long finish. Just starting to open. Changes all the time. Still needs a year or two but gorgeous to drink already." (10/2015) 97 points Decanter: "There have of course been great vintages since 2005, but the top examples from this year could be the greatest wines of the past two decades. The 2005 grapes were near perfect during the growing season, with flowering ...Read More »

2008 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace Top Pick!
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)" (2/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in the market and readers shouldn't miss seeking it out. This is a gorgeou ...Read More »

2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac Top Pick!
2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

97 points James Suckling: "A fabulous GPL. Perhaps better than the legendary 1982? It shows laser-guide precision on the palate with aromas of currants, cedar, mint, flowers and chocolate. Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Very ripe aromas of plum and musky brown spices; redder in character and less precise than the 2006. Then big, sweet and plump on the palate, with full, mellow flavors of red berries, tobacco and mocha, plus a light smoked meat note. Finishes with sweet tannins and lin ...Read More »

2013 Talbott "Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay (Previously $35)

90 points Vinous: "Bright yellow-gold. Aromas of ripe pear, nectarine, honey and toasty lees, with a subtle floral nuance emerging with aeration. Smooth and open-knit, offering sappy pit and orchard fruit flavors and a bracing punch of bitter citrus pith on the back half. Nicely blends opulence and vivacity and finishes with very good cling and subtle smokiness. (JR)" (8/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh and vibrant white, with lively pear, melon and green apple flavors, accented by a pithy tangerine skin edge. Ends gracefully. (JL)" (7/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "Green melon, lime peels and lime blossoms show on the ...Read More »

2000 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

94 points Wine Spectator: "The nose shows loads of plum, spice and meat aromas, as well as hints of licorice. It's full-bodied, with firm, yet velvety textured tannins. It's big and rounded. 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. Best after 2009. *Ranked #14, Top 100 Wines of 2003* (JS)" (3/2003) 91 points James Suckling: "This is very open with plum and sweet tobacco notes, and a round and juicy body. Really just starting to open up. (JS)" (5/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of th ...Read More »

2012 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

95 points James Suckling: "A rich year with low yields and a perfectly warm summer. The nose is all chalky, oyster shell and dried berries. Plenty of powerful wild red fruit. Super focused with a very crisp, linear, acid drive. Pink grapefruit to close. A great vintage for this rosé. Drink now or hold – this has the structure to support some ageing." (10/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This mature generous wine is perfectly ready to drink. Its red fruits are now balanced by a toasty character as well as ripe acidity and a touch of tannin. This is a very fine wine, balanced and rich. Drink now. *Editors' Choi ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Back In Stock!
2009 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

97 points James Suckling: "Maison Louis Latour is one of the largest holders of vineyards in the region of Corton-Charlemagne, comprising 9.46 hectares of the total of just over 52 hectares. I have always been a great fan of Latour’s Corton-Charlemagne, especially the wines of the top vintages of the1980s. I have some bottles of 1989 in my cellar that are drinking beautifully now. They are still fresh and minerally with a creamy, vanilla and light tropical fruit character. I think the 2009 is very much in the same style as 1989. I love the 2009 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne’s al ...Read More »
