Up To 60% Off On Collectible Burgundies From A Premier Estate - 01/04/2018 - White Burgundy

The biggest Burgundy deal of 2017 is back in 2018! We’ve recently taken in a shipment from Bruno Colin, one of the leading and most exciting producers in Burgundy today. The arrival of such an impressive set of wines would be reason for fanfare in and of itself, but making things all the more exciting are the deep discounts. Ranging from 43 to 63% off, these are unparalleled values that belong in any Burgundy collector’s cellar. When we offered the last set of discounted wines from Bruno Colin they sold in a flash and we fully expect the same here. To put these values into context, the 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Truffière" comes from one of the most coveted sites in all of Burgundy and usually commands prices over and above $100, but here we have it for a fraction of that. Also of note, is the 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Maltroie,” which hails from one of the most impressive white Burgundy vintages of over a decade. The truth is all the wines in this parcel are absolute steals and will reward for many years to come.

A third generation winemaker, Bruno Colin is obsessed with crafting wines that are true to their locale. The resulting wines are absolutely stirring with beautiful balance, enticing aromatics, and a nuanced complexity. When the importer approached us with this amazing deal, we knew we had to take every bottle. Premier Cru White Burgundies of this quality rarely come around at a discount, much less these prices. These are wines that shouldn't be missed as the price to play in Chardonnay this good is rarely so reasonable. So if you want in on these bargains, we can’t stress enough- don’t delay!

2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Santenay Rouge Vieilles Vignes (Elsewhere $40) ($14.99)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: " Here the expressive nose is even earthier with fresh and sauvage notes of various dark berries. The round, supple and forward medium weight flavors possess a relatively soft mid-palate though there is good verve and detail on the bright, clean and once again mildly austere finale. Drink: 2018+" (04/2015)

Wine Spectator: "Firm and succulent, this red reveals wild cherry, currant, licorice and underbrush flavors, staying tight on the finish, with moderate length. (BS, Web-2016)"

2014 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Maltroie" (Elsewhere $80) ($34.99)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A vibrant and focused white, with lemon, apple and pear flavors dovetailing with the firm structure. Expands nicely on the finish, where a minerally accent emerges. (BS)" (05/2017)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Generous wood fights and very firm reduction renders the pungent nose impossible to read. There is good intensity to the slightly less voluminous and concentrated medium weight flavors that exhibit good precision on the ever-so-mildly austere finale that offers very solid depth and persistence." (06/2016)

Vinous: "Aromas of pear and menthol show limited nuance. A bit larger-scaled, richer and spicier than the Vergers and Chenevottes but still a wine of moderate ripeness. Savory menthol and mint notes lead to a fairly bracing, persistent finish. (ST)" (09/2016)

After a good amount of breathing time, the precision and power of this beauty were undeniable. A rich satisfying phenolic texture takes subtle flavors of pear, stone fruit, toast and white florals across the palate to an electrifying finish (2014s are known for that). Brimming with minerality. This is a steal for under $35.

2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Maltroie" (Elsewhere $80) ($34.99)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Maltroie comes from a 0.40 hectare parcel close to the cuverie in the "Froncement" lieu-dit. The nose is the most leesy at the moment, with touches of almond and coconut on the nose, later orange cordial. The palate is well balanced with quite a 'fat' mid-palate, but fine definition and sense of tension toward the tangy marmalade-tinged finish. Very fine. (NM)" (12/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator: "A buttery style, sporting lime, apple and baking spice flavors, this is slim and focused. A mineral element emerges on the piquant, mouthwatering finish, which is very racy. (BS, Web-2016)"

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An attractively cool and pure nose features notes of citrus, floral, apple and an all but invisible application of wood. There is fine volume to the concentrated and seductively textured medium weight flavors that possess slightly better depth and length on the presently firm finale. This is a lovely and ageworthy effort that is worth considering. *Outstanding*" (06/2015)

2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Vergers" (Previously $100) ($36.99)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers comes from a 0.33 hectare parcel and sees around 25% new oak. It has an attractive brioche and hot buttered toast bouquet that is well defined and focused. The palate is well balanced, more understated than some of Colins other premier crus, but is focused and elegant with blood orange and tangerine lingering on the aftertaste. Drink this over the next decade. (NM)" (12/2014)

90 points Vinous: "Subtle, pure, high-pitched aromas of peach, fresh apricot and white flowers. Not particularly fleshy but a nicely taut, linear midweight with good density to its flavors of salty minerals and white flowers. Still quite bracing on the back end and in need of some patience. (ST)" (09/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Firm, taut and linear, with flavors of white peach, apple, lemon and spice fused to the frame. The finish is a bit puckering now, but long, with a hint of stone. Be patient. (BS, Web-2016)"

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " Here too there is a touch of matchstick character though not so much that it diminishes the appeal of the citrus blossom, tea and lemongrass suffused nose. The slightly denser flavors possess a fleshy mouth feel and fine richness and I like the sense of vibrancy displayed by the detailed and solidly lingering finish. Note that while this refreshing effort should reward a few years of bottle age it should also be enjoyable young if desired. *Outstanding*" (06/2015)

2014 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "En Rémilly" (Previously $70) ($39.99)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again reduction dominates the fruit to the point that the nose is impossible to fairly assess. Otherwise there is really lovely energy to the beautifully well-detailed and punchy mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess really lovely focus on the classy and lingering finale. A moderate amount of patience will be required to allow more overall depth to develop. *Outstanding*" (06/2016)

2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Truffière" (Previously $90) ($49.99)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A reticent but wonderfully complex nose is comprised by distinctly cool acacia blossom, white peach, pear and green apple hints. There is lovely sense of underlying tension to the elegantly textured and notably mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that serves to coat the palate as well as buffer the moderately firm acidity supporting the saline, long and well-balanced finale. Good juice. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (06/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Petrol and baking spice aromas lead off, followed by flavors of spiced apple and lemon. Intense, with tannins on the finish giving this white a tactile impression. (BS)" (06/2016)

91 points Vinous: "Restrained aromas of orchard fruits, orange peel, acacia blossom and stone. Suppler than the Garenne, showing a hint of pineapple, but also quite dry and tight. Will this expand in the bottle? An impression of saline extract suggests that it will. (ST) 91+" (09/2015)
