  • Domaine Louis Boillot & Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru, Champonnet 2008


    “High-toned kirsch mingles with ripe fresh cherry, chalk dust, and citrus oil on the nose of Boillot’s 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champonnet, then inform a plate of striking brightness, energy, and irresistible juiciness. The tart exuberance of this Gevrey as well as its surprisingly silken feel belie the relatively young vines that birthed it; and there is an admirable sense of transparency here to mineral nuance. I would anticipate at least a decade’s worth of satisfaction.” (91-92) WA

  • Dal Forno Romano, Valpolicella Superiore 2009


    “Built like a tank, the 2009 Valpolicella Superiore Monte Lodoletta is a masterful achievement. This wine shows so beautifully, especially in a warm but balanced vintage like 2009. The fruit is expressive and articulate with deep layers of blackberry preserves, dried cherry, dark chocolate, espresso bean, mesquite smoke and soy sauce. The mouthfeel is super rich and concentrated as the Dal Forno signature style would dictate. The tannic bite is still strong and this wine needs a few more years to stretch out its muscular build. I’d suggest drinking it after 2018.” -94WA

  • Achaval-Ferrer, Finca Mirador, Mendoza, Malbec 2011


    “This pure, racy red exhibits a dark side, with layers of spice, graphite and maduro tobacco to the crushed raspberry, blackberry and concentrated cassis fruit.  Best from 2015-2022.” -96 WS

  • Albert Bichot, Domaine du Clos Frantin, Vosne-Romanee, Les Malconsorts 1er Cru 2012

    $195.00 $165.00

    “Happily here there is no reduction present on the ultra-spicy and floral nose where soft wood frames the ripe aromas of various dark berries and plum scents. There is excellent concentration to the robust and overtly muscular medium weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract on the structured and very firm but not hard finish that displays outstanding length on the mineral-driven backend. This robust effort is borderline strict at present and will require plenty of age to soften the tannins. Patience required.”-93BH

  • Almaviva, Puente Alto, Cabernet Blend 2009


    “Classically built, with a compact and fine-tuned frame giving way to rich cassis, black cherry reduction, fig paste, spice box and licorice notes woven with fine tannins, juicy acidity and a firm, minerally spine. The finish reverberates the focused flavors, but should expand with mid-term cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2020. 12,500 cases made. –NW”-96WS

  • Antica Terra, Ceras, Pinot Noir 2012


    “The 2012 Pinot Noir Ceras is Maggie Harrison’s mineral take of Pinot Noir (she actually uses the word “aerial” in her technical sheet).  It does indeed offer an ethereal bouquet that is just so succinct: a carapace of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit interspersed with cold granite, walnut and smoke scents that are beautifully defined.  The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins, a lot of salinity and superb tension all the way through to the finish.  What a wonderful Pinot Noir – the kind of wine I can guarantee you will finish to the final drop.” -94 RP Drink 2015-2023
