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

    $115.00

    “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

    $155.00

    “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

  • 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

  • Billecart-Salmon, Extra-Brut, Vintage 2004

    $120.00

    “Toasted brioche and pastry cream notes are rich and smoky in this elegant Champagne, riding the refined mousse with flavors of white peach and candied kumquat. The spiced finish is ripe and balanced. Drink now through 2025.Champagne, S. A. Mareuil-sur-Ay”-92WS

  • Bonneau du Martray, Corton-Charlemagne, Grand Cru 2012

    $225.00

    “The nose is presently slightly reduced which is not unusual just after the bottling. My sense is that it won’t last as it seems clear that the underlying fruit is ripe. There is excellent density and plenty of punch to the big-bodied and voluminous flavors that enjoy ample mid-palate concentration before culminating in an agreeably dry, clean and impressively long, indeed even explosive finish.” -93 BH

  • Bouchard Pere & Fils, Pommard, 1er Cru 2011

    $95.00

    A lean, elegant style, exhibiting cherry, earth and light herbal notes on a taut frame. Shows ample fruit, but the finish is still a little tight. -WS

  • Cardinale, Napa, Proprietary Red Wine 2013

    $340.00

    “A brilliant wine from winemaker Chris Carpenter and the Kendall-Jackson family, this blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot, mostly coming from mountain vineyards owned by the Jackson family, is fabulous. The 2013 Cardinale Proprietary Red Wine is dense purple-colored, a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis as well as licorice, blackberry and espresso are all present in this full-bodied, rather sublime and intense Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 25 or more years. This was aged in about 91% new French oak for 18-20 months prior to bottling. It is certainly one of the finest Cardinales I have tasted in my experience.” -96 WA

  • Cayuse, God Only Knows, Grenache 2013

    $182.00

    “Grenache seemed to handle the heat nicely in 2013 and the 2013 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard offers a gorgeous, rich, almost masculine style (especially when it’s tasted next to the No Girls Grenache) in its dark fruits, crushed herbs, mineral and leather scented profile. Even showing a touch of game with time in the glass, this beauty has fine tannin, plenty of fruit and a great finish, all suggesting it will drink nicely for another decade.” -94 RP
