  • 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

  • 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


    “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 2011


    “There is a hint of mandarin orange to the otherwise more classic aromas of white peach, green apple, citrus and wet stone. The well-detailed and intensely stony medium weight plus flavors possess an excellent sense of underlying tension on the saline-infused, dry and well-balanced finish. I like the mid-palate concentration and while this is already delicious, this is sufficiently serious as to require 6 to 8 years of cellar time.”-92BH

  • Bouchard Pere & Fils, Pommard 2010


    Tasting note: A fresh and moderately rustic nose of red and dark berry fruit aromas is replete with various warm earth nuances that also suffuse the supple and almost surprisingly round flavors that are easy to like yet solidly complex. The mildly austere finale is well balanced and persistent and I suspect that this will in all likelihood tighten up significantly as the underlying structure is deceptively agreeable at present. A lovely villages that should drink well after 6 to 8 years of bottle age. -BH
