- Dom d'Eole Coteaux d'Aix En Provence Cuvee Lea 2003 Product #20380 (In Stock)
This blend of Grenache and Syrah is aged in small barrels and pushes the quality limit of wines from Provence to new heights. It combines the red fruit of Grenache, the Rhone-like spiciness of Syrah and the typical wild herb flavors of Provencal wines. Taste it blind and you’d think the 2003 Cuvee Lea was an excellent 2001 Chateauneuf or very strong 2006 Gigondas. It’s delicious right now – try it with roasted meats, rich cheeses, or stews of olive and lamb – and still has another 7+ years to go. Stunning value while it lasts.
"Richer and deeper than the 2004 version, this shows an abundance of black cherry fruit, but also layers of spicy, savory complexity. Dominated by old-vine Grenache, it could easily be mistaken for a Lirac or Châteauneuf-du-Pape."Wine Enthusiast 91 points
- Pierre Paillard Bouzy Grand Cru Brut NV Product #24253 (In Stock)
The last release of our favorite "regular" Champagne clocked in with a 92 point rating and spot on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list for 2013. This is even better! A 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all from Grand Cru vineyards. One of the best Champagne values we know.
"Vivid yellow-gold. Potent red berry, blood orange and quince on the perfumed nose, with a chalky nuance adding lift and focus. Offers sappy red fruit and citrus pith flavors that flesh out and deepen with air while picking up a sexy floral quality. Closes with building spiciness, a hint of toasty lees and excellent clarity and length."International Wine Cellar 92 points
- Bzikot Puligny Montrachet Cuvee De La Maison 2010 Product #24384 (In Stock)
Fruit for this wine came from 40 year-old vines farmed by Sylvain Bzikot in a lieu dit vineyard that abuts Henri Boillot’s famous Clos de la Mouchere and used by Dujac through 2009. Sylvain made 9 barrels of Les Petites Nosroyes in the outstanding 2010 vintage, and Doug selected the two best to be blended into this wine, the first ever 100% new oak cuvee Sylvain has made.
Not that “oak” is what you’ll smell or taste now, as the powerful, ripe, fruit has almost fully absorbed it’s wood and now allows the character of an excellent vintage and site to shine through. Over the past two years, the aromas have taken on fantastic purity, serving up scents of grilled pineapple, lemon, Granny Smith apple, hazelnut, mineral and a generous dose of fresh mint. Purity and transparency remain the key themes for the generous flavors of citrus, orchard fruits, fresh hazelnut, chervil and still more crushed mint. The texture is simply superb, with fine concentration and a smooth, glyceral, mouthfeel before loads of dusty mineral adds dimension to the long, complex, and fresh finish. Drinking beautifully right now but with 10+ years of development in its future. Very much 1er Cru in quality, making the village-level price true value for every Chardonnay fan.
- Andrea Oberto Barolo Rocche 2006 Product #24547 (In Stock)
“This is a strong set of 2006 Barolos from father and son team Andrea and Fabio Oberto. I had a chance to taste the 2006s next to the estate’s 2005s, and it is pretty clear the 2006s possess an extra dimension of generosity over their older brethren that, among other things, results in better integration of the oak.
The 2006 Barolo Vigneto Rocche is the alter-ego of the Brunate. Where the Brunate is powerful the Rocche is refined, where the Brunate is intense, the Rocche is subtle. Floral red fruits, menthol and minerals are some of the notes that emerge from this high-toned, aromatic Barolo. The aromas and flavors seem to resonate off each other like voices in a cathedral, creating a sensation of endless discovery as the wine opens up in the glass. The structure of the vintage comes through on the energetic, vibrant finish. Here, too, patience is key, but this is shaping up to be another magnificent Barolo from Oberto. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.”Wine Advocate 93+ points
"Large-scaled, chewy and sweet on the palate; bigger and deeper than the 2005, with impressive depth of fruit and sheer volume. Finishes with huge chewy tannins that saturate every millimeter of the palate, but this infant appears to have the fullness and breadth to support its structure."International Wine Cellar 92 points
- Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Product #24753 (In Stock)
Everything takes a big step up in this single vineyard wine from one of Thibert’s two best sites. The Burghound review captures this well – rich, complex, and loaded with driving minerality. Outstanding
“Moderate wood doesn't detract from the otherwise fresh, bright and expressive nose that offers up white orchard fruit aromas, subtle spice hints and floral notes that precede rich, sappy and admirably pure flavors that possess plenty of acid buffering dry extract and excellent length as well as notably more complexity. Sweet Spot/Outstanding”Allen Meadows 89-92 points
- Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er En Virondot 2007 Product #25222 (In Stock)
Labeled for us under the Marie Bernard name to comply with Virginia's restrictive distribution rules, this is the exact same wine sold under the Marc Morey label in France and the rest of the USA.
“From a steep, rocky section of vines above the Caillerets, the Marc Morey 2007 Chassagne Montrachet En Virondot offers an aromatic and gustatory combination of brine and meat stock mingled with fresh lemon – along with an eventually sense of overt chalkiness – remind me of Chablis. Crystalline mineral aspects seem to shimmer through the citrus, leading to a refreshing and invigorating finish. Some tasters might find this lacking in sweetness of fruit, although there is a Chenin-like note of quince. This is one of Mollard's most interesting wines of the vintage, and should prove fascinating to follow over at least the next 5-6 years.” Wine Advocate 91 points
“Outstanding. A pretty and attractively scented nose features notes of citrus, baking spice, lychee nut and rose water that precedes the nicely rich, round and relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent focus and drive on the impressively long and mineral-driven finish. After two hours in a decanter, this was a radically different, and better, wine than when it was initially opened.” Allen Meadows 91 points
- Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Grenouilles 2010 Product #26235 (In Stock)
"The 2010 Chablis Grenouilles, on the other hand, is much more closed down. Today it is the wine’s crystalline minerality that comes through most clearly. Hints of jasmine, green pears and apples develop in the glass, but this is a wine that needs time before its full personality begins to emerge. It is above all else a wine of finesse and, at times, an almost feminine vulnerability. Anticipated maturity: 2014."Wine Advocate 94+ points
"This is perhaps ever-so-slightly riper still than the Vaudésir, yet the expressive nose remains cool and fresh with aromas of white flowers, tidal pool and citrus nuances that merge gracefully into full-bodied and overtly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that also possess plenty of acid-buffering dry extract on the tight, intense and highly enduring finish. Excellent cellar potential."Allen Meadows 92-94 points
- Gaja Sori Tildin Langhe 2006 Product #26244 (In Stock)
In perfect condition and most still in un-opened wood six packs. A very rare deal.
“Angelo Gaja's 2006s from Barbaresco are lovely, although they require a bit of aeration to find their focus. As always Gaja blends in a small percentage of Barbera for his single-vineyard Langhe wines. The 2006 Langhe Sori Tildin opens with a gorgeous, nuanced bouquet that leads to an equally expressive core of ripe, red fruits. This medium-bodied Sori Tildin is the most focused and energetic of these wines. It offers exceptional length and a refined, polished close. As is often the case, the Sori Tildin is also the most delicate and feminine of the single-vineyard wines. This is a very strong effort even if the explosiveness of the finest vintages is missing. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.” Wine Advocate 94 points
“Good full, deep red. Sexy aromas of minerals, truffle and ineffable rose petal. Suave and lush, showing a surprisingly open-knit texture that partly masks the wine's serious underpinning of fine tannins. Very long and aromatic on the aftertaste."International Wine Cellar 94 points
