- Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Pere Galland 2010 Product #26485 (In Stock)
Jean Michel makes several different Gevrey village cuvves, but this one – named for the man who helped Jean Michel learn to make wine – really grabbed us in 2010. Screams “Gevrey” with its earthy red fruit and note of dusty iron ore but still soft and open enough to give early pleasure. Excellent value.
"In contrast to the relatively expressive noses of the prior three wines, this is much more serious with brooding aromas of earth, wild red berries and a whiff of humus. There is excellent energy to the detailed and lightly mineral-suffused flavors that possess good ripeness to the structural elements where the finish again displays a wonderful sense of tension and energy."Allen Meadows 88-91 points
- Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Product #26196 (In Stock)
Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery. A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!
"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points
