- 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
- Brovia Barolo "Garblet Sue" 2008 Product #26531 (In Stock)
Garblet Sue is the name of a small slice of the famous Bricco Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione. It always gives classically structured Barolo with firm tannins, but this 2008 adds more roundness and fruit than you normally find here. Still quite tight, but it's going to be a stunner!
“Brovia’s 2008 Barolo Garblet Sue’ bursts from the glass with a heady array of black fruit, smoke, incense and licorice. The Garblet Sue’, from the Bricco Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione, is usually a much more linear, tense Barolo, but in 2008 the wine has gorgeous inner perfume allied to a level of pure juiciness that rounds out some of the rough edges that are at times present in this bottling. A huge finish laced with iron, asphalt and crushed rocks rounds things out in style. This is a super-classic Barolo from Brovia. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.”Wine Advocate 96 points
