Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Chiroubles 2012 Product #28292 (In Stock)
Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Chiroubles 2012 Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Chiroubles 2012

"Sexy" doesn't normally apply to Beaujolais, but it does here.  The flavors and aromas are lush, even voluptuous, with velvety ripe strawberry, blueberry and red plum fruit and accents of summer flowers and granite.  At once pretty and generous, this has mouthfilling amplitude and a silky, focused, finish with light tannin and lingering floral and fruit flavors.  A stunning bottle of Gamay to drink now and over the next 5 years.  As delicious and crowd-pleasing as top Cru Beaujolais ever gets.

Thibault Liger-belair Moulin A Vent Vieilles Vignes 2011 Product #28183 (In Stock)
Thibault Liger-belair Moulin A Vent Vieilles Vignes 2011 Thibault Liger-belair Moulin A Vent Vieilles Vignes 2011

The 90+ point reviews understate how good this wine is. Delicious and amazing at table, even with fish. Unfortunately, less than a case left.

"Here the nose is similar to that of the Rouchaux but with two small differences, which are that the fruit is ever-so-slightly riper and there is a bit more complexity. This additional depth is also reflected by the impressively well-concentrated, dusty and quite serious medium-bodied flavors that offer first-rate length. This should also reward well mid-term cellaring."Allen Meadows 90-92 points

"A bit reduced and marked by its low sulfur when tasted as a tank sample, Liger-Belair’s 2011 Moulin-a-Vent Vieilles Vignes nonetheless reveals enticing cassis and blackberry garlanded with peony and iris and laced with black tea. With polish and lift similar to that of its stable mates, this cuvees tart berry edge, seedy crunch, and pungent, piquant herb and tea inflections serve for invigoration, while marrowy depth and salinity serve for saliva-inducing savor. Expect it to perform well at least through 2018."Wine Advocate 90-91 points

Jules Desjourneys Fleurie 2007 Product #28517 (In Stock)
Jules Desjourneys Fleurie 2007 Jules Desjourneys Fleurie 2007

The very first release from what has become the most lauded estate in Beaujolais history.  This is dark and dusky and needs at least an hour in decanter now to fully unfold.

"“Duperray’s 2007 Fleurie – pure Moriers – displays game and underbrush along with narcissus-like musky florality on the nose. Smoky black tea, meat stock, and a maritime mingling of salinity and alkalinity add further complexity on a palate whose ripe fresh black fruits come off as practically an afterthought. This relatively lean but profound Fleurie of only, exactly 12% alcohol (!) needs time in the air due to its still being a bit reduced, which Duperray attributes to his intentions that customers should keep hands off these 2007s for a bit longer, but which he also thinks is accentuated by his use of a specially selected, high-elevation-grown one-Euro “precautionary” cork.”"Wine Advocate 90 points

Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008) Product #28515 (In Stock)
Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008) Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008)

Denied the AOC for a touch too much VA, this wine sizzles and sparks as the tangy flavors run across your palate.

“The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray’s 2008 Fleurie – combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers – that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, “vin de France.” Believe me, this is “vin de France” in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces “musicien francais.” The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage. This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on.” Wine Advocate 93 points
