Ch De Villeneuve Saumur Champigny VV 2002 Product #21955 (In Stock)
Ch De Villeneuve Saumur Champigny VV 2002 Ch De Villeneuve Saumur Champigny VV 2002

Sure, most Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is built for early consumption with bistro food, but Jean-Pierre Chevallier old vines cuvee from 2002 has taken on even more complexity and charm with age. Savory aromas of roasted pepper, black olive, grilled meat and aged tobacco lead to a mellow mouthful of meaty black fruit, forest floor, and more dried tobacco.  Earthy and rich in the midpalate before bright acids and juicy roasted bell pepper notes refresh at the end.  Complex, layered, fascinating.

Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002 Product #27983 (In Stock)
Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002 Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002

Yes, it's really 11 years old, having matured perfectly in importer Olivier Daubresse's warehouse.  All Pinot Gris from the grand cru Kirchberg vineyard, this opens with wildly complex aromas of peach, apricot, baked pear and more.  Fantastic attack on the palate with dried fruit and smoky slate flavors and zingy acids under the tiny amount of residual sugar.  Long, layered, and complex, it's rich enough for big foods but finishes dry and mouthwatering for wonderful refreshment.

Vina Tondonia Rioja Reseriva 2002 Product #28006 (In Stock)
Vina Tondonia Rioja Reseriva 2002 Vina Tondonia Rioja Reseriva 2002

An old-school Rioja classic.

"The 2002 Vina Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and 10% between Mazuelo and Graciano sourced from their Tondonia vineyard located in a large meander of the Ebro River on the outskirts of Haro. It is aged for six years in used barrels, racked twice per year during its upbringing and fined with egg whites before being bottled unfiltered. It has a slightly reduced nose that benefits from air contact, with shy aromas of cherries in liqueur, tea leaves, fine leather, game, blood, spice box and cigar ash, showing some evolution. The light to medium-bodied palate is balanced, with high acidity, but perhaps a little fragile, showing the difficulties of the vintage, as 2002 was a very difficult year in Rioja. 250,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2014-2019."Wine Advocate 91 points

Dom Larue St Aubin 1er Les Combes 2002 Product #16628 (In Stock)
Dom Larue St Aubin 1er Les Combes 2002 Dom Larue St Aubin 1er Les Combes 2002

Olvier tells me that Didier wasn’t crazy about his 2002 Les Combes at first, fearing that he’d harvested too late and lost some freshness.  But a decade+ in cellar has done this nothing but good, delivering a rich, savory, white that seems more like 1er Cru Chassagne than Saint Aubin.  Aromas of toasted nut, mint, verbena, caramel and consumme show at first, but turn to more fresh cut apple and tangy pineapple with air.  The texture is very rich and creamy, but the fruit flavors remain nicely fresh over the mature notes of grilled nut, caramel, and beef stock.  Dried caramel and chervil flavors play nicely on the long finish where just the right touch of acidity keeps things pure and clean.

Dom Larue Blagny 1er Cru Sous Le Puits 2002 Product #28214 (In Stock)
Dom Larue Blagny 1er Cru Sous Le Puits 2002 Dom Larue Blagny 1er Cru Sous Le Puits 2002

Yes, I know it’s “just” Blagny.  But, if you taste this blind you’ll be more likely to name it a top premier cru from the best sites in Beaune after at least wondering if it could be a top Morey St. Denis!  Dark red fruit, fresh turned earth, a touch of coffee, and plenty of earthy spice aromas well up from the glass.  In the mouth, it’s luxuriously textured, a mouthful of crushed, red fruited, velvet with accents of spice, dark flowers, and more.  A line of iron minerality runs through the core with still firm, if nicely soften, tannins giving support and fruit and earth and floral perfume flavors pumping out on the very pretty finish.  Great showing here to drink now and for another 5+ years.
