Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005 Product #27478 (In Stock)
Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005 Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005

Dave McIntyre recommends this elegant, mature Sangiovese, and so do we!

"This is very Old World in style: earthy, with sour cherry and cocoa notes typical of a sangiovese that picks up balsamic notes from aging in large casks. It reminds me of a Brunello, at a fraction of the price, and shows how well a “simple” Tuscan sangiovese can age. We don’t have to worry about cellaring it; that’s already been done for us. Alcohol content: 13 percent."  <b>**1/2 The Washington  Post</b>

"The 2005 Sangiovese Genius Loci is remarkably elegant and polished; qualities that were hard to come by in this challenging vintage. The plush, dark red fruit coats the palate all the way through to the long, refined finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015." Wine Advocate 90 points

This wine is made in the traditional manner, by aging for 3 years in small chestnut barrels in the eaves of the home of the winemaker. It offers flavors of baking spices, maple syrup, caramel and toffee. It is slightly sweet and is often served with biscotti as a simple dessert. And, with nearly 9 years of aging, it's drinking just perfectly right now!

Dom Larue Saint-aubin Vieilles Vignes 2005 Product #28212 (In Stock)
Dom Larue Saint-aubin Vieilles Vignes 2005 Dom Larue Saint-aubin Vieilles Vignes 2005

Didier’s old-vine village cuvee surprised even a fan like me – it’s very classy and wildly complex, changing constantly as your sit with the glass.  Generous aromas feature brown butter, burre blanc, crushed mint, and a savory note that reminds one of lobster stock.  The flavors follow the nose and while there’s plenty of ripe orchard and stone fruit here, the overall impact is more savory than sweet.  The fruit picks up a red tinge – cherry? – with air to go with dashes of fresh almond, marzipan, dried honey, and a saline note that reminds you of the sea.  Lovely, mouthwatering, and brilliant with lobster or shellfish of any kind!

Dom Larue Saint-aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2005 Product #28145 (In Stock)
Dom Larue Saint-aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2005 Dom Larue Saint-aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2005

Always a favorite cuvee here, the 2005 is simply outstanding.  Standing at the foot of Le Montrachet, you can just see the St. Aubin 1er Cru vineyard En Remilly peaking up over the hill.  The Larue’s planted their one acre plot at 300 meters elevation in 1989, and these tightly packed, vines always give fruit of fine concentration.

In 2005, the challenge for white wine makers was to get enough acidity and minerality to go with their perfectly ripe fruit, a challenge that was nicely met here.  Aromas and flavors of dried honey, caramel, passion fruit, mint, ripe pear and more weave in and out of this rich but very fresh wine.  Iodine, stony mineral, and mouthwatering acidity leave you looking for something fresh to eat as the caramelized pear and passion fruit flavors keep pumping out on a finish that just won’t quit.

Eric Rodez Ambonnay Grand Cru Millesime 2005 Product #27900 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Grand Cru Millesime 2005 Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Grand Cru Millesime 2005

Once again, just stunning value here for Grand Cru vintage Champagne. A blend of 55 % Pinot Noir and 45 % Chardonnay from the middle of the Grand Cru hillside, it's beautiful just to look at with a light golden color and fine bubbles.  Aromas of fresh hay, yeast, pear, tarragon, and sweet orange peel lead to a full-bodied, richly textured, mouthful of pear, blood orange, pastry, smoke, earth, and toast flavors.  The texture here is fantastic, at once creamy and fresh with bright citrusy acids lifting the toast, smoke and fruit notes and a melange of clove, honey, and smoke flavors lingering on the long, refreshing, finish.  Already drinking beautifully, this will actually get better over the next two or three years and hold beyond that.  Fantastic wine, amazing value.
