Hillinger Secco NV Product #20714 (In Stock)
Hillinger Secco NV Hillinger Secco NV

Gently sparkling with fine fruit: that's the Hillinger Secco, the winery's light pink creation of 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This is easily the best (and most dry) release yet. Pretty in the glass and loaded with aromas and flavors of tangy strawberry, cranberry and cherry fruit.  Juicy and refreshingly dry on the tangy finish, this would be a great brunch or warm afternoon drink!

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

Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2007 Product #28610 (In Stock)
Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2007 Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2007

A fine Amarone that marries intense dried fruit to unusual freshness.  It’s got all the power and structure you’d expect from Amarone to go along with spicy dark fruits like dried cranberry, currants, cherries, and more.  But, instead of the plodding heaviness, prune-like flavors, and vinegar-like volatile acidity Amarone can fall prey to, this is fresh, clean, and very pure.  Spicy fruit, chocolaty richness, and an intense, spicy, and dry finish make this a great match for grilled pork tenderloin, baby back ribs, or even a well-marbled steak.  Compare it to wine costing $50-$75 or more – you’ll be convinced!

“This dense and concentrated Amarone offers an intense bouquet of marinated cherry, blackberry and tobacco. The palate delivers rich flavors of blackberry, prune, licorice and a touch of carob, along with round tannins and soft acidity. It has layers of flavor and nice depth. Drink through 2017.”Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2007 Product #28588 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2007 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2007

A very “Gran” Gran Reserva indeed, this is proof that Rioja’s traditional long oak aging of its top reds doesn’t need to deliver thin, wan, overoaked wines that you kind of wish had been bottled years earlier. As Wine Advocate said in reviewing the 95 point 2004 edition, “It has an irresistible bouquet that is so pure and sensual you do not know whether to drink it or stroke it.”  Aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, and black cherry take center stage with just the right accent of spice, chocolate and tobacco.  The palate is wonderfully pure and focused with more red fruit, licorice, chocolate and spice flavors that coat your palate.  The fruit turns fresh and bright – tangy raspberry, pomegranate and cranberry – on the finish where fine-grained, mellow, tannins provide support.  Focused, firm, and long, this is already delicious and will sing with anything from rich grilled fish to steak or lamb now and will grow in cellar for another 10+ years.  Fantastic stuff.

"(95% tempranillo and 5% graciano; from vines that are reportedly all over 50 years old): Deep ruby. Heady aromas of mulberry, raspberry, vanilla and exotic spices, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Supple, sweet and focused, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors and suggestions of licorice and mocha. Closes sweet and long, with no obvious tannins and an echo of dark berries."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Amalie Robert Pinot Noir Amalie's Cuvee 2007 Product #25736 (In Stock)
Amalie Robert Pinot Noir Amalie's Cuvee 2007 Amalie Robert Pinot Noir Amalie's Cuvee 2007

“Beautiful”, “lovely”, and “elegant” all appear again and again in my tasting notes here.  Opens with soaring aromatics of juicy red fruit, spice, and fresh cut fragrant flowers.  In the mouth weightless and utterly transparent with raspberry and strawberry fruits lifted by bright acidity and complicated by notes of licorice and spice. Floral and cherry flavors linger on and on.

“Limpid red. Suave, complex scents of fresh red berries, potpourri, incense and licorice. Palate-staining strawberry and raspberry flavors are lifted by notes of orange peel and white pepper, with a deeper cherry pit quality emerging on the back. Suave and accessible right now, finishing with very good cut and length.”International Wine Cellar 91 points

Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Product #28360 (In Stock)
Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml)

A classic Tokaji; medium-sweet.

The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji – a little ingenue – is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+. Wine Advocate 91 points

"Spicy aromas lead to candied citrus and clove flavors in this elegant dessert white. Moderately sweet, with bright acidity and fine length. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points

Dom Huet Vouvray Demi-sec Le Mont 2007 Product #27384 (In Stock)
Dom Huet Vouvray Demi-sec Le Mont 2007 Dom Huet Vouvray Demi-sec Le Mont 2007

A great demi-sec from Vouvray's best estate that's right in the heart of its drinking window.  Fantastic acidity and energy, juicy sweet/sour fruit, and complex notes of dried caramel and spice.

"Lush tangerine, pear and floral scents are complemented by dusty minerals, a hint of honey and green tea. Pliant, expansive citrus and candied flower flavors offer an alluring blend of richness and vivacity, with a sneaky honeycomb quality gaining strength in the glass. Fairly open-knit but focused as well; I'd hold onto this silky midweight for another few years or give it an hour in a decanter."International Wine Cellar 91 points

Conceito Vintage Port 2007 Product #23267 (In Stock)
Conceito Vintage Port 2007 Conceito Vintage Port 2007

The 2007 Port vintage is shaping up as a beauty, so it's no surprise that Rita Ferreria Marques had delivered an exciting wine. A touch more polished than the powerful 2005 Vintage, we agree with Wine Advocate - this is "a sleeper of the vintage" and great value, too!

"The purple-colored 2007 Conceito Vintage Port offers up an attractive perfume of mineral, pencil lead, blackberry, and black currants. This leads to an elegantly styled wine with excellent volume, depth, and grip. It has enough structure to evolve for a decade along with layers of savory fruit for balance. This lengthy effort will offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2027. It is a sleeper of the vintage. As an aside, Jonas Gustafson, the importer, has an outstanding Spanish portfolio so it is not a surprise to me that he has uncovered this little-known producer." Wine Advocate 90 points

Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007 Product #28791 (In Stock)
Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007 Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Guigal always releases this late, and the extra time had done nothing but good!  A big wine for big food.

"Vibrant red and dark berry scents are complemented by notes of garrigue, woodsmoke and dark chocolate. Rich and expansive but energetic as well, offering sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of licorice. Shows the heft of the vintage but comes off as lively on the long, spicy, smoky finish."International Wine Cellar 92 points

"One of the finest Chateauneufs made by Guigal, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 85% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre. Full-bodied with lots of kirsch, blackberry, raspberry, camphor and licorice, this is a classic example of both Chateauneuf du Pape and Provencal viticulture. It is aged in both tank and foudre for 3-4 years prior to being released. Drink it over the next 20 years. It is amazing that Guigal can consistently produce a wine of this majesty."Wine Advocate 93 points

Pietracupa Taurasi 2007 Product #28057 (In Stock)
Pietracupa Taurasi 2007 Pietracupa Taurasi 2007

Perhaps the best Aglianico we've ever tasted.  Big aromas of dusky cherry, green olive, fresh earth and crushed herb lead to a mouthful of rich but pure cherry, raspberry, olive and tobacco flavors.  Drives to the back of your palate in style with fantastically sophisticated tannins for a wine like this.  On the finish, juicy fruit pops back up under the tannin and lingers on and on.  A beautiful wine, but very little available.

Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er les Chenevottes 2007 Product #25218 (In Stock)
Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er les Chenevottes 2007 Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er les Chenevottes 2007

Labeled for us under the Marie Bernard name to comply with Virginia's restrictive distribution rules, this is the exact same wine sold under the Marc Morey label in France and the rest of the USA.

Marc Morey's Chenevottes is always one of the best examples of this cool, vibrant, vineyard. This 2007 is just starting to peak out of its shell and deliver fantastic cut, depth, and complexity.

"Outstanding. Notes of ripe orchard fruit, citrus, floral and brioche give way to discreetly wood-influenced medium full flavors that are round yet detailed and pack really lovely intensity on the palate staining and lingering finish that possesses a seductive mouth feel." Allen Meadows 91 points

“Intensely ripe scents of Normandy cider, peach, and decadent lily on the nose of Marc Morey 2007 Chassagne Montrachet Les Chenevottes are followed by a surprisingly chalky and dense – by no means over-ripe or too-soft – palate impression, with subtly tart and juicy apple, pineapple, and peach serving for refreshment. Faintly bitter fruit pit notes are nicely integrated to offer a bit of counterpoint, and the forward fruit and lushness of finish here will make it a crowd pleaser. It’s not as though there are no mineral aspects here: a certain sense of chalkiness is very much present.” Wine Advocate 90 points

Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er Les Vergers 2007 Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er Les Vergers 2007

Labeled for us under the Marie Bernard name to comply with Virginia's restrictive distribution rules, this is the exact same wine sold under the Marc Morey label in France and the rest of the USA.

“Outstanding. Moderate golden color. A perfumed nose of straw, citrus and white peach leads to intense, delicious and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors culminate in a long, mouth coating and impressively long finish. I quite like this as there is just a touch of backend austerity that confers a "clean" and refreshing character to the finish without falling over into severity. In sum, lovely juice with 3 to 5 years of upside potential, perhaps a bit more.” Allen Meadows 91 points

“The Marc Morey 2007 Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers smells of honeysuckle, lily, lime, and honeydew melon; comes to the palate lush in texture yet lusciously juicy; and finishes with chalk and stone undertones that offer a perfect foil to the dripping ripeness of melon and liquid flowers. Hints of lime zest and red currant in the finish offer further counterpoint and serve for a bit of invigoration. This is irresistible already, although I imagine one could hold if for a half dozen years.” Wine Advocate 91 points

Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er En Virondot 2007 Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er En Virondot 2007

Labeled for us under the Marie Bernard name to comply with Virginia's restrictive distribution rules, this is the exact same wine sold under the Marc Morey label in France and the rest of the USA.

“Outstanding. A pretty and attractively scented nose features notes of citrus, baking spice, lychee nut and rose water that precedes the nicely rich, round and relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent focus and drive on the impressively long and mineral-driven finish. After two hours in a decanter, this was a radically different, and better, wine than when it was initially opened.” Allen Meadows 91 points

“From a steep, rocky section of vines above the Caillerets, the Marc Morey 2007 Chassagne Montrachet En Virondot offers an aromatic and gustatory combination of brine and meat stock mingled with fresh lemon – along with an eventually sense of overt chalkiness – remind me of Chablis. Crystalline mineral aspects seem to shimmer through the citrus, leading to a refreshing and invigorating finish. Some tasters might find this lacking in sweetness of fruit, although there is a Chenin-like note of quince. This is one of Mollard's most interesting wines of the vintage, and should prove fascinating to follow over at least the next 5-6 years.” Wine Advocate 91 points

Carpineta Fontalpino Dofana 2007 Product #26283 (In Stock)
Carpineta Fontalpino Dofana 2007 Carpineta Fontalpino Dofana 2007

Dofana is the top wine consulting winemaker Gioia Cresti produces at her family estate just 10 miles east of Siena.  She hand harvests older vines of Sangiovese and relatively young (about 10 years) Petite Verdot from dry farmed vineyards at about 230 meters of altitude.  Both get long, slow, fermentations (20 days for the Sangiovese and 25 for the Petite Verdot) with regular punchdowns to extract color, flavor, and structure.  The intense, black, wine comes out of the fermenter and then ages for 20 months in French oak barrique before blending, bottling, and further aging in cellar.

“This is richer and has more fruit than the 2006. Super clean ripe fruit, think raspberries and currants. A very long finish on this wine. It still needs some time in the bottle but is very hard to resist now. Half Sangiovese and half Petit Verdot. Try to wait until after 2012.”  James Suckling 93 points (from April 2013)

“Fabulous on the nose, with dark fruits and smoky, meaty undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. There's a lovely richness and slight decadence to this. Equal parts Petit Verdot and Sangiovese. Best after 2012. 400 cases made.” (by James Suckling, October 2010)Wine Spectator 93 points

Broadbent Vintage Port 2007 Product #26992 (In Stock)
Broadbent Vintage Port 2007 Broadbent Vintage Port 2007

A very fine, rich and velvety port from one of the greatest vintages ever.

"The 2007 Broadbent Vintage Port is opaque purple-colored with a fragrant bouquet of earth, mineral, spice box, blackberry and licorice that jumps from the glass. On the palate it is intensely flavored, fleshy, and moderately structured with a decade of aging potential. This medium long, savory, balanced Port should drink well through 2032." Wine Advocate 90 points

"Offers raisin and dried berry notes, with hints of black pepper and spices. Full-bodied, with a fiery dried fruit aftertaste and a chewy finish. Medium sweet. Very grapey. Best after 2015. 100 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

“From contract fruit, the Marc Morey 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts is dominated by nut oils, lime, white peach, and honey, playing against chalk, salt and iodine, in a display that hints at Chablis or at Riesling. This is silken-textured, irresistibly luscious, and forward, yet not without mineral fascination, and lingeringly savory. I would expect it to perform well for 5-6 years, but can see no other good reason to wait.” Wine Advocate 92 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnets 2007 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnets 2007

While 2007 was a challenging vintage for reds, Jean Michel Guillon rose to that challenge and turned out a bevy of beautiful wines.  His 2007 1er Cru Champonnets was impressive young but now - after 5 years in a cool cellar - is unfolding into something quite beautiful.  Lovely aromas of red flowers, spice, tangy cherry, and smoke open the show.  Then it's silky and pure in the mouth with long and very fine flavors of red berries, flowers, iron, and hints of coffee, spice, and earth.  The tannins provide gentle support and the finish goes on and on.  Delicate, but very Gevrey and ready to drink.

Alta Vista Alto Malbec Mendoza 2007 Alta Vista Alto Malbec Mendoza 2007

A "wow" Malbec that's ready to enjoy tonight with steak from the grill!

"The 2007 Alto is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak. Purple/black in color with an alluring nose of sandalwood, exotic spices, black cherry, lavender, and black plum, on the palate it displays opulence, considerable power accompanied by finesse. It has enough structure to evolve for several years and will offer a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2027."Wine Advocate 92 points

"Densely packed, but ripe, lush and inviting, with unabashed licorice, plum sauce, melted fig and boysenberry fruit flavors that glide over hints of spice and mocha. The long, velvety finish pumps out the fruit in spades, with a loamy edge to keep it all honest. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2011 through 2015." Wine Spectator 94 points
