Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Product #30107 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008

A fascinating Rioja Gran Reserva that shows both the earthy, spicy, maturity of long barrel aging and a surprising dose of fresh, juicy, fruit.  Old-vine Tempranillo and tangy Graciano aged 30 months in oak and then 3 years in bottle.  Complex aromas of coffee, vanilla, balsamic, herb and bright berry fruit.  Silky on the palate with aged wine notes of caramel, herb, and spice plus a burst of blackberry and cherry fruit.  Finishes long and spicy.

Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2008 Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2008

So reliable, with fine richness and chocolte and spice accents.

"The 2008 Reserva shows good concentration and fresh aromas of an Atlantic vintage, with quite a traditional profile displaying notes of red fruit, spices, leather and dill, and a medium-bodied palate with intense and clean flavors and a supple finish. This great Reserva wears an attractive price tag. Drink 2014-2018."Wine Advocate 91 points

Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Product #24753 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008

Everything takes a big step up in this single vineyard wine from one of Thibert’s two best sites.  The Burghound review captures this well – rich, complex, and loaded with driving minerality.  Outstanding

“Moderate wood doesn't detract from the otherwise fresh, bright and expressive nose that offers up white orchard fruit aromas, subtle spice hints and floral notes that precede rich, sappy and admirably pure flavors that possess plenty of acid buffering dry extract and excellent length as well as notably more complexity. Sweet Spot/Outstanding”Allen Meadows 89-92 points

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Product #30720 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008

"Ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet displays aromas of fresh red and dark berries, pipe tobacco and peppery spices, with subtle licorice and floral nuances adding complexity. Smoky, deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by a mineral note that adds back end nerviness. Gentle tannins shape the finish, which shows very good clarity and lingering florality."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Silvanus Limitada 2008 Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Silvanus Limitada 2008

Powerful Tempranillo from 80-year-old vines aged for 12 months in new oak.

"Smoky, exotically perfumed bouquet of dark fruit compote, cherry-vanilla and potpourri. Plush and seamless in the mouth, offering sweet blackberry and cherry flavors with complicating notes of clove and mocha. Finishes broad and very long, with an echo of smoky oak and lingering sweetness."   Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

Clerico Barolo Aeroplan Servaj 2008 Product #28934 (In Stock)
Clerico Barolo Aeroplan Servaj 2008 Clerico Barolo Aeroplan Servaj 2008

The newest Barolo from Domenico, the name means "whimsical airplane" in dialect - a tribute to Domenico's day dreaming as a child.  The wine is from Serralunga, the only Barolo he makes outside of Monforte.  Each lable in the six pack is slightly different - fitting for a wine the presents something new with every sip. Beautiful.

"From 35-year-old vines in Badarina in Serralunga. Good deep red. Medicinal aromas and flavors of dark raspberry, cherry, menthol and tobacco; very Serralunga. At once suave and penetrating, offering terrific definition and inner-mouth aromatic character. Powerful acidity is keeping this wine tightly wrapped today, but it has buns of steel to support a graceful evolution in bottle."International Wine Cellar 94(+?) points

"The 2008 Barolo Aeroplanservaj puts on a whole different act. Here, the emphasis is on elegance and finesse. The opulence and massiveness of the wine fits in with the Clerico philosophy, but unlike the Barolo Briccotto its strongest cards are played with a more subtle strategy. The aromas of black fruit and spice are wrapped a bit tighter, and the wine shows some nervous tension in the glass that needs to soften with age. I loved those delicate sprigs of mint and wild flower that somehow emerge from the inner depths of this rock-solid wine. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030."Wine Advocate 95 points

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008 Product #30475 (In Stock)
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008

A lovely, ready now, Brunello of fine weight and power.

"Freshly cut flowers, dark red fruit, licorice, spices and menthol are all layered together nicely in the glass. A wine of considerable texture and depth, the 2008 Pianrosso should drink well for at least a handful of years. There is no shortage of depth, richness or complexity in this fine effort. This is an especially concentrated style for the year, but it works. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2025."Wine Advocate 91 points

"Graphite and cedar aromas lead off in this cherry-, strawberry- and licorice-flavored red. This is firm, with quiet intensity and a dense, spice-infused finish. Best from 2015 through 2030."Wine Spectator 91 points

Vietti Barolo Brunate 2008 Product #25830 (In Stock)
Vietti Barolo Brunate 2008 Vietti Barolo Brunate 2008

1 Bottle Available

"The 2008 Barolo Brunate flows onto the palate with layers of dark fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. It is an unusually plush, generous wine for the year, endowed with tons of grace and sheer depth. This is a fabulous, layered Brunate that should drink well with a few more years in the bottle. Layers of sweet, perfumed fruit, rose petals and spices build effortlessly to the gracious, elegant finish. The Brunate is brooding and tannic, but the wine softens a bit with air. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028"Wine Advocate 93 points

Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008 Product #26601 (In Stock)
Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008 Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008

With all the fuss over the super-ripe 2009s, it's easy to miss out on the classic structure, balance, and charm of bottles like this fine Grand Cru 2008.  This year's model shows off plenty of the animal, earthy, aspect of Corton Renardes but still has a nice core of pretty Pinot fruit.  It's unusually elegant for Corton Renardes, but still packs a punch of powerful flavors and has the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and acid to develop well in cellar for a decade or more.  Or, drink it now with earthy foods and mushrooms!

Guillon Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2008 Product #23795 (In Stock)
Guillon Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2008 Guillon Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2008

A classic from the largest and best-known Grand Cru vineyard in the Cote de Nuits, the walled vineyard of Vougeot.  Unlike many wines from this famous site, Guillon’s Vougeot is fully Grand Cru in quality – dark, rich, and super, super, long.  Cellar for another 5-8 years and drink for 20.

“From 40+ year old vines and whole cluster fermentation, fermented entirely in a small 100% new wood tank. As one would reasonably expect, this is much more defined aromatically by earth tones rather than fruit. Dark berry fruit aromas introduce exceptionally rich and full-bodied flavors blessed with ample dry extract levels and an opulent mouth feel yet the hugely long and slightly woody finish tightens up considerably and is quite youthfully austere despite the sap.” Allen Meadows 91-93 points

Lamy Pillot Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2008 Product #27095 (In Stock)
Lamy Pillot Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2008 Lamy Pillot Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2008

Lamy-Pillot farms about 0.1 acre in the upper Chassagne corner of the world's greatest Chardonnay vineyard.  This luxurious, complex, and slightly mind-boggling 2008 does this site justice.  Layered aromas and flavors of pear, apple, cream, butter, and toasted hazelnut in a creamy but bright wine that finishes long, pure, and chalky.  Young (another 10 years won't hurt) but delicious.
