Regis Bouvier Bourgogne Rouge Montre Cul 2014 Regis Bouvier Bourgogne Rouge Montre Cul 2014

A Kermit Lynch Burgundy is going to be natural, pure and compelling - which is what we have here. From 45 year-old vines growing inside the Dijon city limits, this is very Cote de Nuits with pretty red griotte cherry fruit, a touch of earth and blossom, and sneaky length on the palate and the lightly tannic finish.  Very pure and delicious with structure perfect for duck or pate.

Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2015 Product #32767 (In Stock)
Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2015 Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2015

Burgundy's 2015 vintage gave us silky, supple, reds with an extra jolt or rich, ripe, fruit and plenty of classic Burgundy terroir.  Here's a great example from 4.5 acres mainly in and near Vosne-Romanee. Ripe, hand-harvested, fruit is 100% destemmed, fermented in tank and then aged in twice-used French oak.  There's a very pretty perfume of ripe red cherry, raspberry, violets and a hint of something earthy - or "animal" as the winemaker says.  On the palate it's very pure and fresh and transparent with a silky feel to the generous cherry/raspberry fruit.  Stony minerality and fine tannins provide support to this very pretty, very delicious, Pinot Noir.  Drink now - 2020 or so.

Guillon Cotes De Nuits Villages Queues De Hareng 2014 Product #31356 (In Stock)
Guillon Cotes De Nuits Villages Queues De Hareng 2014 Guillon Cotes De Nuits Villages Queues De Hareng 2014

Just Jean-Michel’s fourth vintage from this fine vineyard located a touch south of Nuits Saint Georges, and easily the very best yet.  Oodles of raspberry, coffee, and red currant aromas and flavors and a silky, sophisticated, texture.  It’s rare to see a wine from a more “humble” site like this have the stuffing to benefit from 100% new oak, but the 2014 handles it with ease.  Delicious now and able to develop through 2024+.  Outstanding value here.

Outstanding Top Value "A discreet touch of wood sets off the ripe, fresh and complex nose that consists of plum, earth, violet and plenty of earth character. There is terrific intensity to the detailed, sleek and delineated middle weight flavors that are also endowed with relatively fine-grained tannins that shape the lingering finish that evidences a hint of bitter cherry. This is an excellent example of the appellation and worth your interest."Allen Meadows 89-91 points

Guillon Fixin Hauts Crais 2014 Product #31357 (In Stock)
Guillon Fixin Hauts Crais 2014 Guillon Fixin Hauts Crais 2014

Jean-Michel's very first vintage in this vineyard perched near the top of the hill overlooking the village of Fixin.  A strict green harvest brought yields down to 30 hl/ha (very low in this "value" village) to give the wine the kind of concentration and body Jean-Michel is known for.  Aging in 100% new French oak provided roundness, but the oak flavors are buried in the fresh cherry/berry fruit and give just the nicest touch of spice.  Round and full of fruit and softly supple on  the juicy finish, this is an outstanding Burgundy to enjoy young and will improve for 5+ years.

"A discreet application of wood serves as a backdrop for the pretty plum, violet, earth and slightly gamy aromas. Here too there is a relatively sleek mouth feel to the vibrant and overtly stony middle weight flavors that display a mild touch of austerity on the balanced and refreshing finish."Allen Meadows 87-90 points

Dom Mongeard Mugneret Vosne Romanee 2014 Product #31595 (In Stock)
Dom Mongeard Mugneret Vosne Romanee 2014 Dom Mongeard Mugneret Vosne Romanee 2014

There's a lot of deliciousness here and a fine velvet texture.

"The 2014 Vosne-Romanée Village comes from vines in the lieu-dit Violette and Aux Réas that are sometimes bottled separately. It has a simple, clean redcurrant and strawberry scented bouquet that would benefit from a little more intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry. I appreciate the fineness of the tannin here and the tension displayed towards the finish, a village cru that comes recommended."Wine Advocate 89 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2014 Product #31360 (In Stock)
Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2014 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2014

Co-winemaker Alexis Guillon's cuvee is always a bit more elegant than the Domaine's other Village wines, but still has the concentration and depth that only comes from 60+ year-old vines. This is the best vintage for this wine I can recall and the best rating from Burghound, too.  Another outstanding value in classic Gevrey Chambertin.  Best from 2019 - 2029.

Outstanding Top Value " A moderately wooded nose also exhibits a touch of menthol on the classic Gevrey aromas of earth, underbrush, game and cool dark berry fruit. There is excellent mid-palate density to the intense, robust and muscular flavors that coat the palate on the slightly rustic and impressively long finish. Worth considering."Allen Meadows 89-91 points

Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin VV 2013 Product #30895 (In Stock)
Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin VV 2013 Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin VV 2013

One of the most satisfying village-level Gevrey-Chambertin we've had in a while from a tiny producer seldom seen outside of France.  Here the fruit comes from 40 year-old vines growing in 10+ small slices of vineyard around the village of Gevrey. One of those vineyards provides a tie to the Magnien's Burgundy history - the vines in Empointures used for this wine were cuttings taken from vines in 1er Cru Cazetierers planted in 1915!

This already sports a pretty perfume of griotte cherry and raspberry puree with iron shavings and fresh earth.  Plenty of muscular power on the palate, but also superb purity and elegance, with a core of ripe berry fruit, iron, earth and spice.  Lovely texture - iron fist in a silk glove - with outstanding length on the palate and fruit, mineral, and cut flower finish.  A fantastic wine, but very limited.

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2012 Product #28844 (In Stock)
Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2012 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee Alexis 2012

Co-winemaker Alexis Guillon's cuvee is always a bit more elegant than the Domaine's other Village wines, but still has the concentration and depth that only comes from 60+ year-old vines. This is the best vintage for this wine I can recall and the Burghound score is too low.  An outstanding value for now - 2022.

"While the wood is not invisible there is better aromatic complexity present on the dark currant, earth, sauvage and plum suffused nose. There is fine detail to the mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess excellent phenolic maturity to the supporting tannic spine, all wrapped in a robust, powerful and impressively long finish. I like the concentration and if this can add a bit more length it should merit the top of my projected range."Allen Meadows 88-91 points

Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2012 Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2012

From 50-90 year-old vines, this is always the most powerful and complex of Jean-Michel's Village level wines.  The essence of Gevrey-Chambertin here and the structure and balance to develop beautifully in cellar.

"Outstanding Top Value. Here the wood treatment is much more discreet with its cool and pure nose of wild and mixed dark berries, pungent earth and plenty of sauvage character. There is excellent intensity and drive to the overtly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess excellent volume and phenolic maturity before concluding in a saline, long and ever-so-mildly austere finish. This is well worth considering."Allen Meadows 89-91 points

Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes 2013 Product #30035 (In Stock)
Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes 2013 Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes 2013

Always one of Jean-Michel’s – and importer Olivier Daubresse’s! – favorite cuvees, I really cannot imagine how you wouldn’t guess very good 1er cru when tasting this blind.  It’s a powerful wine that can be enjoyed young for the rich, almost dense, fruit and will add complex earthy/iron ore notes as it matures.  Drink young with air and food or enjoy from 2023-2033 to see all this has to offer.  Perhaps the most outstanding value of this offering.

"Outstanding Top Value. In contrast to the Cuvée Galland this displays buckets of classic Gevrey character with its beautifully complex aromas of game, underbrush, pungent earth and that telltale sauvage quality on the assorted dark berry fruit scents. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the middle weight plus flavors that possess equally good complexity on the extract-rich, powerful and beautifully well-balanced finish. This is an old school Gevrey villages that will require plenty of patience but if you have it then this is a terrific choice. Highly recommended for the patient." Allen Meadows 89-92 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Vielles Vignes 2014 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin Vielles Vignes 2014

Always one of Jean-Michel’s – and importer Olivier Daubresse’s! – favorite cuvees, I really cannot imagine how you wouldn’t guess very good 1er cru when tasting this blind.  It’s a powerful wine that can be aprecied now for the dense fruit and palate-coating richness but will need time to mellow and open to show earthy, iron ore, minerality.  Hold it until 2024 and enjoy through 2034 and longer.

Outstanding Top Value "I would describe this as moderately wooded as well with its notes of menthol and dense fruited nose of plum, dark berries, spice and abundant earth scents. There is outstanding richness and concentration to the notably powerful and serious middle weight plus flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the rustic finale. This old school effort won't win any awards for refinement but it is a first-rate Gevrey villages that really saturates the palate with dry extract. Highly recommended provided that you have the patience to give it at least 6 to 8 years of cellaring."Allen Meadows 89-92 points

Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Pere Galland 2015 Product #32512 (In Stock)
Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Pere Galland 2015 Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Pere Galland 2015

Jean Michel makes several different Gevrey village cuvves, but this one – named for Rene Galland, the man who helped him learn to make wine – shines especially brightly in 2015.  One swirl of the glass and you know you're about to drink a Domaine Guillon red Burgundy from a great vintage.  Smoke, earth, spice, and iron aromas envelop the dark and rich fruit.  Then, on the palate, there's the muscularity Gevrey is supposed to give with a level of concentration, class and drive that Village-level Gevrey almost never attains.  For all the ripeness of the raspberry and dark cherry fruit, this shows amazing finesse and purity through the long, spicy, finish.  Decant now, better from 2020, great through 2030 and beyond.

"A pungent nose displays notes of reduction and wood toast. By contrast there is fine freshness to the super-rich and highly seductive medium weight flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the balanced and notably more complex finale. This is a big villages that will need a few years of cellar time first."Allen Meadows 89-91 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2014 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2014

As it has for the past few years, Champeaux stands out among Guillon's 2014 1er Cru wines for its purity of fruit and beautiful texture.  Much more open and accessible than Champonnets today, Champeax impresses with its blend of ripe dark fruit, classic Gevrey earth and iron-ore, and hints of floral elegance.  Approachable now, better from 2021 - 2029+.

Outstanding "A cool, pure and restrained nose speaks of red currant, plum, earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is lovely detail to the sleek and beautifully refined middle weight flavors that retain a fine sense of delineation before terminating in a balanced, classy and mineral-inflected finish. Textbook Champeaux."Allen Meadows 91-93 points

Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetiers 2013 Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetiers 2013

Gevrey’s 1er Cru Clos St Jacques vineyard probably should have been named a Grand Cru when titles were handed out in the 1930s.  This vineyard, Cazetiers, is, as  Clive Coates explains, “almost as well exposed as Clos St Jacques and can closely approach it” in quality.  Dom Henri Magnien owns about 4 acres here, making it their single largest vineyard holding and one of their most important.

In their outstanding 2013 release, you'll find black cherry and raspberry fruit with accents if iron ore, smoke, and spice. The wine glides across your palate like silk before fine tannins come up for grip and shape.  Long and lovely - decant or hold through 2028.  Very highly recommended!

Guillon Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru La Riotte 2015 Guillon Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru La Riotte 2015

Always the easiest to taste young of Jean-Michel's 1er Crus, the 2015 Morey Saint Denis marries lovely depth and richness to, once again, a fanstically silky, pure, texture.  The 100% new oak Burghound comments on is already being absorbed into the wine with delights as much for it's velvety pure texture as it does for the profound fruit and sweet spice.  If you normally like this, buy it.  If you aren't already a fan, this will make you one.  Best from 2020 - 2035.

"Ample wood fights somewhat with the otherwise wonderfully fresh and bright red cherry, floral and softly earth-scented aromas. There is both good vibrancy and refinement to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess a lovely mouth feel though the wood is very much present on the finish. The underlying material is probably sufficient to eat the wood and my predicted range assumes that it will."Allen Meadows 90-92 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnets 2015 Product #32514 (In Stock)
Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnets 2015 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnets 2015

While Champonnets isn't Guillon's "best" wine (because there's a reason the Grand Crus are "Grand"!), it does brilliantly represent what this estate is all about.  Despite perching on the same hill as Grand Cru Ruchottes-Chambertin, the vineyard's northeastern exposure gives most growers lighter, less robust, wines than other 1ers.  Jean-Michel farms this site harder than any other grower, though, making dozens of pruning, trimming, thinning, and de-leafing passes throughout the season to nurture his small yields of berries to perfect ripeness. This is outstanding Gevrey that will shine brightest after 2023.

"Outstanding. A toasty nose offers up notes of dark currant, earth, game and a hint of forest floor. There is excellent richness to the round, velvety and muscular flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering and firm finish. This needs a few years to develop better depth but the material is good enough that more complexity should develop."Allen Meadows 90-92 points

Dom JJ Confuron Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Chaboeufs 2012 Dom JJ Confuron Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Chaboeufs 2012

A classic; rich and powerful.  Best from 2017-2027.

“Slightly reduced aromas of roasted black raspberry, licorice and violet. A sweet, fine-grained fruit bomb in the mouth, offering more definition and verve than the Boudots to its blackberry and cassis flavors. Creamy-sweet but with nicely integrated acidity and ripe, fine-grained tannins giving the wine shape and energy. This wine was made entirely from vines planted in 1981 as the Meuniers pulled up the oldest vines for replanting before the 2012 season.” International Wine Cellar 91-93 points

“The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Chaboeufs has a very well defined, slightly metallic bouquet that is vigorous and focused. The palate is very silky and more refined than the Les Boudots. Despite some reduction this seems to have more class and finesse, serving as a decent Nuits Saint Georges without the bells and whistles.” Wine Advocate 92-94 points

“The superb Les Chaboeufs 1er Cru exhibits a dark red fruit nose with hints of herbs and loam. It boasts outstanding floral and dark berry fruit flavor and has an elegant mouth feel with, soft round tannins and a long finish. Drink in 2017 for an additional 10 years minimum.”i-Wine Review 93 points

Guillon Marsannay Clos Des Portes 2014 1.5l Guillon Marsannay Clos Des Portes 2014 1.5l

A stunning bottle of handcrafted red Burgundy that will delight fans of ripe Russian River or warm vintage Willamette Valley Pinot today and satisfy the most demanding Burgundy fan for years to come.  Jean Michel Guillon purchased this small vineyard about 10 years ago and his hard work has transformed its 30-40 year-old vines into something very special indeed.  He harvests less than 30 hectoliters per hectare of perfectly ripe fruit here – much lower yields than are allowed in Grand Cru vineyards!  And, he treats it like “Grand Cru” wine, too, aging it for 16 months in all new Bertomieu French oak barrels.  Decant it now or hold through 2024.

"Mild reduction pushes what appears to be ripe fruit to the background. Otherwise there is good verve to the racy, intense and well-delineated flavors that don't possess the same mid-palate concentration but are persistent and well-balanced. This could also be approached young if desired."Allen Meadows 87-89 points

Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2014 Guillon Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2014

With the Gevrey Vieilles Vignes, this is one of the most outstanding values in this offering, delivering Grand Cru level ripeness, concentration, and complexity at a price well under many very good 1er Crus. As with the Grand Crus, Jean-Michel ferments Petite Chapelle in a brand-new, open-top, wood fermenter before aging it in the best French oak money can buy. You can begin to peak in on its development in 2021 if you like, but put some away to drink from 2024 to whenever.

Outstanding "Here too there is moderate but not dominant wood setting off the more elegant and airy red and dark pinot aromas that exhibit background nuances of earth, floral and spice. There is a notably finer mouth feel to the even more mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that retain a lovely sense of delineation on the punchy, focused and well-balanced finale."Allen Meadows 91-93 points
