Warre's Vintage 1997 Product #29344 (In Stock)
Warre's Vintage 1997 Warre's Vintage 1997

"Dark ruby. Subtle and rich aromas of prune, spice, juniper berry and leaves. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with big round tannins. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Still very young. It's lost its youthful toughness, but give it a little more time. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010."Wine Spectator 94 points

Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years Product #32123 (In Stock)
Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years

One of the greatest "wood" Sherry's we've ever tasted, this is what happens when the flor on Amontillado dies early and lets the wine darken to Oloroso levels - and then gets aged for 30 years in American oak cask.  A lovely touch of Amontillado white fruit with the caramel and toasted nut richness of Oloroso sherries elevated by a lift of Fino-like acidity and salty mineral. Simply stunning and quite rare.

"Riveting, with dried orange peel, powdered clove, Brazil nut, juniper and green tea notes attached to a live wire of acidity. The long, focused finish leaves a mouthwatering echo."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Millesime 2006 Product #31390 (In Stock)
Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Millesime 2006 Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Millesime 2006

Everyone agrees on this one - as always one of the great wines of Ambonnay.

"Another standout, the 2006 Brut Millesime is stellar. This is an especially broad, creamy Champagne built on textural richness. Lemon oil, white flowers, smoke, almonds and baked apple are some of the signatures. Rich and resonant on the palate, the 2006 will drink beautifully for another decade or so, even if it could benefit from a little more time in bottle. Egly's 2006 is a pure pleasure to taste today."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

"The 2006 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is a really rich and intense, yet also a pure and fresh cuvée based on 60/70% barrel-fermented Pinot Noir and 30/40% barrel-fermented Chardonnay. It is a full-bodied, concentrated and extremely well-structured cuvée with a grippy, long and persistent finish. The dosage is two grams per liter. There are lovely fresh berry flavors on the nose."Wine Advocate 94 points

"Ripe fruit and floral notes herald this mouthwatering Champagne, with nectarine, gingersnap biscuit, orchard blossom and anise notes carried through the fine, chalky mousse. Well-knit and vibrant, featuring a long finish of smoke and spice."Wine Spectator 94 points

Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2006 Product #30313 (In Stock)
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2006 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2006

Named for Champagne's most famous widow - and inventor of everything from Vintage Champagne to riddling racks - this is very grand indeed.  In 2006, it's a blend of 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay aged 8 years on the lees in bottle before disgorgement in early 2015.  A powerful, rich, wine with loads of potential in front of it.

"Bright and graceful, this seamlessly knits a subtle streak of smoke-tinged minerality with flavors of almond financier, poached pear, candied kumquat and crème de cassis, focused by vibrant acidity and a refined, creamy mousse. Disgorged January 2014. Drink now through 2030."Wine Spectator 94 points

En Numeros Vermells Classic Priorat Negre 1.5l 2014 Product #31055 (In Stock)

Silvia Puig made just 827 bottles of our favorite all-around Priorat red in the cool, fresh, 2014 vintage.  It's a blend of 65% Garnatxa, 30% Syrah, and 5% Carinyena fermented in open-top 300 liter and 500 liter French oak and then aged 13 months in those same barrels (with the tops back on).  The vintage gives this more energy and zip than previous releases, but there's no shortage of pure Priorat power.

Big, classically Priorat, aromas of spice, chocolate, blackberry, raspberry and baked plum really jump from the glass.  In the mouth it's rich and ripe with oodles of blue-black fruit, more chocolate and spice, and accents of tangy blueberry, blood orange and pomegranate.  Chewy and dense right on through the very long finish with notes of blackberry, plum, and flambéed cherries lingering on and on.  This will drink young and repay 10-15 years in cellar.

Dom Perignon Vintage 2006 Product #31068 (In Stock)
Dom Perignon Vintage 2006 Dom Perignon Vintage 2006

"The 2006 Dom Pérignon comes from a very rich vintage with an early ripeness that brought a lot of aromatic maturity. The white-golden prestige cuvée contains a bit more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir and opens with a deep and seductive, pretty accessible nose with intense yet fresh fruit aromas of pineapples, with peaches and tangerines. Lively and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, unusually aromatic and fruity DP with a long and tension-filled expression."Wine Advocate 96 points

Maynard's Port Colheita 1950 Product #30547 (In Stock)
Maynard's Port Colheita 1950 Maynard's Port Colheita 1950

Sometimes called, “The Ladies’ Vintage,” 1950 gave fresh, elegant, and very pure wines and was a “declared” vintage for many Port houses and shippers.  While there's certainly elegance here, there's also plenty of "umph" to the sweet and savory complexity of cured tobacco, orange peel, warm stone, fig, date, and dried plum aromas and flavors.  Brisk on the finish, a wine to really savor.

Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978 Product #26993 (In Stock)
Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978 Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978

Very rare and limited.

"The 1978 Boal was aged in oak casks until bottling in February 2011. Compared directly against the Terrantez, the Boal does not quite have the same degree of complexity and harmony. It politely requests time to “tuck in its shirt” and “straighten its tie”. After several hours it offers scents of smoked walnut, a touch of peat, marmalade and furniture polish. The palate is very harmonious and seems to have more composure and refinement than the aromatics: cracked black pepper on the entry that reluctantly gives way to honey, bitter orange, marjoram and Clementine. It is not a heavyweight Boal, erring more towards Terrantez in terms of perceived sweetness, although it is graceful and elegant from start to finish."Wine Advocate 92 points

Maynard's Port Colheita 1934 Product #30549 (In Stock)
Maynard's Port Colheita 1934 Maynard's Port Colheita 1934

A limited treasure.

"The 1934 Colheita Port (Maynard's) is a blend of 25% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz, 15% Tinta Amarela, 10% Tinta Barroca and 30% of traditional grape varieties (Sousão, Bastardo, Rufete, Sousão, Tinta Francisca, among others); coming in at 154 grams per liter of residual sugar. It is one of many fine 1934s I've had. It's a happy trend. This powerhouse is initially all about its power and it has quite a lot. I always recommend drinking Tawnies a bit cool, but double underline that here. Concentrated and complex, it isn't just about preening in its power, though it adds some sweetness on the finish and becomes increasingly complex and flavorful as it calms down a bit. Overall, it's rather stunning. Since the 80th birthday celebrations are over, you may as well sit it down and knock it back. It's pretty fine."Wine Advocate 96 points
