Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition Product #14818 (In Stock)
Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition

This stunning Champabage blends 70% Pinot Noir/30% Chardonnay from 3 Grand Cru sites in Ambonnay, Verzenay and Bouzy with about half from 2011 and the rest 2010, 2009 and 2008. Some of the base wine fermented in barrel for richness, supporting low (under 5 g/l) dossage levels.  This release was disgourged in May 2016 and will certainly be another in a long string of 92-94 point winners.  Galloni's review of last Fall's release remains on point.

"The NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition is all class. Suave, silky and expressive on the palate, the NV Grand Cru Tradition is quite pretty, with lovely brightness and freshness to balance the wine's inherent richness. Red stone fruits, hazelnuts, white flowers and mint are all pushed forward in this deceptively understated Champagne from Egly-Ouriet."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Maynard's Port Tawny 40 Year Product #31447 (In Stock)
Maynard's Port Tawny 40 Year Maynard's Port Tawny 40 Year

A stunning old barrel-aged Port in an equally stunning package.  Just released and not yet rated, it's definitely a step up from the Wine Advocate 92-93 point 30 Year bottling.  The aromas and flavors are all about toasted hickory and caramelized pecan with undertones of dried apricot and raisin fruit.  Richly textured and very caramelized on the mid-palate before finishing dry and long.

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose N/V Product #24689 (In Stock)
Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose N/V Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose N/V

A classy, elegant rose from one of Champagne's most important producers.

"Light orange. Vibrant strawberry and orange zest aromas are complicated by notes of tea rose, smoky lees and chalky minerals. Bright, incisive red fruit flavors pick up a toasty nuance with air. Fresh, incisive and refreshingly tangy, with impressive finishing clarity and stony persistence."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years Product #32122 (In Stock)
Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years

This fairly young Sherry house has rapidly established itself as the benchmark for wildly complex, deeply flavored, sherry's based on old wines and no limited filtration.  This is a blend of young PX into 30 year-old Oloroso and transforms all ideas of what "Cream" Sherry can be. Rich and deep, it's loaded with plump raisin fruit, nutty complexity and accents of coffee, orange blossom, toffee and more.  Finishes with a zip of acidity that pulls you back.  A stunning wine to drink like you would the finest Tawny Port.

Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012 Product #31553 (In Stock)
Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012 Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012

"Dark ruby with a pale rim. Penetrating red cherry, cinnamon, minerals and botanical herbs on the perfumed, captivating nose; this has a strong aromatic quality that I rarely find in Amarone. Then slightly more austere in the mouth, with strong herbal elements adding a savory component to the ripe but vibrant red fruit flavors. Finishes long with a firm tannic spine, young, chewy tannins, and hints of gunflint. A knockout Amarone and one of the early candidates for wine of the vintage in the difficult 2012 vintage."  Vinous (d'Agata) 92 points

"This complex and fragrant wine opens with dried violet, black plum and cooking spice aromas. The smooth, well-structured palate doles out blackberry jam, pipe tobacco, ripe black cherry, nutmeg and licorice flavors. Velvety tannins provide elegant support. Drink through 2027."Wine Enthusiast 94 points

Quinta Do Noval Vintage Port 2011 Product #27566 (In Stock)
Quinta Do Noval Vintage Port 2011 Quinta Do Noval Vintage Port 2011

Beautiful stuff to cellar, but hard to resist right now.

"Deep, saturated ruby. Tight, high-pitched aromas of black fruits, minerals, spices, printer's ink and licorice, complicated by nutty and earthy nuances. Juicy, savory and youthfully imploded; not hugely opulent or sweet but a wine of great density and class, showing a pliant texture and no rough edges. This seemed even more intense after I swallowed it, showing a palate-drenching quality with no weightiness. Doesn't have quite the dimension or floral complexity of the Nacional but a wine of great finesse, and built for decades of life."International Wine Cellar 96 points

"The 2011 Quinta do Noval has wonderful precision on the nose with blackberry, cassis, intriguing flinty notes and a whiff of smoke. It might not possess the power of the Nacional but it has freshness to spare. That comes through on the beautifully composed palate, which is underpinned by fine tannins that lend it a silky smooth mouthfeel. There is real intensity here, but it is very controlled with superb minerality on the finish. Excellent."Wine Advocate 94-96 points

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
