Antoine Bouvet Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut 2016, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Villers Marmery, Champagne

" Only 102 Bottles in the U.S.

In 1970 Guy Bouvet, Antoine’s grandfather launched his domaine in Mareuil sur Ay and ran it largely by himself, with most of the 5 hectares being sold to Bollinger. Guy worked with a small holding of vineyards spread across three villages (Mareuil sur Ay, Avenay val d’Or and Bisseuil). From an early age, Antoine took a budding interest in the family business. He learned from his grandfather the joy of hard work, caring for the land, and the precision of cellar work so very necessary to make great Champagne. Antoine’s love for his grandfather can be seen in the homage to him on the label of his Champagnes.

Antoine attended the Viticampus in Avize and started working with his grandfather in 2011 and in 2013 he took over complete operations of the domaine, where he has worked solely with oak and began the use of biodynamic practices. With working with his grandfather in the first couple of years, it has been a transition to organic vineyard practices and in 2012 and 2014 both were planted on 40% organic vineyards, while 2020, and going forward all vineyards are farmed 100% organic and biodynamic throughout."

Domaine Du Nozay Sancerre Château du Nozay 2018, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre, Loire

"Cyril produces a separate cuvee from the estate’s oldest and best-exposed vines closest to the chateau itself. As of 2016, the vines for the “Chateau du Nozay” are 45 years old, and while the wine possesses the same almost Chablis-like carriage as the “Domaine” bottling above, the intensity and depth are noticeably ratcheted up here. While it’s still lean and punchy, the vines’ diet of more sun and deeper subsoils reveals itself in a glimmer of glycerol succulence on the mid-palate and a rounder, longer finish. A certain density that still avoids any sense of heaviness suggests the possibility of interesting cellar development, and for those inclined to allow the Sauvignon’s youthful exuberance to subside and let the limestone shine through, this will prove a very rewarding purchase. The production here is barely five percent of that of the “Domaine” Sancerre, so available quantities are scant" Importer Notes, Rosenthal Wine Merchant

Jean Foillard Morgon Cuvée Corcelette 2018, 0.75L

"Foillard’s Morgons represent brilliantly crafted expressions of Beaujolais’ grandest terroirs. Technical details (available on our site) cannot adequately communicate this wine’s raison d’être—instead, consider a typical evening chez Foillard: Guests gather. Corks pop. Charcuterie emerges. Stories are told. Laughter rings out. Old vintages turn up. More corks are pulled. More food. Moderation takes a back seat. More laughter. Cheese. Sleep. And that’s what this Morgon—beyond its sweet, earthy fruit and sensuous, velvety texture—is all about." Importer Notes, Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut 2008, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

"A slightly more luxurious nature to the 2008 than the great 2007. Full-bodied with a lovely framework of acidity and dry fruit, such as apples, pears and peaches. Opulent. Dense and muscular. Yet, it’s balanced and harmonious. Line of acidity at the end. One for the cellar." 99 Points James Suckling

 Taittinger’s 2008 Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is simply breathtaking. I have tasted it many times over the years in various trial disgorgements and it has never been anything less than compelling. The final, finished wine captures all of that potential. Bright, focused and wonderfully deep, Comtes is a fabulous example of a vintage that expresses so much energy but with real fruit intensity, the signatures that distinguish it from other vintages (1996 comes to mind) that were similarly taut, but more austere in the early going. Although the 2008 impresses right out of the gate, it only really starts to open up with several hours of air. The 2008 Comtes represents the purest essence of the Côtes des Blancs in a great, historic vintage. Readers who can find the 2008 should not hesitate, as it is a truly brilliant epic Champagne that no one who loves the very best in Champagne will want to be without. 98+ Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2018 Les Cruzelles comes from gravelly-clayey soil, the Merlot picked September 18-25 and the Cabernet Franc on September 28, and is raised in 40% new oak. It has a more opulent, higher-toned bouquet compared to the La Chenade, offering expressive blueberry and black currant fruit and becoming more floral in the glass as iris and violet emerge. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins that provide real weight and concentration to this outstanding Lalande de Pomerol. There is wonderful weight and elegance and impressive delineation toward the persistent, spicy finish.

Deep purple-black in color, it features fragrant notes of lilacs, Morello cherries and blueberry compote over a core of plum preserves and woodsmoke plus a waft of underbrush.

"It is hard to believe how long I have been drinking and cellaring the wines from Edmond Vatan, as the first vintage I ever sold of his wine was the 1988 all the way back in late 1980s. I should have cellared some then, as I am sure the ’88 is still drinking brilliantly today! However, it took me a decade or so to get my act together and cellar my Vatan for the long haul, so the oldest bottle I have left in my cellar is from the 1997 vintage. . .Monsieur Vatan was born in 1929 and turns ninety-one this year, but continues to cruise along in good health.

Cruse Wine Co. Blanc de Noirs Alder Springs Vineyard Brut 2017, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Mendocino County, California

"A somewhat experimental wine meant to play with the line between oxidative and reductive and to use different techniques to explore terroir. The fruit is pressed whole cluster using a traditional Champagne cycle. However only the couer de cuvée is used.

It is then disgorged and bottled without dosage of any kind. This oxidative style is meant to bring out the minerality of the site. The nose is heavy with marzipan and berry fruit with aromas of pastry and a hint of miso. Extremely complex with pistachio gelato and floral notes also making an appearance."

Dupont-Fahn Bourgogne Blanc Chaumes des Perrières 2018, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Bourgogne, Burgundy

"Bourgogne “Chaumes des Perrières” has an interesting history, as up until the late-1970s, this lieu à dit above the premier cru of Perrières in Meursault was entitled to Meursault villages status. Raymond Dupont-Fahn’s grandfather, Michel, had bought a parcel here in 1975 and petitioned the INAO to add twenty centimeters of top soil to his unplanted parcel, as the topsoil was so thin that he feared new plantings here would wither and die. The INAO agreed, but the other growers in Meursault were upset and petitioned to have the parcel declassified to Bourgogne from Meursault AC, which they were also successful in doing. So these vines, which sit fifty meters above the Perrières vines of Domaine Coche-Dury are only ranked as Bourgogne!" ​John Gilman, View From The Cellar

Figgins Proprietary Red Estate 2016, 0.75L

"Winemaker Chris Figgins has produced one of the wines of the vintage and his 2016 Estate Red Wine checks in as a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot that spent 23 months in 50% new French oak. It offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as a killer bouquet of crème de cassis, toasted spice, tobacco, and earth. Incredibly pure, full-bodied, and layered on the palate, it's a magical wine that has no hard edges, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish.

Iron, dried herbs, sweet dried cherry, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and earthy notes give the Molsino a good deal of aromatic complexity to match its intense, saline-infused minerality. Today, though, the tannins and acids are almost overpowering. Readers will find an old-school, classically austere Gattinara that needs 10-15 years to be at its best.

In 2017, the Gattinara is a bit richer than it often is - the result of the warm dry year – but its profile is super-classic. Sweet pipe tobacco, mint, dried herbs, licorice, dried cherry and Alpine herbs fill out its ample frame effortlessly. I would give the 2017 a few years in bottle, but it won’t need more than that to start drinking well. In 2017, Roberto Conterno did not bottle his vineyard-designates. Instead, all the best lots went into the straight Gattinara, an overachieving wine that delivers the goods. I don’t expect the 2017 will be among the most long-lived wines here, but that will hardly be an issue for most readers." 94 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

However, the house style is extremely precise and focused. It starts off slowly, revealing itself in small steps before coming into full bloom. The wide aromatic span of the wine should become even more prominent with three or four more years of cellar age. This wine does a nice job of matching the acidity of Sangiovese to the generous fruit of the warm 2015 vintage. Some 13,000 bottles will be released in March 2020." 95+ Points Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018, 0.75L
Grenache / Syrah from Chateauneuf du Pape, Rhône

"Another in a string of top vintages, Beaucastel's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape was produced from Grenache yields of only eight hectoliters per hectare ("normal" is about 28 hectoliters per hectare, according to Marc Perrin). The final blend I was shown is almost candied in its fruity intensity of raspberries and cherries, yet it has a potent underpinning of more savory elements, like tapenade, grilled meat and dried spices. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins, this shows tremendous length, reverberating with hints of crushed stone on the finish." 95-97 Points Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

Chapelle Saint Theodoric Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Guigasse 2017, 0.75L
Grenache from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône

"More powerful than its Le Grand Pin stablemate, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape La Guigasse is made the same minimalistic way—100% whole-cluster Grenache from a single site, in this case a sandy parcel in the lieu-dit La Guigasse. Raised in demi-muids for two years or more, depending on the vintage, it has some meaty, charred notes that could be barrel-derived, but the overall oak impact is probably more textural than olfactory. Hints of rose petals, cherries and even orange zest join with darker toned notes of cola and dried spices in a whirl of complexity that's complemented by the wine's silky tannins. It's full-bodied but feels lighter, filling the mouth with its flavors while leaving the palate refreshed on the long finish." 96 Points Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

Doyard Oeil de Perdrix Rosé Extra Brut 2015, 0.75L
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

"The 2015 Doyard Oiel de Perdrix Extra Brut Millésime is composed from a cépages of seventy-five percent pinot noir and twenty-five percent chardonnay, with the pinot noir hailing from Aÿ and the chardonnay from Avize. The vins clairs do not go through malolactic and are given some extended aging in old Burgundy casks prior to bottling up for secondary fermentation in September of 2016. The wine was aged thirty-six months sur latte and disgorged in September of 2019, with a finishing dosage of three grams per liter. It is quite pale in color and offers up a beautiful bouquet of white cherry, peach, rye bread, chalky soil tones, dried flowers, discreet spice tones and just a whisper of oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with fine mid-palate depth and soil signature, bright acids, frothy mousse and a long, vibrant finish.

The wine is primarily pinot noir, with a minor percentage of chardonnay included. The wine was disgorged in October of 2019 and finished with a dosage of less than six grams per liter. The color is its customary pale salmon and the nose offers up a very refined blend of tangerine, wild strawberry, a hint of watermelon, chalky soil tones, brioche and a touch of rose petal in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, outstanding balance and grip, fine mineral drive, elegant mousse and a long, refined and vibrant finish.

Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Bandol Cuvée Estagnol 2015, 0.75L
Mourvèdre from Bandol, Provence

"The single vineyard bottling of Estagnol from the Bronzo family is made from fifty year old vines, with the cépages of this bottling being ninety-two percent mourvèdre and eight percent grenache. The soils here are limestone and clay and the rows are planted east-west, which delays ripening a bit (and is certainly beneficial in this age of global warming). The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in old foudre. The 2015 Estagnol delivers a fine aromatic constellation of sweet dark berries, cassis, roasted meats, a touch of pepper, bonfire, a fine base of soil and just a hint of garrigue in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with plenty of sappiness at the core, superb structure and grip, ripe tannins and a long, nascently complex and very promising finish. This wine is listed at 14.5 percent octane and carries its ripeness very well indeed, with only a hint of backend heat. It is a proper vin de garde and will demand plenty of cellaring time before it blossoms, but it will be excellent in due course." 93 Points John Gilman, View From the Cellar

Bully was an ancient property, no longer existing, which at the time belonged to Abbaye de Maizières. The term Bulliaco from 925, derived from "bubbles", refers to the existence of a gushing spring (Fontaine Bully) close by.

Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County, California

"Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2018 Pinot Noir Los Alamos saw just a touch of stems (15%) and 18 months in 20% new French oak. Its light ruby color is followed by a perfumed, complex, medium-bodied 2018 with terrific purity of fruit, lots of spice, decayed flowers, and forest floor notes, gorgeous balance, and integrated acidity. It's another beautiful, brilliant effort to enjoy over the coming decade." ​95 Points Jeb Dunnuck

Domaine Tempier Bandol Rouge 2018, 0.75L
Mourvèdre / Grenache / Cinsault / Carignan from Bandol, Provence

"At Domaine Tempier grapes from our different vineyards are skillfully blended to create this wine, made up of between 70 and 75% Mourvedre (depending on the year) combined with Grenache, Cinsault and a hint (2%) of old Carignan. This fruity, well balanced wine can be enjoyed after 3 or 4 years, but develops extremely pleasant tertiary aromas (leather, animal and undergrowth) with further ageing. The wine’s balance gives it an ageing potential of 15 years or more. 

The Cuvée Classique blend combines grapes from the estate’s different terroirs. In the area known as ‘Le Petit Moulin de la Cadière’, named after its windmill, the vines grow on south-facing terraces stretching out over hilly terrain. The soil in this part of the vineyard is characterised by the presence of fossilised seashells (85 million year old bivalve molluscs). Clay is found to varying depths throughout the estate’s soil and, although the clay is quite dense, alluvial layers comprised of silt-sand sediment deposits are also present. One might think these looser layers in the soil would have little influence on the wine, but in fact they provide excellent drainage which helps to produce very refined wines." ​Producer Notes, DomaineTempier.com

Anthill Farms Chardonnay Peugh Vineyard 2018, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Russian River Valley, California

"The 2018 Chardonnay Peugh comes from a vineyard originally planted in 1887 and grafted to Chardonnay in 1944. It was made with 20% new Austrian oak and has bright notions of petrichor, lime peel, green herbs and green pineapple with honeyed notes in the background. The palate is medium-bodied and satiny, swelling with savory flavors that are refreshed by mineral accents and lively acidity, and it finishes very long. The dynamic dichotomy of brightness and savory bass tones is compelling and provides a hint of what this may be like with another five years in bottle." 94+ points Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate

La Vizcaina (Raúl Pérez) Bierzo Las Gundiñas 2018, 0.75L
Mencia from Bierzo, Castilla y León

"La Gundiñas is the wine that shows the most differences between 2017 and 2018, when the 2018 La Vizcaína Las Gundiñas feels like a mini-Bonnes Mares! This happened in 2013, and this 2018 is like a refined version. This vineyard was somewhat irregular in the past, but they bought it in 2018; now that they work the vineyard and have 100% control, it might be more regular. There have been ups and downs with this wine over the years, and this 2018 is clearly one of the ups. The other highlight was 2013. This wine is the palest of the 2018s. It's from a vineyard that perhaps has a bit more white Valenciana grapes. This is super elegant, a rara avis. Bravo! 5,500 bottles were filled in May 2020." ​95 Points Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

La Vizcaina (Raúl Pérez) Bierzo El Rapolao 2018, 0.75L
Mencia from Bierzo, Castilla y León

"There is a bit of an animal hint on the nose of the 2018 La Vizcaína El Rapolao, which Raúl Pérez tells me is always part of the character of the wine when it's young. The difference with the 2017 is the quality of the tannins, which rounder and more elegant here, and the concentration, which is lower here, so this 2018 comes through as more fluid, fresh and elegant, with a silkier mouthfeel. They finally bought the vineyard in 2018, and the change in viticulture resulted in lower yields: they produced 6,000 bottles of this 2018, compared with the 10,000 bottles of the 2017. They have bought three more plots for this bottling, so volumes will grow in the future. The initial sensation fades after the wine has been in bottle for one hour, and it makes sense that it's gong to disappear with some more time in bottle. Pérez thinks it might be related to the recent bottling. It was bottled in May 2020, a few weeks before I tasted it." 95+ Points Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

After an hour of air, it develops a palpably grainy marine and mineral texture much like a Chablis, but with a fuller, fleshier fruit presence that's more like a Cote d'Or.

"A blend of mostly Grenache and Syrah (there are small amounts of other red varieties), the 2018 Vaucluse Le Pigeoulet offers a complex style in its kirsch, herbes de Provence, white pepper, and floral aromas and flavors. This beauty is sweetly fruited, with polished tannins, loads of charm, and a great finish. In the Brunier family since 1898, Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe lies on the eastern edge of Châteauneuf du Pape and covers 60 hectares of some of the finest terroir out there, the famed la Crau plateau. Looking at the winemaking, the estate has destemmed all their grapes since 1989 and the wines see all native ferments, with no temperature control, and aging all in older foudre. In addition, due to the recent completion of a new state of the art winery, the grapes are now moved only by gravity. While 2016 was an incredible vintage for this estate, they’ve produced brilliant wines in both 2017 and 2018. Lovers of elegant, classical Châteauneuf du Pape, both red and white, can’t wrong with this estate." Jeb Dunnuck

Pinot Noir from Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, Burgundy

"Amélie’s Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits planted in 1970 on the plateau behind Vosne-Romanée. The topsoil here is shallow clay and limestone on limestone bedrock—quite typical for what one would find up on these plateaus. With rocky soils such as where this wine is grown, the tendency is to destem the grapes. You can expect tension and bones here along with a naturally high mineral frequency—a common occurrence in wines from these kinds of rocky sites. Its cement fermentation, old wood aging and early bottling also serve to confine the wine’s fantastic freshness to the finished product. Personally, I love drinking wines from vineyard parcels like this because they’re stripped down by the rocky terrain with their minerally-ness displayed at the forefront." Importer Notes, The Source

After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed; the fermentation continues for three weeks in cement cuves at a temperature controlled 18 degrees Celsius; the wine is vinified completely dry. The malo-lactic fermentation is blocked to preserve the freshness of the wine and the wine is normally bottled at some point between May and July of the following year.

"The new release of Champagne Doyard’s “Cuvée Vendémiare” non-vintage Blanc de Blancs Brut is from the base year of 2014, though this only comprised fifty percent of the blend. The remainder is thirty percent from 2013 and twenty percent from the vintage of 2012. Only fifteen percent of the vins clairs go through malo, with the forty percent of the wines raised in older Burgundy barrels prior to bottling up for secondary fermentation. It was aged sur latte for fifty-six months and finished with a dosage of four grams per liter. The wine delivers a superb nose of pear, golden delicious apple, chalky minerality, crème patissière, spring flowers and just a hint of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is brisk, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb mineral drive and cut, refined mousse and a long, perfectly balanced and extremely promising finish. This bottling is always built to age well (I have had superb examples with twenty years of cellaring) and the new release, though approachable now, really deserves some time in the cellar to start to deliver some of its secondary layers of complexity and soften up its acids." 92 Points John Gilman, View from the Cellar

Troplong Mondot 2019, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc from Saint-Émilion , Bordeaux

"The 2019 Troplong Mondot is a blend this year of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, harvested from the 10th to the 25th of September. The pH is 3.55—pretty incredible when you consider the alcohol is nearly 15%! I hasten to add that from tasting, I would have guessed this was 14.3% to 14.5% alcohol. It is the kind of wine with so much energy it practically does pirouettes on your palate. Opaque purple-black colored, the nose is fantastically floral, bursting from the glass with notes of candied violets, red roses and lavender over a core of plum preserves, wild blueberries and black raspberries with touches of garrigue, tilled soil, wild fungi and crushed rocks plus a waft of powdered cinnamon. The medium-bodied palate is like a tightly coiled spring, featuring beautifully knit layers of black and red fruits, earth and floral notes within a firm, fine-grained frame and bags of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. This is a far cry from the old-school style of Troplong Mondot from a few years back, and it is incredibly impressive. This wine is aging in French oak barriques, some larger vats, and a small proportion is in amphorae. The oak portion is 60% new." 96-98 Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Champet Côte-Rôtie La Viallière 2018, 0.75L
Syrah / Viognier from Côte Rôtie, Rhône

"Dark violet. Spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruit aromas show excellent definition and pick up olive, smoky bacon and candied violet notes with air. Sappy and concentrated but energetic as well, offering palate-staining blackberry, bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors that become spicier as the wine opens up. Melds power and finesse with a sure hand and finishes impressively long and sweet, with chewy tannins building steadily. All whole clusters and 10% new oak, a combination of foudres and demi-muids." 94 Points Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Rauzan-Ségla 2019, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot from Margaux, Bordeaux

"The black fruits burrow downwards through the palate at first, keeping things pretty closed, everything holding its breath, before the fruit opens. There is the precision of Rauzan Ségla that is reminiscent of the 2016, less of the immediate voluptuous impact of 2018 but the density becomes extremely clear in the glass. A serious Rauzan, cassis and cedar, still with a rinse of iris flowers to give it the Margaux touch. 3.73pH. 50/50 1st and 2nd wine. A yield of 42l/ha."96 Points Jane Anson, Decanter

Marc Deschamps Pouilly-Fumé Les Champs de Cri 2018, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly-Fumé, Loire

"The “Champs de Cri” is an important parcel of 2.3 hectares known in Les Loges as the site that produces the most elegant and long-lived of the wines of this appellation. Deschamps’ holdings are exclusively old vines with an average age of 55 years (as of 2012). Out of respect for the complexity and depth of this wine, Deschamps leaves this wine in contact with the lees for several months more than his other cuvées and it is released for sale later than the other wines of the estate. It is frequently marked by notes of bitter orange, jasmine and beeswax." Importer Notes, Rosenthal Wine Merchant

Vibrant, mineral accented strawberry, tangerine and quince scents, along with subtle herb and floral nuances in the background.

Pape Clément 2019, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon from Pessac Léognan, Bordeaux

"I loved the 2019 Château Pape Clement. This beautiful terroir in the heart of Pessac has produced and magical 2019. Stunning notes of crème de cassis, spring flowers, violets, crushed stone, and lead pencil and flow to a full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, elegant effort with great tannins and a rock star of a finish. It's a rich, powerful wine, yet it's the level of purity and elegance that sets it apart. Bravo! Tasted twice." 96-99 Points Jeb Dunnuck

Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2019, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc / Merlot / Petit Verdot from Pauillac, Bordeaux

"The 2019 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande was picked 16 September to 8 October. It has a showstopping nose: intense black fruit laced with graphite and mint. (Whisper it...it reminds me of their First Growth next door neighbor.) The palate is underpinned by very refined tannins that cradle what may well be the purest fruit you will find in this vintage. Unbelievably precise all the way through to the finish, I admit staring at my glass trying to find fault with it. Unless winemaker Nicolas Glumineau gets distracted by the new Cure album and makes a catastrophic error during the rest of its élevage, which he is not prone to doing, you are not looking at a modern-day 1982 or 2016, but something even better and more profound. Tasted from three bottles with consistent notes." 98-100 Points Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées 2017, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Gevrey Chambertin, Burgundy

"The lieu à dit of les Seuvrées also lies on the opposite side of the RN74 from the slope of premier and grand cru vineyards, but it is very well-situated on the Morey border, and much of its border across the road is with Mazoyrès-Chambertin. The 2017 from Laurent Lignier is another outstanding village wine, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of red and black cherries, mustard seed, complex soil tones, gamebird, a bit of cocoa, refined soil elements and a gentle framing of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with lovely purity on the attack, plenty of soil signature, suave tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. Another truly exceptional Gevrey AC." 91+ Points John Gilman, View From the Cellar

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis Les Chaffots 2017, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Morey St. Denis, Burgundy

"The 2017 les Chaffots also has a bit of whole clusters in it this year, in this case twenty-five percent. This seems to be one of the best young examples of Chaffots I have had the pleasure to taste from the Lignier family, as the wine soars from the glass in a fine aromatic blend of red and black cherries, vinesmoke, venison, a very complex base of soil, mustard seed, stem spice and a bit of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite sappy at the core, with excellent focus and balance, ripe tannins and a long, poised and very promising finish. Chaffots is not always the most elegant premier cru out of the blocks, but this is not the case with this very refined 2017 version." 93 Points John Gilman, View From the Cellar

On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with the vintage’s sappy core of fruit, great transparency, suave, refined tannins and a very, very long and promising finish that closes with outstanding energy and grip.

La Gaffelière 2019, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Emilion, Bordeaux

"The 2019 La Gaffelière is a distinctive Saint-Émilion, which should be inferred positively. There is something atypically very tertiary about the nose, beautifully defined and focused with plenty of fruit, yet very complex and cerebral. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and wonderful harmony. The silky texture belies the structure underneath and the finish is extraordinarily long. Ancient vintages of La Gaffelière like the 1961 are legendary. This ranks alongside them - the best I have ever tasted. Magnificent." 95-97 Neal Martin, Vinous

It is being aged in French oak barrels, 80% new, for 18 months. This grand vin represents 49% of the harvest. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose skyrockets from the glass with vibrant scents of freshly crushed blackberries, black raspberries and blackcurrant pastilles followed by perfumed sparks of fragrant earth, clove oil, lilacs, crushed rocks, molten chocolate and cinnamon toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with layer upon layer of black fruit, mineral and exotic spices, framed by beautifully ripe, finely-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a lingering soft-spoken whisper of floral and earth notions. This is an absolutely beguiling expression that is classic Pauillac and yet it is Pauillac like no other."
