Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets 2015, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy

“Pale, bright yellow. Explosive aromas of lemon, licorice, lichee and toasted baguette. The palate delivers a captivating combination of sucrosité, roundness and enveloping minerality, without quite the bracing stoniness of a cooler year. This very fine-grained wine boasts terrific palate presence. Finishes suave and very long, with subtle hints of lime, mint and rock.” Vinous 91-93 Points

“A beautifully if subtly layered nose flashes really lovely complexity with its pure array of spiced pear, lavender, spice and citrus wisps. The equally pure and refined middle weight flavors possess an almost pungent minerality while offering fine depth and sneaky good length.” Burghound 91-93 Points

Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenevottes 2015, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy

“Bright pale yellow. Lovely perfumed lift to the delineated aromas of citrus fruits and white flowers. Penetrating, energetic wine with a strong impression of salinity and dusty extract. The crop level here was 45 hectoliters per hectare but this wine, from a 1949 planting, is wonderfully plush and silky without any weightiness, conveying a tactile impression of concentration. Finishes lemon-limey and long.” Vinous 91-93 Points

“Here the nose is similar to that of the Vergers but with more prominent floral nuances. There is both more size and weight but also a slightly sleeker mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a powerful but refined finish. Good stuff.” Burghound 90-93 Points

Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers 2015, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy

“Bright pale yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of yellow peach and white pepper show a slightly candied quality but also very good lift. Plush, peppery and broad; quite dry and mineral-driven but not austere. Very horizontal in the mouth. Finishes classically dry and energetic, with terrific mineral persistence.” Vinous 91-93 Points

“A pungent nose combines notes of resin, various white orchard fruit and floral aromas that are trimmed in hints of wood and matchstick. The succulent and seductively textured medium weight flavors also possess plenty of dry extract, all wrapped in a citrus-tinged finish that offers a bit more depth and length. Worth a look.” Burghound 90-92 Points

Domaine La Bouissiere Gigondas 2015, 0.75L
Grenache / Syrah from Gigondas, Rhône

“Saturated ruby. Intense red and blue fruit aromas, along with suggestions of star anise, lavender and white pepper. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering sappy, focused black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that deepen and spread out steadily on the back half. Smoothly combines power and finesse and shows no rough edges. Fine-grained tannins sneak in late on the long, juicy finish, which leaves behind a suave floral pastille note.” Vinous 91-93 Points

“The richly textured 2015 Gigondas Tradition deserves a couple of years' cellaring before being enjoyed. This full-bodied blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah boasts gorgeous aromas of stone fruit and dried spices, a velvety texture and a long, complex finish.” Wine Advocate 92 Points

“Fleshy and alluring, with friendly plum sauce and warm fruitcake flavors backed by singed alder and light tobacco hints, while good grip supports the finish.” Wine Spectator 92 Points

Jean Royer Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Tradition 2015, 0.75L
Grenache / Mourvèdre / Syrah / Cinsault from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône

“Deep red. A perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, peppery spices and smoky minerals, plus a hint of lavender that builds in the glass. Vibrant raspberry and floral pastille flavors deepen and expand with air while maintaining vivacity. Silky tannins meld smoothly with the juicy fruit on the long, penetrating, racy finish, which repeats the floral note.” Vinous 91-93 Points

Les Aphillanthes Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau 1921 2015, 0.75L
Grenache Mourvedre / Carignan from Côtes du Rhône Villages, Rhône

“I think the star of the lineup is the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Rasteau 1921 and this Grenache-dominated blend (there’s 7% Mourvèdre and a splash of Carignan) comes from a south-facing hillside parcel of very old vines. Full-bodied, pure, polished and even finesse-oriented, it has fabulous notes of black raspberries, garrigue and flowers. It will keep for 10-12 years.” Wine Advocate 91-93 Points

Yves Cuilleron Cornas Le Village 2015, 0.75L
Syrah from Cornas, Rhône

“Dark ruby. Sexy dark berry, violet pastille and incense aromas are sharpened by black pepper and mineral notes. Displays very good focus and intensity on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry, violet pastille and allspice flavors that show no rough edges. Supple tannins build slowly through a very long, floral-accented finish, where the floral note echoes emphatically.” Vinous 91-93 Points

Yves Cuilleron Côte-Rôtie Madinière 2014, 0.75L
Syrah from Côte Rôtie, Rhône

"Youthful purple. Spicy blackberry and blueberry on the nose, complicated by a lively floral note. Dense, sappy and sharply focused, offering spicy dark berry flavors with hints of espresso and bitter chocolate. Finishes with impressive power and cut, silky tannins and a sexy violet pastille quality." Vinous, 91-93 points.

Montevertine Rosso di Toscana 2014, 0.75L
Sangiovese / Canaiolo / Colorino from Toscana, Toscana

“The 2014 Montevertine shows a little less density and darkness compared to its predecessors. That lighter color and leaner consistency you see here is characteristic of the 2014 vintage that saw little sunshine during the summer months and lots of rain. But, the wine also offers a point of acidic freshness, cherry brightness and streamlined elegance that sets it apart. It represents extraordinary craftsmanship by the entire winemaking team. Despite the difficulties encountered, what emerges is a graceful, charming and beautifully vintage-specific Sangiovese.” Wine Advocate 91-93
