Y. Clerget Volnay Clos du Verseuil 2016, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Volnay, Burgundy

"Bright red-ruby. Musky, complex soil tones along with black cherry and mocha on the nose. Quite suave and silky on entry, conveying a relaxed quality (production here was 42 hectoliters per hectare) but no shortage of concentration. In fact, this is a wonderfully classy, supple wine with sexy sweetness and rocky energy (the mother rock is close to the surface here). Soil and spice notes add flavor interest. Consistent from start to finish, this quintessential, refined Volnay spreads out on the back end to saturate the mouth, with its tannins fully buffered by fruit." Vinous 92-94 Points

"Much more discreet, if not invisible, wood sets off pure, cool and restrained aromas of red currant, raspberry and soft floral wisps. There is really lovely vibrancy to the detailed, sleek and refined medium weight flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract that serves to buffer the distinctly firm tannic spine shaping the lingering and beautifully balanced finale. This too is really quite good and worth considering." Burghound 91-93 Points

Domaine La Bouissiere Gigondas La Font de Tonin 2015, 0.75L
Grenache / Mourvèdre from Gigondas, Rhône

"Opaque ruby. Powerful red and dark berry scents are complemented by peppery spice, incense and floral pastille notes. Sappy and densely packed on the palate, offering vivacious black raspberry, cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors energized by a core of juicy acidity. Smooth, harmonious tannins build steadily on the impressively long, seamless finish, which leaves behind lavender pastille and juicy dark berry notes." Vinous 92-94

Domaine Les Grands Bois Rasteau Cuvée Marc 2015, 0.75L
Grenache / Mourvèdre / Syrah from Côtes du Rhône Villages, Rhône

“I loved the 2015 Rasteau Marc from winemaker Gilles Ferran, and this blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre offers a full-bodied, rich and concentrated style to go with classic black fruits (currants, hints of cassis), crushed rock-like minerality, toasted spice and earth. Brought up all in demi-muids, it’s a blockbuster style Rasteau that will keep for a decade or more.” Wine Advocate 92-94 Points

Domaine du Cayron Gigondas 2015, 0.75L
Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mouvedre from Gigondas, Rhône

“Dark ruby. Potent mineral- and smoke-accented cherry, boysenberry and garrigue scents pick up a sexy incense nuance as the wine opens up. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors and a hint of smoked meat. Concentrated yet light on its feet, playing power off finesse with a smooth hand and finishing impressively long, sweet and youthfully tannic. I'd happily lose this wine in the cellar for a while.” Vinous 92-94 points

Yves Cuilleron Saint-Joseph Les Serines 2014, 0.75L
Syrah from Saint-Joseph, Rhône

"Bright violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blueberry, cherry cola and licorice, while a smoky mineral accent builds in the glass. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors brightened by juicy acidity and a spicy nuance. Clings with superb tenacity on the subtly tannic finish, leaving behind sweet black and blue fruit notes." Vinous 92-94 points.

Yves Cuilleron Saint-Joseph Les Serines 2015, 0.75L
Syrah from St. Joseph, Rhône

“Dark purple. Smoke- and pepper-accented black and blue fruit aromas pick up suggestions of candied licorice, violet and star anise with aeration. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense, mineral-laced cassis, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that smoothly combine richness and vivacity. Shows excellent clarity and floral lift on the finish, which features building tannins and an emphatic echo of smoky minerals and peppery spices.” Vinous 92-94 Points

“A bolder and more assertive St Joseph from Cuilleron with more oak-derived, exotic and fragrant spices as well as dark chocolate and rich dark plum fruits. The palate has plush, flavor-drenched tannins that deliver a succulently appealing” James Suckling 93 Points

“Tasting like the blood of Syrah with its liquid blackberry, violets, flowers and peppery aromas and flavors, Yves' 2015 Saint Joseph les Serines is medium to full-bodied, seamless and silky, with high-quality tannin and a great finish. This cuvée comes from multiple terroirs and will spend 18 months in 40% new French oak.” Wine Advocate 90-92 Points
