  • Domaine de L’Arlot, Nuits St Georges 1er Cru, “Clos des Forets” 2012


    “The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Forets Saint Georges comes from vertically planted vines that are perpendicular to the RN74. Different geological expressions up the slope are blended into three different cuvees, which are then assembled prior to bottling. It has an attractive nose of wild strawberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor scents: well-defined with subtle use of both oak and whole bunches. The palate is medium-bodied with a sorbet-like freshness on the entry. This is full of energy and vitality, the acidity well-judged with admirable weight and presence on the masculine finish that suggests this will age very well. Superb.”-(92-94)WA

  • Domaine de L’Arlot, Nuits St Georges 1er Cru, “Clos des Forets” 2013


    “A brooding but notably ripe nose of dark cherry and pungent earth aromas slides gracefully into strikingly rich and tautly muscular big-bodied flavors that possess praiseworthy concentration. There is plenty of underlying tension and energy to the mouth coating and very serious finish that displays only a touch of rusticity. This overtly robust effort will, as is usually the case, require plenty of bottle age.”-92BH

  • Domaine du Clos Frantin, Grands-Echezeaux, Grand Cru 2011


    Noticeable but reasonably well-integrated oak is present on the very reserved if overtly spicy, cool and distinctly floral nose. There is fine size and weight to the robust and muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess good muscle yet the dense supporting tannins are also relatively fine. There is plenty of energy to the driving, even explosive finish that goes on and on. A classic Grands Echézeaux that will need a long cellar snooze to arrive at its full majority.”-92 BH

  • Domaine Louis Boillot & Fils, Pommard 1er Cru, Les Fremiers 2008


    “The 2008 Pommard Les Fremiets literally sparkles on the palate with layers of fresh, mineral-laced fruit. This is an especially pointed, energetic wine that needs time in bottle to blossom. Hints of freshly cut roses linger on the intensely fragrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.”-93WA

  • Domaine Zind Humbrecht, Riesling, Brand, Grand Cru 2016


    “From 66-year-old vines on the south-facing granite soils of the steep and low-yielding cru (34 hectoliters per hectare), the yellow-golden 2016 Alsace Grand Cru Brand Riesling is clear, fresh and pure on the deep, ripe and mineral nose. On the palate, this is an intense, lush and elegant Riesling with a firm, mineral structure, fine acidity and a very long, salty finish with lots of power, grip and mineral expression. This is a dense and concentrated Brand that is far too young to be enjoyed today, but its aging potential should be enormous (as always), particularly in 2016 due to its very tight and mineral structure. “In 2016, the grapes were healthy, ripened early (an exception in that vintage), and the Brand fermented slowly, but the yeasts went to the end of their task,” says Olivier Humbrecht, who finds his 2016 Brand pretty delicate compared to the often rather richer style of this steep grand cru. Tasted June 2018.” -94 RP

  • Jean-Philippe Fichet, Bourgogne Blanc, Vielles Vignes 2012


    “A discreet hint of wood sets off the slightly riper and more complex aromas of pear, citrus and green tea. There is good richness and fine size and weight in the context of the appellation, all wrapped in a delicious and lightly mineral-inflected finish. This is worth considering plus it should reward 2 to 3 years in the cellar if desired.” (86-88) BH

  • Jonata, La Sangre de Jonata, Santa Ynez Valley, 2012


    “Reminding me of a top Hermitage, the 2012 La Sangre de Jonata checks in as a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier that’s aged primarily in neutral and larger oak barrels. It’s flat-out gorgeous in 2012 and gives up tons of black raspberry, crushed violets, cracked pepper and hints of game. Full-bodied, seamless, silky and fabulously pure, it has good acidity and fine tannin that come through on the finish. Give it a few years and enjoy bottles through 2032.” – 97 WA

  • Krug, Clos du Mesnil, Blanc de Blancs, Brut 2000

    $1,099.00 $855.00

    “The 2000 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos du Mesnil is rich, deep, textured and wonderfully complete. The seductiveness of the 2000 vintage comes through beautifully, but the Mesnil has extra dimensions of depth that aren’t found in the Vintage. Smoke, ash, graphite, pastry and lemon are some of the nuances that unfold in this supremely gracious, refined Clos du Mesnil. I expect the 2000 to take some time to reach its peak, but it is superb, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035.”- 95WA

  • La Jota, Howell Mountain, Cabernet Franc 2015


    “Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Howell Mountain has a very deep purple-black color, revealing a drop dead gorgeous perfume of red roses, violets and black tea over a core of kirsch, red currants and black raspberries, with wafts of cinnamon stick and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, very finely textured and refreshing in the mouth, it offers wonderful perfumed red fruit layers and a long, mineral-laced finish. 522 cases produced.” 96RP
