    This morning brings another new headline stirring Zapata release, this time Argentina’s crown jewel has earned (yet again) tremendous critical acclaim – ­including an outstanding 100 point review. With increased attention to single vineyard high altitude terroir, “place” has come front and center at Catena, and, as a result, the estate’s wines connect majesty and power with increasingly intimate scope and scale. While you can say this isn’t exactly a new recipe for Catena Zapata, one can argue they are getting better and better at it. The wines, with each new release, are showing more and more individual...

    So, what makes this wine so special? Antoine Foucault is the son of the late Charly Foucault of the famed Foucault brothers behind Clos Rougeard. Antoine cut his teeth at the legendary Loire estate and you can tell– the wines are unbelievable. Vividly powerful with pure mineral and succulent fruit, Charpentrie astounds with its detail, precision and body. No one in America except for a handful are able to taste Rougeard (RIP). Yet hiding here in plain sight is one of the truly great wines of France. Complex and powerful without lacking nuance and detail, Domaine du Collier’s wines are utterly mesmerizing with their...

    Much like Chablis, there is an argument about who’s next. Yes, there are superstars in the appellation. Wines that are nigh impossible to source, and when you do, the tariff is, frankly, intolerable for the average human. Even American upper middle class human. The question then becomes: where can one find the Lafon or Roulot level of quality without paying Roulot or Lafon like prices. In Chablis, I like Pinson for a Raveneau or Duavissat like experience; in Meursault, it is Jobard. Antoine Jobard. Antoine took over from his father Francois in 2007. He had been involved in the day to day operations for...

    Bordeaux List
    Château Gloria is one of the hidden gems of Bordeaux. Located right in the heart of St Julien, there is frankly no way that it wouldn’t be a classified growth if not for the fact that it didn’t exist at the time Bordeaux’s classification was made. More on that below, but the end result is that their spectacular 2010, at nearly a decade old and with all sorts of praise and points thrown at it from all directions, is way cheaper than it should be. Even accounting for Gloria’s usual excellence and value, this is punching above its weight. Three tasting notes below from Messrs Parker and Martin below from three different...

    Be it the freshly cut flowers or sweet cherries and spices, its silky open knit texture or its excellent focus, Monte Bernardi’s one-liter bottle of “Italia Ti Amo” is an open love letter to Italian wine. And no, we don’t mean one particular appellation, but every appellation. The author of this love letter is a winemaker named Michael Schmelzer, an ex-pat from Michigan who has wrangled fruit from all over Italy (Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera, Canaiolo, Frappato, Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese, and Montepulciano) and crafted a remarkable little table wine worth its weight in gold. First, all the fruit Mr. Schmelzer has...

    Every year pickers come from all over Europe volunteer for the Cotat harvest. If you were lucky enough to join either cousin, two things would jump out at you: The first is the profound dizzying steepness of their vineyards (all considered the best in Sancerre and Chavignol). The second is the crazy number of seat cushions and ropes scattered around the vineyards. It is a picking system only the Cotats could have drummed up. One is to slide down outrageously steep plots with a cushion tied to your rear while desperately holding onto a bucket in front of you. Colorful, a bit outrageous, but also rooted...

    Jeanne-Marie de Champs visited us again on Tuesday night. A stalwart of the Burgundy trade, she has been both ambassador and guide to generations of Burgundy buyers, working with elite (Méo-Camuzet, Clos de Tart, et al.) and humble Domaines alike, her view of Burgundy is all-encompassing, catholic and broad in its purview. As such, she has often been the champion of small Domaines that offer tremendous value, or deserve better attention. On Tuesday night she featured two such Domaine that remain...

    López de Heredia has remained a steadfast symbol of classical winemaking and traditional Riojan style since such a thing ever existed. Very little has changed here since the winery’s foundation in the 130 plus years ago. The estate still employs the original oak vats they used from the very beginning. Perhaps even more revealing (and risky) is that Heredia does not do any temperature manipulation during fermentation, something very few in the world ever risk to do. They use old school egg-whites for...

    Nothing crazy going on here, just a whopping 45% discount on a tasty single vineyard Pinot from Oregon’s beloved Raptor Ridge. Usually priced at $45, this little gem is yours for only $25. Revealing gorgeous earthy tones with dark forest fruits, the 2011 Meredith Mitchell hums with everything we crave in aged Pinot: velvety texture, supple tannin and layers upon layers of complex tertiary flavors and tones. While 2011 in Oregon was originally panned by the critics for having a closed off austere youth, with time the wines have blossomed into being one of the most beloved in ages showing off excellent freshness...

    From last year’s offer: Graillot founded his own Domaine only in in 1985, and started making some pretty serious waves around 1990 when Robert Parker compared his Crozes to most producers Hermitage. By now the secret is well and truly out, but the comparison still holds true. Wonderfully the prices are still incredibly good too given the adulation the wines have received, and the only problem is getting hold of them. Today we have them in both 750ml and magnum format. These are wines of remarkable depth and structure- far more serious than one would expect from a typical Crozes. Complex...
