    This is another extraordinary find from my Iberian trip in August, this one made in small enough production that it is released only in three packs. At the time of tasting, forty of these packs were available for the United States, so we bought all of them. That equates to about 25% of total production but is still a tiny amount to go around. This is breathtakingly good, do not miss it. It’s one where I think it’s worth referring to my scribbled shorthand notes made in the winery. Sometimes I think these say more about...

    The wine world is funny. If you travel in the right circles, talk the to right people, go to the right wine bars and restaurants, you’ll always be on the cutting edge of the “next big thing.” You meet Somm X for dinner in Paris. Somm X heard about some under-the-radar Champagne producer from wine writer Y, who met Importer Q at Wine Fair Z. Now you’re hearing all about it. You go to a couple different wine bars for a couple different night caps at all the trendiest places in Paris. And guess what? That...

    Ripe, sexy and highly exclusive–the 2016 Booker allocation is the entire point the Reserve List exists. One of the truly great wineries of Paso Robles, Eric Jensen’s renowned estate annually produces some of the most elusive treasures for collectors of Californian wine. Always averaging between 96 to 100 points each vintage, these wines always hit the ball out of the park–for the critics and their huge loyal following. Just take a look at Jeb Dunnuck’s monster scores below! The name Booker comes from the two...

    The greatest gift Italy continues to provide us is not the singular and rare bottles from Barolo or Brunello, it is the “common” bottles such as Rovellotti’s humble and inspired Nebbiolo “Valplazza.” Offering much more material than its price suggests, Rovellotti’s soulful Nebbiolo leaves little to be desired: sweet red cherries, freshly torn roses, tar and mineral … “Valplazza” is intense, surprisingly elegant and addictively persistent. It’s a wine that epitomizes you why you keep coming back to Italian wine. Although not a well-known entity (on American shores at least) Rovellotti is a giant to be reckoned with and deserves...

    Look, I’ll be honest. We don’t sell enough Northern Rhône here. Some of the blame rests with me, I suppose. But, to be frank, you all just do not buy enough Northern Rhône. We sell oceans of Burgundy and Bordeaux; Barolo, Barbaresco and Tuscan wines also sell briskly, but not at the same pace as Burgundy and Bordeaux. California Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot all have a strong following, as do Germany and Spain. But Northern Rhône barely registers on the sales records at the end of the year. Simply put, this is madness...

    Bordeaux List
    Sauternes remains perhaps the fine wine region capable of delivering the most ridiculously brilliant quality to price ratio anywhere in the world. Consider this, here we have a wine from a five hundred year old estate, a first growth in Bordeaux’s 1855 classification (equal to Lafite, Latour, Mouton, Margaux and Haut Brion), from one of the most magnificent vintages in the history of Bordeaux, a wine that scores 95 from Wine Advocate, 96 from James Suckling, 94 from Wine Enthusiast, and 95 from Wine Spectator. A château with a world class pedigree, and a wine that is almost unbelievably...

    We don’t need to “sell” HdV. It’s DRC in California. Literally. The venture between the Hyde Family of Napa Valley and the legendary de Villaine Family of Burgundy (of Domaine Romanée-Conti) has always cast a wide net, making California collectors lust and Burgundy enthusiast swoon. Of course the standard here is very high - this is the family that makes DRC, after all. Thus, the wines, across the board, are excellent - stylish, suave and complex - and, naturally, delicious. But they’re also accessible - both in regards price and quantity. When’s the last time you had DRC...

    You know a wine will be good when the Wine Director uses more expletives than family friendly words to present it to you. That was my introduction to François Chidaine’s simple but highly impressive 2017 Touraine Rouge, a gluggable monster that may cause you some public embarrassment. Don’t say we didn’t warn you–after tasting it, you may swear out loud, too. It seems Mr. Chidaine, already one of the Loire’s most revered white wine makers, is hell bent on making a mark on the...

    There are a lot of reasons to buy this wine. First things first: this is impeccably aged, perfectly mature with 12 years of bottle age and not once has the wine moved from the Domaine. Second, the estate is a French icon, with some of the most impressive holdings in one of France’s most legendary appellations. Lastly, it is brought in by one of America’s greatest importers. Beyond all of this, it is spectacularly delicious - savory and full, yet mineral and racy, with a complexity totally unique in...

    Burgundy list
    I would like to call Ben Leroux' wines “Domaine,” rather than négociant. I know, technically, it's not correct. After all, Benjamin only owns a small passel of his own vines, but he farms the vines himself or works only with growers who adhere to and follow the same strict demands he employed himself at Comte Armand, namely lutte raisonnée or biodynamism. There are no herbicides or pesticides employed in any of the vineyards and the rows are ploughed by horse. At present, more than 50% of the vineyards he exploits are certified organic or biodynamic. Suffice to say, after his star turn with...
