A Clutch of Châteauneufs at World-Beating Pricing
Look, I’ll be blunt. There’s not much of these to go around, and at these prices, I don’t think they’ll last very long. Top estates. Top vintages. Lowest prices you will ever find. Do the math - yeah, no matter how you add it up, these will sell out. Mas de Boizlauzon and Bosquet du Pape have been leaders in Châteauneuf for decades, producing traditionally styled, rich wines of great power and intensity. 2015 and 2016 were twin vintages of true exceptional quality. That we can offer these wines at these prices is an opportunity that doesn’t come around often.Learn more

The Real Deal: 94 pt. CA Chard at 34% Off!!!

Failla is one of California’s finest addresses, even though it was founded relatively recently. Then again, when it’s the brain-child of Ehren Jordan, it’s a big deal. Who’s Ehren Jordan , you ask? Well, let’s just say he had a hand in putting the Turley winery on the map, serving as winemaker and general manager for over 18 years. Failla is not about high-powered Zinfandels, however. Rather, the focus here is on balanced Chardonnays and Pinots from the best sites in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino. You would expect a gambit with as big a legacy behind it to garner praise at first, but since its founding Failla...Learn more
Legendary: 1947, 1959 and now 2018 - The Unmissable 2018 Huet Release
Considered one of the most sacred of all Loire estates, Domaine Huet is poised to deliver their most memorable off-dry vintages in decades. Their 2018 release of off-dry and sweet wines are being compared by many to the legendary 1947 and 1959 vintages – and the excitement could not be higher. Huet wines are some of France's – perhaps the world's – longest-lasting whites, with bottles from the 1940’s still drinking beautifully now. Even the oldest Loire growers can’t remember a vintage like 2018. Summer was...Learn more
2016 Chevillon - “Genuinely Exceptional”

2016 Chevillon - “Genuinely Exceptional”

Posted on: 5/16/2019 10:58 AM

I don’t know what to say about Domaine Robert Chevillon that hasn’t already been said. Simply put, this is one of the finest Domaines in all of Burgundy. Sumptuous, rich and powerful wines that nonetheless deliver the balance, finesse and terroir expression that is the signature of great Burgundy. Allen Meadows’ exuberance sums it up nicely: “Chevillon rarely misses, indeed I would describe the domaine as one of the most consistent in all of Burgundy. … Thus it won't surprise readers to see me extol the quality of the domaine's 2016s are they are genuinely exceptional across...Learn more
Bring It on Home: “Simply Extraordinary” 2016 Isole e Olena Cepparello
Easily one of the truly great wines of the world, Paolo de Marchi’s masterful Cepparello is the gold standard for Sangiovese. Recently awarded a stellar 94 to 97 points by Antonio Galloni, this 2016 is one for the ages. Why? The superb quality of the vintage. Like other parts of Europe, 2016 is uniformly excellent. In Tuscany, while yields were down, it was a balanced growing season leading to wines of sublime harmony, perfumed aromatics and downright brilliant energy. Bring that favorable growing season into the...Learn more
Saxum For the Rest of Us: 2016 Villa Creek High Road James Berry Vineyard
While we would all love to drink a bottle of Saxum–one of the most sought-after cult wines in America–reality has other ideas. If you are lucky enough to find their single-vineyard expressions, you’re paying handsomely for it (easily $150 plus). That’s why we’re so happy to offer the excellent 2016 Villa Creek High Road James Berry Vineyard. It’s Saxum for the rest us. Based in the limestone hills just west of Paso Robles (and just an 8 minute drive down the road from Saxum) JoAnn and Cris Cherry’s Villa Creek Cellars has been considered...Learn more
“Do We Really Need White Burgundy?” 97 Pt 2017 Kumeu River Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay
Decanter’s Tina Gellie participated in a blind tasting with Kumeu going up against legendary estates Leflaive, Lafon, Sauzet, Drouhin, Girardin and Niellon. She reported back: “It was a fascinating tasting, with Kumeu River a clear winner in three of the four flights.” Whether you agree with the white Burgundy comparisons or not, one thing is for certain: this is not minor league baseball here. Kumeu, deservedly so, is performing in the big leagues. And for the money they are asking for, they are knocking...Learn more
Discovery of the Year? Crazy Good Grower Bubbles for Short Money: Seriously. Buy These

If there is a downside to this, it’s that there’s a lot of...Learn more

So Much to Say: Oddero 2015 and 2013, 2009, 2006

One of the oldest and most important growers in Barolo, Oddero is a certified Piemonte icon. Their thirty-five hectares of historical holdings reads like a Greatest Hits collection: Bussia in Monforte d’Alba, Brunate in La Morra, the legendary Vigna Rionda in Serralunga, Villero in Castiglione Falletto, and Gallina in Neive. We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of their very special 2015 pre-arrival from this estate. 2015– a hugely important year for Piedmont–produced exceptional Barolo. Even more so, critic and Piedmont specialist Antonio Galloni has sung rapturous praise on this new 2015 release of the Oddero estate:Learn more
Hot Damn: 2009 Señorío de P. Peciña Gran Reserva Rioja
Welcome back, old friend. Hermanos Peciña, one the pillars of our Spanish program, has released their triumphant 2009 Gran Reserva. This is only the third Gran Reserva the estate has released since 1998 and just like those other special bottles, the 2009 effortlessly displays why we love traditional old school Rioja – a multidimensional bouquet only ten years of aging could accomplish, creamy red fruits and earthy dark flavors, all resting on sublime layers of soft, mineral textures. For old school Rioja fans, this is a monumental value. In the heart of Rioja Alta, set against the stone peaks of the Sierra...Learn more
