Undervalued 2010 St Julien Classified Growth...
Most of the Bordeaux that I offer on this list are either futures, or mature and ready to drink vintages. There’s a third category of wines that I like to come back to from time to time though, those that are “about to be ready”. These are often really smart buys, as you’re not tying up your capital and storage space to keep things for the really long term, but you’re also not paying the premium for something fully aged and ready to go. There tends to be a notable spike in a wine’s retail price once it crosses the line between nearly ready and ready, so it’s a good idea to jump in a little early when...Learn more
Joya de la Corona: 100 & 98 pt  2016 Catena Zapata
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...Learn more
Hiding in Plain Sight: 2015 Domaine du Collier

Hiding in Plain Sight: 2015 Domaine du Collier

Posted on: 9/24/2019 3:32 PM

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...Learn more
Coche, Roulot, Ente, Lafon … Jobard?

Coche, Roulot, Ente, Lafon … Jobard?

Posted on: 9/24/2019 11:21 AM

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...Learn more
