Burgundy Elite Languishing in Plain Sight

Burgundy Elite Languishing in Plain Sight

Posted on: 9/5/2019 11:11 AM

$1050. That’s the average price of Cecile Tremblay’s 2015 Chapelle Chambertin. One of the most in-demand growers in Burgundy these days, Tremblay has attracted global attention and demand, with wines that are succulent, delicately fragrant, yet powerfully rich. Production is exceedingly small, and there’s nothing from the winery that can be found for under $150. And, yes, that includes the Bourgogne. Sure, she has attractive holdings under vine - the aforementioned Chapelle-Chambertin, Vosne 1er Beauxmonts, Morey Très Girard, Chambolle 1er Feusselottes, et al. - and she is...Learn more
Best von der Fels ever? 2018 Keller

Best von der Fels ever? 2018 Keller

Posted on: 9/4/2019 1:41 PM

Let the race begin! One of the most popular and crazy values we offer, German super-star Klaus Peter Keller’s von der Fels Riesling is back for the much hyped 2018 vintage. Produced from young vines in his Grand Cru vineyards, there is no other wine, besides maybe Lauer’s “Senior”, that offers so much incredible material for such a low price. Everyone who loves wine deserves to experience this absurd deal. 2018 has already been labeled as one of the greatest vintages ever in Germany. Stephen Bitterholf, the importer for Keller, has made the interesting point that much of this is because of how perfect...Learn more
96 pts.: 2015 Barolos from the Legendary Conterno Fantino
Established in 1982 by dear friends Guido Fantino and Claudio Conterno, Conterno Fantino is one of the most prized estates in all of Piedmont. Overlooking the ancient village of Montforte d'Alba, this benchmark estate is famous for a blockbuster show of structure, tannin and rich, intricately layered textures of mineral and fruit. It’s a blend of the old and the new – a respect for tradition with an uncanny knack for innovation – that has propelled the estate into the hearts of Barolo collectors worldwide. The nucleus of the estate is their flagship Ginestra, a hugely historical vineyard for Barolo, documented as...Learn more
It’s Back: The Impeccable 2018 Leirana Albariño
Just a mere stone’s throw from the Atlantic, lifelong viticulturist Rodrigo Mendez’s garage winery, Forjas del Salnés, produces an outstanding collection of wines born from his family’s old vines in Rías Baixas. With consultation from Spanish superstar Raúl Pérèz, this small estate has blossomed into one of Spain’s most compelling success stories. Today we’re focusing on the newest vintage of a long-time store favorite, their terrific Leirana Albariño. Impeccably balanced and beautifully concentrated, the 2018 Leirana is precise, lively, salty and pure with impressive intensity. One of, if not the most, complete and impressive...Learn more
The Quintessence of Classicism in Chambolle: 2016 Francois Bertheau
Sometimes I am embarrassed at just how much great wine moves through this store. So much that, to be honest, you can forget about remarkable parcels. Such is the case with the soon-to-arrive 2016 wines from Francois Bertheau. Bertheau makes absolutely breathtaking wines of precision, finesse and delicacy. Looking for power and intense concentration, look elsewhere. Bertheau’s wines are limpid and bright, delicate and floral, subtle and graceful - in short, they represent the quintessence of...Learn more
“The Ambassador in Many Ways for Zen-like Chablis”
Gilbert Picq is a house favorite. So treasured are the Domaine’s wines that I have a standing order to be alerted whenever the next round is available and want whatever comes to the state - even if it’s 100 cases - delivered directly to the store. As there was a changing of the guard at the distributor in regards to who the portfolio manager was, that is exactly what happened, without any advanced notice at all! Nonetheless, I was very happy to see several huge piles of Picq Chablis in our cellar! You will be happy too to have them in yours! Sure, the gold standard for Chablis is Raveneau and Dauvissat, masters of...Learn more

It’s Back: 2015 Baby Haut Brion. $16, 91 Points.
Clarendelle speaks for itself. $19 Bordeaux made by the team behind the legendary Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion, including declassified fruit both of these sacred estates is never going to be a hard sell. However, throw in a stupidly good vintage like 2015 and the fact that unusually even for Clarendelle I’m told that 100% of the fruit this year comes from Pessac Leognan itself. Top it off with a 91 point score from James Suckling and a recommendation from Neal Martin that… “This is well worth seeking out in terms of value and pleasure”. Highly recommended declassified Pessac Leognan...Learn more
Changing the Narrative: An Untraditional Source for a Delicious Late Season Rosé
We’re good friends with the Barton family of St. Julien fame, owners of the celebrated Ch. Léoville-Barton and Langoa-Barton. The patriarch of the family, Anthony Barton, is a legend in the wine world. One of the most charismatic and dynamic figures of the 20th century in wine, he played a large role in writing the modern history of Bordeaux, all while producing successive vintages of spectacular wine. Today the family business is being run by Lilian, Anthony’s daughter, and increasingly Damien...Learn more
STOP EVERYTHING - This is BIG: You Need CASES!!! 95 Pt. "Viña Ardanza” Pre-Arrival
Armed with three hundred hectares of estate-owned vineyards, their own cooperage, and a century-old winery holding 51,000 casks and 6.4 million bottles stored at any one time–the equivalent of roughly 8 years of sales–of course La Rioja Alta is considered one of the grand jewels of Spain. Unsurprisingly, the wines are made in the traditional Rioja manner. Everything is harvested by hand. Fermentation comes naturally. Malolactic is never sped up, concluding when it naturally finishes. The wines are never filtered before...Learn more
