Just Landed: Insane 2016 “Hudelot-Noellat” Value Case Buys
“Innovation” is a funny word in Burgundy, because it often implies very small departures from previous generations. So, too, at Hudelot-Noellat, where Charles has improved upon Alain’s exacting perfectionism with some techniques very much in vogue these days at cult addresses, such as Fourrier, Pacalet and Bachelet. The core remains the same: systematic selection massale replanting in the vineyards to retain very old vines, planted at high density; destemming and 5-6 day cold soak macerations before natural yeast fermentations; followed by 18-months in oak before bottling...Learn more
MULTIPLE CASE BUY ALERT:  2010 Right Bank Bordeaux - Outrageous $15 Value
2010 is a vintage almost beyond belief for Bordeaux. Described at the time by one of the world’s foremost experts on the region, Steven Spurrier, as ‘the best vintage of my lifetime’. Personally I think the very young 2016 will at least give it a good run for its money, but other than that, I would agree with Mr Spurrier, 2010 is the finest vintage of Bordeaux that I have seen. While the top wines are still improving, I’ve written before that this is the time to be loading up on ‘value’ 2010s. Almost certainly the last time...Learn more
With Depth and Delicacy: 2014 Monsecco Pratogrande Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo
A pillar of Neal Rosenthal’s portfolio, Monsecco has been around since 1758. Revived in 1993 by Giorgio Zanetta, whose family has a long history of producing wine in the Alto Piemonte, the Monsecco wines are classical, openhearted expressions that balance their serious, reserved nature with plainspoken detail and subtlety. No flashiness or sex-appeal needed here, the wines rely on their own strength at transmitting terroir. That terroir is the massif of Monte Rosa in the Upper Piedmont, where Monsecco’s twenty-five year...Learn more
LIMITED: “One of the best Chardonnays in the world” 2017 Kumeu River Estate Charddonay.
Few Chardonnay producers have developed as much hot acclaim and excitement as New Zealand’s Kumeu River. Their superb 2017 estate Chardonnay (one of their finest in years) wastes no time in impressing you, showcasing unbelievable class and distinction for under $30. There is no question that if this was white Burgundy, the price would be twice as much. Luckily, it’s not. For newcomers, it’s time you experience the estate Neal Martin describes as “amongst the very best Chardonnay producers in the world.”Learn more

“Serious, old school and age-worthy whites”: 2017 Pierre Morey - The Man Behind Domaine Leflaive
It is true that Pierre Morey, alongside Anne-Claude Leflaive, was the mastermind behind the renaissance of the region’s most famous and important white wine producer’s return to excellence in the late 80’s. First, Pierre helped transition the vineyards over to biodynamics, and then he revamped the entire regime in the cellar. For the next 20 years, until today, Leflaive was universally held as the greatest producer of white Burgundy in the region, with the wines commanding incredible prices on the market.Learn more

The Original CA Cult Classic: 97-100 pt. 2016 Joseph Pehlps Insignia
There’s not much to say about Insignia that hasn’t already been said.

Intense, powerful, opulent and concentrated, the great Insignias carry their size with grace, all while offering plenty of hedonistic fruit. 2016 is an epic year in Napa and this year’s Insignia is no different, already garnering huge scores from Parker’s Wine Advocate. Whether you’re new to the game or have a...Learn more
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
