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
Stunning Value 2009 Bordeaux Hidden Gem: Right Bank, Right Price!
As I return from a week tasting the 2018s (watch this space for my initial vintage report), it’s my pleasure today to go ten years back to the vintage that could be said to have launched the modern era of Bordeaux. When we talk about how good a young vintage like 2016 or 2018 is and can be- 2009 remains the standard against which to compare. Widely acclaimed straight off the bat, the fervor really started in December 2011 when Robert Parker gave a staggering eighteen wines the perfect...Learn more

Sweetly Spiced Orchard Fruit for the Fall: 2016 Bechtold Pinot Gris Silberberg
It’s Fall which means we have officially arrived in Pinot Gris season.The heavier, richer flavors of Autumn gives us the best opportunity to savor and appreciate one of the least understood and recognized noble grapes being produced today, Pinot Gris. Our favorite – both in taste and value – is Jean-Marie Bechtold’s 2016 Silberberg. Sweetly spiced apples, stone fruits, almonds and a touch of cream are etched inside a cushioned, soft, just off-dry, body… Silberberg’s plush interior and a whisper of residual...Learn more
Zero Horseplay Here: Sexy Collectible Cuvées From Courdert!
I’ve been handed the Burgundy List reigns for one express reason: to pontificate a set of wines that every Burgundy drinker should not be without, Alain Coudert’s iconic Clos de la Roilette. Most of you are familiar with how much we adore these wines. But I wanted to bring special attention to how much our own Burgundy buyer, the man who pens this list himself, loves Roilette. Yes, that’s right, the king of Burgundy, Ian Halbert, has publicly admitted: “As a wine professional, I often field questions about what I drink at home on a Wednesday night. More often...Learn more
94 Point, $18 “Pinot”: Spanish New Wave Sensation
It’s one of the most common stories told today: overlooked appellations, written off by elitists to be produce sub-par wine, is invigorated and brought to life by young, passionate winemakers, thereby turning the world’s opinion upside down. It’s my favorite story, one that never gets old. While Grenache’s historical/spiritual home may be in the South of France, it’s exciting future rests in Spain’s hands. Specifically, the hands and work of Fernando Garcia, who together with Dani Landi, are the creative forces behind Comando G. These two have completely redefined what great Garnacha can be, turning an...Learn more

While we recently offered and sold these wines back in August, the appetite and desire for them is simply enormous–as they should be. This is one of the hottest and most sought-after estates in California. 2016 was a terrific year for Sonoma. “2016 marks a return to a much more relaxed, growing season with ideal conditions for making wines endowed with energy, freshness and delineation that provide a striking foil to California’s natural...Learn more

This is a hot one, ladies and gentlemen! Domaine des Comtes Lafon is an icon of Burgundy.

This is their magnificent value third wine, made in the same winery and produced from the same extraordinary terroir as the Grand Vin, the 2015 of which sells for a little under $200.
