New Release: One 2015 Margaux to End Them All?
If any of you have been following the 2015 Bordeaux vintage, from when we first offered the wines as futures in the summer of 2016, to the recent lavish praise for the in-bottle wines (which we’ll start taking delivery off around June) from the wine press- you will have seen that a vast amount of the attention has been focused on Margaux. From Neal Martin “In 2015 I would be setting my sights on the rejuvenated appellation of Margaux”, Antonio Galloni “Readers will find a bevy of spectacular wines in Margaux in 2015” James Molesworth in the Wine Spectator “If you were to stick to just one appellation...Learn more

Twelve Year Old St Estephe from Capbern at under $30
The Château formerly known as Capbern Gasgueston, now simply ‘Capbern’, has been seriously hot property in Bordeaux in recent years. Both it and its brother property Calon Segur were two of the most sought-after releases of the 2016 futures. Capbern sold out in Bordeaux in a flash, and Calon Segur was like gold dust- released at $87.99 and now selling in the States for double that only 6 months later.

“The quality here was exceptionally good”: 2015 de Montille
We were lucky to be visited by Etienne de Montille last week and taste through a selection of some of the 2015s.

The de Montille family is Burgundy royalty - even if they never made another bottle of wine. The history of this prominent family figures quite large in the history of Burgundy. However, lucky for us, they continue to produce among Burgundy’s greatest wines in every vintage.Learn more

The $20, 93 Point “Petrus of the Côtes de Francs” Load up!!
While Château Marsau sits in the not very widely known right bank appellation of Côtes de Francs, the Petrus comparison isn’t just hyperbole. Marsau’s vineyards are atop a clay outcrop, with 12 hectares of thirty five year old vines including a portion on the precious and rare ‘blue clay’ that appears in Petrus and almost nowhere else. We tasted their 2015 during our week in Bordeaux tasting the 2017s from barrel, and we were blown away by it. While it’s a small production wine, we managed to dig ourselves up a healthy parcel at a hot price, for good measure including half bottles and magnums.Learn more
