Miani's Friulano takes Friuli’s indigenous grape and creates an elegantly woven tapestry of ripe stone fruits, flowers and rocky minerality. If you're looking for evidence of how Miani is "without peer," the way he handles Friulano drives this home. No expression of this grape hits the intensity or layered complexity of Miani.

What I love about the '96 is how classically proportioned it is and how vibrant it is. I remember tasting the '96s early in my career. They already had some bottle age, but still came off a little stern and unyielding (as classic Bordeaux should). I've been amazed at how the wines have blossomed in the bottle since - they've developed a beautiful complexity.

The estates don’t pull any punches with their selections for the auction. The bottles represent some of the most magical wines in their cellars and the pinnacle of the vintage.

I can't remember a vintage of Fichet's Tesson that didn't leave me deeply impressed. Regardless of the year, it's always incredibly complex with an undeniable grandeur to its saturating presence.

When it comes to Sancerre, Cotat's village of Chavignol is a very special place. Chavignol is absolutely defined by its terroir: Kimmeridgian marl (the same soil as parts of Chablis) that imbues the wine with Chablis-like minerality. With age, it's the terroir that comes to dominate with a blatant minerality.

The 2012 Bourgogne Rouge is the complete package. It's a particularly elegant version of a wine that is never lacking in that quality. It also boasts a particular punch and harmony. Bright, clear fruits with layers of spice and soil precede an outstanding long tapering finish.

2013 is not a powerful vintage for Beaujolais and we really like it exactly that way. There's a beautiful clarity and energy to the vintage. Both contribute to a supremely delicious and fascinating cast of wines. Of course, it's no surprise that Lapierre thrived in these conditions.

The sexy marketing line for Boisson is that Pierre Boisson is friends with Jean-François Coche's son, Raphael. There are some parallels that are worth mentioning. First, their line-up from Aligoté to their top wines are stunning. Like Coche, Boisson makes very good red wines that cruise under-the-radar. I really wanted to offer a range here to introduce just how good everything they produce is.

Dujac is one of Burgundy's hallowed elites. In their hands, Combottes hits stunning levels of refinement and clarity of expression. In 2012, Combottes is incredibly beautiful. There's a whispering complexity, a pitch-perfect expression of minerality and an outrageous elegance. Much of what I love about Burgundy can be found in this bottle.

The beauty of Lauer's 2013 Auction Kabinett is the extraordinary fine-ness and crystal clear presentation of the region’s slate-y elegance, rather than an overwhelming intensity. Undoubtedly, Lauer's Auction is one of the top Kabinetts of the vintage. Florian Lauer considers the 2013 to be one of the greatest Kabinetts they've ever produced.
