"Excellent Aging Potential" -
2008 Comte Armand Pommard
1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux

In any vintage, Comte Armand’s Clos des Epeneaux is one of the great and long-lived wines of the Côte de Beaune. It's absolutely stunning in 2008.

Cult Red Burgundy:
2002 Engel Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Brûlées

For me, Engel represents everything that's mysterious and beautiful in Burgundy.

Magnum Opus
Lowest Price: 2014 Ponsot Clos de la Roche VV Magnums

There's nothing like Ponsot in the entire Côte d'Or. And his Clos de la Roche is one of the great wines of the world.

Cornas Surprise: 2014 Pacalet Cornas

This is Cornas like you've never tasted it before. It's hard to imagine an expression of Cornas so faithful to the appellation, yet so removed from its usual expression.

"Impeccably well-balanced"
2014 d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs

Clos des Ducs is one of my favorite wines. Period. I can't tell you how many times I've been blown away by Clos des Ducs. I've tasted them back to 1920 and the way that they age is simply haunting.

Don't Miss Burgundy Value:
2008 Chandon de Briailles Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets

Along with Clos des Ducs, Caillerets is Volnay's top 1er Cru site. Many Burgundy experts would argue forcefully for its Grand Cru caliber. Today, we're happy to offer a 2008 Caillerets at a price that many current vintage Bourgogne Rouge go for.

Dujac Combottes:

If you were to stand in the 1er Cru Combottes and look around, you'd be surrounding by Grand Crus.

"In a word, marvelous" - Burghound
2014 Fourrier Gevrey Clos St.Jacques

Fourrier's Clos St. Jacques is a legendary, heartbreakingly beautiful bottle. In 2014, the greatness of the wine shines through brilliantly.

At The Top of Their Game
2014 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet

Leflaive's 2014s are easily some of the best wines that we've seen from them in the past decade. Across the board, they have show-stopping elegance, real impact and complexity, and serious cut and structure.

The Perennial Overachiever - Lowest Price:
2014 Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been blown away by a bottle of Drouhin’s Clos des Mouches. It’s a wine that dramatically overachieves. I’ve been at many dinners where an old bottle of Clos des Mouches has outshined many of the Grand Crus at the table. 

"Terrific Energy" - Lowest Price:
2014 Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly

Hubert Lamy's En Remilly is one of the benchmarks for the overacheiving 1er Cru. The 2014 is one of the strongest examples we've tasted in a very long time. It was clear from the start that 2014 White Burgundy was something special. As the wines have had a little time to evolve, it's become clear that it's an absolutely stunning vintage.

Back Up The Truck: Burgundy Edition -
2014 Hudelot-Noellat Bourgogne Rouge

Hudelot-Noëllat's Bourgogne Rouge may be the greatest sub-$30 Burgundy value. Since Charles Van Canneyt's arrival at the estate and the soaring quality that resulted, the Bourgogne Rouge has become a core wine here.

“Superb precision and cut” -
2014 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Champans

D’Angerville’s Champans has an extraordinary track record for aging. Every time we have the opportunity to drink old Champans it’s an amazing experience. We’ve had bottles with fifty years of age that were still gorgeously fresh and completely stunning.

Iconic Burgundy - Lowest Price:
2014 Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche

There are many who say that the Marquis de Laguiche parcel is the greatest in all of Montrachet. And when it comes to white wine, Montrachet is easily one of the greatest.

Heartbreaking Purity and Poise:
Drouhin Griotte-Chambertin 2014

Griotte-Chambertin is one of my favorite bottles from Drouhin. Drouhin captures the site with such heartbreaking purity and poise that it’s hard not to be deeply impressed.

"This is a seriously impressive effort " - 2014 Ponsot Clos de Vougeot VV

Laurent Ponsot is one of the most singular, compelling minds in all of Burgundy.

"Magnificently Pure" - 2005 Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs

It's very likely that the 2005 Clos des Ducs will go down as one of the greatest examples ever. It's an epic wine.

Rare Sighting - Mature White Burgundy:
1982 Potel Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Combettes

Combettes is one of my favorite of Puligny's 1er Crus. And when you combine that with the '82 White Burgundy vintage, I snapped up this parcel quickly. What I love about Combettes is how it combines a tightly wound stony core with a rich, floral accented presence. It also struts the intangible breed that top 1er Cru White Burgundy possesses. 

Mugnier Shining Bright:
2014 Mugnier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale

While Mugnier's entire line-up is stunning, over the past few vintages the intersection of price and quality in the Maréchale has gone off the charts. Because of this, we make it a point to offer it every vintage. 

Under-the-Radar Lafarge
2013 Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Sélectionnées

The Vendanges Sélectionnées may be the hidden gem of Lafarge’s line-up. I'm happy to offer the 2013 Volnay VS at the lowest price around. 

Only The Essential:
2013 Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru La Chatenière

Colin-Morey's are the purest and most intense expressions of Chardonnay around. The 2013s brought the domaine's clarity and precision to the next level. When they were first released, I bought every bottle of the 2013 PYCM that I could get my hands on. I jumped at the chance to reload on the St. Aubin Chatenière.

Punching Above Its Weight Class: 2014 Lafarge Volnay

This is one of my best scores of the year. There are times when I can imagine drinking nothing besides Lafarge. The wines are brimming with soul, finesse and fascination.

1996 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles

Leflaive's '96s are legendary. It's as simple as that Over the past six months, we've tasted a handful of Leflaive's '96s. They've been stunning. Without a doubt, one of the best bottles we tasted was the Pucelles. 

On Another Plane: 2014 Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin VV

The perennial theme with Fourrier is pristine expression, precise finesse and an ultra-seductive mineral-laden texture. In 2014, this shines through brilliantly.
