Magic in Meursault
2018 Pierre Boisson Grands Charrons

The Boisson family makes Meursault exactly as we like it: intensely mineral, nervy, and with perfectly-judged richness. 

The Grands Charrons is always one of the high points of the lineup. 

"In a word, lovely" -Burghound
2019 De Montille Saint Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly

Saint Aubin's 1er Cru En Remilly is a go-to for many Burgundy fanatics. The site pulls in everyone from collectors to value seekers. Not many other places offer white Burgundies at this level for this price. After all, En Remilly sits just behind the Grand Cru, Le Montrachet.

Wine of the Year #3: Bobby's Pick
2020 Chacra Chardonnay

The combined efforts of Piero Incisa della Rochetta and Jean-Marc Roulot have really paid off. Hailing from Argentina's Patagonia region, the 2020 Chardonnay is simply a tour de force irrespective of geographic qualifiers. This is not great Southern Hemisphere Chardonnay. It's world-class Chardonnay.

Wine of the Year #2: Ian's Pick
2019 Bachelet-Monnot Puligny-Montrachet

These are revelatory expressions of Burgundy. The amount of finesse and luminous mineral precision that they are able to tease out is astonishing. 

Showstopping Champagne
2014 Laherte Freres Les Empreintes Extra Brut

Laherte's Empreintes is among the most impressive and eye-opening Champagnes we've tasted this year. Over the past handful of years, Laherte has emerged as one of the most talented growers in Champagne.

In Top Form Revisited
2017 Jacques Carillon Puligny-Montrachet

The 2017 Puligny is a really beautiful vintage for the wine. It is vibrant, finely etched, and supremely elegant. It's very rare that a villages wine has this much class and sophistication.

Lowest Price: 2019 White Burgundy Sweet Spot
2019 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon

By all accounts, Leflaive's 2019s are some of the top white Burgundies of the vintage. The wines have showstopping elegance, incredible complexity, and serious cut and structure. The total package is jaw-dropping.

Hitting On All Cylinders:
2019 Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis

It wouldn't be out of line to say that Pierre-Yves Colin's work in St. Aubin has been crucial in establishing the domaine's cult status. This speaks volumes about how impressive his work in St. Aubin is. Colin has holdings in Grand Crus and top 1er Crus, yet savvy buyers hunt the En Remilly bottlings down with the same fervor as the Chevalier-Montrachet.

Hiding In Plain Sight Revisited
2018 Pierre Boisson Auxey-Duresses Blanc

Boisson's work in Auxey-Duresses has been "hiding in plain sight". Their Auxey-Duresses Blanc shows a similar tension and cut that makes their Auxey 1er Cru En Reugne so thrilling.

White Burgundy
Colin-Morey, Coche-Dury, De Moor, Lamy-Caillat, Lafon & More

"Nicely Delineated" - Burghound
2017 Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne-Montrachet

Moreau's wines are explosive, rigorously sculpted, and above all, pure. I'm always taken by their pristine high-toned gracefulness.

"Offers very fine quality for its level"
2017 Tribut Chablis

Tribut's 2017 collection has the richness and presence of the vintage with an intense, salty, Chablisienne minerality coursing through it. They epitomize what makes the 2017 Chablis vintage so magic.

"This is excellent" -Burghound
2017 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre

Lafon has never been better. Along with Roulot and Coche-Dury, Lafon is the standard-bearer of Meursault. His 2017s show this benchmark in top form.

Back Up The Truck - Chablis Edition:
2016 Tribut Chablis

It's not easy. Finding Tribut in quantity is always difficult, but it's even worse in 2016 - production was down considerably.  

"What a wine!"
2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé

At this point, it's clear that the 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé will go down as one of the absolute greats of all time.

Making Its Own Category:
2015 Coche-Dury Bourgogne Aligoté

2017 Paul Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet

Pillot’s wines stand out for their unmatched purity and crystalline character.

"It's no secret that Lamy has been on a roll"
2017 Lamy St. Aubin La Princée

Lamy's holdings in St. Aubin make up the heart and soul of the estate. They have holdings in all of the top sites - Chatenière, En Remilly, and Les Murgers des Dents de Chien. However, Lamy also has holdings in fascinating sites throughout the village of St. Aubin. No producer's lineup offers such an exploration of the St. Aubin. 

"Incredibly refined yet highly seductive"
2016 Dauvissat Chablis Les Preuses

If Les Clos is all muscle and force, Les Preuses will beguile with its finesse. It's a wine of supreme length and clarity, it is a fine-tuned expression of Chablis.

At The Height Of His Powers:
2017 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Baronne

You'd have to look towards Coche and Roulot. In recent vintages, it's become clear that Lafon is at the top of his game.

Brilliant Bourgogne:
2018 Pierre Boisson Bourgogne Blanc

Boisson's Bourgogne Blanc is one of our most popular offerings.

It's a wine of extraordinary clarity, finesse, and unforgettable impact.

Colin-Morey:
St. Aubin to Corton-Charlemagne

The wines of Colin-Morey have cemented their cult status and are held in similar regard as Coche-Dury and Roulot.

In Top Form:
2017 Carillon Puligny-Montrachet

The 2017 Puligny is a really beautiful vintage for the wine. It is vibrant, finely etched, and supremely elegant. It's very rare that a villages wine has this much class and sophistication.

Unbeatable White Burgundy Value
2017 Thierry Pillot Bourgogne Blanc

Thierry Pillot is one of our favorite white Burgundy producers.

One of the things that I enjoy most about Pillot's wines is the incredible quality that they deliver across the range.
