The 2008 delivers a laser-like focus and impeccable class. The balance and harmony flirts with perfection. There's a regal intensity and exhilarating tension.

Cristal's 2002 flaunts a combination of sleek finesse and layered, multifaceted complexity that's absolutely magical.  

The Damned Mountain

François Cotat's Monts Damnés has served as an enduring benchmark of what's possible for Sancerre.

"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.

2018 Roumier Chambolle-Musigny

Every year, I put just as much effort into tracking down Roumier's Chambolle AC as I do his top Grand Crus.

"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.

2017 Lafarge Volnay:
1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs & 1er Cru Clos des Chênes

These two wines dramatize what makes Lafarge so great.

La Fete du Rosé is the real deal.

This gorgeous, classic Provençal wine delivers everything that I want from a serious rosé.

The Incredible Lightness of Beaujolais:
2018 Métras Beaujolais 1ere Mise

We love the basic Beaujolais, not for its grandeur and complexity, but for its lightness, lift, and perfume.

The combination of levity, deliciousness, and fascination is something that very few wines achieve.

I tried to highlight Burgundy's many top white producers ranging from Dauvissat and Raveneau to Coche, Lafon, and Roulot.

The Beating Heart Of Burgundy:
2018 Jouan Chambolle-Musigny & Gevrey-Chambertin "Aux Echezeaux"

Once you adjust to their un-showy wavelength and whispering complexity, it's really easy to become obsessed.

This has become very clear to us. Our Jouan offers have become some of the most popular. 

The Southern Aristocrat - Legend In The Making:
2016 Château Simone Palette Blanc

Château Simone's Blanc is one of the great unsung wines of France. Along with the legendary 2008, Simone's 2016 Blanc seems poised to be one of the greats. In early March, we opened a bottle for the staff to taste blind, and everyone was blown away by it.

Jamet Rarity
2017 Jamet Côtes du Rhône

If you go looking, you won't find a single other listing for 2017 Jamet Côtes du Rhône. This is one of those seriously rare bottles that we search high and low for. The ultimate result is typically a modest few cases.

Back-Vintage Chave
2007 Chave Hermitage Rouge

We always come back to Chave’s Hermitage. It’s one of our favorite wines in the world. Today, I'm very happy to offer a small parcel of sharply priced 2007 Hermitage. 

A Perfectionist Hitting the Mark

Bachelet's Gevrey exists on its own plane. On paper, it's a village-level wine. In reality, it radically transcends the category.

(3 Bottles Each: 160ème Édition & 2004 Vintage)

For the Krug fanatic, and the Champagne obsessed, this is as good as it gets. Here, in a beautiful limited-edition wooden case, you get to witness two vintage snapshots of Krug's beguiling mastery for the lowest price in the country at $1,389.95.

"I found the quality here to be outstanding." -
2016 Drouhin Chambertin Clos de Beze

Drouhin's Clos de Bèze is special wine. One of the best bottles of Burgundy I've ever had was a '71 Drouhin Clos de Bèze.

Knockout Fleurie: 2017 Julien Sunier Fleurie

Julien Sunier has firmly established himself as one of Beaujolais' top young winemakers. Vintage after vintage, Sunier's Fleurie is the star of the line-up.
