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. 

The Crown Jewel of the Northern Rhône
1995 & 2000 Chave Hermitage

I'm going to keep this short. Over the years, we've made our feelings about Chave clear. These are some of the greatest wines in the world. Today, I'm very happy to offer two back-vintages of Chave that could serve as bookends of Chave's stylistic range and testaments the profundity of Chave's Hermitage. 

Cote Rotie: Raw, Untamed, Beautiful Revisited
- 2016 Levet Côte-Rôtie La Chavaroche

When it comes to unyieldingly honest and unapologetically traditional Côte-Rôtie, Levet's wines are without peer. Levet's Chavaroche has long been one of the smartest buys for your cellar, especially when it comes to steadfastly traditional northern Rhône wine.

Rare Chave: 2010 Chave Saint-Joseph

It's very rare that we can offer back-vintages of Chave's Saint-Joseph. It's unfortunate because we've had great experiences with bottles of Chave's Saint-Joseph after decades of age.

2017 Gonon Saint-Joseph

The amount of gracefulness that Gonon is able to coax from the hills of Saint-Joseph is extraordinary. It's no wonder that the wines have gone cult.

New Talent in the Northern Rhône:
2017 Domaine de l'Iserand Saint-Joseph Les Sabots de Coppi

The northern Rhône has become an obsession of ours and we're constantly scouting out fresh talent. It's very rare that we find a relative new comer that checks all the boxes when it comes to value, purity and sheer honesty.

2016 Chave St-Joseph

Along with Pierre Gonon, Chave produces our favorite expression of St. Joseph. Chave's St. Joseph is something that we go deep on every vintage.

2000 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

The only prudent thing to do is to keep this offer brief. This has all the markings of something that will sell out in a flash.

Jamet Rarity, Only Bottles in the U.S. -
2016 Jamet Cote-Rotie Half-Bottles

Jamet's Côte-Rôties have few peers in the entire Northern Rhône. It's pretty much that simple. They are amazingly elegant, precise and clear.

Honest, Untamed, Beautiful:
2016 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

When it comes to truly authentic, old-school Côte-Rôtie, Levet’s wines have no peers. These wines reflect the pure and rugged honesty of the terroir. They are a completely genuine expression of Syrah: unapologetically wild and beautifully complex.

Côte-Rôtie In Full Glory Revisited: 2016 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

The heights that Jamet's Côte-Rôties reach have few peers in the entire Northern Rhône. Jamet hits a level of gracefulness and agility that is reminiscent of Burgundy. This is Côte-Rôtie in full glory, flaunting a poised and detailed expression of minerals, herbs, spice, savory elements and florality. The aromatics simply soar.

Old-School Northern Rhône - Breakout Vintage:
2016 Lionnet Cornas Terre Brulée

Lionnet's wines are uncompromisingly honest and wild expressions of the Northern Rhône. Neal Rosenthal was introduced to Lionnet by his Côte-Rôtie producer, Bernard Levet. Levet is certainly a good jumping off point for getting a sense of Lionnet's wines.

Rarer Than Rare: 2016 Gonon Saint-Joseph Magnums

If you search for Gonon magnums in any vintage, anywhere in the world, you will find two listings. I feel very fortunate to be able to offer magnums. However, I should frame your expectations from the outset. They are very limited. I wouldn't imagine offering these were it not a Sunday during a holiday weekend.

Cornas From On High: 2016 Gilles Cornas "Nouvelle R" Les Rieux

Guillaume Gilles is one of the most exciting young, traditionally oriented producers in the entire Northern Rhône. Gilles worked at Chave and Robert Michel. The latter is one of the grand old legends of the Northern Rhône and where Thierry Allemand began his winemaking career.

"Grab northern Rhône 2015 reds with both hands” - 2015 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

The heights that Jamet's Côte-Rôties reach have few peers in the entire Northern Rhône. It's pretty much that simple. They are amazingly elegant, precise and clear.

The Utter Beauty of Côte Rôtie: 2016 Gerard Côte Rôtie

Last weekend, we offered Gerard's 2017 St. Joseph Blanchard. As expected, it sold out in a few hours. Today, we turn to the 2016 Côte Rôtie.  It's Gerard's work in Côte Rôtie and Condrieu that represents the beating heart of the domaine.

"Drinks way above its category” 2010 Chave St-Joseph Offerus

The 2010 Offerus might just be the best vintage we’ve tasted so far this century. We recently tasted through several vintages of Chave’s St-Joseph Offerus and the 2010 was shockingly good.

St. Joseph Sweet Spot:
2017 Gerard St. Joseph Le Blanchard

For the past two years, Gerard's St. Joseph Le Blanchard has sold out in a matter of hours. We first tasted the 2014 vintage and were blown away by the wine's bright, complex aromatics and lifted elegance.

"Straight-up awesome purity of fruit" - 2016 Chave Hermitage Blanc

In the world of white wine, Chave’s Hermitage Blanc stands alone. Chave’s Hermitage are among the greatest wines in the world.

Back Up The Truck: Northern Rhône Edition:
2016 Entrefaux Crozes-Hermitage

Northern Rhone at this quality and price is practically unheard of. Over the past several years, interest in this region has exploded, and prices have risen to match. Producers like Juge and Allemand have skyrocketed, selling for hundreds of dollars per bottle.

Cote Rotie: Raw, Untamed, Beautiful - 2016 Levet Côte-Rôtie La Chavaroche

When it comes to unyieldingly honest and unapologetically traditional Côte-Rôtie, Levet's wines are without peer. Levet's Chavaroche has long been one of the smartest buys for your cellar, especially when it comes to steadfastly traditional Northern Rhône wine.

Côte-Rôtie In Full Glory: 2016 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

Jamet's Côte-Rôties are long standing benchmarks of the Northern Rhône. We're going to keep this short. The heights that their Côte-Rôties reach have few peers in the entire Northern Rhône.

A Northern Rhône For The Ages - 2016 Clape Cornas

Clape's Cornas reveals something essential about the appellation. The wines are pillars of Cornas and I buy them whenever I have the chance.

2016 Gonon Saint-Joseph: Cult Northern Rhône

What the Gonon brothers have achieved on the steep granite slopes of Saint-Joseph is amazing. In Northern Rhône, Saint-Joseph was thought to be a distant fourth behind Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie and Cornas.
