Without Peer Revisited: 2020 Pascal Cotat Chavignol Rosé

The 2020 is an especially vivid and concentrated vintage of the rosé. There's plenty of chalky tension and incredibly pure layered red fruits. 

The Brilliance of PYCM Revisited:
2019 Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot Cuvée Clement et Emma

There's no doubt that Pierre-Yves Colin is making some of the most compelling white Burgundies around.  People hunt the wines down feverishly. There's an enormous amount of excitement over their 2019s.

Lauer Masterpiece - Auction Edition:
2020 Lauer Schonfels Grosses Gewächs Auction Magnums

For years, the chiseled and ruthless Schonfels was for me the pinnacle of what Lauer and the Saar could achieve with dry Riesling. With the 2020, the wine reaches another level.

Portuguese Revelation - Don't Miss:
2017 Niepoort Quinta de Baixo Bairrada Branco VV

The 2017 Quinta de Baixo Bairrada Branco VV has an amazing kinetic energy and polished minerality. I really love the combination of density and razor cut. You get a rush of citrus and deep stoniness. 

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2021 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

The Sans Soufre takes Lapierre's signatures of deliciousness and purity to the next level.

Gem-Like: Historic Vintage
2019 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets

Whenever the 2019 vintage comes up, people always mention d'Angerville as one of the great collections. For Burgundy fanatics, this is a lineup that shouldn't be missed. 

Gracefulness to the Extreme Revisited:
2017 Jouan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

Jouan's Clos Sorbé gets to the beating heart of the domaine like no other wine in the incredibly strong lineup does.

"I especially like the translucent expression of Nebbiolo here."
2018 Castello di Verduno Barbaresco Rabajà-Bas

This was the star of a recent tasting of over a dozen wines and the most compelling example of the Rabajà-Bas that we've tasted. 

Without Peer:
Selosse Sous Le Mont Extra Brut

The profundity and sheer individuality of Selosse's wines has made him one of the most important producers in Champagne and in wine in general. Sous le Mont dramatizes just how fascinating and groundbreaking Selosse's work is.

Utter Brilliance - Revisited:
2020 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

It's hard not to be in awe of Egon Müller. From his Scharzhofberg vineyard, Müller crafts the most consistently magical Rieslings on the planet.

Utter Brilliance:
2008 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé

The hallmark here is aristocratic breeding with super-fine layers of fruit. It is authoritative in its presence for sure but carries its stature with stunning sophistication.

Wine of the Year Revisited:
2014 Roagna Barbaresco Albesani

Roagna is a longstanding Piedmont traditionalist, but the estate is now one of Piedmont’s greats. No one is making Barbaresco at the same level.

"Excellent underlying tension"
2019 Roulot Meursault Villages

It is razor-sharp, indisputably noble, and emphatically mineral. Roulot makes some of the most riveting expressions of Chardonnay on earth and the Meursault Villages makes this clear. 

Overnoy in the Mosel: Stein's Radical, Sparkling, Minimalism
2015 Stein Riesling "Ohne" Sekt Brut Nature

This is sparkling Riesling at its most delicious and cerebral; the 2015 edition comes to us with well over five years of bottle age, yet the wine shows a driving freshness, a profound mineral complexity with a resinous and firm acidity - this is unquestionably Mosel.

Large Formats:
Allemand, Canonica, Château Latour, Bartolo Mascarello, Muller, Musar, Roulot & Much More

At The Top Of Their Game:
2020 Leflaive et Associes Bourgogne Blanc

Few things make me happier than witnessing Leflaive firing on all cylinders. They are some of the most beautiful expressions of white Burgundy. 

The Real Deal:
2019 Gilles Cornas

Gilles got his start working for Chave and Robert Michel, the legendary old-school Cornas producer who also served as a mentor to Thierry Allemand.

These serious credentials are on bold display in the honest, exacting, and very compelling wines that he produces.

Stand Alone Rosé:
2021 Pradeaux Bandol Rosé

Their Bandol Rosé is one of the most structured, complex, and ageable examples of the category.

"A profound wine in the making...keeps company with vintage's finest"
2019 Trapet Chambertin Bottles & Magnums

There is likely no grander, more soaring expression of red Burgundy than Chambertin.

The Magic of Alzinger:
2020 Alzinger Riesling Loibenberg Smaragd

In Alzinger's hands, Loibenberg reaches a rare level of delicacy and intricacy. You can definitely find more powerful and more layered Austrian wines, but you won't find any as fine. That's a big part of why we love his wines so much.

"This young man is a clear talent"
2019 Pierre Girardin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières

Hitting The Mark:
2020 Julien Sunier Morgon

Sunier's 2020 Morgon highlights his irresistible and very compelling winemaking style. It's gorgeously silken and strikingly pure. 

Red Burgundy:
D'Angerville, Barthod, Fourrier, Ponsot, Rousseau & More

"If you admire both the intellectual and the savage, then this is a must-buy wine"
2019 Levet Côte-Rôtie La Chavaroche

Levet's Chavaroche is one of the most traditional and fascinating wines currently being made in the northern Rhône. With age, Levet's wines become even more nuanced, captivating, and refined.
