A Study in Grace and Understatement Revisited:
2019 Jouan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

The 2019 Clos Sorbé puts the concentration of the vintage center stage but weaves it into a beautiful elegance and complicated earthy minerality. It's complemented by a pristine clarity of spice-inflected fruit.

Large Formats:
Canonica, Conterno, Chave, Dom Perignon, Foillard, Krug, Lamy, Roulot & More

German Elite:
2020 Schäfer-Fröhlich Stromberg Grosses Gewächs

Since its debut vintage in 2012, the Stromberg GG has competed with the Felseneck GG for the honor of Schäfer-Fröhlich's top dry bottling.

"I suspect the 2013 will join the ranks of the epic vintages"
2013 Roederer Cristal Rosé

Cristal Rosé is always on the "buy" list of Champagne collectors, but the 2013 has all of the markings of a special vintage of this great wine. 

"A beautifully crafted Gevrey"
2019 Berthaut-Gerbet Gevrey-Chambertin Combe du Dessus

In 2013, at just 25 years old, Amélie Berthaut took over the majority of her mother and father’s separate estates to form Berthaut-Gerbet. Her wines immediately created a major stir.

"Spätlese does not get better than this"
2021 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

Müller crafts the most consistently magical Rieslings on the planet.

Still, the 2021 collection stands out as a special vintage for Müller. 

Rare Métras:
2014 Yvon Métras Fleurie l'Ultime

The 2014 Beaujolais is among the favorites of the past decade. The vintage has a density and undeniable presence, but also a driving acidity.

Roagna:
2006-2016

Roagna turns out no-nonsense, old-school styled Barolos and Barbarescos. Here long-macerations, late harvests, low yields, and late releases are the norm. This combined with top holdings produces deeply complex and slow-to-unfold Nebbiolos.

White Burgundy:
Coche-Dury, Colin-Morey, Dauvissat, Lafon, Raveneau, Roulot & More

The Magic of the Side Valley:
2021 Lauer Ayler Kupp Riesling Kern Fass 9

In the cut and classic 2021 vintage, this is simply one of Lauer's greatest wines.

Class and Brilliance:
2004 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne

The Côte des Blancs was the star of the 2004 vintage: the wines have an ultra-clear, super-fine chalky minerality and a gorgeous rigor - exactly what I look for in Champagne. The 2004 Comtes de Champagne exemplifies these qualities. Every bottle that we open is beautiful. 

"Villages-level wines rarely are as good as this"
2020 Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin VV

Bachelet's Gevrey is famous for boxing well above its weight class. However, the 2020 sets a new standard. 

"Lovely and one to look for"
2020 Vocoret Chablis Bas de Chapelot

Their 2020s represent yet another high-water mark. You don't have to look any further than Bas de Chapelot. It is a staggeringly good Chablis.

"The 2013 simply has it all"
2013 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo Magnums

Revelatory Champagne:
Cuillier Chemin des Rois Brut Nature (2019)

The Chemin des Nature is a multifaceted triumph. Few Champagnes reach a similar level of energy, nuance, and precision. 

Grand Cru Emrich-Schönleber at 50% Off
Misunderstood and Rare

Make no mistake, these two bottlings are single-vineyard, Grand Cru dry Rieslings from Emrich-Schönleber.

They are something like the Grosses Gewächs at roughly half the price.

The Crown Jewel of the Northern Rhône
1995 Chave Hermitage Rouge

Chave's 1995 Hermitage is one of the examples of the wine that I'm especially fond of. It's certainly among my favorite vintages of Chave from the past few decades. 

Eye-Opening Burgundy - Refinement and Value:
2020 Fornerol Côte de Nuits - Villages Rouge

I have a soft spot for Côte de Nuits, mostly due to Bachelet's wines. Didier Fornerol takes Côte de Nuits to a level of class that I thought was impossible.

The Grand Cru of Vin Jaune:
1982 Macle Château-Chalon

With age Macle's Château-Chalon gets profoundly nuanced. At nearly forty years old, the 1982 is close to peak maturity and boasts all of the complexity and breeding that comes with it. 

"Airy, elegant, precise, and incredibly persistent"
2021 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Kabinett

"Another reference point wine from Bessin"
2020 Bessin-Tremblay Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

We've been blown away by recent vintages. The wines combine honesty, polish, and intensity.

"What a great success!"
2021 Egon Müller Scharzhof QbA Scharzhof

The wines have a zippy, clear, and cool-toned profile that defies the recent string of ripe vintages. 

Honest, Untamed, Beautiful:
2019 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

We love the wine's rugged honesty. They are a completely genuine expression of Syrah: unapologetically wild and complex.

1HA - Lapierre Côte du Py:
2021 Lapierre Cuvee Camille Bottles and Magnums

The 2021 Camille has a beautiful soaring verve and a gorgeously suave texture. There's a very bright and floral presentation of wild cherry and dark minerality. It delivers very appealing drinkability and levity.
