A Revelation From Southern Italy:
2018 Vallisassoli 33/33/33 Campania IGP Bianco

Vallisassoli's 33/33/33 is beautifully composed, but what makes it stand out is its mysterious depth and soulfulness.

The Pinnacle - 0.36ha:
2022 Jouan Clos St-Denis

The buoyant luminosity of the vintage really helps the Clos St-Denis assume fascinating dimensions. It possesses haunting aromatics, finesse, and depth of minerality.

Perennial Overachiever:
2021 Thierry Pillot Bourgogne Blanc

Everything that Pillot produces is shockingly pure, precise, and tension-filled. The incredible quality across the entire range is impressive.

The Greatest Grande Cuvée Ever?
Krug Grande Cuvée 164th Edition (2008 Base)

The skillful blending in Krug's Grande Cuvée pulls off an incredible feat - it drinks well upon release, yet ages majestically. Certain releases age for decades. This 164th Edition has evolved beautifully. 

Under-the-Radar Lafarge:
2010 Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Sélectionnées

Lafarge is a very special producer for me. I love the entire line-up. With all that said, I have a soft spot for the VS. The wine offers such nuance, depth, and finesse for the price.

The Heir to the Keller Dry Scheurebe Throne?
2022 Leipold Scheurebe Trocken Alte Reben

For us, it is hard to describe the wine's soaring, airy rush across the palate. It has a sleek, satiny minerality infused with salt and ocean breezes, a glacial freshness that is so incisive and weightless.

Red Burgundy 1989-2022:
D’Angerville, Bachelet, Bizot, Dujac, Mugneret-Gibourg, Mugnier, Roumier & More

"In a word, terrific." -2021 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

The 2021 Forest is an epic edition of this wine.

"The Brut Réserve is a real rock star."
Bérèche Brut Reserve NV

Everything that he turns out is shockingly good. However, the value that the Brut Reserve offers is amazing. It's our go-to Champagne.

The Rarest Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Grand Cru

The wines articulate soil and place with the shocking clarity that has made this estate one of the most famous in Germany for Pinot Noir.

PYCM Magic - Extreme Purity:
2021 Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot Cuvée Clement et Emma

Simply put, there's no doubt that Pierre-Yves Colin is making some of the most compelling white Burgundies in existence. We include this domaine along with Coche, Lafon, Leflaive, and Roulot at the pinnacle of white Burgundy producers.

"This is lovely and a wine that should age accordingly."
2022 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet

What makes 2022s at Tribut so exciting is how the wines combine power and presence with verve and minerality. Tribut's 2022s have an incredible amount of punch and finesse.

Rare Piedmont: 2022 Giuseppe Rinaldi:
Dolcetto d'Alba & Barbera d'Alba

2023 Lapierre Morgon MAGNUMS

Their Morgon serves as an archetype of purity and deliciousness. Few wines offer so much joyful drinking. These qualities make magnums essential.

Brilliance in the Côte des Blancs:
2017 Agrapart Minéral Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

It is one of the most riveting expressions of Chardonnay to be found. Minéral is an absolutely terroir-saturated Champagne.

Recent Purchases:
Bernaudeau, Chave, Clos Rougeard, Colin-Morey, Macle, Mugneret-Gibourg, Roulot & More

Before wrapping up, I can't resist mentioning 2014 Colin-Morey Chassagne 1er Abbaye de Morgeot Cuvee Clement et Emma and Krug's 164th Edition, based on the incredible 2008 vintage.

Oregon Grand Cru:
2022 Morgen Long Chardonnay Eola Amity

This is simply a groundbreaking wine in terms of what's possible from Oregon Chardonnay. Anyone obsessed with top white Burgundy or other elite expressions of the Chardonnay grape needs to check out a bottle. The wine is that impressive. 

An Electric Overachiever - Lowest Price:
2020 Anne Boisson Bourgogne Aligoté

The zingy electricity of the grape shines through while the vintage adds an extra dimension of power and polish. The entire package is compelling. 

From Bourgogne to Clos Vougeot

These are easy wines to become obsessed with. Across the range, the wines are texturally beguiling, transparent, and supremely elegant. Even their Bourgogne Rouge is painfully rare.

Bérèche, Bouchard, Collin, Fallon, Krug, Philipponnat,
Prevost, Salon, Savart, Selosse, & More

I had a lot of fun putting this list together. It includes many of my favorite Champagnes. 

Sancerre Grand Cru:
2022 Gérard Boulay Sancerre La Côte

Classicism in Côte-Rôtie:
Magnum Edition - 2021 Jamet Côte-Rôtie Magnums

You can find deeper and more powerful examples, but for us, Syrah is at its best when it's energetic, mineral, and finessed. That's what you'll find here. I expect it to age beautifully in magnums. 

Go-To Burgundy: Finesse & Understatement
2021 Jouan Morey-St-Denis

The Morey St. Denis has always been one of our favorites. It possesses a beautiful honesty that few wines can compete with.

The Origin and Apogee of Mosel Pinot Noir:
2022 Stein Pinot Noir “Red Light” & Pinot Noir “Waechter”

Stein’s Pinot Noir “Red Light” has become an iconic bottling; it is a bright, red-fruited arrow, as sharp as the slate on which it is grown. Stein’s top Pinot Noir, the “Waechter,” has all of this energy yet has more breadth and depth.
