Selosse Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger Les Carelles Grand Cru Extra Brut

The wine has an astonishing resonance and finesse. Carelles works on an epic scale with incredible nuance and refinement.

Cult Loire - Rare:
2019 Bernaudeau Vin de France Les Onglés

The 2019 Les Onglés has an intense core of minerality that's backed by a nice raciness. I really like how it combines delicacy with punch and length. 

2016 Keller Abtserde GG

For Keller, it's a vintage of shocking refinement, poise, and finesse. Keller's 2016s are positively pure and persistent. The 2016 Abtserde is an absolutely amazing vintage of a wine that is always extraordinary.

Hitting The High-Water Mark, Again:
2020 Pelican Cuvee Trois Cépages

A blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau, and Ploussard, the Trois Cépages always has a beautiful harmony and purity. The 2020 stands out with its radiant clarity and depth of intensity. 

"Simply breathtaking"
2008 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Magnums

When Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is on, it can reach heights that only a select few Champagnes can achieve.

The Other Egon Müller
2021 Egon Müller Le Gallais Wiltinger braune Kupp Spätlese

The 2021 has a stunning high-toned lift that Müller coaxed out of this typically darker, spiced site. It carries a walk-on-tip-toe finesse that only Müller pulls off this well. The wine possesses an elegance and shimmering radiance that’s really impressive.

Brilliance in the Côte des Blancs Revisited
2007 Agrapart L'Avizoise Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

L'Avizoise is one of our favorite Champagnes. We love L'Avizoise for its balance of lavishness and electric minerality. It offers a crystal-clear expression of Chardonnay.

Rhône Royalty:
2014 Rayas Côtes du Rhône La Pialade

You can expect the 2014 La Pialade to possess explosive aromatics and layers of saturating red fruits. There's serious breeding and complexity. It offers an almost overwhelming procession of savory herbs, iron, smoke, and spice.

Thriving On Grace:
2019 Jouan Chambolle-Musigny

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

Red Burgundy 2001-2020:
Arnoux-Lachaux, Bachelet, Fourrier, Leroy, Mugneret-Gibourg, Roumier, Rousseau & More

A Perennial Overachiever:
2020 Tribut Chablis

Tribut's Chablis is, without a doubt, one of the best village level wines in the region.

German Elite:
2020 Schäfer-Fröhlich Felsenberg Grosses Gewächs

Felsenberg occupies a fascinating place in the Schäfer-Fröhlich GG lineup.

Back Up The Truck: Spanish Edition
2021 Nanclares Y Prieto Dandelion Albarino

Nanclares makes some of the most stunning examples of the Albarino grape that we know.

Their Dandelion Albarino has taken on a life of its own at Crush. 

"A Champagne of extraordinary elegance and finesse"
2012 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses

It is an extremely steep and extremely chalky vineyard. The wines that Philipponnat issues from this site possess incredible structure and serious finesse.  

"Elegance, intensity and a very long finish"
Equipo Navazos La Bota de Amontillado "Viejísimo” Aniversario #73 375ml

The Amontillado "Viejísimo” Aniversario #73 is simply epic. Even for a project that has released no shortage of old and insanely complex old sherries, the #73 stands out. 

Loire Royalty Hitting The Bullseye - Revisited:
2020 Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec

This is a wine that drives Bourg's chalky minerality home. The wine is electric, penetrating, and multifaceted. The ultra-fine presentation is infused with bright citrus and round stone fruits.

Magic in Meursault:
2019 Pierre Boisson Meursault Grands Charrons

The Boisson family makes Meursault exactly as we like it: intensely mineral, nervy, and with perfectly-judged richness.

2021 Lauer Schonfels Kabinett
The First Time Ever

As many of you know, Schonfels has served as one of the great examples of what Lauer and the Saar could achieve with dry Riesling.

Piedmont 2001-2020:
Burlotto, Canonica, Conterno, Mascarello, Rinaldi, Roagna & More

The Loire: A New Name To Know
2019 Aurélien Revillot Bourgueil sur les Hauts

When I first tasted Revillot's wines last fall, I was deeply impressed. Revillot has enjoyed high regard in France for many years, but this was the first time that I had encountered the wines.  

Allemand Cornas:


Foillard Value:
2020 Foillard Morgon Classique

The 2020 Morgon Classique has a lovely combination of richness and energy. It carries a stony minerality, earth, and bright cherry notes across the palate with Foillard's signature silky texture.

Mascarello Disciple - Limited:
2020 Margherita Otto Langhe Nebbiolo

Margherita Otto's 2020 Langhe Nebbiolo boasts a beautiful purity and precision. It presents a beautiful weave of floral and savory notes. There's a very nice rigor and lifted quality to the wine.
