Wine of the Year Revisited
2019 Berthaut-Gerbet Bourgogne - Hautes Côtes de Nuits

Berthaut-Gerbet's 2019 is about texture and purity above all else. It's a beautifully articulate wine with a buoying undercurrent that makes red Burgundy so unique. There's bright fruits and an earthy minerality that are beautifully interwoven. The overall presentation is one of refinement.

"Simply breathtaking"
2008 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne

As the Galloni quotes above make clear, the 2008 is a dynamic bottle. We drank another bottle last week and there's little doubt that the wine will go down as a legend.

Jura Rarities:
Cavarodes, Cellier Saint Benoit, Ganevat, Macle & Pelican

"If you can find it, buy it."
2020 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux

The 2020 Butteaux is a particularly intense version of the wine with a sleek saline minerality. Burghound's note serves as the perfect summary: "This powerful and compact effort is flat out terrific." 

Champagne Rarity:
2014 Ledru Cuvée du Goulté

The 2014 is an especially kinetic, refined, and deep expression of Goulté. It has beautifully textured minerality and deep, subtle complexity. It's high-toned with floral notes, spice, and Ambonnay's classic red fruits.

"This is an excellent Gevrey villages and well-worth checking out."
2020 Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin

Even in the context of Rousseau's Gevrey, the 2020 is an important vintage. It's the total package of layered complexity and lifted finesse. There's a velvety texture that's really appealing. 

2022 Lapierre Morgon Magnums

Lapierre is one of the most beloved producers in Beaujolais and this modest parcel of magnums will disappear quickly.

White Burgundy:
Carillon, Coche-Dury, Dauvissat, Lafon, Leflaive, Ramonet, Raveneau & More

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2021 Envinate Taganan Tinto

The 2021 Táganan Tinto delivers a striking freshness and floral lift. It's backed up by a smoky, saline, pulverized minerality along with dark fruits and spice. It's hard to capture how evocative and gripping this wine is in its soil expression.

Don't Miss Vintage - Burgundy Distance Runner:
2020 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Champans

They are wines of incredible freshness, depth, and class. In short, it's the total package. 

Hauntingly Delicate, Seriously Intense:
Singular Sherry Vinegar From La Bota

This is an incredibly concentrated and intense vinegar that's intended to be used in drops. It brings a haunting complexity when used to finish braises or greens. When used judiciously, it brings an incredible amount of depth to dishes along with the soaring aromatics that you would expect.

Rarely Seen Lapierre:
2022 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

The 2022 is another example of Lapierre succeeding in a ripe vintage. It's a concentrated vintage for the wine with a washing freshness on the backend that keeps it lively.

Piedmont Rarity, 1.8ha:
2016 Canonica Barolo Paiagallo

Canonica's wines have become some of the hardest to find in all of Piedmont. Canonica’s Barolo Paiagallo comes from a mere 1.8 ha vineyard.

2019 Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières

Lafon's 2019 Genevrières boasts incredible refinement and length. The wine has a pristine mineral backbone that's seriously impressive. The overall presentation of intensity, verve, and finesse makes for a don't miss white Burgundy. 

Brilliant Bourgogne:
2020 Pierre Boisson Bourgogne Blanc Les Herbeux

Across the board, they are wines of extraordinary clarity, finesse, and unforgettable impact. There are very few wines at this level that deliver so much for the money.

Untamed Côte-Rôtie:
2020 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

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

Riveting Côte des Blancs:
Lilbert-Fils Brut Blanc de Blancs Perle Grand Cru NV

Lilbert's Perle has become one of our most popular offers. The combination of fascination and value can't be denied.

Red Burgundy:
Bachelet, DRC, Dujac, Engel, Fourrier, Lafarge, Mugnier, Rouget, Rousseau & More

Limestone Speaks:
2021 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Grand Cru Muschelkalk

This is one of the best "Muschelkalks" Enderle & Moll has made - especially for you purists. Sadly, it was a very short vintage.

The Master of Chinon:
2021 Baudry Chinon Les Grézeaux

Baudry's style is beautifully detailed, vividly transparent, and refined. We expected Baudry to thrive in the energetic 2021 vintage. The 2021 Grézeaux doesn't disappoint.

Red Burgundy As It Should Be, Part Two:
2021 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny

It's nice to see the excitement over Bertheau's wines. They are some of the Burgundies that I'm most fond of. Few producers do purity and transparency better than Bertheau.

Back Up The Truck - Piedmont Edition:
2018 Produttori di Carema Carema Riserva

Carema is about an hour's drive from Barolo and amounts to its alpine cousin. It's one of the most riveting and most versatile wines around.

Rhône Royalty, Part Two:
2020 Chave Saint-Joseph

Chave's ability to render Syrah with depth, detail, and sophistication is without parallel. While the Hermitage is among the world's great wines, Chave's Saint-Joseph is where you find outrageous value.

Extreme Weightlessness:
2021 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Buntsandstein

The "Buntsandstein" is normally the most expansive of the Pinot Noir collection; this is perhaps the most focused edition they have ever made.
