    BURGHOUND 90-93 POINTS: "Here the wood influence is less subtle with a toasty if beautifully spicy nose of very ripe plum and black cherry aromas. The naturally sweet medium weight plus flavors possess a velvety mid-palate as there is an abundance of sap that buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the dusty, mouth coating and entirely serious finish. There is a mild touch of rusticity on the robust finale but overall, this is a well-balanced and harmonious effort that should age well."

    BURGHOUND 92 POINTS: "There is an abundance of Chablis character here with notes of iodine, algae, citrus and much more discreet nuances of mineral reduction along with hints of dried yellow orchard fruit. The silky yet entirely serious medium-bodied flavors exhibit plenty of minerality on the citrusy and hugely long finish that is clean, dry, long and balanced. This highly impressive effort should reward up to a decade of cellar time though drink well before that if desired."

  • 1749 2015 SAUVIGNON BLANC LOIRE VALLEY

    Item #: 322274

    With a forward nose of vivid fruits, from gooseberry to white peach and white grapefruit, melded with a touch of river water, lanolin and nougat, the palate on 1749 continued and expanded on the initial fruit-laden theme. Sweet yet almost tart, notes of star fruit, more gooseberry and white grapefruit merged with a lush mouthfeel, counterbalanced by good acidity to keep it clean and buoyant. Hints of apricots, orange blossoms and clover honey furthered the delicious depth on the palate. The finish is fresh and quick but with a lingering fruit essence and mixed floral touch that reverberates nicely.

    This wine is perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having and has a classic Loire Valley profile with a nice dollop of New Zealand-esque citrus-- it’s balanced, clean, fresh, uplifting and clearly a worthy Hi-Time Wine of the Month. Enjoy!

    The de Villaines farm three appellations within the Côte Chalonaise, namely Bouzeron (Aligoté), Rully (Chardonnay) and Mercurey (Pinot Noir). Their single-vineyard parcels are stunning examples of what this complex and amazing terroir can yield. Though their wines are quite enjoyable young, their ability to age well is what one might expect from a master such as de Villaine. Much of this is due to both the diversity of his vinestock and his organic and biodynamic methodology in the vineyards, both of which Aubert stands by with great conviction. He also ferments his Mercureys in wood cuves, a style adopted from DRC.

    Aubert de Villaine may be more famous for managing the legendary estate of Domaine de la Romanée Conti (DRC) but his passion for producing exemplary Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Aligoté does not begin and end with the wines from the Cote de Beaune. Truth be told, his true winemaking love lies south of those world renowned vineyards in the Cote Chalonaise district, one of Burgundy's best-kept secrets. The greatness of Aubert's wines cannot be overstated. They are among the finest that the region has to offer and are the ultimate expression of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. His innovative approach to winemaking spans the pages of time, incorporating tradition with a modernist’s mastery for precision and truth. Designed for immediate consumption or moderate to long-term aging, the red and white wines from Aubert's Maconnais vineyards are a must-have for anyone who is passionate about the wines of Burgundy.

    The richest white Burgundy in the de Villaine stable, this Rully is an exercise in balance. Hazelnut and quince paste greet the nose, followed by a dense mouthful of ripe, succulent yellow fruits. Despite its voluptuousness, the wine is dry, fresh, very stony, and even salty—mouthwateringly delicious. This vintage is magnificent for Les Saint-Jacques, and ample proof of the high quality of terroir in this southern stronghold of Burgundy. The fact that it isn’t premier cru, well, that’s proof of a talented grower, because it sure does taste like it. —Dixon Brooke

  • A&P DE VILLAINE 2015 BOURGOGNE "LA DIGOINE"

    Winemaker's Notes "La Digoine is a site at the foot of a slope, known for centuries to provide the deep soil and growing conditions necessary for excellent red wine. Our vineyard here is planted in moderate-yield Pinot Noir. La Digoine can be drunk very young. Within two or three months of bottling, it demonstrates immediate appeal with red berry fruit and a balance of roundness, structure, and lenght on the palate.

    However, this is another versatil wine which benefits from bottle aging. After 18 to 24 months, slow maturation and evolution begin to make their mark, and La Digoine will improve over the next ten year, revealing the deep, complex aromas worthy of a great burgundy. Depending on cellar conditions, we recommanded twelve to fifteen years of aging.

    Serving temperature for a young La Digoine should be around 60°F, and around 64°F for an older one. It goes well with red meat and any of a variety of cheeses, though soft cheeses like Camembert, Brie, and Vacherin should be avoided."

    Winemaker's Notes - "Our Bouzeron comes from vines situated on the best slopes of the appellations. We have planted the golden Aligoté doré grape, which gives lowers yield and more aromatic wines than its cousin, the Aligoté vert. True to its varietal nature, our Bouzeron is a liveley, fruity wine, but it also has a finesse and roundness that spring from the essential nature of the terroir. These qualities lend it great versatility. To best appreciate the freshness and fruit, it would be drunk young, within two or three years. To allow the wine to fully develop fullness and "fatness", age it for up to ten years. It should be served chilled, at about 54°F, as an apéritif, with seafood, or with a number of cheeses (goat cheese, Cantal, Beaufort, Parmesan, Roquefort, etc."

    JOHN GILMAN VIEW FROM THE CELLAR 92 POINTS-"It had been a few years since I last tasted a bottle of Agrapart’s lovely “Les 7 Crus” cuvée. The wine is really lovely, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of apple, tart pear, chalky minerality, citrus zest and fresh-baked bread. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, fine focus and a very long, zesty and perfectly balanced finish. This is one lower dosage bottling that is drinking with style and grace in its youth. 2016-2030."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "A big, rich wine, [it] brings together the radiance and intensity of the vintage, with the freshness that is so typical of the Agrapart Champagnes. Today, the 2009 looks like it will also offer readers quite a bit more early gratification than is often the case. Almonds, pears, spices, mint and dried flowers are some of the notes that are laced into the finish. The Minéral emerges from old-vine parcels [in Cramant] the Champboutons and Les Bionnes lieux-dits. Dosage 5 grams/liter; disgorged June 2015."

    PETER LEIM 2 STARS - "True to its vintage, this is forward and fruity, showing an ample ripeness. At the same time, it’s underlined by a piercing core of chalky minerality, turning more tense and pointed on the long, fragrant finish. It’s an excellent version of this cuvée, and a fine successor to the brilliant 2008. Last tasted: 11/15."

    Brothers Arthur and Fabrice Agrapart have guided the rise of their family’s Champagne estate since 1984. Blessed with a patrimony of outstanding Côte des Blancs vineyard parcels (mostly Grand Cru rated) the duo has maximized the potential of their land through rigorous biodynamic viticulture practices and non-interventionist winemaking techniques. Their hard work and skill has resulted in consistently high critical acclaim and, as one would expect, a burgeoning fan base. While it is great to see the family’s dedication and hard work pay off, their success has caused our allocations to grow smaller with each new release. These latest vintage bottlings are in particularly short supply.

    1 1/2 Stars ChampagneGuide.net-"Compared to Agrapart's 7 Crus, this is both finer in texture and larger in body-you see the influence of grand cru terroir not only in finesse but in puissance as well. It's intensely chalky under the silky notes of pear, green citrus and guava, anchored by vibrant acidity, and it feels fragrant and flowery on the long finish, demonstrating a superb balance and focus.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS-"The NV Extra Brut Complantée Grand Cru is bright, intensely floral and lifted, with plenty of jasmine, white orchard fruit, chalk and white pepper overtones. Floral notes continue to develop into the finish in what is a very delicate and gracious Champagne. Even so, I would prefer to give the Complantée a bit more time in bottle, as it is compact and tightly wound today. As the name states, the Complantée emerges from a parcel planted with seven verieties that are authorized in Champagne: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Arbanne, all vinified together. The current release is a blend of 2013 and 2012 vintages done in tonneaux, with full malolactic fermentation. Dosage is 5 grams per liter." Disgorged June 2016.

    This is a field blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Arbanne and Petit Meslier, all harvested and pressed together. It’s rare to find these varieties planted in a grand cru terroir as exalted as Avize. Tiny productions. Extremely limites!

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS: Wine Spectator - "A focused, chalk-edged style, with piercing savory and olive notes out front, backed by red currant and bitter cherry flavors. The racy, mouthwatering finish allows the chalky spine to stretch out. Will be a winner when the fruit fills out fully. Best from 2017 through 2027." VINOUS MEDIA/ ANTONIO GALLONI-92 POINTS "Opaque ruby. Vibrant and sharply focused on the nose, displaying intense dark berry and floral scents complicated by suggestions of olive, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Juicy, concentrated and gently sweet, offering sappy cherry and black currant flavors that become more lively and spicy with air. Shows excellent power and spicy thrust on an impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, leaving notes of dark berry liqueur and allspice behind."

    Over the past decade, the Albert Mann domaine has catapulted itself into the highest echelon of Alsatian producers. Biodynamic, delicious and always an incredible value, Mann’s Pinot Blanc again satisfies far beyond its price tag in the tiny, extremely high quality 2015 vintage. Lovely lemon-gold in the glass, Mann’s 2015 Pinot Blanc deftly balances a bold core of peach and pineapple fruit with soft minerality, acacia honey, and smoky, herbal notes. A full, lavish palate features suggestions of peach, Mirabelle plum and nectarine. On the finish, lifting acidity buoys the wine’s citrus and stone fruit expressions, while reprises of nectarine and yellow plum fruit yield to hints of fresh ginger and slate minerals. This is a textbook, mineral-driven Pinot Blanc in the elegant yet palate-staining Alsatian style: the kind that serves as inspiration for Pinot Blanc specialists in Italy and Oregon. Enjoy this over the coming two years with broiled salmon, choucroute garni, pork roasts, duck confit, quiches and washed-rind cheeses.

    Ready to have a new favorite white wine for under $20.00? Hope so, because this wine is really good! We first tasted this wine last year when it was brought into the store for us to sample. Once this Chardonnay from Burgundy touched our lips we were smitten. This became an instant staff favorite and quickly become one of our "go to" wines. It's clean, crisp and dry and features wonderful purity of fruit. This wine is balanced, harmonious and flat-out delicious.

    The wine has been unavailable for many months, but we found more and again sampled it. It continues to be fantastic and may have actually improved a bit with more bottle age. It comes from the little known appellation of Vire-Clesse and the up and coming producer, Domaine Andre Bonhomme. The grapes for this wine are hand-picked from the domaine’s small, 5 acre parcel and are fermented and aged in stainless-steel, resulting in a clean, aromatic style.

    The Andre Bonhomme Vire-Clesse Vieilles Vignes is from the outstanding 2014 vintage in Burgundy which was particularly kind to Chardonnay. The Vieilles Vignes (old vines) have an average age of over 80 years, resulting in uncommon depth for a wine at this price point.

    We have put Andre Bonhomme's Vire-Clesse on our Napa Technology tasting machine where our customers can "try before you buy." Well, they did try it and the bottles flew out of the store. Vire and Clesse were originally areas appended to the village of Macon. As time went on, it became apparent these vineyards were capable of producing wines of distinction. Upon approval from the governing body, Vire-Clesse gained recognition and became an appellation unto itself.

    This is a wine that tastes great on release, but will evolve slowly for several years if you can wait. It is an uncommon value that clearly over-delivers for the price. Enjoy!

    Really nice on the nose with notes of gala apple, citrus, pear blossom, tangerine blossom and some tropical fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is clean, crisp and dry with a medium/full body and nice acidity that provides lift. The flavor profile is broad with fresh, perfectly ripened fruit. Gala apples, Bartlett pears, lemon oil, pineapple, melon and a brilliant wet rock minerality are apparent. The acidity brings freshness to this well-balanced effort which has a surprisingly long finish. Enjoy on its own or with a variety of shellfish, seafood or poultry.

    The Clos here is a walled old-vine Pinot Noir vineyard that is situated between the Clouet family's house and the cuverie at the base of the Bouzy ampitheater. Made entirely from this site the Clos de Bouzy is made only in exceptional years and is bottled exclusively in Magnums to ensure optimum development of time.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS
    -"The 2006 is the first release of Clouet's Clos de Bouzy, a 100% Pinot bottled only in magnum. Considering the year and the richness of Pinot from Bouzy, the Clos de Bouzy is surprisingly bright and floral in its aromas and flavors. The Pinot is mostly felt in the wine's richness and texture. Dried pears, flowers, spices and anise emerge over time, but the 2006 is first and foremost a wine of subtlety. It will be interesting to see if the 2006 puts on additional weight in bottle. .Magnum only. (05/13)."
