    Item #: i_351274
    Bottle Size: 750ml
  2. ANNE GROS 2016 BOURGOGNE BLANC CUVEE MARINE

    Item #: i_350552
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Subtle, harmonious - Burgundy from Domaine Anne Gros is intimately tied with the elegant and poised character of wines from Vosne-Romanée.

    While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Gros’ expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible, so much so that Gros’ very limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage.

    Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history.

    Anne Gros cares for her vineyards according to “lutte raisonée” principles, adhering to organic practices as much as possible depending on the conditions of the growing year. Grapes are always harvested by hand. Juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in lined (enameled) cement tanks for the reds, and in stainless steel tanks for the whites. Wines are aged in barrel for approximately 16 months, with 80 percent new oak for grand cru wines, 50 percent for village wines and 30 percent for regional wines.

  3. ANNE GROS 2016 BOURGOGNE ROUGE HAUTES COTES DE NUITS

    Item #: i_350551
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The 2015 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, which comes from vines between Nuits Saint-Georges and Flagey-Echézeaux, saw up to 40% new oak due to the tannins. It has an attractive bouquet with lightly spiced black fruit, touches of limestone and freshly tilled soil emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the new oak neatly integrated with good substance towards the quite elegant finish. This is one of the best Bourgognes that I encountered from the 2015 vintage.

  6. ARNOUX LACHAUX 2016 BOURGOGNE ROUGE

    Item #: i_351962
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    This Bourgogne rouge is surprisingly charming and floral. I don’t normally care much for Bourgogne wines but this is something special and worth the attention. This Pinot Fin is a blend of seven different plots around Cote de Nuits, 50% from Chambolle Musigny appellation, 25% from Nuits Saint Georges, and 25% from Vosne Romanée. Around 60% of the crop was lost in 2016 due to frost, around 20 barrels of Bourgogne Pinot Fin produced in 2016. Flamboyant aroma of supple rose petal, wild strawberries, and raspberry. 60% whole cluster. Great lightness and gentleness.

  12. BERNARD MOREAU 2015 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE V.V.

    Item #: i_345644
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 86-88
    Burghound: 88
    BURGHOUND 88 POINTS: "Here the pretty nose is at once more elegant if more restrained with its array of various red berries, earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is good richness and notably more volume to the seductively textured, round and delicious medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a lightly structured, dusty and ever-so-mildly rustic finale. While this should reward a few years of cellar time it should also drink well young."

    eROBERT PARKER 86-88 POINTS: "The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes Rouge was a little closed on the nose when I tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied, quite firm in the mouth with chalky tannin framing the raspberry and cranberry fruit. The modest 10% new oak gives a little weight on the finish. Give this a year in bottle so that it can find its groove."

  13. BOUCHARD PERE & FILS 2013 BEAUNE L'ENFANT JESUS 1ER CRU

    Item #: 322496
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 89-92 POINTS :" There is ample but again not dominating wood influence to the menthol, red and dark currant, earth and exotic tea scents. The attractively textured, intense and restrained medium weight flavors exhibit a lovely minerality on the ever-so-mildly austere finish where a barely perceptible hint of dryness creeps in. My range offers the benefit of the doubt that this will harmonize with a few years of age."

    VINOUSMEDIA 89-91 POINTS :"(15% hail damage here, according to Philippe Prost; 32 hectoliters per hectare produced): Good dark red. Black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose, plus a whiff of menthol. Juicy and deep, showing excellent definition and lift to its black cherry, chocolate and mineral flavors. Very good energy here, with the tannins avoiding dryness." -- Stephen Tanzer

  14. BOUCHARD PERE & FILS 2016 BEAUNE CLOS DE LA MOUSSE 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_345112
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    FINE WINE REVIEW 89 - 92 POINTS - "The nose here is floral. The mouth shows raspberry and dark fruits, a smooth texture, and the wine is light on the palate. This Bouchard monopole is not one of the top Beaune vineyards, but Bouchard does an increasingly good job with it."

  15. BRUNO CLAIR 2011 VOSNE ROMANEE CHAMPS PEDRIX

    Item #: i_351855
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 89 - 91 POINTS - "There is a blend of both wood and natural spice elements that add scope to the dark pinot fruit suffused nose. There is excellent concentration to the mouth coating and vibrant flavors where the old vines are very much in evidence as there is an abundance of tannin-buffering sap. A terrific and impeccably well-balanced villages that is well worth your attention."

  16. BRUNO CLAIR 2012 CLOS DE BEZ GRAND CRU

    Item #: 323173
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 93-95 POINTS: "A discreet hint of wood allows the slightly riper and definitely spicier aromas of earth, humus, dark berries and soft sauvage notes to shine. There is excellent power to the muscular and broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with structure-buffering dry extract that coats the palate on the mineral-driven, punchy and seriously persistent finish. This is a Beze of power and finesse though note that unlike many 2012s this is clearly built for the long haul."

  17. BRUNO CLAIR 2014 MOREY ST DENIS RUE DE VERGY

    Item #: i_350321
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Burghound: 88-91
    BURGHOUND 88-91 POINTS: "A whiff of oak adds breadth to the red berry fruit, plum and earth-suffused nose. I very much like the sense of underlying tension to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the more complex and well-balanced finish that also displays a hint of austerity."

  18. BRUNO CLAIR 2015 GEVREY CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE FONTENY 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_321140
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 91-93
    WINE ADVOCATE 91 - 93 POINTS - "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny, a monopole of the domaine, has a delightful bouquet with lively red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas. The palate is well balanced with sappy red berry fruit overlaying the fine tannins. It fans out towards the finish, offering enticing orange rind and blood orange notes that infuse the tart aftertaste. Lovely, just a really lovely Gevrey-Chambertin. Bruno Clair already has an impressive array of holdings in the Côtes de Nuits, from which he has been furnishing wine lovers with beautifully made, quite classically-styled wines for many years. Next year he will add another quite significant parcel of Bonnes-Mares from the cessation of a fermage with Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair, who own the monopole of vines on the Morey-Saint-Denis side of the border. That will surely make Bruno one of the most significant producers of this grand cru. I tasted through the 2015s with winemaker Philippe Brun and a young student who was studying oeno-tourism, assigned 2-weeks by her college at the domaine (I can think of worse work placements myself). "We had some millerandage during the growing season," Philippe told me. "We picked from 6 September and then over 10 days until 20 September. We picked the whites within two days."

    BURGHOUND 90 - 93 POINTS - "A deeply pitched yet wonderfully elegant nose is comprised by densely fruited aromas of red cherry, cassis, earth, violet and sandalwood. There is a terrific sense of underlying vibrancy to the refined, cool and restrained flavors that possess a taut muscularity on the impressively persistent, well-balanced and mildly austere finale. This is definitely built-to-age and will require at least 6 to 8 years but reward up to 15 or so. In a word, excellent."

    VINOUS 90 - 92 POINTS - "(from vines planted on rock, close to Ruchottes-Chambertin): Medium palish red. Subtle, somewhat reduced scents of raspberry, strawberry, smoke and earth. A step up in sweetness and pliancy from the village Gevrey, but with pungent minerality enlivening the middle palate. Offers an impression of breadth without weight and finishes with nicely buffered tannins. Lovely potential here.
