  3. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE CHAMPS GAINS 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_353240
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    VINOUS 92-94 POINTS - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Champs Gain 1er Cru, the smallest cuvée of the domaine, this year represented by two barrels, has a gorgeous bouquet of citrus lemon, almond flakes, nectarine and subtle praline aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, sharing the same weight and density as the La Maltroye but leading to a slightly more mineral-edged, almost stoic finish. This will be fascinating to monitor in bottle."

  4. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE CHENEVOTTES

    Item #: i_353921
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    VINOUS 92-94 - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenevottes 1er Cru has a beautifully defined bouquet of yellow plum, linseed and citrus lemon scents complemented by hints of pressed flowers; a suggestion of orange rind appears with aeration. The palate is beautifully balanced with a fine line of acidity, and quite spicy and energetic, revealing touches of pepper and even a dab of curry powder toward the long, complex finish. Another great success for Alex Moreau."

  5. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE MORGEOT 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_353924
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 92-94
    Vinous Media: 93-95
    Decanter: 90 to 95 Points
    VINOUS 93-95 - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeots 1er Cru has a tight, backward, stony bouquet; Alex Moreau mentioned that he strove to pick at the right time to keep a sense of strictness. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, with a fine bead of acidity. Elegant and refined, without the weight of the Champs Gain or La Maltroye on the midpalate, but conveying a sense of athleticism and poise on the saline finish and an exceptionally persistent aftertaste. Superb."

    DECANTER 94 - "Based on heavier, clay-limestone soils than most of Chassagne's Premiers Crus, this plush, powerful white is made with fruit from Les Fairendes and slightly stonier La Cardeuse. Smoky, oatmealy and textured, with beeswax and kitchen spice aromas, a taut mineral core and a palate-coating finish. Alex Moreau calls this a 'wine to lay down' and he's right."

    WINE ADVOCATE 92-94 - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot was one of the more reserved wines in the cellar when I tasted it, unwinding with notes of pear, peach, white flowers, mint and petrol. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, textural and precise, but needs time to fill out. Of course, that sense of reserve at this early stage is full of promise for the future."

  6. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE VERGERS 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_350690
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 92-94
    Burghound: 90-92
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    Decanter: 90 to 95 point score
    DECANTER 94 - "Alex Moreau's parcel of Les Vergers faces easy and sits on limestone-rich soils in the northern part of the village close to St. Aubin. This is a wonderful expression of the Premier Cru, aged in 20% new wood and combining understated power with chalky minerality, notes of vanilla spice and dessicated coconut and a long, mineral-fresh finish. Zippy and focused."

    WINE ADVOCATE 92-94 - "With a finished pH of 3.19, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is one of the raciest wines in the cellar. Exhibiting scents of almond paste, citrus oil and crisp green orchard fruit, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and chiseled, with a textural attack and lovely mid-palate volume, concluding with a long and precise finish."

    VINOUS 92-94 - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers 1er Cru has a more reserved and austere bouquet compared to the Clos Saint-Jean, featuring scents of dewy green pasture and mountain streams and more malic in style. The palate is very well balanced with a keen line of acidity, notes of lemon rind mixed with orange pith and a touch of white peach and a little tangerine toward the elegant finish, which brims over with energy. Alex Moreau mentioned that this has the higher acidity of his cuvées, and you can feel it (in a good way)."

  7. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CORTON CHARLEMAGNE

    Item #: i_353926
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93-95
    WINE ADVOCATE 93-95 - "A new cuvée for Moreau debuts with the 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, the result of an exchange in must from a proprietor with vines in Aloxe-Corton. Offering up aromas of green apple, white flowers, toasted nuts and iodine, the wine is full-bodied, deep and tensile, with a satiny attack that segues into a layered core that's framed by lively acids and chalky extract."

  8. BOISSON 2017 MEURSAULT GRANDS CHARRONS

    Item #: i_353016
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Domaine Boisson-Vadot, run by father and son team of Bernard and Pierre Boisson, is one of the rising stars in Mersault. The philosophy of the Domaine revolves around careful, hands-on vineyard management to coax the greatest potential of each vintage out of the various plots, and low-impact winemaking in the cellars that allows the unique terroir of each vineyard to surface. New oak is very minimal, no more than 30% for the top cuvées, and much more restraint in the village wines and in Bourgogne Blanc. Pierre Boisson produces a village Meursault from his grandmother’s vineyards (50 year old vines in the lieu-dits of Criots and Perchots) that is hailed an model wine for the appellation. The Domaine also crafts other bottlings, from three of the best lieux à dits in Meursault: Sous la Velle , Grands Charrons (planted in 1988) and Chevalières (planted in 1982). The Grands Charrons is the most expressive, intensely flavoured of the three. The Sous la Velle is a more elegant version of the Grand Charrons. The Chevalières is the most mineral-driven, with a more restraint fruit flavours in its youth but great ageing potential- More like premier crus than village wines. Finally, Boisson-Vadot makes a powerful yet charming Meursault Genevrières premier cru.

  10. BOUCHARD PERE & FILS 2018 CORTON CHARLEMAGNE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_323111
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Decanter: 90 to 95 Points
    DECATNER 94 POINTS "Bouchard Père's Corton-Charlemagne hails from a cool, east-facing site on yellow marls soils in Aloxe-Corton and is one of the last parcels to be picked. Fermented in 20% new wood, it's still a pretty rich Grand Cru white, with breadth, texture and a drizzle of honey, but there's also plenty of balancing acidity, sap and minerality. Appealing stuff."

  11. BOYER MARTENOT 2017 MEURSAULT CHARMES 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_353342
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    A brilliant golden color. There is a very perfumed floral nose of hawthorn mixed with aroma of almond paste and a touch of spices. The palate is big and well rounded with a rich intensity of vanilla and toast flavors. This wine represents a great persistence; it’s rich and expands offering a palate of beautiful complexity and density.

  12. BOYER MARTENOT 2017 MEURSAULT GENEVRIERES

    Item #: i_353344
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    VINOUS 94 POINTS - "Pale yellow. Reserved aromas of tangerine, tangy peach, hazelnut and spicy oak are complicated by wet-stone minerality. At once thick and piquant, conveying a racier character than the broader, silkier Charmes. Classic dense, vibrant Genevrières with a long, slowly mounting finish that throws off notes of white truffle and flowers. This is superb. -- Stephen Tanzer"

  15. CAROLINE MOREY 2018 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1ER CRU VERGERS

    Item #: i_351330
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Domaine Caroline Morey Chassagne-Montrachet Vergers Premier Cru is grown directly below 1er Cru Chaumées. The vineyard is home to 60+ year old vines and this sustainably farmed Chardonnay is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    BURGHOUND 92 POINTS - " In contrast to the prior wines, here there is enough sulfur to dominate the underlying fruit. Otherwise there is good richness to the relatively full-bodied flavors that possess good if not special mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a clean, very dry and youthfully austere finale. Lovely."

  18. DAVID CROIX 2016 CORTON CHARLEMAGNE

    Item #: i_351598
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The vineyards are farmed organically. The only thing David Croix doesn’t like in 2016 is the lack of volume. He was full of praise for the quality of the vintage, explaining that the grapes were very healthy at harvest despite the difficult season, and said the aromas in the winery during fermentation were glorious. He describes the wines as “harmonious, with nothing that is out of balance”. No Bourgogne was made this year, there are tiny volumes of village wines and several of the Beaune Premiers Crus have been blended to make a single wine. In fact, only Corton-Charlemagne has achieved anything like a normal yield. This has delicious red fruit and almost endless strawberry and juicy cherry flavours- although this is not a massive wine. The 60-year-old vines are planted on shallow topsoil with lots of iron oxide which gives the dense tannic structure.

  19. DOMAINE DES COMTES LAFON 2017 MEURSAULT CLOS DE LA BARONNE

    Item #: i_350357
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    2017 was an incredibly successful vintage in Meursault, reaching the heights of the best vintages of the last decade. In fact the Wine Advocate and Vinous have rated the 2017 White Burgundy vintage overall just one point shy of the epic and uber-popular 2014 vintage.
    John Gilman declares, "The white wines have the cut, energy and mineral drive of the very best white wines of the vintage... The overall lineup of 2017s from Dominique Lafon is simply outstanding in this vintage and no one is going to be disappointed with any bottle that they are lucky enough to come across in the market."

  20. DOMAINE FRANCOIS MIKULSKI 2016 MEURSAULT 1ER CRU CHARMES

    Item #: i_351992
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The vines are cultivated using non-certified organic methods

    By ageing with just 20% in new barrels, and the rest in barrels that have held one, two or three wines, we preserve the unique character of the terroir. This is a Premier Cru with a nose of mimosa honey, Turkish Delight, followed by flowers, carnation-lilac-violet, bergamot-nutmeg spice… a mouthfeel of poached white fruits, grilled hazelnuts, white chocolate, sappy, sensual, an intense finish, long in the mouth.

  21. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2016 MEURSAULT SOUS LA DOS D'ANE 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_351266
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 93
    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "A rich style, with lemon cake, apple and sweet spice flavors buoyed by vivid acidity. There is concentration and intensity midpalate, and the finish lingers, concluding on a mineral note. Drink now through 2024. 50 cases imported."

    BURGHOUND 92 POINTS - "This is also quite reduced and unreadable. Otherwise there is fine richness to the seductively textured and caressing middle weight flavors that display more obvious minerality on the mildly austere, bone dry and focused finale where a hint of wood surfaces."

  22. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2016 PULIGNY LES FOLATIERES 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_350948
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 94
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "This white starts out rich and creamy, offering lemon cake, peach, spring blossom and pastry flavors, gaining focus on the finish, where the vibrant structure emerges. Fine length."

    VINOUS 92 - 94 POINTS - "(just 25 hectoliters per hectare produced, due to frost and some incidence of mildew and oidium): Pale yellow. Musky ripe peach and wild flowers on the nose and palate. Distinctly salty, tactile and energetic, conveying a strong impression of site character. The mid-palate fruit is currently a bit suppressed but this energetic wine builds slowly on the back end and saturates the palate with saline minerality."

    BURGHOUND 91 - 94 POINTS - "A ripe yet cool and airy nose is comprised by notes of green apple, citrus zest, pear and once again, plenty of floral influence. The notably rich and generously proportioned flavors exude both minerality and salinity on the beautifully complex finale. Despite the richness the mid-palate mouth feel is actually based more on finesse and refinement than usual. Excellent."

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 - 96 POINTS,
    JOHN GILMAN 95 POINTS,
    BURGHOUND 93 - 95 POINTS
    - "Divided into three separate parcels, two in Puligny and one in Chassagne, the Leflaive holdings in Bâtard amount to a more than satisfactory 1.5ha. Rich, concentrated and well upholstered, this is a plush, dense, palate-coating white that flirts with exotic fruit but finishes with focussed, chalky minerality. Drinking Window 2021 - 2027."

  24. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2017 BIENVENUES BATARD MONTRACHET

    Item #: i_352931
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    DECANTER 97 POINTS - "Bienvenues is generally less powerful than Bâtard at Leflaive, and that's certainly the case here. But what this impressive grand cru lacks in terms of weight, it more than makes up for with precision. Tangerine and pink grapefruit flavours segue into a fresh, textured finish embellished by oak. Drinking Window 2022 - 2032."

    WINE ADVOCATE 93 - 95 POINTS - "Like the Pucelles, the 2017 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is quite tensile and reserved, unfurling in the glass with aromas of green orchard fruit, iodine, orange rind and creamy new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, textural and fleshy, but taut—even firm—at the core, with good concentration, tangy acid and a bright, chalky finish. Like all these releases, I'm looking forward to seeing it from bottle."

    BURGHOUND 92 - 95 POINTS - "from 45+ year old vines, which are the oldest of the Domaine). As is often the case chez Leflaive, the nose is quite similar to that of the Pucelles with the only difference being that it’s a touch riper. The highly succulent medium-bodied flavors possess equally good mid-palate sap while delivering excellent depth and persistence on the focused, balanced and wonderfully long finish. This is class in a glass and very BBM in character."

  25. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2017 PULIGNY MONTRACHET CLAVILLON 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_345681
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    BURGHOUND 93 POINTS - "An overtly citrus-infused nose offers up notes of relatively elegant green apple, lavender and soft jasmine tea wisps. There is notably better subtly to the agreeable textured flavors that are notably finer than they usually are, all wrapped in a sappy, delicious, complex and focused finale. This could be approached young but should also merit up to a decade in a cool cellar."
