  1. 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: 94
    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)."

  2. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2017 PULIGNY MONTRACHET 1ER CRU LES PUCELLES

    Item #: i_350375
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Burghound: 94
    BURGHOUND 92 - 95 POINTS - "A discreet, even shy nose offers up attractively fresh and ultra-pure notes of citrus, honeysuckle, white peach and a hint of acacia blossom. There is excellent delineation to the intense, equally pure and seductive middle weight flavors that possess good verve and plenty of minerality on the solidly persistent finish that delivers outstanding depth. This elegant beauty is a refined mix of punch and finesse."

    WINE ADVOCATE 92 - 94 POINTS - "The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles wafts from the glass with aromas of spring flowers, white peach, lemon, pastry cream and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural but tangy, with a pure, fine-boned profile. It was quite reserved when I tasted it, so I suspect it only needs time to take on the breadth and dimension that characterize a great Pucelles, but for now, the wine is quite tensile and linear."

  4. MICHEL NIELLON 2018 CHEVALIER MONTRACHET GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_322665
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 95
    Burghound: 93
    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "A deep and complex bouquet mingling notes of mandarin, apple, pear and peach with nuances of toasted nuts, fresh pastry and nutmeg introduces Niellon's 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, rich and textural wine that's ample and muscular, with lively acids and a long, spicy finish. Reminiscent of a slightly livelier version of Niellon's 2015 Chevalier, this is quite open and expressive and will show well young."

  5. PIERRE MOREY 2017 MEURSAULT LES TESSONS

    Item #: i_345038
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 92-94
    Burghound: 89-91
    WINE ADVOCATE 92-94 POINTS : "The 2017 Meursault Les Tessons is superb—a wine that will be high up on my personal shopping list in this vintage—wafting from the glass with a reserved bouquet of green orchard fruit, lemon oil, crushed chalk and almond paste. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a concentrated, tight-knit core and an almost electric sense of energy, concluding with a long, tangy finish. As usual, it surpasses many of the appellation's premiers crus."

    BURGHOUND 91-93 POINTS "OUTSTANDING, TOP VALUE": "While here too there is a hint of matchstick, it is more subtle on the freshly sliced green apple, floral and petrol-scented nose. There is even better volume to the finer and beautifully detailed medium weight flavors that possess a positively gorgeous texture before culminating in a racy, pure and impeccably well-balanced finish. Chez Morey this is always refined but in 2017 it is super-elegant and highly recommended and particularly so for a villages."
