  1. DOMAINE NICOLAS ROSSIGNOL 16 BOURGOGNE ROUGE

    Item #: i_350007
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Nicolas represents the fifth generation of his family in Volnay. The viticulture of the domaine is inspired by biodynamics, but Nico is pragmatic, and although no weedkillers are used and the vineyards are maintained by ploughing, he says that there are both good and bad things in biodynamics, and he will use conventional fungicides to combat disease. Nicolas makes deeply-coloured, flavourful wines. Purple bright and with defined juicy fruit and very good body. Just racked, so hard to taste, but looks excellent

    Vinous Media: 90 Points

  3. DOMAINE PONSOT 2016 CLOS DE LA ROCHE CUVEE VV

    Item #: i_352243
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 97
    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "The 2016 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is superb, bursting from the glass with aromas of juicy cherries, peonies, blood orange, licorice, raw cocoa and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and succulent, with a concentrated, layered mid-palate, satiny structuring tannins and vibrant underlying acidity, concluding with a long finish. Harvested on October 7 at a comparatively high yield by Ponsot's standards of 38 hectoliters per hectare, this year seems to have been perfectly adapted to Ponsot's style. Vibrant, elegant and expressive, the 2016 is quite different from the richer, more powerful 2015, but in the fullness of time, I wouldn't be surprised to see it surpassing its brawnier elder sibling."

  4. HENRI GOUGES 2016 BOURGOGNE ROUGE

    Item #: i_334109
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    The Gouges family has been vineyard proprietors in Nuits for generations and proprietors of the current domaine since 1919. Domaine Henri Gouges Bourgogne Rouge has a great color and a lovely Pinot nose. Very fresh and earthy on the palate, supple with roasted nut elements.

    Allen Meadows - Burghound - "A fresh, cool and distinctly earthy array of red and dark currant precedes punch and sleek middle weight flavors that offer fine length. This is less rustic than it usually is and it's worth considering."

  5. HENRI GOUGES 2016 NUIT ST GEORGES

    Item #: i_351457
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    JOHN GILMAN 91 POINTS - "The 2016 Nuits AC had just been racked the day before my visit and had its SO2 adjusted a touch as well, and yet the wine was in good form and easy to taste! The bouquet is deep and quite sappy this year (perhaps from the addition of some Chaignots?), jumping from the glass in a lovely mix of black cherries, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, venison, dark soil tones and raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with fine focus and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a long, vibrant and tangy finish. Fine, fine AC. 2024-2060+."

    ALLEN MEADOWS, BURGHOUND 89 - 91 POINTS - "from 4 different parcels scattered above and below the 1ers and the blend of vines averages about 35 years of age; in 2016 it also includes the production from Les Chaignots and Les Chênes Carteaux. A more deeply pitched nose is composed by notes of plum, dark raspberry, earth and a hint of wood. There is excellent volume to the relatively sleek medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a firm finish that is also less rustic than usual. This too is worth checking out."

  6. HENRI GOUGES 2016 NUITS ST GEORGES 1ER CRU LES VAUCRAINS

    Item #: i_351458
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 91 - 94 POINTS - "A brooding nose only reluctantly reveals notes of ripe and ultra-fresh dark currant, earth and a smoked game nuance. There is outstanding density to the powerful, robust and bold big-bodied flavors that possess seriously good concentration where the sap does a good job of buffering the very firm tannic spine shaping the superbly persistent finish. This is textbook Vaucrains and as such, it's going to need extended."

  7. HUBERT LIGNIER 2016 GEVREY CHAMBERTIN LES SEUVREES

    Item #: i_352256
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 91-93
    ROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS: "The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin les Seuvrées comes from 60- to 70-year-old vines and included 30% whole-bunch fruit. This has a more refined and precise bouquet than the la Justice thanks to the effortlessly pure red fruit intertwined with cold stone/limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a killer line of acidity and a brightness on the finish that is a pure joy. This is a superb village cru, one of the best that I encountered this vintage."

  11. JEAN GRIVOT 2016 NUITS ST GEORGE AUX BOUDOTS 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_333725
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Domaine Jean Grivot is among the great names in Burgundian wine. Étienne Grivot and his wife Marielle (Patrick Bize's sister) took over from Étienne’s father Jean Grivot in 1987. The cellar is in Vosne-Romanée where most of their vineyards are located. Étienne believes in farming with minimal impact to the environment and eschews the use of chemicals in the vineyard. Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Boudots 1er cru lies in the “Zone Vosnoise” or northern end of Nuits-Saint-Georges just below Les Damodes. It borders Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er just to its north. Its position slightly lower on the slope with deep soil full of pebbles results in a richer and fuller wine.The wine shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and purple flowers. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in 30-60% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla, toast, and baking spices.

    Item #: i_350856
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Burghound: 88-91
    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS - "A more elegant and really quite pretty nose offers up a ripe and fresh blend of plum, dark cherry and spice, all of which is trimmed in subtle wood. The generous, fleshy and very round medium-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive mid-palate mouthfeel while exhibiting good length on the delicious finale that also flashes a touch of youthful austere."

  14. JEAN TARDY 2016 FIXIN LA PLACE

    Item #: i_351968
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The lieu-dit, near Fissey. 40-45 year-old vines, near the route de grand cru. Deep red fruit, more floral with air. More dimension of pretty fresh flavour, mouth-watering over a base of modest tannin. Delicious and with good concentration too. Long, slightly floral in the finish. Lovely wine again.

    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND - "A ripe and agreeably fresh nose reflects notes of plum, dark currant and plenty of earth character. The racy, intense and solidly concentrated flavors brim with minerality that carries over to the rustic and delicious finish."

  17. LE MOINE 2016 CHAMBOLLE MUSIGNY HAUTS DOIX

    Item #: i_351668
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    VINOUS 95 POINTS - "Bright medium ruby. Very dark, discreet scents of black raspberry, crème de cassis, licorice and flowers; rather Musigny-like. Densely packed, intense and energetic, boasting terrific savory minerality and inner-mouth violet lift. There's no easy sweetness here but this wine communicates a crystalline quality and finishes with slowly mounting length and utterly noble tannins. Amazingly, the yield was normal in 2016; in fact, Saouma told me that the grower actually carried out a green harvest."

    BURGHOUND 93 POINTS - "Whiffs of raspberry, red currant and cherry enjoy added breadth in the form of spice, floral and orange pekoe tea. The much sleeker and more refined if substantially less powerful and muscular flavors possess a lacy mouth feel that carries over to the youthfully austere finale. This is very Chambolle in style."
