  2. LOUIS JADOT 2016 BEAUNE BRESSANDES

    Item #: i_345293
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 90
    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS - "A notably fresh nose expresses notes of pear and apple compote along with subtle spice and oak toast whiffs. The concentrated and very rich flavors possess a caressing mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm bitter lemon-inflected finish. This too is a wine of juxtaposition as the generous mid-palate contrasts noticeably with the somewhat austere finale."

  3. LOUIS JADOT 2016 BEAUNE LES CHOUACHEUX DOMAINE GAGEY

    Item #: i_351284
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The Gagey family owns vineyards in Beaune, Chambolle Musigny and other places, they have an arrangement with Maison Louis Jadot to make wines out of the grapes in those vineyards. The Gagey family has been managing the Jadot vineyards along with the Jadot family for decades. Les Chouacheux is among the smaller of Beaune’s premiers crus, a squarish, 12.5-acre vineyard situated near the south end of the commune on the slope just below Vignes Franches. The slightly deeper soils in the lower part of the slope produce plump, fruity wines offset by the delicacy characteristic of the southernmost vineyards.

  4. MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN 2016 BEAUNE CLOS DES MOUCHES 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_345630
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Burghound: 92 "SWEET SPOT"
    Vinous Media: 89-90
    Decanter: 91 Points
    BURGHOUND 92 POINTS : "In contrast to the nose of the Grèves the reduction is not subtle and I would strongly recommend decanting this if you're tempted to crack a bottle young. Otherwise there is gorgeous detail to the finer tension-filled and ultra-pure flavors that finish with a touch of austerity. I like the balance and transparency and while this is not quite as concentrated, it's more elegant. Note that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that the firm reduction exhibited by the nose is not permanent."

    DECANTER-91 POINTS: "Aromas of red and black fruit, game bird, raw cocoa and orange rind precede a supple, medium-full palate with a sapid core of fruit, bright acids, and a chassis of fine, velvety tannins. 2016’s Clos des Mouches is shaping up to be an elegant middleweight. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030"

    VINOUSMEDIA 91 POINTS: "Healthy medium red. Deep nose displays red and darker berries accented by spices, minerals and flowers; ultimately a bit blacker in character than the Grèves. Also more airy in the mouth, with a very fine-grained texture and harmonious acidity that makes the Grèves seem almost heavy by comparison. Lovely subtle inner-mouth perfume here. Finishes with nicely delineated fruit and spice notes, lively tannins and saliva-inducing minerality"

  5. MARGUET EXRA BRUT 2016 SHAMAN ROSE GRAND CRU DISGORGED MARCH 2016

    Item #: i_378525
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    JOHN GILLMAN 92 POINTS - "It is not intuitive, but Benoît Marguet always prefers to make his Rosé bottlings from a predominance of Chardonnay, with his Shaman 16 version composed of fully ninety-six percent Chardonnay, with the remainder still red wine made from Pinot Noir. The vins clairs for this bottling spent a bit longer in cask than is generally customary in Champagne, as they were not bottled up for the second fermentation until August of 2017, and the wine was disgorged in April of 2019. It is showing beautifully out of the blocks, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of tangerine, blood orange, bread dough, chalky soil tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a fine core, excellent soil signature, refined mousse and lovely focus and grip on the long and perfectly balanced finish. First class Rosé. 2019-2040+."

    Item #: i_351204
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Decanter: 93 Points
    DECANTER 93 POINTS - "The Mitans is lovely this year, opening in the glass with a pretty bouquet of cherry, raspberry, subtle coffee, game bird and a top note of peony. The wine is classy and deep, with a rich chassis of velvety tannins and a deep core of bright fruit. The finish is long and incipiently complex."

  8. NICOLAS ROSSIGNOL 2016 POMMARD EPENOTS 1ER CRU ***LOCATED AT WAREHOUSE***

    Item #: i_350009
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 94 Points
    Decanter: 94 Points
    DECANTER 94 POINTS - "From the Petits Epénots, this superb wine is the king of the Rossignol cellar in 2016. A brooding bouquet of rich red and black fruit, spice, rich soil and savoury bass notes is the prelude to a multidimensional, layered wine with incredible vibrancy and depth at the core. Only two barrels were produced, with 50% whole cluster fruit. The concentration and intensity of this wine evoke great post-war Pommard."

    Decanter: 92 Points
    DECANTER 92 POINTS - "The Santenots is a success this year, with a classic bouquet of creamy cassis and black fruit, followed on the palate by a rich, powerful wine with a firm chassis of tannin and good balancing acidity. While this will need time, it should reward the patient."

  10. PIERRE GELIN 2016 CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE BEZE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_322308
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 98
    WINE SPECTATOR 98 POINTS - "Expressive and complex, offering black currant, black cherry, licorice, spice, smoke and mineral aromas and flavors. Tightens up on the finish, a good sign in this youthful red Burgundy. The long aftertaste shows its future potential. Best from 2023 through 2043. 138 cases made, 75 cases imported."

    BURGHOUND 93 POINTS - "This is aromatically similar to the Clos Prieur though the floral and spice characters are more prominent. As is virtually always the case chez Gelin, this is the biggest and most powerful wine in the range as there is solid mid-palate concentration and excellent punch though somewhat surprisingly, the otherwise long finish is somewhat one-dimensional. More depth will almost certainly develop with bottle age and my rating implicitly assumes that it will."

  11. PYCM 2016 NUITS SAINT GEORGES BOUDOTS

    Item #: i_351318
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Allen Meadows writes: "Pierre-Yves Colin described the 2016 vintage as "one where the growing season is still painful to think about as we had almost no vines that were spared from frost damage. It's depressing to know at the very beginning that your yields are going to be seriously reduced, which in this case means that they were off between -20 and -90%. Add to this a virulent attack of mildew that kept all of us constantly on edge as the wet weather made it difficult to treat exactly when we wanted. Thankfully the second half of July, August and September were basically ideal and in the end the vines managed to ripen what fruit remained to more than respectable levels. In fact, the way I choose to look at it is that the fine weather in the second half of the growing season didn't save the quantities but it did save the quality. We chose to begin picking on the 22nd of September and the fruit was so clean that there was essentially no sorting of any consequence. Sugars were very good as were the associated acid levels. Despite this some wines refused to cooperate in the cellar as some didn't want to finish their alcoholic fermentations and others balked at finishing their malos. As to the quality, I would describe my 2016s as ranging from very good to excellent though they're not monuments."

  21. VINCENT PINARD 2016 SANCERRE ROUGE CHARLOUISE

    Item #: i_352623
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The Pinards have been passing down winemaking techniques for generations, with the goal of always creating the most precise, pure, and fine wines possible. While many wineries are reverting to these natural winemaking practices, the Pinards have been implementing these methods for hundreds of years on their 17 hectares. They do everything as naturally as possible; intervene as little as feasible, limit yields, harvest by hand, and do not use herbicides, insecticides or anti-rot treatments. They believe that if the fruit is healthy, there is no need to use artificial products during the vinification process. With every vintage, the Pinards want to continue to improve the quality of their wines.
