  1. ARNAUD MORTET 2017 GEVREY CHAMBERTIN

    Item #: i_351708
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 93
    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "Supple and harmonious, this red offers a line of cherry and plum fruit, accented by spice flavors. Focused and balanced, lingering pleasantly on the lengthy, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2035."

  2. ARNOUX LACHAUX 2017 CHAMBOLLE MUSIGNY

    Item #: i_352925
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    VINOUS 92 POINTS - "The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village comes from north-facing vineyards toward the upper slopes – the last vines to ripen, as they can lie in the shade. Containing 80% whole bunch fruit, it has a well-defined, slightly tertiary bouquet with touches of black pepper and pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate presents fresh red fruit, lightly spiced with white pepper, sage and a touch of tobacco, perhaps a little Morey-like in structure, but with a very long finish. Excellent."

    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS - "A more deeply pitched nose features notes of plum, violet and red cherry along with soft spice wisps. The rich and refined middle weight flavors possess a caressing mouthfeel while delivering a moderately firm, dusty and borderline robust finish that offers fine complexity and persistence. A fine but firm Chambolle villages."

    Amélie Berthaut's emergence as one of Burgundy's rising stars by now needs no reiteration, but the quality of her 2017 portfolio demonstrates that the plaudits she has received are amply justified.Berthaut has a magic touch. The wines are alive and vibrant, and offer a truly unique expression.

    Amélie insists that the most important work happens in the vineyards and working the soil. She follows lutte raisonnée farming, with a strong leaning towards organic viticulture: no herbicides or pesticides in the vineyards. The biggest threats are oidium and mildew, but she avoids spraying at all if possible.

  9. DOMAINE BERTHAUT GERBET 17 HAUTES COTES DE NUITS

    Item #: i_350511
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    "A real pleasure to discover this compelling domaine." - William Kelley, Decanter Magazine

    This fantastic Pinot Noir from Burgundy makes an immediate impression. Several wine staff happened to be present when this Bourgogne from Berthaut was opened. Everybody fell in love with the intoxicating aromas of fresh Bing cherries, dark Pinot fruit and potpourri which leaps from the glass. The palate is pure silk with generous fruit yet remains fresh and amazingly balanced. It is truly a wonderful Burgundy on a budget.

    The reaction of the wine staff confirmed our impression of this wine and of Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet in general. We visited Burgundy in June and had the pleasure of tasting the whole line-up With the talented Amelie Berthaut. The wines showed extremely well and we knew that the domaine was in the very capable hands of this young seventh generation vigneron.

    Amelie is the daughter of Denis Berthaut and Marie-Andree Gerbet and took over winemaking responsibilities a few years ago. She previously studied oenology in Bordeaux before making wine in Bandol, France and Dunn in California before returning to her family's estate in 2013. Amelie has taken the wines from the humble appellation of Fixin in the Cotes de Nuits to a new level with her passion and attention to quality.

    We feel so strongly about this wine that we bought all we could get. Unfortunately, supply is always an issue in Burgundy so we couldn't purchase as much as we would have liked. For now, enjoy this terrific value from one of the new star winemakers of Burgundy.

    Once you have savored this wine, take a look at our other offerings from Berthaut-Gerbet, which are also delicious and add a touch more complexity and depth.

    Bright ruby in color. On the nose, expressive aromas of violets, perfectly ripened cherries, red berries, plum and sweet spices leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine is dry and medium-bodied with a wonderful silkiness. The lusciousness and depth of the fruit is striking, with focused red and black cherries, blue plum and boysenberry along with baking spices. The complexity, depth and lengthy finish make this a compelling wine.

  10. DOMAINE BERTHAUT GERBET 2017 FIXIN LES CRAIS

    Item #: i_350512
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 90-92
    WINE ADVOCATE 90-92 POINTS - "The 2017 Fixin Les Crais is lovely, wafting from the glass with aromas of blackberries, cassis, asphalt and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a lavish attack, a succulent core of expressive fruit and a melting but stony finish. I have a weakness for this cuvée, which is hard to resist in its youth but which ages very dependably—in fact, I still have a few bottles of the 1988 in my cellar that are still bursting with lively fruit."

    Item #: i_352069
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 92 POINTS, TOP VALUE - "A more restrained nose reluctantly offers up a bit more deeply pitched nose of violet, plum and anise hints. The sleek, delicious and beguilingly vibrant medium weight flavors culminate in a dusty, complex and sneaky long finish. While this is labeled as a villages, it performs at a 1er level." Drink 2024+

    Item #: i_351627
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    INSIDE BURGUNDY 91 POINTS - ""Dense black purple. I cannot tease out the nose at first, but there is a beautiful, balanced weight of fruit in the mouth, with a fresh mineral finish, lots of stones in the soil, and a saline finish. Nicolas describes it as digeste, a wine that slips down easily. Tasted: December 2018."

    Item #: i_352729

    For Dominique, this is the best vineyard in Beaune. A wonderful combination of elegance and richness, there is an initial concentration of dense berry fruit, which segues into velvet tannins and a crisp, palate-cleansing finish. A very sensual and seductive expression of Beaune.

    Decanter: 91 Points
    DECANTER 91 POINTS - "This generic Bourgogne from François Lumpp comes from the Jambles side of Givry and is made from comparatively young vines planted on clay and limestone soils. It's highly aromatic with well-integrated oak, 70% new. It's juicy and textured, with crunchy fruit, balancing acidity and a spring in its step."

  17. FREDERIC ESMONIN 2017 GEVREY CHAMBERTIN ESTOURNELLES SAINT JACQUES 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_324274
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Burghound: 91
    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS "OUTSTANDING" - "A fresh and decidedly more elegant nose reflects high-toned notes of pomegranate, red cherry and a lovely blend of floral and forest floor scents. There is a lovely sleekness to the delicious, caressing and well-detailed flavors that deliver slightly better depth and persistence on the stony finish where a touch of wood influence arises. This is quite good and worthy of consideration."

    Item #: i_352051

  19. HEITZ LOCHARDET 2017 POMMARD 1ER CRU CLOS POUTURES

    Item #: i_352591
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 90 POINTS: ""This too is softly toasty with an abundance of earth and underbrush characters suffusing the slightly more elegant red currant-scented nose. The nicely detailed medium weight flavors possess an elegant mouth feel thanks mainly to the relatively fine-grained tannins shaping the attractively complex and lingering finish that reflects only a hint of Pommard-like rusticity."

  20. HENRI BOILLOT 2017 VOLNAY 1ER CRU FREMIETS

    Item #: i_352603
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 91-93
    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS : "A more deeply pitched nose reveals notes of dark cherry, plum and raspberry along with pretty spice and violet wisps. The supple and quite round medium-bodied flavors possess a bit more volume if less finesse on the impressively persistent and slightly firmer finish where a trace of wood appears.

    WINE ADVOCATE 91-93 POINTS : "The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets displays appealing aromas of smoked meats, plums, wild berries, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered and velvety, with fine-boned structuring tannins cloaked in sapid and succulent fruit.

  21. HENRI BOILLOT 2017 VOLNAY LES CHEVRETS

    Item #: i_350170
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    BURGHOUND 91 POINTS : "An elegant, airy and cool nose is also attractively perfumed and is composed of essence of red cherry, lavender and soft spice aromas. The elegant, even lilting middle weight flavors evidence notably more minerality on the wonderfully textured, refined and well-balanced finale. This is a lovely Chevrets fashioned in a style that should permit reasonably early accessibility."
