  1. 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."

  2. 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."

  3. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE MALTROIE 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_353923
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 91-93
    Vinous Media: 91-93
    WINE ADVOCATE 91-93 - "Bursting with aromas of ripe citrus, pear and mint that are framed by a deft touch of oak, Moreau's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise. Racier than the more enveloping Chenevottes, it's also more tender and charming than the incisive Vergers.

    VINOUS 91-93 - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet La Maltroye 1er Cru has a slightly reserved bouquet that is less expressive than its sibling Chassagnes at the moment; fleeting touches of citrus lemon and smoke emerge with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a very saline opening that counters the richness on the midpalate. There is weight and power to this Maltroye, yet the acidity offsets that and leaves it feeling perfectly balanced, with a very long, spicy tail on the finish. Excellent."

  4. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 CHASSAGNE MORGEOT 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_353924
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 92-94
    Vinous Media: 93-95
    Decanter: 94
    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."

  5. 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)."

  6. 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. BOUCHARD PERE & FILS 2018 CORTON CHARLEMAGNE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_323111
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Decanter: 94
    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."

    Item #: i_353486
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93
    WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Unwinding in the glass with scents of citrus oil, pear, warm bread, nutmeg and a subtle touch of reduction, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot is medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with chalky structuring extract and racy acids, displaying real texture and mid-palate volume."

  13. DAUVISSAT 2018 CHABLIS PREUSES GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_333368
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Decanter: 97
    DECANTER 97 POINTS - "Priced at the same level as Les Clos – and rightly so given its incredible quality – this comes from a 1ha parcel next to La Moutonne that was planted in 1970. It has chiselled, sappy notes of lime and wet stones, with a bone dry finish, subtle oak and a briney, sea-breeze intensity that leave the palate refreshed and satisfied. Not easy to carry off in a vintage like 2018. The Les Clos Grand Cru scored 96 and the Séchet 1er Cru scored 94."

    Item #: i_350524
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93
    WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is also excellent, unwinding to reveal notes of green pear, white currants, toasted bread, anise and fresh mint. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a more muscular, textural profile than the Clos Saint-Jean this year, concluding with a penetrating, mineral finish."

  21. ETIENNE SAUZET 2018 PULIGNY MONTRACHET 1ER CRU LA TRUFFIERE

    Item #: i_350483
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    Decanter: 94
    DECANTER 94 POINTS - "Dense, spicy and even a little tannic, it has a lovely combination of understated power and freshness, with a tangy, salty finish and skilfully judged 30% new wood. Another vineyard that performed well in the heat of 2018. Drinking Window 2021 - 2028."

    VINOUS 92 - 94 POINTS - "Puligny-Montrachet La Truffière 1er Cru comes from a 0.15-hectare parcel on red clay soils. The bouquet is adorable, offering orange and apricot blossom, crushed rocks and hints of menthol with aeration, and eventually gaining impressive intensity. The palate is, conversely, quite taut and linear, but shows great depth and mineralité, conveying palpable energy on the finish that leaves the tongue tingling. Superb."

  22. FONTAINE GAGNARD 2018 BATARD MONTRACHET GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_322397
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 94
    Decanter: 95
    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS: "Blockier and denser than the Criots, the 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with scents of honeycomb, orange oil, white flowers and toasted nuts. Full-bodied, fleshy and textural, it's lively and long, its rich core of fruit underpinned by ripe acids. Broad-shouldered and expressive, this will drink well sooner than the tighter-knit 2017."

    DECANTER 95 POINTS: "Céline Fontaine sources her excellent Bâtard from four parcels on the Chassagne-Montrachet side of the Grand Cru, totalling 0.4ha. This is an effortlessly complex Chardonnay, combining depth and texture with scented oak, taut acidity and the power and concentration to age. The one-third new oak is beautifully integrated here."
