- Item #: i_350575Bottle Size: 750mlWine Advocate: 94-96Wine Spectator: 96WINE SPECTATOR 96 POINTS: "Opens with spice and black pepper aromas, followed by pure cherry, black currant, violet, graphite and mineral flavors. Sleek and focused, this builds to a long, ripe finish of fruit and stone notes."
WINE ADVOCATE 94-96 POINTS: "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs, the famous monopole of the domaine that ostensibly forms Guillaume d’Angerville’s back garden, unequivocally possesses the most complex bouquet this year with mineral-drenched black fruit, briary, cinnamon, cold Alpine stream, strawberry pastilles and orange zest. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. This is very pure and focused, a fine backbone here but there is enormous length as it fans out. There is something noble about this wine
- Item #: i_333725Bottle Size: 750MLDomaine 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.

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."
- Item #: i_322308Bottle Size: 750mlWine Spectator: 98WINE 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."
