  2. BOUCHARD PER & FILS 2014 CORTON CHARLEMAGNE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_345912
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 93
    Burghound: 94
    Vinous Media: 94
    BURGHOUND 94 POINTS: " Mild notes of wood and reduction mask the underlying fruit though I can say that it appears to be ripe. Otherwise there is outstanding volume and concentration to the big-bodied and openly muscular flavors that exhibit evident power and punch on the hugely long finale. This is presently very compact and like the Perrières very clearly built to age. I should note that while this is certainly going to need time it is not especially austere and I suspect that it will begin to drink well after only 5-ish years or so if that's your preference."

    VINOUS-TANZER 94 POINTS: "Highly complex, soil-driven aromas of lime blossom, menthol, white pepper, mint and musky flowers. Utterly seamless and suave but very youthfully unevolved, with fresh citrus and mineral flavors complicated by sexy brown spices. A wonderfully subtle, lemony, penetrating wine with great flavor intensity and near-perfect acid balance. Most impressive today on the very subtle, slowly mounting, ultimately palate-staining finish. Conveys an impression of nobility without huge weight or power. Bouchard has bottled a splendid set of grand crus in 2014."

  3. CHATEAU LA NERTHE 2014 CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE

    Item #: i_344246
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Winemaker Notes - Dark red, with a purple border. The nose is rich, pure, and complex, with notes of black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, lots of roundness, with soft refined tannins. Finish is long, with notes of black cherry, black berry, and a silky texture. A feeling of youth and freshness emerges. A wine with great cellaring potential and with an impressive aromatic expression. Pairs well with most red meat dishes, particularly beef and lamb, or game dishes such as wild boar. An ideal accompaniment to winter casseroles – a cassoulet of duck confit with hearty and complex flavors is a terrific choice. Beef bourguignon is an equally nice pairing.

    Item #: i_350965
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 90
    WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "This has a solid core of plum paste and currant preserve flavors, wrapped in licorice threads and backed by a hint of bay for contrast on the finish. Shows bit of grip. Well done. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2024. 4,500 cases made."

  7. COFFINET DUVERNAY 2014 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1ER CRU LES FAIRENDES

    Item #: i_352164
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE & SPIRITS 94 POINTS "Year’s Best White Burgundy": "“One of the prized parcels in Philippe Duvernay and Laura Coffinet's domaine, Fairendes lies in the upper,northern sector of Morgeot, where the thin, rocky soil created a dramatic 2014, a brash, fleshy, naked chardonnay. The cool lime flavor and gracious acidity makes it racy, while persistent minerality gives it an enoki mushroom savor. Several panelists called it out for being sexy and classical. I found it lively, with awesome complexity for a premier cru wine.”

  9. D66 2014 VIN DE PAYS DES COTES CATALANES

    Item #: i_333501
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 93
    Dave Phinney's D66 Cotes Catalanes adds more depth and concentration and includes some Syrah and Carignan in the Grenache dominant blend. This takes it up a notch and is a very crowd-pleasing wine.

    ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS - "A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and a splash of Carignan, the 2014 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 IGP spent ten months in roughly 30% new barrels. This inky colored, downright sexy 2014 offers terrific notes of blueberries, blackberries, violets and chalky minerality. Big, concentrated and textured, yet still playing in the more elegant style of the 2014 vintage, this beauty will drink well for a decade."

  10. DOMAINE BERTHAUT-GERBET 2014 FIXIN LES CRAIS

    Item #: i_350512
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ADVOCATE 90-92 POINTS - "The 2016 Fixin Les Crais was taken directly from tank and will include 20% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet with raspberry and crushed strawberry notes, a touch of vanilla pod developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, slightly chalky in texture and with plenty of freshness on the finish. This is a step up from the Fixin Village."

  12. DOMAINE DES BEAUMONT 2014 MOREY ST DENIS 1ER CRU LES MILLANDES

    Item #: i_351628
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    From 88 year-old vines, the oldest parcel of the domaine. A cushioned, deep, textured almost dark-fruity-chocolate nose. Mouth-filling, a little tannin plenty of supple structure, with a slightly more mineral and saline mid-palate and finish. Good flavour here. Very likeable wine…

  13. DOMAINE DUJAC 2014 CLOS DE LA ROCHE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_350731
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    BURGHOUND 93 - 95 POINTS - "This is markedly more restrained with its reluctant aromas of brooding dark berry fruit, earth, sauvage and hints of dried flowers. There is excellent volume, concentration and imposing power to the big-bodied flavors that deliver plenty of minerality and outstanding persistence on the robust but balanced finish. This classically proportioned Clos de la Roche is indisputably going to require extended keeping."

  14. DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2014 BATARD MONTRACHET GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_350723
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Burghound: 93-95
    BURGHOUND 93 - 95 POINTS - "This is also surprisingly expressive at this early stage with a broad-ranging nose that features notes of apple, pear, white flowers, wood spice and a hint of something mildly exotic. The big-bodied yet refined flavors possess a wonderfully textured mouth feel thanks primarily to the abundance of palate coating dry extract that does a beautiful job of buffering the notably firm but not aggressive acid backbone on the hugely long finish where a hint of wood appears. This is slightly finer than usual with a really lovely sense of overall balance and harmony."

    STEPHEN TANZER 93 - 95 POINTS - "Bright, pale yellow. Deeply pitched, slightly reduced aromas of stone fruits, pineapple and honey. Fatter and sweeter than the Bienvenue, then broader and more powerful on the back half, showing a ripe pineapple character but coming across as bone-dry. Less harmonious than the Bienvenue and a bit more phenolic on the back end. This wine will need a good seven or eight years of cellaring."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90-92 POINTS - "The 2014 Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru has a more powerful bouquet than the Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet, very energetic with fresh pear, white peach and citrus fruit. The palate is nicely balanced but does not quite offer the detail and precision of the Bienvenue at the moment. It's a grand cru that will hopefully up its game by the time of bottling, because on this showing, it is surpassed by the 2014 Bienvenue."

  15. DOMAINE ROLET 2014 ARBOIS TRADITION CHARDONNAY

    Item #: i_322361
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Delivers a bright and engaging range of Jonagold apple, melon and pear flavors, with a light hazelnut echo through the finish. Fresh acidity stays well-embedded throughout. Drink now through 2020."

    Jura is located to the east of the Côte d’Or, and this area is dominated by the forested Jura Mountains and provides a geographical measure of detachment that allowed certain traditional wine styles and grapes to persist in the region. A classic Jura boasting citrus and nut character( Hint of a sherry character). A Slightly oily texture and a fresh finish, it is mouthfilling, complex and satisfying.

    “Fully ripe grapes, brilliantly judged use of wood, and delicate use, too, of controlled oxidation to create what Guy calls “une petite inflection noisette” (“a little hazelnut nose”) are all hallmarks of the domaine’s wines, the consistency of which is impressive for such a cool-climate vineyard region.” -Andrew Jefford, The New France

    James Suckling: 90
    JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "Aromas of blackberries and fresh mushrooms follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Hints of walnuts. Most of the wine comes from Castillon. Delicious now."

  18. FAMILLE DES CAUSSES 2014 CAHORS HAUT PLATEAU

    Item #: i_351690

  19. HUGEL 2014 GEWURZTRAMINER CLASSIC

    Item #: i_300182
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS: "Has some of the earthy power and complexity of a grand cru. An excellent balance of white-fruit character with robust minerality and crisp acidity, driving the imposing finish. Drink or hold."

    Tasting notes by Serge Dubs, World's Best Sommelier 1989 :

    Young, lively colour, moderately intense, bright lemon yellow with pistachio green hints, a flash of silver, delicately velvety and silky in appearance. Attractive, agreeable bouquet, not too forward, aromatic, perfumed, nicely elegant and refined. Mainly floral aromas of fresh rose, jasmine, reseda, lily, freesia, primrose, with passion fruit, mango and pear. The mouth is filled with aromas that are generous, yet still soft and suave to flatter and charm the palate. It is almost dry, with an elegant finish that is crisp and refreshing. A wine to enjoy now while it is young and its varietal qualities are clearly defined. Ideal as an aperitif, or at any time, to share an agreeable moment with friends. Serve at 8°C. Serve with cheese : munster, auvergne blue, stilton, aged goat's cheese, also with lightly spiced, tasty dishes, Chinese, Moroccan, Indian, and with fruit based cakes and desserts. May be aged for 2 to 3 years.

  21. JOANIN BECOT 2014 CASTILLON

    Item #: i_399916
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 91
    Wine Spectator: 90
    James Suckling: 90
    WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The Joanin Bécot 2014, often one of the top performing Côte de Castillon crus, is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc cropped at 30 hectoliter per hectare. Being raised in 60% new wood, it has a very ripe and opulent bouquet, perhaps just a little high-toned in the context of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy black fruit, nicely integrated oak with a structured, masculine, tertiary finish that is persistence in the mouth. This is a modern style Bordeaux but one that is cleverly and thoughtfully executed."
