  1. A & P DE VILLAINE 2018 BOURG BLANC LES CLOUS AIME

    Item #: i_333545
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    The de Villaines farm three appellations within the Côte Chalonaise, namely Bouzeron (Aligoté), Rully (Chardonnay) and Mercurey (Pinot Noir). Their single-vineyard parcels are stunning examples of what this complex and amazing terroir can yield. Though their wines are quite enjoyable young, their ability to age well is what one might expect from a master such as de Villaine. Much of this is due to both the diversity of his vinestock and his organic and biodynamic methodology in the vineyards, both of which Aubert stands by with great conviction. He also ferments his Mercureys in wood cuves, a style adopted from DRC.

  2. AILE D'ARGENT BLANC 2018 MOUTON ROTHSCHILD

    Item #: i_354343
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ADVOCATE 93 - 95 POINTS - "There was no malolactic fermentation and no Muscadelle this year--both unusual for Aile d’Argent. Composed of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon (harvested August 30 to September 5), the 2018 Aile d'Argent has 13% alcohol and is a little reticent to begin, offering fragrant notions of lemongrass, freshly chopped ginger and lemon tart with a core of fresh pineapples, white peaches and aniseed. The palate is rich, sultry and exotic with loads of spices and tropical fruit and an electric backbone of acid, finishing very long."

    WINE SPECTATOR 91 - 94 POINTS - " A light, fresh style, with flashes of herb, sel gris and white asparagus that are very pure, opening slowly to show white peach and honeysuckle details. Very pretty."

  4. ALBERT MANN 2018 RIESLING SCHLOSSBERG GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_354185
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Enthusiast: 96 Points
    WINE ENTHUSIAST 96 POINTS - ""Lemon and grapefruit zest are subtle but distinct on this wine's nose. The palate shows immense concentration, centered around vivid citrus zestiness that brightens and tingles on the midpalate. There is something driven and taut here, stony and bold."

  5. ALEX FOILLARD 2018 BROUILLY

    Item #: i_353438
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    This highly aromatic Côte de Brouilly oozes with flavors of kirsch, crushed rocks, potpourri, and ripe raspberries. Juicy and fresh, the wine’s tangy acidity and structured backbone lead to a long finish. Drink over the next five years.

  6. ANDRE PERRET 2018 CONDRIEU CHERY

    Item #: i_354266
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 95
    VINOUS 95 POINTS - "Translucent yellow. Seductively perfumed aromas of passion fruit, pear nectar, white peach and orange zest, along with suggestions of jasmine and tarragon. At once concentrated and lively, offering vibrant, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit flavors that are complicated by a suave, steadily building floral nuance. Finishes with a strong jolt of minerality, repeating florality and noteworthy persistence. This wine's blend of power and finesse is quite something."

  7. ANNE GROS 2018 BOURGOGNE BLANC

    Item #: i_353801
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history.

  8. ANNE GROS 2018 BOURGOGNE BLANC CUVEE MARINE

    Item #: i_350552
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Subtle, harmonious - Burgundy from Domaine Anne Gros is intimately tied with the elegant and poised character of wines from Vosne-Romanée.

    While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Gros’ expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible, so much so that Gros’ very limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage.

    Anne Gros cares for her vineyards according to “lutte raisonée” principles, adhering to organic practices as much as possible depending on the conditions of the growing year. Grapes are always harvested by hand. Juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in lined (enameled) cement tanks for the reds, and in stainless steel tanks for the whites. Wines are aged in barrel for approximately 16 months, with 80 percent new oak for grand cru wines, 50 percent for village wines and 30 percent for regional wines.

  9. ANNE GROS 2018 CLOS VOUGEOT LE GRAND MAUPERTUI

    Item #: i_351823
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 93-95
    VINOUS 93 POINTS: "The 2018 Clos de Vougeot le Grand Maupertui Grand Cru has a little more fruité on the nose compared to the Echézeaux, offering cranberry, raspberry and light aromas of damp woodland. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, fine acidity and a lightly spiced, quite linear finish that feels persistent and satisfying. Superb."

  10. ARNAUD MORTET 2018 GEVREY CHAMBERTIN MA CUVEE

    Item #: i_353858
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    VINOUS 91 - 93 POINTS - "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from four hectares of old vines worked by Arnaud Mortet himself. It has a crisp, focused bouquet, quite mineral-driven, with so much freshness. The very well-defined palate features pure red and black fruit tinged with brown spice. Silky-smooth on the finish, this feels very complete and harmonious. Superb."

    Item #: i_354380
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points
    WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS - "Toasty, oaky hazelnut notes fill the nose on this wine. The palate carries these notions and adds creamy texture and ample concentration. There is a little heat from the warmth of the vintage but also generosity and flow. This wine still needs time to integrate. Drink from 2025."

  18. BENJAMIN LEROUX 2018 CHAMBOLLE MUSIGNY

    Item #: i_353938
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Using roughly 30% whole bunches and 20% new oak, Leroux has sculpted a seductive Chambolle that opens with a measure of controlled flamboyance before segueing into something more suave, sappy and refreshing. Much like the Volnay, Vosne and Gevrey village wines, this is all class and is sold well short by the review below.

  21. BERNARD MOREAU 2018 BOURGOGNE BLANC

    Item #: i_353244
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 90
    VINOUS 90 POINTS - "The 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay, which had been bottled by the time of my visit, has a clean, precise apple blossom and citrus-scented bouquet that shows impressive definition for a generic white Burgundy. The palate is taut and fresh with a touch of bitter lemon on the entry, superb acidity and a saline finish. You will not find a better white Bourgogne Blanc in 2018."

  22. 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."
