    WA 90
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90: The pale lemon colored 2016 Petit Guiraud sings of preserved lemons, pink grapefruit and marzipan with touches of allspice, chalk dust and acacia honey. The palate is quite mineral and savory in character with a lively line carrying off the long, chalky finish.

    VN 95
    Vinous 95: The 2012 Brut Ivoire et Ebène is another fabulous wine in this range. Powerful, ample and resonant in the glass, the 2012 is superb from the moment it is first poured. Baked apple, pear, smoke and spice fill out the wine's voluptuous frame, with a hint of French oak that add complexity without being overpowering. The combination of bright flavors and rich textures is compelling. Disgorged: June 2016. Dosage is 3 grams per liter.

    Tasting Notes Wines from the Vouvray region have been on French kings’ tables since the 14th century.

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a delicately textural attack, excellent cut and concentration and a chalky finish. It will be well worth seeking out.

    VN 94
    Vinous 94: The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru, Alain Chavy’s favourite amongst his Premier Cru Puligny, has a taut, stony bouquet that shows a little more vivacity than the other Premier Crus at the moment. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, fine nervosité with a precise finish that is clearly a step above its "siblings". Excellent and I concur with its creator - this is one of the domaine's standouts.

    2015 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Corton Rognet Grand Cru

    Tasting Notes The brooding and inexpressive nose is distinctively sauvage-inflected on the earthy and softly spiced red and dark cherry-scented aromas. There is fine richness to the textured and unusually refined middle weight plus flavors that also possess evident muscularity on the stony, intense and beautifully complex finish. Excellent quality here and this is a classic Corton that should age effortlessly for years to come.

    2017 Domaine Méo-Camuzet ‘Grand Maupertuis’ Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

    Tasting Notes There is a bit more overall oak influence to the cooler and more restrained combination of red and dark berries with similar floral and earth nuances. The bigger difference lies in the tighter and denser medium weight plus flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the beautifully textured, more complex, more structured and more austere finale.

    2006 Veuve Clicquot ‘La Grande Dame’

    $155.00
    WS 94WA 94JS 94WE 94DC 95
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94: The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47 percent Chardonnay and 53 percent Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling, but also refined prestige cuvée; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality. There are coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended.

The palate is well balanced with a tad more weight than the Clavoillons, quite rounded in texture, the oak well integrated with a nuanced, slightly honeyed finish that lingers in the mouth.

The caressing, velvety and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess fine volume plus solid depth and persistence on the balanced finish. This very good effort is very Vosne in style.

    Wine Enthusiast 95: Intriguing notes of earth, dried herb, blood and iron lend complexity to elegantly muted flavors of preserved plum and black cherry in this wine. It’s full bodied and rich but briskly balanced too, with a palate streaked with char, vanilla and spice. A gorgeously brooding expression of Côte-Rôtie, it finishes on fine, firm tannins. Beautiful already the wine will reveal greater perfume and complexity through 2035 and hold further still.

    NV Henri Giraud Grand Cru ‘Aÿ Fût de Chêne’ MV Brut Rosé

    $258.00
    VN 94
    Vinous 94: A rich, sumptuous wine, the NV Fût de Chêne Rosé captures the essence of the Giraud house style. Rich, flamboyant and exotic, it possesses remarkable depth and textural resonance. Two years after its disgorgement, it is starting to show the first signs of aromatic development. I expect it will have a shorter maturation curve than some of the other wines in this range, but it is also exceptionally polished and expressive today. This release is 70 percent Pinot Noir and 30 percent Chardonnay, with 8 percent still Pinot. Dosage is 7.5 grams per liter. Disgorged January 2015.

    WA 92
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92: Aromas of cassis, dark berries, grilled game and smoky new oak introduce the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers, a medium-bodied wine that's satiny, layered and fine-boned, displaying unusually suave structure at this early stage and concluding with a sneakily intense finish despite its elegantly middle-weight profile. This is shaping up to be a precocious Méo Murgers that will drink well with just a few years' bottle age.

    Tasting Notes This is a lovely vibrant style, with strikingly fresh redcurrant fruit aromas. It has a pleasing line of finesse and elegance more often associated with Volnay. It nevertheless has a delicious central core of Pommard fruit and depth. The final sensation is one of depth and great charm.

This is a masculine Volnay, broody at the moment, but it will open up nicely with time in bottle, so don’t be afraid to stick it in the cellar for four or five years.

    Decanter 92: Another wine from the stable of Denis Dubourdieu. Showing great floral intensity on the nose, it’s richer on the palate than some 2017s, with luscious, semi-tropical fruit characters and intense spiciness to finish. Plenty of depth and plushness here.

    JD 93WE 92VN 92
    Jeb Dunnick 93: The 2017 Cornas comes from more sandy soils and was brought up in 3- to 5-year-old demi-muids. It's an elegant, complex Cornas with lots of ripe red and black fruits and plenty of loamy earth, truffle, and spice incense aromas. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, balanced, incredibly classy, elegant Cornas that has terrific tannins, loads of upfront charm, and a great finish.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: Whiffs of horse saddle, smoke and anise lend complexity to rich but restrained black plum and cherry on the nose of this wine. The palate is surprisingly riper, ruddy and voluptuous in texture, but balanced by firm, penetrating tannins. Moderately full bodied and solidly framed, it should drink well through 2030.
    Vinous 92: Deep lurid ruby. Smoke-accented blackberry, cherry compote and violet qualities, along with a spicy nuance that builds in the glass. Shows very good depth as well as energy in the mouth, offering sweet blueberry, cherry and candied violet flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Closes smooth and long, with repeating spice and floral qualities and gentle tannic grip. Made from de-stemmed fruit.

The Domaine has one guiding principle: in a terroir as rich and unique as Chablis, the wines are made in the vineyard with human intervention kept to a strict minimum. This Chablis reveals white fruit notes such as peach, and has a persistent mineral structure. In the mouth a stony sensation (which is so typical of Chablis) with a round mid body and a refreshing finish. Native yeast fermentation, minimal filtering and spending 6 to 10 months in stainless steel. This is pure Chablis!

  • 2018 Prieuré de Montézargues Rose

    $23.00
    WS 90
    Tasting Notes Tavel is the only all-Rose appellation in the Rhone of France. Said to be the only Rose that can actually age (and improve with age). It has been a favorite among royalty since the 18th century - said to be Lous XIV favorite style of wine. Tavel Rose is always dry with fleshy, round body structures (much like a light red wine) and blanched by acidity. Chateau La Nerthe is comprised of mostly of Grenache and Grenache Blanc as well as Syrah, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Bourboulenc all hand harvested from the Estate vineyards that are certified organic. This vivid pink Tavel is extremely aromatic. The nose is complex with blood oranges and graphites notes enhanced with raspberry and peach character. The palate is juicy, with a chalky-mineral acidity and a bright and energetic finish.

    Wine Spectator 93: Lush and rustic, offering raspberry, plum and cherry preserve flavors that cruise through slowly, with light sandalwood, garrigue and brick dust accents filling in on the finish. Reveals a pleasant tug of earth. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2035.
    Wine Enthusiast 95: Firm, sandpapery tannins frame this rich, undulating blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Studded with glossy blueberry and preserved black-cherry flavors, it's an intense, brooding wine shaded by hints of crushed earth and coffee grinds. It drinks beautifully already, but should mature elegantly through 2035.

  • NV Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut

    $95.00
    WS 93WA 90JS 93WE 92
    Wine Spectator 93: A graceful Champagne, sleek and finely knit, with a subtle range of nectarine, lemon curd, almond blossom and ground ginger flavors, expanding on the silky mousse. Offers a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2024.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90: This is a fabulous version of Ruinart’s NV Brut Blanc de Blancs. The wine seems fresher, more vibrant and less obviously sweet than in the past, all of which makes this a far more interesting wine. The trademark profile of lemon, jasmine and green apples is very much in the forefront while the wine’s textural finesse and length are both first-class. This release of the NV Brut makes a great introduction to the wines of Ruinart, Champagne’s oldest house.
    James Suckling 93: A very appealing and satisfying style that fully captures the elegance and poise of chardonnay. The aromas here are all based around lemons, grapefruit, honey, fresh floral notes, stone fruits and toasty autolysis – which is somewhat of a signature for this Champagne. The palate delivers a ripe, flavorsome impression of peach custard and lemon crème brûlée. The acidity is nicely placed and the the finish upbeat with vibrant fruit expression.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: Ruinart is a Chardonnay house, so this wine can be considered one of its signature cuvées. With some bottle age, it is crisp while also toasty with secondary flavors that are balancing the apple and citrus fruits. The wine is well balanced, the soft aftertaste still in keeping with its crisper, textured flavors.

    James Suckling 95: Some reductive meaty notes of bacon fat and flint, with lemon cream and butter too, as well as a light forest berry edge and toasted hazelnuts. The palate has attractive lemon citrus cream flavor. Super pure, there's power amongst the charm. This is a great '06.

    James Suckling 92: The non-vintage edition of Veuve's ros‚ Champagne has a bright-strawberry and raspberry-fruit thread on the nose with a gently spicy edge too. The palate's big on flavor and really exuberant thanks to expressive strawberry and hints of pink grapefruit.
    Decanter 90: Elegant and inviting with notes of heady Turkish delight and rhubarb, while the palate has a beautiful raspberry pip quality.

Blackberries, kirsch, spice, incense, dried flowers, and baking spice notes all flow to a full-bodied, gorgeously texture effort. It's another gem from this team.

    $115.00
    JD 92
    Jeb Dunnick 92: Starting with the 2018s and aged all in stainless steel and bottled in February, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc shows the more medium-bodied, forward, supple style that’s common in the whites in the vintage. Light spice, pear, quince, licorice, and crushed citrus notes all give way to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant white that’s drinking beautifully already. I don’t expect it to be the longest-lived white by Avril’s standards, but it should easily evolve nicely for 5-7 years.

The palate has a super fleshy feel, very plush, very seductive and a very long, full finish. Late, mineral stream here. Drink on release or hold. This will be best at 15+ years.

It offers hints of white flower and brioche on the nose that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate certainly has more tension and a sense of energy compared to the Puligny Village, with good salinity and a light spiciness towards the finish. This is worth seeking out.

    Decanter 92: Surprisingly good. Fresh and clean with citrus notes at first but with time it opens up to show a richer tropical character. Nice toasty notes come out on the palate. Long finish.

  • 2007 Billecart-Salmon ‘Cuvée Elisabeth’ Champagne Brut Rosé

    $240.00
    WS 94WA 97
    Wine Spectator 94: An elegant rosé Champagne, fresh and focused, with the silky mousse carrying a fine range of nectarine and white cherry fruit, underscored by grated ginger, marzipan and saline flavors. Offers a lingering, creamy finish. Drink now through 2027.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97: Created in 1988 as a tribute to one of the house’s founders, Elisabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon's iconic 2007 Millésime Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth displays a beautifully radiant, shimmering orange-salmon color. The bouquet of this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend is as intense as it is delicate and vinous, displaying red and yellow-fleshed fruit intertwined with floral, chalky and citrus notes as well as a noble sur lie character. Round, lush and delicate on the palate, this is a highly elegant, charming, beautifully balanced rosé with great finesse and amazingly fine grip on the long yet pure, tensioned, well-structured and stimulatingly salty finish. This rosé Champagne is close to perfection! A small percentage of the Pinot Noir—from old vines in the south-facing Valofroy parcel in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ—was vinified as red wine and added to give this unique color and vinosity. The other Pinots are sourced in the grand crus Verzenay and Aÿ, and the Chardonnay comes from grand crus in the Côte des Blancs, namely Chouilly, Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger.

    Jeb Dunnick 98: This beauty has everything you could ask for. The blend is heavily shifted toward Mourvèdre, and it offers a mammoth bouquet of black cherries, graphite, cured meats, Asian spices, and assorted garrigue-like nuances. Deep, full-bodied, and concentrated, it stays straight and focused on the palate, with a stacked mid-palate, ripe, silky tannins, and fabulous length. You’re going to want bottles of this in the cellar, and comparing the 2007, 2010, 2016, and 2017 over the coming two decades is going to be a treat.

  • NV Pol Roger Brut

    WS 92WA 92JS 92WE 90DC 91
    Wine Spectator 92: An elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases imported.
    James Suckling 92: A complex, reliable Champagne that would show well in all occasions thanks to its freshness and class. Drawing on all three grapes (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), this has a complex grilled-nut and autolysis character overlayed across red berries and citrus fruits. Definitely a lot of reserve wine character here. The palate delivers lemons, grapefruit, peaches and mangoes in a refreshingly pure, fleshy style. The bright acidity, handy balance and tannins smoothly frame the finish.
    Wine Enthusiast 90: This is a well-balanced, ripe wine in the producer's rich house style. A brighter, more mineral crispness and acidity also come through strongly in this bottling. The aftertaste brings together a mineral texture and full yellow and apple fruits.
    Decanter 91: Pol is always a great Champagne to serve to your guests: a classy, balanced expression of the three grape varieties allowed by law. It has plenty of rich apple fruit along with a streak of lemon zest and just a hint of juicy tangerine. The palate is round but fresh, and has a long, steely finish which leaves you wanting another sip.
