2 bottles(s) of Chavy-Chouet 2018 Volnay Carelles 1er Cru Sous la Chapelle for $76.99 per bottle (SKU3159) Carelles is right next to Champans and shares some of that giving fruit forward quality that Champans has. Real Burg hunters know there is serious value here as will also label collectors. Les Carelles can age wonderfully as well.

13 bottles(s) of JJ Girard 2018 Savingy Les-Beaune Narbantons 1er Cru for $43.99 per bottle (SKU3482) Here too there are notes of poached plum and spice to the aromas of cassis and violet. I very much like the textured mouthfeel of the slightly bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract while exhibit good length on the serious, complex and lingering finale. There is presently a hint of backend dryness, but I would expect it to gradually dissipate with age.
1 bottles(s) of Maison Brisset 2018 Echezeaux for $224.99 per bottle (SKU3490) A vwry respected palate said this reminds him of Liger-Belair La Romanee (2017 is $5400-$6000)

This will reward s
3 bottles(s) of Domaine des Marrans 2017 Fleurie for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3602) Juicy, classic and very deep Fleurie from the old school masters.
7 bottles(s) of Clos de Mez 2018 Fleurie Mademoiselle M for $23.99 per bottle (SKU3630) Dark ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the smoke-tinged nose, along with a suggestion of pungent flowers. Concentrated bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors slowly spread out and become sweeter with air. Decidedly rich, in the style of the vintage, but energetic as well, finishing very long and smooth, featuring repeating dark fruit character and smooth, harmonious tannins that lend grip.
48 bottles(s) of Clos de Mez 2015 Morgon Chateau Gaillard for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3632) 2015 is a stunning vintage as the typical 15 is a bit too rich and tooti frutti but that is not the case here. The Morgon is stunning and will easily last 20+ years. The whole cluster makes the wines sometimes difficult young without an excessive decant but are the reason the wines age and age so spectacularly
9 bottles(s) of Domaine des Marrans 2018 Fleurie Lieu Dit Champagne for $35.99 per bottle (SKU3675) The nose is just insane. You really smell that sunshine but also so much granite and mineral and OMG it is so floral. Iris and peonies. This is totally insanely beyond delicious and also harkens back to something that would be made in the 30s with its brooding structure and ridiculously fine, deep and complex tannins.
1 bottles(s) of Jean Foillard 2019 Morgon Cote de Py for $49.99 per bottle (SKU3831) Is there anything I need to add that hasnt been said already. Classic bottling in a classic vintage.
4 bottles(s) of Alex Foillard 2019 Cote de Brouilly for $47.99 per bottle (SKU3849) Alex is the son of the great Jean Foillard, who perhaps is the most famous member of the Gang of Four. Alex makes a ridiculously small amount of wine in the exact same style of his father whose wines have made wine lovers swoon for decades.
9 bottles(s) of Alex Foillard 2019 Brouilly for $47.99 per bottle (SKU3850) Alex is the son of the great Jean Foillard, who perhaps is the most famous member of the Gang of Four.

2 bottles(s) of Guy Breton 2019 Morgon PTit Max for $47.99 per bottle (SKU3901) This is an astonishing bottle of Beaujolais and up there with Metras and Foillard 3.14 as one of the very best wines of the appellation. It is from a 2 ha parcel of vines averaging over 90+ years old and is just as compelling as anything out there.
5 bottles(s) of Jean Foillard 2019 Morgon Corcelette for $49.99 per bottle (SKU3956) The 2019 Morgon Corcelette is perfumed and expressive, bursting with aromas of plums, raspberries, violets, smoke and sweet soil tones.

1 bottles(s) of Domaine de Colombier 2016 Crozes Hermitage Cuvee Gaby Rouge for $35.99 per bottle (SKU1957) The Gaby is one of the deeper most structured and serious wines one can get in Crozes and what I truly love about it is how it is unabashedly Crozes.

3 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 St. Joseph Rouge Sortilege for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3306) This drinks like a $50 wine. Loads of spice, minerals and fruit on the complex finish. Its so rich and perfectly ripe with stunningly velvety and melty tannins. The wine is so great. The finish is so long that its noticeable and you really cant believe its still going but the lift on the finish is really remarkable.
3 bottles(s) of Andre Francois 2016 Cote Rotie Peintre for $48.99 per bottle (SKU3352) Despite the tariffs and weakening dollar I managed to keep this under $50 as I cut my margin. The price is absurd for a wine this stunning. The wine is as old school as it gets and I have been dying to sell this as it was in barrel when I tasted it in February 2019. It was so memorable as it even outshined the 2015.
2 bottles(s) of Domaine Albin Jacumin 2018 CDP Les Begudes des Papes for $43.99 per bottle (SKU3466) And man it is great. And utterly classic. The color is dark. Almost blue/garnet. You pour the wine and it is aromatically closed but wait as the fireworks start in 30 minutes to an hour.
1 bottles(s) of Andre Francois 2017 Quinet IGP for $20.99 per bottle (SKU3499) The wine is flat out bonkers. Bonkers. The Rhone Red QPR Hill I will die on. The wine is a Côte-Rotie. Except its not from Côte Rotie (spitting distance away) and its not priced like Côte Rotie. This is the IGP to end all IGPs.
11 bottles(s) of Gauthier Brothers 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge for $26.99 per bottle (SKU3520) This is the Crozes I would grab if someone has never ever had Syrah and wants to completely understand it in one bottle. Its just perfect for what it is.
1 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 St. Joseph St. Epine Rouge for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3655) Another beautiful wine from this young yet talented vigneron, the 2018 Saint Joseph Chemin De Sainte Epine is a more structured, mineral-driven wine compared to the Pierres dIserand, offering lots of smoked blue fruits as well as notes of crushed rocks, truffly earth, and violets. This young, unevolved, tannic Saint Joseph has good concentration as well as the balance to evolve for 10-15 years. Do
2 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 St Joseph Pierre d Isserand for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3656) The 2018 Saint Joseph Pierres DIserand is outstanding, offering an exotic bouquet of red and blue fruits, bacon fat, spring flowers, camphor, and violets. Beautiful on the palate as well, this medium to full-bodied Saint Joseph has a wonderful elegance, integrated acidity, and present yet ripe and polished tannins. Drink this classic red over the coming decade or so. 92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck
3 bottles(s) of Nicolas Champagneaux 2019 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Rouge La Remise for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3706) This is mimics a Côte Rotie so much that it is eerie. This is a stunner.

11 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 IGP Syrah Rouge A Deux Pas for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3728) This drinks like a $30 bottle. Its from 28-40 year old vines and spends a year in barrel. Its an incredible bottle of wine given the tariff.
8 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 St Joseph Chemin De Sainte Epine for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3729) What a follow up to the brilliant 2017 debut. This is a magnificent value and such a stunning wine it almost made me stand up straight. This got 94 Points by Jeb Dunnuck. Another Fass star discovered. Its getting old now!
2 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2018 Condrieu for $54.99 per bottle (SKU3730) This is a wow wine. It was electric, so linear, the opposite of vulgar like so many Condrieu can be and full of energy. Its from the top of the hill and not that steep a section.

1 bottles(s) of Domaine de Fauterie 2001 Cornas Vieilles Vignes for $194.99 per bottle (SKU3837) As rare as hens teeth. So lucky to get this.
2 bottles(s) of Mikael Bourg 2019 Cornas Les ptits bout for $72.99 per bottle (SKU3847) The wine is unreal and quite a rarity as traditional Cornas for $75 is not found. Ever.
2 bottles(s) of Johann Michel 2019 Cornas Mere Michelle for $174.99 per bottle (SKU3855) Only made in top vintages, the 2018 Cornas Mère Michel is a tribute to Johanns wife and a play on the French song La Mere Michelle. – 98 Pts Jeb (2018)
1 bottles(s) of Domaine de Fauterie 2011 Cornas Vieilles Vignes for $149.99 per bottle (SKU3876) The wine that started it all for me at Fauterie. The best 11 N Rhone I have ever had.
32 bottles(s) of Compagnie de lHermitage 2018 Cairanne Vieilles Vignes for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3932) There is no better value Cairanne than the Greeks!
26 bottles(s) of Christophe Billon 2017 VDP La Corendies for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3941) One of the best bangs for the buck in the Rhone. 100% stainless steel and pure Syrah love. Gobs of fruit, flowers and game.
7 bottles(s) of Luyton 2019 St. Joseph for $37.99 per bottle (SKU3955) She only made 600 bottles! That is barely anything. This is a stunning St. Joseph and is vastly underpriced compared to where St. Joseph is going price wise. What an epic St. Joseph. This is almost at the level of her Hermitage these days.

1 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 1990 Boca Vigna Cristiana for $58.99 per bottle (SKU2001) Old nebbiolo this good at this price doesnt come around often.
1 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2013 Barolo Vignane for $67.99 per bottle (SKU3166) This wine has the density from the hot year but none of the dark fruit. As I noted its a classic, classic old school Barolo. A throwback. And a beautiful throwback. Vignane is a terrific, small vineyard between Bussia and Cannubi. Thats a nice zip code This is the only cru of this small vineyard that I am aware of.
4 bottles(s) of Rattalino 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Sel. 45 for $50.99 per bottle (SKU3343) The 45 should cost $80-$90 through standard 3 tier. Ive had many a bottle of Produttori di Barbaresco, which I like very much. This bottle beats Produttori di Barbaresco mid tier offerings (in this price range).
10 bottles(s) of Buccicatino 2012 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Stilla Rubra for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3413) An incredible value elite / very serious Montepulciano dAbruzzo that is direct fromt he estate. Deep blackberry and graphite on the nose. Dense palate with blackberry , minerals, some spice. Cornas-like on open. Terrific structure.
1 bottles(s) of Cascina Sot 2016 Barolo Bricco San Pietro for $67.99 per bottle (SKU3447) So refined and elegant with insane precision. Super, super elegant. It just floats. This is incredible. Really concentrated and just bonkers complexity and that insane Sòt freshness, precision and transparency. Superb, actually elite structure. Really deep. A beautiful wine that has substantial tannins as it airs but deep fruit and just incredible minerality.
4 bottles(s) of Cascina Sot 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo for $23.99 per bottle (SKU3448) Drinks great today but a case could be socked away for the future. I see this going 10 years.
1 bottles(s) of Vinding Montecarrubo 2018 Il Piccolo for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3463) The palate is fresh early season wild blackberries. Masterful. Such deliciously sweet fruit. Almost like the best Cru Beaujolais from different grapes made from Syrah by God. Stunningly delicious fresh fruit. And its not just fresh – it has that precision that you only get from supremely talented winemakers.
2 bottles(s) of Josetta Saffirio 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo for $20.99 per bottle (SKU3475) Palate is super elegant and has terrific deep cherry fruit and has top notch precision. Terrific thrust on the palate with big, juicy but significant tannins that leads into terrific juicy fruit.
1 bottles(s) of Alberto Marsetti 2015 Grumello for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3493)
1 bottles(s) of Bellaria 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Assunto for $41.99 per bottle (SKU3498) Yes – its Brunello but its a Brunello that shows the classy, aromatic side of Sangiovese. That this is made this far south in Tuscany is mind blowing.
1 bottles(s) of Filippo Barni 2016 Bramaterra for $26.99 per bottle (SKU3530) Theres a sense of refinement one does not get that often in Alto Piemonte. And at the price of $28 a bottle I dont think one gets it anywhere in the world of wine really.
3 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2017 Grane for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3534) There only a couple of cases left and I had to sell this as its the only Grenache in Piedmont
24 bottles(s) of Cecilia Monte 2017 Barbera dAlba Maria Teresa for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3551) On the nose, you get those classic fresh Barbera elements that you want. That bright, beautiful, joyous cherry fruit. The palate is very Monte. You get that great cherry juice and fruit. Terrific, nice spice. Great acidity but some nice structure from the 2 years of ageing in wood.
5 bottles(s) of Tenute Guardasole 2017 Boca for $38.99 per bottle (SKU3557) I know many of these wines have a reputation as poor mans Barolo, but this drinks like a rich mans Barolo with just a different profile. Its really poetry on the palate. Terrific acid balance and the traditional Fass juiciness. Super juicy. 95 Points Galloni (2016)
5 bottles(s) of Tenute Guardasole 2018 Pio Decimo for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3558) The 2018 Vino Rosso Pio Decimo is a big, powerful wine, yet it retains the sense of transparency that is the single most distinctive attribute of Alto Piemonte wines. Here the flavors are dark and brooding, with plenty of black cherry, menthol, licorice, spice and leather flavors that develop. Readers will find a wine of real gravitas and power. I loved it. 94 Points, Galloni
41 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2015 Barolo for $54.99 per bottle (SKU3565) This wine has the density from the hot year but none of the dark fruit. As I noted its a classic, classic old school Barolo. A throwback. And a beautiful throwback.
3 bottles(s) of Montioni 2018 Montefalco Rosso for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3580) My note on this wine reads Juicy as Frank except the last word was not Frank. For $20 you will not find a more delicious bottle of wine.
18 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2012 Boca Vigna Cristiana for $44.99 per bottle (SKU3583) The nose is very intense roses combined with stunning cherries, minerals and cooling blue fruits. The palate has awesome ripeness and the most elegant and refined tannins. The Valloni Bocas manage to have an amazing balance of ripe fruit and ripe tannins.
1 bottles(s) of Giuseppe Negro 2016 Barbaresco PianCavallo for $37.99 per bottle (SKU3606) This wine is drinking now with a brief decant but it has the structure to age for decades. It is simply awesome and will introduce you to the brilliant 2016 vintage through the lens of or new star, Giuseppe Negro.
39 bottles(s) of Montepepe 2015 Rosso for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3607) From ex Gaja vineyard master now winemaking genius Federico Curtaz. Stunningly well balanced delicious wine – competes with Super Tuscans at 5+ times the price. Much more elegant than almost all of them.
3 bottles(s) of Cascina Sot 2016 Barolo for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3628) This is a steal. I love the wine but its in the Sót style which makes me obsess about it. That precise and electric, engaging style.
15 bottles(s) of Cecllia Monte 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Ca di Monti for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3672) The Langhe Nebbiolo is, for some reason, more advanced in its evolution than the Barbaresco and I think gives a future look at what the Barbarescos will be in a few years.
2 bottles(s) of Cecilia Monte 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo for $22.99 per bottle (SKU3683) The Langhe Nebbiolo is, for some reason, more advanced in its evolution than the Barbaresco and I think gives a future look at what the Barbarescos will be in a few years.

15 bottles(s) of Vinding Montecarrubo 2019 Cuvee Rudolf for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3699) From winemaking legend Peter Vinding-Diers (the winemaker behind Royal Tokaji) – 100% Syrah. A delicious wine. Youthful, rich raspberry fruit. Black pepper, licorice, a hint of black olive. Hints of cinnamon.
8 bottles(s) of Josetta Saffirio 2018 Barbera dAlba Superiore for $20.99 per bottle (SKU3702) This is just a classic traditional Barbera made by a brilliant winemaker.
14 bottles(s) of Petra 2017 Potenti Toscana IGT for $31.99 per bottle (SKU3704) The 2017 Potenti could be a classed growth Bordeaux. It has incredible flavor intensity allied with even better freshness and a sense of real refinement. Its polished but not nearly too polished. It has the perfect amount that lifts it on the attack and the midpalate but the finish is all acid, fruit, structure and tannin clearly detailed and all refined on a piece of spider silk.
11 bottles(s) of La Badina 2015 Lessona for $37.99 per bottle (SKU3737)
6 bottles(s) of Cascina DelSignore 2016 Gattinara Il Putto for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3757) This just a ridiculous wine. Wow, wow, wow this blew me away. This is a super brilliant wine but demands 2-3 years of age. Its so focused and tight now.
22 bottles(s) of Vini Chiussima 2017 Carema for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3775) If ArPePe made Alto Piemonte wines it would taste like this.
5 bottles(s) of Tenuta col Falco 2014 Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito (500 ml) for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3802) What a great wine. There is nothing like this wine in the world. A great Sagrantino Passito is a conversation stopper and a conversation starter. Its like Sagrantino in cheat mode.
17 bottles(s) of Sergio Barbaglia 2016 Boca for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3824) This is a brilliant wine and $44 for this is just a pittance for the level of quality you are getting here. Compare at $50-$68 for less expensive vintages.
5 bottles(s) of Dosio 2016 Barolo Serradenari for $55.99 per bottle (SKU3842) A Barolo of intrigue and character, the Serradenari has so much to offer. Time in the glass brings out quite a bit of breadth. – 94 Points, Vinous, Antonio Galloni
5 bottles(s) of Guido Mazzuchelli 2013 Lessona San Venz for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3843) The nose is just stunningly fresh and grapey. You get some of that hand crushed fresh grapiness on the nose. Also a hint of apassiemento. Im going to try and describe it but this is just one of those wines that once you take a sip, you just want to drink the entire bottle. The palate just is just a freakshow.
2 bottles(s) of Monte Maletto 2018 Carema Sole E Roccia for $45.99 per bottle (SKU3889) This was the easiest 9.5 Ive ever given on pop and pour. The 2018 Carema Sole e Roccia is gracious and lifted in its first impression. A spine of tannin gives this mid-weight, lithe Carema terrific energy, while bright acids perk up the flavors nicely. Translucent and classy to the core, the 2018 is so expressive today. It is a bit less opulent than the 2017, which gives it a touch more classicism
6 bottles(s) of Cian Fagna 2011 Sator Gran Maestro for $54.99 per bottle (SKU3897) It has one of the most stunning finishes ever. Like a garden hose pumps the fruit into your mouth where it lingers for at least 30 seconds. Amazing balance in this wine. Its so so pure. Mark of a top wine. Just crazy levels of juiciness, power and concentration but also weightless. Really remarkable, juicy and so long.
2 bottles(s) of Vigneti Valle Roncati 2013 Fara Riserva Ciada for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3899) You know this wine is a star just by smelling it. Palate is so juicy and deep with such breadth. Big, ripe and juicy tannins. But big. Impactful. So long. Just saps the palate. Truly a fine fine wine. So elegant and nimble yet also has power. Grand Cru level.
4 bottles(s) of Cesare Bussolo 2017 Barolo del Comune di La Morra for $109.99 per bottle (SKU3916) This is the debut vintage and just like the Air Pods Max this is a super premium bottle of Barolo that just over delivers. There will be very few 17s that can attain these heights from other addresses in Barolo. The wine just smells and tastes elite. Cesare has a signature like all the other elite producers
5 bottles(s) of ColleMassari 2016 Montecucco Riserva for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3995) The bouquet is savory yet slightly restrained in its youthful state, as notes of crushed raspberry give way to peppery floral and herbal tones, with a hint of spiced orange. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with pure cherry and wild berry, as saline-minerals and fine tannins slowly settle in, kept lively through balanced acidity. The finish is long and structured with saturating drie
2 bottles(s) of Quazzolo 2017 Barbaresco Cole for $41.99 per bottle (SKU3999) This vineyard is in the North of Barbaresco and has terrific acidity so despite the density and powerful fruit, its incredibly well balanced and juicy. It has that Quazzolo grab you by your socks intensity.
6 bottles(s) of Quazzolo 2017 Barbaresco Ovello for $41.99 per bottle (SKU4000) This is simply much more elegant than the 2016 which was a force of nature kind of wine. It comes from one of the coolest sites in Barbaresco. It has the density of Grand Cru Burgundy – it is NOT a wine with big jammy fruit like a Shiraz.
40 bottles(s) of Tolaini 2016 Chianti Classico Vigna Sette Montebello Gran Selezione for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4011) The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna Montebello Sette is another terrific wine in this range from Tolaini. Bright, punchy and translucent, the 2016 is super-expressive from start to finish. Sweet red cherry, mint, orange peel, spice and rose petal are all nicely lifted in a wine loaded with character. 93 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous
6 bottles(s) of Calafe Vari SAMPLES for $0.00 per bottle (SKU4265)
15 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2018 Basis Pinot Noir for $21.99 per bottle (SKU3182) Pinot Noir this good for $21.99 a bottle? This is a gorgeous wine that speaks of killer Pinot Noir as much as it does a doorway into the Pinot Noir musings of Sven Enderle.
1 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2017 Liason for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3353) Huge nose. Cherry, bowl of cherries, ripe as anything can ever be ripe without being overripe, palate is dense, intense and juicy with serious velvety, sexy oh so sweet tannins and earth. The level of refinement here is something else. Amazingly delicate all the way through but there is power and depth. Amazing vivid fruit. So intense. This is genius. – Me

23 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2018 Spatburgunder for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3749) The wine is as nimble as a Chambolle but is such essential Red Riesling its not even funny. In 2018 it is by far the most fruit-driven version yet.
3 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2017 Merlot for $69.99 per bottle (SKU3865) This is clearly inspired by Pomerol. As soon as I poured it in my glass and sniffed I knew we were in a special Pomerol place. The to be honest its like Neo-Pomerol.
13 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2018 Rosie for $25.99 per bottle (SKU3919) Dry and vinous on the palate, this is an intense and even rich rosé with ripe and elegant acidity intertwined with finely grippy tannins and a refreshing red cherry taste on the finish. 91 Points, Stephan Reinhardt
16 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2017 Rotwild for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3920) This is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Regent. Palate is insanely juicy, pure and clean.

5 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2019 Etraire de la Huy for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3456) It has silky tannins that remind me of high end Chambolle or Volnay. The color is always a deep violet and its full bodied and tannic when young. But with age it gets incredible. The terroir comes through. That Alpine sensibility. When young they are full bodied and tannic (but ripe and juicy tannins that are glorious) but with age comes this insane silkiness as well.
14 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2020 Mas Petit Gars for $21.99 per bottle (SKU3980) This is in the mountain Gamay school of Gamay which for me is 2nd to Beaujolais for my Gamay enjoyment. Sometimes even first. I love the wild character, the flowers, the cooling vibe, the crunch and the purity.

8 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2018 Pinot Noir Bednarik Vineyard for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3761) The wines from Bednarik are always super aromatic. Really low sulfur in this wine as well. Under 70ppm. The wines have a vibrant energy to them that is what sets Bednarik apart.
7 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2018 Cabernet Franc Walla Walla Valley for $32.99 per bottle (SKU3839) This is the best example of domestic Cabernet Franc that Ive tasted. It is a profound wine of amazing depth, character and that extra 5% new world richness that makes it profound.
14 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2018 Pinot Noir Jessie James Vineyard for $43.99 per bottle (SKU3923) This is an extraordinary wine and an extraordinary value. Its also the best domestic Pinot Noir Ive ever had. This wine is a slow burn.
11 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2018 Gamay Noir for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3924) The headline is, If Hanspeter Ziereisen made Gamay in the great old vine Godefroy vineyard of Chateau Thivin. Thats what it reminds me of. Yup. This wine is as serious and joyful a Gamay Ive ever sold.

12 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2019 Muller Thurgau Pur for $23.99 per bottle (SKU3562) This is from low yielding Müller-Thurgau vines and is unfiltered and the minimum amount of sulfur to make the wine stable. The maceration is very long and the subsequent skin contact gives this Müller Thurgau its own touch. But there is more! Only 80% of the grapes are fermented and 20% are left untouched and put back in the tank along with 30-40% of the skins!
2 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2019 Weiss Grau for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3563) The wine is very mineral and citrusy on the nose and the palate is a driving nuclear explosive force that explodes like no other wine in my portfolio.

3 bottles(s) of Martin Muellen 2018 Trarbacher Huhnerberg Spatese Trocken for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3582) The 2018er Trarbacher Hühnerberg Riesling Spätlese Trocken proves already golden-colored and offers a rather reduced nose still slightly under the impact of sulfur (the wine was bottled recently). After some air, this gives way to pear, grapefruit, mango, starfruit, ginger, and smoke. The wine is beautifully salty and animating on the suave and multi-layered palate, and leaves a not fully bone dry
7 bottles(s) of Spater-Veit 2019 Riesling Trocken for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3645) Shows the greatness if 19 at the Gutswein level and under $20
3 bottles(s) of Battenfeld Spanier 2019 Am Schwarzen Herrgott GG for $73.99 per bottle (SKU3667) The 2019 Mölsheim Zellerweg Am Schwarzen Herrgott Riesling GG is intense in color and flavors but still a raw diamond with fine notes of crushed limestones and cool winds. The attack on the palate is pure and fresh, tight and very salty before the wine reveals its complexity and compact structure. This is a very elegant and salty-piquant Riesling with lemon notes and very fine tannins. This is a R
2 bottles(s) of Battenfeld Spanier 2019 Leopold Gruner Silvaner for $25.99 per bottle (SKU3668) Silvaner in the Rheinhessen is called Gruner Silvaner locally but has no relationship to Austrias Gruner Veltliner. No worries as I think at $26 there is no GV in all of Austria Id want to drink over this wine.
4 bottles(s) of Martin Muellen 2018 Krover Steffensberg Spatlese*** for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3693) From vines planted in the late 1970s after the Flurbereinigung, the intensely citrus colored 2018 Kröver Steffensberg Riesling Spätlese *** is based on perfectly matured grapes and opens with a discreet yet concentrated bouquet of phenolic and coolish leafy aromas and notes that remind me of the skins of vineyard peaches. 93 WA

Heebs wines are already revered in New York. What is still missing is a winery. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
34 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2019 Riesling Centgrafenberg for $27.99 per bottle (SKU3738) Theres a certain something about Riesling from the Centrgrafenberg that is just so Teutonic.

The clarity of this wine combined with the precise quality of Centgrafenberg Riesling is always special but this wine brings it into focus in a way you only get in the best vintages
3 bottles(s) of Battenfeld Spanier 2017 Am Schwarzen Herrgott Riesling Auslese for $51.99 per bottle (SKU3743) First of all you have to drink one of these young and go on a journey with it like I did.

13 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2018 Gut & Edel for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3864) This is the only Gutedel Ive sold that is not Hanspeter Ziereisens. This one is worthy of that level of acclaim. It has similar DNA to the great Steingruble from Hanspeter but is a bit different. It has some discreet barrique aging but Max is a genius with framing use of wood that it is utterly brilliant and a distinct part of the wine like wood is on a great white burgundy.
2 bottles(s) of Hermann Ludes 2019 Thornicher Ritsch Spatlese Feinherb for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3884) This wine is epic as it gets for Feinherb. Such intensity. Grip. Such structure. Brilliant. 19 is the truth. After air this gets so filigreed and elegant. The real deal.

29 bottles(s) of Hermann Ludes 2019 Riesling II for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3918) The wonderfully inexpensive, gluggable over-achiever from the legendary 2019 Mosel vintage. Id rather drink inexpensive Mosel Riesling than inexpensive Muscadet any day of the week.

On the palate, this is a concentrated rich and powerful Himmelreich from Zeltingen that is juicy but also tannic, tight and salty. It is from the feared physical drinking category. 95 Points, WA, Reinardt

65 bottles(s) of Domaine Berlancourt 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3765) Its just an amazing value and has the Berlancourt magic but in a drinkable out of the bottle, I cant believe how delicious this is iteration.

1 bottles(s) of JJ Girard 2018 Pernand Vergellesses 1er Cru Sous Fretille for $41.99 per bottle (SKU3815) I call this a wanna be Grand Cru as this is like a baby Corton Charlemagne.

Its mostly from 2009 and 2010 and a little bit of 08, 07, 06 and 04. The vines are around average age of 29 years in argile/sable soils. The wi
18 bottles(s) of Brice NV Bouzy Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru for $41.99 per bottle (SKU3866) It is not often you can find a Grand Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs from Bouzy, a predominantly Pinot Noir village for under $60, pretty rarer under $50, and at under $43 youd have to call me Crazy Eddie. The Brice BDB falls firmly in the insane category.
8 bottles(s) of Brice 2013 Grand Cru Bouzy Rose for $47.99 per bottle (SKU3867) This 2013 Rose is the rose version of the famous 2008 Brice Grand Bouzy Grand Cru that everyone wishes they had more off. They only made 1,520 bottles, so this is extremely limited.
15 bottles(s) of Caillez-Lemaire NV Reflets Brut for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3959) The wine is 50% Pinot Meunièr, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay mostly from from he Valle de Marne. The wine is stunning and is surely my favorite geeky under $35 Champagne we have sold.
18 bottles(s) of Caillez-Lemaire 2015 Pur Meunier for $54.99 per bottle (SKU3960) The wine is a freak show and there is no other way to describe it. They poured it for me first on my last visit in 2019 as they knew Id swoon over it and it would take me forever to get to the next wine. They know me too well. One of my favorite Champagnes in the world.
8 bottles(s) of Francois Boulard 2015 Blanc de Blancs for $66.99 per bottle (SKU3965) One of my favorite producers. Super mineral driven wines with unreal taught focus. This 2015 is epic.
7 bottles(s) of Edouard Brun NV Brut Nature Grand Cru NV for $74.99 per bottle (SKU3966) It is profound and compelling and remember I dont sell $100 wine often. Well here we are with this ridiculous bottle of Brut Nature. First of all this was aged on the lees for EIGHT years. 96 months. Its all from Ay and is 40% barrel fermented Pinot Noir and 60% stainless steel Chardonnay.
4 bottles(s) of Paul Drappier 2010 Grand Sendree for $79.99 per bottle (SKU3967) One of my favorite wines. Always a value. Just oozes class. A worthy followup to the 2008.
5 bottles(s) of Alexander Filaine NV Brut Special for $77.99 per bottle (SKU3968) A prodicer I viisted and could not get off my mind. Just majestic, complex Chanpagnes that I dream about. You will dream as well!
17 bottles(s) of Pehu-Simmonet 2008 Cuvee Face Nord for $67.99 per bottle (SKU3969) Energy for days here with classic 2008 tension and grip.
9 bottles(s) of Le Brun Severnay 2009 Cuvee Exhilarante Extra Brut for $67.99 per bottle (SKU3971) A host of smoke, ash, dried pear and spice gradually open up, but my impression is that the 2009 still needs time, as the acidity and overall structure remain overpowering
7 bottles(s) of Remy Massin NV Louis Aristide Brut for $57.99 per bottle (SKU3972) A solera of Pinot Noir (organically grown) – 18 years of blending since 1995. A champagne of pure pleasure! A complex and fleshy cuvée. A saline and concentrated finish signs this beautiful cuvée, precise, fresh and opulent.
10 bottles(s) of Sanchez Le Guedard 2010 Cuvee Prestige for $49.99 per bottle (SKU3973) The top cuvee of Sanchez Le Guedard. Made from 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. Unreal clarity, depth and purity. Realy long.
3 bottles(s) of Selosse Pajon 2012 Brut for $64.99 per bottle (SKU3974) It is a blend of 70% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier. Very nice nose of citrus fruit, toast, nuts and almonds evolving towards buttery notes and sweet spices. Lots of body in the mouth which is full and fleshy. Smoothness and suppleness complete the qualities of balance and richness.
5 bottles(s) of Cascina DelSignore 2018 Rose Metodo Classico Millesimato for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3756) The palate is high level genius. So well made. Just such tight, precise tiny berry fruit. The finest mousse on any non champagne sparkling wine I can remember. Its $100 mousse. Easy.
13 bottles(s) of Domaine Montessuit NV Ayze Grande Réserve Brut for $32.99 per bottle (SKU4250)
37 bottles(s) of Giuseppe Negro 2019 Monsu Rose Langhe Rosato for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3604) Rose made from 100% Nebbiolo Barbaresco DOC grapes. The freshness of rose. The complexity of nebbiolo grown in elite terroir – a very special rose at a very fair price
