1 bottles(s) of Henri Gallet 2015 Cote Rotie for $47.99 per bottle (SKU2496) Not much needs to be said of the best Gallet Côte Rotie since the 2010 and mythical 1999. it is a stunning wine of enviable depth and complexity.

1 bottles(s) of Domaine St. Gayan 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape for $43.99 per bottle (SKU2552) The CDP is from vines averaging 85 years old. That extra dimension that only old vines can bring.

3 bottles(s) of Domaine St. Gayan 2015 Gigondas In Nominae Patris for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2553) It is crazy complex. No wonder this is insanely complex as this is all from 100+ year old vines and offers a sucrosity only tasted in wines much more expensive

3 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2017 St. Joseph St. Epine Rouge for $32.99 per bottle (SKU2574) What a debut. This is a magnificent value and such a stunning wine it almost made me stand up straight. Sensual, sauvage and seductively drinkable. So delicious. But make no mistake this will age 10-15 years. The length of this wine is dazzling. Palate is juicy and complex with wonderful elegance and terrific high quality tannin.
1 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2017 St Joseph Pierre d Isserand for $26.99 per bottle (SKU2575) This is from an area called Vion which is north of Tournon and is the only St. Joseph producer there. Obviously poor granite soils. From vines as old as 1976. First vintage was 2013.
1 bottles(s) of Compagnie de lHermitage 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge VV de Gervans for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2581) The Genius of the Greek: petit Hermitage – A Crozes as Good as Most Hermitage – The Ultimate Rhone Value Play. Right Behind Hermitage, 100+ Year Old Vines. The granite soils of Gervans are parralell to the great Hermitage Les Bessards. it is better than most Hermitage.
5 bottles(s) of Andre Francois 2015 Quinet IGP for $19.99 per bottle (SKU2596) I Tried This Petit Cote Rotie and Thought It Would Cost $45; Im Selling It for $19.99 Case Pricing. Best Northern Rhone Deal Ill Ever Sell.
1 bottles(s) of Luyton 2017 Hermitage Rouge Allegresse for $57.99 per bottle (SKU2617) She only made 280 bottles. The 2015 got 96 points from Jeb Dunnuck. I think 2017 is better. Thats some neck breaking QPR there. This is ridiculous wine and a testament to the quality of 2017 in the Northern Rhone and specifically Hermitage.
1 bottles(s) of Cave Pinheiro 2017 St. Joseph Classique for $21.99 per bottle (SKU2628) This is a superb deal and great intro into the style of the estate. Beautiful elegant, finesse-driven, mineral St. Joseph.
3 bottles(s) of Nicolas Serrette 2017 Cornas Saveaux for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2683) This is from newish (17 is 4th vintage now) 75+ year old vineyards that Nicolas bought from his sister. The wine is all about stunning purity of fruit and lifting aromas.
2 bottles(s) of Nicolas Serrette 2018 SYRAH LE MOULIN IGP for $27.99 per bottle (SKU2684) It is the debut VDF of the estate. it is basically a baby Cornas. It is from vineyards right next to Cornas. Spitting distance. it is uncanny.
2 bottles(s) of Nicolas Champagneaux 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Rouge La Remise for $25.99 per bottle (SKU2693) This is mimics a Côte Rotie so much that it is eerie. This is a stunner
4 bottles(s) of Nicolas Champagneaux 2016 Cote Rotie La Dedicace for $64.99 per bottle (SKU2694) it is 100% Syrah and shows what Nicolas can do in an utterly classic vintage. This is 100% from Les Grandes Palaces. Vines are 33 years old. 100 cases total production.

As many of you know I have said since day 1 that the sweet spot of 2015 Northern Rhone is Côte Rotie. By far. The wines are magic.
1 bottles(s) of Christophe Billon 2016 Corendies IGP (30 Months) for $22.99 per bottle (SKU2712) I wanted badly to get this over here for Fall as it is the best value Billon wine I have ever had. it is unconscious. For $24.99 on a 4-pack this is a true Baby Côte-Rotie as it gets that treatment. 30 months in barrel for IGP Syrah from Billon.
3 bottles(s) of Bernard Gripa 2016 St. Joseph Paradis for $55.99 per bottle (SKU2715) This is all from Mauves. This went into the regular St. Joseph up until 2016 as Fabrice believed it got somewhat lost in that bottling so he decided to bottle it on its own. I am so thankful he did. The wine is genius and provides a wonderful middle option between the Berceau and the regular cuvee.
3 bottles(s) of Domaine les Alexandrins 2017 St. Joseph for $35.99 per bottle (SKU2732) it is from 90+ year old vines in the southern part of St. Joseph. It is inky as all can be. This is a gorgeous bottle of St. Joseph.

4 bottles(s) of Familie Jouffreau Clos de Gamo 1988 Cahors for $109.99 per bottle (SKU2680) One of the top vinyages ever for this estate. Direct from the cellars.
11 bottles(s) of Leon Gold 2016 Trollinger Alte Reben (offer # 3) for $16.99 per bottle (SKU1983) You chill it for 25-30 minutes in the fridge and drink it too quickly. Its one the few wines I sell like this but man do I reach for it a lot.
1 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2007 Fruhburgunder Centgrafenberg J (July 2018 offer) for $36.99 per bottle (SKU2143) The wine is insane. What a nose. Classic expressive Fruhburgunder violets and super floral. So intense and so sappy with terrific flavor authority. Super complex and hedonistic.
4 bottles(s) of Spater-Veit 2015 Pi No (sept 2018) for $17.99 per bottle (SKU2257) It was super elevated glou-glou in 2014 but in 2015, which is an extraordinary vintage for Mosel Pinot Noir, it is as serious as any 2015 I will sell. The fact that it is $19.99 is truly the cherry on top.
1 bottles(s) of Thorle 2016 Saulheim Spatburgunder Kalkstein for $21.99 per bottle (SKU2277) This has a ravishing black cherry note with hints of leather and smoke. For a pinot noir in this price category, there is great concentration, polished tannins and a long, complex finish. Drink or hold. 94 pts Stuart Piggot
3 bottles(s) of Thorle 2016 Saulheim Probstey Spatburgunder Trocken for $38.99 per bottle (SKU2278) Still quite closed on the nose, because this has just been bottled. However, on the palate there is a sensational harmony of fine-grained tannins and perfectly ripe fruit, yet the wine has just 12.5 per cent alcohol. Great, chalky dry finish. 95 pts Stuart Piggot
4 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2017 Liason for $22.99 per bottle (SKU2408) Our best selling Pinot Noir from Germany or France. Period.
10 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2015 Spatburgunder (jan 2019) for $27.99 per bottle (SKU2451) The wine is as nimble as a Chambolle. it is from Feureheim nearby where Max has his cellar. it is all limestone soils and the color is the first thing that captivates you.
1 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2013 Fruhburgunder J Centgrafenberg for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2466) Easily the best young Walter Frühburgunder. It takes over your palate with a texture that is just unreal. I was blown away by this wine.
6 bottles(s) of Thorle 2017 Spatburgunder Gutswein for $17.99 per bottle (SKU2486) This got 91 points by Stuart Piggot. Neck breaking QPR. This is a silly stupid deal for a wine that is this delicious, charming, a full blown super expressive Pinot with fruit and lovely limestone sap, and a nice elegant structure.
11 bottles(s) of Leon Gold 2017 Trollinger Alte Reben for $17.99 per bottle (SKU2528) It has that dark fruit character that the previous Pinot had albeit on a lighter frame. It has what can only be described as a purple-fruited nose. You know exactly what I mean.
1 bottles(s) of Leon Gold 2016 Spatburgunder Wanne for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2529) The Wanne is one of our most structured and deepest Pinots. It has serious density and always is more black fruited than red but in 2016 there is a red fruit vibe
9 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2015 Pinot Noir Centgafenberg for $33.99 per bottle (SKU2602) There is a sweet fruit aspect to this bottling with this clone that just boggles my mind. It has the sweetest fruit of any Pinot Noir from Germany I have ever had. It still retains amazing terroir character and freshness.
1 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2007 Spatburgunder Centgrafenberg J for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2603) In 20 years we are all going to look back and laugh that this wine was this price. This was wide open. Before this wine was like the awkward teen boy before puberty with the sleazy barely there mustache and now hes gone away for the summer, finished puberty, now has full facial hair, a 5 oclock shadow and grew 6 inches.
4 bottles(s) of Spater-Veit 2014 Pinot Noir Reserve for $27.99 per bottle (SKU2663) This is like those Nuits vineyards that are next to Vosne-Romanee like Bousselots and Chaignots. The wines still have that NSG grit, grip and structure but they also have the elegance, finesse and head spinning spicebox aromas of Vosne-Romanee. As they age they become more Chambolle-like.
1 bottles(s) of Spater-Veit 2016 Slate for $16.99 per bottle (SKU2664) Anyway this is like the Pinot Noir version of the famous Raisins Gaulois bottling of Beaujolais by the even more famous Marcel Lapierre.
1 bottles(s) of Bellaria 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Assunto Selezione for $44.99 per bottle (SKU2007) High altitude, Fassy, balanced, mineral Brunello – so well made; future star.
1 bottles(s) of Bellaria 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Assunto Riserva for $99.99 per bottle (SKU2060) 100 pts, James Suckling.
1 bottles(s) of Cadia 2014 Barolo Monvigliero for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2241) The Caidia is a simply classic, well made, aromatically-driven balanced Barolo that has juicy and ripe tannins but can be enjoyed relatively early.
3 bottles(s) of Cadia 2017 Dolcetto dAlba for $16.99 per bottle (SKU2242) Man is this a joyful little Dolcetto. A Gamay like nose. Nice fruit that really spreads about on the palate. This is very attractive wine with a chewy persistence.
3 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2009 Boca Vigna Cristiana for $31.99 per bottle (SKU2248) The thing about the wines of Podere Ai Valloni is the stunning refinement. Every single wine has it. The 2009 Boca has it in spades. What a wine.
1 bottles(s) of Cian Fanga 2011 Sator for $29.99 per bottle (SKU2279) This is their entry level Tintilia (mind you the Tintilia wines are the Grand Crus of this estate. They make 3 wines that are lower and not made from Tintillia and this is an excellent introduction to this fascinating grape
2 bottles(s) of Alberto Burzi 2013 Vecchie Viti Capalot for $62.99 per bottle (SKU2287) These are 85 year old vines from a single vineyard from an all time great vineyard in La Morra.
4 bottles(s) of Alberto Marsetti 2014 Sfursat for $49.99 per bottle (SKU2379)
1 bottles(s) of Dosio 2016 Dolcetto dAlba for $16.99 per bottle (SKU2403) This has the structure to age. Please do not be deceived by the price – this is a serious wine that will be great for at least 5 years.
1 bottles(s) of Ugo Lequio 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo for $20.99 per bottle (SKU2428) This is a fantastic bottle of wine for the price. Some nights, you want nebbiolo but even if you can afford to, you do not want to drink Barolo or Barbaresco and a well made Langhe nebbiolo will never disappoint.
5 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2015 Barolo for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2445) The wine was still young in April and the tannins were grippy even though it was drinkable. Tons, tons tons of structure. This wine has the acidity and structure to age for a couple of decades or more
4 bottles(s) of Le Strette 2013 Barolo La Strette for $45.99 per bottle (SKU2465) Lots of really fine leather, chestnut, deep cherry, dark berry with cherry flowers, plum skin, lilacs, dried roses and loads of spice. The palate is simply incredible. Delicious dark cherry and blackberry fruit – just stunning.
11 bottles(s) of Costa Archi 2016 Assiolo for $18.99 per bottle (SKU2488) it is one of those wines that is just purely delicious joy but is so crazy well made that a wine geek will love it. it is inexpensive enough. The wine is 100% Sangiovese and is aged 12 months in twice and three times used tonneaux, then 5 more months in steel and then for 5 months in the bottle.
4 bottles(s) of Il Chiosso 2009 Ghemme Terre Moreniche for $24.99 per bottle (SKU2515) A perfect balance between power and finesse. Ghemme. Gimme more Ghemme. I only offer one Ghemme and there is a reason.
1 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2015 Barbaresco for $29.99 per bottle (SKU2535) This is maybe the most ridiculous Langhe value offer we will ever sell. Do not listen to your cheap-o-meter. This is 100% legit real deal classic Barbaresco that is as authentic and stunningly delicious as it gets.
4 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2015 Barolo Chinato for $37.99 per bottle (SKU2536) Davide Gianolios is super profound. it is very hard to describe. The nose has like 1,000 things going on at once and it is layered like the dreams in Inception
11 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2017 Sass Russ for $16.99 per bottle (SKU2543) The Nebbiolo gives the structure and body to this wine while the Uva Rara gives the color. Ripe tannins suggest this can be a short term ager. This was a wine that also, inexplicably, was significantly deeper, richer, riper and more harmonious on day 2
1 bottles(s) of La Magia 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva for $64.99 per bottle (SKU2591) Wow – this is a spectacular bottle of wine. It really combines a crazy level of intense Sangiovese power with terrific freshness.
2 bottles(s) of La Magia 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Cilliegio for $99.99 per bottle (SKU2593) This is a special selection of the best plot in the estate. The plot has a cherry tree on it, hence the name Ciliegio (which means cherry). This is a wine of incredible power and structure. You bend the knee to it.
4 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2017 Dolcetto di Dogliani Cursalet for $19.99 per bottle (SKU2611) This is from 80+ year old vines and they deliver. This is as serious a Dolcetto as I have ever had.
2 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2013 Barolo Vignane for $67.99 per bottle (SKU2612) This wine has the density from the hot year but none of the dark fruit. As I noted it is a classic, classic old school Barolo. A throwback. And a beautiful throwback. Vignane is a terrific, small vineyard between Bussia and Cannubi.
2 bottles(s) of Roccia Rossa 2015 Bramaterra for $25.99 per bottle (SKU2651) To give you an idea of what this wine is like, this wine has the same balance and delicious cherry fruit of Produttori di Barbaresco but with absolutely mind boggling aromatics and palate complexity.
4 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2011 Boca Vigna Cristiana for $33.99 per bottle (SKU2729) The blend is 70% Nebbiolo, 20% Vespolina and 10% Uva Rara. Barely anybody makes 100% Nebbiolo up here as it is cooler here than down South in the Langhe and as a result, pure Nebbiolo has too high acidity and can be harsh
11 bottles(s) of Dosio 2012 Barolo Fossati Riserva for $64.99 per bottle (SKU2877) A vintage befitting the Dosio style which emphasizes elegance and aromatics. Has the structure to age for 15+ Years.
