Burgundy

42 bottles(s) of JJ Morel 2018 Bourgogne Blanc for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3688) Its not a particularly complex wine but it has more soul than a shoestore.
1 bottles(s) of Domaine Berlancourt 2018 Bourgogne Les Champans for $94.99 per bottle (SKU3764) The Champans is their Grand Cru and after tasting the 18, I think it can compete with a large number of Burgundy Grand Cru whites. It has the depth, length, oh man does it have the length, complexity and richness of at least 85% of the Grand Cru while burgs Ive tasted.
14 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. My god this wine is great and blind it can pass as earlier vintages of Equinces. This is a briliant, brilliant value.
4 bottles(s) of Maison Brisset 2018 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot for $89.99 per bottle (SKU3774)
1 bottles(s) of Chavy-Chouet 2019 Meursault Clos de Corvees de Citeau for $77.99 per bottle (SKU3788)
1 bottles(s) of Laurent Boussey 2019 Meursault Les Meurgers for $47.99 per bottle (SKU3948) This is across the road from the great Lieu dit, Meux Chaveaux. Great wine. Just a great rocking bottle of Meursault.
5 bottles(s) of Pierrick Bouley 2019 St. Romaine Blanc En Poillange for $44.99 per bottle (SKU4041)
3 bottles(s) of Maison Brisset 2019 Bourgogne Blanc Cuvee Cassaneas for $36.99 per bottle (SKU4060) Our best selling white Burgundy that drinks like Chassagne Village
29 bottles(s) of Laurent Boussey 2019 Monthelie Blanc 1er Cru Sur la Velle for $37.99 per bottle (SKU4149) Its a stupid value as this is rare (Laurent is the only one who makes it) and spectacular in 2019 as the wine has broken out. The wine has ridiculous energy on the palate. Like insane.
39 bottles(s) of Laurent Boussey 2019 Meursault VV for $43.99 per bottle (SKU4150) I dont know how Laurent gets the freshness he does but he is a master of this. This is a stunning wine
1 bottles(s) of Laurent Boussey 2019 Meursault Les Meurgers for $39.99 per bottle (SKU4212) This is across the road from the great Lieu dit, Meux Chaveaux. Great wine. Just a great rocking bottle of Meursault. This is only from 18 year old vines and has rollicking and grandiose depth.

Germany
3 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 JJ Christoffel Erben 2017 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3573) From the Spice garden comes this classic Mosel Kabinett.
3 bottles(s) of Selbach-Oster 2017 Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken for $27.99 per bottle (SKU3574) Lovely off-dry Riesling from Selbach-Oster.
1 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
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
8 bottles(s) of Juwel 2020 Riesling Trocken for $21.99 per bottle (SKU3724) Always a killer value amongst a sea of competition and it always stands tall. Gorgeous nose of succulent fruit and wonderful minerality. Terrific juiciness and palate presence with loads of gorgeous minerality and finishes with a nice herbal and tangerine streak.
3 bottles(s) of Juwel 2020 Weissburgunder Trocken for $21.99 per bottle (SKU3725) Why do people drink Chardonnay at this price point? Under $21.
6 bottles(s) of Juwel 2020 Grauburgunder for $21.99 per bottle (SKU3726) Echoing depth on the finish here on this Gutsweine. Terrific. Such a lovely expression of Pinot Gris in a racy style.
18 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. Angles, precision and straight lines. Shinmering. 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. Its just a stunning bottle of Auslese and continues to convince me that 2017 for sweet German wine is the best vintage since 2001, until 2019 came along.
3 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2018 Hard Chardonnay for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3762)
2 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2018 Jaspis Chardonnay for $87.99 per bottle (SKU3763) If you open a bottle of Jaspis from Ziereisen its like opening a Grand Cru Burgundy from a top producer. You know its gonna be an unforgettable experience. Oh by the way there are only on average 400-600 Jaspis bottles made each year for each cuvée.
2 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2018 Mussbrugger Grauburgunder for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3798) I cannot emphasize how great a value this is and how good a wine this is. One of the great white wines we have sold and happens to be an insane value. The QPR for this has to be one of the best Ive ever offered here at Fass Selections.
5 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.
44 bottles(s) of Weingut Weltner 2020 Kuchenmeister Hoheleite GG Riesling for $57.99 per bottle (SKU3893) 2020 is little bit like 2016 or maybe like 2018 – 2016 is my favorite vintage at Weltner.
7 bottles(s) of Weingut Weltner 2020 Kuchenmeister Hoheleite GG Sylvaner for $57.99 per bottle (SKU3894) Sylvaner is classik – pure spicy rounder than 2020 classic year. (sic) Classic. We like classic.- maybe more an professional
7 bottles(s) of Markus Molitor 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese (Gold Capsule) for $36.99 per bottle (SKU3949) The 2017 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese (Golden Capsule) is very intense on the clear, spicy, crunchy-slatey and nicely reductive nose. Lush and piquant on the crystalline, precisely defined palate, this is a highly elegant, complex and densely textured Spätlese with a long, complex and persistently salty-mineral finish. Ripe peach and mirabelle notes intermingle with salty-piquant slate fla
8 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2018 Viviser Gutedel for $22.99 per bottle (SKU3983) The second level Gutedel from Zierieisen and it s full of minerals, acid and complexity. Super quaffable!
2 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2018 Lugle Weissburgunder for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3984) This is a single parcel Pinot Blanc from 32 year old vines on jurassic chalk. If you are looking for aromatic white wines, this is really one of the best values Ive seen.
11 bottles(s) of Kuhling-Gillot 2020 Oppenheim Riesling for $28.99 per bottle (SKU3990) An elegant bottle of Ortsweine with tremendous aromatic depth and caressing acids. A brilliant vakue,
6 bottles(s) of Markus Molitor 2018 Zeltinger Himmelreich Auslese** (White Capsule) for $59.99 per bottle (SKU3992) The 2018 Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Auslese ** (White Capsule) is pure and fresh on the intense and concentrated, lemon-tinted and flinty nose with its broken-slate and refined raisin aromas. 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
7 bottles(s) of Markus Molitor 2018 Zeltinger Deutschherrenberg Auslese ** (White Cap) for $59.99 per bottle (SKU3993) The 2018 Riesling Zeltinger Deutschherrenberg Auslese ** (White Label) is deep, clear and intense yet also fine and pure on the nose that reveals ripe and concentrated Riesling fruit with some yeasty notes that give this wine a warm and rich character on the nose. Fine and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, crystalline and salty Riesling with less richness but more purity and vitality o
10 bottles(s) of Gut Hermannsberg 2019 Vom Vulkan for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4039) The 2019 Vom Vulkan, a Schlossböckelheimer Riesling trocken, is exciting on the intense and fruity but also pure and stony bouquet. Round and mouthfilling yet crystalline and finessed on the palate,this is a powerful yet stony, enormously salty and tensioned Riesling that is more open-hearted at this early stage than the discreet and coolish Niederhausen trocken from slate (Vom Schiefer). 93 Poin
3 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2019 Dhroner Grosser Hengelberg Riesling Monopollage Reserve for $55.99 per bottle (SKU4053)
4 bottles(s) of Thorle 2019 Holle Riesling Trocken for $45.99 per bottle (SKU4063) A near-perfect marriage of power and elegance gives this wine compelling presence and the precise interplay of lemon curd, nectarine, wild-herb and leesy aromas, with the impressive concentration and racy acidity, is a beauty to behold. Excellent length. Drink or hold. – 96 Points, Stuart Piggot
9 bottles(s) of Thorle 2020 Saulheimer Kalkstein Riesling Trocken for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4064) What a great nose this has, offering leesy complexity that mingles with great, citrus and mirabelle aromas in a way thats enticing and tantalizing. Serious concentration for a village wine, but no less importantly, everything fits together so neatly and, in spite of the depth, the citrusy finish has a delightfully light touch. Drink or hold. -94 Points, Piggot, 2019
5 bottles(s) of Weingut Weltner 2020 Rodelsee Schwainlate Sylvaner Alte Reben for $25.99 per bottle (SKU4097) If you like white wine, do NOT miss this wine. It is completely outrageous and absolutely trounces every Sylvaner on the market at this price point and 20% higher! I adore this wine and never have enough.
8 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2018 Neumagener Rosengärtchen von der Terrasen for $33.99 per bottle (SKU4120) The 2018 Neumagener Rosengärtchen Riesling von den Terrassen is lovely pure and fresh on the truly flinty, stone fruit bouquet. Sourced entirely from blue slate soils, this is a juicy, round and charming Riesling in the medium dry or rather sweet style. The finish is salty, piquant and grippy and very promising, with some yeasty notes. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. – 93+, Stephan Reinhar
28 bottles(s) of Martin Muellen 2019 Nostel Riesling Trocken*** (Krover Kirchlay) for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4148) Before you can take in all other dimensions of this unique dry riesling, the smell of gardenias almost bowls you over. However, then comes a wave of floral honey and oolong tea, followed by another wave of intensely mineral acidity at the super long and super silky finish. Such an uplifting wine! Drink or hold. – 97 Points, Stuart Pigott
7 bottles(s) of A. Christmann 2018 Idig Riesling GG for $74.99 per bottle (SKU4158) This is a remarkably mineral and taut style with dried citrus, quartz, ivory and brightly squeezed citrus. Edgy and compact on the palate with subtle, caressing phenolics and vibrant, bright acidity. Long and very citrusy on the finish. Drink now or hold. – 96 Points, Piggott
13 bottles(s) of Thorle 2020 Reserve Chardonnay for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4159) This is a stunning wine of incredible depth, purity and raciness. Its the first wine to sell out at Thorle and this why we are on the 2020 which is as good as the 19, if not better. This wine is absurdly brilliant.
1 bottles(s) of Juwel 2020 Fruhmesse Riesling Trocken for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4162) This is when you know you are in the presence of talent. One sniff and sip of this gorgeous, energetic and chiseled Riesling and you will not be able to taste or think about anything else. This site really lets Julianne show her talent at making elite dry Riesling from a top terroir.
8 bottles(s) of K.H. Schneider 2019 Marbach Rielsing for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4180) Deep and smoky with a slew of subtle spicy notes, this is a very well structured dry riesling that is packed with candied-citrus and dried-berry character, but still feels totally bright and uplifting. Very firm, mineral finish that suggests this is going long-term. Drink or hold. 95 Points, Stuart Pigott
3 bottles(s) of K.H. Schneider 2019 Marbach Riesling Spatlese for $22.99 per bottle (SKU4181) Ripe and succulent, yet very elegant, this is a sophisticated Spätlese with a ton of delicate floral and stone-fruit aromas. How about uni sushi? Very sleek, herbal and mineral finish that might challenge some, but we find compelling. And it doesnt want to stop! Drink or hold. – 94 Points, Stuart Pigott
9 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2020 Muller Thurgau Pur for $21.99 per bottle (SKU4187) This is from low yielding Müller-Thurgau vines and is unfiltered and the minimum amount of sulfur is added to make the wine stable.The maceration is very long and the subsequent skin contact gives this Müller Thurgau its own touch.
2 bottles(s) of A. Christmann 2017 Riesling Meerspine Mandelgarten GG for $56.99 per bottle (SKU4204) Still shy on the nose, but theres an entire microcosm of citrusy character in this cool-headed beauty.

1 bottles(s) of Gut Hermannsberg 2019 Niederhausen Steinberg Riesling GG for $42.99 per bottle (SKU4207) Still cloudy in April, the sample of the 2019 Niederhäuser Steinberg GG is intense and flinty on the deep, concentrated, pure and stony nose. Very elegant and juicy on the palate, it has a crystalline structure, good grip and a long, intense finish. This is a full-bodied and quite powerful yet pure, refreshing and mineral Steinberg—an exemplary representation of its terroir. The finish is crystall

4 bottles(s) of Laible 2020 Durbacher Plauerlian Weissburgunder Kabinett Trocken for $22.99 per bottle (SKU4218) This is one of those wines that one grabs when trying to prove how great a winery is. Its a less expensive wine, but in hands of Laible it becomes something so much more. That is the beauty of working with an estate like Laible. It carries everyone in its path. A tsunami of greatness.
3 bottles(s) of Martin Muellen 2019 Krover Paradies Spatlese Trocken** for $30.99 per bottle (SKU4223)
9 bottles(s) of Dr Burklin Wolf 2020 Wachenheimer Rechbachel PC Riesling Trocken for $43.99 per bottle (SKU4233) The ripeness of the nectarine and exotic-fruit aromas is immediately apparent, but its the stunning interplay of mineral and tannin structure with that fruit which makes it so exciting.

2 bottles(s) of Kuhling-Gillot 2020 Chardonnay Reserve for $21.99 per bottle (SKU4240) A brilliant brilliant deal. Chewy and complex and so precise and clean. And its such a value! This is an everyday drinker and Id take it over Chablis AC any day from any mediocre 3 tier producer
4 bottles(s) of Martin Muellen 2019 Krover Kirchlay Riesling Auslese for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4257) The 2019 Kröver Kirchlay Riesling Auslese is very delicate and slatey/flinty on the intensely aromatic yet precise and fresh nose that picks up peaches and apricots. Based on entirely overripe but healthy grapes picked in a young vineyard trained with high cordons and minimal pruning, this is a delicate, salty-piquant and gracious Auslese with lingering salinity and a slatey grip. Highly stimulati
63 bottles(s) of Battenfeld Spanier 2020 Molsheim Riesling Trocken for $27.99 per bottle (SKU4264) “Quite some flint, along with some funk (reduction) on the nose from long sur-lie maturation. Stacks of mirabelle and candied lemon, plus a wide range of dried flowers. Major concentration for this category, packed into a rather sleek body. Intensely chalky finish thats also silky in texture. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.”- 94 Points, Stuart Piggott
3 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2014 Gunther Steinmetz Brauneberger Juffer Rielsing HL for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4268) This is a GG style wine (it is now bottled under Stefans GG line and called GB) and is $27.99 on a case. That’s bananas. No where else besides Germany will you find deals like this. The HL stands for “Hausen Laufer.”
5 bottles(s) of Battenfeld Spanier 2020 Frauenberg GG for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4274) Some people still associate fruitiness and roundness with Rheinhessen wines, but this dry riesling GG has uncompromisingly radical minerality. Tons of dried-flower and herb aromas, but also some lovely stone fruit and citrusy freshness that lifts the long, diamond-bright and salty finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. – 96 Points, Stuart Piggott

4 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2020 Weissburgunder for $20.99 per bottle (SKU4281) The pure Weissburgunder from the boys is rare and Im always excited about this wine. This has a long maceration like the Pur Muller Thurgau and then some skin contact.
3 bottles(s) of Kuhling-Gillot 2020 Nierstein Riesling for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4302) The wine shines bright as a diamond. Its got terrific power balanced with incredible refinement and purity.

1 bottles(s) of Kuhling-Gillot 2020 Pettenthal Riesling Grosses Gewachs for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4310) “Once the touch of funk from long sur-lie maturation blows off, a lovely nose of lemon curd, yellow grapefruit and fresh pineapple unfolds. With more aeration, a touch of floral honey develops. In spite of the imposing structure, this is a very focused wine that has tremendous mineral freshness at the spectacularly bright, lemony finish. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from
11 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2020 Brauneberger Juffer Kabinett for $23.99 per bottle (SKU4356) A very special Kabinett that’s so delicate and silky that, for a moment, you wonder why any other wine would be worth drinking.

10 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2019 Mussbrugger Grauburgunder for $23.99 per bottle (SKU4357) The 1er Cru if you will, with the Jaspis Grauburgunder being the Grand Cru. Im buying a case of this wine and that never happens. The Mussbrugger has a huge nose and an even huger body yet ridiculous freshness. Amazing dryness and beautiful structure.
15 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2019 Lugle Weissburgunder for $23.99 per bottle (SKU4358) This is a single parcel Pinot Blanc from 32 year old vines on jurassic chalk. If you are looking for aromatic white wines, this is really one of the best values Ive seen.

1 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2019 Havlin Vineyard Chardonnay for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4286) This is a Meursault/Puligny cross. This sees 21 months elevage as Evan was going to bottle last November but waited till July 2021 and the wines got so much more expressive so now he will only do 21 month elevage on his single vineyard Chardonnays.
1 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2019 Koosah Vineyard Chardonnay for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4287) If the Havlin was a Meursault/Puligny cross then this is a Puligny clone. This is actually 13.3% alcohol while Havlin is 12.8%.

Loire
1 bottles(s) of Domaine Grosbot-Barbara 2019 Les Maltotes Cuvée PP 13 Saint-Pourçain Blanc for $53.99 per bottle (SKU3854) This is their Grand Cru expression if the previous wine is their 1er Cru. Its a wine of utter genius and one of those why you shop at Fass Selections wines. The wine ups the Tressallier to 50% while lowering the Chardonnay to 50%.
4 bottles(s) of Domaine des Roches Neuves 2018 Clos de lEchelier Blanc for $77.99 per bottle (SKU3857) The companion piece to the great Clos Romans. Outrageously complex and Rieslingesque Chenin Blanc.

1 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2020 Verdesse IGP for $30.99 per bottle (SKU3978) Verdesse is a white grape that is an ancient specialty of the area. Only 13 hectares are planted and one of the parents of the grape is Savagnin. As of 2008 there were only 2 hectares planted so it is slowly increasing. It is considered one of the oldest white grape varieties in the world.
16 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2019 Verdesse IGP for $30.99 per bottle (SKU3979) Verdesse is a white grape that is an ancient specialty of the area.

This is a stupid great wine and a stunning value. I can see this wine being $45 in a few years, a la the Berlioz cuvees.

Spain
3 bottles(s) of Muchada-Leclapart 2018 Lumiere for $92.99 per bottle (SKU4005) I loved the 2017 Lumière, a white Palomino from old vines in the La Platera vineyard in Pago Miraflores that somehow made me think of the white topped-up wines from Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura. – 94 Points Stephan Reinhardt

Italy
3 bottles(s) of Filippo Barni 2012 Cantagnal Apassiemento Erbaluce for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4008) This is a vinous treasure that is why you shop at Fass Selections. Amazing texture. Just great acidity and so long. Flavors of apricot, grilled nuts, citrus jelly, and superbly mineral and complex. So airy in the finish with bits of caramel and charred orange rind. Viscous but also fresh and textured
21 bottles(s) of Calafe 2019 Greco di Tufo Ariavacchia for $31.99 per bottle (SKU4071) There is not another Greco di Tufo that comes close. Like 1er Cru Chassagne with and Italian twist.
19 bottles(s) of Lunarossa 2018 Quartara for $32.99 per bottle (SKU4125) This is 100% Fiano. Only 180 cases were made of a special selection of his best vines. Fermentation is in amphorae. The tops of the amphorae are closed so the wine is not an orange wine (even though the winemaker worked with Gravner).

11 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2019 St. Joseph Blanc Souvenir dAndre for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4170) Slightly reductive yet certainly attractive notes of mineral-laced citrus, sappy flowers, herbs, and some honeysuckle emerge from the 2019 Saint Joseph Souvenirs DAndre Blanc, which shows the classic, fresher, vibrant and focused style of this estate nicely. This cuvée is equal parts Marsanne and Roussanne, vinified and aged in once-used barrels. – 90 Points Jeb Dunuck

Southwest
2 bottles(s) of Domaine Brana 2020 Albedo for $39.99 per bottle (SKU4325) As I said before this is a wine of contrasts. The fruit is exotic and tropical like pineapple, guava, blood orange, apricot and is so vivid and engaging. After much air there is a hint of wild honey that adds more complexity. The palate can be described as dry and intense at the same time and with that comes the enormity, explosiveness and depth of the great 2019 vintage.

Chablis
27 bottles(s) of Sebastien Dampt 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4368) A ripe and vaguely exotic nose mixes notes of apricot, passion fruit, white peach and iodine whiffs. There is again fine richness and volume to the concentrated, intense and relatively muscular flavors that also flash good minerality on the linear and youthfully austere finale. – 90-92 Pts, BH

Italy
2 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.
1 bottles(s) of La Psigula 2016 Bramaterra for $35.99 per bottle (SKU3372)
13 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.
34 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.
1 bottles(s) of Montepepe 2011 Rosso Riserva Speciale for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3568) Im not sure Ive ever sold a wine like this before. This is $50 fruit for sure but $100+ aromatics – quite an unusual asymmetry.
14 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.
7 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2018 Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo Gratus for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3584) The 2017 Gratus, 85% Nebbiolo and 15% Vespolina, is another compelling wine in this range. Ample and powerful, with tons of breadth, Gratus has so much to offer. The 2017 is resonant on the palate yet retains a very classic sense of translucence. White pepper, cinnamon and bright acids give the wine lovely energy to play off the natural intensity of the year. Delicious. Good structure. – 93 PTS, V
14 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.
11 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.
8 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.
4 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.
19 bottles(s) of Vini Chiussima 2017 Carema for $39.99 per bottle (SKU3775) If ArPePe made Alto Piemonte wines it would taste like this.
3 bottles(s) of Tenuta col Falco 2015 Montefalco Rosso for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3803) While the grapes are different (65% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 20% Merlot ) this is basically a baby Montefalco di Sagrantino but you can drink it now with a 2 hour decant (yes a $19.99 wine that needs a 2 hour decant, Welcome to Fass Selections!).
9 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.
4 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.
4 bottles(s) of Ugo Lequio 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3902) This is a fantastic bottle of wine for the price. 2019 is the next 2016 so this is a nice preview. Some nights, you want nebbiolo but even if you can afford to, you dont want to drink Barolo or Barbaresco and a well made Langhe nebbiolo will never disappoint.
3 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
1 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
13 bottles(s) of Filippo Barni 2016 Bramaterra for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4003) 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.
2 bottles(s) of Filippo Barni 2014 Bramaterra for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4004) 2014 is not an easy vintage but in the hands of the right winemaker like it is today the wine comes scores as flawlessly made and just wonderfully delicious. As good as 16 but in a different style.
33 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 Dosio 2019 Dolcetto dAlba for $19.99 per bottle (SKU4018)
2 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2017 Barolo for $30.99 per bottle (SKU4046) The palate is just plain awesome. I easily drank a glass with a lunch that this was served with which was a traditional Piedmontese boiled beef that kind of reminded me of brisket but way better. The palate is just authoritative. Its big, incredibly juicy and shows perfectly ripe and healthy Nebbiolo from exalted terroir.
5 bottles(s) of Giuseppe Negro 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Monsu for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4104) This wine is made from the same grapes as those that go into the Barbaresco. Giuseppe just ages them for less time. Im not kidding. He decided to do this because when he was breaking into the Italian restaurant market years ago, he wanted a high quality wine that he could sell by the glass.
3 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2012 Boca Vigna Cristiana for $45.99 per bottle (SKU4112) The nose is very intense roses combined with stunning cherries, minerals and cooling blue fruits. Sappy almost Burgundian nose. The palate has awesome ripeness and the most elegant and refined tannins.
4 bottles(s) of Podere ai Valloni 2018 Sass Russ for $19.99 per bottle (SKU4113) Their entry level Colline Novarese is superb in 2018. Its a fresh and juicy wine but it also has the subsequent structure of Nebbiolo from Alto Piemonte
2 bottles(s) of Cascina DelSignore 2019 Spanna for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4134) Most of the wines that we sell at this price point are more on the delicious side. And this wine is certainly on that and on one level you can enjoy with abandon. Its utterly delicious, but more importantly for a wine geek like me, its one of the most interesting wines Ive had this year.
4 bottles(s) of Cascina DelSignore 2017 Gattinara Il Putto for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4135) This is just a ridiculous wine. Wow, wow, wow this blew me away. This is a super brilliant wine
23 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4136) This is absolutely a monster of a Nebbiolo and is one of the greatest Langhe Nebbiolos Ive ever had. 19 is the next 16. Trust me.
2 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2016 Barolo Vignane for $79.99 per bottle (SKU4137) This wine has the density from the 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
9 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2017 Barbaresco for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4167) This is maybe the most ridiculous Langhe value offer we will ever sell. Dont listen to your cheap-o-meter. This is 100% legit real deal classic Barbaresco that is as authentic and stunningly delicious as it gets
9 bottles(s) of Alberto Marsetti 2017 Grumello for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4178) This is one of those wines that is just so well made that its a marvel. A truly seamless example of winemaking which totally floored me when I tried it.
11 bottles(s) of Motalli Renato 2018 Rosato for $28.99 per bottle (SKU4231) So this is 100% Nebbiolo rose – so how cool is that? So I really almost never offer rose because roses mostly all have a particular flavor (from the skin contact) of which, frankly, Im not a fan. This one does not have that. It is just so incredibly clean and well made.
4 bottles(s) of Podere Forte 2016 Petrucci Melo for $199.99 per bottle (SKU4236) This is 100% Sangiovese from the hills of Orcia which is an area known for Brunello. This is the finest Sangiovese I have ever had. This wine shows that Sangiovese at its highest level can compete and place in a lineup of the finest Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir or Syrah
2 bottles(s) of Podere Forte 2016 Petrucci Antifeatro for $199.99 per bottle (SKU4237) As noted, this wine has elite levels of deliciousness. Anyone from an absolute novice taster to an expert will be blown away by this. Spectacular. So complete with almost painfully intense fruit. So, so, so juicy and what I like to call slippery. Incredible acidity.
1 bottles(s) of Cascina DelSignore 2016 Gattinara Riserva for $39.99 per bottle (SKU4261) This wine is the absolute perfect marriage of the Delsignore aromatic, elegant style and the density of the 2016 vintage. Its a wine that has it all.
5 bottles(s) of Sara Vezza 2017 Barolo Ravera for $67.99 per bottle (SKU4269) The style is that super haunting elegant style of Barolo that calls to Chambolle as much as Barolo Mascarello does. It has the style of such clear refinement and finesse with just the most intoxicating aromas you can imagine. If you open a Nebbiolo from Sara Vezza, you will have an outrageous aromatic experience
7 bottles(s) of Sara Vezza 2018 Barbera Superiore Villaro for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4270) This is as serious a Barbera as we’ve ever sold and in one year since I’ve tasted it it has only gotten so much better!
3 bottles(s) of Miru 2015 Ghemme Riserva Vigna Cavenago for $38.99 per bottle (SKU4273) Its a shockingly brilliant wine. I could not get over how great it is and what a terrific value this is. Make no mistake this wine had the refinement of an elite Barolo or Barbaresco. This will improve for 40+ years. Its actually accessible now but in 10+ years it will be crazy.
8 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2016 Barolo for $49.99 per bottle (SKU4308) I’ve found that some 16s drink well out of the gates while 17 will need a few years. This was not how I thought things would play out. Elena destroyed 2016 and left achingly beautiful Nebbiolo in her wake. What a wine. Such clarity and definition. Look at that color. Like 1950’s Barolo.
9 bottles(s) of Gillardi 2019 Dolcetto di Dogliani Cursalet for $21.99 per bottle (SKU4309) This is from a DOCG called Dogliani which is renowned for its ability to make serious, bold, powerful and ageworthy Dolcetto. This is from 80+ year old vines and they deliver. This is as serious a Dolcetto as Ive ever had.

Germany
1 bottles(s) of Max Getlinger Wein 2017 Rosie for $25.99 per bottle (SKU3165) This is just an amazing bottle of Rose that also is ridiculously delicious. Its made from extra picked grapes Max tells me. Its mostly Pinot Noir but there is also a little Merlot. Yes thats right which is likely what makes this devastatingly delicious. 3 day extraction. Then 12 months in old 500 liter oak barrel.
8 bottles(s) of Spater-Veit 2017 Pinot Noir for $22.99 per bottle (SKU3678) Unreal purity and drinkability here in the essence of the Red Riesling style.
18 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.
4 bottles(s) of Ziereisen 2016 Jaspis Burgin Alte Reben Spatburgunder for $87.99 per bottle (SKU3799) This is the top Grand Cru at Zieriesen and one of the great red wines of the world and easily on the short list for greatest Pinot Noir in Germany. The wine is lights out in 2016.
11 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
10 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. Thunderous freshness and wow that purity. The palate is so bright and has insane lift to it plus just superb balance. What a wine. So so stunning. Ripe, velvety and substantial tannins and terrific length. This is truly great.
2 bottles(s) of Jurgen Von der Mark 2015 Spatburgunder Suis Je Gentile Ainsi? for $51.99 per bottle (SKU3933) This wine is genius. As are all Jürgens wines. Cherry flower and alluring sour cherry. Deep and feral but so clean. Smells so elemental.
16 bottles(s) of Thorle 2018 Saulheim Spatburgunder Kalkstein for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4067) What a ravishing (black and sour) cherry nose and a seductive texture this concentrated pinot noir has. The oak is already almost perfectly integrated. Super interplay of velvety tannins and mineral acidity at the long finish. Drink or hold. – 94 Points, Stuart Piggot
24 bottles(s) of Thorle 2018 Spatburgunder Gutswein for $20.99 per bottle (SKU4118) A wonderfully fragrant pinot noir that you could easily mistake for Volnay village, this is very elegantly proportioned for the humble category. Love the way the rather fine tannins support the long, dry finish. Drink or hold..- 92 points Stuart Pigott
14 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2018 Kestener Herrenberg Pinot Noir for $31.99 per bottle (SKU4172) This is the 1er Cru and this is where Germany really outdoes Burgundy. In the under $35 category of Pinot Noir Germany crushes Burgundy in the 3 tier system. Just a fact. Todays wine is a 1er Cru quality wine from an elite vineyard site that Stefan has made great.
4 bottles(s) of Gunther Steinmetz 2019 Alter Satz for $22.99 per bottle (SKU4173) This is as geeky as it gets. This wine is peak wine geek and so delicious you will not believe it is $23.99. The wine is a blend of Hartblau, Süßschwarz, Schwarzblauer, Affenthaler, Schwarzurban and Frankischer Burgunder. Talk about esoteric.
4 bottles(s) of Weingut Josef Walter 2016 Spatburgunder J Hundstruck for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4206) This Is The Best Wine I Ever Made. – Christophe Walter – I Gave This a 9.8 – One of Germanys Top 5 Red Wine Vineyards
13 bottles(s) of Enderle & Moll 2019 Liason for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4242) Our most popular red wine. Buy some and see why. This wine single handeledy changed the German Pinot game.
13 bottles(s) of Marbleous 2018 Moselsurscher F Spatburgunder for $47.99 per bottle (SKU4246) Super herbal nose with gorgeous sweet cherry fruit. Ethereal and complex. Huge spice. Palate is so sweet, yet earthy and supple. Wowsers. Beautiful wine that is exceptionally pure and deep. Silky and ethereal.
2 bottles(s) of Hermann Ludes 1993 Thornicher Ritsch Auslese for $36.99 per bottle (SKU4277)
19 bottles(s) of Marbleous 2018 Spatburgunder for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4300) Nose is just next level. All terroir. Gorgeous sappy pine, tree bark, slate, some sappy sour cherries. Intoxicating. Palate is stunning. Fresh and transparent with gorgeous sappy sour and mid season cherry fruit, glorious spice and such purity. Clean as a whistle while having a serious sense of transparency. Juicy.
15 bottles(s) of Matherne & Schmitt 2018 Winninger Spatburgunder for $39.99 per bottle (SKU4301) Make no mistake this is easily 1er Cru Burgundy quality. It was super juicy with amazing, such fine, such poised and intricate tannins dripping when sweet, rich, decadent Pinot fruit. Wonderful acidity holds it all together and makes you salivate. This is an accomplishment like no other.

Savoie
1 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.
9 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.
4 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2020 VDF La Bete for $26.99 per bottle (SKU4054) This is an ancient red field blend of varieties that are indigenous to Isere. It has Servanin, Joubertin, Persan, Pelourian, Gamay and Etrarie dHui and a few others as well. All of these, less Gamay, were new to me and Im assuming new to you. This wine is incredible.
14 bottles(s) of Domaine des Rutissons 2020 Etraire de la Huy for $30.99 per bottle (SKU4055) Its low in alcohol but has very good acidity and makes a super silky wine that is very subtle. 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.

Burgundy
9 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 JJ Girard 2018 Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Rouvrettes for $34.99 per bottle (SKU3736) This wine is just exuberant right now and usually is the most forward of the Girard Savigny 1er Crus. It is wide open with a deep penetrating Pinot perfume
1 bottles(s) of Vincent Ledy 2017 Haute Cotes de Nuits La Vacherotte for $33.99 per bottle (SKU3881) The wine is sick. Awesome. Vincent killed this wine and killed 17. Vaporized it.
2 bottles(s) of JJ Girard 2019 Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Vergelesses for $37.99 per bottle (SKU3952) This too is admirably pure with its combination of black cherry, extract of plum and lovely violet nuances. There is again fine volume to the delicious, plump and relatively sleek flavors that possess both solid punch and power before terminating in a sneaky long and decidedly firm finish. This is actually a refined version of Aux Vergelesses as there is almost no rusticity. 92 Points, Burghound
10 bottles(s) of Francois Buffet 2019 Volnay 1er Cru La Village for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4226) This is a vineyard that is within a whole cluster of 1er Crus in the center of the village. As far as I know the Hospices de Beaune owns most of this very rare 1er Cru. The location is very sheltered and it creates its own micro-climate
5 bottles(s) of Francois Buffet 2017 Volnay 1er Carelle Sous la Chapelle for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4322) This price is just a filthy value. This is always an elegant and very lithe Volnay but in the hands of Buffet it is liquid silk. It’s all fruit and lace
2 bottles(s) of Francois Buffet 2017 Volnay for $40.99 per bottle (SKU4323) Insane Village Volnay from the fruity, up front 2017 vintage. Drinking so well now.
2 bottles(s) of Francois Buffet 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Poutures for $57.99 per bottle (SKU4355) The sun really shined on Pommard in 2019. Such a great Pommard vintage. This is a rare 1er Cru and is truly dazzling.

USA
1 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2018 Gamay Noir for $29.99 per bottle (SKU3505)
1 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.
5 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.
7 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2019 Gamay Noir for $35.99 per bottle (SKU4452) Even better than the miraculous 2018. Deep, aromatic, strucured and very serious Gamay. Reminds me of Cote de Brouilly.
2 bottles(s) of Martin Woods 2019 Pinot Noir Hyland Vineyard for $46.99 per bottle (SKU4519) Stunning aromas. Sweet and spicy red cherries. Strawberry. Blackberry. Deep penetrating aromas with world class clarity. Palate is elegant and refined with intense sour cherry fruit and substantial structure and tannins. The energy and linearity are top notch. Really fine.

Beaujolais
30 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
3 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.
4 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. 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.
1 bottles(s) of Chateau Bachelards-Comtesse Vazeilles 2018 Fleurie Les Clos for $119.99 per bottle (SKU4093)
3 bottles(s) of Richard Rottiers 2020 Moulin a Vent Champ Couer for $39.99 per bottle (SKU4258) Offering up aromas of sweet berry fruit, peonies, warm spices, candied peel and licorice, the 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Champ de Cour stands out for its structural elegance even within this compelling range. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with ultra-refined tannins, lively acids and a saline, expansive finish, it exemplifies the inherent elegance and seamlessness that any credible renditio
23 bottles(s) of Raphael Chopin 2019 Morgon Les Charmes for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4334) Wonderful Morgon that is expressive, ebullient and full of light but intense black cherry fruit. Rich and perfumed. Very succulent.
23 bottles(s) of Raphael Chopin 2019 Regnie Les Braves for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4335) Very elegant Regnie bursting with fruit and planted on the special pink granite that is unique to this area of Regnie.
7 bottles(s) of Chateau Thivin 2020 Cote de Brouilly Les Griottes de Brulhie for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4342) Taken from foudre, the 2020 Côte de Brouilly Les Griottes de Brulhier, from the south part of the hill, has precocious black cherries and blueberry fruit bursting from the glass, well defined and very pure. The palate is smooth with plush tannins, fine acidity and a lovely citric edge toward the finish that gives it energy. Great potential. 91-93, Neal Martin, Vinous
3 bottles(s) of Chateau Thivin 2020 Cote de Brouilly Clos Bertrand for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4343) Raised in foudre and derived from the historic southwest-facing enclosed vineyards of the Château Thivin, the 2018 Côte de Brouilly Clos Bertrand reveals aromas of plums, cherries and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered wine thats quite muscular and serious in this often open-knitt vintage, with impressive depth and concentration—and good tension too. This will reward s
9 bottles(s) of Domaine du Vissoux 2020 Fleurie Poncie for $25.99 per bottle (SKU4560) Another notable success is the 2020 Fleurie Poncié, a medium to full-bodied, elegant and lively wine evocative of cherries, red berries and rose petals. Structurally refined and charming, it concludes with an expansive, perfumed finish. As is often the case, this is my favorite wine from chez Chermette this year. 94 Points, William Kelley

Rhone
6 bottles(s) of Domaine St. Gayan 2015 Gigondas In Nominae Patris for $43.99 per bottle (SKU3741)
1 bottles(s) of Louis Sozet 2017 Cornas for $94.99 per bottle (SKU3755) As we all think we know what Cornas is and what great Cornas is, then we taste a Louis Sozet Cornas. I took a sip and I remember thinking to myself this is something that I dont taste every day.
28 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!
6 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.
4 bottles(s) of Bernard Burgaud 2019 Cote Rotie for $77.99 per bottle (SKU4017) The most Burgundian Cote Rotie and will reward cellaring. 93-95 Jeb Dunnuck
12 bottles(s) of Cave Pinheiro 2019 Cornas for $43.99 per bottle (SKU4062) Thats just silly for a Cornas and even sillier for this Cornas as this wine is so damn good. First of all the wine is so, so fine. My goodness is this refined. I wasnt prepared for the refinement.
2 bottles(s) of Domaine les Alexandrins 2018 Crozes Hermitage for $37.99 per bottle (SKU4110) I loved the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage from barrel last year and it showed beautifully from bottle. Its dense purple color is followed by rocking notes of black raspberry fruits, tapenade, ground pepper, and smoked earth. This rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated Crozes-Hermitage has a wonderful texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Well worth seeking out, this terrific 2018 will evolve for 1
1 bottles(s) of Domaine les Alexandrins 2018 St. Joseph for $40.99 per bottle (SKU4111) I also loved the 2018 Saint Joseph, another concentrated, layered, complex wine that does everything right. Loads of blackcurrants, blackberry, chocolate, spice, and barbecue smoke-like notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully seamless Saint Joseph with ripe tannins and outstanding balance. Its going to evolve for 10-15 years given its quality of fruit and overall balance. – 93 Point
1 bottles(s) of Domaine des Breseyme 2018 Cotes du Rhone Brezeme Rouge for $37.99 per bottle (SKU4143) Its like a baby Hermitage. There is a geological connection between the soils of Hermitage and Brezeme. Clay and granite. The Brezeme appellation started with seleccion Massale vines from Hermitage. This is not similar to Côte Rotie or St. Joseph. This is in the polished traditional style. Like Alexandrins/ Bourg/ Pierres Seches.
4 bottles(s) of Remy Nodin 2019 Cornas Les Eygats for $33.99 per bottle (SKU4163) I cant believe how cheap this wine is for the quality. The site, Eygats is great and Domaine Courbis made a 100 point Cornas (Jeb Dunnuck) in 2015 from this site
2 bottles(s) of Remy Nodin 2020 Crozes Hermitage Le Mazel for $24.99 per bottle (SKU4164) Lovely granite and crushed stone complement the deep and vivid dark fruits. Delicate and mineral, with exquisite delicacy this is beyond lip smacking. It will greatly benefit from age but will prove irresistible young.
11 bottles(s) of Jean-Francois Jacouton 2019 St Joseph Chemin De Sainte Epine for $36.99 per bottle (SKU4171) The 2019 Saint Joseph Chemin De Sainte Epine has a similar purity and freshness, with slightly exotic notes of ripe plums, blueberries, sappy spring flowers, and pepper. It too is elegant and seamless on the palate, with wonderful purity and elegance as well as great tannins. It should evolve for a solid 10-15 years in cold cellars. – 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
9 bottles(s) of Christophe Billon 2018 Cote Rotie Les Elotins for $47.99 per bottle (SKU4213) Including 3% Viognier, Billons 2018 Côte Rôtie Les Elotins is the entry level cuvée of the estate and offers a meaty, black-fruited style that carries medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of tannins, and notes of chocolate, crushed rocks, ground herbs, and pepper. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age. – 90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
1 bottles(s) of Compagnie de lHermitage 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge VV de Gervans for $38.99 per bottle (SKU4255) The 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Vieilles Vignes De Gervans showed beautifully, with a bright, lively, yet powerful style offering lots of blue and black fruits, candied violets, pepper, and crushed stone. It has a real sense of minerality, medium to full body, beautiful purity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Its not your standard Crozes-Hermitage from the lower plains and will have two decades or mor
2 bottles(s) of Gerard Courbis 2019 St. Joseph Vieilles Vignes for $49.99 per bottle (SKU4369)
7 bottles(s) of Jacques Lemenicier 2012 Cornas for $21.99 per bottle (SKU4605)
178 bottles(s) of Jacques Lemenicier 2014 Cornas for $21.99 per bottle (SKU4606)

Southwest
1 bottles(s) of Familie Jouffreau Clos de Gamot 1988 Cahors for $169.99 per bottle (SKU3874) Another profound Jouffreau Cahors from an utterly classic vintage.
1 bottles(s) of Familie Jouffreau Clos de Gamot 1989 Cahors for $169.99 per bottle (SKU3875) Another profound Jouffreau Cahors from an utterly classic yet riper vintage.
5 bottles(s) of Domaine Brana 2014 Irouleguy Rouge for $51.99 per bottle (SKU4326) Sometimes you can assess a vintage of Brana by seeing what happened in Bordeaux but sometimes, like in 2014, Bordeaux can be a wash and SW France can slay. In 2014 SW France slayed and 14 Brana is killer but one for the cellar I think the 2014 is an incredible young Brana

Bordeaux
23 bottles(s) of Chateau Bouillerot 2019 Cep DAntan for $24.99 per bottle (SKU3929) Old school, classic Bordeaux. Elite Bistro wine is the style here. The ultimate Tuesday night wine.
27 bottles(s) of Chateau Bouillerot 2018 Essentia for $22.99 per bottle (SKU3930) The middle cuvee here and the same goes. Elte Bistro wine.
4 bottles(s) of Chateau Bouillerot 2018 Fruit dAutomne for $19.99 per bottle (SKU3931) Autumnal fruits is the name of the game here as the name suggestt. Our new elite Bistro Bordeux estate
8 bottles(s) of Chateau Samion 2019 Bordeaux for $42.99 per bottle (SKU4047) This makes me feel like I am drinking super expensive Bordeaux! 2019 really, really tastes like a $100 bottle of Bordeaux due the stunning freshness and fruit quality. Big, rich, ripe, very finesse-driven palate and terrific structure and purity. Sappy sappy pure and rich fruit. Ripe, sweet tannin and almost a zen-like balance. The finish is remarkably long.

Loire
3 bottles(s) of Domaine des Roches Neuves 2019 Saumur Champigny Marginale for $48.99 per bottle (SKU4289) While the 2019 Saumur Champigny La Marginale has underlying power and muscular tannins from its deep clay soils, it retains its light body and lightness of touch. Theres red currants and the merest hint of green (this is Cabernet Franc and you need to embrace it) alongside violets, but ultimately this is a wine about shape and texture, not flavor descriptors. Scented, medium-length finish. 92 VINO
3 bottles(s) of Domaine des Roches Neuves 2018 Saumur Champigny Marginale for $47.99 per bottle (SKU4291) Seamless, balanced and ageworthy. Aged 12 months in 25-hectoliter barrel. Nose full of roses and violets. Silky and cool in the mouth, with fresh plum and black cherry. Finishes full of graphite and crushed stone and a lingering licorice note. Needs a couple years, but this will be exceptional. 94 Points, VINOUS

Champagne
3 bottles(s) of Brice 2019 Bouzy Grand Cru Rouge Coteaux Champenois for $38.99 per bottle (SKU4298) Brice with this wine is making what can only be called Red Grand Cru Champagne. I know it sounds ridiculous but that is what this wine is like. It has all that minerality you find in many of the Brice wines, but also ravishingly deep and powerful tiny berry concentrated dark fruits. The fruit in 2019 is beyond anything any of you are ready for. It is crazy. It makes the 15 look like and taste like

Rose Wines

Italy
32 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
12 bottles(s) of Giuseppe Negro 2020 Monsu Rose Langhe Rosato for $20.99 per bottle (SKU4105) This is one of my favorite roses on earth. It blows away pretty much anything from the South of France. There is only 12 hours of skin contact so this is not over the top. This is a blend of Gallina and Piancavallo fruit.

Sparkling Wines
—————————————————————————-

Champagne
11 bottles(s) of Lamiable NV Graine Detoile Grand Cru for $42.99 per bottle (SKU3622) Super gulpable and compex Grand Cru with awesome tension.
3 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
2 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.
6 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.
2 bottles(s) of Marie Demets NV Cuvee 19m Siecle for $38.99 per bottle (SKU4084) This is a complex bottle of wine and very different from the other Marie Demets wines. Very different. The wine is NOT released for 3-4 years. 40% is fermented in barrels and they consider this their deluxe cuvee.
8 bottles(s) of Marie Demets NV Cuvee Rubis Rose for $34.99 per bottle (SKU4085) The Rose is wonderful as well, being rich and full of deep Pinot fruit with a rich orchard fruit character and loads of super fresh raspberries. Lovely earth tones and a serious almost gout de terroir you really only find in Red Burgundy and the red wines of the Cotes de Auxerre
11 bottles(s) of Perseval-Farge NV Terres de Sables 1er Cru Brut for $47.99 per bottle (SKU4195) It is ultra refined and has the most exotic fruit of the Perseval Farge lineup. After much air and even after 24 hours a wild fruit component starts to express itself. Guava and pineapple that is just mindblowing with all the yeast and minerals. Great contrast. It is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 11% Pinot Meunièr
2 bottles(s) of Brice 2013 Bouzy Grand Cru for $49.99 per bottle (SKU4253)
8 bottles(s) of Caillez-Lemaire NV Eclats Brut for $37.99 per bottle (SKU4328) It is 50% barrel fermented and 50% barrel maturation, so despite its skeletal brut nature quality, it has heft and weight to it. Its complex and so dry that I would only drink it as an aperitif or with fresh oysters. Maybe some caviar. It is insanely delicate, yet penetratingly deep and has so many angles it would make Euclid jealous

Italy
1 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.
15 bottles(s) of Tomaso Gianolo 2016 ALTA LANGA DOCG (80 months) Spumante Metodo Classico for $29.99 per bottle (SKU4044) Gorgeous mousse and very mineral palate with tons of energy and tension. Complex, deep and terrific concentration and sap. Very long. Brilliant bottle. The fruit is explosively citrus with a slight yeastiness and bread-like quality as well.
3 bottles(s) of Sergio Barbaglia NV Curticella Dosaggio Zero 60 Months for $49.99 per bottle (SKU4318)

Savoie
6 bottles(s) of Domaine Montessuit NV Ayze Grande Réserve Brut for $32.99 per bottle (SKU4250)
