    Ramon Canals

    Penedès (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Caviar, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Pale straw-yellow with fine and slowly rising effervescence. This Cava shows fresh white fruits, lingering citruses, and tropical fruits. White floral aromatics. The nose of this wine is one that we would expect for such a long aged cava. It is very toasty with dry fruit aromas. A background that is intense with some aniseed aromas and total freshness. This sparkling wine Grand Reserva Brut Cava from the Duran vineyards is complex, well-balanced, and fresh. Ripe fruit entwine with creams and fresh toasted notes. Well-integrated effervescence and excellent acidity that lend this cava a lively expression that is very pleasant. The finish is long and sweet and seduces us to drink more.

    Stephane Aviron

    Beaujolais (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "Old vines, at least 40-years-old, are behind this ripely structured wine. It was wood aged to give the extra richness this producer looks for. With concentration and tannins, this cru will age. Drink from 2018. Stéphane Aviron has adopted an almost radical return to tradition in Beaujolais: sustainable viticulture, extremely old vines and classic Burgundian techniques. His cru Beaujolais drink like fine Burgundy."

    Argiano

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "Wild rosemary, thyme and tar flavors shade the black cherry and strawberry notes in this firm red, which is sinewy, with mouthcoating tannins on the dusty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2018 through 2024."

    Giovanni Manzone

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "The 2014 Barolo Castelletto is another very pretty wine from Manzone. Orange peel, rose petal, rosemary, star anise, mint and kirsch give the 2014 a slightly exotic quality that is hugely appealing. The 2014 is already quite expressive and giving. It should drink well for another 15-20 years, maybe more."

    "Gorgeous, plush Brunello flavors without hard tannins.  Good introduction to the beauty of Brunello.  A candidate for wine of the vintage."

  6. New Brunello di Montalcino DOCG by Uccelliera 2014

    $594.00

    Uccelliera

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The 2014 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino is a simply fabulous effort in this vintage. It begins with inviting aromas of dried cherries and wild berries which are laced with leather, dried florals, minerals with hints of eucalyptus, orange rind andspices which all develop beautifully. It goes on to impress with its medium-plus body and gorgeous silky tannins that beautifully caress the palate. Displaying outstanding balance and finesse this goes on to throughly impress all the way through the lingering finish. This is drinking remarkably well even ay this early stage and should go on to evolve nicely with some bottle age. A magical effort from Andrea Cortonesi, who has who certainly excelled in making a wonderful wine in this extremely difficult vintage."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    94 points - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

     

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

    Domaine Jamet

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "Plenty of violets, pepper and deep-set spices are all part of the equation here, and this is a very complex Côte Rôtie that has a wealth of darkly stony notes, coal smoke and dark chocolate. Just superb! The palate's succulent and swathed in plush, fine tannins that envelop black- and red-plum flavors. Plenty of volume, great elegance and a lot of detail. A vintage when experienced makers could still shine, and the sorting in the vineyard was clearly a large part of this. Classy wine with so much on offer. Best from 2020 for a decade or more. Tasted in tank shortly before bottling."

    95-96 points - James Suckling, Oct 2016

     

    "“Finesse, but not without concentration” is how Jean-Paul referred to the 2014s. We tasted a number of component parts from across his blends of 16 different parcels. Rather than bottling single parcels he prefers to blend, and keeps new oak to a minimum (10-15%). The overall impression is a fragrant, floral, peppery style with good aromatic definition and adequate concentration for medium-term ageing. It will be ready relatively early, and despite not being a terribly weighty vintage, its elegance and balance with provide much pleasure."
