    Tesseron

    Cognac (France), France (France)

    1 x 700 ml


    "The Tesseron family, who made their fortune in Cognac (but are probably best known by wine lovers as the proprietor of Pontet Canet and Lafon Rochet) released tiny quantities of single vintage Cognacs. Although French law does not permit a vintage date to be used, this is all from 1929, and is very limited in availability. I'm not an expert on Cognac, but anything this smooth, silky, potent, and aromatic, is truly great stuff. It is about as ethereal Cognac as anyone could ever hope to drink."

    Moët & Chandon

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    "This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Bâtard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006. Drink now."

    97 points - James Suckling, Jan 2018

    "There's a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satinlike mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. Drink now through 2029."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "There is enough wood to warrant mentioning but not enough to overshadow the wonderfully spicy aromas of plum, black cherry and cassis. I very much like the texture of the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that are at once powerful yet refined, all wrapped in a very firm, balanced and long finish."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Lard, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets was not touched by frost this vintage according to winemaker Thomas Bouley. It has a very focused, energetic bouquet that unfurls with alacrity in the glass, offering more black fruit than red and subtle earthy/loamy tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, bright and tensile with just a little attenuation on the finish that I am sure will not be there once in bottle. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle and you will have a quintessential Caillerets."

    Ham, Lard, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Fremiers was cropped at just 9 hectoliters per hectare, or two barrels, this vintage. It has a gentle bouquet that works up through the gears with aeration, developing lovely mineral-rich red cherry and strawberry fruit with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite poised and focused, not a powerful or fruit-driven Pommard but brimming over with tension and poise. Excellent."

    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."

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that stretch out slowly as the wine opens up. Displays excellent definition on a very long, lively finish that's given shape by chewy, building tannins. (JR) "

    "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Reserve is brilliant stuff. I was able to taste this from two separate bottles and it never failed to impress. Coming from all the estate terroirs, and including some seriously top juice, its deep purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, spiced meats, and incense, with an undeniable mineral/dried earth character developing with time in the glass. With full-bodied richness, ripe, yet present tannin, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 10-15 years. 93+"

     93 points - Jeb Dunnuck, Jan 2018

     

    "The 2015 Cote Rotie Reserve is rich, velvety-textured and long. Raspberries and herbal notes are joined by hints of cured meat in this medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for up to 15 years. (JC)"

    Egly-Ouriet

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Caviar, Foie gras


    From the very first cuvee, Egly-Ouriet is distinguished for its ability to preserve exacting precision and outstanding chalk mineral focus in the midst of magnificent generosity. This is a vinous wine of calm authority, carrying the full grandeur and complexity of carefully tended, old-vine pinot noir on some of Champagne's most revered Grand Crus, It juxtaposes freshness and depth, a marvel of red cherries, plums, dried fruits, and mixed-spice of rippling intensity, showcasing four and a half years on lees, yet at every moment impeccably focused with scintillating acidity and miner-infused poise. A paradox of luxurious generosity and crystalline purity.

  9. New Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chatelots by Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut 2014

    $804.00

    Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    The vines here average 45 years of age. The wine has a deep color and a lovely floral tinged perfume showing tinges of cherry. Showing lots of charm with lots of cherry and berry fruit, it is beautifully balanced with a nice underlying crispness and a long finish.

    Domaine Rémi Niero

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2017 Condrieu Chery offers slightly more stone fruits, white flowers, and crushed citrus, with plenty of spice and obvious minerality coming through with time in the glass. It's vibrant, fresh and elegant on the palate, with perfect balance. It's another high-quality wine from this estate."

    95 points - Jeb Dunnuck, Jan 2019

     
    "Niero's 2017 Condrieu Chéry comes from vines around 70 years old. It's floral and ripe, with apricot and pineapple flavors in a full-bodied but balanced format. Rich and plush on the palate, it showcases the opulent texture and decadent fruit of Viognier, yet it remains fresh and spicy on the long, harmonious finish."
