  1. New Tirant Priorat by Rotllan Torra 2001

    $594.00

    Rotllan Torra

    Priorat (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "A prodigious effort, the 2001 Tirant is a 9,000-bottle cuvee made from 30% Grenache (90-100 years old), 25% Carignan (90-100 years old), 25% young vine Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Fermented in large oak foudres and aged 12 months in new French oak, it will be bottled with neither fining nor filtration. Inky/purple-colored to the rim, it boasts a spectacular bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, and the region’s classic crushed stone minerality. This full-throttle yet remarkably elegant 2001 possesses tremendous intensity and texture as well as layers of flavor, but comes across as not over the top, overripe, or overly heavy. The 60-second finish reveals more noticeable tannin than the other cuvees. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15. The 2001 Tirant is indeed a special wine."

    Chateau Gruaud Larose

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "This tastes of great Cabernet Sauvignon, with its black currant, cedar and herbs and fresh, juicy acidity. It is as fresh as it is rich, but it has a structure of dense tannins that balances the wine. This is one of the best wines from Gruaud-Larose for several years."

    Chateau Pichon Baron

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition."

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    "An admittedly hard act to follow, but the 1962 Scarpa Barolo Riserva Speciale (a wine I hadn’t tried in the last six or seven years and was curious to see how it was holding up) was up to the task, and then some. This bottle was in perfect shape (decent provenance is always a problem with older Italian wines), still showcasing bright red cherry, rose petal and delicate tar aromas and flavors of noteworthy intensity, supported by vibrant acidity; unfortunately, thirty minutes after opening the bottle, less memorable woodsy and underbrush notes took over, while the fruit disappeared. Nevertheless I was very impressed by the wine, especially considering that 1962 is remembered as a vintage of mainly elegant Barolos but of dubious ageworthiness. Clearly, they were confident of the wine’s merits at Scarpa, as they chose to make a Riserva Speciale, something I wouldn’t have thought to be a particularly good idea in the 1962 vintage. Clearly, this wine proves me wrong."

    Chateau Latour

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Bizarre as it may sound, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is also the finest I have ever tasted from this selection, which comes from specific vineyards, not really so much a second wine as just another wine from estate holdings. A blend of 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27.5% Merlot that represents 40% of the production, this astonishing wine hit 14.3% natural alcohol. Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids (and that wine is still drinking great 30 years after the vintage). Sensational notes of graphite, crushed rocks, black fruits, camphor and damp forest notes are present in this expansive, savory, full-throttle wine, which is better than many vintages of the great Latour itself from the past. (That may be a heretical statement, but it’s the truth as I see it.) This wine needs a good 5-6 years of cellaring and should age for three decades at minimum, given the fact that the 1982 is in terrific form and wasn’t this concentrated or prodigious. "

    Chateau Leoville Las Cases

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil. Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017."

    Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    3 x 750 ml

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


    "There is enough reduction to hide the fruit but not so much as to completely mask the natural spiciness of a fine RSV. The delineated medium weight flavors possess a silky mid-palate though there is plenty of punch to the concentrated, intense, balanced and highly complex finish that delivers outstanding length where a hint of bitter cherry appears. This classy effort is really lovely and exceptionally stylish."

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    3 x 750 ml

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


    "The inky-colored 2013 Côte Rôtie Belle Helene is another beautiful wine that shines more for its purity and elegance than overt power and richness. Black fruits, wood smoke, caramelized meats and hints of beef blood all flow from this full-bodied, mineral-laced, focused and chiseled Côte Rôtie that needs 5-7 years of cellaring and will keep for another 15+ years."
