  1. The Story of Sixto: Wine Spectator's 94pt Top Premium Chard and Its 94pt Buddies!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Great story here. So, anyway, a pretty HUGE winery by the name of Chateau Ste. Michelle decides to get into the sparkling wine business back in the 70's.  At that time they were only producing a Blanc de Noirs.  But, you know, if you're going to get into the sparkling wine business and you wanna be...
  2. Miss the Incredible 2010 Tertre Daugay? Here's the 2001 at the Same Price!

  3. Too Good: Epic 95pt Zin from the Zin-Master Himself, Jeff Cohn!

    To all Wine Exchangers, We have followed Jeff Cohn’s career for a long time.  The guy has a pretty serious track record though it is hard to keep track of it all since he has probably made a greater array of outstanding wines in his illustrious career than almost anyone.  Heck, we counted more than sixty different wines getting 90+ reviews...
  4. Lafage's Sold-Out 92pt Old-Vine Carignan Is Back...at an Even Better Price!

    To all Wine Exchangers, “When it comes to quality-to-price ratios, no one does it better than proprietor Jean Marc Lafage. Located just outside of Perpignan, this estate has a wealth of old vines and vineyards to pull from, and the addition of a massive new winery is only going to give them even more control. While it’s easy to write...
  5. K Vintners Roundup: 97-Point Syrah Trio and a 96-Point Cab Masterpiece!

    To all Wine Exchangers, OK, here you go, the final round-up from K Vintners…for the time being. Hey, Charles Smith makes a LOT of compelling wines, but he doesn’t make a LOT of any one of them.  We’ve been fortunate enough to get some decent allocations of some of the wines we’ve offered over the previous several months but many...
  6. 2010 Rioja Double Play: 95 & 96pt Stunners from Remelluri and Contino!

    To all Wine Exchangers, We must have been one of the first merchants in America to buy, sell and drink the wines of Remelluri.  At that time, we didn’t know just how significant a property it was, we just remember that 1989 being a helluva wine from an entity that we hadn’t seen before, and another feather in the cap...
  7. The 'Coche-Dury of the Jura' Is Back: New Mind-Blowing Releases from Ganevat!

    To all Wine Exchangers, It’s that time of year again.  This is one of the ‘boats’ that we always wait for with bated breath.  If there was a Christmas in September, this would be it. Ganevat Day. Yes, Jean-Francois Ganevat (‘Fan-fan’ to his friends), the undisputed (to us) Cult King of the Jura, has been a name whispered in uber-dork...
  8. Triple 90+ St. Emilion Steal from the Team at L'Eglise Clinet Only $16.98 + 10% Off Cases!

    To all Wine Exchangers, What can one say about the great, yet very humble Denis Durantou?  The guy makes one of the greatest wines of Bordeaux, Pomerol's Chateau l’Eglise Clinet, a wine that, over the past 15 years, has scored a few 99 and 100-point scores from Robert Parker and James Suckling among others. Short story? The guy knows a thing or two about wine...
  9. Southern Tuscany Roars! Le Pupille's 95+ Point Poggio Valente, at a Sensational Price!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Y'know, we don't talk a whole lot about Morellino di Sansano, but there's a reason. Most of them are just 'ok'.  This smaller appellation in the southern part of Tuscany is 'ground zero' for the Maremma, a breadbasket area of sorts where many producers in Chianti Classico and Montalcino have invested heavily in order to prodcue reasonably-priced 'Super-Tuscan'-style...
  10. The Greatest Les Forts de Latour Ever (97pts) on Pre-Arrival Now!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Today marks the ex-chateau re-release of the 2010 Les Forts de Latour, which many critics call the best Les Forts ever produced! In 2010, Les Forts de Latour with its 97 point score was only behind its big brother Latour, Lafite, Mouton and Pontet Canet for top honors in Pauillac, beating out the rest of the...
