  1. 2015 Bordeaux: The Remarkable Double 91pt Grands Marechaux, Still Only $14.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Chateau Les Grands Marechaux.  Over the course of 18 years (we sold the 1998) between our e-mail offerings and the Stock Report, this chateau has been written up more than any other Bordeaux estate.  With over 10,000 estates in Bordeaux we recently asked ourselves, why?  What we figured out was the reason is simple… this estate is the epitome of consistency...
  2. The 'Classic' 2016 Chateauneufs: The Opening Salvo In Stock Now!

    To all Wine Exchangers, “The 2016 vintage was truly extraordinary for the Southern Rhône and is a vintage that readers should buy with abandon.” – Jeb Dunnuck For those of you in a hurry, the message above gets right to the point.  But that isn’t our quote.  It is from Jeb Dunnuck, former author of the Rhone Report, former Rhone specialist for...
  3. Beaujolais' Best Ever: Foillard's Stunning 95 & 96pt Morgons!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Folks, Foillard is, as famous former Sportscenter anchor Dan Patrick used to say, en fuego. On. Fire.  In what may be the most happening, exciting region of France right now, Jean and Agnes Foillard, doing what they’ve always done since taking the reins of the estate back in 1980, may be making its most compelling wines...
  4. Killer Leeuwin Cabs: 97pt Art Series + 92pt Prelude Too Low to Show!!

    To all Wine Exchangers, This was crazy. What happens when wines have too much good press?  I think we had this happen a couple years ago with a Monsanto Riserva Chianti Classico that we had sold where, literally, the pundits can simply write the article themselves since the wines are so good almost no critic can say ‘no’! But hey...
  5. Lisini's Amazing 2013 Brunello: 96pts & one of the Top Wines of the Vintage!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Roots run deep in Montalcino for the Lisini family. They know they’ve been a fixture in Montalcino since the 16th century, but most assuredly the Lisini-Clementi family were Montalcinese even before then. Over the centuries the family has seen it all, wars, famine, plague, the industrial revolution and yet, here they are, making some of the...
  6. Burklin Blowout Part I: Only $9.98 for this 92pt $22 Stunner!

    To all Wine Exchangers, “…the quality of (Burklin-Wolf’s) generic estate Riesling…is almost unbelievably high and reflects the clarity and animation that have become estate hallmarks.” – David Schildknecht, Vinous Media It seems like there are more parameters to the ‘art of the deal’ than there used to be.  The ‘small world’ of the wine business perhaps dictates a little more...
  7. Miss the Malartic? Here's Ausone's Next-Door Neighbor at Less than 1/13th The Price!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Did you miss the Malartic? Gone in a blink and understandably so; that wine is a serious deal for a 2015 at the price. So, how might we feel about another seriously screaming 2015 deal but this time with a major link to one of the most famous Chateaux on the Right Bank? Fanstastic, yes we thought you'd...
  8. Rhone Roundup: A Trio of 98 & 97pt Wines of the Vintage & More!

    To all Wine Exchangers, “No doubt, 2015 in the Northern Rhône has been trumpeted as the latest "vintage of the century." And if one confines the search for analogs to the 21st century, that may very well be true.” – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate #234“2015 is a truly sensational vintage that should not be missed by any Rhône lover out there. This vintage certainly...
  9. 99pt Just-Released Rioja Legend from Muga Only $69.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, One of the most highly-anticipated Spanish releases of the past year has arrived. We’ve been champing at the bit ourselves to taste the 2010 Gran Reserva Prado Enea from the beloved Bodegas Muga.  This iconic bottling helped pioneer the ‘classical’ Rioja wine movement in America and, since its introductory vintage to the states (the 1985? 1981...
  10. Killer Cotes du Rhone Discoveries from La Roubine!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The southern Rhone is home to a number of small estates that do great work in relative obscurity.  We have made it our mission to look into as many as we can, and that process has turned up a few hidden gems.  While we can tell stories about a number of domaines that we have been...
