  1. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Les Haut Lieux 2016
    DEC95
    JD99
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    99 Points! A true 'wow' wine, the deep, concentrated 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hauts-Lieux (there's 20% Mourvèdre) offers awesome notes of blackcurrants, smoked meats, graphite, crushed rocks, and licorice. Extraordinarily concentrated, perfectly balanced, structured, and long, it's another sensational wine from this estate. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age and will cruise for 15-20 after that. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  2. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Réservé 2016
    DEC96
    JD100
    VM96+
    $289.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    100 Points! A modern-day legend in the making is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve from Jean-Paul Daumen, one of the greatest young wines I’ve ever tasted. This Grenache-dominated effort was brought up all in foudre and tastes like the essence of this incredible terroir located on the northern edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Deep purple-colored, with an intoxicating bouquet of black raspberries, crushed herbs, black licorice, spring flowers, and spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, multi-dimensional texture, a huge mid-palate, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. Not far off the style of the Les Trois Sources, yet with another level of concentration, it has a certain accessibility yet won’t be at its best for another 4-5 years, but it will keep for another two decades or more. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  3. Mas Conscience Cinsault IGP St. Guilhem Le Desert Ciel Cieux 2018
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    My proselytizing on behalf of Cinsault when I last visited here (and tasted the Vidals on Sylvain Fadat's Les Servieres) was so convincing - at least, to hear Laurent Vidal tell it - that when a short while later a parcel of 50 year old Cinsault very near to his oldest Carignan came up for sale, he saw it as something of a sign; took the bait; and made these grapes the soloist in a new cuvee, 2010 Cieux. - Robert Parker, 2011 Learn More
  4. L'Orviel IGP Pays des Cévennes Petit Verdot 2018
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    What a completely smashable version of this grape! It has all the punch, color and power you'd expect from PV but the wine has surprisingly glossy, refined tannins at such a young age... Learn More
  5. Pothiers Côtes Roannaise Gamay Clos du Puy 2017
    $21.98
    Availability:In Stock
    From basically the center of France, this old vines cuvee of Gamay Saint-Romain (slightly different than the Gamay in Beaujolais), was planted 80 years ago and is now farmed with organic and biodynamic methods on a terroir of clay and granite soils. A 1.7-hectare walled vineyard, situated at an altitude of 515 meters, facing east. Ploughing, natural grass cover crops, debudding, leaf thinning as well as harvesting by hand are all practiced at this estate, located at the foot of the Massif Central. Vinification: 75% de-stemmed, maceration for 18 days, some punching down of the cap, and maturation in 1-to-5-year-old, 500-litre barrels for 11 months. This is burly yet gorgeously textured Gamay with terrific purity! A must-try for Beaujolais nerds.... Learn More
  6. Moric Blaufrankisch Burgenland 2017
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer's notes: The Moric estate Blaufrankisch Burgenland, encapsulates the Moric style of finesse and varietal typicity. The idea behind this wine is to express not just the variety but also the origin of 8-50 year old vines grown on limestone, primary rock and loam in the villages of Neckenmarkt and Lutzmannsburg. Harvested at a yield of 25 hectoliters per hectare and fermented on the skins for about 20 days partly in open vats and steel tank. Elevage happens in 600-4500 liter casks for about a year. Only indigenous yeasts are used primary and secondary fermentation, no filtration and no fining techniques are employed. The wine is therefore vegan. Only tiny amounts of sulfites are added. The Blaufrankisch Burgenland shows a beautiful translucent coleur, with a fine tannin structure and exceptional balance. The wine will improve with bottle age for at least five years but will show beautifully for many years beyond. Learn More
  7. Rosi Schuster Sankt Laurent Burgenland 2017
    $17.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer's notes: In the hands of Hannes Schuster, Sankt Laurent becomes a focused expression of the soils in and around St Margarethen. The wine draws you in with earthy, fresh and mineral-rich notes of cherry and red berries and exploded on the palate with silky tannins, delicate spice and a lovely long finish. Organically farmed.

  8. Wittmann Estate Riesling Trocken 2018
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Here's perhaps the friendliest, tastiest verison of this wine we can remember having from the great Wittmann! Importer's notes: The Wittmann Estate Riesling Trocken is harvested by hand from estate-owned vineyards around the village of Westhofen. It is fermented with native yeasts and matured in large, neutral oak casks. The wine shows a deep, stony aroma, with an elegant structure and bright citrus juice that leads to a lingering, piquant finish. Learn More
  9. Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Sainte Claire 2018
    JS90
    $21.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Lemon and lime aromas here with crushed stones and chalky notes, too. The palate has a very taut feel with succulent grapefruit and orange flavors. Drink or hold. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  10. La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Arana 2012
    JS95
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! Brambleberries, licorice, dried blueberries, cedar, tobacco, smoke, vanilla, dried citrus and even a hint of grapefruit. The lazer-sharp acidity evinces a real sense of purity, and the tannins are really edgy and structured. Full-bodied but very elegant and stylish. The finish goes on and on, thanks to the shimmering acidity. Beautiful now, but better in 2024. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  11. La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva 904 2010
    JS98
    WA96+
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  12. Dr. Hermann Riesling Kabinett Urziger Würzgarten Mosel 2017
    WA94
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The 2017 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett is from old vines on the upper part of the cru, where the plants root in volcanic sandstone soils and benefit from a slower ripening. It offers generously aromatic tropical fruit that reminds me a bit of the Erdener Prälat in its warm and concentrated fruit flavor. Very elegant, lush and piquant, with fascinating vibrancy and lingering salinity, this is a gorgeous and complex Kabinett with 8% alcohol and 50.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. Lush and gorgeous! - Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com Learn More
  13. Tenuta Greppo Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2001
    WS93
    WE96
    VM94
    $399.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Biondi-Santi's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just as terrific in bottle as it was when I tasted it from cask last year. A dark, translucent red, it reveals superb freshness in its aromatics, with notes of small red fruits, spices, flowers, mint and anise that you could get lost in. It is perhaps less rewarding on the palate today, but its class is amply evident in the purity of its fruit and silkiness of its tannins. This is a wine built for tertiary development that will occur over the following years and decades. Readers who appreciate classically built, age-worthy wines and have the time to wait will find much to admire. In the meantime, this Brunello is all about potential, and there is plenty of that here. It is a great effort. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  14. Tenuta Greppo Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino 2006
    WS94
    JS95
    WA94
    VM94
    $219.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! One of the best Biondi-Santi's in years. This is really silky, with plum and chocolate and hints of cedar. Some citrus as well. Full body, with gorgeous fruit and a persistent finish. Give this another three to four years to open. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  15. Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi) Brunello di Montalcino 2005
    WE92
    VM94+
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points! The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Annata opens with a fabulous, expressive bouquet of freshly cut roses, spices and raspberries, all of which carry through to the palate, where the wine reveals impeccable class and elegance, with just enough fruit to balance its angular, lean structure. Still, the 2005 is surprisingly round and harmonious for a young vintage of Biondi Santi, in fact, I had a hard time putting the glass down! Though medium in body, the wine offers gorgeous persistence and a long, exceptionally pure finish. I expect the 2005 Brunello to shut down in bottle, but readers who have an opportunity to taste the wine should not hesitate. Biondi-Santi did not produce a Riserva in 2005; instead the best of the fruit that is normally destined for the Riserva plus a selection of old vines near the heart of the estate were used for the 2005 Brunello. This is one of the unqualified successes of the vintage. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
