  1. Samuel Billaud Chablis 1er Cru Sechets Vieilles Vignes 2017
    WA92-94
    NM92-94
    VM92-94
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock

    92-94 Points! The 2017 Chablis Séchet 1er Cru comes from 70-year old vines that sees no wood contact. It has a classic Chablis nose of flint and smoke though, it takes a little coaxing from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a twist of bitter lemon on the entry, focused and full of tension with a brisk, quite intense citrus finish that feels very persistent. This has great potential. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

  2. Chateau de Chamirey Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roi 2016
    WA92
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! The 2016 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roi is very promising, unfurling in the glass with notes of ripe cherries, plums, crushed cassis, licorice and candied citrus peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, with the mid-palate amplitude that one associates with this site, structured around fine-grained stony tannins and juicy acids. - William Kelley, robertparker.com Learn More
  3. Cheval Blanc Saint Emilion 2018 Pre-Arrival
    DEC98-100
    JD97-100
    JS98-99
    WA97-99
    VM97-100
    $698.98

    97-100 Points! The 2018 Cheval Blanc is dazzling. Creamy, supple and inviting, the 2018 is endowed with phenomenal balance. The tannins and overall structure are imposing, and yet the richness of the fruit and perfect ripeness of the tannin really stand out. In 2018, Cheval is a bit richer than is often the case, but that is not at all a bad thing. I am struck by how much freshness and energy the 2018 has. Hints of lavender, spice and licorice add shades of nuance, but it is the wine's overall sense of harmony that leaves the strongest impression. A precise counterpoint of fruit richness and finesse makes for a truly unforgettable Cheval Blanc. - Antonio Galloni

  4. La Garde Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2017
    JS93-94
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93-94 Points! This is very linear and really energetic with a driven acidity and tight and compact fruit. Full-bodied yet remains so agile and bright. The lemon-zest and salty character is impressive. Only 10% new wood here. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  5. L'Evangile Pomerol 2018 Pre-Arrival
    DEC97
    JD96-98
    JS98-99
    WA97-99
    VM94-97
    $244.98

    98-99 Points! A very plush and exciting L’Evangile with polished, velvety tannins that set this up to be a classic. It’s full-bodied with glorious fruit and a great center palate that has fantastic depth. It’s so caressing and beautiful. So much here. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

    97-99 Points! The 2018 L'Evangile is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The Merlot was harvested September 19 to October 2, and the Cabernet Franc was harvested September 25 to October 1. This is the optimal blend--with more Cabernet Franc coming through this year, since it was amazing. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slips seductively out of the glass with glamorous notes of baked black cherries, warm blueberries and raspberry tart plus wafts of kirsch, red roses, rose hip tea, espresso, licorice and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and delivering opulent black fruit layers, the palate has a firm frame of lovely, ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Beautiful. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
