2015 Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle Musigny les Veroilles 1er Cru

94-96 WA / 92-94 BH

$245.99/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Veroilles consists of five barrels this year, two of them new. It has an elegant and composed bouquet that is perhaps the most harmonious of all the domaine's 2015s-pure red cherry, strawberry and cranberry scents infused with cold stone aromas. The palate is beautifully composed, beautifully delineated and damn well beautiful to drink. There is amazing energy here and outstanding sustain in the mouth. The best Veroilles produced at the domaine and goddammit, perhaps the finest premier cru Chambolle-Musigny that I have ever tasted from barrel. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

  

2016 Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle Musigny les Cras 1er Cru

92-95 BH / 92-94 WA

$269.99/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

Tasting note: A cool, reserved and intensely floral nose is gorgeously spiced, indeed this is the spiciest wine in the range, with its ripe red and blue berry fruit aromas that offer up attractive floral notes. The equally cool and restrained medium weight flavors possess excellent structural ripeness as well as fine size, weight and power on the intense, harmonious and mouth coating finish. This tautly muscular effort is a classic Les Cras that is stylish, classy and should age beautifully and note well that it's going to need it. Brilliant. Sweet Spot - Outstanding. - Allen Meadows, Burghound

 

2016 Hubert Lignier Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru

95-97 WA

$265.00/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2016 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Mazoyeres and includes 25% new oak and one-third whole cluster fruit. It has a sensual bouquet that is as much Charmes as Mazoyeres, well defined and very elegant, not a million miles away from Denis Bachelet in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine thread of acidity, very pure in style with a saline finish that gets the taste buds going. This is a wonderful Charmes Chambertin that should give 20 years of drinking pleasure. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

 

2016 Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny les Amoureuses 1er Cru

98 JS / 93-95 WA / 94 BH

$589.00/bottle (in stock) Buy Now

 

So perfumed and floral such as roses. Enticing. Full-bodied yet so refined and wonderful with dusty-textured tannins at the front of the mouth. Dense yet so polished and beautiful. Flows on the palate. Fantastic to taste now but will be great in three or four years. - James Suckling

 

2015 Lucien Le Moine Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

93-96 BH / 92-95VM

$289.99/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

Tasting note: A notably ripe yet attractively fresh nose is made up of spice, earth, plum liqueur and a hint of smoked meat. The wonderfully sleek, concentrated and muscular flavors possess unusually good refinement in the context of what is typical for the appellation while delivering breathtakingly good persistence on the well-balanced finish. 2015 was a great vintage for Clos de Vougeot and this example will only add to its renown. Bravo! – Don’t Miss! - Allen Meadows, Burghound
