2018 Clos de la Roilette, Fleurie, Cru Beaujolais $21.89
If I were to form a list of wines that I buy for my own cellar virtually every vintage, this wine would be near the top of the list.  Every fall I eagerly wait to go chanterelle mushroom hunting so that I can come home and enjoy one of my all-time favorite meals - roast chicken with chanterelles, buttered carrots and Clos de la Roilette.  If you've never experienced the charm and intense satisfaction that great cru Beaujolais can deliver, you owe it to yourself to indulge in the glory that is Clos de la Roilette Fleurie.  Fleurie is the source of the most elegant Gamay on earth and Clos de la Roilette is the shining example of Fleurie.  Aromas of earth, baking spices, raspberries and violets lead to the floral palate that reprises the notes of raspberry fruit, spices, minerals, and soil accents.  Delicious now; this wine will only improve over the next  three to five years and age gracefully for another five to seven years or more as it takes on a Burgundian aura. “Alain Coudert’s Clos de la Roilette is a longtime favorite Fleurie producer whose wines should not be overshadowed by newer, more faddish names.” -Eric Asimov, The New York Times “The 2018 Fleurie from the Clos de la Roilette is showing very well, revealing an inviting bouquet of ripe cherries and cassis mingled with spices, violets and peonies. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, enveloping and layered, with fine-grained structuring tannins, ripe acids and a fleshy core of fruit.” - 94 Wine Advocate A classic Clos de la Roilette!

2006 Lopez de Heredia, Rioja Reserva, Viña Tondonia $37.89
Lopez de Heredia's Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva is one of Spain's greatest wines.  In fact, if I were to only buy one red wine from Spain, it would be Viña Tondonia.  With complexity and longevity that would embarrass most first growth Bordeaux and at about 1/10 the price, this is truly an amazing wine and equally amazing value.  Lopez de Heredia is perhaps the most traditional winery in the world with little changing in the way they make wine over the last 130+ years.  The 2006 Viña Tondonia Reserva is the great young Viña Tondonia Reserva. The nose offers enticing aromas of dried cherries, cigar box, leather and faint vanilla bean.  The perfectly balanced and supremely elegant palate is well structured with good acidity and refined tannins that frame the complex flavors of dusty minerals, plums, dried herbs, orange peel and hazelnuts.  This wine has amazing depth.  Buy a case and watch it develop and gain in complexity over the next 30 years. “Vivid red. Highly perfumed scents of ripe red currant, cherry liqueur, pipe tobacco, leather and rose oil, along with a hint of coconut in the background. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering deep-pitched red fruit preserve, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a hint of mocha. The silky, sweet, impressively long finish features excellent clarity and lingering spice and smoke nuances.” - 93 Vinous & 95 Wine Advocate

2013 Castell’in Villa, Chianti Classico RISERVA, Tuscany $55.89
This wine is ridiculously good. A wine for the true Tuscan cognoscenti. While already an exciting wine to drink now, this wine will improve for at least a decade and hum along effortlessly for another 20+ years. “The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is dark, powerful and super-expressive. Black cherry, plum, smoke, sage, licorice, spice, leather and tobacco add shades of character to a wine that shows the more virile side of Sangiovese. The 2013 Riserva is a wine of tremendous intrigue, the sort of wine that opens up over hours, constantly revealing new dimensions of personality. For that reason, it is one of the most compelling and important wines in all of Tuscany. The 2013 is stellar. Don't miss it. Drink through 2038” - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Antonio is so right!

2016 Pierrick Bouley, Volnay 1er Cru, Santenots, Red Burgundy $69.89
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in…Due to both scarcity and crazy pricing, I buy less premier cru Red Burgundy than ever despite loving it as much as ever. I love pure, classic old-school Volnay - the kind that is both both elegant and powerful, offers finesse and great structure, ultra-pure fruit and an earthy minerality. There are still a few producers making Volnay (and other Red Burgundies) this way, but they are getting harder and harder to find, and when you do, the prices are in the stratosphere due to supply and demand. So, it takes a combination of a virtual unknown producer and direct importing to find a deal like the one I present to you here. 2016 is an excellent vintage and this is the real deal, selling at least for now, at an unheard of low price. “Pierrick is clearly fashioning elegant Volnays in a similar style to Michel Lafarge and Jean-Pierre Charlot at Domaine Joseph Voillot.” - Neal Martin, Vinous I’ve already stocked up on this wine and there are only a few cases left. Firs come, first served.

2018 Domaine Courbis, Saint Pérey Blanc, Northern Rhone $26.89
This wine knocked me out!  For those of you who think the Northern Rhone is only good for Syrah, think again.  This blend of Marsanne and Roussanne offers the weight and texture of Grand Cru White Burgundy, the finesse of fine Sancerre and a unique terroir expression that is all Northern Rhone.  Scents of Meyer lemon and jasmine segue to a rich mineral-driven palate with notes of peach and pear fruit heightened by a hint of ginger and well integrated acidity. Delicious on its own, this wine is also infinitely versatile at the table.  Stock up.

2017 Dom. Sangouard-Guyot , Pouilly-Fuisse, Authentique $21.89
Domaine Sangouard-Guyot is one of the best estates of southern Burgundy's Pouilly-Fuisse appellation.  The Authentique is made from a small vineyard called "La Roche" situated up the rock of Vergisson.  Vergisson's terroir brings minerality, balance and power.  2016 was a fantastic vintage throughout Burgundy and the vintage's qualities are fully on display here.  Scents of wet stones, Asian pear and baking spices rise from the glass and ready the taster for the luxurious full-bodied plate with rich Chardonnay fruit and a steak of minerals that runs throughout this shimmering white Burgundy.  Enjoy now or cellar through 2024.
