Sample some of the finest rare wines in the world while gaining a deeper understanding of the vintage as a whole and the individual terroirs:
October 23, 2019 – Wines
Louis Roederer Brut, Nature, Philippe Starck Label 2009: The only cuvee that exists between Louis Roederer and Philippe Starck. This rare champagne is made with zero sugar addition.
Winemaker Notes: “You will not fail to be charmed by its juicy aromas of sun-drenched fruit that gently caress the palate. An elegant bitterness combined with zesty, spicy and delicate oaky notes linger on the finish.”
Didier Dagueneau, Pouilly-Fumé, Pur Sang 2013: Number one white wine from Loire Valley from Didier Dagueneau Pur Sang, most difficult wine to get from Loire Valley.
Critic Review: “This is no doubt a special wine and drinks so well at this stage. Proper wine making here and among the best Dagueneaus we have tried.”
Meursault, Les Narvaux, Dominique Lafon 2014: One of the best makers from Burgundy Dominique Lafon.
Vivino Review: “Among top 10% of all wines in the world (2014 Vintage)”
Domaine Georges Vernay, Condrieu, Les Chaillees de l’Enfer 2014: From the smallest French appellation, made with viognier grape exclusive to Condrieu.
Tasting Notes: “Condrieu’s whites strike an unusual balance between delicate perfume and substantial body. They are produced only in tiny quantities, and only in seven parishes.”
Marqués de Murrieta, Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva 2007: Recognized as one of Europe’s most iconic winery
Tasting Notes: “Always a fantastic wine, truly one of the great Gran Reservas, it reaches a whole new level in this 2007 vintage.”
Barolo Fratelli Alessandria 1970: Not only the King of Piedmont but also in 1970, one of the best vintages.
Winemaker Notes: “Produces wines only from their own grapes and continues to manage the winery as a family run operation. They proudly carry on their ancestors’ tradition and passion for wine making. Gian Battista’s belief is that ‘A great wine comes from a great vineyard’, and he personally takes care of the vineyards.”
Château Troplong Mondot, Saint-Émilion 2001: From one of the best vintages, 2001. Classic, top Saint-Émilion Bordeaux.
Critic Review: “This estate continues to merit substantial praise. Remarkably approachable despite its impressive concentration and well-concealed tannin, this is a beauty.”
Ornus dell’Ornellaia 2015: We are the only one in the United States to have this wine.
Critic Review: “Ornellaia is the estate’s “Grand Vin”, with exceptional balance, power, elegance, and great aging potential. A wine that expresses sweetness and richness while maintaining a fresh elegance. The 2015 Ornellaia is impeccable, a dream wine.”
November 13, 2019 – RARE Burgundy Focus:
Enjoy extremely rare wines, focusing on BURGUNDY wines with such fables names as:
2008 Bollinger, La Grande Année, Brut, Champagne: In 2008, the remarkable maturity of the grapes combined with a phenomenal acidity have produced a wine of infinite depth and allowed an exceptional vintage to be created.
Winemaker Notes: La Grande Année 2008 is from one of the most anticipated vintages since the start of the 21st century. The exceptional 2008 harvest resulted in a wine of infinite depth, concentration and freshness. It expresses its distinctiveness in this deep, complex and harmonious wine.
2017 Pascal Prunier-Bonheur, Auxey-Duresses, Premier Cru, Les Crais, Côte de Beaune: Critics have scored this as the best available Auxey-Duresses Premier Cru wine.
Tasting Notes: “… clear and bright, the wine has a beautiful golden colour. A nose of fresh apple fruit, with biscuit notes and a touch of vanilla. Attractive and vivid, its fruit remains round and persistent all the way through the finish.”
2011 Domaine Alain Chavy, Puligny-Montrachet, Premier Cru, Champs Gains, Côte de Beaune: Among top 1% of all wines in the world.
Tasting Notes: “The altitude in Champ Gain has an important effect on the mesoclimate here, and the vineyard has more cooling influences than those further down the hill. An easterly exposure means that there is plenty of sunlight during the day, but cooler nights bring about a slower, longer ripening period. As such, acidity is retained in the grapes while they develop flavor, which makes for a taut, racy style of wine.”
2012 Domaine Alain Chavy, Chassagne-Montrachet, Premier Cru, La Maltroie, Côte de Beaune: La Maltroie is a Premier Cru vineyard of the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation in Burgundy. This gently sloping, east-facing vineyard produces white wines from Chardonnay. It is located next to the buildings of Chassagne-Montrachet itself, at the south-western corner of the village.
2014 Domaine Marquis d’Angerville, Volnay Premier Cru, Les Fremiets, Côte de Beaune: There is an effortless nature to this Volnay.
Critic Review: “This is distinctly more restrained with its layered assortment of plum, dark berries, earth and pretty spice elements. There is a really lovely mouth feel to the beautifully well-delineated middle weight flavors that possess plenty of minerality on the dusty and focused and slightly fleshier finale. Lovely.”
2001 Domaine Georges Noellat, Nuits-St-Georges, Premier Cru, “Les Boudots”, Côte de Nuits: Aux Boudots is one of the northernmost Premier Cru climats in the Nuit-Saint-Georges appellation in Burgundy. The vineyard lies on the midslope of the Cote d’Or, just below the much steeper slopes of the Les Damodes Premier Cru climate.
2013 Domaine Jean Grivot, Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, Côte de Nuits: Clos de Vougeot grand cru is a perfect balance of power, aroma and flavor.
Winemaker Notes: “Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol and low tannins make it very food-friendly.”
1993 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Marc de Bourgogne, Eau-de-Vie: Unbelievable from the powerhouse that is DRC.
Tasting Notes: “This domaine needs no introduction, it is quite simply the most famous and highly regarded in the world.”
