A very special Italian Collectors item. 2015 was an enormous gift for any winery with a Tuscan address. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate rated the vintage a shocking 97 points. Ian D’Agata – arguably the foremost expert on Italian wine has gushed, calling the 2015s “the best in recent memory.” But maybe Mr. James Suckling said it most succinctly, exclaiming “The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss.”
It’s good to be in good standing with one of the most beloved wine brands in America! Our relationship with the Wagner family has given us seconds while many others still way for firsts. These won’t last long! This is an opulent, powerful dark-fruited Cabernet with tightly woven tannins, that is just raring and ready to go. Textbook Caymus in a great year in Napa. This might be their best rendition in a decade. Wine Spectator called this one a “rich and showy style”.

“This great Barsac is just beginning to open up and not only has incredibly fine mango, papaya and star-fruit character but also something mineral. Great concentration and textural complexity right from the tip of your tongue to the end of the extremely long, very pure finish. You can enjoy this now, but I recommend cellaring it as long as you can, because this has at least 50 years of ageing potential!” – James Suckling

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Petrus comes galloping out of the glass with bold, expressive notions of Black Forest cake, blueberry preserves and Christmas pudding with nuances of molten chocolate, Chinese five spice, candied violets, licorice and kirsch plus wafts of roses and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and fantastically concentrated, the palate has compelling freshness and a solid base of wonderfully ripe, velvety tannins, finishing very long and opulent. The aromatics at this youthful stage are atypical for Petrus and quite stunning—this 2017 is a bombshell! Furthermore, it is a unique style for this estate and one avid collectors should seek out!” –The Wine Advocate
Winemaker, Joschi Goldschimdt, has produced a killer Chianti in ’19, filled with aromas and flavors of sweet berries, rose petals, cedar, and tobacco, wrapped tightly with a firm structure and fine finish. Amazing tension guarantees this to be a no-brainer at any dinner table, delicious with just about anything.
This is an absolutely phenomenal white Burgundy from Denis, Martial and Gaetane. The Sous la Velle comes from the family vineyards located in the village of Meursault, but just outside the limits of the AOC. That’s good for us considering what’s in the bottle. A sophisticated White Burg made from 35 year old vines on marl and limestone, the perfect stage for a well-chiseled Chardonnay with a round mouthfeel, a creamy middle and plenty of depth. This should be three times the price.
This champagne is so good, it’s often a staple on the wine lists of Michelin two and three star restaurants. It offers elegant aromatics, pristine fruit and the crisp, mineral finish that screams for food. We loved it so much, we asked Jacques Diebolt to bottle a special cuveé for the restaurant– and he happily agreed!
Jean-Claude Janin’s Domaine des Terres de Chatenay estate has 7 hectares of naturally farmed, old Chardonnay vines rooted in some of the most mineral soil of Burgundy. The resulting wines are electric renditions of white Burgundy, with high-toned, floral aromatics, a deep concentration of green apple and pear fruit and a laser-like finish that is stony, a touch saline and a mile long.
92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
The newly released 2019 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a knockout, even better than the fantastic 2018 we offered last year. This year it comes armed with a 92 points– fitting for a terrific white Burgundy with a killer nose of citrus rind, quince and thyme that opens up to a dense, packed mid-palate of crunchy fruit. The finish is classic Chablis, chalky and minerally and incredibly smooth. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.

“The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable.” – Antonio Galloni
From two New Jersey natives comes something special from Napa Valley. First the Faustini’s bought grapes from the historic Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard for their first test batch. Next they brought in Opus One & Clos du Val alum Kian Tavakoli to head up the winemaking. Throw in an outrageously good 2016 vintage in Napa and what you have is the recipe for a knockout wine that is starting to come into its own and will be great for the next 10-20 years!
