This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.

“The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a great first impression thanks to the purity and intensity of the fruit. Those two things—purity and intensity—can sometimes be uncomfortable bedfellows, but this expression from Caprili unites them in happy marriage. The bouquet opens to bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. There is a lot of beautiful energy on hand. The wine is smooth and silky, giving it both near and long-term appeal.”
99 Points (#2 Wine of Italy, 2020) – James Suckling
A very special Italian Collectors item. Elements of cherries and cigar box seem to dominate, but then notes of almonds, more cherry, and then blackberry and leather seem to dance in and out. But when you consider truly great wines, ones that really deserve at least a 10 year slumber in a dark cellar – the price point can be down right frightening. Not so today. I think you could start drinking this soon and enjoy it for the next two decades easy.

This is arid, high altitude Cabernet (think Howell Mtn.) from vineyards at over 3,000 ft in elevations. It’s bright, bright Cabernet with zip and zest – due to its perfect acidity – which makes this an over-the-top food friendly wine. However, don’t let how easy it is to drink full you, there are so many interesting notes of leather, spice, tobacco, …. And as Mr. Tanzer points out it “This serious Cabernet finishes with excellent length.

Drawn from some the finest parcels on the storied hill of Montosoli, James Suckling says of the tiny Cerbaia estate’s newest release: “Elena Pellegrini’s 2015 Brunello is fragrant, redolent of purple flowers, sage and wild berries. The wine is dark and powerfully concentrated yet finishes fresh and kind stony, making it both fantastic at the table now and a great candidate for long aging”

“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 2005 Yquem starts out incredibly welcoming with seductive aromas. The mouthfeel offers perfect balance with fresh acidity and elegance complimenting the wine’s power and giving it tremendous grace. It’s crazy good right now, but I think I will defer to Lisa Perotti-Brown, who said in her 97-pt review of this classic wine just last year, “This decadent flavor bomb still needs a good five to seven years in bottle before it is set to go off, but oh what a spectacle it will give then!” From what it’s already showing, this can be one special bottle for Sauternes collectors.

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.

This one is a beauty. A great mix of baked apple, mango and papaya with honeysuckle and vanilla. For a top-notch First Growth Sauternes with 95 points – perfectly cellared and stored for 15 years – price tag seems almost nonsensical. $33/375ml or $29.70/bottle when added to case orders. Who’s ready to drink their desert this Thanksgiving?

“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

This is an exceptional premier cru offering from one of the most famous, most collected Burgundy producers. Clos des Porrets is a monopole, purchased by the Gouges family in 1933. Grégory claims it produces wine with the best potential of long aging within his range of wines. It has old vines rooted in pink limestone and rich clay, producing dynamite Nuits Saint Georges. Aromatically complex, with violets, black cherries and a touch of Burgundian earth. The fruit is pure, layers of dark cherries and plum that unfold in the glass with air. The tension is what you’d expect from one of the greats of Burgundy, wound-up and high-toned, the finish is mineral laded and goes on for minutes. This is truly extraordinary red Burgundy, an epic wine of power with finesse and just amazing potential.
