  1. Andre Clouet Rose No.3 NV 1500ml
    Andre Clouet Rose No.3 NV 1500ml

    100% Bouzy and Ambonnay pinot noir; 2012 base vintage
    Jean-Francois 'Clouet No 3' was inspired by Coco Chanel, the number introduced for the first time this year to denote the style, recognising that the colour is different each year, and with the number 3 representing a light,  elegant aperitif style.  Elegance and freshness are his goals for rose, avoiding what he describes as the 'full, rustic and heavy" styles of the past.

    Clouet's rose epitomises elegance and focus, while flamboyantly celebrating the generous red cherry, strawberry, watermelon and pink pepper fruit of Bouzy.  It encapsulates that wonderful talent of pinot noir to build and rise on the finish, all the while retaining graceful precision as delicate as rose petal perfume.  Structure is fine and elegant, driven both by chalk minerality of the village and a very finely executed tannin presence.  It finishes with great length and poise of exquisite red cherry fruit.  A pristine and enticingly priced rose. Older disgorgements have taken on savoury suggestions of tamarillo, while upholding their primary integrity.  TYSON STELZER

  2. Zind Humbrecht Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann Grand Cru 2018
    Zind Humbrecht Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann Grand Cru 2018

    Smoky stoniness initially fills the nose on this wine. With a little more air, pear fruitiness comes though while a flinty glint of reduction smoulders in the background. The palate comes with the gentlest sweetness and still needs to knit together. Ample fruit, great energy and immense concentration are all evident in one juicy sip. This is a powerhouse of a wine, coiled tightly and streamlined into a toned swoop. It will release its force in due course. (95) WINE ENTHUSIAST

    The Rangen Grand Cru is located at the southern end of the Alsace wine road, on a very steep south facing hillside, directly over the river Thur. The Clos-Saint-Urbain takes his name from a small iconic chapel built in the middle of the vineyard. Saddly the original chapel that was built at the end of the 15th century got destroyed during the French revolution, and again during first world war. The current chapel was rebuilt after along the middle of the Clos. The soil of the Rangen is a unique volcanic sedimentary rock. Ashes and smokes from a nearby volcano sedimented under the sea and got compacted into rocks as the Vosges mountains were formed. The Rangen has the ability to dramatically influence the style of the wine. If the Riesling is an obvious choice in this vineyard, it is arguably the Pinot-Gris that actually transcends and makes one with the vineyard. If the slope, sun exposure, altitude… can explain the richness of the wines of the Rangen, it is the soil that construct their personality and character. The 2018 was harvested at the perfect ripeness, but nature being nature, the yeasts decided to leave a very small amount of sweetness in the wine -indice 2- probably also influenced by a very small amount of noble rot.

    Bright intense yellow with some gold. The nose is bold, powerful, developing intense flinty aromas, smoke, wet humus… The palate is surprisingly tight and elegant. Smaller berries brought a slightly higher concentration in tannins. The wine is caressing the palate, develops a velvety structure. Beautiful harmony and bright finish. He acidity of the Rangen wines is particularly saline (volcanic rock) and this is the major taste on the finish of this wine. Grand vin, for keeping! OLIVIER HUMBRECHT MW

  3. Isole E Olena Cepparello 2017
    Isole E Olena Cepparello 2017
    The 2017 Cepparello is another in a series of stunningly beautiful Cepparellos from Paolo de Marchi. Bright and beautifully focused in the glass, with tremendous depth, the 2017 is positively stellar from the very first taste. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice, menthol and coffee all open up with a bit of air. Here, too, Paolo De Marchi has done a tremendous job in preserving freshness in the wine. Readers who can muster the patience will be rewarded with a spectacular wine. (97) ANTONIO GALLONI

    Ridge Estate Cabernet 2017
    Ridge’s 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a fabulous choice for readers who want a Monte Bello fix now, without having to wait. Supple, radiant and silky, with tremendous balance, the 2017 is just flat-out delicious and utterly irresistible. Dark red cherry/plum fruit, mocha, licorice, sweet tobacco and a kick of American oak build as this sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon shows its allure. The 2017 is an outrageously beautiful wine. Don’t miss it. ANTONIO GALLONI

  5. Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne Les Macherelles 2017 1er
    Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne Les Macherelles 2017 1er
    A cool, pure and pretty combination consists of notes of citrus-inflected apple, pear, spice and a touch of wood influence. The racy and solidly voluminous flavors possess a lovely mid-palate texture that carries over to the lingering finish that also reflects ample citrus character. BURGHOUND

    Good palish yellow. Reticent aromas of citrus fruit and menthol. Less complex, sweet and broad than the Chenevottes but more minerally, with its citrus flavors complicated by flowers and a medicinal menthol note. Quite closed in the early going but finishes firm and persistent. This wine is a 50/50 blend of vines planted in 1952 and 1988. STEPHEN TANZER

  6. Von Buhl Forster Pechstein Riesling Trocken GG 2016
    Von Buhl Forster Pechstein Riesling Trocken GG 2016

    Penetratingly pungent and high-toned aromas of peppermint, boxwood and lemon zest cover over any aromatic influence there might be from a relatively new Austrian cask. The feel here is polished and strikingly waxy. Alkaline and saline notes serve for enhanced invigoration and saliva-inducement on a resonant and rich yet refreshingly bright finish. Last tasted from cask shortly before an August 2017 bottling, this wine will have a lot more to say given a bit of time. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, vinous

    Larcis Ducasse 2018

    12 Bottles remaining at time of offer

    From the clan of Thienpont (Nicolas) the chateau has really started to live up to potential.  We may not have seen a better L-D in terms of power and balance, remembering it faces a riper kind of south on the cote of St.-Emilion -Tom Portet

    James Suckling 97-98
    This is very structured and powerful with bright and electric acidity and fine-grained yet muscular tannins. Full-bodied yet compact and focused. Greatly formed. Flexing. Thoughtful.

    Antonio Galloni   94-97
    The richness of the vintage and the classicism of Larcis come together in an absolutely unforgettable Saint-Émilion. A wine of total sophistication and class, Larcis Ducasse is fabulous in 2018. Freshly cut flowers, bright red fruit, espresso, licorice and wild flowers are all vibrant in the glass. The 2018 marries fruit intensity, energy and structure like few wines in this vintage. The 2018 is deceptive in its mid-weight structure, but it packs a real punch. There is an element of precision in Larcis that is truly remarkable. Even with all of its intensity, Larcis retains its characteristic linear feel and drive. I loved it. Tasted three times.

    Andrew Caillard, MW 95
    Deep colour. Intense musky dark plum liquorice aromas. Dense supple inky textured wine with fine integrated tannins, fresh nutmeg vanilla oak notes and long tannin plume. Really good.

  8. Henri Gouges Nuits Chaignots 2017 1er
    Henri Gouges Nuits Chaignots 2017 1er
    As is usually the case, this possesses the spiciest nose in the range and in 2017 is almost Vosne-like with its notes of plum, violet, pomegranate, sandalwood and Asian-style tea. It is also the most refined wine in the range as the vibrant medium weight flavors exude evident minerality on the chalky, lingering and well-balanced finale. If this can add depth with bottle age, it should merit the upper end of my range. BURGHOUND

  9. Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2019
    Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2019
    One of my favorite whites from the south of France is Daniel Brunier’s Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and his 2019 is another stunning effort. Always a blend of Clairette, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Bourboulenc brought up in foudre, this beauty boasts an exotic nose of honeyed peach, quince, crushed citrus, and salty minerality, all with a floral edge. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with flawless balance and beautifully integrated acidity, enjoy this concentrated white anytime over the coming 15-20 years. JEB DUNNUCK

  10. Elio Altare Langhe La Villa 2016
    Elio Altare Langhe La Villa 2016
    The 2016 La Villa is a blend of 60% Nebbiolo and 40% Barbera, both from Arborina. In this vintage, the weight and texture of Barbera dominate, at least in the early going. Creamy and expansive on the palate, the 2015 La Villa has a lot to offer once it fully comes together. Silky and beautifully perfumed, the 2016 is already quite expressive. It will be interesting to see if time brings a bit more harmony, although the 2016 certainly seems to have a good bit of potential. ANTONIO GALLONI

  11. Krug Grand Cuvee 375ml
    Krug Grand Cuvee 375ml
    Light yellow-gold.  Fresh orchard fruits, lemon and toasty lees on the fragrant nose. Tightly coiled but deep in pear, quince and candied lemon flavors, with smoke and anise notes building with air.  Shows an intriguing blend of richness and vivacity, finishing with strong cut and impressive smoky persistence.  This bottling isn't likely to quell the dismay of Krug fanatics who sense a change of style at the house favoring finesse over power, but there's absolutely nothing wimpy about this Champagne. JOSH REYNOLDS, Stephen Tanzer International

  12. Azelia Barolo San Rocco 2013
    Azelia Barolo San Rocco 2013
    Another highlight in this range, the 2013 Barolo San Rocco is utterly beguiling. The bouquet alone is striking, but it is the wine's total balance that is most appealing today. Tasted next to the Margheria, the San Rocco is deeper, darker and more overtly powerful, with a greater sense of Serralunga tannic clout. Dark cherry, tobacco, menthol, licorice and sweet spices give the San Rocco much of its exotic personality. The San Rocco was aged in French oak barrels, with about 10% new wood. ANTONIO GALLONI

  13. Elio Altare Langhe Larigi 2017
    Elio Altare Langhe Larigi 2017
    Altare's 2016 Larigi is a total stunner. Rich and explosive on the palate, with tremendous fruit richness, the 2016 is positively stellar. Succulent dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and new leather build as this sexy Barbera shows off its super-distinctive personality. As delicious as the Larigi is today, it also needs a number of years to be at its best. Indeed, Larigi boasts one of the most impressive track records in Piedmont. The 2016 will soon take its place as one of the greatest Larigis ever made. It is every bit that special. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Pavie Macquin 2018

    18 bottles available at time of offer.

    A wine that really shows the diversity and differences of wine critics and cast the numbers away. You can double down on this theory for en-primeur, where the wines are still not baked. Located next too the hill of Mondot, with Pavie to the south. Organically made and extremely limited availability -Tom Portet
     
    James Suckling 97-98
    This is a decadent and beautiful young wine with wild aromas and flavors of meat, wet earth and plums. Very complex. Full-bodied yet soft and very velvety. The tannins melt into the wine, as if they aren't there. Extremely long finish. 78 per cent merlot, 20 per cent cabernet franc and two per cent cabernet sauvignon.

    Andrew Caillard, MV 96
    Deep colour. Intense enervating blackberry cedar wood varnish aromas with aniseed notes. Generous vigorous sweet fruited wine with plentiful new oak and fine grainy graphite tannins. Still elemental but balanced. Massive dense graphite wine with great potential. 

    Antonio Galloni 95
    The 2018 Pavie Macquin is voluptuous and exotic to the core. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and chocolate all race out of the glass. Pliant, supple and silky, the 2018 is lights out. This is an especially heady, flamboyant style, so readers should be prepared for a pretty intense Saint-Émilion. That said, the new oak has now integrated quite nicely..
