Sorry, the Following have Already Sold

Pepiere 2009 Muscadet Sevre et Maine Ch.Thebaud Clos Morines

This is a brilliant Muscadet from a great hillside parcel of old vines belonging to Remy Branger's family. The wine spent 30 months on the lees and carries the new Cru Communal label of Chateau-Thébaud. Here we have the richness of the 2009 vintage but with lovely balance and acidity. The granite of Chateau-Thebaud is more porous and fractured than that of Clisson, allowing the roots easier access to water, giving a more balanced wine in a year of hydric stress. The wine has elegant white fruit, citrus and stone aromas with less fat and more freshness than the Clisson. At 12% alcohol, the palate is lively and very mineral with hints of citrus, pear and spice. This is delicious now but will age beautifully for 20 years and more....

Clos Roche Blanche 2010 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc No. 5

The famous Number Five has just arrived! Made from a selection of the better grapes from their remaining parcel of Sauvignon Blanc, fermented and aged in a three year-old round vat (made by Marc Grenier). This will drink best at three to five-plus years of age and is the same price as the regular cuvee.

De Moor, Alice et Olivier 2010 Chablis Bel Air et Clardy

From 15 year-old vines on stony limestone in Courgis (see photo) A great Chablis — the De Moors are now in a category by themselves as their vinification and vineyard work gives their wines a dimension of minerality and expression that is rare in Chablis. A vintage with good ripeness and great acidity gives this wine complex fruit and terrific length. The thin soil at Bel Air et Clardy accentuates the calcaire flavors. Less aromatic than the 2009, the 2010 has amazing density — a core of stony fruit that will take some years to open. A brilliant wine, 3 bottle max, please.

Roally (Gautier Thévenet) 2010 Viré-Clessé

Under the original owner, Henri Goyard, this was one of the finest of all Macon wines (and one of the greatest values in White Burgundy) and the tradition has continued under the talented young Gautier Thevenet of Domaine Bongran. The 2010 has just arrived — we look forward to trying it — it's a good vintage in the Macon and this wine should be delicious young and age-worthy also.

Texier 2010 Brezeme Pergaud Vieille Roussette

"Roussette" can mean Roussanne in the Northern Rhône, Altesse if you're in Bugey or even Marsanne, if you're in St. Peray. In Brézème, it's Roussanne, and Eric has made a separate cuvée from the oldest vines of Monsieur Pouchoulin, in a parcel of clay and limestone with large stones (galets roulés), bottled in January 2012 after 24 months in old barriques. It's a beautiful wine with subtle aromas of citrus peel, exotic fruit and summer hay; the palate has a slight buttery aspect but remains pure, crystalline and mineral with terrific length and good acidity. This drinks beautifully now and will be a great accompaniment for any serious seafood dish, but the length and acidity indicate great aging potential also. Highly recommended.

Hauvette 2011 Les Baux de Provence Petra Rose

This is a gorgeous wine and one of the world's best rosés, regardless of price. Most rosé from Provence these days is sadly made with "selected" yeasts and many are chemically lightened to appear the proper pale color. Dominique Hauvette farms organically and ferments with wild yeasts giving a full-flavored rosé that's a joy to drink. Complex citrus, red fruits and floral aromas with flavors of peach skin, red currant and spice on the palate, this wine will accompany grilled meats, tuna, bouillabaisse and is delicious by itself. Don't delay as quantities of this unique wine are quite limited.

Coquelet 2012 Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes

The young Damien Coquelet, under the guidance of this step-father Georges Descombes, is making some of the prettiest wines in the Beaujolais. Organic farming, wild yeasts and minimal sulfur. This wine is from old vines formerly part of the Domaine Savoye-Descombes. Very pretty deep cherry and strawberry fruit, fairly forward and with good length. This should drink beautifully over the next 3 or 4 years.

Maréchal, Catherine et Claude 2009 Savigny-les-Beaune Vieilles Vignes

Claude Marechal makes supple, pure and delicious red burgundies. In 2009, his Savigny Vieilles Vignes has the ripeness and weight of the 2009 vintage but with an elegance and complexity of aromas that make it truly outstanding. While this will really start singing in 5 or 6 years, it will certainly drink well young in the full bloom of it's youthful fruit. Highly recommended.
