There's a fine line between a full cellar and and a 'too full' cellar.

Cup Runneth Over: A French Cellar Offer

Share

For those of us who love wine, and love it to the point of obsession, we sometimes come to the shocking conclusion that in our ardour we have purchased perhaps a few more bottles than we'll ever be able to enjoy. It's somewhat startling, really, just how quickly one's collection expands to exceed even the largest cellar capacity. This phenomenon is far more common than you'd suspect. Today's offer is based on a bit of cellar thinning by two longtime customers and friends. We'd like to thank them for the opportunity to help find new homes for these beautiful wines. Happy hunting! -John McIlwain

Chevillon, Robert 2011 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Roncieres

Red fruits dominate, yet this is powerful and earthy, very middle of Nuits. Good tannin and acidity, and persistence of flavor and length. JBT

Esmonin, Sylvie 2007 Côte de Nuits-Villages

The vines are in Brochon from the lieu-dits La Croix Violette and Les Vignois, bordering Fixin. "...the masculine and serious flavors are rich, full and concentrated with good complexity and ripe finishing tannins" Not elegant, perhaps, says the Burghound, but full of character. We think it's a great deal at $27.99!

Esmonin, Sylvie 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin

"... the fruit is expressive, even exuberant with an appealing freshness to the ripe, earthy and slightly sauvage dark berry aromas where the sense of vibrant transfers to the intense, detailed and lightly mineral suffused medium-bodied flavors that possess good finishing punch and length."

Montus 2000 Madiran Prestige

2000 CuvĂ©e Prestige. Dark fruit, freshly turned soil, maduro cigar, pretty blackberry and plum notes. Still structured, but certainly open for business. Good freshness, with flavors of game, cassis, black plum, and iron. The oak is beginning to integrate and this is a fine pairing with duck magret, sublime with  cassoulet.  Decant now or hold 5-10+ years. John McIlwain
