2010 Domaine Leroy Bourgogne Aligote (White)
Was $74.99; Now $59.99
“Lalou Bize-Leroy stands virtually alone at the top of Burgundy’s quality hierarchy. Because she is a perfectionist, and because she has had the courage to produce wines from low yields and bottle them naturally, without fining or filtration, she has been scorned by many Burgundy negociants, and even by the proprietors of other top domaines. Not only are they jealous, they are frightened of Bize-Leroy because they fear increasing pressure for lower yields and bio-dynamic farming. Anyone who loves great Burgundy, must realize that her wines embarrass much of what is produced in Burgundy”- Robert Parker
2011 Domaine Delarche Corton- Charlemagne Grand Cru (White)
Was $99.99; Now $84.99
“The family’s few older vines in this noble grand cru sit at the top of the slope, and deliver fruit that is well-balanced and complex, with a stony, high-altitude edge. This is a gorgeous wine, with a reserved, brooding nose of smoke and citrus; silky and weighty on the palate, with more citrus and peach. Easily decades ahead of it.”- Importer’s Notes
2011 Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet Puligny- Montrachet “Les Referts” 1er Cru (White)
Was $115.99; Now $94.99
91+ Points International Wine Cellar: “Pale, bright yellow. Musky peach and a metallic quality on the reticent nose. Generous, ripe and silky, with a concentrated peach flavor nicely framed by excellent acidity. Less complex and showy today than the Tesson but with lovely underlying floral character. In a classically dry style but has the stuffing to support its firm spine of acidity. Finishes with considerable finesse and excellent length.”
2011 Domaine Dubreuil-Fontaine Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru (White)
Was $149.99; Now $119.99
91 Points Burghound: “A discreet application of wood sets off the attractively layered aromas of mineral reduction, Granny Smith apples, white flower and subtle spice hints. There is good volume and a fine sense of underlying tension to the intense and intensely mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess a cool, long and well-proportioned finish.”
2011 Domaine Dubreuil-Fontaine Beaune “Montrevenots” 1er Cru Was $56.99; Now $48.99
90 Points Outstanding Burghound: “A pretty, fresh and agreeably complex nose features a mix of various dark berry scents that display top notes of spice and floral hints. There is good volume to the moderately austere and serious middle weight flavors that possess a cool and firm mouth feel before terminating in a compact, rustic and lingering finish. This is distinctly old school and while it won’t wow you with charm, there is plenty of character though note that patience will be required.”
2011 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges Vieilles Vignes Villages
Was $59.99; Now $51.99
“A discreet touch of wood sets off fresh and bright red berry fruit and soft earth aromas. There is a seductive texture to the mouth coating, delicious and vibrant medium-bodied flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a balanced and solidly persistent finish. This moderately austere effort could be enjoyed young.” Burghound 88 Points
2011 Domaine Bruno Clair Savigny-lès-Beaune “La Dominode” 1er Cru
Was $84.99; Now $73.99
89-91 Points Burghound: “Noticeable oak is present on the notably ripe and impressively complex nose that features aromas of plum, violets, pungent earth and a hint of the sauvage. The medium-bodied flavors exude a fine sap that partially buffers the firm tannins on the muscular and overtly powerful flavors that possess excellent balance and persistence. This is not particularly refined but it is imposing, particularly for a Savigny.”
2010 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Roncières” 1er Cru
Was $89.99; Now $74.99
90-93 Points Outstanding Burghound: “This is a bit more aromatically elegant though no more complex or spicy with impressive richness to the silky-textured and admirably concentrated middle weight flavors that evidence a subtle minerality on the moderately robust finish that is not quite as persistence though this may be only temporary as there is plenty of gas present. I like the sense of focused power on the balanced and linear finish that is somewhat firmer still.”
2009 Domaine Hubert de Montille Volnay “Brouillards” 1er Cru
Was $89.99; Now $74.99
89-91 Points Outstanding Burghound: “This is aromatically much more reticent at present with more obvious floral and spice influence along with the somber and quite earthy red berry fruit notes. There is good richness and intensity to the medium-bodied and fleshy flavors that possess an emphatic finishing austerity. I like the Cistercian character this displays though it will not be toeveryone’s taste. Note that I suspect the current reserved quality will pass with a few years of bottle age.”
2011 Domaine Denis Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
Was $97.99, Now $84.99
89 Points Outstanding Burghound: “Here too there is a touch of wood spice to the compositionally similar if slightly riper and more complex nose. There is excellent underlying tension to the delicious and solidly complex flavors that possess very ripe if firm tannins that impart a slightly chewy texture to the serious but not particularly rustic finish. Note there is a trace of backend dryness that my score assumes is due to the recent bottling as the underlying phenolics appear to be quite ripe.”
2009 Domaine Michel Lafarge Beaune “Les Aigrots” 1er Cru
Was $98.99; Now $88.99
91 Points Outstanding Burghound: “A more complex and broader range of fruit aromas include distinctly ripe red currant, plum, blue berry, violets and the classic Aigrots minerality lead to fleshy but well detailed flavors that possess good richness as there is ample extract to buffer the otherwise firm tannins on the vibrant and delicious finish.”
2011 Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier Nuits St. Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Marechale
Was $99.99; Now $84.99
90 Points Burghound and 89-92 Points IWC: “Medium-deep red. Complex aromas of blueberry, currant and underbrush, plus a whiff of rare steak. Densely packed and sappy, with musky flavors of black raspberry and chocolate. Finishes with building tannins and smoke and mineral nuances. This was recently racked and is close to the final blend.” International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 13
2011 Domaine du Comte Liger Belair Vosne Romanee “La Colombière”
Was $99.99; Now $82.99
89 Points Outstanding Burghound: “A more restrained and cooler nose of violets, Vosne spice and extract of red currant and plum introduces silky-textured medium weight flavors that possess fine length on the relatively refined finish. This understated effort is really quite pretty and should drink well young.”
2011 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “Les Vaucrains” 1er Cru
Was $114.99; Now $91.99
92-94 Points International Wine Cellar: “(cropped at just 24 hectoliters per hectare, according to Gregory Gouges, who noted that the 2011 version of this wine includes a small percentage of 15-year-old vines): Bright dark red. Sexy, vivacious, very pure aromas of cassis, minerals, bitter chocolate and licorice. Suave and silky on the palate, with uncommon delicacy for Vaucrains, not to mention terrific energy. Sappy, fine-grained and sweet, with a very long, fruit-driven finish that titillates the taste buds. This lovely aucrains avoids the chocolatey super ripeness I often find in the warmest vintages.”
2011 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “Les St.-Georges” 1er Cru
Was $139.99; Now $114.99
92-94 Points International Wine Cellar: “Good bright red. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Vaucrains, offering scents of redcurrant, tobacco, flowers and spicy oak. Quite reticent in the mouth, showing subtle intensity and superb energy to the savory flavors of redcurrant, spices and crushed stone. Impressively juicy and fine-grained but very closed today. Finishes with superb palate-staining spiciness. But the Vaucrains is sexier at this stage.”
2010 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée “Les Chaumes” 1er Cru 750ml Was: $159.99, Now: $129.99
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 91-93 Points: The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes is deep, powerful and sensual. It boasts fabulous depth and an understated personality that is immensely appealing. Today the Chaumes is cool and introspective, but it should blossom nicely with further time in bottle. At present it is quite reticent, even if its potential is striking. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - Feb 2012
2010 Domaine Comte Armand Pommard “Clos des Epeneaux” 1er Cru
Was $169.99; Now $134.99
94 Points Outstanding Burghound: “An exceptionally fresh combination of high-toned, pure and quite elegant red cherry and raspberry aromas is liberally laced with warm earth and iron nuances. Similarly, there is really lovely purity to the gorgeously well-detailed, intense and muscular medium weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract and a caressing mouth feel before terminating in a mouth coating and explosively long finish. This is relentlessly persistent with outstanding depth on the palate staining finish. A knockout vintage for this wine but it’s not one to buy if you intend on drinking it anytime soon.”
2009 Domaine Ponsot Morey St.-Denis - Cuvée des Alouettes 1er Cru
Was $169.99; Now $134.99
91-94 Points Sweetspot Outstanding Burghound: “A very pretty nose of discreet spice notes, red currants and damp earth nuances that continue onto the rich, powerful and impressively concentrated medium-bodied flavors blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the notably firm, mineral-driven and wonderfully complex finish that seems to go on and on. This is terrific and one of the best vintages that I have ever seen for this wine.”
2010 Domaine Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin “Les Evocelles”
Was $179.99; Now $143.99
90-92 Points Outstanding Burghound: “The altitude of the vineyard shows here as there is exemplary freshness to the cassis, red currant and mineral-inflected nose. There is also a bit more acid spine helping to shape the rich, concentrated and very serious middle weight flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract on the silky, delicious and energetic finish that evidences some youthful Gevrey-style austerity.”
2010 Domaine Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin “Coeur de Roy”
Was $179.99; Now $143.99
90 Points Outstanding Burghound: “A ripe and attractively perfumed nose features notes of black cherry, cassis and plum that are given added lift from the copious floral nuances. There is simply incredible concentration to the round and suave medium weight plus flavors that possess a velvety mouth feel on the powerful, precise and superbly focused and persistent finish. This explosive effort delivers knockout quality for its level.”
2009 David Duband Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru Was $179.99; Now $149.99
91-94 Points Burghound: “A contained, indeed almost shy nose of animale-infused cool red berry fruit aromas liberally laced with floral and earth notes is followed by rich, supple and quite generous middle weight plus flavors that possess a relatively sophisticated mouth feel as the tannins are dense but fine before culminating in a wonderfully long and mouth coating finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This doesn’t have the sheer depth of the rest of these grands crus though it’s possible that it will develop more in time.”
2011 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard et Fils Nuits St. Georges “Aux Thorey” 1er Cru
Was $199.99; Now $159.99
89-91 Points Burghound: “A relatively perfumed nose is airy and laudably pure with only a background touch of wood on the mix of red currant, red pinot and wild cherry aromas. The textured, intense and quite smooth middle weight flavors possess good phenolic maturity before culminating in an ever-so-mildly rustic finish that delivers excellent persistence. A Nuits of balance and harmony.
2010 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard et Fils Nuits St. Georges “Aux Thorey” 1er Cru
Was $199.99; Now $159.99
90-93 Points Outstanding Burghound: “An earthy and admirably pure nose speaks primarily of red currant and cherry liqueur nuances that lead to rich, concentrated and expansive medium- bodied flavors that possess a velvety mid-palate yet the supporting tannins are clearly Nuits St. Georges in character. The focused and linear finale possesses excellent length and very impressive complexity. Fine aging potential here.”
2011 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes Mares Grand Cru
Was $469.99; Now $369.99
92 Points Burghound: “A strikingly well- layered nose displays notes of dark berry fruit, flowers, spice and earth scents. There is fine richness to the round and again quite voluminous middle weight plus flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in muscular finish that displays excellent persistence. This is relatively refined in the context of what is typically a robust appellation thanks to the very fine grain of the supporting structure.”
2010 Domaine Ponsot Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes
Was $499.99; Now $399.99
95-97 Points Don’t Miss Burghound: “In stark contrast to the expressiveness of the Clos St. Denis, this is almost mute and even aggressive swirling liberates only the briefest glimpses of wild red berries and earth notes. There is superb size and weight to the imposing and overtly muscular flavors that also enjoy an incredible amount of dry extract that confers a supple and seductively textured mouth feel to the highly concentrated mid-palate. The presently buried tannins are intense and markedly firm though not hard on the explosively long finish that seems to go on and on. This should be something very special if given sufficient time to reach its apogee.”
2010 Domaine Ponsot Chambertin- Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
Was $499.99; Now $399.99
93-95 Points Don’t Miss Burghound: “An overtly spicy and very fresh nose evidences markedly ripe aromas of primarily red berry fruit with stone, earth and sauvage hints. There is a really lovely inner mouth perfumed to the equally spicy and pure large-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density and simply superb focus on the hugely long finish.”
2011 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru
Was $599.99; Now $469.99
94 Points Burghound: “A remarkably attractively cool and restrained nose of various red berries, spice and a beautiful array of floral elements complements well the rich and equally cool mineral-tinged big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension on the clean and pure finish that delivers strikingly good length. This intensely mineral-driven effort is also clean and firm but with slightly better phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements which should allow this beauty to age successfully for many years to come.”
