Albert Bichot Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 
Normally $735.00
Special $624.75
3 bottles available

Bichot Chambertin Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: 
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambertin Grand Cru from Domaine du Clos Frantin (Albert Bichot) has a dense, fruit-driven bouquet that does not possess the detail of Rousseau's Chambertin 2012. Wild strawberry mingles with cranberry and dried orange peel notes that gain intensity in the glass, but not quite the precision. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, citrus fresh in the mouth with touches of blood orange. Perhaps the true quality of this wine is unveiled because it is far superior than the recalcitrant nose. There is a touch of bitterness on the finish, but that merely lends this Chambertin tension. Extraordinarily long and vital, this was one of the huge surprises of the blind tasting. 97 Points
Domaine Philippe Cheron Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2015
Normally $385.00
Special $327.25
6 bottles available
Cheron Vougeot Label
Darren Harris: Cheron's vines lie mid slope towards Echezeaux in the climat Baudes Hautes. The vines are very old having been planted when the land was purchased in 1934. The shallow clay-marl soils at the top and richness and minerality to the wine while the sandier soils at the bottom add a lift to the aromatics of the wine. The wine has great depth of colour. Intense nose with ripe dark fruits, a hint of new oak, a little earth. On the palate is where the wine shines. Not surprisingly it is the most complex of the tasting; there is real fruit intensity. Medium-full bodied with a gorgeous texture, almost a creaminess from the old vines. The tannins there on the finish are long and fine. This is a very stylish CV with impeccable balance.
Domaine Bertagna Chambertin Grand Cru 2014
Normally $455.00
Special $386.75
2 bottles available
Bertagna Chambertin Label
Darren Harris: Deep red. Explosive aromatics. Minerals, spicy red fruits - currants, raspberry combined with cherry tartness. Longjing tea and earthy notes combine with smokey spice and a wild note to seduce the senses. Quality new oak is all but buried behind the opulent and powerful mid palate: very textured with a great sweetness of fruit that (at least initially) could be 2015. The fine tannins kick in towards the end to add line and drive. You could be forgiven for drinking this now but like all Chambertin it will surely close down and demand time in the cellar.
Domaine Morey-Coffinet Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015
Normally $367.95
Special $312.76
11 bottles available
Morey-Coffinet 2015 Corton Label Burghound: (from a purchase of must in En Charlemagne). An ultra-fresh nose combines notes of green fruit, white flowers, spice hints and a whiff of mineral reduction. The big, rich and full-bodied flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration while delivering plenty of minerality on the robust, muscular and explosively long finish. This built-to-age effort is going to require at least a few years before it will begin to reveal its considerable potential. 2025+. 93 Points

Domaine du Clos Frantin Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015 
Normally $495.00
Special $420.50
3 bottles available

Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) Clos St-Denis Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru 2015  
Normally $865.00
Special $735.25
3 bottles available
Chezeaux Denis Label
Burghound: 
A kaleidoscopically spicy and subtly floral nose is even more discreet if patently classier with its lovely aromas of red and dark cherry liqueur, lilac, tea and softly anise-tinged aromas. The sweet, pure and understated flavors are underpinned by firm and dense but quite fine tannins that support the mouth coating, indeed palate staining finish that is impeccably well-balanced and sneaky long. There is ample sap to buffer the structure and unlike many of these grands crus, this should actually be approachable young. In sum, this is a magnificent CSD. (Drink starting 2033). 93-96 Points

Seguin-Manuel Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015
Normally $430.50
Special $365.95
8 bottles available
Seguin-Manuel Echezeaux label
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru was still showing some reduction on the nose when I tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, ripe black and red fruit here with a chalky texture towards the second half. Nicely balanced, it is a little more masculine than expected, but with plenty of freshness, so drink this over the next 12 -15 years.
 91-93 Points
Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut Corton Hautes Mourottes Grand Cru 2010
Normally $171.50
Special $145.75
11 bottles available

Ravaut Murottes
Darren Harris: Only 500 metres from Bressandes but a totally different expression of Grand Cru Corton. The Hautes Mourottes is more elegant, less obvious, but is a wine that creeps up on you. The higher, cooler site is no doubt the reason for less richness with the mineral structure covered by elegant red-black fruit with hints of violet and a little minty stem character. The material is fine but compared to the Bressandes this wine is more closed and begging for time in the cellar to display its full character. One would say it is the more traditionally-styled of the two Grand Crus from Ravaut.

Domaine Jean Chartron Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2014
Normally $379.00
Special $322.15
9 bottles available

Chartron Corton Label
Wine Spectator:
Butterscotch, vanilla and peach aromas and flavors hold court in this mouthfilling, toasty white. Creamy and balanced, with a long, spicy aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2030. 94 Points
Domaine Georges Lignier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 20124
Normally $470.00
Special $399.50
7 bottles available

Lignier Bonnes-Mares Label Tim Atkin MW
This is darker, denser and more tannic than most of the Lignier Pinots, with a sense of something being held back for the future and a hint of reduction. But the wine opens up in the mouth, offering powerful flavours of black plums, liquorice and sweet Asian spices. The oak, as ever, is judiciously applied. 2020-30.

Bouley Bourgogne Label
Pascal Bouley Bourgogne 2014
"This is a fine effort and would make a good choice for a house red." Burghound
6 Cases Left
Burghound: (from vines located in Volnay). There is excellent density of fruit to the plum, earth and violet-scented nose. The attractively vibrant middle weight flavors possess a lush mouth feel as well as better than average complexity for a wine of this level, all wrapped in a sappy and balanced finale. This is a fine effort and would make a good choice for a house red. A Sweet Spot Wine.
