Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole 2016
$168.50
Faiveley Issarts Label
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: (destemmed): Good dark red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, spices, crushed stone and red licorice. Intensely flavored and penetrating, boasting terrific energy
and lift to its flavors of red berries, minerals and flowers. Very concentrated and dense but conveys a weightless impression.
The palate-saturating finish offers spectacular rising perfume. A wine from very stony soil: I'm sure I would have picked it blind as coming from Chambolle-Musigny. 93-95 Points
Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées 2016
$217.00

Faiveley Fuees label
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: 
(more than 50% of the potential crop was lost to frost; vinified in a new 3.5-hectoliter barrel with 50% whole clusters; one-third of these vines were planted in 2010): Bright, saturated medium red. Knockout perfume of cranberry, pomegranate, raspberry and white pepper. Vividly highpitched and fine-grained in the mouth, with its penetrating, floral red fruit flavors accented by pungent crushed stone minerality. Delivers outstanding intensity without weight, not to mention superb inner-mouth tension and saline complexity. This fabulously perfumed wine finishes with terrific rising length. This wine may not have the volume or power of the Combe d'Orveau but I suspect it will dance on its sibling's grave. 93-95 Points
Corton Clos Des Cortons Monopole Grand Cru 2016
$365.00
Faiveley Corton Label
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: 
Bright ruby. Fruit-driven aromas of crushed black cherry and dark raspberry convey outstanding pungent lift. Incredibly concentrated, sappy and primary, conveying outstanding juicy purity and compelling thickness to its dark fruit and violet flavors. At once hugely powerful and utterly 
seamless, this wine finishes with great spicy length and lift. A real essence of Burgundy--and likely to evolve gracefully for 25 years or more. 95-98 Points
Latricieres Chambertin Grand Cru 2016
$409.00
Faiveley Latricieres Label Burghound: Here too the wood treatment is subtle yet just prominent enough to warrant pointing out on the cool, pure and notably more sauvage nose of both red and dark wild berry and earth scents. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension suffusing the much more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are not quite as rich but notably more precise on the chiseled and wonderfully refined finish. Textbook. 
(Drink starting 2031). 93-95 Points
Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2016
$459.00
Faiveley Mazis Label
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: 
Dark red with ruby highlights. Complex, inviting aromas of black raspberry, peony, toast, smoke and game. Compellingly rich, creamy wine with a captivating mixture  of dark berries, flowers and toasty oak. Maintains its thickness and body straight through to the very ripe, long, suavely tannic finish. A beauty. 93-95 Points
Chambertin Clos De Bèze Grand Cru 2016
$597.00
Faiveley Beze Label
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: 
Bright, dark red-ruby. Knockout sappy nose combines black raspberry, crushed rock and white pepper. Boasts remarkable intensity and clarity--not to mention class--to its
flavors of raspberry, spices and pungent minerals. Wonderfully sappy and dense but almost magically light on its feet. This sharply delineated wine finishes with ineffable rising perfume and outstanding length. This wine manages to combine the best traits of Faiveley's other Gevrey grand crus--not to mention the finest qualities of the 2016 vintage in an utterly weightless package. 94-97 Points

Lignier Georges Ormes Label
 
Domaine Georges Lignier Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes MAGNUM 2016
Last 8
Save $81.50
  
Oops, recently we made another discovery in our old warehouse - 12 MAGNUMS of the Domaine Georges Lignier Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes 2016. Looks like these arrived from France late last year and we have never got around to offering them. 

Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes is Domaine Georges Lignier's flagship wine. The vineyard lies immediately below Clos de la Roche and it is often described as a mini version of the Grand Cru. In winemaker (and nephew of Georges Lignier) Benoit Stehly's hands Clos des Ormes displays a multi-faceted palate combining delicacy and power. Each year we see the domaine's unique style develop further proving Burgundy does not have to be big, rich and extracted to be wonderful.
Darren Harris:  Nose of plums, spice, vanilla. Not particularly dark as is typical of Benoit's wines but with many layers and nuances dancing across the palate. It combines the juice of 2016 with rose, red fruits, cool stoney minerality and a lovely, fine mouthfeel. Power and grace. Long and precise with a medium firm finish. 

The World of Fine Wine: 
Savoury, perfumed, grippy, with floral fruit, incense and spice. Compelling. 93 Points
Normally $306.50
Special $225.00
