Josh Raynolds–Vinous 91 points
“Pale gold. Intense citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by notes of honeysuckle, tarragon and iodine. Chewy tangerine and pear skin flavors become silkier and spicier with aeration.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Magical, Undiscovered Volnay

of Pierrick Bouley

Generational change is the best chance to buy capital “G” Great Burgundy at reasonable prices.  Case in point? Today’s offering of Volnay from Pierrick Boulay, who has taken over the family estate (known as Reyane & Pascal Bouley).  He’s young and clearly very talented—these are some seriously special wines at prices that are equivalent to most middling producers of Volnay.  We’re sure the pricing will change as he gets more notice, but for now these represent a fantastic buying opportunity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Best Opus Ever?

At a Killer Subscriber-Only Special Price

We’ll let you read the reviews for ’15 Opus and make up your own minds, but it’s a wine that’s clearly in the running for the best Opus One of all time. The 2015 growing season was easy and perfect in Napa and that shows in the bottle—you can tell the team was working with the absolute peak raw material to put the blend together.

Big Rhone Reds for Grilling

While many people like to go all-American for their fourth of July celebrations, we’re after the best wines and biggest values to pair with wines coming off of the grill. To that end, there’s no better choice than the Rhone valley, whose rich, robust reds seem born to pair with hearty, smoky foods.  Whether you’re looking at $15 Cotes du Rhones or $75 Chateauneuf du Pape, the wines deliver a top of value relative to other regions in their price categories, as well—always a good thing.

de Villaine on the July Sale

That Domaine A&P de Villaine is forever associated with the Domaine de la Romanée Conti is a blessing and a curse.  On one hand, Aubert de Villaine’s involvement serves as a guarantee of quality, but on the other, it’s convenient to compare these wines to Burgundy that costs hundreds of dollars more, resulting in disappointment.
