Fourrier BottlesDomaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2009 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 89+ points “The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is delicate and a touch ethereal. Crushed flowers and red berries are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this feminine, delicate wine. The Chambolle is open and totally expressive, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024.”
Burghound 88-91 points “An ultra elegant, airy and cool red berry fruit nose that is very Chambolle in character leads to pure, detailed and mineral-inflected flavors that possess plenty of verve on the racy and delicious finish.… Read the rest

Delamotte – Extended Tirage Masterpieces

Delamotte – Extended Tirage Masterpieces

8-20-2020

Delamotte Magnum labelDelamotte is best known as the more affordable arm of Salon—the original luxury-collectible single vineyard Blanc de Blancs from Le Mesnil.  While that’s understandable, it tends to ignore the fact that Delamotte is a Champagne house of not in its own right (it’s much easier for other merchants to shout “Salon for $$” than to sell the Champagne on its own merit).  If one were making a case for Delamotte as a great producer on their own, you could look no further than their “Collection” wines.

These are the peak of the Delamotte range, held on the lees longer and disgorged late to capture the full glory of mature Champagne.  They have the racy brightness of their Cote de Blancs origins balanced against toasty, rich flavors that only come with age.

Arriving Friday, August 21st

Borgogno Derthona Timorosso bottle shot from https://www.borgogno.com

Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Derthona Timorasso Colli Tortonesi, Piedmont 2018 750ML ($69.95) $54.50 pre-arrival special
Grapelive 94 point “A few years ago, Walter Massa of Vigneti Massa almost single handedly brought the rare Timorasso grape back from extinction and now it is one of the hottest white wines made in the Piedmonte region. We are seeing many great producers jumping on the bandwagon, including the famed Vietti and this beautiful expression by the legendary Barolo maker Borgogno. Tasted at Slow Wine earlier this year, the 2018 Borgogno Derthona DOC should be arriving to the United States soon, though you’ll have to really work hard to get your hands on it as it is extremely limited, but you’ll be greatly rewarded for your hard work and search if you get your hands on it.… Read the rest
