WINE FLASH SALE- week 2 2012

January 7, 2012

another outstanding trio sings for us this week:


Fontanabianca Barbaresco Sori Burdin 2005 $33 vinopolflash special

Wine Spectator 93 points This has a wonderful nose of crushed strawberry and plum. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Long and chewy. A big, generous Barbaresco. Best after 2012. 650 cases made.”

Antonio Galloni 93 points  The estate’s 2005 Barbaresco Sori Burdin is a darker and more brooding wine than the Barbaresco. A generous, expansive wine, it flows with layers of dark fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and sweet toasted oak. The tannins are firm, but beautifully integrated in this very pleasing wine from Fontanabianca. It is a commendable effort. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020” 

 next best listed price in the USA is $50.40 / bottle- average in USA $60.20 / bottle


Angelo Gaja Barbaresco 2006 375ml $69 vinopolflash special

 Antonio Galloni 93 points “The 2006 Barbaresco reveals terrific concentration, depth and purity. This is a remarkably soft, harmonious Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja with pretty notes of raspberries, crushed flowers and spices. The wine turns more powerful in the glass, as it gains additional richness, volume and depth, all of which carry through to the polished finish. The wine’s balance is impeccable, and this is easily is one the more harmonious, complete wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026”

Wine Enthusiast 93 points “Tasted at the infancy of what will undoubtedly be a long and generous lifespan, Gaja’s 2006 Barbaresco shows enormous promise and potential. The wine is elegant, rigidly linear and pristine, with well-defined notes of ripe berry fruit and soft spice. It’s an amazing achievement that tastes compact and opulent at the same time” 

next best listed price in the USA is $92 / 375ml bottle-average listed price in USA is $98.49 / 375ml bottle


 Perrier-Jouet Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque 2004 $79 vinopolflash special

Wine Spectator 92 points “Elegant, with lovely texture and focused, lively acidity. Flavors of currant, candied lemon zest, honey and white peach lead to the creamy, biscuit-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019”

The Wine News “A fresh, stylish wine with good structure, silky & elegant, based on the mineral notes of the best Chardonnay Grands Crus. White flowers evolve into white fruits but retain a diamond-cut precision. At its heart lie some of the best Chardonnay plots in the Côte des Blancs, including 36 hectares in Cramant and Avize with optimal orientation and exposure, which produce Chardonnays with beautiful poise and structure.These wine characteristics are reflected in Belle Epoque’s iconic Anemone bottle, designed in 1902 by leading Art Nouveau protagonist Emile Gallé, a friend of the House, which echoes the floral characteristics and purity of Perrier-Jouet wines”
