#5 Wine of the Year – Wine Spectator Top 100 in 2018
Antonio Galloni 98+ points
“The 2008 Dom Pérignon is fabulous, but quite remarkably, it was even more open when I tasted it a year ago. Bright, focused and crystalline in its precision, the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best.

Nicolas Maillart’s Staff Favorite Champagne


We’ve carried the Champagnes of Nicolas Maillart in the past, but were blown away when tasting through them recently—enough that we’ve gone deep on the entire lineup. These are some of the most exciting wines from Champagne that we’ve tasted in some time, and they’re at prices that keep them firmly within reach.

Nicolas Maillart’s family has a grape-growing tradition in Champagne that dates back to at least the 18th century -some documents indicate the family has been farming grapes since the 1500s.

Château Joanin Bécot


Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux doesn’t have the same name recognition as nearby Saint-Émilion or Pomerol, but that is exactly what makes it so exciting. Excellent terroirs exist within its humble boundaries, and this fact makes it a playground for Bordeaux insiders in search of fantastic values. 

Exhibit A: Château Joanin Bécot. Named for the tiny hamlet of Joanin and the Bécot family, the estate produces two typical Right Bank blends, including the attractively priced Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux.

Lisini’s Classic Brunello

Including 2011 & 2012 Ugolaia


Lisini is a classic producer, both in style and in that they were one of the original 25 wineries in the Brunello Consortium. They’re known for powerful wines that see extensive aging in large casks and bottle before release, which softens their textures and gives them wonderful secondary flavors. These are reference-point Brunellos that belong in the cellar of any collector, particularly the under-the-radar (and under-$100) single-vineyard Ugolaia.
