Arriving Friday

Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Echezeaux Grand Cru, Côte de Nuits 2021 750ml $389 pre-arrival special, only 3 bottles arriving!
Winery Notes “Echezeaux wines are a clear garnet or ruby red, the exact hue often varying considerably. When young these wines have vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas or a hint of torrefaction, combined with suggestions of red fruits and spices. After a few years the nose becomes vegetable or animal, with scents of mushrooms, truffles or woodland undergrowth. The great complexity of the bouquet makes this a wine both rich and feminine; fat and mellow, with fine, delicate and fairly supple tannins.

“Maison Joseph Drouhin”
Joseph Drouhin Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits 2009 750ml $579 special, 2 bottles available
Wine Advocate 94 Points “The 2009 Griotte-Chambertin is beautiful, elegant and totally weightless. This shows gorgeous subtlety and inner juiciness through to the nuanced finish. Griottes, spices and flowers linger on the close. My sense is this is holding a lot back in reserve at the moment. The Griotte-Chambertin is made from estate fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.”

“Saul Mutchnick makes small batches of stellar white wines at a corrugated tin outpost in the Eola-Amity Hills. For me, they are among the best in Oregon.”
-Michael Alberty, The Oregonian

Inspired by the crisp whites of the Friuli region in Northeast Italy, Championship Bottle combs through the Willamette’s best cool climate sites to find the unique terroirs that infuse the wines texture, minerality, and elegant acidity that they are known for.
