Mourre du Tendre

Subscriber-Only Special


We’re always on the hunt for hyper-traditional, old school Rhone producers. With Chateau Mourre du Terre, we’ve scored a massive success.  This is everything we love about old-school Rhone wines wrapped up into one very reasonably priced package.  Their importer asks the question “what would Roberto Conterno do if he owned a vineyard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape?” and that’s the best analogy here.  Lovers of age-worthy, old-school CdP should be racing to buy these.

The estate owns a meager 3ha of vineyards in Chateauneuf du Pape, and the oldest vines date back to 1929.

The Rare Cristal Vinotheque Bottlings

Roederer’s Cristal is one of the premier bottlings in Champagne—a tete du cuvee that always lives up to the hype.  Even better than Cristal? Cristal Vinotheque—a late released bottling that represents the absolute pinnacle of what Roederer is capable of.

We’re pleased to offer two stunning vintages of Cristal Vinotheque: 1995 and 1996.

10% Off In Stock German Magnums


Magnums of German Riesling are objectively the best large formats out there.  This is a fact, not open to dispute—we refuse to hear any counter-arguments.

Somehow need convincing?  Consider the “pouring wingspan” of a German magnum.  From a seated position, a host can easily pour into any glass at a dinner party of eight people—that extra three feet of bottle makes it happen.  Unless you’re Mrs. Incredible, you’d have to walk around to pour a magnum of Burgundy, but with that 1.5L

10% Off Already-Value Burgundy


“Collotte remains one of the most under the radar growers in Marsannay. At their best, these wines are striking for their purity of fruit and overall sense of harmony.” –Antonio Galloni

A vintage like 2015 isn’t just a great year in Burgundy—it’s a great buying opportunity if you know where to look.  While the prices for the top wines from the best producers skyrocketed, the value producers’ prices barely budged.  That’s an exceptional opportunity, as the floor rises far more than the ceiling in a warm year like ’15.

DRC’s Richebourg is one of the greatest wines in Burgundy.  While less expensive than La Tâche or the namesake Romanée-Conti, it’s a bottling that can compete with them all.  From a top-notch vintage like 2002?  It’s an absolute gem—a rare beast that’d be the centerpiece of any collection.  From now until midnight tomorrow (Wednesday, February 5th), we’re offering you over $340 off our sole bottle of this legend of Burgundy.
