Pierre Peters Cuvee Speciale ‘Les Chetillons’ Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut, Champagne 2013 750ML ($179.95) $159 special, only 12 bottles available!
Antonio Galloni 97+ points
“The 2013 Brut Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons is outrageously beautiful. I remember tasting it as vin clair in March, 2014. Today, as a finished Champagne from bottle, the 2013 captures all of the intense ripeness and bright acidity that make this vintage so exceptional. A wine of cut and brilliance, the 2013 will thrill readers who enjoy Blanc de Blancs.

New Wines from Cayuse!
 
Cayuse is one of the most in-demand wineries in North America, producing wines from both Rhone and Bordeaux varieties that are among the finest in the world and selling them almost exclusively through their mailing list.  Even if you wanted to buy their wines directly off that list, you’d be looking at a looooong wait before getting an opportunity—so this is a rare treat.

We’re always on the hunt for more of these hyper-rare bottlings—and this set of wines is a prime example of why they’re so exciting.

Burgundy’s Top Value?

The Wines of Domaine Collotte


“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 2018 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.

“Among the Most Compelling in Spain”

New Wines from Comando G


“Comando G continues to serve as the reference point in Gredos.” –Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

“Today, along with Comando G, a handful of producers working in the Sierra de Gredos is showing how distinctive the wines can be from an area that was ignored for so long… the bottles with the most finesse and nuance, and which have drawn the most interest, are from Comando G, whose wines are now among the most compelling in Spain.”
