Wine Enthusiast 92 
“Cherry fans need to rally around this bottle. The wine’s sweet, black-cherry aroma is almost cassis like in its intensity. Notes of orange, pine needles and forest floor add interest, but from the backseat. The palate features a lighter cherry flavor—perhaps Bing or Rainier—with notes of thyme and seared steak.… Read the rest

The Wines of Antichi Vigneti Cantalupo:


Started in 1969, Antichi Vigneti Cantalupo has only expanded on the wine-making tradtions of their lands dating back thousands of years, including innovations like the use of Oak Barrels over the foudre used since the days of the Roman Empire.

Located southeast of Gattinara and just under a hundred miles north of Barolo, the Ghemme commune of the alto-Piemonte region, tucked up into the foothills of the alps is a long neglected producer of refined nebbiolos.… Read the rest

Domaine Michel Juillot Corton-Perriers Grand Cru Rouge 2020 750ml $119 special, 12 bottles available
Burghound 92 Points  “Like several wines in the range, there is a hint of the sauvage adding interest to the notably ripe yet still fresh aromas of black cherry, raspberry liqueur and a healthy dollop of wood and menthol.… Read the rest

Cecile-Tremblay (Arriving in Late March)

Emerging onto the wine scene in 2003, the wines of Cecile-Tremblay have been exploding in popularity ever since. With family ties back to that of the legendary Henri Jayer, this family has been slowing reclaiming prized plots of the Cote de Nuits that we’re formerly leased as as sharecrops for other producers. These wines are special and now head for cult status like Fourrier and Dujac, so don’t expect great deals like those listed below for long!
 
Domaine Cecile Tremblay Les Feusselottes, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 2019 750ml $999 special, 7 bottles in stock
Wine Advocate 95 points 
“The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes has also turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of raspberries and blackberries mingled with hints of orange rind, violets and exotic spices.… Read the rest
