Cedric Bouchard "Roses de Jeanne Les Ursules" Blanc de Noirs 2012

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The 2012 Blanc de Noirs Les Ursules is another knockout. Here it is the freshness and energy of Pinot Noir that makes the strongest impression. White orchard fruit, flowers, white pepper and mint give the Ursules its distinctly high-toned personality. The interplay between the richness of the Pinot Noir and inherent tension that characterizes all of these wines is dazzling. Scents of orchard fruit, spice, herb and flowers infuse the creamy, voluptuous layered finish. Disgorged: April 2016. No dosage."

Cedric Bouchard "Roses de Jeanne La Boloree" Blanc de Blancs 2012

96+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The highlight in this range, the 2012 Blanc de Blancs La Bolorée is a wine that will make readers weak at the knees. Deceptively medium in body, the Bolorée opens up in the glass to reveal exceptional depth, power and intensity. Historically, the Bolorée has needed a few years in bottle after release to show at its best. I expect that to be the case here as well. There is real thrust to the white orchard fruit, citrus, slate and floral notes, but readers need to be patient. The heady, explosive finish hints at a very bright future. La Bolorée, Bouchard's old-vine Pinot Blanc, is one of the hardest wines anywhere in the world to track down. Those fortunate enough to find it are in for a real treat. Disgorged: April 2016. No dosage."

Cedric Bouchard "Roses de Jeanne Presle" Blanc de Noirs 2012

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The 2012 Blanc de Noirs Presle is another superb wine from Cédric Bouchard. Ample, creamy and layered, the 2012 possesses exceptional balance from start to finish. Intense red stone fruit, mineral, kirsch, wild flowers, smoke, slate and herbs are some of the many notes that give the 2012 its distinctive personality. All the elements are in the right place. In terms of its feel, the Presle is the creamiest and most overtly Pinot-driven Champagne in the range. In a word: magnificent! Disgorged: April 2016. No dosage."

Tenuta Degli Sforza "Marchesano" Colli d'Imola Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva 2011

This Cabernet Sauvignon made our jaws drop. Cab lovers, do not miss.
94 Our Score
(4/2017) This is as good of a $50 Cabernet Sauvignon as you will ever find. Interestingly, it's not from Napa Valley but from a very small, eccentric producer in Emilia Romagna. The hand-picked grapes, some of which were allowed to dry by over-ripening on the vine, were vinified and then aged for 24 months in small, fine oak and another year in bottle before release. The resulting wine has an incredible nose that is intense, complex and loaded with wood spice, leather and dark berry aromas. The palate is oozing with dark berries, oak and spice with gripping tannins that smooth out nicely on the oh-so-long finish. Complex and layered with serious depth of flavor, this outstanding Cabernet is done just the way we like em at Vin Chicago.

Cave des Tilleuls Humagne Rouge Grand Reserve 2009

92 Our Score
(3/2017) The wines of Fabienne Cottagnoud (and her husband Marc-Henri, who manages the vineyards) showcase the indigenous varietals and unique terroir of the Valais AOC in the Swiss Alps. Fabienne's low-interventionist approach allows the mineral concentrated soil of their property in Vetroz to express itself through each bottle. Humagne Rouge is a slow-to-ripen varietal that has a tendency to show savory elements such as mushroom, dried herbs, and smoked meat- not unlike a Northern Rhone Syrah with some age. Fabienne achieves perfect balance with refined yet firm tannins, medium-weight, and pure elegance while maintaining the rustic sensibility of the region. If you have never before tried Swiss wine, this is a perfect opportunity to taste a traditional expression of the Valais.

92-93 Our Score
92 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "Black cherries, graphite, underbrush, spring flowers and spice show in the ruby colored 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County, which is a mix of Bien Nacido, Sebastiano and La Encantada Vineyards. Medium-bodied, pure and balanced, with fine tannin and a silky texture, drink this high quality beauty over the coming 7-8 years. The elevage here is 15 months in 25% new French oak."

Minimus "Black Locust" Applegate Valley Syrah 2013

90+ Our Score
(4/2017) Minimus wines are produced by Chad Stock, a natural winemaker who believes in mimimal intervention to acheive a wine that is pure and speaks of its place of origin. His "Black Locust" bottling is 100% Syrah from the SM vineyard in Applegate Valley. It was aged in Acacia wood, a barrel that has more aggressive tannin that French oak. The wine needed to be aged for lengthy time in bottle so it can soften, but it still has plenty of chewy grip. Although "natural," Chad used a small dose of sulphur before bottling which really helped to preserve the pure and delicious black fruit flavors of the Syrah. Plenty of natural acidity provides freshness and Syrah's tell-tale secondary notes of black pepper, smoked meat and a whiff of lavender add complexity. Production is tiny, so get your hands on this one before it's gone and strap in for one heck of a wine drinking experience!
