Domaine Fourrier 1er Cru "Les Goulots" Vieilles Vigne Gevrey Chambertin 2013

91-93 Burghound
91-94 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(1/2015) "Dark red with ruby highlights. Aromas of blueberry, raspberry, leather and game, lifted by a crushed stone element. In a supple, ripe style, but with terrific sappy intensity and lift to the crushed raspberry and mineral flavors. The tannins are fine-grained and sweet. A stunning example of this calcaire-rich premier cru."

Domaine Robert Denogent "La Croix" Vieilles Vignes Pouilly-Fuisse 2013

90 Burghound
(10/15/2015) "The 2013 Pouilly-Fuissé "La Croix Vieilles Vignes" comes from 80+ year old vines planted in soils with a high proportion of schist. Here the wood treatment is a bit more subtle though it's not invisible as the cool and exotic aromas can more easily be appreciated. There is better intensity and a bit better detail as well to the middle weight flavors that terminate in a saline and mineral-infused finale that is both focused and impressively persistent. This balanced effort should reward 3 to 5 years of cellaring. Drink: 2018+."

Domaine Perrot Minot Gevrey Chambertin 2014

Burghounds Allen Meadow is notoriously one of the toughest scorers in the business. We gave it a few extra points but completely agree with his review. Beautiful wine!

(1/2016) "A cool, pure and airy nose present notes of red and dark earth-inflected fruit where once again there is a discreet floral wisp. There is more punch to the delicious and again seductively textured medium-bodied flavors where a fine bead of minerality adds a sense of lift to the rich, sappy and lingering finish. While certainly very pretty this isn't overly complex but if this can add more depth than my score envisions, it should make for a very fine Gevrey villages as I like the delivery. Drink: 2020+"

Domaine Henri Gouges "Les Pruliers" Nuits St Georges 1er Cru 2012

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $94.79!
93-96 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(1/2014) "Gouge's 2012 Nuits St. Georges Les Pruliers is less immediate than some of the other wines in the range. Here it is the crystalline purity of the aromas and flavors that stands out most. Violets, plums, licorice, sweet spices and tar are all woven together in a wine that shows the finesse Nuits can at times achieve. The tannins are firm yet also impeccable in their silkiness. Structurally quite classic, the 2012 will reward cellaring."

90-92 Burghound
(10/2016) "Here too there is a discreet touch of wood setting off the ripe yet cool nose of green fruit, pear, apple and algae scents. There is once again excellent volume and richness to the intense medium weight plus flavors that terminate in a zesty, even tangy finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose reappears."

Camille Giroud Vosne-Romanee 2010

Burghound's review was tasted out of barrel in 2012. We tasted this out of bottle in November 2015 and it blew us away!
89-92 Burghound
92 Our Score
(11/2015) The grapes for this bottling are purchased from one grower who owns an old-vine parcel in the lieu-deit of Chalandins. This is important to note, as this is what makes this a truly great "village-level" wine and an excellent value for high-quality Burgundy. After first opening, the wine shows it's smoky and spicy character with a hint of button mushroom and dried cherries. After some time, it really opens up and the gorgeous fruit emerges with layers of complexity from spcies, earth and minerality. The palate is round, rich and precise with impeccable balance and an extremely long finish. Our sample bottle continued to improve during four days of tasting!

Domaine Henri Gouges "Clos Des Porrets" Nuits St Georges 1er Cru 2012

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $79.99!
92-94+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(1/2014) "The 2012 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets Saint-Georges is beautifully round and supple. Here the fruit is distinctly red-toned, with hints of iron, earthiness, smoke and tobacco that add complexity. The 2012 will be highly appealing young because of its pure density, but it also appears to have the stuffing to age well for a number of years. This is a great showing from Gouges. Drinking Window: 2017 - 2032."

Domaine Sylvain Langoureau "La Garenne" 1er Cru Puligny Montrachet 2013

An exceptional value for a seriously delicious 1er Cru Puligny!

91 Burghound
(6/2015) "There is a vaguely exotic character to the elegant aromas of acacia blossom, citrus and delicately spiced pear that is in keeping with the cool, precise, intense and stony medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract and saline elements before culminating in a clean and beautifully well-detailed finale. Good stuff and I very much like the balance."

Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 2013

93+ Our Score
(5/2016) Famed grower Bruno Colin crushed it in 2013. We were lucky enough to taste this wine in Bruno's cellar last year. Now that it's here, it tastes even better! Wonderfully complex, it has a noticeably creamy texture and screaming acidity. Intense minerality is balanced out properly with flavors of pear and ripe citrus. Very long on the finish. Drinking well now, it will be even better in 3-4 years.

89-92 Burghound
(10/2016) "A deft touch of wood frames slightly riper but still appealingly fresh floral, green fruit and tidal pool nuances that merge seamlessly into rich, concentrated and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that are also notably powerful, all wrapped in a mildly austere and bitter lemon-inflected finale. Though more depth will surely develop this is somewhat simple today."
