Roberto Voerzio "Vigneto Pozzo dell'Annunziata" Barbera d'Alba Riserva 2008

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail on this Magnum - $299.99!
97 James Suckling
94 Wine Advocate
(6/2013) "Vorezio offers new perspective on one of Piedmont's most popular red grapes. The 2008 Barbera d'Alba Riserva Vigneto Pozzo dell'Annunziata (tasted in a magnum) delivers impressive sophistication to Barbera. Careful barrel aging has shaped aromas of bacon fat, smoke, underbrush, rum cake and bitter chocolate. The wine shows impeccable smoothness and elegance in the mouth, with a spicy acidic accent that will appeal to die-hard Barbera enthusiasts. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."

Roberto Voerzio "La Serra" Barolo 2008

95 Wine Spectator
96+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(4/2012). "The 2008 Barolo La Serra emerges from the glass with dark red fruit, tar, smoke, licorice, spices and new leather. Today the 2008 comes across as surprisingly dark and masculine. The high-toned floral notes that are typical of this site have been replaced by a much darker, brooding register filled with tar, incense and black fruit notes. The wine freshens up beautifully with time in the glass as the aromatics become a bit more expressive. Voerzio's 2008 La Serra is a huge and hugely promising wine. The firm tannins argue for at least a few more years in bottle. A hint of rose petal lingers on the intese finish."

Chateau Cos d'Estournel Saint Estephe 2008

92+ Wine Advocate
(5/2011) "Closed but promising, this is a classic Cos revealing lots of tannin along with damp earth, black currant, sweet black cherry, graphite, licorice and truffle characteristics. This medium to full-bodied, structured, firm, broodingly backward, impenetrable effort demands 5-6 years of bottle age; it should drink well for 20-25 years."

Jean Lallement Millesime Grand Cru Brut 2008

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $91.99!
93+ Our Score
This 100% Verzernay stunner is composed of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with less than 750 bottles produced. It is taut and powerful, needing a bit of air to open up before the refreshing citrus reveals itself. The yeast component is compelling and the balance uncanny. The Pinot really shines through here. At this price, it is a rare treat!

Andre Clouet Millesime Brut 2008

92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(5/2013) "Clouet's 2008 Brut Millesime shows quite a bit more tension and focus than the 2007, hardly a surprise given then personality of the vintage. Bright, saline notes frame expressive red fruits, flowers and sweet spices. The 2008 Brut is a gorgeous wine with plenty of appeal today, but it will also develop beautifully in bottle. Stylistically it is less overt than the 2007 but places more emphasis on length. Brut Millesime is mostly Pinot, with 30-40% Chardonnay."

Jules Desjourneys "L'Interdit" Vin de France MMVIII 2008

93 Our Score
93 Wine Advocate
(8/2011) "The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray's 2008 Fleurie - combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers - that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, "vin de France." Believe me, this is "vin de France" in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces "musicien francais." The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage - in fact, after recovering from my chagrin at this wine's having been denied its rightful appellation, I am now entirely reconciled to the two sites having been blended, inasmuch as the whole seems, remarkably, even greater than the sum of its already profoundly delicious parts! This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on."

Piazzo "Sottocastello di Novello" Barolo Riserva 2008

A rare sub-$50 Barolo Riserva! Even at eight years of age the Sottocastello di Novello still shows some youthful tannins. Give it until its 10th birthday to start sampling and you will be well rewarded.
92 Our Score
92 Wine Enthusiast
(12/31/2014) "Red berry, blue lilac, baking spice and Mediterranean herb lead the nose. On the palate, notes of white pepper, sage and tobacco back up the bright red cherry flavors. It's still young, with aggressive tannins and bright acidity. Drink after 2018."

Phillip Togni "Ca' Togni" Napa Valley Sweet Red 2008

92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2013) "The 2008 Ca' Togni, a sweet wine made from from Black Hamburgh, graces the palate with hints of Darjeeling tea, mint, savory herbs, dark cherries and orange zest. As always, Ca' Togni is exotic, eccentric and beautifully perfumed throughout, all in a medium-bodied style that avoids heaviness."

Domaine Bachey Legros "Clos Rousseau" 1er Cru Santenay 2008

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $29.99!
91 Our Score
This old vine cuvee from Clos Rousseau uses fruit from 80-year-old plants! The wine is really lovely, displaying floral and fresh red fruit flavors as well as button mushroom, wet leaves and gritty rock earth notes. The 2008 vintage is shaping up to be stellar and classic in every sense, and with its restrained alcohol, medium-plus acidity and elegant texture, this wine is a perfect example. Grilled tuna steaks or duck confit and this Pinot Noir would make for a very enjoyable evening.
