Bollinger "La Grande Annee" Brut Champagne 2008

98 Decanter
97+ Wine Advocate
(3/29/2019) "Bollinger's 2008 La Grande Annee is superb, wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, ripe lemons, honeycomb, warm biscuits, dried white flowers and a delicate top note of walnuts and fino sherry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a beautifully refined mousse, superb concentration at the tightly wound core, incisive acids and a supremely elegant intermingling of Bollinger's oxidative stylistic signatures with fresh, vibrant fruit. The finish is long, precise and chalky. This is a Grande Annee built for the cellar-the real excitement will come with a bit more bottle age-but this is already a thrilling Champagne in the making. Finished with eight grams per liter dosage, it was disgorged by hand in July 2018. This is also the first vintage of Grande Annee to be bottled in Bollinger's new narrower-necked 1846 bottle, which should make for a slower evolving wine. Drink Date 2022 - 2060."

Marc Hebrart "Special Club" Brut Champagne 2013

Winemaker's Notes
The most revered Champagne expert in America, importer Terry Theise, has declared this Champagne nearly perfect! Here's what he had to say about this truly special wine, "There have been great ones over the years - 2002, 2008, 2012 - but none as otherworldly as this, the most exquisite young Champagne I have ever tasted. Deg. 8/29/17, it is quite different from the '12, but just as sublime. 2012 croons, and this one whispers. '12 leaps like a gazelle; '13 flaps its gossamer white wings. '12 is clearly and tangibly great; '13 is ethereally and hauntingly great. '13 is a little like 2008, but with less prominent acidity; still, it's in the family of high cirrus-y skies with mares' tails and ice-rainbows. I wish I had four plusses to give it. Each pure beautiful element of Champagne is carefully arranged to be examined and identified, until they all melt together into Pleiades of nuance and structure. It's an ivory-pale bride, shining with bliss and love, even through her gauzy veil. This weightless masterpiece is 30% PN from Mareuil (Faubourg d'Enfer, Croix Blanche, Pruche and Cotes), 25% Ay (Cheuzelles, Pierre Robert, and Le Leon) 35% CH old-vines Mareuil (Beauregard, Ramonette and Buisson Saint Loup) and 10% CH Oiry and Chouilly (Justice and Montaigu). It is also a Coeur de Cuvee."

Donnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese 2017

99 James Suckling
(9/19/2018) "Most people who drink wine know what a ripe peach tastes like. However, this wine gives you a completely new appreciation of the meaning of the word "peach". Beyond that, it possesses subtlety that is extremely rare anywhere in the world of food and wine. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Absolutely delicious now, but could be held for decades."

(6/2017) "Great interplay of creaminess and raciness, and there's the classic cassis note of this site with a great mineral freshness. Very long and pure. Try to live clean, take regular exercise and hope you'll be around when it's fully mature."

Brendan Stater-West "Les Chapaudaises" Saumur Blanc 2015

92 Our Score
(8/2017) Brendan Stater-West, an American teaching in Paris, fell in love with wine in the mid-2000s and decided to change gears. His passion for Chenin Blanc lead him to the cellars of Domaine Guiberteau in Saumur. Here, Romain Guiberteau taught him how to make beautiful Chenin and, eventually encouraged him to make his own wine. This is it! Preserved lemon, baked pear, chalk, cremini and thyme flavors lead a dense palate with a subtly searing finish. A very fine effort, worthy of a couple years in the cellar!

Etienne Doue "Cuvee Selection" Brut Champagne NV

91 Our Score
(10/2016) The Étienne Doué is back and, for the second season in a row, it is truly outstanding. This tiny grower-producer makes only a few thousand cases per year of this 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir Champagne. Look for flavors of baked apple and pear, brisk citrus, chalky minerality and light toast along with a fine and fresh bead that dances on the palate creating a wonderful creamy texture.

Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot Cremant du Jura Extra Brut NV

91 Our Score
(11/2017) This delicious bottling is 50% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir with the local varieties of Trousseau and Poulsard making up the remaining 10%. The wine sees no dosage (the addition of sugar after the secondary fermentation) and the result is a bone dry "extra brut" wine with crisp and mouthwatering acidity complemented by a creamy palate. The finish is lengthy with subtle hints of nuts. This is a great substitute for Champagne if you're looking to increase value without sacrificing quality.

Desparada "Fragment" Santa Barbara County Sauvignon Blanc 2017

91 Our Score
(6/2018) Winemaker Vailia From has been turning out some incredible wines under her Desparada label. Fragment is her Sauvignon Blanc. In 2017 she turned out 697 cases of this fullthrottle beauty! The wine sings of the warm Santa Barbara County sunshine where it grew up. Sourced from two excellent vineyards (McGinley and Presqu'ile), it is loaded with a mixed fruit basket of ripe, juicy and pure flavors including green apple, melon, lemon and lime zest, white grapefruit, guava, mango and more! Fresh green herbs and a hint of bell pepper add to the delightful list of aromas. Full and explosive on the palate, this intense, energetic and complex Sauvignon Blanc offers up immediate thirst quenching juiciness and refreshment that carries through to the long finish.
