|Varietal:||Merlot , Cabernet Franc , Cabernet Sauvignon|
A 2010 Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Fronsac, France. Deep ruby color with tight rim variation. Dark fruits hints of plum and raspberry with a hint of slate minerality. It has a long finish on the palette and bal...

Petrus Pomerol Grand Vin 1971: Drank this on the occasion of my wife's 40th birthday. Ruby red color with subtle mahogany edges; subtle violet notes on the nose, dusty stewed prunes, subtle green peppers; amazingly balanced, still lightly tannic on the...

Destined to be a classic. Drinks well now, but shows a lot of potential down the stretch--imagining this wine in 5-10 years is pure pleasure.

This is an interesting as well as great vintage for Latour. As indicated in my barrel tasting report, Latour's 1994 possesses an atypically high percentage of Merlot (27%) in the final blend. Because of this, the wine appears to have a sweeter, more fl...
Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir Domaine des Malandes Vin Blanc Vin Tranquille France Bourgogne A.o.c. Lyne et Jean-Bernard Marchive (2003)
|Winery:||Domaine des Malandes|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Chablis » Vaudésir|
The big daddy in the Domaine des Malandes range. This one is actually made with a touch of oak and it really works well. If youre going to pay this much, you should be serving it with lobster.
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pauillac|
This was reticent on the nose with lots of slow to emerge dried strawberry fruit and rich leafy notes. The combination of sweet maderization notes and drying tannins makes this seem quite advanced. It has nice balance in the mouth but is a bit short a...
|Winery:||Domaine Maurice Lecestre|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Chablis|
Well-aired bottle. Almost like a Sancerre but without the grassy bits. Nose of mineral and lemon. Attacks with mild to medium acid, with taste of mineral and lemon and slight glycerin. Balanced. Well-integrated. Smooth. Elegant. No "stinky sock...
This second fiddle wine of the Mestreguilhem family (Entre-Deux-Mers) is a Merlot-dominant wine with a very attractive cherry and cedar plank nose; the entry is tinged with slightly bitter Cadbury Fruit and Nut Bar flavours but light tannin. The wine ...

This is a great value. I got it for $13. The only way I can describe this wine is that it's very sensual. It's not a hedonistic fruit bomb, but it's very much like a $30 california cab. Very warm (not in an alcoholic way) and well made with lots of dar...

|Varietal:||Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon , Cabernet Franc , Petit Verdot , Malbec|
The 2007 edition of this wine is exceptional - perhaps the best ever; the color is deep garnet with a plummy "right bank" nose that vies with any but the best Bordeaux. Merlot dominant, but clearly stuffed with Cabernet, this wine would win awards in ...

Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More
Oh dear, more good French wines well under $20, even after import across the Atlantic. I'm liking Chambers Street more and more, the more I visit their offerings. These guys seem to understand wine in ways that I do and like. In their essay below there's a link to a current Asimov article on Muscadet. It's also well worth jumping to and reading.... Read More
A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC. ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

This second fiddle wine of the Mestreguilhem family (Entre-Deux-Mers) is a Merlot-dominant wine with a very attractive cherry and cedar plank nose; the entry is tinged with slightly bitter Cadbury Fruit and Nut Bar flavours but light tannin. The wine is perfect now with a pleasant red fruit finish. Excellent value. 88 points. Read More
Nose is fruity but kind of vacant. Sweet and jammy palate. Blech. Read More

Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More
