2014 Thibault Liger-Belair Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Aux Charmes"
New!
90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An exceptionally fresh, pure and surprisingly expressive nose features plenty of floral character on the red cherry, pomegranate, earth and soft sauvage elements. The fleshy and velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors possess a notably round mid-palate before tightening up considerably on the saline and mildly austere finish that really coats the mouth with dry extract." (01/2016)

90-92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin is endowed with gorgeous depth and overall balance. Exceptionally polished and creamy throughout, the 2012 impresses for its resonance and layered personality. Gently spiced, earthy notes add complexity as the wine opens up in the glass. This is a fabulous wine in its class. -- Antonio Galloni " (01/2014) 89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Outstanding Top Value! There is enough wood to be easily perceptible though not so much as to impede an appreciation of the spicy dark berry fruit, earth and und...

One of the best value producers in all of Burgundy is Frédéric Esmonin, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and not max out your credit. According to the importer, "Domaine Frédéric Esmonin, from Burgundy's Gevrey-Chambertain appellation, is a true family collaboration that consists of Frederic, his father, André, and his mother, Michele. They have been farming their 10-acres of family vineyards for generations and selling their fruit to the likes of Drouhin, Jadot, and Leroy. (In fact, some of the very great wines from Leroy in the 1950's are believe...

92 points James Suckling: "The very spicy perfumed nose draws you into this rich wine. Shows a hint of earth and quite substantial tannins,which are already beautifully integrated. The finish long and rather sophisticated. Drink or hold. " (02/2018) 90 points Wine Spectator: "The cherry and plum fruit is shaded by sweet spice notes in this elegant red. Balanced and long, echoing spice and incense details on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2030." (04/2019)

Allen Meadows writes: "If the line-up of wines, not to mention half the domaine name sounds awfully like the old Domaine Heresztyn, it's not your imagination. That's because Florence Heresztyn and her husband Simon Mazzini leased 5.5 ha of vines from her father and aunt where their first vintage under the new name was in 2012; I should point out that Domaine Heresztyn still exists but only as a seller of grapes for a few parcels of vines that were not leased such as the Borniques and Corbeaux. The appellations might be the same but Florence stresses that...

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An attractively spicy nose features notes of earth and dark currant along with floral and sauvage nuances. There is excellent volume to the muscular, dense and powerful flavors that deliver excellent length on the moderately austere finale. This serious and built-to-age effort stops just short of rusticity and is well-worth considering provided that you have the patience to cellar it for at least 7 to 8 years." (01/2016)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " A pure, elegant and airy nose reflects notes of wood, violet, earth and red currant aromas. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is distinctly more refined with its delicious, detailed and mineral-inflected finish that is again shaped by impressively fine-grained tannins. This lovely effort will need at least 6 to 8 years of cellar time and reward 12 to 15." (01/2016)

2005 Frederic Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin "Vieilles Vignes"
Back In Stock!
87-90 points Allen Meadows: "Reduction. The round yet delineated and intense flavors are supple and rather forward on the mid-palate but this tightens up quickly on the structured and serious finish. This is very Gevrey in character and packs good punch and finishing depth even if it's a bit awkward today." (Tasted: Jan 01, 2007)

94 points Decanter: "Consistently one of my favourite Dujac wines, this hails from a 1.15ha parcel in a well-surrounded premier cru. The 85% whole bunches certainly have an influence on the aromas and flavours of the wine, but they aren't excessively sappy and spicy. Attractive and nuanced, this is a wonderfully refined Gevrey. Drinking Window 2023 - 2029. (TA) " (11/2018) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Combottes 1er Cru, which was slightly affected by hail, albeit affecting the canopy rather than the bunches, has an appealing, p...

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Strong reduction blocks an evaluation of the nose. There is first-rate intensity to the punchy and mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent power on the equally focused, balanced, firm, highly persistent and youthfully austere finish. Like the Gevrey 1er this is not super dense but even so it is very well balanced. That said, note well that plenty of time will be required before this reaches its full apogee." (01/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2...

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Airy and cool aromas are comprised by notes of black cherry, raspberry, spice and newly turned earth. There is flat out superb intensity to the mineral-driven and sleekly muscular middle weight plus flavors that possess a more sophisticated mouthfeel before concluding in a dusty, serious, palate coating and ultra-saline finish that goes on and on. Note however that this beauty of a Griotte is markedly firm and will not be an especially inviting early drinker." (01/2018) 95 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Griotte f...

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Generous wood stops short of completely dominating the fresh array of spiced red berry fruit aromas that are notably floral in character. The supple and delicious if lighter weight flavors flash a touch of minerality on the lingering if mildly dry finish. My predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the dryness is related to the evident gas rather than a lack of phenolic maturity. Even so, this is on the lighter side for a grand cru." (01/2019)


1997 Domaine Tortochot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Back In Stock!
Fourth generation Chantal Tortochet took over for her retired father Gabriel in 1996 (Domaine Tortochot dates back to the end of the 19th century). It has been under her leadership that the Domaine has updated the vineyards and restored the winery, as well as pursued conversion of the vineyards to organic viticulture.
Price: $119.99

93-95 points Vinous: "(destemmed): Good dark red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, spices, crushed stone and red licorice. Intensely flavored and penetrating, boasting terrific energy and lift to its flavors of red berries, minerals and flowers. Very concentrated and dense but conveys a weightless impression. The palate-saturating finish offers spectacular rising perfume. A wine from very stony soil: I'm sure I would have picked it blind as coming from Chambolle-Musigny. (ST)" (01/2018) 90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here too there is enough...

2014 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin
New!
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Vines from a number of growers on the lower slopes of Gevrey-Chambertin contribute to this wine. It has the plentiful tannins typical of the village yet also exudes attractive juicy red fruit. It will need another year or two to show its best, so drink from 2019. (RV)" (05/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Bright cherry and strawberry fruit mark this lively, elegant red. Succulent, firming up, with lingering accents of spice and mineral. Best from 2018 through 2026. (BS)" (04/2017) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Wisps of oak a...

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Ripe notes of earth and violets add breath to the cassis and plum aromas that are trimmed in a touch of menthol. There is excellent volume to the very rich and round middle weight plus flavors that possess a velvety mouthfeel on the focused and impressively long if slightly rustic and youthfully austere finish. *Outstanding*" (01/2018)
Price: $124.99


98 points James Suckling: "An extraordinary wine, even for this very special Grand Cru. So mineral and pure with a gigantic concentration of sour cherries. The extremely fine and racy finish lifts off towards the heavens. You could drink it on release, but this has enormous aging potential. " (02/2019) 97 points Decanter: "From a cool, stony parcel that's influenced by the Combe Grisard, this is the pick of the Faiveley grands crus in 2017, making the best of its fresher terroir. Smoky, scented and alluring, it has well-handled wood, 40% new. It's a pr...


92-94 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. Pungent spicy lift to the aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, crushed stone and menthol. Intensely flavored and high-pitched on the palate, conveying superb sappy energy and pronounced floral energy. Not yet especially pliant, but this dense, sharply delineated wine really dances on the palate and saturates the mouth on the very long, firmly tannic, saliva-inducing finish. It's virtually impossible to find this style of wine outside Burgundy. (ST)" (01/2018) 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here...


88-91 points Vinous: "Good full red. Lovely perfumed aromas of red fruits, minerals, licorice and leather. Smooth entry, then suave and vibrant, with a restrained sweetness and better retention of primary fruit than the Combe aux Moines. Fresh and nicely delineated. Finishes with fine, late tannins and very good fruit. (ST)" (03/2002)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Initially there was a touch of reduction so be sure to decant this. With a few minutes of air pretty aromas of complex and cool red Pinot fruit, earth and a hint of humus give way to equally earthy medium weight flavors that possess good volume and a fine muscularity, all wrapped in a very firm but not aggressive finish. This understated effort should be lovely in a few years." (01/2011)
Price: $119.99

2016 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru (1.5L)
New!
98 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, powerful version, backed by flashy oak and beefy tannins that sandwich the flavors of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, iron and tobacco. Concentrated, yet vibrant and long. Best from 2024 through 2050. 500 cases made, 70 cases imported. *Collectibles* (BS)" (04/2019) 93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is softly oaky with a wonderfully spicy array of black cherry, pungent earth and evident sauvage nuances that can be found on the impressively rich and seductively textured broad-shouldered and concentrate...

2003 Frédéric Magnien Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
New!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Myriad spices, flowers, and black cherries make up the nose of the decadent 2003 Charmes-Chambertin. Its medium to full-bodied personality is redolent of fruit, slathering the palate with cherries galore. Satin-textured, sensual, feminine, and seamless, it reveals an impressively long finish. (PR)" (08/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Urgent crushed raspberry, pungent spices, minerals, game, flowers and underbrush on the nose. Concentrated, pliant and spicy, with ver...

97 points James Suckling: "Very old vines from early 1920s, which were planted at very high density (more than 11,000 vines per hectare). It has a very impressive sense of completeness and a regal air. Loaded with red cherries, orange zest and fresh sappy aromas. It delivers velvety, fine tannins in a seamless mode. Very impressive from start to finish. Already drinking well. This has a good twenty-year window ahead." (02/2018) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Produced from vines owned by Louis Jadot, this wine, like all the grand crus in Gevry-Chambertin c...

97 points James Suckling: "Deep, dark and mysterious, rich and velvety, this is another amazing 2017 Grand Cru from Faiveley. The enormous power is tucked away in the background, so that you barely notice it. Wonderful minerality, married to caressing texture on the palate. Iron in the soul! Try to wait until 2023." (02/2019) 94-96 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru comes from two parcels. It has a charming bouquet of ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry aromas; hints of vanilla pod and rose petal lend complexity. The palate ...

95 points Decanter: "Lavaux-St-Jacques came into its own in 2017, thanks to the influence of cool breezes from the Hautes Côtes. This old-vine cuvée, aged in 40% new wood, is wonderfully fresh and precise, with chalky minerality and a lingering finish. (TA) " (11/2018) 95 points James Suckling: "Very fragrant with effusive, floral notes and some sour cherry. This is a very graceful and filigree wine, in which the tannins show at the end as if suddenly emerging from the depths. In spite of that, the finish is super elegant. " (02/2019) 90-93 points...

2017 Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru
Top Pick!
90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An elegant and admirably pure nose offers up notes of red cherry, spice, violet and lavender along with hints of earth and forest floor. The supple and almost delicate flavors exude a subtle minerality on the delicious if mildly short finish that once again flirts with dryness. Like the Chambertin, the balance isn't quite correctly dialed in but my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that it will." (01/2019) K&L Notes: 93-96 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Glowing fresh mid purple. Superb gra...

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the wood regimen is no longer subtle though it stops short of masking the beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, dark currant and freshly turned earth. The highly energetic and delineated middle weight plus flavors exude noticeable minerality on the powerful and focused finish that displays outstanding depth and persistence. Moreover, the finish really fans out as it sits on the palate." (01/2019) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers comes from Faiveley’s substantial four-hecta...

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Discreet but not invisible wood sets off distinctly earthy aromas of plum, dark currant, spice and a whisper of forest floor. There is both good volume and a lovely sense of delineation to the focused and powerful middle weight plus flavors that exude evident minerality on the slightly tangy but much more harmonious finish. While not perfectly balanced, it's close." (01/2019) K&L Notes: 92-96 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "From vines planted in 1961. No great density of colour but there is a heavenly no...


96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is completely different from the Bèze aromatically speaking as here the nose is brooding and recalcitrant and only aggressive swirling liberates fresh scents of spice, wet stone, game and dark berry fruits. There is outstanding richness to the powerful and impressively scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a velvety quality to the mid-palate while also buffering the tightly wound core of firm tannins on the driving mineral-inflected and hugely persistent finish. This is a stunner o...

2005 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
Back In Stock!
95-97 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "As aromatically complex as the Clos des Cortons is, the Clos de Bèze goes it one better with a dazzling array of spice, earth, mineral, fruit and subtle floral aromas that change every few seconds but continue onto the elegant, pure, transparent and vibrant flavors that possess superb power and striking depth of material on the unbelievably long finish. This is also quite firmly structured but completely balanced and the flavors are the perfect example of the term power without weight. A monument in the making but...

96 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and stylish, with juicy black cherry and plum fruit accented by vanilla, toasty oak and spice details. Elements of earth and mineral chime in, assimilating into the dense structure. Seamless for such a young wine. (BS)" (04/2019) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again the wood treatment isn't subtle and here it's to the point that it fights somewhat with the otherwise beautifully layered aromas of various dark berry, freshly turned earth, humus and a pretty floral note. The texture of the attractively vibrant ...

92-95 points Vinous: "The third of Bruno Clair's Gevrey 1er Crus, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-St.-Jacques provides a fascinating window into one of the village's undisputed top sites. Here the impression is of pure power, energy and explosiveness. Leather, cedar, smoke and spice are some of the notes that flesh out in a dark, imposing Burgundy that will require considerable patience. (AG)" (04/2015) 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A wonderfully elegant, ultra-cool and restrained nose exhibits notes of essence of herbal tea, red pinot fruit, w...

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is as cool and restrained as the Clos St. Jacques though the nose is a good deal spicier and more complex with its mélange of floral, pomegranate, tobacco and broad range of red berry fruit scents. There is a really beguiling mix of detail, tension, power and volume to the big-bodied flavors that possess plenty of supporting dry extract on the saline, austere and beautifully balanced finale. I very much like the length but note well that this is not going to be an especially good candidate for early consumption....


95 points Decanter: "Clos des Issarts is a Faiveley monopole, well-placed next to the higher part of Ruchottes-Chambertin on two separate terraces. It's another impressive 2017 from a cooler premier cru, with subtle reduction, some underlying grip and lots of scented red cherry and pomegranate fruit complemented by 40% new wood. (TA)" (11/2018) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Issarts 1er Cru is a 0.5-hectare monopole adjacent to the Clos de Ruchottes from Rousseau. The most sensual of Faiveley’s Gevrey Premier Crus, it has a s...

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Classic ruby. An intensely sauvage, cool and relatively airy red currant suffused nose that is also distinctly mineral-inflected leads to solidly structured and overtly muscular flavors that finish with some dryness. There appears to be more than sufficient phenolic ripeness to avoid the dryness so it's possible that there is still some unabsorbed sulfur from the bottling but otherwise, it's not clear that this is going to harmonize before it dries out. My score reflects this caution." (01/2011)
Price: $139.99

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, which is a mix of Mazoyères and Charmes, has a delightful bouquet that needed little encouragement from the glass, with heavenly aromas of raspberry, crushed strawberry, ground stone verging on slate, perhaps more Mazoyères than Charmes (which is no surprise given that two-thirds of the vines are from that side of the grand cru). The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity, with a lighter finish than I expected, maybe needing a little more substance to ...

91 points Wine Spectator: "A linear, tightly wound style, featuring violet, cherry and raspberry flavors accented by spice and toasty oak. Intense and well-structured, with spice notes echoing on the sinewy finish. Like a thoroughbred in the starting gate. Best from 2021 through 2033. (BS)" (05/2019) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A more elegant and airier nose combines notes of cassis and violet with hints of spice and oak. The delicious and relatively refined medium weight flavors flash evident minerality though the wood telegraphed by the nose shows up...


89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A top note of herbal tea sits atop the pretty aromas of dark berry, floral and a whiff of humus that is very Gevrey in character. The sleek, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors are not as dense as they usually are but they possess lovely depth and persistence on the somewhat austere bitter cherry pit-inflected finish." (01/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Loïc Dugat-Py opted to bottle the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes earlier than usual to capture its expressive fruit in all its plenitu...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Produced from vines owned by Louis Jadot, this wine, like all the grand crus in Gevry-Chambertin comes from a vineyard halfway up the slope behind the village. It has the proper structure, but such is the richness of this vintage, the fruit is already sumptuous, full of ripe cherry and berry flavors. At the same time, it is elegant and with such as stylish, smart aftertaste. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (02/2018) 96 points James Suckling: "The rose and dried-strawberry aromas with subtle stone, fruit tea and wal...

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is even more floral-inflected with an abundance of spice elements adding breadth to the airy and cool aromas of primarily red berries. Once again the mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors is quite sleek if not necessarily more complex on the sappy, focused and strikingly persistent finish. This is actually quite similar in quality and expression though with just a bit more mid-palate concentration." (01/2019) 96 points Decanter: "Les Ouvrées Rodin is a small cuvée of Clos de Bèze, selected from vines that ...

93 points Decanter: "Three parcels, all of them planted with the old-vine massal selections that are an important feature of the Dugat-Py holdings, make up this superb village red. It's focussed, fragrant and refined, with subtle aromatic spices from 50% whole bunches, glossy tannins and a fresh, mineral-edged finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030. (TA) " (10/2018) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy continues to show spectacularly, bursting from the glass with aromas of violet, cherries, cassis, subtle ...

2016 Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru (Previously $580) (Previously $580)
Top Pick!
95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chambertin Grand Cru contains 50% whole bunch fruit this year, after half the vineyard (three parcels) was decimated by frost. It has a very elegant bouquet that takes time to unfold in the glass: blackberry, raspberry, wild hedgerow, wet stone and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, leaning more toward red fruit than black, well balanced with a fine line of acidity and a grainy, structured finish. Classic Chambertin here and a great success considering the extent ...

91-93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champonnet 1er Cru is completely de-stemmed and matures in around 60% new oak. It has a very well defined bouquet with more red than black fruit, hints of lavender and pot pourri, vigorous and open. The palate is very well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, quite sappy in the mouth with a juicy and expressive finish. There is a sense of joie-de-vivre in this wine already and I hope that will be translated into bottle.(NM)" (01/2019) 90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Pungent aromas are com...
