Grand Vin de Château Latour

2010 / 750 ml.

Item #: 35714

RP100100 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Feb 2013
One of the perfect wines of the vintage, Frederic Engerer challenged me when I tasted the 2010 Latour at the estate, asking, “If you rate the 2009 one hundred, then how can this not be higher?” Well, the scoring system stops at 100, (and has for 34 years), and will continue for as long as I continue to write about wine. Nevertheless, this blend of 90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.5% Merlot, and .5% Petit Verdot hit 14.4% natural alcohol and represents a tiny 36% of their entire production. The pH is about 3.6, which is normal compared to the 3.8 pH of the 2009, that wine being slightly lower in alcohol, hence the combination that makes it more flamboyant and accessible. The 2010 is a liquid skyscraper in the mouth, building layers upon layers of extravagant, if not over-the-top richness with its hints of subtle charcoal, truffle, blackberry, cassis, espresso and notes of toast and graphite. Full-bodied, with wonderfully sweet tannin, it is a mind-boggling, prodigious achievement that should hit its prime in about 15 years, and last for 50 to 100.

Unbelievably pure, with distilled cassis and plum fruit that cuts a very precise path, while embers of anise, violet and black cherry confiture form a gorgeous backdrop. A bedrock of graphite structure should help this outlive other 2010s. Powerful, sleek and incredibly long. Not perfect, but very close. Best from 2020 through 2050.
WE9999 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2013
Stern, almost severe initially, this great wine takes time to show its immense fruit power. Black currant and blackberry notes are packed into the wine, along with an impressive array of spices from new wood that gives a more exotic element. At the end, though, it has a fine, structured sense of proportion. Obviously for aging over decades, so don’t drink before 2022.
ST96+96+? pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jul/Aug 2013
Dark ruby-red. Brooding nose hints at plum, cassis, brown spices and cedary oak. Sweet, fresh and highly concentrated, with brisk, intense cabernet sauvignon-dominated flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, cedar and cocoa powder. Vibrant acidity gives this wine terrific lift and energy, but it's currently hard as nails. Finishes impressively long, with noble tannins and palate-staining concentration; nutmeg and licorice nuances emerge slowly with aeration. A knockout, but forget about it in your cellar for another 15 years. While I think the 2009 Latour has a magic spicy charm, the 2010 is more in keeping with this great estate’s DNA.

Champagne André Clouet Grande Réserve Brut

Grand Cru 100% Bouzy
NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 46366

VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2011
The NV Brut Grande Réserve emerges from the glass with layers of hazelnut, pear, spice and dried flower aromas. This rich, creamy wine impresses for its balance and sheer richness. I loved it. This is Lot L06.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2011
Unfortunately I was only able to taste one new release from Andre Clouet this year. The NV Brut Grande Reserve emerges from the glass with layers of hazelnut, pear, spice and dried flower aromas. This rich, creamy wine impresses for its balance and sheer richness. I loved it. This is Lot L06. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2014.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2019
The latest release of André Clouet’s NV Brut Grand Réserve Grand Cru is showing well, exhibiting a nicely integrated bouquet of red apple, ripe citrus fruit, honeycomb and blanched almonds, followed by a medium to full-bodied, enveloping palate with a fine mousse, ripe but racy acids and an elegant, understated profile, concluding with a well-defined finish. This is a stylish, harmonious wine that makes for a fine introduction to the Clouet portfolio.

ST9292 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
Vivid orange-pink. Aromas and flavors of ripe red berries, candied rose and toasty lees. Fleshy but nervy and focused, with strong mineral cut and hints of bitter herbs on the very long, energetic finish. Smoothly blends richness and vivacity, making it extremely flexible with food or without.

The NV Brut Rosé floats on the palate with delicate, expressive fruit. An ethereal wine, Clouet’s Rosé is made in a light to medium-bodied style perfect for drinking before a meal. Clean, chalky notes frame the nuanced finish. This release is based on 2010 and was disgorged on January 8, 2013.

Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry Riesling

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 35285

WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2022
This wine is consistently one of the best values in the world, and the latest vintage does not disappoint. The aromas enchant, with notes of Nestea Lemon Iced Tea, peach, citrus, lime leaf and honeysuckle. Dry, straight-down-the fairway lime and other citrus flavors follow. The balance is impressive. (Sean P. Sullivan)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2022
Lithe and pretty, with floral grapefruit and lime flavors that finish on a refreshing note. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. (Tim Fish)
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/22
Ste. Michelle’s Dry Riesling is a benchmark for the category, lean with scents of lemon and a hint of peach, flavors that are juicy and light, with refreshing acidity for an afternoon sip.

Hermann J. Wiemer Dry Riesling

2022 / 750 ml.

Item #: 41053

WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2024
A rich, heady bottling, this exudes crème brûlée, lemon sorbet and mushroom broth. On the palate there’s what feels like a hint of residual sugar, despite the dry label, and it’s a touch volatile, with the acetone notes getting jumbled up with the citrus ones. There’s a mushroomy tinge to the finish. (Christina Pickard)

WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2022
Cabernet Sauvignon plus a small percentage of Merlot and Syrah adds up to a big “bang for the buck” experience. Black-cherry, dark-chocolate and orange aromas are flanked by wee bits of well-worn leather and roasted red bell pepper. The wine has grippy tannins and soft acidity to match up with gobs of blackcap-raspberry and blueberry flavors. Little touches of cedar and mocha powder add interest. (Michael Alberty)
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/22
Dark and woolly with black-cherry and tobacco flavors and modest wood notes, this is generous and complex for its price.

Ravines Cabernet Franc

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 46761

WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2024
There are some charred meat and mushroom undertones to this plump brambly berried Seneca Lake Cab Franc, with a dried herbal edge. Lovely plump cherry fruit concentration balances the tart acidity and austere, sappy tannins on this midweight red that’s perfect for in-between-season sipping. (Christina Pickard)

RP100100 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Aug 2003
Rutherglen is ground zero for one of Australia’s great treasures, old fortified Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle), and Buller’s offerings are brilliant examples of these wines. The Calliope Rare Muscat boasts a deep, dark amber color as well as layers of flavor and constantly changing aromatics of brown sugar, fig, molasses, and Lord knows what else. It is an extraordinary beverage. These Australian treasures are fabulous to drink at the end of a meal. Moreover, once opened, they will hold for several weeks, sometimes longer.
RP9999 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2007
The N.V. Calliope Muscat is dark amber-colored with aromas, and flavors of figs, dates, prunes, and maple syrup. The wine is amazingly fresh and well-defined with a finish that goes on and on.
RP9999 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2002
Buller, who has long been a supplier of fortified wines to the big Yalumba Company, has begun bottling under his own label, and, luckily for Americans, they have been picked up by a USA importer. The Tokay Calliope and Muscat Calliope are pure perfection. Both are amber-colored nectars with extraordinary perfumes, incredible richness, and finishes that linger on the palate, seemingly forever. At $50, they are a steal. The average age for the Calliope offerings is around 50 years of age. Australia continues to be a treasure trove for fortified, after-dinner wines. Once bottled, they do not change, and often age up to a decade where well stored. After opening, most will last for a week. This is one of the top wine discoveries of this year’s tastings. Many consumers are going to be overjoyed with these offerings.
WE9898 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2007
This is dark, almost black in color at the center, with greening evident at the rim. Syrupy, intense aromas of coffee and dark chocolate make an immediate impact on the nose, followed by syrupy, intense flavors of coffee and molasses. There’s mind-boggling concentration here, but just enough acidity to provide a sense of balance. Still, it’s hard to imagine drinking more than a couple of ounces of this at a time.
RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Oct 2004
The Calliope Rare Muscat’s light amber color is followed by an intoxicating fragrance that includes scents of prunes, figs, maple syrup, molasses, and gobs of fruit. The glycerin is extraordinary, the acid level provides freshness and definition, and the finish lasts over a minute.

ST94+94+ pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2006
Full yellow. Captivating aromas of orange peel, minerals and honey, with sweaty suggestions of vineyard peach and cumin. Wonderfully bracing and precise, with great penetration and cut to its flavors of mandarin orange, powdered stone and graphite. The tactile finish suggests dusty dry extract more than it does tannins. A very Germanic style of late-harvest wine, with an exhilarating purity to its botrytis and an impression of strong tartaric acidity. This is 9% alcohol, with 97 grams of residual sugar.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2006
Fresh, even racy, with grapefruit, lemon and honey aromas and flavors matched to an elegant profile. Still tightly wound, with a vivid structure. Needs time to open and gain complexity. Best from 2009 through 2020. 300 cases made.

Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2005 / 750 ml.

Item #: 26038

SP95+95–100 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2006
An amazing barrel sample. Rich and plush, with a concentrated mix of ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry flavors that are tightly focused and persistent, with a long, detailed finish. Caressing texture.
VN95+95+ pts. - Vinous - May 2017
Bright, full red-ruby. Delightfully floral and cool on the nose following the 2004, offering good mineral lift to the aromas of red berries, licorice and rose petal. Clearly tighter than the ’04, in a much more classic style but still youthfully imploded, showing a subtle salinity to its redcurrant and raspberry flavors. There’s compelling sweetness here but a less glyceral texture than some of the richest vintages. Boasts outstanding structure for long-term aging, though, finishing very young, savory and long, with firm tannic spine and hints of hoisin sauce and spices.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2008
Elegant and stylish, with ripe, vivid black cherry, currant, wild berry and black olive flavors that gain depth and vibrancy, picking up body and complexity and ending with a long, lingering finish that keeps repeating the fruit and cedary oak themes. Best from 2011 through 2017.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2015
Certainly a somewhat mythical estate, planted by Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer and owned by Don Bryant of St. Louis, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is an outstanding wine, but not in the league of some of their classics that have been produced. For example, the 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2007, 2010 and more recent vintages, 2012 and 2013 are all superior to this 2005. Somewhat loosely knit for Bryant, this wine has relatively lofty alcohol and seems to be close to full maturity. ) Lots of blackberry and cassis fruit as well as a touch of kirsch are present in this soft, full-bodied, sexy wine, which still has a rather inky garnet/purple color. It doesn’t have the complexity of the greatest vintages of Bryant, but it’s delicious, and certainly on its own merits, worthy of any serious connoisseurs attention. Drink it now and over the next 12–15 years.
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2007
The 2005 continues to exhibit a European-styled finesse, elegance, and a certain austerity. The wine also shows considerable new oak, lots of acidity, which is almost atypical for this vineyard site, and a deep ruby/purple color with notes of cedar, bay leaf, cigar box, and copious quantities of black currant liqueur. It is a streamlined, classic, but slightly austere style for Bryant. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2025.

RP97+97+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Dec 2011
As I wrote last year, the 2009 Hermitage La Chapelle is easily the greatest, most profound La Chapelle since the 1990. Most of this cuvee comes from Le Meal and Les Bessards vineyards, with a touch of Les Roucoules fruit in the blend. It is an opaque purple-colored wine with enormous concentration in addition to an extraordinary bouquet of graphite, creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, beef blood and a touch of smoked game. Boasting phenomenal intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and 50 years of longevity, the only thing that could possibly hold it back is that most consumers should plan on laying it away for 8–10 years.
ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Mar/Apr 2012
Opaque purple. Complex, highly fragrant aromas of candied dark fruits, cola, incense and violet, with bright mineral and spice nuances adding lift and energy. Stains the palate with deep blackberry and boysenberry flavors that expand and gain sweetness with aeration. Refuses to let up on the finish, which leaves peppery spice and floral pastille notes behind.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2012
This is packed and well-rendered, with notes of fig, boysenberry confiture and ganache at the core and powerful structure pushing from behind. Shows plenty of roasted tobacco and vanilla bean on the slightly stolid finish, but there’s a density and brooding length here that sets it apart form the pack. Best from 2017 through 2032. 250 cases imported.
ST94+94–96 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jan/Feb 2011
Glass-staining purple. Intense, assertively perfumed aromas of blueberry preserves, cherry, licorice and violet, with a strong incense quality. Impressively deep and spicy, offering floral-accented dark berry flavors that show superb clarity and a lively mineral quality. Tangy acidity adds lift and cut to an endless, sappy finish. This wine’s blend of richness and energy is outstanding.
