01.29.2015 Current Specials: Endlessly Mysterious: 2008 Chateau Simone Palette Blanc Château Simone Blanc is very much a wine about texture. There's a wildly complex layering of minerals, herbs, pine resin and various stone fruits, but these are all carried by the wine's regal texture. If you think about some combination of Bordeaux Blanc and Hermitage Blanc...

01.28.2015 Current Specials: "One of the great producers of Italy's old guard" - 2010 Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino Salvioni nails this understated, aromatically complex style: they are Brunello full of purity and grace. Their Brunellos offer a medley of incense, spice and roses, all beautifully integrated with red fruits and minerals. Needless to say, 2010 played right into Salvioni's...

01.27.2015 Current Specials: I'll Drink to That! #238: Bertrand Gautherot of Vouette et SorbĂ©e 2010 is a vintage where the most dedicated growers really distanced themselves from the pack. Anyone who has visited Gautherot has mentioned how beautifully the vineyards are maintained. When you hear him talk during the interview, it's obvious that his heart is in the vineyard. 

01.27.2015 Current Specials: Chevillon Steal: 2011 Chevillon Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Vaucrains The 1er Cru Vaucrains is one of the stars in Chevillon's stable. The eighty-year-old vines produce an especially wild, powerful and emphatically mineral expression of Pinot. 

01.26.2015 Current Specials: Riesling at its Most Mysterious and Heartfelt: 1990 Becker Walkenberg Spatlese Trocken Becker's Rieslings represent some of the most challenging, singular and ultimately compelling expressions of the grape. The fact that old examples are available with perfect provenance and at very fair pricing only sweetens the deal.

01.25.2015 Current Specials: Under-The-Radar Hermitage Traditionalist: 2009 Faurie Hermitage - Greffieux/Bessards & Bessards/Meal These are some of the purest and most beautiful renditions of Hermitage. There is no grander, more regal expression of Syrah than Hermitage. Faurie captures Hermitage's elegance and complexity with such detail and in such an honest fashion.

01.24.2015 Current Specials: "One of Beaujolais's major as well as most consistent talents"-2013 Bouland Morgon: Corcelette and Delys Bouland's style is deep and muscular with staining intensity. It carries this with an interesting combination of rusticity and flash.  All of this is wrapped around a stern core of granite minerality that boldly announces itself from start to finish. 

01.23.2015 Current Specials: "Excellent precision and verve" - 2008 Fourrier Gevrey Clos St.Jacques The marriage between the mineral-laden, very classic 2008 vintage and Fourrier was close to ideal. As you could guess, it reaches a high point in the Clos St. Jacques. Burghound focuses on the, "ultra pure middle weight flavors that possess excellent precision and verve...
