07.30.2015 Current Specials: "Wonderful Classiness" - 2004 Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva I've been a huge fan of Costanti for some time. However, my enthusiasm for the estate was cemented last year when I drank an absolutely gorgeous 1990. Costanti makes real deal Brunellos. They need time, but when they hit their stride, beautiful things happen. The style of...

07.29.2015 Current Specials: 2011 Ferrando Carema Etichetta Bianca Carema is a mountain wine. They are wines with snap and tension. In these northern reaches, a warm vintage can add a fascinating dimension to the wine. That's the story with the 2011, along with plenty of stony, elegant verve.

07.29.2015 Current Specials: "Lovely stuff" - 2004 Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Chateau des Ducs There are times when I can imagine drinking nothing besides Lafarge.

07.27.2015 Current Specials: Selosse Substance and Rose Selosse is well known for producing absolutely individual expressions of Champagne. For me, these two are the most extreme of the range - and some of the most compelling. Substance is a mind-bending bottle. It's profoundly deep, boasting an epic complexity. Burgundian is...

It's one of the best sparklers outside of Champagne.We recently opened a bottle of the 2011 and really enjoyed it. As good as it was on release, it has blossomed with some additional time in bottle.
