In 2006, Coeur de Cuvée is in peak form. Peter Liem writes, "The 2006 is a superb example of what Laurent Champs can achieve with this wine." The 2006 is possessed of a silken, refined majesty cut through with racy tension.

The 1er Cru Vaucrains is one of the gems in the Chevillon stable. It is sourced from a tiny 1.5ha section of eighty-year-old vines. This is the most powerful, wild and mineral wine of Chevillon. It may lack some of Les Cailles' and Les St. Georges' refinement, but it can definitely hang in terms of complexity and ageworthiness.

The low yields produced a Von der Fels of beautifully sleek mineral concentration and crazy, precise length. The racy 2013 acidity finds its perfect complement in the extra stuffing from the low yields.

The 1990 is particularly noteworthy because Drouhin nailed the vintage. Drouhin's 90s stand out with many of Burgundy's legendary producers. Drouhin's jewel-box style married perfectly with the vintage's ripeness. Drouhin produced some of the most elegant examples of the vintage. The result is a Chambolle 1er Cru of really impressive finesse, clarity and transparency along with a quiet, building intensity.

Métras is always intense; he's serious about viniculture and picks late. But what stands out in the wines is their finesse, their deliciousness and how easy it is to empty a glass.

Both bottles represent some of the greatest values in Red Burgundy that we know. They are legendary for how well they age. As with so many 2012s, there's simply much less wine than we're accustomed to.

In Dauvissat's hands, Forest assumes an aristocratic posture steeped in a saline, oceanic minerality, chalk and yellow and green fruits. It's a statuesque wine that ages beautifully.  A couple of years ago we opened an '85 Dauvissat Forest that was beautifully mineral and fresh.

In 2010, Bricco Boschis really shines in all its density and aromatics. The 2010 manages to show a saturating depth with complex top notes of flowers, spice and dark fruits. The hallmark energy and transparency of 2010 is on bold display.

In 2012, this site shines in all its soil-inflected glory. The combination of intense, explosively stony minerality with a walk-on-tiptoe finesse underlines just how special this site is. The sense of completeness, fineness and terroir saturation is really impressive.
