Barolo from the Big Cellar, M - Z

Some more treasures from the Big Cellar, including an extensive group of the exceptional old wines from Oddero. We've tasted these many times over the past 10 years, and they deserve your full attention.

Aside from the sale of Vietti (to an American convenience store magnate), the big land news in Barolo this year was the sale of most of the Arione vineyard to Giacomo (Roberto) Conterno. It was a logical move on Conterno's part, as Arione is contiguous with Cascina Francia. The seller was Gigi Rosso, who owned almost all of the vineyard. Here's another example of the wine merchant's lament: I've never tasted Gigi Rosso's wines, and I'm certainly curious about Arione. An insider, who asked to remain anonymous, said the wines were not profound but that they were good, and true to the vineyard. Jamie Wolff

Oddero, Fratelli 1964 Barolo

Oddero is one of just a handful of producers who made excellent wine in the past and who continue to do so now. Admittedly our opinion of their current vintages is biased, since we admire Oddero's fidelity to Barolo made in the traditional manner. Anyway, the old wines are great, and we're happy to have old vintages whenever we can.

Prunotto 1964 Barolo

Lovely nose of caramel, wet earth, tar, roses, rainwater and old barrel spice. The color is an octave lighter than the Produttori. Elegant and juicy with vivid cherry fruit and a speherical sense on the palate. Great concentration and gritty tannins. Lovely acidity. Long finish. Totally mature wine. LF

Barolo from the Big Cellar A - G
More wine from our old friend, including a great range from one of our particular old-Barolo-favorites, Cordero di Montezemolo. To say nothing about other especially good wine from Barale, Cappellano, Ceretto... and Brezza... Canale, by the way, was the owner of a prime piece of Collina Rionda (now

Wintry Zins
Since Zinfandel's heyday in the mid-to-late 90s, the rich, bold, and hedonistic flavors have been dialed back; elegance, restraint, and balance have come to the forefront as a result of producers' focus on old-vine sites and better farming practices. This e-mail focuses on several Zinfandels we reco

A Collection of Older Tuscan Wine
We don’t usually get a chance to offer so many older Tuscan wines at one time, so this is exciting for us – and seasonally appropriate! BTW: old Chianti can be very good indeed, and is well worth considering.

Treasures of the Southern Rhone, Part 1, Featuring Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and More! Informal Rhône Dinner at Racines, Thurs 12/15...
As the weather gets colder, we'd like to feature some of our favorite wines from the Southern Rhone, which are such great accompaniments to hearty winter meals. We tend to prefer those wines made in a "traditional" style - from old vines with whole-cluster fermentations and aging in used barrels, fo

1971 Barolo and Barbaresco + BYOB at Franny's!
“This vintage shows all the splendor of Barolo. The best wines, and there are still many that continue to improve, are among the greatest we’ve tasted.” Sheldon Wasserman in Italy’s Noble Red Wines, (published in 1990). Our friend MH has been asking us to put together a dinner of 1971 Barolo and Ba

Barbaresco from the Big Cellar
These wines are from a favorite cellar in Piedmont. Having sampled many bottles from the same collection, we have no concerns about reminding you regarding our guarantee of each bottle. The classic line is that Barbaresco is easier drinking - and earlier drinking - than Barolo. Overall the soils, e

A Great Beaujolais: 2014 Cédric Chignard Julienas "Beauvernay," and Other Favorites!
We have always loved the Fleurie "les Moriers" from Domaine Chignard - always one of the most elegant Beaujolais, sometimes a bit austere in it's youth, but always beautifully balanced, with pure fruit and good density and length. A few years ago, Cédric began producing a new cuvéee from a vineyard

'Tis the Season for Teutonic Bubbles!
All current events aside, this is usually the time of year to celebrate. As we get closer to the holidays, it becomes instinctive to seek out special bottles for loved ones or ourselves; whether it's for holiday gifts, host gifts, end-of-year bonuses, or just a light at the end of a d

Rock Steady: The Terroir and Soul of Agrapart Champagne
At Chambers Street Wines we are blessed to work with an array of dedicated and talented growers. Careful work in the vines (mostly organic or biodynamic) and cellar (mostly non-interventionist) produce wines that, in addition to being delicious, seem to offer deeper dimensions of terroir expression

A Christmas Miracle: Two Single-Barrel Scotch Bottlings Selected By Chambers St. Wines
They’re here. Just in time for the holidays, we welcome two Chambers Street exclusives in the form of single-barrel Speyside single malts. This area in the northeast of Scotland around the River Moray is home to the most distilleries of any whisky-producing region in the country, and also produces s
