Domaine des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Tuvilains

Was $104.99


Tuvilains is a recent addition to the lineup at the estate. It sits much further south and just below Pertuisots on the slope. The dense clay in the soil is rich in iron oxide and makes sturdy structured wines. This is the yardstick for extraction levels these days at the domaine. The 2018 is certainly squared-shouldered in its mouthfeel but once again it shows plenty of pure and bright red fruit and the finish shows a lovely mineral coolness. This may take a couple of years to really come together but will be delicious with a little time in a decanter and should age very well. Sam Ehrlich

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Coucherias

Was $53.99

Beaune 1er Cru "Les Coucherias" is high on the slope on the site of an old quarry and much of the sub-soil is limestone tailings, permitting root penetration and drainage, with a topsoil of mixed clay and limestone "marnes blanches." In biodynamic agriculture since 1979, the vineyard is a south-facing semi-circle—a very warm spot.The 2018 has a bright bronze/gold color and lovley aromas or ripe white peach and pear with exotic citrus and herbal notes. The ripe, deep palate palate shows stone,  apricot, pear and almond flavors with lovely density and a firm core of minerality that lingers in the very long finish. Delicious now, showing the lush fruit of 2018, it should cellar beautifully as well. David Lillie

Domaine Des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes

Was $114.99


If there were a yearbook award for "Most Improved" this wine would get it. In the early days Bressandes was a challenge. Even in an excellent vintage like 2010, it seemed a struggle to develop enough material during fermentation. But through quite a lot of rehabilitative work in the vineyard and slow replacement of inferior vine material this has developed into a powerhouse. The fruit is always generous but the thin soil on a high steep slope lends a mineral intensity to the wine that is very compelling. The 2017 was a standout in a vintage chock full of terrific wines.

Domaine des Croix 2018 Corton Grand Cru Greves

Was $214.99


This parcel on the Grand Cru hill of Corton was acquired in 2009 as part of a multi-domaine sale (the Chambertin went to Rousseau). Greves sits just over halfway up the east face of Corton, adjacent to Louis Latour's Chateau Grancey  and just below the legendary Clos du Roi. This is real Corton, always with terrific power and mineral intensity.

Chantal Lescure 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Les Bertins

Was $64.99


From organically farmed old massale-selection vines with small grapes, in Les Bertins in the southern part of Pommard, close to Volnay on soils of brown clay over hard limestone and limestone debris. Les Bertins has a greater amount of limestone than other Pommard premier crus, and the wines are sometimes a bit lighter and more "Volnay-like" in character. This shows the classic boldness of Pommard and the fresh ripeness of the 2018 vintage with aromas of wild rose, black raspberry, cherry liqueur and spice. The medium weight palate is dense with cooling minerality and mouth coating, silky tannins framed with ripe red cherry and macerated raspberry, finishing with long, delicate notes of spice, rose hips, and black tea leaf. This is quite delicious as a young wine but will obviously benefit from five years of cellaring, drink until 2035.

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes

Jean-Claude Rateau has a large parcel in the 1er Cru Les Bressandes on a steep slope facing east with pebbly clay/limestone soils, conducted in biodynamic farming since 1979. The soil is warm and well-drained giving ripe, structured wines. There is a 21-day cuvaison with manual cap-punching followed by 18 months in old barrels.Even with the minimal extraction practiced at the estate, the 2018 Bressandes shows a dense red/black color and lush aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry, quite deep with sous-bois, violet, graphite and citrus. The palate is dense, elegant and chalky with blackberry, earth, bitter chocolate and minerals with terrific length of black fruits, earth and juicy acidity. Hints of iron, blood and roast meat indicate a very interesting aging potential for this wine. Given the weight and ripeness of the vintage, the wine still seems balanced and frames the copious fruit in ample acidity and tannin. This is a beautiful wine that will give great pleasure in its youth and should be a superb mature wine as well, with a long life ahead of it...  David Lillie

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Reversées

Was $54.99


From vines grown in the calcareous clay soils of Les Reversées premier cru toward the bottom of the hill in the center of the slope by Les Teurons. This is a bit more delicate and lower in alcohol than Rateau's "Bressandes" but still quite deep and generous in 2018 showing ripe  black cherry, boysenberry, notes of cherry pit and earth on the nose. The palate is quite dense but still with nice brightness with ripe black fruits, hints of iodine and iron and  soil beneath supple structure. Succulent acidity and savory mineral notes offset the ripeness and lend energy and drive on a rich, palate-coating finish which is very long with elegant black raspberry and red currant fruit.  The purity of fruit and earth notes are finely balanced - this is an excellent Burgundy for the mid-term. A fine pairing with braised chicken thighs with mustard, tarragon, and shallots. A great value from the pioneer of biodynamic Burgundy!

Chantal Lescure 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Mombies

Was $59.99

 The lieu-dit "Les Mombies" has limestone clay soils washed down from higher on the slope, the vines average 40 years of age. The 2018 Les Mombies shows lovely freshness in this very ripe vintage with aromas of strawberry and cherry liqueur with hints of darker fruit and game. The fresh, chalky palate offers a melange of red fruits - raspberry, red currant, cherry - with good concentration over an earthy mineral core with fine fresh acidity and nice lift on the finish.  This will be fun drinking as a young wine due to the fresh, vibrrant fruit and ought to shine with 3-5 years in the cellar and beyond.  David Lillie
