Tenuta Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 3L
Tenuta Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 3L
Price: $209.99
Special Price: $159.99

Rich, expressive, and multi-layered, the ’16 Chianti Classico Riserva Tignanello radiates its excellent vintage in its transparency, energy and complexity. Peppery spices, melted chocolate, crushed river rocks, pressed violet petals, and a touch of espresso frame this wine’s sappy blue and snappy red fruits. On the palate, this ruby hued wine is a delectable confluence of contrasts--savory underpinnings complement sweet fruits, nervy acidity balances copious dry extracts, while fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks and provide elegant structure. Chianti Classico doesn’t get much better than this Antinori bottling! A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes derive from Antinori’s Tenuta Tignanello estate in the Chianti Classico production zone. The grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about ten days; the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak, and it ages for 14 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak, followed by a year in bottle. more info

Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres 2017 3L
Price: $299.00
Special Price: $224.99

The product of a classic, sunny growing season, this ’17 Les Enseignères bursts from the glass in a shower of white stone fruits, quince, and pear that are framed with lime zest, acacia blossoms, and a touch of smoky minerals. This expressive wine relishes its tensions between its kinetic acidity and its dry extract, its sweet fruits and its savory minerality, and its nice weightiness and its inner lift. Although a village-level wine, Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères has always been an insider’s wine because it lies directly beneath the grand cru Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and shares much of the same power, richness and style at a fraction of the price. Deriving from the estate’s 2.5-acre clay and limestone Les Enseignères plot with 65-year-old vines, this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, mostly new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. While this wine can be enjoyed early, this Les Enseignères will only become more beautiful given some time in the cellar. more info

Please Call (212) 473-2323 to Order

A remarkable, complex, and seductive wine, the ’17 St Aubin Murgers Dents de Chiens frames its juicy peaches and tantalizing pears with powerful aromas of crushed stones, pressed white flowers, warm butterscotch, and a touch of fresh loam. Chavy-Chouet’s St Aubin Murgers Dents de Chiens plot was forest until 1986, and the 2017 bottling shows how much can be accomplished in just a few decades. This wine’s effortless balance between its sweet fruits and its saline minerality, its acidic elegance, and its resonant finish are riveting. While you can drink this wine upon release, it has the stuffing to age for a decade, likely longer. Deriving from a pebbly, limestone-rich scant half-acre of 30-year-old vines located near the renowned Montrachet Grand Cru appellation, this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, 20% new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. more info

Ornellaia 2017 Ornellaia 3L
Price: $1,399.99
Special Price: $1,199.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Bam, boom, pow – there is a richness and approachability here that surpasses that of 2015 and punches you in the nose right from the pull of the cork. Make no mistake, this is the product of the warm and radiant “Solare” vintage. The signature Ornellaia aromatics are present, but what stands out is the awesome density of fruit and concentration here. The lushness from the warm fruit cannot be denied as it presents a creamy texture that makes it hard not to enjoy this wine now. But there is plenty under the hood here, and the coastal influence and minerality make their presence known with underlying energy. You can expect nuances of blackberries, plum, cassis, olives, grilled herbs, tobacco, leather, smoke, tar and minerality. It is one seductive Super Tuscan that can please fans of both Napa and Graves, while remaining coastal Tuscany.” more info

Warm baking spices, crushed river rocks, lemon peel, and white flowers frame the orchard fruits in this broad-shouldered and beautifully textured ’11 Morey-St-Denis Clos des Monts Luisants. 2011 saw the centennial of Domaine Ponsot’s exceptional Aligoté Clos des Monts vineyard; the ’11 Morey-St-Denis Blanc Clos des Monts Luisants is a towering tribute to this extraordinary monopole. This wine slides across the palate with the texture of silk brocade, energized by its sturdy mineral core, and it builds to a balanced, lingering finish that clings to the palate, satisfyingly. Deriving from a 2.5-acre monopole of rare hundred-year-old Aligoté vines situated at the peak of the slope, the grapes for this wine ferment in open, temperature-controlled vats, and the wine ages in oak, almost always used, for two years. more info

2014 saw a wet, chilly, challenging growing year in Piemonte, but Giacosa’s ‘14 Barbaresco Asili Riserva shows that great winemakers can make great--even iconic--wines in “off” vintages. Extraordinarily perfumed, the ’14 Barbaresco Asili Riserva wafts with kaleidoscopic scents: juicy red fruits, brambly berries, freshly tilled loam, crushed violet petals, and sprinklings of herbs, crushed rocks and baking spices. The wine’s palate echoes this mesmerizing complexity, shifting with every moment to reveal a progression of intense, detailed notes. Fine-grained yet substantial tannins, solid acidity, and a linear structure argue for aging, but in time, this Barbaresco Riserva will be astonishing.  The cru Barbaresco Asili comes from the first vines Bruno Giacosa purchased in this region; however, beginning in 2007, Giacosa incorporated his parcel known as Rabaja into his Asili bottling, and this rich, opulent, and complex expression has grown yet more layered and nuanced. In 2014, the grapes for Barbaresco Asili Riserva macerated in stainless steel for about two weeks, and the wine aged for 32 months in barrel, followed by about 18 months in bottle. more info

Dark, juicy red and blue fruits rest in a framework of crushed lavender and roses, sun-warmed earth, wet river rocks, baking spices and cherry cordial in the stellar ’13 Costa Russi. Terrifically structured, this wine shows firm, sophisticated tannins offset by energetic acidity; deceptively powerful, this wine builds to a lingering, satisfying crescendo. The 11-acre Costa Russi vineyard, which sits alongside Sorì Tildìn in Roncagliette, takes its name from the word “costa,” which is the side of a hill that faces the sun and “Russi,” the name of the vineyard’s former owners. A mono-varietal Nebbiolo since 2013, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; then the wine ages in a year each of barrique and botti before bottling. more info
