Intense, Precise William Fèvre 2012 Chablis, Vintage Vega-Sicilia and José Dhondt Splits!
August 6, 2014 
A Note from Sergio

Life is full of compromises. The store is out of branzino so we get the trout; the movie we want to see isn't playing near us, so we see our second choice; the ideal jacket is at the drycleaner's, so we change our suit. Every day, we settle on options that aren't exactly everything we want, and maybe that's a good thing. It teaches us that we're not the center of the world, and that, in the grand cosmic scheme, our wants are no more important than the buzzing of a gnat. 

But it's really nice to get what you want, sometimes. It's especially nice when everything you want is in a bottle of wine. It's very rare for a wine to have it all: intensity, delineation, accessibility, age-worthiness, personality, and that sheer wow factor that makes you think about it days--even years--after you've finished the bottle. But the 2012 William Fèvre Chablis seem to have it all, to wrap it all up and tie it with a mineral bow, and place it all in the glass before you. 2012 was an amazing year for Burgundy, but it was spectacular for Chablis. Today's 2012 Chablis from William Fèvre are out of this world. There's not a compromise in the lot, and they'll only leave you wanting more. 

Along with these spectacular 2012 releases, I'm very proud to present a list of vintage Vega-Sicilia wines, some dating back to 1922. These collector wines are astounding bottlings, all with pristine provenance, and each one is a master class in vintage wine, in winemaking and in Spanish wine. I can't heap enough praise on the experience of drinking a vintage Vega-Sicilia Unico or Reserva Especial. It is, as Galileo said of wine, like drinking sunlight held together by water. 

Finally, I'm delighted to present special pricing on José Dhondt Blanc de Blancs half bottles, so you can celebrate it all. Because life is good, and we should always honor what we have--with friends, family and everyone we love.
