Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 2010 375ml
Price: $249.00

Supple, elegant and profoundly mineral, the ’10 d’Yquem reflects its dry, cool growing year in its sublime freshness and its terrific aromatics. Luscious stone and tropical fruits, crushed herbs, citrus zest, brown baking spices and steely notes dance in this wine’s entrancing nose. Sweet but never cloying, this wine suffuses the palate with keenly delineated kaleidoscopic flavors and lingers on its seamless, energetic finish. Château d'Yquem’s skilled pickers hand-select the vines’ fully botrytized fruit, and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine. Vintage after vintage, Château d'Yquem continues to set the bar not merely for Sauternes, but for fine dessert wines around the world. more info

Vincent Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016 750ml
Price: $275.00

Spicy, structured, and powerful, Vincent Girardin’s ’16 Corton-Charlemagne is a stunner. Succulent stone fruits, crisp orchard fruits and zesty citrus fruits wrap around an alluring mineral core; warm baking spices, a nice salinity, and touches of earth and herbs burble below. For all its intensity, this nimble wine is nicely muscled, and it shows terrific focus as it glides across the palate to a commanding, mineral-laden finish. Enjoyable now, this Corton-Charlemagne will be even better in five to ten years. Deriving from three separate plots on the Aloxe-Corton side of the hill that sport fifty-year-old vines biodynamically grown in clay and limestone-rich soils, grapes ferment with natural yeasts in tank, and the wine ages for 18 months in French oak barrels, one-third new; the wine is blended and finishes in tank before being fined, filtered and bottled. more info

Château d'Yquem’s skilled pickers hand-select the vines’ fully botrytized fruit, and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine. Vintage after vintage, Château d'Yquem continues to set the bar not merely for Sauternes, but for fine dessert wines around the world. more info
