Egly-Ouriet Brut Les Vignes de Vrigny NV
6 bottles available, $59 per bottle
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The terrific NV Champagne Les Vignes de Vrigny is a rich, powerful, full-bodied yet incredibly elegant effort that offers a rare mix of both richness and freshness. Plenty of orchard fruits, some stone minerality, a vibrant, seamless mousse, and a crisp finish all make for a viscerally thrilling Champagne that I’m sure will keep for at least another decade. This cuvée is all Pinot Meunier and it shows in the depth and richness on the palate."
Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition NV
30 bottles available, $65 per bottle
93 points Vinous: "Egly's NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is another stellar wine in this range. Rich Pinot fruit and a hint of oak give the Brut a decidedly exotic aromatic profile that follows through to the palate. Sweet wild flowers, spice, brioche, red plum and kirsch all open up in the glass. The Brut Grand Cru deftly balances a rich expression of Ambonnay fruit with notable vibrancy and freshness, which makes for an absolutely compelling and enticing NV Champagne. Egly gave the Brut Tradition 48 months on the lees, which is on the long side for a Champagne in its peer group."
Paul Bara Rose Special Club 2013
9 bottles available, $85 per bottle
93+ points Vinous: "The 2013 Brut Rosé Spécial Club is just gorgeous. Finely cut and sculpted in feel, with tons of energy, the 2013 dazzles with a combination of mineral-driven intensity and fruit richness that is simply compelling. All the elements meld together effortlessly in this deceptively mid-weight Champagne. The 2013 is not all obvious, and it is a bit tight today, but it is also supremely delicious.”
Jacquesson Brut Rose Dizy Terres Rouges 2011
9 bottles available, $110 per bottle
92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Extra-Brut Rosé Dizy-Terres Rouges is gorgeous. Aromatic and light on its feet, the 2011 is decidedly gracious and delicate in feel, and yet all the elements are nicely balanced. My only real critique of the 2011 is that it lacks mid-palate depth. At the same time, Jacquesson seems to have avoided the green notes that plague so many wines in this vintage.”
Fevre Chablis Montee de Tonnerre 2017
3 bottles available, $70 per bottle
95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru shows why this site is so highly regarded. Even with all of the challenges of the growing season, all of the personality of this 1er Cru comes through loud and clear. Pale in color yet remarkably deep, the 2017 offers up a compelling mélange of citrus and orchard fruits perked up by bright acids and striking floral overtones. Weightless yet powerful, with explosive energy and superb balance, the 2017 Clos is fabulous. Readers who can find it should not hesitate.”
Fevre Chablis Bougros Cote de Bouguerots 2013
6 bottles available, $90 per bottle
94 points Burghound: "This is perennially one of my favorite wines and one that I buy virtually every vintage. The 2013 version displays a deft touch of oak that again is sufficiently subtle as to allow the ripe and very fresh white and yellow orchard fruit, sea breeze and iodine scents to shine. There is excellent punch as well as fine detail to the almost aggressively mineral-driven flavors that possess good power but also a lovely sense of refinement on the wonderfully long and impeccably well-balanced finish. Exquisite.”
Marc Colin St. Aubin Les Combes 2017
4 bottles available, $55 per bottle
(91-93) points Vinous: "The 2017 Saint-Aubin les Combes 1er Cru has a relatively strict bouquet compared to its sibling Premier Crus with light estuarine scents, shucked oyster shell and a touch of blackcurrant leaf. The palate is fresh and quite intense on the entry. I love the depth and vigour of this wine, quite voluminous in the mouth with a delicate touch of ginger towards the finish. Superb.”
Marc Colin St. Aubin Le Charmois 2017
9 bottles available, $55 per bottle
(92-94) points Vinous: "The 2017 Saint-Aubin Le Charmois 1er Cru matures in 20% new oak, has a slightly more introspective but quite compelling bouquet with dried honey, hazelnut and light oyster shell aromas that just need some coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity, very harmonious with impressive depth. There is vigour and animation about this Premier Cru with a killer, razor-sharp finish that lingers in the mouth. Magnificent.”
Joseph Colin St. Aubin Clos des Meix 2017
6 bottles available, $55 per bottle
92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Saint-Aubin Clos des Meix 1er Cru has a comparatively reserved bouquet, demanding a bit of coaxing from the glass; hints of shucked oyster shell and cockle sheds emerge with time. The palate is fresh on the entry and more immediate than the nose, displaying lovely balance and well-judged acidity. Red cherry notes emerge toward a finish that, if you closed your eyes, you might misconstrue as a light red! Lovely.”
Joseph Colin St. Aubin Sous Roche Dumay 2017
3 bottles available, $55 per bottle
93 points Vinous: “The 2017 Saint-Aubin Sous Roche Dumay 1er Cru offers fragrant yellow flower and honeysuckle aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is punchy and vivacious on the entry, more attacking than the Clos des Meix, with lip-smacking salinity on the persistent finish. Yet another impressive and quite intellectual offering from Joseph Colin.”
