Super Wines, Super Sale

A lot of people came and they took away a lot of wine. Many of the wines sold out. We were able to get more of a few.
September 27, 2017

All were very popular especially the St. Cosme Cotes du Rhone. We were just able to get much more of them. Those we have left are:

White

2014 Matrot Bourgogne Blanc.

Was $26, Now $19.99, By the Case $16.99 - SAVE UP TO 34%

Thierry Matrot makes this at his classic Meursault classic estates. It is clean racy and pure like all his wines. Tasted twice, consistent notes: Aroma: apples, rather dense, spicy laden, sweet edge; Mouth: clean sweet bright acid rather dense, tight juicy clean; Very Good Plus  6 cases left

2015 Loosen Red Slate Riesling

Was $16, Now $12.99, By the Case $10.99 - SAVE UP TO 32%

This was a bargain at its original price. In the wonderful 2015 vintage it is dry and has the rich soft sweet mellowness that you get in the premium red slates around Urzig and Erden. It echoes Loosen's wonderful Erdener Pralat. This is super stuff at the price. Cases are coming home with me.

Color: Very pale; Aroma: Sweet intense and full red slatey fruit ; Mouth: Thick tight to start with rich fruit clean lower toned mineral good length; Very Good Plus 5 cases left

2013 Voerzio Barbera Correto

Was $45, Now $24.99, By the Case $21 - SAVE UP TO 54%

           Roberto Voerzio's Barberas are as serious as his famous Barolos. Like those the 2013 Voerzio Barbera d’Alba Ceretto combines modern and traditional styles. It is moderately rich and balanced with just the right blast of acidity. Critics call it “utterly delicious”.

Deep ruby.Combination of dark plum and cherry fruit with notes of pepper and hazelnut. The harmony of flavors, acidity, and spice is remarkable.Drinking now and for ten years. Very Good to Excellent 5 cases left

2014 St Cosme Les Deux Albions Cotes du Rhone

Was $24, Now $14.99, By the Case $12.75 - SAVE UP TO 47%

We have always liked the extra richness and depth of Ste.Cosme's premium two-vineyard Cotes du Rhone blend. We think the 2014 will be outstanding value based on Jeb Dunnock's Wine Advocate notes "surprising density and depth of fruit in the vintage. Blackberries, currants, licorice, garrigue and pepper all emerge from this medium-bodied, sweetly fruited, charming, forward and delicious beauty. It will drink well right out of the gate." 6 cases left

2012 Guigal Cote Rotie Ch. D'Ampuls

Was $185, Now $89 NET - SAVE 52%

           We rubbed our eyes at this wine at this price. Guigal's Ch d'Ampuis Cote Rotie stands just below their $600 La Las's in quality. The 2012 is excellent. Jeb Dunnock in the Wine Advocate "offers full-bodied richness and a broad, expansive style on the palate. Black raspberries, toasted spices, cured meats and licorice all emerge from this incredibly sexy, complex and nuanced Côte Rôtie, and my notes finish with “wish I could drink a glass.” Enjoy bottles anytime over the coming 15 or more years."

24 bottles left
