Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2002 Brut La Grande Annee is marvelous. The 2002 is an understated Grande Annee that caresses the palate with layers of effortless, weightless fruit.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "The minerality and stoniness really comes through on the nose of this Rieussec, more than the 2007.

Cellar/Tasting Notes JS: "This is very concentrated with dried pineapple, honey and caramel. Full-bodied and superdense. Like honey. Massive. This is fantastic. From the former head and part owner of Yquem."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Another showstopper, the 2010 Meursault Genevrieres is uncommonly rich and voluptuous for Genevrieres. Deep, resonant layers of fruit nearly manage to bury the wine-s considerable minerality. The 2010 is a totally intense, seamless Meursault with no hard edges and exceptional balance. Today it is..
