  2. 2005 Chateau Pavie Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

    2005 Chateau Pavie Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

    $500.94

    Size 750ML


    The Wine Advocate: 98+ points Now that the 2005 Pavie is in the bottle, I would place it, qualitatively, a notch below the prodigious 2000, and a few notches above the blockbuster 2003. There are 7,000 cases of this 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Disregarding the blatant jealousy of his success as well as his “outsider” status, proprietor Gerard Perse has pushed the envelope of quality, fashioning first-growth quality wines from one of Bordeaux’s finest terroirs. In St.-Emilion, only Ausone can be considered to have greater potential in terms of micro-climate and terroir. Pavie’s 2005 exhibits a thick-looking purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite perfume of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crushed rocks, damp earth, and hints of truffles and incense. The vineyard’s limestone soils have provided massive concentration, a laser-like precision, fresh, zesty acidity, and massive tannin. Despite the wine’s enormous concentration and intensity, there is a lightness to its style. As Perse has made clear, he is trying to produce modern day versions of such great vintages as 1921, 1929, 1945, and 1947, wines that lasted 50 or more years. I do not understand why Perse receives so much criticism. In the blind tastings of each new vintage conducted by the Grand Jury European, Pavie usually wins against 100 or so other great Bordeaux. As they say, the truth is irrefutable - this is one of the world’s most outstanding wines, and the 2005 Pavie should take its place among the greatest achievements of Bordeaux in the last 50 years. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060. Learn More

    Place your order for this exceptional wine today, and receive it on or around May 16th. Everywhere else gets it in Autumn if they get it at all! 100 Point Wine - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion.... it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor to black currant and blueberry liqueur and spring flowers, this wine’s finesse, elegant yet noble power and authority come through in a compelling fashion. It is full-bodied, but that’s only apparent in the aftertaste, as the wine seems to float across the palate with remarkable sweetness, harmony, and the integration of all its component parts – alcohol, tannin, acidity, wood, etc. This prodigious Haut-Brion is hard to compare to another vintage, at least right now, but it should have 50 to 75 years of aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2065+. Kudos to the team at Haut-Brion and to the proprietors, the Dillon family, who are now represented admirably and meticulously by Prince Robert of Luxembourg. He has made some changes, and all of them seem to have resulted in dramatic improvements to what was already an astonishing group of wines. (2/ 2013) 96-99 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Deep ruby-purple. Brooding, closed nose hints at strawberry, ripe red cherry, white pepper, minerals and violet; showing its cabernet franc element today. Rich and full on entry, displaying lovely depth to its ripe red fruit, underbrush and tobacco flavors. Harmonious acidity keeps this concentrated, dense wine dancing on the palate. Finishes smooth and very long, and still youthfully tight. Another great Haut-Brion, atypically dominated by the cabernet franc presence. I'd venture to say that Haut-Brion is remarkably Lafleur-like this year. One of the stars of the vintage. (6/ 2011) 99 points Wine Spectator *Collectibles* Sappy, tongue-coating pastis, blackberry coulis and loganberry fruit starts this huge wine off, followed by a parade of licorice snap, violet, tar, black tea, roasted alder, wood spice and steeped black cherry fruit notes. A beam of pure cassis drives through this version, and the finish pulls everything together with a mouthwatering brambly edge that should soften slowly over time. A riveting display of brawny power, unbridled energy and high-level terroir. Best from 2020 through 2040. (1/ 2013) 97 points James Suckling This is very spicy with dried mushroom aromas with dark fruits and plum undertones. Sweet tobacco as well. This is full-bodied, with lots of tannins that are chewy and firm. This is muscular for HB and flexing it. Try in 2020. (2/ 2013) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast Very firm, dry tannic, structured. The wine is full of acidity very tough and dry. A concentration of flavors in a dark, brooding framework. (6/ 2011) Learn More
  8. Leopold Gourmel Cognac Quintessence crystal decanter

    Leopold Gourmel Cognac Quintessence crystal decanter

    Price Elsewehere: $1,699.00

    Our Price: $1,344.94

    Size 750ML


    When Pierre Voisin created his cognac house together with Olivier Blanc in 1972, he named it after his grandfather, Léopold Gourmel. Both founders were fond of his authenticity, his closeness to nature when attending his vineyards, his garden and when fishing on the shore of his island, Ile de Ré, off La Rochelle in the Atlantic Ocean . Such a respect for the environment perfectly matched their vision of a natural cognac. As a further reference to Léopold , a horse saddler by profession, they chose the horse’s head as the house logo. Here again, there couldn’t be a better sign than man’s best conquest to symbolize the noble, elegant and refined cognac from Léopold Gourmel. Beyond the emotional link, the justification of this choice can be found in the powerful pronunciation of this name. Saying Léopold Gourmel immediately brings promises of new flavours and moments of complicity. These cognacs are found in every Michelin rated restaurant in France Learn More
  9. Remy Martin Cognac Louis XIII Louis 13 new box design

    Remy Martin Cognac Louis XIII Louis 13 new box design

    $2,800.99

    Size 750ML


    This Cognac boasts only the finest flavors. You are greeted by a noble deep amber color. On the nose there are aromas of delicate flowers, rich fruits and intense spices. On the palate, Louis XIII takes you on a world journey: to China with flavors of lychee and ginger, to Cuba with cigars and cigar box, and Central America with cinnamon. The packaging of Louis XIII shares almost as much history as the Cognac itself. The idea for the glass came from an old bottle found by Emile Rémy Martin on a Jarnac battlefield. Since then, the carafe has evolved into its distinguished shape, manufactured by Baccarat since 1936. A solid gold collar encases the neck, which is adorned by a signature fleur-de-lys crystal stopper. Its Baroque-style glass and design may have been the inspiration for the name Louis XIII, a French king who ruled during the Baroque era. It is also noted that the Rémy Martin family had close connections with King Louis XIII, which serves as another explanation for the Cognac's name. Also of note: the exquisite red box that the bottle comes in is the first new design in 25 years. Learn More
