2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Champ Gains'
Usually $169- Special Offer $152

There is a whiff of exoticism to the equally deftly wooded nose of acacia blossom, white peach and melon aromas. There is fine richness to the nicely voluminous flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the lightly stony finish that is dry, clean and focused.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 90-92 Points


2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Les Referts'
Usually $185- Special Offer $164

Cask sample. Creamy citrus with a touch of white mushroom, mealy and rich. Spicy lemon on the palate, tight but full of fruit at the core. Deep and impressive. Needs a little more time to gain finesse.
Julia Harding MW, 17/20 Points


2017 Mercury 'Clos du Roy
Usually $75- Special Offer $65

This is actually aromatically similar to the Framboisière with just a touch more elegance. By contrast there is more volume and power to the rich and well-detailed medium weight flavors that offer both more depth and persistence on the somewhat more structured finale. This mineral and earth-inflected effort also offers very fine quality and is worth considering.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 91 Points


2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'La Combe Aux Moines'
Usually $169 - Special Offer $152

A restrained and markedly cool nose reflects notes of violet, plum, earth and a more discreet touch of wood. The supple and relatively forward medium weight flavors possess an appealing sense of energy, all wrapped in a sleek and stony finish that is less austere than usual. As is the case with several wines in the range, this is not especially dense but it is both very complex and well-balanced
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 90-93 Points


2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'Clos des Issarts'
Usually $195- Special Offer $169

This too is aromatically reserved with its airy aromas of violet, plum and earth that are trimmed in soft wood. Once again there is a sleek mouthfeel to the delicious and energetic medium weight flavors that are equally well-balanced and solidly persistent if perhaps not quite as complex. This is a Gevrey 1er of finesse in 2017.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 89-92 Points


2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'Lavaux St. Jacques'
Usually $215 - Special Offer $195

A beautifully layered and fresh nose offers up notes of essence of plum, rose petal, anise and hints of wood toast, forest floor and the sauvage. Once again there is a lovely mouthfeel to the medium weight and tautly muscular larger-scaled flavors that possess excellent delineation and plenty of minerality that adds a touch of lift to the firm, serious and sneaky long finish. I like the complexity and this too should age effortlessly.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 90-93 Points


2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'Les Cazetiers'
Usually $215 - Special Offer $195

Here the wood regimen is no longer subtle though it stops short of masking the beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, dark currant and freshly turned earth. The highly energetic and delineated middle weight plus flavors exude noticeable minerality on the powerful and focused finish that displays outstanding depth and persistence. Moreover, the finish really fans out as it sits on the palate.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 91-94 Points


2017 Corton Grand Cru 'Clos des Cortons Faiveley'
Usually $409- Special Offer $369

An intensely earthy nose is comprised by notably ripe dark currant aromas that are cut with underbrush, spice and a whiff of wood toast and the sauvage. There is an attractive freshness and plenty of vivacity to the velvet-textured full-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess terrific punch on the beautifully long, youthfully austere and notably firm finish. I like the overall sense of complexity and this too should age effortlessly.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 92-94 Points


2017 Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru
Usually $465 - Special Offer $410

A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances. There is a bit better mid-palate density to the richer and much more mineral-driven and refined flavors that display excellent delineation on the linear, focused and mouth coating finish. This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 92-94 Points


2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
Usually $519 - Special Offer $460

Here the expressive nose isn't quite as toasty but it's still far from subtle while managing not to unduly mask the more sauvage-inflected dark berry and forest floor scents. There good density and solid power to the muscular yet reasonably refined flavors that also evidence ample minerality on the beautifully long finale where the supporting tannins are slightly riper. This too should age effortlessly and I often prefer the Latricières but in 2017, the Mazis appears to have a slight edge in quality.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 92-95 Points


2017 Chambertin Grand Cru 'Clos de Beze'
Usually $679 - Special Offer $599

An exuberantly spicy and attractively fresh nose offers up notes of red currant, essence of plum and ample floral influences, all of which is surrounded by much more subtle wood influence. The refined and pure middle weight flavors possess excellent delineation and verve while delivering very fine complexity and persistence on the youthfully austere finish. Like many of the wines in the range, this is not especially dense but it is beautifully harmonious and well-balanced plus the dense but fine tannins should assure a long life.
Allen Meadows, Burghound - 93-95 Points
