XV du Président 2018
The latest, and hugely acclaimed, release of this BIG favorite; crafted from some of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s oldest vines (many over 100 years old). Miserly yields mean intense flavors in the glass, and 'XV' brims with plum, fig, and wild herbs.
Le Prince de Courthézon Prestige 2018
This special-edition Rhône blockbuster arrives from Thierry Ferlay, one of our favorite Châteauneuf winemakers, and the fantastic 2018 vintage. It boasts a history of gold-medal acclaim and waves of powerfully rich, red- and black-fruit flavors.
Cabalié Vieilles Vignes 2018
Hervé Sabardiel, maker of our popular Cabalié, is so grateful for its success, he’s crafted a special, old-vine version to delight its fans. Made in the style that bolstered Roman soldiers 2,000 years ago, it’s ultra rich and boasts a top gold medal.
Cabalié Coup de Coeur 2018
Hervé Sabardeil’s Cabalié is our richest French red (and a longtime customer favorite). Richer still is his “super cuvée” version that’s crafted from ancient vines and aged in fine oak; guaranteed to win the heart of any BIG reds fan.
Château Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017
Jeb Dunnuck rates Château Sixtine 97 points; Wine Spectator's singled it out as one of 2017's top Châteauneufs (alongside iconic Beaucastel). Factor in the already-legendary quality of the 2017 harvest, and you've got one unmissable wine.
Grande Réserve de Gassac Rouge 2018
World Atlas of Wine legend Hugh Johnson calls the Guibert family’s Mas de Daumas Gassac the “only Premier Grand Cru estate of the Languedoc.” Their complex Grande Réserve (made in the image of their $40+ a bottle Grand Vin) is a must-try.
Château Chantalouette Pomerol 2016
For 38 years, Christian Moueix ran the iconic Château Pétrus. Because we go way back with him, you enjoy exclusive U.S. access to his Château Chantalouette – long recognized as one of the smartest buys in Pomerol – from the excellent 2016 vintage.
Château La Mauberte 2018
The fifth-generation family behind Ch. La Mauberte couldn’t have asked for a better vintage to mark the estate’s 60th anniversary. Bordeaux’s 2018 harvest has been declared one of the best of the decade, and this elegant gem will show you why.
