90 Points - Wine & Spritits (2013 Vintage):
"A classic Meursault in its lush, rounded texture, floral green pear scents and voluptuous nut meat flavors, this tightens up as firm acidity adds to the leesy grip. It’s ready to decant for roast fish." - (April 2017)

Robert-Denogent Pouilly-Fuisse "La Croix" Vieilles Vignes 2018
Original Price: $59.97

Robert-Denogent Pouilly-Fuisse "La Croix" Vieilles Vignes 2018
(Maconnais, Burgundy, France) - [VM 91] [BH 91]

When first tasting the wines of Domaine Robert-Denogent, it is essential to put aside any preconceived notions about the young, over-cropped whites of southern Burgundy. These are wines of a much different class, whose reflection of terroir is one more likely found farther north in the prestigious Côte d’Or. Jean-Jacques Robert took over five hectares of his grandfather’s vines in the Mâconnais just outside the village of Fuissé after finishing law school in 1988. Though most of the harvest had always been sold off to the cooperatives, the small parcels that made up the domaine were already understood to enjoy unique microclimates, producing Pouilly-Fuissés of great pedigree. Jean-Jacques soon came under the influence of two ardent defenders of terroir, the great master of Morgon, Marcel Lapierre, and American importer, Kermit Lynch. Little by little, Jean-Jacques has introduced radical changes to the domaine (while staying faithful to his grandfather’s wisdom about the complexity of the land), finally realizing its full potential. He is now joined by his son, Nicolas.

The Roberts’ individual vineyard parcels are planted with old vines (remarkably so!) on varied soils of granite, schist, limestone, clay, and gravel. Naturally reduced yields imbue the grapes with terrific concentration. The wines undergo a long, slow élévage in barrel that lasts anywhere from fifteen to eighteen months. They are bottled after two winters in barrel, a treatment more common (yet still far from the norm) in the Côte d’Or, and something that really sets them apart in the Mâconnais. At a fraction of the price of the appellations of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, to which they are often compared by aficionados and critics alike, the wines of Robert-Denogent offer tremendous value, wonderful richness, and impressive complexity. An added attraction for some—they age sooner than their counterparts to the north.


The La Croix vineyard is unique in the Maconnais for its schist soils, a sort of black sheep in an appellation known for clay and limestone. Scorned by other local vignerons, La Croix is one of Nico and Antoine Robert’s most prized parcels; they liken it to certain sites in the Jura more than to any other Burgundian terroir. And indeed, the ripe Chardonnay fruit is decisively lean and wiry, finishing on a crunchy note of salted butterscotch you might associate with whites from the likes of Ganevat or Rousset-Martin. The brothers raised this 2018 for three years in a combination of vessels including used barrels, concrete tanks, and amphorae, capturing the best of all worlds.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The palate is fresh and vibrant on the nose with touches of dried honey, hazelnut and smoke, building nicely with a very slight Thai fish oil note on the finish. Very fine. (Drink between 2022-2032)" - NM (Nov 2021)

91 Points - Burghound:
"Nose of white flowers and notably ripe apricot, peach and pineapple scents. The succulent, powerful and overtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors possess excellent intensity and a lovely texture while displaying fine length on the bitter lemon-inflected finale. This isn't my style but particular though it may be, it's impressive all the same."

Henri Costal Chablis Premier Cru “Vaillons” 2019
Original Price: $44.97

Henri Costal Chablis Premier Cru “Vaillons” 2019
(Burgundy, France)

About the Domaine:
Domaine Costal / Henri Costal is a unique collaboration between the well-known Chablis producer Domaine Jean Collet and Kermit Lynch. The project began with a simple barrel tasting with Kermit and led to a custom label, custom vinification, and bottling process exclusively for the American market. The end result of this first tasting was a terroir-driven Chablis from a single vineyard site called Truffières, loosely translated as “site where truffles grow.”

In 2018, owner Romain Collet was digging through his family’s archives and found the original label that his great-grandfather, Henri Costal designed and used when he founded the domaine. Romain proposed that they revive this historical label and use the Henri Costal name. In keeping with Kermit Lynch's desire to preserve historical European wine styles as well as labels, this was a natural fit. Beginning with the 2017 vintage, all wines from this collaboration with the Collet’s have been labeled as Henri Costal.

About this Wine:

• Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless tank
• After racking, wine goes through malolactic fermentation in 1/3 stainless tank, 1/3 neutral barrel (228 L), and 1/3 used demi-muid barrel (600 L)

A stunning, hand-crafted premier cru Vaillons from thirty-year-old vines. This is classic Chablis: precise, pure, and driven. Velvety citrus fruit gives way to textbook chalk, slate, and stone.

"The Costal Vaillons is gently tart, nutty, and bracing, like a bite from a green apple. It exemplifies this vineyard’s refreshing, approachable style." - Kermit Lynch

Domaine Meo-Camuzet Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc "Clos Saint-Philibert" 2020
Original Price: $73.97

Domaine Meo-Camuzet Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc "Clos Saint-Philibert" 2020
(Burgundy, France)

About the Wine:
Méo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Côte d’Or, located in the heart of prestigious Vosne-Romanée. The domaine boasts fourteen hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. The vineyard land in Burgundy is highly parceled out among families, which makes it rare for anyone to have enough vines to be able to bottle one grand cru, let alone the six that the Méos have. Founder Étienne Camuzet was not only a passionate vigneron, but a full-time politician, and spent most of his time in Paris, representing the Côte d’Or. In order to keep his land in use, he offered it to capable share-croppers to farm. By the time his daughter had inherited the estate, she found herself with no successors, so the estate was passed down to her closest relative, Jean Méo, who was also involved in politics:he served as a member of Charles DeGaulle’s cabinet. Jean's son Jean-Nicolas took over in 1985.

This historic Vosne-Romanée estate has a prestigious array of premier cru and grand cru holdings to its name, making its Hautes-Côtes de Nuits parcel stand apart as the humble outlier. A 3.5 hectare vineyard within the boundary of Flagey-Echézeaux sitting at altitude directly above the grand cru Echezaux, the Clos Saint Philibert is just a stone’s throw from some of the most prestigious terroir in all of Burgundy.

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Bursting with aromas of crisp Anjou pear, white flowers, pastry cream and orange oil, the 2020 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with lively acids and a long, saline finish. It's unusually textural and dramatic this year."

Vinous Media:
"Domaine Méo-Camuzet Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert White) The 2020 Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Clos St. Philibert has a fresh pear and green apple scented bouquet. The palate is well balanced with a ripe orange zest and peachy notes, just a slight soft landing on the finish. Fine. Drink between 2023-2027."
