Domaine G. Roumier Ruchottes Chambertin Grand Cru 2013 0,75 l
Cote de Nuits
91 The Wine Advocate: "...the 2013 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru from Christophe Roumier has a simpler bouquet than its peers: a little reduced to contend with, later sea spray and iodine scents infusing the tightly wound brambly red fruit underneath.

Domaine Clos Rougeard Saumur Champigny Le Bourg 2015 0,75 l
93+ The Wine Advocate: "...generous, intense and salty on the palate, with fine tannins and lots of cherry aromas, this is a ripe, round and juicy Champigny with firm tannins that were still a bit dry when I tasted this wine (summer 2018) and needed some time to fully integrate..."
Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl 2007 0,75 l
91 The Wine Advocate: "...smoky black tea, peat, and grilled peach on the nose follow on a voluminous, oily palate, along with saline, chalky notes surprising in a wine this overwhelmingly ripe, and helping to convey some counterpoint in a finish that almost miraculously is (for now at least) heat-free..."
Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1993 0,75 l
95 The Wine Advocate: "...spectacular bouquet of tobacco, ginger, soy, roasted meat, black cherry, plum, and toast scents is followed by layer upon layer of fruit, sweet tannin, super ripeness, and gorgeous complexity and symmetry..."
