Veuve Clicquot Grand Dame Artist Series

Fine Champagne has been hard to come by lately, but we just got in some awesome Vintage Veuve! The artwork is also quite beautiful!

Veuve Cliquot La Grand Dame 2012 Yayoi Kusama...$199.99
La Grand Dame is a tribute to Madame Clicquot and to the creative and elegant souls who have followed in her footsteps.

A wine to reflect the image of La Grande Dame herself. Madame Clicquot used her determination, intuition and vision to choose and aquire exceptional grand crus parcels with exceptional grapes.

La Grande Dame 2012 blend is made mainly from grapes from historical Grands Crus vineyards, among the most prestigious in Champagne. Pinot Noir dominates the blend at 90%, magnified by 10% Chardonnay, with grapes from Aÿ, Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay, Bouzy. The 10% Chardonnay comes from the Grands Crus Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Yayoi Kusama adorns the La Grande Dame 2012 case and bottle with her iconic symbols. The opulent flower symbolizes vital energy, love and celebration of life.
The polka dots, Yayoi Kusama's signature patterns, are reworked like champagne bubbles to embody La Grande Dame 2012.

The 2012 La Grande Dame is terrific. In fact, it is one of the finest recent Grande Dames I can remember tasting. Vibrant and tense, the 2012 exudes energy. At this stage, the natural richness of the 2012 vintage is hidden behind the wine's bright, salivating acids. Green apple, pear, mint and white pepper add a brilliant aromatic top register. - ANTONIO GALLONI

Early Times Bourbon Bottled in Bond

Releasing some fun ones for Father's Day while they last

Early Times Bourbon Bottled in Bond...$23.99 / liter
Established in 1860, Early Times is a true American brand. From our rich heritage we have unearthed bourbon inspiration to create a legacy expression that pays homage to Early Times Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon from 75 years ago. This true old-style Kentucky bourbon honors the high standard of historic bourbon-making set forth by the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act.
Established in 1860, Early Times is a true American brand. The name itself is a tribute to the way whisky was made in the “Early Times” of the country. As the Twentieth Century arrived and distilling methods evolved to sophisticated operations, Early Times remained true to its roots as an old-style Kentucky bourbon.
During the turbulent 1940s, Early Times proudly introduced Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon to the satisfaction of the heroic, hard-working men and women of that era. And in the decade that followed, Early Times became America’s top-selling bourbon.
Today, Early Times Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon carries on this rich heritage of the Early Times legacy

Baker's Single Barrel Bourbon 107 Proof...$55.99

Side Project Merci 40th Anniversary Edition

We thought we were sold out, but our New Ballas location had some hidden away.
Back online - perfect Father's Day gift
(at New Ballas now, and online for transfers)

Side Project Merci 40th Anniversary Edition...$30 / 750ml

Our goal with Merci 40th Anniversary Blend was to bring back characteristics of one of our favorite Merci blends - specifically blend #2 when we used the enhanced complexity of our funkier, more wild, wild ale base and then softened that with selected oak barrels of Oude Fermier. For the 40th Anniversary blend, with this concept in mind, we pulled together pieces that include a funky wild ale base from our Coexpressionalism-inspired stock, a puncheon which held Blended 2017 and a puncheon of Oude Fermier which was uncharacteristically more Brett-forward than we normally see. This lovely puncheon was beautiful and incredibly unique, and it provided the last attribute to the final blend for a beer that we anticipate will age as gracefully as Merci Blend #2.

Bernard Levet

Only 1 bottle of each rare MAGNUM available
2020 Bernard Levet Cote Rotie La Chavaroche....$219.99 / 1.5 liter
Labeled La Peroline in markets outside the United States, the 2020 Cote Rotie La Chavaroche (a barrel sample, from the lieu-dit of the same name) is another terrific wine from this tiny estate. It's a bit more complex and herbal-stemmy than the other bottlings, but it's also floral and tea-scented, with baskets of purple raspberries on the nose as well. Medium to full-bodied, it's the silkiest, most complete of the three cuvées at this address, while still boasting ample concentration and length and plenty of ripe tannins. Give it at least another 5 years in a cool cellar.
Rated 95-97/100 The Wine Advocate
Rated 98/100 Vinous Media
Rated 93-95+/100 Jeb Dunnuck

2020 Bernard Levet Cote Rotie Les Journaries....$212.99 / 1.5 liter
Again a prospective sample blended from several barrels, the 2020 Cote Rotie Les Journaries (labeled Maestria outside the United States) is a blend of fruit from La Landonne and Côte Brune. It's full-bodied, rich and tannic, even chewy, with plenty of concentration, yet it's also fresh and fruit-driven, with vibrant notes of purple raspberries and exotic spices. This should be terrific; it just needs a good 5+ years.

Rated 96/100 Vinous Media
Rated 93-95/100 Jeb Dunnuck

2018 Bernard Levet Cote Rotie La Chavaroche ...$219.99 / 1.5 liter

Powerful, spice- and mineral-laced black/blue fruit scents show superb focus and pick up suggestions of smoked meat, licorice and violet with air. Sappy, deeply concentrated and pure, offering juicy blueberry, boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that are firmed by a spine of tangy acidity. Blends power and vivacity with a sure hand and finishes extremely long and minerally, with supple tannins building steadily and in harmony with the wine's assertive dark fruit. 100% whole clusters; all neutral foudres.
Rated 96/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Christian Moueix - owner of Petrus and Dominus started Ulysses back in 2008
2016 Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon....$349.98 / MAGNUM
1.5 liter - Magnum bottle
3 bottles available, each in their own original wood box

Aromas of sweet berries, fresh herbs, currant bush and licorice. Terracotta. Full body, layered and soft, velvety and focused tannins. Breathtaking texture. The focus ad polished is phenomenal. Harmonious. Enticing. Fascinating and thoughtful. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Drink or hold.
Rated 99/100 James Suckling
The deeply concentrated and densely colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon needs additional cellaring. While its tannins are ripe and reasonably supple, the flavors need time to unfold—right now, there's a lot of dark chocolate, mocha and rich loamy notes, with black cherries and cassis yet to really blossom. Full-bodied but restrained, elegant and reserved, it's the most Bordeaux-like of these three prior vintages, still in need of additional aging.
Rated 95+/100 The Wine Advocate
