Bid on this bottle of 2006 Domaine Georges Roumier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Cras" (92RP, 92WS, 90BH, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A complex aromatic melange of smoked meat; sauteed mushroom; diverse, lightly-cooked berries; and nutmeg greets the taster from the glass of Roumier 2006 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras. A tart edge to the fruit and savory salinity lend some of the same invigoration that characterized other wines in this collection, but here allied to deep meatiness and an underlying impression of wet stone. The tannins are superbly refined and the finish penetrating and dynamic in its interplay of fungal, fruity, mineral, carnal, and spicy notes. Here is another instance of the vigor and almost airy openness of the vintage beautifully expressed. I suspect this will be worth following for 6-8 years, but make sure not to deprive yourself of the pleasure of its youthful charms. (DS)" (12/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Jacky Truchot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Les Ruchots". Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is bigger, richer and fuller with a bit more depth and complexity but not the elegance or precision. Still, this is delicious, complex, seductive and mouth coating. This should drink well after 4 to 5 years of cellar time." (01/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Malconsorts" (94RP, 92ST, 91BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Dujac 2006 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts – displays a more consistently sweet (cherry, plum, and blackberry) fruit and refined, creamier texture than the corresponding Beaux Monts. Black tea, star anise, honey, and brown spices along with a raw meat undertone add intrigue, and this finishes with polished, even soothing length. All in all, it struck me that Malconsorts and Beaux Monts were exhibiting a role reversal on this occasion. This is certainly grand cru in its complexity and length, and should I suspect merit following for the better part of a decade. (DS)" (12/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Kistler "Cuvée Natalie-Silver Belt" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97JD, 95RP, 94VN, 92WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Cuvée Natalie is a mix of Calera and Swan clones as well as cool, more iron oxide-driven soils. It offers more red fruits with sensational notes of strawberries, spice, and wet stone literally soaring from the glass. Perfectly balanced, with ultra-fine tannin and a seamless texture, drink this complex, layered, multi-dimensional Russian River Valley Pinot Noir anytime over the coming 10-15 years." (06/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Lucien Le Moine Chambertin - Clos de Beze Grand Cru (95ST, 95WS, (93-94RP), (90-93BH)). Wine Spectator: "A complex, vibrant red, at once powerful and elegant, showing floral, wild cherry, blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors matched to a firm structure. It builds in intensity on the palate, with finely grained tannins shoring up the finish. Long, detailed aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2030. 75 cases made. (BS)" (05/2006)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny . Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reflecting Drouhin’s especially large, choice holdings in this commune, their 2005 Chambolle-Musigny offers charry, smoky, meaty, pungently herbal and sweetly floral aromatics. Displaying subtle beef marrow richness, inner-mouth florality and cherry stone bitterness on the palate, this delicate and demure, bright and incipiently silken Pinot wants just a bit for juiciness and displays a slightly drying spot in the finish which I suspect is attributable to bottle shock. (DS)" (06/2007)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Vincent Girardin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses". Vincent Girardin is one of those enterprising dynamos that make Burgundy such a fascinating contrast between staid, family-based agriculture and savvy, cosmopolitan economics. Biodynamically certified since 2009, the domaine now boasts 22 hectares of vines in the Côte de Beaune, almost all of them white. However, the négociant arm of the operation also sources fruit from some of the most storied crus in the Côte de Nuits. Les Amoureuses can stand toe to toe with all but the top four or five grands crus, and Girardin's expression of this hallowed vineyard, along with the wonderful quality of the 2002 vintage, comes through beautifully in this wine.

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Sea Smoke "Ten" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. Winemaker notes: "Hand-harvested, clusters were sorted in the vineyard and then gently destemmed following an evening in our cold room. All ‘jack stems’ were removed on the sorting table. Musts were cold soaked in open-top fermenters for five days, and then inoculated with cultured yeasts to begin slow fermentation. Each tank was manually punched down two times per day, with a total maceration time of sixteen to twenty-eight days. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration, all free run wine was transferred to tank for settling, and then pressed at extremely low pressure (0.08 bars) to avoid extracting bitterness. After settling overnight both free-run and press wines were racked to barrels. Ten was bottled with no fining and no filtration."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Peter Michael "Ma Danseuse" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir (100RP, 94JS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The compelling 2012 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse (1,480 cases) is even better than the 2013. Notes of lead pencil shavings, DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian plum sauce, rose petal and sweet cherry characteristics are found in this spectacular, multidimensional, prodigious Pinot Noir that should drink well for 10-15+ years. The clonal material probably came from one of the DRC vineyards, so it is not surprising that. in this cool climate, with the great fruit purity California can achieve, there is a DRC-like resemblance. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Williams Selyem Sonoma Pinot Noir Vertical Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2016 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (94CG, 94JD, 94RP, 94WE, 93VN) and 1-bottle of 2016 Williams Selyem "Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (95CG, 95W&S, 94VN, 93WE, 92RP). Of the 2016 Williams Selyem "Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir,Wine & Spirits writes: "When Burt Williams sold his interest in Williams Selyem to John and Kathe Dyson in 1998, he purchased this 40-acre ranch in Philo, where he planted 13 acres of pinot noir. The hillside planting, at an elevation of 600 feet, faces north and northeast, a cool exposition for grapes further cooled by proximity to the coast. Jeff Mangahas, who now tends to winemaking at Williams Selyem, used those grapes to produce a delicate pinot noir, fragrant with scents of cherry blossoms, its darker tones of spring mushrooms, moss and conifer forests wa

Bid on this bottle of 1993 Michel Gaunoux Pommard 1er Cru "Les Grands Épenots". The domaine was founded by the Gaunoux family in the late 19th Century and is now managed by Alexandre Gaunoux. The domaine is unique in that the wines are not allowed to be tasted until after élevage and bottling. Winemaking methods are traditional with late harvests, high-temperature, primary and malolactic fermentations using natural yeasts and aging with minimal new oak.

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Jacky Truchot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Les Ruchots" (92JG). John Gilman: "It offers up a fine bouquet of black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, herb tones, a hint of venison, nice soil tones, woodsmoke and a bit of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is medium-full, deep and complex, with fine mid-palate depth, a lovely expression of terroir, fine balance, and a long, modestly tannic and tangy finish. This has a bit more meat on the bones than the Clos Sorbés, but I love the floral aspect of the Clos Sorbés. Qualitatively they are equals, as the ’05 Ruchots is another excellent bottle Drink between 2012-2030." (12/2006)
Starting Bid: $665.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2014-2015 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Vertical, including 2-bottles of 2014 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (94RP, 93JG, 92VN, 90BH) and 2-bottles of 2015 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (94VN, 92JG, 92RP). Of the 2014 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a solid step up over the Anderson Valley release and has more tension, elegance and precision. Offering up classic notes of strawberries, spice, black cherries and a touch of sous bois, it has medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity of fruit and integrated acidity. Give bottles a year or two and drink through 2026. While the majority of 2014s are charming and supple, that’s certainly not the case with these latest releases from Kevin Harvey. I found all of his 2014s to be concentrated, structured wines that defy the vintage stereotyp

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Kosta Browne "Giusti Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (95RP, 94VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the Russian River Valley and the newest single vineyard from this team (the first vintage was 2012), the 2013 Pinot Noir Giusti Vineyard is another big, rich, full-flavored Pinot Noir that gives up slightly lifted notes of dark fruits, graphite and peppery spice. Almost completely destemmed and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak, it’s a sensational Pinot Noir with terrific purity in its concentrated, layered and textured personality. It's superb today, but will cruise through at least 2023. (JD)" (10/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Véroilles" ((94-95RP), 94ST, 91JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barthod’s 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Veroilles (of which there will be 150 cases) leads with a Nebbiolo-like bouquet of violets, blond tobacco and black tea with distilled cherry high-tones, all atop an aromatic base of blackberry and purple plum that take on liqueur-like dimensions as the wine overruns the palate. Inner-mouth florality and honeyed, spicy accents add exotic allure to an already intense fruit appeal. While fat in its ripe fruit presentation, this wine boasts a boatload of fine tannins and a palpable sense of mineral extract, finishing with cherry, blackberry, plum, horehound, pepper, honey, chocolate, tobacco and chalk that left me chewing the air afterward. Give this at least 8-10 years rest and expect many more of enjoyment. (DS)" (04/2007)

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2006 Merry Edwards "Olivet Lane" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (92CG, 90W&S). Connoisseurs Guide: "Not unlike the Marimar wines, but more fully concentrated, this wine has always contained quite ample acidity and asked for bottle aging. Its fairly precise varietal aroma of red cherries with hints of sweet spices and a dollop of crème brûlée and slightly toasty oak puts it out ahead of the crowd, and its full and impeccably balanced palatal impressions only add to its luster. It will benefit from bottle age but does not demand overly long patience." (02/2009)
Starting Bid: $285.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Emmanuel Rouget Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaumonts" ((92-94RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A full array of Indian spices accompany the deep, sweet black cherry fruit on the nose of Rouget’s 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaumonts. Strongly-spiced black cherry and cassis saturate the palate, but so do unmistakably meaty, and truffly flavors. Carrying more fresh-berry tartness and kick to it than the village Vosne, this is less immediately appealing or flatteringly creamy. Tactile spiciness, bright fruit, an impressively lean (fat-free) meatiness, and chalky minerality inform the superbly long, oscillating finish. It shows real refinement and class already, but should really hit its stride after 5-7 years (and remain on form for at least twice that long). (DS)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $479.00

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Olivier Bernstein Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Champeaux" ((91-93ST), (90-92BH)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Very sexy aromas of pure black raspberry, smoked meat, fresh herbs and spices. Silky-sweet and very intense, with the stem component adding spice and definition to the complex dark fruit and smoked meat flavors. Densely packed, juicy and a bit youthfully imploded. Finishes very long and spicy, with a firm underlying spine for aging. (ST)" (03/2010)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Vincent Girardin Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((92-94RP), (92-94VN)). Vinous: "Ruby-red. Wild black fruits, leather, meat and iron on the nose; more earthy than floral, and very Chambertin-like. Full, silky, suave and fine-grained, with lovely definition and considerable class. A step up in length from the preceding samples. In fact, this is extremely persistent and subtle, with very fine tannins.(ST)" (03/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux Grand Cru ((91-94BH), (91-93RP), 92ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe, expressive and airy nose that combines both upper and mid-level register fruit notes that include red pinot, black berry and violet notes trimmed in moderate wood spice as well as natural spice notes of clove and anise that can also be found on the round, rich and beautifully balanced big-bodied flavors that are powerful, long and more stylish than usual. This is a terrific Ech that should be capable of at least a decade's worth of improvement." (01/2007)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Kosta Browne "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (95RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top examples I was able to taste from this terrific vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2014 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is a big, rich, concentrated effort that gives up full-bodied notes of savory herbs, scrub brush, black currants and the classic savory, earthy and mineral characteristics that this site is known for. Fermented with 25% whole clusters, it has lots of texture, lots of tannin, and lots of length. It's a smokin' wine to drink anytime over the coming 10-12 years. (JD)" (09/2016)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 3L-bottle of 2013 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (3L) (OWC - 95DC, 95JG, 94RP, 94VN, 92BH) in original wood. Decanter: "It was Jeremy Seysses of Burgundy’s Domaine Dujac who alerted me to the amazing things that Kevin Harvey and his team at Rhys are doing, and that seems appropriate as the wines certainly seem to nod to Dujac’s style. The 2013 Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of the most compelling young wines I’ve tasted from Rhys. Its youthful and savoury bouquet of crisp red and black cherry, fresh herbs, cinnamon and rich forest floor is followed on the palate by a wine of impressive vibrancy and depth. Rhys wines are built for the cellar, and the handful of older bottles I’ve encountered suggests that patience really is rewarded. (WK)"

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru (96RP, 95BH, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rousseau’s 2008 Chambertin-Clos de Beze is off the charts. Textured and layered throughout, this exquisite, captivating wine graces the palate with endless fruit framed by silky, refined tannins. All of the elements build effortlessly to the dazzling, impeccably crafted finish. (AG) 96+" (05/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Kosta Browne "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (94RP, 93VN, 91CG, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorites in the lineup, the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard shows its 15% whole cluster fermentation with the darker fruit, ground pepper, herbs and background meatiness that shows on the nose. A rich, full-flavored, yet still seamless and elegant Pinot Noir, it has solid underlying structure and beautiful focus that comes through on the finish. It can be consumed anytime over the coming 5-7 years. This was another stacked lineup by the team of Dan Kosta and Michael Browne. All of these wines showed the more approachable style of the 2012 vintage, and had seamless, elegant characters. They're beautiful now, but I suspect they will evolve nicely given their overall balance. (JD)" (10/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin "Ostrea" (90VN). Vinous: "Weightless and gracious on the palate, the Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is laced with raspberries, crushed flowers, mint and anise, all in a pointed, mid-weight style that is undeniably appealing. The lifted aromatics and beautifully articulated finish impart a sense of freshness that is quite appealing. From barrel, the Ostrea, which emerges from pre World War II parcels in Brochon, was quite a bit deeper. It will be interesting to see if that fruit re-emerges with more time in bottle (AG)" (03/2014)
Starting Bid: $185.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97WE). Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has a fresh, bubbly personality that’s complemented by complex, earthy undertones of rose and forest floor. The tannins offer grip to the palate, adding texture and weight within a framework of balanced acidity. (VB)" (05/2019)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru (96BH, 95ST, 94VN, 93RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is completely different from the Bèze aromatically speaking as here the nose is brooding and recalcitrant and only aggressive swirling liberates fresh scents of spice, wet stone, game and dark berry fruits. There is outstanding richness to the powerful and impressively scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a velvety quality to the mid-palate while also buffering the tightly wound core of firm tannins on the driving mineral-inflected and hugely persistent finish. This is a stunner of a wine and one of the great wines of the 2011 vintage." (01/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune Grèves 1er Cru "Vigne de L'Enfant Jésus" (92BH, 90ST, 90W&S, 90WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The recent mise has not troubled this either as the nose is wonderfully expressive, rich and classy, leading to concentrated, dense, pure, textured and beautifully detailed and precise flavors that ooze minerality and sap on the wonderfully long finish. This is very powerful for a Beaune 1er and it will be capable of aging for two decades, perhaps longer." (04/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche Grand Cru ((94-96RP), 96VN, (93-95ST)). Vinous: "The 2005 Clos de la Roche is just starting to develop the first hints of tertiary nuance. Smoke, leather, game, licorice and dark-fleshed fruits abound. Deep, bold and super-expressive, with elements of gravitas and baritone darkness, the 2005 possesses off the charts richness and intensity. Even so, the brisk, saline notes that are a signature of this site are very much present beneath the fruit. The 2005 is now approaching its first plateau of maturity, which makes it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next two decades or more. (AG)" (05/2017)

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2006 Merry Edwards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (1.5L) (91WE). Wine Enthusiast: "Acidity marks this ripe, delicious wine, giving it a tartness that works to balance the extraordinarily ripe flavors. Cherries, black raspberries, mulberries and pomegranates all mingle together, with spice and cedar complications, and the finish is totally dry and somewhat tannic. Great now, and should hold for a good six years." (03/2009)
Starting Bid: $155.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013-2014 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2013 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (96VN, 95RP, 93BH, 93JG) and 2-bottles of 2014 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95RP, 95VN, 94JG). Of the 2013 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir,Vinous writes: "An absolute triumph from Rhys, the 2013 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard is all about translucence and a total sense of weightlessness. The flavors are lifted and precise throughout in an utterly captivating Pinot that captures the essence of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Hints of rose petal, dark red cherry, anise and licorice grace the haunting, exquisite finish. The Horseshoe is arguably the most refined of these 2013 Pinots from Rhys. (AG)" (07/2015)

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2002 Merry Edwards "Klopp Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (90CG, 90WS). Wine Spectator: "Firm, intense and concentrated, with an engaging wild streak running through the zesty blackberry and wild berry fruit flavors. On the finish, it reveals its youthfulness with its mix of new oak and firm, stemmy tannins, but a year or two in bottle should do the trick, rounding out the few rough adolescent edges. (JL)" (08/2004)
Starting Bid: $190.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Petits Monts" (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe and mildly oaky nose displays the initial hints of secondary development but still remains mostly primary with plenty of spice elements to the plum and various dark berry fruit aromas. The moderately robust, delicious and admirably concentrated medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the firm but not hard yet mildly austere finish that displays a hint of warmth. While this could be enjoyed now, I would advise continued patience as there is plenty of remaining upside development potential." (03/2017)
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2003 Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (92WS). Wine Spectator: "Intense and concentrated, with ripe, rich layers of plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit, accented by mineral and pebble flavors. On the finish, the tannins are firm, giving it excellent structure. (JL)" (06/2006)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2012 Rhys San Mateo County Pinot Noir (92VN, 91RP, 91ST, 90BH). Vinous: "Crushed rose petals, mint, sweet red berries and cinnamon are some of the many notes that meld together in the 2012 Pinot Noir San Mateo. A wine of precision and nuance, the 2012 impresses for its balance. Sweet and savory notes from the inclusion of 60% whole clusters add lift on the finish. In 2012, the San Mateo is a blend of 60% Family Farm, 30% Horseshoe and 10% Alpine. (AG)" (07/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Peter Michael "Le Moulin Rouge" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (94RP, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge has come on like gangbusters since last year. Sensational dark berry fruits (particularly raspberries, blueberries, and currants) are intertwined with subtle smoke, graphite, and oak aromas in this dense ruby/purple-tinged 2007. With terrific fruit, full body, and an opulent style, it should provide immense pleasure over the next decade." (02/2010)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Hauts Doix"  (92RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Hauts Doix (from a small site that wraps around one third of Les Amoureuses) offers iris, musky narcissus florality, vanilla, raspberry and rhubarb in the nose, a silky palate with hints of smoke and game, and a juicy, sappy, bright, finish. Serge Groffier says he doesn’t think this site can take more than a third of new wood, which has certainly faded into the background. A few years will tell what sort of additional complexity this will add (the 2002 is simply sensational today), but its combination of textural richness, clarity and kinetic vibrancy is already impressive. (DS)" (04/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Michel Lafarge Volnay. From Berry Bros & Rudd: "Michel Lafarge, now in his eighties, and his son Frédéric make use of their combined experience top produce some of the greatest Burgundy wines in Volnay. There is nothing modern in their winemaking, though the meticulous care of their biodynamically farmed vineyards puts the domaine at the forefront of viticultural practices. When they are working ona patch of vines they are usually accompanied by their hens who eat up any little pests which may be lurking! They have around 10 hectares of vines and own some of the very best sites in Volnay. The vines are mature but not excessively old and yields are low without being draconian. There is very little new oak used, and the current mix is 5% new oak, with the balance of 2-to 5-year-old wood. The wines are handled as seldom as possible, with only a couple of rackings, a light fining and rarely any filtration. The Lafarge domaine is run very much by instinct and res

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay 1er Cru "Chevret" (94BH, 90VN). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A beautiful array of floral nuances that include rose petal, lavender and violet adds elegance to the restrained, airy and cool red currant aromas. The understated and equally restrained medium-bodied flavors culminate in an exceptionally pure and tension-filled finish that is pure silk. This lacy and strikingly beautiful effort is a classic Volnay as the palate impression is gossamer fine yet this will need plenty of cellar time. *Don't Miss! Outstanding* " (04/2012)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94RP, 93VN, 92WS, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large vineyard (Gap's Crown is roughly 130 acres), the 2013 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard comes from a smaller 37-acre parcel owned by Kosta Browne, which lies at an elevation of 1,000 feet above sea level. Harvest all towards the end of September and aged 16 months in 51% new French oak, it has a slightly darker slant in its wild strawberry, black raspberry, spice and sappy flower stem-like aromas and flavors. Elegant, seamless and downright pretty, it grows on you with time in the glass and is a gorgeous Pinot Noir to drink over the coming decade. (JD)" (10/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Leroy Chambolle-Musigny "Les Fremieres" (93RP, (89-92ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chambolle Les Fremieres exhibits a unique aroma of sweet pea, thyme, mocha-coffee, black currant, and smoked meat. Rich and creamy in the mouth, it nevertheless registers a brightness of fruit and invigorating cast as it spreads its charm to all corners of the palate. Porcine, smoky meatiness is never far from the surface, though, nor is a wet stone, chalky mineral cast that segues into the wine’s fine underlying tannins. A finish of sweet black currant fruit accompanied by bitter-sweet herbal notes offers exemplary transparency to floral nuances and underlying minerals. As with the Genaivrieres, there is plenty of delicious mystery here over which to scratch one’s head. (DS)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $1,350.00

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Rhys "Alpine Hillside" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (98JD, 97RP, 92BH). Jeb Dunnuck: "There are three monumental wines in the lineup and the 2016 Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside is one of them. Slightly deeper colored, it tastes like the straight Alpine release, but with the intensity turned all the way up. Thrilling notes of white flowers, forest floor, crushed rocks, and both red and black fruits give way to a medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that has perfect balance and a layered, powerful, yet incredibly elegant style on the palate. It’s one of the finest Pinot Noir to come from these magical terroirs just south of San Francisco. Give bottles a few years and enjoy over the following 10-15." (02/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru (98ST, (94-97BH), 95JG, (93-95RP), 95WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, full deep red. Pungently mineral aromas of raspberry, dried flowers, flint, smoke, mocha and underbrush. A monumental wine of ungodly intensity and extract without any impression of excess weight. The dusty, tactile extract fills the mouth with spicy, minerally, high-toned perfume, and the wine ascends to an even higher level on the peacock's tail of a finish, which boasts great energy and persistence. I drank this bottle over a period of four nights (one of us has to show some restraint), and oxygen couldn't kill, much less flatten, its treble tones, even as its volume and sweetness expanded. I hope I have a chance to revisit this at its peak, in about 20 years. (ST) 98+" (03/2008)

Bid on this bottle of 1993 J-F. Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Fuées". Wine Spectator: "A purely luscious, plush-textured, young red boasting generous fruit flavors, moderate tannins and lingering finish." (05/1996)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Kosta Browne "Giusti Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (94RP, 92ST, 92VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I believe a new vineyard, the 2012 Pinot Noir Giusti Vineyard, shares some similarities to the the Koplen Vineyard, with its intense, focused style. Showing plenty of plum, licorice, toasted spices (cinnamon) and hints of vanilla bean, this beauty flows onto the palate with no hard edges, beautiful mid-palate density and a focused, lengthy feel on the finish. Nothing is out of place here, and it's a rock-star bottle of wine that can be consumed anytime over the coming 4-6 years. This was another stacked lineup by the team of Dan Kosta and Michael Browne. All of these wines showed the more approachable style of the 2012 vintage, and had seamless, elegant characters. They're beautiful now, but I suspect they will evolve nicely given their overall balance. (JD)" (10/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Aubert "UV-SL Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97JS, 93RP, 93VN, 93WS). James Suckling: "Dried strawberry and cedar with sandalwood on the nose. White pepper as well. Full body, round and rich yet austere at the finish. Love quality of tannins. Juicy and savory. Excellent intensity." (05/2017)

Of the 2006 Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Sweetly ripe black fruits in the nose of the Ponsot 2006 Clos de La Roche Cuvee Vieilles Vignes prepare the way for a more succulently, generously sweet fruit,

Of the 2005 Château de la Tour Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru,Allen Meadows - Burghound writes: "A deeply pitched and very ripe nose of earthy violet aromas trimmed in subtle wood spice notes introduces rich, full and powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate sap that helps to buffer the very firm and dense tannic spine on the youthfully austere finish. This is a very serious no-nonsense wine clearly built for long aging." (01/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (96ST, (93-95BH), (93-95RP), 95WS, (91-93JG)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright, full red. Brooding aromas of medicinal blueberry and menthol lifted by brilliant high notes of rose petal, mace and minerals. Compellingly deep and young, even youthfully imploded today, but this already boasts brilliant detail and energy and an exhilarating high pitch. Penetrating, powerful blue fruits, graphite, flowers and minerals stain the palate with flavor and will not quit. A great Bonnes-Mares for the Musigny lover. Should gain in bottle for two decades and go on for another two. (ST) 96+" (04/2008)

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Rhys "Alpine Hillside" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (1.5L) (OWC - 96JG, 95RP, 94VN) in original wood. John Gilman: "The 2014 Alpine Hillside bottling of pinot noir from Rhys Vineyards is once again my favorite of this absolutely stellar roster of 2014 pinots from this great Santa Cruz Mountain property. The wine offers up a marvelous nose of black plums, black cherries, espresso, woodsmoke, black minerality, fresh thyme and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and tightly-knit, with a marvelous core, great mineral drive, bright acids and outstanding length and grip on the ripely tannic and laser-like finish. At this point in its evolution, this does not seem quite as magical as the 2013, but this should not take away from the sheer brilliance this wine will deliver when it is fully mature. Drink between 2024-2060. 96+" (08/2016)
