Clos de Tart 2015
12 bottles available, $495 per bottle

(97-99) points Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was tasted both as separate cuvées from individual parcels around the vineyard (always a stimulating and insightful exercise) and of course, as the final blend, assembled in the same proportion as eventually bottled. It has a classic bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, hints of dried rose petals in a vase and a distant sea-spray scent that becomes more accentuated with time in the glass. There is a sense of restraint here, keeping lock and key on the precocity of the growing season. The palate is very well balanced with a superb line of razor-sharp acidity, palpable “coolness” imparted by the assiduous early picking. It is equipped with fine tannin, imbued with natural poise and gathers more black fruit towards the finish that offers a subtle slate-like note. It is one of the best I have tasted from this ancient vineyard, so assured and regal, destined to last more than 30 years with ease.”

Clos de Tart 2014
24 bottles available, $395 per bottle

(95-97) points Wine Advocate: “The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand Cru will contain 40% whole bunch fruit in the final. It was picked from September 17 until September 22. This blend that I tasted included the young vines at the bottom of the vineyard that may or may not be deselected to make a Forge de Tart (the decision will be made next year). It is also the first vintage that does not include old vines at the northwest corner that were pulled up in spring 2014, due to be replanted in four years’ time. It has a very well defined bouquet with cranberry and wild strawberry fruit, fine mineral tones and is quite harmonious with hints of wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied and I feel this has tightened up since I tasted it in September 2015. The fruit also seems a little darker. Blackberry and wild cherry, with a hint of cola and certainly more tangible mineralité on the finish, as you can feel the mouth tingling long after it has bid adieu.”

Ponsot Clos de la Roche VV 2015
24 bottles available, $695 per bottle

(93-96) points Burghound: “An overtly floral-suffused nose, and in particular violet and lilac, adds a touch of elegance to the liqueur-like red cherry, plum and dark currant scents. The exceptionally rich and full-bodied flavors possess an outstanding level of dry extract that imparts a highly seductive texture to the mid-palate, indeed it’s even caressing, yet the intensity and power really mount as this moves toward the almost painfully intense and explosive finale. Like its Clos St. Denis stable mate, this is superb and should effortlessly reward 20 years of cellaring and still be around 50 years from now.”

Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui 2015
24 bottles available, $270 per bottle

(92-95) points Vinous: “Bright, dark red. Aromas of black cherry and raspberry along with cooler notes of herbs, mint and flowers. Enters the mouth with plush, sweet dark berry fruit, but an impression of gingery lift and a firm spine of racy acidity energize the middle palate. Ultimately quite backward and imploded, even if the wine’s serious tannins are fine-grained and noble. This very long Clos Vougeot finishes with a strong impression of medicinal reserve.”

Anne Gros Echezeaux Les Loachausses 2015
24 bottles available, $245 per bottle

(91-94) points Vinous: “Good medium red but not as dark as the Vosne villages. Captivating scents of redcurrant, rose petal and tobacco. Ripe and rather powerful for this cuvée, like a coulis of red fruits intensified by penetrating acidity. The tannins are chewy and tactile but not dry, with the finish displaying terrific fruit retention.”

Anne Gros Chambolle Musigny La Combe d’Orveau 2015

12 bottles available, $115 per bottle

(88-91) points Vinous: “Palish red. Like a pungent salad of red berries on the nose, lifted by a floral topnote. Vibrant pomegranate and cranberry flavors are framed by juicy acidity and complicated by a lightly savory quality. The resounding red-fruit finish is lifted by a note of crushed flowers.”
