Champagne Ayala Brut Majeur NV
92  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 92 WS TOP 100 2011 Rank 77"There's a firm, chalky edge to this minerally Champagne, and mouthwatering flavors of candied lemon peel, green apple, crystallized honey and biscuit. This has an elegant texture and an overall sense of style. Drink now through 2020. 50,000 cases made."

Wind Gap 'Sonoma Coast' Syrah 2010
93  John Gilman 
Wine Advocate 93"The 2010 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) bursts from the glass with explosive dark fruit, olives, black pepper, sage, rosemary and juniper berries. Rich, intense and generous, the 2010 is flat-out stunning. The 100% whole clusters are very nicely balanced in this vintage. Delicate, savory

Antonin Guyon Aloxe Corton 1er Cru Les Fournieres 2009
91  Allen Meadows Burghound 
John Gilman 90"The 2009 vintage has delivered a lovely degree of youthful elegance to many wines from Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses (where the grapes were picked before they were overripe), and this characteristic is readily evident in the 2009 Fournières from Domaine Guyon. The nose is

Billecart-Salmon 'Rose' Brut NV

Gerard & Pierre Morin Sancerre 'Rouge' 2009
88  John Gilman 
John Gilman 88"...offers up a fresh and classy nose of cherries, orange peel, woodsmoke, a touch of nuttiness, chalky soil tones and a nice touch of autumn leaves in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, fresh and nicely transparent, with a good core of fruit, moderate tannins

Julien Sunier Fleurie 2011 1.5L
92  John Gilman 
John Gilman 92+"Julien Sunier’s 2011 Fleurie is an absolutely superb example of this top-notch vintage. I assume that this wine is raised along the lines of his fine Morgon- not de-stemmed, fermented in cement tanks and aged in old Burgundy barrels for just under a year prior to bottling. The 2011

Louis Jadot Gevrey Chambertin Les Cazetiers 2011
92  John Gilman 
John Gilman 92"The 2011 Jadot Cazetiers is another great wine in the making, jumping from the glass in mix of black cherries, cassis, grilled meat, black minerality, espresso and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a rock solid core of fruit,
