94 Points & "Editors’ Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Lingua Franca, a Larry Stone/Dominique Lafon project, offers a challenging, absorbing lineup of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. The Avni bottling is tangy and tight, with white peach and melon fruit and hints of toasted nuts and butter. The finish extends gracefully, keeping you riveted." - Paul Gregutt (2/1/2018)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate :
“The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo flaunts its importance. It boasts confidence and an outward-looking personality that comes as a refreshing surprise. Like all Gran Selezione wines, it is released 30 months after January 1st following the harvest. That means it still has a few more months to go before it hits the market. This expression of Sangiovese shows depth and power with ripe fruit tones of cherry and forest berry. Like many of the other high profile wines I preview-tasted from the difficult 2014 vintage, I am delighted and surprised by the elegant and soft nature of the mature tannins. The wine’s finish offers bright freshness with layers of dark fruit, wet earth and forest floor.” - Monica Larner (Apr 28, 2017)

94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Deep red. Ripe black raspberry and cherry cola scents are complemented by suggestions of exotic floral oils, Indian spices and woodsmoke. Plush, sweet and sappy on the palate, offering concentrated red and dark berry and cherry liqueur flavors that become more lively with aeration. In a rich but decidedly vibrant style, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes smooth, focused and extremely long, with building spiciness and smooth, gently gripping tannins." - Josh Raynolds (Dec 2016)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Gorgeous and soft, the 2013 Fontalloro is another landmark wine from this classic vintage. There is enormous intensity here and the wine is only at the beginning of its long aging trajectory. I suggest you put off drinking it for five to ten more years. There is evident thickness and generosity here, especially in the way those bold fruit favors are woven between dark spice and leather. There are sour accents on the close that remind you of the wine's youth. The tannins are fine and well integrated." - Monica Larner (30th Dec 2016)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni’s Vinous:
“The 2013 Haiku, Ama's Sangiovese-based blend is soft, succulent and nicely expressive. Black cherry, plum, espresso, violets, cloves and new leather are fused together in a beautifully layered, unctuous wine with striking depth. The Haiku offers the darker profile found in the Bellavista with the immediacy, juiciness and silkiness that is typical of Casuccia. This is the best version of the Haiku yet. The blend is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.” - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2016)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"From one of the cooler terroirs on the estate, the 2012 Pinot Noir Ryan Vineyard offers full-bodied richness and depth to go with ample sweet black cherries, cassis, sassafras, crushed flowers and toasted spice. A decidedly hedonistic, full throttled example of this cuvee, this superb Pinot Noir firms up nicely on the finish and has a full, layered mid-palate. Drink it now, or cellar it for a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (27th Aug 2015)

Quilceda Creek "CVR" Red Wine 2015 (Columbia Valley, Washington)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage):
"One of the finest examples of this cuvee to date, the opulent, sumptuous and downright sexy 2014 Cvr Columbia Valley Red Wine gives up loads of black currants, kirsch, licorice, toasted spice and dried herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, gorgeously textured, round, and just about as hedonistic as it gets, yet without being over the top or heavy in the least, drink it anytime over the coming decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (30th Jun 2017)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Chablis has a honeyed bouquet with flecks of white chocolate. As the aromas unfold there is a seam of lemon curd and a distant scent of chalk dust. The palate is well balanced with superb salinity considering the warmth of the growing season; vibrant and quite deep toward the poised finish. It seems to have lost some of its nascent spiciness from barrel, yet there is unquestionably impressive body and concentration, suggesting it will age with style." - Neal Martin (31st Aug 2017)

6-PACK PRICE = $115.97 per bottle (add 6-11 quantity to your basket)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Great elegance and finesse already on the perfectly brilliant and aromatic nose shows Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs Brut, displaying white and stewed apples with fine citrus flavors and discreet chalky aromas. The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish. Dosed with seven grams per liter, this extraordinary Blanc de Blanc Brut tastes drier than the Réserve Brut, but reveals a perfect ripeness of yellow fruits. The finish is lovely aromatic and intense, but also clear, fresh, firm and absolutely stimulating. This is a great Blanc de Blancs from the Grand Cru villages of Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger." - Stephan Reinhardt (3rd Mar 2016)
