2009 Michel Bouzereau "Les Grands Charrons"
France/ Burgundy / Meursault
Open, approachable fruit, with concentration, grip, and backbone.  Bouquet of ripe fruit and toasted nuts in a floral and mineral (flint) frame.  Rich and fat, riding a silky balance of unctuousness and freshness.

2009 Cote Bonneville, DuBrul Vineyard
USA / Washington / Yakima Valley
One’s nose fills with tropical fruits, citrus, hazelnut, and fresh brioche. The color recalls a field of straw. On the palate this beauty carries the ripe fruit, tropical notes and rich texture just a step further. We taste the bottom layer of a pineapple upside down cake: oven warm fruit, baked brown sugar and luscious cake. Its power is undeniable. The wine was vinified using traditional Burgundian techniques, aged on the lees for 17 months in French oak, then bottled, unfined and unfiltered, on February 16, 2010. Only 229 cases were produced.

2010 Antica
USA / California / Napa Valley
Lemon peel, flowers, spices and crushed rocks are some of the notes that flow from this taut, mineral-driven wine. Hints of lemon, mint and jasmine reappear on the crisp, delineated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
The Chardonnay grapes came from 10 to 22-year-old vines harvested from nine vineyard blocks that each have their own identifiable qualities. The vineyards (5 different clones) are planted at an average elevation of 1,420 feet on Atlas Peak.
