Domaine Leflaive

Les Folatières Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

Perfect union of two wine taster truths. 1) the best bottles are mispriced restaurant wine list bottles. 2) the best bottles to pay outrageous restaurant markups on are older white burgundies cause they wear the premox risk. Rare and perfect union of the two tonight in St. Louis where a 2009 leflaive les combettes was purchased for a price well below auction or lowest retail. Not the slightest sign of premox. Was actually delicious and characteristically leflaive. Not sure it has the acidity to make it 10 more years but for near term consumption it was really excellent. #bigwin #leflaive #deal — 2 years ago

Legado del Moncayo

Campo de Borja Garnacha 2014

What the what?! This was a mere less-than-eight buck wine I do not even get it. #deal the eye says it is a delightful burgundy not so profound as an elder would wear but perhaps Madonna would in a a pseudo-religious music vid (do I hear like a prayer?) ...on ye olde nose: must, old church and very very ripe cherries. The tongue: light but not tooooo light body. It is apple and pear and cherry all at once then...PEPPER! Hella green pepper. But enough sassy he be sais pas to make me be innnn to the green pepper. Normally I discriminate against green pepper (as opposed to black, white or pink) but the fresh factor is grand here. — 4 years ago

The old vines is not currently in distribution in CA (doh!). Link I previously sent is probably best bet, though I can track down other retailers that could ship if you don't care to purchase there.
