2010 VOLNAY “LES ANGLES” 1ER CRU
DOMAINE LUCIEN BOILLOT
There is a theme here, and those who love fine wine should be right at home: a great terroir, a producer who deserves to be better known, a great vintage. And in this case, a classic Volnay.

2004 brut “CLOS NOTRE DAME” 1ER CRU
From old-vine Chardonnay planted in pure chalk, this tête de cuvée from Fourny grows more and more interesting year after year, and this 2004 is their best ever—so far. A must for your cellar. And hey, it’s already ten years old!
$173.00 per bottle $934.20 per 6-bottle case
2000 POMEROL • GOMBAUDE-GUILLOT
These pages wouldn’t be complete without an aristocrat from the right bank of Bordeaux. In this case you should plan on taking your sweet time. Sold in original wooden cases. And, for those who care, an organic Pomerol!
$76.00 per bottle $820.80 per case
