Good til Gone? Yes. Well, it's pretty simple. The wine is good. Really good. But is has to go. And when it's gone, it's gone. Sometimes we just buy too darn much. With thousands of wines coming and going, there's lots going on around here. Wines are overlooked and sit idle, and need a nudge. Browse through this list and check back as I'm sure to add to it. Nothing compromised. These aren't auction goods or close-outs where provenance is a question. It's all good. Prices have been reduced as much as 60%, so, serious bargains here. Best take a look sooner than later. Prices are good til gone.

2009 Chateau Beaucastel Hommage a Jacques Perrin (1.5L)
Mourvedre from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône, France
1

99WA

A brilliant blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Petite Petit (42,000 cases) sports an adorable label showing two scowling elephants. From winemaker Adam Mettler, this opaque purple-colored 2012 exhibits gorgeous aromas of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, licorice, toast and subtle background smoke. With amazing intensity, it is hard to believe a 42,000-case cuvée could be this good, this complex, this tasty and civilized, and still sell at a remarkable $18 a bottle. Enjoy it over the next 5+ years.

2010 Chateau Beaucastel Hommage a Jacques Perrin (1.5L)
Mourvedre from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône, France

98+WA

Tight, dense and backward, the 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin was one of the least approachable wines in the lineup, yet certainly has incredible potential. Offering lots of liquid minerality, crushed rock, blueberry, truffle and cassis, it’s massive and concentrated on the palate, with building tannin, good acidity and a firm, focused feel that begs for cellaring. Hide these in the cellar for another decade.

2008 Domenico Clerico Briccotto (1.5L)
Nebbiolo from Barolo, Piedmont, Italy

88V

The 2008 Barolo Briccotto is a wine Clerico hasn't made since 1994. For years, this parcel in Bussia was the backbone of the Nebbiolo-based Arte. With 2008 Clerico is reintroducing the Briccotto, which will only be bottled in magnums. It is a huge, dark wine made to emphasize the depth and textural richness that is possible with Nebbiolo. Smoke, tar, espresso and licorice add complexity on the mid palate and finish. In my view the Briccotto is overly heavy. More importantly, though, it is the wine's early oxidative notes that are of most concern for its longevity. The Briccotto was aged in four new French oak barrels made from staves that had been toasted on the outside rather than inside, and two used French oak barrels.

2011 Comte Georges de Vogue (750ml)
Pinot Noir from Bonnes-Mares, Burgundy, France

90-93IWC 91WA 89-92BH

Deep red-ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry, roasted herbs, musky earth and chocolate; this could hardly be more different from the Amoureuses. Round, rich and sweet, with a fairly sizable structure for 2011. Plenty of depth here but the black fruit and chocolate flavors seem almost heavy following the Amoureuses. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and excellent rising length. Became increasingly dense and sensual with aeration.

90-93 points, Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar (Jan/Feb 2013)

The 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is surprisingly reticent on the nose, perhaps suffering a little bottle shock. It is eventually possible to eke out pleasant raspberry, pomegranate and mineral notes, but they remain impossibly tightly-wound. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It is more approachable than either the 2009 or 2010 (as would be expected) with a hint of salted licorice on the entry and attractive citric notes pushing the minerals forward on the finish. Drink 2015-2025.

91 points, eRobertParker.com (Issue # 208 - Aug 2013)

A strikingly well-layered nose of dark berry fruit, spice and earth gives way to very rich, round and again quite voluminous middle weight plus flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in muscular finish. In much the same fashion as the Chambolle 1er, there is enough acidity that presently sticks out somewhat and while it may integrate, my score will remain cautious until I have a chance to see the finished wine in bottle next year.

Emilio Lustau VORS 30yr Amontillado Sherry (500ml)
Sherry from Jerez, Spain

97WA

The NV Amontillado VORS is a huge step up in quality and complexity from the rest of Amontillados. Bright brown color, extremely saline in the palate, sharp as a knife. One has to wonder if in the past the origin of this wine could have been Manzanilla rather than Fino. It is clean with a complex nose of curry, old wood, wax, antique shop and shoe polish as well as an extremely concentrated palate. Drink 2013-2021.

2012 Comte Georges de Vogue (750ml)
Pinot Noir from Bonnes-Mares, Burgundy, France

95-97V 94WA

de Vogüé's 2012 Bonnes-Mares explodes from the glass with a soaring mélange of aromas and flavors. Violets, licorice, cloves and tar are some of the notes that add complexity to a core of dark blue and black-toned fruit. Explosive and insanely beautiful, the 2012 is utterly captivating. The overall sensation is like biting into a hard candy, with the crunchy outer sugar representing the firmness of the grape skin and the inner sweetness of the candy as the pure fruit. What a magnificent wine this is.

95-97 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2014)

The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a compelling peppermint and star anis-tinged bouquet that comes racing out of the blocks and begs you to love it. And you will. I must confess that when Frédéric asked my opinion I replied that I thought it was the Amoureuses! The palate is very well balanced with pure black fruit interlaced with mint and spices, a dash of black pepper and a gentle grip toward the finish. This is an exuberant Bonnes-Mares, which is exactly how it should be.
