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.

2013 Joseph Drouhin Grand Cru (750ml)
Pinot Noir from Musigny, Burgundy, France

97WA 96BH 95V

The 2013 Musigny Grand Cru was picked on October 8, underwent a 19-day maceration and contains partial whole-cluster fruit. The nose is standoffish at first, but it’s just playing with you. It has superb definition and transparency: wilted violets and blackberry coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, tensile in the mouth, plenty of energy here with a long and beautifully composed finish. This is one of the wines of the vintage - regal and majestic.

95-97 points, eRobertParker.com (Issue # 216 - Dec 2014)

A brooding and reticent nose only grudgingly displays notes of spice, menthol and liqueur-like black cherry aromas. The broad-shouldered flavors are big yet possess a notably more refined mouth feel while conceding nothing in terms of power and punch on the cool, pure and perfectly balanced finish that just seems to go on and on. This is not as big and robust as the Bonnes Mares but it's finer and has that extra dimension of depth and class that a great example of Musigny intrinsically possesses. In short, this is potentially a great wine.

93-96 points, Allen Meadows' Burghound (Apr 2015)

Bright, full red. Deep aromas and flavors of dark fruits, violet, mocha and truffley underbrush. Fat, sweet and rich; full and sharply delineated, combining subtle earthy nuances and captivating floral high notes. Finishes with serious but suave tannins and terrific energy and length. The acidity of the 2013s will slow down their development in bottle, notes Frèdèric Drouhin.

2007 Prà Amarone della Valpolicella (1.5L)
Corvina from Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy

93WS 92V 92WE

This packs a lot into an elegant package, featuring layers of juicy black currant, prune, lots of spice-anise, black pepper and clove-and the sweet stemminess of burning vine clippings joined by hints of espresso and kirsch. These flavors fall effortlessly in a silky sheath over the supple tannins, which show on the firmer finish. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases made.

93 points, Wine Spectator (Aug 2011)

The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella is a big, dramatic wine bursting with dark red fruit, flowers, sweet spices, smoke, new leather and licorice. This is a bit monolithic today, but I sense tons of potential. From time to time the wine's inner sweetness and perfume emerges, suggesting what the future holds. This isn't the most subtle Amarone readers will come across, but it should offer plenty of pleasure for those who appreciate the bold, up-front style. The round, sensual finish invites a second taste.

92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Feb 2011)

Elegant and austere, this opens with thick layers of chocolate fudge, toasted espresso bean, Christmas spice and overripe berry fruit. It boasts huge flavor intensity and big alcohol. This is a bold Amarone that’s perfect for long weekends at a ski lodge or cozy nights at home..
