$225/bottle The perfect wine for any Napa Valley wine collector. Dominus is no longer available at a wholesale level and we only have 12 bottles available. The estate is owned by the Mouiex family–owners of Chateau Petrus–considered by most to be the greatest of all the Bordeaux.
CONDRIEU, DEPONCINS, 2012, FRANCOIS VILLARD
$79/bottle Villard makes some seriously stellar wines. Condrieu is considered to be the finest expression of the Viognier grape in the world. Villard tries to emulate the Burgundians in his approach to wine making. And guess what? He hits it out of the park! This is a wine that is meant to be savored. A very lush wine with dried peach and salted butter notes supporting papaya and mango flavors with a lovely mouthfeel. Condrieu has a long and bright mineral finish, too.
