Big Bottles


Jeroboam, Rehoboam, Methuselah, Salmanazar, Balthazar and Nebuchadnezzar…we have them all! Not the Biblical Kings of course, but exceptionally fine wines in the ideal format! There is no better center piece at a table or in a cellar than one of these big bottles. Nothing says “party” like a Balthazar of wine. A Balthazar is 16x larger than a normal bottle…a 12-liter bottle! And why are these bottles named after the Biblical Kings you may ask? Well, no one really knows, but you can sure have some fun reading all the crazy stories.

Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Pommard-Grands-Epenots-Double-Magnum-2015

Clos de la Chapelle, Pommard ''Grands Epenots'' Double Magnum, 2015

“The Grands Epenots bottling from Clos de la Chapelle hails from just under a quarter hectare of vines in this superb premier cru, with the vines here amongst the youngest the domaine farms, with the vineyards now twenty-five years of age. The 2015 Grands Epenots is another absolutely outstanding example of the vintage from Clos de la Chapelle, offering up great purity to go along with perfectly ripe fruit and exceptional expression of terroir. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a fine constellation of sappy red and black cherries, gamebird, dark chocolate, superb soil tones, fresh thyme, an exotic touch of lavender, a bit of bonfire and a discreet framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is a bit more reserved than the Chanlins, but also a very elegant interpretation of this vineyard, with its full-bodied format offering a superb core, lovely soil signature, ripe, fine-grained tannins and outstanding length and grip on the nascently complex finish. This will need a few more years than the Chanlins to start to stir, but it will be every bit as marvelous at its apogee.”

Lanson-Brut-LVC-Magnum-1996

Lanson, Vintage Collection Brut Magnum, 1996

“The Lanson Vintage Collection brings together vintage wines going back more than a century. Each year, a small number of bottles from 1976 and beyond are proposed to a restricted circle of connoisseurs, on a quest for oenological emotions. These wines are admired and coveted by connoisseurs throughout the world.

1996 was an exceptionally good year in Champagne, with weather conditions not unlike those of 1976. Lanson 1996 vintage, with its very mineral aromatic palette, is a very rich and complex wine promising many more years to come."

Domaine-Vacheron-Sancerre-Imperial-2016

Domaine Vacheron, Sancerre Imperial, 2016

“With cellars located in the charming, hilltop town of Sancerre, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron have vineyards in mainly the eastern part of Sancerre on hard, flinty soils as well as smaller holding on softer limestone and clay soils. Their “village” Sancerre bottling draws from both terroirs to create a subtle, mineral and completely satisfying wine. One of the few estates in Sancerre to harvest entirely by hand this wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in tank for at least 4 months before bottling." -Winery notes

Domaine-Lignier-Michelot-Clos-de-La-Roche-Magnum-2011

Domaine Lignier-Michelot, Clos de La Roche Magnum, 2011

Domaine Lignier-Michelot 2011 Clos de La Roche Magnum is a rich red Burgundy that offers powerful layers of sweet fruit, chocolate, spice, oak and earth character with great complexity and balance, full body and a long finish.

“Good deep red. Deep, sappy aromas and flavors of maraschino cherry, licorice, chocolate, mocha and spices, plus hints of damp earth and underbrush. The sweetest of these 2011s and quite open-knit today. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins.”
- International Wine Cellar (91-93 points)

“There is enough wood to notice though it does not dominate the ripe plum, black cherry, cassis, warm earth and abundant spice nuances. There is outstanding richness to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that possess a suave mouth feel before culminating in a firm, long, balanced and superbly complex finish. Well worth considering.”

Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Corton-Rognets-Double-Magnum-2015

Clos de la Chapelle, Corton Rognets Double Magnum, 2015

“The 2015 Corton “Rognet” from Clos de la Chapelle is outstanding, offering up great purity to go with the depth, power and aging potential of the very best 2015s. Readers may recall that these fifty year-old vines lie just above those of Jean-Nicolas Meo on the slope in the heart of this lieu a dit, which lies alongside of Bressandes and Renardes. As deep as all of the top premier crus were here in 2015, there is an extra element of profundity evident in the Rognet, but one will have to be patient to enjoy this wine at its zenith. The very promising bouquet offers up scents of black cherries, dark berries, roasted venison, dark chocolate, a superb base of soil, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tangy, with a rock solid core, impressive transparency, firm, ripe tannins, excellent focus and grip and a very long, poised and youthfully complex finish. This is going to be a long-distance runner par excellent, but once it is ready to drink, it is going to be pure magic."

Christian-Moreau-Chablis-Valmur-Double-Magnum-2008

Christian Moreau, Chablis ''Valmur'' Double Magnum, 2008

“Iris and musky peony along with white peach and grapefruit inform the seductive nose of Moreau’s 2008 Chablis Valmur, which offers a winning combination of richness and textural plushness with refreshment and levity, as well as a strong, chalky undertone that emerges especially in the wine’s long finish. High-toned, metaphorically cooling and soothing herbal impressions add to the allure of wafting inner-mouth floral perfume, while hints of huckleberry and juniper add piquant stimulation.” – Wine Advocate (92 points)

Hubert-Lamy-Saint-Aubin-Blanc-Frionnes-Double-Magnum-2015

Hubert Lamy, Saint Aubin Blanc ''Frionnes'' Double Magnum, 2015

Double Magnum Format Equivalent to 4 Regular Bottles
The 2015 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes has a complex bouquet with hints of white flowers intermingling with the citrus and stony aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, the acidity very nicely judged here and lending wonderful harmony and focus. It gently fans out on the finish with hints of greengage and citrus peel, completing a superb Saint-Aubin from Olivier Lamy. This comes recommended.

Trotanoy-Pomerol-Magnum-2014

Trotanoy, (Pomerol) Magnum, 2014

“The 2014 Trotanoy had (que surprise!) closed down on the nose compared to its JP Moueix stablemates. A few swirls of the glass and it reveals very precise, mineral-soaked black fruit laced with black truffle and subtle sous-bois aromas. It soon gathers momentum and the aromas were gaining more and more intensity after five minutes. The palate is outstanding. There is brilliant structure here, immense and almost staggering purity, incredible focus and tension with an electrifying spiciness on the finish. Best Pomerol of the vintage? The only thing wrong with that last sentence is the question mark at the end.”

Lanson-Clos-Lanson-Brut-Magnum-2006

Lanson, Clos Lanson Brut Magnum, 2006

“From the immured one-hectare vineyard on the top of the hill, which also harbors the cellar of Champagne Lanson that dates back into the 18th century, the 2006 Clos Lanson is 100% first press Chardonnay from a very fine, chalky soil. It was fermented and aged in Argonne oak until spring 2007 (no malolactic fermentation), and disgorged after seven and a half years on the lees in December 2014 as Brut Nature with a dosage of three grams per liter. This bright yellow-golden colored prestige Champagne offers a brilliant nose of pure and ripe Chardonnay, along with delicate chalky flavors. Full and round on the palate, with a nice freshness and purity, this is a very elegant and well-balanced Blanc de Blancs. it has an aromatic as well as clear, fresh and mineral finish. This very first release has a very good length and characteristic mineral taste, with iodine notes along with ripe fruit and vanilla brioche flavors in the finish. This is a great new entry in the Lanson portfolio and it will improve with age. Total production is 7,870 serially numbered bottles.”

Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Corton-Bressandes-Double-Magnum-2014

Clos de la Chapelle, Corton Bressandes Double Magnum, 2014

“The wine is dynamite, soaring from the glass in a blaze of red and black cherries, red currants, a touch of venison, coriander seed, a bit of bonfire, raw cocoa, stony soil tones and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full­bodied and nascently complex, with a very sappy core of fruit, lovely transparency, fine­grained tannins and a very long, tangy and promising finish. Great juice in the making. 2025­-2075.”
- John Gilman (95 points)

“Generous wood and menthol again suffuses the ripe and fresh nose that consists of dark cherry, earth, forest floor and soft sauvage nuances. There is really lovely delineation to the big-bodied and also overtly powerful flavors that possess a bit more refinement before concluding in a tautly muscular, focused and attractively textured finish that is serious but not really austere. This is even more structured than the Rognet and indisputably going to require an extended stay in a cool cellar. Patience!”

Juicy and pure on the palate, offering intense raspberry, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of blood orange. Delivers a serious payload of vibrant berry and spice character without excess weight, and finishes extremely long and nervy, displaying no rough edges and lingering florality.” – Vinous (94 points)
