2011 - Thibert Les Cras Pouilly Fuisse:
"The outstanding 2011 Pouilly-Fuisse Les Cras comes from three small plots that Christophe lamented possess exceptionally hard limestone soils. But the effort is worth it. The Les Cras has a very pretty, understated bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass with delicate lemon curd and apple-blossom scents. The palate shows entrancing balance, a silky smooth texture, effortless harmony. The wine builds in the mouth toward a succinct, lightly honeyed finish that will leave you wondering why you wasted all your money on Corton-Charlemagne all those years. Sell that and load up on this." (08/13) - 95 Pts Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2009 - Goubard Bourgogne Rouge Mont Avril:
"The 2009 Bourgogne Rouge Mont Avril (also aged in old oak) exhibits classic Pinot Noir characteristics of pomegranate, underbrush, herbs and tomato skins. While not terribly concentrated, it offers a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, inexpensive introduction to the world of Pinot Noir. Finding Burgundy for under $20 a bottle is virtually impossible, but Michel Goubard's offerings have long been staples of the Hand Picked Selection portfolio."

"From as far back as its presence known in Burgundy since the seventeenth century, the family Goubard has always been important in the production of Burgundy wines. At the heart of the Cote Chalonnaise, you can discover the gentle slopes of Mont Avril, as did Coutepee famous Burgundian writer, whom labels of the Domain honor. Winemakers from father to son, Michel now passes the baton to Pierre-Francois and Vincent. It is their responsibility now to continue the tradition of quality that has always prevailed in the area Goubard." - Winery
