Bouchard Père & Fils 2007 Les Cailles Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Nuits-St.-Georges)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $114

An already complete wine, the tannins well integrated into the firm black fruits and acidity. It is foursquare but also has a richness that comes from wood as well as lively final freshness.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2007 Clos Saint-Landry Premier Cru Chardonnay (Beaune)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $63

A lively, fresh wine that gives a steely, mineral edge to the ripe fruits and the crisp acidity. The wine fills the mouth, a bold streak of apple skin structure boosting the fresh fruits.

This is a great Meursault that’s full of round, ripe, generous fruit. It’s packed with yellow fruit and kiwi flavors. Revel in its richness. This wine comes from Bouchard’s own vines.

Bouchard Père & Fils 2006 Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $60

A big, round, generous wine with strawberry flavors that are ripe as well as soft. It is very approachable, its dense character coming from delicious fruits that pile layer upon layer on top of each other. It’s hard to find the acidity in all this plumpness, but it is there, and creates a fresh finish.

Boudreaux Cellars 2007 Champoux & Loess Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $100

Much in the style of Leonetti Cabernet, with the richness of Napa Valley fruit, this deeply satisfying, superripe wine is 100% varietal. Notes of cassis, fig and a hint of prune are swathed in deeper flavors of espresso and dark chocolate.

Boudreaux Cellars 2004 Syrah (Washington)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $40

This is a dark, dense and compelling Syrah, muscular and sleek. The deep boysenberry and blackberry fruit is set off with aromatic highlights—and flavors—of black olive, licorice and caramel. It’s smooth and weighty, with beautiful balance and moderate alcohol. The extra time in bottle has helped to integrate the acids and suggests that this wine has a long life ahead.

Bougetz 2012 Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $24

Lots of muscle in this punchy Sauvignon Blanc, with its ripe lemon, lime, orange and papaya flavors, made bright by crisp acidity. Despite a streak of honey, the finish is dry. Additional richness is provided by barrel fermentation and the addition of a little Sémillon.

Boundary Breaks 2012 Single Clone No. 239 Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20

Boundary Breaks has proven to be the break-out producer of the Finger Lakes this year with an excellent line up of wines, and this off-dry wine is amongst its best. Elegantly perfumed with notes of fresh green florals and herbs, it builds in power and expression on the palate with pristine white peach flavors pierced with lime acidity and a reverberating mineral finish.
