97+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Run Rig offers a nose of baked cherries and raspberry preserves with suggestions of violets, cinnamon toast, aniseed and vanilla. Full-bodied with characteristic elegance and poise in spite almost of its power, it has a solid backbone of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with great length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Jun 2015)

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"RunRig is always complex, and the 2012 doesn't disappoint in that regard, mixing bacony-meaty notes with hints of black olives and ripe plums. The tannins are supremely supple, but the acids are crisp, resulting in a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now–2030." JC (10/01/16)

92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage):

"The 2016 Chardonnay from Dance is very good, wafting from the glass with youthful aromas of citrus zest, lemon curd and pastry cream. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with an attractively textural attack, racy acids and a long, saline, even stony finish. It's an impressive Chardonnay that should develop nicely for the better part of a decade. Note that part of Dance's 2016 vintage was given extended sur lie élevage, and I'll be reporting on that exciting new cuvée shortly." - William Kelley (29th Jun 2018)

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"More cassis, cedary spice, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2015 Red Wine Chester Kidder. It's medium to full-bodied, beautifully complex, and layered, with more upfront charm and approachability than most 2015s. Nevertheless, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 15% Petit Verdot that spent a full 30 months in oak, hats off to winemaker Gilles Nicault for another terrific vintage for this wine." - Jeb Dunnuck (4/11/2019)

Retail Price: $1,290.00

99 Points & #10 Top 100 of 2007 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A powerful, majestic Champagne. Deep and compelling, with aromas of whole-grain toast, coconut and dried citrus that draw you in. Lean and racy on the palate, with a creaminess that's yet to be integrated. A classic '96, with ripe, exotic aromas and a steely structure. Still a baby, with the long, resonant finish confirming its potential. Best from 2009 through 2040. 10,000 cases made." — BS (July 2007)

94-96 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2017 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a very expressive, complex bouquet, the mélange of red, blue and black fruit making it difficult to identify a single dominant color. Blueberry, wild strawberry and black currant intermingle, and hints of sea spray and touches of orange blossom develop with time. The harmonious, silky palate is almost like a Romanée-Saint-Vivant in texture, offering great depth and an energetic, peppery finish that lingers long in the mouth. A divine Musigny that will deserve some bottle age." - Neal Martin (Jan 2019)

95 Points - James Suckling:
"This has a rather reserved nose with dried-herb, rosehip, potpourri and light cedary aromas, ahead of fragrant dried cherries. The palate has quite dense and smoothly rendered, ripe tannins that deliver a long, composed and approachable Barolo. Drink or hold. " - (7 Jan, 2019)

96 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a very youthful Barolo that has attractive, fragrant perfume with freshly picked roasting herbs and a strong, central thread of ripe cherries and red plums. The pure and concentrated palate frames intense plum and cherry flavors in long, unwavering tannins that deliver rich, strong and seamless into the finish. Exceptional quality and built for aging. Try from 2025." - (7 Jan, 2019)

95 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2015 Barolo Ravera is once again the head of the class at Vietti. Bright, sculpted and wonderfully nuanced, the Ravera is very pretty. Floral aromatics and the pointed, brilliant fruit that is such a Ravera signature are very much in evidence. Hints of blood orange, mint, crushed rocks and flowers add shades of complexity as the 2015 gradually opens up in the glass. This is one of the finer wines of the year. Don't miss it!" - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2019)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"A hauntingly complex and finely detailed nose that touches so many different characters. Roses, dried wood, cedar, fine brown spices, light earthy notes, warm stones, mountain herbs and leaves. All here – very complex. The density and weight is exceptional, as is the fine, firm weave of tannins. The length is staggering and the tautness and balance are captivating. One of the stars of the vintage! Try from 2025." - (7 Jan, 2019)
