"This is the smallest of the Gevrey grands crus, and it lies squeezed in between Charmes and Chapelle, just under the point where Chambertin meets Clos de Bèze." (- The Wines of Burgundy, Clive Coates, MW)
"The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Cuvée des Cigales has a deep blackcurrant and raspberry bouquet: reserved but delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a pleasant powdery texture, a lively acidic thread and fine backbone on the finish that has a pleasant savory touch. Very fine and full of character." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (12/29/2014, Issue 216), Rating: 89-91, Drink: 2016-2026
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
