    “…one of the world’s greatest Pinot Noir
             Houses…” Northwest Palate


   “Ken Wright is engaging and passionate about Pinot Noir and an
   indefatigable champion of its Oregonian editions. He is also almost
   an icon among its many producers, having created, from scratch, no
   less than three brands of persistently high reputation: Panther Creek,
   Domaine Serene, and Ken Wright Cellars. At one point when Wright
   was the winemaker for both Domaine Serene and Ken Wright Cellars,
   those houses (which then cohabited) were simultaneously Robert M.
   Parker’s choices for Oregon’s two outstanding producers of Pinot Noir.”

 Tokaji Aszu—Aszu is the term for grapes infected with noble rot. Destalked hand-picked Aszu grapes are stored 6-8 days, then kneaded to a pulp which is
 added to base Tokay wine, or to must, by the puttony (hod of 20-25 kilos). The eventual sweetness depends on the number of puttonyos added to the 136-140
 litre barrels (called Gorci) of one-year-old base wine - usually 3,4 and 5 puttonyos. 6 is exceptional.
 Tokaji Aszu Essencia—Only individually hand-selected Aszu grapes. Only produced in exceptional years from the best vineyards.
 Tokaji Essence—Destalked hand-picked Aszu grapes. While grapes are being stored (see Tokay Aszu) the pressure of their own weight the tub (one put-
 tonyo yields only 142 millimeters of this Essence). The juice is then allowed to ferment extremely slowly for many years in oak casks.

                                                        “The quality displayed today proves Christophe Perrot-Minot is impressive. His wines, rich,
                                                    dense, exuberant and intensely perfumed evoke the most beautiful successes of Henri Jayer. The
                                                    production comes from three sources: vines of the family domaine, resulting from the division of the
                                                    domaine Merme (Charmes and Mazoyères-Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis Village and Premier Cru,
                                                    Nuits-Saints Georges La Richemone) and finally from leases vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin. All his
                                                    cuvèes have the sam e style and benefit from the same attention.
                                                        Thanks to the work sorting on triage tables in 2004, Christophe Perrot-Minot produced a series of
                                                    wines that are among the most accomplished of the year. A tour de force illustrated by the two cuvées
                                                    of Richemone, of which the depth and the precision in the mouth place them on the level of grand
                                                    Cru. A level of success is found whether from Morey-Saint-Denis or Chambolle-Musigny, with silky
                                                    texture and admirable precision of fruit. Du grand art.” 2007 La Revue du Vin de France

                                 Brilliant White Bordeaux

     “Denis Dubourdieu                    is a familiar figure around Bordeaux. In addition to his research lab, he runs his family’s
     wine estates, and advises many other properties. Dubourdieu is a slight figure, often glimpsed with his spectacles pushed onto the
     bridge of his nose, and with his eyebrows slightly raised in a look of perpetual amused skepticism.
          He is renowned for his research into white wine vinification. He explained and advocated the process of skin contact for white
     grapes before pressing; and elucidated the function of lees-stirring (bâtonnage) during the barrel aging of white wines
          As owner, or co-owner, of a number of properties, the success of his methods is put to the test with every vintage. His
     wife Florence inherited Château Reynon in Béguey, where he has made the wine since 1977; in 1982 they jointly founded Clos
     Floridéne in the Graves, and in 2000 he took over the management of his father Pierre’s celebrated Barsac property, Doisy-Daëne.”

     2005 Clos Floridene Blanc ............................................................................................................................................... 29.99
     “A brilliant dry white from proprietor Professor Denis Dubourdieu, the 2005 Clos Floridene exhibits abundant amounts of honeysuckle along with hints of orange
     rind and honeyed grapefruit. Medium-bodied with a long finish, it should drink well for 5-7 years.” Robert Parker

     2004 Clos Floridene Blanc ............................................................................................................................................... 24.99
     “One of several estates owned by Denis Dubourdieu, Clos Floridene produces an insider’s wine. Why? It is far less expensive than most of the more prestigious, well-
     known Graves wines. A blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc from vines planted on limestone soil, this is a wonderfully rich, hedonistic style of white
     Graves that is loaded with fruit. It is best drunk within its first 3-4 years of life.” Robert Parker
     “Bordeaux’s ‘Mr. White Wine,’ Denis Dubourdieu, owns this estate that consistently turns out one of the finest dry whites.” Robert Parker

     2003 Clos Floridene Blanc ............................................................................................................................................... 22.99
     2005 Chateau Reynon Blanc Vieilles Vignes .................................................................................................................... 17.99
     The first arrival from the 2005 Bordeaux vintage is the Sauvignon Blanc—crisp, with notes of grapefruit and lemon, and a nice long finish. May be the best ever
     from this property!

Valley Properties
        Chateau de Chamboureau
  Château de Chamboreau is a 15 acre vineyard in the apellation Roche aux
  Moines. It is situated to the east of Coulée de Serrant, one of the presti-
  gious classified growths of Savennières. La Roche aux Moines is situated in
  a very significant spot in the Loire Valley - on the local shist veined with volcanic rock. The Château
  de Chamboreau vineyard is planted with vines more than 50 years old. Like his predecessors, Pierre
  Soulex is committed to producing wines that emphasize the dry, smokey and flinty character of the
  best Savennières. He severely cut back the vines to reduce yields, harvest as late as possible (among
  the last of Savennières’ vignerons), and does extended élevages to extract richness from the lees.

                                           Jay Latham, one of Martine’s sales reps, sent us a copy of his enthusiastic email report to his customers upon
                                           trying it…
“I am tasting the Maison Leroy 1996 Mazis-Chambertin right now and it is ridiculous. It is full of power with a huge bouquet - lots of dark cherry,
coffee and cold smoke. Every bottle from the extensive Leroy Cellar collection is its own adventure. A more apt word would be discovery. You never
know how the story will unfold and the plot twists are always surprising. And it is always memorable, in great part because of the aura of mystique
that surrounds the treasures in Lalou’s cellar. The secrets revealed in each bottle is no less than a peek in one of Burgundies most storied and guarded
vaults. It is with this anticipation that we were introduced to the 1996 Mazis-Chambertin. Honestly, the standard has been set so high with such
wines as the ‘64 Grands Echezeaux, ’62 la Romanee and ’66 Corton so recent in our memories and on our palates that this infant wine would be hard
pressed just to keep its place at the table in such company. The Mazis-Chambertin not only lived up to its brethren it soon took the stage as its own.
I can honestly say I have never known so much pleasure as a more youthful version - the lively, bouyant prince compared to the wise, seasoned King.
It is one of the more intriguing grand crus of the village because it so adeptly balances its taught, austere minerality with a feral, sauvage character that
is so often the defining characteristic of Gevrey-Chambertin. Notes of dark cherry, espresso chaff and fur are quickly followed by smoked oolong tea,
beef marrow and iron ore. The minerality that is so definitive of the part of village from which Mazis springs is coyly hidden in the steely structure

                                                                                                                      $
                                                                                                                          299                                 99
that frames all the character. Many self-appointed critics will tell you that 1996s are unapproachable and
dormant. Lalou seems to have known that this Mazis-Chambertin had awoken from its slumber and has
let us in on this treasured secret.”

                                                                Moraiolo and Leccino.

                                                                In 2004, the olives were harvested by hand at an early stage of ripening; between the 20th October
                                                                and the 30th November, in order to capture the freshness and fruitiness of the aromatics, while
                                                                ensuring consistency and body of flavor.
                                                                Once harvested, the olives were transported to the olive oil mill where they were immediately cold
                                                                crushed. This ensured that there was no risk of oxidation and that the acidity levels were controlled.
                                                                The crushed olives were then processed at a controlled temperature (never exceeding 15°C).

       “We are always surprised at this winery’s successes with Pinot in a place far
       more noted for Cabernet Sauvignon, but success, it seems, follows success
       and El Molino hits a home run yet again. Plump and polished and very well                  “…El Molino has succeeded in producing a wine of real substance and style. It
       filled with lots of ripe, black-cherry fruit, the wine is decked out with an               shows fine pear, apple and nut bread flavors, along with a figgy, raisiny quality,
       abundance of very sweet oak and has plenty of flesh and a fine velvety feel.               and has good enough acidity for balance. The finish is very dry. This complex
       It is on the full-bodied side, and its ripeness brings a bit of heat to the finish,        wine should age well over the next five years.” Wine Enthusiast, rated 92/100
       but the fruit that is everywhere fights on through at the end and fires real
       hopes that this one might even be better after a few years have passed. June               “Very highly recommended.” , rated 90/100

“If only all Pinot Grigios were so delicious.” Wine Spectator
 “Palmina (is) made by Steve Clifton, part of the brilliant duo of Brewer-Clifton. He has worked in Italy, studying the
finest producers in the northeast sector of that country, and stands alone in California as being able to translate the fragile
yet ethereal character of Nebbiolo and Sangiovese, not to mention some brilliant stainless steel fermented aged whites,
into wines of considerable class and interest. Why Clifton has been able to achieve such success while others have failed
is another story altogether, but his wines merit significant attention… At present, Palmina is the only reference point for
what can be achieved in California with Italian varietals, hats off to Steve Clifton!” Robert Parker
“The finest Italian varietal dry whites in the country are made by Steve Clifton under
the Palmina label. It is amazing what he is able to achieve with these varietals, and if readers haven’t tasted them,
it is well-worth getting on the winery’s mailing list as they are all crisp, stainless steel-fermented and aged dry whites that
rank alongside the best from northeast Italy.” Robert Parker

“The 2005 Traminer Alisos Vineyard actually smells like a Gewurztraminer, offering up notions of mint, rose petals, litchi nuts, and tropical fruits. Medium-bodied,
elegant, and dry, it should be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years.” Robert Parker, rated 87/100
2005 Tocai Friulano Honea Vyd ......................................................................................................................................... 21.99
“A knock-out bouquet of lemon rind, tropical fruit, and honey characterizes the 2005 Tocai Fruilano Honea Vineyard. This fruity, dry, medium-bodied, pure, zesty
Tocai should be consumed over the next 1-2 years.” Robert Parker, rated 90/100
2005 Malvasia Bianca Larner Vyd ....................................................................................................................................... 23.99
“For my palate, the star of these whites is the 2005 Malvasia Bianca Larner Vineyard. It offers oodles of fruit along with hints of marzipan, minerals, and flowers pre-
sented in a dry, crisp, steely format. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.” Robert Parker, rated 91/100

          his game…David Ramey,
          who boasts an impressive
          resumé having worked during
          the long-gone glory days of
          Matanzas Creek, then moving
          on to Chalk Hill, Dominus,
          and Rudd Estate, has his own
          warehouse on the back streets
          of Healdsburg. It’s his and only
          his, and he is now turning out
          15,000 cases of seriously high
          quality wine, including four
          Chardonnay cuvées, and three
          red offerings. While prices are
          not cheap, they are realistic as
          purchasers get luscious mouth-
          fuls of top-notch juice. Ramey
          reveals a disarming modesty,
          but he is as serious as they
          come. All of these unfiltered
          offerings represent tremendous
          expressions of their vineyard

JaCQues seysses, PrOPrietOr & Winemaker



  “Look To Dujac for Burgundy Epiphany…
  I am no expert on Burgundy, but I know great Burgundy when I find it. Domaine de la Romanee Conti, Comte de Vogue, Leroy,
  Rousseau, and others have their following, but Dujac really makes my taste buds stand erect. I have sat in on several Burgundy
  tastings over the last year, and every time, it is a Dujac wine that is the diva. In the puzzling and confusing maize of Burgundy
  producers, Dujac is one domaine that you can single out as a consistent star whose wines, although difficult to come by and not
  inexpensive, are priced sensibly considering the quality.” Pinot File

                              2005
                 Bordeaux
                 Futures
      Robert Parker, in his Wine Advocate, Issue #164, says of the 2005 vintage:
      “I have never tasted so many extraordinarily rich, concentrated, massive wines so high in
      tannin and extract, yet with such precision, definition, and freshness. It is clearly a singular


                                                                                                                  the word is out
      vintage that should evolve into one of the great vintages of Bordeaux. However, it seems
      premature and risky to conclude so soon that the finest wines of 2005 are superior to the
      best of 2003, especially the northern Médocs, or the best wines of 2000, 1998 (for Pomerol
      and St.-Emilion), 1990, or the most profound 1989s and 1982s. Only time will prove the


                                                                                                                    on the 2005
      true quality of 2005, but it is beginning life as an extraordinary as well as remarkably con-
      sistent vintage.”

       This is from a man that has set the reference point reviews for Bordeaux for well over
      twenty years! Comparisons are being made to the best vintages of the past century---2000,
      1990, 1982, 1959, and 1949. This is not a vintage to miss out on!

          The 10-acre Aile d’Argent vineyard, situated on the Château Mouton Rothschild estate, consists of three separate parcels charac-
          terized by sandy, gravelly soil. The mix of classic Bordeaux grape varieties is adapted to the characteristics of each parcel. Semillon
          accounts for 47% of the total, Sauvignon Blanc for 51% and Muscadelle for 2%. The average age of the vines is 13 years, and
          the vineyard density is 8500 vines per hectare. Traditional methods are used to cultivate the vines and the vineyard is grassed.
          Harvested by hand, the grapes are sorted on the vine and collected in small open baskets, as for Château Mouton Rothschild.
          Depending on the vintage and the grape variety, the grapes are either pressed directly into a vertical press (60%) or macerated
          on their sides prior to pressing and fermentation (40%). This allows the chosen grapes to fully express their aromatic potential.
          The must is chilled to between 8 and 10 C and slowly begins to ferment in stainless steel vats where the temperature is kept
          constantly below 18 C. When half-fermented, the Semillon and Sauvignon musts are transferred to oak barrels (50% new, 50%
          one year old). Fermentation continues, and may last for several weeks. The maturing process then begins. The wine is left on
          fine lees to nourish it and give it roundness, length and complexity. After the different varieties have been blended, the wine is

          bottled during the autumn following the harvest.
          Annual production is approximately 10,000 bottles.
          Aile d’Argent is made with a view to ageing and will keep for 5 to 10 years, or 10-15 years for the best vintages.

                         “Flanked by firm tannins, this one has a rich core of licorice-scented cherry and raspberry fruit that sails through the
                         long, shapely finish. A classically structured wine that has lovely flavors and miles to go. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and
                         Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2013. 540 cases made.”

                         “Savory, almost brooding scents of raspberry leaf and black currant complement intense ripe flavors of toasty oak, plum,
                         and currant fruit. Round, well balanced, layered, and long on the finish. Cellaring will add depth, or drink now with a
                         beef daube. (540 cases made; 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc.)” Northwest Palate
                         “Intense and sappy, this focused and brilliant young wine tastes like condensed berry juice. Despite it’s raw power, it
                         retains a sleek, elegant mouthfeel, like a ride in an especially well-built sports car.” Wine Enthusiast, rated 92/100

                         with the concentration of strawberry preserves. A bit of heat, and the massive tannins that are typical from Klipsun vine-
                         yard fruit.” Wine Enthusiast, rated 90/100

                         and refined tannins. A seductive wine with real backbone to carry it through. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
                         Best from 2007 through 2013. 250 cases made.” Wine Spectator, rated 93/100
                         “The winery’s selection of its best barrels makes a fascinating wine, showing mixed Asian spices, supple fruit and beautiful
                         fine-grained tannins. Muscular and detailed, it has a bit of an alcoholic kick to the finish. Powerful and very well-crafted.”

 2003 Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red (California) ..........................................119.99
 “The 2003 Proprietary Red (86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit
 Verdot, and Malbec, aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels) is a killer. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a
 big, smoky, fragrant nose of crème de cassis, smoked meats, plum, and licorice, it boasts great intensity, rich,
 full-bodied, powerful flavors, decent acidity, moderate tannin, and tremendous persistence. It has put on
 weight since I tasted it last year out of barrel, and should drink well for 15 or more years.” Robert Parker,

 “Tasted from the barrel, this is a great vintage for Togni. Inky/blue/purple-colored with a glorious perfume
 of crème de cassis, licorice, graphite, and a hint of black olives, it is full-bodied and rich with silky tannins.
 Those tannins give it more accessibility than most young Togni cabs.” Robert Parker, rated 95/100

       Parker predicts the Future For Wine — september 7th, 2004: robert m. Parker, Jr., the world’s foremost wine guru, makes 12 bold predictuions about
       seismic changes that will influence how we’ll shop, what we’ll buy and how much we’ll pay.

       spain Will Be the star: look for spain to continue to soar. today it is emerging as a leader in wine quality and creativity, combining the finest charac-
       teristics of tradition with a modern and progressive winemaking philosophy. spain, just coming out of a long period of cooperative winemaking that val-
       ued quantity over quality, has begun to recognize that it possesses many old-vine vineyards with almost unlimited potential. spanish wineries recognizes
       that they are trapped neither by history nor by the need to maintain the status quo that currently frustrates and inhibits so many French producers. By
       2015, those areas that have assumed second place behind such up-and-coming regions as toro, Jumilla and Priorat.

   Terms:     ALL WINES ARE SOLD IN MISSOURI AND TITLE PASSES TO THE BUYER IN MISSOURI. We make no representation to the legal rights of anyone to
   ship or import alcoholic beverages into any state outside of Missouri. The buyer is solely responsible for shipment of wines. By placing this order with your credit card, check
   or cash, you authorize Brown Derby to act on your behalf in processing and shipping this order, including engaging a common carrier to deliver your order. WINES MAY BE
   SOLD AND DELIVERED ONLY TO PERSONS WHO ARE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD AND IN PLACING YOUR ORDER, YOU REPRESENT TO US THAT
   YOU ARE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD AND THE PERSON TO WHOM DELIVERY WILL BE MADE IS AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD. When your alcoholic beverages
   are delivered, the person receiving delivery will be required to show identification proving that he or she is at least 21 years old. All sales are subject to applicable Missouri
   state and any city sales taxes. All wines listed in this catalog are subject to availability. However, fine wines are not produced on a large scale. Many vintage wines are limited
   in availability and, when they go out of stock, are usually not replaceable. New vintages and other similar wines replace those that are no longer available. All of our wines are
   stored in a climate-controlled environment, and we take great care in checking the condition of the wine we purchase. However, as is tradition in the wine trade, all bottles
   over 10 years old, are at the buyer’s risk. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but in the event of a misprint, the price posted in the store will prevail.
   Delivery: We use several ground carriers. For a normal ground shipment, allow 8 to 10 days to receive your order after it has been processed. Ground Rates are better for six
   or more cases shipped to one location. Please inquire about rates for all shipments, as they are based on weight and delivery location. Affordable Second Day Air services and
   Next Day Air services are available anywhere in the continental U.S. We can-
   not ship to a Post Office Box. On all residential deliveries, there will be a $2.00
   upcharge. The purchaser is responsible for the claim of damage or loss once the                                                                                   Prsrt stD

   that claims are difficult due to the myriad of alcohol transport regulations. We
   reserve the right to hold wine orders up to 90 days before shipping as a quality
   control measure. Wine can be damaged by temperature extremes. We will not
   ship if the temperature in our area is above 75 degrees or below 40 degrees. It is
   your responsibility to advise us what temperatures are in your area. We cannot
   be held responsible if you request shipment and the wines travel in a climate
   outside an acceptable temperature range. We will hold and store wine purchases
   up to 30 days. After that time a $3.00 per case per month charge will be auto-
   matically assessed. Any cancellations are subject to a 10 percent restocking pen-
   alty. Occasionally, irreplaceable bottles will be broken in shipment or somehow
   mishandled in the delivery system to us. In the event any wines do not arrive,
   or are damaged in shipment to us, or are damaged by us prior to shipment to
   you, we will make every effort to substitute, subject to your approval, wines of
   equivalent value. Should we be unable to make an acceptable substitution, we
   will then refund your payment together with 5 percent simple interest.
