95 Pt. Premier Cru Champagne Brut NV Nicolas Maillart Platine

The Maillart winemaking family goes back nine generations, and their historic knowledge of the Champagne soil and production method positions them among the most capable vintners in the region. This Pinot Noir-dominant sparkler is sourced exclusively from Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, which give so much concentration and richness to every effervescent sip. A generous inclusion of reserve wine offers even more depth and complex notes of maturity to the blend - this will make for an indulgent pairing with oysters and other fresh shellfish.

Champagne Premier Cru Platine Brut
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier

Pinot Noir is dominant, with a complement of Chardonnay that brings freshness to the blend. The high percentage of reserve wines (30-40%), aged in barrels, confers a high regularity and style to this Brut Platine. Only Grand and Premiers Crus are used in this wine, with origins in the Montagne de Reims, from vineyards managed by us. With a very gentle process, we keep all the richness of the grapes. Aged around three years on its lees, this Brut Platine develops all its richness. A natural balance and freshness allow a low dosage.

Tasting Note
Appearance: Golden in colour with a fine, lingering bead.
Aroma: Intense with notes of fruit and hazelnuts and a slight toastiness.
Taste: The initial impact is wonderfully fresh and vinous, followed by great finesse.
Food and Wine: Aperitif, white fish like haddock or cod.

ME: Opulent and finessed.
SF: Fulsome colour and temperamentally big-boned, this is an impressive example. The six grams of residual sugar finely knit into a texture of ripe, red-berried fruit. The finish has an ethereal poise, brought down to earth by just a hint of spice.
TH: Immediately vital in the mouth. Very chewy and demanding, a serious Champagne but pretty exciting. Citrus character but with complex fruit and a pretty lingering finish. I like this!

Honeycrisp apple, orchard blossom and spun honey notes are ripe and aromatic in this finely knit Champagne, framed by mouthwatering acidity and a tang of salinity. Creamy, with rich hints of toasted almond and smoke on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2020. -AN

With vines on the Montagne de Reims, this producer has a good line in Pinot Noir. The wine is rich while well balanced and ripe. Now with just the right amount of bottle aging, it is full in the mouth, showing attractive apple and ripe pear flavors. The aftertaste is soft and fresh.

Sparkling White wine from France
Light yellow-gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of Meyer lemon, blood orange, jasmine and green tea; smells like there's more Chardonnay in here. Taut and sharply focused, offering crackling citrus fruit and underripe pear flavors that put on weight with air. Finishes energetic and dry, with suave floral and chalky mineral qualities. -Josh Raynolds, January 2015

Mid straw. Really dense and throbbing. Much less austere than most. Flattering without being sweet. Good length. GV?

Pure and fresh on the nose, with nutty and toasty flavors, this is an elegant, nicely lean and fruity as well as very stimulating Brut to be served as an aperitif. The finish is tight, fresh and pretty long. Tasted in April 2018.

Top Fall Wines for 2019

by Rob Withrow | October 16, 2019 | Wine 101

There are more than 7,700 wineries across the United States. But which wines should you be enjoying this fall?

Premier Online Wine Shop

Top Quality Wines at Flash Sale Prices

Welcome to Wines 'Til Sold Out! Whether you are a returning member or coming across WTSO for the first time, you've come to the right online wine shop for flash wine sales that will change the way you shop for your wine.

Who We Are

Since our beginnings a decade ago, our online wine store's membership base and service area have grown, but our goal has always been the same: to let our members experience the world's best wine at inexpensive prices. To achieve this, our flash wine sales feature only top wines selected by our team, all at inexpensive, discounted prices.

Over the years, WTSO has made connections with many of the greatest wine sellers, winemakers, and distributors in the world, allowing us to cultivate an unmatched online product selection and pass on significant savings to our members. We are delighted to be able to provide our members with our favorite wines, from the best French White Bordeaux to sweet American Cabernet Sauvignon to that dry yet easy-drinking Italian Chianti wine.

How It Works

WTSO is proud to do business with hundreds of wineries and distributors online, and we are always looking for new brands to feature on our website. Each bottle that we offer is hand-picked with careful consideration toward every aspect of the wine. Once we have chosen a wine that meets the standards that our members have come to expect, we queue it to be featured for sale in our online wine store.

The bottle will then become part of a flash wine sale, wherein we offer that specific bottle for a limited period of time or until it is gone. Due to the high quality and sometimes rare nature of the wines we offer, wine deals online can last as little as one or two hours before selling out.

Regardless of what kind of wine you buy, you can count on free shipping from WTSO with minimum purchase. We guarantee safe and secure wine distribution and mailing methods so that no matter the size of your order, you can rest assured your purchase will arrive fully intact and ready to enjoy.

Commitment to Quality

A large part of what has made WTSO one of the world's most popular online wine stores retailers of wine is our unwavering commitment to the quality of the products that we sell.

Deciding which wines to feature in our shop is no simple task. As part of our company policy, we would never offer any brand or product that we would not happily drink ourselves. That's why we carefully deliberate over each bottle and select only products we truly feel are good enough to be featured for sale on our site.

It is this dedication to quality that keeps our members coming back week after week and bottle after bottle. With a strong emphasis on finding some of the most unique and sought-after wines available, WTSO's wine retailers guarantee that you will never be disappointed with the product you receive.

Bonus Offers & Marathons

Bonus Offers

In addition to our current featured offer, WTSO gives members an opportunity to receive extra wine delivery gifts from a hand-selected collection of wines. These inexpensive offers involve a themed group of wines that are grouped together by our team of experts specifically for your enjoyment. They're great for expanding your palate or for when you're gift-shopping.

Since the offer changes approximately once a month, you might find a bonus offer for sparkling wines one month, a group of sweet Italian white wines the next, and wines from a single vintage the month after that. Just like our ongoing current offer, these bonus wines are available to buy at discounted prices.

Marathons

We are always excited to offer WTSO Marathon Days, a fan favorite among members. While we provide our members with the top deals on quality wine every day of the year, we also hold occasional flash sale Marathons, where we typically sell out of over 70 wines in one day.

Each Marathon features various types of wine, from French and Italian favorites to new American varietals of white wine, and includes our company-wide offer of free shipping with minimum purchase.

When it comes to WTSO Marathons, however, it is important to act fast. Each wine variety tends to sell out within 15 minutes or less! To keep an eye out for our next Marathon Day, subscribe to our newsletter.

Weekly Tasting
Wine tasting sets wine paring

Yet another popular deal from WTSO allows you to taste different wines every single week - for just $39.99-99.99 per order. When you sign up for Weekly Tasting, you will receive the week's tasting set of four different bottles, with no added shipping cost.

Not only are our wine deals online a good way to broaden your knowledge and wine-tasting palate, but they can also inspire social gatherings that may quickly become the highlight of your entire week. And don't worry if you don't know your dry Italian Cabernet Sauvignon wine from your sparkling Beaujolais wine, or your wine vintages from your varietals — each tasting set comes with educational material so you can learn while you enjoy each bottle!

Each set is themed by origin or varietal. When you shop for our wine online, you can learn more about almost any type, including:

  • French wines
  • Italian wines
  • Red wine
  • White wine

And it doesn't stop there. One of the things you can rely on with these wine sets is variety. On one week you could look forward to receiving French white wine and Italian red wine. And as you order each new pack, you could expect sweet white wine and a crisp rosé. The possibilities are endless; and you can't find such combinations at just any wine store.
