Catherine Riss 2018 Alsace De Gres ou de Force (Riesling)

A fantastic dry Riesling from Catherine Riss, arguably the hardest working woman in Alsace! Intense lime and lime blossom notes on the nose, with a perfect balance between density and acidity. Medium weight with stone fruit on palate and almost a bit of fat. Still mineral as ever with wild herbs in finish.   -Eben

Catherine Riss 2018 Alsace Dessous de Table (Auxerrois/Sylvaner)

60% Pinot Auxerrois/40% Sylvaner. Honeydew Melon, stone fruit, white flowers on the nose. Though a touch volatile at first, it blows off after about 15 minutes. Lemon-curd and hay notes on the palate. Though overall a relatively soft wine, there's a precise mineral side coming from the sandstone soils that lends a long dry finish to the wine.  -Eben

Enderle & Moll 2018 Baden Weißburgunder 'Muschelkalk'

Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) organically grown on shell limestone soils. Slightly reductive upon opening with a hint of chalky stone, the palate boasts a lush body and mineral balance, savory spice and bitter almond buoyed by juicy, ripe pears and lively energy on the finish. A wine to open with an assortment of cheeses, roasted chicken and root vegetables, brandade with a side of sautéed hearty greens. Cari Bernard

Sorry, the Following have Already Sold

Foulards Rouges 2019 Vin de France Les Glaneurs

Les Foulards Rouges "Glaneurs" comes from a single vineyard planted in 1970. It  is  100%  Grenache grown on  the decomposed granite hillside, giving yields of 15 hl/ha. The name is a tribute to a French documentary made by Agnès Varda,"Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse" ("The Gleanears and I" in the US.)  Hand-harvested, the grapes are chilled on arrival, then vinified 50% de-stemmed, 50% in whole-cluster carbonic, both macerated for 3 weeks with wild yeasts. The free run and press juices are blended, then the wine is aged for 6 months in used barels before being bottled by hand without any fining, filtration or SO2. This is the most aromatic Grenache of the line up right now, with heady red and purple flower, pink peppercorn-strawberry jam, vine peach, darjeeling tea and much more. On the palate, consider it a Beaujolais of the south. You pick up some aromas from the carbonic maceration - strawberry, a little varnish - but then it is all about rhubarb marmalade, tangerine zest, dates, Mediterranean spices. It is tarter and a little dirtier on the finish, but over a week the palate cleaned and softened up. The tannins are ripe and gentle. Keep it 2-3 years or enjoy today slightly chilled in a medium-sized glass with a beet, arugula and hazelnut salad with raspberry vinegar dressing or a black lentils stew with Lebanese spices. 100% Grenache. Pascaline Lepeltier.

Foulards Rouges 2019 Vin de France Grenache V V

2019 Foulards Rouges Grenache, written in Arabic, is from a parcel of 100 year-old head-pruned vines on sandy gravel soils over granite. Hand-haversted,  the grapes are chilled on arrival,  macerated  whole-cluster at 15C temperature in tank without pigeage nor remontage in order to preserve the freshness.  Free-run and press juices are blended than aged in 500 liters barrels (used) before being bottled by hand beginning of Spring without any SO2 addition. The Arabic spelling was made by Jean-François's mom who started to learn the language: he found it beautiful and thought it was a great way to name this cuvée. On the nose, this cuvée is the most open and exuberant, with intense sun-kissed pomegranate, rose and lilac aromas, combined with sweeter, salted caramel hints, and a touch of raspberry preserve. The palate is rounder and softer, with upfront strawberry, red cherry marmalade and red plum. The oak is felt a little more than usual on this vintage with soft Bourbon vanilla hints. Acidity is there, just hidden now behind the flesh. The finish is on sapid, licorice like tannins. If you can give this wine 1 or 2 months it will come together no doubt. Otherwise pair it with smoked pork short ribs or an eggplant ragout seasoned with Moroccan spice, with a quick decant, served in a medium-size glass around 16-18C. 100% Grenache. Pascaline Lepeltier.

Catherine Riss 2017 Alsace Pinot Noir Empriente

Always a treat, Catherine Riss' Pinot Noir is here in tiny quantity. The nose shuffles between blueberry fruit, candle wick/gunpowder, and brambly crushed berries. A very mineral Pinot, from sandstone soils. Two weeks whole cluster maceration with daily pump over, bottled without filtration or added SO2.    EL

Baudry 2015 Chinon La Croix Boissée

From a small parcel of sandy clay over limestone (calcaire micacé) on a south-facing slope above Cravant. 24 months of aging in 1 to 4 year-old Burgundy barriques. (Over the years, the Baudrys have moved to a more gentle extraction on this wine and have lengthened the barrel aging, never in new oak.) This is one of the greatest reds of the Loire Valley - at it's best after ten to twenty years of aging, the wine is also quite delicious, though with firm chalky tannins, when young. The 2015 is a bit softer and more immediately enjoyable than the 2014, but it's a superb "Croix Boissée" that was sensational out of barrel when tasted in February of 2016 and 2017. Tasted from bottle on arrival in NY, the wine shows a deep red/black color and lush aromas of blackberry and strawberry, with black pepper, rose, citrus, roast meat and earth - quite ripe but with nice brightness. The palate is a bit closed but showing real elegance of blackberry and red currant fruit, floral and balanced, with a dense core of mineral flavors and cool acidity. The finish is long and elegant with pure red fruits and firm structure. Decant if drinking now, best 2024 - 2040+  David Lillie

Baudry 2016 Chinon Croix Boissée Blanc

From a tiny parcel in La Croix Boissée, with 15 to 25 year-old Chenin vines on thin sandy clay soils over limestone. Slow fermentation in 500 liter tonneaux until "sec" - under 2 grams per liter of residual sugar. The 2016 shows aromas of green pear, citrus, almond, lime-flower and stone, more subtle than the riper 2015. The palate is dry and elegant with almond and white fruit flavors backed with firm acidity and mineral flavors. This is an stylish young Chenin Blanc that will accompany any mild-flavored seafood dish, or cellar ten to fifteen years for a more complex experience.  David Lillie

Baudry 2017 Chinon Croix Boissée Blanc

This rare and beautiful Chenin Blanc is from the top of the "Croix Boissée" parcel on eroded limestone. The wine ferments very slowly in 500 liter toneaux until dry - less than 2 g/l residual sugar. The 2017 Croix Blanc is superbly elegant with aromas of pear, white peach, almond and lime-flower. The palate is supple, with lovely ripe fruit, but also shows firm acidity and chalky minerals. Delicious now, but ten to fifteen years of aging will be very interesting. Serve with  fish or chicken in sauce and a wide variety of cheeses. David Lillie

Enderle and Moll 2018 Baden Pinot Noir 'Liaison'

'Liaison' is from 45 to 50-year-old vines planted on both Muschelkalk (shell limestone) and Buntsandstein (colored sandstone) and is a beautiful example of the elegant coupling of these two terroirs. Stephen Bitterolf of Vom Boden (the US importer of Enderle & Moll) wrote the following note on the 2018:  “Liason” is something like the “1er Cru” bottling for Enderle & Moll. This wine is deep; we’re talking Mariana Trench deep... The nose goes from strawberry and raspberry all the way to dark, earthy crushed berry and cassis; this is an example of a wine with just superb density and definition. The glycerin-rich fruit coats the herbal, kitchen spice aromatics that the whole range flaunts, yet here it is better integrated than in almost any bottle other than the Grand Cru “Muschelkalk.” The palate is wound up, coiled up, taut and angry. The relative generosity and depth of the nose is turned inward here, showing phenolics and minerality and super-fine tannins. Fun to drink now with food, this is going to develop into perhaps one of the best Liasons from Enderle & Moll. Try and be patient; if drinking young, decant.  (Thanks for the note Stephen!)

Prüm, J.J. 2001 Mosel Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese

This is Auslese to bury deep in the cellar. The perfect gift for the Riesling lover that is looking for a wine that will be compelling either in 2011 or 2031. If enjoying now, be sure to give it a lengthy decant, as I found this really hit its stride after about 4 hours open. Not heavy but expansive, mouth-filling and fresh with perfectly balanced acid. Notes of pear, sweet lime, succulent yellow and white peach, this is just so delicious. Prum at its finest, and one of the most thrilling bottles I've recently tasted. -jfr
