Cidrerie du Léguer NV Lannion 'Granit' Cidre Rosé

Cédric Le Bloas is making delicious ciders in Lannion, Brittany, France (check a map, it's WAY up there). His grandfather was a cidermaker, and although this didn't continue through his father's generation, Cedric found himself drawn back to Brittany after years spent away. Upon returning, Cedric and his wife Kate came upon four hectares of orchard for sale, with trees ranging in age from 25 to 40 years old. They've converted the orchards to certified organic farming and work with a mix of heirloom and local varieties. Apples are harvested by hand and the juice goes through a 'keeving process' (removal of pectin) to ensure a clarity and natural delicate sweetness to the finished product. Fermentation is spontaneous and the cider undergoes its second fermentation in bottle, no sulfur is added. 'Granit' rosé is in reference to the predominant soil type in the orchard (granite), and the medium salmon-rose color comes from a small addition of black currants. These fruits also come forth on the nose, alongside notes of black tea and cherry candy, the palate is pleasantly off-dry, with a surge of McIntosh and tart green apple, currant juice and just a slight hint of tannins on the finish.

Clos des Citots NV Poiré de Normandie

Martine & Gérard Lenormand organically farm 13 hectares of fruit trees in Herteauville, Normandy, France. They grow both apples and pears, and have been working the land since 1998. Their Poiré is made from a mix of Plant de Blanc, De Cloche, and Champagne pears, planted on limestone/loam soils. Fermentation is in tank and the poiré goes through a light filtration before bottling with no sulfur added.

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2008 Alsace Au Bout du Sentier

Though this Riesling was produced before the Hausherrs converted to Biodynamic farming and started making natural wines, it is proof that I actually do love varietal wines from Alsace and I don't mind a little added SO2! The wine was fermented in stainless steel, and bottled with 20 mg/l of SO2. Soils here are a mix of marl and sandstone with north-west exposition. It's a very classic Alsace Riesling, with notes of petrol and passion fruit. There's lovely ripeness here, balanced by zippy acidity, and subtle oxidative notes. -EL

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2014 Alsace Blanc de Noir

This is a special bottling that the Hausherrs made from a difficult 2014 harvest. Mildew had created problems with their tiny plot of Pinot Noir, so they made a Blanc de Noirs from their miniscule 0.3 hectares. They then aged the wine for 4 years in a large barrel. The result is a deep golden, slightly oxidative and remarkably expressive wine, with notes of butterscotch and creme brûlée. -EL

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2017 Alsace Aussitôt Bue

Aussitôt Bue is a blend of Pinot Auxerrois* and Sylvaner, with a small amount of Tokai Pinot Gris, from an east-facing parcel on sandstone terroir. Notes of white melon, lemon curd, and lychee, with a touch of fleshiness on the palate. A friendly wine, and a great aperitif sipper.  -EL*I ask every Alsace producer what the difference is between Pinot Blanc and  Auxerrois, and Hubert had some insight on the matter! As he explained, Auxerrois typically has lower acidity than its close cousin Pinot Blanc, but is known for lovely  aromatics, while Pinot Blanc is greener and less beautiful aromatically.

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2017 Alsace Copains Comme Raisins

This is a skin-contact offering from Hubert and Heidi Hausherr. A blend of Pinot Gris, Sylvaner, Auxerrois, and Riesling, with 21 days of maceration. Because the grapes were left intact (whole-cluster), the tannic structure here is very subtle. Hubert says the Riesling provides pretty acidity, and I believe the Pinot Gris lent color and spice. Of all the Hausherr wines, this is the only one I would recommend drinking in one sitting. It seems to lose it's freshness and lift after several hours, and some bacterial notes emerge. Their still whites, however, are well worth trying over several days!  -EL

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2017 Alsace La Colline Céleste

Colline Céleste is a wine made from a coplantation of Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris from the Eischberg Grand Cru, which is a south and east exposed vineyard of marl and limestone. The "berg" in Eischberg is Alsatian for "hill" (colline in French) and Céleste is the name of their grandfather.  Hubert explained that the fermentation stopped with 10 grams of sugar remaining, so they waited 5 or 6 months to see if the yeast might finish the job. It didn't change much so they bottled at 9 grams RS. The blend here is dominated by the Gewurztraminer in percentage and aromatics. Lovely floral and white pepper notes, with a long, spicy finish. Though it isn't 100%, if anyone out there likes a good dry Gewurztraminer, this is most definitely worth a try!   -EL

Hausherr, Hubert & Heidi 2017 Alsace Le Sentier au Sud

A blend of Riesling and Pinot Gris from marl and sandstone soils. This wine was a treat to taste over several hours and maintained it's freshness and energy into the second day. Notes of lemon verbena, and stone fruit.  Pinot Gris gives some heft and power but it's very delicate and round. Riesling provides straight acidity and melon fruit. This is a great example of a natural wine that is first and foremost complex and terroir-driven. The detail of it's lack of filtration or sulfur addition is important and noteworthy of course, but it does not define the wine or predict how complete and well-made it is. -EL

Jauma 2017 McLaren Vale Like Raindrops Grenache

Sourced from three plots of 40-year-old Grenache vines in Maclaren Vale and Clarendon, this wine speaks highly of the ironstone and clay soils of the Hills. There is a touch of CO2 added at bottling for preservation, but otherwise there is nothing added or taken away for this juice. The nose is perfectly ripe red cherry and currants, a woodsy tree-bark quality, owed largely to the whole-cluster fermentation, and you can truly smell the iron and clay from these three vineyard sites. The palate is bright and approachable with powdery tannins that evoke the silky clay through the finish. Medium bodied and juicy, this will be a great pairing for leaner pork dishes or a spicy, simmered curry! Michelle DeWyngaert

Descombes, Georges 2017 Regnie

The 2017 Regnié from Geroges Descombes is a finely balanced wine, even in a warmer vintage, Ripe and generous fruit is offset with lively acidity and a vivid intensity on the palate that keeps this wine lifted and fresh. On the nose there are aromas of red and black currant, strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, rose, violets, and licorice. The palate has soft and finely integrated tannins and shows notes of strawberry and raspberry compote, cranberry, blackberry, pomegranate, orange peel, baking spice and a granitic minerality, especially on the complex and satisfying finish. This is a very versatile wine, and I wouldn't hesitate to pair with a wide range of foods, from roast chicken, to burgers or even a pork chop. It was equally at home accompanying the watching of a movie on the couch with just a little, hastily composed cheese plate for backup. A joyful wine for all occasions. Oskar Kostecki

Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) 2018 Beaujolais l'Ancien V.V.

L'Ancien comes from Jean Paul Brun's home village of Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. The vines range in age from 40 to 60 years old and are planted on slopes sporting the area's signature sandy clay-limestone soils, featuring the particular local "dorée" or "golden" limestone that is laden with iron. These older vines have always been farmed organically and harvested by hand and yield small, thick-skinned Gamay berries. As for all Terres Dorées reds, the vinification is traditional Burgundian rather than the normal carbonic maceration in Beaujolais. The 2018 shows a bright deep red color. The aromas are high-toned and ripe with red currant, raspberry and wild strawberry, quite bright and floral. The palate shows lush, ripe berry fruits backed by citrusy acidity, quite refreshing. The finish is long and sappy with bright red fruits and tart acidity - stock-up on this crowd-pleasing Beaujolais!

Maison Blanche 2016 Montagne Saint-Emilion Les Piliers

Nicolas Despagne replaced his parents in 2009 at Maison Blanche, the same year the production was granted organic certification. With his push, the estate gained Demeter biodynamic status in 2013. Les Piliers, Despagne's second label, is made with old and young vines of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The fermentation is natural and done in concrete vats, with no additives or interventional processes commonly used in the area. The wine has compact aromatics of dark plum and fresh, healthy earth. On the palate, there are flavors of blackberry, cassis, plum and pepper. The youthful density of the mouthfeel helps enhance the deep fruit notes on the tongue, but definitely cellar a few for the near future. David Hatzopoulos

Mazeyres 2013 Pomerol

As it goes in Pomerol, the Mazeyres (certified bio since 2012) is abundantly Merlot.  The blend is rounded out with mostly Cabernet Franc. The grapes are hand harvested from a bit more than 25 hectares of 30 year old vines. Fermentation takes place in concrete and steel vats, and élevage is done in oak (30% new) for 14 months. The nose is robust, with mature aromatics of spicy plum, black pepper, and an accent of warm vanilla. The palate is more subtle, offering soft red and black cherries, and the structure is supple with rich tannins. Ready to drink, but with a decade or so to go. David Hatzopoulos

The Dudognon Reserve is one of the best values in Cognac. Made without additives or coloring, it's a pale gold color with subtle citrus and white fruit aromas.

Laurent Cazottes NV Goutte de Reine-Claude Brandy 375 ml

Laurent Cazottes is undoubtedly one of the finest distillers in the entire world. Farming  grapes and fruit trees biodynamically in the Tarn department in Southwest France, he is crafting some of the purest expressions of fruit brandy that I have ever tasted. This beautiful greengage plum (Reine-Claude in French) brandy comes from a small .7 hectare grove of ancient trees, and Laurent hand peels and de-seeds the fruit before fermenting and distilling. I've never had the pleasure of tasting greengage plums, this old heirloom variety is nearly extinct in the US, but this exceptionally crafted distillate more than makes up for it. A wonderful way to finish a meal, and a real treat! Oskar Kostecki

Burgundy White

Cadette (Domaine de la) 2018 Bourgogne Vezelay La Chatelaine

 Jean and Catherine Montanet planted their first vineyards in 1987 and began farming organically in 1999. Though Vézelay is a geographic appendage of Chablis, the soils are not exactly the same. Instead of the Kimmerdigian soils, the clays here range from blue and gray to red, sometimes with no clay at all but just shallow limestone. While the climate is slightly cooler than in Chablis, the vines enjoy great sun exposure, lending a balance between generous fruit and deep mineral structure. The 2018 Vèzeleay "La Chatelaine" is a beautiful Burgundy with elegant white fruits, almond and citrus aromas. The palate is silky and crystalline with nice density of pear and white peach fruit and a refreshing mineral character that will make it a great food pairing with mild flavored fish and chicken dishes and quite lovely to sip on its own. Lovely wine!  David Lillie

Generous, bright, and delicious now, this should really shine with a few years in the cellar. John McIlwain

Champagne

Agrapart 2014 Champagne Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Expérience

While Champagne is on occasion dismissed as a wine without terroir due to its history of blends, the multiple stages of fermentation, and a prise de mousse that relies on the addition of sugar or MCR, Pascal Agrapart's Expérience is solely comprised of grape juice with just a modicum of sulfur. The vin clair is a barrel selection of 2014 Minéral and Avizoise fermented with native yeasts, and the secondary fermentation begun with grape must from the 2015 vintage and cellar yeasts. The wine is aged under cork and bottled without dosage. This cuvée is a particularly vinous expression of Champagne, where terroir and grape have an articulate dialogue.  John McIlwain

Pouillon, R 2012 Champagne 1er Cru Brut Nature Les Blanchiens 1.5L

From an organically-farmed, single-vineyard parcel at the top of the slope on the western side of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay fermented in used barrels. Though from a premier cru village rather than its grand cru neighbor, Aÿ, the 2012 Les Blanchiens is no less an articulate expression of the calcareous clay soils that make up its terroir. The nose offers biscuit, lemon verbena, apple blossom and sea spray aromas. The palate shows punchy vibrant fruit on the attack, with an incisive minerality giving way to a rich and complex mid-palate. This is manifested by pungent soil notes, which give way to distinctly savory, mouth-filling, powerful finish. Though bottled without dosage, this is by no means austere, instead it's a confident expression of the Blanchiens terroir. (Disgorged Spring 2019) John McIlwain

100% Chardonnay from the well-situated, south-facing Les Valnons Froid Cul lieu-dit on the upper slope of the Grand Cru village of Aÿ. Fermented with native yeasts in neutral barrels. Disgorged in Spring 2019, dosage 2.5g/l. Les Valnons is a lovely, albeit somewhat atypical Blanc de Blancs from a village better known for its Pinot Noir. The robe on the 2012 has a pale gold color with a fine bead. This nervy Chardonnay offers aromas of wet stone, lemon oil, quinine, and quince. The palate is broad, expressive, and powerful offering citrus, spice, and mineral notes on a taut, complex, and detailed finish. There's great interplay between the ripe fruit and the electric acidity. John McIlwain

Gin

Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin 750ml

This bottle represents the Gin obsession of Brooklyn native Steven DeAngelo. His distillery is located in the once industrial, now artisanal, north-Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Here he uses a still with vacuum technology that allows distillation to occur at a lower temperature. This cooler process results in a gin with surprisingly fresh aromatics and a very bright green coriander note. These flavors are very well expressed in a gin and tonic, but also work well with other herbal spirits like Amaro. John Rankin

Fornacina 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Fornacina only produces their riserva bottling in their very best vintages. From 100% Sangiovese Grosso selected from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a charming village hanging over the Abbey de Sant'Antimo a couple kilometers south of Montalcino. This riserva wine is vinified in stainless steel for thirty days before  spending 48 months in the huge Slavonian oak casks traditional to the region. After this, the wine spends another twelve months in bottle before being released to the market. This allows an extraordinary delicacy of tannic texture that belies this wine's immense power. This is on the spicier side for Brunello, with notes of morello cherry and plum enrobed in silken hints of baking spices like cinnamon, vanilla, and licorice. Full bodier, rich, and elegant, this wine is fantastic with braised meats, filet mignon, wine-based stews, and osso buco. Andrew Farquhar

Autran, Michel 2017 Vouvray Ciel Rouge

Michel Autran's brilliant 2017 "Ciel Rouge" is from average 80 year-old vines in red clay over limestone, a superb Vouvray terroir. The wine shows a pale bright gold color, with subtle, very elegant high-toned aromas of poire william, green apple, grapefruit, fines herbes, wet stone and honey with a hint of oak. The palate is a rather intense blend of white fruits,  minerals, grapefruit pith, firm chalky acidity and bright citrus flavors that will need a few years to integrate. Showing a bit more weight than the "Enfers Tranquilles" the wine is nevertheless equally crystalline and intensely mineral.  Give this a long decant if drinking now, preferably cellar five to eight years, then enjoy for many years to come. This is a unique and potentially great Vouvray and is highly recommended!  David Lillie

Autran, Michel 2017 Vouvray Les Enfers Tranquilles

This is a beautiful dry Chenin and an amazing expression of the soils of Vouvray, in this case clay with silex over the limestone bedrock. The 2017 "Enfers Tranquilles" is a very light bronze/gold color with aromas of dried pear, lime-flower, marzipan, honey and white peach - subtle and quite elegant. The palate is crystalline with tart citrus and chalky mineral flavors under hints of green apple, pear and lemon zest. The finish is long, silky and fine, with intense acidity and stone flavors lingering on the tongue - just a superb wine, delicate but with exhilarating minerality. Serve with oysters, sole and cod or age ten to twenty years to enjoy with richer dishes. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

Batardiere 2015 Anjou Clos des Cocus

Anjou last year, Vin de France this year (the mystery of the Appellation board!), this is Chenin Blanc from Anjou, whether or not it's on the label. Dense, and crystalline, witn mint flower and and cooked apples on the nose, a touch of honeysuckle and vanilla on the palate. Stones, herbs, and a touch of refreshing salinity in the super long finish. This is truly a young wine, and a big expression of Chenin. A fascinating bottle to have over several days. One really gets the sense that this young Thomas Batardiere is getting very comfortable and connected with his vineyards.Drink now with a proper decant or put it away for a while! Eben Lillie

Baudry 2018 Chinon Les Granges

From 30 to 35 year-old vines on gravel and sandy soils over clay and limestone near the Vienne river in organic agriculture. Hand harvested, fermented with wild yeasts, ages for 8 to 10 months in cement vats, minimal addition of SO2 prior to bottling. This "basic" cuvée from Bernard and Matthieu Baudry has gotten more and more "serious" as the vines age, giving a wine that is  delightful to drink young, but that shows surprising complexity and mineral character as well. In the great 2018 vintage the wine is a sheer delight! 10 to 20% of the crop was lost to mildew, and the remaining berries were small but very ripe. Tasted at the domain in January 2019, the wine showed a deep black purple color with vibrant, lush aromas of cassis, red currant and boysenberry with deep sweet black raspberry and strawberry fruit on the palate, surprisingly bright and balanced given the extra ripeness of the vintage. This is a superb Chinon to drink a bit cool over the next five to eight years - there should be a good quantity available but don't delay in trying this very special "basic" wine!  David Lillie

Chidaine 2018 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

This Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent value from a deeply conscientious producer. Francois Chidaine practices biodynamics in his vineyards and takes the health of his soil and the environment to the next level by rotating cover crops and avoiding plowing. The resulting wine has a rich texture with a distinctly stony finish. The nose is delicate mix of white grapefruit, sage, and fresh white flowers, and the palate is fresh and rounded, only faintly herbal rather than overtly vegetal as some Sauvignon Blanc can be. The wine was aged and fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and spent several months on the lees before bottling. Well balanced and a great pairing for sautéed fish or vegetables and certainly with goat cheese. Michelle DeWyngaert

Pépière 2018 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Les Gras Moutons

(Will be 22.99 in December) This lovely wine clearly illustrates the difference between the granite and gneiss terroirs in Muscadet. Gras Moutons is a great parcel on gneiss, in layers that permit a deep penetration bty the vines, with sandy clay and amphibolite stones. The vines are at the top of a hill and on the south facing slope overlooking the Maine. (The name, by the way, does not refer to fat sheep, but rather in local dialect, to the hilltop vineyard site.) This terroir produces lovely, classic Muscadet to drink over the next 5 to 8 years, it has a more herbal and floral bouquet than the granite-based wines and the palate, although refreshing and bright, is softer and more open. The 2018 Gras Moutons is a sensational Muscadet showing a pale bronze color and beautiful aromas of ripe pear and quince with hints of anise, stone and almond; The palate is very dense and mineral with ripe pear and white peach, quite supple and ripe but framed in firm acidity. The finish is long and dense with white fruits, citrus and an almost bitter mineral aspect - this will pair beautifully with a full-flavored fish or chicken dish. Five to eight years of aging will bring out the complexity of this lovely wine. Highly recommended and a great value!  David Lillie

Raffault, Olga 2014 Chinon Les Picasses

Les Picasses is one of the greatest vineyards in Chinon - a south-facing slope of clay over porous limestone that retains water and nutrients, nourishing the vines. While the wine is amply fruited and enjoyable young, it has firm acidity and structure for long-term aging, up to 30 years and more depending on the vintage. 2014 was an excellent vintage for Loire reds, which generally showed vibrant fruit, fresh acidity and moderate alcohol. Not a "big" vintage but one of very pretty, well-balanced wines. The 2014 Raffault Picasses shows a bright, red/black color with aromas of morello cherry, red currant, blackberry and prune with hints of licorice, earth and black pepper. The palate shows silky tannins and sappy red and black fruits with chalky minerals and firm acidity. Earthy prune, plum and cherry fruits linger in the long finish. Please decant two to three hours in advance if drinking now, then serve a bit cool with roast chicken, pork or lamb. This will sing a different song after 6 to 8 years of aging, best perhaps 2026 - 2040. DL

Roche Bleue 2018 Coteaux du Loir La Guinguette

Sébastien Cornille's lovely 2018 "Guinguette" is made from a blend of 70% Pineau d’Aunis, 20% Gamay and 10% Cabernet Franc sourced from 30+year-old vines in biodynamic farming. It undergoes semi-carbonic maceration for 20 days in tank before the Pineau d’Aunis is pressed off to be aged in neutral barrique and the Gamay in tank. The 2018 Guinguette is a superb "vin de soif" offering bright aromas of peppery raspberry, cherry and violets, a bit riper than the 2017. The palate shows light but sappy raspberry, plum and red currant fruit with chalky minerals, spice and citrus. The finish is long and refreshing. Serve this lovely wine slightly chilled with charcuterie, of course, grilled pork and lamb, bluefish (?) and mild cow cheeses.  David Lillie

"Nota Bene" is Philippe Tessier's rare and beautiful Gamay, made from his oldest vines and only in the best vintages. The 2018 is extraordinary showing a deep black/red color with intense aromas of blackberry, earth, mint and violets - lush but bright. The palate is quite dense with complex black fruits lifted by firm acidity, with hints of mint, licorice, spice and earth. The finish is long and dense with almost bitter black fruit and mineral flavors.  We would suggest cellaring for about five years.  David Lillie

Tue-Boeuf 2018 Touraine La Guerrerie

From a small parcel of clay and silex on limestone, 2/3 Cot and 1/3 Gamay. 40 year-old vines, organic since 1996, aged in old barrels, large and small, zero added SO2. Thierry Puzelat was a pioneer of natural wine-making and he continues with this beautiful "Guerrerie" from the lovely 2018 vintage in the Loire Valley. The wine shows a bright red/black color, with beautiful lush blackberry and black raspberry aromas, floral, minty, ripe and deep; the palate is sappy and supple with bright blackberry and red currant liqueur, very long and balanced with lemony acidity - just a beautiful wine - luscious now but it should be very interesting with 5 to 10 years of aging. Highly recommended! David Lillie

Villemade, Herve 2018 Vin de France Sauvignon Blanc

Hervé Villemade's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc hits the spot with classic Loire Valley aromas of exotic tropical fruit and invigorating flavors of lemongrass, ripe pear, and nectarine. The palate is supple and quite ripe in 2018 but remains balanced with a flinty, mineral quality that adds a refreshing tang and texture to this versatile wine. Perfect for sipping on a warm day with a variety of foods, I like this with grilled shrimp garnished with snap peas and summer vegetables. Amanda Bowman

Papras Winery 2019 PGI Tyrnavos (Greece) Naiads Badiki Amber

(Wines arrive Tuesday 1/21) Naiads (in ancient Greek mythology, the nymphs of the freshwater springs) is the new wine in the series of Nymph-named bottlings from Papras Bio Wines. Made from the indigenous Greek grape Badiki, this is fermented in the same method as the Oreads and the Pleiades:  indigenous yeast fermentation, ten days of maceration on the skins, and then bottling unfined and unfiltered with a small addition of SO2 (10mg). Of the three wines, this was the lightest. Naiads showed higher toned aromatics with notes of lime blossom, chamomile, and quince on the nose and a more delicate palate with lighter tannins than Oreads or Pleiades. A beautiful, gentle new addition to the trio of Nymphs! Ben Fletcher

Papras Winery 2019 PGI Tyrnavos (Greece) Oreads Black Muscat

Oreads, named for the nymphs of the mountains, is the rosé wine of the nymph-named trio from Papras Bio Wines, made from Black Muscat of Tyrnavos, which has been planted in Tyrnavos (near Mt. Olympus) for more than one hundred years. Like the Pleiades and Naiads, the organically farmed grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated on their skins for ten days, then bottled without fining or filtering and with only a small addition of sulfur (10mg). This year's Oreads is slightly darker in color than last year's, and shows beautiful pink flower, dried rose, and orange blossom aromatics. The palate is dry, crisp, and salty with lots of floral and citrus character: pansies, lilacs, the juice of blood oranges, salted pink grapefruit, and lemon zest. A great expression of this unique aromatic grape, and an instant reminder of spring time. Ben Fletcher

Papras Winery 2019 PGI Tyrnavos (Greece) Pleiades Roditis Orange

The Pleiades are the nymphs of the stars, and this bottling is made from the rosy-hued Roditis grape. Of the three nymph-wines from Papras this is the spiciest and perhaps the most clearly an "orange wine". It is made in the same method as the Oreads and the Naiads: the grapes are pressed, fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerate on their skins for ten days and finally bottled without fining or filtering and with only a small (10mg) addition of SO2. Pleiades is aromatically spicy, with melon, white pepper, yellow flower, and ripe orange on the nose. The palate is dry and surprisingly structured, with elegant tannins and plenty of citrus-driven acidity that complement flavors of quince, pineapple, Bergamot, and green tea. This is my favorite version of Pleiades that I've tasted. Ben Fletcher

Beguet, Patrice 2018 VDF Fresh Impression Red (Big Bunch Theory)

This year, the Fresh Impression rouge is a blend of 55% direct press Grenache, 35% Gamay, and a split 10% of Trousseau and Poulsard from Patrice's vineyards. When we asked about the source of the Grenache, we discovered that the biodynamic grower in the Ventoux was none other than Pablo Hocht of Domaine Creve Couer, one of our favorite new exclusive Rhone estates here at Chambers Street. Small world! The Gamay, as with previous vintages, is from Benoit Landron in Ancenis, in the Loire Valley. The wine is bright, extremely juicy and fresh, with a bit of an effervescent tickle on the tongue. Tangy and high acid, but with red fruit compote notes in the mid-palate. Very refreshing! Serve with a light chill.  -EL

Chais du Vieux Bourg 2012 Côtes du Jura Blanc "BB1"

Ludwig Bindernagel, a favorite of ours from the Jura, currently works with the newly minted Lulu label. However, when he first came to the region in the early 2000s, he produced wines as Les Chais du Vieux Bourg, the domain he had purchased. ‘BB1,’ though it may sound technical, or even scientific, stands for ‘Baby One,’ as it was the first cuvée Lulu ever created. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Savignin, and produced in a topped-up, or ouille, style. On both the nose and palate, aromas and flavors of roasted apple, spiced pear, dried apricot and pepper boast of the wines warm profile. In contrast, the mouthfeel is clean and refreshing, with a driving mineral tone. This could be your last chance to taste a bottle labeled Les Chais du Vieux Bourg. David Hatzopoulos

The name of this delicious Jura white is an ode to Murphy’s Law, as during the vintage a tractor fell over, injuring Guillaume’s father and causing hundreds of bottles to break. The nose offers aromas of dried lemons, raw pear, and basil. On the palate, perched upon a refreshing 11.6% ABV, are flavors of tangy citrus, anise, fresh green herb and grass. David Hatzopoulos

After a long career of studying and working in organic viticulture and production throughout France, Guillaume Gilet’s winemaking at Les Donneurs de Temps has been described as “super-natural” (in terms of style) by top Jura wine journalist and store friend, Winc Lorch. Marnes Grises refers to the grey marl that vines are grown on in Arbois.

Lapuyade 2015 Jurançon Cuvée Marie-Louise

This is a superb Jurançon Moelleux, harvested in late December, about 90 grams/liter of residual sugar. Wonderfully complex aromas of apricot, candied citrus, flowers and exotic fruit with a hint of vanillin. Lemon confit, apricot, brown spice and chalky acids on the palate. A young wine that is gorgeous now but perhaps best in five to ten years. With more acidity than Sauternes, this is a great match for foie gras, lemon tarts and strong cheeses, and for apple and mince pies on Thanksgiving! Absolutely superb! (The wine improves for weeks, re-corked in the fridge.)

Made from 100% Petit Manseng from 45 year-old vines always tended in organic and biodynamic farming, it's a tiny special production in the best vintages - we're fortunate to get 5 cases.The 2017 shows a bright gold color and beautiful aromas of lemon confit, apricot, almond, exotic fruit and brown spice. The palate is dense and round with dried pear, citrus, apricot, hay and mineral flavors with perhaps a bit of residual sugar. The finish is very long with firm acidity under ripe white fruits, citrus and stone. Lovely wine! Serve with foie gras, fish in sauce, Asian foods, goat chesses and patés. Sensational now and should be very interesting in ten years.  David Lillie

Navarre 2017 Saint-Chinian Cuvée Olivier

Thierry Navarre's  Cuvée Olivier is a blend from old vines of Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah in Thierry’s 12-hectare practicing organic estate situated in the AOC of Saint-Chinian, grown in brown schist soils that give density to the finished wine. On the nose it is deep and complex with dusty dark plum, boysenberry, pink peppercorn, sage, lemon oil, and clementine zest.  The palate is poised and structured, leaning towards more smoky and mineral flavors but is balanced by fresh fruit. Blackberries, citrus, and savory herbs come to mind on the finish that lingers on the palate. On day two the palate is beginning to open up with more fruit redolent of pomegranate seeds and  minerals.  Drink now or cellar for 10 to 15 years. Truly a great wine, perfect with grilled meats, tagines and stews and a fantastic value.

The palate is supple and round with flavors of apricot, fresh herbs, and salt on the finish. This is one of the most unique examples of Corsican Vermentinu we've tasted. The 2016 shows less intense acidity and is wonderfully fruit-driven with a compelling chalky texture.This is a fascinating wine that will stand up to poultry and seafood. Amanda Bowman

Val de Sorne (Jean-François Ryon) 2018 Côtes du Jura Chardonnay

The 2018 harvest, a difficult one in the Jura, left Jean-François Ryon with 15% less production than the previous vintage. What he did produce, however, has remained a prime example of what thoughtful, low intervention processes can achieve. These grapes come from Ryon’s blue marl soils and are fermented and aged in steel. The result is a refreshing Chardonnay, with aromatics of dried lemon, apricot, and mineral water. The palate is dynamic, delivering flavors of stone fruit, apple, a hint of spicy mint. Another awesome bottle we’re happy to share from Ryon. David Hatzopoulos

At a shockingly low 12% alcohol, Jean-François Ryon’s Trousseau from 2018 delivers a big punch with a profile that automatically made us think “Syrah?” The nose shows aromas of bacon, warm miso, blackberry, blueberry and plum.

Monterosso 2018 Etna Rosato Volcano

Monterosso named itself after the reddish Etna soils of sand and pumice on which their vines are grown. The Volcano Rosato is produced using 100% Nerello Mascalese from 70 to 100 year-old vines with south-eastern exposure, farmed organically. Also, the producer uses an ancient style of vine training known as Alberello Egeo, which focuses on getting the most from the land for each vine. The low yields produced (though vines are densely planted) are due to vine age, intense pruning, and poor soils – all leading to a complex but focused wine. In the glass, it shows an elegant shade of rose gold. The nose is of cherry, wild raspberry, white and red flowers, with a lean accent of green herbs. The palate is more assertive, with cherry, cranberry, and laced with iron minerality. David Hatzopoulos

Montoni 2016 IGT Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa

The Lagnusa Nero d’Avola vines ranging in age from 20-50 years old, and they give the wine remarkable depth and complexity. It has an opulent, silky texture, but it’s also a juicy and racy wine, with intense red cherry fruit, herbs like mint and thyme, and a hauntingly long stony finish. This shows the quality of much more expensive wine, and it’s full-on competition for the best Nero d’Avola from Vittoria and Pachino. Jamie Wolff

Tenuta Grillo 2004 Pecoranera (Freisa Blend)

Guido Zampaglione and his wife Igiea farm 32 hectares (of which 17 are planted to grape vines) close to the town of Gramalero in Monferrato. The winery sells most of the grapes they harvest, and only keep the best for their own production, with Guido focusing on natural, low-intervention wines with the potential to age in bottle for a significant time. The 2004 Pecoranera is the current release in the United States, and is a blend of 75% Freisa, with Dolcetto and Barbera making up the difference. With only a tiny addition of sulfur added during racking, the wine is then bottled with absolutely no additives. A bit reticent upon opening, a decant of an hour or more helps reveal depth and charm. On the nose it shows notes of dusty cherry, red currants, red plum, black plum, cranberry, dried orange peel, hints of baking spice, nutmeg, tomato leaf, blackcurrent leaf, earth, forest floor, licorice, and a touch of smokiness. The palate is energetic, with rustic and still firm tannins balanced by lively acidity. Just gets better with time open. Oskar Kostecki

Vinica 2011 Tintilia del Molise Lame del Sorbo

Tasting Vinica’s Tintilia makes me wonder how this grape ever fell out of favor in Molise in the first place. It seems particularly well adapted to the high altitude vineyards of the region, showing a balance between ripe fruit and fresh acidity. The grapes are crushed at low pressure and allowed to ferment naturally in open top vessels before being held in steel tanks for two years. There is no temperature control at any point, which allows malolactic fermentation to occur naturally over time. The wine has a pleasant herbal tone of green pepper that peaks out on the nose over tart berry fruit, red roses, and moist earth. The palate is quite fresh and marked by bright acidity and soft tannins with a pleasant, earthy finish. This may not be a wine to cellar for ten years but it is a wine that casually conveys a sense of joy and is a carefree food pairing choice. Give it a try with rich pasta dishes, roast pork, stuffed mushrooms or open it at your next summer barbeque. Andy Paynter

Cozs (Antonio Marquez e Tiago Teles) 2018 Bairrada Vital Branco

100% Vital from 35 year old vines, planted in Serra de Montejunto, about 10 miles from the Atlantic. The wine is macerated for 3 days and then pressed to ferment with native yeast in old Burgundy barrels for 11 months. Vital, a rare variety only grown in Western Portugal, is  characterized by it's lower acid content and fleshy profile.This carries over to the Vital Blanco, with gorgeous notes of green apple, minerals, a slight creaminess, and fresh green herbs. A savory spice is in the palate, while the nose shows orchard fruit, white flowers and almond skin. The wine is medium body and on the richer style, similar to a lovely Rhone Valley white. This would pair well with dover sole, seafood stews, or chicken in a cream sauce. JDC

Cozs (Antonio Marquez e Tiago Teles) 2018 Bairrada Vital Macerado

A delightful and idyllic orange wine from Tiago Teles and Antonio Marques-da Cruz. 100% Vital - a rare local grape from the Serra de Montejunto near Lisbon, with two weeks of maceration on the skins, and aging for about a year in old barrels. From my little experience with Vital, there is a LOT of character, but it's not overwhelmingly fragrant on the nose. Along with subtle overtones of stone fruit and salt, there are lovely aromas of crushed skins that are given a chance. Delicate tannins, and a finish that is a bit more refined and long, compared to the young and vivacious 2018 Vital white. We are still learning as we drink "orange" or skin-contact wines, and there are many to try. Some derived from aromatic varieties like Muscat and Gewurztraminer, can be wildly interesting but quite pronounced. Others, from long macerations, can be particularly astringent from high tannin levels. Here is a noteworthy contribution to the mix. Elegant, and food friendly. Well worth a try for fans of skin contact (or what we could just call good) wines.  -EL

Folias de Baco 2016 Vinho Tinto Uivo Francisca

Folias de Baco was started in 2007 by Douro native, Tiago Sampaio. The vineyards are located in the Alto Douro, on soils of schist and granite. He is reviving old traditions by making fascinating field blends from indigenous varieties, and at the same time exploring his love for Pinot Noir, which he developed while studying winemaking in Oregon. This wine is 100% Tinta Francisca, a native, but almost forgotten grape. Grown in granite and schist soils at 600 meters of altitude, it's dark in the glass, elegant and chalky on the palate. A beautiful wine with some crunchy red fruit and great acidity. In 2016, Tiago had to buy one new barrel, which he aged a small part of the Tinta Francisca in. This lends some subtle notes of oak, that have integrated nicely in the bottle. Lovely now, this is a great wine to keep in mind for fall feasts.  -EL

Ramilo 2017 Colares Malvasia

We are so happy to have the latest vintage of the Ramilo family’s Malvasia, one of the most special wines to come out of Portugal. From two hectares of rare and ungrafted vines in Colares, about one kilometer from the Atlantic. The soil here is made of clay, under about a meter of sand. The vines lie low to the sand, permitting longer maturation of the fruit, while the light and heat reflected by the sand raises the fairly low temperature. After an October harvest period, 50% of the wine is fermented traditionally in stainless steel, while 50% of the wine is fermented on the lees in an open air lagar for seven days. This skin contact gives the Malvasia gorgeous notes of orange blossom, sea spray, plush flowers and salty minerality. The palate continues these notes, along with the classic Colares profile of minerality, salinity, crisp acidity and tart citrus. This is one of our favorite wines, made for a dish like seafood stews, salt cod, and shrimp tempura. JDC

Tiago Teles 2017 Vinho de Portugal Raiz Tinto

Tiago’s RAIZ Tinto is a co-ferment of roughly 90% Alfrocheiro, 10% Bical. From vines planted on clay-limestone soil, the grapes are hand-harvested in September, destemmed and co-fermented in 1000 liter tanks, followed by a short maceration and light pressing and 10 months in contact with the lees in raw cement tanks. Light bodied and zesty, Tiago’s wines are always backed by a heavy mineral presence. The palate shows notes of green herbs, slight grapefruit, sour cherry and some spice, with bright acidity and lovely structure. The wine certainly benefits from a slight chill before drinking. JDC

Rhone

Château de Manissy 2018 IGP du Gard Rouge 'La Belle Etoile'

A classic Rhone blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah from 1.5ha on limestone and clay soil. The grapes see a lot of sun from their location in an open, flat plain. The farming is organic and the grapes are hand-harvested that see a cold maceration before pressing, followed by aging on the lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is a silky, round and full blend. Showing notes of cassis, plum and some smoke, this is a great value from Southern France. A great pairing with lamb, stews, or braised meats. JDC

Clos du Joncuas 2016 Vacqueyras La Font de Papier

From 80% Grenache with Syrah and Mourvedre, grown on gravelly limestone terraces, always farmed organically, whole-cluster fermention and aged in concrete vats.  Dany and Carole Chastan have made another superb Vacqueyras in 2016, a bit brighter than the opulent 2015 version, showing dark black/red color and bright aromas of  blackberry, black olive and licorice with plum skin, garrigue, violet and bitter chocolate.  This young wine is showing deep black fruits with firm acidity and terrific length with chalky mineral notes, earth, citrus and olive. This will be fantastic with grilled foods, stews and tagines and will develop nicely over the next 10 - 15 years. Highly recommended and a great value!  David Lillie

Domaine Alary 2016 Cairanne "La Brunote"

Now under the hands of Denis Alary, a vigneron of a old, storied estate (this is the 11th generation), Domaine Alary is producing textured and lovely Southern Rhone wines. Founded in 1692 (under the reign of the Sun King), Domaine Alary lies in the commune of Cairanne, where Denis has a number of Cairanne terroirs. The mix of terroir is important in a cuvee like La Brunote - a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Carignan. The Grenache is harvested on the region’s “terroir garrigues” while the Mourvèdre and Carignan are harvested on a south-facing mountain slope made of clay-limestone soil. The wine is then fermented with natural yeasts for around 25 days. On the nose, the wine is a complex medley of lovely red fruits and spice: red currant, sour cherry, sweet pepper and plum. On the palate, the wine shows notes of pear, herbal tea, Black Krim tomatoes, ripe cherry and dried apricots. With soft tannins from the Mourvèdre, lovely acidity and depth, La Brunote is a wonderfully balanced and complex wine. JDC

"Les Mesanges" is a cuvée of Saint-Joseph made from 40 to 50 year-old organic Syrah vines on biotite granite soils in the vineyards of Pecher and Vauturerie at Chavanay, 60-70% destemmed, aged 18 months in 600 liter barrels, 25% new, 75% 5 to 8 year-old. On the nose, this wine shows complex and concentrated aromas of macerated dark fruits and flowers, sandalwood, baking spices, and savory green herbs. The palate is robust, with deep red and black berries and citrus rind. Balanced structure, with a hefty mouthfeel alleviated by focused acidity.

Bunnahabhain Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 Year 750ml

Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay that specializes in mostly unpeated or very lightly peated whiskies. On the other hand, they are masters of sherry cask aging, and the dried fruit, toffee and baking spice quality of this malt integrates perfectly with its coastal, slightly saline character. Terrific value for a Scotch single malt of this age and quality. Oskar Kostecki

Springbank 12 year old Cask Strength 113 Pf

Each year, this release gets me more excited than almost anything else. The 12 year cask strength has everything I love about Springbank whisky, but on steroids. Amplified aromas of dried fruit, dried cherries, citrus rind, and leather assault the palate, with a faint whiff of smoke and engine oil. This was aged in 70% sherry cask, and it shows in the creamy texture. Snap this up before its gone! Oskar Kostecki

Herrera Alvarado 2018 Chile Valle Marga Marga 'Oro Negro'

 Drinking the wine from Carolina Alvarado and Arturo Herrera is like opening a time-capsule from 14th century Chile. Founded in 2003, the winery was built out of clay from their own vineyards and the winery continues to operate entirely by hand and with no electricity. They also employ the very traditional Marga Marga valley technique of fermenting the grapes on cow hides, which certainly comes through on the nose of their wines, but only in a faint, "I must be somewhere near a cow" kind of way. The 'Oro Negro' is a bottling of un-grafted 100+ year vines of Pais grown at 2600ft elevation in Colliguay. Fermented 100% whole cluster and aged for 15 months in neutral barrels before being bottled with nothing added or taken away. The nose of this wine is incredibly unique; a blend of faint leather mixed with wet stone, and a little pine, distinctly minerally. The palate is fresh and juicy with a solid structure and a savory, stony finish. Michelle DeWyngaert

Mendel 2018 Mendoza Semillon

This wine is for the lovers of rich, fuller-bodied whites. I love the concentrated flavors you get from these 60 year-old, ungrafted Semillon vines. Mendel farms without pesticides or fertilizers and uses 100% indigenous yeasts, and they are in the process of getting organic certification for this Altamira vineyard. The high elevation of the vineyard, at 3,600ft, helps maintain a nice freshness in the wine, balanced by the creamy texture of the Semillon and the 15% new French oak used in the élevage. The nose is a mix of dried apricot, Meyer lemon, and dry hay, and the palate shows off the terroir of Altamira with a stony, salty minerality. Michelle DeWyngaert

Clos Lentiscus 2015 Penedes Perill Carinyena

This is a beautiful, pure expression of Carinyena (Carignan), from Clos Lentiscus winery, in Penedes. The style of maceration here seems like it was almost an infusion, as the palate is dominated by bright red berry fruit, and lots of fresh minerality. The wine is not thin, however. It's got a lot of character, just very little tannin for a red. Prime candidate for a chill. A delicious natural wine from our friend Manel, and one that should continue to drink well with more time in the bottle.    Eben

This is a funky red from Bierzo native, Diego Losada. 100% Mencia, sourced from 3 small vineyards around the village of Hervededo, in Galicia. The parcels for this wine come from the mountains in Bierzo, where the soils are iron rich, littered with quartz and other minerals (a contrast with the mostly clay/limestone terroir in the area). 3 days of maceration without punch down, and 8 months in 5-6 year old barrels. Losada harvests fully ripe fruit, and does not interfere with the natural fermentation or acid levels. A delicious Mencia, with a bit of a dark side.   -EL

Mal Bien Miahuatlán, Oaxaca Tepextate (F+A Cortes) 50.2%

Our second offering from father-son duo Felipe and Ageo Cortes is their Tepextate (Agave marmorata). Sometimes spelled 'Tepeztate', this maguey can also grow quite large in size, not unlike Arroqueño it also prefers rocky soils and also can live for upwards of twenty+ years in the wild before reaching maturity. The leaves (pencas) of the plant can have a marbled quality, this being the characteristic from which the species name takes its inspiration. The piñas roast for 8-10 days in earthen pit with the same mix of woods as the Arroqueño (Alder, Encino Oak, Mesquite), but there is no resting of the Tepextate piñas, they are crushed by stone tahona and spontaneously ferment in open-top Cypress tina for 3-8 days mixed with well water. Distillation is also two times, using their copper alembic still w/refrescadera. Proofed to 50.2% ABV with the heads and tails, this batch made 266 bottles and the spirit has been glass-rested since April 2018*. Dark green cucumber skin, a field of tall grasses (fresh and dried) and pine trees, cinnamon bark on the nose, the palate leads with green banana, green peppercorn, green pear skin, leather, cucumber seed, bitter parsnip, and green melon.

Brick House 2017 Willamette Valley Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir Select

A native of Oregon, but thoroughly inspired by Burgundy, winemaker Doug Tunnell has been farming his 40 acre estate vineyard strictly organically for the last 25 years, and more recently certified Biodynamic. This bottling is a selection of barrels from various plots throughout his vineyard to get a true representation of the vintage each year. This years "Select" Pinot Noir has a beautiful nose of fresh roses, stems and all, red currant, raspberry, and juicy pomegranate. Indeed this is very Burgundian in style with just a bit more focus on the fruit. The wine is fresh and lively;  for me it conjures a crisp, fall, afternoon. Michelle DeWyngaert

Ghostwriter 2016 Santa Cruz County Pinot Noir

This cuvée is meant to be an overview of what the Santa Cruz Mountains have to offer, and is sourced from three different vineyards: 40% Upper Block Amaya Ridge,  35% Aptos Creek, and 25% Smith Road. While the blend varies a little vintage to vintage, the wine shows consistency in its expression of classic Santa Cruz restraint. Fine cranberry fruit with a hint of some baking and savory spices, this Pinot is finely structured, with delicate tannins and a fine acid backbone. Open and inviting now, this wine will also benefit from a few years of cellaring. Excellent with roast chicken, lobster rolls, or miso-broth ramen, this will work just as well without food, as it is aromatic and mesmerizing as a standalone experience. 600 cases produced.

Banyan 2018 Monterey County Gewürztraminer

This is a Gewürztraminer that might just change a few hearts and minds about the grape. In the wrong hands, Gewürztraminer can become cloying and overpowering with the scent of Grandma's potpourri, but this wine from Kenny Likitprakong shows some serious restraint. Sourced entirely from the Rancho Llegado vineyard in Monterey County, the frequent cool winds of the area maintain the much needed acidity to balance this wine. Banyan was designed by Kenny and his father with their Thai heritage in mind, and as such this Gewürztraminer is the perfect pairing for South-east Asian cuisine or anything with a bit of spice to it. Though it is fermented nearly dry, it maintains a softness with notes of ripe nectarine, a touch of tropical fruit, sage, and bright, fresh gardenia blossoms. Michelle DeWyngaert

A fun, unique example of Finger Lakes Riesling form our friend Andrew Scott of Eminence Road! This sparkling Riesling from the Lambs Quarter's Vineyard is destemmed and then left on the skins for 10 days to create a richer mouthfeel. After a long fermentation, the wine is racked from the lees, but remains unfined and unfiltered. The nose is full of ripe peach and tangerine, and on the palate is ripe and fresh tangerine and apple cider with a dry, textured finish. Great as an aperitif or with stronger cheeses!

Precedent 2014 Cienega Valley Wirz Vineyard Old Vine White Wine

Precedent is the label of Nathan Kandler, longtime winegrower at Thomas Fogarty in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a renowned destination for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Precedent illustrates Kandler's versatility and curiosity and has introduced us to some truly unique California vineyard sites. Wirz Vineyard is home to 60+ year-old dry farmed, head-trained Riesling on decomposed granite over limestone in the Gabilan mountains. We usually have an off-dry Riesling on the table, but I'm happy to go in a drier direction in this case...concentrated, gleaming apricot, citrus rind, and tropical fruit is laced with gritty, long minerality and backed by supple texture and acidic tension. Terrific with herbed root vegetables and citrus glazed poultry or fish and anything peppery or spicy. Ariana Rolich

Wiemer, Hermann 2017 Finger Lakes Riesling Dry

This is the estate's flagship wine, and perhaps the type species for Finger Lakes Riesling as a whole. All estate fruit from vineyards that have had no herbicides since 2004; spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel takes place over the course of 7+ months. Slightly off-dry, with notes of spring blossoms, a little citrus character, almost a hint of lime. Beautifully structured and with a kind of roundness that is very satisfying. A classic New York Riesling, slightly fuller-bodied than a Mosel Riesling, but still with loads of acidity and just a touch of sweetness make this an easily quaffable wine that pairs with a wide range of foods such as bratwurst, oysters, or mango salsa.
