Bordeaux Red

La Renouée 2020 Vin de France Cabernet Sauvignon

(Arrives 7/29) Winemaker Guillaume Dussans has planted 17 ancient grape varieties formerly grown in Bordeaux on his small domain on a hillside in Cadillac.  His "La Renouée" 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is from a tiny parcel of 56-year-old vines, fermented and aged in old barrels. The color is a vibrant plum in color.  The nose has aromas of red apple and cherries, with zesty ginger and warm black tea. On the palate, flavors of red cherry and cassis, with refreshing graphite zip and a hint of earthy gravel. Wonderfully lean on the tongue, just a dash of tannic grip and lovely acid! This unique and delicious Bordeaux would do well with a chill! David Hatzopoulos

Lafouge 2020 Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés Blanc

The Lafouge Auxey-Duresses "Les Hautés" is from a north-facing parcel fairly high on the slope next to Meursault "Les Vireuils."

"The 2020 Auxey-Duresses Blanc “les Hautés” from Monsieur Lafouge is another beautifully racy and minerally example of the vintage. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a blaze of green apple, fresh lime, dried flowers, beeswax, limestone minerality and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is precise, full-bodied and snappy, with a lovely core, excellent soil inflection and grip, bouncy acids and a very long, focused and very promising finish. Again, just a bit of patience will be handsome dividends with this excellent young wine."  John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

Champagne

Feneuil, Emilien 2018 Coteaux Champenois Chamery Rouge Drey Moutier 1.5L

Whereas the Les Goulats is a more powerful and structured Coteaux, Les Drey Le Moutier is more overtly chalky and high-toned. The robe is an intense ruby. The nose (worth the price of admission) is spicy and red-fruited with notes of rose petal and cherry stone and though structured, the palate is a bit more juicy on the palate. Both of Coteaux Rouges are poised and elegant, though this is more silk to Goulats' (very pretty) velvet. John McIlwain

Feneuil, Emilien 2018 Coteaux Champenois Chamery Rouge Les Goulats 1.5L

100% organically-farmed Pinot Noir. Les Goulats is a single parcel located in Chamery. The northeast-facing slope is comprised of sandy clays over limestone. For the Coteaux Rouge, the grapes are destemmed. The 2018  Coteaux Champenois Rouge Les Goulats is a most expressive Coteaux. Black-fruited, ripe, and a bit bosky on the nose. The palate shows black cherry and black berry seed fruit on a broad and structured palate. Impressive length and fine-grained tannins beneath fruit bode for excellent ageability. John McIlwain

Lambert, Patrick 2020 Chinon Rosé (9/21)

(Arrives 9/21) This delightful Chinon Rosé comes from Patrick Lambert's 6 hectares of organic vines in Cravant, around the corner from his friend and mentor, Bernard Baudry. Hand harvested from 20-year-old Cabernet Franc vines on gravel and sandy clay soils over limestone. The 2020 shows lovely aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry, citrus and rose; the palate is silky and ripe with raspberry, cherry, citrus and stone flavors with nice density and texture,  with juicy acids, berry flavors and saline minerals in the finish. This is drinking beautifully now (August 2022) and through the winter. This is a fabulous value and highly recommended.(Note: Some bottles have naturally occuring tartrate crystals which disappear when chilled and have no effect on flavor)

Misc. Spirits

War & Rust Quinquina Aperitif Wine 500ml

A beautiful American aromatized wine in the style of Italian Chinato, I've been a huge fan of this quinquina for a while, and it's had a place at my Thanksgiving table for a number of years now. (Oskar Kostecki)  A little from the wine-maker: "Originally I took Barolo Chinato for inspiration, and cinchona bark remains one of the main ingredients, but in both recipe and method, it has become something different than chinato. To make it, I arrest fermentation by adding brandy when there is still sugar in the must. This makes for a slightly different sweetness level each harvest, so I always have to adjust the the bittering agents, which gets me tinkering with the other ingredients, so the recipe changes a bit every year. I use about 20 different herbs, barks, roots and botanicals including: cinchona bark, gentian, wormwood, anise, myrrh, Virginia juniper, rose petal, chamomile, and ginger root.I started it while working in Sonoma County, so it was originally made from Pinot Noir, and I made a half barrel for the first batch. It has followed me around in my day jobs, so these days there is a lot of Cabernet Franc, but there's Tannat, there's Petit Verdot, there's even Petit Manseng. I leave in the stems, as their flavor seems to work with the whole. It now has more than enough Virginia fruit that I could legally label it Virginia, but since there are over 20 herbs and botanicals, I don't bother with a place name. It is a pseudo-solera in that I have a mother batch, bottle some of it, make more at the next harvest, and then add it to the mother. It has wine going back to 2007. I don't filter it. If it ferments in the bottle one day, maybe I will change that, but I'm pretty sure that would take something away." Ben Jordan

Portugal Table

Lés-a-lés 2018 DOC Bucelas Arinto de Pedra e Cal

From the only all white D.O. in Portugal, this is an excellent Arinto, showcasing the textured, waxy side of the varietal. Though many Arinto bottlings from Portugal are known for their saltiness and fresh acidity, this is certainly an exception. Here is Arinto that reminds of Chenin Blanc, with a petroly Riesling-like side.

Bodegas Akutain 2015 Rioja Reserva

Jon Peñagarikano Akutain, the second-generation owner of Bodegas Akutain, is making some of our favorite, classicly styled Riojas. Everything at the esate is traditional: hand-harvesting from six hectares of estate vineyards, fermentation with natural yeasts and without temperature control, and aging (with racking) in used American oak barrels. The 2015 Reserva is almost entirely Tempranillo from higher altitude plots in Rioja Alta, aged for two years and ten months in neutral (mainly American) oak barrels. The nose shows classic Rioja character: cherry, dried tobacco, and earth with just a hint of that herbal, dill-like note that signals the use of American oak barrels. This offers tons of pleasure right now, and could certainly be held for the next 10 to 15 years

Bodegas Akutain 2018 Rioja Crianza

Akutain is an estate that we have fallen in love with here at Chambers Street. The Reserva and Gran Reserva were revelations for us, and this Crianza is the perfect prelude, truly resembling a Reserva in style. Mostly Tempranillo with some Garnacha, indigenous yeast fermentation, and aging for 1 year and 9 months in old oak and 1 year in bottle.  Leathery tannins, elegant, earthy tones, all around a total winner, and sure to be your new favorite Rioja, especially at this price point. -EL

La Zafra 2019 Alicante Tinto 'Nuet' Monastrell

La Zafra is putting Alicante on the map, and crafting fresh, balanced wines from this hot and arid climate. Monastrell is the red grape here, otherwise known as Mourvedre in France. To me, a good Monastrell smells like roasted meat, leather, and hundreds of wild herbs, and this one delivers on every count. Thanks to the Mar and Ignacio's approach - they search for freshness by farming organically and doing short macerations - this is a wine with loads of character ("garrigue" comes to mind), that is a joy to drink.  A great middle ground between light and full bodied. As appropriate with a light chill and snacks as it is with grilled meat and BBQ  -EL

Swick Wines 2021 Columbia Valley (Washington) The Flood

Joe Swick does it again! Here is a tasty, cheerful blend from Washington State (Columbia Gorge) and Oregon fruit, macerated on the skins for an enchanting orange hue. 30/30 Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer, with a host of other grapes, including Pinot Auxerrois and Riesling. The Gewurz takes care of the floral/spice aromatics, and the Chardonnay gives nice weight to the palate. Not too light, not too tannic, it's a really nicely balanced orange wine. Nice work Joe!  -EL
