Bodegas Altos de Montanchez 2020 Extremadura 'Vegas Altas' Eva de los Santos

This is an impressive value from the Extremadura region in Spain. Eva de los Santos is the local grape, which reminds us very much of a village-level Muscadet. Similarly neutral on the nose, the palate is fresh and balanced, with stone fruit, stones, and ample acidity. Certainly a bit lower on the acid than most Muscadet, the comparison is still apt, and any fan of a clean, dry white should definitely try a bottle! -EL

Companyia Viticola Sileo 2019 Montsant

This is the newest project from Agusti Torello Roca, focused on producing red wines from the Montsant DO. Mostly Garnacha, with a small percentage of Carignan, from a mixture of limestone, clay and granite soils. Fermentation is in stainless steel and aging is in 500L used French barrels. This is a beautiful Montsant that favors balance and acidity over extraction, new oak, and high alcohol.   -EL

Beck-Hartweg VDF Tout Naturellement Petillant Rosé (Pet-Nat)

Yowza! This is the first Pet-Nat that Florian and Mathilde produced, and it's full of tangy red fruits and a bit of a sour candy vibe. Unfiltered. "Fresh, crisp, expressive juice!" PLEASE NOTE*** It appears that this wine may not have been disgorged, so it must be fully chilled, and even then, there is a great chance that it will "explode" just a bit. Open over a sink or outside for best results, and make sure to have a glass handy.  -EL

Beck-Hartweg 2018 Vin d'Alsace Pinot Noir "F" (Frankstein)

Though the fruit for this bottling all comes from the Grand Cru Frankstein vineyard, Pinot Noir does not have Grand Cru status in Frankstein (only white varieties are awarded Grand Cru Frankstein status), hence the name "F," for Frankstein. This is elegant, and red fruited, like a classic Burgundian Pinot, but also shows some peppery, darker fruit more reminiscent of a regional Alsace expression. Grapes see about 2 weeks of maceration, with occasional delicate pouring of a few liters on the cap to avoid oxidation, otherwise, very little extraction. The wine, is however very present on the mid-palate, and though approachable now, should be really enjoyable in the next 1-3 years.

Beck-Hartweg 2018 Vin d'Alsace Granit

This is a field blend that was made to show the character of the soil in Dambach. Florian and Mathilde selected three vineyards that produced what they call the most "salivant" wines (salivant roughly translates to mouth-watering). This quality is common with wines that come from granite terroir, hence the name of this cuvée. The area around Dambach-la-Ville is known for a high percentage of granitic soils, so this is very much a Dambach wine. A blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Riesling, it has a faint pink hue, and a fascinating saline/mineral quality. No SO2 added.

Frick 2018 Alsace Pinot Gris Maceration

Though it seems like a relatively new category, it turns out winemakers in Alsace have been making skin contact wines for some time. The first may have been Bannwarth, who experimented with qvevri (georgian clay anforae). Then, along with the Fricks, JP Rietsch, Patrick Meyer, and Bruno Scheuller. This is Pinot Gris with 10 days of skin contact and no sulfites added. The color is a deep auburn/ruby in the glass, almost reminiscent of a light red. On the palate, it's balanced and clean, with faint tannin, peach fuzz, and subtle red fruit.  -EL

The wine shows a golden color with orange highlights and intense aromas of yuzu, lemon mint and mandarine. The palate is dry, vibrant and persistent, with a nice touch of tannin and flavors of citrus zest and a long very mineral finish.

This is a vibrant dry Sylvaner, drinking more like a dry Riesling. Aromas of yellow fruits, flowery hay, white pepper and wet limestone. Full-bodied and dry, the palate is well-structured and mineral with flavors of white peach, black peppercorn and limestone with a very long saline finish. Serve this lovely dry Sylvaner with shellfish, grilled fish and fish in sauce, and roast chicken with lemon and rosemary.

The 2018 Frick Gewurstraminer Macération is from two parcels: Terroir Krottenfues, soil marno-gréseux, high on a slope above grand Cru Vorbourg, and from a limestone terroir below Grand Cru Steinert, facing due east. Grapes see ten-days of whole-cluster maceration before pressing, and the wine is matured on its lees for six months in hundred year-old foudres. The wine shows a bright and luminous orange tinted color and complex aromas or rose, cinnamon, cardamon, white pepper and orange zest. It's dry, ample and rich with discreet tannins and flavors of white fruits, citrus, rosewater, ginger, pepper, with a long spicy finish. Serve this dry Gewurztraminer as an aperitif or with Asian and spicy dishes of fish, vegetables or white meats.

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

Rietsch, Jean Pierre 2018 VDF Alsace Quelqu'un Sylvaner

Years ago, I bought a magnum of Grand Cru Zotzenberg Sylvaner from JP Rietsch and our beloved former colleague Amanda Bowman and I opened it for a bunch of winemakers from Languedoc-Rousillon later that trip. After pouring a few glasses, we had winemakers chasing after us to try this amazing wine! I've been hoping to see the wine in New York ever since, and though this is not the same bottling, it's 100% Sylvaner from the Zoztenberg Grand Cru, and it is certainly spot on. There's a short maceration on the skins here, but mostly to lend subtle texture and grip. Aging is in large foudres for 33 months. Crystalline and mineral, with medium weight. -EL

The 2019 Regnié from Geroges Descombes is a delicious and 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 high-toned earthy, meaty  aromas of red and black currant, black raspberry, black cherry, rose, violets, and licorice. The palate has soft and finely integrated tannins and a beautiful texture, showing notes of ripe strawberry, plum and raspberry liqueur, blackberry, pomegranate, orange peel, baking spice and a granitic minerality, especially on the supple, complex and satisfying finish. This is a very versatile wine, really a superb Beaujolais - drink now or hold for 5 to 8 years - highly recommended!

Jean-Paul Brun has never faltered in making some of our favorite, classic wines from Beaujolais. He always vinifies his rosé traditionally preferring Burgundian winemaking to the Beaujolais norm of carbonic maceration, and given the results, we agree! It is light, pale pink in color with fresh strawberry, red raspberry, and a hint of orange blossom. This wine is perfect for outdoor drinking this summer, with or without food. Pure vin de soif!

Our biodynamic friends, the Hubert family, make the lovely  Chateau La Grolet "Origines" from old vines of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. The 2019 shows a deep red/black color with high-toned aromas of ripe cassis and black raspberry with cedar, brown spice and earth, really quite pretty. The palate is supple, elegant and well-structured with cassis and red fruits over firm acidity with earth and mineral flavors. This is a real Bordeaux of terroir that is delicious now especially if decanted many hours in advance or opened the night before. Cellaring for five to ten years will create a lovely mature wine.

La Grave Figeac 2015 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The Clauzel family does not disappoint with the 2015! This wine is a blend of organically-farmed 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, planted on sand and gravel soils. Fermented with native yeasts and aged for about 15 months in barrel. The robe is a deep ruby hue. The nose offers elegant aromas of black raspberry, cassis, violets, a touch of leather, and loamy soil. The mid-weight palate has good concentration and lift, with ripe black fruit character,  and fine-grained tannins carrying over on a long, succulent, layered finish. This displays none of the roasted notes of the somewhat torrid vintage and is deeply satisfying, classic St. Emilion. Delicious now, but possesses the balance to bode well for mid-term aging (say 7-10 ten years).  This should pair beautifully with roast lamb, hanger steak, or duck confit, though it wouldn't be out of place with tagine or mushroom risotto. La Grave Figeac continues to impress with their well-priced, organic St Emilion. John McIlwain

"Le Clos des Topes Bizot" is a unique spot, high on the slope in Beaune just above the 1er Cru "L'Ecu," facing east, in a terroir of clay and pebbles over limestone.

The 2018 Clos de Topes Bizot was kept on the lees longer due to the ripeness of the vintage. The wine shows floral ripe white fruits, apricot and almond; the palate is rich and expressive with white fruits, pineapple, citrus and mineral flavors that continue in the long finish. This is a delicous and affordable white Burgundy to serve with lobster, shrimp, a full-flavored fish dish and white meats. David Lillie

From vines just outside Pouilly itself, this sees nearly two years in oak. Apparently in 2019, they had to fight to get AOC status for this.

Barbichon NV base 16 Champagne Brut Blanc de Noirs

From year to year there seem to be few greater values in Champagne than those of biodynamic grower Thomas Barbichon in Gyé-sur-Seine in the Aube. From his 9 HA domaine he produces wines of purity, elegance, and precision. The current disgorgement of his Blanc de Noirs is Pinot Noir-dominant. The 2016 base Barbichon Blanc de Noirs is comprised of 89% Pinot Noir and 11% Pinot Meunier. The farming is Demeter certified. The robe has a faint peach hue.  The nose is attractively floral and red-fruited with aromas of wild strawberry, sour cherry, and crushed herbs.The palate is bright and vibrant with flavors of orange oil, a fine line of minerality, with a soft mousse and fine bead.The finish is expansive and tangy with a hint of biscuit on the back end. Lovely Champagne and an excellent value. (disgorged 5/16/2019, 2 g/l dosage)  John McIlwain

This has great flair and brio and should gain in nuance with a time in the cellar, provided one can keep their hands of their stash. Highly recommended.  John McIiwain

Déhu, Benoît NV Champagne Brut Nature La Rue des Noyers b16

For those who dismiss the minerality and terroir specificity of Pinot Meunier in the Vallée de la Marne, Benoit Déhu's La Rue des Noyers makes a compelling case for the grape's expressiveness. From a 1.7 hectare plot of biodynamically farmed vines in the the eponymous lieu-dit in Fossoy, Benoit produces a Champagne of great suppleness and verve. The grapes are fermented in oak with native yeasts, aged under cork, and is bottled without dosage. The 2016 has a lovely nose redolent of ripe peach, salted plum, and wild strawberry. The palate is rich and supple on the attack with ripe stone fruit flavors girded with a salty, chalky core giving way to a long mouth-watering finish. This is delicious now, but has enough underlying structure to bode well for further development. This was lovely with an array of sushi, but I'd be delighted to pair this with grilled salmon or butter-poached lobster. John McIlwain

The 2018 shows high-toned aromas of ripe black cherry and red currant fruit with violet, brown spice, earth and citrus, quite elegant. The palate is dense and earthy with sappy black cherry and black raspberry - intensely mineral with firm acidity, earth and black fruits that linger in the long finish. This is a quite elegant, beautifully balanced and "mineral" Burgundy at a very reasonable price, that will benefit from a few hours open or three to five years of cellaring.  David Lillie

When life gives you a few extra bottles of Barthod Les Bons Bâtons, maybe check in on one. 2018 is notable as a solar vintage and there are plenty of examples of blowsy, roasted, and firmly structured wines which can make for tough going, but in many cases there are wines that possess that extra degree of intensity and punch, but without any of the coarseness, weight, or excess of the year. And I am happy to report the Bourgogne at Chez Barthod is far more reflective of energy over mass. The robe has a dark ruby hue, limpid to the rim. The nose is a bit reserved on opening, more inscrutable than muted, but an hour open and things unfurl. This offers aromas of crushed strawberries, warm soft wild raspberry, florals that show a bit of tea rose with notes of wild violet and pastille, underlain by hints of loam, black tea, and spice. The palate is a touch more generous than is customary for the cuvée, but leans more to ripe red fruits than black, and displays a bit more juicy succulence than some years, but has a fine earthy core and sneaky tannins beneath the ripe fruit. The finish is persistent and detailed (oh, there’s that limestone!) and offers enough freshness to summon the next sip. This is a delight and if more exuberant than is typical at the Domaine, it is lovely to drink now and has a nice upside if you can put away a couple of bottles. John McIlwain

Breuer, George 2019 Rauenthal Estate Riesling Trocken

Bottled under screw cap. The palate is a very pale yellow with greenish flecks. Aromatically unrevealing verging on dumb upon opening. With air the nose reveal pretty aromas of white peach, Mirabelle plum, be pollen and herbs. The palate is a touch more expansive that of the Rudesheim Estate bottling, with a bit more gras, but slightly less tension. Notwithstanding, flavors of stone fruit, citrus peel, wet rock, and green tea dominate with notes of malt, pollen, and peach skin making up the balance of the profile. This is a touch more overtly ripe with a  suspicion of sweetness cloaking the salty, vibrant core of stone within. This is by no means flabby, but one does get the sense that with time in the cellar for the ripeness to integrate with the structure, this could really over-perform its class. A fine pairing with risotto with yellow peppers and green beans. Lovely bottle with plenty of charm and an excellent upside. John McIlwain

Busch, Clemens 2019 Mosel Pündericher Marienburg Riesling Grosses Gewächs

The Marienburg GG comes an all from gray slate parcel. Fermented with native yeast. Aged in fuder, bottled with low sulfur. The 2019 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Riesling Großes Gewächs has a pale green-yellow robe. The nose offers an attractive array of wild flower and red fruit aromas, with hints of orange oil, ginger, and wet slate. The palate is concentrated and coiled, with ripe orchard fruit entwines with a firm mineral core on a long, persistent finish. This is only showing nascent complexity, but is showing great promise and should really begin strutting its stuff with another 3-5 years in the bottle and beyond. John McIlwain

Meyer, Stefan 2019 Pfalz Riesling Trocken 1L

Hailing from the Pfalz, Germany directly north of Alsace, this is a trocken (dry) riesling of brilliant purity! Immediate aromas of petrol, kefir lime, white peach and wet rocks blast the nose. On the palate, flavors of limeade and  peach nectar burst with vivid acidity and minerality. Sporting a long, dry yet juicy finish, this is a super refreshing , classic riesling perfect for end of summer pleasure. I'd serve it with grilled swordfish and a veggie medley of zucchini, cherry tomatoes, cipolline onions with a balsamic glaze (last night's dinner pairing!) or a spicy Thai seafood curry.  Giselle Hamburg

Colombera & Garella 2019 Coste della Sesia

This vibrant red 70% Nebbiolo, 15% Vespolina, and 15% Croatina. Cristiano Garella teamed up with Giacomo and Carlo Colombera to produce wines in the Northeastern corner of the Piedmont, known as Alto-Piemonte. Christiano had been associated with a few producers in the area, focused on revitalizing a once-prominent wine producing region, and Carlo had been growing grapes in Bramaterra since the 90s. The bottle comes from the appellation of Coste Della Sesia, with volcanic-sandy soils. The vines have Southwestern exposure and have an average age of 40 years. All fruit is picked by hand and ferments for 14 days in stainless steel without temperature control. The wine ages for 10 to 12 months in used barriques before bottling. Aromas of redcurrant  and strawberry contrasts those of graphite, bell pepper, mint. The palate has dark plum, ripe black cherry and spicy, cracked black pepper. High acid and strong tannin last in the mouth long after the sip. A lovely chew. The finish has a hint of sour blackberry, bolstered by a snappy mineral drive. Great wine! David Hatzopoulos

Iuli 2019 Vino Rosso 'Natalin' Grignolino

Grignolino farmed organically from a few parcels owned and rented by Fabrizio Iuli. Fabrizio is the only winemaker in the village of Montaldo di Cerrina, carrying on a tradition started by his grandfather, who planted vines in the 1930s. Fabrizio's first vintage was in 1998 and he is proud of the classic Piedmontese wines he creates. The Natalin is fermented in cement with native yeasts. Aged in cement for around 7 months. The  Natalin 2019 is a lovely shade of black cherry in the glass. On the nose, this Grignolino has beautifully unique fruit, with the scent of pungent ruby red grapefruit and small forest plums, with accents of smoke and fresh violets. On the palate, there is blood orange, with juicy red currant, and a minerally earthiness. Structurally, the wine is set by fantastic tannic form, with a zing of medium acidity. David Hatzopoulos

Cardedu 2019 Vermentino di Sardegna Nuo

Coming from vines in San Vito, Sardinia, planted to the region's grumbling granite soils, mixed with red-tinted quartz. Vine age is 10 years. Grapes harvested in late August and early September. In the cellar, the fermentation is natural, in stainless steel, including 6-8 hours of skins contact. The wine ages in 1950s concrete tanks before being bottled without filtration. This Vermentino has an incredibly special nose. A bouquet of herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary), with sliced, chilled yellow tomato slices and  shaved parmigiana. The palate has tart, small yellow apples, lemon zest, and more green herbs. The structure is bright, with a swish of delicious, tender texture - ending with a long salty finish peaked with great acid. David Hatzopoulos

Lombardo, Giordano 2020 Gavi di Gavi Vigna San Martino

The Lombardo Gavi is a staple at Chambers. The 2020 has bright fruit of apricot and lemon, zesty minerality, and a medium mouthfeel. Even though there is a bit of weight on the palate, the wine also shows a touch of effervescence. A great bottle for anyone looking for a wine with ripe yellow fruits and a dynamic texture.

Montoni 2020 Sicilia IGT Grillo Timpa

From the eastern facing, sandy slopes of the Grillo della Timpa Sicilia DOC, Fuedo Montoni delivers a refreshing but complex wine. 30 year old vines, planted at 700 meters above sea level, and handled under certified organic methods. Fermentation happens in cement, and for a portion of that time, the juice is in contact with the grape skins. The wine then ages in cement, in contact with the lees, for 6 months. The result is a complex, but utterly fresh glass of white. The color is clean lemon. The nose offers aromas of golden apple, pear, apricot and white flowers. Flavors are of dried lemon, green herbs, lime zest, salt and white pepper. The skin maceration definitely gives the wine a touch of tannic stability, like banisters to the wine's highly angled, persistent acidity. Really enjoyable wine that wakes up the palate.

Picariello 2020 Greco di Tufo

The 2020 Greco di Tufo is produced from 100% organically farmed Greco, vines planted in the 90s. Volcanic soils of clay, limestone and sandstone. Harvest takes place by hand in late October. Low temperature natural fermentation in stainless, before 8 additional months aging in stainless, on the lees. Bottle aging for an additional 3 months before release. No fining, no filtration. The wine is only slightly darker in the glass than the Fiano Irpinia is, but expression-wise it is much more savory. The wine displays aromas of newly peeled yellow and orange citrus skins, with accents of clove, white pepper, smoke and salt. On the palate, there are flavors of tangerine, garden herbs, and dried papaya. In my mind, this is the perfect cold weather white. A little spicy, with a little warmth in fruit, but bright with medium acidity and engaging with a whisper of tannin. David Hatzopoulos

Baudry 2018 Chinon Le Clos Guillot

Le Clos Guillot is a beautiful south-east facing vineyard, just east of the town of Chinon, above the Clos de l'Olive and adjacent to Le Chêne Vert. The upper slope of the parcel is clay over limestone (the lower part has sand and gravel over the rock, which permitted a tiny separate production from franc de pied vines, now mostly deceased) and the vines are young, planted from 1993 to 2000. Fermentation in wooden cuves, 12 months of aging in three to ten year-old barriques, 9 additional months in unlined cement vats. We have been buying this wine since it's first production in 2000 – it's one of the most elegant and Burgundian of Chinons. It's become incrreasingly difficult to write superlatives about this wine, as each vintage since 2014 has been superb in it's own way. And now 2018, a vintage the Baudrys describe as "magnificent!" The ripeness of fruit in this vintage diplays a different side of Cabernet Franc with the more traditional light raspberry/strawberry aromatics enhanced by darker fruits: blackberry, black raspberry and boysenberry with violet and earth, that remain vibrant and bright. The color is deep black with a purple rim. The palate shows sensational purity, freshness and elegance with a fabulous dense, silky, calcaire texture and fabulous length of pure black fruits and minerals. While this wine is amazingly delicious now, it should be very interesting with long cellaring as well. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2019 Touraine KO In Cot We Trust

Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme's "In Cot We Trust" is one of the most vibrant, fascinating and delicious Malbecs of the Loire! From  a single parcel called "les Automnes" with 45 year-old vines on clay/limestone soils, 2 week whole-cluster maceration, fermentation and aging for 18 months in 500L demi-muids, zero added SO2. 2019 is another great vintage for this soulful wine! (Please decant or open a few hours in advance) The wine shows an opaque dark red color and complex aromas of ripe blackberry and plum, violet, earth, roast meat, citrus peel and mint, very changeable and bright. The palate is fresh and bright with cool acidity under dense stony black fruits, plum skin and lighter berry fruits, menthol and stone that linger in the long finish. Fascinating now, this should be very interesting in 5 to 10 years. Highly recommended for lovers of natural wine, serve cool.  David Lillie

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2019 Vin de France Tesniere Blanc (Menu Pineau)

Menu Pineau, also known as "Arbois" is described in Wine Grapes  (J. Robinson et al.) as "an old variety from the Val de Loire named after its similarity to Gros Pineau (Chenin Blanc)...although it has nothing to do with the village called Arbois in the Franche-Comté." It is an offspring of Gouais Blanc, along with many other European grapes, and is "a little more rustic, but less acid than Chenin Blanc," according to Thierry Puzelat. The 2019 La Tesnière Blanc by Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme is from organically-grown vines, 75% Menu Pineau and 25% Chenin Blanc. The wine shows a bright pale gold color and is slightly petillant when opened. Subtle aromas of grapefruit, dried pear and apple, dried herbs, stone and caramel. The palate is austere and stony, with firm acidity and flavors of hazelnut, citrus, baked apple, earth and brown spice. A really fascinating wine and a great pairing with sushi, grilled fish with fennel, lemon chicken, aged goat cheeses and much more. Highly recommended to lovers of unique natural wines.

This is a bold expression of Pineau d'Aunis from Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme, from vines near the Cher river  on clay with silex in organic and biodynamic farming. Aged in old futs and demi-muids, bottled without filtration, minimal SO2. The 2020 shows a pretty light red color with aromas of ripe raspberry and violets, really lovely. The palate is vibrant and bright with raspberry, cranberry and cherry with lip-smacking acidity and a beautifully refreshing finish of minerals and juicy red fruits. This is a delightfully refreshing and forward version of Pineau d'Aunis - serve cool and be happy!  David Lillie

Coulaine 2017 Chinon Les Picasses

This is a superb "les Picasses" from Jean de Bonnaventure at Chateau de Coulaine, which has been practising organic and biodynamic agriculture since  1988. The parcel is at the top of the vineyard with southern exposure, on the classic clay/limestone "tuffeau" in Beaumont-en-Veron. This quite dense and powerful Chinon is aged in 15% new barrels and barrels of one and two wines. The 2017 is in a really nice place at the moment. Elegant tannins, pronounced mineral depth, with medium-weight and subtle black fruit and earth. All of the elements are in harmony here. A classic Chinon.

Delrieu, Julien 2019 Vin de France Le Jeau Rouge

Julien Delrieu  has a touch for chenin for sure, but also for red. This blend of Grolleau and Cabernet Franc is a pure "gourmandise," which is not a common thing to say when you know the wine is made in Anjou Noir. But the combination of faluns (a mix of limestone and sandy soils full of seashells) and deep gravelly soil and clay don't bring the usual, rustic tannic structure the reds from the region can have, and even more when the organic farming and the care given to the vines make you think more about gardening than viticulture. This cuvée comes from two plots, the main one giving the name to the wine. Grapes are vinified in fiberglass tank, whole bunches for the grolleau, half for the cabernet, with very gentle pigeage, then bottled in the spring with a hint of sulfur. A very joyful wine, explosive with little red wild berries, fenugreek, peony, and a hint of pepper, the palate is just vibrant and delicious, very Loire-like, crunchy with no green whatsoever but a gentle herbal quality enhancing the fruit. A little chill will make it even better.  PL.

Guion 2017 Bourgueil Deux Monts

From  70-year-old vines in "Petits Monts" and "Grand Monts" towards the top of the slope above Benais, facing roughly south-west, clay over Turonien limestone (tuffeau, craie micacée). This is the terroir giving the most elegant and age-worthy Bourgueils.  18-month élevage ; 40% in cuve inox, 20% in one new 400 liter barrel, 20% in one-year and 20% in two-year old barrels, assembled two months before bottling. Our first taste of the 2017 "Deux Monts" revealed it to be a superb wine, quite deep and ripe but still light on its feet and with a particularly long and focused finish. Says Stéphane "the weather in 2017 was quite warm in spring and summer with a bit of rain in september - the wine is quite floral with ripe red fruits and mineral flavors on the palate with round, supple tannins and the limestone terroir quite present in the finish."  It's a beautiful wine showing the old vines and great terroir...

Le Briseau 2019 Vin de France Verre des Poetes

The Le Briseau 2019 "Verre des Poetes" from Nathalie Heredia, contains juice from over 100 year-old franc de pied vines. The color is a fairly light red/amber. The aromas are subtle and pretty with black raspberry, wild strawberry, cranberry, plum and violet. The palate is light but quite dense and dark, meaty and earthy with cherry skin and mineral flavors, with a chalky and slightly bitter finish. This will need years in the cellar or a very long decant - an intiguing wine of contemplation that will need time to reveal it's poetry. (Please note - there is no added preservative, consume on the day opened.)

This is a new addition to the Sablonnettes lineup, a skin contact (Blanc de Macération) of Chenin Blanc, with subtle peachy hue, and lovely stone fruit on the palate. From the bottle: "Plus aromatique et plus tannique que son p'tit frère (le p'tit blanc), le zeste qui sauve le vigneron!"  Loosely translated: More aromatic and tannic then its little brother (P'tit Blanc), the zest (alternatively, spark) which saves the winemaker! This would be great with marinated and grilled veggies, cheeses, and fish dishes.   -EL

Pinon 2016 Vouvray "Le 16"

100% Chenin Blanc. Pinon's only white wine in this very difficult and short vintage in which the estate lost 75% of its harvest. The "Le 2016" replaces the usual Trois Argiles, Silex Noir and Les Deronnières bottlings, with fruit from a range of those and other parcels. The vines average 40 years in age, are certified organic and were hand-harvested from October 10-18. Fermentation took place spontaneously with natural yeasts and lasted 2-3 months in wood vats. The wine was aged 4-5 months on its fine lees in old tonneaux (large oak barrels) and gently filtered before bottling in April 2017 with 22.4 grams/liter of residual sugar (with pH 3.07).  Total production of Le 2016 was 1600 cases (a yield of only 11 hl/ha). The wine shows lovely aromas of lime-flower, honeyed citrus, dried white fruis and earth. Firm lemony acidity and mineral flavors underlie  ripe white fruits and lemon confit. The finish is very long with citrus,honey, pear and stone . Technically a Demi-Sec, the wine is balanced by the bright citrusy acids and will pair well with charcuterie, fish in sauce and white meats. Cellar for twenty to thirty years to create a fabulous mature Vouvray.  David Lillie

Raffault, Olga 2015 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. 2015 was a very successful vintage for Loire reds, which generally showed deep lush fruit, firm acidity and moderate alcohol - a relatively full-bodied vintage with a bit more ripeness and sap, and a bit less acidity, than the 2014 .  The 2015 Raffault "Les Picasses" is a quite full-bodied wine, showing aromas of ripe strawberry and black raspberry with pepper and soil notes, deep and pretty.  The palate is dense with black raspberry confit, prune, citrus, earth,  licorice and cocoa with a core of mineral and earthy flavors and a long fresh finish, quite balanced and elegant. The wine aged mostly in 2,000 liter foudre and inox cuves to preserve the fruit. Ripe and forward enough to drink now with anything from roast chicken to steak, the 2015 should age beautifully, perhaps best 2020 to 2035 and beyond...? David Lillie

We love the wines of Benoit and Celine Blet at Les Terres Blanches in Oiron, grown on unique terroirs of limestone marls, quarts and sandstone.  "Les Trois Poiriers" shows elegant aromas of pear, apple and minerals and a beautifully silky palate with white fruit, herbal, citrus, spice and stone flavors with excellent length. "Elegant" is the key word for this very unique and delicious wine, certainly one of the best values in Chenin Blanc you'll find anywhere. Drink over the next five years.  David Lillie

The bunches are hand-harvesed and direct-pressed into tank, where the wine ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and goes through malo as well.

The lovely 2020 shows spicy strawberry/cherry aromas, quite floral and ripe; the palate is earthyand saline beneath pretty strawbeery/raspberry fruit with hints of spice and citrus. The finish is long with lingering stone and fruit flavors, fresh and earthy, benefitting from the minimal addition of sulfur - a delicious, natural rosé...

 Our friend Hervé Villemade made another gorgeous "Les Ardilles" in 2019. Made from 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Gamay grown on sandy  clay with silex over limestone in Cheverny with yields of about 25 hl/ha. There was a 20-day maceration with light extraction followed by aging in  old barrels, with no added SO2 during vinificaton. The wine is particularly ripe, elegant and intriquing in the excellent 2019 vintage. The nose is a bit closed, with deep, brambly black cherry/black raspberry fruit with earth and minerals, adding notes of citrus peel, spice and licorice with air. The palate is dense and elegant with deep, sapid black cherry and raspberry, chalky and full with velvety tannins and firm acidity. The finish is clean, elegant and long with beautiful sapid, ripe black fruits, minerals and citrus. Just a great natural wine. Decant if drinking now, best 2023 - 2030.

The lovely aromas are of raspberry, blood orange, tart plum, brown spice, earth and tea, for starters. The palate is soft, silky and refreshing with black fruits mingled with earth, citrus, stone and tea with  plum and raspberry emerging in the finish. Any lover of natural wine should try this!  No added SO2, 100% delicious.

Clos Des Boutes 2020 IGP Gard Les Fagnes (Carignan Blanc)

A biodynamic wine from the Costiere de Nimes appelation. A nose with notes of candied white fruits, Mirabelle plum, and a hint of flowers... Palate: beautiful body and volume, and a long finish with fine bitter notes. A lovely success for this Carignan Blanc! Giselle Hamburg

Domaine Lupin 2015 Frangy Cuvee du Pepe

The elegance of Domaine Lupin’s 2015 Roussette de Savoie Frangy ‘Cuvée du Pépé’ Vielles Vignes is amazing, flawlessly co-existing with (and fabulously woven around) the wines dramatic beam of minerality and high acidity. From 100% Altesse from the village of Frangy. Vines aging 60+ years, planted by Bruno Lupin's grandfather. The wine goes through full malo, before aging on the fine lees in enameled steel tanks for a year. A fiercely beautiful wine. The nose is not as lean as the younger vine bottling above. It shows less citrus and more stone fruit from the beginning. Aromas of yellow peaches and plums, along with golden apples, give a platform for fainter whiffs of black tea, sea grass, and oyster shells. The wine remains very fragrant hours after opening, losing some of the marine qualities and taking on more spice and floral character. The palate is led by rich flavors of apple and pear, along with lemon zest and freshly milled black pepper. There is a wonderful note of caramel on the finish that enhances based on the amount of time in glass, resulting in a creaminess in texture that is beyond lovely, laying over that boldly focused acidity and stoniness. This bottle should be great for another 10 years, but I obviously think the world of it today. David Hatzopoulos

Domaine Maestracci 2019 Corse Calvi Clos Reginu

Domaine Maestracci makes some of the best value wines in Corsica, a region where increased exposure and tariffs has driven up prices tremendously in recent years. They are located in Calvi, with vines planted in on the foothills of a mountain range that rises 1500 meters above the Mediterranean. The estate is Demeter-certified biodynamic and makes vibrant earthy wines . Clos Reginu is made from their youngest vines and is a lively joyous wine. It's an assemblage of Grenache, Niellucio, Sciaccarellu, Syrah and Mourvedre and marked by red fruit both juicy and dried, a touch of iron and leather and a bright energetic finish. This is terrific for the price and should be bought in quantity. Sam Ehrlich

Fermentation is with indigenous yeast, as always, and aging is in large used barrels. Aromas of orchard fruit and a slight oxidative hint.  -EL

Finot, Thomas 2018 Coteaux Grésivaudan (Isere) Persan

Thomas Finot produces this wine from Persan, a rare grape variety indigenous to the Isère, from a blend of massale selection old and young vines. The color here is dark, with a black/red core and light red edges. The nose has a vibrant mix of fruit and spices, including cumin, leafy green herbs, black pepper and deep, savory dark cherry. The palate is just as complex, with plum and orange peel, along with refreshing notes of mint and graphite. The minerally finish turns into something lingering and smoky. The wine is rather tannic, with great acidity. If you are fan of the Rhone, you must try Finot's Persan! David Hatzopoulos

Laguerre 2018 Côtes du Roussillon Le Ciste Blanc

 Eric Laguerre's "Le Ciste," (named after a flowering bush in and around his vineyards) is certainly one of the most distinctive whites of the Roussillon. Grown in Eric's high-elevation terroir on acidic soils of decomposed granite, the wine is made from Marsanne, Roussanne, Rolle (Vermentino), Grenache Blanc and Maccabeu. Yields are about 20 Hl/Ha, harvesting is by hand in small baskets, fermentation (wild yeasts) and aging is in small barrels. Complex aromas of lemon oil, thyme, hay and white fruits—a lovely melange with contributions from each variety and especially showing the Marsanne and Roussanne. The palate is dense, stony and saline with herbal, citrus, almond and white fruit flavors. The finish is long with mineral acids and white fruits that linger on the palate. Complex and distinctive as a young wine, this will accompany grilled fish as well as fish and chicken in sauce and goat cheeses, and should develop nicely with a few years of cellaring. Really a Grand Cru of the Roussillon and a great value! David Lillie

Nicolas Gonin 2019 Isère - Balmes Dauphinoises Viognier

From Viognier planted in 2009, on slopes with southern exposure in the Isère. Soils are gravely with pebbles onto of a sandstone subsoil. Fermented and aged in tank to preserve the grape's true flavors. This Viognier shows a full but flashy gold in the glass. Like his Persan, the nose here is powerful in character. Great aromas of apricot, roasted almonds, white tea and fresh pine come first, followed by darker smells of earl grey and smoke. It is just as expressive in flavor, showing papaya, cured lemon, lime zest and salt. A long, minerally finish rides a beam of grand acidity, extending through a generous, supple mouthfeel.

Renardat-Fache 2020 Bugey Cerdon Méthode Ancestrale

The 2020 Renardat Bugey Cerdon, the estate's "normal" cuvee, has a much higher percentage of Poulsard this year (58% Gamay and 42% Poulsard) which gives the wine a lighter, dryer feel, even though the sugar level remains about the same. The color is a clear raspberry in the glass. The nose also shows aromas of raspberry, teamed up with blueberry and strawberry, along with swaths of healthy grass, citrus peel, dark flowers and a thin ribbon of Alpine smoke. That same medley of berries is present on the palate, with the addition of  a slightly rounder flavor of cherry and a hint of an almost savory taste of blood orange. On the tongue, the wine is clean and zesty, with soft bubbles, medium acidity, and a dashing mineral core. The 2019 was a great wine... but the 2020 might be better!

Renardat-Fache 2020 Vin de France Au Commencement

The sensational new Renardat-Fache 2020 "Au Commencement," is made in a very old-fashioned style with less residual sugar and with 100% Poulsard, which the Renardats are proud to have in their vineyards. The wine finished at 11.5% alcohol with 17 grams of residual sugar and is classifed as a Vin de France because the Cerdon AOC does not permit pure Poulsard wines. (The wine has no added SO2 and was not disgorged - being stilll on the lees, be sure to stand the bottle up for a while before opening.) Very little of this beautiful juice was made. Completely different profile not just because of the lack of sweetness clocking in at 11.5 %, but also because of the slight bitter orange note reminiscent of Aperol! Savoury, herbaceous, blood orange, some grippy tannins, bright zippy acidity and a long persistent finish. An excellent food wine, bring on the grill!

Renardat-Fache NV Bugey Cerdon Méthode Ancestrale "Initiale"

The Bugey Cerdon "Initiale" is a new release from our friends Elie and Christelle at Renardat-Fache - made primarily with Gamay, Elie says it reminds him of what the estate was producing 20 years ago: fruity, "glou glou" Cerdon to knock back with abandon. Creamy, round and delicious with aromas of red and black fruits and spice, the wine is sappy and refreshingly sweet with ripe strawberry and raspberry compote in the finish. There is an appealing plumpness to this wine - it doesn't have the structure of the flagship wine but it makes up for it in juiciness. The effect is akin to eating a perfect ripe red plum, with crunchy tart skin and a touch of bitterness as one reaches the pit. Sam Ehrlich

Agnanum 2019 Campania Piedirosso Sabbia Vulcanica

The 2018 Sabbia Rosso taught me how to love Campania. This '19 is just as delicious. So expressive - the nose is a dense bouquet of dark flowers, plums, and salt. There are bold, warm scents of espresso and baked cherries. Definitely more sultry than the rustic 2018, with a little less earth and a bit more perfume, but with an attractiveness so honestly displayed that it is just as humble of a wine. The palate shows the classic plummy flavor Piedirosso almost always carries. I can taste graphite and herbs that remind me of Cabernet Franc, and a brininess that reminds me of Rhone Syrah. Structure is perfect, with dry tannin on the gums and tongue, refreshed by a bolt of minerally acidity. Pair with anything that is full of anchovies, thick tomato sauce, and black olives. Or drink it while waiting to Zoom with your brothers on a Saturday night. That's what I'm doing. Anyway, Agnanum, I love you. David Hatzopoulos

Casaretti 2020 Bardolino Classico Rosa dei Casaretti

The Rosa dei Casaretti is lighter in color than many Italian Rosatos, but the wine has some real depth. Aromatically charming, with strawberry dominating, and leafy herbal notes and a hint of grapefruit peel balancing the ripe fruit. The wine is light and very fresh; we drank it at home with a summer risotto of shell peas, sugar snap peas, and pecorino – it was a great match. Jamie Wolff

Montoni 2018 IGT Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa

What an awesome vintage for one of our staples here at Chambers Street. The wine is always delicious, but the 2018 might be the best I've had so far. The Lagnusa Nero d’Avola vines range in age from 20-50 years old, and they give the wine remarkable depth and complexity. My notes for the wine's bouquet reads: "smokey, dark roses, tar, and savory cherry." It is almost startling how complex the nose is upon first whiff. The palate has classic red berries, with a little spice and fresh herbs. The structure is bright, with only a hint of pleasant tannin and some lovely acidity. David Hatzopoulos

Bordiga Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry

Bordiga is a long-standing distillery established in 1888 outside of Turin, close to the Occitan Alps. They craft their own vermouths with Piedmontese grapes and infuse nearly thirty botanicals, some of which are foraged from the mountains nearby. Each botanical is macerated in neutral grain alcohol separately to ensure the best extraction and then blended into the base of Moscato and Cortese. The 'Extra-Dry' is fresh, herbaceous and  has a pleasantly bitter finish. If you like more than a 'whisper' of vermouth in your martini, this is a great option. Michelle DeWyngaert

The coffee beans are roasted, go through carbonic maceration to bring out those bright, fruity notes, and then cold brewed. This will make the most perfect espresso martini, but also, you're going to want to just drink it straight. Michelle DeWyngaert

Aphros 2019 Phaunus Palhete (Loureiro & Vinhao blend)

Palhete is the local name for a wine that is made in a farmer's style, by blending red and white grapes to create a low-alcohol wine to drink during the day. As founder Vasco Croft explains, there was no soda or beer back in medieval times, and water was not reliable, so the Palhete wines provided the only trustworthy hydration at the time. This particular blend is 80% Loureiro and 20% Vinhão. The 2019 is, in my opinion, the tastiest Palhete we've had since starting to carry the wine several vintages ago. The wine is very light in body, but with plenty of savory, crushed red berry character in the mid-palate. Drink with a light chill.  -EL

A field blend of indigenous varieties: mostly Rabigato, with Arinto and Gouveio. From the upper Douro Valley (Douro Superior), the warmest and the driest Douro sub-region. Altitudes are 500-600 meters with schist soils. Practicing organic and biodynamic, hand harvested, fermentation with indigenous yeast only. Aged in used French oak barrels for 9 months on the lees. With a bright gold appearance, the nose shows aromas of ripe melon and pear, white flowers and wet stones. In the mouth the wine displays great volume and fresh acidity along with flavors of citrus, pear, melon, honey and slightly bitter almond. For lovers of ripe Chenin or white Rhônes. The lees and oak aging give the wine a round body and structure that would make it an excellent partner to light meats as well as richer seafood dishes. Giselle Hamburg

Quinta da Costa do Pinhao 2016 Douro Vinho Branco

Quinta do Costa do Pinhão is an old winery in the Douro Valley now in its seventh generation, run by Miguel Morais, who took the estate into organic farming in the early 2000s. Miguel fell in love with his family's estate following a career as a Civil Engineer, and after returning to take over the winery, restarted use of the old cement lagars, brought in large old barrels, and took advantage of the gravity system that was already in place in the 19th century building. These wines benefit not just from the non-interventionist wine-making and organic farming, but also the guiding hand of Luis Seabra, famed Portuguese winemaker, and a friend of the Morais family. He has been helping with the winemaking here, and we're excited to be able to offer wines from this new project. The Branco has a bit of skin contact, with juice and skins together during fermentation in the open top lagars. There is a subtle amber hue, and its by no means tannic, but the inclusion of skins provides beautiful structure to the wine, playing nicely with the minerality from the famous schist terroir of the Douro Valley. A field blend, consisting of mostly Rabigato, Gouveio, and Viosinho. Aged in old barrels for one year, then an additional 9 months in stainless steel before bottling. A real treat!   -EL

Pepper, black currant, oregano, and fresh earth abound. For a wine under $20, this traditional Baga over-delivers, providing the leather and cedar notes of a fine Bordeaux mixed with the finesse of Nebbiolo. Perhaps an old fashioned wine in style, this is no fault! A great value.  -EL

Balazu des Vaussières 2020 Vin de France Lune Bleue

Once again, in 2020, the Charmassons at Balazu des Vaussières did a harvest of all their red and white grapes together (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne, Clairette, Cinsault) and are calling it a "blanc de rose," but we might call it a wine of maceration, given its light unusual color. The official name this year is "Lune Bleue." In the glass, the wine is the color of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. On the nose, the same type of bitter zippy citrus leads a mix a slim red fruits and wild flowers. Flavors of lemon,  small red cherries and  herbs surround a core of fresh white minerals. Bright in acid and light in tannin. At the end of this wine's tart finish, there is a hint of fuzziness, which might disappear in the coming months. A bottle for those chasing  the most "natural" of taste profiles, from an estate devoted to the health and purity of its soils and its wines.

It has much restraint, more blood with firm cherry notes towards the finish. Decant it,...drink until 2044."

Monardiere 2020 Vacqueyras Le Rosé

This rosé from Vacqueyras is a prime candidate for any summer grill and barbecue. Primarily Grenache (with 30% Cinsault), farmed without chemical products in the vineyard, hand harvested, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Winemakers Martine and Christian Vache vinify half of the wine for their rosé in the saignée (bleeding) method, taking juice from red grapes after about 10 hours of maceration and fermenting this separately. The other half is a direct press of partially de-stemmed grapes. Once fermented, the two wines are blended and aged on the lees for 6 months before bottling. The result is a wine of a beautiful pale hue that provides kick and crispness, brambly fresh berry fruit, with peach and rose and a touch of spice. Super dry, and satisfyingly refreshing, it's perfect with salads and snacks, and has enough body to stand up to richer, tangier flavors and grilled meats.  Eben Lillie

Pierre Andre 2018 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Magnum

We consider Domaine Pierre André to be one of the greatest estates in Châteuneuf-du-Pape. Organic since 1980 (one of the first in the AOC) and Biodynamic since 1992. The red is 90% Grenache with Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Muscadin and Picpoul. Some parcels are over 140 years old, with the average vine age around 70  years. The 2018 shows a deep black/garnet color and aromas of ripe morello cherry, blackberry and blueberry liqueur with hints of violet, orange zest, garrigue and stone. The palate is dense but bright and balanced, supple and sapid with cherry, red currant, black plum and licorice with velvety tannins and a beautiful palate-coating finish of bright red fruits, earth and chalky acids. This is a gorgeous wine, perhaps without the power and and structure of 2016 but with deep, vibrant fruit that will give great pleasure over the next 20 years.  David Lillie

The palate is round and dense with white fruits, almond, peach, spice and stone flavors. Serve with fish in sauce, white meats, mild cheeses. Lovely now but the wine should gain in complexity over the next five to ten years.  This is a lovely and quite "natural" northern Rhone white. David Lillie

This classic Cornas is from vines averaging 60 years old on granite "gores" in the vineyards of "Combe," "Patou," "La Cote," "les Mazards" and "Chaillots" and in 2017 this bottling includes the fruit from Les Vieilles Fontaines.  The grapes are partially de-stemmed, fermentation is with wild yeasts, aging is 20 months in barrique 15% new. The robe is a dark ruby, verging on purple. The nose is effusive with aromas of blackberry, violets, tree bark, black tea and plum skin. The concentrated palate boasts an array of ripe black fruit flavors and notes a grilled meat and earth  girded by firm tannins and focusing acidity. The finish is long and involved with lingering layers of earth, bramble, and black berry liqueur. There's fine nascent complexity here and this should gain in sophistication as the abundant fruit integrates with the underlying structure. John McIlwain

Opening with notes of creamy vanilla  and citrus on the nose, from the first sip this is rich and complex, incorporating the best of what both producers have to offer, with just enough funk from the Hampden distillate to make this very engaging. Tropical fruit, banana custard, notes of molasses and sugarcane are all present on the thick and oily palate. Sipping it neat isn't a problem, but cocktails is where this rum really shines. Will make the perfect Daiquiri! Oskar Kostecki

Holmes Cay 2005 Guyana Port Mourant Single Cask Rum 56.4%

The Port Mourant still is totally unique; the last double wooden pot still in operation in the entire world. Originally built in 1732 on the Port Mourant Estate, it then moved to Uitvlugt Estate, and after that was shut down, ended up at Demerara Distillers Limited, the last rum distillery in Guyana. Since then the rums coming off the Port Mourant still have been used in blends for El Dorado, the flagship brand of DDL. To find a single cask of exclusively Port Mourant still rum is a treat indeed. This cask has spent most of its time aging in a continental climate in Northern Europe, and is bottled at cask strength without any additives. Off the bat this feels slightly funkier than one would expect from a rum from Guyana. There is tropical fruit here: a hint of guava, a hint of banana, under-ripe pineapple, coconut, along with apricot, green apple peel, mirabelle plum. There is an herbaceous and savory edge to this rum, with some vegetal notes of dried grass and undergrowth, along with a hint of engine oil and a touch of iodine. Incredibly complex, and maybe even a little bit mysterious, this is a rum I kept coming back to, trying to figure out it's shifting and mesmerizing profile. Oskar Kostecki

Privateer 'PM Spirits Selection' Single Cask American Rum The Queen's Share 56.5%

Maggie Campbell is serious force to be reckoned with. A savant of spirits, if you will. Her dedication to precision and passion for great rum has led to these exquisite bottles. The 'Queen's Share' is based with 100% Grade A Guatemalan molasses and is taken from a blend of the 'seconds'(the end of the 'heart' and just before the 'tails') cut from each of the Privateer spirits. It is pot distilled first and then goes into a column still before being aged for a minimum of two years in either a new American oak or used bourbon, run, or brandy barrels. As each expression of the Queen's Share is a single batch, single barrel expression, it is matched with which ever barrel they believe will properly showcase the unique spirit. This edition was chosen by the spirits experts, and Privateer enthusiasts, of importer PM Spirits as their favorite cask of the lot. It is bottled at 56.5%ABV.

Equipo Navazos NV Jerez La Bota de Palo Cortado #48 Bota Punta 375ml

From Equipo Navazos: 'Gaspar Florido used to market two very old wines sourced from their soleras at their old cellaring facility at calle Rubiños, in the heart of the “Barrio” in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. When they decided to seize the real estate fever and sell their urban bodegas they had to move those butts to a shabby facility on the road from Sanlúcar to Trebujena. There is where we had the opportunity to sample them for the first time, on a visit with Álvaro Girón to already old Gaspar in June 2006. We were very positively impressed by their quality and consistency, especially in contrast with the lack of distinction–to put it mildly–of the context there and then. There were quite a few butts of the outstanding GF-25 and only a few of GF-30, a very old and absolutely spectacular wine. It is precisely from the latter that this La Bota de Palo Cortado nº 48 “Bota Punta” is sourced. In fact it comes from a sister cask of the one from which we extracted our La Bota de Palo Cortado nº 41 “Bota NO” ten months before. Only a few months later, early in 2007, Bodegas Pedro Romero purchased Gaspar Florido, and since then they have remained marketing GF-25 under the usual label “Jerez Viejísimo”. In Gaspar’s opinion–perhaps questionable but not lacking solid ground–such wines see how the distinctive features of amontillado, palo cortado and oloroso are blurred by their very age. That is why he used to label it simply “Jerez”, which after all merely honors the sanluqueña tradition of referring to the local palo cortado as “jerez cortado”. It is indeed a very old palo cortado, and so we have labeled it as such.'

Albamar 2019 Ribeira Sacra Fusco Mencia

We know Bodegas Albamar for the incredible Albarinos that winemaker Xurxo Alba produces, but his reds are worthy of attention too! This is all Mencia from the Ribeira Sacra DO, aged in stainless steel. The profile is classic for Mencia, with subtle spice, earth, crushed red and black berries, medium tannin and perfect acidity. There is a slightly rustic character to the fruit, but the wine is so elegant that the rusticity is more of an edge than a dominating feature. Highly recommended for all fans of Mencia, and for anyone looking for a perfectly medium-bodied red.  -EL

Bengoetxe 2019 Getariako Txakolina

Iñaki and Rosa Maria Etxeberria produce Bengoetxe in the cool, very green Basque country on the border with France. The humid climate and the influence of the Atlantic Ocean yield wines with lots of bright acidity grown from native grapes (in this case, Hondarribi Zuri and a tiny bit of Gros Manseng). The Exeberrias pursue a lower-intervention and more serious style of Txakoli, harvesting by hand, fermenting with native yeasts, and resting for a full year on the lees in steel tanks before bottling without captured CO2. Bengoetxe is from vineyards from a slightly warmer site, and the wine shows rich citrus,  melon, smoke and herbs on the palate. The 2019 is outrageously good, a total knockout for the price: long and extremely mineral on the palate, with brilliant acidity and freshness. I don't know if I'll manage to save a bottle or two (as it is so very tasty right now), but my feeling is that is could also age quite brilliantly. Ben Fletcher

Bodegas Akutain 2014 Rioja Reserva

I've come to conclude that there's room for all types in the world of Rioja wine, from bright and fresh wines made with stainless steel and carbonic maceration to full-bodied, single vineyard expressions of Tempranillo and Garnacha made in French Oak, with everything imaginable in-between. That is not to say that I don't have my preferences: I have to admit to loving classic, old-fashioned Rioja wines, blended from multipleparcels and made in (mostly) old American oak. These are wines built to last a long time, and the great producers of these wines are typically storied houses dating to the beginning of  the modern period of winemaking in Rioja, with familiar names like Lopez de Heredia, Riojanas, La Rioja Alta or Marques de Murrieta. I'm pleased to be able to say that Jon Peñagarikano Akutain, the second-generation owner of Bodegas Akutain, is making wines that are very much in the same vein and of the same quality as these great estates. 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 2014 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. The palate is deep and full-bodied, youthful but balanced, with structuring tannins and nice acidity. This offers tons of pleasure right now, but the 2014 Reserva could certainly be held for the next 10 to 15 years. Ben Fletcher

Borja Perez Viticultores 2018 Tenerife Artifice Tinto

Artifice Tinto is all Listan Negro, from a variety of plots in the northern region of Tenerife. The 2018 is by far the best expression of this wine that I've tasted, all citrus rind, cranberry, strawberry, exotic spices and smokiness on the nose, with an admirably delicate light- to medium-bodied palate with gentle tannins. There's clearly some whole clusters used here, but the wine shows softer and more elegant than in previous vintages. Borja Perez's wines just keep getting better! Ben Fletcher

Casa Aurora (Germán Blanco) 2018 Albares Vino de Parcela La Vendañona

La Vendañona comes from a single, formerly abandoned high altitude plot of 100 to 110 year-old Mencía on iron-rich clay soils. I wasn't able to get information about the fermentation or aging method of this wine, beyond that it is fermented only with native yeasts, and rests for a year in large oak barrels. Quite clearly, however, there is a touch of delicate oak spice here, which complements the dark, savory, character of this expression of Mencía very well. The texture is silky and dense, but medium-bodied, with integrated, dusty tannins that frame the notes of game, blackberry, and plum nicely. I think that this would be a good candidate for medium-term aging, but it's so appealing and gastronomic now it may be very hard to wait! Ben Fletcher

Parallada, paradiddle.. What a lovely wine! Parallada is a rare grape variety, local to Catalunya, and lends itself well to skin contact.

Daterra Viticultores (Laura Lorenzo) 2019 Vino Tinto (Ribeira Sacra) Portela do Vento Tinto

The wild child is back! All Mencia, from a South facing parcel of 50 year old vines on granitic sandy soil, at 400m elevation, in the valley of the Sil river. Fruit is de-stemmed, and fermentation is in 4000L foudres, with aging in the same foudres for 11 months. Total SO2 15mg/l. Upon opening, there are aromas of olives and black cherries, soil and savory. A bit volatile, but truly in the best way. When winemakers describe how volatile acidity can lift the aromas and increase the enjoyment of a wine, this is exactly what they're talking about. The wine stands out with a type of animal aroma that is hard to describe, but is clearly a transmission of the grape and the rugged countryside of Ribeira Sacra. On the finish, bright red fruits, mineral structure, and fine tannin.

Finca Torremilanos 2019 Ribera del Duero Montecastrillo Tinto

This 100% Tempranillo wine from Ribera del Duero is a fantastic value from  biodynamically certified vineyards.  Coming from vines aged between 10- and 20-year-old, the wine is aged 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak. This is a classic, fuller-bodied expression of warm climate Tempranillo: dark fruit, earth, a bit of leather and medium tannins are in balanced with freshness and some herbal character. A great wine for hearty weeknight fare, it can also stand up to steak or lamb. -BF

Nanclares 2020 Rias Baixas Dandelion Albariño

Alberto Nanclares and Sylvia Prieto are making expressive, exciting wines from Albarino and other local grapes in Rias Baixas. This wine is from multiple sites in Cambados on granitic and sandy soils. The vines range in age from 30 to 60 years, a the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in small tanks for close to a year. The 2020 is delicious, showing soft, delicate acidity, stones, and dry melon notes. The mid-palate has perfect density, and the wine truly transcends the one-dimensional generalization of Albarinos as crispy and refreshing, as this is almost more akin to a classic Chablis on the palate, especially if served at cellar temperature.  -EL

Vinyes Singulars 2020 Penedes Pim Pam White Blend

Xarel-lo, Macabeu, Parellada, Malvasia de Sitges and Sumoll Blanc. As stated on the side of the bottle, "Not added sulphites. Indigenous yeasts. No barrel. Non clarificated. Non Filtered. Just fermented grape juice!" Vinyes Singulars is a small, organic certified estate in the north east part of Penedes, in Catalunya, Spain. Pim Pam is really enticing on the nose, possibly thanks to the aromatics of the local Malvasia. The palate is fascinating, with great texture and flesh, and it seems to just get better with each glass! Full enough to stand alone as a white with noticeable character, and ready for a wide variety of pairings.   Eben Lillie

Fidencio Mezcal Joven Clasico 46.6% (Arrives 8/2)

One of the only mezcales that is farmed biodynamically, Fidencio Clasico comes from the heartland of agave distillation in Oaxaca, Santiago Matatlan. Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Jimenez allows his espadin agave to mature for at least 10 years (most is cut down at 7) before harvesting and fermenting using only natural ambient yeast. An assertive smokiness on the attack gives way to fruit, specifically melon, grapefruit, and under-ripe banana. The finish resolves with a minerality reminiscent of hot stones and salinity. A perfect cocktail option. Oskar Kostecki

Mal Bien (Félix Ramírez) Yogana, Ejutla, Oax. Mezcal Artesanal Espadín

Espadín from Ejutla! Félix Ramírez (Mendez) is a second-generation mezcalero based in the town of Yogana, about an hour and a half drive south of Oaxaca de Juárez. We're very excited to offer his first bottling to make it to NYC. The Espadín piñas are roasted in earthen pit for three days before a five day rest. Milling is by tahona and the fibers ferment with well water in Cypress tina followed by a single distillation through a copper alembic still with refrescadera typical to the Ejutla region, having a cool water-submerged montera above the pot with two rectifying plates inside. The cold water and the plates work to further distill the vapors, so a single pass is usually all that's needed to get close to the desired spirit, then proofed to 46.69% ABV with puntas and colas (Aug 2018).

Mezcal Tosba Espadin Oaxaca

The plots for Tosba's Espadin are scattered throughout the valley, ranging in altitude from 1100m close to the village of Lachiroig to about 600m around the palenque. The growing conditions and maturation times vary greatly. Lower down the mountain, due to the more tropical conditions,the Espadin can mature in as little as 6-7 years, while  the plots at higher elevations take up to 11 years. At the moment Edgar is co-fermenting and co-distilling plants taken from all the different parcels, but on my visit we talked about the future possibility of separating the Espadin according to terroir. Though currently we are in love with this new release. Higher proof than the earlier batches, it still retains its hallmark vivacity and acidity. The nose is all crushed rock and tropical fruit (banana!), with a faint whiff of aged Parmesan.  The palate shows notes of guava and watermelon bubblegum, with a floral element reminiscent of hibiscus. There is a hint of thyme and cardamom, along with a smoky, charcoal note. Viva Mezcal Tosba, this is sensational Espadin! Oskar Kostecki

Neta Tomas Garcia Cruz Tobala Capon

This mezcal is bade from 100% caponed Tobala grown by Don  Tomás  García  Cruz  and  his  son, on steep, white rocky soils. It is rare to find cultivated Tobala, but this experiement by the Cruz family of planting from seed led to maturation of the plants in half the time it typically takes in the wild. The agave is cooked for four days in ovens with mesquite and oak then fermented in open wood vats before double-distilling in copper pot stills. Only 180L were made of this very special bottling. The nose is bright and high-toned with notes of lime zest, white button mushroom, and cardamom. On the palate this spirit is delicate and fresh with notes of artichoke, sweet smoke from the mesquite, and fresh cardamom pods. Michelle DeWyngaert

AmByth 2013 Paso Robles Grenache

AmByth's wines are about translating their holistic ecosystem of an estate, into their bottles of wine. The philosophy at AmByth is that if the whole of the vineyard is taken care of, without the use of anything synthetic, and nothing is added to or taken away from the juice of the grapes, the wines will honestly showcase their terroir. The vineyards are certified biodynamic, dry-farmed, and the vines are head-trained, producing small yields with concentrated fruit. This Grenache has a beautiful earthiness on the nose, with ripe cherry and plum, and just the beginning of secondary development. The tannins are soft and powdery giving it a nice balance with the plump, red fruits. This would be an excellent pairing for roasted pork, or some kind of fruit compote. Michelle DeWyngaert

Bedrock 2018 Sonoma Bedrock Vineyard Heritage Red

The Heritage Red from  Bedrock Vineyard is from a Zinfandel-based blend composed of 22 inter-planted varieties planted in the 1880s in Red Hill  clay-loam soils, using no-till cover crop farming, and native yeast fermentation. Zinfandel really shines from these old, gnarled vines. The concentration of flavor that you get from the very low yields adds richness to the wines without having to pick them late and overripe. The nose shows a mix of violet, minty eucalyptus, and ripe, but not syrupy, purple plum. The palate shows additional complexity with a touch of cocoa powder, black tea, and black cherry. Rich and comforting, this will be excellent in the colder months! Michelle DeWyngaert

Eminence Road 2019 Finger Lakes Elizabeth's Vineyard Pinot Noir

Of all the current crop of ER wines that I've had the chance  to taste so far, this is the star. Showing some reduction on the nose at first, but clean red fruit on the palate and good acidity. However, with air this really came to life, with snappy red currant and cranberry fruit and a leafy savory edge that were a great compliment to green lentils with squash and tomatoes. There was also a vivid black pepper component that reminded me of first rate Pineau d'Aunis from the Loire. I really liked this. Amazing value. Sam Ehrlich

The fruit is 100% destemmed, with 20% of stems added into the fermentation. Gently foot-tread and then aged in neutral puncheons for 16 months, then bottled with a very small addition of SO2.

This vintage of "Pretty Horses" is actually a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 10 % Grenache, 10% Pinot Noir and a small amount of Graciano creating a unique and perfectly food-friendly California red. Enfield Wine Co. sourced most of the fruit for this vintage from the famous Rorick Heritage Vineyard, with the rest from Shake Ridge in Amador County, and a bit of the Pinot Noir from the Heron Lake in the Wild Horse AVA. Inspired by the wines of Rioja Alavesa, this wine is designed to be drank young, though shows great structure for short-term aging. The nose shows a melange of red and blue fruits, stewed cherry, blueberry, cedar, and fresh tobacco leaves. The palate is fresh and on the fuller side of medium-bodied with easy-going tannins and opened up nicely after a few hours (even a few days) with air. Michelle DeWyngaert

Matthiasson 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Steve Matthiasson is a dedicated organic farmer and low-intervention winemaker. This is old-school California Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest, made even more elegantly this vintage because of the relatively low temperatures throughout the season. (Thankfully harvest was completed before the wildfires took over!) The blend for 2017 is from six different Napa vineyards from Coombsville, Rutherford, and Oak Knoll ; 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc. The wine is gently extracted with minimal pump-overs and fermented at a low temperatures. It is aged for 20 months in mostly used and less than 20% new French oak which adds just a touch of baking spice to the aroma and a silky texture to the tannins.  At only 13% ABV this is by no means a burly or jammy California Cab, this is much more reminiscent of  Napa wines from the 1970's.

Richard Luftig, one of New York's best sommeliers, has made a Cabernet known for phenomenal quality and price: Pied a Terre Cabernet! Always one of our best-selling American reds, 2015 is a deep, ripe, and focused vintage for Pied a Terre. This is a fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon that has classic California character but more structure and reserve than a lot of riper wine. The tannic structure is tightly woven, with fine acid backbone and lush cassis, blackberry, and slightly redder berry fruit. This is a California Cabernet meant to be consumed with food, and will pear excellently with New York strip steak, pork loin, or coq au vin. Andrew Farquhar

The first Cabernet from the brothers Railsback, Eric and Lyle, this is my kind of Cali Cab. From Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara, this is as much about red fruit as black, with notes of dried sage, roasted red pepper and a certain salty freshness that is common in Santa Barbara. There is ample acidity and enough tannic structure to suggest solid aging potential for the near-term, but I'd be hard pressed not to just keep drinking it. Sam Ehrlich

Banyan 2019 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

The endless drinkability of the Eminence Road wines is what I find most appealing, year after year. This is fully ripe and clocks in at just over 11% alcohol.
