Companyia Viticola Sileo 2019 Montsant

This is the newest project from Agusti Torello Roca, and 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. Provided that the reader understands that our preferred style of Montsant (and Priorat for that matter) favors balance and acidity over extraction, new oak, and high alcohol, this is a perfect Montsant!  -EL

Mann, Albert 2018 Alsace Auxerrois Vieilles Vignes

A blend of 75% Pinot Auxerrois and 25% Pinot Blanc from 45-year-old organically farmed vines in calcerous marls with gravel. High-toned on the nose with pretty aromas of apple blossom, peach skin and golden apple. The palate is mid-weight, but brisk with ripe flavors of stone fruit and golden apple with a fine core of flinty minerality and spice on the long and detailed finish. This is lovely stuff and will pair beautifully with lighter dishes and on warm summer evenings. John McIlwain

Good Intentions Wine Co. 2018 South Australia Mount Gambier, 'Gris Diddly Po

Good Intentions Wine Co. makes a  line of fun, expressive wines from their home vineyard, and three nearby leased plots to showcase the unique soil of Mount Gambier, an active volcano that lends them a layer of volcanic ash in their topsoil. The plots are all farmed organically and without plowing/tilling, instead letting their sheep do the mowing. This delightful pet-nat is a blend of 50%  carbonic macerated Pinot Gris, and 50% rosé of Pinot Noir. Since the vintage saw very low yields of the Pinot Gris they thought it would be a great match with their Pinot Noir. This pet-nat is for the cider and sour beer lovers; bright, earthy, and perfectly tart, frothy, but not explosively effervescent. Michelle DeWyngaert

Familie Bauer 2019 Alte Reben "Urig" Roter Veltliner (skin contact)

A lovely soft and stone-fruited Roter Veltliner with skin contact. Nice viscosity and a clean finish. A great introduction to skin contact wines, and to the lesser known Roter Veltliner grape from Austria.  The 2019 is probably our favorite vintage yet of this wine. Hazy in the glass, with almost a peach-hue, its suitable on its own or with light fare, salads, lunch, grilled veggies and the like. -EL

Black plums, soy sauce, black pepper, deep savory spice wafts up from the glass, belying the fresh and juicy palate of tart raspberries, plums, violets with well-integrated structure. Cari BernardFun fact: The name Pittnauski is an homage to Gerhard's favorite movie, the Big Lebowski.

Weingut Harm 2015 Wachau Riesling Durnsteiner Kellerburg

Maria and Andreas Harm make wines in the Wachau and Kremstal in Austria. Their estate was only started in 2010, so they are definitely a new name in this iconic area, but are already producing beautiful, balanced wines from some famed sites. Vineyards were always farmed organically, with Biodynamic certification coming in 2019, and the wines are fermented with native yeast. Kellerberg is a 15 hectare site of sandy loess over gneiss and quartz, and arguably the most prized site around the town of Dürnstein. The 2015 has the boldness associated with the Kellerberg site, balanced by moderate alcohol (13.5%), low RS and good acidity. It's definitely Riesling, but doesn't scream petrol, has some ripeness, but the mineral finish keeps the wine fresh with lifted notes of crisp orchard fruit as well. It seems from recent tasting that the wine should still have a nice life ahead of it, though it is certainly enjoyable now. -EL

Beaujolais

Descombes, Georges 2018 Brouilly

Georges Descombes is one of the great producers of natural Beaujolais -  the Descombes Brouilly comes from 3.5 hectares on steep slopes, farmed organically. Carbonic maceration with whole clusters then a slow vertical press to finish the fermentation. No additives, a small addition of SO2 before bottling. The 2018 shows beautifully ripe but high-toned red fruits, with lovely aromas of strawberry, blackberry and violet with herbal and citrus notes. The palate is fresh and mineral, a bit lighter and brighter than the Morgon, infused with berry fruits and citrusy acids, and the finish is long and elegant. This is a lovely food-friendly Brouilly to serve, quite cool, with chicken, pork, charcuterie and mild cheeses. David Lillie

Descombes, Georges 2018 Morgon Vieilles Vignes

Pretty young to be checking in on the old vines cuvée, but these are unusual times to say the least. Dark ruby, verging in purple robe. Dusty crushed blackberries, violets, and a brambly note on the nose. Nothing roasted or overripe here, despite the black fruit. The palate is mid-weight and has fine sap and vigor, with succulent ripeness and plenty of dry extract to buffer the firm—not stern—tannins. There’s good tension between the bright, ripe, concentrated fruit and the substantial mineral core. The finish is long and layered with good lift and fine persistence. There’s good structure here and while this has plenty of charm now, this ought to dazzle with 5-7 years in the cellar and beyond. And while the prices have crept up, this is a steal given its breed and rivals plenty of very good villages wines from my beloved Côte d’Or in character and complexity. John McIlwain

Descombes, Georges 2019 Regnie

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!

Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) 2019 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 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!

Terres Dorees (Jean-Paul Brun) 2020 Beaujolais Rosé d'Folie

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!

La Grave Figeac 2015 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The Clauzel family does not disappoint with this vintage! This wine is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, planted on sandy gravelly soils and aged for about 15 months in barrels. Elegant and classic, the nose displays aromas of dark plum, crunchy cassis, prunes, nutmeg, light tobacco, dried violet petals and leather notes. On the palate, the wine is luscious and vibrant with good acidity, beautiful minerality and supple tannins. The finish is long with a delicate bouquet. A delicious Saint-Emilion to drink now or cellar for +10 years. Pair this wine with roast beef, grilled steak, nutty cheese or roasted lamb. Caroline Coursant

Christophe Pueyo 2020 Petillant Naturel 'Galipette' (St. Emilion)

Though Christophe Pueyo is the 5th generation of winemakers to work with this estate,  he has brought them in a new direction with conversion to organic farming (and more recently biodynamic practices), and is making decidedly un-classic expressions of St. Emilion. The 'Galipette' is a far cry from the Bordeaux Blanc we're accustomed to, but is instead a delightful, no additive pet-nat of Semillon and Muscadelle. These two varieties, typically the minority in dry, white blends, are the star of this frothy sparkler. Notes of chamomile and white flowers, soft herbs, and fresh bread on the nose, and  a creaminess and richness that you might not expect from a no sulfur pet-nat on the palate. Michelle DeWyngaert

Chateau de Leberon Solera Ténarèze Armagnac 750ml

The Chateau de Leberon has been in the family for four generations, focused on crafting a spirit that wholly reflects their micro-terroir by using all estate-grown fruit, and even estate-grown wood for their barrels. As all of their other bottlings are vintage-dated, in 2001 a solera, or "cellar master's cask" was started, with minimum 3-year-old spirit being added each year, as a portion is bottled. The nose is elegant and high-toned, a bit floral even, with cherry blossom mingling with caramel and spice. The palate has a lightness to it, though far from "thin," with a touch of cinnamon heat on the finish. Opens up nicely with a small splash of water!  Michelle DeWyngaert

Chazelles (Domaine des) 2017 Vire-Clesse Vieilles Vignes

Viré Classé is a privileged location in the Macon that enjoys a fantastic exposure to the sun on a slight slope. This yields wines that have an added weight and complexity compared to your run-of-the-mill Macon-Villages. At Domaine des Chazelles, organic vines with over 50 years of age broadcast dense flavors of golden apple and stone fruit with an invigorating touch of acid. This is a great Chardonnay with concentration and freshness that could age beautifully for years.

Dangin, Bruno NV Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Noirs

What a difference 2 kilometers makes! Bruno Dangin's Crémant de Bourgogne is made from 100% Pinot Noir from organically farmed vines in Molesme, located just beneath the southern border of Champagne's Aube.The limestone rich soils are the same as those of their pricier neighbor to the north.  Boasting a fine bead and soft mousse and aromas of red fruits and autolyse, one would be hard pressed to spot the difference. The palate offers great depth, pure pinot fruit, and a suave, layered, persistent finish. This is a great value in bubbles and will grace the holiday table nicely. John McIlwain

Domane de l'Enclos 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Here's a rarity, a new organic grower in Chablis. Brothers Romain and Damien Bouchard whose father Pascal is a famed negotiant. In 2015 their father sold the winery and passed on his vines to the sons who've built a new winery and begun the process of organic certification. The wines are fermented with natural yeasts and aged in stainless steel and bottled with minimal sulfur. The 2016 Beauroy 1er cru from the left bank of the Serein river is bright, high-toned and redolent of white flowers and sea spray on the nose. The palate is fresh, vibrant and nervy with punchy flavors of lemon zest, apple peel, and chalk on a galloping finish. This has great tension between the pungent mineral notes and ripe orchard fruit with a compelling, cool savory herbal notes. The Bouchard brothers are vignerons to watch. John McIlwain

The Paquet family is based in the Maconnais. They have nearly thirty hectares across a dozen appellations, all farmed organically and on the way to certification. This is their entry-level Chardonnay and it is delightful, full of lime and green herbs, with clear mineral tones and good freshness. There is no oak influence at all and no funny business. This is just tasty Chardonnay grown in limestone soils, perfect as we emerge from the ice and snow into  Spring.  Sam Ehrlich

Frantz Chagnoleau 2019 Saint Veran Prelude

Frantz Chagnoleau is one half of a Maconnais power couple - he makes some of the most compelling St. Verans being produced today, while his wife Caroline is the winemaker for Dominique Lafon's Macon property. This is absolutely terrific, especially considering the price. It's full of crisp stone fruit and citrus pith, without any apparent oak influence, and with terrific ripeness and mouthwatering texture. The minerality is exposed and quite intense - there would be no mistaking this for anything but Burgundy. Tremendous. Sam Ehrlich

Génot-Boulanger 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Nosroyes

Was $99.99


This is very high-quality village Puligny! "Nosroyes" sits just below Premier Cru "Perrieres," and there is lots of limestone in the soil. The nose shows some of the same green apple notes as the Meursault but with an added element of white floral character, somewhere between lily and honeysuckle. In the mouth there is more apple, as well as Meyer lemon and a bare touch of wood spice and cool minerality. Again the overall impression here is one of understatement and finesse rather than power. Very good wine.  Sam Ehrlich

 Jean-Marie Chaland owns two estates in Viré (Macon), Domaine Sainte Barbe and Domaine des Chazelles, both certified organic since 2006. The Sainte Barbe "la Perriere" is made from 35 year-old grapes from a half-hectare parcel near Viré on clay/limestone soils, never treated with herbicides. The grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with wild yeasts, the wine ages for 18 months, half in barrel, have in cuve inox. The 2017 shows pretty aromas of pear, apricot, lime flower and stone. There is nice richness on the palate, which is supple and elegant with chalky white fruits, a bit of nectarine, verbena and a hint of oak, with firm acidity, silky fruit and mineral notes in the long finish. This is a stylish white Burgundy that will accompany  any full-flavored fish dish, chicken in sauce and mild cheeses, and it will age nicely for 5 to 8 years.

There's a malty, yellow-fruited richness to the nose along with wisps of peach skin and lime zest giving way to a subtle and enticing mineral character. The palate is dry with stone fruit and salted pineapple notes, with a fine mineral core and long, zesty, lifted finish. This is delicious, though it should gain with a year or two in the cellar.

Knauss 2018 Württemberg Red Pure

The wine has a densely purple core, with lighter violet on the edges. The nose has rich aromas of candied raspberry and blackberry, dense green herbs, and pungent dark flowers. The palate is plummy, with a dash of tart cherry, green stems and a vibrant mineral undertone. Wonderfully fresh acidity, along with some chewy tannin, balance out the mouthfeel. A great, bold red with a crunchy core and wild fruit - drink today!

Knauss 2020 Württemberg Boutanche Trollinger 1L

For a light, happy red that can be easily drunk in far more quantity than is appropriate, the Trollinger from Andi Knauss in Württemberg has quickly become a favorite. Plus, it comes in a handy 1-liter size so the party just keeps on going and going. Seriously, though, this wine is made of what the Italians would call Schiava, but to us it's more like a fresh Poulsard or Beaujolais-Villages. Notes of cranberry, fresh cherry, and a touch of soft herbs and bit of allspice. Juicy, refreshing, and the tinniest bit of tannin on the palate. Serve chilled with your next picnic or outdoor gathering! Michelle DeWyngaert

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

Gioventu 2019 Chianti

Gioventu Chianti comes from Michael Schmeltzer, the man behind our beloved Monte Bernardi wines. As expected, this wine is fantastic - worth so much more than the $16 price per bottle. From younger vines (planted in 2010) of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Ciliegiolo. After the grapes are crushed, the wine ferments naturally in cement tanks. Aging in also in cement and lasts 12 months. There is no fining or filtering before bottling. The color of the wine shows a burgundy center, becoming a clearer, burnt red on the edges. The nose is bold, with complex layers of fruit and earth. Aromas of black cherry, dark red flowers, and crushed, loamy rocks are the at the core, with spicy, woodsy smells of milled black pepper and autumnal dried leaves right above it. The palate is focused on savory fruits of blackberry, cherry, and red citrus, freshened by a zing of clean minerality. Structure-wise,  this wine has power, with long lasting acidity, and tannin on the top of the gums and down the tongue. An incredibly delicious wine! Paired wonderfully with taco truck carnitas and al pastor tacos on day two... David Hatzopoulos

Bulli nv Colli Piacentini Ortrugo Frizzante

This frizzante is 100% Ortrugo. A grape once used mostly as a blending companion to the more fancied Malvasia, it is known for articulated acidity, thus making it a perfect foundation for sparkling and semi-sparkling wines. In recent years, it has come out of the shadows and is frequently used for single-varietal wines, mostly coming from the region of Colli Piacentini in Emilia-Romagna, known for its limestone soil. The Bulli Ortrugo begins with vines of 10-50 years of age. Guyot trained. The grapes are picked in September and October. Native yeasts are used to ferment the wine dry, and after waiting over the winter months, grape must from the autumn harvest is added to induce secondary fermentation. This, of course, gives the wine a sparkle. Like all wines from Bulli, it sees no added SO2. When first poured, before getting air, the nose is crushed and chalky limestone. Released soon after are aromas of savory/sweet Jordan almonds, nectarines and blossoms, along with a trace of that original, almost smokey, minerality. The palate is salty, with flavors of firm pear, sage, and a very long, dry finish of fresh lemon zest. The color is that of homemade lemon-water. Contrary to what is said about Ortrugo, I didn't find this wine incredibly high in acid. Well balanced flavors and structure here. Paired very well with Friday night sushi. David Hatzopoulos

De Bartoli 1990 Marsala Superiore Vigna la Micia

In the 1700 and 1800’s, Marsala’s reputation was as wine of great quality, but in the last century only one grower, Marco de Bartoli, has managed to produce truly fine Marsala. This is wine made in a similar manner as Port, Madeira, and Sherry: fortified with brandy, and aged exposed to heat and oxygen. The resulting wines are very long-lived, and are basically indestructible; you can open this bottle and enjoy it over an extended period. At De Bartoli, La Micia is usually a multi-vintage blend, but in 1990 – as in a couple of other exceptional years – they made a single-vintage wine. This is a Marsala Oro – golden colored, and lighter and more delicate than most other Marsala we’ve tasted. There is a modest amount of residual sugar in the wine, so it’s a bit sweet, but good naturally acidity provides balance and keeps the wine refreshing. Aromas of apricot, nuts, anise, and stony earth follow-through in the flavor of the wine, and the finish is long without being overpowering. We’ve had some at home a couple of times this week; first as an apertif with Marcona almonds – a fantastic salty/sweet play on the palate. Last night we had some with dessert – pecan cookies – another great combo, as the nuttiness of both the wine and the cookies worked beautifully together. We suggest trying this with any not-too-sweet dessert – biscotti, pound cake, nut cakes, or nuts and dried fruit, or – we bet it will be great – cheese. JW

Loire

Bertin-Delatte 2018 Anjou Blanc L'Echalier

 In the past decade or so, the town of Rablay-sur-Layon has become a small hub for dedicated young winemakers in the Loire Valley. There’s a strong community spirit – each year the town organizes a small music festival, and there is a cooperative grocery store in the town center. Geneviève Delatte and Nicolas Bertin started out in the area working for other winemakers, and in 2008, they purchased their own small vineyard, a 1.5ha lieu-dit named "L’Echalier". In 2012 they built a small home and winery at the edge of their vines, and found a few other small vineyards in the hills around Rablay. The winemaking philosophy is to keep things simple, intervene as little as possible. The 2018 Echalier was aged for 12 months in used wooden barrels on the fine lees, with further aging of 3-6 month in tank before bottling. The wine shows very high-toned aromas of citrus, pear, mint and beeswax, the palate is very mineral and saline with dried fruits, herbal and stone flavors, bone dry and long. Any lover of Chenin should try this, enjoy over the next ten years...

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2019 Vin de France Vercheny

Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme currently works about ten hectares and  sources some fruit from trusted friends, also working organically. This vintage of the Vercheny (an anagram of Cheverny) is 100% Pinot Noir, we think.... Grapes are hand-harvested, whole cluster fermentation occurs in vat, and the wine ages for at least six months in used 500L barrels. A spectrum of bright black and red fruits present on the nose, with fresh red cherries slowly evolving into cherry candy syrup as your nose lingers in the glass.  The wine is bright with acidity with nice density and a touch of structure framing juicy red raspberries, strawberies, cherries and tangy red apple skin on the lingering finish. Just delicious!

Bonnefoy (La Madone) 2020 Côtes du Forez "La Madone"

The Gilles Bonnefoy "Gamay sur Vulcan" is from 15 to 30 year-old vines, 50% on basalt soils, 50% on granit/clay soils on the slopes of an ancient volcano. Hand harvested with low yields, the grapes are de-stemmed and undergo a short fermentation with native yeasts. The wine is lightly filtered and bottled with minimal SO2. The color is a warm purple, with lighter violet edges. Nose is plush red and black berries, a minerally smoke, black tea, with an airy, grassy aroma. Palate has tart cherries and plums, a flash of limestone, and a hint of rich, woodsy earth develops on a long, engaging finish. The wine's structure, crisp but juicy, makes it incredibly drinkable. Complex and fresh, serve with a slight chill, and drink this summer. David Hatzopoulos

Bonnefoy (La Madone) 2020 Côtes du Forez "Migmatite"

The 2020 Cote du Forez "Migmatite" from Gilles Bonnefoy at Les Vins de la Madone is a extraordinary Gamay from 50 year-old vines in a unique parcel of granite/clay soils very rich in mica. The grapes are hand-harvested with yields of only 25 hl/ha,  followed by whole cluster fermentation with native yeasts. Aging is in cuve inox, with a light filtration and the wine is bottled with minimal SO2, per Demeter Biodynamic rules.  The wine shows a deep black/purple color with elegant aromas of ripe black fruits, very floral and fresh.The palate is fabulously deep, dense and velvety with lush black fruits above a very present saline mineral character that lifts the vibrant black fruits in the long refreshing finish. Just a beautiful wine and perfect with grilled foods this summer, charcuterie  and cheeses or just sipped cool by itself. This is the most "serious" of Gilles' wines to be offered this year -  put a few in the cellar as the wine should develop nicely over the next 3 to 5 years. Highly recommemded!

Gilles Bonnefoy's vibrant "Les Rougeots du Clos" is from young vines of three Gamays: Gamay de Bouze, Gamay de Chaudenay and Gamaret (a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner, resistant to grey rot, with bright black fruit flavors). The vines grow at 1,800 ft in a single parcel on granit soils with mica and clay. The wine shows a bright red/black color with very floral, complex, earthy aromas of blackberry and black raspberry with gorgeous fruit on the ripe supple palate, with terrific length of earth, minerals and deep black fruits. Really a fascinating and very "gouleyant" wine to serve cool with grilled foods this summer, fresh goat cheeses and even chocolate desserts!  David Lillie

Bonnefoy (La Madone) 2020 IGP Urfé Roussanne de Madone

 The beautiful Roussanne from Gilles Bonnefoy is from 20 year-old vines (partly massale selection from Quenard in Savoie) grown on the steep south face of the volcano of Purchon.  Bonnefoy  farms these young vines carefully, keeping yields  very low to promote concentration and  harvesting late (Roussanne takes a long time to ripen fully) and by hand. Native yeast fermentation takes place in used barrels; the wine ages in the same.  In the glass, the Roussanne  is pale and shows  a very expressive nose of white flowers, green herbs, and a touch of orchard fruits. Given the freshness of the nose, the palate is surprisingly and lusciously dense and complex, with pear, peach, and apple as well as long and broad minerality. A great expression of Roussanne on unique Volcanic terroir.   Only 3000 bottles produced.

 The Bonnefoy 2020 "Sauvignons" is 60% Sauvignon Gris and 40% Sauvignon Blanc (massale selection) grown in basalt soils on the east face of the volcano of Purchon. Farming is certified organic and Biodynamic, all harvests are by hand, and Gilles Bonnefoy has a low-intervention approach in the cellar, where he eschews additives or new oak. The nose shows flinty stone and ripe citrus notes that continue on the palate,  which shows further notes of gooseberries and a slight tropicality. There's nice density and length here, making it a quite serious expression of Sauvignon, distinguished by its long and dense mineral finish. A lovely wine that should definitely not be served too cold: this is Sauvignon with real substance.

Bonnefoy (La Madone) 2020 Vin Mousseaux de Qualité Bulle Rouge

 The delicious Bulles Rouge de Madone from Gilles Bonnefoy is made from direct presss of Gamay de Bouze and Gamay de Chaudenay (teinturier). There is a low temperature fermentation in tank, then the wine is bottled and continues fermentation with no added SO2 until over 4 bars of pressure, about three months. The wine is then disgorged and re-bottled with a small addition of sulfur. The 2020  Bulles Rouge from Bonnefoy has a lovely dark purple robe. The wine has a medium fine bead with a frothy mousse. The nose offers pretty aromas of wild berries, bramble, and violets. The palate is lightweight and fresh with juicy, dark berry fruit and graphite notes, with a lifted, lip-smacking finish. And while this is delicious (not to mention fun) on its own, there’s enough character here to enjoy with charcuterie, composed salads, or dare we suggest fried chicken. Enjoy this frisky sparkler all summer at the beach at the park or even on your fire escape.

Clos de la Coudraye is an excellent parcel in Vallet on granite subsoil with very old vines.

A delicious classic Muscadet from granite soils, drink now or hold up to 10 years. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

Chevalerie 2017 Bourgueil Diptyque

Diptyque is located on 1 to 2 meters deep sand, gravel intermixed with clay soils on an old alluvial terrace closer to the Loire, at the foothills of the coteau. This terroir  gives supple, fruit driven cabernet without being green or too simple thanks to the biodynamic farming of the domaine. Maceration is short, aging is usually short (4-5 months) and only in tanks. The first vintage of this cuvée was in 2003. This is the vin de soif du the domaine - hyper quaffable, you can serve it slightly chilled, pop it open to pair with pretty much every type of food (except iodine and oily fish) and even keep a couple of years!. If you don’t believe cabernet franc can be delicious, juicy, savoury yet fruity, just try this wine! The 2017, a little tight last year, is now a pure delight after a quick decanting or using large stems. Quite purple in the glass, the nose if full of wild strawberry, crushed raspberry and hint of black berry. You pick up some iris root, Thai basil and forest floor too. In the palate, it is ultra fresh, with great, black raspberry like acidity, more herbal and floral. Tannins are really gentle yet present, with a liquorice root feel. Even if it is the vin de soif, you can drink it over a couple of days - it will only get better! Keep it up to 5 years with no problem. And as David Lillie said "Serve with charcuterie, pork chops or roast chicken and be happy!" 100% Cabernet Franc. Pascaline Lepeltier.

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.

Luneau-Papin 2018 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Excelsior

 Made only in exceptional vintages, the Luneau-Papin "Excelsior - Clos des Noelles" is one of my favorite Muscadets, usually a bit rounder than the granite-soil "L D'Or" but always aromatically complex and with great intensity and length.   The massale-selection vines were planted in 1936 on a terroir of "micaschistes a deux micas," (lieu-dit "La Plecisiere") exposed full south. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a slow wild yeast fermentation with 36 months of aging on the lees. The 2018 shows subtle, complex aromas of bitter lemon, lime-flower, melon, pear, mint, almond and stone.  The palate is silky, crystalline and dense with white fruits, lemon zest, almond, smoke and wet stone with fabulous length of pear, minerals and taut acidity.  Please decant if drinking now, serve with any elegant seafood dish. Cellar five to fifteen years and serve with richer fish dishes, white meats, rabbit. Beautiful wine!  David Lillie

Tessier 2020 Cheverny Rosé (Pinot Noir, Gamay)

Philippe and now Simon Tessier are making really delicious wines from the organic vineyards in Sologne. Under the Cheverny AOC, they make white and red, but also rosé : the sandy clay soil as well as the grapes (Pinot Noir and Gamay) are perfectly suited for the style. Of course, don't expect a boring, insipid, pale salmon whitish rosé. There is always some serious depth and length in their wine! With the 2020 as in 2019, you have on top more texture and power than usual: the warm summer led to ripe, concentrated berries. This bottling is more aromatic than usual, with notes of dried rose, pink grapefruit and pomegranate. The attack is creamy and rich, but the wine quickly balances out the alcohol but a really nice bitter edge of pomelo, and the acidity kicks in at the end. It is the type of rosé that can pair really with pretty much anything, and that will have the texture you want when the days will start to be chilly: comforting yet energetic. Serve it in a white wine glass and pair it with what you be pleased to cook, be it some fried squids with spicy aioli, a chana masala or any kind of cheese. 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Gamay.

Villemade, Hervé 2019 Cheverny Les Ardilles

 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.

A spunky and sippable Pinot Noir from Herve Villemade. The 2020 offers high notes of brambly red fruits, rhubarb, sea salt and pie crust on the nose which is pleasantly funky. Ripe fruit and savory spice abounds on the attack and a jaunty mineral acidity buoys the succulent red berry notes over a bitter black tea finish. A delicious Pinot to serve now with a slight chill. Pair with grilled mushrooms, roast chicken, tuna burgers...

We love rosés from Cassis - a great location and terroir for wine despite the chic little town and hordes of tourists! In a vineyard dating back to the 13th century, situated a few hundred metres from the Mediterranean, the Domaine du Bagnol produces one of the most elegant of rosés. Part Grenache, giving structure and weight and part Cinsault, giving delicate red fruit and spice aromas, this pale salmon-colored wine is a refreshing treat!

A blend of Fer Servadou and Cabernet Franc, with short maceration, but enough to provide good material and weight. The fruit profile is more Boysenberry and blackberry, with subtle herbs and floral notes. Partial whole cluster fermentation. -EL

Dorbon, Joseph 2018 Arbois Trousseau Vieilles Vignes

Joseph Dorbon’s 2018 Trousseau Vielles Vignes has zero added sulfur. Grapes come from southeastern facing slopes and soils of yellow limestone/clay marl. Fruit is picked by hand in late September. In the cellar, the grapes are destemmed before natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After aging in stainless for 12 months, the wine is bottled without fining or filtering. It boasts a clear, glimmering cranberry color. The nose begins with aromas of savory cherry and red flowers. There’s an attractive sweetness. It eventually settles into a lovely bouquet of steeped earl grey, lemon, ginger, and mint. With remarkably clean flavors, the palate is zesty and funk-free. There are evenings that I crave the earthy, spicy, barnyard profile Trousseau so often delivers, but I am equally thrilled by examples like Dorbon’s - pure, lively; clocking in a notch below true tartness. Firm and wild red berries, birch, dark citrus and black pepper fill out a fresh structure of sneaky tannin and mouth watering acidity. I finished my last couple glasses with a blue cheese hamburger - one of my favorite pairings of 2021, so far. David Hatzopoulos

This delightful estate uses one-third Syrah, one-third Grenache and one-third Cinsault in their Corbières Rouge, grown on limestone/clay soils in the foothills of Mont Alaric, certified organic since 2007. The wine shows aromas of blackberries, ripe plums, and tiny wild blueberries, as well as notes of balsam wood. Like all the best Languedoc offerings, there's a wild edge here with a bit of funk that is tempered by juicy sleekness. Its excellent balance and wealth of ripe tannins make it a natural at the table - serve with a stew or grilled meats, a coq au vin with farm chicken or guinea hen, and full-flavored cow cheeses.

Galantin 2019 Bandol Rosé

Domaine Le Galantin in Bandol is based in Le Plan du Castellet and practices organic farming (not certified), fertilized by sheep, with manual and mechanized weed control and only organic treatments. The 2019 Rosé is approximately 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Cinsault and 20% Grenache, from vines planted on southwest facing hillsides, with clay/limestone soil. The grapes are hand-harvested, after which the bunches are cooled down  for a two day cold soak to extract fruit, color and aromatics.  10% of the wine is saignée, the rest comes from grapes treated as for making white wine.  Classic Provençal rosé with a pale robe, delightful tree-fruit, melon, and citrus notes (peach, nectarine, grapefruit) and a crisp finish. Structured and complex, with citrus and red fruit on the palate with a fine core of minerality. Enjoy with tapenade or vegetables on the grill.

Ilarria 2018 Irouléguy Rouge

In the French Basque hills, enveloped by Spain, Peio Espil tends his family’s estate with impressive care. Peio, after careers in both Sauternes and Jurancon, returned to Irouleguy to work sustainably, and received complete organic certification in 2008. Here he strictly adheres to a Fukuoka-inspired way of organic farming, with biodiversity in the vineyards and no plowing, with the overall health of the soil being his number one concern. The 2018 Rouge is 55% Tannat, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Cabernet Franc and it's a great vintage for this unique wine, being a bit rounder than usual and  quite delicious for current drinking. While packing a punch of dark flavors of plummy fruit, cured meats, and green herbs, there is also a signature lifted elegance to the wine. This has been attributed to Peio’s commitment to vineyards of limestone, which is unique in a land known for iron-rich soils. On the table, this red would do well with Mediterranean lamb or pork dishes.

Ilarria 2020 Irouléguy Rosé

"This is one of my favorite rosés" said Eric Asimov in the NY Times and for good reason, as this  beautiful blend of Cabernet Franc  and Tannat is a vibrant and refreshing  wine that pairs well with salads, seafood, white meats and grilled foods all year round. Domaine Ilarria practices superb organic, no-till farming with the goal of creating living soils that provide needed micro-nutrients and  natural defenses to the vine. This is evident in al the estates wines which have a remarkable brightness and saline mineral character balancing the vibrant fruit.  The 2020 Rosé shows a dark pink/garnet color and ripe, sweet aromas of red currant, black cherry, pomegranate, rose, citrus and earth. There is luscious deep cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit on the palate  which is sapid and round with earth, mineral and citrus flavors that continue in the very long ripe and juicy finish. This full-bodied rosé is  more forward and lush than usual and is drinking beautifully now - it will evolve gracefully for three to five years, but it's insanely delicious now so why wait?  Only a small quantity reaches the US, be sure to grab some of this rare treat for the summer or for the cellar. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

L'Ostal (Ostal) 2018 Vin de France Les Vignals

100% Malbec. I first met Charlotte Perot at a wine fair in France, where she was nestled in a corner, quietly pouring her wines. I was curious to taste the L'Ostal wines, as we rarely see dynamic, natural wines coming out of Cahors. The wines were fascinating... dark and full of flavor, yet vibrant at the same time, with fresh acidity balancing luscious black fruit. Though technically not Cahors (Charlotte and her husband Louis bottle their wines as Vin de France), they spent time learning from Simon Busser, one of our favorite Cahors producers, and the wines speak of the region. A very pure, natural Malbec that should develop nicely with another 5 or so years in the bottle, or over the course of the night if opened soon. For any fan of no-sulfur wines who occasionally prefers a wine with dark fruit and full body, this is a MUST!  -Eben

Marnes Blanches (Geraud Fromont) NV Cotes du Jura Cremant Reserve

100% Chardonnay from vines planted in the 1970s. Tank fermented, elevage in barrel. No dosage and rests on the lees for two years before being disgorged.  A radiant but substantial color of dry, golden grass with a long lasting, frothy crown. The nose has a savory element of baked lemon tart, with an accent of apricot. On the palate, there are flavors of lemon, lime, and a hint of spicy white pepper. The wine crackles on the tongue with strong sparky bubbles, but has some density and texture.  Floats with ease between two contrasting styles, one being rich, the other being zippy. Well placed, right in the middle. David Hatzopoulos

This is a fun, refreshing traditional method sparkler from winemaker/farmer Geraud Fromont in the Jura. 100% Chardonnay, with most of the blend from the 2018 harvest, is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and left on the lees for 15 months before bottling with no dosage and no SO2. On the nose is firm golden apple and crushed white rock, and on the palate is apple, fresh grass, a bit of sea-salt, and  a touch of bitter herbs, with very soft bubbles. A solid choice for aperitif, that's meant to be fun and not overly complex.

"En Quartre Vis" (topped-up Chardonnay) is sourced from a few different parcels, all of them vinified separately in neutral barrel then  blended together in stainless steel tank before bottling with minimal added sulfur. The robe is a cheerful lemon color in the glass and offers vivid aromas of clementine, fresh mint, honey, and crisp apple skins. The body is light and nervy with taut acidity beneath layers of tangy citrus and salted melon on the long finish. The flavors continued to evolve on the second day; this wine should shine in 3 years.

Marnes Blanches 2018 Cotes du Jura Savagnin Aux Bois

This Savagnin is from a parcel of heavy limestone, with the addition of dense fossil concentration. The vines were planted in 2012.  Fruit is picked by hand. The grapes are pressed into neutral barrique, where they age for about 2 years. The tasting note from our supplier describes the Savagnin Aux Bois as a "pristine, powerful wine with a strong mineral core supported by tropical fruits and citrus." There is no added SO2 to this bottling from Marnes Blanches. The wine is a pretty lemon on the nose. Half an hour into opening, the wine is bitter lemon, herbs, and unripe yellow apples on the palate. The nose is lemon meringue and salt. In the end, the palate fattens up. I've realized, the whites of this producer are obviously good... and the reds are mysteriously good. Drink them both, one for real joy, and the other for an intriguing, satisfying puzzle.

The palate is dense and very mineral with hints of stone fruits, red currant, brown spice and citrus, quite complex and elegant. This will benefit from long decanting or a few years in the cellar.

Tour du Bon 2019 Bandol Rosé

The magnificent Bandol appellation, known for its powerful reds and structured, elegant rosés, borders the Mediterranean Sea. Half a mile inland on a hillside near a tiny village called Le Castellet, Domaine de la Tour du Bon is quietly making some of the best wines that the appellation has to offer.  The terroir here is a clay-limestone mix with a red subsoil. The 12 hectares of vines form a natural amphitheater overlooking the sea, and with abundant sunshine and very little rain, this is the hottest area in the appellation. Their beautiful rosé is made from Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault, and Clairette. Lovely aromas of red currant, cherry and raspberry with citrus and herbal notes. The palate is round and expressive, but backed by good acidity. Quite long with lingering ripeness and minerality. Serve with grilled tuna or chicken or enjoy by itself and think of the Mediterranean....

Foradori 2018 Vigneti delle Dolomiti Teroldego Lezer

Lezer was first made in 2017, when hail led to damaged grape bunches. Not wanted to extract too much from the broken skins, Foradori went for a very short maceration of just a few days, and released the wine as a light and fun alternative to their more serious red wine offerings. It was a hit, and (somewhat reluctantly) they agreed to keep making it-to our great satisfaction. The 2019 is as delicious as previous vintages, light and juicy, fresh, easy-drinking yet still engaging, with notes of cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate, ripe strawberry, ripe red cherry, cherry pit, and a hint of citrus peel. Perfect with a slight chill, and a great light red for spring and summer. Oskar Kostecki

Galardi 2007 Campania Terra di Lavoro Roccamonfina

A blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso grown in volcanic soils in the hills of northwestern Campania, Fattoria Galardi's Terra di Lavora (land of labor) is a intended to be a vin de garde. The wines seldom express overt fruit and tend towards the savory and mineral. Quite dark in the glass-nearly black-and still youthful appearing despite its age. Aromatically it is somewhat reticent, wild blackberry, smoke, plums, violets, graphite, loam, anise, and saddle leather reveal themselves with vigorous decanting. Initially on the palate the tannins are ripe, but still very much present. Over time more dark fruits emerge, leaning toward hedge fruits, along with savory sense of earthiness. There is a great deal of mineral complexity coiled within. The finish is quite long and savory. We'd decant for a few hours and serve with lamb ragu or dry-aged beef now or cellar for another 10-15 years for a detailed expression of the volcanic terroir to emerge. JCM

Little City Vermouth Dry Vermouth 375ml

This is an entirely hand-crafted, locally made dry Vermouth from Will Clark of Little City. What started out as a hobby in his living room has grown into a full-fledged operation supplying bars, restaurants, and retail stores. The base wine for these aromatized, fortified spirits is actually made from 100% Cayuga White, a hybrid grape designed for the cold winters of the Finger Lakes, which is then blended with 38 macerated grasses, botanicals, barks, and berries. Notes of almond and chamomile on the nose with yellow apple, with a more savory palate of dried herbs, dried chamomile, and celery salt on the finish. I love how flavorful and a little vegetal this blend is, making it truly worthy of a wet martini (the best way to drink a martini, in my humble opinion). Michelle DeWyngaert

Little City Vermouth Sweet Vermouth 375ml

Created in Harlem and bottled by Finger Lakes Distilling, this is a great Sweet Vermouth that straddles feeling classic and modern. The base of both the sweet and dry Little City's is the hearty Cayuga White, a hybrid grape found in the Finger Lakes which lends these Vermouth's  a brighter acidity. The Sweet Vermouth is blended with 53 botanicals, many of them the usual suspects such as gentian, juniper, cinnamon, and orange peel, but with a few more interesting additions like black sesame, black walnut leaf, and grapefruit peel. In order to keep the integrity of these flavors, heat is never used, only maceration until it reaches the perfect balance. Michelle DeWyngaert

Adega Regional de Colares 2015 Colares Arenae [500ml]

 This is a value: Colares, let alone with age, at $30 is not something we see very often any longer. This bottling of Malvasia is from the Adega Regional, one of the standard-bearers of winemaking in the region, founded in 1931. The grapes come from the region's famed old, ungrafted vines grown on beach sand (Arenae is the local name for the sandy soils where these old vines grow ). Medium-bodied, saline, spicy, and elegantly textured, this is a classic, elegant expression of Colares Malvasia that is in an outstanding place for drinking now, or for holding onto over the next few years.  Ben Fletcher

An interesting technique is utilized here, thanks to research Fernando has been doing with ground chestnut flowers, which have been found to help stabilize wine without addition of sulfites. Some ground chestnut flowers are used during fermentation. Don't worry, the wine doesn't taste like chestnuts, or chestnut flowers for that matter. It's bright and zippy, with fresh red berries and satisfying tartness. Perfect with a chill. -EL

The grapes are hand-harvested, crushed by foot, and then allowed to spontaneously ferment in lagar for about seven days. The wine is then matured in large, seasoned oak vats for one year. Showcasing juicy, bright red fruits, terrific acidity and soft tannins, this is a lovely, medium bodied Baga.

Duckman (Maria Joao Pato) 2020 Lucky Duck Pet Nat

50% Baga, 50% Fernão Pires from Maria João Pato, aka Duckman. The white juice of the red grape Baga is used, and the Fernão Pires provides bright salinity. A very fun, quacky Pet Nat, with lees aging providing texture to balance with the zippy acidity.  -EL

Duckman (Maria Joao Pato) 2020 Vinho Branco

This white from Maria Joao Pato (aka Duckman) is 100% Bical, from young vines on sandy soils. There's a short maceration on the skins, but not to arrive at an orange wine, more for texture and grip. Fermentation is in oak and stainless steel, and aging is in  French oak for about 6 months before bottling. It's salty, refreshing and quite fun all around. No filtration, so there is some cloudiness to the wine.   -Eben

Filipa Pato 2020 Bairrada Tinto 'Dinamico'

The name for this wine, Dnmc (or Dinamico), reflects the idea that expressions of the local Baga grape from different locations will produce a complex, and dynamic wine. It also could be seen as a nod to the biodynamic principles and treatments that Filipa Pato and William Wouters have introduced in their vineyards. They have been increasingly focused on organic and biodynamic viticulture as the years go by, much to our delight! 100% Baga, this medium-bodied red is fresh, and vibrant, with a touch of wild red fruit and dark berries, and subtle spice. Fermentation and aging is in tank with minimal extraction, but long maceration periods still provide good structure to the wine. Overall, it's a great introduction to the very enjoyable Baga grape, specifically here involving limestone terroir and the Atlantic influence of western Bairrada. -EL

Folias de Baco 2020 Vinho Tinto Uivo Renegado

This is a fascinating field blend of 25 different indigenous Portuguese varieties planted 80 years ago on steep slopes of schist and granite! The blend is ~50% white varieties, mainly Gouveio, Abigato, Donzelinho, Malvasia Fina, Viosinho, and 50% reds, Rufete, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Mourisco, Tinta Roriz. All varieties are hand-harvested separately at their peak, sorted in the vineyeard, and macerated whole cluster for three days. Fermentation occurs in large granite lagers, and then the wine is aged for six months in cement, with 15% in two-year old chestnut oak.   -EL

Lés-a-lés 2017 DOC Beira Interior Sério de Síria

This is a fascinating white from the Síria grape. Les-a-Les is a team of two winemakers who make wines in the Beiras always with minimal treatments (in this case zero) and always allowing wild yeast fermentation. The vineyard parcel is located in Beira Interior, and was discovered by the winemakers to be an abandoned plot. After requesting permission from the town to tend to the parcel and harvest the grapes, they received approval and were able to make this wine. This was the second, and last time the wine was made, as someone arrived in 2018, claiming to be the "owner" of the vineyards, and demanding money for the grapes! The wine is aged on the lees for a year in neutral barrels. It has an oxidative lean that instantly reminded me of Jura Savagnin and unfortified Palomino. Nice density from the lees aging, and good freshness from the altitude (650 meters). All in all a very tasty and intriguing Portuguese white!  ~Eben

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

Banneret 2018 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The Banneret estate dates back to 1405 and is now run by the Vidal family. Located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with a vineyard strewn with 'galets' to warm the vines, many of which are over 80 years old. The blend used is 60% Grenache from their highest parcels (close to the famous Rayas vineyard), 10% Syrah from near Bois de Boursan, and 10% Mourvèdre from near the Rhône River. The remaining 20%  is comprised of the 10 other grapes that are permitted in the appellation adding a unique quality to this classic wine. Everything is co-fermented in concrete tanks and then aged for 18 months in Burgundian oak. "...pale red; the nose has a really accurate, pinpoint red-fruited, spiced aroma, on strawberry, instant freshness, a vegetal touch from the stems. The “other” varieties have helped its poise – it’s really naked, unadorned, impressive, is wide and sustained, skips out, but carries true foundation. The palate continues well, links to the nose, is on white pepper, much spicing, a compact strawberry juice at its centre, a touch of violet on the aftertaste. This is cerebral, slinky Châteauneuf, for the Thinkers. It holds well, is firm on the finish, the length good. It has a good skeleton, and will age well. The palate is perfumed, and there is glow on the aftertaste. Drink until 2050." - DrinkRhone

Barou 2019 Vin de Pays Syrah "Vernes"

From 40 - 50  year-old Syrah vines in Charnay, just outside the Saint-Joseph AOC, on living soils tended organically for forty years by Marie-Agnès and Emmanuel Barou. Plowing by tractor or weeding by hand on the steep slopes. Hand-harvested, wild-yeast fermentations, aging one year in 4 to 5 year-old barrels. The 2019 Cuvée des Vernes is simply sensational and one of the best values in the store! The wine shows deep black/red color with lush aromas of blackberry liqueur, licorice, blueberry and musk with cool minty notes - really lovely! The palate shows cool dense black fruits with dark chocolate, blueberry, earth, smoke and citrus with a beautiful, refreshing finish of minerals and fruit. This is an outstanding Syrah, equal to many Saint-Josephs and simply delicious for current drinking. Serve a bit cool with almost anything from roast chicken to pork, rabbit, charcuterie and lamb, or just enjoy by itself. Case quantities are available. Highly recommended! DL

The young Pablo Hocht makes beautiful wines at his Biodynamic estate in Seguret (southern Rhone) - his "Rosé du Coucou" is a  refreshing direct-press rosé made with  old vines of 60% Grenache and 40% Cinsault. The 2020 shows a very pale onion skin color with floral aromas of raspberry, peach, citrus and stone. The palate is very light, silky and elegant with subtle raspberry fruit with hints of melon and earth, finishing with nice length of mineral flavors and refreshing acidity. This is a very lovely wine at a great price!  David Lillie

Sake

Chikurin Otoko Junmai Ginjo Namazake 720ml

I met Niichiro Marumoto at a sake tasting hosted by Brooklyn Kura in June, and was immediately drawn to what he is doing at Marumoto Shuzo. Unlike about 99% of the industry, Niichiro-san farms all the rice that is used in the production of his sake. Since World War II, Japan has had a system where all rice production was controlled and distributed by the government. Only in the last few decades have sake producers been able to buy directly from rice farmers; but the rice market is still dominated by large regional co-ops with immense buying power. When Niichiro-san took over the family business at a young age, he quickly realized that a way for a small company like his to be not only sustainable going forward, but also to guarantee the best quality of raw material for their product was simply to grow everything himself. This is the first time that Chikurin namazake (unpasteurized sake) is available in the US, and it is beautiful. Made from 100% Yamadanishiki rice, and milled to 50%, so could technically qualify as a junmai daiginjo. It opens with notes of honeydew melon, white peach, peach blossom, green apple skin, cucumber, cucumber water, lemon zest, fresh cut grass, and a hint of some rice savoriness. Complex flavors on both the nose and the palate, with good acidity, and a soft, almost velvety mouthcoating texture. Very expressive, this sake feels slightly tingly on the palate when you first open the bottle. Juicy, yet elegant, and very fun to drink! Oskar Kostecki

Tomita Brewery Shichi Hon Yari Namazake 720ml

Tomita brewery was established in the 1540s in Shiga Prefecture, close to the city of Kyoto. They are working intensively with local farmers and use only organically grown, pesticide-free rice in their production. For this bottling, they use Tamazakae rice, indigenous to Shiga. Tomita is a very small, old school operation, and I've always found their sake to be quite rustic. This namazake is no exception, and though there are the wonderful lively qualities associated with unpasteurized sake, there is also an undercurrent of a more savory quality, slightly earthy, slightly mushroomy, with a faint aroma of dried leaves. This is coupled with grapefruit zest, orange blossom, and a yogurty, lactic quality on the palate. A very fascinating and complex sake, and incredibly food friendly. Oskar Kostecki

Alpamanta 2020 Mendoza Breva Pet-Nat

Move over Lambrusco, this is the sparkling red you didn't know you needed! The Alpamanta vineyards are situated at over 3000ft elevation in the Ugarteche sub-region of Mendoza. Criolla Grande (a cross between País and Muscat of Alexandria) is made sparkling with the methode ancestrale creating a frothy, savory, gently tannic wine that is begging to consumed with pizza or sausage and peppers. When we first opened this wine fresh from the fridge it seemed relatively unexpressive, but after letting it come up in temperature (the way you would treat a pipeno with just a slight chill) we were well rewarded with notes of clove, raspberry, smashed purple plums, mulch, cocoa shells, and wild blackberries.

Rogue Vine 2020 Valle de Itato Grand Itata Blanco

A bright, crisp, summery white wine from vines that are over a century old! Chile's largely forgotten vines of the Itata Valley are some of the oldest in the New World, and are largely own-rooted, bush vines on granite-rich soils. The "Grand Itata Blanco" is a blend of 40% Semillon, 30% Moscatel, and 30% Riesling, direct-pressed, aged in neutral oak, and then rested in bottle for three months before release. The aromas of this wine leap out of the glass with just-snapped jalapeno, white lillies, grapefruit, tarragon, and lime. On the palate the acidity is vibrant and bracing, notes of freshly squeezed lemon, chamomile, crunchy peppers, and sweet basil. A great pairing with tortas and tacos! Michelle DeWyngaert

Viña Maitia 2020 Maule Valley Pais Pipeño

"Pipeno" actually translates to barrel, but in this case it refers to an old tradition of making large barrels of juicy, quaffable wine for everyday drinking, and this wine is a perfect example. The blend is 80% Pais and 20% Carignane from 120-year-old vines. Though the climate is very warm in Maule, the Humbolt Currant helps maintain acidity and keeps the fruit from over-ripening. The País is destemmed with a traditional zaranda, and the Carignan is left whole-cluster. Together the wine is aged briefly in concrete before bottlling.

Located in O Rosal, the most southern sub-zone of Rías Baixas in the Minho valley overlooking Portugal, Vimbio is a small winery, with a total of 2.5 hectares, planted in 1985 and owned by young couple Martín Crusat and Patricia Elola. Practicing biodynamic farming. There are no herbicides or systemic treatments applied (except for minimal application against mildew). The wine has a beautiful intensity on the palate and vibrant acidity. On the nose, fresh white flowers, light herbs and Atlantic saline notes mingle with tart lemon and creamy nectarine notes. This is a great wine to pair with seafood, grilled fish and any summery salads. -CC

Based in the Eastern Penedès, where Macabeu is the most important local grape and also at its most expressive. This pet-nat is from adjacent parcels of Macabeu and Xarel-lo on limestone soils, partially fermented in old 225L barrels and stainless steel before bottling to finish fermenting in bottle with no filtering, sulfur, or other additives.

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. -Eben

Bodegas Ponce 2019 Manchuela Reto Albilla

An old Chambers Street favorite, Juan Antonio Ponce's 'Reto' is from the rare Albilla grape, sourced from different parcels in Manchuela (near Valencia), averaging around 50-year-old, planted on chalky and calcareous soil. The grapes are then fermented using native yeast in old oak, and aged on lees for 8 months in old oak barrels, with no fining or filtering, and minimal addition of sulfur before bottling. Reto's intense minerality, chalky mouthfeel, and long saline finish are reminiscent of some of our favorite young Chenin Blancs and Burgundies. An extremely elegant, interesting, and versatile wine at this price point. Pairs beautifully with rich seafood, pestos, grilled poultry, and cheese plates. Welcome back, Reto!

A collaboration between our dear friend Pepe Raventos and a fellow winemaker from Sant Sadurni D'Anoia, in Catalunya, Francesc Escala. Can Sumoi is an old farm dating back to 1645, at 600m altitude. This is a pristine sparkling from Ancestral method, and technically Brut Nature. Montonega is the grape, a local name for Parellada (or perhaps a distinct clone of Parellada). Alcohol is 9.5%, and the wine is completely dry and airy. A really impressive wine for the price. Thanks Pepe!  -EL

Castellroig is one of the finest values in sparkling wine and a great example of the wines of Corpinnat: it is farmed organically, harvested by hand, aged at least 18 months on the lees, and fermented with native yeasts. Marcel Sabate and his team have a remarkable understanding of their vineyards and have mapped out every minute shift in terroir on their estate; this fanatical approach to quality shows in the bottle. The focus of this cuvée is Xarel-lo, a favorite among the grapes of the Penedès for its refreshing mineral qualities and notes of mountain herbs. A light-on-its-feet bubbly for everyday occasions.

Fermented and aged without exposure to oak, this wine is red fruited and almost juicy, balanced by bright, clean acidity and a deep mineral core.

López de Heredia 2004 Rioja Tondonia Reserva

This is serious Rioja: no new oak, extended pre-release bottle aging, and exquisite vineyard sites (for the Tondonia, vines dig deep through fine-grained alluvial soils overlooking the Ebro River that were first planted almost 140 years ago).  Don Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta founded Lopez de Heredia in 1877, and the wines continue to serve as a benchmark for the region (the familyy business is now led mainly by his grandson Pedro, and great-granddaughter Maria Jose). The bodega comprises four distinct vineyard areas and extends to a total of 170 hectares, with Tondonia being the largest and most famous of the holdings. Jancis Robinson considers 2004  "a very good year, with wines that should last well," and the Tondonia Reserva is certainly that: powerful, lean, and layered  with gorgeous, generous fruit and all the cigar box, cedar, and leather notes a lover of classic Rioja could wish for.

Luis Perez makes wines in Jerez mostly, and is a partner in the La Riva project with Ramiro Ibanez. 'El Triangulo' is a red he produces from the local Tintilla grape in Cadiz. Also known as Tintilla de Rota, because it is almost solely found in and around the town of Rota,  this grape is apparently related to Graciano (from Rioja/Navarra), and is known for its pigment and acidity. It produces a dark and dense looking wine which surprises on the palate with lift and freshness. The vines here are in Balbaina, on chalky soils. A delicious, dark red, with blackberry notes, and medium body. Perfect for a summer BBQ!

After meeting Jonatan Garcia, who is known for the Suertes del Marques wines, and is originally from Tenerife, this grower began selling grapes to Jonatan, and the Sortevera project was born. This is a blend of many grapes, mostly Vijariego Negro, Listan Gacho, Malvasia Rosado, Listan Negro, Negramoll, with additional local grapes in small percentages. Fruit comes from the Margalagua, Fajanetes, and Amogoje parcels, all from sloped vineyards at higher altitude, clearly expressing the volcanic soil. A must for any lover of Canary Island reds.  -EL

Vinedos del Jorco 2016 Cebreros 'Las Enebradas'

Las Enebradas is all Garnacha, from the Cebreros DO in the Gredos. Raul Perez is behind the project, which is named after the tiny .25 hectare parcel that is at 1000m altitude, farmed by a local grandpa whom Perez befriended several years ago. This wine has everything we love about Gredos Garnacha, with dried fruit, herbs, and a frame of chiseled minerality from granitic soils. A big nod to classic Rhone Grenache. Aging in large old barrels. Acidity is perfect, providing lift and elegance to the earthy profile. The 2016 is the current release, and is ready to drink, but definitely shows potential for aging another 5-10 years.  -EL

Bloomer Creek 2020 Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc 'Vin d'été'

Bloomer Creek Vineyard is lovingly cared for by Kim and Debra Engle using organic methods, no herbicides, and no irrigation.Depending on the vintage, the Cabernet Franc at Bloomer Creek gets a different treatment. In cooler years, like 2020,  the fruit is left in mostly whole clusters and is aged in stainless steel for a lighter, fresher style with crunchy red fruit and brambly vines. Definitely meant to be chilled and enjoyed young!

Eminence Road 2019 Finger Lakes 'Acidalia' Elizabeth's Vineyard

This is a vibrant Bordeaux-blend for summer! Clocking in at only 11.3% ABV it is full of acidity and freshness, but does not lack on flavor or grip. The Elizabeth's Vineyard is located on the Eastern shore of Seneca Lake on silty-loam over shale. The 2019 blend is 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The fruit is foot-crushed as whole clusters, with once daily punchdowns throughout natural fermentation, then pressed and moved to old oak barrels where it aged for nearly a year. Notes of stewed raspberry, dried rosemary and tarragon, dried roses, and forest floor on the nose. On the palate  is tons of acidity keeping this light and ilfted, with grippy, tongue-coating tannins perfect for pairing with something fatty, fresh off the grill. This wine really starts to open up after an hour in a decanter, but is even more expressive after several hours or even a day. Michelle DeWyngaert

Hope Well 2019 Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

It is Mimi Casteel's incredible dedication to 'regenerative agriculture' that makes this wine from the  Willamette Valley so special and sought-after. Her farming practices go beyond organics and work to actively restore the health of the soil and the land surrounding the vineyard, creating a living, breathing ecosystem. She believes, and I can't help but agree, that this unlocks more flavor and complexity in the grapes because more nutrients and biodiversity is available to the vines. Positioned along an east-facing slope of the Eola-Amity Hills, the Hope Well vineyard experiences an intense diurnal shift that helps maintain freshness even in this warmer vintage. The 2019 vintage was 100% destemmed, aged in 10% new oak.

Keep Wines 2019 Napa Valley Yount Mill Vineyard Pinot Meun

Though this variety has more fame in sparkling wines from Champagne, I have long been fascinated by still Meunier wines, and this bottle from Keep Wines is the perfect example! The fruit comes from the certified organic Yount Mill Vineyard in Napa, which as been farmed by the same family for over 100 years. 20% whole clusters are used, fermented in stainless steel and then aged for six months in neutral barrels before bottling unfined and unfiltered.  Even at only 11.5% alcohol this wine has plenty of substance. On the nose are notes of black cherry, garrigue, red plum, crushed raspberries, and peppery allspice. On the palate is the perfect balance of elegance and rustic earthiness, with lingering, powdery tannins. Michelle DeWyngaert

La Clarine Farm 2019 Sierra Foothills Alors! Rosé

Before becoming winemakers, Hank and Carole were enamored with the wines of the Southern Rhône and Provence, especially of Domaine Tempier in Bandol. This 100% Mourvèdre rosé feels like a love letter to Tempier. Grown organically on volcanic soil from the Sumu Kaw vineyard pressed as whole clusters into tank and puncheon. It goes through natural fermentation and full malo, and rests on the lees for almost a year before bottling, where it ages for another year before its release. This is a rich, savory rosé with notes of white cherry, apple blossom, and sweet, savory quality that reminds me of sautéed onions in the best way. 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.

Ruth Lewandowski 2020 Mendocino Feints Cuvee Zero

Perhaps what I love most about California wines is that there are no rules to follow! This crazy blend from Evan Lewandowski is a combination of red and white grapes fermented together going through a full carbonic maceration and made without any additions or subtractions. The fruit is sourced from the beautiful Fox Hill Vineyard planted in the 1980's in Mendocino and  consists of Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo ~30% Arneis, and a splash of Montepulciano. This is a complex light red wine, but always supremely refreshing, so we recommend serving well chilled, as you would a rosé.

Stolpman Vineyards 2018 Santa Barbara Ballard Canyon Estate Syrah

This is the flagship wine for the Stolpman Vineyards which best represents their vines and the greater Ballard Canyon each year. The Stolpman Estate Syrah is helping to define what a California Syrah really is with its ripe, sun-kissed fruit, that remains concentrated without becoming jammy or "hot" with alcohol. Thankfully the 2018 vintage only saw one heat spike, and it came in early July so the vines had a chance to recover, and allowed for a prolonged hang-time. The grapes were fermented with 50% whole clusters and aged for ten months in neutral French puncheons with sulfur only added at bottling.

Valravn 2018 Sonoma County Pinot Noir

This is such a great value for Sonoma Pinot Noir! By creating lasting relationships with high quality, organically farmed  (some certified, all avoid using chemical sprays and employ cover crops where possible) vineyards, the winemakers of Valravn are able to offer a snapshot of the Sonoma County for a really great price. The fruit is fermented in open-top stainless steel with about 15-20% whole clusters used, and then aged in ~20% new French oak for one year. For each vineyards fruit, the wines are fermented separately and then blind-tasted before creating the perfect blend. On the nose are notes of clove, stewed cherry, treebark, red plums, and a touch of black pepper. The palate is juicy and concentrated, with notes of baking spice, red currant, raspberry, sun-baked soil, and even a bit of blueberry. Very tasty California fruit with just the right amount of new oak! Michelle DeWyngaert

Ceritas 2019 Trout Gulch Vineyard Santa Cruz Chardonnay

The Trout Gulch Vineyard in Santa Cruz is the southern-most site used by Ceritas. A mere 3.5 miles from the ocean with sandy, marine-sediment based soils, this Chardonnay is the most expressive of the the salty maritime air. The vines were planted in 1980 at an elevation of 750ft above sea-level with well draining soils and a cooler average temperature than surrounding appellations . This keeps the grapes from here concentrated with an abundance of acidity.
