Jobard, Laguerre and Superb Summer Whites!

Today's offer features not Remi, Antoine, Charles or François, but rather the superb Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune wines of Claudie Jobard! The great wines of Eric Laguerre from the mountains of the Roussillon are back, including the wonderful "Le Ciste" Blanc, and we have a great recommendation from our friend Jancis Robinson, along with some refreshing summer whites made with - you guessed it - Clairette!

Claudie Jobard

Claudie Jobard

We've been enjoying the Côte Chalonnaise wines of Domaine Claudie Jobard for almost 20 years, which now includes the best plots of her family estate based in Pommard. Her whites from Rully and Montagny show fantastic purity and minerality, with the reds from Rully having perfectly balanced red and black fruits with earth and spice notes - they are beautifully made, delicious and affordable wines. Today's offer includes some of her tiny production from old-vine plots in Pommard, with a few bottles of the wonderful 1er Cru "Les Charmots" from vines that are 104 years-old! And we're very happy to have two whole cases of her brilliant Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru "Sous Fretilles" - this superb vineyard produces some of the most crystalline whites of Burgundy, and Claudie's 2022 is sensational!

Domaine Guillemot-Michel

Speaking of white Burgundy, our friend Jancis Robinson has just published "Sparkling and White Wines for Summer 2024" and her only Burgundy choice was the wonderful 2022 Guillemot-Michel Viré-Clessé "Quintaine:" "A white burgundy at last! And biodynamic to boot, showing that wild-flower thing that many biodynamic wines have. Pizzazz, glamour and quite a bargain for burgundy!" We have about 4 cases left, don't delay!

Mountain wines from Domaine Laguerre

Speaking of bargains, one of the greatest white wine values in the store has just returned in the new shipment from Domaine Laguerre in the Roussillon. The 2022 "Le Ciste Blanc" is a complex, and distinctive mountain wine made from from Marsanne, Roussanne, Rolle (Vermentino), Grenache Blanc and Maccabeu - it's breathtakingly vibrant and delicious - a perfect and wonderfully different summer white!


"Widely distributed southern French variety producing full-bodied whites that can hang on to their acidity quite impressively." Thank you again, Jancis Robinson! Imagine yourself in Provence at a cafe overlooking the sea, enjoying a full-bodied yet crsip and refreshing white wine made with Clairette - we happen to have 3 great examples - from Domaine Turenne, Eric Texier and Domaine des Amphores! We'll see you on the terrace at sundown...
