Bart 2014 Marsannay Rosé

A lovely rose of Pinot Noir from Martin Bart in Marsannay, the 2014 shows a bit more weight than usual in this very pretty vintage of soft, forward fruit. Pale pink color. Pretty hints of strawberry lead to a refreshing palate of berry, citrus and red-currant fruit with good acidity. This is a lovely wine that will be very versatile at the table and refreshingly delicious by itself all summer long (and fall and winter, too) and it's a great value!

Bart 2013 Marsannay Les Champs Salomon

Les Champs Salomon, a vineyard in a prime mid-slope position, gives one of the most dense and powerful of Marsannays, and is always the "biggest" wine in Martin Bart's portfolio. The limestone sub-soil here is similar to that in parts of Gevrey Chambertin, with clay topsoil. The vines are 35 years-old. Hand-harvested, wild yeast fermentation with a long maceration and 18 months of aging in barrels, 30% of which are new. The 2013 is a bit softer than the 2012 - very aromatic and lush with ripe black raspberry and black cherry with violets, dried herbs, cocoa and a bit of toasty oak. The palate shows deep, meaty red fruits with good acidity and soft tannins. This is an opulent and delicious glass of Burgundy that is lovely now, probably best in three to eight years.

Jobard, Claudie 2013 Rully La Folie

Rully is a great source for elegant, though affordable Burgundy. Claudie Jobard produces one of our favorites. The 2014 Montagne La Folie Blanc is sourced from a 2.45 hectare parcel planted over 45 years ago. The flavors shy away from fruit in favor of Chardonnay’s earthy/mineral character making a wine that is a natural fit to soft cheeses and earthy dishes – mushrooms, escargot, etc. Aromatically the wine sings of hazelnut and graphite – a great introduction to Rully’s unique terroir.

Lafouge 2012 Auxey-Duresses Rouge

This is one of our favorite, if somewhat unknown domains of Burgundy. Jean Lafouge and his son Gilles make classic, balanced, beautiful Burgundies at affordable prices and their village level Auxey-Duresses is always lovely and a great value. The 2012 is slightly riper than usual with lovely aromas of strawberry and tart cherry, with violet, rose, citrus and spice. Medium-bodied, with citrusy red fruits on the palate with great balance and refreshing acidity, the wine shows hints of earth and mineral that will develop nicely with time. Lovely now, and a great pairing with poultry, white meats and mild cheeses, best perhaps in 5 to 8 years.

Lafouge 2012 Meursault Les Meix Chavaux

2012 was a vintage of very low yields, giving wines with excellent concentration and firm acidity. The Meursaults of Jean and Gilles Lafouge are among the best values in white Burgundy, though produced in tiny quantities. From eighty year-old vines, in mid-slope on thin well-drained clay/limestone soils, the 2012 Meix Chavaux has very complex lemon, lime and floral aromas. The palate is rich and ripe with white fruits and exotic citrus covering the chalky core, with firm acidity and mineral flavors in the finish. Serve with full-flavored fish dishes, poultry and white meats, mild cheeses. This is a beautiful young Meursault that is delicious now and over the next ten years.

Magnien, Stephane 2012 Morey-Saint-Denis

The young Stephane Magnien is becoming widely known for his elegant, unforced, old-fashioned Burgundies and his delicious "village" Morey-Saint-Denis is an outstanding value. High-toned aromas of raspberry, tart cherry, violet and blood orange with lovely depth and persistence. The palate is medium-bodied with a mineral center, really showing the terroir followed by earthy black fruits and saline acidity that continue on the long stony finish. This may lack the weight of the superb 2010, but the bright subtle fruit and great terroir-expression make this an excellent choice as well. Lovely now, best in five to ten years.

Rapet, Père et Fils 2013 Pernand-Vergelesses Les Belles Filles

The Pernand-Vergelesses vineyard "Les Belles Filles" is a northern extension of "Iles des Vergelesses" and "En Carradeux" facing east which consistently produces a light, elegant, aromatic wine that drinks beautifully young. In 2013, the wine is a bit fuller than usual showing ripe strawberry and blackberry fruit perfectly framed with bright acidity and mineral notes. This is fantastically delicious to drink now and should be even better with a few years of cellaring. Very little of this wine is available so don't delay...

Pernot 2013 Bourgogne Chardonnay

Paul Pernot has some of Puligny-Montrachet’s most coveted holdings, but for everyday enjoyment it’s hard to find fault with his workhorse Bourgogne Blanc. All of the classic Côte-de-Beaune flavors of lemon curd, crème bruleé, and ripe, golden apples. There’s a bit of vanillin from the French oak, but not so much to overwhelm the wine’s inherent charm. If I were planning to eat some seared scallops, I’d have this in the fridge. John Rankin

Chazelles (Domaine des) 2013 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 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. John Rankin

Litaud 2013 Mâcon-Vergisson Les Vieilles Pierres

This Macon is a perennial favorite at Chambers Street Wines. For under twenty dollars one gets to taste the herbal minerality of vines aged up to 80 years old. In classic Macon form there are also delicious flavors of slightly green peach and limestone. Aged in old barrels, the wine has both complexity and drinkability – the full package! John Rankin

Savoye, Pierre 2007 Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes

"From vines averaging sixty years of age on the Cote de Py, the Savoye 2007 is an austere and structured Beaujolais showing the mineral flavors and acidity of the granite soils. Not a fruit-bomb, this wine of terroir will benefit from decanting or an additional 5 to 10 years of aging." We wrote that three years ago and we're happy to report that the 2007 Cote de Py Vieilles Vignes is already drinking beautifully — still not a fruit-bomb, but with a lovely velvety quality to the strawberry/cherry fruit and more delvelpoed aromas. Serve cool with a steak or chop. DL

Croix Rousse 2014 Cotes de Provence Pierres Precieuse Rose

This lovely Provencal rosé is made from Grenache and Cinsault, farmed with organic and biodynamic methods by Christophe Durdilly in Puget Ville north of Hyères. The wine is fermented with wild-yeasts in egg-shaped vats giving beautiful, complex aromas of peach, red fruits and flowers with hints of spice. The palate is full-bodied, round and ripe with good acidity and length - really a delicious and "serious" rosé that should drink well over the next few years. Pair with seared tuna, salade Nicoise, grilled chicken or pork or just sip and enjoy!
