Geschickt 2017 Vin d'Alsace Riesling

This is a complex dry Riesling, and truly a fantastic wine for the money. There are layers of tropical fruit (guava, mango) on the nose, spice, floral notes, and a bit of texture on the palate. A touch opaque in the glass, with great texture in mouth and a ethereal finish. I shared this with a number of different people, including some "untrained" wine drinkers, and it was a unanimous hit. It's a very special wine posing as a"basic" Riesling.   ~Eben Lillie

Geschickt 2018 Vin d'Alsace Obi Wine Keno Bulle

There are a slew of delicious Pet-Nats emerging from Alsace, as younger generations experiment with the newly popular "methode ancestrale." The Geschickt version is Pinot Auxerrois, with a touch of Muscat, and is clean and direct in 2018, while still maintaining a bit of opacity in the glass, and some wildness on the palate.   ~Eben Lillie

Jurtschitsch 2018 Kamptal Rosé vom Zweigelt

Organic Zweigelt grown on loess soils, hand-harvested, fermented and aged on the lees in stainless steel tank. Delightfully crisp and light, with notes of juicy wild strawberries, new raspberries, and cranberries with red florals and Fuji apples on the finish--a tart cherry lemon-limeade of a rosé to enjoy during apéro!

Jurtschitsch NV (b 15) Kamptal Brut Sekt Rosé

Weingut Jurtschitsch is the oldest winery (est. 16th century) in the Kamptal region of Austria and has been in the family since 1868. Vineyards were converted to organic farming in 2006 and all 60 hectares have been certified organic since 2009. The Brut Sekt Rosé is mostly Zweigelt with the balance made up of Pinot Noir and Sankt Laurent, from cooler vineyard sites with calcareous soils. The wine spends 2 1/2 years on the lees and receives 7 g/L dosage. Light, electric pink in the glass, the nose is fragrant with roses, tart cherries, and raspberries. On the palate juicy red berries mingle with stony and salty minerality: refreshing and bone dry. Cari Bernard

Tscheppe 2017 Steiermark Blue Dragonfly

All of the insects and amphibians found on the labels of Andreas Tscheppe's wines are also found in the vineyards, where he biodynamically farms a variety of grapes, like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gelber and Gold Muskateller, and Sauvignon Blanc on tall terraces with no stone walls, only green cover, soil structure and the roots of the vines for support. Soil types in this region range from brown clay to chalky-silty marl (known locally as 'Opok'). Blue Dragonfly is 100% Sauvignon Blanc—the vineyard is a mix of seven different clones planted in 2007. After de-stemming and a direct press, the must goes through spontaneous fermentation and ages in old wood barrels of various sizes up to 2000L for 18 months during which the wine is usually racked twice with low levels of sulfur used. The nose displays a slight reduction with notes of gooseberries and green plum skin, and dark stony minerality. On the palate there's a spellbinding balance struck between integrated acidity and juicy flavors of tangerine, nectarine, and apricot with a mineral, lengthy finish. Cari Bernard

Tscheppe 2017 Steiermark Green Dragonfly

Although I may be in the minority here, Sauvignon Blanc from Styria is my favorite iteration of the grape. Gone are the overly green grasses and tell-tale stench of cat urine in litter boxes; the Sauvignon Blancs from Styria show vibrant stone fruits and a deep mineral cut, layered with a smoky elegance and an age-worthy balance of acidity and structure. Green Dragonfly is sourced from a vineyard planted in 2006, with rootstocks selected to thrive on rocky mountain terroir and a Styrian clone that has looser bunches of smaller berries with thicker skins. Salty and savory on the nose, the Green Dragonfly is actually a touch fuller than the Blue Dragonfly in 17, bursting with juicy stonefruit, Fuji apple, and wild strawberries on the powerful finish.

Zillinger, Johannes NV Weinviertel Revolution White Solera

If the 'Velue' wines are straightforward and true to variety, the 'Revolution' wines are more on the experimental side. I loved this when it was tasted, but was never able to write all the cellar info down. To paraphrase the importer: 'this release is 50% Chardonnay partially fermented (carbonic) in amphora followed by co-fermentation with Scheurebe, and blended with Riesling from a solera of vintages 2013-2015 aged in used wood, unfined, unfiltered with no sulfur added'. A touch of structure and texture from the skin contact is finely integrated with bright notes of nectarine, Fuji apple, quince, and zesty kumquat. Cari Bernard

This is a single variety grappa bottling featuring the wonderfully aromatic "Uva Moscota Fior d'Arancio." Vittorio Gianni Capovilla uses his rare bain-marie still to slowly distill and preserve the lively honey and citrus qualities of the grape.

Esperance 1998 Armagnac

Domaine d'Esperance is run by Claire de Montesquiou, who revived her family's centuries old tradition of distilling Armagnac when she purchased the small domaine in the early 1990s. This 1998 vintage single-cask offering is made from Baco 22A, the only hybrid grape allowed in the appellation, and is a rich and textured, though not sacrificing balance or poise. Dried fruit, prune, toffee and spice, with more savory notes of walnut, forest floor and leather intermingle on the dense and complex palate. A wonderful after dinner Armagnac. Oskar Kostecki

Jean Grosperrin 1989 Cognac de Collection L'Isle d'Oleron

This beautiful single cask of Cognac comes from the collection of Jean Grosperrin, negociant extraordinaire and champion of pure spirits; no added sugar, boise (essentially liquid tannin, made by reducing oak chips in boiling water) or other additives. This is a 25-year-old Cognac with grapes coming from the sandy soils of the island of Oleron, off the west coast of France. The island was once renowned for its production, but years of increased tourism have resulted in only a handful of growers remaining. Rich but elegant, this cask balances still fresh flavors of fruit (apple, pear, pear skin) with baking spice, sultana, almonds, marzipan, and a slight salted caramel quality. This Cognac is fully evolved, with unmistakable savory, umami notes of rancio  on the long and complex finish, but without sacrificing any of the lift and freshness. This is an utterly charming single cask of pure and authentic spirit with lots of soul. Perfect as an after dinner drink, or a gift for the brandy lover in your life. Oskar Kostecki

Burgundy White

Chantal Lescure 2017 Cote-de-Beaune Clos de Topes Bizot Blanc

From vines high on the slope in Beaune just above the 1er Cru L'Ecu, facing east, in a terroir of clay and pebbles over limestone. Harvested by hand into small crates, slow fermentation (4 to 8 months) with wild yeasts, 15 month elevage in barrel, 10% new. The 2017 Clos de Topes Bizot is an elegant white Burgundy, reminding me of a good Pernand-Vergelesses, showing lime-flower, pear, herbal, almond and high-toned citrus aromas with a hint of oak. The palate is dense and very mineral with wet stone, white fruit, herbal and citrus flavors with crystalline purity and terrific length. This is a a real Burgundy of terroir at a very reasonable price! David Lillie

Fichet 2016 Meursault Les Tessons

One of my favorites wines from the vintage and if anyone is thinking of a great gift for the Burgundy lover, this is a fine selection. The 2016 Fichet Meursault Les Tessons has a gold-green robe. Upon opening there’s a fair amount of reduction with aromas of citrus, ripe apple, and stone, which give way after a couple of hours to ripe orchard fruit, hazelnut, wet stones, and lemon curd. The mid-weight palate offers a firm core of minerality with fine density and pure, vibrant ripe fruit that offers a perfect balance of richness to accompany a deeply stony, palate-staining finish. This is a truly beautiful Tessons that should age effortlessly. I love Fichet’s wines, but this is truly beautiful and emotionally satisfying. I’d lay this down for 5-8 years and enjoy for the next 15-20. A truly fantastic Tessons and shows just how adept Jean-Philippe Fichet is in even hugely difficult vintages. John McIlwain

The palate is juicy, supple, and sapid with ripe stone fruit flavors buoyed by a fine bead of chalky minerality on a long, energetic, and detailed finish. Generous, bright, and delicious now, this should really shine with a few years in the cellar. John McIlwain

Champagne

Barbichon NV 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 Point Noir dominant. The robe has a faint peach hue. The nose offers fine mélange of floral and red fruit aromas, hints of wet stone, orange oil, and toast. The palate is bright and racy, yet ample with crunchy minerality and a brisk, mouthwatering finish. John McIlwain

Chantal Lescure 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Bertins

The Chantal Lescure Pommard 1er Cru "Les Bertins" is from a one hectare parcel of old vines on the Volnay side of Pommard, at the base of the slope in clay over hard  limestone and rocky debris. There is a pre-fermentation maceration followed by a long, slow fermentation with wild yeasts, with aging in 30% new barrels with one soutirage after 18 months. The wine shows a deep red/black color with bright, elegant aromas of blackberry and black cherry, deep and meaty with rose, earth and blood orange. The palate is dense and chalky with round, sappy blackberry and red currant fruit, licorice and minerals, lifted by bright acidity. The finish is long with saline minerals and black fruits lingering on the palate. Decant if drinking now - this very elegant Pommard will benefit from five years of cellaring, then enjoy until 2035.

Chantal Lescure 2016 Pommard Les Vignots

From south-facing vines situated on the right hill of Pommard, on the Beaune side, in a terroir of clay-marl. These 35 year-old vines grow in high elevation, about 330 meters above sea-level. The grapes are hand harvested and undergo a long fermentation in stainless steel tanks, punched-down and vatted for 18-25 days. The wine ages in a cold cellar on lees in barrels, 30% of which is new oak. The 2016 features a melody of tobacco leaf, green pepper and red currant on the nose, elegantly followed by black pepper and cherry. The palate is fresh and dense with ripe plum and rich, velvety notes of licorice and blackberry. The 2016 is a Pommard of delightful acidity and ripe, plump texture, and these notes should shine through even more in a few years of cellaring. John David Crosby

From vines planted in 1960,  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 grapes from this high elevation vineyard are harvested late and undergo a short pre-fermentation maceration, aging is in two and three year-old barrels. The 2017 shows high-toned aromas of ripe black cherry fruit with rose, black pepper, earth and citrus, quite elegant. The palate is dense and earthy with sappy black cherry - intensely mineral with firm acidity, earth and black fruits that linger in the long finish. This is a quite elegant 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

Chantal Lescure 2017 Volnay

The Chantal Lescure Volnay is from 50+ year-old vines on sandy clay soils over limestone. Fermentation is with wild yeasts in cuve inox followed by 18 months in barrel, approximately 30% new, bottled without fining or filtration.The wine shows a deep red/garnet color with black cherry, blackberry and red currant aromas, quite floral and elegant with complex hints of earth,  brown spice and tea. With aeration, the palate shows a velvety, chalky texture backed by firm acidity with complex black fruits, mint, bitter chocolate and earth that continue in the long, sappy finish. This is a lovely "village" Volnay that is delicious, if a bit intense in it's youth - decant if drinking now, this will really sing in three to five years and until 2030+. David Lillie

There is nicely sappy, chalky fruit on the palate - black cherry, plum, red currant - backed by firm acidity and the ever-present core of minerality found in the Chantal Lescure wines.

"This fertile soil gives wines that are open and joyous, with delicate spice notes, giving great pleasure in their youth and capable of long-term aging." (J-C Rateau) Indeed the 2018 Clos des Mariages is a gorgeous wine showing a bright mélange of black cherry, strawberry and raspberry with hints of spice, citrus, licorice and violet. The palate shows dense, chalky fruit, sappy and ripe but with firm acidity and mineral flavors that continue in the very long, juicy finish.

From biodynamically farmed 45+ year-old vines. Aged in 1 year-old barrels. The 2016 Arlaud Clos St. Denis is perfumed and earthy at the same time. Stony, deeply fruited, gorgeous nose. Exuberantly aromatic, with aromas of roses, game, black cherry. Fabulous concentration. This has Grand Cru breed. Pungent stoniness and dense orchard fruit on the palate. Dazzling intensity and sap over a profoundly mineral core.  Great persistence and the classic 'peacock's tail' on the lingering finish. This is sophisticated, energetic, and displays great nascent complexity at this stage. Again, wow! This is excellent juice and will be glorious in 10-15 years. John McIlwain

The nose is circumspect via reduction and youth. With air aromas of  blackberry, black currant, and violets emerge. The palate is tightly wound with notes of espresso, mustard seed, cherry stone, Earl Grey, and ripe black fruit.The finish is long expansive and supple with mouthwatering acidity and a savory mineral character.

The nose offers aromas of plum, blue fruits, blood orange rind, a touch of iron, with a bit of oak. The mid-weight palate has bright acidity, flavors of black currant, plum skin, cherry stone, and a pungent earthiness on a long, faintly grippy finish. This has good density and punch on the mid-palate with a fine core of soil notes. This is clearly young, but balances mouthwatering acidity, Nuits St. Georges tannins, and beguiling dark, ripe forest fruits. Decant now or allow the elements to knit. This has a lot of flair and should make for a classic expression of Damodes with 5-7 years in the cellar.

Chantal Lescure 2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots

Nestled in between Richebourg and Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Echezeaux, Les Suchots is a premier cru break in the line of grands cru that runs from La Tache to Mazis-Chambertin, this is likely due to the small dip in the hillside that makes the climat cooler. But what a premier cru! The 2016 from Chantal Lescure is begulingly perfumed with aromas of tea roses, exotic spice, wild cherry, and a cool herbal topnote. The palate is lithe and racy with lovely flavors of red fruits and a game, with more of that Vosne spice and a fine grained structure that balances the lush fruit with bright acidity and framing tannins. This is delicious with a quick decanting, but should really shine with a few years in bottle. Gorgeous Beaux-Monts and attractively priced (relative to its neighbors). John McIlwain

From two small parcels in "Aux Eletois" (below Grand Cru Griottes)  and "les Epointures" (below 1er Cru Clos Prieur) on the more fine and aromatic side of Gevrey. Ruby robe. The nose offers an intriguing contrast between floral aromas and gamy, sauvage notes. For every rose petal, there’s a contrasting earth tone. The tension is compelling. On the palate ripe cherry and raspberry flavors are underlain by a pungent stoniness on a mid-weight, faintly tannic, but fresh, finish. This is delicious, if brambly, now but should gain in suavity with time in the bottle. I’d choose to pair this with something autumnal and savory. Pigéon? Pintade? Daube? John McIlwain

Grapes are hand-harvested, undergo spontaneous fermentation in wood followed by two years of aging in barrique (30% new oak). Many of the barrels in use are from a cooperage in Franken. Salty raspberry seeds, herbs and incredibly grounding earthiness with just enough texture from the oak, vibrant red berries, juicy cherries, balanced by elegant acidity.

Conterno, Giacomo 1937 Barolo Riserva (handwritten vintage tag)

The former owner of the Giacomo Conterno bottles in this offer writes: “As you know, Aldo and Giovanni Conterno divided property in the early 1980s after the death of their father. They also divided the bottles which at that time were still in the cellar, many dating back decades. Among them the 1927 and 1937 – all still without labels. Both Aldo and Giovanni Conterno used their 1960s / early 70s labels when the sold the old bottles. However for the vintage indication they had to improvise something, and they wrote the vintage by hand. Apparently Aldo Conterno also sold his part of the old vntages (I have never seen any so far) and he used his own labels from the 60s.”

Principiano, Ferdinando 2015 Barolo Serralunga

Principiano's Barolo Serralunga comes from two crus:  Lirano, and the younger vine portion of Boscareto, the historic vineyard that abuts the famous Francia. In the 2015 vintage there will be no single cru bottling of Boscareto from Principiano, and so all the grapes are going into the Barolo Serralunga. This wine shows a beautiful light ruby color in the glass, with faint hints of brick red. The nose is deep and complex, with cherry, red fruit, rose and sandalwood combining in a balanced expression of classic Barolo. The palate shows the ripe nature of the 2015 vintage with quite open and approachable fruit, and once again that note of sandalwood and spice. Oskar Kostecki

Sandri, Elio (Cascina Disa) 2017 Barbera d'Alba

Sandri’s 2017 Barbera is a beauty.  I might as well say tell you now: it has 15° alcohol. This is becoming quite common in Piedmont; some winemakers / some wines can handle it, and Sandri seems to have it figured out – at any rate the wine isn’t hot or overblown. It’s a Monforte wine – structured, savory, with lovely balanced black fruit, somewhat restrained; it’s a big wine, but has grace and energy. This is a Barbera that will benefit from a little time in the cellar to unwind and show it’s best, although you can promote the same result if you give it a couple of hours in a decanter. At the moment I’m writing (July), it strikes me as a perfect barbeque wine! Jamie Wolff

COS 2017 IGT Sicilia Zibibbo in Pithos

COS's Zibibbo comes from organically farmed vineyards in Marsala, in the west of Sicily, grown right by the Mediterranean on sandy limestone soils. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts in unlined terracotta amphorae, after which the wine spends another 6 months in clay, before being moved to concrete for 2-3 months and finally bottled. Though fermentation takes place on the skins, the wine isn't overly tannic, with just a hint of spice and phenolic grip in the mouth. On the nose it is wonderfully expressive and floral, with notes of stone fruit, dried apricot, citrus zest, citrus peel, orange marmalade, orange blossom, acacia flowers, and a hint of sea breeze. The palate introduces more floral character, but also more salinity and minerality (crushed white stones) as well as a bit of a chalky texture and a mouth-coating grip. The wine has medium+ acidity, and though maybe it isn't quite as noticeable at first with all the other elements going on, that acidity keeps this wine quite fresh and balanced. It is very expressive, with wonderful intensity, but is in no way overwhelming. I paired this wine with a salade niçoise, but I think it would really shine with grilled fish, or a Mediterranean chicken dish. Oskar Kostecki

Terpin "Quinto Quarto" 2018 Ribolla Gialla 750ml

Franco Terpin farms 12 hectares of vines in the Collio hills, right by the Slovenian border. His Quinto Quarto wines are from younger vines that are not yet destined for the longer-aged reserve wines. This Ribolla Gialla has about 20 hours of skin contact and spends 10 months in stainless steel before being released with no sulfur added. It takes a few minutes for the bottle to open up, but once it does it shows wonderful aromas of pear and other orchard fruit, citrus, preserved lemon, white flowers, as well as a bit of nuttiness. Very vivacious on the palate, with a hint of tannin and mouthwatering acidity.  A great introduction to the style, and to the wines of Franco Terpin. Oskar Kostecki

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2018 Vin de France La Tesniere Pineau D'Aunis

This is a lovely, soft and ripe expression of Pineau d'Aunis from Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme, from vines adjacent to Clos Roche Blanche on clay with silex in organic and biodynamic farming. Aged in old futs and demi-muids, bottled without filtration, minimal SO2. Light red/pink color. The wine shows subtle aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry with rose petal and white pepper, quite elegant and surprisingly delicate in this ripe vintage. The palate is light and pretty with perfect acidity and mineral flavors - this is a beautiful expression of Pineau d'Aunis and a wonderful pairing with any lighter meat dishes and mild chesses.

Bregeonnette (Stéphane Orieux) 2018 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

Stéphane Orieux's father Joseph converted the estate to organic agriculture back in 1967, and Stéphane has continued (now certified by Ecocert) the great vineyard work of his father. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermentations are with wild yeasts and minimal sulfur is used. The 2018 Bregeonnette is from vines on both schist and granite soils and is a beautiful example of a young, vibrant Muscadet from organic farming.

Alain and Christine Boré produce delicious organic wines on their estate in Anjou that are sensational values for everyday enjoyment. Their 2017 Anjou Blanc (Chenin) is superb, with lovely aromas of pear and apple, fresh herbs, lime-flower and honey. The palate is round and supple but nicely balanced with firm acidity, showing green apple, dried pear, stone and honeyed citrus and minerals that continue in the long finish. A simply delicious dry Chenin that will accompany seafood, grilled or in sauce, chicken, goat cheeses, etc... DL

Grange aux Belles 2018 Vin de France "53" Cabernet Franc

From old vines of Cabernet Franc on schist, most planted in 1953, de-stemmed, short fermentation with no extraction, bottled with minimal or zero SO2. The 2018 "53" shows a bright, deep red/purple color with lovely, very pure aromas of cassis and black raspberry with rose and a hint of spice, really lush and pretty. The palate is supple, round and ripe with dense cassis and berry fruit backed by firm acidity. The alcohol is a bit high, at 14%, but there is nice freshness to the wine and the fruit is extraordinarily pretty. Yum, serve cool and enjoy!! David Lillie

Grange aux Belles 2018 Vin de France Brise d'Aunis (Liter)

We are big fans of Pineau D'Aunis, an ancient Loire grape varietal, for the light, earth-driven red wines it creates. This example from La Grange aux Belles is made organically, with low added sulfur. Semi-carbonic maceration for one week with destemmed grapes, and then aging for 6 months. On the nose is an array of savory dried leaves, white pepper and wild cherry, and on the palate plenty of juicy red forest fruits. There's enough structure here to hold up to a roasted chicken or something gamey, but light enough to chill and bring to a rooftop BBQ. Because the yields were quite high, this vintage is bottled by the liter, so more bang for your buck!   ~MD

Guion 2014 Bourgueil Deux Monts

From  80 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 elevage ; 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.  Tasted in February 2016, the wine was fairly closed and tight, with deep, pure black fruits and perfect balance. This will be a sensational mature wine, best to wait eight to ten years, or more, then drink until 2040.

Guion 2018 Bourgueil Rosé

The 2018 Bourgueils of Stephane Guion, tasted in early February 2019, are just extraordinary, with an extra layer of vibrant fruit, beginning with this gorgeous Rosé. 50 years of organic farming and great traditional winemaking give this refreshing wine its perfect balance with beautiful fruit and great earthy expression of the limestone/clay terroir. The wine shows lush strawberry/raspberry aromas with citrus, rose and earth. Raspberry, blood orange, melon and earthy flavors on the ripe but dry palate which is framed in firm acidity and saline minerals. This is a real rosé of terroir, and for lovers of Cabernet Franc it's one of the greatest values around - drinking beautifully now and through 2020, with burgers, roast chicken, grilled pork and charcuterie.

Hureau 2014 Saumur-Champigny Cuvée Lisagathe

Certified organic since 2007, the Chateau du Hureau produces this beautiful Cabernet Franc on it's best parcel, "la Corde," from vines planted in 1953 and 1991 in clay soils over the "tuffe" limestone. This 2014 bottling of "Lisagathe"is a reminder for why we love Cabernet Franc from Saumur. The aromas show attractive notes of red cherry, tobacco, dried rose, and blueberries. The palate is supple with deft tannins. Pure flavors of cherry and tobacco spice are lifted by tart red currant and blackberry on the finish. This wine has a long life ahead but is wonderfully complex and elegant in its youth. This paired exceptionally well with fresh pork sausages with herbs, leeks, and asparagus. Amanda Bowman

This is a beautiful Gamay from the talented Noella Morantin, who acquired part of the Clos Roche Blanche vineyard and other parcels above the Cher River in Pouillé, Touraine. The 2018 Boudinerie is vinified in carbonic maceration, and shows lovely aromas of morello cherry, black raspberry and violet, quite ripe and pretty. The palate is lush, lively and bright, with nice density and length showing ripe, sappy red fruits, earth and mineral flavors that continue in the refreshing finish. This is a very pretty and versatile wine that will accompany charcuterie, chicken and pork dishes and mild cheeses. Serve cool and enjoy!  David Lillie

Pépière 2015 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Gorges

We're exstatic to have this superb new Muscadet from Pépière. The product of an exchange of juice with Fred Lailler at Domaine Bregeon (pressed at Bregeon), the wine undergoes a slow fermentation and is then aged 42 months on the lees. Marc Ollivier considers this his favorite of his bottlings right now, along with the Château-Thébaud. From Bregeon's vines on Gabbro with clay topsoils  (in conversion to organic) the 2015 Gorges is a complex, dense and beautifully structured wine, with unique aromas showing almond, smoke and petrol notes in addition to stone, pear, quince and mushroom. The palate is dense and intensely mineral with ripe pear and quince, earth, almond, anise and citrus notes, with stone, lemon peel and white fruits lingering in the very long finish. Although vibrant and delicious now, we would recommend waiting for eight to ten years before opening for peak enjoyment. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

Pinon 2017 Vouvray Les Déronnières

The grapes for this new cuvée from Francois Pinon used to be included in the Silex Noir, but this wonderful vineyard, the Pinon's best parcel on a hill-top directly above their cellar, much deserves to be bottled on its own.  The soil is clay over Turonian limestone, and the beautiful exposure gives ripe fruit that is normally vinified as a demi-sec. In 2017 the potential alcohol was not too high, so the Pinons vinified it as a dry wine, with  5.6 grams rs/liter. The wine shows elegant aromas of lime-flower, dried pear, lemon zest and stones. The palate is very saline and mineral with round white fruits, citrus and herbal notes with impressive density and length. A great dry Vouvray with fantastic minerality that will age beautifully!  Normally thought of as a fish wine, the flavors and texture of this wine will make it pair beautifully with poultry and white meats as well.  Highly recommended.  David Lillie

Pinon, François 2015 Vouvray Brut Non-Dosé

François and Julien Pinon make some of the finest sparkling wines in the Loire Valley. The superb Brut Non-Dosé comes from 45 year-old Chenin Blanc vines on Turonien limestone with topsoils of clay with silex. The fermentation lasts 4 to 6 weeks without added yeast or sugar. 2015 is a beautiful year for this wine as the good weight and density of the vintage are balanced by firm acidity, contributing to the elegance and structure of this cuvée. The wine shows aromas of citrus peel, pear, green apple brioche, fines herbes, white flowers and stone, really quite elegant. The palate is creamy and dense, with pear, parsnip(?), stone, anise, mineral, herbal and bitter lemon flavors on the palate. (Sorry for the overwrought description, but the wine is extraodinary!) The mousse is fine and refreshing and there is fabulous length of white fruits and stone flavors lingering in the finish. This very young wine is superb now but is a great candidate for extended aging - for twenty years or more - a few years ago we tasted a 1976  Pinon Brut that was sensational!  This is very highy recommended!

"La Porte Dorée" is from 40 to 90 year-old Romorantin vines grown on clay soils with limestone bedrock. The juice undergoes a long, slow alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation, and the wine ages in old foudres and barriques. Minimal SO2 is added before bottling.  This is a very young wine that will benefit from decanting or 3 to 10 years of cellaring. Serve now with fish or chicken in a cream sauce and with a wide variety of full-flavored cheeses. Lovely wine!

Tessier 2018 Cheverny Rosé (Pinot Noir, Gamay)

Always a treat, this year's iteration of the Tessier rosé is a bit darker than the 2017, which was all Pineau D'Aunis. This time around, it's a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir, with more concentrated fruit than the pale and subtle 2017, but the essential backbone of minerality and fresh acidity is there. Flavors of Ocean Spray Cranberry, and a bit of hibiscus, and wet stones. With fried, grilled and otherwise salty foods, this should be perfect!

The 2018 Rouillon shows bright, floral tart plum, raspberry and wild strawberry aromas with citrus and earth. The palate is ripe and sappy with wild strawberry, plum skin, earth and spice. The finish is long with citrus and mineral flavors and a bit of tannin. Irresistible now, this should be very interesting after a few years in the cellar. Zero or minimal SO2. David Lillie

Venier 2018 Cheverny "Le Clos des Carteries"

The cherubic Christian Venier is a cousin of the Puzelat brothers from Clos du Tue Boeuf, and like them, an early proponent of making wines the old fashioned way, without additives or manipulation.  His parcels are meticulously tended, and the wines of the Venier family always have a special vibrancy that I can only ascribe to the magic of the place (or maybe the wild yeast populations in the parcels or cellar). Clos de Carteries is all Gamay in 2018, from roughly 20 year old vines on clay and limestone with sand and silex. Whole cluster fermentation in open vats for 20 days, followed by 6 months in tank. Violet and floral notes on the nose, great concentration, with subtle peppery notes, and a very graceful finish. It's drinking nicely now, which is a treat, as the Venier reds often need a bit of time in bottle to harmonize after arriving to New York.    ~Eben Lillie

Verdier-Logel 2018 Côtes du Forez Cuvée des Gourmets

The Verdier-Logel "les Gourmets" is from the estates oldest Gamay vines, grown on granite terroirs on the slopes of the Massif Centrale, west of Lyon near the upper reaches of the Loire river.  Odile Verdier on 2018: "The very hot and dry month of August posed a real test to achieving proper maturation of the grapes. In the end,  in reward for attentive and hard work in the vineyards, the harvest resulted in very good quality and quantity, Nature gave us a lovely 2018 vintage." Ten-day whole-cluster semi-carbonic vinification. The wine shows a lovely deep red/purple color with ripe aromas of crushed raspberry and red currant, with hints of rose, spice and citrus - ripe but quite bright and fresh. The palate is round and pretty with the berry fruits backed by a nice earthy/mineral character that continues in the refreshing finish. Serve this delicious Gamay a bit cool with roast chicken, grilled meats and mountain cheeses.  David Lillie

The palate is round and ripe with dense black raspberry and blackberry fruit with plum, earth and mineral flavors that are lifted by firm acidity. This is a beautiful Gamay to drink over the next three to five years, served cool, with saucissons,  terrines, pot au feu, chicken stew, meats in sauce and mountain cheeses.  David Lillie

Laguerre 2018 Côtes du Roussillon Eos Rouge

Eric Laguerre's "Eos Rouge" is an elegant blend of 80% Grenache from 40-year-old gobelet-trained vines, with some Carignan and Syrah from soils of decomposed granite, gneiss, and some veins of quartz. Like "Le Passage," the grapes are fermented in fiber tanks with native yeasts for about two weeks, then aged in concrete. The beautiful 2018 shows bright aromas of cherry, strawberry and black raspberry with hints of blueberry and musk from the Syrah, quite pretty and pure. The palate shows a potpourri of ripe red and black fruits, with earth, cocoa and spice in a refreshing frame of cool acidity and mineral flavors.  The high altitude and the primarily granite soils give Eric's wines a bright and vibrant character that makes them great pairings with a wide variety of foods - we loved it with a grilled burger from grass-fed beef, but grilled pork and chicken would be great as well.  This is one of the best values in the store and perfect with summer menus - thanks to Eric and Corinne Laguerre for thier great organic farming and delicious, affordable wines!

100% Malbec from the South-West of France (the wine is Vin de France, but it's technically Cahors). Charlotte and Louis Perot are off to a great start with their young domaine, L'Ostal. This is an elegant, dark expression, with freshness and honesty. A very pure, natural wine, that should develop nicely with another 5 or so years in the bottle, or over the course of the night if opened soon. Proof that not every natural red is a juicy, light, glou glou wine. It's just as possible to have a dark, savory and supple red, as long as the vineyards are yielding high quality fruit, and the winemakers are careful with maintaining good acidity.   Eben

Laure and Julien approach wine-making from an agro-ecological and biodynamic standpoint: they have over 50 acres of biodiverse farmland, practice minimal intervention, and sulfur is never added in the bottle process. The cuvee “Acceptation” is a blend of Cinsault and Carignan. The 2018 vintage is a ripe, intensely aromatic one. Flowers perfume and fresh fruit dominate the nose. The palate shows pinpointed acidity along with a sour cherry profile. Pair with escargot if you can (the best friend to Cinsault) or a braised lamb dinner.  John David Crosby

Monts et Merveilles 2015 Vin de France En Marge (Syrah No SO2)

"En Marge" is from a high-elevation vineyard of that name on limestone soils in Camplong, in the Haut-Minervois, 100% Syrah. The wine was aged for three years in old barrels and vat and was vinified and bottled with zero SO2. The 2015 shows a deep garnet color in the glass and offers classic aromas of black pepper, funk, and blue fruits with more complex aromas of dusty minerals,  dark chocolate, and fennel. Well-knit tannins give a silken texture to the rich and supple palate while flavors of ripe blue fruit, sarsaparilla, and dried herbs emerge on the finish. A terrific natural wine for the table alongside grilled meats or mildly spiced Indian dishes. Amanda Bowman

Monts et Merveilles 2017 Vin de France Alchimie

The 2017 "Alchimie" is a direct-press rosé of Syrah grown in a high-altitude parcel with limestone soils in Camplong, above Félines-Minervois. This is a robust, natural rosé that has some structure and serious depth: a tiny amount of residual sugar adds body and versatility with food. "Alchimie" combines notes of ripe red cherry and raspberry with complementary savory earthy character and limestone minerality. Try this wine chilled with spicy Mediterranean and Asian dishes, like Moroccan tagine, chicken or pork shawarma, or even a Thai curry. Ben Fletcher

Monts et Merveilles 2018 Vin de France Haiku

"Haiku" is a blend of mostly old vines of Carignan with a small amount of Grenache, grown on limestone soils in  the Haut-Minervois near Cassagnoles. The 2018 deftly condenses all of the ripeness from the warm growing season into a plush offering of succulent red fruit with soft velvet tannins underscored by bright citrus acidity. There is a rustic character to the aromas: worn leather, game, and some funk mingled with earthy spice and hearty mountain herbs. This is a bottle that is charming for its simplicity, but we expect it will gain complexity with 2-3 years in the cellar. Serve cool if drinking now and try pairing with charcuterie, sheep and goat's cheeses, or tagines.  Amanda Bowman

Renardat-Fache 2018 Bugey Cerdon Méthode Ancestrale

Our favorite blend of sparkling Gamay and Poulsard is back in stock for the holidays! This charming, low-alcohol sparkler hails from the tiny appellation of Bugey (across the Mont du Chat in Savoie). At 8% this delicately sweet pét-nat is the breakfast of champions, companion while you prepare a feast, or the perfect solution to tricky dessert parings. The wine pours a pleasing shade of magenta in the glass and offers up vivid aromas of purple wild flowers, raspberry patch, and mouth-watering grapefruit zest. The palate is light and fresh with flavors of sweet strawberries, raspberries and crunchy blueberries on the attack then finishes with thirst-quenching mineral acidity. A purely enjoyable bottle at a great value. Serve chilled alongside fruit tarts, dark chocolate, or with tangy cheeses. Amanda Bowman

Tinou (Serge Hondet) 2014 Jurançon Cuvee Tradition

The 2014 Domaine Tinou Jurançon Cuvée Tradition is made from Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng, grown in Serge Hondet's beautiful vineyard near Lasseube, certified organic since 1964. The soils are essentially sandy clays with stones and gravels from the Pyrenees, over the local limestone, "Calcaire de Lasseube." The wine shows lovely pale gold color, vivid aromas of lemon, pineapple, honeysuckle, stone and brown spice, elegant and subtle. Creamy lemon, pear and stone flavors on the palate, balanced by citrusy acids. 62 grams of RS per liter, but seems dryer. Lovely finish of lemon, exotic fruit and minerals. Serve this lovely wine with foie gras, patés, full-flavored cheeses and lemony desserts or just sip by itself. Highly recommended. Don't worry about the low price - this is a sensational dessert wine that will really please a crowd on Thanksgiving!

Tissot NV Cremant du Jura Rose

The Crémant rosé from Stéphane Tissot’s biodynamic estate in Arbois is fantastically refined, structured, and fully-dry. This is a blend of directly-pressed Pinot Noir, Trousseau, and a bit of Poulsard. The robe shows a vibrant pink hue with orange flecks in the glass. The nose offers aromas of crushed raspberries, delicate quince, orange blossom, and ripe strawberries. The palate is lush and fruit-forward, yet dry with a fine mousse, minerals, and subtle notes of brown spice. We love this sparkler for its ability to strike a perfect balance between complexity and easy enjoyment. This is unequivocally the Champagne of beers of Crémant. Amanda Bowman

Ausonia 2015 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane Anfora

Ausonia’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Anfora is made using an ancient method of fermenting and storing wine in clay vessel (or amphora) which originated in Georgia and was used by the Greeks and Romans for centuries. The amphora helps protect the wine from oxidation and gives the wine a tannic and earthy, yet mineral-driven character.  Ruby red in color, this Montepulciano has an intense aroma of red fruits, sweet spices, dried flowers and turned earth. The palate is full-bodied and complex with a dense core, lush tannins, bright acidity, and flavors of ripe cherry, raspberry compote, dark chocolate, dried violets and a distinct minerality. The finish is long and earthy and full of licorice and herbal notes. This wine would make an excellent complement to hearty dishes, red meats, roasted vegetables, and grilled mushrooms. Anna DeBeer

Saetti, Vigneto 2018 Lambrusco dell'Emilia IGP Rosso Viola

Luciano Saetti produces this lively Lambrusco, vinified completely without additives including SO2. It has a deep ruby color with a nose redolent of brambly red berries, dried violets, delicate hints of sweet spices, and a slight meaty tone. The wine is more frothy than it is fully sparkling, with a velvety texture cut by bright acidity with a slight tannic bite. On its own, it shows more overtly floral and quite juicy but, as a good Lambrusco should, it shines with food. Try it with charcuterie, pasta bolognese, pepperoni pizza, or as a match to any rich dish (burgers!).

Forthave Spirits Amaro Marseille 375ml

The Forthave Marseille Amaro is truly unique affair. Based on a medieval recipe of four thieves who, as the story goes, traded their secret concoction for clemency. It is at once soft and assertive. Eucalyptus, mint, cinnamon, dried lemon peel, dried tea leaves, and honey dominate the nose, while the palate further reveals star anise, lemon extract, a touch of vanilla, and cloves. Marseille uses raw honey as a sweetener, and similar to something like Amaro dell'Erborista by Varnelli, it gives it a wonderful, soft and lush texture. Perfect as an after dinner digestif.

Antonio Lopes Ribeiro 2017 (Casa de Mouraz) Vinho Verde "Biotite"

From the lovely couple at Casa de Mouraz, Biotite is mostly Loureiro (with 10% Arinto) from certified organic vineyards in the Vinho Verde region, grown on granitic soils in the valley of the Lima River. This is a lovely mineral driven white, and a real eyeopener to the potential of the Vinho Verde wines. Most people just know the spritzy low alcohol whites (from early harvested usually under-ripe grapes), but this is a real wine, made from mature fruit and allowed to ferment naturally for a different kind of expression. Enjoy on its own on a sunny afternoon or with seafood, chicken, vegetables, sushi, salads, and cheeses. Stone fruit, salinity, and good concentration on the mid-palate. 2017 is really a fantastic vintage for this wine!    ~Eben Lillie

Part of his efforts in the Douro to study the various types of schist, the Xisto Ilimitado is an entry level red blend of Touriga Franca, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Rufete, Tinta Barroca, and 5% Malvasia Preta and Deonzelinho Tinto. Nice blackberry fruit, with subtle tannins and a soft finish. Earthy, but elegant.   ~Eben Lillie

Tiago Teles 2016 Bairrada Gilda

70% Castelão Frances, 25% Alfrochiero, and 5% Merlot from the unforgettable Tiago Teles, in the Bairrada DO of Portugal. Tiago is in spirit and practice aligned with what some call the "natural wine" movement. Fermentation is always with indigenous yeast, with minimal addition of sulfur, and very little extraction, new oak, or any other modern techniques. He's enthusiastic about Portugal's history and the future of winemaking in this small but important country. The Gilda is medium bodied, with great energy and acidity to keep it fresh. An exciting addition to our Portugese section! Total SO2 17mg/l (that's low!) Eben Lillie

Tiago Teles 2016 Bairrada Maria da Graça

This is 90% Alfrocheiro from young vines, and 10% Bical (a white grape), from clay-limestone soils. Grapes are foot stomped in 6000L lagars for about 10 days and then aging is for about a year, until the wine is bottles without fining or filtration. I tasted this wine several times in the last year or so, and I kept finding it a bit closed and tight. Not too tannic, but nonetheless structured and tough. Just yesterday (April 4th), Tiago came by to pour a few wines and say hello, and the Maria de Graca was singing! Now it was almost Burdundian in its elegance and finesse. The fruit was pronounced and more open, and the tannins were soft and integrated. Now that it's really opening up, it should be a great pleasure to drink for many years to come. Eben Lillie

A 1.5 ha parcel of about 50% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, sometimes with some Bourboulenc and Mourvèdre that averages just 35hL/ha annually.  Organically farmed and entirely harvested by hand with sorting done in the vineyard. The 2018 rosé shows a pale pink color and lovely aromas of raspberry, wild strawberry, rose and peach skin. The palate is silky and mineral with subtle raspberry and cherry fruit with stone and citrus flavors, quite long and elegant and finishing with refreshing acidity. This should open up nicely over the next few months and will be a great companion to seafood, chicken and grilled meats this summer. Lovely wine!

Graillot 2017 Crozes-Hermitage

After the lush and powerful 2015 and liltingly precise 2016 vintages how does this edition measure up? Perhaps less aromatic fireworks or textural flamboyance, but there’s a lovely and poised interplay of black fruits (more on the black currant and wild blackberry spectrum), Syrah gaminess, and garrigue (though with some cooling herbaceousness), fine-grained tannins, and a salty, savory mineral kick on the finish. And while I love the last pair of vintages, this has plenty of reserved charm and—dare I say—typicity. Drink now, I suppose, though it being Graillot, you could wait another 10 years. Re-buy? Even as the price goes up, this is still one of the greats in Crozes-Hermitage and whenever I taste an aged example, I kick myself for not buying more, way back when. John McIlwain

Kikusui Junnmai Ginjo 720ml

This is an incredibly easy-drinking hiya-oroshi! Notes of steamed rice, yellow blossom, cucumber water and honeydew melon intermingle with earthier tones of mushroom and dried flowers, with a slight lactic, yogurt-y presence. This hiya-oroshi is the lightest of the three, and is a great introduction to the style. Kikusui is produced in Niigata Prefecture, and the brewery has been in operation since the 1880s.

Midori-Kawa Honjozo Niigata "Green River" 720ml

Honjozo is sake made with a small amount of brewers alcohol added during the final stages of the fermentation process. The added alcohol extracts more flavor from the mash, yielding a more effusive character. Midorikawa is a distinctive brewery in Niigata Prefecture, deviating from the classic light-bodied and elegant sake typical of the region. Everything they produce spends at least a year resting before it's released, leading to a richer, more umami-driven beverage. Notes of apple, pear skin, and melon interweave with a delicate nuttiness and aroma of dried leaves and flowers. A beautiful honjozo! Oskar Kostecki

Mutemuka Shuzo Muroka Nama Genshu

Mutemuka Shuzo is located in the mountains of Kochi Prefecture on the southern shore of Shikoku Island, close to the source of Shimanto-gawa, known as Japan's "purest" river on account of its remote location and lack of dams or other obstacles. Established in 1893, Mutemuka has been an early pioneer of organic rice farming, and for the past few generations has been crafting bold expressions of sake. This junmai nama genshu (unpasteurized and undiluted) is a knockout. Laden with bold umami flavors, this explodes on the palate with notes of grass, hazelnut, cocoa nibs, parsnip, dried apricot, raw honey, citrus peel,  and a slightly lactic quality. Due to the slightly higher alcohol (18%) is has a very rich mouthfeel and feels vibrant on the palate. Pair with roasted meats and vegetables (it was particularly good with pork), mushroom risotto, hearty udon, and other savory, umami-laden dishes. Oskar Kostecki

Bunnahabhain Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 Year 750ml

Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay that specializes in mostly unpeated or very lightly peated whiskies. On the other hand, they are masters of sherry cask aging, and the dried fruit, toffee and baking spice quality of this malt integrates perfectly with its coastal, slightly saline character. Terrific value for a Scotch single malt of this age and quality. Oskar Kostecki

This bottle is a vatting of three, four and five year old whiskies, with meticulous barrel selection giving the scotch a more mature profile than one may think.  JR

This light bodied, dry, crisp rose is a testament to the Ameztoi family's long history of producing txakoli in Getaria.  This rose is made from Hondarribi Beltza and Hondarribi Zuri grapes, grown on sand and clay soils and fermented in steel tanks with indigenous yeast. The 2018 is classic Ameztoi, showing red currant, rhubarb, and watermelon notes. A little residual carbonic gas at bottling gives this wine some fresh spritz, and the transportative salty streak makes us misty for San Sebastian! Perfect for a warm summer afternoon with friends!

For fans of Montsant and Priorat reds, this should be a hit.   ~Eben Lillie

Her Negramoll vines come from vineyards in both the fertile north of La Palma island at very high altitudes (up to 1400 meters), and in the warmer, lower southern zones, which combine for an alluring, layered fruit profile. Partially fermented with whole clusters (about 30%), vinified in American oak, old chestnut barrels and tank—and then blended. Élèvage is in 600L French barrels. The 2017 is a little brighter than the previous vintage, fresh and very approachable.

From a single vineyard of granitic sand, this is a flavorful, medium-bodied red. A blend of Syrah, Merlot, Garnatxa, and Sumoll, from teenage vines. The Merlot is typically direct press, and the other grapes all whole cluster, with about a week of maceration. No filtration or clarification and no sulfites added. This is a very tasty, meaty red, that could be served with a slight chill. Not particularly tannic, but nonetheless bold, gaining finesse with a bit of time open.   Eben Lillie

Tapatio Blanco 110 Tequila

Fabrica La Alteña, located in the "Golden Triangle of Tequila," in the highland town of Arandas, has been crafting some of the most interesting tequilas for close to a hundred years. As one of their most cherished brands, Tapatio has been extremely popular in Mexico, but only recently available in the United States. Made using very traditional methods, the agave is crushed by tahona, with distillation in copper alembic stills, distilling not just the juice but also the fiber of the agave. Tapatio has a rich flavor and definite presence on the palate. The 110 proof intrigued us as being one of very few over-proof tequilas on the market. The nose leads with eucalyptus, mint, chalk, rainwater and honeysuckle. The palate is intense in flavor, but drinks  more smoothly than its proof would have you believe. The herbaceousness of the nose  follows through on the palate, more eucalyptus, tea tree oil, aloe. Notes of melon rind and raw honey, a viscous, oily texture and very long finish. With a few drops of water more sweetness emerges, along with citrus zest. We don't hesitate drinking this neat, but it also makes one of the best Paloma cocktails we've ever had. Oskar Kostecki

Great as a sipper, this finds a perfect home in cocktails,from Margaritas and Palomas to a Tequila Old-Fashioned. Oskar Kostecki

Division 2018 Gamay Les Petits Fers

By now Beaujolais is no longer the sommelier's best kept secret, but what you might not have known yet is that gamay also does really well in Oregon! "Les Petits Fers" is 100% gamay sourced from a selection of vineyards in Umpqua and Eola-Amity Hills of the Willamette Valley. The cool coastal winds keep these grapes fresh and bright, and the volcanic clay soils adds depth to this wine. Each vineyard's fruit is fermented separately with most going through full or partial carbonic maceration and then aged partly in cement, puncheons, and stainless steel to create balance. The nose is blend of fresh and dried raspberry, rooibos tea, and violets, and the palate shows some savory notes of dried herbs, and red apple skins. This wine is great with a bit of a chill to enjoy on its own, or try it with lighter proteins and a fruit-based sauce. MD

Holden 2016 Willamette Valley Vermentino

Sterling Whitted proves again that he is a winemaker to watch with this sublime 2016 Vermentino from Applegate Valley, Oregon. Whitted sources grapes from 40-year-old vines planted in red volcanic soils at 1,600ft above sea level in the historical Layne Vineyard in southern Oregon. After the fruit is pressed it spends 18 months on its lees with no battonage and only minimal sulfur at bottling. The front label looks like a scene from a Bruce Brown documentary; which at first feels like slapping a Roxy decal on a Porsche, until the second sip floods the mind with images of athletic surfers gliding on Perfect Waves. The 2016 offers vivid coastal aromas of surf and salty seashells mixed with mountain herbs and anise. The palate is creamy from the extended time on the lees and shows ripe tropical fruit that surges over a long, stony finish. This bottle will pair beautifully with a number of delicious seafood dishes, recently it awed with a boiled lobster salad with fresh tomatoes and onions. Amanda Bowman

Couvreur, Michel Overaged Malt Whisky over 12 years old

Before he passed away in 2013, Michel Couvreur was undoubtedly one of the most interesting and inventive of independent whiskey bottlers. Along with experimental cask regimes that included everything from ex-Calvados to ex-Jura Vin Jaune barrels, Mr. Couvreur was a specialist of the sherry cask, travelling extensively throughout Andalucia sourcing the very best butts to age his purchased Scotch. The Overaged 12 Year is a perfect example of that, a heavily sherried malt with an approachable price-point. Chewy and viscous on the palate due to its complete lack of filtration, it has notes of raisins, sultana, fruit cake, dried candied fruit, and leather. Perfect for a cold Christmas evening.

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 750mL

The words of Mark Twain still ring true in 2017: "Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough." Our seasonal single cask collaboration with Wigle from Pittsburgh is finally here! Wigle makes a wonderfully spicy and earthy rye whiskey, and this year's expression is no different. Gingerbread and candied orange dominate the nose, while the warming palate of this nearly cask-strength whiskey leads to more savory notes of nutmeg, clove, cedar and white pepper. This is perfect for sipping neat, but I wouldn't hesitate letting it loose in a  Sazerac! Oskar Kostecki
