Frick 2017 Alsace Muscat Sec (Dry)

At the end of a wonderfully long, educational, and theatrical tasting last May with the Fricks, Pierre presented a simple Muscat sec, zero zero, with no sulfites and no residual sugar. What a pitch-perfect, electric wine! It's totally dry and downright rejuvenating. Pierre of course knew this and was relishing the slow motion of our minds being blown. With a smile, he told us they still had some if we were interested, so now we're sharing it with you! The nose is not spicy, but is in every way classic Muscat. Stony and fresh, with density and length. Eben Lillie

Laurent Barth 2016 Alsace Riesling Granite

This is a classic dry Riesling from Laurent Barth. It's approachable and very easy to drink, but also has emotion and depth, and will likely be a wine that one could keep for a while. 2015 was a hot year, so there's good ripeness here. Plenty of complexity and salinity with nice granitic character in the finish. Laurent uses the word "salivant" for this wine, which I take it has to do with salivating due to the minerality of the wine, but that's open to interpretation! Anyway, it's a fantastic dry Riesling and worth a try for any fan of the legendary grape, or any one new to the wines of Laurent Barth. -Eben Lillie

Schueller, Bruno 2016 Alsace Pinot Gris Reserve

From a vineyard of pure limestone, this is an elegant and relatively rich style for Pinot Gris. Bruno doesn't like rich Pinot Gris, and often prefers his basic Pinot Gris to the Reserve in the first 3 or 4 years after bottling, but he says in 5-6 years, the Reserve evolves into a really special wine.  Spicy tropical fruit on the nose mix with burnt orange and marmalade. The palate is rich but the limestone soils give the wine cut, and the dryness is evident in the finish. A wine for meditation, and considering Bruno's advice, a good one to age for a few years.   Eben Lillie

Schueller, Bruno 2016 Alsace Riesling Bildstoecklé

As far as I can tell, this is the one. People say Bruno's wines are different and transcend what anyone would possibly expect from Alsace. They say he's an iconoclast who follows his own path. This is certainly true, but I often taste with Bruno and simply find the wines to be amazing, pure and energizing, and great examples of what a really good natural wine can be. However, it is a bit of a singular experience to taste a full-on oxidative Riesling like the Bildstoeckle. The nose is reminiscent of Jura sous voile whites, and there's subtle stone fruit on the palate mingling with the oxidative notes. There's no copper or sulfur used in the vineyard - something that is really difficult to pull off save in particular micro-climates. The parcel is on what Bruno calls a "good spot" on top of a hill on limestone terroir, well aerated and with relatively poor soil. In any case, this is not a Riesling for everyone, but certainly recommended for fans of oxidative whites.  Eben Lillie

Borachio 2018 Adelaide Hills "Flat Out" Rose

“Flat Out” rosé is a snappy field blend of direct-press Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir over whole clusters of Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Savagnin from the organic Mount Compass vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. The wine is fermented in tank then bottled unfined and unfiltered with no sulfur added. The ruby-tinged 2018 shows bright aromas of ripe strawberry, pomegranate, and lime flower. At 11% it is refreshing and drinks more like a light red with bold flavors of watermelon, tangy citrus, and crunchy acidity on the finish. Serve chilled, no passport necessary for a virtual trip to the land of sunshine. Amanda Bowman

Borachio 2018 Adelaide Hills "Pash Rash" Pet Nat 1.5 L

“Pash Rash” is 100% direct-press Pinot Noir that was bottled during fermentation with 8 grams of residual sugar (and nothing else) to become a delicious pétillant naturel. The wine’s color of electric grapefruit juice beams through the haze of sediment like the noon sun through soft clouds. Aromas of lime and zesty grapefruit pith lead to similar flavors on the zippy, thirst-quenching palate. For the adventurous: the winemakers suggest adding Mezcal for a real g’day. Amanda Bowman

Koerner 2017 Clare Valley Vermentino 'Rolle'

From 10 year-old vines planted on the Terra Rossa soils of the Gullyview Vineyard. The grapes are hand-harvested, macerated on the skins for half a day, fermented with indigenous yeast, and aged in 2000 L foudre for six months. No fining or filtration with only a small amount of sulfur added at bottling. We loved the savory saltiness of this Corsican-inspired Vermentino. The aromas are delicately tropical with an enlivening zestiness that leaps from the glass. The palate is supple and creamy with fresh flavors of lemongrass, peach skins, and exotic fruit. The finish is long and ends on a high-toned, stone fruit note. Delicious and ready to drink now. Amanda Bowman

The Other Right 2017 Adelaide Hills Sellicks Hill "Unfurl" Shiraz

From the winemakers Alex Schulkin and Galit Shachaf: "We aren't easily moved by Shiraz, but this one is really moving. [Sellicks Hill] Vineyard that has never been sprayed with anything, not even copper or sulfur. Dry grown. Cracked soil and struggling vines yield grapes that are very sensitive to picking timing - we think we nailed that this year. Essentially, it is our best understanding of this vineyard. Velvety, juicy goodness. Very lush, pretty big, in the most gentle way. Friendly generosity, purity and peace of mind that will follow you to the bottom of the bottle."

Jurtschitsch NV (b 13) 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, antique pink in the glass, the nose is fragrant with roses, blueberries, and raspberries. On the palate juicy red berries mingle with stony and salty minerality. Cari Bernard

Coquelet 2016 Chiroubles Vieilles Vignes

The step-son of Georges Descombes, Damien has worked alongside him since early childhood. L earning everything from Descombes in the vines and shared cellar has instilled the same values in Damien's work ethic: organic viticulture, hand harvesting, native yeasts, zero intervention in the cellar and little if any sulfur at bottling. The 2016 Chiroubles VV is a beautiful wine showing bright aromas of ripe raspberry, morello chery, violet and citrus, really quite pretty. There is a lively mineral attack on the palate with earthy plum, cherry and raspberry fruit that is sappy, earthy and long. Quite lovely now, this should really sing after a few years of cellaring. Highly recommended! David Lillie

There is velvety strawberry and blackberry compote on the palate with rose, pomegranate, earth and citrus. The finish is long with lemony acidity, mineral flavors and pretty red fruits. This is a complex and beautifully balanced Regnié that is delicious now, with aeration, and it should be superb from 2020 to 2026+. Highly recommended.  David Lillie

Descombes, Georges 2015 Morgon Vieilles Vignes

The Descombes Morgon Vieilles Vignes is made from 60 to  100 year-old vines from numerous sites on granite soils; semi-carbonic fermentation then aging  6 - 8 months in Burgundy barrels and one year in bottle before release. Dense and dark, this wine has formidable concentration. Some nice floral notes on the nose, with some vegetable ash and herbal characteristics wrapped around the dense dark fruit core. Deep and intense blackberry compote character on the palate is supported by inky tannin. This is a full-blooded Beaujolais that will benefit from a decade in the cellar, though right now its incredibly concentrated dark fruit and raw power should be enticing to those who love their wine with youthful strength. An excellent companion to sweet and sour pork, peking duck, or veal marsala. Andrew Farquhar

Pignard 2014 Régnié

We are big fans of the 2014 vintage in Beaujolais and we were very happy to get another shipment of the lovely 2014 Regnié from Joëlle and Roland Pignard. (January 1st, 2018) The wine is opening up nicely with pretty aromas of ripe strawberry and black cherry mingling with earth, rose, truffle and brown spice. The palate has softened a bit with bright strawberry, cherry and red currant over the saline minerals and earth with citrus and herbal notes. The wine is subtle and perfectly balanced at 12% alcohol - a real Regnié of terroir that will continue to improve over the next few years. Delicous wine!  (Notes from August 2016 below)

The Pignards' Regnié is from 50 year-old vines on alluvial clay soils, always giving a well-structured wine. The 2014 shows subtle aromas of ripe red currant and strawberry, very floral and pure. The palate is less fruity, showing stone and mineral flavors with lighter raspberry/strawberry fruit, quite elegant, and finishing with stony acidity. This will need a few years to show at its best but is delicious now in its purity and restraint. Decant if drinking now, best probably 2019 - 2023.

The Pignard's Beaujolais-Villages is from a high-elevation parcel with 40 year-old vines in sandy clay over decomposed granite. There is a very short carbonic-maceration to preserve the fresh fruit and only a tiny addition of sulfur before the bottling. The 2016 is a subtle, elegant and well-structured Beaujolais, showing pretty aromas of raspberry, plum and tart cherry, with hints of violet, citrus and herbs. The palate shows firm acidity and saline mineral flavors, framing the blackberry and raspberry fruit, with hints of mint, spice and citrus. This is a real Beaujolais of terroir that is elegant and delicious now and will improve over the next few years.  David Lillie

Pignard 2016 Morgon Cuvee Tradition

The Pignard's Morgon Cuvée Tradition is simply superb in 2016. Good friends with Christian Ducroux, the Pignards practise similar methods of biodynamic farming and natural vinifications. Produced from steep hillside vineyards, the wine ferments naturally, with approximately 10mg of SO2 added and spends a year in vat followed by a year in old barriques. The 2016 vintage was a difficult one for the growers, resulting in low yields, but with a sunny late season that produced beautiful wines with pure fruit, light to medium body and firm acidity. The 2016 Morgon Tradition is a superb wine, sowing a deep red color and aromas of ripe morello cherry, strawberry and black raspberry liqueur, with violet, rose, orange peel and earth. There is berry liqueur on the palate which is dense and long but not heavy. It's well balanced and bright at 12.5 % alcohol, finishing with sappy black fruits, citrus and earth. Serve in it's vibrant youth with steak frites, charcuterie, coq au vin and cow cheeses. This will be worth cellaring, best perhaps 2022 - 2030. Highly recommended.  David Lillie

Séléné (Sylvere Trichard) 2017 Beaujolais-Villages

Sylvère Trichard makes "Séléné" wines from his family's 4 hectares of biodynamically-farmed Gamay situated in Blacé, a small village in Beaujolais. The wine goes through semi-carbonic maceration in concrete vats and spends some time in neutral barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered without any added sulfur. Though this is a village level cuvée, the 2017 is quite austere with supple tannins, dried red fruits, and a long mineral finish. The wine pours a deep red in the glass. Aromas of morello cherry, dried cranberry, earth, and allspice on the nose. The palate offers bold flavors of baked red apple, lush strawberry and raspberry notes supported by firm, earthy tannins. The finish is surprisingly bright and ends with a flourish of mineral acidity. A complex natural wine with enough substance to pair with hearty dishes such as pork or game served in rich sauces. This should also drink beautifully in 5 years. Amanda Bowman

Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) 2017 Côte de Brouilly

Jean-Paul Brun of Domaine des Terres Dorées has 2 parcels of 50 to 60 year-old vines on a steep section of Mont Brouilly with a south-east exposition at about 1,000 ft of altitude. The thin soil is almost entirely stones of granite with a high iron content. (A more interesting terroir than the thicker, damper soils of Brouilly.) This is a gorgeous wine! Lovely aromas of ripe blackberry and bright fruits such as boysenberry and red currant, very floral with violets, citrus, cocoa and earth. The palate is ripe  but balanced (at 12.5% alcohol) with very sappy black and red fruit liqueur with mineral salts and citrusy acids that linger in the lush finish. A beautiful Beaujolais for current drinking and over the next few years. Highly recommended!  David Lillie

The 2017 shows elegant pear, lemon, herbal and dried flower aromas, with pear, citrus and chalky mineral flavors on the palate. A bit less ripe than previous vintages, this really shows the terroir with crisp acidity, lovely white fruit, a hint of pineapple and oak and stony flavors in the finish. Really a lovely, balanced and food-friendly wine - serve with anything from oysters to grilled fish to roast chicken. David Lillie

Dupont NV Calvados du Pays d'Auge Vielle Reserve 750ml

The Dupont estate has been producing Calvados, cider, and cheese since it was founded in 1890. Their orchards are planted to thirteen varieties in chalky, marl-heavy soils and no pesticides or herbicides are used at any time. Their Vieille Reserve is a blend of twice-distilled Calvados, of which the youngest is 5 years old. It is aged in 50% new French oak barrels which lends a softer, more decadent spirit than one might expect from products similar in age. Juicy green apple, sea salt, and caramel (the soft chewy kind) abound on the nose with a touch of walnuts and cinnamon. The palate is also quite round and luscious with more caramel backed by baked apple, vanilla, black pepper, and tart tatin that lead into a salty, mineral-laden finish. A delicious Calvados for a great price! Tim Gagnon

Neversink Spirits New York Apple Brandy 375ml

This exquisitely clear apple brandy comes in one of the cutest printed packages in the store, but that shouldn’t be the only reason for you to buy it. The fact is that this is one of the most delicious ways to experience New York’s abundant apple crop’s flavors. The apples growing on Neversink’s organic farm were selected for their high acid and high tannic character (not great for eating, but essential to creating delicious ciders and spirits). The mash is then twice distilled which makes for a bright, delicate spirit that truly showcases the quality of the raw ingredients used. In Europe, brandies like this are enjoyed neat after dinner but current cocktail creators are experimenting with all sorts of uses: the most simple being a touch of sugar and a squeeze of citrus for an apple-infused take on a Sour.

Pellehaut 1989 Armagnac Ténarèze Ugni Blanc

This Armagnac shows a vibrant orange color with hints of caramel. Tastes mature, but even after 28 years in cask there is a grippy quality and some citrus-toned fruit. This is an excellent introduction to vintage Armagnac and a fabulous value.  John Rankin

Brooks, Anne Bavard 2016 Bourgogne La Combe Blanc (Organic)

Domaine Anne Bavard-Brooks is located in Puligny-Montrachet and has been organic and biodynamic since 2005. The "La Combe" vineyard is in the village of Puligny with 35 year-old vines on silt and clay soils over limestone, 200 cases made. The palate is round and dense with flavors of pear, fines-herbes, almond, citrus, honeysuckle, and brown spice. The finish is long and ripe with citrus and stone flavors that linger. This is a quite complex and well-balanced Burgundy that will accompany a wide variety of seafood and poultry dishes and mild cheeses. Drinking beautifully now, this will cellar nicely over the next 5 years or more.

Chevrot 2014 Bourgogne Aligote "Tilleuls"

From a .35 HA parcel of organically farmed 51-year-old vines just opposite of the property. The 2014 Domaine Chevrot Bougogne Tilleuls is a lovely old vine expression of Aligoté. The plot is farmed organically with the soils worked by horse, the fermentation and aging is in barrel with native yeasts. An Aligoté to cellar, the wine is coiled and nervy with citrus and herbal notes leading on the nose followed by hints of sea spray. The palate is densely mineral and textured with stony acidity and bright Meyer lemon fruit on the attack and a long richly earthy finish. This is lovely and will age beautifully as well as pair with denser fish such as halibut or better still, some sea scallops from Blue Moon Fish with braised greens, citrus segments,  brown butter, capers.  -John McIlwain

Collet, Romain 2016 Chablis Les Pargues

The road of minerality is (often) paved with Kimmeridgian limestone. White flowers, sea spray, wet stone, quinine, lemon pith on nose. Salt, citrus, green tea, and nearly kinetic stoniness on the palate. Vibrant, energetic, incandescent, and lifted on the finish. Just the thing for a platter of oysters, sauteed flounder, or fresh goat cheeses. John McIlwain

Duplessis, Gérard 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains

The Montmains vineyard lies on the left bank of the Serein River a bit south of Vaillons. The 2015 has a ripe nose redolent of white flowers, orchard fruit, and citrus oil. The palate offers ripe golden apple, and Meyer lemon flavors underlain with subtle notes of sea spray and dusty minerality on a persistent finish. John McIlwain

Pernot 2016 Bourgogne Chardonnay

The wines from the Pernot family in Puligny-Montrachet are well-known throughout the world for classic Puligny and Bâtard style. They have rich concentration and fruit, but more importantly, good acidity that allow them to age gracefully and harmoniously. The Bourgogne Chardonnay is from vines in the village of Puligny and is an outstanding value in white Burgundy. The color is very pale steely gold, the wine shows lovely aromas of almond, pear, green apple, citrus skin and stone with a bit of lime-flower. The palate is dense but lean with elegant flavors of stone, almond and citrus with a bit of herbal honeysuckle in the end. The finish is very firm with bright mineral acids. This is a lovely junior Puligny that will accompany sole almondine, other fish in sauce, even oysters, and mild goat cheeses.

Pernot 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Garenne

White flowers, honeysuckle, lemon blossom, sweet pea, wet stone on the nose. Bright punchy, mineral, and precise on the palate with white stone fruit flavors and a racy, briny core of stone. Great balance and deft framing of oak lends a suave character to the long, nascently complex finish. Young, but tasty with some air, though it will become more compelling with a few years in the cellar. John McIlwain

Rontets 2014 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Birbettes

From vines dating from the 1920s and 1940s. Organically farmed, and vinified in used oak barrels. The 2014 is a beautiful expression of Pouilly-Fuissé fusing the bright minerality of the old vines with the sunny richness of the appellation. The robe is a green gold hue. The nose is redolent of stone fruit and citrus peel. The palate is racy on the attack, with a pungent stony character giving way to a supple ripeness building on a long, lingering finish. This is lovely and a great candidate for cellaring in the mid-term, say 8-10 years, though one could certainly tuck into a bottle earlier. John McIlwain

Filaine (Fabrice Gass) NV Damery Cuvée DMY

DMY (formerly Confidence) is the same cépages and blend as Filaine's Cuvée Speciale with an extra year on the lees and aged under cork, rather than capsule, lending a burnished character to the wine due to the slow ingress of oxygen. The current disgorgement is rich, broad, and sapid, with an impeccable balance between red fruits, citrus notes, and powerfully mineral structure and spice. John McIlwain

Godmé 2009 Champagne Brut Grand Cru Les Champs Saint Martin

Fine bead. Red fruit, spice, wet stone on the nose giving way to red apple skin, and orange blossom aromas. Palate is broad on the attack and somewhat rich, yet suffused with a bright, incisive minerality and a lean cut to the long, detailed, rising, finish. The tension between the deep-pitched red fruit flavors and sapid earth tones is exquisite--a Champagne for contemplation! Godmé’s parcellaires have real verve and depth and are not to be missed!  (0g/L dosage, disgorged 1/18) John McIlwain

Laherte Frères NV Champagne Brut Ultradition .375 ml

60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay that doesn't go through malolactic fermentation, along with 10% Pinot Noir. There is a delicate red fruit quality — pale plums — but otherwise the high-toned Chardonnay comes through with a delightful lemon tone. Earthy salinity and minerals lead to a dry, mouth-watering finish. A large percentage of Meunier gives this Champagne a broad, rich, earthy character that matches very well with Beau Soleil oysters and Caviar. MSB

Roses de Jeanne (Cedric Bouchard) 2016 base Champagne Blanc de Noirs Val de Vilaine

Formerly known as Infloresence, as of 2012 Val de Vilaine, this blanc de noirs comes from a south-facing 1.49ha plot of vines in Polisy planted in 1974 owned by Cédric's father. If there's such a thing as an 'entry level' Champagne in Bouchard's lineup, this is it. Historically more approachable when young than Bouchard's other wines, Val de Vilaine, is now more tightly wound and concentrated as the already small yields were nearly halved to 26hl/ha bringing it in line with the other cuvées of Roses de Jeanne. Here you'll find a classic expression of Polisy terroir. -John McIlwain

Boillot, Louis 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Brouillards

Bright tones, and moments. Limpid and ruby robe. Red flowers (hibiscus!) wild strawberry, griottes, beetroot and wet stone on the nose. Supple, finessed: roses, silken with sneaky structure to go with a world of stoniness. This is deeply mineral and pure and has the core to age effortlessly. This is a vibrant and lithe Brouillards. Decant now, better still in 5-10 years and beyond. John McIlwain

A wine of energy and lift rather than mass, this racy Bourgogne shows the buoyant nature of the difficult, but excellent 2016 vintage. Pablo Chevrot and his family make beautiful and fairly-priced Burgundy in every vintage, and are a great domaine for value.  Enjoy with roasted chicken, fricasséed mushrooms, tempura, or milder cheeses.

Des Croix 2016 Beaune 1er Cru

A selection from the  Les Grèves, Cents Vignes, Les Tuvilains and Bas de Teurons premier crus. 20% whole cluster. What a nose! Perfumed, sexy aromas of red and purple flowers, wild strawberry, cherry, perfectly ripe and bright. High-toned, and straight up exuberant. Leaps from the glass. Great ripeness and pure cherry, red plum, and wild strawberry flavors, intermingle with deep savory soil notes on the supple midweight palate. Great galloping drive and layers of complexity. Joyous and grounded. With kaleidoscopic detail to the long, lifted finish with a fine bit of that peacock’s tail. This is a beautiful Beaune and emotionally satisfying!  John McIlwain

Des Croix 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes

If Domaine des Croix's 2016 Beaune premier cru assemblage is bright and high-toned, the Bressandes is the earthier, richer counterpart. Again there’s that startling energy, though deeper-pitched and more soil-inflected than the premier cru. Dark floral notes, black fruits, and a touch of sauvage gaminess on the nose. Denser and darker fruit and spice, on the richer, broader palate, with a pure core of ferrous minerality that carries over on the long, detailed, sapid finish. Here’s the specificity, the punch, the structure. There’s a sophisticated, albeit sterner character here, but this is deeply satisfying and beautiful. I suppose more Bud Powell than Bill Evans, but immensely pleasurable. Great job in an admittedly difficult vintage. Domaine des Croix is worth a serious look in 2016. Decant now, or better still cellar for 7-10 years and beyond. Fantastic depth and purity and a sublime pairing with duck with wild mushrooms in a red wine sauce. John McIlwain

Audoin, Charles 2014 Marsannay Les Longeroies

I’ll always have a soft spot for Domaine Charles Audoin. And frankly I love Marsannay, though it’s no one’s favorite wine, it’s useful at the table. And while the availability of cool, albeit expensive Burgundy is a blessing/curse, it’s a pleasure to have this on the shelf. Medium ruby robe. Wild strawberry, wild cherry, hibiscus on the nose (red and ripely sweet) with a fine streak of earthiness keeping things honest. The palate (with a bit of time open) displays brambly red fruit flavors, wild cherry, raspberry seed, and hints of black tea on a racy, bright mid-palate, girded by a finely savory, mineral core, giving way to a lifted, punchy succulent finish. And while this is firmly Marsannay, there’s a fine level of sophistication and energy that makes it a fine choice for rustic foods (porc à la Dijonnaise and a cheese plate) as well as lending itself to a variety of charcuterie and cheeses This has the 2014 poise and balance that is criminally overshadowed by 2015s and is worthy of a look. Delicious! John McIlwain

Burguet, Alain 2015 Vosne-Romanée

Cherry, red plum, red currant, baking spices, and hibiscus on the nose. Good cut and tart fruit underlain by savory earthiness. Fine density on the palate and good lift on finish. With food, riper berry and floral notes emerge--what perfume! Lovely nascent complexity and real verve without the monolithic character of many 2015s. This is a punchy, satisfying Vosne-Romanée and while, not cheap, this is stylish and combines lilting aromatics with pure fruit and a fine sense of minerality. Decant now or cellar for 5-7 years to allow the structural elements to integrate. A fine paring with pork, mushrooms and spaetzle, and would shine with squab or magret of duck. John McIlwain

Magnien, Stephane 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis Vieilles Vignes

2016 is a superb vintage for Stéphane Magnien and in particular for this  first vintage of his new Morey-Saint-Denis "Vieilles Vignes," from  45 to 65 year-old vines in "Clos Slon" and "Cognes" on clay/limestone soils.  The wine shows deep, elegant blackberry and black cherry aromas, quite floral with mineral and meaty notes. The palate is ripe and dense with blackberry/cherry fruit with hints of earth, citrus and spice, pure, long and well-structured with firm tannins and chalky acidity. Excellent length of black fruits with stone and mineral flavors.  Decant to drink now with a nice steak, best to hold three to five years, drink till 2030+ as this will be a superb mature Burgundy.  David Lillie

Brand 2017 Pfalz Pet Nat Blanc 1.5 L

It's no secret, the wines of Daniel and Jonas Brand are getting better with every vintage and their pét-nats continue to be a solid go-to for pure drinking delight! I have blazed through many bottles since their arrival, and don't see myself stopping any time soon. France may take the credit for popularizing the style in the States, but pét-nats from Germany and Austria have been some of my favorite bubbly bottles to date! Their Pét-Nat Weiß comes from 30-year-old vines of Sylvaner and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and has no sulfur added, and has just a bit more ripeness this vintage, with notes of Fuji apple, lees, pineapple, green strawberry and mango, white cherries, and a creamy mousse. Cheers to a job well done! Cari Bernard

Barale 2011 Barolo Castellero

For us Barolo geeks, it’s interesting to note that Castellero is geographically related to the much more famous Cannubi vineyard which is just west of Castellero, across a little stream and its valley. Cannubi is on two sides of a ridge, with the best parts facing west and a bit north; all of Castellero faces west. The hill of Castellero is deceptive – until you start walking up, you don’t realize that it’s really very steep. The soils are white limestone, dusty when dry and glue-like when wet, but actually well drained and perfectly composed for growing Nebbiolo. Brezza makes Castellero, but Barale is the benchmark, and Castellero is their most important vineyard; it’s great that they are now farming organically, and the vineyard is more beautiful than ever.  I wouldn’t have the nerve to suggest that Castellero has ever produced wines as profound as the best Cannubi, but the Barale’s are certainly making higher quality wine than a number of the owners of Cannubi. The Barale’s are steadfast traditional winemakers, using very long fermentations and aging in used, giant wood barrels. Their wines are not flashy, but are refined and elegant, and they age forever. Like all proper Barolo, the Castellero is a tannic and high-acid wine, and no one in Piedmont (or anywhere else in Italy) would dream of drinking it without food. You will, we hope, at least have some cheese on hand, but the wine wants to be consumed at table with something equally special.

Brambly black cherry with undertones of black raisin and sweet dirt. Quite developed with secondary/tertiary notes of hoisin, dried mushroom, and dried meat.

I couldn't help but make the comparison initially to older Chianti, with flavors of dried red cherry and dried herbs. As the evening progressed, the wine became richer and weightier with darker fruit notes of black raspberry and brandied cherry with intensity similar to the blockbuster normale bottlings of 1971 and 1978.

La Staffa 2017 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico Superiore La Staffa

 La Staffa is an estate founded in 1994 by the Baldi family and has embraced biodynamic farming under the direction of Riccardo Baldi.  The 2017 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi is a beautiful example of the fresh and easy style of Verdicchio I love.  The wine is fermented in stainless steel, cold settled over the winter, and rested on lees only briefly before being bottled in the spring following the vintage. The nose shows crisp stone fruit and notes of clementines and almond flowers.  The palate is light and juicy, with tart white peaches, orange citrus and a dry, mineral finish. An easy match for fish it would also be suited to rich cheese, slightly bitter veggies like broccoli rabe, or served as a refreshing summer quaffer.  Andy Paynter

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2017 Vin de France Le Telquel

This "poil dur" is wagging its tail again in 2017, showing juicy aromas of blackberry, rose, spice and citrus. It's all Gamay in this vintage, with an extra layer of ripness, and nice density of bright blackberry fruit, a bit floral and spicy. Quite refreshing with good length of lush berry fruits and citrusy acids in the finish. Serve a bit cool with charcuterie, chicken and pork - just delicious!  David Lillie

Bonhomme, Pierre-Olivier 2017 Vin de France Vercheny

Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme and Thierry Puzelat used to co-helm a négociant project (aptly named Puzelat-Bonhomme) for a number of years until Thierry had to take on full responsibility of his family's estate, Clos du Tue-Bœuf. Luckily, Pierre-O was poised to take over the reins fully and continues to produce delectable wines from the Cheverny/Touraine region in the Loire. Pierre-O currently works ten hectares and still sources some fruit from trusted friends, also working organically. This vintage of the Vercheny (an anagram of Cheverny) is 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Gamay. 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 red fruits present on the nose, with fresh red cherries slowly evolving into cherry candy syrup as your nose lingers in the glass. This comes alongside initial notes of seaweed, raspberry seeds, and savory cheese rind. The wine is bright with acidity and a touch of structure framing juicy red raspberries, strawberies, cherries and tangy red apple skin on the lingering finish. Cari Bernard

Delmée-Martin 2016 Vin de France Ca Faye Douze

This is a very friendly Cab Franc from Philippe Delmee. The name takes the phrase "ca fait" (it takes/makes) and incorporates a reference to Philippe's home in Faye d'Anjou, a small commune in the Loire Valley that was recently merged into a new commune called Bellevigne-en-Layon. The "douze" (twelve) in "Ca Faye douze" is a reference to the alcohol (which is technically 12.5%).  Semi-carbonic maceration, and gently macerated at that - more of an infusion style without extraction or pressing. The result is a silky and juicy red that has an inviting vibrant color and tangy acidity, with very little tannin or grip. Drink with a chill. Pure juice!EL

50% Pinot Noir and 50% Grolleau grown by Alain and Christine Bore, the sixth generation on their organic estate in Anjou. This unusual blend of Pinot Noir and Grolleau is lovely and refreshing in 2017 showing bright aromas of ripe boysenberry and black Raspberry with citrus, black pepper and earth. The palate is supple and soft with cool black raspberry, black plum and cocoa, earth and mineral flavors. The finish is supple and ripe - serve cool with pork and chicken dishes or sip by itself.

It's probably our favorite vintage of the wine yet, as it's effortlessly drinkable, satisfying, chillable yet still dark with ripe black berry fruit, and with very elegant and integrated tannins.  EL

Hureau 2015 Saumur-Champigny Tuffe

The Chateau de Hureau Saumur-Champigny "Tuffe" comes from 15 parcels of old and young Cabernet Franc vines from different “terroirs," scattered around Saumur and Dampierre/Loire. The estate has been organic since 2009. Here the common denominator is the limestone bedrock "la tuffe" which can be found at anything from one foot to a couple of yards underneath the surface of clay. The 2017 is a very pretty wine with aromas of raspberry and strawberry that are quite floral and bright. The palate shows cool, supple red fruits backed by chalky acidity, nicely ripe and long in the finish. Serve cool with roast chicken, grilled meats and mild cheeses. David Lillie

Jousset, Lise et Bertrand 2017 Menetou-Salon Exilé Rouge

The Joussets have made a lovely natural Pinot Noir from Biodynamic fruit grown by Philippe Gilbert in Menetou-Salon - harvested, vinified and bottled by the Joussets. (40 year-old vines on kimmeridgian soils, zero added SO2) The wine shows a bright, clear dark red color, with aromas of ripe strawberry, black raspberry and violet, with a bit of cocoa and white pepper. There is ripe black raspberry and black cherry fruit on the palate, very fresh and bright with chalk and earthy flavors in the finish with lingering ripe fruits. This is a beautifully pure and delicious Pinot that is lovely now - serve cool with charcuterie and grilled chicken or pork. Aging for five to ten years might be very interesting. HIghly recommended!  David Lillie

Luneau-Papin 2017 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Terre de Pierre

This fascinating wine is from a new parcel of 40 year-old vines, La Butte de la Roche, high on a dome of igneous rock with quartz stones and serpentine minerals overlooking the marshes of Goulaine. The young Pierre-Marie Luneau is in charge here and is doing great vineyard work, reclaiming this wonderful site.This fascinating wine is from a relatively new parcel, La Butte de la Roche, high on a dome of igneous rock (serpentinite) with quartz stones overlooking the marshes of Goulaine. First produced in 2008 from vines planted in 1974 which are being tended by Pierre Luneau with organic methods. The serpentine rock creates a very poor soil, giving wines that are normally somewhat austere and marked by intense minerality. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with wild yeasts.  The 2017 "Terre de Pierre" is bright and crystalline with citrus aromas and hints of stone and dried herbs. The palate is elegant and crisp with saline acidity, with pear, almond and citrus flavors, and the terroir kicks in nicely with intense mineral notes and firm acidity that tingles the palate. The finish is long with subtle white fruits and minerals. Serve this lovely Muscadet now with shellfish, cod and sole or cellar a  few years and serve with monkfish, lobster and fish and chicken in sauce.  David Lillie

The wine shows ripe and floral aromas of pear, spiced apple, dried herbs, almond. The palate is chalky and full-bodied with ripe pear and quince, brown spice, fines herbes and minerals, with terrific length. This is a versatile food wine that will pair with richer fish dishes, chicken and pork and full-flavored cheeses. Delicious!

Pépière 2012 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Ch.Thébaud "Clos des Morines"

 The Domaine de la Pépière Château Thébaud "Clos des Morines" comes from old vines on a beautiful vineyard sloping down towards the river. The granite here is fissured and permeable by the vine roots which have access to water during dry spells and absorb micro-nutrients along the way. 2009 and 2010 here were among the best of the vintage in Muscadet and the 2012 is outstanding as well from this somewhat difficult low-yielding vintage. More austere than the previous vintages, the 2012 shows subtle aromas of dried pear, herbs, citrus, almond and stone, quite subtle and elegant. The palate has excellent weight and concentration with firm acidity, without the forward fruit of the 2009 - very tight and mineral in style with terrific length. Fabulous served now with oysters, ceviche of cod, flounder and sole, and grilled fish, This should age beautifully for 20 years and more. Highly recommended. Tasted again in December of 2016, this beautiful Muscadet is beginning to open up a bit, with lovely fruit appearing in the aromas and palate, really drinking well, though obviously a wine that will benefit from another five years of aging, best perhaps 2022 - 2030.

Pinon 2016 Vouvray "Le 16"

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

Raffault, Olga 1989 Chinon Les Picasses

1989, the first of two dry, sunny seasons, is the best vintage for Loire reds since 1947. With terrific ripeness, the wines also had firm acidities leading to beautiful balance and the ability to age for twenty to thirty years and more. We haven't tasted this wine recently but it remains our favorite vintage for "Les Picasses," with 1990, 1996, 1997, 2002, 2009 and 2010 following behind, though of course we like them all...

The Olga Raffault Chinon rosé has gotten better and better over the past few years, perhaps it's their move towards organic farming and the fine work of Sylvie Raffault and her husband Eric de la Vigerie. 100% Cabernet Franc, 10-hour maceration and slow wild-yeast fermentation. The 2017 shows a bit more ripeness than the 2016 but remains crisp and refreshing showing lovely bright pink color, hints of raspberry and strawberry fruit, very dry and balanced on the palate with a bit of peach and red berries in the finish with bright saline acidity. "Particulièrement gouleyant" it says on the label and we couldn't agree more! (Quantities are limited on this beautiful rosé - don't delay!)

Roche Bleue 2017 Coteaux du Loir La Guinguette

Sebastien Cornille's lovely "Guinguette" is made from a blend of 80% Pineau d’Aunis and 20% Gamay sourced from 30+-year-old vines in biodynamic farming. It undergoes semi-carbonic maceration for 20 days in tank before the Pineau d’Aunis is pressed off to be aged in neutral barrique and the Gamay in tank. The 2017 Guinguette is a superb "vin de soif" offering bright aromas of peppery raspberry, cranberry, tart cherry and violets. The palate shows light but sappy raspberry, plum and red currant fruit with hints of grapefruit, clove and wet stone. The finish is tart and refreshing. Serve this lovely wine slightly chilled with charcuterie, of course, grilled pork and lamb, bluefish (?) and mild cow cheeses.  David Lillie

Thomas-Labaille 2017 Sancerre Chavignol Les Monts Damnées

 Jean-Paul Labaille continues the great work of his father-in-law Claude Thomas, creating one of the finest Sancerres from vines in "les Monts Damnees," an incredibly steep-south facing hillside in Chavignol on Kimmeridgian limestone and red clay which is perhaps the best vineyard site in Sancerre.  The 2017 shows aromas of dried pear, flint, grapefruit skin, lime-flower, almond and stone. The palate shows firm acidity and flavors of grapefruit, pear and almond - refreshing and vibrant, the wine finishes beautifully with crystalline mineral flavors and lemony acids. Pair this with oysters, ceviche of sole, grilled fish and mild goat cheeses. Cellar for five to ten years and serve with fish in sauce, roast chicken with herbs... David Lillie

The wine shows vibrant aromas of fraises des bois and cherry liqueur with earth, mint and citrus. The palate is dense and sapid with bright blackberry and black cherry fruit, spice, earth and firm acidity. Impressive length with sappy black fruits, mineral flavors and refreshing acidity.

From south-facing slopes in Bouzeron, a village more famous for its excellent Aligoté.

The palate is similarly pure and fresh and lifted, with succulent, ripe red fruit flavors with a fine core of chalky minerality. This has plenty of energy and expressiveness to the finish. And while delicious now, this should evolve beautifully. John McIlwain

Beguet, Patrice 2017 VDF Go Together Red (Big Bunch Theory)

Completing the trifecta of wacky Loire X Jura wines that Patrice Beguet unleashed this year, Go Together is 90% Gamay from Ancenis, and 10 Savagnin from marnes bleues and marnes blanches (blue and white marl) soils in the Jura. Patrice says "the Gamay provides notes of blackberry jam, and the Savagnin adds aromatics," and we'd say a bit of spice and saltiness too. Ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit and subtle pomegranate tartness on the palate. It's juicy and fresh, but has some structure and verges on medium bodied, though the low alcohol and zippy acidity make it a prime candidate for a light chill. A touch of CO2 gas is still present, so let the wine breath for about 10 minutes and it will settle down (it's not as crazy as the Fresh Impression, Patrice's other Loire/Jura red). Carbon dioxide gas is created during fermentation and sometimes will be added to the top of a vat to protect it when a winemaker is trying to work without any added sulfites. It's not a fault or flaw, but can be confusing to a natural wine neophyte so do be aware that this wine may tickle!

Clos Fantine 2015 Faugères Cuvée Courtiol

Each year the Andrieu family chooses the best grapes of the vintage for their Cuvée Courtiol. In 2015 it's predominantly Mourvedre from bush-trained, 30 year-old vines grown on beautiful schist vineyards in Faugères. The grapes are hand-harvested into small crates, and as always, the fermentation is long and slow with indigenous yeasts then bottled with no fining, filtration or added SO2. Deep red/black color in the glass, like the "Tradition" the 2015 has less "sauvage" aromas than past vintages. Elegant notes of plum, cherry liqueur, violets and roasted herbs develop on the nose as the wine aerates. The palate shows dense blackberry fruit with hints of tart cherry, anise seed and bitter chocolate framed by firm, earthy tannins. This is a beautiful natural wine that the Andrieu family recommends holding for 5-10 years or decant two hours before drinking if you don't want to wait! Amanda Bowman

Combel La Serre 2015 Cahors Cuvee Chateau

100% Malbec (aka Auxerrois in local parlance). Combel's Château Cuvée comes from estate plots totalling 3 hectares around their home village of Cournou on the limestone plateau known as the Causse at about 320m altitude. The soils for this bottling are mainly red clay with some limestone rock. The organically farmed vines average 40 years old and are kept to a yield of 40 hl/ha.  Because of the clay-heavy terroir and winemaking and aging choices, the Château Cuvée marks a signficant step up in body, tannin and complexity compared to the lighter, softer Pur Fruit bottling. This is a beautiful Cahors showing elegant red and black fruit aromas - the palate is pure and focused with good acidity and bright black raspberry and red currant fruit, floral and long. Delicious now, this will develop nicely over the next five years or more.

Donneurs du Temps 2015 Arbois Chardonnay

From young Jura newcomer Guillaume Gilet, this is Chardonnay from organic vineyards that overlook the town of Arbois. Very fresh, with notes of lemon curd, cantelope, apples and herbs. Guillaume uses no SO2 during winemaking (sometimes bottling with none added) and tries to preserve some natural CO2 gas to protect his wines in the absence of SO2. This blows off within a few minutes, so decanters are not necessary. There's a driving mineral spice that shines through the finish, and an overall very clean and pure natural wine.    Eben Lillie

Laguerre 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Le Ciste Blanc

"Le Ciste" is named after a flowering bush that grows around the Laguerre's steep, organic vineyards in Saint-Martin de Fenouillet. The 2016 is made from equal parts Marsanne, Roussanne, Rolle (Vermentino), Grenache Blanc and a small addition of Macabeu. Each parcel is hand-harvested, the grapes are fermented separately with native yeasts and raised in used demi-muid. This superlative cuvée is a fascinating showcase of the Roussillon's mighty terrior. The acidic soils of decomposed granite give this wine excellent mineral tension that deepens with time in bottle. Aromas are intricately woven with notes of bright lemon oil, verbena, sage, and salty seashells. The palate is supple and round with generous flavors of pear, white flowers, thyme, and almond framed by pure mineral acidity. This is a fantastic wine that is delicouis now but will develop a beautiful honeyed texture and rich flavors after 5-10 years in bottle. Eric recommends pairing this with sardines on toast, goat cheeses, and roasted chicken. Amanda Bowman

Laguerre 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Eos Blanc

"Eos Blanc" is a rewarding discovery for anyone seeking an intriguing wine of terrioir at an affordable price.  Eric Laguerre's vineyards are planted at high-altitude in Saint-Martin de Fenouillet, where the acidic soils are composed of gneiss and broken-down granite with some pockets of quartz. This composition forms a sturdy backbone of dense minerality and abundant freshness to this "entry-level" cuvée -- a testament to Eric's excellent farming. The 2017 is made from direct press juice, aged in neutral demi-muid for about eight months with minimal added S02 before bottling. The wine shows pale gold in the glass and immediately charms with bright citrus aromas that evolve into notes of ripe pear, hazelnut, garrigue, and warm apricot skins on the palate. This was the first vintage that the Laguerres harvested in August due to the extreme heat in 2017. Despite this, the wine drinks pure and fresh with an invigorating mineral acidity that lingers on the herbal finish. A fantastic every day wine with potential to age 3-5 years, though we're  happily drinking this now with or without salad and goat cheeses. Amanda Bowman

Highly recommended!

Navarre 2016 Saint-Chinian Le Laouzil

Thierry Navarre's touchstone "Laouzil" is a blend of equal parts Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah from old vines planted on brown schist ("Laouzil" in the local dialect) soils in the rugged mountains of Roquebrun (Saint-Chinian). The grapes are de-stemmed and aged in neutral barrel before bottling with minimal sulfur. The robe is a lovely red/black in the glass. The wine shows seductive aromas of spiced plums, dried rosemary, and deeper notes of coffee and dry earth. The rich palate is bursting with black fruit flavors, peppercorn, and savory herbs with a structured texture of dense minerals and bright acidity on the long, persistent finish. This is a fascinating wine of terroir that Thierry says will be perfect in 5 years (though it is delicious now). Amanda Bowman

Le Strie 2014 Rosso di Valtellina

The Le Strie Rosso di Valtellina has a wonderful nose of raspberries, red and black cherries, red plum, rose, and crushed violets. The palate is precise, at once delicate and lifted, but also carrying intensity, with soft tannins and bright acidity. With a hint of earthiness, this wine worked beautifully with a mushroom risotto, but I wouldn't hesitate pairing it with a wide range of meals. Oskar Kostecki

Pranzegg 2012 Mitterberg Schiava / Vernatsch Campill

We love Schiava (also called Vernatsch in the Alto Adige, and  Trollinger in Germany and Austria) for its light and easy-drinking character. At the same time it reminds us of a hypothetical wild mountain cousin of Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir, hinting at a more important structure and complexity beneath the surface of pretty color and fruit. This one delivers much more –the result of great biodynamic fruit, and a long slow fermentation and maceration. It’s unmistakably Schiava, but there is a depth and complexity to the wine that we haven’t found elsewhere (excepting Nusserhof), and despite the typically light color of the wine, the delicious cranberry fruit, the cut and lift present, there is a core that suggests much more. You can have your fun and think about it too! Jamie Wolff

Cappelletti Elisir Novasalus Vino Amaro 16% 750ml

Disclaimer: This is an Amaro for adventurous drinkers! Beginning with a rich red wine base, the production process involves a 6-month infusion with local flowers, herbs, and roots and the only sweetener used is a local tree sap. This yields an intensely bitter and dark spirit with a piney, earthy finish. I find it to be incredibly compelling and energizing, especially after a gluttonous meal, but it isn’t for the faint of heart! Tim Gagnon

Terres Rouges Salers Apéritf La Bounoux 750ml

Salers is a fascinating elixir from the Massif Centrale. The bark of yellow gentian is steeped in alcohol with a secret recipe of other herbs to create an earthy beverage with tons of local character. Yellow gentian grows best at high elevation on volcanic soils, as is the case for gentian grown around the Auvergne and used here. Locally, Salers in enjoyed with ice as an apéritif, but there are many modern cocktail recipes that call for it as well. JR

Adega Regional de Colares 2014 Colares Arenae Malvasia (500 ml)

Malvasia de Colares is an aromatic white grape that delivers salinity and texture, with subtle petrol notes on the nose, and a long finish. The '14 from Adega Regional was great when tasted in February of 2018. Definitely a textbook Colares white that should age well for the next 10+ years.   EL

Antonio Lopes Ribeiro 2016 (Casa de Mouraz) Vinho Verde "Biotite"

From the lovely couple at Casa de Mouraz, Biotite is mostly Loureiro 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.

Ferme des Sept Lunes 2015 Saint-Joseph Chemin Faisant

Jean Delorbe makes beautiful natural wines in and around Saint-Joseph - The 2015 Chemin Faisant is from massale selection vines planted in 1975 by Jean's father, on decomposed granite soils in the northern sector of Saint-Joseph, above Saint-Desirat. Biodynamic farming, wild yeast fermentations, aging in old barrels, zero added sulfur. The wine shows ripe pure fruit liqueur aromas, blackberry and black raspberry, with hints of earth, stone and licorice. The palate is deep and supple with black fruits that are cool and lifted by bright acidity with a backing of earthy mineral flavors that carry through on the finish.  Northern Rhone syrah can be quite beautiful when vinified without sulfur dioxide and this a lovely example. Lovers of Gonon Saint-Joseph will appreciate the similar style of this natural wine - drink over the next ten years. Highly recommended. David Lillie

Ferme des Sept Lunes 2017 Vin de France Syrah

The delicious 2017 Ferme Sept Lunes Syrah is from high elevation vines, just above the Saint-Joseph appellation on granite soils, with only 10 mg/L of SO2 added befroe bottling. We love the review in "DrinkRhone" so we quote it here: "shiny dark red-purple colour. The bouquet has crunchy airs, smoky black fruits, shiny blackberry fruit. The palate holds fine, tenacious black fruits with good breeze, grip. There are violet notes also, tender pockets. This is hand made, true wine. Small tannins cluster on the close, the length. Good VALUE!" We heartily agree - this is a lovely natural wine to serve cool and enjoy over the next few years.

Vernay 2015 Côte Rôtie Blonde du Seigneur

Nose is a bit reserved on opening. Blackberry, dusty stone, pastilles, black olive, Italian plum aromas appear with some air. Palate has good density (and energy for the warmth of the vintage). Black olive, black raspberry, iron and pepper on the palate, with ripe tannins, succulent acidity, beneath the rich dry extract. Lovely stuff and a fine Côte-Rôtie, indeed! John McIlwain

Sake

Manatsuru Yamahai Tokubetsu Junmai Murok Mana 1571

Full bodied and with great texture on the palate, this is a sake to build a meal around. Notes of steamed rice, green melon, lemon curd, pickled bamboo, lotus root, yogurt, black pepper, and a certain earthy, savory je ne sais quoi make this a very complex and engaging sake. It is bottled from a single tank, as the producer feels they want to preserve the individual qualities of each batch as opposed to blending for consistency. This sake is also bottled without charcoal filtration and undiluted, which adds to its richness and texture. Oskar Kostecki

Miyasaka "Masumi" Nagano "Hiyaoroshi" Junmai Ginjo 720 ml

Hiyaoroshi is a seasonal sake, made towards the end of the brewing season, typically only pasteurized once, and then aged in glass until its release the following autumn, when it is meant to be drunk with heartier winter foods. Masumi, the premium brand from Miyasake Shuzo in Nagano, makes one of our favorites. Among the more forward notes of steamed rice and melon is a savory undercurrent of sesame paste, hazelnuts, cream and a faint whiff of pine, moss, and crushed leaves. As the sake warms up to room temperature, the savory characteristics become even more prominent. Oskar Kostecki

Springbank 12 year old Cask Strength 113 Pf

Each year, this release gets me more excited than almost anything else. The 12 year cask strength has everything I love about Springbank whisky, but on steroids. Amplified aromas of dried fruit, dried cherries, citrus rind, and leather assault the palate, with a faint whiff of smoke and engine oil. This was aged in 70% sherry cask, and it shows in the creamy texture. Snap this up before its gone! Oskar Kostecki

Springbank 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky Campbeltown 750ml

From the peninsula of Campbeltown comes the historic Springbank. Campbeltown once was the thriving center of Scottish distillation, now Springbank is one of the few left. A truly artisanal operation that employs their own floor maltings. Springbank uses a light peating for a smoky island character. The malt is actually distilled two and a half times, so there is a lightness that, when combined with the rugged terrain, creates a complex scotch that is very unique. Most of the malt was raised in Bourbon barrels for a pure, dry expression. (46% ABV) JR

The fox is back! Juan Ramon's first white from a grape he adores, Chenin Blanc. Light maceration here of about 10 days, with 8 months aging in amphora. A quintessential natural wine from Spain, and a bit of a curve-ball for Chenin fans, but maybe that's why we love it!  Eben Lillie

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Macabeu Semibrisat

Macabeu from Catalan country, just south of the French border in Spain. About half of the fruit undergoes full carbonic maceration (whole berries with no crushed skins, fermentation inside the grapes) for 10 days, and the other half is macerated for 4 days. The vines are from a 70-75 year old plot on white clay and limestone near the sea, in Serra de Montmell. I am a big fan of Macabeu, as it's a fuller bodied white grape with a lot of character, good weight and balance, and there's nothing "buttery" about it. There's a tiny bit of structure from the short maceration, but it's essentially a white wine, and one that leaves a lasting impression.

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Valentia Carignan Blanc

Salvador Batlle is considered the anfora master of Catalunya. Every wine he makes goes through an amphora (clay pot) at some point and they're always made with no SO2 added. Most of Batlle's vines are in Emporda, just south of the French border in the Catalan part of Spain. The rare Carignan Blanc is featured here, from a 60 year old plot on sandy granitic terroir. Most of the juice is macerated on the skins for 4 days and then fermented and aged in 220L amphora, with about 20% going into old 500L chestnut barrels. Though not an orange wine, there's definitely the impressive character and subtle earthiness of the Carignan Blanc showing. This is a pure, natural wine that evolves beautifully over hours or days.  Eben Lillie

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Via Fora Red

Sumoll is a local grape from Catalunya, and this wine from Salvador Batlle is one of the more technical, precise, and dare I say "serious" expressions I've ever tasted. About a quarter of the grapes undergo full carbonic maceration in a stainless steel tank, with another quarter macerated for 4 days, then pressed off the skins and fermented in amphora. The other half of the grapes are macerated and fermented in amphora for 14 days (with skins the whole time). Most of the aging is in 220L amphora, with a small amount in 500L old chestnut barrels. Relatively light bodied, but with very pure and direct dark berry fruit. There's something almost clean or crystalline about this wine, especially considering there is no SO2 added, and compared to other Sumolls I've had that are wild, fresh, and a bit more funky. This is by no means a complaint! In fact, if anything it's a recommendation, as this is a natural wine that can win over many a skeptic.   EL

Goyo Garcia Viadero 2017 Ribera del Duero Joven de Viñas Viejas

With this fantastic fresh wine, Goyo Garcia expresses elegance with a touch of robustness. A 100% Tinto Fino (a/k/a Tempranillo) from 30-year-old vines planted on a single vineyard on sandy clay and limestone soils at 880 meters altitude, the grapes are fully destemmed, fermented with wild yeast in steel tanks and then aged in tanks for about 5 months. There was no filtering or fining of the wine but a little sulfur was added at bottling. The result is a wine superbly expressive with a complex bouquet of violet flowers, black cherry, dark wild berry, vegetable, earth and Mediterranean herbs notes layered with bright acidity, vibrant tannin and precise stony minerality. A delicious wine to pair with roasted lamb, grilled sausage, charcuterie and nutty cheese. Caroline Coursant

Ignios Orígenes 2016 Tenerife Ycoden Daute Isora Listán Negro

Listan Negro is ubiquitous in the Canary Islands, but Ignios' rendition is unique. From a one-half hectare, 30-year-old single vineyard planted on iron-rich clay loam on a coastal banana plantation, the 2015 is tart and salty, with herbal raspberry and reductive aromas feeding into flavors of sour cherry, plum peels, red beets, salty soy, pepper, iodine, and smoky, funky earth. This wine evolves wonderfully with air as well as age in bottle. Decanting recommended. Ariana Rolich

We are so excited to have the 2016 Marmajuelo! Coming from two small 20-year-old parcels, amounting to a mere 700kg of grapes, the wine is a rarity and should be drunk with this in mind. Displaying an exciting bouquet of citrus and tropical fruit, salt, ashy, savory and smoky minerality, the wine is vibrant with an endearing complexity. The wine is slightly textural with a beautiful and lingering finish and will pair wonderfully with adventurous and exotic dishes - think Asian-inspired recipes, Caribbean jerk chicken, and fish Tikka Masala.

La Palma native Victoria Torres makes this supple, minerally red wine with her family's large Roman press of Canarian pine that dates back to the 1800s. 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. In the Canary Islands, fresh red wines are frequently consumed alongside fresh grilled fish with herbs. This is highly recommended!

3 Porcs is a collaboration between Oriol, Francesc Ferre from Cellar Frisach, and a mutual friend who mostly makes wine for family and friends. Pansa Blanca from Alella meets Garnacha Blanca from Terra Alta, and Parellada from Penedes. Grapes were co-fermented (whole-cluster) for 5 days, and the wine was aged for several months, during which some flor formed. It wasn't intentional, and it's not evident from tasting the wine, but nonetheless an important detail. Only in mag and from a very limited bottling, this is all we got!  Eben Lillie

With a fantastic bouquet of light white flower, honey blossom, Meyer lemon, clementine and salt, the wine is deliciously fragrant but also savory and saline. On the palate, the wine is textural and dry while keeping a beautiful crisp finish. Terrific with roasted chicken, ceviche, light pasta dishes, Asian-inspired dishes, or nutty cheese.

This is their white blend, sourced from old vineyards of Vinyater, Xarel-lo, Moscatel, Garnacha Blanca, Parellada, and Macabeu. All the fruit is co-fermented, with no added SO2, as is the unwavering practice at Partida Creus. Surely one of the least expensive (and most) "funky" whites we have at Chambers Street!

This fantastic white wine is a blend of Macabeu, Garnatxa Blanca, and Cartoixà (Xarello) coming from Sara Pérez and René Barbier Jr.'s home and winery in Montsant -- Venus La Universal. The grapes undergo different macerations: one portion is macerated with skin for 3-5 days in open-top barrels, another is macerated with skin for 24 hours, while the remainder is directly pressed. Raised in a mix of 300 and 600 liter barrels and locally made clay amphorae, this 2016 Dido Blanco displays flavors of pear, lime zest, pineapple core, and slight herb, bright acidity, and beautiful chalky minerality. The finish is long and beautifully complex. A perfect white wine to pair with roasted chicken, and savory summery vegetables. Caroline Coursant

With good acidity and a beautiful finish, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for several years. Caroline Coursant

Mescal Tosba Pechuga Oaxaca

Tosba's Pechuga is a beautiful example of the category. A bit reticent at first, it really needs a few days open to truly spread its wings. The pechuga is triple distilled with pineapple, wild plums, bananas, apples, rice, and turkey breast suspended in the still on the third run. This celebratory style of mezcal is extremely complex, with tropical fruit notes coupling with the more savory nuances extracted from the rice and meat, and also hints of raw cocoa, thyme, and almonds. Due to the suspended fruits and turkey breast, this mezcal is rich and mouth-coating on the palate, with a very long finish. Oskar Kostecki

Barril is usually one of my favorite agave species used in the distillation of mezcal, and this example from Real Minero is no different. Tremendously expressive, this shows notes of papaya, guava, pineapple, purple flowers, apple, pear drop, candied orange, earth, and saline minerality. This is a very joyful and generous mezcal, with incredible complexity. Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Tosba Dua Warash Oaxaca

The agave that Edgar calls Warash is most likely indigenous to the Sierra Norte Mountains. At least the folks at the Consejo Regulador de Mezcal down in Oaxaca City seem to think so, as they have never seen anything like it anywhere else. Edgar first encountered a solitary plant as he was walking in the mountains and became intrigued. After monitoring this sole agave, he was able to obtain seeds, and propagate it on a wider scale. After a few attempts at distilling it, this year Mezcal Tosba has finally been able to release the first ever commercial batch of Warash! This is a truly knockout mezcal and unlike anything I've ever tasted. Wave after wave of roasted pineapple, red berry fruit, wild raspberries, lime zest and a green, herbal character. Extravagant yet balanced, there is beautiful viscosity on the palate and almost a honeyed edge. To tame the raw distillate, Edgar rested this batch in glass for a year and a half, and only 180 bottles were produced in this first batch. Having tasted it at the palenque and then again in New York, I can safely say it is one of the best mezcals I have tried this year. Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Tosba Espadin Oaxaca

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

Cooper Hill 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Cooper Mountain Vineyards started in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Today, the estate has more than 100 acres  dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking. This Pinot Noir is refreshing and ripe, with brambly raspberry and cherry fruit, baking spice, and earthy flavors.

Fossil & Fawn 2016 Willamette Valley Silvershot Vineyard Pinot Noir

Father and son Jim Fischer I and Jim Fischer II farm a single site, Silvershot Vineyards, and craft wine made with minimal intervention that are meant to express the maximum potential of their specific site. Jim Fischer I and his brother Bill planted Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris on a gentle south/southwest facing slope on Holmes Hill right at the exit of Holmes Gap, the furthest inland portion of Oregon's viticulturally important Van Duzer Corridor, a gap in the coastal mountains that allows cooling air to sweep through from the Pacific into the Willamette Valley. These wines are energetic and full of an awesome melange of tart cranberry fruit, violets, spice, and a quirky, saline, minerally energy that is as enticing when drunk alone as it is accepting of a wide array of dishes. A fantastic food wine, with more delicately enumerated fruit structure than many American Pinots. 142 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Revik 2015 Howell Mountain Diogenes Ridge Vnyd Cabernet

Diogenes Ridge is located at 1800 feet above St. Helena in the Vaca mountains, this Cabernet is athletic and powerful, but without any excess weight. 15% whole cluster, spontaneous open-top ferment, eighteen days on the skins, and eighteen months in 50% new French oak barrels give this wine a force that is brought to an exquisite tension by its incredible acid backbone. Powerful, tannic, and clocking in under 14% ABV, this wine is extraordinarily balanced and capable of many years of cellaring. Traditional black currant is furled in chocolate shavings, hearth ash, peppercorn, cherry pit, samovar, and alabaster dust. Tiny production (two barrels) and alertness in the cellar have produced a fantastic expression of Napa Cabernet that bridges stylistic tendencies and generations. Andrew Farquhar

Fossil & Fawn 2017 Willamette Valley Silvershot Vineyard Pinot Gris

Named after the marine fossils found in the Oligocene marine sediment that makes up the soil of the vineyard and the baby deer hiding in tussocks in the oak savanna that surrounds the vineyard, Fossil & Fawn is a site-specific experiment that focuses on the dry-farmed Silvershot Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. They make this Pinot Gris exactly as if it were a red wine. About half the lot was destemmed and then foot-trod for two weeks during indigenous yeast fermentation. The other portion of the lot was set aside for full carbonic maceration. Bottled unfined and unfiltered the next spring, this wine is amazingly juicy on the nose, but the palate is funky, with herbal and leathery notes to complement the good muted red fruit. Nervy and energetic, this is a fantastic light red, deeper in hue than many skin-contact Pinot Gris wines I've tasted, yet still light and refreshing. Fantastic with mezze, grilled seafood, marcona almonds, or fried chicken. 131 cases porduced. Andrew Farquhar

Revik 2016 Napa Valley Coombsville Saphi Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Revik Wine Co. is the passion project of two married couples who are releasing their first vintages this summer. This is a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc that positions itself at the forefront of a new wave of dynamic, elegantly structured, complex Sauvignon Blancs coming from the West Coast. Made with fruit sourced from the Saphi Vineyard in Coombsville (Revik winemaker Phil Holbrook's dry-farmed home vineyard), this wine was aged in both stainless steel and neutral oak, with 8 months on the lees. Unfined and unfiltered, and fermented with native yeast, this wine has great depth and a long linear texture, with subtle, muted citrus fruit wrapped in a chrysalis of finely spun woolen notes. Peach fuzz and melon rind absorb into zippy acidity. The subtle degrees of shading are spectacular and the finish feels like forever. Two barrels produced. Andrew Farquhar

SITE 2015 Santa Barbara County Larner Vineyard Viognier

Sourced from the organically certified Larner vineyard at the southern end of Ballard Canyon, this is one of the most electrifying wines made from Viognier I have ever tasted. On one level this wine shows all the classic varietal character of Viognier: apricot, peach fuzz, and honeyed herbal notes. Yet these are mixed into a transcendent admixture with incredible structure, great acidity, and a distinct nervy saline character coming from the Larner vineyard's limestone bedrock, laid over with sand. Hints of chamomile, white peach, pine resin, and beeswax fill out this elegantly textured, structurally profound wine. Andrew Farquhar

Haute Glaces NV French Rye Whiskey Single Cask #79

This is a fantastic new arrival from the small Domaine des Hautes Glaces in southeastern France! Master Distiller Frederic Revol meticulously looks after his certified organic, 40 hectare estate, which is where all the grains used for the mash bill are harvested. Distillation happens in a wood-fired copper pot still and each small batch is aged differently depending on from where the grains were sourced on the property. Cask #31 is a single cask of single malt whisky that is aged for a bit over four years in a used Condrieu cask. Bottled unchillfiltered and a bit under cask strength at 56.4% ABV, it practically explodes from the glass. The nose is rich and luscious with cashew butter, honey, dried flowers, and smoky bacon fat aromas. Once on the palate the decadence continues with flavors of fudge and coffee bean at first followed by bright, tropical fruit (no doubt from the Condrieu cask) and a touch of rancio. The finish is absolutely silken, stunning, and long. Tim Gagnon

High Wire Distilling New Southern Revival 4-Grain Madeira-Finished Bourbon 750

Much like the Barrel-Rested Gin, this Madeira cask-finished Bourbon is an interesting experiment on the effects of different barrels on distilled spirits. It is the exact same whiskey as the Four-Grain Bourbon but aged in Madeira barrels for six additional months. On the nose, that unmistakable grain character is still there, but there is more lift with high-toned, vivid red berry fruit, wildflower honey, and a touch of rancio right on its heels. It is also a bit brighter on the palate with more fruit and a touch of sea minerals. Cereal grains and honey linger on the tongue allowing the whiskey to come full circle for a wonderfully complete Bourbon. This is simply delicious! Tim Gagnon
