Barth 2014 Alsace Riesling

This is a classic dry Riesling from Laurent Barth. Plenty of complexity and salinity with nice granitic character in the finish, but still round enough to please a variety of palettes.

Jean Ginglinger 2016 Alsace Lerchenberg Riesling

This is a truly beautiful  Riesling that involves a year-long infusion, where grapes are loaded into a sack (think of a really large tea bag or cheesecloth sack) and infused with the wine over the course of a year. It's a useful technique for ensuring the yeasts have food to eat and ferment the wine totally dry. It's also really bizarre and something I'd never heard of before I met Jean. The Lerchenberg vineyard is mostly clay and limestone, providing some sharp minerality. It's just my opinion, but I believe this wine does not just taste good, but feels good. It's a pure no-sulfur wine, and the energy and natural acidity are unparalleled compared with any sulfured wine I've had. A great success and a great Riesling, for immediate consumption or long-term aging. Eben Lillie

Borachio 2018 Adelaide Hills "Pash Rash" Pet Nat

“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

Preisinger, Claus 2017 Burgenland Kalkundkiesel Red

A blend of Pinot Noir and Blaufränkisch biodynamically grown on a mix of chalk limestone (kalk) and gravel (kiesel); stoney on the nose, and just slightly reductive upon opening, fresh red and black plums and juicy strawberry flood the palate with a whisper of delicate tannin on finish. Unfined, unfiltered, no sulfur added, this is a fantastic wine to pair with wild mushroom risotto, roasted chicken and potatoes, Wiener schnitzel, any sort of vegetable gratin!  Cari Bernard

Beaujolais

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

Guillot, Julien (Vignes du Maynes) 2015 Beaujolais Leynes Haut de Balmont

Julien Guillot of the Clos des Vignes du Maynes makes this beautiful Beaujolais from a small parcel of 90 year-old Gamay vines of various old varieties in Leynes, just south of Pouilly-Fuissé. The parcel is at 1200 ft in altitude, with granite soils. From the warm 2015 vintage, the wine shows ripe blackberry aromas with earth, mint, cocoa and game; the palate is dense with supple blackberry fruit framed in firm acidity and strong flavors of earth, citrus and minerals. This is a complex and delicious Gamay that will accompany grilled foods this summer, stews and tagines throughout the year. Cellaring for five to eight years would be interesting. David Lillie

Chateau Massereau 2007 Bordeaux Superieur Cuvee K

A delicious Bordeaux at a great price - Château Massereau is an estate situated in Barsac, approximately 30km from Bordeaux, that practices organic farming and is fully committed to natural wine-making, using minimum amount of sulfur when devatting. A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot planted on alluvial soils, the grapes are fermented for a long time (10 weeks) in concrete vats and then aged for 16 months in neutral barriques before a 10-year elevage in the bottle before release. On the nose, the wine is complex with a bouquet of dark berry, plum, cedar, violet, and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is lifted by its beautiful acidity and displays great density and soft tannins. Perfect for your holiday festivities, the wine will fantastically pair with braised rosemary lamb shoulder, roasted turkey with gravy, and red-skin mashed potatoes. Caroline Coursant

Clos du Jaugueyron (Théron) 2014 Margaux Nout 1.5 L

“Nout” is a pure-fruited and grippy Margaux that is mainly sourced from Michel Théron’s younger vines of Merlot planted in the sandy soils of Macau; the remainder is Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Michel’s judicious use of more new oak for this cuvée lends structure to the blend; elevating the earthy, graphite mineral notes of the Cabernet and softening the sapid berry fruit of the Merlot for a refreshing and exquisitely textured Margaux (especially in the lean 2014 vintage). The aromas offer lovely strawberry and blood orange notes with mellow tones of cocoa, thyme, ash, and earth. The palate is silken and buoyed by bright acidity and powdery tannins. Flavors of dried red currants, citrus, and pepper play out on a long mineral finish. A great value Margaux that is drinking now and will only get better with time in the bottle.  Amanda Bowman

Coutet 2016 Vin de France Claret de Coutet

What a fantastic Claret from Coutet! This Saint Émilion estate, certified organic since 2012, does not use any chemical treatments on the land and the results show on the quality of their wines.  A Claret, the wine shows off a gorgeous dark pink color with purple hue. On the nose, the bouquet of juicy red raspberry, ripe strawberry, and dark rose petal notes is enticing. The palate is complex and luscious with notes of red berry fruit, yellow plum, wild flower and mint lingering on the finish, and with a beautiful texture and pretty acidity. Drink this wine by itself or with blackened salmon, light roasted chicken or steak tartare.  Caroline Coursant

Fonroque 2014 Grand Cru Classe Saint-Emilion

This is a great Bordeaux to bring to your Holiday parties! Château Fonroque is a superb certified biodynamic and organic estate near Saint-Émilion. Owned by the Moueix family since 1931, the estate is a proponent of traditional wine-making techniques with hand harvesting, spontaneous yeasts, and limited use of new oak. An elegant Bordeaux with precise minerality, the wine is a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%) of 35-year-old vines planted on limestone soils with some portions of clay on the hillside of the vineyard. The wine is fermented with native yeast in concrete vats and then aged in oak (with 30% new), keeping the freshness of the vintage. The resulting wine is a Bordeaux with energy and tension, bright calcareous minerality, great acidity and grippy tannin. On the nose, the bouquet is complex and lively with crunchy cranberry and black cherry, tart dark berries, dried tobacco leaves, Moroccan spices, earth, purple flower and savory notes. Drinking beautifully now, pair this wine with classic fare, such a steak, roasted rack of lamb, duck breast and full-flavored cheese, or age it for several years (7 years or more). Caroline Coursant

Le Geai 2016 Bordeaux Superieur Argiles de Pauline (Anfora)

Henri Duporge at Château Le Geai makes this unique Bordeaux from Merlot and Malbec, the tradional blend in the northern Libournais in the 1800s. The vines grow in "blue clay" over limestone, fermentation is with wild yeasts and the wine ages 12 months in amfora, with only a tiny addition of volcanic sulfur. Certified organic and Biodynamic. The 2015 Argiles de Pauline shows a deep black/purple color and lush aromas of ripe cassis and red currant with rose, earth, spice and citrus. The palate is deep and ripe with blackberry, cassis and plum, with silky tannins - dense but bright and balanced finishing with black fruits and juicy acids. Drinking beautifully now, this is a perfect pairing for a steak, pork chop or grilled lamb, and aging for eight to ten years should be very interesting.  David Lillie

Domaine Boingnères 2001 Bas-Armagnac Folle Blanche

Boingneres is one of the legendary names in Armagnac, and along with Laberdolive produces some of the most complex and beautiful spirits in France. This 2001 vintage is made from 100% Folle Blanche, the rarest of the grapes used in the production of Cognac and Armagnac, lending a beautiful floral note to the spirit. This Armagnac has it all, combining fruit, spice and floral notes in an intense melange of flavor and texture, with density and incredible length. Dried fruit, plum, apricot, dried yellow flowers, baking spice, a hint of leather, dried tea leaves, walnuts, and a touch of balsamic are all present here, creating a spirit that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

Montreuil NV Calvados du Pays d'Auge Reserve

Montreuil is a collaboration between Calvados importer and guru Charles Neal and Patrice Giard – heir to the bucolic Giard estate in the hamlet of Montreuil. Cows (primarily used for their milk) provide the majority of the farm’s revenue, but the property has made quite a name for itself for their library of aged Calvados still in barrel that will be released under the Giard label. The Montreuil label represents barrels averaging 7 years old that provide rich, apple fruit with a touch of wood vanillin and toffee sweetness. A great value for sipping, but also not too dear to use as a stand-in for American applejack in classic cocktails like a Jack Rose:2 ounces apple brandy or calvados, ¾ ounce lime or lemon juice, and ¾ ounce grenadine; served up.  John Rankin

I enjoy younger French brandy for its exuberance and primary character. This 2008 shows a beautiful balance of fruit and spice notes, with dried peach, peach skin, dried apricot, apricot jam, lavender, yellow flowers, dried leaves, tea leaves, and salted toffee all showing wonderfully on the nose and palate. The palate is quite intense and vibrant, combining both brightness and depth. Bottled at 50% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

Through the Grapevine Cognac Fine Bois Remi Landier Lot 73

I am astounded by the freshness that this old Cognac carries. A single cask from the outlying appellation of Fin Bois, this was distilled in 1973 by the Landier family from grapes grown in clay-limestone soils. It has a beautiful, lifted aromatic profile, with notes of citrus, tangerine, orange zest, orange marmalade, white flowers, apple, pear, and darker aromas of plum and toffee. There is a hint of rancio and baking spice, and while you can feel the age of the spirit, the roundness it carries on the palate and its phenomenal length, there is also a vibrancy to the fruit character that I've never experienced in a Cognac this old. A truly unique expression. Bottled at 47.8% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

The Chauchet-Voyer family has been farming vineyards and making Cognac in the limestone-rich terroir of Grande Champagne for the past five generations. This spirit comes from a single barrel filled in 1993 and aged for 25 years. Distilled on the lees, this is a powerful and broad-shouldered Cognac, with great density on the palate and notes of baked apples, poached pears, leather, baking spice, apricot marmalade, dried cherries, a hint of forest floor and balsamic. A beautiful expression of the richness that Cognac can deliver without the use of artificial color, added sugar, or boisé. Bottled at 45.9%. Oskar Kostecki

Champs de l'Abbaye 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay

From Chardonnay grown on an excellent limestone/clay parcel in Aluze, next to Mercurey. Certified organic, hand-harvested, low yields, very long (10 month) wild-yeast fermentation in barrel. The 2017 shows lovely aromas of dried pear, melon, fines herbes, wet stone, and lemon peel—showing Chardonnay's relation to the Melon de Bourgogne of Muscadet!  The palate shows very firm acidity underneath lime flower, citrus rind, and  ripe white fruits with a touch of oak, almond and mineral flavors. The finish is long and bracing, with white fruits and citrus, very much in the stye of De Moor in Chablis. This is an elegant racy, stylish white Burgundy that is a great value as well. David Lillie

Chavy, Philippe 2016 Bourgogne Chardonnay

Fresh and cool-toned aromatically, the 2016 Philippe Chavy Bourgogne Blanc balances charm and  energy at a civilized (for white Burgundy) price point. Meyer lemon, white flower and stone fruit aromas dominate the nose. The briskly fresh palate displays citrus peel, white apricot, and stony flavors on a succulent and zesty finish with good mineral detail. A fine aperitif, but with enough depth to grace the table with shellfish, sea bass, and milder cheeses. John McIlwain

This is displaying nascent complexity and should reveal even more layers with a couple of years in the cellar. Superb Narvaux! John McIlwain

Intense, very mineral palate with pear, citrus and stone flavors and terrific length. The antithesis of fat, oaky Chardonnays, this food friendly wine will accompany everything from oysters and grilled seafoods to roast chicken and mild cheeses. Delicious now or cellar for 5 to 8 years. This is a real Chardonnay of terroir and a great value!  David Lillie

Rontets 2015 Pouilly-Fuissé Pierrefolle

"The Pouilly-Fuissé cuvée Pierrefolle is made from the only vineyard situated outside the Clos at Rontets: this plot is set only 500 meters south and is warmer because of its plain East exposure and the sheltered position from the North wind. This climat has older geological origins, preceding the Jurassic era: it sits on a granitic bedrock and its soil has no clay or limestone. This is why at the beginning of the 1970s it was planted using the Riparia rootstock, which has low vigor and guarantees limited yields and very good quality grapes. All these characteristics produce wines with lower acid, compared to those produced within our Clos. Although larger and somehow more generous, Pierrefolle is always sustained by a precise mineral expression and citrus aromatic note." In the warm 2015 vintage, the Pierrefolle shows ripe aomas of white and exotic fruits with a bit of spice and earth. The palate, however, remains very mineral with firm saline acidity underlying the pear and citrus fruit. The finish is long with mineral flavors lingering on the palate. This is a beautiful Burgundy and a great food pairing - drinking well now, but five to ten years of aging will be very interesting. Highly recommended. David Lillie

Champagne

Agrapart NV Avize Grand Cru Extra Brut Complantée b16

This wine is based on the three classic Champagne varieties with the addition of Arbanne, Pinot Blanc, and Petit Meslier. The vines are planted in the "La Fosse" vineyard, the same vineyard that gives us the fabulous cuvée Vénus. The idea behind this wine is to see if terroir trumps variety, the ancient varieties sort of cancelling each other out to reveal greater expression of minerality. The wine is outstanding with fennel and red fruit notes on the nose, very fine mousse, and a beautiful, chalky finish. In general, these ancient varieties can yield a rustic Champagne, but, as we'd expect from Agrapart, this wine is the soul of refinement. (dosage: 5 grams) -Sophie Barrett

Bérêche, Raphael NV "L13" Champagne Brut Reflets d'Antan Base 13

For holiday celebrations, Champagne is a must. Not just for the festive association of bubbles, but also because it is truly one of the most versatile wines to grace one's table. The inherent acidity of the wine cuts through the richness of the foods, while the bubbles and moderate alcohol invigorate the palate rather than tire it. One of my favorite Champagnes for the table is Bérêche's Reflets d'Antan. Based on a perpetual cuvée dating from the 1980's, the wine combines the vivid, nervy fruit of a recent vintage with the burnished, textural and aromatic complexity of the aged wines which make up the 'solera.' The secondary fermentation under cork rather than crown cap adds an additional layer of finesse with a delicate bead and soft mousse. Better served in a white wine glass to allow the aromas to develop. John McIlwain

Doyard NV 13b Champagne Premier Cru Brut Cuvée Vendémiaire base 13

Made from 100% Chardonnay from organically farmed vineyards in Vertus, Le Mesnil, Orger, Avize, and Cramant, the 2013 base Cuvée Vendémiaire is a must for fans of chiseled, chalky Champagnes from the Côte des Blancs. With long lees aging (56 months, partially in oak), low sulfur, and bottling under lower pressure, this shows a more vinous side of Blanc de Blancs, while offering tremendous value. The nose is a pleasing mélange of floral lemon blossom and citrusy notes, with cool herbal and biscuity notes. The mid-weight palate has notes of lemon curd, russet apple,  with a creamy mid-palate giving way to an incisively chalky finish. Makes for a bracing aperitif and is a fine pairing with a platter of Island creek oysters. -John McIlwain

Pouillon, R 2008 Champagne 1er Cru Brut Nature Les Blanchiens 1.5L

From an organically farmed, single-vineyard parcel at the top of the slope on the western side of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. 50% Pinot Noir  and 50% Chardonnay fermented in used barrels. Disgorged in Spring 2017, zero dosage. Though from a premier cru village rather than its grand cru neighbor, Aÿ, the 2010 Les Blanchiens is no less an articulate expression of the calcareous clay soils that make up its terroir. The nose offers toasty brioche, Meyer lemon peel, lemon blossom and sea spray aromas. The palate shows punchy vibrant fruit t on the attack, with an incisive minerality dominating a rich and complex mid-palate. This is manifested by pungent soil notes, which give way to distinctly savory, sapid, and powerful finish. Though bottled without dosage, this is by no means austere.

Chevrot 2016 Bourgogne Rouge

High-toned, floral and fresh with bright red fruit notes and zesty acidity. 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.

Faiveley 2016 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru

Ripe, perfumed, and dark-fruited on the nose with a mélange of floral and spice notes and a discreet touch of oak, the 2016 Clos des Cortons has a sensational sense of brightness and complexity. The palate offers a dramatic combination of pure fruit, supple tannins, and vigorous minerality on a layered, harmonious, classy finish. This is lovely and should age effortlessly. Beautiful Corton, indeed. John McIlwain

Arlaud 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2016 (from Barrel) 35+ year-old vines 20% new oak. Touch of reduction initially, then deeply aromatic, freshly turned earth, roses, violets, stone fruits, animale, notes of forest floor. Tightly wound and knit; there's almost too much going on and all of it's interesting. Dense, verging on sinewy on the palate, taut, structured, muscular. Deep fruit core of black and blue fruits, great ripeness and sap. Vibrant energy coiled within. This is tightly wound and will take time. Perfect ripeness and very Bonnes Mares. Fine breed and energy. Masculine and majestic. Hold 12-15+ years. Great potential. John McIlwain

Arlaud 2016 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots

60+year-old vines planted in a walled clos on Chambolle side of Morey beneath Bonnes Mares and Clos de Tart.  15% new oak. More structured, deeper-pitched, and masculine than Les Millandes. Pure plummy black cherry fruit with sauvage/animale elements and a  frank, ferrous minerality within. Great density and agility. You can taste the proximity to Sentiers and Bonnes Mares. This is dynamite! Nearly painfully long, stony, palate-staining finish. This isn't a wine to enjoy in its callow youth, but will reward with 12-15+ years in the cellar. Patience is a virtue here.

Coudray-Bizot 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetiers

Locate above the village of Gevrey-Chambertin on a steep slope to the east of Clos St. Jacques, Les Cazetiers has an east-facing exposure and has soils strewn with pebbly soils. The 2010 has a pale ruby robe. Sour cherry, black tea, strawberry compote, rhubarb on the nose, giving way to aromas of wet bark, and game notes. Moves from shy to expressive--if not quite garrulous--with air. The oak is so subtle as to be just a whisper. The medium-bodied  wine offers ripe flavors of Morello cherry, cherry pit, limestone, and even a pleasing note of rhubarb and pomegranate on the attack,  followed by an expressively detailed mid-palate that balances sweet, savory, floral, and spice elements with aplomb. No bombast or flash, this is seamless and without affectation. Were it an actor, Helen Mirren? Lillian Gish? Lovely, precise, and subtly powerful, with great persistence and succulence on the long, vibrant finish with plenty of energy still coiled within. Certainly a pleasure to drink today, but I suspect this will gain complexity and gravitas with time in the cellar. John McIlwain

Faiveley 2016 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

The 2016 Faiveley Clos de Bèze already offers a dazzling array of dark and red fruits, wild berries, pure cherry, and turned earth on the nose. The concentrated palate offers spicy cherry and plum flavors with notes of game, mustard seed, and black tea over a layered and dense mineral core of impressive length and complexity giving way to a long, detailed, stony finish. This will take the better part of a decade to integrate all of its elements, but should provide rewarding drinking for the patient. Excellent Clos de Bèze. John McIlwain

Jane et Sylvain 2015 Côte de Nuits Villages Queue de Hareng

The vines are in the lieu-dit "Queue de Hareng" below an old quarry at the top of the slope in Brochon, next to Fixin 1er Cru "la Perrière," on shallow red/brown soils of mountain silt and limestone pebbles over the limestone bedrock. Organic farming, wild-yeast fermentations with minimal SO2. The 2015 Jane et Sylvain Côte de Nuits-Villages is a superb and unusual Burgundy showing intense aromas of ripe strawberry and cherry with rose leaf, brown spice and herbal notes as well as dusty stone and mineral smells which are typical of this vineyard. With aeration the aromas become more pure and fruit-driven and the palate shows lovely black cherry, strawberry and red currant fruit, quite dense and ripe, with a finish that's extraordinarily long and pure. Decant 4 to 6 hours in advance if drinking now, or cellar for 3 to 5 years and drink till 2027. Highly recommended for those who enjoy some minerals in their Burgundy!

Lignier-Michelot 2016 Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes

From 65 year-old vines. High-toned and floral with effusive aromas of rose petals, and black and red raspberry with hints of spice and earth. The palate shows good concentration and lift with succulent berry flavors, and a sapid earthiness on a driving, nervy, linear finish. Seems a bit coiled and in need of a fairly long decant or a couple of years in the cellar to unwind, but there's great lift and persistence to the finish and I suspect this will blossom with time.

Lignier-Michelot 2016 Morey St. Denis Grand Cru Clos de la Roche

Like the rest of the lineup, the 2016 Clos de la Roche from Lignier-Michelot is a wine of nearly startling intensity and purity. The nose is redolent of spicy red fruits, violets and roses, and earthy game aromas with layer after layer of soil notes. The perfectly ripe palate is a mélange of sweet, ripe, pure fruit dancing above a deeply-pitched mineral core of fantastically articulate detail. I love the balance of shimmering energy and mineral intensity here that carries through on the long, sophisticated, rising finish. This has great class and will benefit from 10-12 years in the cellar and beyond. A truly beautiful Clos de la Roche! John McIlwain

Rateau 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin

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. The midweight palate is lithe, racy, and offers up vibrant flavors of dark fruits, crushed herbs, game, and salty soil notes. Great lifted acidity and core of minerality overlain by an assortment of wild berry fruits. This is another great example of the combination of perfume, pure fruit, and detailed earthiness that is a hallmark of the 2016 vintage. Great tension and verve and a bargain at the price. Wonderful with veau aux champignons. John McIlwain

Brand 2016 Pfalz Sylvaner 'Elis' Pur

'Elis' is short for Elisabeth, the previous owner of this parcel of 78-year-old Sylvaner, grown on gravely, sandy soils; 50% of which was hand-harvested early and allowed to ferment on the skins for one week. Fermentation and aging in used barrel, no fining, no filtration, no problem (also no sulfur added). A very, very tiny amount made, and we've ended up with just a case. If you love Sylvaner (and you should), this is mandatory drinking. White tea, pear, quince skin on the nose, elegant and concentrated notes of apricot, quince, and white strawberry on the powerful, lengthy finish. An incredibly sophisticated wine from such young winemakers, we eagerly look forward to future vintages! Cari Bernard

Brand 2017 Pfalz Cabernet Franc Pur

Cabernet Franc from the northern Pfalz? Hell ja! Daniel and Jonas got their hands on a clone with slightly looser bunches, which works well for this hot vineyard site (the vines are now five years old). I was able to try a new bottle and one that had been open for one and a half weeks, and both were stunning. Starting with cherries and salty capers on the nose, black and red plum on the medium-bodied palate, the wine proved to be deeply layered and elegant. The pre-opened bottle was still great, settled and soft, more black currant and plummy. A fascinating look into Pfalzer Cab Franc! Cari Bernard

Gin

Cotswolds Dry Gin

A recent arrival to the US market! Named for the rural area outside of London in where the distillery is located, Cotswolds Gin went into production in 2014. Nine botanicals undergo 18-hour maceration in a base distillate of wheat and these include juniper, coriander, bay, fresh citrus peel, and black pepper, among others. It is beautifully aromatic – juniper heavy, with cool overtones of balsam, mint, rosemary, cucumber, and lime – but maintains a classic, dry profile on the palate with added lift seemingly from the fresh citrus peel. Green herbs and black pepper creep in on the finish. Very balanced and long, this makes a killer Martini, and it is also un-chillfiltered so it clouds up when cold! Tim Gagnon

Ronchi di Cialla 2017 Colli Orientali del Friuli Ribolla Gialla

Ronchi di Cialla is most famous for their role in reviving the grape Schioppettino, and rightfully so, but the Ribolla Gialla will always be my favorite. It is a distinctive expression of Ribolla from 30-year-old vines exposed to the south west that shows a delicate fruit character and crunchy minerality. The wine is vinified in stainless steel, held in contact with the lees for three months with frequent batonnage, and then bottled unfiltered. Quite pale in the glass, the nose shows a mix of lemon pith and clementines over ripe golden apples, white flowers with a woodsy note of sage and underbrush. Medium bodied with crisp acidity, it has a light texture with juicy citrus fruit and has a sharply mineral finish. A lovely wine it would pair beautifully with pan seared scallops, fried flounder, or skate dressed with herbs and served with fresh spring peas. Andy Paynter

Baudry 2016 Chinon Cuvée Domaine

The Baudry Chinon "Domaine" is always one of our favorite reds from the Loire Valley and it's a sensational value as well.   All Cabernet Franc of course, a blend of 75% from a parcel in St. Louans, where the thin sandy clay over limestone soils give earthy well-structured wines, with 25% from gravel soils near Cravant, giving supple fruit and freshness. Organic farming, 2 week wild-yeast fermentation, aging in 5 to 10 year-old barrels or cement vats, bottled two Springs after harvest, with minimal added SO2, unfiltered. The Baudrys are making elegant, soulful, natural wines from their superb terroirs in Chinon. The 2016 Cuvée Domaine is a beautiful wine, showing a deep black/red color with complex aromas of black raspberry and red currant with musk, earth, violet and black pepper. On the palate the elegant black and red fruits are joined by cocoa, bitter chocolate, plum skin and intense mineral flavors that are framed in firm acidity. The texture is silky, yet earthy and stony with a bracing mineral finish  and the lingering memory of bright red fruits. In other words, it's a delicious Chinon that will benefit from aeration or a few years in the cellar. Hold a few bottles until 2040 for a nice surprise. David Lillie

Baudry 2016 Chinon Les Grézeaux

"Les Grézeaux" is at the bottom of the slope in Sonnay on a plateau of gravel with sandy clay soils above limestone that slopes gently down towards the Vienne, the vines are 60 to 70 years old. The wine is aged in five to ten year-old barrels with no added SO2, with a tiny amount added prior to bottling. Tasted from barrel in January of 2017 and 2018, the wine showed beautifully with very floral black fruit aromas and lovely density on the palate with black raspberry, spice and earth, firm and balanced but not overly tannic, with lush fruit lingering in the very long finish. This is a bit firmer and should cellar better than the more forward 2015 -  it's a beautiful wine but we have about one-third of the normal allocation, so don't delay. Tasted from bottle in November 2018, the aromas seem brighter, crushed raspberry and black raspberry with stone, spice and floral hints. The palate is tighter and sapid with the mineral components firmly backing the dense black fruits, with stone, citrus and blackberries in the finish. Drink the 2015 now and put this away for five years, or give it a long decant if drinking now. Lovely wine.   David Lillie

Baudry 2017 Chinon Croix Boissée Blanc

This rare and beautiful Chenin Blanc is from the top of the "Croix Boissée" parcel on eroded limestone. The wine ferments very slowly in 500 liter toneaux until dry - less than 2 g/l residual sugar. The 2017 Croix Blanc is superbly elegant with aromas of pear, white peach, almond and lime-flower. The palate is supple, with lovely ripe fruit, but also shows firm acidity and chalky minerals. Delicious now, but ten to fifteen years of aging will be very interesting. Serve with  fish or chicken in sauce and a wide variety of cheeses. David Lillie

Chevalerie 2014 Bourgueil Les Galichets (Arrives 12/8)

We're big fans of the Caslot family at Domane de la Chevalerie, who  make soulful Bourgueils from organic vineyards on their varied terroirs.  The Chevalerie vineyard is on mid-slope Turonian limestone with clay and alluvial sand and gravel topsoils, rich in silex; the vines average about 60 years of age. The 2014 vintage in Bourgueil and Chinon is excellent and the 14s at Domaine de la Chevalerie are absolutely superb!  This wine is a fabulous mix of fruit and minerals, perfectly balanced and with terrific length: dense black/red color, with aromas that blend soil, stone and black-raspberry fruit with hints of cocoa and violet. The palate is dense and supple and intensely mineral - a blend of stone  and cool red fruits lifted by firm acidity, with the bright fruit continuing in the long mineral finish. This is a beautiful Bourgueil that can be enjoyed now with roast chicken, pork dishes, even a steak - or hold for ten to fifteen years for a mature experience. It's a faulous value at $19.99 - congratulations to the Caslots! David Lillie

Guion 2017 Bourgueil Cuvée Domaine

This is another beautiful wine from the shy and affable Stephane Guion who is quietly making some of the best wines in Bourgueil. His 2017 Cuvèe Domaine is from young (15 to 40 year-old) vines on clay/limestone terroir in Benais and is simply delicous, a bit softer and more foward than the vibrant 2016. The wine shows aromas of raspberry and red currant liqueur, violets and citrus - very  ripe but still bright with  earthy hints as well. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh with firm acidity but more supple than usual for the Cuvée Domaine, with chalky, saline mineral flavors framing the ripe red and black fruits, which continue in the long earthy finish. Drink now, served cool, with grilled chicken and pork, charcuterie, green vegetables and mild cheeses, or hold 5 to 8 years for a velvety mature experience. This is a beautiful wine that transcends its price point - Thanks to Stephane Guion!  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

Landron, Jo 2015 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Haute Tradition

La Haute Tradition is a beautiful Muscadet from our friend Jo Landron that is rarely seen in the US. The grapes are from old vines in the "Les Houx" vineyard on iron-rich clay over subsoils of orthogneiss with quartz, giving a dense powerful Muscadet that is aged for about a year in wooden foudres.The wine shows elegant aromas of lemon peel, stone, ripe pear, almond, anise and honeysuckle. While it's similar to Jo's superb Fief du Breil, the palate shows more ripeness -  quite round and full for a Muscadet, with sapid white fruits, citrus, anise and licorice, with terrific density backed by firm acidity. The finish is long and lovely with with bitter lemon, pear, anise and stone. This is a superb Muscadet that should be opened well in advance or decanted if drinking now, or cellar five years then drink until 2035. Serve with fish in sauce, grilled lobster (!), veal, roast chicken and goat or sheep cheeses.  David Lillie

Landron, Jo 2015 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Le Fief du Breil

Jo Landron's Fief du Breil is from a beautiful walled vineyard sloping towards the Sevre, with clay, sand and quartz stones over a bedrock of orthogneiss. The vines average 40 to 50 years of age, the vineyard is certified organic and biodynamic and gives very low yields. This beautiful twine needs aeration or decanting, then shows aromas of grapefrit skin, pear, lime-flower, candied citrus and almond. The palate is perfectly balanced - showing ripe white fruits, almond, anise and stone flavors with firm acidity and pronounced flavors of stone and saline mineral. This is a bit more forward than the granite based wines - really superb as a young wine served with shellfish, grilled fish and roast chicken. As usual with great Muscadet it will age beautifully and pair with monkfish, lobster and goat cheeses. Very little was imported, don't miss it!  David Lillie

Luneau-Papin 2015 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Excelsior Clos Noelles (12/11)

Made only in exceptional vintages, the Luneau-Papin "Excelsior - Clos des Noelles" is one of my favorite Muscadets, usually a bit rounder than the granite-soil "L D'Or" but always aromatically complex and with great intensity and length.   The massale-selection vines were planted in 1936 on a terroir of "micaschistes a deux micas," (lieu-dit "La Plecisiere") exposed full south. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a slow wild yeast fermentation with 36 months of aging on the lees. The 2015 shows subtle, complex aromas of bitter lemon, lime-flower, melon, pear, mint, almond and stone.  The palate is silky, crystalline and dense with white fruits, lemon zest, almond, smoke and wet stone with fabulous length of pear, minerals and taut acidity.  Please decant if drinking now, serve with any elegant seafood dish. Cellar five to fifteen years and serve with richer fish dishes, white meats, rabbit. Beautiful wine!  David Lillie

Roche Bleue 2016 Jasnières Sec

100% Chenin Blanc, from 10 - 25 year-old vines on a slope of clay/silex soils on limestone, certified organic. Slow pressing of whole clusters; long fermentations, most in 4 to 6 year-old barriques, the younger vines in cuve inox; elevage in 6 year-old barrels. More austere than the 2015 vintage, the 2016 Jasnières Sec from Sébastien Cornille is now opening up nicely, showing intriguing aromas of dried pear, pineapple, lime-flower, honey and stone. The palate is lean and mineral with citrus, dried apple and pear, wet stone and fines herbes. The finish is bone dry, mineral and long with firm acidity. Serve this scintillating Chenin Blanc with oysters, grilled and fried seafood, white meats and goat cheeses. Cellaring of five to ten years will reval a locely mature wine...  David Lillie

Roche Bleue 2017 Coteaux du Loir La Belle D'Aunis

A good Pineau d'Aunis is a great choice for Thanksgiving and Sebastien Cornille at Domaine de la Roche Bleue has made a beautiful Belle d'Aunis in 2017. 100% Pineau d'Aunis from old vines in clay with silex soils over limestone in the Coteaux du Loir; 15 day semi-carbonic maceration, slow pressing and assembly with the "jus de goutte" followed by aging in 3 - 4 year-old barrels. The wine shows a bright red/garnet color with lovely aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and rose petal with white pepper and earth. The palate shows chalky, sappy raspberry and tart cherry fruit, light but dense and long with earthy acidity lingering in the finish. Refreshing and delicious now, this should be quite interesting after three to five years in the cellar. Highly recommended.  David Lillie

Sanzay 2015 Saumur-Champigny La Haye Dampierre

Antoine Sanzay is the fifth generation at the family estate in Varrains which includes a large portion of the famous vineyard "les Payeux." The cuvee "La Haye Dampierre" is from a one hectare north-west facing  parcel on sandy clay over limestone tuffeau, certified organic. Fermentation is with wild yeasts in cement vat, aging is in 3 to 6 year-old barrels. The 2015 shows a deep red/black color with fresh  aromas of ripe cassis and blackberry, with earth, musk, black olive and licorice, quite distinctive. The palate shows dense, earthy black fruits, almost bitter, with cocoa, citrus and licorice, the finish is very long with black fruit liqueur, stone and saline minerals. Serve now with a coq au vin, lamb and pork dishes or cellar, perhaps best 2023 to 2030.  David Lillie

Villalin 2017 Quincy Les Grandes Vignes

Sauvignon Blanc has been grown in Quincy at least since the 15th century and produces a particularly distinctive wine on the gravel and silex soils of the Domaine de Villalin's vineyard "Les Grands Vignes." The estate is clearly the finest in Quincy, farming with organic methods, plowing (sometimes with horses), harvesting by hand and fermenting with wild yeasts. The 2017 has just arrived (March 1st 2018) and benefits from aeration, then shows subtle aromas of pear and quince with tart citrus and herbal notes. The palate is refreshing and bright with white fruits, gooseberry, fig and citrus flavors framed in firm acidity. If drinking now, open an hour in advance if possible - this should open up nicely by late spring for delicious drinking with a wide variety of fish and chicken dishes, salads and goat cheeses.

Domaine Parent 2016 Pommard 1er cru Les Epenots

40% whole cluster, from parcels in Grands and Petits Epenots. The 2016 Les Epenots from organic Domaine Parent has a dark ruby robe. The nose is a touch reticent on opening; with air, lovely black fruit and soil aromas emerge with plum, iron, and crushed herbs giving way to game notes. The palate is densely concentrated with flavors of black cherry, plum skin, black tea, and spice over a vibrant and deeply-pitched mineral core, framed by ripe tannins and leading to an admirably long, detailed finish. This has great purity and energy and should age effortlessly. A beautiful Epenots! John McIlwain

Bastide Blanche 2013 Bandol Cuvee Fontanéou

From  a 1.75 hectare single vineyard called "Fontanieu", north facing, on a slope near la Cadiere d' Azur on a unique red clay soil over limestone that naturally provides a mineral tension and raciness complemented by notes of nutmeg and violet. Aged in large foudre, 4,000 bottles produced. The 2014 Fontanéou shows a dark black/purple color and aromas of ripe blackberry and back cherry liqueur with smoky garrigue, citrus peel, violet and cocoa. The palate shows supple, spicy black fruits, bitter chocolate, garrigue, black olive and spice - quite ripe but surprisingly well-balanced with cool, earthy acidity. The finish is long with sappy black fruits and mineral flavors - a beautiful Bandol for current drinking that will soften nicely with 5 to 15 years of cellaring.  David Lillie

Belluard 2016 Vin de Savoie Les Alpes

"Les Alpes" is a blend of two parcels - one close to Dominique's home on marl soils and the other rich in limestone. The wine is fermented and aged in concrete eggs before it's blended in tank and bottled with minimal sulfur. The 2016 is a lovely wine that shows pretty white flowers, tangy pineapple and orange blossom. Salty minerals and tart acidity give this a wonderful texture that is evocative of a briny  Albariño from Northwestern Spain. Amanda Bowman

Jonc Blanc 2016 Bergerac Racine

Isabelle and Franck Pascal make this beautiful natural wine (formerly known as "Classik") from Cabernet and Merlot grown on their Biodynamic estate near Felines, in Bergerac. The wine is aged sur-lie 12 months in barrel, and is bottled without filtration or added sulfur. The color is a dark red/black; the wine shows bright, vivid aromas of ripe cassis and boysenberry liqueur with earth, musk,  violet and graphite. The palate is lush, ripe and vibrant with cassis, prune, chocolate, earth, stone and licorice lifted by firm, cool acidity that continues in the long, bright and sapid finish. Wow, delicious! Serve with grilled pork or beef, a daube provencal, strong cheeses and charcuterie or cellar for 5 to 8 years.

It's a special cuvée of about 100 cases -  the last harvest from a small rented parcel of old vine Semillon that is being torn out by the owner. The wine was vinified and bottled with zero added SO2 and shows ripe aromas of spiced pear, melon, candied citrus, chestnut and lime flower, lifted by bright acidity. The palate is ripe and sapid with pear, quince, stone and white pepper, finishing with preserved lemon and pear with saline minerals. This is a beautiful natural wine to serve with full-flavored cheeses, fish in sauce, white meats and soups or pâtés. Bravo to Franck and Isabelle!  David Lillie

 This is a lovely Biodynamic white made from Sauvignon, Semillon and Sauvignon Gris by Isabelle and Franck Pascal, whose great vineyard work and natural vinifications are producing outstanding wines on their clay/limestone terroir near Bergerac. No SO2 is used except a tiny addition before bottling.  The 2016 Les Sens du Fruit shows lovely aromas of lime-flower, spiced pear, melon, almond and honeyed citrus. The palate is round and ripe with stone and earthy flavors underlying ripe pear and creamy lemon fruit and is backed by firm acidity. The finish is long, ripe and refreshing. This is a complex and delicious natural wine that will shine with shellfish, a platter of cheeses or a fish or chicken in sauce, just delicous!  David Lillie

Laguerre 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Le Ciste Rouge

"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 a layered blend of de-stemmed and whole cluster Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, and Mourvèdre from soils of decomposed granite and gneiss. The grapes are harvested by hand, fermented separately and aged for 12 months in barrel, then assembled in fiber tank before bottling with minimal added sulfur. This vintage is evocative of the 2014 with softer, finer tannins compared to the robust 2015. The aromas are complex and redolent of savory herbs (thyme, garrigue), game, black peppercorn, blood orange, and dark chocolate. The palate is balanced with mouth-coating, powdery tannins, dried herbs, black pepper, and an energetic, long mineral finish from the granite soils. Best served with a slight chill alongside grilled meat, charcuterie, cheese, or veggies roasted with Moroccan spices. This is drinking well now, but should be even better in 5-8 years.  Amanda Bowman

Laguerre 2017 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 2017 is strikingly pure-fruited, with vibrant strawberry and red cherry aromas underpinned by earthy spice, red-currant, and bitter chocolate notes. The peppery tannins and mineral acidity from the high mountain clime form its exquisite structure (Eric says that after 2 years in bottle, you might think it's Pinot Noir). This is a balanced wine that should pair wonderfully with grilled sausages, lentils, or goat cheeses. Open an hour before serving if drinking now, or hold for up to 10 years. Amanda Bowman

Maillet, Jacques 2015 Savoie Mondeuse des Pauvres 1.5 L

It's almost as if it were meant to be that Maillet left us with this Mondeuse as his last! Typically the most structured and dark of Maillet's red offerings, 2015 provided ideal conditions to fully express the depth and potential of these selection massale vines (many of which are over 100 years old!). In the glass, it looks more like Syrah than anything we typically see from the Savoie. Vibrant wild blackberry aromas on the nose, with black cherry and cola notes on the palate, and a finish with notable tannic structure and mineral length. We'd recommend decanting a bit in advance or holding this wine for up to 10 years.  Eben Lillie

Nicolas Mariotti Bindi 2017 Corsica Patrimonio Cantina di Torra Rouge

"Cantina di Torra" is Nicolas Bindi's label for the wines he makes from a collection of 7.5 hectares of north-facing parcels called "Carcu." The vines were planted in 1970, 1996, and 2006 on clay and limestone and were recently converted to organic farming by Nicolas. The 2017 Rouge is 100% whole cluster Niellucciu that spends six months in concrete tank before being bottled unfiltered for an early-drinking, fruit-driven style. Upon opening, the 2017 is a bit tight on the palate and offers aromas of roasted thyme, figs, and dark chocolate. After an hour open, the palate unfurls with supple red fruit, cherry stone, and coffee bean flavors structured with ripe tannins and finishes with plush strawberry notes. The nose also comes alive with charming aromas of strawberry,  tobacco leaf, and violets. Despite being an "entry-level" cuvée, this is a complex, food-friendly find for those curious about Corsican wine at a great price. Amanda Bowman

Organic farming, hand harvesting and wild yeast fermentations. Pale gold color with green hints; aromas of almond, pear, hay, lemon zest, verveine, anise...you get the idea. The palate is very mineral and dense, with firm acidity, showing anise, white fruit liqueur, stone and citrus, supple and long, really a lovely wine and a great value! This versatile wine will accompany shellfish and grilled fish, white meats, salads, goat cheeses and much more...  David Lillie

Turenne 2017 Cotes de Provence Cuvée Camille Rosé

Domaine Turenne, northeast of Bandol in Provence, produces this lovely rosé from 80% Cinsault, 10% Grenache and 10% Syrah, certified organic. The terroir is a unique bed of limestone and sandstone debris with sand/clay stones called "Gavroches" which bring a pronounced minerality and good drainage to the vines. The grapes are harvested by hand, fermented with wild yeasts and the wine is bottled with minimal SO2. The 2017 "Camille" is a pretty, very pale pink/orange color with aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, rose and citrus, with a hint of stone fruits as well. The palate is light and elegant with subtle berry fruits, a hint of citrus and stone, and has nice density and length. This is a light and lovely rosé for all year enjoyment, sipped by itself or with grilled fish, white meats, salade Niçoise and mild cheeses - and it's a fabulous value!  David Lillie

Pranzegg 2013 Mitterberg Schiava / Vernatsch Campill

Of all the wines made by Martin Gojer at Pranzegg, the Schiava is to me the most interesting. Schiava wines are often pleasant thirst-quenchers of little substance but Martin saw greater potential in his vines. Sourced from 50 year-old vines trained in pergola and farmed biodynamically, this is a more profound expression of the grape. The wine is fermented with 30% stem inclusion and macerates for 6 weeks in large conical vats followed by elevage in old oak and cement tank for 10 months. Tart cherries and raspberries leap out on the nose over aromas of lavender, black pepper, and slight hint of leather.  The palate is medium bodied, with great acidity, delicate tannins and a lifted mineral finish.  Martin described it as a “really charming full bodied wine that is on the other hand drinkable,” and I couldn't agree more.  Try it with duck or wild boar, charcuterie, hard cheese, mushroom dishes, or rich pasta.

Varnelli Amaro "Sibilla" 1 Liter

Named after the impressive mountain range in the Southwestern corner of the Marche, this spirit is a must-try for Amaro fans. The flavor profile definitely leans toward the drier, more herbaceous end of the spectrum and will seem quite bitter if you are used to Averna or Montenegro. The botanicals are wood smoked before maceration which adds a degree of complexity seldom found in Amari. Mountain honey is used sparingly to balance the bitter flavors. I have found Sibillia to be a delicious digestive, but also quite delightful at the shore when mixed with tonic and an orange rind. JR

Varnelli L'Anice Secco Speciale 1 Liter 46%

In Italy Varnelli is eponymous with this delicious Anise liqueur. Locally, Varnelli is splashed over espresso. The bottle says secco, but there is a touch of sweetness to the spirit that tempers the intensity of the anise flavor. This stuff makes your average Sambuca look like overly sugary candy water. There is a secret proprietary method for distilling the aniseed that remarkably preserves the anise’s medicinal quality and depth of flavor. The spirit is not bitter, but is still reported by the distillery to aid with digestion. JR

An elegant and suave Châteauneuf and a tremendous value, highly recommended! John McIlwain

Chapelle St. Theodoric 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Le Grand Pin

 Chapelle Saint-Theodoric is a joint venture between the Grangeon family of Domaine de Cristia and their USA importer Peter Weygandt. Le Grand Pin is all Grenache from the Pignan vineyard on sandy soils. Whole-cluster fermentation in concrete vat with wild yeasts, minimal extraction, aged in 4 to 10 year-old large casks. This is a beautiful old-fashioned Chateauneuf that is all finesse and beauty, very Burgundian in style and absoulutely delicious. The wine shows elegant aromas of black cherry, raspberry, violet, roast meat, graphite, citrus and Provencal garrigue, quite complex. There is intense sappy fruit on the palate with elegant cherry, raspberry, dark chocolate and earth. Very long, dense and ripe but balanced and bright, not at all heavy or over-extracted. The finish is lovely with sappy fruit and mineral flavors lingering on the palate. Delicious as a young wine, this should cellar beautifully, best perhaps 2023 - 2030. DL

Clos des Brusquières 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The 2016 Clos des Brusqières is an excellent avalue, and a great example of traditional winemaking in CDP. "Grenache-inspired plum red colour. The bouquet is a true southern presence, dried black raisins, dates and figs in the mix, a floral note, a core of sweetness. It will become a pretty classic Châteauneuf nose, with good variety, in time. The palate rumbles along on a smoky, spiced trail, has a good, healthy kick, with unbridled tannins running around its compressed matter. The long, secure aftertaste is peppery for now. This is a good, traditional Châteauneuf, with character, captures the terroir..." DrinkRhone

Clos des Papes 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape 1.5 Liter

"...steady red robe; has a spiced, flinty, fast impact nose, with a strong Mourvèdre influence, shows red fruit in behind – the bouquet is wide and crouched down, complex and varied. The red fruit air is en finesse. Really pretty fruit inside it. There is bustle in its tannins, which drive it along well. Very persistent, long, displays heat on the finish. Very good. 'Good total acidity this year, better than 2010 - it is balanced.'  Vincent Avril." From Drink Rhone (2010)  As of fall 2018, the 2009 Clos des Papes should be opening nicely and will drink beautifully for another ten to fifteen years. DL

Clos du Joncuas 2006 Gigondas 3 bottle max please

What do we have here? Old-fashioned Gigondas? We are seldom fortunate enough to taste these.

Clos du Joncuas farms organically, vinifies whole-cluster in concrete, and does élevage in old large casks. The color of the 2006 is a bright intense ruby. The nose is floral, black-fruited, plummy with savory hints of animale and garrigue. This evolves into spicy and earthy notes without losing any sense of ripe-not overripe-fruit. There is good richness to the palate; the ripe fruit is at the forefront with a significant counter-balance of earth. Black pepper, violets, leather follow on the mostly-resolved, long finish. There is a hint of dryness, perhaps from the old oak, but no sense of austerity. Consider it refined rusticity.

Was lovely paired with grilled lamb and Borlotti beans.

Creve Coeur (Pablo Hocht) 2016 Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet

(From 60 to 70 year-old vines in "Le Planis," 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre) The 2016 Creve Coeur Sablet has all the elements we love in sothern Rhone wines: organic/biodynamic farming, old school fermentation in foudre and concrete, stem inclusion. Dark-toned, nearly heady aromatically, with black and blue fruits, lavender, blackberry, cherry pit on the nose. Dense purple robe. Plum, cassis, blackberry, black pepper and garrique on the palate. Real sense of the structural elements from the stems and limestone soils. Medium tannins and good poise for a decidedly southern wine. Long finish. Good energy for the concentration with a fine core of minerality within. Fabulous with pan-roasted lambchops and sheep's milk cheese. Delicious now, but should gain in complexity with time in the bottle. John McIlwain

Domaine des Amphores 2016 IGP des Collines Rhodanniennes Detour Blanc

The Detour Blanc is a a beautiful blend of Roussanne, Clairette, and Marsanne from the Collines Rhodaniennes. The nose is fresh and lively with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, nectarine, white peach, honeysuckle and acacia. The palate is soft, round, and plush, with a hint of an herbal character, maybe sage, to compliment the aromatic fruit and floral elements of the wine. A perfect pairing for picnic sandwiches, summer salads, and carefree evenings on the patio. Oskar Kostecki

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.

Les Bruyères (David Renaud) 2015 Crôzes-Hermitage Les Croix Vieilles Vignes

David Reynaud's "Domaine les Bruyères" has been certified organic and Biodynamic for many years. "Les Croix" is from a parcel of 6o year-old vines on a sandy clay/limestone terroir, covered in small stones. The grapes are hand harvested into small crates, vinification is in cement vat with wild yeasts, aging is in four and five year-old barrels. The wine shows a bright red/black color with vibrant, cool aromas of morello cherry, blueberry and cassis, with black olive, licorice and floral notes. The palate shows darker black fruits, with licorice, garrigue and mineral flavors. The texture is silky but framed in firm acidity, with grippy black fruits in the earthy finsh. This is a serious Crozes that is quite ripe and delicious for early drinking, but 5 to 8 years in the cellar should really make it sing. Drink until 2030.

The 2007 Worthy Park takes everything the 2005 has and magnifies it. Rich and full-bodied, this is a tremendous rum, almost overloading the senses. Waves of leather, vanilla, caramel, petrol, banana, overripe pineapple, and apricot wash over the nose and palate. Bottled at 59%, you might want to reach for a small ice cube, but at the same time, diluting any of the flavors of this powerhouse would be such a shame. Oskar Kostecki

Brooklyn Kura Junmai Ginjo Nama #14 750ml

A new batch of the Junmai Ginjo Nama, and one I am particularly excited about. Since tasting some of the first releases from Brooklyn Kura in the beginning of this year, this particular release shows more nuance and depth, and a desire for constant improvement. Brandon extended the fermentation times for this batch, going for a 40 day fermentation as opposed to the more common 30-35 days. He also forwent a sterile filtration this time, leading to a brighter, fresher expression. This sake is aromatically very complex, with cantaloupe, cantaloupe rind, banana, citrus, lemon rind, yellow flowers, yogurt, and a slightly green, grassy quality all present on the nose. The palate is bright, with higher acidity than earlier batches, but still has the mouth-coating quality I've come to associate with Brooklyn Kura sake. It is drier than previous versions, but still comes in at a Sake Meter Value (Nihonshudo) of -1, making it just a tiny touch off-dry, though this is balanced fantastically by the vibrant acidity. This sake is perfect as an aperitif, or with light summer fare, salads, crudo, or creamy cheeses. Oskar Kostecki

Ryujin Oze Junmai Sake 720ml

Ryujin Shuzo creates the Oze no Yukidoke line of sake in Gunma Prefecture, just to the north of Tokyo. This small brewery has a long history, going all the way back to 1597, and creates very crisp and mellow sake, mostly due to the very soft water coming from underground sources close to the brewery. With notes of steamed rice, anise, melon, banana, pineapple, and a super dry finish, this is a classic junmai to be enjoyed in any occasion. Oskar Kostecki

Yuho Yama-Oroshi Junmai "Rhythm of the Centuries" 720ml

The term "Yama-oroshi" refers to the old school method of continuously ramming large poles into vats of rice, water and koji, creating a sort of mash, which historically was believed to be necessary to allow the koji to convert starch into sugar. It wasn't until the early 20th century that it was discovered this koji process would take place regardless, saving workers countless hours of labor. A few breweries still use this time and labor-intensive method, modernly known as "kimoto", which allows ambient yeast and bacteria to interact with the moto (mixture of rice, water, and koji) before commercial yeasts are used, creating a richer, more savory and sometimes "funkier" profile. Yuho Rhythm of the Centuries goes one step further, and the brewery ages this sake in glass for around four years before release, to round out the flavor profile. This sake is very rich, with warm earthy notes of toasted sesame and an umami, slightly mushroom character. Enjoy with heartier foods. Oskar Kostecki

Kilchoman Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisk Machir Bay

Kilchoman is the first new distillery on the famed island of Islay for 124 years. The concept is a "farm distillery" that houses every aspect of the production, from growing the grain to bottling the barrels. The results are fantastic with soft peat and salty citrus flavors. 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

Gonzalez Byass NV Jerez Una Palma Fino 500ml

All sherries in the Las Palmas Collection begin their lives on track to become Tio Pepe, which averages 4-4.5 years of age. A fascinating variety of flor activity and microclimates throughout Tio Pepe's soleras (totaling approximately 20,000 barrels) creates especially pure and fine expressions that set certain barrels of fino apart. The tradition was to mark these wines with a "palma" and to trace their development over time; two, three, and four palmas designate increasing fineness with age. The 2015 selection of Una Palma was pulled from three barrels of fino in a solera of 142 casks averaging 6 years old. Andrew Sinclair from Gonzalez Byass notes that this is a higher-alcohol style of fino that was typical prior to the 1960s (fermented to 11% alcohol and then fortified to 15.5%). Soft, rIch aromas of flor, beeswax and chamomile, with hints of peppercorn and banana leaves contrast with the bracing freshness of the palate, full of tingly lemon oil, concentrated yellow fruit flesh and tart and bitter golden plum peels.

Matías i Torres 2016 La Palma Tinto Negramoll

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!

On the nose, the wine displays tart citrus and tropical fruit, savory, white florals, earth, and Moroccan spice notes. On the palate, the wine is vibrant with tension and some tannins. Pair this wine with Asian-inspired food, Jambalaya, paella or Mexican food. Caroline Coursant

La Clarine Farm 2016 Sierra Foothills Syrah "sumu kaw"

I didn’t want to be the one to write anything about this wine but Eben talked me into it. I don’t wax as poetic about wine as most people, but Eben said “You don’t have to. What did it remind you of? A favorite song?” And that’s when it hit me. After drinking this wine I woke up singing “Didn’t I” by Kelly Clarkson with the line “Didn’t I give you everything” repeating in my head. And it hit me: yes this wine did give me everything, everything I’d expect from a natural Syrah from California. I love how alive this wine is and how it screams of fresh blackberries, green olives with herbs and some roasted meat. The weight is medium, and the acidity is a bit bright. It’s by no means a French wine but it doesn’t have to be and it’s not trying to be. This wine is young and would need time or open for a few hours, but in time it will…give you everything.    John L.

Marcus Bokisch, the grower who owns the eponymous Bokisch vineyard located in the Sacramento Valley north of Lodi, is specifically attempting to grow grapes that work in the hot and sunny climate of the Central Valley. Graciano is generally a rare blending grape in Rioja, but is known for retaining high acidity even in the very hottest places. Fantastic fruit and great concentration are wedded to great acid structure and a wonderful aromatic profile full of pomegranate seeds, cranberries, and a dense, ferrous minerality. Drink with pot-roast, barbecue ribs, hamburgers, or mole tacos. Andrew Farquhar

Wiemer, Hermann J. 2017 Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc

Ideally suited to cool climate growing, Cabernet Franc is quickly gaining a reputation as a principal red wine grape in the Finger Lakes, where long, brisk autumns allow for slow ripening. Bright, ripe, fresh, and medium-bodied, this is a classic Cabernet Franc, with much of the minerality that we love so much. Pretty, a bit funky, but with great red fruit character, this is a lighter, fresher style of Cabernet Franc. Great structure and fine, chewy tannins make this a fantastic wine to pair with many different dishes, from chicken to game to mezze. I believe Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes will be a hot topic soon, and this is an excellent introduction to the style. Andrew Farquhar

Early Mountain Vineyards 2015 Virginia Quaker Run

The Quaker Run Vineyard, planted in 1999, is located on the eastern flank of the Blue Ridge Mountains, nearly touching Shenandoah National Park. This Chardonnay's spontaneous fermentation lasted for nearly 11 months and then rested on the lees for an additional seven months. Big, round, and extraordinarily texturally dense, this wine has fine leesy, yeasty, bready character that is elegantly interpolated through the fine white peach and meyer lemon fruit core. This is a big classic Chardonnay, though it has fine acid structure that adds to a long, slightly funky, lingering finish. Andrew Farquhar

The original vineyard planted by Mr. Wiemer himself, this wine is from a parcel farmed biodynamically. Cold spontaneous fermentation takes place over the course of months. 65% of the grapes picked two weeks late allow for this wine's beautiful mellow sweetness. 20% fermented in 1000L Hungarian barrels. This is an extraordinarily pretty wine, with delicate, expressive acidic structure laid over with a number of layers of beautiful fruit. Notes of peach, Meyer lemon, and white flowers all mesh together in harmonious accord. Pair with Peking duck, fresh fruit, or blue cheese. Andrew Farquhar

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.

High Wire Distilling New Southern Revival 4-Grain Bourbon 750

Made from a four-grain mash bill of heirloom white corn, Red Winter Wheat, malted barley, and Carolina Gold Rice from the famed Anson Mills in Columbia, South Carolina, this is uniquely southern Bourbon. It spends eighteen months in barrel and yields a spirit that is happily grain-forward (when you use such high-quality grain, why wouldn’t you want it to be?), with secondary aromas of malted milk chocolate, baked apricot, and sweet spice. The palate is smooth, yet earthy and spicy, with fruit returning on the finish along with apple butter and nutmeg. This is a delicious experience for all whiskey lovers. 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

West Cork The Pogues Irish Whiskey 750 ml

One of our favorite blended Irish whiskeys, this bottling comes from the small, independent  West Cork Distillery, and is indeed inspired by the legendary folk-punk band. A blend of 10 year old single malt aged in ex-bourbon casks and 5 year grain whiskey aged in sherry cask. Triple distilled in the classic Irish style, this is light and floral with soft grain notes and a hint of dried fruit and baking spice. Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 375mL

This year's single-cask of Wigle rye is an absolute powerhouse! Put into a 53 gallon, Char Level 3 barrel on March 6th, 2014 at 125 proof (the maximum allowed under law) and emptied on October 11th, 2018, this whiskey spent 4.5 years aging in Wigle's Pittsburgh warehouse, more than double our previous releases.  It was distilled from 95% rye and 5% malted barley, sourced from local farms undergoing organic certification. With a little wider cuts taken, this whiskey is rich and ebullient both on the nose and palate, with notes of rye spice, baking spices, vanilla, caramel, dried apricots, grilled peaches, burnt orange peel, dried cherries, cherry pit, spun sugar, perfumed cedar, and a slightly earthy, mossy quality. Incredibly complex and with a beautiful rich texture, this drinks really well at the 55% abv, but a few drops of water really help bring out some of the fruitier notes, a whiff of honey, and a delicate floral note. This rye has a very long and lingering finish, and is a wonderful way to round off an evening. Oskar Kostecki
