Austria

Altenburger, Markus 2016 Burgenland Rosé vom Kalk

Organically-farmed Blaufränkisch grown on limestone (kalk) soils outside of the town of Jois in Burgenland, Austria. Refreshing notes of juicy raspberries, ripe strawberries, and cantaloupe mingle with bright acidity and a crisp mineral finish. Pair with a large helping of moules-frites, a rare tuna burger, fried chicken, you name it! Cari Bernard

Schloss Gobelsburg 2017 Kamptal Cistercien Rosé

Pale pink in the glass, the nose hints at a stony minerality confirmed on the palate. This blend of Zweigelt, St. Laurent, and Pinot Noir is crisp with scintillating acidity and flavors of fresh green and red strawberries, Seville orange, white raspberries, white stone, and lemon juice. A touch more giving than the 2016 vintage, and still incredibly brisk! Cari Bernard

Beaujolais

Coquelet 2016 Chiroubles

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 is a particularly pretty, old fashioned Beaujolais! Weighing in at 12% alcohol, the wine shows gorgeous aromas of raspberry and rose with spice and citrus notes. The palate shows sappy raspberry fruit, really lovely, ripe and persistent but light and balanced with refreshing acidity. There is nice length of earthy berry fruit in the long finish. Serve cool with chicken and white meats, and anything grilled this summer. Lovely wine! David Liliie

Dutraive (Domaine de la Grand Cour) 2016 Brouilly Cuvée VV

From a small hillside parcel of 50-plus year-old vines in Brouilly, certified organic. Carbonic maceration with no addition of SO2, followed by foot-pressing, gravity fed into large barrels or foudres for aging. Light Garnet/black color. The 2016, at 12.5% alcohol, is back to the style of the lovey 2014, showing pretty aromas of raspberry and red currant with bright citrus notes and  smells of earth and stone. The palate is light but intense with bright raspberry and tart cherry flavors over firm acidity with citrus and earth. The finish is refreshing with lingering citrus and mineral flavors. Serve with charcuterie, fish in sauce, chicken and pork dishes or hold for 5 to 8 years as this should be a very pretty mature wine.  David Lillie

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

Guillot, Julien (Vignes du Maynes) 2016 Beaujolais Ultimatum Climat

Known for the Vignes du Maynes wines from Cruzille, in the south of Burgundy, Julien Guillot has had the chance over the years to take long term leases on a few vineyards south of Macon in the Beaujolais. Due to issues with frost and hail in 2016, and to the loss of a rental vineyard to an old owner who decided to tear out vines, this vintage of the "Climat" is a combination of grapes from Chenas and from a vineyard called "Pierres Bleues" which is near Villefranche. Chenas is all granite, and Pierres Bleues is limestone. The wines fermented and aged separately and were blended a few months before bottling. From what I percieve, there's hint of granitic spiciness from Chenas, and some lift and energy from the limestone site.  There's lovely fresh rasberry fruit on the attack, and a very mineral, stony finish. Fresh and elegant at 12.5%.   Eben Lillie

Couronneau 2015 Bordeaux Superieur

(On Sale through June 9th Was $17.99) This 100% Merlot wine from Château Couronneau, an estate certified organically and biodynamically since 2009 and 2011 respectively, is a fun full-bodied Bordeaux. With a bouquet of ripe plums, blackberries, dark cherries, violet, and vanilla cream notes, the wine reminds me of summer times in the South of France when I was a child. On the palate, the wine has a beautiful density with good acidity and firm tannin. A great value, this wine will be the perfect companion to any barbecued meat or a classic steak and frites.

La Grave Figeac 2014 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

What a beautiful fresh Bordeaux! Certified organic since 2012, this estate has been making outstanding wines since the beginning, showing the expertise of the Clauzel family and superb terroir. This 2014 wine (a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is elegant and vibrant with a gorgeous bouquet of black and red berries, plum, oriental spices, leather and cedar box notes. On the palate, the wine is bright with acidity and minerality, and shows supple tannins with a long fresh finish. This is a vibrant Bordeaux which can accompany casual to fancy meals. Pair this wine with hamburgers, seared lamb, or with more elaborated dishes, such as, roast beef or braised duck.  A delicious wine  to drink now or cellar it for a few years. Caroline Coursant

Les Trois Petiotes 2012 Cotes de Bourg

This delicious wine comes from the Domaine Les Trois Petiotes, a 3-hectare estate in the Côtes de Bourg, a proponent of "less is more" on the field and in the cellar. The grapes, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, are fully destemmed, fermented in stainless steel tank, and then aged in neutral oak for a few years with minimal addition of sulfur at bottling. Lighter and more vibrant than the 2011 vintage, the wine is full of energy and freshness with a beautiful smooth texture coming from the supple tannins.  Notes of red plum and cherry, green tobacco, mint and rose petals are prevalent on the nose. On the palate, the superb minerality (sand, clay, limestone and gravel soils) and bright acidity lift the wine. Pair this wine with barbecued meat, steak, and roasted lamb. This is a perfect Bordeaux to enjoy during the summer! Caroline Coursant

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

Ravignan 1985 (Bottled 2017) Bas-Armagnac 32 years old

This is the “new” release from one of our favorite estates in Bas-Armagnac. Ravignan spares no expense in creating France’s premier brandy. French oak barrels are air-dried for a full seven years before being filled with a spirit distilled to the very low 50% alcohol. After almost 30 years the spirit reduces in strength to about 42 percent, but gains in complexity and develops a beautiful flavor of roasted hazelnuts, wood smoke and a touch of prune. Perfect for 1985 birth years! John Rankin                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The new 2017 bottling shines once again. The palate is thick and viscous, with notes of salted caramel and shaved dark chocolate transitioning to a beautiful dried fruit character of apricots, prunes and sultana. A hint of rancio peaks out from underneath the leather and woodspice, with a faint whiff of pickled ume plums and balsamic. Intense, but elegant, this is Bas-Armagnac at its finest, and one of the best values in the store. Oskar Kostecki

Burgundy White

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

Just delicious in 2015, the "En Rimont" shows aromas of dried pear and apple, almond and stone with hints of spice, citrus and honeysuckle. The palate is quite elegant with earthy white fruits, hay, almond, white pepper and citrus. Quite supple and pure (vinified with minimal SO2) this is a very food-friendly wine that will accompany full-flavored fish and shellfish dishes, chicken and white meats and a wide variety of cheeses.

A new wine from Julien Guillot at the Clos des Vignes du Maynes, the 2016 Macon "Clos Fourneau" is 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Gris. The wine shows floral, honeyed aromas of pear, white peach and candied citrus. Ripe stone fruits on the palate are wrapped in bright citrusy acids with chalky mineral flavors that continue in the finish with  lemon and stone. Try this with melon and prosciutto or a full flavored fish such as halibut or monkfish. This will improve with a long decant or three to five years in the cellar.

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

Vignes du Maynes 2016 Macon-Cruzille Aragonite

From 40 to 80 year-old massale-selection Chardonnay vines high on the slope in Cruzille on limestone with a great deal of calcium carbonate crystal (aragonite) with thin topsoils of clay and silica, never treated with chemicals, certified biodynamic. Fermentation is in 600 liter barrels with wild yeasts, aged 10 months sur-lie without racking, no SO2 until a small dosage (10 - 20 mg/l) before bottling. The 2016 "Aragonite" is a superb, well structured white Burgundy that will age beautifully. The wine shows elegant aromas of pear, lemon confit, lime-flower, toasted almond and stone, really lovely. The palate is intensely mineral and framed in firm acidity, with white fruits, citrus, spice and stone flavors. The living soils of the Clos give this wine an extra dimension of acidity and saline minerals that will contribute to a long life for this lovely wine, perhaps best 2025-2035, but it's delicious as a young wine as well. Highly recommended.  David Lillie

The 1998 Ambonnay Brut has long been a staff favorite and this disgorgement does not disappoint. Brillliant, golden yellow in color and showing a finely-beaded mousse, this offers one of the two most expressive aromatic profiles of this current Beaufort lineup. Aromas of Mirabelle plums, toasted hazelnuts, and crème brulée transition to notes of Jonagold apples, cinnamon, and wild flowers. The palate is generous and expansive and carries tones of brazil nuts, greengages, and irises that crescendo to a fine, zippy finish. This is complex and delicious Champagne!  David Salinas

Beaufort, André NV Champagne Grand Cru Brut Reserve 375ml (2013)

We're fans of the Champagnes of Beaufort for a number of reasons. The farming at this historic Domaine is impeccable and the winemaking is classical and refreshingly old school. The 2013 base Ambonnay Grand Cru in handy half bottle is a pocket-sized example of Beaufort's distinctive character. Aromas of ginger, brioche, ripe golden fruit and almond lead to similar flavors on the elegant, generous and honeyed palate which finishes with beautifully firm acidity and mineral flavors. This has the brightness and acidity to accompany oysters and shellfish, but enough weight and grip to serve with grilled fish, caviar and goat cheeses.  Also, please note that while the label reads "Polisy" it is in fact the Ambonnay Grand Cru Reserve.

Bérêche 2014 Coteaux Champenois Rouge Les Montées Montagne de Reims

A blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from the Montagne de Reims, partially destemmed, fermented in barrel, and bottled without fining or filtration. The 2014 Bérêche Coteaux Champenois offers aromas of wild cherry, black raspberry, brambles and roasted nuts. The palate shows good density with dark fruits, crushed herbs, an underlying iodine-like soil note, and a fairly packed and somewhat dense lingering  finish. This is a bit inscrutable at the moment and will benefit with a couple of hours of air or some time in the cellar. All the elements are here for further development: a serious Coteaux worthy of mid-term cellaring. John McIlwain

Bérêche, Raphael NV (2014 Base) Champagne Brut Nature Beaux Regards Chardonnay

Les Beaux Regards is a blend of two parcels of Chardonnay in Ludes on the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims planted in 1964 and 1970. The loamy clay soils produce a Champagne more vinous in character, rather than exclusively taut and chalky. The 2014 displays lemon and apple blossom and stone fruit aromas,  with delicate notes of spice and  citrus peel following. The palate is distinctly nervy and racy, with overtly stony notes, cool notes of orange oil and lemon balm and a long tangy, expressive finish. There's a penetrating minerality here matched by equally vivacious fruit. Delicious! (Dosage 3g/l., disg. 01/18) John McIlwain

Bérêche, Raphael NV (2014 Base) Champagne Extra Brut Rive Gauche

The Rive Gauche bottling from Bérêche is 100% Pinot Meunier from vines planted in 1969 in the north facing parcel Le Misy in Port-á-Binson near Mareuil-le Port in the Marne. The north-facing slopes and old vines keep in check Meunier's tendency to over-exuberance, preserving the mineral expression of the variety. The 2014 exhibits floral, citrus peel, stone fruit scents on the nose with aromas of acacia blossom, peach skin, and marzipan dominating. The palate is ripe, but racy, with flavors of white peach, orange oil, ginger, and salted plum on a mouth-watering, driving, insistent finish.  For fans of the Rive Gauche bottling, this is more linear than the generous 2013 edition, but a compelling expression of this terroir.

Billard 2015 Bourgogne Cuvée Milliane VV

(On Sale through June 9th Was $21.99) Domaine Gabriel Billard is now directed by Claudie Jobard. The four hectares of parcels in and around Beaune and Pommard have a very high percentage of old vines. While not organic, only natural composts are used, with minimal treatments in the vines and regular light tilling ("griffage") and wild-yeast fermentations. The 2015 Cuvee Milliane "Vieilles Vignes" is from vines near Pommard and shows complex aromas of ripe black cherry and strawberry, with violets, orange peel, earth and smoke. There are dense red fruits on the palate, quite sappy, also very earthy and mineral, and quite balanced for a 2015 at 13% alcohol. The finish is long and well-structured - the wine will obviously benefit from 3 to 5 years of aging, but it's quite delicious now in it's intense youth. This is a "serious" Bourgogne rouge at a great price!

Rateau 2016 Beaune Cuvée Ronde

When life gives you lemons (or the worst frost in decades) you make a cuvée from your lieux-dits most devastated by Mother Nature, whic is exactly what Rateau did with the 2016 vintage. Fortunately the resulting Cuvée  Ronde is delicious! Strawberry, pomegranate, crushed herbs and beetroot on the nose. On the racy, lithe palate flavors of wild strawberry, red currant, chalk, and raspberry seed, vie for attention with savory notes of thyme, freshly turned soil, and black tea on a lifted, fresh, cool-toned, succulent finish. Not a bruiser, but there’s loads of charm, sap, and detail here. Old-fashioned in the best sense and a vibrant expression of 2016. Try this with grilled salmon or roasted chicken. John McIlwain

Bart 2017 Marsannay Rosé

Domaine Bart in Marsannay made no rosé in 2016 due to the very low yields, so we're very glad to have this lovely Pinot Noir available again from the 2017 vintage. The wine shows a bright pink color and pretty aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry, rose and citrus. The palate shows ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit with earth and mineral notes, as befits the limestone terroir of Marsannay. The finish is long and refreshing. This is light enough to serve with fish dishes and salads but has the depth and complexity to accompany grilled foods this summer.

New York Distilling Company Dorothy Parker American Gin 750ml

And now for something completely different… Our friends at New York Distilling under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway are making some of New York’s most delicious gins.  The Dorothy Parker, named for the legendarily sharp-tongued wit of New York’s Algonquin Round Table, boasts decidedly American style with un-traditional botanicals like hibiscus and cinnamon.  Of course we are talking gin here, so there’s a nice dry juniper kick as well.  I think that this makes for a very interesting twist on a gin and tonic.  More adventurous home bartenders may want to use it to give the classic gin cocktails a new angle.  John Rankin

Canonica, Giovanni 2014 Barolo Paiagallo (arrives 7/2)

Paiagallo 2014 shows a lot of complexity for such a young wine - at first very savory and ripe, then lovely bright cherry fruit on the palate and finish.This is clearly a wine for the cellar, as behind (or perhaps under?) the beautiful clarity of fruit is that brooding core of material that will take years to fully express itself. Quite a majestic wine, and a triumph for the vintage. Jamie Wolff

Produttori del Barbaresco 1970 Barbaresco Riserva Moccagatta

The 1970 Barbaresco Riserva Moccagatta from one of the my favorite Piedmont producers is showing beautifully with a compelling blend of earthy old Nebbiolo aromas, resolved tannins, and still lively fruit. The tension between the sweet and savory on the nose is beguiling, while the palate has evolved to the point where the fruit and earthy flavors  are supported by the structure, rather than dominated by it. Given time to blossom (we strongly advocate double decanting after lunch for dinner service) this is the perfect partner for braised meat with polenta or risotto with truffles. This is a lovely wine and a truly special treat for lovers of aged Nebbiolo. (Tasted 2/25/16) John McIlwain

Cantine Barbera 2017 Rosato Menfi 'La Bambina'

Cantine Barbera, located in Menfi on Sicily’s southwestern coast, is producing wonderful wines from the indigenous varieties of the area like this savory rosato made from Nero d’Avola.  The grapes are harvested before the sun rises to protect the acidity from the Sicilian heat, quickly destemmed, and softly pressed without skin contact.  Fermentation is triggered with a pied-de-cuve and is conducted in steel where the wine further rests for three months with weekly lees stirring.  To me it speaks as a classic Italian rosato: not overtly fruity, rather it is savory and herbal with a quiet backing of fruit. Briney notes come out on the nose with sage, mint and wild herbs over tart strawberry fruit and orange zest.  The palate is fairly full with plenty of acidity and slight tannins with flavors of citrus pith, and strawberry fruit. This is a wine well suited to food pairing.  I drank it alongside a pizza topped with olives, anchovies, wilted radicchio, and mozzarella but it would be great with charcuterie, olives, briney cheese, greek food, seared tuna, or lemon chicken.  Andy Paynter

Contra Soarda 2017 Breganze Vespaiolo Soarda Bianco

Contra Soarda consistently produces excellent Vespaiolo wines in the Veneto, and the 2017 vintage is the best I’ve tasted yet. Vespaiolo derives its name from the wasps (vespa) that feed on the grapes as sugar accumulates later in the season. The wines are often made into a passito style sweet wine but this wine shines as a rich, dry wine with bountiful aromatics. The vines are planted on a decomposed volcanic soil at high density to limit yields, and are fermented with native yeast in steel.  The nose is quite effusive with scents of apple blossom, white peach, orchard fruit, and ripe citrus. Fairly full on the palate with a rich texture, the initial flavors of juicy apple and peach give the impression of sweetness which is lifted away by high acidity and a mineral finish. Intense and refreshing, this wine would pair well with asparagus and egg dishes, scallops, shrimp, washed-rind or fresh cheese, or with a vegetable risotto. Andy Paynter

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

Grandes Vignes 2014 Vin de France Et Ce Terra Blanc

Chenin Blanc fermented and aged in amphora with no sulfur added. It's not a common occurrence, but we're very happy to have the opportunity to share this unique wine. The nose is floral, and stony, with hints of stone fruit, but the really fascinating aspect of the wine is the texture. Just letting the wine sit on the palate, I experienced earthiness (possible, but rare for a white wine), crystalline acidity, density in the mid-palate, and a long, mineral finish. Highly recommended for Chenin aficionados and those who are interested in the growing category of amphora wines.   Eben Lillie

Jousset, Lise et Bertrand 2015 Montlouis-sur-Loire Clos Renards - Singulier

We are very proud to offer the beautiful wines of Lise and Bertrand Jousset, whose goal is to make "living wines" from living soils and healthy vines in a balanced environment. All of their wines share a vivacity and natural complexity making them a joy to drink - due to great farming and careful vinifications with minimal intervention and minimal or zero added sulfur.  The Montlouis "Singulier - Clos aux Renards" is a dry Montlouis made from 60 to 80 year-old Chenin vines on clay soils called "Aubuis" over Turonian limestone. All cellar functions are by gravity without pumping, fermentation is in two and three year-old 400 and 600 liter barrels.  This is a wonderfully elegant Chenin Blanc showing a bright pale-gold color and beautiful aromas of creamy citrus, dried pear, fresh  herbs, stone and smoke. There is an impression of sweetness  but the palate is dry with ripe pear, peach and apricot fruit with stone and mineral flavors, chalky texture and fabulous length.  Beautiful now, it will develop nicely with ten to fifteen years of cellaring.  David Lillie

Jousset, Lise et Bertrand 2017 Vin de France Mosquito Pet Nat

"Mosquito" scratches that itch for a sublime bottle of thirst-quenching bubbles. The 2017 is made from Muscat grapes that Domaine Danjou-Banessy (Roussillon) generously gifted to the Jousset's after they lost most of their harvest to hail and frost. This is a pet-nat made by friends to share with friends. At 12% it's just a touch off-dry with aromas of exotic orange citrus, nutmeg, salty peach and honeycomb. There is a touch of Chenin Blanc which lends flavors of juicy  pear and tart acidity. Try it with tangy goat cheeses, salads, or on its own. Amanda Bowman

Terres Blanches (Benoit Blet) 2017 Vin de France BB Rose

Benoit Blet of Domaine des Terres Blanches, near Chinon, has created a subtle and delicious rosé in 2017, from organic Gamay grown on a unique terroir of sandstone. It's a "direct-press" rosé, fermented slowly with wild yeasts, showing delicate, complex aromas of raspberry and strawberry, with orange peel, stone and spice. The palate is bone dry with earth and stone flavors underlying lovely raspberry and cranberry fruit, with hints of peach and rose as it opens. The finish is silky and refreshing and quite long with berry fruits and mineral flavors. Lovers of the Baudry rosé will appreciate this delicate and delicious wine. "Accompagne les crudités, les viandes blanches et les charcuteries, ou tout simplement pour le plaisir de partager un verre entre amis" says Benoit - Serve with crudités, white meats and charcuterie or very simply for the pleasure of sharing a glass with friends." We couldn't agree more!  David Lillie

Guillot, Julien (Vignes du Maynes) 2016 Mâcon Rouge

Julien Guillot of the Clos des Vignes du Maynes has made a superb Macon Rouge in 2016, from organic grapes, and vinified without SO2. The wine shows a quite dense black/red color with aromas of ripe blackberry, candied cherry, violet, citrus and white pepper. The palate is dense but balanced and sapid with blackberry and cherry fruit lifted by firm acidity. The finish is very long with saline minerals and berry fruits and refreshing acidity. This is a somewhat intense but beautiful and complex Gamay that will be superb with grilled foods this summer and should develop nicely over the next few years.  David Lillie

Vignes du Maynes 2016 Bourgogne Cuvée Auguste

The Vignes du Maynes "Cuvée Auguste" is a superb Burgundy made from massale selection Pinot Fin planted in 1964. The parcel, high on the slope in Cruzille, is on Bathonian limestone with a great deal of calcium carbonate crystal (aragonite) with thin topsoils of clay and silica. Yields of 20 hl/ha, semi-carbonic  and normal alcoholic fermentations, with zero additives, bottled under nitrogen. Yields were quite low in 2016, but as with much of Burgundy, the 2016 Cuvee Auguste is a classic, well structured wine that should age beautifully. The wine shows beautiful aromas of tart cherry, rose, earth, orange peel and spice. The palate is dense and earthy with a core of deep berry fruit, silky and elegant with notes of citrus, licorice and roast meat. The finish is long and sapid with chalky minerals, citrus, spice and berry fruits. This is a gorgeous living wine - decant a few hours if drinking now or cellar five to ten years or more.  A very small quantity is available of this rare and beautiful wine.   David Lillie

A beautiful, pure expression of Malbec by Julien Libert at Combel-la-Serre, this comes from a limestone parcel with 35 year-old vines.  20% of the fruit is  whole cluster and the wine is aged in cement.The 2016 Pur Fruit du Causse is just that, beautiful supple pure fruit - the color is quite dark and coats the glass, showing deep aromas of blackberry liqueur, quite bright and fresh, with hints of stone and earth. The palate is lush with blackberry and black cherry liqueur, lifted by cool acidity, really delicious! The finish is bright and refreshing making this a great match for charcuterie and grilled meats, chicken and mild cheeses -  and lovely to slurp by itself, served quite cool! Bravo to Julien Libert for this juicy, fresh and delightful wine!

A terrific value from Haut-Savoie! "Quintessence" is made from 100% organic chasselas sourced for Dominique Lucas' new négociant project. A simple and immensely pleasurable wine with summery aromas of wildflower honey, bergamot, and golden fruit. The palate is light and fresh with exquisite mineral tension beneath subtle flavors of apricot and alpine herbs. The finish is persistent, salty and delicately mineral. A lovely wine to serve as an apero or pair with salads, white fish, or ham sandwiches. Amanda Bowman

Highly recommend with a slight chill. This should be perfect alongside goat cheese, sausages, or hearty lentils. Amanda Bowman

Enfants Sauvages 2014 Cotes Catalanes Roi des Lézards

Roi des Lézards is all Carignan, from vines ranging from 35 - 75 years, aged in a combination of 1500 L Austrian Stockinger barrels, and 500 L used barrels. This is a significant bottle of Carignan, offering dark, purple fruit and good grip. The famous French term "garrigue" immediately comes to mind, even from smelling the wine. Used to describe the aromas typical of the shrubs and fauna of the Mediterranean, such as Thyme, Rosemary and Lavender, one couldn't find a better descriptor for the flavor profile of this wine. This vintage is a touch lighter and more balanced than the '13 so it could be enjoyed on it's own, but will likely be best on the dinner table with grilled meats and veggies, or other hearty fare.  Eben Lillie

From 85 year old vines of Grenache gris and Grenache blanc, with a small amount of Maccabeu from a 75 year old parcel. Fermented and aged for 9 months in Austrian oak vat (12 hl Stockinger) and smaller used barrels. This is a really fascinating white that has been creating quite a little buzz here at Chambers St. Notes of lemon curd, marzipan and herbs, envoloping in mouth...with mineral cut in the finish, and a touch of spice that lingers after each sip. A must for fans of interesting and unique white wines. Eben Lillie

Jonc Blanc 2015 Bergerac Classik

Isabelle and Franck Pascal make this beautiful natural wine 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 2015 vintage has a dark robe. The nose displays the generosity of the vintage with aromas of ripe blackberries, black currants, and Italian plums with hints of cedar and graphite. The palate is rich, ripe, and deft with a good tension between the beautiful fruit and deep earth notes on a long, persistent, lifted finish. Fabulous with a grilled hanger steak, better still with magret of duck and strong cheeses. This is a tremendous value and should improve over 5-8 years. Delicious! John McIlwain

Biodynamic farming, no sulfur added... it's a natural wine through and through (yes not every natural wine is 11% alc. carbonic Gamay!). Just fresh enough to drink on it's own, this will be a knockout with a light chill and paired with grilled food this summer.   Eben Lillie

Z Blanc is 100% Viognier grown by Géraldine and Meryl Crozier at La Vrille et le Papillon in the Ardeche. This is a lovely natural Viognier that shows a slightly cloudy pale gold color and a bit of reduction when first opened, then lovely very floral aromas of lime-flower, lemon, earth and pear. The palate is light and pretty with citrus, herbal and pear flavors; the finish is refreshing and long with white fruits and minerals. Organic farming, unfiltered and bottled with minimal SO2.  David Lillie

La Vrille et le Papillon 2016 Vin de France Z Rouge (Syrah, Merlot)

Geraldine and her brother Meryl Crozier have a lovely estate situated just west of the Rhone river in Ardeche. The "Z" Rouge is a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Merlot and shows wild rose and black fruit aromas with wafts of gravel, earth, and blood orange. The palate is light but complex and supple with dense plum and cool blackberry fruits, anise and earth that linger on the long finish. An excellent natural wine that is perfect with a slight chill and served with just about anything right off the grill. Amanda Bowman

Another delicious wine from the affable and talented Eric Laguerre, from organic Syrah, Carignan and Grenache vines grown on granite soils high in the mountains of the Roussillon.  The palate is refreshing and dry with hints of raspberry, strawberry,  watermelon, almond and stone.  Eric's great farming, his natural vinification and the high-altitude granite terroir produce this lovely, inexpensive rosé.

Les Fouques 2014 Côtes de Provence Cuvée de l'Aubigue Rouge

Primarily Grenache, with Syrah, Cinsault and Cabernet, this biodynamic red from Provence shows deep plum and blackberry fruit aromas with earth, citrus and Provençal herbs. The palate is ripe and supple with dense black fruits, prune and brown spice lifted by bright acidity. In some vintages this wine can be a bit austere and tannic when young, but the 2014 is bursting with fruit and absolutely delicious for current drinking. Serve with grilled meats and stews, a daube niçoise perhaps, and full-flavored cheeses. Great value!

Mas Coutelou 2016 Vin de France Le Blanc

Le Blanc is the only white Coutelou made in 2016 and it is the first of his whites we've carried at Chambers Street. This is a fresh and summery blend of 40% Macabeu, 30% Grenache Gris, 20% Clairette, 10% Muscat à Petits Grains from parcels planted near the seaside. Lifted floral aromas, lemon pith, and pleasantly leesy notes mingle with tangy ripe fruits. The palate is full and round from the Macabeau but there is an energetic freshness from the Clairette to buoy the rich stonefruit flavors. The finish is refreshing with a lingering note of bitter almond. This is a bottle we'll be happy to revisit all summer long. Amanda Bowman

Mas Coutelou 2017 Vin de France On Peut Pas Vraiment Dire Que

"Vin des Amis" may be Coutelou's most popular cuvée but this 100% Mourvèdre is quickly climbing the ranks. A densely layered Mourvèdre with aging potential,  Jeff says this is the most textbook example he's ever made. On the nose the wine shows heady aromas of briny black olives, violets, black pepper and savory game. The robe is dark in the glass with deep notes of spice, cassis, and a touch of gamey funk framed by firm tannins and salty mineral acidity. An elegant wine that's delicious now with air, but this should make for compelling drinking over the next 3-5 years. Amanda Bowman

Mas Coutelou 2017 Vin de France Vin des Amis

2017 was a vintage characterized by sweltering heat and drought in the Languedoc. Many growers decided to pick early in order to preserve acidity in their wines at the price of less mature fruit. Thankfully Jeff chose to wait so his grapes could achieve full maturity. Late August brought brisk maritime winds and cool nights which dropped the sugar levels for Jeff's grapes, resulting in one of the most balanced and interesting vintages yet. Vin des Amis 2017 is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault and is more serious and broad than his other cuvées. The wine is fermented with native yeast and aged in concrete tank without the addition of sulphur. The nose is generous with complex aromas of plum, blood orange peel and dried flowers. The mid-weight palate is rich with brooding dark fruit flavors and earthy minerals framed by ripe tannins on a long savory persistent finish. A beautiful vintage that we're thrilled to have in stock!

Villet, Gerard & Christine 2014 Arbois Chardonnay Cuvée Orange

This subtly structured Chardonnay is a fantastic introduction to the world of skin contact whites. Here, the skins are kept with the juice until fermentation is finished, at which point there is a press, and then aging. This is not actually a very long period of maceration, but it's enough to lend a faint orange hue to the wine and it's evident from the mouthfeel that the wine has some structure to it. When I first opened this wine, I was expecting the textural characteristics and the flavors I've associated with orange wines in the past, but I was surprised by how beautifully aromatic the wine was. I forgot about the orange wine bit, and just let the Chardonnay do the talking, with flowers, earth, spice, and orchard fruit all intermingling on the nose. Really a unique wine in the layers to the experience, and recommended for those who are curious about skin-contact whites (aka orange wines), but don't necessarily want to dive all the way in.  Eben Lillie

This is a fresh, zippy Chardonnay from Gerard and Christine Villet in Arbois, this is the perfect salad wine! From vines that Christine's father planted in the 1970s, there are some subtle orchard fruit notes on the nose, and great acid on the palate. As is typical of the Villet Chardonnay offerings, the wine is not made in a sous-voile style, but vinified traditionally, so no oxidative notes. For fans of un-oaked Chardonnay, this comes highly recommended.   Eben Lillie

The 2015 resonates with comforting aromas of creamy walnuts, smoke, red apple, and gingerbread spice upon opening. With time lifted aromas of  genepy and subtle mountain herbs emerge to reveal a wine that's playful but rooted in rich tradition. The palate is tightly knit with gripping acidity, spice, and delicious salty minerals. There is the faintest toasted walnut note on the mid-palate but the finish is all refreshing, mineral acidity. Highly enjoyable now but there's no hurry. Amanda Bowman

Bonavita 2017 Terre Siciliane Rosato

Giovanni Scarfone, the driving force behind the stellar Bonavita estate in Faro Sicily, has made another stunning rosato from the 2017 vintage. Easily my favorite rosato every summer, (a category in which competition has become increasingly heated in recent years) the Bonavita rosato is produced from Nerello Mascalese with the inclusion of around 20% Nocera from a small vineyard planted in 2010. Despite only being macerated for around 12 hours, it has a deep ruby hue and the nose is redolent of zesty citrus fruit, bright cherries, wild mountain flowers, and hot stones.  Quite full for a rosato with lots of acidity, noticeable tannins, and buoyant mineral flavors, the wine is both tart and smooth and is seriously refreshing.  I think it is a born match for seared tuna steak dressed in orange and fennel but it will pair with all sorts of food. Try it with all of your spring and summer favorites and stock up before it's all gone!  Andy Paynter

Cornelissen, Frank 2016 Terre Siciliane Rosso (Etna) Contadino

Cornelissen’s Contadino cuvee is a reference back to wines made on Mount Etna, before the modern influx of money and attention took over the mountain (and the whole of Sicily).  Contadino (meaning farmer, or peasant), is a blend of both red and white grapes based on Nerello Mascalese, but also containing Nerello Cappuccio, Minella Nera, Alicante, and Minella Bianco.  The wine making is simple: the grapes are very gently crushed and macerated on the skins for around 2 months and then bottled only lightly filtered with no added sulfur. The wine has a delicate ruby red color that could be mistaken for more deeply colored rosato and is wildly fragrant with bright cherries and raspberries, rose and violet floral tones, Mediterranean herbs, and an unmistakable note of ripe orange peel. It is light and juicy with only a bit of tannin and plenty of acidity; rather than simple, it is refreshing, with layers of juicy red fruit, stony mineral tones, sagebrush, more citrus zest, and a very clean finish. Certainly one of the best vintages of Contadino that I have had a chance to taste, this wine is not to be missed.  Try it lightly chilled this summer with anything from grilled fish, burgers and sausages, briney or fresh cheese, or summer salads.

Il Fortunato aced it with their Rosato Spumante; another lively sparkler produced from organic vineyards with only a minimal addition of sulfur.  The nose is playful with a mix of bright berry fruits and fresh red cherries cut by tart apple skins.  On the palate, a delicate mousse lifts the wine showing some weight, great acidity, and just touch of sugar.  Absolutely lovely!  Pair with charcuterie, simple pasta, or simply drink on its own.

Montenidoli is a landmark estate in San Gimignano famous for producing some of the most characterful, organically farmed Vernaccia in the area. They also produce a wonderful rosato of 100% Canaiolo (a traditional blending partner for Sangiovese) that is always a treat on a hot summer day.   The wine has a delicate peach color and  a very pretty nose with apples, cherries, red flowers, and lemon zest.  The palate is crisp and dry with a soft texture and flavors of red apple skin, mint, cherries, and slight citrus notes.  Really lovely and quite easy-going for Italian rosato, it would pair well with  light salads, chilled soups, soft cheese or of course could be enjoyed all on its own.

Amara Amaro D'Arancia Rossa Blood Orange Liqueur

I am completely smitten with this Amaro. The primary ingredient is blood orange from Sicily with the bitter, herbal components taking somewhat of a backseat, and the result is a brighter, more feminine, style of Amaro that is complex and delicious. It is floral, fruit-forward, mineral, and long with red berry fruits and herbs building on the finish. This is simply a fantastic after dinner drink. Tim Gagnon

Balazu des Vaussières 2013 Vin de France Dent de Lion

The  Balazu des Vaussieres 2013 Rouge “Dent de Lion” was made with Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache with 25% of Grenache Blanc and Clairette. No chemicals are used in the vines and no additives are used in the winemaking - a long carbonic maceration followed by pressing and three years in vat. Even though it was a root day when we visited last winter, the wine showed exuberant aromas of red currant, blackberry, plum, violet, spice, cocoa and orange peel, bringing a smile to our faces. The palate shows a cool, light aspect, a bit similar to the L'Anglore reds, with dense, brambly red currant and blackberry lifted by bright acidity and a bit of tannin, with spicy berry fruits lingering in the finish. This is a beautiful natural wine, serve cool and enjoy!  David Lillie

Balazu des Vaussières 2015 Vin de France Sept Syllabes

The 2017 “Sept Syllabes,” was made with Grenache Blanc and Noir, Carignan and Cinsault. It’s a direct press rosé with little or no maceration and no added SO2. The wine spent approximately two years in vat before bottling. Slightly opaque pink color. The wine shows pretty aromas of creamy raspberry, peach skin, orange peel and earth. The palate is dense and textured with berry fruits, brown spice, citrus and mineral flavors, quite intriguing. There is a bit of funk on the palate, due to the absence of SO2, but the wine remains complex and delicious with terrific length. The color browns slightly with a few days open but the flavors deepen nicely - a few years of aging would be interesting. This is not for everyone, but we find it fascinating and delicious.  David Lillie

Chapelle St. Theodoric 2014 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sablons 375ml

 In the 2014 vintage, it was decided to put all of the La Guigasse and some of the Grand Pin into  Les Sablons, because of the more forward style of 2014."  The 2014 "Les Sablons" is indeed a very lovely Châteauneuf, showing beautiful ripe red currant and black cherry aromas with hints of brown spice, rose, earth and musk. The palate is light and fine but very dense with sappy red fruits, citrus, earth and mineral flavors with hints of licorice and prune. The finish is long and lingering, with firm acidity showing good aging potential. Elegant and delicious now - serve slightly cool - perhaps best 2020 to 2030. Three cheers to Peter Weygandt and Baptiste Grangeon for producing this lovely old-school Châteaneuf-du-Pape!

Although we love this beautifully old-fashioned, organic wine in every vintage, Dany and Carole Chastan have made perhaps their best wine ever in 2015! The wine shows deep aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, prune, garrigue, musk and citrus, quite focused and elegant. The palate is pure, supple and balanced, even at 15% alcohol, with dense blackberry, tart cherry, red currant, spice, earth and minerals, with tart red fruits, minerals and citrus in the very long finish. This is a superb Gigondas that can be enjoyed immensely now with a steak, pork or lamb chops, Morrocan tagines and full-flavored cheeses. Cellar 10 to 15 years for a mature experience. This is a superb wine and a great value - thanks to Carole and Dany for their great farming and traditional winemaking!

(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

Pablo Hocht of Domaine de Creve Coeur has 3 hectares of 60+ year-old vines in Seguret on sandy limestone marl soils, 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre. As with his lovely Sablet, the Seguret is certified biodynamic, fermented slowly with wild yeasts with the stems included. Aging is partly in one to five year-old barriques, partly in vat. In other words, great farming and old-fashioned winemaking, similar to that of the Gonons in Saint-Joseph. The 2016 Seguret shows a deep red/black color and aromas of ripe blackberry, black cherry and red currant, with earth, garrigue and cocoa - dark and rich but with good freshness. The palate is dense and round with a supple, grainy texture with ripe blackberry and black plum, showing the high percentage of Mourvedre, with hints of chocolate, citrus and provencal herbs. The finish is long with cool acidity and earthy black fruits. Serve this beautiful Seguret a bit cool after a decant of a few hours or cellar five to ten years. Great with stews and tagines, grilled meats and game.  David Lillie

The palate is deep and ripe but nicely balanced with bright acidity, showing black cherry, ripe raspberry, brown spice, citrus and mineral flavors, with a nice supple finish. This will accomany grilled tuna, chicken and burgers this summer as well as salads and cheeses.

Rousset 2015 Crozes-Hermitage

From hillside vineyards in Erome, Gervans and Crozes, mostly granite with some limestone/clay, average age 45 years, aged 30% in foudre, 70% in one to 7 year-old burgundy barrels. This is no "ordinary" Crozes-Hermitage, but a real wine of terroir from great vineyard sites, all on hillsides. 2015 is an excellent vintage in the northern Rhone with great ripeness balanced by some rain before harvest. The Rousset 2015 Crozes-Hermitage shows a deep black/purple color with deep aromas of blackberry and blueberry liqueur with hints of earth, bitter chocolate and musk. The palate is dense but brightened by firm acidity with black fruits, licorice, earth and mineral flavors. Black olive and red currant emerge with aeration, really lovely. This is a delicious Syrah from great terroir that will accompany grilled foods, stews, tagines and full-flavored cheeses over the next 5 to 8 years. David Lillie

Rousset 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Les Picaudières

Les Picaudières is perhaps the best vineyard in Crozes-Hermitage, formerly owned by Raymond Roure and now tended by Stéphane Rousset. It's a steep slope of granite terraces, isolated in an oak forest facing due south and protected from the wind. (In the opinion of Livingston-Learmonth in "Wines of the Northern Rhône" wine from Les Picaudières is "certainly better" than many Hermitage from the eastern part of the hill.) The vines range from 20 to 80 years-old. The grapes are hand-harvested and mostly de-stemmed. The wine ages 16 months, 40% in foudre, 60% in burgundy barrels, new to 5 year-old.  "Les Picaudières 2015  was harvested on September 21st,  after a very dry period in late August. The vines profited from the rains in September to finish the maturation" said Stéphane, givng grapes in perfect condition at 13% alcohol. The 2015 shows a deep red/black color with elegant aromas of blackberry, black cherry, bitter chocolate, black olive earth and menthol. The palate shows bright berry liqueurs with deeper earthy black fruits , black pepper, cocoa and mineral flavors with ample tannins and a long saline finish of black fruits and firm acidity. This is a superb northern Rhône Syrah that can be enjoyed young, especially with grilled foods, but best to wait five to ten years and drink until 2035 and beyond. Highly recommended.   David Lillie

Rousset 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc (Old Vine Marsanne)

From 60 to 90 year-old Marsanne vines in the hillside vineyards of "les Vedias" and "Tout" in Erome, decomposed granite with clay and gravel - great terroir producing this serious but overlooked wine from the Rousset family.  The Rousset Crozes Blanc is outstanding again in 2016 and is one of the finest white wine values in the store!

Foursquare Premise Rum 750ml

Premise is the long awaited sherry cask release from Foursquare, spending three years in ex-boourbon cask and seven years in ex-sherry cask. The heat and humidity of the Caribbean has turned this into a beautiful marriage of baked fruit and spice, with a hint of sweetness from the sherry cask and a great texture and viscosity on the palate. Notes of salted caramel, baked apple, sultana, dried apricots, orange marmalade, vanilla, baking spice and leather. The flavors here are broad and intense, though the sherry notes never become overbearing. This is one of my favorite rum releases of the past few years. Oskar Kostecki

Foursquare Zinfandel Cask Rum 750ml

Nominally the "entry level" release from Foursquare, there is nothing simple about this rum. The Zinfandel Cask is the answer to 2016's Port Cask finish release, and it is a fruit forward and effusive, combining aromas of caramel, dried stone fruit, and baking spices with a hint of brandied cherries and red berry fruit. The palate is light on it's feet, this is not a heavy (full-bodied and high ester) rum by any means, but it's nonetheless complex, with a slight salinity that creeps in on the finish. This rum is 11 years old, and a great introduction to the Foursquare family. 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

Finca Torremilanos 2016 Ribera del Duero Montecastrillo Tinto

This 100% Tempranillo wine from Ribera del Duero is a fantastic value!!! Certified biodynamic, the estate does not use any pesticides or herbicides on the vineyards. Coming from vines aged between 10- and 20-year-old, the wine is fermented for 9 days and then aged 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak. The wine displays a bouquet of dark berries, tomato, tobacco, Moroccan spices, earth, olives, and herbs de Provence. With supple tannin and bright acidity, the wine has great energy and freshness. Enjoy this delicious wine with pork chops, herb roasted lamb leg, vegetable lasagna, or a beautiful plate of cheese. Caroline Coursant

Maldivinas 2015 Castilla y Leon Sierra de Gredos Combate Pink

I heartily recommend drinking more deeply pigmented rosés throughout winter (especially at holiday feasts). This is an addictive, fuschia-hued, slightly off-dry rosado of Garnacha from Maldivinas' prime vineyards in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Two-thirds of the fruit comes from vineyards on schist and one-third from granitic soils. The perfumed nose of hibiscus, wild flowers, and damp brown earth continues onto the wild, juicy palate of strawberry preserves, raspberry patch, and black tea. Lots of bright, tangy acidity is present to balance the rich, wild fruit and the touch of sugar that remains in the wine. An explosively delicious rosé for sipping and an inspired pairing for any cured or smoked pork products, dark poultry (like turkey or duck), Asian fare, cheeses, and fruity or chocolatey desserts. One barrel produced. Ariana Rolich

MicroBio Wines 2015 Castilla y León Sin Nombre White

This is a complex and elegant wine, combining classic and natural vibes that uniquely reflect Ismael Gozalo's visions. A 100% Verdejo from ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines of 200 years-old at 900 meters altitude, planted on mixed soils of sand, clay and gravel, the wine is fermented and aged on the lees for 10 months in 1,200 liter oak barrels and an additional 10 months in stainless steel tanks, with no fining or filtering, and minimal addition of sulfur at bottling. The resulting wine is precious, with a gorgeous bouquet of green citrus, tart tropical fruit, white floral and sage notes, vibrant minerality, bright acidity and a superb finish. Complex and simple at the same time, the flavors linger deliciously in the mouth showcasing the long history of the vines and the terroir. A superb wine to pair with risotto, mustard chicken or seared salmon. Caroline Coursant

Birichino 2014 Chalone Antle Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Antle Vineyard is perched at the edge of an extinct volcano, planted on granite and limestone soils at nearly 2,000' in the Chalone AVA. Several notable California winemakers have sourced fruit from this distinctive vineyard, including Enfield, Dirty & Rowdy, and the Scholium Project. Birichino's Pinot Noir from Antle Vineyard resonates with black cherry skin and tart black raspberry flavors with meaty, earthy, and herbal undertones, framed by firm and stern tannins.

Division 2017 Columbia Valley L'Avoiron Rosé of Gamay Noir

This juicy and fresh Gamay rosé comes to us from the vines at Willard Farms in the Yakima Valley. The soil of this area is volcanic uplift on basalt bedrock, topped with Missoula flood glacial runoff. Tight and focused, this rosé is dominated by its nose of strawberries and cream. Dry and with some more savory character on the palate, there is a crisp and refreshing watermelon note, mixed with some herbal, tea-like characteristics and a hint of mint that make this a spectacularly thirst-quenching summer quaffer.

St. Innocent 2016 Willamette Valley Freedom Hill Chardonnay

This fantastic Chardonnay is from the Freedom Hill vineyard located in the foothills of the coastal range 10 miles southwest of Salem. The soil here is well-drained silty clay loam. Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented, this wine was aged sur lie for 11 months in neutral oak before bottling. Broad and magisterial, but with great energy, this is a beautiful Chardonnay, with peach aromas and a touch of more tropical character. The sur lie aging gives it a marvelous roundness on the palate that sublimates the brighter fruit character into something lush and restrained. The retention of such energy in this wine makes it a great Chardonnay for summer, and would pair well with cold summer soups, fish, or bruschetta. While it's drinking marvelously now, this wine will improve for up to half a decade if cellared. Andrew Farquhar

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

Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon

Warning: This Bourbon comes is a bottle shaped like a pot still. Some find this to be beautiful, while others feel that it is an eye-sore. No matter how you feel about the packaging the whisky inside is delicious. There is corn sweetness, but the finish has lots of drying rye. The oak is quite apparent, but in no way overwhelming. An overall supperior offering that has more class than most other whiskies at this price range. JR
