Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Product #28457 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013

The Gau family is unusual for Languedoc growers – they make only “single varietal” wines rather than the field blends of Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah common all around them.  This 100% Chardonnay thrives in the rocky soils and warm climate here, and delivers lovely aromas of ripe pear and apple with pretty floral accents.  The flavors start crisp and refreshing and get even better with a little air, with sweet Bosc pear, peach and apricot flavors gaining complexity from the barest hint of caramel and mineral.  No oak here to interfere with the fruit, and we suspect a little Viognier has snuck into the Chardonnay vines, giving this much more perfume and peach than normally found this far south.  A luscious mouthful of wine with a crisp, clean, finish that will delight at a party and make you think of springtime when sipped on its own.

Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Product #27594 (In Stock)
Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006

Last Call for our best-selling Bordeaux ever!  It's a (mainly Merlot) Right Bank Bordeaux that’s perfectly ripe at just 13% and perfectly mellowed from time in barrel and cellar. On first pour, both the color and aromas are still show very youthful, with primary scents of fresh red currant and black raspberry accented by notes of tobacco leaf, cocoa, and spice. With a little air, the aromas get darker and richer, showing off this wine's beautiful ripeness.

Seven years time has softened the palate to a silky smooth texture and allowed the pretty berry and currant fruit to come forward.  You're starting to find notes of age here as earthy tobacco, fresh mushroom, and cedar peak out, but the overall thrust is still behind the juicy, fresh, fruit.  Very light, sliky, tannins come up at the end to provide classic Bordeaux structure for food – especially that classic pairing of maturing Bordeaux and lamb!  You can enjoy this now while dinner is in the oven and will be delighted to keep on quaffing it until all the clean-up is done.  Fresh, fruity, delicious, and attractively packaged in an authentic Bordeaux wood case – a fantastic value!

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Product #28251 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013

2013 will be difficult for red Bordeaux, but the dry whites (like this one) excelled with that perfect blend of ripe fruit and vigorous, juicy, acids.  The 2013 edition of our best-selling Bordeaux Blanc ever delivers on the promise of the vintage.  It opens with its usual generous scents of white pineapple, honeysuckle, and orange zest.  The 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit delivers more of the same on the palate plus a bit of firm green melon, tangerine, and a bite of citrus pith and oil.  A tad more elegant and fresh than the 2012, it's even more a great all-purpose white for parties, salads, fish, or just sipping on a warm afternoon.

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2013 Product #28557 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2013 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2013

This 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet clearly demonstrates just how under-rated this variety is. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around daily white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2010 375ml Product #28678 (In Stock)
Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2010 375ml Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2010 375ml

As always, a lovely value!

"Admirers of the so-called “little” wines of Bordeaux will no doubt be familiar with Recougne, which has been imported into the United States for nearly thirty years and can last for two decades or more. The 2010, which they now call “Vieilles Vignes,” exhibits aromas and flavors of cedarwood, spice box, black currants and berries. This medium-bodied, well-made blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc should drink well for 7-8 years. (Although last year I drank a 1952 that was still quite tasty.)"Wine Advocate 87-88 points

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013 Product #28782 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Product #28504 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012

A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%). This is a soft, fruit filled, take on Bordeaux that fills your mouth with juicy red currant and black berry fruit accented by a touch of spice.  Subtle notes of fresh herb and tobacco keep this anchored in Bordeaux, and there’s just the enough ripe tannin to let it work well at table (but not enough to get in the way of solo sipping).

A late release from the outstanding 2010 Rhone vintage, this pairs lush fruit with a fine graphite streak.

"This mouthfilling red displays unctuous plum and boysenberry fruit flavors that course along nicely, thanks to lively spice and toasted anise notes, with a strong graphite steak. Fleshy, but excellent acidity is well-embedded on the finish. Drink now through 2015."Wine Spectator 90 points

Organic Grapes  Christophe Aguilar's family estate sits on rocky soils just a stone's throw from the Pont de Gard, an ancient Roman bridge outside of Nimes. Their un-oaked Chardonnay from all organic grapes is a beauty, as much fun to sip by itself as it will be to enjoy with fresh water fish, salads, or poultry.  Aromas and flavors feature juicy lemon, Granny Smith apple and ripe stone fruits with a touch of mineral.  The juicy lemon and peach flavors keep on pumping through the refreshing, clean, fun!

Dom De La Patience Merlot 2011 Dom De La Patience Merlot 2011

Organic Grapes  This Langeudoc estate not far from the famous Roman bridge, Pont du Gard, takes its name from a wild aromatic herb called "La Patience" that grows through the vineyard.  And that fresh herbal note runs through this delicious Merlot, too!  You'll find generous aromas of wild berry, raspberry, and baked strawberry fruit with seductive accents of dark chocolate and crushed herb. As the fruit gets more lush and powerful, a classic Langeudoc note of black olive emerges over the soft, juicy, blackberry fruit lingering on the finish.  Fun stuff to serve at a party or enjoy with grilled pork tenderloin!

Ridge Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2013 Ridge Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2013

A robust bottle of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cab Franc that punches way above it's price.  Dark black currant, cassis and spiced chocolate aromas lead to a rich, dense, mouthful of currant and blackberry fruit with accents of dark chocolate, crushed herb and fresh cracked pepper.  Plush and creamy in the middle before ripe tannins come up at the end to support the chocolate, berry, and spice flavors that linger on.  Outstanding value in Cabernet to serve with hearty food or just sip on its own.

Dom De l'Hemoniere Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2013 Dom De l'Hemoniere Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2013

This could just be the perfect year-round Sauvignon Blanc - refreshing enough for summer heat and rich enough for mid-winter seafood.  It's 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the middle Loire valley (not too far from Vouvray), and shows off lovely ripeness in 2013.  Sweet pink grapefruit, green melon, and Granny Smith apple aromas carry through to the generous flavors where a touch of spice and lime zest kick in, too.  Nicely full in the mouth but juicy clean at the end with just a touch of grapefruit zest and cut grass. Pretty darn delicious.

A rich and fruity Touraine that reminds us why this is one of the best spots in the world for great value Sauvginon Blanc.  Plenty of yellow, orange, and pink citrus aromas and flavors with a touch of green melon and a pretty whiff of fresh cut grass.  More flinty and mineral than most Touraine wines, but still generous and creamy with a clean, crisp, finish of Myer lemon and lime.

Ch La Matheline Bordeaux Superieur 2009 Product #28949 (In Stock)
Ch La Matheline Bordeaux Superieur 2009 Ch La Matheline Bordeaux Superieur 2009

Ch la Metheline is a small, even obscure, estate located just outside the boundaries of Fronsac on Bordeaux’s “Right Bank,” just a short distance northwest of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol.  This is Merlot country where the Wine Spectator 96 point 2009 vintage turned out reds that are “Rich and powerful yet round and friendly, with velvety texture and loads of fruit…don't overlook Fronsac and Castillon.”

2009 la Mentheline is very much in this mold.  It’s 80% Merlot with 10% each of Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure) and Cabernet Franc (for perfume).  The ripe fruit clearly saw some time in barrel (probably not new) for added richness and complexity.  It’s a big wine (very 2009, in fact) with dark red currant, cherry and raspberry fruit at the core and accents of cedar, tobacco, dark chocolate and spice.  With a little air, a floral/herbal note emerges on top for even more charm.  The texture and length here belong to a much more expensive wine, and you’ll take great pleasure in drinking this now with lamb or roast beef and keep on enjoying it over the next 5 years or so.  Impressive wine, impressive package, and a very impressive price!

The red vermouth is frankly sweet but with plenty of bright acidity and bitter herb at the end to keep things fresh.  A touch of cherry/berry fruit and plenty of caramel, bitter herb, and exotic spices hold sway here with citrus peel and herb flavors lingering nicely.
