Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Product #28614 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013

Basically a “baby Sancerre”, this exciting young Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the same chalky slate soils you’ll find across Sancerre from 10-40 year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel and allowed to rest 3 months on the fine lees.  The vineyard is located just outside the legal boundary of Sancerre, but the flavors make you feel right in the middle!

As in the past, generous, fresh, aromas of fresh flowers, just cut grass, white grapefruit, and a hint of wet stones burst from the glass.  Then you’ll find a tad more richness and zest to the crisp citrus and green apple fruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh grass.  As the refreshing acidity wells up to make your mouth water, a bit of Sancerre’s trademark “gun flint” character shows underneath the juicy bright fruit.  There’s a wonderful rich/brisk, sweet/sour contrast in this wine that will delight and fascinate with every sip.  Served cold, it’s thirst quenching and refreshing.  Let it warm up a touch and it’s layered, complex, and a fantastic match for seafood, fresh vegetables, and – of course – goat cheese.

Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013 Product #28501 (In Stock)
Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013 Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013

Certified Organic Grapes.  Betes Curieusses is a partnership of two Jeremies - Huchet and Mourat - who are making some of the most exciting terroir-driven Muscadet we've ever seen.  This wine comes from vineyards laced with decomposed granite over sand, warm soils that give remarkable ripeness.  It's a round, fruit-filled, Muscadet - almost creamy in texture - with a touch of peach to complement the salty mineral and lime zest.  Brisk, bracing, and utterly delicious.

J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2013 Product #29380 (In Stock)

J. Mourat lies in the Fiefs Vendeens-Mareuil, in the far western Loire valley, just inland of the Atlantic Ocean. In this unusual location, unusual blends seem to work well - at least that's the best explanation we can come up with for why Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc work so well together here!  The aromas and flavors present a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) with tree fruits like apples and peaches.  It's wonderfully fresh and bright from first to last, with notes of peach, apricot and apple lingering under zesty lime juice acidity.  A joyful wine of great distinction.

Leon Vatan Sauvignon Blanc Mmm... 2013 Product #29465 (In Stock)
Leon Vatan Sauvignon Blanc Mmm... 2013 Leon Vatan Sauvignon Blanc Mmm... 2013

The name - Mmm - pretty much says it all here.  This is crackling, pure, Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc in a Pouilly Fuisse style (but at a very nice VDP price).  Loads of flinty mineral aromas and flavors over white grapefruit and lemon fruit that build in intensity towards the finish.  The white grapefruit, lime, and gunflint flavors really pop on the long, mouthwatering, finish.  Take a sip:  Mmm is what you'll say!

Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Graves 2013 Product #29311 (In Stock)
Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Graves 2013 Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Graves 2013

One sip of this brilliant Chinon and you’ll find yourself looking around hungrily for a plate of great bistro food!  It’s 100% Loire Valley Cabernet Franc from certified biodynamic (sort of organic plus) vineyards, hand harvested and hand made in big cement vats, perfectly balanced on its 12.5% alcohol. It’s wildly aromatic – sandalwood, dark cherry, bunches of fresh herbs – and full of crunchy red fruits, green herb, and a touch of spice.  Juicy and crisp, you can drink it cool today for its mouthwatering refreshment or let it age a few years for darker fruit and more spice character. Either way, one sniff, one sip, and you’re transported to a Parisian bistro as a waiter sets your plate of steak and frites before you.  Just lovely stuff.

Dom Des Baumard Logis De La Giraudiere Anjou Rouge 2010 Product #28450 (In Stock)
Dom Des Baumard Logis De La Giraudiere Anjou Rouge 2010 Dom Des Baumard Logis De La Giraudiere Anjou Rouge 2010

If there's a more fun to drink Loire Cab Franc out there, we don't know it!  While there's plenty of Anjou fresh herb, cracked pepper, and juicy acidity here, the lush, ripe, red currant, raspberry and cherry fruit stars.  The lush, velvety, mid-palate fruit coats your mouth before tangy cherry acidity scrubs things clean and hints of fresh raspberry blossom leaves you wanting more.

Gauthier Bourgueil Les Vingt Lieux Dits 2011 Product #27971 (In Stock)
Gauthier Bourgueil Les Vingt Lieux Dits 2011 Gauthier Bourgueil Les Vingt Lieux Dits 2011

A very special Loire Cabernet Franc from the top parcels farmed by Pierre and Catherine Gauthier in Bourgueil, across the river from Chinon.  The Gauthier's farm organically, ferment using native yeasts, and age their wines in used double-sized casks.  The 2011 is lovely with beautiful aromas of purple fruit, green tobacco and a subtle earthy note.  In the mouth it's snappy and crisp with tart cherry and purple berry fruit, more tobacco, and pleasing cherry pit bitterness.  A great wine for fresh greens or peppers and better still with classic steak frite!

Dom Regis Cruchet Vouvray Sec 2011 Product #26791 (In Stock)
Dom Regis Cruchet Vouvray Sec 2011 Dom Regis Cruchet Vouvray Sec 2011

A fantastic bottle of Chenin Blanc that teeters brilliantly on the border between "sec" and "demi-sec".  Complex and captivating aromas of waxy asian pear and herb honey open things up.  Then, juicy on the entry and explosive flavors of pear, apple, flowers, and a touch of spice that gain richness from a hint of sweetness before the acids break through and deliver a dry, crisp, finish.  Very complex with deep flavors and excellent acids.

Dom Des Baumard Savennieres 2010 Product #28529 (In Stock)
Dom Des Baumard Savennieres 2010 Dom Des Baumard Savennieres 2010

Savennieres, just across the river from the sweet wine region of Cote du Layon, is one of world's greatest sites for rich, wildly complex, and utterly dry Chenin Blanc.  This is a brilliant introduction to the delights of Savennieres, bursting with waxy peach fruit and finishing with complex minerality.

"A bright, engaging style, exhibiting fresh-cut Anjou pear, green almond, fig and brioche notes laced with a hint of butter. Offers a long, pure, honeysuckle-filled finish."Wine Spectator 91 points

Ch Du Coing Muscadet Comte De St Hubert 1999 Product #28202 (In Stock)
Ch Du Coing Muscadet Comte De St Hubert 1999 Ch Du Coing Muscadet Comte De St Hubert 1999

Here's how Wine Spectator described this wine - in June, 2003!  "A dressed-up Muscadet, with almond and hints of toast lying over the more common lemon, lime, floral and briny flavors. Has just enough zip to offset the creamy-textured finish. Very nice, though a bit atypical. Drink now."

Well, 10 years later and nearly 15 years after harvest, this wine is still going strong. The aromas and flavors are a bit exotic, with white stone fruit, lemon/lime zest, lemon curd, and loads of salty mineral weaving in and out.  It's still creamy in texture and still has enough acidity to stay in balance, but it's also picked up hints of fresh almond and iodine.  Captivating to just sip and a perfect match for sophisticated seafood dishes.  Oh - and while "drink now" is still good advice, there's no rush.
