Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Product #27154 (In Stock)
Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012

The motto here is “Gascony seen by a feminine point of view.”  Other than the fact that the estate is led by women, I’m not sure what that really means, but this is a heck of a delicious white for Spring and Summer sipping.  The blend is 80% Colombard – the main white grape in Gascony – for bright acidity and round texture and 20% Sauvignon Blanc for a big burst of fruit and touch of fresh hay.  The fruit flavors coat your palate with ripe green melon, golden apple, and orange/tangerine flavors set off by lemony acids, a dash of minerality, and a whiff of fresh cut grass.  A great summer sipper that delivers Sauvignon Blanc-like flavors that have been softened and tamed by the Colombard.  Yummy with salads, asparagus, shellfish, or just to sip on its own.

Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml Product #27792 (In Stock)
Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml

Dolin Vermouth's are pretty much the same today as they were when first introduced in 1821.  Made from white wines and fresh and dried herbs and botanicals from Chambery, they are all complex, fresh, and just as delicious on their own as they are in a complex cocktail.

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.

Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011 Product #28178 (In Stock)
Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011 Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011

A classic expression of Malbec from Southwestern France, home of the ancient "black wine of Cahors."  For rich food now or to cellar for another few years.

"This is a powerhouse of ripe fruits, strong tannins and dark acidity. It burst out of the glass with its bold, firm flavors and solid structure. It is already balanced, the fruit complementing the dense texture. But it will certainly develop more and age very well."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

This beautiful, singular wine is from the highest vineyard site in Europe and made from the unusual grape varietal, native to the Valle d'Aosta, Prie Blanc.  The aromas are like nothing else - pithy citrus, chamomile tea, and wild honey.  Words like 'racy' and 'drive' have become part of the peculiar lexicon of wine speak because of wines like this.  This would be delicious with a wide range of cheeses.

Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2012 Product #28069 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2012 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2012

Despite the generosity and ripeness, I thought this was more like a 2010 than a 2012 when I tasted it last week.  There’s a lovely honeyed richness to the lime and apple fruit, and the finish is long, detailed, and pure.

"I very much like the intensity and detail of the mineral-driven, chiseled and overtly austere medium-bodied flavors that possess a borderline salty finish. This is excellent and I suspect that the youthful austerity will dissipate relatively quickly."Allen Meadows 89-92 points

“Featuring a remarkable amalgam of herbed chicken stock, oyster liqueur, clam juice, and fresh lemon juice. While this displays considerable substantiality, it also boasts greater animation and clarity than many of its immediate stable mates, finishing with invigoratingly zesty sizzle, refreshing brightness, and mouthwateringly meaty and crustacean savor.” Wine Advocate 91-92 points
