Portium Cava Brut Nature NV Product #29658 (In Stock)
Portium Cava Brut Nature NV Portium Cava Brut Nature NV

Cava is always good value, but you'll look long and hard to find any sub-$10 sparkling wine that's this good. It's a blend of traditional Cava varietals - Xarel-lo, Macabeu and Parellada - with 30% Chardonnay and fermented in bottle, just like Champagne.  It's rich, yeasty, showing off caramalized apricot flavors, fine bubbles, and finishing zesty and dry.  ** from the Washington Post, too!

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.

Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 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 dry style vermouth shows a pure, almost sweet-smelling, nose of white wine, herbs and wormwood.  In the mouth it's pure, herbal, and very clean with just enough body and ripe fruit to impart roundness.  Finishes clean, complex, and fresh with no bitterness.  This would be a fine match with fresh pesto!

Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Product #28480 (In Stock)
Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Product #28953 (In Stock)
Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Product #28028 (In Stock)
Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Ramos Pinto Ruby Port

A delicious and fun Ruby port made from younger vines of Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca and aged 3 years in big wooden wine vats called "balseiros". Fresh and fruit-filled with generous notes of crushed raspberry, blackberry, and sweet licorice and dark chocolate.  Very juicy and fresh, and perhaps too easy to drink by itself.  But, try it with Stilton, nuts, or chocolate cake - Yum!

It's been a few years, but Wine Spectator's review of the 2012 edition holds true for the current release as well!

"This Champagne offers an array of flavor, including toasted brioche, Gala apple, lemon zest, graphite and ginger, with a touch of honey. Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish." [For the 2012 release]Wine Spectator 92 points

Rozes Porto White Reserve NV Rozes Porto White Reserve NV

First, yes - this is a full 750ml bottle!  It's also a fascinating take on white Port.  Because the white wine aged in wood for 8 years, this drinks like a fantastically vibrant, youthful, tawney Port.  Full of dried apricot and raisin fruit and lightly caramelized walnut and almond flavors, it's lightly sweet and super long on the palate.  Delicous!

Langlois Pere Et Fils Cassis Nv Langlois Pere Et Fils Cassis Nv

The first thing you'll notice about this delicious creme de cassis is its almost neon color, a gorgeous, glass-staining magenta.  Made from super-ripe cassis berries grown on the Langlois estate, this is sweet, rich and lucious, to be sure, but also has an intriguing undercurrent of something leafy and herbal that keeps it from becoming cloying.  If you've never had a real creme de cassis, try adding a few drops to sparkling wine for a Kir Royale you won't forget!

Dom Larue Cremant De Bourgogne Nv Dom Larue Cremant De Bourgogne Nv

Didier Larue uses fruit from younger vines in Burgundy's St. Aubin to create this very elegant and tasty Champagne-style value.  It's all Chardonnay from the excellent 2012 harvest fermented in bottle and aged for 12 months on the lees.  Fine bubbles bring out generous aromas of white fruit, toast, and marzipan on the nose.  The texture is fine and precise with peach, apple and salty caramel flavors the pulse through the mid-palate and linger on the long, dry, finish. Sure, this could easily pass for $40 Champagne, but don't keep it back for "special occasions."  This is fine, classy, fizz to drink with delight anytime at all.

L. Aubry Fils Brut 1er Cru Nv Product #28947 (In Stock)
L. Aubry Fils Brut 1er Cru Nv L. Aubry Fils Brut 1er Cru Nv

This is utterly captivating Champagne, based on Pinot Meunier (45%), about 25% each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and the rest Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau.  About half is from 2010, 25% from 2009, and the rest from a solera going back to 1998.  As Wine Advocate says, "If that sounds like a recipe for delivering complexity, you’re right!"

"Pungent aromas of Meyer lemon, pear and fig, with a gingery accent adding lift. Sappy, penetrating citrus fruit and floral flavors are given a refreshingly bitter character by notes of pear skin and peach pit, with a waxy note coming up on the back half. A smoky nuance lingers on the finish, which shows very good clarity and length."International Wine Cellar 91 points

"With increased acreage and experience, the unorthodoxy of “unknown” cepages has now trickled down to the level of Aubry’s “basic” NV Brut Disg. 4/2013. This contains just one-quarter each Chardonnay and Pinot; 45% Meunier; and a mixture of Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau (a.k.a. Pinot Gris). Nearly half of it is reserve wine, and more than half of that from a solera going back to 1998. If that sounds like a recipe for delivering complexity, you’re right and won’t be disappointed! Bittersweet perfume suggestive of gentian and iris mingles with intimations of fresh lime and sea breeze that in turn manifest themselves on a seductively silken palate in both juicy, vivacious exuberance and mouthwatering saliva-inducement. A scallop-like sweetly saline and mineral amalgam takes hold in a vibrant finish that leaves me caught between the urge to linger and the urge to take the next sip. This exceptional value by appellation standards is almost sure to prove worth following for several years, even if, sadly, few wine enthusiasts are likely to put that prediction to the test."Wine Advocate 92 points

Voirin Jumel Brut Cuvee 555 Nv Product #29180 (In Stock)
Voirin Jumel Brut Cuvee 555 Nv Voirin Jumel Brut Cuvee 555 Nv

Here's a stunning wine from a tiny estate (just 12 hectares of vineyard) you've probably never heard of - but one that's gaining plenty of attention in Europe for this luxurious oak-aged Champagne.  Oak and Champagne are not always the best of friends, as the impact of wood (especially new wood) can easily overwhelm Champagne's subtle nuance and grace.  Here, though, winemaker Patrick Voirin uses very old Burgundy barrels (15-20 years-old) for just 4-6 months aging.  Combined with 6-7 years aging in bottle on the lees, this results in a fanstaically rich and complex Champagne very much in the style of Bollinger or Krug.

Cuvee 555 – named for the estate’s home address at 555 Rue de la Liberation in the village of Cramant.  It’s 100% Chardonnay from the Cramant Grand Cru vineyard called Clos du Mardu. We think it’s a blend of 2007 and 2006 vintage wines, but the information is sketchy!  Nothing sketchy about the wine though. You'll find rich, powerful, aromas and flavors of fresh baked bread, spices, lemon peel, toasted nuts and salty caramel here with tiny bubbles and bright acids providing lift and mouthwatering refreshment.
