Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Product #29849 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Product #31694 (In Stock)
Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015

There’s nothing not to like and everything to love about this robust blend of 50% Carignan, 35% Grenache, and 15% Syrah from the barren hills of Laguedoc’s Corbieres region.  Generous aromas of crushed blackberry, black plum, cracked pepper, cocoa, warm stones and more jump from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how the briary blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit coat your mouth and the accents of chocolate, stone, herb and pepper give extra complexity.  While the flavors are big and the texture rich, there’s a welcome dose of juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins that make this refreshing drunk solo and flexible at table, too.

"What could be a hidden gem in the vintage, the 2015 Corbières Col des Vents is 50% Carignan, 30% Grenache and 20% Syrah that’s aging all in tank. A big, sexy, fruit-loaded effort, it offers a liquid blackberry like style of fruit as well as crushed herbs, pepper and a hint of earth. It should drink nicely right out of the gate."Wine Advocate 87-89 points

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016 Product #31771 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016

Our first 2016 rosé is a winner!  It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé.  After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.
 
As soon as you see this in your glass, you know you’re in for a treat.  It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine.  Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind.  In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, showcasing the short 2016 vintage’s silky texture and ripe fruit.  The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip.  Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad.  “Berry” delicious!

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Product #30615 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  The 2015 harvest yielded plump, ripe, Chardonnay fruit with plenty of heft and balancing acidity.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with nice energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  A tad richer and deeper than the 2014, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015 Product #31343 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015

The 2015 edition of this customer and staff favorite Sauvignon Blanc starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Product #31504 (In Stock)
Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  In 2015, shows even more weight and richness but stays fresh and easy-drinking from beginning to end. Fun stuff and great value!

French Libation Rose Pamplemousse NV French Libation Rose Pamplemousse NV

For years on hot summer days in France's deep south, locals built a refreshing pre-dinner drink from local rosé wine lightened up with a big squeeze of grapefruit juice.  Served on ice with or without a spash of soda, Rosé Pamplemousse (French for grapefruit) was a local favorite to enjoy with family and friends.

Over the past few years, pre-prepared Pamplemousse rosé has swept France as a delicious, fun, low-alcohol, treat to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.  Now you can get in on the fun, too!  Our Rose Pamplemousse starts with cheerful dry pink wine from southern France, leavened with a touch of spritz and all natural grapefruit and peach flavors.  Unlike most examples, there's no added sugar or syrup here, so the big, ripe, rosé and grapefruit flavors finish dry, crisp, and clean.  Drink cold from the refrigerator, on ice, and with or without a pour of sparkling water or Prosecco for a fun and delicious warm weather pick-me-up.

Cheval Noir Saint Emilion 2013 375ml Product #31784 (In Stock)

Alas, this doesn't have anything to do with Ch Cheval-Blanc, but it is a very tasty, drink me now, Bordeaux!  From purchased fruit, it's a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in tank.  Classic Bordeaux aromas and flavors of red currant, cherry, cedar and crushed herb with medium-bodied weight and a touch of dusty tannin at the end. A great match for lighter foods and lean meats.

Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2015 Product #31877 (In Stock)

Kind of an old-school South-of-France red here with a bit of modern polish.  The blend is old-timey with 40% Grenache, 40% Caladoc, 10% Syrah and 10% Marselan all done in tank.  You'll certainly taste the warm, sunshiny, climate here in ripe plum and black raspberry fruit and there's a nice dose of black olive, thyme and lavender, too.  But the flavors stay as fresh as a daisy right on through the dusty, lightly chewy, finish.  Great all-purpose bistro red at a fine, weeknight, price.

J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 Product #30660 (In Stock)
J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015

A rich but vibrant white made from the Loire Valley’s most important white grape – the Chenin Blanc made famous by Vouvray – and Burgundy’s Chardonnay grape, which has thrived in warmer spots here for years.  The vineyards are in the Fiefs Vendeens AOC, just a few miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean.  The balance of warm Maritime sunshine and brisk Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen fully while retaining plenty of summer refreshment value and cut.

Delivers a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) aromas with accents of tree fruits like apples and peaches. On the palate 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 to simply sip or pair with summer salads and seafood.

Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Product #31175 (In Stock)
Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015

"Tire Bouchon" is the French phrase for a corkscrew, but the literal translation is better:  Cork Puller.  And you're going to pull a lot of these corks this fall and winter! This is a throw-back (in terms of both time and how you'll drink it!) red made from Grenache, Syrah, and 10% old-timey Aramon and Oeillade Noire.  While it's all grown in Adrien Roustan's Vacqueyras vineyards, the old grapes aren't allowed, so it's bottled as Vin de France.  The winemaking is pretty old school, too.  All the grapes are tossed into the vat together, covered with some dry ice, and allowed to start fermentation as they will.  10 days in the fermenter, a few months resting in tank, and then ready for you to slurp!

It's friendly from the first sniff, with open, generous, aromas of crushed black raspberries, sweet cherry, violets, and a hint of ripe black olive.  Take a sip and let the party begin!  This wine just oozes sweet, fresh, very ripe red and black cherry/berry fruit with a touch of cracked pepper, lavender and rich loamy earth for complexity.  Juicy and mouthwatering, but not at all tart, with a bit of Black Forest cake (chocolate and sweet cherry) coming up on the supple, lingering, finish.  Sure, it's going to go swell with all kinds of casual foods - burgers, hot dogs, pizza, stews - but it will shine most brightly when shared with (soon to be very happy) friends!

Here's an early leader in the "best wine wine value of 2017" sweepstakes.  From an old, large, negotiant, it's no-oak Chardonnay from limestone soils and the fantastic 2015 vintage.  Serves up generous crisp yellow apple and peach aromas that flow onto a fresh, round, palate with accents of gravel and chalk and hazelnut.  Finishes crisp and fresh with chalk and apple flavors lingering nicely. Burgundy for party or shellfish or just a nicely roasted bird.

From the fine co-op in Tavel, this GSM blend shows off Tavel's best grape - Mourvedre - with style.  The aromas are rich, earthy, and loaded with garrigue and dark black fruit.  The dark blackberry and black raspberry fruit forms the core of the palate, with more of Mourvedre's classic earth and garrigue tones adding interest and a nice dose of firm tannin at the end.  Old-school fun.

Here's a delicious white Rhone from a biodynamic working in a great, great, vintage. A blend of Grenach Blanc and Clairette, made all in stainless steel tank.  Big aromas and flavors of peach, white flowers, and lime with a dusting of white pepper and crushed bitter mineral providing support on the mouthwatering finish. Concentrated, but not heavy, it's lovely to sip and will sing with fish or salads.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Product #31344 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015

We’ve been fans of this small (for Bordeaux) family estate for years but the 2015 steps up the quality to an entirely new level! It’s a blend of un-oaked Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) from the sand, clay and limestone soils of Bordeaux’s Entre Deux Mers region – part of the “Right Bank” that excelled in the outstanding 2015 vintage.

You'll find it deliciously fresh and fun from the first pour and sip, but the real fun comes over the next few hours (or days), as the aromas and flavors get deeper and darker, with black currant, cedar, and dark chocolate holding center stage and classic Bordeaux notes of cedar, tobacco and crushed herb emerging on top.  The texture stays wonderful throughout - mouthfilling and dense enough to demand attention but never heavy or thick or plodding.  And the finish just keeps getting better and better, smooth and long with lingering flavors of fruit, cedar, chocolate and spice.  Hard to resist right this second, but do yourself a favor and lay some down and then pull a bottle out for a special dinner up to 10 years from now.  No one will ever believe what you paid!

A classic Muscadet from from the exciting 2015 vintage. Bold, saline, aromas of green apple, citrus and stone lead to a fresh, salty, palate with lean, green, fruit, tons of minerality, and a pulsing energy that just won't quit.  Finishes long and pure and clean with notes of lime, mineral, and more lingering on and on.  The warm vintage gives a bit more heft than usual, but still plenty of refreshing cut.

We aren't finding much not to love about the great 2015 vintage across Europe, but we especially appreciate how the warm season adds a bit of plumpness to wines like this.  It's 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley's Tourainne growing area, one that's famous for leaving a bit of bell pepper and some hard edges to its bargain Sauvignon.  Not here!  Round and fully ripe, this is bursting with green melon and sweet grapefruit aromas and flavors and just right dashes of fresh herb and lemony acids.  A great solo sipper and fun with food and a great bargain, too!

Last year we brought you Damien Rozier’s outstanding Plan de Dieu 2012, a terrific, gutsy, Cotes du Rhone from the pebbly soils of one of the Southern Rhone’s most underappreciated regions.  Now we’re featuring his Cotes du Rhone Villages 2014 and we know it’s going to thrill you just as much!  It’s a robust blend of hand-harvested Grenache plus Mourvedre and Syrah with a bit of time in neutral wood casks.  But mainly it’s a ton of fun in your glass.

Big aromas of purple fruits – plum, berries, dark cherries – lead to juicy and fruit-filled flavors of crushed blue and black berries, sweet cherry, licorice and classic Rhone pepper and garrigue.  There’s a nice dose of fine-grained tannin here, making this a terrific match for casual foods, but more than enough suppleness and fruit to be enjoyable all on its own.  Ready to go tonight and sure to get even better over the next couple of years, this is a joyful wine to warm up any cold winter night.

Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2015 Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2015

Well, now.  This is a whole lot of wine for $15 (or less!).  It's about 45% each Grenache  and Syrah plus 10% Carignan, all grown on slopes along the Agly Valley.  The gneiss and schist soils are very free draining, forcing the vines to really drive their roots down and pick up plenty of Roussillon's classic minerality to go with the dark fruit and lavender notes.  For all the richness, this is very poised and pure and while it will be lovely right now with lamb or beef it's likely to be better still in 2018.

"The jaw-dropper in the lineup was the quality of the 2015 Haut Cotes de Roussillon Villages les Vignes de Bila Haut. While the entry level wine from this estate, the quality here is incredible, especially at the price point. Made from 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan from a mix of the estate’s terroirs, aged in concrete tanks and stainless steel, it offers a rich, concentrated and serious feel to go with fabulously pure notes of blackberries, black raspberries, crushed rock and melted licorice. Thick, unctuous and luxuriously textured, this will certainly be the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date."Wine Advocate 91-93 points

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!
