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 De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015 Product #31485 (In Stock)
Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015 Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015

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.

Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine 2015 Product #30753 (In Stock)
Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2015 Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2015

Having converted his Clos des Grand Primos vineyard to certified organic farming, Michel Bedouet is delivering on Muscadet’s potential.  The vineyard is a rocky mess of granite, schist and gneiss - no fun to farm, but wonderful for Muscadet's Melon de Bourgogne grape.  The 2015 delivers all the saline minerality and chiseled cut you'd expect from fine Muscade, but also a generous roundness to the texture and a plenty of ripe apple and tangy lemon-lime fruit. You’ll taste the benefits of extended aging on the lees – spent yeast cells left after fermentation – in the wine’s wet stone and chalk minerality, but love how the fresh fruit holds center stage and pumps on through a long finish of lemon, apple, lime zest and fresh thyme.  Sure, it’s a great wine for shellfish, but you’ll love it with almost any summertime dish or simply all on its own.

Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2015 Product #30816 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2015 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2015

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!

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.

Pierre Guindon Muscadet Coteaux De La Loire Sur Lie 2016 Product #32135 (In Stock)
Pierre Guindon Muscadet Coteaux De La Loire Sur Lie 2016 Pierre Guindon Muscadet Coteaux De La Loire Sur Lie 2016

The cool, maritime, vineyards of Muscadet and it's unique Melon de Bourgogne grape don't get nearly enough attention and respect.  Try this and you'll see why Muscadet is the perfect companion to shellfish and summer heat.  It's at once round and crisp, mouthfilling and weightless, and loaded with lime and green peach fruit.  Time on the lees (the "Sur Lie" on the label) buffers the fresh acids and helps the wine drive to a fresh, almost salty, clean finish.

J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2016 Product #31960 (In Stock)
J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2016 J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2016

From the Western Loire Valley appellation of Fiefs Vendeens, this ripe and juicy blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Negrette is even more fun in the stellar 2015 vintage.  Ripe aromas of crushed cherry and watermelon and a touch of fresh herb lead the way to a big mouthful of cherry/berry fruit and a fresh, juicy, mouthwatering finish.  Lip-smacking and fun to smell, drink and just admire – especially in the throw-back old-school bottle.  A bit richer and creamier than in the past; just as dry and crisp.  Great stuff to sip or enjoy with any spring or summer meal.

Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015 Product #30914 (In Stock)
Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015 Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015

A great 2015, even better than the 89 point WS 2014.  The Spectator described that as, "Bright cherry and red currant fruit is liberally laced with tobacco and shiso leaf notes, giving this an almost snappy edge. A taut chalky spine runs through the finish."  In 2015, the wine is richer, rounder, and has more sweet fruit but finishes with fine energy and very fine tannins.  A bistro beauty!

As Wine Advocate wrote a few years ago, "Thierry Boucard’s Bourgueils and the downright ridiculous value they offer should win many new converts to the cause of the Loire Cabernet Franc."  The 2015 edition delivers fresh, crunchy, cherry and red-currant fruit with a nice dose of crushed herb and extra richness.  Finishes mouthwatering and fresh.  An fun, easygoing, bistro red.

Eric Chevalier Muscadet Clos De La Butte 2015 Product #31733 (In Stock)
Eric Chevalier Muscadet Clos De La Butte 2015 Eric Chevalier Muscadet Clos De La Butte 2015

Want to taste what a talented young winemaker can do with 50 year-old Melon de Bourgogne on the stony soils of Muscadet, not far from the Atlantic Ocean in western France?  Well, you should!  Because this is about as delicious as Muscadet gets.  Vibrand aromas of stone and citrus fruit with something salty in the back lead to a big mouthfull of tangy fruit, salty stone, and the richness that comes with 8 months on the fine lees stirred every day.  For shellfish, of course, but also just to drink.

Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #32172 (In Stock)
Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2015

As Wine Spectator says, this is "a terrific value" Sauvignon from just outside of Sancerre.  Melon, stone fruit, and white grapefruit citrus flavors shine in nicely round, almost creamy, wine that finishes crisp and dry.

"Fresh, with a light, zippy mix of peach, lemon and verbena notes. Showing textbook typicity, this is a terrific value."Wine Spectator 88 points

Certified organic grapes, minimal intervention winemaking, and perfectly ripe Chenin Blanc grapes come together here in a crisp, clean, classic dry Vouvray to enjoy on its own or with rich foods.  Aromas of mineral-driven pear, white flower, and hazelnut lead to big flavors of dried peach and apple with a bite of lemon rind on the long, juicy, finish.  The "silex" soils shine through here!

Dom Pelle Menetou-Salon Morogues 2014 Product #31781 (In Stock)
Dom Pelle Menetou-Salon Morogues 2014 Dom Pelle Menetou-Salon Morogues 2014

Located just southwest of Sancerre, Menetou-Salon has become a fine source of Sauvignon Blanc that marries Sancerre's flinty minerality to just a touch more lightness and freshness.  This blends fruit from 7 relatively high-altitude vineyards to give a pretty wine with light white citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors with accents of fresh grass and wet stones.  Mouthwatering and generous on the palate with a long, lightly fruity finish.  Delicious!
