Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2015 Product #32444 (In Stock)
Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2015 Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2015

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $10.98/EA

The world's most under-valued great white wine could just be Muscadet - the bone-dry, stony, green-fruited Loire Valley white that folks keep confusing with sweet/perfumy "Muscat."  The grape is actually Melon de Bourgogne and it gives a tart, green apple and lime zest, wine that needs a few months resting on the lees to develop matching richness and depth.  This one's delicious for now-2025 (really!) and crazy cheap for the quality.

"Last tasted in late July 2016 on the eve of what was to be the first of multiple bottlings, this is a bit closed on the nose but displays infectious juiciness of apple, lime and honeydew melon mingled with iodine, crushed stone and mineral salts, leading to a vibrant, consummately refreshing, palate-staining finish."  Vinous (Schlidnecht) 92-93 points

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.

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!

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

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!

Dom Des Baumard Quarts De Chaume 2011 (375ml) Dom Des Baumard Quarts De Chaume 2011 (375ml)

A classic that pairs honeyed richness with vibrant acids.

"A bright, juicy, lively style, with mango, peach, yellow apple and green fig notes all rippling along, carried by alluring honeysuckle and white ginger notes. This is flattering at first glance but there's fine minerality stitching up the finish. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2022."Wine Spectator 93 points
