Domaine Catherine Le Gœuil France | Southern Rhône | Cairanne
This Cairanne bears all of the southern Rhône notes we love: black cherries, garrigue, olives, and stones. It will pair magically with braised oxtails or grilled lamb chops.
Domaine Ostertag France | Alsace | Alsace
Fronholz is a vineyard composed primarily of quartz, and the taste of an Ostertag wine from here is reminiscent of this stone: sleek, transparent, and brilliant.
Sommariva Italy | Veneto | Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Superiore
Don’t wait for a special occasion to open up a bottle of this stellar Prosecco. This quaffable bubbly can be enjoyed as a cheerful weeknight wine or try it in a spritz with one of our Bèrto Vermouths.
Clos Saint-Joseph France | Provence | Côtes de Provence
This unique terroir, nestled among the limestone mountains north of Nice, deserves its own appellation. Contrary to the usual rough and tannic reds of the far-reaching Côtes de Provence appellation, this is fresh and lively! A gem hidden in the hills.
Albert Boxler France | Alsace
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fall asleep in a field of summer flowers? Boxler’s Pinot Gris Reserve will make you feel like Dorothy in Oz, but instead of poppies...honeysuckle, chamomile, and as you lie back in the sun, you bite into a luscious, technicolor nectarine. Yum.
Mas Champart France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Vin de Pays d'Oc
For the southern red wine fanatic, lover of Bandol and other meaty reds, this wine is a steal. A blend of rustic and peppery grapes like Cab Franc, Carignan, and Syrah, it’s spicy, plummy, and so delicious. A cult favorite of those in the know.
Château d’Épiré France | Loire | Savennières
Electrically vibrant yet succulent, this glorious Chenin Blanc is one of the most versatile wines I know, sippable on its own or widely food-friendly—no forethought is necessary except for chilling the bottle.
Ludovic Engelvin France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Gard
Mourvèdre and Grenache from a historic vineyard site give this elegant and profound red, replete with wild herbs, spice, and a chewy, stony tannin.
Kuentz-Bas France | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru
Spend a minute or two trying to describe the palate: I’ll propose voluptuous, finesse, ampleur. Maybe simply grand cru says it—a privileged site for Riesling!
Domaine de la Chanteleuserie France | Loire | Bourgueil
Smooth and seductive on the palate, Cuvée Beauvais offers a resurgence of silky fruit and florals—like blackberries and roses, without the thorns.
This month, we celebrate olives and their profound ability to coax a mundane meal into a most exquisite Mediterranean experience. These savory stone fruits are enjoyed the world over in myriad expressions, especially in the regions where they are grown: mixed into an herby pasta in Sicily, roasted with chicken in Provence, baked into focaccia in Puglia...
As far as I know, Kermit has never explicitly asked Kuentz-Bas to craft a series of wines to keep us engaged, on our toes, and refreshed most every night of the week. But, as you’ll discover by sampling the wines in this collection, that is—remarkably—what this domaine has done...
Nearly all of our 2021 rosés are now in stock, and they were well worth the wait. A relatively cool growing season across France yielded zingier-than-usual wines marked by bracing acidity and crisp, fresh fruit from the Loire Valley all the way down to the Mediterranean.
Well, one bottle led to another, and before you can learn how to pronounce “Loire” like a true Frenchman, Paul had created four recipes to accompany and show off the wines from the four Loire wine regions.
Through their various bottlings, these three domaines contribute to a collection of Chablis marked by place, each reflecting a unique site and the commitment of a talented vigneron. They communicate the Chablisien goût de terroir—that unequaled aroma and flavor that can only come from Chardonnay grown in this chilly pocket of northern Burgundy.
The only thing we like better than great wine is great wine that doesn’t cost much and we’re happy to report that a bottle of great wine can still be found for $20 or less. We’ve put together a collection of our favorites all in one place for your browsing pleasure: bargain whites, rosés, reds, and a couple of sparklers.
