This year has thrown just about everything anyone could—or couldn’t—imagine our way, so as we enter its final month, we reckon we are due for a reward. And what better reward than a collection of perfectly mature vintages from some of France and Italy’s most skilled artisans? Aged wine offers unrivaled pleasure and complexity, from the beautifully integrated textures and tantalizing hints of development we experience in bottles five or ten years old to the truly sublime aromatics typical of wines with significantly more age under their belt. For all the hedonistic enjoyment to be had from zesty young Chablis and gluggable, grapey Dolcetto, it is well worth it to add the occasional golden, luxurious Meursault or velveteen, truffly Barolo, wise from their years tucked away in a cool place, to one’s lineup. We are excited to share these special wines with you, in hopes that you find some great aged bottles from your favorite producer for yourself or a loved one. After all, you certainly deserve it!

When traveling the wine route in France and Italy, I come across fine olive oil almost as often as I come across fine wine. Of course, these are the two staples of the diet in this part of the world...

Muscadet's potential for true greatness—structure, complex flavors, and ageability—is all-too-often overlooked. Tasting the wines of Domaine Brégeon, however, should convince anyone of Muscadet’s greatness.
Tasting through these characterful cuvées, you will realize why vibrant, terroir-driven wines from small family domaines are just as essential—if not more—to Bordeaux’s identity as those imposing, picture-book châteaux.
