In the last couple of weeks, we have received some incredibly exciting shipments featuring wines that were either produced or cellar-aged in extremely limited quantities. From Domaine Lapierre’s silky and perfumed new cuvée made from declassified, organic Morgon fruit to Domaine Monier Perréol’s 2016 Saint-Joseph that has evolved beautifully in their Saint-Désirat cellar, these are all wines that have just arrived, but will soon be gone—until the next vintage arrives next year. Don’t miss this opportunity to taste some outstanding small-production bottlings and library releases from France!
M. & C. Lapierre France | Beaujolais | Beaujolais
A brand new wine in the Lapierre lineup, “Le Beaujolais” is silky, perfumed, and incredibly fresh, exhibiting the pleasure factor we expect from every bottle to come out of the Lapierre cellars.
Bernard Baudry France | Loire
Brambly berries and lifted floral notes combine with an earthy coolness and touch of spice in this red whose low alcohol level makes it even easier to fervently slurp down.
Domaine Robert Chevillon France | Burgundy | Bourgogne
Today, awareness of Passetoutgrain has largely faded, but if you look closely in cellars throughout Burgundy, you’ll notice many of the greatest domaines continue to uphold this tradition.
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.
