Don’t miss this organic Bordeaux from the legendary 2010 vintage, back by popular demand. Bellevue occupies a special place in the mosaic of terroirs that make up the Bordelais: the vines (Merlot and a smattering of Cabernet Franc) sit atop a stratum of limestone that provides a backbone of fresh, firm, chalky tannins. As a result, this Lussac is savory and mineral-driven, with a dusty earthiness and iron-like sanguinity. It is a Merlot that will challenge even the most vehement Merlot haters—just picture Paul Giamatti in Sideways gulping it down animal style with his In-N-Out burger. –Anthony Lynch
