France | Loire | Vouvray When it accompanies salty, briny appetizers, its brightly mineral side shines, but even alongside the spiciest Indian specialties, its audacious fruit and slight sweetness are completely undaunted.
André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Vin de Savoie It has often been likened to a cross between Pinot Noir and Syrah: bright, elegant, and floral, with suggestions of wild fruit, blood, and minerals.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc A blend of Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc, Clairette, and Vermentino planted in the lieu-dit of Aupilhac, the little corner of the Larzac behind Sylvain’s winery.
Masseria del Pino
Italy | Sicily Straddling the best of both worlds—being either a really vibrant light red or a saturated and lively rosé, this mineral-driven stunner, when chilled, is any easy meal's best friend.
France | Burgundy | Saint-Aubin From the most prized terroir of Saint-Aubin, this is a real thoroughbred that you should classify along with the great premiers crus of Chassagne, Puligny, and Meursault.
France | Burgundy | Saint-Aubin The 2018 Cortons flaunts expressive, nutty aromas, followed by a well-balanced combination of Saint-Aubin zing and a richness reminiscent of neighboring appellations.
France | Alsace Ostertag’s Fronholz delivers deeply refreshing, pulpous cherry fruit, woodsy nuances that scream autumn, and velvety-smooth tannins that give the finest reds from anywhere a run for their money.
France | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru Kuentz-Bas vinifies a glorious dry Muscat from grand cru Pfersigberg, an ample and fleshy white scented of ripe citrus, tropical flowers, and exotic fruits.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc Montpeyroux The appellation of Montpeyroux does not have any official grands crus, but Domaine d’Aupilhac’s Les Cocalières is certainly worthy of such distinction.
