France | Corsica | Patrimonio In this bottling from Yves Leccia, the French import Grenache—called Elegante in Corsica—takes center stage, offering fragrant notes of lavender spiced with balmy Mediterranean brush.
André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Vin de Savoie This medium-bodied white evokes peaches, honey, and pine resin. Perfect for winter nights and dishes like hearty, Savoie-inspired fish chowder.
André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | 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.
Domaine Pierre Guillemot
France | Burgundy | Savigny-aux-Serpentières One of the world’s greatest red Burgundy values, with a track record that would make many grands crus jealous, this is the Guillemot family’s flagship bottling.
Domaine Pierre Guillemot
France | Burgundy | Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Succulent and concentrated with a magnificent grain, this cuvée is always among the more earthy and savory of Guillemot’s lineup.
France | Beaujolais | Régnié Savor it while you can, because your glass will be empty before you know it, leaving you only with the spicy, mineral-laden aftertaste of a bottle that went down way too easily.
Château La Roque
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Pic Saint Loup There is something timeless to La Roque’s Pic Saint Loup, its herbal bouquet and rich, fleshy texture, all free from any hint of modern trappings.
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.
France | Corsica | Patrimonio This white, raised in demi-muids with malolactic fermentation, flamboyantly shows off the affinity of ripe Vermentinu grapes with a judicious use of wood.
France | Corsica | Patrimonio It’s beautifully ethereal, with pillowy fruit that tastes so sublime it would be limiting to attempt a description, although quince and verbena jump to mind.
Domaine de Durban
France | Southern Rhône | Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise Leydiers at Domaine de Durban are particularly proud of their Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise, a vin doux naturel, as they are among the last to craft it in the traditional style.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Monts de la Grage These ancient hillside vines yield very little, giving an intensely concentrated juice with great acidity and a textured finish. Open it alongside seafood or as an apéritif.
Jean-Claude Regnaudot et Fils
France | Burgundy | Maranges With its soaring aromas of red and black fruit, Les Loyères bears a chiseled frame, outstanding minerality, and pitch-perfect acidity that gives it notes of citrus, brightness, and lift.
France | Alsace | Alsace This “noble blend” combines the region’s principal grape varieties in one lip-smacking, liter-sized bottle of fun, perfectly capturing the magic of Alsace at bargain cost.
Domaine La Tour Vieille
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Collioure A stony, spicy cuvée full of Mediterranean sunshine, aromatic garrigue, and a hint of salinity that offers a perfect match for grilled rosemary lamb chops.
France | Loire | Chinon Baudry is among the Loire’s most reliable names for authentic, age-worthy reds produced via natural methods, and the same holds true for the domaine’s rare, precious blanc.
France | Loire | Chinon This cuvée comes from their highest vineyard, which rests on a plateau of gravel, sand, and limestone, and it is arguably their best entry point into the charm of Loire Valley Cabernet Franc, lithe and less dense than the bottlings from their clay-and-limestone terroirs.
Domaine Roland Lavantureux
France | Burgundy | Chablis Everything about this cuvée, from the delicately briny scent of slick oyster shells to the concentrated, pristinely focused sensation on the palate, is a demonstration of why this domaine has become one of Chablis’ very best.
France | Burgundy | Bourgogne Climate, a clay-and-limestone soil, and stainless-steel vinification are the pillars of Valentin’s Galerne blanc, a divine rendition of pure, chiseled Chardonnay, bearing notes of orchard fruit, citrus, and oyster shells
Domaine de Villaine
France | Burgundy Stylistically, Les Clous is in between La Fortune—lighter and brighter—and La Digoine—the densest and most sappy, characterized by medium weight with more red fruits, smooth but present tannins, and distinctive polish.
