France | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru The brilliance of the Sommerberg vineyard is its ability to produce sumptuously rich and perfumed Pinot Gris that maintains a vibrant acidity and stony backbone.
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 Wiptal is the highest-altitude portion of the Sommerberg vineyard in Niedermorschwihr, a perfect amphitheater that clings to the very top of the vineyard’s steep granite slope.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc Aged for two years in barrel and bottled unfiltered, this soulful Languedoc super-cuvée promises to age just as gracefully as top bottlings from Bandol and the Rhône.
Domaine Maxime Magnon
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Corbrières 100 year old vines, limestone schist soil, built to age but delicious even now. Even though it is full bodied and firmly structured it has some delicate fruit notes and a hint of rose petal in the aroma.
France | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru The Dudenstein bottling, produced only in great years, represents the pinnacle of Boxler’s wine-growing prowess and without any doubt is one of Alsace’s—and the world’s—finest Rieslings.
France | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru Pfersig means “peach,” and the wine’s subtle whispers of white peach are adorable, and then the bouquet keeps growing more expansive, more intense, grander.

France | Loire | Vouvray Late-harvest Vouvray is legendary. It possesses sweet lusciousness and fresh acidity, a balance that makes it immediately appealing yet allows it to age magnificently.
