Catherine & Pierre Breton
France | Loire | Bourgueil A great option when you need to stop your “natty wine” friends in their un-sulfinated tracks. A seriously playful Cab Franc from the masters of vinous fun.
France | Loire | Chinon The comfort of settling in for the winter—that’s the feeling I get the minute I put my nose in a glass of Baudry’s Chinon Grézeaux. The very name suggests its gravelly terroir and earthy structure: a natural choice for this time of year.
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.
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.
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 Catherine Le Gœuil
France | Southern Rhône | Cairanne This Cairanne bears all of the southern Rhône notes we love: black cherries, garrigue, olives, and stones. It will pair magically with braised oxtails or grilled lamb chops.
France | Corsica | Patrimonio The Cuvée Sarah, an aromatic mix of roasted, smoking herbs with plenty of tannins to chew on, goes down with pleasure and calls for another round (and a grill).
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.
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.
