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 de Durban
France | Southern Rhône | Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise This lovely Muscat is full of fresh honeysuckle and ripe citrus fruit. Have an ice cream maker? This wine makes the best sorbet you’ll ever taste!
A. & M. Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Vin de Savoie Jacquère takes on an intensely mineral expression in these “soils” of lime-stone scree—rocks that have broken off the mountain over tens of thousands of years of erosion.
Château La Roque
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc Pic Saint Loup This chewy red offers aromas of ripe black cherry and wild brush that beg for something hearty, grilled, and smothered with garlic and herbs.
