France | Loire | Saumur This chiseled Chenin Blanc comes from 70-year-old vines planted on an ancient limestone slope. Burgundian-like in character from its time spent in barrel, the laser-like acidity will become even more enticing with some age.
France | Loire | Sancerre Previously blended into the domaine’s Sancerre rouge, the 2018 vintage is the first separate bottling of this unique vineyard, a successful experiment if there ever was one.
Domaine de Villaine
France | Burgundy | Rully Rabourcé is considered one of the top premiers crus in Rully. Its old vines sit on a steep clay and limestone slope and yield a complex, powerful white Burgundy.
Domaine de Villaine
France | Burgundy | Rully From its basic elements—the crystal clear water, the crushed limestone soil, the lush, vibrant fruit—comes a dynamic and utterly delicious Chardonnay. This wine is all refinement and pure class.
France | Alsace | Alsace Fronholz is a vineyard composed primarily of quartz, and the taste of an Ostertag wine from here is reminiscent of this stone: sleek, transparent, and brilliant.
Domaine Régis Bouvier
France | Burgundy | Morey Saint Denis Surrounded by several grands crus, Regis’ plot of Morey Saint Denis is, not surprisingly, his most prestigious and most striking. The wine is firmly structured and robust, with dark, plump fruit that tastes fresh and utterly drinkable.
Barruol / Lynch
France | Northern Rhône | Hermitage From the small plot called La Pierrelle, whose vines are more than eighty years old, comes this Marsanne with magnificent floral, pit fruit, and bitter notes.
France | Jura | Côtes du Jura A transformative process must have been at work here, with the dynamic freshness of the ouillé, or topped-up style, yet it still displays hints of caramelization and golden savoriness.
France | Provence | Côtes de Provence This unique terroir, nestled among the limestone mountains north of Nice, deserves its own appellation. Contrary to the usual rough and tannic reds of the far-reaching Côtes de Provence appellation, this is fresh and lively! A gem hidden in the hills.
Vignai da Duline
Italy | Friuli | Friuli Colli Orientali First class depth and complexity on par with village level White Burgundy, but with a Friulian slant. Zingy adicity with citrus and apple notes.
Catherine & Pierre Breton
France | Loire | Bourgueil There isn’t a spot in the world better suited for Cabernet Franc, and their old vines produce the raw material for one of the best reds in the Loire valley.
Italy | Piedmont | Barolo La Tartufaia is a divinely atmospheric truffle forest in the heart of La Morra where Giulia’s vineyards run parallel. The wines produced here, from clay-rich soil, are textbook examples of classically structured Barolo typical of the area.
