France | Southern Rhône | Vin de Pays de Vaucluse The blend is equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Clairette. Together, they create a wine that has a complex mouth-feel that finishes with a nice refreshing acidity.
Italy | Puglia | Valle d’Itria IGP Minutolo preserves lip-smacking acidity and low alcohol despite the baking-hot Puglian summers, flaunting a gorgeous perfume of blossoming flowers, lemon verbena, and wild sage.
Italy | Sicily | Sicilia Noto A unique interpretation of chalky soils, wild Mediterranean herbs, coastal sea breeze, and Sicilian sunshine. Delicate, stimulating, and completely dry—it’s a ravishing aperitivo, but works with anything from the ocean.
André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Savoie Chignin If any Pinot Noir on these pages is built for the Parisian bistro or Lyonnais bouchon, it is this one from the hills of Chignin, in Savoie.
Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Pic Saint Loup Its intense aromatics brazenly translate the Pic’s rugged nature, and an almost chewable minerality brings to mind slabs of shattered limestone incarnated as energy, drive, and uncommon length on the palate.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc A blend of Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc, Clairette, and Vermentino planted in the lieu-dit of Aupilhac, the little corner of the Larzac behind Sylvain’s winery.
France | Loire | Jasnières Racy, slightly honeyed, exotically perfumed, and loaded with minerality, this wine is an excellent representation of how Chenin reacts to the local conditions.
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.
France | Bordeaux | Graves Whatever snacks are on your table or picnic blanket, this blanc will fit the bill with its crisp, elegant profile and pretty notes of green apple, citrus, and subtle tropical fruits.
France | Loire | Coteaux du Loir This red is 100% Pineau d’Aunis, an indigenous red grape we hold dear to our collective hearts because of its mystifying aromatics, low alcohol, and bright, juicy texture.
Domaine de Fontsainte
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Corbières Its peachy-pink hue hints at what’s to come: orchard fruits and brambly wild berries, grapefruit and wet slate after a summer rain! Perfect with chips and a sandwich on-the-go, or an elaborate al fresco meal. A staple wine I can’t live without.
France | Loire | Chinon Put a slight chill on it, pop the cork, and inhale its lively perfume: the floral fragrance and bright, juicy fruit—picture fresh-squeezed berries—are simply irresistible.
André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Savoie Chignin With notes of mixed black and red fruit and a spine of minerality, Quenard’s Gamay is crunchier, more aromatic, and more succulent than most bottles you’d find in Beaujolais.
France | Beaujolais | Côte de Brouilly A wine with an unexpectedly aromatic bouquet and bright, zippy palate—a testament to the natural elegance that embodies all of Château Thivin’s wines.
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.
Domaine de Terrebrune
France | Provence | Bandol This precise, mineral blend of Clairette, Ugni Blanc, and Bourboulenc has an ethereal perfume, reminiscent of blossoming flowers with a hint of fennel, that makes it irresistible right now.
