France | Burgundy | Saint-Aubin From the most prized terroir of Saint-Aubin, this is a real thoroughbred that you should classify along with the great premiers crus of Chassagne, Puligny, and Meursault.
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 | Alsace | Alsace Grand Cru Kuentz-Bas vinifies a glorious dry Muscat from grand cru Pfersigberg, an ample and fleshy white scented of ripe citrus, tropical flowers, and exotic fruits.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc Montpeyroux The appellation of Montpeyroux does not have any official grands crus, but Domaine d’Aupilhac’s Les Cocalières is certainly worthy of such distinction.
Domaine Les Pallières
France | Southern Rhône | Gigondas If you’re familiar with the wines of Vieux Télégraphe, you know that grapes in the hands of the Brunier brothers are treated respectfully to coax nuance and finesse.
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.
Domaine Pierre Guillemot
France | Burgundy | Corton Grand Cru Open now if you would like to taste its youthful magic, but don’t miss the transcendent reward of popping the cork in ten to fifteen years.
Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
France | Southern Rhône | Châteauneuf-du-Pape The majesty of the La Crau vineyard is encapsulated in this wine. I can't think of a grander expression of Southern Rhone terroir to be enjoyed this winter.
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 | Burgundy | Aloxe-Corton This rouge—a blend of fruit from two parcels that abut premier cru vineyards—delivers such finesse and pleasure that it makes you wonder why this village isn’t mentioned more often in the same breath as Volnay, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
