Italy | Liguria | Riviera Ligure di Ponente All the care, attentiveness, and backbreaking labor required to farm this site result in one of the most joyful and lighthearted reds you will encounter.
Cantine Elvio Tintero
Italy | Piedmont | Langhe There’s no mistaking this scrumptious red for anything other than Nebbiolo—perfectly ripe, dusty red fruit, gentle tannins, and the telltale scents of tar and roses.
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.
Château La Roque
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Pic Saint Loup There is something timeless to La Roque’s Pic Saint Loup, its herbal bouquet and rich, fleshy texture, all free from any hint of modern trappings.
Domaine de Durban
France | Southern Rhône | Gigondas Throw a rock (or a riverbed stone) in the southern Rhône and chances are you’ll land on a bottle whose contents, for the price, wouldn’t hold a candle to Henri Leydier’s Gigondas from Domaine de Durban.
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 Comte Abbatucci
France | Corsica | Vin de France What is there to say about this wine that upon first opening you will be engulfed with aromas of maquis that grows wild all over Corsica. Not to mention the exuberant energy this wine has on the palate.
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.
