Barruol / Lynch
France | Northern Rhône | Côte Rôtie A time capsule in the form of Côte Rôtie. This is the old rustic style and reminds us how this Northern Rhône appellation earned its legendary reputation.
Italy | Liguria | Rossese di Dolceacqua The 130-year-old vines at Poggio Pini deliver Alessandro Anfosso’s greatest wine: a deep, silken Rossese that marries floral, smoky, and spice elements, culminating in a mouthwatering, stony finish.
Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
France | Southern Rhône | Châteauneuf-du-Pape The wine is at once pleasure, richness, depth, and freshness. The body is velvety and not at all aggressive. You smell the stones, the minerality, a smokiness, the magnificent old-vines Grenache fruit.
France | Beaujolais | Côte de Brouilly Champagne may be considered the traditional wine for most celebrations, but what could be more spontaneously festive and happiness-inducing than juicy, bright Gamay?
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Languedoc Aged for two years in barrel and bottled unfiltered, this soulful Languedoc super-cuvée promises to age just as gracefully as top bottlings from Bandol and the Rhône.
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.
Villa Di Geggiano
Italy | Tuscany | Chianti Classico Broad-shouldered, with hearty tannin and acidity and a dark, earthy quality to its fruit, it is a lumberjack wine that can cut through anything a Tuscan table can throw its way—wild game and aged cheeses are some of our favorites.
France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Gard Mourvèdre and Grenache from a historic vineyard site give this elegant and profound red, replete with wild herbs, spice, and a chewy, stony tannin.
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.
Italy | Piedmont | Barolo Giulia’s painstaking attention to detail in these sandier-soil parcels, and deliberate choices in the cellar, result in wines with a fine grain, spiced tannins, and a celestial nose of peony and rose petal.
