1. Forest-Marie Brut Champagne

    Forest-Marie Brut Champagne

    A 50/50 blend of both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and a combination of the 2008 and 2010 vintages. Big, rich, round, yeasty biscuit quilities are the star of the show here. A really nice Growers Champagne with the land being in the family going back to 1746. A nose of cool pear, cream, citrus, brioche, and light apple. The palate is moderate in weight with golden apple, pear, brioche, and a light oak barrel spice to add texture. Learn More
  2. Stephane Coquillette Les Cles Blanc de Noirs NV

    Stephane Coquillette Les Cles Blanc de Noirs NV

    The grapes are coming from Ay in a warmer, richer, growing environment within close proximity to the River Marne. This Champagne is oozing with fruit and richness and it is rounder than many sparkling wines in its category. The fruit from the Pinot Noir is visable in the glass, but it still has the tart cherry characteristics that compliment the acidity. This only spends time in stainless steel and the freshness and crispness are protected by the steel container. Learn More
  3. Jacquesson Cuvee 742 Champagne NV

    Jacquesson Cuvee 742 Champagne NV

    50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Meunier. The Cuvée 700 series is all about expressing both terroir and the vintage – the wine changes with each release, rather than being a consistent house blend. The base for 742 is 2014, showing a subtly developing maturity of roasted almonds, biscuit, and mushrooms but still incredibly fresh with high acidity and a dry, lean, linear palate filled out with a creamy texture and red apples. Intense and ageworthy. Learn More
  4. Merlin Cherrier sancerre Rouge France 2017

    Merlin Cherrier sancerre Rouge France 2017

    Sancerre is extremely famous for its white wines, especially in America, but many don’t even know that they make a red wine out of the only black grape that is permitted to be grown; Pinot Noir. This will never get as ripe as a California Pinot Noir and has notes of the forests that surround the vineyards. The color is a transparent with a bright cranberry juice tinge. Black cherry, mulberry, and cedar box with a clean crisp mouthfeel; medium tannins. Learn More
  5. Burn Cottage "Cashburn" Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

    Burn Cottage "Cashburn" Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

    Ted Lemon of Littorai is the consulting winemaker at one of the most exciting new projects in New Zealand’s Central Otago, making sensational Pinot. Aged in 35% new French oak for 12 months, there’s a very pretty, inviting nose with cranberry, strawberry, and raspberry, some tarragon and dried roses, and sweet spice. Great, round structure on the palate, with a bit of jam and high acidity. Very more-ish. Learn More
  6. Georges Laval Brut Nature Champagne NV

    Georges Laval Brut Nature Champagne NV

    Although the Laval family has grown grapes in Cumières for generations, it wasn’t until 1971 that the (late) Georges Laval began releasing estate-bottled wines. Among the many notable features of the Laval wines is the family’s longtime commitment to organic viticulture—they’ve been practicing organic since the 1970s, and have long been certified by Ecocert. Transcendent purity, depth, structure and complexity. Learn More
  7. Pierre Girardin Pommard 2017

    Pierre Girardin Pommard 2017

    Sourced from the two Lieu Dit ‘Les Cras’, ‘La Chaniere’ the vines are over 60 years old and provide extra concentration and depth. The fruit is fresh and bright with raspberry, red cherry, potpourri, blackberry on the mid with cassis. The fruit is in perfect balance with the earthy savory notes that are common in red Burgundy. 100% de_stemmed with 25% new oak. This can be enjoyed now, but it is very capable of aging for a decade plus. Learn More
  8. Berthet- Bondet Cote de Jura Trio Rouge 2016

    Berthet- Bondet Cote de Jura Trio Rouge 2016

    The trio of grapes that make up this wine are Poulsard, Trousseau, and Pinot Noir. Three amazing grapes in their own right, but they create a harmonious wine of delicate fruit flavors when blended together. A small amount of funk is balanced out by earthy aromas and damp forest floor. Red fruits dominate the palate and they are joined by light flavors of fig, soft tannins and firm acidity. This is a lovely representation of a Jura red. Learn More
  9. Henri Goutorbe "Special Club" Champagne 2006

    Henri Goutorbe "Special Club" Champagne 2006

    "The 2006 Special Club Grand Cru Brut is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from Aÿ. The wine has a deep, fine and mineral bouquet of ripe and concentrated fruits (pineapples and citrus) intermixed with chalky notes. Pure, fresh and intense on the palate, this is a full-bodied, fresh and elegant Champagne with remarkable finesse, mineral grip and power. The finish is long and complex, but the wine is still young." Robert Parker Learn More
  10. Domaine Collotte Cuvee Vielles Vignes Marsannay 2016

    Domaine Collotte Cuvee Vielles Vignes Marsannay 2016

    Rarely do you find single village wines for $30, and this Marsannay should really cost a lot more. The wine is a blend of five different parcels with an average vine age of 50 years. There are a lot of flavors in the glass, including dark plum, black cherry, herbs, and a faint meatyness. The palate is firm and round with an unwinding, balanced acidity that awakens the senses. Get this producer while you can, before the prices rise. Learn More
