2016 Patient Cottat "Le Grand Caillou" Sauvignon Blanc Top Pick!
2016 Patient Cottat "Le Grand Caillou" Sauvignon Blanc

Sancerre at half the price! The Fournier family, with roots as deep as their vines in this region, seem to be related to just about everyone in some way. They've been farming and producing wines in Sancerre for generations. We are pleased to have been offered this wine, yet again, at such a great price. Soft, subtle mineral notes are wrapped up in aromatics of melon and citrus. Clean, bright and refreshing, this is a perfect little Sauvignon Blanc. Tropical fruit, citrus and spice aromas and flavors, with vibrant acidity and minerality. Perfect for goat ... Read More »

2016 Bernier Chardonnay Val de Loire

This Chardonnay is produced by the three brothers Couillaud at the Château de la Ragotière, a few minutes from the Atlantic near the mouth of the Loire River, where the maritime climate is ideal for producing whites that are refreshing and bright. The Couillauds age most of this wine on its lees until bottling to add weight and texture with around 10% being barrel-fermented in French oak for the faintest touch of toastiness. Saveur magazine wrote about a previous vintage: "This value-priced Chardonnay tastes crisp and bright. It comes from the western Lo... Read More »

2017 Le Coeur de la Reine Sauvignon Blanc Touraine

A partnership between Rodolphe and Ludivine Marteau, the fourth generation to make wine from their family's estate. Of their 29 acres, 20 are devoted to Sauvignon Blanc. With vines averaging 20 years and very detail-oriented farming, they harvest the best quality fruit possible. Tasting notes from the importer: "The nose offers an intense 'fruit basket' dominated by citrus scents with a note of blackcurrant bud. In the mouth, all is suppleness and elegance. The final spicy note emphasizes the freshness and the generous length of this Touraine Sauvignon."

2016 Clos du Gaimont Vouvray Sec

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows at a parcel within the Clos de Nouys; the wine aged for several months in three-year-old casks from Cognac. This wine’s acidity may feel steely and unforgiving right now, but a day or two of air takes it into realms of wildflower honey and spring rain. The fruit fills out, saturating that lean frame with notes of beeswax and lanolin. Tuck this in your cellar and you’ll be happy to find it in ten years."

2017 Domaine les Pins "Les Rochettes" Bourgueil Rosé

Domaine les Pins sits in the heart of Bourgueil. It is an area that is lately garnering attention for the quality of their Cabernet Franc-based red wines. There is also a more recent history of really fun rosé production that should not be overlooked. Some of the best and most unique pink wines from the Loire come from Bourgueil.

2017 Franck Millet Sancerre Blanc

The Millet Sancerre has been a favorite here at K&L for a long time. Grown in limestone-clay soil, the wine reflects the terroir wonderfully. The flavors are bright with lime, mineral, passion fruit, and that wonderful chalkiness one wants from a Sancerre. This wine over delivers and pairs beautifully with oily seafood dishes and of course, your favorite cheeses.

One of K&L's very finest buys from France. This is a reserve cuvée, made from Millet's chalkiest limestone soils. There is a long maceration at very low temperatures to extract as much flavor and character as possible. The resulting wine is intensely charged with stone fruit and minerality, with bright citrus notes.
