2014 Bernier Chardonnay Val de Loire Top Pick!
2014 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 »

2014 Domaine Cherrier Père & Fils Sancerre Top Pick!
2014 Domaine Cherrier Père & Fils Sancerre

Wine Spectator: "Offers a bony feel, with flint and chive notes backed by a chiseled, lime-edged finish. (JM)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: Francois and Jean-Marie Cherrier with father Pierre produce steely and citrus-driven Sancerre from fine parcels of Sauvignon Blanc planted in Sancerre's silex (flint) and chalky soils. Yields are kept low and harvest is done strictly by hand before fermenting in 100% stainless steel. Vibrantly aromatic and mineral-driven, this is quintessential Sancerre.

2014 Les Roches Sauvignon Touraine

This Sauvignon Blanc from Touraine displays an intense, classic nose of cut grass, pepper and, believe it or not, pineapples and lemons, with plenty of minerality.

2014 Michel Delhommeau "Harmonie" Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

Michel & Nathalie Delhommeau farm 28 hectares of vines planted on almost pure rock in this region. Dominating the estate is gabbro which is essentially rock formed from molten lava. Many of the vines are quite old, producing low yields and very complex bottlings. Michel vinifies only by soil type, separates tanks out by vine age, and keeps volumes quite low. Aside from producing great wine, this young couple represents the opposite of the jaded and often pretentious winemaker set one can easily find.

2014 Domaine du Pré Semelé Sancerre

Meaning "the reasoned struggle," the French farming movement "la lutte raisonnée" uses organic farming methods by preference, but seeks a balance more akin to what California "sustainably certified" growers are doing. That's how Claude and Remy Raimbault's vineyards are farmed, now with the help of son Clement. They grow 25 acres of Sauvignon Blanc on limestone and clay soils, producing a classic, mineral-driven Sancerre.

From a classic producer in the Loire Valley (est. 1893), this Chenin Blanc hums with acidity while showing stone fruit notes on the medium-bodied palate. The finish is just a touch sweet, though its electric acidity provides a delicious yin-yang effect. Pair with creamy cheeses for palate nirvana.

There is perhaps no better match for a dozen oysters than minerally Sancerre from one of the best producers in the region. This release is always a cut above textbook Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc, with bright acidity, smoke, citrus and grassiness. Hippolyte Reverdy's family has been making wine in the charming village of Verdigny, a commune of Sancerre in the eastern Loire, for many generations--perhaps as far back as 1600.

With its bright apple and ripe pear flavors, it’s bursting with fruit and lifted by acidity that has just the right intensity. Drink now. —R.V."

This wine is different than most other Sancerre around this price point, thanks mostly to being grown on the southeastern side of the appellation where the concentration of Silex (flint) is quite a bit higher. This means this Sauvignon Blanc has a bit more of a sharper mineral note to it (which I love). Don't let that scare you.
