French Wine

When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its regions, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and occasionally as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a 100 lives. To understand and appreciate French wine, you only need to begin tasting them. Check out some of the top picks that our buyers have tracked down - several of these wines are imported directly from France.

2015 Domaine Lafage "Bastide Miraflors" Côtes du Roussillon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California's Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It's a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky ...Read More »

2016 Jean-Claude Boisset Bourgogne Rouge "Les Ursulines"

91 points James Suckling: "Some might say that this is a natural wine because zero sulfur was used during the vinification (note: there was a minimal sulfur dose before bottling). Nevertheless, a very harmonious Bourgogne rouge with lovely, dark berries. Long and supple finish. Drink now or in 2019 and 2020." (2/2018) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A smoky version, offering black cherry, blackberry, earth and spice flavors to match the toasty oak. This is succulent and leaves spice and smoke notes on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (BS)" (3/2018)

Medium to full-bodied, the palate is concentrated but not overly so, with incredible brightness and vivacity leading into a mineral, saline finish that refreshes and lifts the spirits.

2016 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône

It's unusual to see Syrah-led blends coming out of the southern Rhone but this has become one of the signature wines of prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme. The fruit comes from the Vinsobres appellation in the northern part of the southern Rhone and the terraces of the Villefranchian subregion on the Gard side of the Rhone River. Imbued with the full flavor and richness that Syrah provides and from this exceptional 2016 vintage, you can't go wrong with this pleasing and intense French red.

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.

Winemaker Anthony Girard grew up in his family's Sancerre winery, but spent a number of years learning about production all over the world before returning home to continue working with Sauvignon Blanc. While continuing to help with the namesake Girard label, Anthony wanted to create his own project on the side and eventually purchased a small plot of pristine real estate near the town of Récy with primo Sancerre limestone soils. After acquiring the vines he was given a large key as a symbolic gesture of new ownership, or a "clef du récit," which became ... Read More »

Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne "Perle d'Aurore" Brut Rosé

90 points Decanter: "The Louis Bouillot ‘Perle’ series is exceptionally well-crafted for its price and all of the wines are recommendable. I’ve picked out the Rosé Perle d’Aurore, though, as rosé is something of a Bouillot speciality (over a million bottles are produced every year) and it’s a wine which isn’t shy about its burgundian identity. “We want,” says Marcel Combes, “vinosity above all, almost a touch of tannin, with what you could almost call a compote style of fruit.” Autumn red fruits are there on the nose, but in a soft and understated style; on the palate, by ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne Top Pick!
Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth." (7/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A lovely rosé in an almost vinous style, with mouthwatering acidity and a fine, lacy mousse carrying appealing flavors of ripe raspberry, white cherry fruit, star anise, mandarin orange peel and honeysuckle. Lightly chalky on the lasting finish. Enjoy with food. Drink now through 2020. (AN) ...Read More »

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

Don't let the low price fool you; this is a great bottle of Champagne. The Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" is made of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Meunier. A balanced cuvée in every way, this Champagne is clean and powerful at once. It has a natural toasty quality from spending five full years on the lees, and plenty of refreshing zip from the far northern location of the vineyards. No bottle in our inventory transports me to Champagne like this one. It is as true to the terroir and as pure as anything I could wish for! You don't have to settle... Read More »

2009 Malmaison, Moulis-en-Médoc

Wine Spectator: "This has a good sappy feel, with kirsch and cherry preserves flavors laced with a pepper note and a lively tobacco streak. Shows a stony edge on the finish. Drink now through 2015. (JM)" (5/2012) K&L Notes: Not to be confused with the Napoleonic museum (Château de Malmaison) located just west of Paris, the 24 hectare Château Malmaison in Moulis, Gironde, was purchased by the Rothschilds in 1973 and lies adjacent to Château Clarke. The abandoned vineyard was renovated between 1974 and 1978, its soils now yielding distinctive and harmonious wines that are mellow, fruit... Read More »

2016 Domaine Renaud Mâcon-Charnay

Domaine Renaud is a small operation, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé and St. Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless steel for others. This value is a great alternative to California Chardonnay and an entry into white Burgundy.

2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc Top Pick!
2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Already a bit of evolution on the nose! Sweet, Earl Grey tea character. Mild and with sufficient gentle fruit on the mid palate though pretty chewy on the finish. Pretty low key." (4/2008) K&L Notes: Château Malescasse is an historic property ideally situated on gravel soils close to the Gironde River just north of Margaux. While it is true that 2007 will never have the power or authority of the finest vintages of the decade, the best wines display a remarkable ripeness and an admirable richness of texture. These are medium to full-bodied reds with soft tannins that ... Read More »

2016 Domaine Saint Damien Gigondas "Les Souteyrades" (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first line on my note for the 2016 Gigondas Les Souteyrades was “Crazy good!”. This cuvee is always one of the most exuberant and exotic of the Gigondas releases and the 2016 doesn’t disappoint with its huge nose of blueberries, orange rind, crushed rocks and exotic flowers. It’s a full-bodied, opulent beauty that’s going to be up with the crème de la crème of the vintage."
