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 Chateau de L'Ou "Secret de Schistes" Côtes Catalanes (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Saturated black in color, the 2015 IGP Côtes Catalanes Secret de Schistes is reminiscent of Manfred Krankl’s SQN Syrahs with its deep, unctuous, layered profile. Cassis, chocolate, licorice, smoked herbs and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy beauty that just begs to be drunk. Possessing ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a great finish, it will be better in a year or two and keep for a decade. (JD)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: "One of my favorite estates in the Roussillon is Chateau de l’Ou, which is run with incredible passion and attention to detai... Read More »

2016 Domaine la Colombe Coteaux Varois en Provence Rosé Top Pick!
2016 Domaine la Colombe Coteaux Varois en Provence Rosé

Domaine de la Colombe is based in the village of Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, located at elevations between 900 and 1,300 feet. The terroir includes clay-limestone soils in combination with sandier soils in the valley. An exceptional vintage for the region, 2016 started with a pretty severe drought, with little to no water during the growing season. This led to very concentrated berries on the vines, high in extract but also acidity. Fortunately a little rain arrived just before the end of the growing season, keeping the vines from shutting down and al... Read More »

(5/2017) K&L Notes: Rimauresq is named for the river Real Mauresque that traverses the domaine. This 60 hectare property was reestablished in 1882 after the phylloxera epidemic devastated the region.

It goes on for minutes with dense fruit, yet it’s also vivid and showcases sublime tannins and acidity balance. Great finish."

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 »

Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne Top Pick!
Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne

Our best deal in pink bubbles! Fans of Billecart-Salmon take note: this is an elegant, dry style that is made entirely from estate-grown fruit in Brouillet. This Champagne is a blend of half and half Pinot Noir and Meunier. The color comes from 12% Meunier that is vinified red, from an old-vine plot that gets quite ripe. It is a very pretty tarnished pink color and has a lazy bead from over five years of aging on the lees. Our current selection has a 2012 base wine. It has gorgeous red cherry fruit on the nose and mid-palate, but still finishes snappy an... Read More »

2015 Domaine Tour Boisée Minervois Rouge

Just to the north of Corbieres and to the east of the walled city of Carcassonne, lies Minervois. The appellation has equally diverse soils like Corbieres but limestone and clay are its primary ones. This is a warm region with a very Mediterranean climate. The hills are covered with the local scrub, known as garrigue, forests and vineyards. Our newest producer from the region is Domaine Tour Boisée. The domaine dates back to 1826 and is still run by its descendants. Now farming about 200 hectares of vines, the winery was recently certified organic. This... Read More »

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.

2009 Saint-Paul, Haut-Medoc Top Pick!
2009 Saint-Paul, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* Deep crimson. Very healthy-looking. Glamorously deep colour and then just a slight whiff of odd oak and very dry and chewy on the end. Appetising and really quite opulent. Only problem is that ideally you should keep it a bit." (10/2011) James Suckling: "Very aromatic with plums and light jam. Full body, with slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish." (4/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby/garnet, with notes of sweet red and black currants, licorice and roasted herbs, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot boasts round, gener ...Read More »

2015 Domaine des Niales Rhedon-Marin Mâcon-Villages Vieilles Vignes Top Pick!
2015 Domaine des Niales Rhedon-Marin Mâcon-Villages Vieilles Vignes

This is a charming Chardonnay from a small grower in the Mâcon. Lionel Rhedon-Marin is a recent graduate of the College of Viticulture in the nearby village of Davaye, where Guffens trained. All of their young-vine fruit is sold in bulk to one of the better negociants, who is pleased to have it, since Lionel is such a careful grower. But their old-vine fruit, all over 45 years of age, is kept for the Domaine's wine, which is tantalizing and elegant. Our staff raved about the 2014, saying: "This Domaine has always over-delivered." And: "Every vintage the ... Read More »

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Top Pick!
Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

This is one of the best Champagnes we carry, regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters-acre Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this is Bonville's top of the line Champagne. The vines were planted in the late twenties or early thirties and the vineyard is ideally located in the mid slope of this Grand Cru village. The wine is made entirely from the 2009 harvest and is all Chardonnay. Olivier Bonville ferments and ages the juice in old oak casks before bottling. The only wine I can compare it to is the Clos de Mesnil from Krug. It is the perfec... Read More »

2016 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is another successful vintage from this estate. It is so finely structured that you notice the blackberry fruit more than the tannins, with a seam of crisp acidity throughout. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "Dense and chewy already with plenty of ripe tannins and bright fruit. Vivid acidity. Full body, a firm and silky texture and a flavorful finish. Lots going on. Excellent follow-up to the great 2015!" (4/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cantemerle has a tightly wound bouquet and it never quite delivers the detail and mineralité that some of its peers have produced in this vintage.

(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.

2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style. (RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game.
