2011 Domaine Karydas Xinomavro Naoussa
Review Date: 2-18-2015
I canít get enough of this stunning Xinomavro. It truly has everything that Iím looking for in a red wine. It has elegance, power, spice, hints of earth, balanced structure, juicy yet persistent acidityÖ Most definitely a wine to be had with food. Decant for half a day or cellar for 5, 7, 10+ years.

2013 Santo Assyrtiko Santorini
Review Date: 2-18-2015
A fantastic example of a wine which can only be produced on one very specific and unique island, Santorini. I have fallen head over heels for Assyrtiko over the last many years and I canít say no to this. Perfectly ripe fruit with juicy mid palate concentration and of course, that volcanic minerality which brings lift and energy.

2012 Vincent Gaudry "Mťlodie de Vieilles Vignes" Sancerre (last of vintage)
Review Date: 2-17-2015
Iím a huge fan of Gaudry Sancerre in general. But this one is special. Fantastic old vine concentration and depth of fruit really makes this stand out. The balance of mineral and savory fruit flavors, for me, very thought provoking and inspiring.

2013 GR‹NER by Etz GrŁner Veltliner Kamptal (1L)
Review Date: 2-17-2015
Having a wine of this quality in a liter sized bottle makes me happy. A refreshing yet stylized crispy white that makes you feel like you can drink it all day long and never get tired of it. Fantastic house white and for any occasion.

2013 Franck Millet "Insolite" Sancerre
Review Date: 2-11-2015
I've been here at K&L long enough to try each and every vintage of this wine. And, I can honestly say that each and every vintage has gotten better and better. Not only is this Sancerre one of my favorites but, the entire staff loves it as well. Itís been a love affair that started off fast and hot and then happily progressed into something meaningful and long term.

2013 Patient Cottat "Le Grand Caillou" Sauvignon Blanc
Review Date: 1-6-2015
One of my go-to grab bottles when I need something crisp and crowd-friendly. Has all of the qualities that a wine guy like me looks for in a wine, but, without being overly geeky or cerebral. Clean, fresh and inviting is what youíll be getting in this wine. Yes, itís a great deal, but even more so, it is a fantastic wine.

Charles Baur Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosť
Review Date: 12-4-2014
How can you go wrong with a rosé sparkler ó especially under $20? Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this is jam-packed with crunchy red fruits and spicy strawberry sweetness. Delightful on its own, as an aperitif, with a first course salad, or with a plate of cheese and a hearty loaf of fresh-baked bread. The label should say "A Happy Rosé"

2011 Jean Max Roger "Cuveť C.M." Sancerre
Review Date: 5-29-2014
While the Jean-Max Roger wines are just gaining notoriety here in the U.S., over in France they have somewhat more of a cult following. The Roger family comes from a long lineage of winemakers dating back into the early 17th century. The estate is now run by Jean-Max and two of his three sons. The wines they craft are all together different and very much the same as the big names you may be familiar with. They have all of the wonderful expressions of terroir and verve that you would expect but, without being flashy, in your face or, over the top. I love the fact that these wines are chalk full of complexity and drive all the while being understated and classy.
