2016 Charles Baur Muscat Alsace
Review Date: 10-18-2018
I love a Muscat as a change of pace from the other aromatic whites. A Muscat offers a slightly different taste profile as it tends to lean towards orange and tangerine flavors rather than peach, mango and apricot flavors that Gewurztraminers do. The 2016 Charles Baur Muscat Alsace is killer deal with sexy aromas of orange flowers and spice while the palate bursts with tangerine and mandarin flavors.

2016 Charles Baur Gewurztraminer "Fronenberg"
Review Date: 10-18-2018
For an entry-level Gewurztraminer this wine is outstanding. It starts off with a fabulous array of white flower and fresh picked orchard fruits. Never cloying or blousy this wine has a bone-dry feel and excellent structure and complexity. The ideal marriage of an aromatic white and fruit and mineral notes.

2015 Charles Baur Riesling "Cuvee Charles" Alsace
Review Date: 10-18-2018
An absolute ridiculous bargain the 2015 Charles Baur "Cuvee Charles" Riesling is a fantastic example of the high quality of Alsatian Riesling that can be had at incredibly low prices. This wine sings with citrus, floral and mineral notes with a zippy palate that energizes itself thanks to a nice punch of acidity and orchard fruits. Robust and clean this is a great choice for the Riesling enthusiast or the beginner just starting to walk down the Riesling path.

2016 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages
Review Date: 09-12-2018
This is a wine that punches far above its weight-class. Served blind I would have easily guessed that this was a Chateauneuf-du-Pape because of its seductive, Grenache dominant nose. Beautiful aromas of raspberry kirsch, crushed volcanic rock and spice notes. The palate is silky-smooth with a cool rush of red fruits, minerals,, spice and garrigue notes. This is an ideal wine for those who want the Chateauneuf-du-Pape experience at a Cotes-du-Rhone price.

2017 Domaine Louis Moreau Chablis
Review Date: 09-05-2018
Wow! This is a stunning value from Louis Moreau. As the pricing of Chablis' has begun to rise thanks to demand and back-to-back small vintages this is a wonderful bargain. A beautiful Chablis loaded with citrus notes, salinity, minerality and a zippy finish this is the ideal under $20 Chablis that deserves a place on your dinner table.

Easily the best buy for under $20 in our Burgundy department the 2015 Faiveley Bourgogne Rouge is a stunning value.

2008 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace
Review Date: 06-27-2018
This wine is spectacular! How rare is it to be able to buy a reference point wine that is considered to be one of the greatest wines from a region for under $60? The Trimbach Riesling "Cuvee Frederic Emile" is one of Alsace's greatest wines and the 2008 might be the best rendition yet. This wine is loaded with petrol, iodine and citrus notes with a racy palate of crushed rocks, menthol, nut skin, white grapefruit and saline flavors. The energy here is off the charts with an incredibly long finish that almost vibrates on the palate because of the complexity and acidity that this beauty packs. I have already consumed 3 bottles of this beautiful elixir and intend to buy many more to enjoy over the warm weather days that lie ahead.
Drink from 2018 to 2018

2016 Julien Schaal Riesling Grand Cru "Sommerberg Granite"
Review Date: 06-18-2018
Wow! My mind is blown....An Alsatian Grand Cru for under $20 is an almost unbelievable bargain. To be able to get a wine from one of the top vineyard sources in all of Alsace for under $20 is the kind of holy grail deal we're all inevitably searching for in the wine business. This wine is loaded with white flower, pear and flint aromas on the nose while the palate displays good energy and lift with orchard fruits, golden delicious apple and pithy flavors. There's impressive complexity as this wine elegantly unfolds across the palate that leads to a long, satisfying finish.

2017 Domaine Renaud Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes
Review Date: 06-13-2018
The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes starts off with vivid aromas of lime, acacia and flint notes. The palate is a focused beam of fruit cocktail, lime zest and wet stone. The rush of flavors and complexity here give the wine an energy and feel that make it almost irresistible and such a joy to drink. This is easily one of my favorite white wines I have drunk this year including some Grand Crus and Premier Cru offerings.

2016 Domaine Renaud St-Véran
Review Date: 06-13-2018
The St-Véran takes everything up a notch with a nose that brims with flint, white flowers and lime blossom notes. The palate is focused, with favors of lime zest, green fig and stone fruits. Great energy and lift give this wine a lightweight feel when in reality it is dense and packed with both fruit and mineral notes. A gorgeous white that completely over-delivers for less than $20.

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Côte de Léchet"
Review Date: 06-13-2018
This wine offers up a ton of rich citrus fruit, minerality and subtle spice notes with an underlying power that slowly unfurls as the wine comes to life in the glass. A rich and powerful Chablis that has impressive intensity of fruit and minerality.

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Vaulorent"
Review Date: 06-13-2018
This is sourced from the Vaulorent vineyard, which is the only vineyard located on the same hill as the Grand Cru vineyards. To be literally a stone’s throw away from Grand Cru vineyards and pay less than a third of the price for a wine of this quality is mind-blowing. This wine is packed with crisp citrus fruit notes, wet stone, zippy minerality and a purity that shines through from the first sniff all the way to the finish on the back of the palate.

2016 Domaine Paul Pernot Bourgogne Chardonnay
Review Date: 06-13-2018
The 2016 Bourgogne Blanc displays its royal bloodline with a nose full of orchard fruit, spice and hazelnut notes. The palate is a rich combination of lemon crème, hazelnuts, brioche and baked apples with a Puligny-like feel at the end. This is a great wine for those of us who want to drink Premier Cru quality white Burgundy while paying Bourgogne blanc prices.

2016 Domaine Paul Pernot Bourgogne Aligoté
Review Date: 06-13-2018
A fantastic example of Aligoté, the much rarer “other white grape of Burgundy,” with zesty notes of crushed rock, vitamin and pine notes. Aligoté in the wrong hands can come off lean and sharp but here it is fresh and lively with green fruits and bright acidity.

2016 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Myglands" (Monopole)
Review Date: 06-13-2018
Faiveley is doing some amazing things in Mercurey. They built a winery in Mercurey, which means they no longer have to truck north to Gevrey-Chambertin all their fruit for vinification--the fruit never leaves the village and can be picked at optimal levels and vinified immediately. The results have been jaw-dropping, with a level of quality I have never seen from Mercurey wines, which are well-known as being hard and angular in nature. Now these latest offerings from Faiveley display beautiful red fruit and are amazingly open and ready-to-drink in their youth. The Myglands is seductive on the nose with aromas of red cherry compote, cinnamon and hints of crushed red roses. The palate is packed with gorgeous red fruits and subtle spice notes along with great persistence on the palate and a fresh, long and lively finish.

2016 Hugel "Gentil" Alsace
Review Date: 05-18-2018
Get ready for Summer! The 2016 Hugel Gentil is the perfect wine for when the days start to get a bit warmer. A beautiful nose of white flowers and stone fruits gives way to an energetic palate of grapefruit, gooseberries, peach and fig flavors. A blend of Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc/Auxerrois, and Pinot Gris, plus a little Gewürztraminer, Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace this pretty, lifted and rounded white has a little to offer everyone and an unbeatable price of only $10.99.

Review Date: 04-19-2018
A stunning Morgon, the 2016 Lucien Lardy Morgon "Cote du Py" is a great example of the quality of the 2016 Beaujolais vintage. More classic than 2015 with cooler, wetter weather the 2016s are fresher and more lively than the rich and powerful 2015s. The 2016 is loaded with sexy aromas of black plum and spice while the palate is an intoxicating mixture of black fruits, plum and baking spices. The wine finish with excellent lift and stays on the palate for almost a minute after the last sip fades away.

2016 Lucien Lardy "Les Thorins" Moulin-à-Vent
Review Date: 04-19-2018
If there is any village in Beaujolais that could pass for Burgundian in style it is Moulin-a-Vent. A beautiful nose of fresh cranberry, rose hips, spice and morning dew leap from the glass. On the palate this beauty exudes delicate red fruit flavors as well as spice and mineral notes. Great body and lift carry this wine all the way thru to the finish which reveals a surprisingly weighty wine. This wine could easily pass for a fine village-level Burgundy.

Wow! This is a very impressive Riesling, from the very first sniff of the glass I knew I had something very special. A vibrant nose of beeswax, stone fruit, orange oil and petrol jump from the glass. On the palate the wines has depth, complexity and unfurls across the palate to reveal pithy orchard fruits and crunchy mineral notes. If you're in search of a fantastic Grand Cru Riesling that won't break the bank this is the wine for you.

Domaine Frederic Esmonin continues their streak of producing wines that punch way above their price-point with the 2016 Domaine Frederic Esmonin Gevrey Chambertin Clos Prieur. A fantastic example of the quality of the 2016 vintage this wine displays wonderful aromatics with notes of red fruits and spice with a core of red berry and mineral-laced flavors.

Enjoy this stunning value and be sure to let it breathe a few hours prior to drinking so it can truly strut its stuff.

2016 Domaine Frédéric Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Estournelles St-Jacques"
Review Date: 01-22-2018
I love this wine, especially for the price! This has everything you could ever want in a top-flight 1er cru Burgundy. The nose is alive with notes of bright red berry, spice and that tell-tale cola note all fine Gevrey-Chambertins have. Layer after layer of complex fruit notes mingle with spice and earth notes to create a breathtaking Gevrey-Chambertin. There's a powerful core of fruit, tannin and acidity here and even though this is showing well now, I have to believe we are still just scratching the surface of what this wine will eventually reveal. A great showing for one of the first 2016s to reach our shelves.

2016 Domaine Frédéric Esmonin Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Review Date: 01-22-2018
While the 2016 Mazy is a bit more feminine the 2016 Esmonin Ruchottes Chambertin is definitely masculine in style. Notes of black fruits, spice and even a slight graphite note pepper the nose of this wine while on the palate there is ample weight and delineation. Baking spice and dark fruits meld with a coiled palate and firm tannins. A big wine that definitely needs time to completely unfurl.

Fantastic balance, superb complexity and great persistence make this a great introduction to the wonderful 2016 Burgundy vintage.

If you're a fan of Marcoux then you are definitely in for a treat with the 2016 Marcoux Cotes du Rhone. This wine starts off with an intoxicating nose of red licorice and candied red raspberries and then deftly pivots to fresh flower and earth notes. There's a distinctly Burgundian feel here with high-toned red fruits, remarkable balance and harmony and an elegance rarely found in a Cotes du Rhone. The wine finish with impressive purity and freshness and it lingers ever so slightly on the delightful finish. This is a must buy for any wine lover who is a fan of Grenache done the right way.

Review Date: 01-02-2018
I love this wine! It has everything I look for: depth, precision, balance, complexity and most importantly it tastes really good. Chile is one of the many regions around the world where you get great bang for your buck and the 2015 Chateau Los Boldos Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect example. A suave nose of mint, earth and dried herbs deftly gives way to a palate that just oozes gorgeous dark berry fruit, spice, subtle mocha notes and a touch of earth and herbs. This is a wonderful, food friendly Cabernet Sauvignon that totally over delivers given its modest price.

If the incredible quality of the 2016 Delas Freres "St. Esprit" Cotes du Rhone is indicative of what you can expect from Southern Rhone in 2016-Hold onto your hats!!

2016 Domaine Lafage "Novellum" Chardonnay Pays d'Oc
Review Date: 11-17-2017
Easily one of the best white wine values I have tasted this year, the 2016 Domaine Lafage Novellum is the epitome of what the Languedoc/Roussillon is capable of producing. This rich, textured and complex white is layered in tropical fruit notes and baked apple flavors. The wine unfolds with a seamless feel as fruit note after fruit note blends with soft oak nuances. This is an outstanding value that pretty much blows away anything from California that is even remotely close to its price.

A stunning example of what Beaujolais can and should be. Beautifully fruited with racy notes of wet earth, herbs and spices, this delightful red wine can be slightly chilled and enjoyed with a multitude of cuisines. It is light enough to pair with fish courses such as salmon and sea bass, and it can also pair with pork, veal and some lighter beef dishes. Fresh and fruity but in no way insipid, this complex red is incredibly versatile.

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Review Date: 09-08-2017
The 2005 Lynch Bages Pauillac is exactly what you want from one of Bordeaux's premier properties. 2005 was a fantastic vintage in Bordeaux and the 2005 Lynch Bages is a monumental wine. Blood red in color with spice and scorched earth notes the palate slowly unwinds to savory berry fruit notes and fine, smooth tannins. Notes of black licorice and mocha complete the long, smooth finish. This is a classic Lynch Bages in every sense.

The evidence is in the glass...Inglenook is officially back to its glory days of the 40s, 50s & 60s with the 2013 Inglenook Ruther Cabernet Sauvignon. This used to be called the "Cask" Cabernet Sauvignon but now enjoys the Rutherford moniker. The barrels for this wine were culled out of the production of the Iglenook Rubicon the winery's flagship offering. This is an impeccable red, with perfect harmony of tannins, fruit and structure. A gorgeous red, this has the "old-school" Napa Valley cabernet Sauvignon feel that we're always looking for.

Malescot St. Exupery is a top five producer in Margaux on an annual basis and the 2015 Malescot St. Exupery is no exception. At $49.99 this is the best value of the 2015 Bordeaux vintage in my opinion. To get a wine of this quality for under $50 is the exact reason to buy Bordeaux En Primeur. A beautiful wine packed with ripe red fruits, hints of chocolate and mint this is a silky smooth wine that is irresistible. Always a favorite they have once again knocked it out of the park!
