2004 Tessier Cour Cheverny "La Porte Doree" (Previously $13.99)
This is from very old vines, 60-85 years of age, to be exact, and these aren't your average white grape vines, either. This wine is made from the rare Romorantin grape, grown on heavy clay soils. The wine is fermented in three to five-year old Burgundy barrels and undergoes partial malo-lactic fermentation, which lends a very rich, almost viscous mouthfeel to an otherwise extremely mineral white. You can taste this beautiful, esoteric white for days after you've enjoyed a glass. Wow! Philippe Tessier has just converted the domaine to totally organic viticulture, too.
