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 Top Pick!
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 »

(8/2017) K&L Notes: It's unusual to see Syrah-led blends coming out of the southern Rhône but this has become one of the signature wines of prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme.

It is far more classically structured out of the blocks than the relatively generous 2009 version, offering up a deep, complex and very youthful bouquet of menthol, green apple, a touch of tangerine, a very complex base of minerality and notes of dried flowers in the upper register.

Louis Bouillot Crémant 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 »

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Given the difficulty in the vintage, I was shocked at the quality of the 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes and it’s a beautiful wine. Made from 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah, it has medium to full-bodied richness to go with ample darker berry fruits, crushed herbs and pepper on the nose and palate. From 50+-year-old vines and tiny yields on the order of two tons per acre, it’s a no-brainer and will drink nicely for 2-3 years. (JD)" (4/2016)

2015 La Source du Ruault "La Coulee d'Aunis" Saumur Blanc

93 points Decanter: "An opulent and sweet nose frames a rich palate focused on minerality and a strong vein of fruit. (2017 DWWA)" (5/2017) K&L Notes: "Creating wines in harmony with nature" is the philosophy of Jean-Noël Millon, 7th generation family winemaker at this family run estate.

2006 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2006 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey's beautiful 2006 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a classic bouquet of hot rocks intermixed with graphite, cassis, incense, and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable but sweet tannin, impressive purity, and an alluring texture, it is relatively evolved for a 2006, so consumption over the next 15 years is recommended. (RP)" (2/2009) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep ruby-red. Wild, musky aromas of plum, dark cherry, truffle and game, lifted by menthol and licorice. Supple and swe ...Read More »

2015 Château de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône Top Pick!
2015 Château de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The assemblage of the 2015 Cotes du Rhone includes only 50% Grenache, with the balance made up of 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Cinsault and 5% Counoise. Perhaps as a result, it displays ample complexity on the nose and palate, with scents and flavors reminiscent of thyme, lavender and bay leaf alongside cherry and red berry fruit. It's medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, dry finish that elevates it well above ordinary. No, it's not a massive blockbuster, but it's a fine, elegant, unoaked table wine at a bargain price. (JC)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Just across ... Read More »

2015 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2015 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves

92 points James Suckling: "This shows plenty of brash woodwork on the nose with an undercurrent of cassis and blackcurrant. The palate has an assertive core of fresh, lithe and long tannins forming a focused, flavor-drenched finish. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Château de Chantegrive is another killer value in 2015 and is based on equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Loaded with notions of caramelized cherries, tobacco, truffle, and a hint of earth, this beauty hits the palate with a ripe, sexy, opulent style carrying polished tannin and plenty of length. Drink it anytime ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Cuvee Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Getting more than one exclamation in the notes, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul is a deep, rich yet vibrant red that offers a kaleidoscope of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, crushed flowers, Asian spices, and cured meats. It's more opulent and sexier than the 2010, fresher and purer than the 2007, has deep, full-bodied aromas and flavors, and a huge finish. It's a sensational, heavenly Châteauneuf-du-Pape that tops out my scale. This cuvée is 100% Grenache that was not destemmed and was aged in 20% demi-muids and the balance in concrete tanks. ...Read More »

2014 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac

91 points Wine Spectator: "Stylish, with a perfumed mix of raspberry, cassis, bergamot, rooibos tea and mineral notes. Offers a long, silky finish. Shows lots of charm. Drink now through 2021. 3,450 cases made. (JM)" (2/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slated for release this fall, the 2014 Lirac Baron Louis is velvety and open-knit, ready to drink now but capable of aging through 2025. Ample garrigue and spice notes give the black cherry fruit of this wine a welcome savory edge, finishing with some fine-grained tannins. (JC)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River ... Read More »

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Beauroy"

93 points Decanter: "White flowers and minerals on the nose. Delicate but vibrant expression with zingy acidity and gentle citrus and creamy notes." (6/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chablis 1Er Cru Beauroy has a delightful bouquet with limestone-scented citrus fruit that fan out from the glass. The palate is clean and fresh with a fine line of acidity, quite intense mineral-driven citrus fruit segueing into a poised, harmonious and stony finish. This is a well-crafted, delicious Beauroy.(NM)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: La Chablisienne is the largest producer in all of Chablis, possibly accounting for up to 35%... Read More »
