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 Château Saint-Roch "Chimères" Côtes du Roussillon-Villages Top Pick!
2015 Château Saint-Roch "Chimères" Côtes du Roussillon-Villages

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Giving up jammy notes of black raspberries, licorice, smoked herbs and chocolate, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres (aged in demi-muid and concrete vates) needs to be snatched up by savvy readers. Full-bodied, deep and layered with incredible texture, I actually called this a mini SQN. I would gladly pay three to four times the going rate. Bravo! (JD)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: A blend of 40% Black Grenache, 30% Carignan, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.

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 »

As the wine softens with age, this generous fruitiness will comet through to give a deliciously ripe wine. Drink from 2019. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby.

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 »

2016 Bernier Chardonnay Val de Loire

This Chardonnay is produced by the three brothers Couillaud at the Château de la Ragotière, a few minutes from the Atlantic near the mouth of the Loire River, where the maritime climate is ideal for producing whites that are refreshing and bright. The Couillauds age most of this wine on its lees until bottling to add weight and texture with around 10% being barrel-fermented in French oak for the faintest touch of toastiness. Saveur magazine wrote about a previous vintage: "This value-priced Chardonnay tastes crisp and bright. It comes from the western Lo... Read More »

It's unusual to see Syrah-led blends coming out of the southern Rhone but this has become one of the signature wines of prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme. The fruit comes from the Vinsobres appellation in the northern part of the southern Rhone and the terraces of the Villefranchian subregion on the Gard side of the Rhone River. Imbued with the full flavor and richness that Syrah provides and from this exceptional 2016 vintage, you can't go wrong with this pleasing and intense French red.

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 »

This wine’s acidity may feel steely and unforgiving right now, but a day or two of air takes it into realms of wildflower honey and spring rain. The fruit fills out, saturating that lean frame with notes of beeswax and lanolin. Tuck this in your cellar and you’ll be happy to find it in ten years."

2017 Le Coeur de la Reine Sauvignon Blanc Touraine

A partnership between Rodolphe and Ludivine Marteau, the fourth generation to make wine from their family's estate. Of their 29 acres, 20 are devoted to Sauvignon Blanc. With vines averaging 20 years and very detail-oriented farming, they harvest the best quality fruit possible. Tasting notes from the importer: "The nose offers an intense 'fruit basket' dominated by citrus scents with a note of blackcurrant bud. In the mouth, all is suppleness and elegance. The final spicy note emphasizes the freshness and the generous length of this Touraine Sauvignon."

Coteaux Varois en Provence is in the western middle of the Provence appellation, and is ringed by hills and mountains to the south, north and west. The soils are mostly limestone and clay with the two main distinctions being altitude (most vineyards average 350 meters) and a continental climate influence. The surrounding mountains and hills act as natural barriers. Château Trians has the added benefit of having all north-facing vineyards preserving moderate and cooling temperatures.

The Millet Sancerre has been a favorite here at K&L for a long time. Grown in limestone-clay soil, the wine reflects the terroir wonderfully.

One of K&L's very finest buys from France. This is a reserve cuvée, made from Millet's chalkiest limestone soils. There is a long maceration at very low temperatures to extract as much flavor and character as possible. The resulting wine is intensely charged with stone fruit and minerality, with bright citrus notes.

In contrast to some '90s today, this is still in terrific shape and should continue to hold if not improve for years to come. In a word, lovely." (10/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "This famous Yellow Label is is in great shape with a really fresh and complex integrated feel to it from head to toe. The nose has plenty of lemon and grapefrui ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Renaud St-Véran Top Pick!
2016 Domaine Renaud St-Véran

Once in a great while you find wines from the Mâcon so good that tasting them blind you are forced to apply some much higher (and more expensive) appellation to it. Often, such a wine comes from hillside vineyards, with better drainage and cooler nights. This is such a wine, from the slopes below the giant monolith of rock that is Solutré. Domaine Renaud is a small operation, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé and St-Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless for others. T... Read More »

2015 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage Top Pick!
2015 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From one of my favorite estates in Crozes-Hermitage, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe comes from loamy (kaolins) soils and was brought up in 70% new French oak. Hermitage-like with its cassis and blackberry fruits, scorched earth and graphite aromatics, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, terrific purity, ripe tannin and outstanding length. It's a smoking good Crozes that will drink nicely for a decade or more. Unquestionably one of my favorite estates in Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine des Remizières is run by the Desmeures famil ...Read More »

1998 Haut Franquet, Moulis

We discovered this wine on our 2017 Bordeaux trip and it has finally arrived. A neighbor of Poujeaux, I must admit i have never seen the property, but what they did in 1998 is commendable. Some 1998 left bank wines are a bit coarse and tough-this, like the Poujeaux, is elegant and fruit driven. Perfect hamburger wine.

2017 Vignoble Dragon Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rosé Top Pick!
2017 Vignoble Dragon Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rosé

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "From vineyards at the foot of Mont Sainte-Victoire near Aix-en-Provence, this wine is tight, with a good balance between fruit and texture. Pineapple and apple flavors mingle in this lightly structured wine. Drink now. (RV)" (7/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even in a lineup of pale Provence rosés, the 2017 Cotes de Provence Sainte Victoire Rose from Vignobles Dragon stood out as being paler than the norm. It's a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Rolle, with crushed stone and peppery spice aromas. It's light to medium-bodied, hinting at peach fruit, then ends stony and firm, with a bit ...Read More »

2017 Domaine Lafage "Miraflors" Côtes du Roussillon Rosé

Jancis Robinson: "Pale Provençal pink. Very pretty colour. Very scented with pretty red fruits on the nose. I am tasting this in a bleak UK winter but this takes me straight to the Mediterranean. Cool dry and so fresh, with the finest of chalky textures to make it more than just a light fruity pink wine. Peachy and gentle on the palate and with a long fresh, dry finish. Pretty but not insubstantial. (JH)" (12/2017)

2015 Domaine du Vieil Orme "Inphini" Sauvignon Touraine Chenonceaux Blanc (Previously $15)

The history of this domaine goes back to 1849. Each generation has left its legacy: Laurent Benoist's great-grand father acquired the vineyards, his grand father started bottling the wine and his father developed a thorough knowledge of the terroir. Since 2009, he has made every effort to develop sustainable viticultural methods by reducing the amount of chemicals used in the vineyards, allowing the grass to grow between the rows, green harvesting, etc. Winery note: "Nice straw colour with green hues. The nose is dominated by aromas of quince and ripe tr... Read More »

2017 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of the 2017 Cos d'Estournel is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of incense, spice cake, star anise and plum preserves plus a perfumed hint of potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm yet wonderfully ripe, "sweet", fine-grained tannins at just 13% alcohol—something of a miracle in our modern times. The palate sports fantastic freshness and tons of energy e ...Read More »
