Le P'tit Paysan was founded by Ian Brand who got his start as assistant winemaker at Bonny Doon before moving on to other work at other wineries and launch is own brand to showcase the quality of the vineyards of Monterey County and other nearby AVAs. In the cellar Ian’s touch is very light, serving mostly to reveal the power and poise of the fruit. The Jack’s Hill Chardonnay sees some oak aging, but with a very small percentage of new oak so that the overall contribution of the oak is to give a richer palate texture to the wine. The aromas are of pear ...

91 points James Suckling: "This well-structured but sleek Bordeaux blend from the Central Coast is brimming with sour-cherry and blackberry aromas. The gentle tannins are already well integrated and this has a very food-friendly balance. Drink or hold." (05/2019) K&L Notes: The blend is 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, brought up in a mix of French, American, and Russian oak.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Randall Grahm’s ever-evolving ideology shifted again for the new label and blend of this bottling, which includes 52% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 13% Syrah. Aromas of plum, cracked pepper, crumpled carnations and dried mint lead into a bright, refreshing palate of hibiscus, anise and a curry-like spice. *Top 100 Wines of 2019* (MK)" (10/2019) 91 points Vinous: "Deep, shimmering red. Displays lively red berry, cherry and floral qualities on the nose, along with building suggestions of exotic spices and succulent herbs. Juicy a...

Jolie-Laide is a one-man operation based in a Sebastopol winery where winemaker Scott Schultz makes only 2,500 cases of wine a year under his own label. The name Jolie-Laide translates loosely to “Pretty-Ugly”, a French term of endearment to describe something that is unconventionally beautiful. Scott’s passion for wine was ignited when moved to Napa from Chicago in 2007. Having had extensive experience in the restaurant business, he switched gears upon his arrival in California to lead the wine program at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. Working a harvest and a...

Vinous: "This winery, with longtime winemaker Bill Brosseau at the helm, makes as wide a range of regional and single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs as any producer that I know outside of the large Burgundy négociants. That’s impressive, by itself, but even more impressive is the fact that a lot of those single-site wines are made, year in and out, and they are consistently of very high quality. (JR)" (08/2019)

Winemaker's Notes: "Pétulant naturel is Birichino's querulous answer to how to produce a complex and delicious lightly "pétulant" wine using traditional lo-fi methods that don't require luxury-group funded production equipment nor marketing fluff. From a vineyard planted just shy of 3 decades ago up against the Santa Lucias of the Salinas Valley, the 2019 is 100% Malvasia Bianca with just a touch of malvasia juice that was added while it was actively fermenting. The result is something lightly pétulant- subtly refreshing, soft and fragrant. Each bottle i...

Wine Enthusiast: "Delicate and light on the nose, this bottling begins with crisp aromas of squeezed grapefruit and Meyer lemon peel. It's clean and down the middle on the palate, showing flavors of apple slices drizzled in lemon juice and lime zest. (MK)" (01/2020) Wine Spectator: "Focused, with pure-tasting Fuji apple and Asian pear flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. Lemongrass notes show on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2022. (KM)" (02/2020)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling by Ian Brand always packs bang for the buck, but he really nailed it in the 2017 vintage. Clean and delicate aromas of Asian pear, lemon rind and edgy chalk lead into a racy, crisp and tightly wound palate. Flavors of grapefruit, nectarine, blanched almond and sea salt are delicious. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (02/2019) K&L Notes: This wine is recommended among a selection of Chardonnays in our September 16, 2019 newsletter: "The Golden Era of Golden State Chardonnay." K&L Domestic wine buyer Ryan Woodhouse says: ...

The Chalone estate is one of the most unique and distinct in the state of California as it is the sole winery in its eponymous AVA high atop the Gavilan Mountain Range that rises above the Salinas Valley in California's Central Coast. Winery tasting notes: "Opens up with nuances of stone fruit, wet rock and a hint of oak. Our Burgundian style Chardonnay boasts a unique minerality and exceptional complexity derived from mature vineyards coupled with ancient limestone that runs through the Chalone AVA."
Price: $19.95

Winemaker's Notes: "This block of Malvasia Bianca is approaching its fourth decade up on bench on the Santa Lucia side of the Salinas Valley. From cuttings originally brought to California from Calabria at the turn of the last century, it remains the most incredibly aromatic selection of this variety we've ever encountered. We harvested at night, and allowed it to sit, skins in contact with the juice until the following afternoon before pressing and fermenting in stainless steel."

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Exotic yellow-spice notes meet with lean lime pith on the light and crisp nose of this old-vine expression from a historic winery. Meyer-lemon rind and juice show brightly on the palate, where grippy chalkiness complements rich lemon-curd flavors. (MK)" (11/2016) Wine Spectator: "The peach and honey flavors are accented by a squirt of juicy lime juice in this fleshy and succulent version, with a touch of toasted almond. Very smooth and creamy on the refreshing finish. (MW)" (11/2016)

This limited production bottling of Chalone 2018 Estate Chenin Blanc was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1919. Vines this old produce miniscule yields but extraordinary fruit resulting in a rare opportunity to try what we consider liquid gold. Only 188 cases produced. From the winery: "The 2018 vintage was highlighted by its moderate growing season and average rainfall, resulting in grapes with extra hang time. Cooperative weather during the flowering stage increased fruit yields and created crisp refreshing wines with wonderfully ripe flavors...Our 1...

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Syrah Brousseau is all about intensity and power. The pure richness of the fruit totally covers the 50% whole clusters. Dark blue and black fruit, licorice, smoke and dark spices blossom in an immediate wine endowed with pure explosive energy. The Brousseau is going to require a bit of patience, maybe more than a bit. This section of the vineyard is planted with clones from Chave. (AG)" (01/2015)

Winemaker's Notes: "The Double L Vineyard is at the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Here the ultra-cool climate and porous, mountainside soils provide ideal conditions for growing world-class Riesling. Our Riesling grapes were foot stomped and left on the skins for 14 hours, then pressed. Freshness and bright fruit character were preserved by cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was arrested by quickly chilling down the tanks to achieve an off-dry style and low alcohol. In the glass, the 2019 Morgan Riesling displays a ...

Winery Notes: A blend of 76% Pinot Noir, 12% Syrah, 7% Cinsault, 5% Grenache. This beautiful still rosé was fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep the wine crisp and bright, then fined and filtered. Aromas of rose petals, violets, ripe strawberry, fresh sage, saline minerality. The coastal pinot noir gives this wine that peak-of-season strawberry flavor that you’d pay $10 a basket for at the farmer’s market. This edition is made even more special by the addition of syrah, grenache and cinsault - creating a scent memory of a fresh ocean breeze runn...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark Bing cherry and berrycandy aromas are beautifully ripe, fresh and run on the nose of this bright expression of Monterey, always one of the region’s better Pinot Noirs for the price. That fresh cherry tone picks up light cola and mace on the delicious palate, where acidity pumps into the vanilla-kissed finish. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (05/2020) K&L Notes: Winery note: "The regional blend of vineyard sites contribute to the complexity and delicacy of this classically inspired Pinot Noir formed from a near perfect Californi...

Winery Notes: "Made of 100% Pinot Noir from Monterey County. Fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep wine crisp and bright. Fined and filtered. Delicate, frizzante style bubbles.

93 points Vinous: "Light shimmering yellow. Aromas of Meyer lemon and pear take on subtle chamomile, ginger and floral nuances as the wine unfolds. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense, spice-laced citrus and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors and a hint of salinity that builds on the back half. At once concentrated and lithe, delivering firm closing cut, resonating floral and spice notes and impressive persistence. This exceptional bubbly wine spent four years on its lees and got 12 g/l of dosage, but it comes off dry. (JR)" (11/2019) ...

Wine Enthusiast: "Always one of the better priced Chardonnays on the market, this bottling offers pinpoint aromas of lemon juice, toast, apple and a tight white-rock minerality on the nose. Seared lemon and roasted apple flavors are enhanced by lime-skin and struck stone flavors on the sip. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (03/2020) Wine Spectator: "Plush green apple, pear and white peach flavors are supported by fresh acidity. The well-framed finish offers a flurry of spice details, with hints of honey. Drink now through 2023. *Best Values* (KM)" (02/2020)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Gravenstein apple, fresh pear and a hint of gardenia make for a clean and broad nose in this always solid bottling. It’s plush and round on the palate, where baked white-peach and vanilla flavors are lifted by clove and cinnamon accents. (MK)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: Annually one of our best-selling value Chardonnays at K&L, Talbott's 2018 Kali Hart is everything you'd expect from this classic, fan-friendly California Chardonnay. Rich, luscious orchard and stone fruits are complemented by just the right touch of oak spice in a ...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "With dynamic and complex expressions like this, it's a wonder why people started stripping the naturally pink hue that Pinot Gris provides. The pinkish orange wine delivers aromas of strawberry sorbet and rosebuds and then opens onto a palate of light raspberry and watermelon. There is ample tannic tension as well. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: Pinot Gris sourced from the beautiful Eden Rift vineyard in Cienega Valley. Grown in a mix of decomposed granite and limestone soil, this aromatic variety excels here....

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light and bright, this bottling from one of the appellation’s northernmost and coolest sites shows honeysuckle and more white flowers on the subtle, delicate and yet inviting nose. There’s a vibrant tension on the sip, where chalky white-rock flavors dance with lemon zest for a laser-sharp expression. (MK)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: From Matt Kettmann: "Ian Brand, The SF Chronicle’s 2018 Winemaker of the Year, is quite possibly the most interesting vintner in Monterey County today.

This is light in texture, soft and smooth but with concentrated flavours of cherry, blackcurrant and oak spice. There's a sense of underlying power kept restrained by a juiciness and balanced minerality. I really like it.

Raised in all stainless steel.

90 points Vinous: "Light yellow. Mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of jasmine, vanilla and fennel. Palate-caressing Meyer lemon, pear and honeysuckle flavors are braced by a chalky mineral quality that builds with air. Shows very good depth as well as delicacy and finishes with zesty, minerally cut and floral-accented persistence. This wine was raised for five months in oak barrels, 10% of them new. (JR)" (11/2019)

About this producer: "La Marea, made by Ian Brand of Le P’tit Paysan, is a tiny winery focused on single vineyard Spanish varietals “rooted in the sea, the soil and the sea air”. Brand believes Monterey and San Benito to be some of the most ideally suited climates in California for Spanish varietals like Albariño, Grenache (Garnacha) and Mourvedre (Monastrell). The proximity to the cool ocean waters Monterey Bay provides an optimal climate for Albarino while the warmer San Antonio and San Benito Valleys closely resemble the Spanish regions where these ...

The cépages here is forty-four percent cabernet sauvignon, thirty-eight percent merlot, eight percent cabernet franc, six percent malbec and four percent petit verdot, so this is a Bordeaux-inspired blend that includes all the major varieties found on the Gironde. It includes forty-two percent whole clusters this year and was raised in one-third new oak. The wine delivers a complex and youthful bouquet of cassis, dar...
