2016 Domaine du Collier, Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley Into SALE $49.99 - Reg. $53.99
Geek Alert: Within a short period of time, Antoine Foucault is already making some of the most exciting wines in the Loire Valley. The Domaine du Collier was created in 1999 by Antoine (son of Charly Foucault from the famed Clos Rougeard). Having worked at Clos Rougeard for four years and still at the young age of 26 he took the opportunity to buy four-hectares of vines in the commune of Brézé in the best lieu-dit of 'La Ripaille'. The estate comprises 6 hectares with the vast majority of the estate planted to Chenin Blanc (including some 100 year old vines) and just under a hectare of Cabernet Franc. There is a substance to these wines that is impressive, but more importantly there is clarity to them, a precision that demands attention. These are powerful, mineral-driven wines that do not assault the palate, but seek to impress on grounds of their brilliant composition. 2016 has proven to be an epic vintage in the Loire for both Chenin and Cab Franc as the wines of Dom. du Collier clearly demonstrate. The Saumur Blanc is from low yielding old vines grown on predominantly clay limestone soils and is a very powerful and complex wine even while young. As with the best Chenin Blanc, the magic happens as the wines age and evolve and this will do so magnificently through 2027+. I’m stocking up on this Saumur Blanc, and you should too. Insanely delicious.

2007 Lopez de Heredia, Rioja Reserva, Viña Tondonia, Spain $42.89
Lopez de Heredia's Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva is one of Spain's greatest wines. In fact, if I were to only buy one red wine from Spain, it would be Viña Tondonia. With complexity and longevity that would embarrass most first growth Bordeaux and at about 1/10 the price, this is truly an amazing wine and equally amazing value. Lopez de Heredia is perhaps the most traditional winery in the world with little changing in the way they make wine over the last 130+ years. The 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is the great young Viña Tondonia Reserva - probably the best of the decade up to this point. The nose offers enticing aromas of dried cherries, cigar box, leather and faint vanilla bean. The perfectly balanced and supremely elegant palate is well structured with good acidity and refined tannins that frame the complex flavors of dusty minerals, plums, dried herbs, orange peel and hazelnuts. This wine has amazing depth. Buy a case and watch it develop and gain in complexity over the next 30 years. “Following the appreciation of the 2007 vintage from María José López de Heredia, the red 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is showing great, revealing unusual finesse and elegance. The nose is a little reticent but nuanced and complex, a little shy rather than explosive. The palate is medium-bodied, and the tannins are very refined. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Viña Tondonia Reserva of recent years.” - 96 Wine Advocate

2017 Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco “Normale” Piedmont $39.99net
Come and get it! “The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!” - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2018 Arterberry Maresh, Dundee Hills Pinot Noir Old Vines, Willamette Valley, OR $39.99
Comprised of old vine fruit from the highly esteemed Maresh and Weber vineyards, the Arterberry Old Vine offers a beautiful, and I mean beautiful aromatics that soar from the glass and announce that this is serious wine. The elegant palate is flat-out delicious with both red and dark fruit complementing the wine's underlying soil-driven nature. Outstanding balance and sneaky structure support this concentrated wine and make it suitable for aging up to 10+ years in a cool cellar. It's pretty damn delicious now, but if you can keep your hands off it, will continue to gain in complexity for years to come. One of my favorite 2018 Oregon Pinot Noirs - so far. “Pale ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Old Vines has an alluring perfume of blueberries, violets and dark cherries with accents of earth and amaro. The medium-bodied palate oers intense, broody fruits framed by muscular tannins and bright freshness, and it nishes long and full of avor. It's still youthfully coiled and may improve with another year or two in bottle.” - 94+ Wine Advocate
