Sec Wine Specials

 

The Sec Wines Newsletter features wines that we're really excited to offer you.  These are wines worthy of a special feature due to their high quality to value ratio and just plain deliciousness.  Enjoy!


2016 Pernot Belicard, Beaune Blanc, Pertuisots 1er Cru, White Burgundy $49.89
This is first class White Burgundy. Pernot-Belecard is a small domaine that has not yet caught the attention of the international wine press - a blessing for White Burgundy lovers who don’t like paying $75-$150 for similar quality premier cru wines. 2016 is a classic vintage for Cote d’Or whites with the only downside being the considerably reduced production due to devastating spring frosts. With impeccable balance, Pernot-Belicard’s Pertuisots is an intense combination of perfectly ripe Chardonnay fruit, lemony-acidity and a strong mineral core that takes ahold of the mid palate and runs through the finish. Delicious now, this wine’s Corton-Charlemagne-like gout de terroir will only become more magnified over the next seven to ten years. A great deal.

2015 Denis Bachelet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vieilles Vignes, Red Burgundy $125.89
I’m afraid Denis Bachelet doesn’t fly under the radar as he is a bonafide Burgundian rock star. His entire estate consists of only four hectares and he only works with old vine fruit; in the case of his Gevrey-Chambertin V.V., the vines were planted in 1932 & 1937. This wine is just a baby. The nose is tight and correct, only now starting to offer up scents of inimitable Gevrey-Chambertin earth. The palate is intense with excellent concentration, and piercing Pinot Noir fruit backed by silky tannins and and a secondary helping of Gevrey earth. Enjoy through 2035. "Here the expressive nose offers up both upper and lower register aromas of pomegranate, red cherry, earth and underbrush. The notably rich and enveloping medium weight flavors possess excellent delineation and a subtle minerality that carries over to the extract-rich and mouth coating finale. This is first-rate and should drink well both young and with 6 to 8 years of age. Recommended.” - 92 Burghound. Very limited.

2016 RIDGE, Lytton Springs, Dry Creek Valley Red, Sonoma County $39.89 (Due by 10/9)
This is classic old-school Ridge Lytton Springs! A blend of 69% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah with a dash of Carignan and Matrao (Mourvedre), Ridge’s 2016 Lytton Springs has all the intense boysenberry fruit on the nose and palate that made this one of my favorite wines when I first got into wine in the early 1990s. “The 2016 Lytton Springs is a powerful, dense wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, new leather, cloves, licorice and menthol flesh out. Deep, plush and richly textured, the 2016 Lytton Springs packs a real punch. The 23% Petite Sirah is felt in the wine's darkness and overall gravitas. There is more than enough richness and structure to support many years of fine drinking. What a gorgeous wine this is. Drink through 2041” 95 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2015 Twill, Willamette Valley Chardonnay, Molly’s Vineyard, OR $35.89
Yes, Sec Wines is championing Willamette Valley Chardonnay once again.  The best Oregon Chardonnays are the closest thing there is to elite White Burgundy and even the best Oregon Chardonnays (and this is one of them) cost just a fraction of great White Burgundy.  Aromas of wet stones, ginger and a faint hint of rosemary segue to the ideally-balanced palate with notes of apricot and tarte-tatin framed by good acidity and strong mineral core.  But what really sets this Chardonnay apart is it wonderful sev, or mid-palate texture which is at once dense, but not heavy.  Enjoy now and watch it gain in complexity over the next five to seven years. Only 25 cases made.

2014 Davide Carlone, Boca, Alto Piemonte, Italy $34.89
As local and traditional as it gets, Davide Carlone (who has never been on a plan) has held tight to the traditions of the glorious times past of Boca’s not so distant history. Since the late 80s, he has labored to keep Boca alive, clearing woods and planting more and more Nebbiolo and Vespolina where it once thrived. If you are unfamiliar with the wines of the Alto Piemonte, they are based on Nebbiolo and share many of the same attributes that Barolo and Barbaresco do, but have their own unique qualities and are often more ethereal. They can be mesmerizing - and while they can age like their neighbors to the south in the Langhe, they usually don't require such extensive aging. Davide Carlone’s Boca (a tiny 37 acre D.O.C.) is such a wine. Approximately 75% Nebbiolo and 25% Vespolina, Carlone’s Boca offers beautiful fruit up front with notes of underbrush, dried herbs and earth in the background. As this wines ages, the earth-driven tones will become more accentuated. Enjoy over the next 20 years with all the same dishes you would drink Barbaresco or Barolo with.

2016 Lyrarakis, Dafni (dry white), Psarades Crete, Greece $18.89
Geek Alert: This is the first wine from Greece ever to grace the Sec Wines’ newsletter. 100% Dafni from the estate Psarades vineyard in central Crete is a true one-of-a-kind. Lyrarakis planted Dafni in their estate vineyard to keep it from going extinct - so really, a one-of-a-kind. I love the savory nose which smells just like fresh rosemary with a hint of sage and laurel in the background. This wine sees a short ten hours of skin contact giving it great texture on the palate which echoes the aromatic themes. Not only is this wine fascinating because of its uniqueness, it’s also delicious and very food-friendly. I’ve already enjoyed it with grilled chicken and sea bass (over rosemary, of course) and look forward to enjoying it wth other goodies from the ocean like squid, octopus, prawns, tuna and swordfish. I can’t help it- I’m hungry.

2015 Château La Croix Saint André, Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux $19.89
Looking for a Bordeaux that’s already drinking well and is affordable? Here you go. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the La Croix Saint André is rich, plush and bursting with plummy fruit and a hint of earthiness all framed by velvety tannins.

2013 Campogiovanni, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany $49.89
San Felice's Brunello from their Campogiovanni estate is always a top Brunello.  From the ulna-classic 2013 vintage, Campogiovanni Brunello offers intense fruit and great complexity with lots of structure and aging potential. “Good full ruby-red. Ripe red cherry, leather, faded flowers, sandalwood and menthol on the nose. Nicely sweet and smooth on the palate, offering supple, ripe red berry flavors complicated by mocha and coffee. Not especially complex, but creamy, showing the suave side of Sangiovese from the warmer reaches of the Montalcino southwestern subzones of Sant’Angelo Scalo and Sant’Angelo in Colle. This strapping, large-framed Brunello finishes with polished tannins and persistent sweetness.” - 92 Vinous + 93 Wine Spectator + 94 James Suckling
