Billecart-Salmon, Brut Reserve Champagne ~  SALE $42.89 (Reg. 51.89
Ever taste a wine a gazillion times and suddenly it turns your head?  That's what happened here while tasting it a couple weeks ago.  The base vintage is 2015 with 60% being reserve wines from past vintages.  The nose is captivating and complex while the palate is very well-balanced with pristine fruit and a streak of minerals running through it.  "Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, orange zest and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering energetic redcurrant and blood orange flavors that show good concentration and a supple texture. A mineral nuance adds bite to the finish, with the floral note echoing." - 90 Vinous - Jump now!  The price of this wine is too low to be listed on our website, so please order by responding to this email.

Billecart-Salmon, Brut Rosé Champagne ~ SALE $69.89 net (Reg. $79.89)
This is the single most iconic Brut Rosé Champagne of all.  For many Champagne lovers, this is the standard-bearer for Rosé Champagne.  The Billecart-Salmon Rosé has more Chardonnay in it than most rosés which gives it greater cut and makes it more food-friendly without losing its classic aperitif quality.  "Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, with suave mineral and smoky lees notes adding complexity. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing very good punch to its strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. Opens up smoothly with air and picks up a bitter rhubarb quality that lingers onto the long, tightly focused finish. This bottling showed more brawny character than many past renditions of this cuvée, but with no lack of vivacity." - 92 Vinous  The price of this wine is too low to be listed on our website, so please order by responding to this email

2019 Huet, Vouvray Sec, Terroir-Packs, Loire Valley $213.50 six-pack / $405.00 12-pack
From the great 2019 Loire Valley Chenin vintage, these 100% Chenin Blancs express the taut minerality, aromatic purity and laser-etched terroir expression that are the birthright of the Sec wines from Huet. Huet’s Le Haut Lieu, Le Mont and Clos du Bourg vineyards are widely considered to be of Grand Cru status, and it’s easy to see why with these great wines. In the world of truly great, age-worthy wines, these Vouvrays represent monumental values. Terroir 12-pack $405.00 4 bottles each of Le Haut Lieu, Le Mont & Clos du Bourg Sec Terroir 6-pack $213.50 2 bottles each of Le Haut Lieu, Le Mont & Clos du Bourg Sec Not that it’s needed, but here are some reviews from the wine press on these wines: 2019 Huet, Vouvray Sec, Clos du Bourg “The 2019 Sec Clos du Bourg is a wine of stature and vertical build. There is real gravitas to the orchard fruit, spice and earthy flavors. Tasted blind, Clos du Bourg might be confused with a red wine such is its feeling of volume and structure. Far from an easygoing Vouvray, Clos du Bourg is a very serious wine. I loved it. In a word: marvelous. In three words: don't miss it. Drink through 2020-2034.” - 95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous & 97 Wine Advocate 2019 Huet, Vouvray Sec, Le Mont “The 2019 Sec Le Mont is precise and beautifully cut. A wine of laser-like focus, Le Mont dazzles with its purity. Citrus peel and floral accents are nicely lifted, but it is the wine's energy that impresses most. Le Mont is a subtle wine that speaks softly, but what it has to say is priceless.” - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous & 94+ Wine Advocate 2019 Huet, Vouvray Sec, Le Haut Lieu “The 2019 Sec Le Haut-Lieu is classy, polished and simply impeccable. Soft, silky contours wrap around a core of peach and lemon confit fruit. The first impression is all about texture. White flowers, pear and white pepper are some of the nuances that emerge over time, adding complexity, while clean, minerally notes grace the exquisite finish.” - 92 Antonio Galloni & 95 Wine Advocate

2019 Huet, Vouvray Demi-Sec, Le Mont, Loire Valley $40.89
Le Mont was the only vineyard that Huet was able to make a demi-sec (off-dry) from in 2019. “The 2019 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec is clear, fresh, deep and complex yet pure, fine, elegant and perfectly interwoven on the nose, where notes of crushed flint stones, limestones and concentrated citrus fruit aromas and even iodine notes are revealed. Very elegant and refined on the palate, this is a round, juicy, seductively fruity yet firmly structured and piquant Le Mont whose sweetness is captured by fine tannins and a sustainably dense, vital and salty finish. The 2019 Demi-Sec is a great Chenin and the finer Le Mont of the two, and it is doubtlessly a long-distance runner that should be cellared for at least a decade even though it's hard to resist today. Impressive! As readers know, I have been very enthusiastic about the generous 2018 series from Domaine Huet. The 2019 vintage, which was as sunny as 2018 but much drier, is completely different in style and yet is still another terrific vintage for the iconic Vouvray domain. Fans shouldn't miss the chance to buy some of the world's finest Chenin Blancs, which are still spectacularly moderate in price. Although only four wines were produced in 2019—Le Mont is the only wine that was also produced as demi-sec, while the other two were only produced as sec—these are the finest, purest, most delicate yet also intense Vouvrays I have had from Huet in recent years. If you are a collector, you shouldn't miss the 2019s, but hurry up, quantities are much less generous than in 2018.” - 97 Wine Advocate

2019 Kelley Fox, Pinot Noir, Mirabai, Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, OR $39.99
This is the first serious 2019 Pinot Noir we’ve had from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and boy do we hope its a harbinger of what the 2019 vintage has in store. Comprised of 75% Maresh and 25% Weber fruit, this is classic Kelley Fox Pinot Noir. Aromas of Hood strawberries and a hint of cinnamon from the partial whole-cluster ferment segue to the Chambolle-Musigny-like palate that is grace personified. Silky, seamless and delicious! “Oh, I love 2019. The Mirabai 2019 is a light-to-medium, youthful blue-red with brilliant transparency. Like all of my other 2019 bottlings, it is certainly lighter in colour and more nuanced than my 2018. True to the Dundee Hills, this Mirabai begins with a beautiful, fresh strawberry nose with subtle spices and tastes of the same carried by the lightest drape of silk. To me, this luminous Mirabai is both heart-warming and uplifting.” - Kelley Fox, Winemaker

2016 Azelia, Barolo, Piedmont SALE $35.99 - Reg. $39.89
This classic Barolo is silky and bright in the Azelia style – vibrant and age-worthy, but with succulent fruit and fine tannins. The result here is a perfect example of a Barolo that can be drunk younger, or aged for another 10 years. The 2016 Azelia Barolo “normale” offers good concentration with unmistakable red fruit, mineral complexity and floral charm. “Azelia's 2016 Barolo is a blend of fruit from two parcels in Castiglione Falletto and five in Serralunga, with the character of Serralunga especially felt in the wine's tannic grip and persistence. Iron, sage, mint, smoke and wild cherry give the Barolo striking aromatic nuance and complexity, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature at this address. The purity of the fruit is just striking. Stated simply, this is a tremendous wine in its peer group.” - 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous - Sorry, this one is pretty limited too.

2012 I Custodi, Etna Rosso, Aetneus, Sicily  $29.89
Geek alert: I always want to like Etna Rosso -they are after all, the darlings of sommeliers, podcasters and instagram stars all over the world.  They often, however, fall short of excellence, or are really good, but way over-priced.   Finally, with the 2012 I Custodi Aetneus, there is an Etna Rosso that I can truly get excited about on all fronts.   Comprised of organic Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, and Alicante vines of up to 150+ years old, aromas of tar, licorice, cassis, prune and dark tobacco waft up from the glass.  The palate is refined and and elegant with a quiet power.  Notes of dark fruit intermingle with a strong core of volcanic minerality and an earthy finish framed by silky tannins.   At eight years old, this wine is just entering its prime drinking window.  13.5% alcohol.

2018 Eugene Carrel, Altesse, Roussette de Savoie, France $17.99
This dry white, from the Savoie region in alpine eastern France, is comprised of the noble Altesse grape. Altesse is beloved in French bistros because it produces big, rich wines (kept lively by balancing acidity), making it both a scrumptious aperitif and food partner. Notes of ripe peach and apricot cozy up to a little minerally for added interest. This white wine is just flat out delicious. Buy it and drink it!

2018 Alain Voge, Cotes-du-Rhone, Les Peyrouses Northern Rhone Valley SALE $22.89
Alain Voge is a rockstar in the northern Rhone Valley, garnering accolade from all corners of the wine press. The Voge Les Peyrouses is not your typical Grenache-centric Cotes-du-Rhone. Rather, this is 100% Syrah from Cornas and Saint Péray. Tasty now, this wine is only beginning to show its hand. “Saturated ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented cherry and dark berry scents are complicated by hints of candied flowers and licorice. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering pliant blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. A floral pastille note appears on the clinging finish, which shows very good clarity and smooth, even tannins. Drink through 2029.” 91 Vinous
