2019 Domaine Vico, Corse Blanc, Corsica, France $19.99
Summer quaffer of the year! Domaine Vico’s Corse blanc is 100% Vermentinu (Vermentino) from the northeastern mountains around the village of Ponte Leccia. Their location is interesting because it is the only Corsican vineyard that isn’t close to the sea.  It sits in the middle of the island nestled in the foothills of some high mountain peaks providing drastic diurnal shifts, which Vermentino loves. Vico’s 2019 Corse Blanc offers a very expressive nose with scents of wet stones, peaches and gardenias and some other stuff that I can’t articulate. The palate is medium-bodied and eminently refreshing and bright while still offering the richness and mineral expression that Vermentino is best know for. This white is oh so easy to enjoy on its own, but is quite food-friendly with any manner of seafood or vegetable dishes. I love this wine. Limited.

2019 J. L. Chave Selections, Saint Joseph Blanc, Circa, Northern Rhone $29.89
Chave is the name in the northern Rhone Valley for both red and white wine. Chave's "Circa" is a dry, luxuriously rich full-bodied Saint Joseph Blanc comprised of about 90% Roussanne and 10 % Marsanne and insanely delicious!!!  Aromas of orange, nectarine, honey and chamomile segue give way to flavors of nectarine, honeycomb and a hint of European sweet butter framed by an emphatic mineral quality. Enjoy with roast pork, quail, rich seafood dishes like lobster or halibut with beurre blanc sauce.  Very limited.

2019 Twill Cellars, Syrah, Oregon $22.89
Hold on, hold on! This is not some high-alcohol, stewed fruit blousy new world Syrah. This, my friends, is 100% whole cluster goodness from Stormy Morning (25%) and Steelhead Run (75%) vineyards.  I said it last year, and the year before, and the year before that - I think Twill Cellars is the source of the most thrilling Syrah in the U.S., at any price point. The aromatic profile of this wine is a real knockout smelling like a dead ringer for great old vine Saint Joseph Rouge. Aromas of sizzling bacon, freshly cracked pepper, olive tapenade and sun-kissed raspberries waft up from the glass. The perfectly-balanced palate shows great purity and a sneaky concentration of its red and black fruit and soil tones. Fine-grained tannins and good acidity frame this delicious Syrah and promise a leisurely development in the cellar as it gains in complexity. Really cool! Drink now and often through 2032 with lamb, grilled steak, burgers, sausages etc…12.5% alc.

2018 Caprili, Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany $19.89
Last month, the 2016 Caprili Brunello di Montalcino was a run-away success. If you missed it, or just need a delicious Tuscan red to drink while you are waiting for your Brunello to mature, here you go. Caprili’s Rosso di Montalcino (100% Sangiovese grosso) is from younger vines that don’t quite make the cut for their Brunello because they don’t have the same tannic structure to allow them to age for decades and is made to be enjoyed in its youth. That doesn’t sound so bad! Caprili’s 2018 Rosso is very aromatic with classic aromas of fine pipe tobacco, earth, oregano and warm cherries. The medium-bodied palate rings in at a cool 13.5% alcohol (low for Montalcino these days) and is very savory in nature. Dusty cherry fruit melds seamlessly with velvety tannins and balancing food-friendly acidity. Enjoy this excellent value as you would a fine Chianti Classico over the next five to seven years with all manner of pasta dressed with tomato or meat sauces, pizza, mushroom dishes or grilled sausages or burgers. “Caprili's 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is fresh, vinous and very pretty. Sweet red flowers, spice and menthol add nuance to a core of bright Sangiovese fruit in a lithe, gracious Rosso to drink now and over the next handful of years.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2019 Iacopo Paolucci, Il Ponziano, Trebbiano Spoletino, Umbria $19.99
Geek alert: This is fantastic white wine - one of the coolest Italian whites I’ve tried this year and I’ve tried a few. From the central Italian region of Umbria, Iacopo Paolucci is focused on cultivating organically grown indigenous grape varieties like Trebbiano Spoletino, a variety related to, but much more noble than other varieties under the Trebbiano umbrella. With four days of skin contact (this is not an orange wine!), the Il Ponziano is a golden straw color and offers enticing aromas of wildflowers, peach skin, and dried apricots. The succulent medium-bodied palate is complex with flavors of ripe pears, orange zest, apricots, and a hint of sage with a vein of minerality running through the wine. Wow - simply delicious!

2019 Produttori del Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Piedmont $23.89
For many of you, the Produttori del Barbaresco needs no introduction. Their Lange Nebbiolo is made from fruit that is entirely from Barbaresco vineyards that is declassified into this early-drinking gem. Produttori’s 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo is the best vintage of this bottling in years. While still eminently drinkable now, it has much better balance than the past few vintages and also offers better structure. Juicy ripe raspberry and boysenberry fruit is cradled by suave tannins and given lift by good acidity in this medium-full-bodied red. Enjoy this crowd-pleasing Nebbiolo now and over the next three to five years with mushroom risotto, pizza, tagliatelle with meat sauce etc.

2017 Dom. Rapet, Pernand-Vergelesse 1er Cru Rouge, Ile des Vergelesses, Burgundy $59.89
For those of you unfamiliar with the great Ile des Vergelesses vineyard, it (along with Chambolle-Musigny's Les Amourouse and Gevrey-Chambertin's Clos Saint Jacques) is probably the Premier Cru that would be most likely to be promoted to Grand Cru.  The strength of Ile des Vergelesses (Les Vergelesses is a different vineyard) is that it combines finesse and elegance and pristine fruit with a strong sense of terroir.  Rapet’s 2017 is a prime example with its earth-driven nose and accents of cherry and blueberry fruit.  The palate is a perfect demonstration of the attributes of Ile des Vergelesses mentioned above and offers a strong core of minerality and enough structure to drink well for fifteen years. Limited.

2020 Dom. des Fines Caillottes (Jean Pabiot), Pouilly-Fumé, Loire $21.89
From the rich, intense 2019 vintage, Domaine de Fines Caillottes's Pouilly Fumé offers everything one wants from Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.  With a brilliant light yellow hue, the Fines Caillottes offers an expressive nose of grapefruit, green apple, pear and floral notes.  The palate is full of life, suave, rich and fresh with an intense mineral core and a kiss of lime on the finish.  This is a terroir-driven Pouilly-Fumé with gorgeous fruit to enjoy now and over the next three years.

2020 Ch. Pibarnon, Bandol Rosé, Provence $34.89
This is not only my favorite Bandol Rosé, it's my favorite Rosé period that I've had over the last year - and I've had a lot!  Chateau Pibarnon, one of the three great Bandol estates, differentiates itself by sitting at the highest elevation in the appellation (more than 900 feet above sea level) and occupies its own micro-climate. This is not just delicious and refreshing, it's serious, complex food-friendly wine that will improve over the next few years. “Shimmering salmon skin. Powerful cherry, raspberry, pit fruit and lavender aromas, along with blood orange and succulent herb flourishes. Stains the palate with mineral-accented red berry, bitter cherry, white peach, orange pith and floral pastille flavors that show sharp delineation and spicy lift. In a powerful style, but it comes off lithe and precise. Shows powerful thrust on an impressively long, mineral-tinged finish that echoes the peach and blood orange notes. Drink through 2028” 93 - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
