Nicolas Maillart, Brut Rosé Champagne Grand Cru, Montagne de Reims, France ~Pre-arrival, due 8/20 $50.89
While the Maillart family have been growing vines since the 1700s and bottling their own Champagnes for five generations (making them one of the earliest “Grower Champagnes,”) they are new to the U.S. market and so, have not yet been “discovered” by the sommelier instagram crowd. As a lover of Rosé Champagne, I can tell you this is my favorite Brut Rosé currently available for under $100. While this Champagne works beautifully as a head-turning apéritif, it really excels at the table and works seamlessly with a wide variety of food - easily complementing charcuterie, poultry, pork and even beef as well as more traditional Champagne food partners. Nicolas Maillart’s buddy is Fred Savart and the connection shows in this Champagne. While I love the Savart Bulle de Rose, I find the Maillart Rosé to be even more exciting. Get in on the ground floor because I image we’ll have to allocate this out in a year or two.

2018 Arterberry Maresh, Dundee Hills Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, OR $28.89
Jim Arterberry's "Dundee Hills" bottling is comprised of mostly Weber and Maresh vineyard fruit and drinks more like a Pinot selling for $45 than for one less than $30. The elegant yet lush Arterberry Maresh house style is on full display here and offers tangy blue and red fruits, Dundee Hills earthy notes and fantastic balance (13% alcohol). Already delicious, enjoy over the next five years.

2016 Vajra, Barolo, “Albe” Piedmont, Italy $33.89 / $189.00($31.50) six-pack
Need a delicious traditionally-styled Barolo to drink now and over the next ten years that sells for pittance compared to most other famous Barolo of similar quality? Here you go. A complex, earth-driven nose gives way to the big, beautiful well-balanced palate. Notes of earth, tar, anise and truffle mingle nicely with plummy fruit while suave tannins give the wine structure and power. Easily my favorite vintage yet of the Vajra's "Albe" Barolo - and a sweet deal too. “Vajra's Barolo Albe is bright, floral and wonderfully lifted in 2016. Sweet tobacco, cedar, blood orange, mint, licorice, dried red cherry and sage give the 2016 lovely savory brightness to match its mid-weight structure. Gracious and light on its feet, the Albe has so much to offer. Drink through 2031.” - 91 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2018 Vincent Paris, Cornas, Granit 30, N. Rhone, France $39.99 / $228.00($38.00) six-pack
Easily the greatest Cornas made for under $50. “Opaque ruby. Fresh blackberry and cherry scents, along with suggestions of baking spices, olive and pungent flowers. Appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors gain energy and spiciness with air while a smoky mineral element adds back-end cut. Even tannins add gentle grip to an impressively long, floral-tinged finish that leaves a spicy note behind. Drink 2023-2031” - 93 Vinous

2018 Vincent Paris, Cornas, Granit 60 Vieilles Vignes , N. Rhone, France $54.99 / $312.00(52.00) six-pack
“Saturated violet. Spice-tinged dark berries, potpourri, olive and exotic spices on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy, focused and appealingly sweet, offering densely packed black raspberry, cherry and candied violet flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Gently chewy tannins add grip to an impressively persistent, mineral- and spice-tinged finish that strongly repeats the floral note. Drink 2024-2033” - 94 Vinous & “Paris's 2018 Cornas Granit 60 boasts remarkably pure notes of cracked pepper blueberries and raspberries. Full-bodied lush and creamy it perfectly captures the ripe essence of Syrah then adds a firm grounding of crushed stone and firm tannins on the finish. It should have close to two decades of longevity.” - 95-97 Wine Advocate

2018 Vincent Paris, Cornas, La Geynale, N. Rhone, France $74.89 / $426.00($71.00) six-pack
“Opaque ruby. Highly aromatic aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, incense, exotic spices, violet and a hint of olive. Densely packed and lively on the palate, offering intense dark berry liqueur, floral pastille and salty olive flavors, a hint of smoky minerality and building spiciness. Finishes chewy, focused and extremely long, with mounting tannins lending shape and grip to vivid dark fruit and floral notes. Drink 2024-2034” - 95 Vinous - Very limited.

2013 Jean Deydier - Les Clefs d'Or, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, S. Rhone  SALE $29.99 was $34.99
Library release from the outstanding 2013 vintage. We get to taste an awful lot of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and most either blend into the pack, or cost an arm and a leg if they rise above the pack.  Jean Deydier's Les Clefs d'Or, however, is an exceptional Chateauneuf-du-Pape and a great value versus its peers.  The 2013 is blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah and the muscular Mourvedre really stands out. Smokey aromas lead to the classically earthy palate backed up by dark plum and raspberry fruit.  Enjoy now and watch it develop over the next seven years as it gains in complexity.  "Brilliant ruby-red. Mineral-tinged cherry and raspberry preserve aromas show very good clarity and gain complexity from suggestions of licorice, garrigue and allspice. Silky and seamless in texture, offering appealingly sweet red berry liqueur and floral pastille flavors and a spicy hint of white pepper. The floral nuance carries strongly into an impressively persistent finish framed by smooth, well-integrated tannins. Drink 2020-2026”  - 92 Vinous

2019 Cameron, Willamette Valley Bianco, “Giuliano” OR $26.89
Cameron's 2019 Giuliano is flat-out delicious!  The off-dry palate is rich and offers great texture with notes of lemon curd, peaches and a kiss of pineapple. Owner & winemaker John Paul aims to produce the Giuliano in the style of the Friuli region (located in Italy's northeast corner) which is noted for producing some of the country's best white wines and he definitely hits his mark with this bottling.  Comprised primarily of Friulano with dollops of Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and a touch of Moscato, this is a nuanced, flavorful and food-friendly white.  On the nose and palate you'll notice notes pear, citrus, almond, kaffir lime with a hint of flintiness and balanced acidity. Drink it as an aperitif, or with sushi, crab and other crustaceans, grilled vegetables, or spicy Thai food.

2017 Castello di Volpaia, Chianti Classico Riserva, Tuscany, Italy $34.89
The venerable Castello di Volpaia sits high up in the province of Radda in Chianti at elevations between 1300-1970ft. This high elevation worked perfectly with the warm 2017 vintage allowing Castello di Volpaia to create an incredibly alluring Riserva.  Soaring aromatics combine with a silky smooth palate that displays that illusive combination of density, elegance and balance. Notes of sage, fine leather, and cherries linger on the suave palate. Enjoy now and over the next ten years. While not rated yet, this wine is a perennial high scorer with the wine press and is usually sold out by the time Wine Spectator anoints it with a 96-97 range score.
