Paul Dethune, Champagne Grand Cru, Brut Cuvée Prestige  SALE $49.99 ~ Reg.$59.89
Want to drink rich, luxurious Champagne but don't want to throw down $175 a bottle on Krug?  In a blind tasting, I would wager that more Champagne lovers than not would prefer Dethune's Cuvée Prestige.  Like Krug, the Dethune Cuvée Prestige is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (okay, there's a little Meunier in Krug) and is matured in barrel to bring our an extra sense of richness.  Also like Krug, Dethune's Prestige Cuvée is a blend of over 25 different vintages of Champagne in their reserves - this is what adds an extra dimension to the wine and really sets these two great Champagne houses apart from just about everyone else.  A deep golden yellow, the bouquet offers scents of hawthorne and toasted hazelnuts and segues to the rich, full-bodied palate with plenty of chalky minerality, dried apricot and citrus fruit and buttery brioche. Unlike Krug, there is very little of this wine made - only 208 cases a year!

2016 Cameron, Dundee Hills Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, OR $18.99
For those of you who follow my monthly “picks”, you may have noticed that I have an affinity for white wine.  I especially love delicious Chardonnays from Oregon’s Willamette Valley.  As this is my final selection during my Sec Wines tenure, I aim to leave on a high note recommending the 2016 Cameron Dundee Hills Chardonnay.  This is the wine you drink while your single vineyard Clos Electrique and Abbey Ridge Chards are aging and evolving in the cellar.  Made from the 108 clone, this “drink me now” Chardonnay hails from the Abbey Ridge and Clos Electrique vineyards.  The vines are younger than those used in the single vineyard bottlings and see a little new wood as it has spent 11 months in barrel prior to bottling.  What stays consistent is Cameron’s signature aromatics and flavor.  As winemaker John Paul states, “A nose of lemon curd, apricot, white peach, baking spice, almonds and browned butter and a creamy palate with flavors of lemon peel, graham cracker, and pear tart with crème Anglaise.”  My advice is to stock up and enjoy this glorious Oregon Chardonnay on it’s own, with a meal, at a party, on the deck, near the fireplace, while watching basketball, etc. - Allison’s pick

2015 Arterberry Maresh, Dundee Hills Chardonnay, Maresh Vineyard, Willamette Valley, OR $69.89
Grand Cru vineyard + some of the oldest vines in the state (34 years old) + superior clones(108!) + outstanding winemaker + warm, but gentle growing season = insanely great Oregon Chardonnay. The 2015 Maresh isn't just one of the greatest Chardonnays of the Oregon vintage, it competes against the very best of Burgundy in 2015 too. In fact, this wine has vastly superior balance to most 2015 White Burgundies which suffer from over-ripeness and are often acid-deficient. The 2015 Maresh vineyard Chardonnay is dead-ringer for a great Lafon Meursault with its intensity, richness, great texture, superb balance (13% alc.) and minerally goodness. Very Burgundian. Drink over the next 10 years.

2015 Crous St. Martin, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhone Valley, France $24.89
No, the listed price is not a misprint. This is real honest-to-goodness Chateauneuf-du-Pape for under $25. The Crous St. Martin is one delicious C-D-P and one of the best-balanced Southern Rhone wines of the vintage. “Vivid ruby-red. Bright, focused and energetic on the intensely perfumed nose, displaying an array of ripe red fruit, floral and spice qualities and a smokey miners overtone. Stinks the palate with sappy raspberry liqueur, spice cake and lavender pastille flavors that slowly deepen and spread out as the wine opens up. Seamless and alluring sweet on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with superb, floral-driven tenacity.” - 92-94 Vinous. But wait, there’s more: “Another impressive 2015 which offers lots of black cherry, violets, blueberries and creamy licorice in a forward, rich and decadent style. While the overall impression is one of upfront fruit and texture, it has plenty of ripe tannin that comes through on the palate” - 91-93 Wine Advocate Stock up!

2014 Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco “Normale”  $32.89 *net
Come and get it!!! Antonio Galloni's review (below) nailed it.  This is one of best versions of this wine I can remember. "The 2014 Barbarescos confirm all the potential they showed as recently bottled wines a year ago. Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully delineated, the 2014s capture the essence of what makes Nebbiolo so compelling. In short, the 2014 Barbarescos speak to the essence of site as expressed in one of the most unusual growing seasons in recent memory...It is a vintage that will especially please readers with classically leaning palates.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 10/31/17 "The 2014 Barbaresco is fabulous. Lifted in the glass, with striking perfume and captivating translucency, the Produttori's Barbaresco captures all the elements that make this vintage so compelling. Today, the 2014 is very, very young. What stands out most is its textural finesse and balance. It will be a number of years before the aromas and flavors are fully expressive. The only thing that might come as a surprise is the touch of new cask in this wine. Otherwise, the 2014 is one of the finest editions of the straight Barbaresco I can remember tasting, not to mention a superb example of how magnificent this vintage is in Barbaresco. Don't miss it.” - 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous & 94 Wine Advocate
