One of the best sparkling wines for the price that you can find anywhere in the world. The 2017 Barmès-Buecher has amazing aromas of apple, pear quince and honey that flood the senses. It has a wonderful, creamy mouthful of stone fruits and citrus that linger all the way through the finish. A wonderful year for bubbly in Cremant and a real treat!
The Brunori family have been farming naturally in this area for three generations; their top vineyard, San Nicolò, is widely regarded as the top cru in their zone. The wine has a terrific combination of fruit and vibrancy with beautiful aromatics and a lovely, nutty finish.
The vineyards of Château Reverdi are classic Medoc. The 30 year-old Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot vines are farmed naturally. The wine defines the classic 2016 vintage with a deep, dark color, an enticing, forward bouquet of cedar, lead pencil and cassis, absolutely juicy fruit and a mineral backbone. Drink now-2025.
As always, my go-to under $20 Bordeaux, Chateau Roque le Mayne, knocks it out of the park in ’16. The nose is killer, flashing with intense red berries tinged with just the right amount of savory. It’s packed in the mid-palate with a stony minerality that keeps the wine fresh.
Fabrice Gasnier is consistently one of the best producers in Chinon. The La Cravantine is a sparkling rosé made from 100% Cabernet Franc and is a unique treat for the sparkling drinker. It’s bright and lively with a smooth, rich aftertaste that lingers nicely. Great with food or enjoyed by itself during cocktail hour!
Winemaker Marjorie Gallet’s Effet Papillon Rouge is a terrific blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane, harvested from the iron rich soil just outside of Rivesaltes at the base of Pyrenees. The nose is all about black fruits and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is so fresh, pure and elegant. It’s a house wine with phenomenal value
Every grape at Roc des Anges is picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has rich fruit, vibrant minerality, and a beautiful bouquet of aromas.
The 2018 Viré Clessé Fontenay is old vine Chardonnay, sourced from a terrific single parcel of vines. Barrel-fermented to perfection, balancing the fruitiness of Macon white Burgs with complex aromatics and vibrancy of Meursault and Puligny. Long on the palate, crisp in its finish, this is wine to drink with anything.

Xavier Vignon’s 2016 Côtes du Rhone 100% is 100% of what a CDR can be….perhaps even more so in 2016 (the best vintage in the southern Rhone in a generation to my taste). Xavier’s 2016 100% CDR is completely knocked-out with superb aromatics, a generous mid-palate and long finish. At today’s price tag, it’s a no brainer-case buy.
