Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadlle, then you know why. The 2020 vintage has just arrived, and it’s a fantastic vintage in Bordeaux for energetic whites. This is world-class, as always.
The Daulny 2018 Clos de Chaudenay is an absolute gem. Fine aromatically, with grapefruit and white peach fruit in the mouth and a crisp, saline finish. We never get to offer the rare Clos de Chaudenay, with most of the allocation going to the top Michelin starred restaurants of the world’s cities. The 2018 is complex aromatically, it’s truly classic Sancerre, with intense fruit, distinct minerality and vibrant acidity. Available at an outrageously good price today, the last few bottles stateside are up for grabs.
Simply stunning. An incredible effort in arguably the greatest Sancerre vintage since 1947, Dominique’s single vineyard ‘Les Deserts’ is considered the Grand Cru vineyard of Bue. It’s a dead ringer for Premier Cru Chablis; it’s that complex. How when it’s Sauvignon Blanc? Well, the vines of Les Deserts are rooted in Kimmeridgian rock, the same soil you find in the best vineyards of Chablis. It’s full-bodied with a chalky minerality and a beautiful, vibrant intensity. This will forever change the way you view Sancerre. It really is that good.
The newly released 2020 ‘Beauroy’ is selected from parcels that cut right through the center of the estate, creating as dynamic and beautifully round expression of Sauvignon as you will find anywhere. With the soils right near the town of Verdigny, Reverdy-Ducroux cashes in with their hilltop parcels planted on rocky Kimmeridgian limestone, giving a super powerful and an expressive mineral component to the wine. It’s so pure and crisp and with the new vintage upon us– bristling with energy and tension.
Vincent Ricard’s newly released old-vine Sauvignon Blanc, Pierre a Feu is one that should be on every Thanksgiving dining tables must-have list. Pierre a Feu comes from a parcel of Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1950 on a south-facing slope of sheer flint. The wine is super fine, with lifted aromatics of lemon zest and mineral-flecked peach. It’s an elegant, high-toned white wine with a saline edge that makes it incredible at the table as well as a mouth watering aperitif. At $18 on cases, it’s a steal, putting most Sancerre to shame at nearly twice the price.
Dominique and Janine’s 2020 Crochet Sancerre Blanc “Cuvee Prestige” is almost exclusively destined for a handful of the top restaurants in NYC including some owned by Danny Meyer. But after the pandemic, as a thank you from Teddy, we’re able to secure a small allocation of the “Cuvee Prestige” in the new 2020 vintage. This one is electric with tension, fresh aromas of white peach, granny smith apple, quince and that stony finish so indicative of the hillsides of Bué. Definitely won’t last here long – don’t miss it!
The 2019 Frenzy Malborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous value white wine, loaded with green apples, pears and white peaches plus a hint of spice. It’s juicy and fresh, the perfect cocktail hour white. It’s what is referred to as the perfect ‘pool wine’. It’s great paired with just about anything or just enjoyed on its own.

“Distinctive and stylish, this white offers bold passionfruit, gooseberry and lemon verbena notes on a crisp frame, with white pepper, dried pineapple and candied ginger notes on the long finish. A precise thread of acidity weaves in and out and a touch of lanolin lingers. Drink now.”
The secret to the Stolpman wine’s freshness and balance is the fact that they do not irrigate. Sure, it stresses the vines but it forces the roots to go really deep, tapping into the groundwater that is seriously affected by the limestone. The grapes are tiny, packed with flavor and brimming with the stony minerality that only the limestone can bring.
The new release of Vincent Ricard’s great white bargain is a crisp, clean and flat out delicious Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. protege to the Silex-style of Dagueneau – who over the last 15 years has produced flawless and beloved white wines that at last count were on the wine lists of over 36 Michelin-starred restaurants. Great house white and one that can surely hold its own with just about everything on the table.
