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 2019 has just arrived, and it’s as fresh and as delicious as you could want. Enjoy.
The newly released Menetou-Salon is loaded with aromas and flavors of white flowers, lime-blossom and citrus fruit. The mid-palate is generous, just great fruit and it finishes long and fine. Juicy enough to be delicious on its own poolside and but with that nervy, high-toned backbone, it’s one of the best wines for any table that we have in the store. At just $22, you can’t miss. At $19.80 on cases, it’s like rolling back the clock ten or more years!
This wine is textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué, the highest in elevation in Sancerre with the most calcareous soil. It is a chiseled, tightly wound and incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, which I’d argue is one of the best in the world. In the 2019 vintage, the Carrou has a brilliant pale green color and soaring aromatics of green apples, pear and jasmine.
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.
Vincent Ricard’s new old-vine Sauvignon Blanc, Pierre a Feu 2019, is one that should make the starting roster for anyone’s springtime outdoor dining go-to 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.
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.
Pied à Terre’s newly released Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is a delicious, fresh, Old-World styled wine, much closer to Sancerre than what is typically found in California. Pair with anything from sea and anything with great richness or fat or on its own as an absolutely eclectic aperitif! The only downside of Pied à Terre is that this is still a work in progress when it comes to production. Just a few dozen cases made it to the East Coast this year, do not miss one of the most exciting American wines we will offer all year.
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.
Drawn from two just special blocks of the family’s estate – that have been farmed by the Paulis for over 100 years – Lexi’s Estate begun as a fun family project to work on with their daughter Lexi. The Estate SB is a delight on the nose with bright citrus notes, key lime pie, and little honey dew. The mouth is bright and expressive, crisp and dry. Perfect with grilled shrimp, any seafood really, or even just in a chilled glass on its own.
