From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, comes a brand new release that is going to dazzle a lot of folks. This is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.
Fresh off a huge feature in The Wall Street Journal in which they were crowned as the top Prosecco Rose in a lineup of 14, I suspect what was once our little secret will explode. James Suckling also finally got around to tasting it and gave it 91 points. I’d rate it even higher. The 2020 Bisol Jeio Brut Prosecco Rosé is remarkable, and simply put, mouth-wateringly delicious. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles.
The newly released 2020 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is everything you’re looking for in a vibrant, food-friendly white wine. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever. You’re going to want to add a few bottles to your collection ASAP.

A sexy package with a great label leads you off before you’re swooned by a mix of citrus, white peach, and turkish apricots. On the palate, you’re hit with a refreshing sweet and sour combination with incredibly tiny, salty bubbles. This one is a beauty – the definition of a crowd pleaser. Vinous got a hold of it and gave it their highest rating for the category of the vintage, a 91-point score for a wine they deemed, “incredibly pretty and highly likable”. This is going to be the go-to for Melissa this year, I can already tell.

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.
This is classic Cotes de Provence Rosé from one of the oldest, most respected producers in the region. With over 800 years of winemaking, Peyrassol is best known for their iconic clay and limestone soils that produce mouthwatering Rhone blends. The brand new ‘Cuvee des Commandeurs’ Rose is electric– super crisp and refreshing with a mix of cherries, mango, nectarines and lemon zest flavors. The best part here is the piercing, dry backbone that ties it all together and gives it a lasting finish.
Every vintage, if you can get your hands on this one, it’s one of the best Roses hands down in Provence. Unfortunately, we couldn’t in 2020 due to tariffs, and only managed 10 cases all of last year. But finally, I got my hands on 168 bottles and it’s fantastic. Château Revelette is an incredible property set at a crazy elevation north of Mount Saint Victoire in the heart of Provence. Their new release is super bright and focused, delivering high-toned flavors of wild strawberry, ripe peach and melon with plenty of extraction and length. It’s a traditional Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.
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.

This is an absolutely killer Sparkling Lambrusco Rose that doesn’t taste like what you might expect. It’s got a gorgeous pink hue with a fruity and floral nose, but it doesn’t give off the herbal notes that Lambrusco sometimes does. Instead, it’s a lovely draw expression with fresh, juicy red fruits with a hint of cintrus and minerality. The bubbles are tiny and pure and add a refreshing layer to this fun little number. It comes in a great bottle and whats inside is fantastic. Mom or dad or anybody else will love it.
Nicholas #2 Wine of the Year, 2021
The 2020 Clos Julien Chard is a quintessential example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. This one comes bristling with energy right out of the gates. It’s a flawlessly crafted single-vineyard Chardonnay– as bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with great minerality and a lingering, bright finish. It’s a fantastic wine year round and goes well with so many things in the kitchen.
This one is electric, great minerality, great lemon lime and saltiness. It even has a little ageability. I’d drink this over the next few years. This is one of the absolute best expressions from the region (a Cru vineyard designate in 2011) and so perfect with anything out of the sea but in particular the raw bar. Crisp and clean stone fruit with some pear, and a lot of personality. This is a great new discovery wine to check out.
