This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, 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.
If you’ve never heard of Bisci, let’s start here. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate called Giuseppe Bisci’s Verdicchio “one of the finest I’ve ever tasted,” and noted that “Verdicchio is one of the joys of Italian oenology that rarely gets the respect it deserves, and few producers do it better than Bisci.” A staple at $85/bottle for both French Laundry and Eleven Madison Park. Far less a bottle today.

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.
The 2019 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is a total knock-out. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white wine 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.
What separates this Valpolicella from its peers is the grapes used were grown for this wine specifically. This isn’t Amarone seconds, it’s a precisely crafted and seductive rendition of the Corvina grape that will appeal to Red Burgundy lovers. Highly versatile and elegant, Ca La Bionda’s Valpolicella mesmerizes with red and blackberries, anise and Asian spices with serious depth.

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion 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. –Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
While modernization over the last two decades (both in the vineyard and cellar) has contributed to the making of “good” wine in most years, it’s in the miracle vintages that modestly priced bottles resemble collectables. At Chateau Sipian, Frederic Mehaye turned out a Medoc for the ages, a lavish blend of broad-shouldered Cabernet Sauvignon, spiked with a generous dose of Petit Verdot muscle. It’s rich and intensely concentrated on the attack, as much New World as Old, velour-like in texture, finishing with great freshness, and with ripe tannin backbone that argues for one or two decades of cellar slumber.
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.

Crafting wine off an ancient vineyard in Sauternes, Bernard relies on an intimate relationship with the Bordeaux terroir he knows so well and knowing the precise time to pick each vintage. In the exceptional 2018 vintage, Oliver Bernard’s ‘Lune d’Argent’ is a knockout.
The 2019 Clos Julien is a classic example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. It starts out with a great nose of Granny Smith apple, citrus rind and acacia. In the mouth, the fruit is pure, with plenty of extract and the finish is clean and crisp. This Pacific-influenced wine is the perfect house white, delicious by itself as an aperitif but a fantastic foil to the cuisine of summer, scallops, grilled poultry, and summer corn.
This picturesque estate lies in the commune of San Casciano, just outside of Florence. The pristine vineyards contain Sangiovese, ranging in age from 5 to 35 years, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, averaging 20 years in age. The 2018 Chianti is the result of a wonderful vintage with conditions that allowed for silky smooth Chiantis. This one is packed with explosive red fruit, with just enough backbone to make it the perfect companion for just about any food dish.
