We want to make this one easy. 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 that you can get at 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.

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 2016 Bodega Poesia “Clos des Andes” is one of my greatest $15 dollar finds of the year. It has all the dense character that you should expect from vines under massive natural stress but by harvesting early in the season – it retains an enticing, mouth-watering acidity. That acidity perfectly balances with the rich dark fruits and a hint of spice that makes this the perfect BIG RED bargain.

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.
Nothing beats great Bordeaux for watching the rain (just ask the British and they know dreary days). This one is perfect and an absolute steal at the price. One note on the 2016 vintage in Bordeaux. In the words of Antonio Galloni’s Vinous, “Let’s cut to the chase: 2016 is a fantastic, sublime and at times entrancing vintage.”
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 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.
Corzano’s Toscana Bianco is a blend of six varieties, native and French, drawn from vines rooted in the gravelly, clay and limestone-rich soils of Chianti. After a cold fermentation in steel, blocking malolactic fermentation, the result is a mineral accented white and yellow fruit core that finishes beautifully fresh with lingering acidity. This baby has ‘Pizza Wine’ written all over it. It’s also a treat to drink outside on the deck over some grilled vegetables, fish or poultry.
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.
La Cravantine, is a sparkling rosé of 100% Cabernet Franc, bone-dry, super fresh and with bubbles so tiny and fine, it puts most “real” Champagne’s to shame. Appealing strawberry and mineral scents are encased in a firm structure with a dry and spicy quality in the palate. This wine is versatile. It’s perfect with just about any fish, fried food, or enjoy it on it’s own.
The Jaume estate in Vinsobres goes back over 100 years. These high elevation, old vines thrive over complex chalky, sandy and clay-limestone soils—one of my favorite Southern Rhone villages for Tuesday nights. Richard Jaume’s 2018 Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, both juicy and fine, loaded with aromas and flavors of red flowers, rosemary, red and black berries and spices.
