It’s no wonder this is a hot little ticket amongst some of NYC’s best restaurants; this is a killer wine at a great price. The 2020 Petit Chablis has an attractive nose of citrus rind, white flowers, and wet stone. In the palate, the wine is racy and mineral with just a touch of salinity. The hallmark of the great 2020s will be tension and length and Sébastien’s little wine has both in spades. The acidic/mineral cut will make this fantastic at the table and a great candidate for short term aging.
In Burgundy’s outraegous 2019 vintage, this is one of the bottles I’m recommending people load up on. It’s gorgeous. Don’t just take my word for it, this is what The Wine Advocate had to say about the wine: “The 2019 Givry Rouge is already hard to resist, bursting with aromas of sweet berries and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, with melting tannins and juicy acids, it has turned out beautifully.”
Out of all the single-vineyards in the Nickel & Nickel lineup, it’s always the Vaca Vista that seems to be the most approachable and enjoyable in its youth. The super charged Oak Knoll District Cabernet fruit comes in waves of red currant, cranberry, crushed cherries with violet undertones. It’s soft and silky throughout the palate, the fruit is juicy and full, with polished tannins, a broad mouthfeel and one of the smoothest, sleekest finishes of the vintage. This will last 20 years easy, but will probably be best in the first ten. I’m coming in just ahead of the Wine Spectator score which for this wine is usually pretty lofty.
This is another absolute gem from Sancerre that comes from the limestone and silex soils that make some of the best expressions of Sauvignon Blanc in the region. This has a wonderful chalky mineral streak that meshes perfectly with a lemon lime zest and stone fruits, with a little flint/steely expression. Philippe Raimbault is a very serious 9th generation winemaker. This one is absolutely worth checking out.
It’s hard to beat a great value white wine and this one is a at least a cut above the rest. One prominant industry insider called the 2020 edition, “the best white wine by any within $20/cs of this price.” It’s super crisp with a great mineral streak, and was carefully picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has great backbone and a lot of juicy fruit coming through behind aromas of flowers and stone fruits. At this price, it’s a no brainer.
