2013 Comtesse de Cherisey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny, Burgundy
On Sale $79.99
The 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny comes from the domaine’s 1.7-hectares vineyard close to La Garenne. It has an outgoing and quite waxy bouquet with hints of lemon curd and orange cordial. The palate is crisp and focused with vibrant citric fruit, again, well-judged natural acidity and a pleasant twist of bitter lemon on the finish.
90-92 Points, The Wine Advocate
2014 Pierre & Catherine Breton Vouvray “La Dilettante”
On Sale $18.99
Dry white wine, fresh and ripe from a ground of clay whith flints. The happy medium of the minerality of the terroir, the acidity of the wine and the grape ripeness.
2014 Charles Joguet “Cuvee Terroir,” Chinon
On Sale $17.99
The complexity in this bottle of wine will as- tound you, as will its versatility at table. It is truly a sweeping brushstroke representing the entire appellation of Chinon.
2013 Domaine Faury St. Joseph
On Sale $27.99
Bright purple. Lively black and blue fruits on the spicy nose and in the mouth. Nervy and focused, showing no excess weight and a subtle sweetness. Shows good clarity and siky tannins on the gently gripping finish. Very fresh, in the style of the vintage.

2006 Quintarelli Rosso Ca’Del Merlo
On Sale $82.99
A single vineyard bottling. Grapes are pressed immediately after harvest. After 3-4 days of maceration, primary fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. Wine is racked and then sits until February. Wine is racked onto the lees of the Amarone which starts a second alcoholic fermentation (this process is called ripasso.) After this fermentation, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak barrels for seven years.
