  • Domaine Gadais Monnieres Saint Fiacre 2016
    $22.00
    White wine. Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Melon de Bourgogne. "This bottling hails from the lieu à dit of Gras Mouton, and is emblazoned with the “1947” moniker on the label because that was the year that Louis Gadais bought this abandoned parcel in Gras Mouton and started clearing it and planting vines. It sits at the highest elevation in the vineyard and to use the Cru designation of Monnières-Saint-Fiacres for the wine, a minimum of twenty-four months aging on its fine lees is required. With the vines now more than seventy years of age, the 2016 vintage of this bottling offers up a superb bouquet of lime, breadfruit, ocean breeze, a complex base of salty minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, crisp and full-bodied, with a good core of fruit, fine focus and grip, lovely complexity and a long, well-balanced and classy finish. This is drinking very nicely today, but clearly will age long and gracefully as well." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Marc Plouzeau Chateau de la Bonneliere Rive Gauche 2019
    $16.00
    Red wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. 100% Cabernet Franc. Organic. "Marc Plouzeau’s Rive Gauche bottling of Chinon is one of his more forward cuvées, as the vineyard is planted on a base of gravel and pebbles along the river. The vines are thirty years of age and, like all of Monsieur Plouzeau’s wines, fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2019 comes in nicely ripe at 13.5 percent octane and offers up a deep and classic bouquet of black cherries, dark berries, cigar smoke, gravel, a bit of menthol, tree bark and a topnote of juniper berries. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and has excellent depth at the core, with fine soil signature, moderate tannins and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is approachable now, but with the exceptional quality of the 2019 central Loire red wine vintage, this has the depth and stuffing to also age gracefully for the next couple of decades. It’s fine quality augurs very well for some of the other cuvées of Chinon here yet to be released! 2020-2040." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Marc Plouzeau Chateau de La Bonneliere Touraine Cepage Sauvignon "les Devants" 2019
    $16.00
    White wine. Touraine, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "Marc Plouzeau’s 2019 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is made from a parcel of thirty-plus year-old vines. The wine is very high quality, with the nose jumping from the glass in a vibrant blend of gooseberry, lime, cut grass, chalky soil tones and a topnote of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, racy and rock solid at the core, with great cut and grip, laser- like focus and superb mineral drive on the very long, complex and snappy finish. This is the finest and most serious example of Touraine Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted, which is no doubt a testament to the superb quality of both the 2019 vintage and the serious skills in the cellar of Monsieur Plouzeau! Think of this as the quality equivalent of a top flight bottling of Chavignol Sancerre in a great vintage, which will be even better with a year or two of bottle age! 2020- 2030+." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Domaine L'Epicourchois Cheverny Blanc 2018
    $20.00
    White wine. Cheverny, Loire Valley, France. Biodynamic. 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 50% Menu Pineau. "Luc Percher’s Cheverny Blanc is a classic fifty-fifty blend of chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc. The 2018 version is a beautiful wine, offering up a refined and complex bouquet of quince, a touch of tangerine, lime peel, chalky soil tones and a potpourri of citrus blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent soil signature, bright acids and a very long, well-balanced and zesty finish that closes with a note of beeswax. A lovely wine that is still youthful and will be even better with a few years in the cellar. 2020-2030." — 90+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
