Dear Rosé: Please Don't Go
2009 Copain Rosé "Tous Ensemble"
The Last Hurrah: As Low as $13.75 a Bottle

Because summer is nearly over, and all we really want to do is drink more rosé...

The sticky, stifling heat can take its leave. But the cool, crisp, thirst-quenching, lip-smacking gulpability of rosé - that we'd like to enjoy a bit longer.

Labor Day is here, and before waking up to the realities of back to school/back to work without summer Fridays/back to sweaters and not-white pants, if you’re anything like us, all you want this weekend is a boat or a big backyard and lots of cold, delicious beverages.

Red, Still Wine... from Champagne?
2002 Paul Bara Bouzy Rouge
Pinot Noir with Shimmering Clarity,
Weightless Complexity... No Other Pricing in the Nation

This has to be the most spirited esoteric offering in some time...

Yes, it's still, red wine from Champagne from the reference-point producer for this little-known and underappreciated category. More than curiosity, this offers a glimpse at Pinot in a state of singular and utter purity.

If you're at all interested in experiencing Pinot Noir at its most nervy, ethereal, and resolutely mineral form, Bara's is certainly the one to try.

Simply put, Paul Bara rules the category of red Coteaux Champenois, his name looming large in experts' writings on this unique non-sparkler from Champagne.

Clos to My Heart
2008 Vincent Dauvissat Les Clos
One of the Only Parcels in the Nation

"... an utterly brilliant bottle in the making... deep, brilliantly complex and stunningly transparent... full-bodied, racy and very elegant on the attack... profound focus and grip and a very, very long, transparent and tensile finish..." - John Gilman

He's right: Vincent Dauvissat’s 2008 Les Clos is certainly an utterly brilliant bottle in the making, a grand-scaled tribute to Chablis in top form.

Today we offer one of the only tranches in the nation, at $129.95 a bottle.

Grand Cru Dry Ruwer Riesling
2009 Karthauserhof Grosses Gewächs
First Ever GG from the Monastery in the Mountain
Special "Futures" Pricing Ends Friday!

Karthauserhof's legendary, cultish Auslese Trocken "S" has a new name in 2009.

Though I forgot to ask Marcel Tyrell why the estate decided to change their classification system this year, I can make some pretty good guesses.

First of all, 2009 is a profound vintage for dry wines, especially in the Saar and Ruwer where the deep, pure ripeness of 2009 is countered more forcefully by the vigorous acidity the regions are famous for. Second, the "Grosses Gewächs" name is really beginning to catch on. It translates, literally, to "Great Growth" and in the VDP-inspired system, this moniker can only be given to the greatest dry wine from the region's top sites.

Family Matters
2009 Duhart-Milon
A House at the Tipping Point?
Special Bordeaux Futures Pricing

"The 2009 appears to be the finest Duhart-Milon yet made. The Rothschild family has invested heavily in this estate over the last 20 years in order to upgrade the quality, and their investments have certainly paid off handsomely."
- Robert Parker

People are catching on, quickly: Duhart-Milon offers a fantastic quality to value ratio, the chateau's 2009 an exemplary Medoc for the vintage... and at a miniscule fraction of the price of its supermodel siblings (read: Lafite and that maison's Carruades).

Today we continue our 2009 Bordeaux futures campaign with the vintage's Duhart-Milon at $77.95 a bottle.

Clos Rougeard... Second Generation
2005 Collier Saumur Blanc
Chiseled Chenin of Riesling-esque Purity
Special One-Time Pricing Over 40% Off!

Like father, like son?

Antoine Foucault, son of Clos Rougeard's Charly Foucault, has gone out on his own and is making wines that are so finely wrought with Rougeard-like elegance that one has to wonder if DNA profiling will someday uncover a winemaking gene.

The Foucaults are Loire royalty - their Clos Rougeard is one of the region's greatest. This is an estate that transcends (in a serious way) the quiet, rural solitude of the fertile Loire. Or, put another way: Clos Rougeard is about as blue-chip and high-profile as it gets, at least in the Loire.

But our story today revolves around the son of Clos Rougeard. Antoine Foucault has started his own estate, Domaine Collier, and is producing Chenin Blancs that are shockingly clear and cut - Riesling lovers, please continue reading!
