In short, it is one of Champagne's greatest wines. Cristal Rosé delivers a jaw-dropping finesse, length, and intricate laciness.

Clos des Ducs produces some of the most intense, mineral-driven, and deeply complex examples of red Burgundy.

The 2019 Diecibrente dramatizes the heights that these wines can reach.

Elusive, Complicated Greatness:
2021 Château Simone Palette Blanc

Simone Blanc is a special wine. It's one of the rare wines that both creates its own category and shows an aristocratic breeding. The 2021 will go down as one of the best examples that we've seen of this wine.

Sub-$30 Red Burgundy:
2022 Trousselle Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune En Cre

It's rare to find this quality in red Burgundy at this price point, and even rarer for it to happen vintage after vintage.

"This is a quality Chambolle villages and worth a look."
2019 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny

The way that the 2019 vintage dovetails with Bertheau's style is really amazing. The Chambolle is sleek and refined, but it possesses more punch and velvety texture than you typically encounter in the wine. 

"This is a very elegant and alluring style"

There's an incredible persistence and precision to the wine and the lithe frame is packed with lots of nuanced complexity.

"Seriously good" -2021 Dauvissat Chablis

Dauvissat's 2021s are forces of nature. They are concentrated, tension-filled, and seriously mineral-laden. It's the sort of collection that we won't see again for many, many years.

Rare Bartolo Mascarello Chinato

I've been searching for it ever since. It's an exceedingly rare thing to find. The estate releases tiny quantities every few years.

Rare, Revelatory Loire: 2021 Bernaudeau Vin de France Les Onglés

The first time that I tasted Bernaudeau's Les Onglés, it was a revelation. The wines have a clarity, a deep mineral imprint, and liveliness that are fascinating and straight-up delicious.

"This is another stellar set of wines from Mariacristina and Isabella Oddero"
2019 Oddero Barolo Brunate

Everything is in place for the 2019 Brunate to age beautifully. It's rare that you find such precision and harmony in a wine. This should not be missed. 

The Master of Chinon:
2020 Baudry Chinon La Croix Boissée

La Croix Boissée is one of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the entire Loire.

"This has the potential to be one of the wines of the vintage."
-2020 Dauvissat Chablis Les Preuses

Dauvissat's 2020s are really compelling. They offer up plenty of presence, but what really wins us over is their piercing minerality.

In Top Form - Don't Miss Red Burgundy Value:

Their Nuits has long been one of my bulletproof village Burgundies. The 2019 ups the ante in a serious way.

-2008 Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas François

Billecart-Salmon's Champagnes possess a sleek, timeless elegance that's utterly beautiful.

Back Up The Truck - $16 Pinot Noir Edition:
2019 Stadlmann Pinot Noir

The 2019 Stadlmann Pinot Noir delivers spice-inflected punchy red fruits. There's plenty of underlying lift and minerality. One of the qualities that stands out is the wine's impression of honesty and detail.

"I very much like the focused power... " -2020 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

At their best, the 2020s combine power and richness with snap, tension, and Chablisien minerality. Raveneau has clearly produced some of the top wines of the vintage.
