2020 Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot Cuvee Clement Emma

Laherte Frères Ultradition Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

Simply put, Ultradition is an irresistible Champagne that delivers serious value. It's an accessible Champagne, but also one of incredible balance and interest.

Wine of the Year #1: Joe's Pick
2021 Schäfer-Fröhlich Felseneck Grosses Gewächs

"Terrific concentration and cut"
2019 Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes
