Thanksgiving Feast Wine Matchup Pack: Nine Picks to Enhance the Food, Reawaken the Appetite and Renew Weary Taste Buds ($299) + New Arrival: Sparkling Burgundy From Young Puligny-Montrachet Vines

A true masterpiece is composed of many elements, and all the details must be in precise balance: The forearm musculature on Michelangelo’s ‘David’ for example—the intake of breath in the nostril of Sanmartino’s ‘Veiled Christ.’ This is as true for…

Bandol: The Aristocrat of Provence. Legacy Domaine de la Bégude with an Assorted Selection in 6-Bottle Package ($242) + Taming of the Bestial Bandol, Eight Seminal Producers + NEW ARRIVAL: The Combined Second White Wines of Twin Sisters Châteaux Haut-Brion & La Mission Haut Brion

Conventional wisdom has taught us that wine grapes fare best in places where nothing else will grow; rocky, water-starved soil on precipitous hillsides make vine roots work harder, ramifying and branching off in a search of nutrients and, in consequence,…

Rhône’s Southern Charm: Seven Elevated Crus Show Distinctive Typicity and Singular Expression. (10-Bottle Pack $299) + NEW ARRIVALS – Domaine Laroche, 2020 Chablis Releases

More than angular Bordeaux or earthy Burgundy, or even the fat, smoky offerings from Northern Rhône, the wines of the Southern Rhône epitomize the notion of ‘user friendly.’ Big and luscious when young, rich and fruit-centered as they age, these…

Beaujolais’s Moulin-à-Vent 2019 Harvest Delivers Reduced Quantity But Optimal Quality The Power Of Terroir Manifested In Six Locations at Château du Moulin-à-Vent (6-Bottle Pack $293)

The image of a windmill is a perfect metaphor for humanity’s communion with nature; harvesting the air and using the rotation of a man-made propeller to generate power is synergy at its most basic, and it is also a good…

The Particularity In The Soil*: Domaine Santa Duc’s Lieux-dits, In Southern Rhône’s Two Towering Crus, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, Distilled. (6-Bottle Pack $359)

Lieux-dits are a wine lover’s Google Earth; a satellite view of an appellation focused on a tiny, representative parcel. Not all vineyards have lieux-dits, and among those that do, not all are created equal. In general, it’s a term that…

Wines That Have Recently Captured Our Attention: Seven Gestures By Seven Thoughtful Producers In The Loire And The French Mediterranean (7-Bottle Pack $269)

A Veritable Viticultural Revolution at Domaine Vacheron: Sancerre Cuvées Reflective of The Region’s Wide Soil Diversity in White, Rosé and Red. (6-Bottle Pack $318)

Burgundy Paradox: Red Gems from The Land of Chardonnay’s Gold Standard, The Triumvirate of Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet (5 Bottle Pack $358)

Few people would argue that the triumvirate of Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet produces some of the greatest white wines on the planet, but like that heavy metal band who releases a strangely poignant acoustic song, the reds of these three…
