Today, we will head south from Chambolle, passing through Vosne Romanee to arrive at the village of Nuits-St.-Georges. In this village, we first encounter the very Vosne-like vineyards that directly abut some of Vosne’s finest sites. Those vineyards are premier crus with names like Boudots and Damodes.

Garnier: Chablis Perfection from Off the Beaten Track

Garnier: Chablis Perfection from Off the Beaten Track

Today’s wine is a perfect village-level Chablis. You’ll notice the crisp, steely sensation that we miss from older vintages of Chablis right away. With time – and this wine can easily hang for a few days in your fridge – the other things that we love about Chablis start to come to the surface, like oyster shell and iodine.

Castello di Neive: Barbaresco Freshness

Isn’t Barbaresco for long-term cellaring? Well, tell that to the Piedmontese themselves, who happily gulp down young Barbaresco all the time for its delicious fruit, no decanting required. Or at least some Barbaresco. Yes, you would normally collect and cellar single Cru Barbaresco and other top bottlings, but today’s Barbaresco is designed – and priced – for simple drinking. It’s just that it’s really good simple drinking.

Von Winning: Humble Wines from the Head-Turning Master of the Pfalz

Von Winning: Humble Wines from the Head-Turning Master of the Pfalz

Certain producers manage to completely alter your conception of a wine region, while still remaining true to their local traditions and terroirs. An example that comes to mind is Gravner. Indeed, these producers are almost always great, and often end up becoming the reference-point producer of the region.

There have been many attempts in the last 100 years to draw European borders neatly along linguistic lines – some violent, and some peaceful .These efforts have rarely been 100% successful. And so it is that wine-maker ​​Zsolt Sütó finds himself on the Slovak side of the border with Hungary, even though he, like a majority of his co-villagers, are Hungarian speakers.

Vajra: The Radiant Simplicity of Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo charms us with radiant simplicity. The Vajra family, master winemakers in the commune of Barolo, capture the delicate transparency of the grape perfectly in a youthfully fresh expression called Claré J.C. Vibrant, chillable and thirst-quenching, this is a warmer-weather red you’ll want to stock up on for keeping cool at backyard barbecues, picnics in the park and long days on the beach.

La Distesa: Vacation wine from Le Marche

Today we offer the wines of one of our favorite producers, La Distesa. We love them because their approach in their small vineyards is to treat them like a natural garden, and these are vines that grow among fava beans and wild mint. We also love how they make their wines: according to deep traditions.

Gerard Boulay: Move Over Montrachet!

Gerard Boulay: Move Over Montrachet!

Chavignol is special because it is here that you find the greatest concentration in its soils of limestone from the kimmeridgian geologic age. So what? Well, that happens to be the same soil type that you find in Chablis, and like there, it gives wines a very distinctive mineral quality that sets it apart from other wines made with exactly the same grape (compare, for example, Chablis with Meursault!).
