A Rare Thing: Margaux-like Medoc from a Master

A Rare Thing: Margaux-like Medoc from a Master

Division: Effortless Wines from Oregon

Truly talented people have a knack for making their best work look effortless. Likewise, Division's wines make it seem like all Oregon should be affordable and exquisite. The wines share a taut hum of acidity, harmoniously enshrined in cool, restrained fruit, floating in a pool of minerality, the structure so seamless, so…effortless.

Domaine de L'Ecu: Classic Muscadet from a Master of Single Vineyards

Muscadet—like Burgundy, Champagne, the Mosel, Piedmont, and a few other wine regions of the world—has become known for the terroir of individual parcels.

Sophisticated Sancerre for September

Crochet has long been one of the best in the entire Loire, and a cornerstone of the Neal Rosenthal portfolio for over 40 years. They have some of the best plots in Bué, where the domaine is based, as well as Vinon and Crézancy.

Baxter: Doing It Right

Baxter: Doing It Right

Here's a story of someone who really cares about vineyards. Who does everything to allow the vineyard to express its characters through wine. This requires attentive farming, preferably organic and without irrigation. It requires hands-off wine-making, using traditional techniques that the monks in Burgundy figured out long ago.

And yet so delicious—and just complex enough—that if anyone cares to stop and think it will be well worth the moment.
