Featured Wine: 2014 Jean Paul Droin Chablis ‘Les Clos’

$69.99 – 95VM

In many circles, Burgundy is considered one of the most challenging regions to master by even the most proficient wine connoisseurs. When I came into the business I vividly remember my mentors telling me “don’t worry, one day Burgundy will just ‘click’ but until then, keep studying.” They were right and eventually it did “click” and now, like countless others, I am completely head over heels in love with Burgundy. My passion for Burgundy does not end with the wine itself, but extends to encompass all that goes into Burgundy: th...

Chablis is a wine for oysters…

…born from their shells

A well worded quote from Chablis: Bernard Ginestet’s Guide to the Vineyards of France, particularly in reference to the Grand Cru vineyards which are planted primarily on Kimmeridgean soil, a blend of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells. These soils of the Grand Cru slopes, along with a south-south-west exposure allowing for maximum sunshine in this northernmost “cool climate” region of Burgundy, allow for one of the purest and unique expressions of Chardonnay in the world. 

According to domain’s website, William Fevre descended from...

The Bachelet brothers, Alec and Marc, are a bit new to the winemaking scene having started their endeavor in 2005. They cut their teeth working for other winemakers until, with the help of their father and uncle, they purchased 10 hectares and rented another few, all of which they farm with no insecticides.  

They are known for terroir driven Chardonnay with great acidity and minerality. They choose to pick fairly early and use 350 liter barrels to maintain the freshness of the wine. It remains in the barrel for a year before it is racked into stainless steel on the lees where it remains for an...

Domaine Ott has been making a prominent name for itself in the rosé business since production began in 1912. Now owned by Louis Roederer, the Domaine Ott level of class and sophistication has only increased, making any of their rosés a must-have for summer sipping. 

BY.OTT is a new production from Domaine Ott’s 4th generation of wine makers, cousins Jean-Francois Ott and Christian Ott. It contains all that one would expect from the vineyards in Cotes de Provence, and maybe even more. BY.OTT is a blend from a few different vineyards, the most well known being Chateau de Selle and Clos Mireille. ...

Salvatore Geraci continues to make one of the iconic wines of southern Italy; hence I opted to share this bottle with my lady for her birthday this past weekend. Surrounded by our four children, our best friends and a sparklingly beautiful afternoon, we proceeded to imbibe in great flavors from the Finger Lakes. Some Rieslings from the area were a must, but I was secretly waiting to pull the cork on the 2007 Palari Faro

Salvatore oversees every detail within his operation, from the condition of each vine to the restoration of his family manor into a modern winery and tasting room. He happens ...

Back when Napa Valley was just beginning to establish itself, a lot of California wines were sweet and multi-varietal wines. It wasn’t until wineries in the late sixties and early seventies started using Cabernet Sauvignon as the main grape that Napa Valley became known for it. One of the few pioneers to make a wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon was Caymus. 

Caymus Vineyards was established in 1971 by Charles and Lorna Wagner with the help of their son Chuck. The Wagners have been wine growers since 1915, which they sold off to bulk wine at the time. It wasn’t until 1972 that they produced 240 cas...

“Here is a truly thrilling new producer of hand-crafted Chablis, designed to showcase the individuality of different terroirs, not just at premier (and one grand) cru level, but within that very substantial area devoted to AC Chablis." -Jancis Robinson on her website, October 4, 2010

Patrick Piuze is quickly gaining rock star status in Chablis after taking the region by storm over a decade ago. He first worked for Jean-Marc Brocard and Jean-Marie Guffens before starting his own label in 2008, and has quickly become one of the top names in the region. His ability to foster relationships with the...

The Sta. Rita Hills American Viticulture Appellation is in the southern section of California’s Central Coast in Santa Barbara County. The first vineyard in the region, Sanford and Benedict, was planted in 1971 but the AVA status was granted 40 years later in 2001. According to the Sta. Rita Hills Winegrowers Alliance, the “AVA is home to over 59 vineyards, totaling 2,700 hundred acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and 18 other cool climate wine grape varieties.”

Ron Melville relocated his family’s winery from the Knight’s Valley part of Sonoma County to Sta. Rita Hills in 1996. Since then,...

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is one of our top sellers during the warmer months.  Last year, the 2014 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough was ranked #21 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list and there’s no guess why.  David Hohnen, the founder of Cloudy Bay, hit the nail on the head when he said that “Many people can remember their first taste of Cloudy Bay, they were captivated by the wine.” We recently received the 2015 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough and Iwas eager to see what this vintage would bring to the table. 

Cloudy Bay was established in 1985 by Hohnen who was one of only five win...

When Roman Bratasiuk decided to become a winemaker, he literally drove the backroads of McClaren Vale, stopping to taste grapes before he found the vineyard now known as Astralis. Once he found this magical place, where the stars seem almost close enough to touch, his fate was sealed. He worked from sun up to sun down. His hands were stained a deep red-purple from picking the grapes, and it is the way his sons, Alex and Adam, fondly remember him during those years.

The Bratasiuks have such reverence for the vineyards and terroir – Roman has always referred to the vines, some of the oldest in th...
