NYT Wine School: The Northern Rhône

NYT Wine School: The Northern Rhône

In his latest Wine School, Asimov encourages an in-depth study of three distinct Northern Rhône terroirs: Crozes Hermitage, St. Joseph and Cornas. He sheds light on how amazing it can be to see how even the slight differences in climates or soil type can drastically change the character of a wine made with a single grape variety.

Beaujolais Blog Bonanza! We can't get enough!

Beaujolais Blog Bonanza! We can't get enough!

Beaujolais has been a hit at Flatiron wines since we opened. 

It's the perfect wine for us -- or the perfect wineS, since really, Beaujolais means a so many different things--from the festive Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais wines we like to crush with friends, to the beautifully expressive Beaujolais Villages, right on up to the exceptional, terroir-specific Crus.

Everything you need to know about the Wachau!

Everything you need to know about the Wachau!

The Wachau Valley is the epicenter of Austria’s greatest wines. In fact, to many wine consumers, the wines of the Wachau are the wines of Austria. 

While that sentiment sells Austria short, ignoring many diverse and excellent wine regions, it’s not baseless. The Wachau’s vineyards, defined 1,000 years ago by local monks, are known for producing some of the world’s greatest white wines.

The NY Times' Summer Sparkling Wines: Crémants, Pét-Nats and More

The NY Times' Summer Sparkling Wines: Crémants, Pét-Nats and More

Paloumey 2016: Elegance in the Médoc

Paloumey 2016: Elegance in the Médoc

Listening to young winemaker Pierre Cazeneuve talk during a visit to Bordeaux in 2018, we could sense that he was interested in more than simply continuing tradition, and it was clear that Paloumey was a producer to follow.

Barolo Breakdown: Part 4, Castiglione is here!

Barolo Breakdown: Part 4, Castiglione is here!

Here, you have wines that have intense structure and aromas – of course, as this is Barolo! – but also poise.  Maybe it doesn’t quite strike you as strongly on that first sip, as do wines from some other villages. But elegance is like that. Get to the end of the first glass and you will be thoroughly persuaded to pour yourself a second.

Spotlight: Tschida Brutal

Spotlight: Tschida Brutal

Christian Tschida is one of the most uncompromising voices in natural wine. Today we’re offering two rare and delicious examples of Tschida’s handiwork: “Brutal”, a light red made from Pinot Noir, and “Birdscape”, which falls somewhere between a light red and a rosé, and is made from a Blaufrankisch-prominent combination of red and white grapes.

Vocoret Chablis: The Next Generation

Vocoret Chablis: The Next Generation

Edouard and Eleni believe you can only make great wine if you are close to the vines. So, they have kept things small: under 5 hectares (the family Domaine is nearly 10 times that). They know their vines, know their plots, and they bottle their vineyards individually so that we can enjoy each – highly individual –  terroir on its own terms.
