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.

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.

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.

FEATURED: Traditional Barbaresco from Versio

FEATURED: Traditional Barbaresco from Versio

It’s still pretty rare, though, to find a producer who is completely band new. How many people out there could possibly be qualified to start a new domaine in Barolo or Barbaresco? Not many.

But Francesco Versio is eminently qualified.

FEATURED: Bottled Elegance from Pépière

The Muscadets of Domaine de la Pépière are some of the greatest dry whites in the Loire. They are true vins-de-gardes of terroir expression—and they are great values, too. Pépière wines are subtle, complex and poised. In a word: gorgeous. And they age incredibly well, too. This is a perfect candidate for the Reasonable Cellar.

Featured: Sites Set on Brovia's Dolcetto

Featured: Sites Set on Brovia's Dolcetto

Remarkably, Brovia also has planted a small parcel of Dolcetto in Brea. Brea is a magnificent site, and it is owned entirely by Brovia (a monopole). Now, it’s not so rare to have Dolcetto planted within DOC Barolo, but it’s almost always in “off” sites. Brovia’s is one of the rare examples of Dolcetto planted where Nebbiolo could be planted -- and make great Barolo.
