A Charming Chenin Blanc (with Bubbles) from François Pinon

A Charming Chenin Blanc (with Bubbles) from François Pinon

The Chenin Blancs of Vouvray are a world unto themselves. They  can be bone dry and electrifying, or lush, tropical and sensually sweet. Finding a sparkling wine this complex and utterly refreshing, with this kind of aging, is rare.

Château Falfas Offers A Tantalizing Taste of Bordeaux's Past

Château Falfas Offers A Tantalizing Taste of Bordeaux's Past

We are delighted in the supple, immediate joys of the straight ‘Château Falfas’ cuvée, which comes from the virtually perfect 2016 vintage. Its linear, velvety red-fruit profile reminds us of wines from another like-minded right-bank estate, Château Le Puy. It is a remarkable value.

Chorey-lès-Beaune: A Banging Burgundy Deal for Beginners and Pinot-philes Alike

Chorey-lès-Beaune: A Banging Burgundy Deal for Beginners and Pinot-philes Alike

If you're new to Red Burgundy it's hard to think of a better village to start with than Chorey-lès-Beaune. The wines are lovely examples of what makes Burgundy Burgundy: airy Pinot Noir with lovely fruit flavors that are nevertheless defined more by their savory side than their fruit.

Crowley's Captivating Chardonnay & Pinot Noir

Crowley's Captivating Chardonnay & Pinot Noir

The first time I tasted the Crowley wines, I was mesmerized by their elegance and deliciousness. I assumed it could only be a fluke, a superb vintage, or maybe a fruit day on the biodynamic calendar. 

I'm happy to say that three vintages later, I've yet to be disappointed.
