Stylized image of Louis Roederer Champagne

An NV Stunner From Champagne's Best House: Roederer Collection 244

Louis Roederer is a singular champagne house. Since its found in 1776 (!), they have tended vineyards and made wines that have graced many tables of history.

Driven by an intense dedication to quality, and inspired by the terroir expressive wines and dedicated vineyard work of the Grower Champagne movement, in the late 90s, chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon and the team at Roederer made the bold decision to transition their vineyards to organic and biodynamic viticulture.

A Rosé Favorite Returns: Bermejos' Captivating Canary Islands Rosado

A Rosé Favorite Returns: Bermejos' Captivating Canary Islands Rosado

We’re not the first people to call Lanzarote one of the most astonishingly improbable places to make wine on the planet. The Canary Islands are impossibly beautiful and dramatic, from the active volcanic peaks to pitch-black beaches bathed by piercingly blue waves. And in this wild environment, gnarled, wind-swept vines learn to not just endure but thrive, in some cases for 150 years or more.

What’s in a name? In the world of wine, sometimes too much. But in this case, it was the name “Verset” — a very special name, indeed, when it comes to Cornas — that led us to the gems that we are offering today.

Mignon's ADN de Meunier: Get to Know Champagne's Hottest Variety

Pinot Meunier is the Champagne grape equivalent of Superman. By day, it’s Clark Kent: a humble blending grape, used to add fruit or savory nuttiness. Its more famous cousins, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, tend to hog the spotlight. It won’t be found growing in Champagne’s most famous villages.

Thrilling New Cannonau from Teularju: World Class Island Wine

When we tasted Teularju a few weeks back, we sat up and took notice. On the first approach, the wines are wildly aromatic, with lifted red fruits and wild herbs, lip-smacking acidity, and juicy tannins leading to a supremely long finish. “What in the world?!” we exclaimed, and promptly went back for another sip. “This is the best Cannonau we've ever tasted, and it’s not even close”

Pellé's Single-Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc: World-Class Wine From a Sancerre Rival

Some of the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc comes from a small village in central France. Unless you’re a dedicated Francophile — or you’ve been reading our newsletter for a few years — you’ve likely not familiar with Menetou-Salon, or the high-quality wines found there.

The Greats of Burgundy Move South: Boisson's Marvelous Mâcon

Today’s Mâcon, however, feels like it snuck up on us. Who knew that Pierre Boisson, one of our very favorite producers of Meursault, was taking part in these southward adventures? Apparently, he’s only been doing it for a few vintages.

Château d'Epiré's Stunning Savennières is World-Class Chenin Blanc

Epiré, invigorated by a new generation taking over a few years ago, is making world-class Chenin Blanc. Both cuvées here are completely dry and acid-driven, but with those beautiful beeswax and lemon oil notes that typify good, traditional Savennières. But, mercifully, they cost far less than other top examples from the appellation, notably Joly’s Coulée de Serrant and Boudignon’s Clos de la Hutte.

Stylized image of Claudio Mariotto, Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Bianco "Cavallina", 2019

A Lost Grape of Piedmont, Re-Discovered: Mariotto's Timorasso

Mariotto’s Tomarisso is exquisite. It has explosive minerality and oozes crushed herbs. It has the structure to reward aging, and actually today’s example, at 5 years old, is showing pleasing signs of maturation. Like the funny-shaped tomatoes you find in the market in August, you should think of this as “heirloom” wine. It’s a unique wine, of excellent quality, that is a throwback to the times that we almost lost completely.

Great Northern Rhône Terroir is on Display in Iserand's Syrah

Jean-François Malsert is one of our most exciting new discoveries. He is making stunningly fresh, energetic Syrah from old, never sprayed vines in and around Saint-Joseph. The wines feel alive and a touch wild but without ever losing focus, elegance or clarity.
