VIDEO: Blind Tasting CVNE's Traditional Stunner

VIDEO: Blind Tasting CVNE's Traditional Stunner

A few weeks ago we got together and challenged ourselves to blind taste 3 wines in just 3 minutes. As always it was humbling and fun! This is just a small taste of us blind tasting CVNE's Monopole Classico because it inspired us to feature this wine in our Newsletter again. It is terrific!

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

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.

Part 2 of our Sancerre Guide is Here! All About Silex!

Part 2 of our Sancerre Guide is Here! All About Silex!

The wines of Sancerre are getting better and better, which can largely be attributed to two things: better viticultural practices, and a more Burgundian approach to terroir, i.e. single-vineyard or soil-specific cuvées. To get a better look at these changes, there's no better place to look than the flinty (aka "silex") soils on the eastern edges of Sancerre.
