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.

Our Guide to Madeira is Here

Madeira is a wine of history, made by mistake and crafted by circumstance. With the ability to last for hundreds of years, sometimes it is, quite literally, bottled history.

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.

Featured: The Cat's Out of the Baga!

Now, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of “Baga” or at least haven’t looked into the grape too much. We hope today changes that for you. Wine lovers are likely to compare Baga to Pinot Noir or Nebbiolo, especially when they struggle to describe its singularity and unique charms.

FEATURED: Sec Symbole with Depth

Occasionally, when we are tasting wines, something miraculous happens. A ripple of excitement moves through the shop. It starts with mutters of “Oh. This is good.” Then it grows into glasses being passed around. Second pours. We all seem to realize at once: This is good. Such was the case when we tasted Sec Symbole. It is really good.
