With its smoky, black cherry fruit and subtle herbal underpinnings, this is a Pinot reflecting very singular terroir. It's not trying to act like any of the other great pinots of the world.

It’s a versatile wine that you can enjoy with nearly any kind of food (we drank it chilled last night with roast chicken), or all by itself, so there’s a deep discount for stocking up.

If you like fresh, mineral-driven white wine, you'll go bonkers for the wines of Paul-Henry Pellé. This guy is a star. Qualitatively, these wines can go tête-a-tête with top-shelf Sancerre, but they're a great deal less expensive. Farming is organic.
Pellé uses both stainless steel and wood, not only for élevage, but fermentation as well. This explains why the wines have bracing citric electricity tempered by a suave, creamy texture – "lemon curd" often pops up in our tasting notes.

"This succulent, juicy wine has ripe cherry flavors, generous tannins and freshness all at the same time. Acidity and fruitiness hold the wine together and promise aging. Drink from 2021." -Roger Voss
