  1. 1749 2016 SAUVIGNON BLANC LOIRE VALLEY

    Item #: 322274
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    With a forward nose of vivid fruits, from gooseberry to white peach and white grapefruit, melded with a touch of river water, lanolin and nougat, the palate on 1749 continued and expanded on the initial fruit-laden theme. Sweet yet almost tart, notes of star fruit, more gooseberry and white grapefruit merged with a lush mouthfeel, counterbalanced by good acidity to keep it clean and buoyant. Hints of apricots, orange blossoms and clover honey furthered the delicious depth on the palate. The finish is fresh and quick but with a lingering fruit essence and mixed floral touch that reverberates nicely.

    This wine is perfect for the warm weather we

  6. CHARLES JOGUET 2015 CHINON VARENNES DU GRAND CLOS

    Item #: 322154
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Les Varennes du Grand Clos is a slope of siliceous clay and limestone that has proven its ability to yield complex Chinons that stand the test of time-old bottles from decades past are still in their prime. Farming is organic, and the wine ages for over a year in barrel before bottling. The trademark of Les Varennes is its finesse: while structure is certainly not lacking, there is a harmony to fruit, acid, and tannins that allows us to pull the cork today. Its earthy flavors pair perfectly with rustic French cuisine; try a beef stew or wild mushrooms for a guaranteed match.

  10. DENIZOT 2017 SANCERRE

    Item #: 351822
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The 2017 Sancerre from Denizot Pere et Fils is a lovely showing. The wine was fermentated in concrete vats and aged on fine lees. The result is a fresh, clean wine, with pretty aromas of kiwi, lime and wet stones all taking shape in the glass. The palate is beautifully textured and underlined by bright acidity, which leads into the mineral driven finish.

  15. DOMAINE DE LA TAILLE AUX LOUPS 2015 CLOS DE LA BRETONNIERE

    Item #: 345502
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 92
    Bretonniere comes from a 3 hectare monopole vineyard in Vouvray. Bretonniere combines remarkable density and richness with vivacity deriving from the wine's minerality and focused acidity. It can be enjoyed young for the accessible fruit - especially if decanted - or aged for many years which will bring out the nuances of a great Chenin Blanc from a top site in Vouvray.

    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - " Juicy, with good energy in reserve, this has a core of ginger, quince, apple and fig notes that should open up soon enough, backed by a light minerally thread through the finish. Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2019. 40 cases imported."

  18. DOMAINE DE REUILLY 2017 BLANC PIERRES PLATES ORGANICALLY FARMED

    Item #: 333002
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    100% Sauvignon Blanc.

    When tasting the wines of Denis Jamain, it is clear that the appellation of Reuilly, in the eastern Loire, is experiencing a renaissance, moving far beyond its former status as the "poor man's Sancerre." This land was once a source of great pride, having been part of a gift of the 7th century king, Dagobert, to the Royal Abbey of Saint Denis. Phylloxera had ravaged the majority of the vineyards here in the late 19th century, but Camille Rousseau (Denis
