  • Domaine Huet, Le Haut-Lieu, Vouvray

    $42.00

    “The 2009 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux offers rich and super ripe fruit on the nose, but is still precise and fresh and displays some earthy flavors. Round, intense and elegant on the palate, this is a sweet and salty, very elegant, pure and persistent Chenin of great delicacy. Silky textured and with a lovely refined acidity, this concentrated and densely woven bottling is still very young, full of energy and provided with discreet power. The finish is compact, salty, very long and gives a revival of all the ripe fruit flavors. Not a coolish but a ripe, very energetic and just beautiful wine. Drink now and over the next 50+ years.” -95 WA

  • Henri Bourgeois, Cote de Mont Damnes, Sancerre

    $45.00

    “The lime-green 2013 Sancerre Les Baronnes is a modern classic of the region and a good example to demonstrate the polished aromatic yet authentic, pure and elegant style of Henri Bourgeois’ wines. Sourced from chalky clay soils of the hills separating Sancerre from Chavignol this medium-bodied, juicy yet minerally structured and zesty Sauvignon from 20-to 40-year-old vines offers attractive white fruit flavors intertwined with piquant citrus aromas and dusty chalk flavors. This is a very pleasant, well-balanced, already accessible and stimulating Sancerre of good intensity and quality with lovely citrus flavors also in the finish and aftertaste.”-90WA
