ALSACE

Thomas Baur, Vins Francois Baur, Turckheim

This is why I really love Alsatian wines. They have big, explosive aromatics; they whet the appettite; and have great acidity, perfect for washing down rich, full-flavored food. 

There's really no way to pick and choose from an Alsatian winery's price list. You just smile, take a deep inhale, and buy them all. When one is good, I find that they're ALL good.


BORDEAUX

David & Laurent Siozard, Vignobles Siozard, Lugaignac

David and his brother Laurent are twin brothers and the owners of two top-notch Bordeaux wineries--the Chateau Lapinesse in Pessac-Leognan and the Domaine du Claouset in Entre-Deux-Mers. They are 6th generation winemakers but a recent discovery of gallo-Roman ruins on their property sugges a far older heritage here. 

Their wines have been super popular since we began offering them. They give us exactly what we need - succulent whites, rich reds, and stunning sweet wines. We love everything they make.

 

Vincent LaGrave, Fleur Eymerits, Lalande de Pomerol

Vincent Lagrave is a former rugbyman now farming exactly 1 hectare in Lalande de Pomerol, and in the process of renovating a building using his own homemade scaffolding--made from old pallets! This is the sort of one-man-show we're most excited about-- hands on, and high quality.

Lagrave makes two lovely Bordeaux; his other small holding is on the other side of the road--just OUTSIDE the Pomerol appellation. His wines showcase Merlot and Cabernet Franc at their succulent, lovely best.

GASCONY

Guy & Colette Vignoli, Domaine de Laguille, Bas Armagnac

Guy and Colette farm a beautiful 70-hectare farm in the Gers, approximately 2 hours from nowhere and are one of the finest distillers of Armagnac in the area. Their 200-year-old copper still is worth the visit on its own and the range of distillates is truly wonderful. This is how Guy has made a name for Domaine de Laguille over the years.

But then a funny thing happened. Somebody figured out tha the everyday dry wines were pretty good too. And they decided to sell them pretty darn cheaply too. What we get from Laguille at just $12/bottle is kinda sorta remarkable!
