FRESH OFF THE BOAT
Loire Valley, France
Arnaud Lambert's resurrection of the historic Château de Brézé is grabbing the world's attention. If you're serious about white wine, this dynamic set from Saumur has just landed in our warehouse. Time to get on board.
Thinking and Writing
You know we've always got something to say. Keep up with us here for our Jack Handy moments.
If brisk, mineral white wine is your calling, this wine needs to be stocked, chilled and ready when you come home. Nearly impossible to top in price, complexity and overall delivery, the Clos du Midi is one of our top selling wines, poured by the glass at about 40 of the best restaurants in California, including many of L.A's top spots from AOC to Son of a Gun to Otium. My sincere advice is to get in on this one now before all you can do is recount the day that you could've bought it for the price of a couple of lobster tacos- which, by the way, would be just the thing to wash down with this lively white.
It's our great pleasure to be able to offer any wine from the great domaine Simon Bize, much less one with six years of age on it from an undeniably excellent vintage. Bize is that rare gem of a producer that still somehow flies under the radar (though we suspect not for much longer). In Burgundy, few producers remain that offer this kind of quality and ageability at such low prices.
