Charles Joguet "Clos de la Dioterie" Chinon 2012

94+ Our Score
(7/2015) Joguet is the most storied grower in Chinon and "Clos de la Dioterie" is Joguet's most special wine. Dioterie is a true single vineyard parcel, situated right next to the winery, and is home to the property's oldest vines. We were lucky enough to taste this special wine in Joguet's famed chalk caves of Chinon. It is a deliciously concentrated effort, and though it will ideally sit for 5-7 years before being consumed, it is more approachable than one would think. Comparable to world class right-bank Bordeaux, with a more nervy spine.

Philippe Foreau "Moelleux" Clos du Naudin Vouvray 1999

94 Our Score
(12/2016) Straight from the great cellar of Foreau, this 17-year-old white wine is beyond complex. Layers and layers of yummy flavors are revealed in this vibrant, lively wine, including classic Chenin notes of mushroom, baked orchard fruit, baked citrus fruit, ginger, yellow florals, honey, lavender, cigar ash and chalk, all presented in a viscous robe and a searing finale. Delicious as dessert, partnered with scallops in beurre blanc or consumed while lounging in bed on Sunday morning!

Domaine du Viking "Cuvee Aurelie" Vouvray 1995

This 1995 Vouvray shows off Sauternes-like qualities of tropical fruit and honey with laser beam acidity and great minerality. Pay no attention to Wine Spectator's drinking window, as these are going strong with very fresh, vibrant and delicious flavors!

(10/2010) "This is sweet, but relies more on precision and high-toned green apple, green fig, honeysuckle and quince notes that are broad, rich and powerful. The finish shows a drier edge, with chamomile flower and quinine hints stretching it out. Drink now through 2011. 50 cases imported."

Domaine du Viking "Cuvee Aurelie" Vouvray 1996

This ’96 bottling shows more mature and developed nuances compared to the ‘95. Look for notes of button mushroom, honey and nutty aromas with a lot of limestone and mineral. There is incredible texture here with vibrant acidity and a really long finish.

(10/2010) "Sweet and mature, but fresh and pure, with mango, dried peach and persimmon notes up front, followed by mouthwatering green tea and ginger notes that stretch through the still-lively finish. A nice waxy hint weaves through the background. Drink now through 2012. 50 cases imported."

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(5/2010) "Light, bright gold. Ripe peach and nectarine on the nose, with exotic spice and floral qualities adding complexity. Open-knit, honeyed orchard and pit fruit flavors are braced by gentle acidity, picking up spicecake and passion fruit character with air. Already accessible, and showing impressive complexity now, but should be even better with another five years of aging."

Chateau de l'Eperonniere "Croix Picot" Savennieres 2014

92+ Our Score
(5/2017) - Excellent quality dry Chenin Blanc from this tiny Rosenthal import. Everything is done by hand here, with only wild yeasts used. Fermented and raised in used barrels, this rich and weighty wine checks in at 15% abv, a throwback to old school Savennieres. Baked apple, citrus, almond butter, chalk-laced honey and limestone minerality flavors create a complex palate, with a searing acid backbone that is nearly missed, yet is key to the wonderful balance.

90 Decanter
91 Our Score
(7/2016) Utilizing some of the most coveted property in the region, Domaine Vacheron continues to create classic terroir-driven expressions of Sancerre. Hand harvested from certified organic and biodynamic vineyards, this mineral-rich and zesty 2015 bottling is bright, clean and crisp. Simply put, it is Sauvignon Blanc at its finest. Pair with salad greens, sautéed whitefish, goat cheese or most any other dish you can think of this summer.

Henri Bourgeois "La Cote des Monts Damnes" Sancerre 2015

92 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "The 2015 Sancerre La Côte des Monts Damnés has a deep, intense and smoky nose with a strong lemon perfume. Full-bodied, round and elegant, with a vital but refined acidity, this is a pretty lush, aromatic and charming Monts Damnés, but its finish is long and complex and reveals a very nice phenolic grip, finesse and tension. The 2015 is excellent already today, but will gain further complexity over the years. Nice bitter grapefruit aromas in the aftertaste. Drink Date: 2016 - 2026."

Noella Morantin "Lot 118" Chez Charles" Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2013

92 Our Score
(3/2015) Located in the Touraine district of the Loire, right next to staff favorite Clos Roche Blanche. Noella Morantin is another huge proponent of the ?natural? style of wine making. One look at the color of this wine is a dead giveaway to that philosophy. Unfiltered and glorious in its natural state, with intense flavors of citrus and peach. The wine has searing high acid, with a fleshy green texture that is mouth coating. Utterly delectable and able to fulfill a wide range of food pairings, but also fun on its own!
