2018 CHATEAU LAROQUE
CABERNET FRANC
$9.99 BTL./$119.88 CASE

Cabernet Franc from one of the most unlikely of places - vineyards that stare at the walled city of Carcassone in Languedoc.

Tasty, happy and almost making you want to slide down rainbows, this offering engages with the raspberry, coffee and turned earth of the grape yet the savory earth, anise and rosemary that indicative of the garrigue of this area. At 10-bucks, one can afford to drink this from the firehose!

2019 RAVIER APREMONT
VIN DE SAVOIE BLANC
$11.99 BTL./$143.88 CASE

A gushing and adventurous wine from the Savoie region in the Alps. Made from 100% Jacquere and an Alpine waterfall of a white wine, this is the liquid equivalent of dropping trou’ and jumping into a cold mountain lake. Bursting aromas and flavors of green apple, crystallized lemon and mineral call you back for glass upon glass.

2018 MATROT MEURSAULT
$59.99 BTL./$719.88 CASE

Matrot is one of Meursault’s most recognizable names and Thierry, now along with his daughters Adele and Elsa, continue to be standard bearers for wines from this village. A Meursault purist when it comes to the diverse terroir of the village, this family doesn’t like their wines hopped up on a bunch of new oak, hence 1-to-5 year barrels are utilized.

Sexy aromas of creamy hazelnut, cereal, honeyed pear and spice. Rich upon entry with classic Matrot polish and definition. Expansive, this full-flavored wine shows excellent cut and balance which carry over into the searing, minerally and pure finish.

2019 AMEZTOI TXAKOLINA
$19.99 BTL./$239.88 CASE

Ameztoi has achieved cult-like status with their pink version, however, the best and most classic wine is their white Txakoli. From the estate's vineyards above San Sebastien, one can see the Atlantic Ocean, visualize, and feel the profound influence that it has on the grapes and the wines.

Naturally spritzy and at low (under 11.5%) alcohol, Ameztoi's Getaraiko Txakolina is a visceral white wine experience. Resoundingly fresh and shimmering, detailed and precise with perfumed crushed stone, seashore and lime-blossom scents that follow into a pleasing, bracing, vibrant, fiercely dry and elevated mouth-feel. A marvelous accompaniment to sushi or other fresh seafood.

Zippy and semi-sparkly as usual with seashore, cranberry, cherry-pit and lime-blossom scents that follow into an active, pleasing, bracing, vibrant, chalky and elevated mouth-feel. Truly a wine that will undoubtedly make anyone happy, enjoy with crab if you can find some as well as mussels or sushi.
