  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Sangouard 2011 Beaujolais-Villages La Citadelle

    Domaine Sangouard
    2011 Beaujolais-Villages
    La Citadelle

    $15

    More substantial than a Beaujolais Nouveau, less serious than a Cru Beaujolais, this lively Gamay is great for a picnic or informal dinner.

    • A youthful nose with concentrated black cherry, raspberry, and strawberry jam aromas. Medium fruit intensity. Light truffle and earthy notes. Slightly tart, zesty, red fruit flavors play on the palate. Slightly angular tannins, medium acidity, and a medium-long finish characterize this light, attractive, juicy red. Likely to be a good accompaniment to pasta. At peak now. Drink by 2016–2017.

      Food pairing: light red meats or pasta

  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Bel Avenir 2010 Chenas Grand Guinchay

    Domaine Bel Avenir
    2010 Chenas
    Grand Guinchay

    $16

    Not your normal Beaujolais — this is a serious Gamay that has taken months to vinify, and it has gravitas and style! A little on the lighter, fruitier side compared to our other Beaujolais Crus.

    • Delicate, with aromas of strawberry, fresh thyme, and a hint of violets. Notable for minerality on the finish with tangy cherry flavors. Light but with the kind of bright acidity that makes a great food wine.

  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Bel Avenir 2010 Juliénas Les Capitans

    Domaine Bel Avenir
    2010 Juliénas
    Les Capitans

    $17

    Not your normal Beaujolais — this is a serious Gamay that has taken months to vinify, and it has gravitas and style! Great for casual eating.

    • Initially reticent, but with a little time in the glass the wine releases an appetizing perfume of roses, herbs, cherry, nutmeg, and other spices, presaging a cherry and spice-dominated flavor profile. Still young, with concentrated, layered fruit veiled by tannins, but opens up with a little patience, suggesting a nice development ahead. Attractive even now for its cherry fruit and fine tannins on a balanced finish, but likely to reveal its true potential between now and around 2019.

      Food pairing: Picnics, chicken dishes, pasta—or more serious fare

  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Bel Avenir 2010 Morgon Les Charmes

    Domaine Bel Avenir
    2010 Morgon
    Les Charmes

    $17

    Not your normal Beaujolais — this is a serious Gamay that has taken months to vinify, and it has gravitas and style! The Morgon Cru leans toward Burgundy style, with a similar sense of seriousness and elegance.

    • A playful nose whets the appetite with aromas of black raspberries, blueberries, and prunes. Concentrated, slightly jammy fruit. Hints of truffles, wet earth, pepper, and other spices round out the nose. Tart, dark fruit dominates the palate. Mouth coating. Weighty, with grippy tannins and an almost chewy texture. Floral hints on the mid-palate. Moderate acidity. Baking chocolate emerges on a dry, medium-length finish. Well-integrated flavors. Good balance and generous structure. Verging on full-bodied. A fruity, juicy, generously proportioned wine.

      Food pairing: Roast or stewed beef in sauce

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Cherry aromas, suggestions of earth, brambly fruit, light truffle scents, licorice, and a hint of mocha on the nose. Medium-bodied, with moderately intense dark cherry flavors. Good structure. Has a nice fleshiness. Balanced, with supple tannins. Builds in intensity on the finish. Still young. Check back again around 2016.

      Food pairing: ham and lighter meats

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2010 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Pungent nose suggesting cherries but also with earthy notes and hints of strawberry and herbs. Light-bodied but not without presence. Bright strawberry fruit, soft acidity, and light tannins make this wine easy to drink now, but it gains weight with air exposure, suggesting it will develop further in bottle. Excellent value for everyday drinking.

      Food pairing: Salmon, roast chicken, pasta, lamb chops

  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Bel Avenir 2011 Saint-Amour Laura

    Domaine Bel Avenir
    2011 Saint-Amour
    Laura

    $18

    Not your normal Beaujolais — this is a serious Gamay that has taken months to vinify, and it has gravitas and style! With its name and easy appeal, we find it a great wine to share over Valentine’s Day.

    • Bright, and fruity with citrus notes, scents of red berries, and a hint of banana for an immediately appealing nose that rises up from the glass. The bright nose doesn’t quite prepare you for the intense, concentrated fruit on the palate; this is more serious wine than it may seem at first, with layers of fruit balanced by brisk acidity and light tannins on an extended finish. Has both presence and poise. Very tasty now, but likely to improve through 2016—perhaps longer. Delicious. An exceptionally good example of this appellation. An exceptional value.

      Food pairing: Picnics, chicken dishes, pasta—or more serious fare, such as beef ribs, duck, or lamb

  • French Red Beaujolais Wine, Domaine Bel Avenir 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Elodie

    Domaine Bel Avenir
    2010 Moulin-a-Vent
    Elodie

    $19

    Not your normal Beaujolais — this is a serious Gamay that has taken months to vinify, and it has gravitas and style! You’ll be able to taste the fruit in this one, and taste it well — a perfect complement to an informal dinner.

    • Concentrated red fruit and leafy herbal and spice aromas shape the nose. Medium body. The palate suggests a confection with layers of spice and plummy fruit balanced by good acidity and somewhat rustic tannins.

      Food pairing: Pizza

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2012 Ladoix

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2012 Ladoix
     

    $22

    A particularly fine example of this small and little-known Burgundy appellation, this Pinot Noir is a must for the value seeker looking for off-the-beaten-track wines.

    • Pure fruit on the nose, tending toward strawberries, but overlaid with leather, musk, and darker fruit scents. Delicate yet intense. Keenly focused, with just enough acidity to balance the fruit and light tannins. Rich, seductive mid-palate preceding a moderately long, slightly grainy finish. A very pretty wine, in every sense—but not without substance. Far more refined than commonly encountered Ladoix. That Xavier Durand devotes this kind of attention to this oft-overlooked appellation speaks volumes about his dedication to fine winemaking.

      Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes

    • This bright, youthful Pinot Noir has great acidity on the finish and very nice cherry fruit. Light and refreshing, serve with light fare.

      Food pairing: Chevre

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet 2009 Crozes-Hermitage

    Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet
    2009 Crozes-Hermitage
     

    $22

    A good wine with good value, this is a great introduction to Syrahs from the southern part of Northern Rhône. Ready to drink now, it shows off the excellence of the 2009 vintage.

    • An inky, nearly opaque purple. The nose is evolving, offering animal scents, wet leaves, wet earth and a slightly rancio element, as well as meat, truffles, currants and other dark fruit. The palate suggests mocha, black raspberries, and blackberries, with violet emerging on the mid-palate. Well-integrated, with grippy tannins. Robust, expansive wine with a smooth texture that complements its massive frame. Approachable now but likely to drink well through 2024. Serve with roasts or smoked meats.

      Food pairing: Serve w/roasts or smoked meats

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2011 Côte de Nuits Villages

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2011 Côte de Nuits Villages
     

    $22

    This Pinot Noir features beautiful, concentrated fruit. An amazing value, we find it a great everyday wine. Ready to drink!

    • Still young and a little distant at first, mostly with dusty, earthy notes on the nose but also surprisingly concentrated ripe fruit scents, a hint of floral perfume, and suggestions of wood. Comparatively light in body, but exhibiting rich fruit flavors balanced by brisk acidity on the attack before a rush of renewed fruit on the mid-palate and then an extended, slightly tart finish with a hint of cola spiciness. Approachable now, but likely to improve in bottle through around 2016. Excellent value. An excellent example of the appellation.

      Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes
