    This wine is a perfect representation of Old World style through new production methods. It's complex, rich, and earthy with dark fruit notes, great structure, and a smooth and silky finish.

    Gattinara enjoys a sub-alpine climate and produces an elegant style of Nebbiolo that emphasizes freshness. It has a shorter maceration period than that of Barolo, making it more approachable upon release.

    Jules Lassalle started his winery in 1942 and it is still family-owned. Their wine is fresh, elegant, and you'll be amazed at how well it drinks with your dinner.

    It's drinking absolutely superb right now, soft and silky tannins with a vibrant acidity that pairs perfect with early spring dinners. At this age and this price, it definitely overdelivers.

    I like that it's a classic Pinot Noir rosé, and has great mellow red berries, light brioche, and enough acidity to make it very clean. I'd be hard-pressed to find any bubbly less than $90 that's this good.

    Saint-Bris is sort of a Burgundy trivia question because it is the only village whose wines are made from Sauvignon Blanc (as opposed to Chardonnay, which dominates most of the region).

    The 2011 Viñedos de el Sequé Monastrell, $36, from Alicante is a second label of the Rioja producer Artadi, whose wines demand top dollar.
