2013 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina, Spain

90% Hondarribi Zuri, 10% Hondarribi Beltza from Getaria, a coastal town in the community of Basque Country in the North of Spain. Importer's notes: "In the traditional style of Getaria, this light and crisp wine is bottled with a little bit of residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz. Bright briny sea salt combined with limey fruits. Fresh and eminently quaffable. Enjoy with anchovies, sardines, shellfish, grilled vegetables."

2013 Schloss Gobelsburg "Gobelsburger" Riesling Kamptal, Austria

Dry, smooth and wonderfully aromatic, this is classic Riesling. It has white flower aromas and lightly spicy fruits with a touch of lychee and pineapple. Attractive minerality takes over at the finish. Great with Asian-influenced dishes but also with fish, or try it as a refreshing start to a meal.

Named after the river Kamp, Kamptal is an important wine-producing sub-region in Austria’s Niederosterreich region. It’s best-known for its excellent Gruner Veltliners and Rieslings. The predominant soil types are loess, which is particularly known for producing great Gruner, and primary rock, renowned for creating elegant Riesling.

2013 Manincor "Kalterersee Keil" Lago di Caldaro Classico Superiore, Italy

100% Schiava from the Alto Adige region of Northern Italy. Producer's notes: "Bright, pale ruby color; delicate fruity nose; notes of cherry and toasted almond. Great with charcuterie, cheese, a perfect pasta wine." Biodynamically farmed and produced.

2013 Bishop's Peak Pinot Noir, San Luis Obispo County, California

100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in San Luis Obispo County in the Central Coast of California. It was aged for eight months in 15% new French oak. Producer's notes: "...bursts with aromas of strawberry and raspberry complimented with subtle notes of earth and soil. This medium bodied wine has elegant flavors consistent with its aromas, soft tannins and refreshing acidity. Enjoy a glass with a wedge of Fontina cheese or garlic and herb roasted pork tenderloin.This medium bodied wine has elegant flavors consistent with its aromas, soft tannins and refreshing acidity."

2010 Daniel et Denis Alary "La Font d'Estevenas" Côtes du Rhône-Villages Cairanne

94 points Robert Parker
"Alary’s top cuvee, the 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cairanne Font d’Estevanas is a blend of equal parts old vine Grenache and Syrah, the latter planted in 1961, grown in the clay/limestone hillsides. Aged in older barriques and demi-muids, it is a fabulous unfiltered wine offering abundant notes of licorice, truffles, camphor, black currants, kirsch, raspberries and hints of white chocolate and dusty, loamy, earthy soils. It should drink well for a decade or more.

The Alary family's involvement in viticulture and wine production dates back as far as 1692, to the reign of Louis XIV. Run by Denis Alary and increasingly his young son, Jean-Etienne, who is still a teenager, this estate produces some of the finest wines that emerge from the Cotes du Rhone village of Cairanne.

A. Margaine Brut Rosé

92 Points Robert Parker: "Clean veins of chalky minerality support the fruit in the NV Brut Rose. A vibrant, intensely perfumed wine, the Rose impresses for its energy, cut and focus. This is far from an easygoing wine, rather it is a Rose that demands to be served at the dinner table. Sweet floral notes add lift, but this remains a distinctly focused Rose all about tension and pure drive. Margaine’s Rose is 78% Chardonnay, 11% Pinot Noir and 11% still Pinot, all from the 2009 vintage."

"Arnaud Margaine took over this six and a half hectare estate from his father Bernard in 1989 and is the fourth generation of his family to work these vineyards in the Mogntagne de Reims. The estate was founded in the 1920s and was expanded by Bernard in the 1950s. In 1977 Bernard joined the Special Club and Arnaud has continued his father’s commitment to high quality champagnes and continues to improve his raw materials in the vineyard." Importer

Champagne de Sousa Cuvée 3-A Grand Cru Extra-Brut

"Avize, Aÿ, and Ambonnay are the only three villages in Champagne classified as Grand Cru whose name begins with an "A". This explains how this cuvée got its name, but what makes it unique is its composition of 50% Chardonnay from Avize blended with 50% Pinot Noir from Aÿ and Ambonnay. Two varietals, three Grands Crus that each lend their own personality to the cuvée.
Pale gold in colour tinged with copper highlights, this champagne boasts intense, fine bubbles. It is dense and full, a sign of great richness, and leaves lovely legs along the side of the glass. The nose is flattering, with typical notes of Chardonnay such as lemon, pineapple, and especially mango, heightened by butteriness from its oak barrel ageing. Aromas of red berries such as blackcurrant and raspberry, typical of Pinot Noir, can also be detected, along with scents of liquorice." Producer

Jacquesson Cuvée 737 Extra-Brut

"Unlike most houses, Jacquesson do not seek to produce a consistent house style in their non-vintage Champagnes, preferring instead to show the character of each vintage. The profile therefore changes over time, and depending on which vintage is the main one in the blend, a specific numbered cuvée is attributed. Each cuvée is unique, although the wines are usually characterised by elegance and minerality. They also tend to be good food companions and age well.

Jacquesson was established in 1798 in the town of Dizy to the north of Epernay. It is still an independently run house, and has been in the careful hands of the Chiquet brothers – Jean-Hervé and Laurent - since 1974. The brothers are advocates of zéro dosage, or minimal addition of sugar at the disgorging stage, resulting in extra-dry Champagnes." Importer

2011 Sea Smoke "Sea Spray" Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine

"The nuanced nose expresses cranberries, lavender, fresh bread and lemon curd. The wine enters the palate with energetic freshness and finishes with delightful length.

Hand harvested in late August of 2011, the Pinot Noir for this methode champenoise sparkling wine is the result of a careful cluster selection from Sea Smoke’s estate vineyard. Following six months of sur lie aging in barrel, the wine was bottle aged an additional 16 months en tirage prior to disgorging. The wine was finished with no dosage, to preserve its finesse." Producer

2004 Pierre Paillard Grand Cru Brut

91 points: International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Pungent redcurrant, pear skin and anise aromas, along with notes of smoky minerals and chamomile. Sappy poached pear and buttered toast flavors are braced by zesty blood orange and ginger, picking up a honeysuckle nuance with air. Shows impressive clarity and punch on the finish, which features dusty mineral and cherry pit qualities.”

Located in Bouzy, in the historic heart of the Champagne Pierre Paillard has its Grand Cru classified vineyards since 1935.
