H. Blin Champagne Brut ($34.99): From 80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, this deliciously fresh and wonderfully toasty Champagne is made by a cooperative of more than 100 growers in Marne. This Champagne is bright and fresh with notes of crisp green apple, and a great rich texture. One of the best values in sparkling wine, not just Champagne.
Chateau Gillet Bordeaux ($12.99): A great addition to your “everyday red” rotation, with a very reasonable price and oodles of the Merlot based Gillet Rouge shows beautifully with dark, intense color, heady aromas of red fruit and spice and a fairly substantial body for such an otherwise modest wine. Smooth tannins and developed fruit make this Bordeaux a “drink-now” crowd pleaser.
Regalato Pinot Grigio ($12.99): Tart, ripe Granny Smith apple, bright notes of fresh citrus zest, and a clean, crisp finish make this a quintessential example of why Pinot Grigio is so easy to love and easier to drink. Perfect as an aperitif, a casual afternoon sipper, or as a crowd-pleaser for your next event.
Odderro Barbera d’Alba ($19.99): This Barbera is made by an historic Barolo estate. This Barbera is full-bodied are rich. It delivers dark plums, cherries, a hint of black pepper and an earthy undertone. The finish is bright, with well integrated tannins and great length.
