Bachey Legros Saint Aubin 1er Cru Les Champlots ($45.99): Domaine Champeau Pouilly-Fume shows pale yellow with a pronounced bouquet of white currants and grapefruit zest. Pure, focused fruity nose with subtle mineral notes. It is dry, lively and fresh with well-defined fruit. Grown on the opposite bank from Sancerre, this wine is a little more complex and floral.
Lavau Rasteau ($18.99): Crisp blackberry and cherry flavors are bright, but this complex wine is more about their interplay with earthier tones of smoke, game and mushroom. Rich and full on the palate yet balanced firmly with tannins and acidity, it’s a stately wine with a lingering, slightly astringent chestnut finish.
