Domaine Estelle Sauvion Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie ($18.99): There are unmistakable notes of bright citrus on the nose, leading into a palate of surprising richness, which retains the hallmark brightness and salinity of Muscadet in spite of seeing a little bit of oak. Delectable and delightful.
Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuters cuvee ($21.99): This wine is all about the bright fresh purity of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir! Bright and juicy with sweet spice, earth and loads of red and black raspberry fruit. This is a wine for early consumption but will easily age a few years.
Le P’tit Paysan Pape ($25.99): A traditional Southern Rhone blend of grenache, syrah, mourvedre and cinsault, Le P’tit Pape shows the grapes at its freshest, most delicate, with wonderful red fruit aromas, great acidity, and a soft finish.
