Eva Fricke Riesling Trocken “Kiedrich” 2013, Rheingau ($31.99): An and coming winemaker who produced her first vintage in 2006, Eva Fricke was previously at Leitz and is extraordinarily familiar with the terroir of Rheingau. Aromas of stone fruits and minerals, with beautiful acidity make this a wonderful pairing
Clotilde Davenne St. Bris 2014, Burgundy ($18.99): A unique wine from the only region in Burgundy allowed to grow Sauvignon Blanc, the St. Bris tastes like a cross of Sancerre, Chablis, and Burgundy all in one. With great mineral intensity, and round citrus notes in the palate, this makes a wonderful aperitif, and pairs easily with shellfish and light seafood.
Ottin Pinot Noir 2013, Vallee d’Aoste, Italy ($32.99): From the Italian side of the Alps, this is an intensely aromatic, light-bodied pinot noir with structure and acidity for medium term cellaring. Aromas of strawberries and raspberries with low tannins make this an easy red for drink with fish.
Moissenet Bonnard Bourgogne Rouge “Cuvee de l’Oncle Paul” 2014, Burgundy ($22.99): Based in Pommard, the family has owned vineyards for eight generations. Named after a great uncle, this is a muscular and rich Bourgogne with black currant and herbal notes that drinks like a baby Pommard, with bigger tannins and acidity than the typical appellation wine.
