Phil’s Picks

One of the great parts of my job is that I get to do lots of “research” to help select the best wines for the store.  Below are some wines I always love as well as some ones I’ve tried lately and really enjoyed and a few wines that maybe are outside your comfort zone and are worth checking out.

2016 Duclaux - Cote Rotie La Chana
750ml | SKU 76140 
I had a great visit with the Duclaux brothers last year in their cellars right at the base of the Cote Brune. This is
2016 Bois de Boursan - Chateauneuf du Pape
750ml | SKU 76532 
One of my favorite growers in Chateauneuf. "Old school" CDP always balanced-never too heavy and amazing price to quality ratio
2015 Chateau Tour St Bonnet - Medoc
750ml | SKU 77477 
Always one of my favorite Petit Chateau. From the outstanding 2015 vintage, this beauty drinks like a wine at twice the price-and it tastes like will not mistake this for a Napa wine!
2015 Domaine des Pasquiers - Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet Prestige Cuvee Prebayon
750ml | SKU 77877  I "discovered" Pasquiers on a buying trip to France a few years ago and they've become the most popular reds in the shop! This is their special cuvee of Sablet and we haven't been able to get any in the last few years, so stock up!
2018 Weiser-Kunstler - Estate Feinherb
750ml | SKU 78946  Weiser-Kunstler is a tiny "cult" producer who produce incredible Rieslings from ancient vines neat Traben-Trabach. We get one shot a year at their stuff and this off Dry Riesling is simply superb!
2017 Dr. Hermann - Erdener Treppchen Kabinett #6
750ml | SKU 79985 
Picked in the last week of September and vinified in a classic fuder, the 2017 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett –6– is a clear, fresh, ripe and flinty Riesling with racy acidity and a piquant, lush finish. this is a serious and tensioned Kabinett with a long, complex finish.
2015 Bandol Rouge Gros Nore
750ml | SKU 80120  Just tasted this last week with the owner of the Domaine. Absolutley blew me away! Textbook Bandol rouge, with all that funky Mouvedre character. Makes you want a steak and a big cigar! Phil Bernstein
2018 Haag, Willi - Veldenzer Qba Feinherb Alte Reben Grauschiefer
750ml | SKU 80141  Willi Haag makes classic Mosel Rieslings at great prices. This bottling is done in an off-dry "Feinherb" style so it's right at that sweet spot between fruity and dry. Really terrific Riesling that sells for a song!
2017 Clos du Mont Olivet - Cotes du Rhone V.V.
750ml | SKU 81459 
This outstanding Cotes du Rhone drinks like a "baby Chateauneuf". Loads of complexity and tons of freshness. really superb
