RED WINES

OREGON

2014 Hanson Vineyards, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S) 18.99/205.09

Jason and Clark Hanson espouse a non-interventionist approach to winemaking. Emphasizing freshness, acidity, and transparency, Hanson’s 2014 Pinot casts a rusty garnet robe followed by spicy old-school Willamette Valley Pinot aromas of sour cherries, geranium, and orange zest. Bright on the palate, Hanson’s Pinot delivers tangy, lip-smacking notes of cranberries, red raspberries, pie cherries, black tea, and stemmy tannins. Hanson’s Pinot is full of personality, harkening back to the Oregon Pinots of the 1980s: one sip and you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. Enjoyable by itself, Hanson’s Pinot is ideally paired with roast chicken, alder plank salmon, duck confit, vegetable gratins, and earthy braised lentils.

2016 Evesham Wood, Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills Cuvee, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon (S) 23.99/259.09

Evesham Wood’s Eola-Amity Hills Cuvee is a select blend of barrels chosen to highlight the AVA’s cool, spicy fruit and distinctive earthiness. Bright purple-ruby in the glass, Evesham Wood’s Eola-Amity Hills Cuvee opens with fresh aromas of black raspberries, Assam tea, juniper berries, and earthy cranberries. Suave yet invigorating on the palate, bristling acidity and fine tannins propel notes of cranberries, raspberries, brown spices, rose petals, and loamy earth. Deft, subtle, and impeccably balanced, the wine’s structure perfectly matches its tangy berry fruit expressions. A long, dusty soil signature completes the wine and urges it to be paired now and over the coming seven years with broiled salmon, pan-seared pork chops, grilled chicken, and veggie kebabs.

FRANCE

2017 Marcel Lapierre, Beaujolais, Raisins Gaulois, Vin de France (O) 16.99/183.49

Marcel Lapierre is the founding father of Kermit Lynch’s original Gang of Four. Focusing on the organic viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking methods of the great Jules Chauvet, Lapierre and his compatriots spearheaded the cru Beaujolais and the natural wine movements. Lapierre’s Raisins Gaulois bottling hails from the domaine’s young vines, situated primarily in the Morgon cru. The wine sports a youthful purple ruby color and bursts out of the glass with a fresh bouquet of crushed blackberries, allspice, violets, and granitic earth. Spicy and energetic on the palate, the wine counters its effusive kernel of freshly crushed berries with tangy acidity, herbal tannins, and tart cherries. Pure and effortlessly quaffable, Lapierre’s Raisins Gaulois lingers with delicious suggestions of boysenberry fruit, Chinese five spice, and smoky minerals. Enjoy now (and often) with roast chicken, grilled summer squashes, and as a picnic red. Serve with a slight chill.

2012 Chateau de la Gardine, Rasteau, Southern Rhone Valley, France 16.99/183.49  reg. 19.99

Chateauneuf-du-Pape superstar Chateau de la Gardine craft their exemplary Rasteau from 40 to 60-year-old vines on three different and distinct soil types located fifteen miles northeast of Chateauneuf. A blend of Grenache (75%) and Syrah, Gardine’s Rasteau casts an opaque mahogany-tinged black plum color and deep impressions of sun-warmed plums, game, roasted coffee, and dried herbs. Warm and inviting, the Rasteau graces the palate with suggestions of dried plums, figs, Szechuan peppercorns, licorice, star anise, and bay leaf. Tangy acidity buoys the wine’s fruit expressions and segues it to a long, lingering, herb-driven finish. A terrific buy in rustic, old-school Southern Rhone rouge. Pair this beauty now and over the coming two years with grilled lamb, ratatouille, hearty stews, and grilled bread slathered with garlicky tapenade. Very limited: only fifteen cases available.

2016 Domaine Filliatreau, Chateau Fouquet, Saumur, Loire Valley, France (B) 17.99/194.29

Filliatreau’s Chateau Fouquet is a sixteen-acre parcel on clay and limestone soils near the hallowed town of Breze. Employing biodynamic methods, the father and son team of Paul and Fredrik Filliatreau have captured the essence of Cabernet Franc as expressed in this special terroir. Translucent plum ruby in the glass, Filliatreau’s Chateau Fouquet casts deep aromas of cassis, bay leaf, dried herbs, button mushrooms, and perfumed clay-limestone soil. Bristling and focused on the attack, the wine opens mid-palate to reveal a generous kernel of black cherry and currant fruit lifted by fine tannins, brilliant acidity, and Saumur’s perfumed soil. Long, plummy, dusty, and earthy on the finish, the Chateau Fouquet is stunningly delicious and ready for enjoyment now and over the next three years with fresh chèvres, braised pork dishes, grilled burgers, and vegetarian dishes employing potatoes, mushrooms, and grilled eggplant.

2010 Chateau Fontesteau, Haut-Medoc, Cru Bourgeois, Bordeaux, France (S) 21.99/237.49

Located just three miles west of Pauillac, Chateau Fontesteau boasts superbly situated vineyards in the center of the Medoc peninsula. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (49%), Merlot (48%), and Cabernet Franc from the great 2010 Medoc vintage, the Fontesteau boasts a deep, mature claret robe and a classic Medoc bouquet of black currants, green herbs, cedar, graphite minerals, and vanilla bean. Lushly textured on the attack, the Fontesteau tightens to reveal soft tannins and the superb acidity of the vintage. Plump cassis and black raspberry fruit mingle with smoky barrel tones, notes of bitter chocolate, and reprises of fresh herbs as the wine lingers on the palate. A superb choice in authentic, classically-proportioned claret, Fontesteau’s 2010 is fully mature and ready for your table tonight with rib roasts of beef, lentils, roast duck, burgers, and recipes featuring earthy mushrooms. Limited: only twenty cases available.

2015 Chateau la Mascaronne, Cotes de Provence, Fazioli, Provence, France 19.99/215.89  reg. 21.99

The sloping vineyards of La Mascaronne cover 110 acres in the heart of the Cotes de Provence appellation. Emphasizing low yields, organic viticulture, and hand harvesting, the Chateau’s classic blend of Syrah (90%) and Mourvèdre wows with a saturated black-plum robe and soaring aromas of Bing cherries, black raspberries, leather, and herbes de Provence. The palate leads with the black cherry, olives, herbs, and tar impressions of the Syrah, then morphs mid-palate to reveal the blackberry, mushroom, tobacco, and leather nuances imparted by the Mourvèdre. Plentiful fine tannins join the chorus and segue the wine to its long, saturated, black-fruited finish. Full-bodied, delicious, and ready for your table, La Mascaronne’s Fazioli will partner beautifully with hearty fare like grilled meats and eggplant, salumi, rosemary-scented stews, and earthy mushrooms. Enjoy now and over the coming five years.

ITALY

2016 Poggio Bonelli, Chianti, Villa Chigi, Tuscany, Italy 11.50/124.20

Poggio Bonelli’s Villa Chigi Chianti is crafted from Sangiovese grown on high-altitude hillside vineyards in Chianti’s prestigious Castelnuovo Berardenga zone. Designed for early enjoyment and versatility at the table, the Villa Chigi delivers on both fronts with a crimson-tinged ruby hue and bright aromas of black cherries, cinnamon, black pepper, and limestone soil. Fresh and zippy on the palate, the wine’s core of cherry fruit meshes seamlessly with classic Chianti notes of blond leather, button mushrooms, rose petals, and menthol. Brisk, invigorating, and delicious, the Villa Chigi Chianti finishes with fine tannins and a lashing of dusty minerals. Folks, this is the Chianti buy of the season. This great value wine will charm year ’round with burgers and steaks hot off the grill, Tuscan bean soups, pizza, lasagna – pretty much everything but seafood.

2009 Cantina Sociale Cooperativa di Copertino, Copertino Riserva, Puglia, Italy 13.99/151.09

Copertino is the DOC to the south and east of the famous Salice Salentino. As in Salice, the Cooperativa’s Copertino is crafted from Negroamaro seasoned by a small dollop of Malvasia Nera. A deep orange-rimmed garnet color, the 2009 Riserva casts a kaleidoscope of aromas from leather to dried currants to ripe cherries to cinnamon to cola to sarsaparilla. Supple in texture, the wine coats the palate with earthy, leathery red fruits followed by framing tannins and savory herbal notes. Long, lingering, and showing impressive staying power, the wine finishes with earthy, mushroom notes alongside reprises of saddle leather, tobacco, game, and black pepper. Like the 2008 that we featured two years ago to a fantastic response, Copertino’s 2009 Riserva is a ridiculously great wine. Buy this by the case and serve with everything that calls for a lusty, earthy, soul-satisfying red.

2016 Luigi Giordano, Langhe Rosso, Piedmont, Italy 16.99/183.49

With vineyards in the prestigious Asili, Montestefano, and Cavanna crus, the Luigi Giordano estate is best known for its traditionally styled Barbarescos. Giordano’s Langhe Rosso is a co-fermented blend of Nebbiolo (90%) and Arneis hailing from vineyards situated within the Barbaresco zone. A transparent, orange-tinged garnet in the glass, Giordano’s Rosso reveals elegant aromas of rose petals, pie cherries, plums, fresh fennel, and Chinese five spice. Light, bright, and energetic on the palate, Giordano’s Rosso delicately unfurls red cherry and raspberry fruit accented by notes of red currants, pomegranate seeds, tobacco, licorice, and botanical herbs. The Arneis seems to soften the Nebbiolo’s stern nature, and the duet harmonizes beautifully on the palate with a deftness that makes the Rosso irresistible and eminently gulpable. Conveying a wonderful textural juxtaposition among floral, juicy, bitter and salty sensations, Giordano’s Rosso will prove immensely versatile at the table. Pair it now and over the coming three years with pretty much everything but seafood and acidic vegetables.

PORTUGAL

2015 Adega Regional de Colares, Vinho Regional Lisboa, Chao Rijo, Portugal (O) 16.99/183.49

Led by viticulturist-enologist Francisco Figueiredo, the Adega Regional de Colares is one of the world’s most conscientious and quality-driven wine cooperatives. Crafted from vineyards located only six miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the Chao Rijo – or “hard soil” in Portuguese – is vinified exclusively from indigenous yeasts and enjoys a long elevage in century-old foudres and barrels. Reflecting an opaque black cherry robe, the Chao Rijo casts perfumed aromas of blueberries, elderberries, smoke, and salty minerals. The Chao Rijo then stains the palate with rich blue and black fruit expressions complicated by suggestions of camphor, dried herbs, and smoky soil. Balancing tannins arrive on the wine’s long, savory finish. A blend of indigenous Castelao (80%) and Tinta Roriz, the Chao Rijo will prove a lovely partner for roast pork, cured meats, savory rice dishes, burgers, and hearty bean soups. A must-try wine!


WHITE WINES

FRANCE

2017 Francis Blanchet, Pouilly-Fume, Cuvee Silice, Loire Valley, France 19.99/215.89

For many aficionados, silex (flint-rich) soils are the ultimate terroir for the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Francis Blanchet’s Cuvee Silice hails from the domaine’s most flint-rich parcels, which imbue the wine with an ineffable smoky (fume) expression. A limpid lemon-gold in the glass, Blanchet’s Cuvee Silice bursts from the glass with gorgeous aromas of lime zest, grapefruit, honeysuckle, juniper, chalk, and gunflint. Showing exceptional balance on the palate, the wine expresses vibrant notes of lime juice, lemon zest, white grapefruit, freshly grated ginger, and chalky minerals. Long, juicy, and impressively energetic, Blanchet’s Cuvee Silice finishes with added suggestions of green apple skin, mint, bay leaf, quinine, and another lashing of silex terroir. This is sensational Pouilly-Fume that effortlessly balances Pouilly’s richness and intensity with the freshness and focus of a great Chavignol. Enjoy this extraordinary Pouilly-Fume now and over the coming three years with trout amandine, perch in a beurre blanc sauce, pan-roasted monkfish, clams or mussels, fresh chèvres, and asparagus in a hollandaise sauce.

2017 Arnaud Lambert, Saumur Blanc, Breze, Clos du Midi, Loire Valley, France (O) 16.99/183.49

This is “grand cru” dry Chenin for a song. Arnaud Lambert is helping to drive a revolutionary movement in the appellations of Saumur and Saumur-Champigny. Lambert’s goal is to spotlight each of his vineyard’s distinct terroirs and express their potentials through organic viticulture and precise, minimal-intervention winemaking. The Breze hill is considered one of the wine world’s two finest sites for dry Chenin Blanc. Lambert’s Clos du Midi – from a cool site near the top of the Breze hill – casts a pale straw-gold hue from the glass and classic Chenin Blanc aromas of Anjou pears, green plums, hay, and yellow limestone. Brisk on the attack, the wine presents bracingly fresh, pear-driven Chenin fruit framed by smoky limestone minerals and nervy acidity. Pleasant notes of quince and honeycomb emerge on the wine’s long pear and citrus-tinged finish followed by jolts of electric acidity and lip-coating limestone dust. Pair the wine now and over the coming three years with freshwater fish, aged chèvres, chanterelle mushrooms, and roast pheasant.

2016 Domaine Sangouard-Guyot, Macon-Villages, Clos de la Bressande, Burgundy, France (S) 14.99/161.89

Third-generation Burgundian vigneron Pierre-Emmanuel Sangouard farms twenty-five acres in the Maconnais’ most hallowed terroirs. From a superb 2.5 acre parcel in the village of Hurigny, Sangouard spotlights the Clos de la Bressande cru’s superb aspect and classic clay-limestone soil in this delicious Macon-Villages. A bright, golden color in the glass, Sangouard’s Clos de la Bressande brilliantly expresses its Maconnais origins with high-toned white Burgundy aromas of clay-limestone soil, lemon zest, and pate brisee. Crisp, lemony, and stony on the palate, the wine suffuses its juicy core of green plum and golden apple fruit with mineral undercurrents, balancing acidity, and complex notes of sweet butter and raw almonds. Vinified in stainless steel, the wine finishes long and tangy with persistent echoes of its calcareous terroir. As with all selections in Sangouard’s portfolio, this is superb, terroir-driven white Burgundy and a terrific value. It will wow as a welcome wine now and over the next three years, and perform as a lovely foil for herb-roasted chicken, trout amandine, chanterelles in a cream sauce, and light pork preparations.

2016 Philippe Ravier, Vin de Savoie, Apremont, Savoie, France (S) 11.50/124.20

Dry and refreshing, Philippe Ravier’s Apremont is simply a glorious white for year ’round enjoyment. Like the Côtes du Rhône-Villages, the Vin de Savoie A.O.P. allows certain outstanding villages to append their esteemed names to lend special emphasis to the region’s wines. Apremont is one such exemplary village in the Savoie. Fashioned exclusively from the indigenous Jacquère grape, this low alcohol refresher brings to mind crisp alpine breezes and cool, pure mountain spring water. A gleaming lemon-gold in the glass, Ravier’s Apremont presents a crisp, inviting bouquet of greengage plums, papaya, alpine herbs, and flinty minerals. On the palate, the wine follows with zesty, lip-smacking expressions of gooseberries, green apple skin, lemon balm, and limestone dust. This delightful Vin de Savoie will prove an outstanding choice as an apéritif and a natural complement to smoked trout, white-fleshed fish dishes in a beurre blanc sauce, oysters, salads, fondue, and cheeses featuring Tomme de Savoie, young Gruyère, and other semi-firm cow’s milk cheeses from the region. Enjoy now and over the coming year.

GERMANY

2014 Dr. Burklin-Wolf, Riesling, Wachenheimer, Pfalz, Germany (B) 15.99/172.69  reg. 17.99

Benefiting from biodynamic viticulture and declassification of several of the estate’s most prestigious sites, Burklin-Wolf’s Wachenheimer dry Riesling is a brilliant and classic Pfalz Riesling. The wine offers a vivid gold color and soaring aromas of white peaches, mango, chamomile, kaffir lime, and stony soil. Bone dry, the palate bristles with pineapple, nectarine, and lime fruit backed by searing acidity and a deep, smoky mineral undercurrent. Brisk and juicy, the Wachenheimer Riesling finishes long and dry, very much in the model of a grand cru Alsatian Riesling. Folks, this is an unbelievably affordable and versatile wine. Serve it by the glass, and at your table alongside vegetable, seafood, pork, and poultry preparations. A must-try selection!
- Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 90 points

Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, raves: “The 2014 is one of the best series I have tasted at this biodynamic domaine for a very long time… If I must name my favorite dry Estate Riesling of 2014, the Burklin-Wolf's has the greatest chance to be the one. All the wines are lovely, precise, fresh and so expressive and at the same time -- perfectly balanced and moderate in alcohol. You shouldn't miss the 2014 Burklin-Wolf Rieslings.

ITALY

2017 Antonio Scala, Ciro Bianco, Calabria, Italy 13.50/145.80

Calabria is the “toe” of Italy’s “boot,” a rugged region where vineyards sweep down to the beaches along the Ionian Sea. Scala’s Ciro, fashioned from the Greco Bianco grape, casts a deep lemon-gold hue alongside expressions of green pineapple, star fruit, passion fruit, and tropical flowers. Lush, clean, and zippy on the palate, Scala’s Ciro Bianco alternates waves of citrus fruits (Meyer lemon, tangerine, bitter orange) and tropical fruits (pineapple, papaya, star fruit), along with herbal suggestions of bay leaf and dried oregano. Zesty, minerally, and distinctive, the wine finishes long and refreshing with reprises of bitter orange peel and tangerine. Enjoy this fascinating and unique Southern Italian wonder this summer, served with seafood pasta dishes with white sauces, grilled octopus, roast pork, swordfish, albacore tuna, and branzino.

2016 Villa Russiz, Venezia Giulia IGT, Les Enfants, Bianco, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy (S) 16.99/183.49

Villa Russiz, one of the Collio’s benchmark estates, issues this sensational northeastern Italian bianco from a blend of Pinot Grigio (50%), Pinot Bianco (25%), Ribolla Gialla (20%), and Sauvignon Blanc. A brilliant straw gold color in the bowl, Villa Russiz Les Enfants unfurls with cool, mineral-driven aromas of green pears, Golden Delicious apples, gardenia blossoms, and limestone. The wine is fresh and bristling with energy on the palate, layering suggestions of white peaches, pear, and herbs, all driven by a pulsing mineral undercurrent. Clean and impressively persistent, the wine finishes cool and bracing with echoes of peach and pear fruit complicated by fresh herbs and crushed limestone minerality. Pair now and over the coming two years with lighter fare such as sauteed Tuscan kale, shellfish, sushi and sashimi, halibut, pan-roasted black cod, light poultry dishes, and grilled squashes. Gorgeous wine!

2017 Marchetti, Tenuta del Cavaliere, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore, Marches, Italy 15.99/172.69

Marchetti’s incredibly expressive Verdicchio Classico Superiore opens with deep impressions of sweet snap peas, apricots, fruitwood smoke, tarragon, and freshly ground white pepper. On the palate, the wine conveys an impressively concentrated kernel of pear skin, yellow plum, and star fruit backed by brisk acidity, a smoky mineral undercurrent, and suggestions of oolong tea, candied ginger, and jasmine. Full bodied and penetrating, yet balanced and elegant, Marchetti’s powerful Verdicchio begs for rich vegetarian recipes and steak-type fish dishes. Pair it now and over the coming five years with hearty fare that calls for a bold white wine. Think swordfish, fresh albacore tuna, rabbit, zucchini gratin, white pizzas, and pastas dressed with olive oil, garlic, and summer vegetables.

SPAIN

2017 Txakoli Primo, Zarautz, Basque Country, Spain 10.50/113.40

Txakoli Primo is located in the Salbide district of Zarautz, one of the most celebrated areas of Txakoli culture and production. Txakoli Primo’s 100% Hondarrabi Zuri casts a pale green-glinted lemon-gold from the glass followed by classic Txakoli nuances of lemon zest, green apple, honeysuckle, and wet stones. Taut, crisp, and bristling with salty minerality, the Txakoli Primo enlivens the palate with suggestions of key lime juice, white grapefruit, olive brine, and quinine. The wine finishes fresh, light, and saline with layers of citrus fruit, Williams pear, quinine, saline minerals, and ginger. An exceptionally light, crisp, and refreshing Txakoli – and an excellent value for its denominación – this is a superb choice for partnering with acidic vegetables, grilled asparagus, fresh and steamed shellfish, light squid tapas, seafood paellas, ceviches, and delicate poached white-fleshed fish dishes.

 

ROSE WINES

AUSTRIA

2017 Weingut Stift Gœttweig, Rose, Messwein, Niederösterreich, Austria (S) 18.99/205.09

The Stift Gœttweig is a Benedictine monastery founded in 1083 and perched 450 meters above sea level on the southern banks of the Danube. This is the estate’s rose Messwein (altar wine) produced only with the blessing of the bishop and crafted specifically to be pure, light and drinkable. Stift Gœttweig’s pale salmon-colored Pinot Noir rose bursts out of the glass with high-toned aromas of Rainier cherries, white currants, pink rose petals, cinnamon, and smoky soil. On the palate, the Messwein rose is crisp and bracing, with hints of wild strawberries brightened by juicy acidity and a persistent mineral underpinning. The wine’s core of crunchy berry fruit reemerges on its long, clean, and zesty finish. This is sensational Pinot Noir rose, and, at a lithe 11.5% alcohol, a superb choice for warm summer evenings. Enjoy it now and over the coming two years by itself or with lentil soups, light salmon preparations, roast chicken, sushi, sashimi, and mild Asian cuisines.

SPAIN

2017 Arregi, Getariako Txakolina, Rosado, Basque Country, Spain 15.99/172.69

Arregi, Portland’s first and most beloved Txakoli, has been a smashing success in these pages for over two decades. This is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to offer Arregi’s rosado, a brilliant, distinctive wine that immediately finds itself in our Rose Hall of Fame. Hailing from the easternmost outpost of Txakoli called Getariako Txakolina, Arregi’s rosado casts a limpid, pale orange-tinged salmon color and beautiful aromas of crushed cranberries, pink peppercorns, and sea breeze. The rosado’s bright and zesty palate is fresh and still sporting an appetizing dose of dissolved CO-2, featuring expressions of green strawberries, watermelon rind, gooseberries, and salty minerals. Brisk and saline on the finish, the rosado adds notes of tart pink grapefruit, vine smoke, and bitter herbs. Arregi’s Txakoli is a perfect fit for enjoying by itself on hot summer days or as a lovely foil for summer market vegetables, sushi, sashimi, grilled chicken and seafood, vegetable, and bean pintxos. Enjoy this beauty all summer long and into the fall to capture its youthful brightness and vigor. Fabulous rosado!
