Avinyo, Cava, Brut Rose, Spain ~ $24.99
Produced by the Esteve Nadal family in the heart of the Penedès region of Barcelona. 
The patriarch, Joan Esteve, planted vines of Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macabeo 50 years ago, today, his two sons and daughter carry on the tradition of Avinyó. F 
rom the Pinot Noir plantings in the La Fassina vineyard comes the rosé project: Cava Avinyó Rosado Reserva, a t 
raditional Catalan sparkling wine made using the méthode tradionnelle. This cava is 100% free run Pinot Noir juice, aged 18 months before being disgorged. This salmon pink bubbly has notes of brioche and wild strawberries...summer in a bottle!
 
2012 Domaine Guillot~Broux "Les Molieres", Burgundy, France ~ $24.99
 2012s are generally very rich, generous, full-bodied wines with a lot of dry extract, very much reflective of tiny yields and small grapes, with some growers considering their 2012s to be classic white Burgundies. The Molières are located in the commune of Grevilly , and the uniqueness of the Molières is that it was planted in 1936 with old muscaté chardonnay, old cross of Chardonnay and Muscat de rivesaltes with small grains. It is a wine always aromatic because of the influence of the Muscat and very saline and mineral because of the extremely calcareous soil. Certified organic since 1991, they use natural methods of fighting parasites, green manure, organic fertilisers, and mineral sprays with stable active molecules that leave no residues in the wines. This white has
 complex, ripe fruit notes but dominated by stone fruit. There is a sense of vibrancy throughout, while layers of fruit keep building in the mouth. Sunday luncheon, crab ravioli with a tarragon buerre blanc, and a sip or two of this...oui oui!
 
 
2016 Schoenheitz, Riesling Herrenreben, Alsace, France ~ $25.99
 In the 15th century, these vines were already famous as the property of the noblemen of Ribeaupierre. Their most mature vines of Riesling grow here, producing a particularly racy Riesling thanks to the granite soil, which in combination with the high minerality and elevation, produces this complex Riesling. An intense nose of citrus, with floral nuances, followed by  palate full of fruit and elegant acidity. 
 
 
2014 Arnoux, Chorey~Les~Beaune, "Les Beaumonts", Burgundy, France ~ $39.99
This 20-hectare family domaine is run by Arnaud Machard de Gramont and his two sons, Alban and Alexis. Arnaud made his first vintage in 1963 and haven't stopped since. His wines reek of tradition, wines made with muscle, to keep for the future. Fining is rare and only the lightest filtration is considered. The cellars are situated in Prissey, a hamlet neighboring Nuits-Saint-Georges. 
 
 
The wines of this Domaine are the perfect example of what Burgundy wines should be. Here, the emphasis is placed more on the fruit character of the wine than on its weight. As a result, the reds always have a delightful Pinot Noir bouquet that is not dominated by the alcohol. 
  
  
A delicious Chorey-les-Beaune that is full of cherry and spice with some herbal undercurrants. 
 
2006 Anciano, Gran Reserva, Tempranillo,
Spain ~ $17.99
This excellent wine embodies everything that the connoisseur of elegant, traditional Spanish wine loves. Made in the winery of Bodegas Navalon in the small DO Valdepeñas, in the heart of Spain, the Bodega has been the passion of the same local family for several generations, and specializes in producing classic, oak-aged Spanish red wines that are only released when they have reached the peak of perfection.  
Hand picked, perfectly ripe Tempranillo grapes were harvested from rocky vineyards.
Broad and silky smooth with lively cherry and plum fruit flavors, laced with gentle vanilla notes, this is medium bodied and balanced with soft tannins on the finish. An 
 obvious pairing for tapas, it was good with the pork tacos I had a few nights ago.
 
2017 Teutonic, Willamette Valley, Oregon ~ $25.99
This white wine is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Muller Thurgau and 5% Chasselas. It's ever-so-slightly pink in color with beautiful aromatics from the Muller and Chassealas~candied fruit, lemon/lime zest and bright citrus notes. Then, coming from the Pinot Noir, you get earthy-funky, cheese flavors blending beautifully with the other side. Basically this wine gives you the best of both worlds.
