Château Le Bergey Bordeaux

France

Certified Demeter Biodynamic merlot, cab sauv and cab franc from Right Bank Bordeaux. This wine over delivers for the price. A very classic, very pure expression of clay and gravel. Basically, it's made by a retired couple from Paris who, if they had a "wine" name, could sell this for four times the price. Just flat out good Bordeaux.

Domaine Rolet Arbois Poulsard Vieilles Vignes

France

Poulsard is an indigenous, a very thin-skinned grape that makes very light-colored wine which could fool you into believing that there won’t be any tannins, but they are sneaky, with a delayed and building presentation. Redcurrant and cherry, with a hint of hibiscus on the nose. Light and precise, with cherry complemented by floral and spice flavors. Delightful and lively. Pair this with poultry or pork and avoid fish.

$23.99

France

A Rhône field-blend, mainly Grenache with Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan present as well. It offers up a classic Provencal nose of dark cherry, raspberry, pepper and herb that leads into a fresh and medium-bodied palate.
