2018 Domaine Cédric Bardin Poully-sur-Loire
Loire Valley, France
Nice pale yellow crystalline color with green hints. Clean and rather complex floral nose on jasmine, lily, orange blossom, and apples and yellow lemon notes. Then keeps opening aromatically on fine spices, caramel, almond and appealing pistachio notes. Very clean, fresh and delicate palate, with floral and pistachio notes and more citrusy length. 100% Chasselas.

Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

2018 Domaine Gouron Chinon Rosé 
Loire Valley, France
100% Cabernet Franc
Bright, fresh nose with raspberries, strawberries and candied fruit. Great minerality, and a rather powerful palate dominated by fruit and soft spices. Aromatic with a lengthy finish. Super!

Sale Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case

2018 Clos Saint Fiacre Orleans Rosé 
Loire Valley, France
This is a  blend of 70% Pinot Meunier and 30% Pinot Gris from the leading producer in the up and coming Orleans appelation of  the Loire Valley. This rosé shows a beatiful complexity with light red fruit and a floral nose, and a bright acidity on the palate.

Regular Price $29.99 per bottle, $359.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

2017 Famille Duveau Saumur Champigny
Loire Valley, France
This Cabernet Franc shows a rather round and silky nose with ripe dark fruits notes. Fresh palate with very ripe berries and warm fruit notes, with the perfect racy touch and earthy expression, remaining mellow and long. Young, but already so elegant, balanced and showing how 2017 has been limited in yields and generous aromatically. This wine is fantastic and one of the best values at this price!

Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case
