2018 Chateau Ducasse Blanc
Bordeaux, France

This beautiful, aromatic white Bordeaux is a blend of Semillon with Sauvignon Blanc and a small percentage of Muscadelle that brings a lot of fruit and spice to the table.  Add it all up and you have a beautifully balanced wine with plenty of bright, crisp fruit and minerality to pair with fish, shellfish and poultry.
Regular Price $17.99 per bottle, $215.88 per case
Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case

2018 Joseph Drouhin "Les Crays" Macon-Lugny
Burgundy, France
A rare, single-vineyard wine, “Les Crays” has a very charming bouquet with fresh citrus fruit, attractive scents of honeysuckle and nectarine emerging with time. The palate is well-balanced with subtle honey notes on the entry and this segues into a lovely, rounded, apricot and peach-tinged middle and finish that displays volume and great breeding. This is a very well-crafted Macon packed full of flavor.
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case
Sale Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case

2018 Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé 
Coteaux dAix en Provence, France
"The terrific (and fairly priced) 2018 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose stood out among the 139 rosés I tasted blind during my late February trip to Provence. It combines hints of cantaloup with cassis in a medium-bodied, silky-textured wine that shows just a hint of leafiness on the finish. The blend is 40% Grenache, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, and 5% Rolle." 90 points Wine Advocate

NV Patrick Bottex "La Cueille" Bugey-Cerdon Rosé
Bugey, France

"This cuvee may qualify as the 'wine bargain of the year.' A Champagne-like sparkling rose from the largely forgotten area of Bugey, this low alcohol (8%) offering is made from 90% Gamay and 10% Poulsard (an indigenous grape of the region)."

2017 Jeff Carrel "Les Darons" Red Blend
Languedoc, France

“The 2017 Languedoc Les Darons is made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Carignan that’s mostly from older vines in the Minervois...  It’s deep purple (almost inky) and offers a sensational perfume of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, ground pepper, and earth. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and long, it shows the purity and sexiness of the 2017 vintage and is going to be a killer value.”

2016 Domaine Giacometti "Cru des Agriate" Patrimonio Rouge
Corsica, France

From the dry, scrub-covered landscape of the island of Corsica, this wine exudes a heady bouquet of garrigue, flowers, and smoky cherry fruit. It's like a Chianti went on a Mediterranean sailing trip and returned with a beard and a tan! For such a dry, warm climate, this wine shows a great freshness and minerality, with hints of the mint, laurel, and myrtles that dot the Corsican landscape. A unique wine not to be missed!
