Bugey, Frank Peillot, "Montagnieu," Brut NV, Savoie...20
Super old school sparkling wine method from way-the-hell-out-there-France.
A blend of Altesse, Mondeuse, and Chardonnay.
Champagne, Pierre Gerbais, Rose de Saignee, Brut Nature NV...72
Rising rock star winemaker from the village of Celles-sur-Ource in the South of Champagne.
Only 1,000 bottles produced.
Aligoté, Guilhem et Jean Goisot, Bourgogne 2018...18
One of Burgundy’s greatest values (Domainie Goisot) from the region’s unsung hero (Aligoté).
Melon de Bourgogne, Domaine de la Pepiére, "Gorges," Muscadet-Sévre-et-Maine, France 2015...26
One of the blue chip producers of Oyster’s best friend. We love a touch of bottle age on our Muscadet.
Marsanne/Ugni Blanc/Bourboulenc, Clos Sainte Magdeleine, Cassis 2018...40
Beautiful Mediterranean blend from the tiny fishing village in the very south of sun-kissed Provence.
Ditch the Provençal rosé (just for a minute) & gain some street cred with this bottle.
Vermentinu, Jean-Charles Abbatucci, "Cuvée Faustine," Corsica 2018...45
100% Vermentino (the Corsican’s drop the “o” for the “u”) from the Island of Beauty where the cultures of Italy & France combine to create some of the most exciting wines in the world today. Jean-Charles is one of the godfather’s of fine wine AND biodynamic farming on the island.
Cider, Cidrerie du Vulcain, "Poir," Fribourg, Switzerland 2015...36
It’s not French…it’s not wine…but it feels like a glass of natural French fizz. How do you like ‘dem apples (re: pears)? But seriously, possibly the best cider maker in the world.
Mourvedré, Domaine de Terrebrune, "Terre d'Ombre," Vin de Pays du Mont Caume 2017...20
Provence, one of the oldest winegrowing regions in France, is best known for their beautiful rosé wines. But, don’t sleep on their classic rouge wines from the appellation of Bandol, made from Mourvedré. Grapes are sourced from this legendary domaine’s youngest vines. While their Bandol-classified wines can age 30+ years, drink this up now, with a nice chill on it and transport yourself to the South of France.
Niellucciu, Yves Leccia, "E Croce," Patrimonio 2015
“The Rolls Royce of Corscian Wines” – importer, Kermit Lynch. Yves and Sandrine Leccia are some of the most important winemakers on the Île de Beauté. Killer vintage. Niellucciu is the Corsican synonym for Sangiovese and this bottle can go rounds with the best that Tuscany offers from Chianti Classico or Brunello di Montalcino.
Gamay, Rémi and Laurence Dufaitre, Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau 2019...18
Forget what you know about Beaujolais Nouveau or Georges Duboeuf, the massive company that made this style of wine so popular in the U.S. This is real Beaujolais Nouveau. The same joie de vivre, the same chuggable light red, the same jovial Gamay grape…just done the right way…Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!
Petit Rouge, Diego Curtaz, Torrette, Valle d'Aosta 2017...33
Even though this wine hails from Italy, it sounds super French, so we’re going with it. An esoteric appellation that blends Petit Rouge with a small Gamay cameo. Light, crunchy, fresh-to-death. Perfect summer red.
Trousseau, Arnot-Roberts, North Coast 2018...36
Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts, two friends who grew up in Napa, started this winery in 2001. Since then, the they have become some of the most prominent (and humble) faces of the “New California” movement. Their wines ranges from experimental to crazy classic. Trousseau is indigenous to Eastern France but CA growers are seeing crazy potential in cooler pockets from the North Coast all the way to Santa Barbara County.
