1. 2014 Domaine Ricard Touraine Blanc “Le Petiot” (Loire Valley, France) – Vincent Ricard is making some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in France’s Touraine region. With exotic aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, herbs, flowers and mineral along with bracing acidity, it’s a perfect Thanksgiving wine. The dry and tart profile of the wine will cut through the fat of the meal like a sharp knife through butter.
Tasting Price: $15.29/bottle | $14.44 in mixed 6-packs | $13.59 in mixed cases
2. 2013 Daniel Landi Las Uvas de la Ira (Mentrida, Spain) – Daniel Landi is one of the most talked about producers in Spain at the moment. His specialty is Garnacha (aka Grenache) from sites scattered throughout Mentrida, just east of Madrid. This one tastes like a hypothetical cross of Cru Beaujolais, Burgundy, and elegant Chateauneuf. With lovely, earth and floral infused red fruit and plenty of lift and acidity, it behaves a bit like Pinot Noir. We know that sounds crazy, but we’re sticking to our guns on this one!
Tasting Price: $28.79/bottle | $27.19 in mixed 6-packs | $25.59 in mixed cases
3. 2012 Georges Descombes Morgon Vieilles Vignes (Beaujolais, France) – We can pretty much guarantee you that if we poured this for you blindfolded, you would not guess Beaujolais. Georges Descombes makes wines in the fashion and tradition of Kermit Lynch’s Gang of Four producers. He was highly inspired by the wines of Marcel Lapierre, and this is Georges’ top bottling. Tasting somewhat like a cross between Red Burgundy and Northern Rhone Syrah, it just doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to Beaujolais.
