Brovia’s 2014 ‘Unio’: A Singular Release from One of Barolo’s Greats
Today we are thrilled to offer something truly special from one of our most highly anticipated and sought after annual releases. Brovia make quite simply some of the best old school Barolo that it is possible to get, from extraordinary vineyards and the traditional, simple methods of wild yeast fermentation, maceration, and slow maturation in big old oak. The results are wines of brilliant purity, elegance, length, precision, and ageworthiness. They are everything you could look for in a Barolo, as long as...Learn more

Believe the Hype: 93 & 94 pt. Piemontese Gems that Overdeliver
Dolcetto occupies a strange space in world of wine. At once, it is often touted as one of the wine world’s great values, as well as an also-ran, second- or third-thought to its much more noble cousins Nebbiolo and Barbera. There are a battery of reasons for this, many of which have to do with the fact that Dolcetto is rarely grown in terroir that is appropriate for Dolcetto. Moreover, for most serious Barolo is by far the most important of their production and few focus on Dolcetto with any serious interest...Learn more

Falling for Falanghina - Brilliantly Mineral, Decidedly Refreshing
After consulting the Gordon’s archives (located in a vast underground warehouse beneath Main Street) we could not locate a single record of us featuring a Falanghina in our Daily Flash program … ever. So now a moment for the history books, because today, for the first time in human history, Gordon’s is featuring a Falanghina. Fattoria La Rivolta’s exceptional expression of the grape confidently puts forth a series of flavors, thirst quenching vignettes of pear and apple, told with focus and poise.Oh, it just won the...Learn more

SELL OUT ALERT!!! Dangerously Drinkable: France’s Most Refreshing Chenin Returns - 2017 Pascal Janvier’s Jasnières
Every time I go on the Kermit Lynch trip, we traipse through some rather august cellars: Clape, Allemand, Raveneau, Roulot, Chevillon, to name just a few. However, one wine more than every other remains firmly stamped on my mind as most delicious - Pascal Janvier’s Jasnières. With bright Chenin fruits, the merest hint of sweetness and heroic acidity, Janvier’s Jasnières are impossible to resist for refreshment or all manner of food pairings. But look who I’m talking to - we sell out of these every year. Thankfully, there’s a new...Learn more

Can’t Get Enough: 2017 Falkenstein
2017 Falkenstein just hit the shores and I have to be lightening quick to get this out before anyone else grabs it. The Mosel recorded its earliest and smallest harvest in 50 years for 2017 but while yields were small, the stuff that remains is superb. More serious in feeling and denser in texture than the winsome and lyrical 2016’s, we’re very excited to see what the best producers are going to do here. Especially Falkenstein. Falkenstein, the tiny boutique winery based in the Saar, was a runaway success last year. Thanks to crazy high press and crazy low prices (and a relentless push on our part) we sold more...Learn more

Riesling’s Gold Cup: Terry Theise 2017 Pre-arrival
Germany is on a roll. The 2017 vintage, the third of a string of successes, shows more richness and depth than the winsome and charming 2016’s. It is a vintage of intensity and drama, particularly for the higher end bottlings. “If 2016 is a well-told joke, 2017 is a magnificently constructed argument…if you’re a serious kind of person (and a taster who appreciates no-nonsense wines) you’ll be richly pleased by these 2017s” reports Terry Theise. “It is a serious tasting vintage, by no means unfriendly, but levity does not obtrude upon it. There are certainly some charming wines, and there are loads of...Learn more

The River King: 2017 Huet Pre-arrival
They’re like old friends at this point: Lemon, honey, wax, flowers, chamomile … the joys of Domaine Huet are singular and represent the best of Vouvray. Whether dry or nobly sweet, at their best they can be the most sublime wines of France; at their worst, youthful charmers opened far too young that tantalize in their future promise you have just now cut so horribly short. Regarding this remarkable producer, each year we are always blunt in our advice: Buy these. Buy everything that you can. PERIOD. From early reports 2017 looks very promising. “2017 has ended up being an exceptionally good...Learn more
