Renegade Wines 3 X 3 = 9 New Arrivals Newsletter


It's Wednesday night and we have a new line up for you.
A Hollywood Squares, if you will, of superb wines.
Although Frank Sinatra was never on the game show, Frank Sinatra Jr was.
We begin with 'Fly Me To The Moon' Pinot Blanc.

2012 Gosset Champagne Brut Grand Millesime
(France, Champagne)
This is a dynamite bottle of bubbles from the epic 2012 vintage. Our tasting notes included adjetives such as elegant, pure, fresh, precision + texture, dynamic, age-worthy, gorgeous, to name a few. We are very impressed with this one.

2020 Domaines Ott Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle (France, Cotes de Provence)

You've been waiting for this one since March. It's finally back in stock.
Thank you for your patience.

2019 Louis Michel Chablis
Grand Cru Les Clos
(France, Burgundy, Chablis)
From the Burghound:
"The super-sleek, intense and overtly mineral-driven big-bodied flavors possess the refinement of the Vaudesir and the power of the Grenouilles while exhibiting the same excellent length as well as fine depth."
In other words this is one outstanding bottle of Chardonnay.
We enoyed this with grilled oysters.

2020 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Blanc
Cuvee de la Reine des Bois
(France, Southern Rhone, Lirac)
Mordoree's white wine is a curious blend of Grenache Blanc 35%, Clairette 25%, Viognier 10%, Roussanne 15%,
Marsanne 10%, and Picpoul 5%.
And wow does it work. First impressions: peach, apricot, pear, violet. There's a honeyed minerality at the core combined with a subtle richness and beautifully integrated acidity followed by a great, salty, lip-smacking finish.
Pairs well with fish, shellfish and Comte cheese. Also great as an aperitif.

2020 Kysela Picpoul de Pinet (France, Languedoc, Picpoul de Pinet)
Known as "the Muscadet of the South" in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albarino is to northwest Spain...the default wine for fresh shellfish & seafood.
Terrific value here.


2018 Alain Voge Cotes du Rhone Les Peyrouses
(France, Northern Rhone, Cotes du Rhone)
Why is this Cotes du Rhone different than other Cotes du Rhone? A few reasons. It is 100% Syrah and in the Northern Rhone. Super rare. Vines are grown in Cornas and Saint-Peray.
Super bright red fruit with oodles of raspberry coulis, dark plum, black raspberry, and herbs de Provence spice all over. Well rounded, with supple tannins and nice pepper notes on the finish.

2020 François Chidaine Gamay
(France, Loire Valley, Touraine)
Remember back about a year when we first introduced you to this electrifying Gamay from the Loire Valley. It was an instant hit and sold like crazy until alas, it was no more. Fast forward to today and the new vintage has arrived! We tried not to compared it to the 2019 wine but couldn’t help ourselves. Out of the gate it’s juicy, crunchy, and intoxicating. Scrumptious boysenberry meets raspberry with bright acidity and well-structured tannins. This is a wine that drinks way above its price.

2013 Umathum St. Laurent Vom Stein
(Austria, Burgenland, Neusiedlersee)
We’ve never heard of a bottle of St. Laurent receive such outrageous press (96 Points all around thank you). But then we had never tried such a stunning example before. A bit of Autumnal funk on the nose along with red and dark berry, oolong tea, and something mysteriously exotic. There’s an instant savoriness to the wine with black pepper notes, boysenberry + additional yet to be named fabulous berry notes. The wine is ever-changing in the glass and as the finish concludes in a triumphant crescendo one might be reminded of a certain poem by Rainer Maria Rilke:
"...The summer was immense. Lay your shadow on the sundials and let loose the wind in the fields. Bid the last fruits to be full; give them another two more southerly days, press them to ripeness, and chase the last sweetness into the heavy wine."

2013 Oddero Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda
(Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo)
Just released after being held at the winery these past eight years.
This is textbook Barolo; rose, leather, red berry. Red cherry, pomegranate, licorice, exotic spices. Drinking this is a like a dream that brings you back to your most memorable days in Italy.
Not to be missed.
