2020 Pierre Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet V.V.
This Chassagne is known for producing full-bodied, deep white wines laden with complexity, structure and like most of Pierre’s wines, leans on the reductive side of things. If you like hints of smoke and flint, this is the White Burgundy producer for you!

2021 Wonderland Project ‘White Queen’ Sonoma Chardonnay

2015 Clementin de Pape Clement Pessac-Léognan

Sustainable farming practices (certified HVE – the highest environmental certification in France)

Sustainable farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered.
2020 Ciro Picariello Fiano d’Irpinia

Sustainable farming practices and only 120 cases produced annually.
2019 Edaphos Steel Plow Vineyard Grenache
This winery is one of Margaux’s favorite recent finds because they are producing unique, small-lot, delicious wines that incorporate new and exciting approaches to winemaking.

2020 Domaine Rougeot ‘Les Grandes Gouttes’ Côte D’Or Bourgogne Blanc
We call this “Petit Puligny.” While the vineyard sits only 500 meters from the Meursault-Charmes premier cru vineyard, the wine has a lighter, racier profile and a beautiful minerality that makes it taste more reminiscent of Puligny-Montrachet than Meursault. The production level is tiny, so we are extremely excited to be able to offer this wine exclusively to our Club Argaux members.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined and only 100 cases produced.
2021 Cantine Carlo Mazzella Ischia Biancolella
Sancerre, Gruner Veltliner, Vermentino lovers – This one’s for you. Grown on the volcanic island of Ischia, this wine quite literally tastes like the azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal intervention winemaking.
2020 Domaine Rougeot Père et Fils Saint-Romain ‘La Combe Bazin’

Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, and vegan-friendly!
2020 Château de Montfrin Cotes du Rhone ‘A La Reverie’ Rouge
“A la reverie” means “in a dream state,” which is the perfect way to describe how we felt the first time we tried this wine with Jean-René. Sure he charmed us with truffle pasta, but the the dreamiest thing about this wine is its ability to hold its own next to strong dishes without feeling heavy. The Syrah gives it oomph while the Grenache weaves it all together with a soft, silky ribbon.
Certified organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, and only 1,400 cases produced.
2021 Domaine de Oliveira Lecestre Petit Chablis (half-bottle)

Sustainable farming practices (Lutte Raisonnée), native yeast fermentation, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to reflect the perfect typicity of Chablis.
2020 COS Nero di Lupo Terre Siciliane
We can’t get enough of Island wine right now and this is the perfect chillable red for summer. Think Pinot Noir meets Syrah. It’s super bright, fresh, and has a kick of spice on the finish that makes it awesome with grilled seafood or poultry alike.

2019 Domaine Alain Burguet Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Champeaux’ Premier Cru

Biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 75 cases produced.
