Hot New Rhône Wines

Arriving Friday


Raymond Usseglio & Fils

Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils was founded in 1948. In the intervening decades the estate has grown into one of the most respected in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Today the family farms its 60 acres biodynamically, which ensures a healthy crop of grapes and a close relationship between grower and vine. This devoted attention in the vineyard carries through to the winery—these are stunning bottles and among the best each year in the Southern Rhône.

For those lacking in cellar space, Usseglio’s Cuvée Girard is a Châteauneuf that doesn’t require years of patience to be enjoyed.

A Rare Trove of Library Dagueneau

Straight from the Importer’s Cellar

 
Dagueneau makes some of the iconic wines of France. The most collectible, profound bottlings from Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre, they’re Sauvignon Blanc as it’s rarely presented—especially these bottles, which are perfectly aged from the cellar of the Oregon importer of the wines.

Chablis’ Greatest Exponent?

Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin


“People often cite Domaines Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat as the two greatest exponents of Chablis, however, I would like to add a third – Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin. Over the last five or six years, Benoît Droin has really ratcheted up the quality. I cannot exaggerate how often Droin’s wines end up the best of the flight during the annual “Burgfest” blind tastings.
