Domaine du Vissoux

The Forefront of Beaujolais


Gamay’s explosion in popularity over the past decade has resulted in an excess of fantastic options from Beaujolais and beyond.  However there is probably no producer anywhere in the world, let alone Gamay’s spiritual home, offering better value than Domaine Vissoux.  The estate has been one of the region’s visionary producers ever since Pierre Chermette took over for his parents in 1982.  During his nearly four decades at the helm, Vissoux has remained at the forefront of Beaujolais’ quality movement.

2017 Muller Catoir Subscriber Special

Every wine region in the world has one or two estates that immediately come to mind when you hear the name of the region: Chateau Margaux in Margaux, Romanee-Conti in Vosne-Romanee, and Donnhoff in the Nahe. Muller-Catoir occupies that space in the Pfalz region of Germany.

The Pfalz region focused on powerful, dry wines long before it was fashionable and the wines we’re highlighting today are some of the best values in the world for breathtakingly mineral wines.

“There Has Simply Never Been

a Better Time for Oregon Pinot Fans”


Josh Raynolds Reviews New Oregon Releases


“Oregon’s unprecedented run of outstanding vintages which began in 2014, has been extended yet again with 2018. In fact, you have to go all the way back to 2011 and 2007 to find years that were truly challenging, and both of those vintages actually produced a large number of outstanding wines.

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve


Charles Heidsieck is one of the great, historic houses of Champagne, but because of their small size they tend to be overlooked.  They make wines that are notable for their richness and texture, incorporating long aging on the lees and significant amounts (40+%) of older (reserve) wines in their NV blends.  Based on the quality in the bottle and the age required to get there, you’d expect these wines to be 25-40% more expensive than they are.  Their Brut Reserve is one of the best entry level wines from a great house in Champagne, especially if you love wines with a classic, toasty feel to them.
