2017 Meursault Ballot-Minot

"In 2001, Charles Ballot took the helm of his family's already reputable domaine, and began to make his mark by working the soils, reducing yields, moving to more natural farming methods, buying a triage table and updatng the press. Today, the estate is comprised of 10ha of vineyards, 7 of which are in Meursault proper. The relative vine age is old: Perrières (40+), Genevrières (70+), Narvaux (45-60), etc. Charles' wines tend toward the so-called “Roulot-school” of Meursault, more tensile and racy, as opposed to the fatter, honeyed and nutty style that dominated the landscape 20-30 years ago." --importer Polaner Selections

2017 Montlouis "Choisilles" Francois Chidaine

from the importer: "les Choisilles is a cuvée, usually blended from old vines in the vineyards of Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos au Renard. It’s named after a type of black flint called (you guessed it) choisille. Les Choisilles is a concentrated, focused dry wine that often needs several years to develop."

2017 Vouvray Sec "Compte Marc" Julien Vedel

Julien Vedel is second-in-command to Phillipe Foreau of Domaine du Clos Naudin. This, his personal micro-domain of .2 hectares produces only 2 barrels per year from 90-year-old vines grown in a choicest section of Vouvray. Horse-ploughed, vinified with no malo in 50% new / 50% 10-year-old barrels.

2018 Vezelay "Chatelaine" Domaine de la Cadette

"In the village of Saint-Père, along a little creek to the southeast of Vézelay in Burgundy, a quiet, peaceful revolution is taking place. This part of Burgundy has been producing wines for centuries, but estate bottling still represents a relatively recent phenomenon here. In fact, when Jean and Catherine Montanet planted their first vineyards in 1987, the fruit was destined for vinification in their very own cave coopérative, which saw its first vintage bottled in 1990. As general manager of the business, Jean quickly found his feet as a capable vigneron, counseled by coworkers such as the brilliant Bernard Raveneau, who would later introduce Jean to Kermit. By 1997, the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d’Origines) had awarded Vézelay its own AOC—a timely decision that lends more credibility to the noble work of the Montanets. They began farming organically in 1999, a particularly bold decision given the physical and financial effort required to do so in an area where most wine is sold in bulk. Unable to fully express themselves as vignerons at the coop and determined to continue working organically, the Montanets finally split off and founded their own label, Domaine de la Cadette, taking their vineyards with them." --importer Kermit Lynch
