Burgundy Northern Satellites: Irancy & Saint-Bris

Irancy and for that matter, Saint-Bris, are like satellite appéllations in a stationary orbit around Chablis. It takes little more than 10 or 15 minutes to drive from the centre of Chablis to either village, yet few make the journey or endeavor to taste the wines. But as prices in the Côte d’Or become increasingly prohibitive, alternatives such as Irancy and Saint-Bris become increasingly worth investigating.

2017 Mas de la Dame Rosé du Mas Les Baux de Provence ($18.00) 90

2017 Mas de la Dame Rosé du Mas Les Baux de Provence, 90 points

Ripe blood orange, red berry and lavender are laced throughout this concentrated yet graceful Provencal Rosé. The 2017 is a hefty wine, but its core of minerality adds lift and drive to a long, silky finish that features an exotic hint of juicy pit fruits. (JR)


Cellar Favorites

Chateau darche 1906

1906 Château d’Arche Crème de Tête

It seems difficult to believe now given the current state of the market, but Sauternes was the most sought-after and most expensive Bordeaux at the turn of the 20th century. This Cellar Favorite hails from that era, testament to the greatness and unerring longevity of Sauternes... and it does not have to begin with the 25th letter of the alphabet.
