Staff Pick Notes

Dear Jean Paul Brun, My crush on your wines gets bigger each time I try a new one. While I have enjoyed many of your reds & love your rosé, I was even more pleased to discover that this wine is in fact the first one you ever made! I must admit, Chardonnay is not my go-to white grape, but the way you make it compels me to drink it with abandon. Thank you for making such a lovely & refreshing expression - full of citrus, magnolia blossoms & white peaches. It will frequently be sitting on my dinner table from here until there is no more available. And what a value to boot. I applaud you sir. Keep up the good work! Love,

- BLR

Beaujolais-Villages is a step up. Compared to basic Beaujolais, the rules for Beaujolais-Villages wines are more strict. Villages wine is produced in far smaller quantities. Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
