  1. Why Pay $60? Pay 1/3 of That with This Grand Cru-Adjacent Chablis Deal from Malandes

    To all Best Winers, On Monday’s Grand Veneur Champauvins offer we talked a little about location and how it relates to wine. How random borders (rocks, trees, etc.) can make all the difference between $20 and $50 a bottle. You have to draw the line somewhere, right? Even if it may not make sense. Speaking of not making sense, take...

  4. A Real Best Wines Deal: 50% Off a Seriously Old Vine Zin!

    To all Best Winers, What’s there not to love about old-vine Zinfandel? It’s ripe, rambunctious, juicy, pleasure-giving and makes an amazing house red when you don’t feel like bringing out those ‘big gun’ Cabs or Pinot Noirs. It’s also what we call ‘liquid history’, seen as many of California’s oldest, most historic vineyards are indeed planted to Zinfandel. Which brings...
  5. Chile's Cutting Edge: Superb $15, 91pt Cab from Clos des Fous!

    To all Best Winers, Have you been ignoring Chilean wine? If you have, that may have to stop. Actually, I know it will have to stop. For all the talk about California vintners ‘pursuing balance’ and Italian guys making orange wines in amphorae, we as a wine-drinking and selling community have been ignoring the one place with some of the...

  7. Beaucastel's Neighbor at 1/4 the Price! Chateauneuf-adjacent Value from Grand Veneur

    To all Best Winers, “Domaine Grand Veneur’s Les Champauvins stretches on 34 ha classified in Côtes du Rhône. The plots are located in the northern border of Châteauneuf du Pape, exactly 3 meters outside the appellation.  A small lane of rocks going through the rocky plateau has been decided to be the AOC limit in 1936.” – From Alain Jaume’s...

  10. "Incredibly Rich" 94pt Mas Donis 2012, just $12.98!

    To all Best Winers, It’s back…again! But the ante has been upped, the scores have been raised, this is getting real serious. I haven’t even tasted the wine yet. I’m not going to lie. I won’t get the chance. This stuff will be gone before I get the corkscrew in the bottle. We sold a TON of the 2010 Mas...
