2009 baumard savennieres White, Loire $24.99/btl

Tasting Note Domaines des Baumard produces some of the finest examples of Savennieres, and Jean Baumard and now his son, Florent, are universally regarded as the finest winemakers in the appellation. Their wines are among the most unique and rewarding in the world: this is a honeyed, dry white of unmatched concentration, per-fume, and longevity.92 Points Wine Spectator“Beautifully pure, with salted butter, chamomile and quinine notes lacing up a core of creamed Jonagold apple and lanolin flavors. The long, creamy finish lets the chamomile edge play out elegantly. Drink now through 2018.”

maculan pino & toi White blend, Italy $16.99/btl.

Tasting Notes“Made from 60% Tocai, 25% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Grigio from various vineyards in and around the town of Breganze. Pino & Toi is pale yellow in color with an intense and fruity nose with hints of refreshing citrus. On the palate, the wine is balanced with loads of fresh peaches and pear followed by a crisp finish.” ~ Winery notes
