Domaine de la Tour du Bon Bandol Rosé 2016: $26, $23.40

Domaine de la Tour du Bon, situated in Bandol's northwest corner, represents some of the highest-elevation terroir in Provence.  The estate's gorgeous 2016 is a delicate yet powerful encapsulation of France's most celebrated rosé region, with aromas of strawberries, red flowers, and lilac, a textured, weighty mouthfeel, and enough tannin to complement food and ensure that the result will improve with age.
Pence Ranch Chardonnay 2014: $28, $25.20

Blair Pence's dry-farmed, cool climate Santa Barbara Chardonnay ferments on native yeasts in a combination of new and used oak (mostly the latter), resulting in a refined, Burgundian entry with a nose of citrus and green apple, as well as toast and baking spice demonstrative of its new world origins.  Cool evenings in the vineyard keep the acid high, contributing to the 2014's clearly-delineated structure.
Domaine des Billards Beaujolais Saint-Amour 2015: $22, $19.80

Domaine des Billards has operated since the 18th century, producing wine right in the heart of Saint-Amour, a cru reputed for long-lived wines with aromas of spice and peach, aromatics joined by violets, black cherries, and blueberries in the Domaine's hearty, full-bodied 2015 bottling.
