What We're Drinking


Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Wine of the Week: Antano Milziade Umbria Rosso IGT ($14.99)


Antano Milziade Umbria Rosso IGT ($14.99). We can't get enough of this non-vintage Umbrian stunner, and we know you'll love it too - in stock now at  

Sometimes vintage doesn't matter; it's the blend that counts. This is especially true in the case of the Antano Milziade Rosso IGT ($14.99) a nonvintage Sagrantino-Sangiovese blend from Umbria that has captured even our most fickle of wine-geek hearts. In the hills just east of Tuscany (St. Francis of Assisi's stomping grounds) Francesco Milziade produces wine from grapes grown on his family's small plot with minimal intervention. We love how the high-toned cherry fruit and mineral aromatics of Sangiovese are balanced by Sagrantino's rich, grippy, and darker bass tones; how the blending of younger and older wine creates layers of complexity. While this wine has some staying power, once its open you won't be able to resist savoring it until the very last drop!

"This extraordinary blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Sagrantino is the perfect wine for those looking for smoother, richer, more powerful wines that aren't too tannic. The Sagrantino's power is deftly balanced by the elegance of Sangiovese, which gives the wine great length and adds to its freshness.  Aged only in stainles steel tanks, this nonvintage wine is perfect for grilled meats, tomato-based pasta dishes, or to be enjoyed the Umbrian way - with just a hunk of cheese and a loaf of bread!" (Greg St. Clair, Italian wine buyer, K&L Wine Merchants)
