Stunning Waves of Aromatic Complexity

But the Palate is Even Better

- Incredible Concentration, Ridiculous Mouthfeel

- Incredible Deep and Clear Fruit

An Absolute Mad Genius Wine

This is a good story. Some stories are better than others and the story of this wine is a good one. So

one day I was sitting in my couch and flipping through the old 'gram. That's Instagram but the 'gram is what the cool kids call it Klaus-Peter Keller is perhaps the most visible German winemaker on Instagram. Give him a follow if you can. He drinks great wines (including recently some Mobitz 14s).

A Volnay and a Pommard That Are Quite Simply off the Charts in Terms of Fruit

As most of us know, Romaric Chavy-Chouet has crossed over into the elite tier in terms of quality

and price.

The rules as I see them for this list. Consistently excellent wine from year to year. If you are trapped in Cleveland as a storm is bearing down and all the Costco has is the '02 Roilette Cuvee Tardive, you snatch that up because it is on this list. Or at an art opening in NYC and they are pouring '13 Yellowtail  Verdelho and '15 Lapalu VDF Amphorae, you ask for a glass of the Beaujolais after consulting this list.

Most of my wineries have a decent amount of fame in their native regions (or countries) when I start

with them.

I pretty much avoid Italian sparkling wine like the plague.  Why?  Because it generally stinks and on

top of stinking, it’s annoyingly hip and hugely overpriced.  Pretty much, if you have $35-$45 to spend, you are better off with a French sparkling wine of any type.

First, some background.  The most generally well known “serious” Italian sparkling wine is Franciacorta (which is made using Methode Champenoise).
