We love Pinot Noir based bubbles, and to find one under $20 is all the better. A bit crisper than the Lucien Albrecht with gorgeous light and crisp raspberry and strawberry flavors. Classic baked brioche nose. Why spend 4 times as much on Champagne when Alsace does it like this!

Yep, a Pinot Noir ice wine! Gorgeous bright apple and bing cherry flavors, decadent but with crisp acidity. A rare treat!



Jacques Girardin Bourgogne Jacques Girardin Bourgogne $27.00

The Girardin family have been tending vines in Santenay for 450 years. 15 months in oak and though young and quite structured with a robust tannic backbone, itís more feminine on the nose than expected. On its way to being an truly epic Burgundy, itís still gorgeous today in all its young muscularity.

Just across from where their Premier Cru Volnay are grown, these Pinot Noir vines were planted in the 60's and 70's and are amazing bang for the buck. Nice dark cherry flavors with lovely earthy mushroom notes. From a great producer comes great wines even if they don't have the fancy name.

Robert Moncuit Grand Cru Champagne Robert Moncuit Grand Cru Champagne $42.00

Grower Champagne done remarkably well. This father son make a number of premier and grand crus and this tastes as good as any. Hints of melon, zesty peach, and an unusual touch of woodsy oak on the nose. Really pretty and intense flavors, especially the peach flavors. Truly gorgeous and one of my absolute favorites.



Clos de Moulin aux Moines Auxey-Duresses Clos de Moulin aux Moines Auxey-Duresses $45.00

These near 70 year old vines are in the highest and steepest corner of the vineyard, where only a very meagre layer of soil covers the bedrock. Only 6,000 bottles produced.

Volnay is between Pommard and Meursault and often produces the best reds of the Cote de Beaune. Structured and silky, with elegance and plenty of delicious Pinot Noir fruit, black cherries, soft forest leaves, a wisp of tannic structure and lively acid. Don't touch this unless you're prepared to have your heart and palate stolen. How this is the same grape as Meomi I'll never know...



Vidon Brigita Vidon Brigita $49.00

Using clone 777 exclusively this Willamette award winner shows rich, ripe fruit of blackberry with jammy plum and a hint of herbal character. Also shows some dark cherry, cocoa and leather. Best of their clonal selections with great complexity and a lengthy finish.



J.Wilkes Deal J.Wilkes Deal $58.00

While Napa gets the buzz and the latest rapper/race car driver/NBA player/Kardashian wanna-be buying up vineyards, down south in the Santa Maria Valley, some remarkably elegant wines are being crafted out of the limelight. Tectonic plates crashing into each other have created lateral valleys that run perpendicular to the coast. These funnel cool moist air through the valley creating a remarkable cool climate AVA despite being quite a ways south. I've been really impressed with these wines and we're happy to offer cru members a really special deal. Buying any of these at the vineyard runs $30 a bottle, wine.com the same. Luckily, some wineries and winemakers like what we are doing here at Bitto, supporting wines by smaller producers, ignoring the bogus ratings, encouraging guests to branch out, etc. To help us show what this valley can do and to help you get into these wines at the lowest possible price, they have provided this unique threesome for us to sell.



Grantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin 2011 Grantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin 2011 $59.00

From one of the most famous Burgundy appellations. One of my favorite wine quotes goes " I can't remember the place, and I can't remember the girl.... but the wine was Chambertin." Dark ripe nose of berry still surrounded with pungent Gevrey earth tones. Powerful now, give it a few years to show off its subtleties.
