Some New Wines To Thrill Your Tastebuds

Vicchiomaggio Ripa delle Mandorle (IGT) 2010 (Tuscany, Italy)
If you enjoy Italian reds and are feeling just a little venturesome, we enthusiastically recommend this delightful Tuscan blend of 75% Sangiovese and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. There's absolutely no shame in having some quaffers in the house, and this wine definitely qualifies.
There's something so right about the ripe berry and cherry flavors. There's an unabashed jamminess to this wine which is very pleasing. Mind you, we're still talking about an Italian wine so it isn't a knock-you-down version of jammy. There's also lovely minerality to it with the refreshing absence of overt oakiness.
We could drink this wine any night of the week.
Order a pizza, pour a glass of Vicchiomaggio and call it a (very good) day.
Vicchiomaggio is an important winery, awarded Italian Winemaker of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Commission in 1997, 2002, 2005, and 2010. The Ripa delle Mandorle has a few accolades as well – Sommelier Wine Awards UK: Gold Medal; Union Oenologues de France: Gold Medal; and International Wine & Spirit Competition: Best in Class.

Volpaia Chianti Classico 2008 (DOCG) (Tuscany, Italy)
Speaking of Tuscany, we recently tasted through dozens of Chianti Classicos in order to present the best one we could find for under $20.
Volpaia was at the top of the list for a more traditionally produced (rather than modern style) Chianti Classico. And it's positively delicious with lamb shanks.
"Volpaia’s 2008 Chianti Classico is a pretty, mid-weight offering informed by tobacco, flowers, herbs and cherries. As is often the case in cooler years, these high-altitude vineyards tend to yield a more ethereal style of wine. Still, this Chianti Classico finds its balance nicely with time in the glass. It is a model of restrained elegance." (Wine Advocate)

Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly 2010 (Beaujolais, Burgundy, France)
A delightful wine from importer Kermit Lynch. This cru Beaujolais is a stand-out. It has flinty intensity imparted by the blue schist soils in which the Gamay is grown. You won't find this anywhere else in the Beaujolais.
A favorite of writers Richard Olney and Colette, Château Thivin is one of the standards against which cru Beaujolais should measure itself – high class from start to finish. Not your run-of-the-mill red, this wine should appeal to Old World wine lovers looking for something unique.
Tiny Maine blueberries mingle with blackberry and huckleberry for a refreshing if tart- and bitter-edged performance, a cooling sense of high-toned herbal concentrate and a wet stone as well as crystalline sense of mineral impingement adding intrigue and allure. As polished in texture as it is penetrating in finish, this promises to be deliciously versatile over at least the next half dozen years, as witness a long line of predecessors with similar personalities from this estate.” (Wine Advocate)

Château Haut Beyzac I Second Bordeaux 2005 (Bordeaux, France)
Autumn is a great time to drink Bordeaux. We first tasted this wine with the winemaker in France two-and-a-half years ago and it has taken this long to get the wine imported into the country!
Haut Beyzac's vineyard is in Vertheuil, bordering the famous village of Saint-Estèphe. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has classic flavors of cassis and cloves, with silky tannins and a long, lingering finish.
“Even better is the 2005 I Second, which offers blacker fruits as well as more depth and richness, medium to full body, and excellent ripeness, purity, and length.” (Wine Advocate)

Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 2009 (Chablis, Burgundy, France)
Back by popular demand, the new vintage of Droin Chablis has finally arrived!
The Droin family has been in Chablis since at least 1547, when the first records indicate that Jehan Droin owned one parcel of vines in the Clos. Since then, the family has always owned property in the village and is among the oldest land owners in the area.
"The 2009 Chablis is a pretty, entry-level wine. It shows considerable energy and lovely overall balance through to the round finish. It is a fabulous wine, particularly at this price. This is an exciting set of wines from Benoit Droin, one of the generation of rising stars in Chablis." (Wine Advocate)

Domaine Tempier Bandol (Provence, France)
The new vintage of Bandol from this cult winery is now in stock!
Domaine Tempier stands as the proud benchmark in Provence. Of all of the domaines Kermit Lynch Imports represents, no other winery stands out more as their cornerstone, serving in defense of terroir. Tempier is more intricately interwoven with Kermit Lynch's history than any other winery.

This red wine is made from 75% Mourvèdre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault and 2% Carignan from vines averaging 35 years. All grapes are harvested by hand and it's bottled unfined and unfiltered.
"There's good stuffing to the dark plum, currant and blackberry flavors in this ripe, chewy red. Finishes with beefy and smoky notes. 3,690 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
