September selections: 

We've been obsessed with the Loire Valley lately. You might have noticed—we've got an all-Loire flight on the menu and had a raucous Loire-themed event with importer Charles Neal last week. So it only makes sense to feature two of the name brand Loire appellations in this month's club.
Paul Prieur Sancerre "Pieuchaud Silex" 2021
Many wine lovers fell in love with Sauvignon Blanc by drinking the crisp and flinty Sancerre of yesteryear. With a string of consecutive warm vintages (and likely more on the way) that style is disappearing, so it's increasingly refreshing to taste Sancerre that tastes like... well, Sancerre. 
Paul Prieur is a longtime favorite producer of Compline. 11th-generation Luc runs the estate today and hits all the right keywords: organic, plowing by horse, unfined and unfiltered, blah, blah, blah. Pieuchaud is a lieu-dit in the village of Thauvenay planted entirely on silex, a flinty clay and one of the three distinctive soil types of Sancerre. This is snappy, green, lean Sancerre and a beautiful rendition of great Sauvignon Blanc.
Bernard Baudry Chinon "Le Clos Guillot" 2020
Bernard Baudry is indisputably one of the finest producers of Cabernet Franc anywhere in the world. He and son Matthieu craft structured and ageworthy wines showing the idiosyncrasies of varied soils and expositions within Chinon. We love them for their transparency and the quality they deliver in relation to the price. There are very few regions in the world where you can buy wines that will age for over a decade from a leading producer at a reasonable price, so take advantage while you can. 
The Baudrys make their labels user-friendly by matching the color of the label to the color of the corresponding soil. Le Clos Guillot is a vineyard comprised of yellow limestone on the northern banks of the Vienne River (a tributary of the Loire). The 2020 is stately and complex now, but is also perhaps the most ageworthy wine we've ever included in a club. Drink it now and grab one of the few extras we received for your cellar!

That's the show this month! Cheers! And remember: wine club members receive 10% off glasses/wine flights and events, and never pay wine service on retail bottles at the Wine Shop. Anytime! Thanks for all your thirst, trust, and support!
