2020 Charles Debourges Sancerre

We knew we had tried this bottle before because the label looked awfully familiar.  But in searching past reviews we couldn’t find it which was odd. So we went deep into the historical pages and found it, in the 2015 vintage.  The label looked the same but the producer changed from Olivier Larochette to Charles Debourges. The …

2018 Chateau des Rochers Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

When looking for value buys in the Costco wine aisle, some of our favorite finds are the small displays of random Bordeaux bottles that wedge in between other wines in the “cheap seats” (meaning the aisles of stacked wine, not wooden boxes). If you browse through our French review pages, you can find quite a …

2020 Kirkland Signature Chateauneuf du Pape

Finally, we found this. Just like many of you have trouble finding the wines we review here, we also sometimes have trouble finding the ones our readers recommend. Each trip to the store, we cross our fingers hoping to find them. The new Kirkland Chateauneuf has been out for a while, and readers have reported …

2019 Gerard Bertrand An 825 Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

Here’s the latest vintage of a sparkling wine we’ve enjoyed in the past. Those readers who are into these wines, probably remember the Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Cuvee that we reviewed a while back which shares many similarities with this wine: the price, the label, the varietal blend, the origin (both Limoux Brut Rosé); the ABV. We …

2016 Chateau Bel Air Gloria Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Here’s one of those fun affordable Bordeaux finds that pop up occasionally in Costco.  This one actually appeared in the wooden boxes as opposed to the “cheap seats” (stacks of wine aisle) where the sub $20 ones often are found. You’ll notice the word Gloria in the name, and a quick Google search tells us …

2019 Famille Gourjon Chateau Font Barriele Les Vignes d’Heloise Costieres-de-Nimes

Ok, this one is straight up a personal pick. There’s lots of words in the title above but the key ones are “Costieres-de-Nimes.” This is a great area of Rhone that is frequently overlooked, and I was pumped to see one of these bottles hit Costco stores, potentially for the first time that we’ve ever …

2020 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages

The Atlanta area must be the last place in the world to get this bottle. I’ve heard from readers for many months talking about the new Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages, and on my pretty-much-weekly trips to Costco, I have been consistently disappointed not to find it. Until now. It’s impossible to beat this price …

2019 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

Finally, for the first time, we didn’t skip a vintage on the Kirkland Chablis. For some reason, this one either doesn’t always appear near us, it sells out fast, or it skips a vintage. I think it’s a combination of the first two. But we found it this time, and there’s good news right off …

2019 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur

Kirkland’s Bordeaux Superieur is always an interesting bottle. Some people love it, some don’t, and our opinion seems to sway with every vintage. This new 2019 vintage changes things up a bit. First, the price actually decreased by $1, down to $6.99. It has always been $7.99, so a welcome change there. The blend changed …
