2017 Louis Latour Les Bastides Pinot Noir

Louis Latour is a powerhouse in Burgundy wine, and this is an interesting offering from them because it is actually grown outside the confines of Burgundy. It’s a little tricky to navigate on the label, and the last time we reviewed this wine, a reader popped in with some good info.  This wine is actually …

2019 Kirkland Signature Sancerre

It’s always exciting when there’s a new addition to the Kirkland Signature portfolio of wines, and we’ve seen a few good ones over the past 12 months.  There was the new K Vine Kirkland wines (Chardonnay and Rosé) from Charles Smith, and the Kirkland Barolo that come to mind. This Sancerre is definitely on the …

Lucien Albrecht Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rosé

Here’s a fun bottle I was excited to see hit Costco shelves.  Lucien Albrecht produces excellent wine and we really enjoyed the standard Cremant d’Alsace Brut that we tasted a couple years ago. Now we have the Brut Rosé at Costco with a special price of $16.99.  The standard Brut, when it was around, was …

2016 Pagodes de Cos St Estephe Bordeaux

I love it when Costco carries these second wines from top estates.  In this case, we’re tasting the second bottle from Chateau Cos d’Estournel, whose main estate grand vin is $200-$250.  So accessing this world class property for under $50 is a pretty good way to go. I still would like to see Costco’s price …

2018 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur

The Bordeaux Superieur has never been one of our favorite Kirkland bottles. In the past we’ve found it drinkable and semi-fair for its super low $7.99 price tag, but not really a wine that we would label “enjoyable” or one that we would stock up on. With the new 2018 vintage, the price stays the …

2018 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

There’s good news and bad news with the latest vintage of this Kirkland bottle. We’ll start with the bad news, the price going up $2 to $19.99. In the last vintage we reviewed, the 2016, it was priced at $17.99. Even at $17.99, we enjoyed, but weren’t in love with, that vintage. The good news …

2019 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages

Well, I finally found it. I heard from readers all over the country that the new 2019 Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages was out there, but it didn’t show up in Atlanta area stores until recently. My first question for readers who found it: did the price stay the same at $6.99? The answer thankfully …

2019 Ame du Vin Cotes de Provence Rose

As far as summertime Rosé goes, the Kirkland Cotes de Provence Rosé for $10 remains my top choice and I’ve still seen a few cases of it lingering around in Costco stores around the Atlanta area which is a surprise. It’s typically one of the fastest moving Kirkland bottles of the year.​​ I thought it …

2017 Gerard Bertrand Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

I snapped a couple of these bottles up the instant I saw them. Even though this is a wine I’ve never tasted before, there are a lot of good things going on here. First, the producer, Gerard Bertrand, is one of my favorite French producers. They make a wide variety of wines from many different …
