A beautiful representation of Corsican history, this bottle is blended with the grape Biancu Gentile. Yves Leccia was actually among the first to replant this native Corsican grape. Balanced and refined, this wine displays notes of apricot and Mediterranean herbs, with a touch of salinity. Enjoy with grilled fish.
Ancient, indigenous varieties form the gripping backbone of this Calabrian red from the Lamezia region. The Statti family has farmed there since the 1700s and harvests the Gaglioppo, Grecco Nerro, and Magliocco in this bottle from vines planted beside their ancient olive groves. Unpretentious, delicious Italian table wine.
Jean Foillard deservingly falls into the category of “legendary winemakers’. He helped pave the way for biodynamic & organic viticulture in Beaujolais. His wines are both age-worthy & irresistible in their youth. His Fleurie is muscular with explosive aromatics. Enjoy with just about anything.
Jean Foillard is known for making some of the most compelling wines of Beaujolais. He farms old vines across multiple appellations within his region, never using chemicals in his work & only the healthiest grapes make it into his wine. His Morgon Corcelette is crazy fresh, energetic & mineral driven.
Jean Foillard, veritable master of Morgon terroir, is sourcing from the highest altitude lieu-dit in the appellation for this cuvée, resulting in one of his most structured and brooding wines. Though an absolute treat now, the acidity and crunchy tannins present point to a bright future.
Morgon is to Beaujolais as the slopes of the Côte du Py are to Morgon. And when you pair prime real estate with the pure artistry of an OG like Jean Foillard, the result is some of the most ridiculous Beaujolais out there.
Scar of the Sea x Dedalus San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir 2021
A light, juicy California Pinot Noir, this top-notch wine was made exclusively for the Dedalus community by Mikey and Gina Giugni of Scar of the Sea. It comes from a mix of organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards, one tended to by Gina. Look out for notes of candied cherry and tarragon.
Scar of the Sea x Dedalus Central Coast Chardonnay 2021
This fresh, zingy Chardonnay from our friends Mikey and Gina Giugni was made exclusively for Dedalus. It’s a killer California Chardonnay that expertly channels the oceanic influences of San Luis Obispo. Notes of citrus zest, squeezed lemon, wet stone, apricot, and stone fruits.
Highly respected amongst his peers, Didier Barral lives & works with an uncompromising respect for the environment, especially in the way he championed the biodynamic movement in France. His ‘Faugères Valinière’ is full-bodied & muscular, showing concentrated notes of blue fruit & spices.
At Domaine Leon Barral, crafting beautiful wine and cultivating a living breathing ecosystem within the vineyard go hand in hand. Didier Barral is one of the most holistic and detail-oriented vignerons out there. His wines are immensely powerful, age-worthy, and complex.
When it comes to great Riesling, it is increasingly difficult-if not wholly impossible-to top the mineral-laden, fresh and drinkable bottlings from Florian Lauer. His are wines of complexity and finesse the likes of which deserve your attention. Senior is Just off-dry, with immense pleasure to give.
Known as the best producer of Pinot Noir in Germany, these wines are highly sought after. Sven Enderle and Florian Moll work with old vines, yet their style is far from conventional. Certified biodynamic and organic, these guys are the real deal. Notes of raspberry and spice, this wine is beyond crushable.
This gorgeous Chianti represents an old-school, no frills style that is meant to stun you on the table. Pair with salumi, prosciutto, or pizza. Ripe and rich, but with ample freshness, you’ll find commingling flavors of leather, cherry, baking spices, and smoke–classic, unimprovable Chianti at its best.
Do not pass up this supreme value in top-tier White Burgundy. Jean-Marc exclusively works terroir that is considered “lesser” than those in Puligny & Meursault, but is considered by many to be one of the best winegrowers in Burgundy. This Montagny Blanc will make you a believer. Enjoy with roast chicken.
Now here is the real deal. I've had many independently fantastic winemakers in Burgundy refer to Jean-Marc as one of the best winegrowers in all of Burgundy. Attention to detail is extreme here, with serious care given to harvesting the highest quality of fruit. Sourced from a small parcel in Chassagne-Montrachet, Jean-Marc nails the balance between precision and decadence in his whites. This superb 2018 gives up notes of lemon curd, Granny Smith apple, and oyster shell. Pair this up with a roast chicken. Trust me.
The Limite Acqui Sicure is a blend of red and white grapes: Montepulciano, Passerina, and Trebbiano. Its cheeky name means “safe waters limit,” or “this is where the safe zone ends, risk death by shark if you swim out any further.” Given that almost half of it is made with white grapes, this wine has a racy acidic spine that is balanced by fresh herbs and a salty finish. This wine pushes the limits, and so you should eat it with something that does the same. Try it paired with a movie night and french fries made with a generous portion of crispy sage and rosemary and a side of aioli.
