Each Monday, we publish a round-up of the most compelling flash sales offers for the coming week. Given the diversity of our audience across all ages, preferences, and budgets, know that some of these bottles might not quite float your boat, or might not be the right price. But all of our choices represent genuine value and hard-to-match opportunities in their own categories.

This week is for the collectors, starting right out of the gate with one of Napa Valley’s iconic wines, the 2019 Dominus on offer on Monday from Wine Express, while Wednesday brings an impeccable white Burgundy from Wine Access. Value hunters will enjoy great Bordeaux offerings from SommSelect, with a nicely aged Fronsac on Wednesday or a Lussac Saint-Emilion on Friday.

Keep an eye out each week for our top picks.

bottle of 2019 Domaine Guy Robin Vaillons Premier Cru Chablis

2019 Domaine Guy Robin Vaillons Premier Cru Chablis, $45

Who’s it for: Chablis is for everyone. Even if you think you don’t like Chardonnay, we’re betting that you’ll like crisp, minerally Chablis. This bottle, from Domaine Guy Robin’s holdings in the Premier Cru “Vaillons” vineyard, offers precise acidity, tart apple and citrus, and a fresh, captivating finish.

bottle of 2019 Domaine Jocelyne & Yves Lafoy Prelude Côte-Rôtie

2019 Domaine Jocelyne & Yves Lafoy Prelude Côte-Rôtie, $68

Who’s it for: Anyone who’s serious about Syrah. If you are, you probably know that Côte-Rôtie in the northern Rhône Valley produces some of the most acclaimed expressions of the variety anywhere in the world. This wine, from the husband and wife team of Jocelyne and Yves Lafoy, and their son Gaëtan, emphasizes freshness, minerality, and finesse.

bottle of 2018 Domaine de la Vougeraie Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot Monopole

2018 Domaine de la Vougeraie Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot Monopole, $200

Who’s it for: Those who’re seeking unicorn wines. This wine comes from the Le Clos Blanc Premier Cru vineyard, which is wholly owned by Domaine de la Vougeraie, and dates back almost 1,000 years. Despite what you might think, this white Burgundy isn’t 100% Chardonnay, as a small amount of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc are blended in, keeping with the ancient traditions of the place, adding a level of complexity and roundness that is truly distinctive. It also earned 95 points from Decanter.

Where to get it: Wine Access, available Apr. 27, 2022 at 2 p.m. ET until sold out

bottle of 2008 Château du Carillon Fronsac

2008 Château du Carillon Fronsac, $25

Who’s it for: Anyone who wants to experience aged wine at everyday prices. Hailing from a small, lesser-known commune in Bordeaux, this wine is almost entirely Merlot with just a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon blended in, and will be tremendously instructive (and also pretty enjoyable) if you want to understand why people care about older wine.

Where to get it: SommSelect, available Apr. 27, 2022 at 9:45 a.m. PT until sold out

Note: The link for this offer goes live on the day and time specified. To see if a previous day’s offer is still available, scroll down the page linked above.

bottle of 2019 Domaine Philippe Gavignet Bourgogne Pinot Noir

2019 Domaine Philippe Gavignet Bourgogne Pinot Noir, $39

Who’s it for: Affordable red Burgundy has become almost non-existent, but you can still find some nice values in the area if you know where to look, like at this fourth-generation producer in Nuits-St-Georges working mostly from 50-plus-year-old vines and making wines that are perhaps more elegant than the typical bottles from the village.

Where to get it: SommSelect, available Apr. 28, 2022 at 9:45 a.m. PT until sold out

Note: The link for this offer goes live on the day and time specified. To see if a previous day’s offer is still available, scroll down the page linked above.

bottle of 2015 La Serena Gemini Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

2015 La Serena Gemini Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, $79

Who’s it for: Investors, or those who want to drink like them. Brunello di Montalcino, the iconic Sangiovese-based wine of Tuscany, has long been considered a very collectable red wine, so being able to snag a reserve bottling from this warm, critically acclaimed vintage (this bottle snagged 95 points from Wine Spectator and Decanter alike) is quite the opportunity.

Where to get it: Wine Access, available Apr. 29, 2022 at 10 a.m. ET until sold out

Note: The link for this offer goes live on the day and time specified. Click here to see if a previous day’s offer is still available.

bottle of 2016 Château Haut La Greniere Lussac Saint-Emilion

2016 Château Haut La Greniere Lussac Saint-Emilion, $18.99

Who’s it for: Bargain lovers. Here you’re getting a lovely bottle of Merlot-based Bordeaux at an everyday price, yet this wine typically retails for over twice the cost. Snag a few bottles and celebrate your status as a savvy shopper by popping one open.

Where to get it: Wine Access, available Apr. 29, 2022 at 2 p.m. ET until sold out
