2019 Château Carbonnieux Pessac-Leognan Bordeaux Blanc, $44.95

Here, you find a classic Bordeaux white blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon with extended lees aging in 25% new French oak, offering a wine that combines both ample tree and citrus fruit along with spice and toast.

bottle of 2018 Roger Goulart Organic Cava Reserva

2018 Roger Goulart Organic Cava Reserva, $20

Who’s it for: Anyone needing to bring a bit of brightness into their day. Reserva Cava, from the Spanish region of Penedes, often strikes a wonderful balance between brighter and fresher styles of sparkling wine like Prosecco and more developed styles like Champagne, and this bottle is no different. You can enjoy it with dinner, brunch, or just a sunny afternoon.

2014 Bollinger La Grande Année Brut, $155

Who’s it for: If you need a bottle to kick off a memorable evening, here’s an exceptional bottling from one of Champagne’s most well-regarded houses. Made from 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay, all the wine was fermented in used oak casks, as is Bollinger’s style, giving the wine a mix of fruit aromas and rich nuttiness and toast.

Thursday, May 19

bottle of 2007 Defaix Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Lechet

2007 Defaix Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Lechet, $60

Who’s it for: We sometimes fall into the trap of thinking of Chablis as solely a wine about freshness, acidity, and brightness, and that blinds us to the glories of aged expressions of Chardonnay from these northern reaches of Burgundy, like this 15-year-old bottling from Daniel-Etienne and his family holdings in this Premier Cru vineyard, which offers hints of roasted apple and marmalade along with notes of hay and button mushroom.

Where to get it: SommSelect, available May 19, 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.
