Domaine Gavoty, Chateau Mesclances [4/1]: The first two containers from Domaine Gavoty and two containers from Chateau Les Mesclances are expected to land the same day, bringing us the full lineup of 2021 rosés from these exciting new (to us!) Provencal estates, along with Gavoty’s “Grand Classique” Blanc 2021.
Gour de Chaulé [4/1]: For April Fool’s Day we are also expecting a container from Gour de Chaulé with the 2020 Cotes du Rhone, the 2021 Rosé (sold out pre-arrival), and the 2019 Gigondas in 750 ml and 1.5L formats.
Hoffmann-Jayer [4/2]: Our newest grower in Burgundy makes his RWM debut with the arrival of this container. We will receive the full lineup of 2017s from the estate just in advance of winegrower Alexandre Vernet’s visit to the US.
