Les Crêtes Torrette Valle d’Aosta 2016, Italy, $32
A juicy, fresh and alpine red that is, as yet, undiscovered here in B.C.

Domaine Piron-Lameloise Chénas 2014, France, $30
Minerality balanced by ripe cherry fruit and blackberry tea notes—too delicious not to try.

Fillaboa Finca Monte Alto Rías Baixas Albariño 2014, Spain, $38
Time in bottle and lees aging gives extra depth to this peach-scented maritime white.
