Hot deal of the day on wine

Hot Deal Alert: 2006 Famille Kreydenweiss- $33.99/Bottle on Cases Shipped

We learned about the wine before we tasted it: A 100-year old-vine Chateauneuf, made by an Alsatian newcomer. The wine had all the pedigree imaginable. Ancient, biodynamically farmed vines. Roots that burrowed meters underground. Sand soil like Chateau Rayas. Even so, we weren't quite prepared for the utter hedonistic purity of this first Kreydenweiss Chateauneuf-du-Pape. When we first tasted this tiny 8-barrel production, we were simply blown away by the saturated, wild fruit intensity, firmly braced by chiseled modernity. We wasted no time asking Antoine Kreydenweiss how much he would earmark for WineAccess members. He shrugged and told us, "I have nothing, but I'll give you what I have."

Deal: 2006 Famille Kreydenweiss Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Normally available for $50 a bottle. Available now for as little as $33.99/bottle shipped on cases. Shipping included on orders of 4 bottles or more!
