Andrew from Bon Vivant Wines recently let me know that he now has access to the Louis/Dressner portfolio of wines. A good 20% of my cellar is comprised of Louis/Dressner wines as Joe Dressner has a stable of great wine producers from some of my very favorite places in France (or are these my favorite places in France because of the wine Mr. Dressner imports from them?). Louis/Dressner has also started importing from Italy, but I’ve not yet had the chance to taste these wines. Let’s hope that changes with Andrew’s access!
I’ve been mail-ordering these wines from retailers primarily on the East and West Coast for the past 5 or 6 years, and picking up the odd bottle that I might find in Chicago. It will be great to have access to Clos Roche Blanche, J.P. Brun, Desvignes, Breton, et al., and be able to support a local wine shop doing it.
