1. GUYOT CHOPPIN BRUT CHAMPAGNE

This tangy, fresh apple, and mineral-driven Champagne that hails from just outside Épernay is one of the best values in Champagne! Try it with Tulip Tree Creamery’s Trillium Triple Cream Cheese for a treat. $35, save $15

2. CHÂTEAU GIGOGNAN CLOS DU ROI CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

Long one of our favorite red wines of the world, this certified organic Châteauneuf-du-Pape is grown just outside the village of Sorgue in the southeast corner of the appellation. Made of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, it's classic in style and would be incredible paired with Foxglove cheese from Tulip Tree Creamery. $45, save $5

3. DOMAINE JOËL CURVEUX POUILLY-FUISSÉ

From the town of Fuissé, this fourth-generation producer is making exquisite Chardonnay with touches of lemon, apple, and spice flavors that have minerality and length in the back of the palate. Perfect with either a cheese plate or grilled salmon. $29, save $6

4. CHARLES MÉRAS BRUT ROSÉ

A wonderfully dry, sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir in the south of France. It pairs beautifully with brunch or a charcuterie plate. $16

5. CLOS DES GRANDS PRIMOS MUSCADET SÈVRE ET MAINE

This Muscadet, 100% Melon de Bourgogne, is minerally and nothing short of stunning! Perfect with a bowl of clams, shrimp, or a cheese plate. $14, save $2

The white has been hard to get, but the Springboro store has plenty. Washington Square Wine only has the red wine.
