2019 Chateau Gassier Le Pas du Moine Rose
Wally's Price: $26
Produced from organically grown grapes, this crisply textured wine is grown in the cru vineyards of Mont Saint-Victoire. With its lively acidity and balanced profile, its a rose for all seasons and one of my 'pre-game' favorites. - Wine Enthusiast

NV Francis Orban Extra BrutWally's Price: $45
In the world of beautifully crafted Champagnes from grower producers (meaning the winemaker farms the vineyards and grows the grapes themselves), Francis Orban is one of the very best. Their flagship is the Extra Brut which is produced from 100% Pinot Meunier, a grape used to lend bright fruit and aromatics to other Champagne blends. Here the variety shines on its own and extra long ageing means this bubbly is not shy in warm, toasty notes of brioche and croissant, complemented by fine, aristocratic bubbles and a long finish of citrus and mineral. - Robert Vardanian: Wine Director, Wally’s Santa Monica
2018 Littorai Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
Wally's Price: $100
Littorai’s 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a blend of de-classified barrels and press wine from the Littorai’s most prized vineyards, including Hirsch, Pivot, Mays Canyon, Thieriot and The Haven. This wine is farmed using organic and biodynamic methods. Aged for 11 months in French oak, approximately 10% new. It shows the purity and depth but is very approachable upon release. Winemaker Ted Lemon trained at some of the finest domains in Burgundy including Domain Dujac, Roumier, Bruno Clair, and Guy Roulot. His 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is inviting with notes of blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry, baking spices and fresh herbs. It is intoxicatingly aromatic with bright acidity and great length. - Dustin Cassidy: Sommelier, Wally’s Beverly Hills
