We’re just back from an amazing week in Loire that began with Lise & Bertrand Jousset in Monlouis-sur-Loire. We ate, drank, danced and chased away the wild boars with song. Tasting our way through Salon St Jean, La Dive & Le Salon des Vins de Loire, we visited with our extended TEW family, and welcomed a few more who will be joining us in spring! Stay tuned! Bobo is happening! -K. Ulrich

Mid-summer, I had the great fortune to visit with Jean-Michel Gaunoux during our trip to Burgundy, and cannot express enough, what a honor it is to be able to offer these wines to you. -Karen Ulrich
Small with yields and production, but grand in generosity and grace, Jean-Michel Gaunoux has always favored freshness and acidity over any influence of oak. In Meursault, he harvests early, never employs more than 20% new oak, racks after one year at most, and blends and ages in stainless steel to maintain minerality and citrus notes. Gaunoux also halted all battonage in 2004, and since then has added only minimal amounts of sulfur to his bottled wines. As the raciest of Gaunoux’s wines, the Meursault “Les Perrieres” always exhibits great precision and tension, regardless of the vintage. Read more
With tears in my eyes, I must share with you all some very sad news.
We lost a loving brother, an eccentric, loyal and devoted family member last night Sept. 10, 2016.
He was phenomenally chaotic, brilliant, honest, dutiful and legendary in his generosity. Marc brought light to the core of T Edward.
Our history is filled with indelible Pichon moments, we’ll miss you. RIP Marc Pichon.
