95 Point Cali Burgundy = Quality & Value in a bottle 

Walter Hansel has been synonymous with great quality at a great price! Year after year these wines impress me and my clientele alike. The first vines were planted in 1978 just up the block from Kistler! The first vintage produced 3 barrels of Pinot Noir and 10 barrels of Chardonnay, and the rest as they say, is history! Stephen Hansel (Walter’s son) had one of the best winemakers as his tutor (Tom Rochiolli) so it is no surprise that they are still putting out great wines decades later. Year after year this winery produces amazing “Dollar Cost Average” under-priced & over-delivered in quality wines!

Walter Hansel 2021 “North Slope” Pinot  Noir,
Russian River Valley 95 Points

GGWC 49.99 – THIS WEEK 46.99

Winemaker notes: “This begins four feet from the end of the South slope and continues to slope to the North. It is 100% French clone 115. The close proximity to the South slope does not influence these flavors as clone 115 exhibits the most fruit-driven flavors and appears more “New World” than French.”
FMW 95 Points: “Beautiful color and impressive aromas of sweet cherries, raspberries, and a hint of spice greet you on impact. The wine is full of body and loaded with lush flavors of bing cherries, sweet plums, and a touch of Burgundian earthiness on the palate, which is bold, concentrated, and silky smooth. The wine is nicely balanced and leads into a long finish with silk-grained tannins.

Walter Hansel 2021 Cuvée Alyce Chardonnay
Russian River Valley 94 Points

GGWC 44.99 – THIS WEEK 39.99

Vinous 94 Points: “The 2021 Chardonnay Cuvée Alyce is a classic Stephen Hansel wine. It offers notable richness but also a great deal of transparency. Hansel blends two variations of Wente Clone Chardonnay (Hyde and Hudson) with some clone 76 for his Cuvée Alyce, a Chardonnay that exudes class.”

Winemaker Notes: “Cuvee Alyce Chardonnay tends to offer big, rich, and "over the top" flavors.”
