François Bouchet of Chateau Falfas became the first biodynamically-certified grower in France. His daughter Veronique now heads up the estate and makes some of the most interesting, least stodgy, and cleanest Right Bank bottlings around - on a farmstead scale that you typically find in off-the-beaten-path regions, not fancy Bordeaux.  We're loving her 'Demoiselles de Falfas' entry-level wine, a bright, next-gen Bordeaux blend that skips the oak aging and allows pure, plush, Merlot-dominated fruit to shine. If you're popping a bottle nightly these days (because, Quarantini), this one makes an excellent food wine -- and will definitely elevate your wine-with-dinner game.  It's drinking perfectly now, and pairs beautifully with everything from tacos and nachos to grilled meat and veg.
