2010 André Beaufort Brut Champagne ($60)
“Rich but balanced. Beaufort uses essential oils in the vineyards as aromatherapy for the vines, a twist on natural winemaking I’d never come across.”

2014 La Clarine Farm Sierra Foothills Albariño ($22)
“This fresh, fruity, unfiltered white is low on the funk factor that sometimes characterizes natural wines.”

2014 Les Vins Contés R14 Vin de France ($18)
“Olivier Lemasson trained with Hervé Villemade, one of the Loire’s leaders in organics. His R14 is great for anyone wanting to try a funkier red.”

NV Frantz Saumon La Petite Gaule du Matin ($22)
“This sparkling wine from the Loire is a crisp, dry, fog-cutting antidepressant.”

2013 Julien Sunier Fleurie ($33)
“From Beaujolais, where the natural-wine revolution began; it’s perfumed, elegant and protean in the glass.”

NV Tenute Dettori Renosu Rosso Romangia ($24)
“This Sardinian red is made from the local Cannonau grape. It’s gamey and meaty but not over the top.”
