2012 Clean Slate Riesling ($10) A remarkable value, this refreshing, lightly sweet Riesling is named for the slate soils that define Germany's prestigious Mosel region.

2012 Dopff & Irion Cuvée René Dopff Pinot Blanc ($15) Pinot Blanc rarely gets the attention that other Alsace grapes do, but this bottle commands it. This is zippy and creamy and incredible with food, all at once.

2012 Marius Rouge ($12) Renowned Rhône winemaker Michel Chapoutier's single-vineyard Hermitages need decades of cellaring, but his easygoing, screw-capped blend of Syrah and Grenache is sold ready to pour.
