2009 Magrez-Aruga Koshu

Price: $35

Why: This fresh, delicate white convinced me Japan has a future as a wine country. Made from Japanese grape variety koshu, it's an east-west project of Bordeaux chateau owner Bernard Magrez and Katsunuma winery owner Yuuji Aruga. Its lightly floral aromas and subtle citrus-and-chalk flavors have international appeal.
