Profile

Whether you’re looking for a bargain bottle or a rare Burgundy, Chiyoung Chung’s corner wine shop has you covered with its 5,000 brands. Nephew Billy Kim manages and stocks the store, but his palate’s partiality to old-world flavors never gets in the way of his being comprehensive with New World vintages, too. Check out the well-balanced 2004 Barwick Pinot Noir from Western Australia or some lesser-known bottles from Slovenia and Lebanon. Despite his global concessions, Beacon’s real strength lies in its French and Italian holdings, which are helpfully subdivided by region. (It’s easy to locate Chianti from Tuscany or a Loire Valley Sancerre here.) You’ll also find shelves devoted to kosher wines and myriad sakes plus a delivery dictum Kim compares to Domino’s pizza: Phone orders should arrive in a half-hour at most. Since most bottles run under $15, you can afford to tip well.

Extra

Fans of organic wines will also delight in the shop’s collection no-sulfites-added bottles, mainly from California.
