Clos Bellane Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas 2017 750ml
Clos Bellane Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas 2017 750ml
Price: $21.99

2017 challenged Rhône’s wine growers with frost, but Clos Bellane’s ’17 Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas is a winner, reflecting the vintage with intensity and focus. Succulent red berries and brambly blue fruits mingle with warm loam, peppery spices, licorice, game, mushrooms and raspberry jam in this earthy, beguiling wine. Fine-grained tannins and zesty acidity match the wine’s sweet fruits, while a seductive savory minerality lingers on the wine’s finish. Clos Bellane’s entry-level red is almost equal mixture of Grenache and Syrah that derive from vines aged thirty years or more organically grown in limestone-rich soils; grapes are partially destemmed before fermenting with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matures in a combination of concrete vats and neutral aged barrels. more info

Domaine Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 750ml
Price: $26.99

Rich, pulsating, and delicious this ’15 Bourgogne Blanc embraces its Cinderella growing season with acidic verve and an opulent texture. Very nearly a Meursault, this organically grown wine layers classic Meursault notes of lemon curd, lime leaf, saline spray, stone fruits, and hazelnut. Powerful but delineated, this creamy wine glides to a resonant crescendo, and as terrific as it is right now, it’ll drink wonderfully over the medium term. Deriving from clay-rich, mineral-laden parcels located within the Meursault appellation, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled tanks, and the wine ages for ten to twelve months in barrique, 15% new, before resting in tanks for five or six months before bottling. more info

Xavier Weisskopf Le Rocher des Violettes Montlouis Petillant Originel 2015 750ml
Price: $26.99

Bracing, elegant and food-friendly, the ’15 Petillant Originel holds its white-flesh fruits in an acidic grip that’s sprinkled with citrus zest and topped with flower petals and smoke. Fine perlage tickles the tongue as this wine dances to a lingering, mineral-laden finish that cleanses, refreshes and hugs the palate. Deriving from 40-year-old Chenin vines that are organically grown in limestone-rich soil, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine is then bottled and rests on the lees for two years before the first disgorgement, after which the wine is disgorged every two months for a total of six disgorgements. Petillant Originel is a tiny sparkling wine appellation that stipulates extremely low yields, excludes the addition of yeast or dosage, and requires the grapes have a potential alcohol level of 11.5%; the resulting wines are pure, unadulterated joy! more info
