Wines We're Tasting This Week
Domaine Pierre Richard - Cremant de Jura - Rose’ Brut
"Perles D' Automne" is a salmon pink sparkling wine from the Jura region of France. It has a lively and refreshing character with pronounced flavors of ripe red berries, a touch of tartness, and a crisp, zesty finish. This elegant Cremant de Jura rosé is perfect for celebrations and as an aperitif.
Vignerons des Florensac - Picpoul de Pinet
This Picpoul de Pinet is exceptional. Salty seaside, lemon rind, white flowers, hibiscus, macadamia, peach pit on the nose. Peach fuzz and orange citrus fight for attention on a beautifully minerally and bright palate with saline undertones + lemony finish.
Duport - Vin de France “Celine”
40% Chardonnay. 40% Gamay, 20% Mondeuse
The color here is a deep rhubarb. The nose is a pungent display of wild fruits - blackberry, cherry, and blueberry. On the palate, the wine has flavors of ripe red currants, small plums, and a touch of zingy citrus. A minerally core adds dimension to a fruity, juicy mouthfeel. The wine is fermented naturally, spending 3 weeks in stainless steel tanks.
Domaine Dupperay Glou Glou Gamay Beaujolais
Glou Glou is an expression given to a wine that is
supremely drinkable: And Jean-Baptiste's Glou Glou is drinkability incarnate.
Made from 100% Gamay fermented whole-cluster in cement. Light purple color with expressive aromas of cherry, strawberry and a light note of spice.
Light body with vibrant acidity ~ Perfect for a picnic, light dinner or evening with friends.
