Perdu, Picpoul (2018)
- Grape: Picpoul
- Geography: Languedoc-Roussillon, France
- Appellation: Picpoul de Pinet
From sustainably farmed vineyards near the Bassin of Thau, the vines face the morning sun. Dry and cold wind blows away the clouds and dries out the soils. This lack of water is partially balanced by the sea sprays coming from the Bassin of Thau, the region’s oyster capital. This terroir gives birth to elegant and aromatic white wines. Picpoul de Pinet is a late ripening grape and harvest takes place end September, into October. Night harvested in order to preserve aromas and freshness. Immediate pressing and cold settling at a very low temperature. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged on the fine lees with occasional batonnage
Domaine Moutard-Diligent, Bourgogne Pinot Noir (2017)
- Grape: Pinot Noir
- Geography: Burgundy, France
- Appellation: Bourgogne
The Moutard-Diligent family has been making wine in the village of Buxeuil since the 17th century. Their specialty is well-aged bubbly made primarily from Pinot Noir grown in Champagne’s southern-most region of Côtes des Bars. Domaine Moutard-Diligent also has 60-acres in the villages of Epineuil and Tonnerois, where they make classically dry & fresh Bourgogne Rouge. Though this northern outpost of Burgundy is known more for white wines, Pinot Noir flourishes just ten miles north-east of Chablis. Francois Moutard crafts his 2017 with fruit from 20 to 60-year-old vines, then matures the wine for nearly eight months in 50% stainless steel vats and 50% in 228L neutral oak vats. Minimal fining, filtration, and sulfur are used.
Flavor Profile: Medium-bodied, dry. Flush with raspberry on the nose and throughout the palate. Crunchy berry flavor on a dry finish of minerals, tannin, and bright acidity. Pair with lean meats, charcuterie, cheeses, and summer fare.
Ciu Ciu, Rosso Piceno Bacchus (2018)
- Grapes: Sangiovese and Montepulciano
- Geography: Marche, Italy
- Appellation: Rosso Piceno
The Ciù Ciù Organic winery is located in the heart of the Piceno hills, at Offida (Ascoli Piceno), in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production area and its vineyards extend over an area of 150 hectares.
This ruby red wine, with purple shades tending to orange is a product of Montepulciano and Sangiovese vines that are carefully grown on the Marches hills. The wine is harmoniously delicate and tannic. It is dry, full bodied and tastes faintly tannic. It expresses its finest characteristics between the first and the second year of its life, although further maturation gives it a greater equilibrium and smoothness.
Fratelli Antonio e Raimondo, Barolo (2015)
- Grape: Nebbiolo
- Geography: Piedmont, Italy
- Appellation: Barolo
