Chateau de Breze Rose Cremant De Loire $20.99
80% Cabernet Franc/20% Cabernet Sauvignon - Practicing organic and Biodynamic farming methods. Nearly no dosage - very little. - Great citrus, cranberry and red currants with wet gravel and crisp acidity. Great bubble for food, picnics, salmon, appetizers and even ceviche!
Domaine Leon Boesch Edelzwiker NV $15.99
A blend of Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, and Muscat, Boesch’s exotic, aromatic Edelzwicker (“noble blend”) combines leftover wines from the domaine’s finest parcels into a delicious, affordable cuvee. Deep green-gold in the glass Boesch’s Edelzwicker casts captivating aromas of muskmelon, passion fruit, pineapple, smoky minerals, lychee, and sweet spices. Fresh and brimming with energy, the wine presents an amalgam of Alsatian goodness with white pepper and botrytis-driven citrus and orchard fruit backed by suggestions of lemongrass, fennel, and freshly grated ginger. And its a liter bottle!
Domaine Leon Boesch Gewurztraminer 2015 $21.99
Drier than many Gewurztraminers, this is a somewhat unique dry wine with fragrant aromas and a taste that is distinctly piquant. Known in the region as the 'Emperor of Alsace', it's a not to miss Gewurztraminer, particularly if you're a fan of the variety.
Domaine de la Graveirette Cote du Rhone 2014 $15.99
Domaine de la Graveirette is a relatively small winery, with 25 hectares of organically farmed vines in the Southern Rhone valley, between Orange and Avignon, with Mont Ventoux to the east and the hills of Chateauneuf du Pape to the west. Aged for 18 months in buried concrete tanks, this is a fruit-forward 100% Grenache Cotes du Rhone with red berry freshness and spice notes, followed by a long, clear finish.
Chateau Ste. Anne Cotes du Provence 2012 $22.99
Chateau Sainte Anne's Bandol terroir is unique within Provence. The proximity to the sea and strong winds between the steep hills have created a microclimate which makes it possible to plant and grow on terraces in spite of the punishing summer heat. This is why Mourvèdre, a variety which struggles to ripen elsewhere, is at home here. A nose or red and purple fruits, which carry through to the palate and marry with savory herbs and gravelly earth, followed by long, supple tannins.
Domaine de la Graveirette Jue de Vie 2016 $10.99
A complex yet easy drinking wine that's focused on red fruits and subtle tannins and balanced
with lighter notes and freshness. Velvety texture and a pleasant, long finish.
