Prébrende Beaujolais Vielles Vignes

Prébrende Beaujolais Vielles Vignes

Prébrende Beaujolais Vielles Vignes, a clear reddish-purple wine from Gamay Noir grapes, bursts with exuberant strawberry fruit. It seems simple at first, but cleansing acidity and soft tannins provide structure, and an intriguing red-clay minerality builds in the long finish. It’s a very interesting wine, good with food, and a good value.

Loosen Bros. 2017 “Dr. L” Mosel Riesling

Loosen Bros Dr L

At just 8.5% alcohol, this Mosel Riesling falls near the lower end of the alcoholic spectrum. Very pale, clear gold in color, its light carbonation shows as a quiet pop when the screw cap is cracked and as tiny bubbles that line the glass when the wine is poured. Ripe aromas of peaches and melon fill the nose, and carry over on the palate in a juicy, gently sweet fruit flavor with brisk, cleansing acidity and subtle stone and slate minerality in the finish.

Domaine du Haut Bourg 2015 Muscadet

Domaine du Haut Bourg

Bright, transparent straw color with a distinct brassy-green hue, with a scattering of bubbles on the glass. Fresh and inviting honeydew melon scent leads into a bright flavor profile of juicy, slightly sweet white fruit.

Tommasi “Arthemis” Puglia Fiano

Tomassi Fiano

A blend of 90% Fiano grapes with 10% Chardonnay, this wine is a pale straw color. Very pleasant aroma, white flowers and a whiff of beeswax. Fresh and acidic, palate-cleansing white-fruit and orange blossom flavors follow the nose with moderate 12.5% alcohol.
