June Wine Case

La Croix Gratiot Desir Blanc
Just outside of Montpellier, the 27 hectares for the La Croix Gratiot estate is made up of limestone and clay soils. The Mediterranean climate help bring the grapes to maturity and the natural streams that run through the vineyards and surrounding bushes and shrubs add biodiversity as well. This blend of Viognier, Chardonnay, Roussanne and Muscat, each varietal vinified separately and then blended for bottling, begins with a nose that is rich and complex, mixing some fruits (peach, apricot), muscat flavors, white flowers and ripe banana - real aromatic explosion, with lot of freshness, vivacity for this wine delicate and stylish with a nice crispy balance.

Mencos Blanco
Mencos is owned by the Manso de Zuniga family whose origins date back to the Visigoths. Ignacio who is the descendent from this wine makes the wines under the Conde de Hervias label. In 2010 Inigo released Mencos as a second label to compliment his flagship Conde de Hervias wine. The philosophy behind this second label is to produce classic yet modern style Rioja. Mencos comes from a beautiful parcel of vines that are over 30 years old and on the south side of the Ebro River in Torremontalvo. The vineyard, with chalky clay over gravel is well suited to Viura. The blanco is 100% Viura from 30+ year old vines, non certified biodynamic farming. The nose shows bruised yellow pear and apple with tart hints of Myer lemon and mango, white flower and delicate herbs.

Olmedal Verdejo
From the Rueda region this 100% Verdejo is incredibly dry and refreshing. Bright and crisp with notes of apple blossom, passion fruit and white peach it has a kick of acidity that dances across the palate. It is a perfect pair for salads, fresh fruit, goat cheese and grilled chicken.

Mirial Colombard
From the Cotes du Gascogne, a designation used for Vine de Pays produced in Armagnac, these sustainably grown Colombard grapes are planted at very high density to reduce yields and drive the development of flavor. Owner Charles Hochman harvests his grapes at night to prevent heat damage and minimize oxidation from the heat of the autumn sun. The fresh young wine even looks refreshing, with a light green hue to its pale yellow. The aromas hint at the sea shell and peach with a brisk lime zest lift. The palate is zippy and crisp with flavors of lime skin, apple, white peach and a chalky earthiness to the finish. There is a creamy note to the wine as well as a limey salinity that makes this a perfect pair for oysters or any shellfish.

Chateau Saintongey Blanc
Lively aromas of fresh herbs, minerals, figs, and orange peel jump out of the glass. This wine is clean, juicy and penetrating, yet quite supple, with ripe citrus and fig notes adding to its complex nature. It exhibits a wonderful balance as well as very good flavor intensity and length. A classic wine for seafood, or fowl and it would work very well with appetizers. This is a new discovery for us and it continues to amaze us for the sheer value it represents. Elegance like this is hard to find even in wines more expensive than this.

Cavalo Preto Torrontes
From Mendoza Argentina, this indigenous white varietal is truly unique. With hints of peach pit, flowers, and orange citrus fruit this magnificent white has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavors that keep you coming back for another sip. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry; it is best enjoyed in its youth either by itself, or as a wonderful partner with smoked meats, mild to medium-strong cheeses, and seafood. Great partner for spicy food and Thai as well.

Herbauges Chardonnay
Situated 7.5 miles from Nantes, within a triangle between the Atlantic Ocean, the Loire River and the Lake of Grand Lieu. Created in 1864, the estate has been run by the Choblet family for five generations. Nowadays, two generations of the family are still sharing and providing their respective experience to the profit of this great vineyard, certainly the most prestigious and reputed of the Muscadet Côtes de Grand Lieu Appellation. While using up to date technologies to allow separate vinification and expression of the richness and diversity of each precise “terroir” and parcel, the Choblet family pays particular attention to and respects the environment. Since 1980 the entire vineyard has been cultivated using sustainable agriculture practices. Not often found in the market, this is 100% un-oaked old vine (40 year+) Chardonnay. Ripe and filled with lovely aromas and flavors of ripe pears, quince, and apples, this is a joy to drink. Medium-bodied, fresh and showing great purity, this wine is nicely fruit-driven and ends on a refreshingly clean note.

Vieux Clocher Cotes du Ventoux
“On the flanks of the Mont Ventoux, under the Provence sun and the humming of cicadas, is the Ventoux’s vineyard. This terroir of garrigues offers welcoming wines exhibiting southern France flavors. Little-known, they only unveil their charm to the connoisseurs.” The grapes come from the slopes of Mont Ventoux, a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault with a bouquet of subtle red fruits with a touch of spice and earthiness.

Mas Montel Cuvee Psalmodi
The family estate situated between Nimes and Montpellier, only 25 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea, spreads across 55 hectares. The goal of Dominique and Jean Philippe Granier, the estates owners, is to respect the ancestral traditions of this unique environment while using the improvements of the current production and vinification techniques. The blend of Merlot, Grenache and Syrah is hand harvested using these sustainable agricultural practices. The noise is all blackberries, fresh peppers, plums and crystallized fruits. These flavors carry over beautifully to the palate with spicy notes on a long finish, perfect for your next BBQ party.

Domaine La Bouysse Roc Long Corbieres
Situated in Saint Andres de Roquelongue, the heart of the Corbiers region, this family estate totals 50 hectares of mostly sandstone, pebbles and sandy soil. They are three years into their organic conversion. The blend, of predominantly Grenache and a small percentage of Syrah, is vinified under semi carbonic processing. Once blended and aged in oak this wine is convivial and very fruity with bright aromatics and delicately spicy with great garrigues notes.

Chateau Saintongey Rouge
A worthy, everyday Bordeaux at the right price! No, this wine isn’t one of the region’s fancy crus classés that require a decade or more of cellar aging to be at their best. Château Saintongey is a simple Bordeaux rouge for everyday drinking from the vast area south of the city of Bordeaux called Entre Deux Mers. It’s the kind of attractive inexpensive Bordeaux red that the French enjoyed with Sunday dinner a couple of decades ago and that turned up on wine lists at French bistros in the U.S. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a California Cabernet or Merlot or an Argentine Malbec that’s as balanced and pleasurable to drink for the same price as this Château Saintongey. A classic Bordeaux blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, it is full of fruit with a nice rich palate capable of accompanying most meat dishes. This wine is filled with fruit and offers plenty of dark cherry in its Merlot character, soft tannins, medium body, and excellent purity. Enjoy this wine over the next year with burgers, roasts and even a nice rib-eye steak.

Chateau Le Bost
This family estate has been producing since 1610. Chateau Le Bost is located in Saint Meard de Gurcon in Perigord, 48 miles west of Bergerac, Sustainably farmed and hand harvested. The nose of this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon is reminiscent of black and blue fruit with notes of dark plum and black current, licorice and soft spicy notes carry through on the palate with silky tannins and full fruit.
