Tasting Notes: Golden color, almost amber. Distinct smoky and dried fruit hints, apricot, fig and dates with a hint of almond. Savory and fresh in the mouth, with an almost oily fullness and a salty finish.
Tasting Notes: Cuddling in the meadow - what a calm, mild, flattering meadow scent, bright fruit, herbs, quite dreamy, like caresses, associated with a sense of well-being, a touch of nut, and a small exciting shiver, delicate mineral, tart tones. Harmony. Also on the palate: caressing, very delicate touches, flowing movements, everything so fine, the ripe acidity, the bright light yellow, greenish fruit brushes the palate, the fresh, slightly tart, chalky tones like a cool breeze, everything so delicate, so harmonious, there is no imbalance, no urging, no demanding, this is just being, delicately touched, light creamy, and in thought, yet so light. Wonderfully coherent, light Bourgogne Aligoté, of delicate, almost creamy flow.
Tasting Notes: After settling in the family barn belonging to his great-uncle, a farmer, Jérôme François created Uncle Charles' barn. The estate was thus born in early 2014 in Ostheim. No less than a dozen grape varieties to express, beyond the diversity of their character, the true identity of the terroir that gives them life: a rare Alsace white, with a complexity and minerality that appeals to wine lovers.
Tasting Notes: An everyday white wine that's floral and fruity on the nose. Very clean, especially considering the very low intervention winemaking. On the palate it's surprisingly complex and full-bodied, with a good acidity and minerality. Long, slightly fruity finish.
Tasting Notes: Fresh, light and lean. Notes of zesty citrus brighten up the minerality brought by the silty soil where this Chenin grows. Almost astringent, mega dry, and pleasantly austere acidity. A dazzling color, liveliness, fruit, a beautiful balance and bite, enough to be enjoyed right away.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful balance between tension and complexity. The nose, deep and complex, reveals buttery aromas. The attack, ample and fat, then lets express a superb minerality very typical of schist soils and beautiful citrus notes reminiscent of candied lemon.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, earthy notes dominate, with dark cherries, herbs and a bit of iron in the background. On the palate it's savory and quite rich, but very juicy and not heavy. A rustic red wine that is fun but not funky.
Tasting Notes: Intense red color with purple hues. In the nose, there are ripe cherries, a touch of almond and a little cinnamon. It’s not too sweet, though, thanks to a leafy, peppery note in the background. On the palate it is immediately pleasant and juicy, with a nice fresh acidity and a minerality to contrast the sweet fruit.
Tasting Notes: Blanc de Noirs of the historical Fleury's maison is a Champagne which contains in just one sip vigor and elegance. A Pinot Noir vinified in purity according to the precepts of biodynamic agriculture composed of at least 25% of reserve wines that give the glass that typical and unmistakable trait of the domaine of origin. Freshness and refined fruit on the nose, give way to an intense, refined and beautifully fragrant sip.
Tasting Notes: Les Bois Guyon is Francois' Cabernet Franc from 80 year old vines grown in limestone. The handpicked grapes are de-stemmed, macerated on skins for 10 days then pressed into 400 litres barrels where it ages for 2 and a half years before bottling. An enchanting and ethereal wine with lifted, floral aromatics and savoury game, wood and mineral notes on the palate.
Tasting Notes: A juicy, easy-drinking carbonic maceration Syrah from the south of France, with spice and berry on the nose. Vinified by Michael Georget from the Domaine du Temps Retrouvé for the Vins & Volailles company, founded by Parisian wine saleswoman Fleur Godart, as part of a series of wines to take a stance against sexism, racism and homophobia called "Les Cuvées Militantes".
Tasting Notes: Direct vertical pressing. Fermentation completely with native yeasts in open concrete vats. No use of SO2 before setting.
Aging in barrels on fine lees for 8 months. Bottling, if possible, without fining or filtration. Maximum SO2 addition of 30ppm at setting
Taste characteristics: The Brézème terroir gives this Roussanne a particular character and elegance, often expressed by a touch of salinity (like certain Arvines from Valais). An absolutely enticing and delicious wine.
Tasting Notes: No destemming and maceration of the grapes with a submerged cap. Only native yeasts for fermentation. No use of SO2 before setting.
Aging in large vats and 600 liter oak barrels called in the Rhone valley ‘Demi-Muid’, on fine lees for 14 to 18 months. Bottling without fining or filtration.
Taste characteristics: This cold climate Syrah gives notes of violet, blackcurrant leaves and sometimes very intense black olives. The balance is acid / tannin during the first few years, rounding off with 2 to 3 years of aging.
Very "wild" wine with a strong personality. Rustic and rounded cuisine during its youth. Game on evolution.
Tasting Notes: This Champagne Brut Ullens is the first Cuvee produced by Domaine de Marzilly which consists of a blend of 56% Meunier, 37% Chardonnay and 7% Pinot Noir. The base harvest from the year 2015 and with 42% of 'vin de reserve'. The vinification takes place exclusively in oak barrels during 36 months on its own yeasts.
With the dosage of 4gr. /l. this champagne is an extra brut. On the nose this champagne has floral hints which evolve into yellow fruit in the glass. On the palate it is bright, exciting and complex.
Tasting Notes: This cuvée benefits from a whole bunch maceration of 3 weeks. The wine is aged in old barrels for 4 months. This bottle is capped because it has residual sugar left that could have recreated a fermentation that did not take place. The nose is frank with aromas of spices, honey, liquor and exotic fruits. The attack is on sugar followed by a touch of acidity then a very hot side (alcoholic), a touch of bitterness and tannins that lead to a warm and sweet aftertaste.
