Red wine. Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. 85-year-old vines planted on soils of clay-limestone. Whole cluster fementation give the wines a spicy herbaceous character that layers over raspberry, red and black cherries. The wine shows great breadth and focus now but will age well for a number of years. Try it with roasted duck with a current sauce or a chateaubriand with red wine reduction and roasted mushrooms.
Red wine. Priorat, Spain. Biodynamic. 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Merlot, 10% Carignan. "There is unusual and unexpected freshness in the 2017 Martinet Bru, produced from three vineyards planted with different varieties that co-fermented in concrete. It matured in oak foudres and barriques (25%), with a few months at the end in terracotta amphorae. It's very relaxed and harmonious, approachable but not banal, with fine tannins." — 92 Points, Luis Guiterrez, Wine Advocate #244 (Aug. 2019)
Domaine Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Cuvee Imperiale 2016
Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Biodynamic. 90% Grenache, Field blend. "The flagship is the Grenache-dominated 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Imperiale, which comes from vines planted in 1902 and was destemmed and aged in concrete tanks. Awesome notes of blackberries, blueberries, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite all emerge from this tight, full-bodied, concentrated and backward Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Possessing incredible purity of fruit, a concentrated yet fresh, structured profile, and a huge finish, it just needs time to shine." — 97+ Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com (Aug. 2018)
