Domaine du Vissoux Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Nature NV – Beaujolais, France – 100% Chardonnay – 12% abv – Sustainable – All Chardonnay from a top producer in Beaujolais, Pierre-Marie Chermette’s Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Nature has a wet earth and truffle characteristic to go with pretty brioche, apple and hints of nuttiness. Medium-bodied, juicy and crisp, it is fresh and lively, and has plenty of charm.
Marc Plouzeau Château de la Bonnelère “Les Devants” 2015 – Touraine - Loire Valley, France – 100% Sauvignon Blanc – 12.5% abv – Organic – Very pale color in the glass. Displays a big nose of flowers, lemons, minerals, and sea shells. The palate shows tart lemons, lots of minerals and focused acid. It is very precise, with solid length on the finish.

Domaine Saladin “Loï” 2011 – Ardèche – Rhône Valley, France – Mostly Grenache (red and white), some Syrah and Carignan – 14% abv – Organic – A finesse-driven effort, this sports plenty of smoked black fruits, cherry, new leather, licorice, wild herbs and loamy earth qualities as well as a medium-bodied, focused and firm feel on the palate. Impressive, with solid mid-palate depth.
