Bubbles that make you go 'Hmmmm....'
Suenen 'C+C' Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Extra-Brut Champagne$74.99
There's just something about placing a new Champagne on our shelves that makes us want to SING! (C+C fan, anyone?). A brisk, punchy and persistent Champagne with intoxicating notes of lemon oil and apricot with a brush of chalky minerality. Tip: Gift this to Mom on Mother's Day, and you may get to try a glass! (We wouldn't be surprised if she solely sacrifices a sip.)
La Boutanche: Le Sot de l'Ange Pet-Nat Blanc NV, Loire Valley, FR $28.99
The La Boutanche wines are BACK! Consistently lively, vibrant and bright, La Boutanche wines are sourced from natural wine producers around Europe. Amazing values, but highly allocated, so get 'em while you can! This a a zesty, bubbly blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay from Quentin Bourse. This is our go to summer bubble.
Complex, Irresistible Whites
Oliver Lejeune ‘Poïèsis’ Anjou, Loire Valley, FR 2017 $35.99
One word: Exotic.The rich, black schist soils of Anjou are reflected in this powerful Chenin – its lush palate is complemented by a core of mouthwatering acidity, keeping it aloft. The notes of poached pear, herbs and spices dance on the palate, making us fall even more in love with this chameleon of a grape.
Dirty and Rowdy 'Skin and Concrete Egg Sémillon' California, USA 2018 $38.99
In the words of Hardy (winemaker): Salt. Acid. Vibration. Dirty & Rowdy's skin-contact Sémillon makes its return after FOUR YEARS. Wonderful texture coupled with a lemony, acidic backbone and fennel will make you tremble with delight. We think these steamed mussels and this wine NEED each other. Make it happen.
Chill Reds...to Chill
Stolpman Vineyards 'Love you Bunches' Carbonic Sangiovese, California, USA 2018 $26.99
We love this wine BUNCHES! Crushable, quaffable, smashable–whichever you prefer! Sangiovese is an Italian grape that we will forever hold in our hearts. You'll fall head over heels after tasting its notes of juicy, tart cherry and zesty tangerine. Make sure to grab multiple bottles and a pizza. This one will go fast.
La Boutanche: Weingut Knauss Trollinger, Germany, 2018 $24.99
La Boutanche strikes again! ONE LITER of lip-smacking Trollinger from Germany, a grape that's simply meant to be guzzled. Imagine what freshly-picked strawberries dusted with rose petals tastes like, and you'll arrive at this bottle. Drink this, and you'll be having just as fun as the the tipsy grasshopper on the label!
