WINES OF THE WEEK
L'Effet Papillon Blanc 2016
ippy and fresh, harvested from the iron-rich soil just outside of Rivesaltes. It is a terrific little white - a blend of 90% Grenache Blanc and 10% Macabeu - jasmine-scented and loaded with fresh melon and apricot fruit. In the mouth, the fruit is exotic and the finish, crisp and fine. Pair with just about anything. It's a great candidate for a house wine and perfect for large gatherings.
Château La Rouge Pic Saint Loup
65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre
Perhaps it's the horse-farmed, chemical-free vineyards, far from present-day pollutants, or perhaps it's the minimalist winemaking and unfiltered bottling, but there is something timeless to La Roque's Pic Saint Loup, its herbal bouquet and rich, fleshy texture, all free from any hint of modern trappings.
Caneva Da Nani Prosecco NV
Naturally refermented white sparkling wine made with 'Glera' must. After a maturation in vats it is then bottled and thanks to a specific temperature (15-18°C) the yeast ferments the residual sugars, saturating the wine into bubbles. At the end of this biological process that lasts about 60 days, the yeast settles at the bottom of the bottle leaving that unmistakable, unique and true natural preservative that leads to the evolution of the product's organoleptic characteristics. We recommend to pour the wine in the jar leaving the sediments in the bottle.
