Wines of the Week
*Each week we feature three different wines from around the globe and include a 10% discount*
~2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Durieu, Rhone, France - Chateauneuf-du-Pape is one of France's most recognizable appellations, located around the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and a few surrounding villages. Most reknowned for red wine, the region also produces stunning whites capable of cellaring, though only about 7 % of the vineyards are planted to the 6 permitted white varietals. Paul Durieu took over the domaine in the 1970s with some of the vines dating back to World War I. Much of the domaine's vines are planted to well drained soils dominated by ancient river stones, which help trap heat and maintain a more even temperature from day to night. The 2017 is blended from 80% Roussanne, 15% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Clairette resulting in aromas of chalk, stone fruit, hints of honey and melon, followed by a rich palate with bright acidity with a long finish full of big tropical fruit and lingering minerality. This wine will reward patient cellaring as it will continue to develop in the bottle over the next decade - only 250 cases produced. A great wine with pork, tuna, salmon, cured meats, and mature hard cheeses.
~2018 Tavel, Domaine Pelaquie, Rhone, France - Tavel is one of the few wine appellations most known for rose wine, though both rose and red is produced, with the rose often benefiting from aging. The Pelaquie estate dates back to the 16th century, practicing sustainable viticulture over 70 hectares in acidic sandy soils mixed with clay and limestone, now overseen by Luc Pelaquie. His Tavel is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault made in the saignee method, hand harvested and destemmed, then macerated for a few hours before being pressed.The 2018, aged for 10 months in cement, is smooth, big, and fruity with incredible intensity, showing a nose of strawberry, and green leaves, leading to big fruit flavors of cherries, red currants and raspberries, finishing with fresh mineral notes. Pairs well with fresh salads and white meats.
~2016 Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux, Chateau La Haie, Bordeaux, France - Chateau La Haie is located in the Cotes de Blaye, at the northeast of the Gironde River, hillier than the Medoc, with sandy clay soils and Atlantic influence. Francois Decombe farms all organically with some biodynamic practices producing 3 wines for a total of 18,600 bottles. The 2016 Blaye is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon displaying intense aromas of red currant, blackberry, and leather, giving way to a luscious palate full of dark red fruit, silky tannins, and bright acidity, finishing with long pure fruit flavors of raspberry and hints of eucalyptus. A great accompaniment to burgers and ribs.
