Wines of the Week
Each week, we select a few wines from our shop for a 10% discount and some spotlight as to why we think they're so great!
2021 Clos Fornelli Vin de Corse Rose, Corsica, France - Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, between the southeast coast of Provence and the west coast of Tuscany. Although it is closer to Italy, Corsica has been under French rule since 1769, though Italian origins shine through in its wines, as the most commonly cultivated varietals are Vermentino and Sangiovese (locally known as Rolle and Nielluccio, respectively). Corsica's climate is Mediterranean with higher sunshine levels and lower rainfall than mainland France, though there are a wide variety of mesoclimates due to Corsica being the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean. A majority of soil types throughout the island are granite based and rich in silica. Clos Fornelli is located on the eastern side of the island right off the Tyrrhenian Sea with 45 hectares, of which 18 are vines, all farmed organically. the rose is made from Sciacarello, which is mostly cultivated on Corsica, resulting in a medium bodied rose with notes of candied red fruits and spice, bright acidity and a subtle hint of tannins on the mid-palate. A great accompaniment to raw oysters, sashimi, and fresh salads.
2021 Macon-Pierreclos, Verget, Burgundy, France - Macon-Pierreclos wines are from the Macon appellation within the commune of Pierreclos in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy, made exclusively from either Chardonnay or Gamay. Verget is the name of the negoce owned and run by Jean-Marie Guffens, founded in 1990. He buys only hand picked grapes and all of his wines are vinified and bottled at Verget, known for a precise style with sharpness of fruit and prominent minerality. His Macon-Pierreclos shows aromas of pear and crisp orchard fruit, framed by a touch of toasty oak, followed by a medium to full bodied palate that is fleshy and muscular, with a concentrated core of ripe fruit, and succulent acids balancing the finish. Try this with sauteed scallops in a beurre blanc sauce.
2015 Margaux, Chateau Confidence de Margaux, Bordeaux, France - Margaux is one of the most highly regarded appellations in Bordeaux, located in the Haut-Medoc district, about 25 miles south of the city of Bordeaux. The appellation contains 21 cru classe properties from the 1855 Bordeaux Classification (20 of which still exist), the most esteemed of them being the first growth Chateau Margaux. Margaux is famous for producing supple, perfumed wines, predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils have a high gravel content, with less clay than Paulliac and Saint-Estephe, with a total vineyard area of 1530 hectares in the appellation. Chateau Confidence de Margaux is a tiny 2.5 hectare parcel producing just 10,000 bottles, located in a legendary triangle of vines surrounded by Chateau Palmer, Rauzan Segla, and Cantenac Brown. The wine is a superb value considering the prices of its neighbors, and it is probably only a matter of time before it is purchased and absorbed into one of its wealthier neighbors. The 2015 has a generous nose of dried fruits in brandy, hints of toasty smoke, and clove spice, followed by a palate of black currant, velvety ripe tannins, and juicy acidity. A great accompaniment to roasted chicken, mushrooms, truffle, and other earthy dishes.
