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!
2018 Pernand-Vergelesses 'Les Combottes,' Domaine Marius Delarche, Burgundy, France - Domaine Marius Delarche is a small multi-generational family property, currently overseen by Etienne Delarche, in the hills of Pernand-Vergelesses covering 9 hectares of sustainably farmed vineyards. Etienne produces a handful of single vineyard offerings of both red and whites from Pernand-Vergelesses (including four 1er crus), and wines from the grand crus of Corton-Charlemagne, Le Corton, and Corton-Renardes. Les Combottes covers .9 hectares of 35 year old vines in chalk and clay soils, with the grapes being destemmed and delicately pressed before undergoing fermentation in old oak barrels with a total of 330 cases being produced in 2018.
This 100% Chardonnay is creamy and concentrated with aromas of light spice, crushed stones and lemon zest, with a tense yet light palate giving way to flavors of apples, lemons and a slightly peppery finish. The wine will reward patient cellaring over the next 5 years as secondary characteristics will balance the fresh youthful zestiness. It is a great pairing with oysters, shellfish, and tangy cheeses.
2018 Patrimonio 'Cru des Agriate,' Domaine Giacometti, Corsica, France - Corsica consists of mostly rugged landscapes and isolated areas with the village of Patrimonio being located in the Agriates Desert, a large empty swath of land between the Cap Corse and Calvi on the northern end of the island, with only one paved road. It's swept year round by the Libecciu, a hot and dry wind that rolls down off the Italian coast. The wind, combined with the clay-granite soils makes growing anything here laborious, with the vines requiring constant plowing to allow the roots to forage deep for water and nutrients. The Giacometti family moved here in 1987, taking over vines that were planted in 1966, producing natural wines organically. The Cru des Agriate is a blend of 97% Niellucciu (genetically similar to Sangiovese) and 3% Grenache, aged in stainless, resulting in a dense nose of ripe cherry, fig, clove and cistus, followed by a rich, yet lifted, mouthfeel with ample tannic structure with layers of red fruits and spice, finishing with fine, grainy tannins and more ripe fruit. A great accompaniment to slow roasted meats with mushrooms, and with aged, firm, cheeses.
2018 Zulal Areni Reserve, Vayots Dzor, Armenia - Vayots Dzor is a mountainous province in southeastern Armenia and one of the oldest documented wine producing regions in the world. It contains the most wineries of any province, many of which lie in the Areni Valley. The vineyards lie mainly between 950 and 1,200 meters above sea level with around 1,200 hectares under vine. The soils are largely volcanic and well drained. Zulal was founded in 2017, sourcing grapes from approximately 40 growers in the villages of Aghavnadzor, Rind, and the Arpa Valley. The high elevation, volcanic soils, and temperature fluctuation give the native varietals their distinctive character. The reserve is aged in French and Caucasian oak barrels, showing concentrated aromas of ripe red berries, plum, spice, framed by a full bodied palate with refreshing acidity and silky tannins. It is a great pairing with aged cheeses, braised beef, or barbecued lamb.
2013 Prima Pietra, Tuscany, Italy - Prima Pietra is a 200 hectare estate in Riparbella, located just north of the famous Bolgheri region on the Tuscan coast, home to Tuscany's most famous 'Super Tuscans,' started in the early 1970s with plantings of non traditional Tuscan (usually Bordeaux) varietals. Prima Pietra is farmed organically, producing one wine, blended from 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot, from pebble gravel and iron rich clay soils, benefiting from cool coastal breezes. The nose is bursting with aromas of wild red berry, followed by a palate of plum and black cherry, with hints of chocolate, wild herb and tar, finishing with well integrated tannins and lingering flavors of plum and tobacco. The 2013 will reward patient cellaring, reaching full potential over the next decade or so. A great accompaniment to dry aged steak or leg of lamb.
