|2017 Nicolas Potel||Burgundy, France||100% Pinot Noir|
This wine has a bouquet of red cherries, fern, white flowers and spices. On the palate fine toasted notes that give way to long lasting notes of black fruits. The tannins are silky and well balanced. Great with poached eggs in red wine sauce (“oeufs meurette”) and cheese from Cîteaux Abbey.
|2018 Lunaria 'Civitas' Pecorino||Terre di Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy||100% Pecorino|
Vivid straw yellow color with greenish tinges in the glass. Bouquet of citrus & yellow fruits with hints of herbs. A well-orchestrated palate with fresh fruits, soft herbs & a subtle savory note, balanced with great acidity and a rich mouthfeel. Pairs great with seafood dishes, medium cured cheeses, pastas, and white meats.
|Gen del Alma Tupungato Ji Ji Ji (2018)||Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza||Pinot Noir & Malbec|
Ji Ji Ji has a huge vibrant nose of red fruit, violets, and caramel apple. Good acid lifts the midpalate with notes of rhubarb, red cherry, orange peel, ash, crushed stone, mushroom, gunpowder, and flint.
