2020 Chateau Laballe Terres Basses
Côtes de Gascogne, France
The Laballe Estate is located on a rare terroir: the tawny sands, famous for the production of Armagnac. The vines cover 17 hectares on clay and light soils. The history of the estate began in 1820 when the family acquired the château. The wine is made from three grapes—Colombard, Ugni Blanc (a.k.a. Trebbiano Toscano), and Gros Manseng. Imagine the ripest, juiciest yellow grapefruit or pomelo that you can. The freshest piece of fruit with no bitter or pithy elements. If this sounds appealing to you, then buy this bottle immediately! For pairings, bivalves or shellfish like clams, scallops, and shrimp but also the perfect first glass to get your palate salivating.
2019 Monte Bernardi Fiasco! Chianti 1L
Michael Schmelzer is easily one of our favourite wine producers in Italy. Not only does he craft some of the best biodynamic wines in Tuscany but he has such a deft, almost ethereal touch to winemaking. Fiasco! is his homage to those red wines from the heart of Chianti that used to arrive in wicker baskets - the table wines that landed on many an Italian dinner table. With fruit sourced from all over the region, and crucially farmed organically, Michael applies a low-intervention style to create the fresh and juicy interpretation of those wicker-basketed reds. We absolutely adore these wines because they hit us right in the sweet spot for no-frills reds with substance. The Fiasco! wines will be your new go-tos for pizza and pasta and you don't have to worry about lighting any wicker on fire!
Saint-Chinian, Languedoc, France
Mont Caroux in Saint-Chinian is nicknamed “La Femme Allongée” or “The Elongated Woman” because of its noticeable shape that can be seen from the Mediterranean Sea. This young estate started in 2007 by Jean-Paul, with vineyards growing in the shadow of the mountain on parcels of limestone and red clay. Before becoming Domaine de la Femme Allongée, Bruno Gracia operated Domaine de Tabatau. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mouvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. Long macerations, blending the free-run juice with the pressed juice and aged in tank creates a wine with a perfumed nose of red fruit and a surprisingly fresh palate with black pepper and the herbal garrigue the south of France is synonymous with. Pair with cassoulet, braised veal or beef stews, or enjoy with cured saucisson sec and hard cheeses.
