2020 Domaine de Majas Blanc
Côtes Catalanes AOC, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Tom Lubbe’s (Matassa) project with with Alain Carrère in the Côtes Catalanes in Languedoc-Roussillon. Vines are just north-east of the Pyrenees mountains in the Fenouillèdes area, 400 metres above sea level, on clay, limestone, and schist soils. The estate is run by Agnes and Alain Carrère, who aim for as little intervention as possible. Both wines are grown organically (certified since 2001), fermented with native yeasts in cement vats and bottled without filtration or fining, resulting in freshness of fruit and lively minerality. Elegant, acid and terroir driven wines.A clean and pure natural wine coming from the sensational Domaine de Majas. Macabeu, Rolle and Carignan Blanc are blended together to deliver this fine mix of citrus, stone fruit and hay that's ready to cleanse your palate and leave a lasting impression on the finish. The price-quality ratio is out of control on this one.
2018 Okro’s Wines Tsoulikouri
Sighnaghi, Eastern Georgia
Founded in 2004, Okro’s Wines focuses on producing fine natural wine from regional Eastern Georgian grape varieties. All Okro’s wines are made with traditional Georgian techniques, and grapes are harvested organically with no chemical additives. This 100% Tsolikouri, from old vines that have never been touched by chemicals. Harvested by hand, of course,with very low yields. Natural and unusual vinification for a white grape variety in Georgia: the bunches are directly pressed, no skin maceration. Here we have a "true" white wine, aged in qvevri. A surprising nose with notes of yellow apple, kernel almonds, bergamot... Talk about a refreshing cuvée! Palate: beautiful structure, both ample and with tension, beautiful length. Perfect first approach to Georgia wine culture.
2017 Quinta do Lagar Novo Arinto Reserva
This wine is the quintessential definition of what we adore about the wine world - a brilliant gem from a mostly unknown winemaking region made from an indigenous varietal that even the most accomplished sommeliers have probably never heard of. What a glorious intersection of discovering a new region and a new grape that delivers an insanely delicious result. Check the fermentation with indigenous yeasts counterbalanced by the final fermentation in used French oak before a 10-month long aging in bottle. There's a big rush of citrus here with all that fresh lime rolling across your palate alongside green apple, exotic fruits and even a hint of mint. Delicious, complex minerality goes hand in hand with the current of vibrant acidity that underpins the velvety, intense and persistent finish. What a joy this wine is and a phenomenal introduction to an under-appreciated wine region and virtually anonymous grape.
