Located in the south of Beaujolais, Jean-Baptiste runs his family estates and vineyards with a level of care and thought for the lands only matched by the attention to detail in the winemaking. Ripe and vibrant on the nose, with raspberry, bubblegum and cola notes mixing with some underbrush and earth. The palate is juicy and mouthfilling, but balanced by lively acidity. The red fruits are sweet and sour, but there are earthy, mushroom notes as well. Glou-Glou” means “glug glug" which is both a motto for this wine and a call to action. Serve lightly chilled and don't overthink the pairings here.
NV Domaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray Brut
A traditional method sparkler grown on flint and calcareous soils, fermented in a mix of tanks and older barriques, aged 24-30 months before disgorgement with 4g/L of dosage. In non-technical terms, this has great age, no sweetness and a clean, crisp flavour profile. There's a bready characteristic that stems from the lees aging, ripe lemon and lemon zest, savoury, crisp apples, a hint of exotic fruit and a racy, minerally edge to it that is emblematic of the Loire soils where the grapes are grown. Elegant bubbles with flavour, ripeness and texture that won't break the bank. What more could you ask for?
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.
