Chenas Quartz 2014 Domaine Piron-Lameloise

Descriptions:

 Chénas is the smallest Beaujolais Cru by surface area. This comes from a nine-hectare parcel of vines of more than 60 years of age on a steep, east- facing slope between 310 and 380 metres up, that Piron runs with the three Michelin-starred Lameloise restaurant in Chagny. They are all pruned in the traditional goblet (head-pruned) style of Beaujolais. The harvest is done entirely by hand. Only manual harvesting is allowed in the Beaujolais region.

100% Gamay – A full-on nose of spice, earth and prettiness is mirrored on a palate that seems to bring together notes of lilac and peony before unveiling mature tannins. Supple, generous and vibrant, with graphite and deeply scented red fruits.

A real stunner. Pairs well with rich, complex sauces and grilled meats.

Accolades:
90 points Gismondi on Wine “Rock juice. That's what this wild ferment Chénas is like, living up to its Quartz name. Dominique Piron is the 14th generation winemaker at the family estate. Woodsy, spice notes open, with subtle earthy smoke, dark florals, wild black plum, black cherry, black raspberry laid across a textured stream bed of stones. Tannins are slightly grippy and acids are bright and shining through to a fine peppery finish. Quite structured, this would hold up to roasted pork tenderloin or grilled sausages.”

Vallon des Cigales Reserve Provence Rosé 2018

Descriptions:

Vallon des Cigales draws its name from the vines that grow in a small valley at the very heart of the appellation. When the warm days of summer arrive in Provence, the air is filled with the love songs of the male cicadas insects, named “Cigales” in French, that thrive in the woods around the vines. Love is in the air.

TASTING NOTES:

Beautiful, brilliant pale pink colour. Subtle nose offering delicious aromas of red fruits, red currant and black currant. The mouth-feel is extremely pleasant opening with floral notes. It is fruity with a refreshing and remarkably long finish.

Pairs with most foods, fairly effortlessly, it’s especially wonderful with seafood and BC spot prawns.

The Domaine Saint-Férréol estate, family owned since 1720, is situated deep in the countryside of Var, overlooking the vast plains of Pontevès, at the foot of the Bessillons peaks in Provence. Coteaux Varois en Provence is the smallest appellation in Provence, the most mountainous and furthest from the sea.The soil is clay-limestone which produces fresh, fruity wine. The varietals of the 2016 Rosé are Grenache (40%), Syrah (25%) Cinsault (15%) Carignan (15%) and Ugni-Blanc (5%)

Tasting Notes :

“Bright pink coral color. Fresh, fruity aromas of strawberry, kiwi, petite fours, and honeyed rice cake with a crisp, dry medium body and an interesting, medium-long kiwi, cherry stem, peach mango yogurt, and basil finish with clunky, chewy, fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A fresh, fruity, and tropical rose that will shine at the table.“

Traditional vinification at low temperature allows optimal extraction of aromas creating an intense nose of red fruits (wild strawberries and raspberry) and citrus (orange) wrapped in a classic pastel pink colour. All with a soft mouth feel offering freshness and aromatic persistence in the spirited soul of this dry rosé with tangy flavours of white currants. Presented in a satin finish bottle.
