Vignobles Laffourcade, Savennieres 2015
Savennieres is a highly respected white wine appellation located within the Anjou region of the Loire Valley. The wines are made from Chenin Blanc, one of the world's most underrated and underappreciated grapes and this area is renowned for producing some of the world’s best expressions of the varietal. For the uninitiated, the grape suffers a similar reputation as Riesling, being thought of as a sweeter style wine. But like Riesling, Chenin Blanc is a versatile and age-worthy grape capable of producing wines from dry to sweet and it’s naturally high acidity, makes it a great food wine. This bottle from Domaine Laffourcade is dry expression and presents notes of peach and melon a hint of honeysuckle, It's expressive, crisp and refreshing!
Gérald Dubreuil, Bugey Cerdon NV
Rosé season has arrived and for our final bottle, we offer something a little different. Bugey is an appellation of Savoie and Cedron is one of three vineyards located in the appellation. Unlike the distinctive wines produced in Vin de Savoie, this area works exclusively with sparking rosé. These sparklers are slowly gaining a following and it's easy to see why. They are an absolute delight! Made from 100% Gamay, this bottle is light & fruity with a noticeable but not overbearing sweetness. A perfect warm weather sipper!
Tenuta Scuotto, Aglianico 2015
Tenuta Scuotto is a producer from Campania, in southern Italy. The winery was founded in 2009 by Eduardo Scuotto with an aim toward making unique yet authentic wines from indigenous grapes. He practices sustainable farming using only organic grapes and his wines are also vegan friendly. For this bottle, grapes were macerated on the skins for 10 days, fermented using natural yeasts, then aged for 12 months in stainless steel. This results in an Aglianico that delivers the typical full and savory style yet giving it a freshness that makes it more approachable than the typical rustic style that’s associated with the varietal.

Paul Beau Cognac Grande Champagne VS
The bouquet is rich and intense, with notes of banana, white peach, apple, pear and caramel, while the palate is round and almost sweet with hints of violet. An intense and aromatic nose offers hints of vanilla, banana flambé, and caramel-apple pie. This young but evolved cognac has already achieved a fine balance between wood and alcohol.
Paul Beau Cognac Grande Champagne VSOP
Golden yet bright amber. The nose is fresh and youthful with cinnamon, toasted almonds, dried cherries and figs notes evident. The palate echoes the aromas and brings spicy and nutty tones with a maple and apple thing going on. The finish is long and expansive with leathery and spicy notes carrying on for quite some time.
