at Great Rose Tasting on Saturday
Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Wine Advocate) 91 points
Tucked away in a private valley in the ancient village of Correns,
Miraval's exclusive valley location embodies an exceptional terroir, the expression of the soil, the climate and the history of the land, that is, the essence of the wine.
Beautiful, pale, petal-pink color, elegant with bright nuances. A beautiful aromatic expression of fresh fruit and spring flowers, refreshing acidity,
with great minerality and a saline finish. $23.
|To Go with Your Turmeric and Ginger Laden Brain Food!!
Araucano Carmenere Reserva 2015
This probably sounds a little counter intuitive.
Stand by for September Laurel of Asheville
Meanwhile, Araucano is a steal at $13.99.
|Les Cellier des Chenes 100% Jacquere
Savoie, a quintessentially alpine region bordering Switzerland.
Located in Apremont, Winemaker Willy Blanc makes wine the traditional way. This 100% Jacquer goes through malolactic fermentation giving the wine a round, creamy quality. Intense and crisp, this wine concentrates great acidity and citrus flavors. It's zesty, bright and fresh lightly salty character.
At 11.5% alcohol, this bottle perfect for brunch.
