2020 Grolleau Gris "Collection Plaisir" (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine des Herbauges, Grolleau Gris, Loire Valley, France 2020

{organic} 100% Grolleau Gris

PEACH BLOSSOM & STRAWBERRY, TONGUE-TINGLING, ZESTY MINERAL

Grolleau Gris is the lighter skinned, pink-ish variant of a once-ubiquitous Loire grape responsible for an ocean's worth of crisp rosés and light-bodied reds. We don’t encounter Grolleau-based wines as much as we once did, and Grolleau Gris is an outright rarity! Thankfully, this rendition from Jérome Choblet, while made in very limited quantities, makes up for all the years that we didn’t know we were missing the variety. Hailing from the Atlantic reaches of the Loire’s Muscadet country, this not-quite-effervescent white tingles with mouthwatering acidity, summery fruit, and that spirit of adventure that can only come from drinking wine made from exotic grapes. Cheers!

Serving Suggestion: Maki sushi w/ snapper, salmon, pickled plum, & cucumber. Vegetarian bibimbap (and other lighter, medium-spicy Korean dishes).

{sustainable} 100% Melon

LASER-FOCUSED MINERALITY, SPRITZ AND PEARS

Intensely aromatic with pear and white chalk flavors, this very dry Muscadet shows a bit of spritz in the mouth from the wonderful acidity and literally mouthwatering flavors. Yes, a veritable lake in your mouth after you swallow!

Serving Suggestion: Shellfish is a must, and if you dip it in a little clarified butter you will have a wine powerful enough to complement and never compete. Crab, oyster, mussels, or scallops tonight?

2020 Rosé "Eleon'Or" (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine des Herbauges, Rosé "Eleon'Or", Loire Valley, France 2020

60% Grolleau Noir, 40% Gamay

JUICY-TART PLUM & GRENADINE, BLOSSOMY FRESHNESS

While this rosy refresher comes to us from the lakeside land of Muscadet, it features a variety best known for its rosé work in the Middle-Loire’s Anjou. This, however, is quite different from the fleshier, classically less-dry rosés from the Loire lore of yore. At a thirst-quenchingly meager 11.5% alcohol and teaming with tongue-tingling acidity, this pretty pink is practically the promised land of rosé refreshment.

Serving Suggestion: Mac & cheese-style cauliflower casserole w/ blistered green beans & garlic-miso sauce. "General Tso’s" fried tofu w/ lo mein & baby corn.
