Domaine Durdilly is a small family estate in southern Beaujolais. In a region full of negociants, Durdilly stands out, producing one of the few 100% estate-bottled Beaujolais wines that make it to the US. Beaujolais Nouveau is bottled within 8 weeks of harvest, which allows for a playful, low tannin, fruit forward wine. With a slight chill, this wine will ease you through those family gatherings. Winemaking Details: native yeasts
Winemaker, Robert Eden, was kicked out of college for brewing too much beer in the dorms and it's a good thing! Otherwise, he may never have moved into oenology and we wouldn't be able to share this beautiful picpoul of his! This wine is as fresh as a bouquet of flowers on the nose. Zesty lemon, white pepper, and honey cover the palate before its persistent bone dry finish making this a great match for the local seaside foods of the Mediterranean or a version of your own!
This wine is a blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are sourced from the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux - from a single estate which uses organic practices. Bright and juicy showcasing ripe black cherry fruit with a firm core and graceful, lengthy finish. It’s exactly what it should be, a terrific entry level Bordeaux from a great vintage and a great price. Winemaking Details: Fermented and Aged in Old Neutral Oak
Nicolas Rousset makes wines that respect nature, the environment and are expressive of their terroir and vintage. He works biodynamically, using indigenous yeast, and understands balance and subtlety. This wine is made from Gamay, in the traditional semi-carbonic style, and would please the most discerning crowd (and it is a crowd-pleaser). Aromas of red fruits and spice follow bright cherry and a bit of vanilla on the palate. Just enough acidity brings it all home in a delicious, quaffable glass.
Deep cherry red in the glass with purple highlights. The nose on this organic charmer is full of baking chocolate, ripe plums and sweet herbs. The palate is ultra-ripe with loads of crushed black berry, plums and waves of garrigue infused minerality.
Nice fruit, earthy, a very friendly cabernet franc. This is an uncomplicated, easy to enjoy red made from biodynamically farmed grapes. It's as easy on the wallet as it is on the earth!
This unoaked chardonnay has a fruity nose and dynamic mineral scents. The palate opens with crisp citrus and white peach that are boosted by vibrant acidity & heady minerality.
The late André Iché made honest wine that tasted of place, the Languedoc to be precise. This wine has always been a down-to-earth favorite of ours and we're glad the family are continuing to make this wine of bright plum and blackberry fruit, gentle mid-palate freshness and a tiny touch of tannins on the finish. Winemaking Details: Wild Yeast Fermentation
