2017 Rías Baixas Albariño, “de Padriñan” from @adegaeidos . White honeysuckle edged with yellow pear hit the olfactory bulb. The front of the mouth repeats these flavors with the wine sitting medium-medium plus on the tongue before it gets progressively lighter across the mid and then disapears down the back with some very pleasantly present acidity leading to sensations of minerality.

2014 Monsant, “Dido” from @venusuniversal . Rainy weather got you feeling a little off kilter like the goddess of love betrayed you and your Trojan Prince set sail without saying good bye? Don’t despair and throw yourself on the pyre, instead have a glass of Catalonian sunshine. Let the rich warm fruit with a touch of tertiary around the edges fill your nose. Then realize that it’s not as heavy as you thought it would be and that it has a finely structured mid complete with sandy tannins. Let it finish with red minerality and revitalizing acid and then, re-invigorated, get your new Boyfriend, Hannibal, to cross the Alps and kick sand in the face of that runaway son-of-a-venus man-sloot Aeneas.
“The wine, sourced from our sauló (decomposed granite) soil plots in Falset. The wine is aged in clay pots to maintain it s extraordinary freshness and purity. This wine comes from a plot of 10 hectares of degraded granite land called gravel. The sandy gravel structure and graceful texture changes temperature rapidly depending on the climate. Heated during the day and cools at night, allowing the grapes a good and long maturation.
Grenache coming from gravel is an explosive fruit expression and turn a deep dark contrast due to day / night temperature.
We try not to take part in this term and maintain this expression, is because of that we work with whole grain, medium duration of maceration, and aging very respectful of the fruit as clay amphora or concrete tanks.
60% of the wine aged for 16 months in different wood barrels from 300L up to 4000L, little clay amphorae and the remaining 40% in concrete tank to emphasize the fruit.
70% Grenache, 15% Syrah,
15% Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon.”

2017 Rheinhessen Rosé Trocken from @weingut_wittmann . Brused red fruit and mushroomy Pinot funk on the nose. Crisp and spritely in the mouth with more Pinot funk and some herbal notes to go along with some nice mid-palate texture in the mouth. Finishes with the some juicy acidity. BTG while it lasts.
Pinot Noir & St. Laurent
VITICULTURE & VINICULTURE
High quality wine doesn’t come on its own. It starts in our vineyards with yield reduction, hand selection of the fruit and a variety of other biodyn-friendly measures throughout the year. In the cellar, gentle pressing is followed by traditional vinification methods. The wines are primarily fermented in traditional large barrels.”

2018 Beaujolais Blanc, “Sur le Granit” Domaine Bulliat
Fresh golden apple on a wet stone in the summer sunshine nose. In the mouth the lack of wood keeps it super fresh and easy with Chablis purity but more Mâcon weighted.
