2016 Bouysselet Blanc "Le Grand B" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, Bouysselet Blanc "Le Grand B", Southwest, France 2016

{organic} 100% Bouysselet

RIPE & LUSH. PEACH & PEAR WITH LEMONY ACIDITY

When Philippe and Diane Cauvin were researching the history of winegrowing in their local appellation of Fronton, they came across a grape they didn't know existed. Bouysselet, also called Prunelard Blanc, was previously thought to be the lost green-skinned sibling of the black-skinned Gaillac grape Prunelard. Having found a nursery which kept this vine alive for research purposes (but too little for winemaking), they had it propagated and brought back to life in their vineyard. This is the only Bouysselet in existence, farmed organically from a one acre vineyard, and it is a luscious phoenix of flavor!

Serving Suggestions: Lobster grilled rare with tarragon butter. Bay scallops, lightly seared topped with chervil and white pepper. Shrimp sashimi with ponzu.

2015 Negrette "Façon Puzzle" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, "Façon Puzzle" Rouge, Sud-Ouest, France 2015

{biodynamic} 80% Négrette, 20% Syrah

BLACKBERRY & RIPE CRANBERRY, PEPPERY MINERAL & SWEET HERBS

Fronton remains one of Southwestern France's frontiers for wine lovers. Despite being situated less than half an hour from the city of Toulouse, the region keeps a low international profile. Its reds team with deep purple fruit and a gentle spiciness which is distinctive yet understated. The "Façon Puzzle" from La Colombière, an estate with six centuries of rich history, presents the region's Négrette grape in the starring role with support from Syrah.

Serving Suggestion: Braised turkey legs w/ coriander & cardamom w/ boiled fingerling potatoes & dill. Autumn root vegetable terrine w/ Yukon Gold, yams, & grated raclette.

2018 Rosé Methode Ancestrale "Colombulle" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, "Colombulle" Rosé Methode Ancestrale, Southwest, France 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Négrette

RASPBERRY & WHITE PLUM, BREEZY SPARKLE, A TOUCH OF GRAPEFRUIT

Philipe and Diane Cauvin have essentially bridled the finicky Négrette grape into graceful submission with their catalogue of wines that seem to improve with each passing vintage. This is their newest offering, a delectably refreshing "petnat" sparkling rosé with pretty mousse that evaporates gracefully on the palate. A touch of ruby red grapefruit aroma adds serious depth. Great stuff. (slight sediment from the natural fermentation in bottle is harmless)

Serving Suggestions: Breakfast? I mean, you shouldn’t drink wine before noon, even on a Sunday, but seriously pair this with breakfast foods.
