2016 Chinon "Rive Gauche" (Plouzeau, Domaine)

Domaine Plouzeau, Chinon "Rive Gauche", Middle-Loire, France 2016

100% Cabernet Franc

INKY BLACKBERRY, FORESTY PERFUME, FIRM & FRESH

This exemplary Cabernet Franc offers us a one-sip-away view into an enchanted, autumnal forest. Bonnelière’s Marc Plouzeau has a wealth of varied terroir occupied by Cabernet Franc vines and Sauvignon blanc vines ranging in age from 30 to 200 years! Having taken over production from his father, Pierre, at the turn of the millennium, he’s established this cuvée from some of his younger vines. Lively and lushly perfumed, it generously serves up tangy, almost wild berryish brightness and an herbaceous perfume interwoven with velvety juniper.  “Vive Chinon,” indeed!

Serving Suggestion: Braised chicken thighs w/ Dijon mustard & crushed juniper berries. Chevre-stuffed crimini caps w/ dill & scallions.

2016 Sauvignon de Touraine (Plouzeau, Domaine)

Chateau de la Bonnelière, Sauvignon de Touraine, Middle-Loire, France 2016

100% Sauvignon Blanc

ELEGANT, DELICATE CITRUS & MAGNOLIA BLOSSOMS

Pierre Plouzeau began the process of returning the family lands - Chateau de la Bonnelière - to their origins: winemaking. His son Marc now runs the estate, pushing it towards organic viticulture. And he grows ethereally light Sauvignon; elegant, lean, and clean, with subtle aromas of citrus, white peach, and magnolia blossom, and finishing with hints of oceanic mineral and refreshingly light acidity. Vive Sauvignon!

Serving suggestion: A salad of spring greens, cold roasted asparagus, fresh chèvre, & seared scallops. Parmigiano-Reggiano & breadcrumb-crusted perch, pan-fried in butter and topped w/ fresh dill & a squeeze of lemon.
