Domaine de la Chauviniere, Brut Nature "Bretesche 1387"

NV

{organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

BONE DRY, ELEGANTLY SENSUAL, A MINERALLY MONOLITH

Like a bleakly beautiful black & white photograph of a wintery Atlantic beachscape, this methode traditionelle bubbly is a captivating study in contrast – elegantly austere yet captivating and seductive, gleaming brightly with an oceanic sheen and minerally shimmer. Muscadet maestro, Jérémie Huchet of Domaine de la Chauvinière is at the fore of a movement to elevate Muscadet beyond its unwarranted reputation for neutrality while strengthening its identity as one of the world's most pristine, restrained whites. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: Oysters, of course! Other (cooked or raw) bivalves will be just as eagerly accompanied. Sashimi abalone, conch, and surf clam are naturals...

2014 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine - Sur Lie "Clos les Montys Vigne de 1914" (Chauviniere, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Chauviniere, "Clos les Montys Vigne de 1914", Muscadet Sèvre et Maine - Sur Lie, Loire Valley, France, 2014

{organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

ZESTY LIME, RICH MINERALISTIC CLARITY, PIERCING ACIDITY.

Significantly more opulent than Muscadet's reputation might lead us to expect, this bold offering finds its grapes harvested not only from a single plot but from a corner of that plot which was planted a century ago (as of 2014). These older vines endow the wine with even more of the Atlantic-tinged minerality for which these wines are famous. While the overall impression may be rounder, this white is still equipped with bright, enlivening acidity. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestions: Minimally-seasoned broiled triggerfish w/ lemony asparagus & wild rice pilaf w/ chives. Oysters!

2016 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie (Chauviniere, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Chauviniere, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine - Sur Lie, Loire Valley, France, 2016

{organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

BRIGHT PEAR & LIME, CHALKY MINERAL, VERY VERY DRY

Holy Moly! We weren't sure if we were ready for this one! Possibly the driest tasting wine in the store. "It don't get no drier," said one fan. If you are curious about experiencing a wine with a very minerally flavor, but haven't identified that flavor yet, here is your chance. The minerality lingers on the finish for what seems to be minutes and is clearly identifiable. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: Other than being THE perfect match for raw oysters, most sashimi, ceviche and aged goat cheeses, try this with scallops in beurre blanc.
