Brut "Luminescence" (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine Herbauges, Brut "Luminescence," Loire Valley, France, NV

{sustainable} 40% Melon de Bourgogne, 30% Chardonnay, 30% Grolleau Gris

BRIOCHE, WHITE FLOWERS, CLEMENTINE, LUXURIOUS

This richly textured and aromatic sparkling from Domaine Herbauges is made in the Champagne style and echoes the world-famous beverage in terms of its plushness and yeasty aromas. Composed of 40% Melon de Bourgogne, 30% Chardonnay, and 30% Grolleau Gris, it retains the focused and transparent flavors of typical Loire valley whites while also showing a moderate florality and telltale biscuity notes from its 36 months spent on lees. 

Serving Suggestion: Caviar w/ all the fixins. Opulent brunch foods like eggs benedict and French-style omelettes with smoked salmon.

2016 Chardonnay "Unoaked" (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine des Herbauges, Chardonnay "Unoaked," Loire Valley, France, 2016

{sustainable} 100% Chardonnay

CITRUS & MINERAL, FLORAL HONEYSUCKLE, OAK-FREE PURITY!

Five generations of Choblet family winemaking in one elegant bottle. A brilliant effort in UN-oaked Chardonnay winemaking using sustainable agriculture. This silky textured, crisp white shows light citrus and floral honeysuckle aromas, mineral and tart quince. Very dry and lingering on the palate, this is a breath of fresh Chardonnay air. This is very old world in style vs. the traditional California style.

Serving Suggestion: A universal bottle of white with superb clean flavors - so bring it on! Try savory chicken wings, grilled snapper in miso, or semi-firm milder cheeses.

2015 Grolleau Gris (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine des Herbauges, Grolleau Gris, Loire Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Grolleau Gris

PEACH BLOSSOM & STRAWBERRY, TONGUE-TINGLING, ZESTY MINERAL

Grolleau Gris is the lighter skinned, pink-ish variant of a once-ubiquitous Loire grape responsible for an ocean's worth of crisp rosés and light-bodied reds. We don’t encounter Grolleau-based wines as much as we once did, and Grolleau Gris is an outright rarity! Thankfully, this rendition from Jérome Choblet, while made in very limited quantities, makes up for all the years that we didn’t know we were missing the variety. Hailing from the Atlantic reaches of the Loire’s Muscadet country, this not-quite-effervescent white tingles with mouthwatering acidity, summery fruit, and that spirit of adventure that can only come from drinking wine made from exotic grapes. Cheers!

Serving Suggestion: Maki sushi w/ snapper, salmon, pickled plum, & cucumber. Vegetarian bibimbap (and other lighter, medium-spicy Korean dishes).

Domaine des Herbauges, Muscadet "Clos de la Fine", Cotes de Grand Lieu - Sur Lie, Loire Valley, France, 2015

{sustainable} 100% Melon

LASER-FOCUSED MINERALITY, SPRITZ AND PEARS

Herbauges overlooks the Grandlieu Lake, thus the name of this cuvée. This most prestigious vineyard is the top in the appellation. The AOC was created in 1995 and represents 17 communes around the Grandlieu. Intensely aromatic with pear and white chalk flavors, this very dry Muscadet shows a bit of spritz in the mouth from the wonderful acidity and literally mouthwatering flavors. Yes, a veritable lake in your mouth after you swallow!

Serving Suggestion: Shellfish is a must, and if you dip it in a little clarified butter you will have a wine powerful enough to complement and never compete. Crab, oyster, mussels, or scallops tonight?

2003 Muscadet "Le Legendaire" Vieilles Vignes (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine Herbauges, Muscadet "Le Legendaire", Cotes de Grand Lieu (Sur Lie), Loire Valley, France, 2003

{sustainable} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

goat gouda, macerated oranges, blow your muscadet up

Did you see that vintage?! Okay, the vines are 75-100 years old planted on a tiny 3 hectare plot in granite soils with pebbles. Get this, the wine is slowly stirred with lees contact in glass-lined tanks with a little propeller for 60 continuous months- unheard of! Legally this is TOO long to have "sur lie" on the label. This is possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity to taste such a complex wine made in a completely traditional/untraditional manner. The aromas are of goat cheese and gouda with citrus/orange blossoms and a golden honey funk. Man, this is crazy good wine.

Serving Suggestions: Goat cheese with age and a firmness; Yellow goat curry with potatoes, onions, carrots and sweet spices like clove and cinnamon.
