2015 Blanc, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Blanc "Sud Absolu", Rhone Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

APRICOT & PINEAPPLE, SULTANA, DRY WITH VIBRANT ACIDITY

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, an ancient pan-Mediterranean grape with no shortage of clout in this corner of the Southern Rhone has long been typecast as a grape whose undeniable potential for decadence and dessert should be pursued to the absolute fullest. Taking a totally different tact with this cuvée, Ligière follows a decidedly non-dessert, dry route here and employs the fiercely characterful grape as a delicious quaffer. This is an unusually refreshing yet perfumed example of what is most likely the original “Muscat” It is, quite literally, the granddaddy of Torrontes, and we highly recommend it to fans of that Argentine grape!

Serving Suggestion: Crab-based bouillabaisse w/ copious rouille (French Mediterranean spicy olive oil-infused mayonnaise w/ garlic & saffron). Similarly, spider rolls w/ scallion, lots of masago, & aioli!

2014 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise [375ml] (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, Rhone Valley, France 2014

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

PLUMP STONE FRUIT & SULTANA, FIRM WAXINESS & CANDIED CITRUS

Classic Beaumes de Venise, fortified with brandy and produced in a manner similar to port, is among the world’s most exotic, etherial desert wines and one which has become a coveted rarity outside its immediate area of production. Domaine La Ligiere, located in the heart of Beaumes, biodynamically produces exceptional wines – both there and in a few of the most revered neighboring appellations of the Southern Rhone. This distinctive, awesomely aromatic white stands in contrast to the estate’s famously robust reds but is no less powerful. This is a special treat and immensely memorable wine.

Serving Suggestion: Pork paté w/ orange peel, pistachio, & Grand Marnier. Lemon-apricot poundcake.
