Couly-Dutheil Les Chanteaux Blanc 2017A rare and unique Chenin Blanc with aromatic, soft and floral fruits. Dry and elegant, complex and rich. Chanteaux is a dry, round, vibrant wine with flowery aromas and a little melon, white pear, and pineapple on the palate.

The wine is bright yet rich in the mouth, impeccably balanced with a hint of sweetness, moderate acidity and nice linearity. The finish is extremely long, crisp and ultimately refreshing with lingering flavors of flowers, lime zest and wet stones. Already drinking great, the 2015 A to Z Riesling will age and gain in complexity and depth over the next fifteen years.

The palate is creamy, dense and moderately tannic, making it a good candidate for extended aging. While it is powerful, there is still a sense of elegance. This wine will pair well with roasted or barbecued duck or venison, and for the more adventurous, chocolate cake.
Michael David Petite Petit 2016Dark, delicious, and crave-worthy. Comprised of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot, the 2016 vintage of Petite Petit not only delivers the goods, it also adorns an updated package.

Domaine LaFage Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa 2016Benefiting from a warm, dry climate, the estate is farmed organically. They grow primarily Grenache (Blanc, Gris & Noir), Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Marsanne, Roussanne and Chardonnay with a significant proportion of the vines well over 50 years old. The soil, as you near the coast is weathered, alluvial gravel while in the higher elevation sites it is predominantly schist. They harvest by hand and the winemaking is surprisingly uncomplicated with stainlesss steel for the fresher whites but mostly concrete tanks for the rest with a small amount of French oak demi-muids.
Domaine LaFage Cuvee Centenaire 2017Cuvée Centenaire takes its name from the 100 year-old vines of Grenache Blanc and Gris Jean-Marc Lafage farms just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean on gravelly clay soils. One of the greatest white wine values in our portfolio, the final wine blends these ancient grapes with up to 20% younger vine Roussanne. To make a wine that is both rich and balanced the grapes are harvested in two passes, the first when they just reach ripeness and are still high in acidity and a second pass when the grapes are fully ripe with rich fruit flavors. The wine is then aged in a combination of tank and new French oak barrels. - Winery Notes
