2014 Saumur Champigny "Franc de Pied" Domaine des Roches Neuves

Germain took the risky approach of planting a small portion of his vineyard with own-rootstock vines, known in French as "franc de pied". These non-grafted Cabernet Franc vines were planted in sandy soil, which naturally resists the development of phylloxera, with a planting density of 10,000 vines/hectare and are pruned in gobelet en echalas (on stakes as in the ancient vineyards of Mt Etna). The soil is worked with a horse because at this density it is impossible to use mechanized equipment.Annual production 80 cases

2008 Chignin Bergeron Roussanne Gilles Berlioz

Domaine Gilles Berlioz is located in Savoie, near the charming village of Chignin. He converted to biodynamics and since then "The soil is more fertile, the roots have penetrated much more deeply and the vines have become stronger and more resistant. The end result of all this is found in the wines I produce!” Bergeron is the local name for the Roussanne grape variety of the Rhone Valley. Rich and complex with aromas of white flowers and peach, a fresh and silky palate and a finish evoking apricot, honey and hazelnut.

2009 Palette Rouge Chateau Simone

This historic estate, holds a virtual monopoly on the appellation of Palette. Château Simone encompasses twenty hectares of vineyards that sit on limestone soils on the slopes of Montaiguet. All of the grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, lightly pressed and fermented for 15 to 20 days in small wooden vats with only wild yeast, then put into small foudre to rest on the lees. The red from Simone is an elegant wine of great depth. It is primarily composed of Grenache and Mourvedre but its special character reflects the presence of a melange other grape varieties, including Cinsault, Syrah, Carignan, Castet, Manosquin, Theoulier, Tibouren, Picpoul Noir and Muscat de Hambourg. The wine is a classic that deserves to be aged in order to best appreciate its many nuances.
