2018 Beaujolais Villages, “Nature” from @legrappin
Positively bursting with happy fun Carbonic Gamay fruit edged with a slightly reduced blood & iron savoury funk. More light and happy in the mouth finishing with the good acid and ferric sapidity. On BTG until we hide the rest for the bottle list. “From the village of Lancié which many consider the “next Cru”; old vines on broken-down granitic soil. Harvested by hand and placed in concrete vats as whole clusters with around 5% foot crushed to release some juice. Kept under CO2 cover to protect against oxidation, since no SO2 was used on the grapes, as well to encourage intra berry carbonic fermentation. Pressed after 8 days on skins the wine finished its alcoholic fermentation by natural yeasts in old Pinot Noir barrels and aged on lies for 5 months unsulphured. The wine is unfined and unfiltered with no sulphur added at any stage.
Some spritz was left in the wine to protect it, so a decant or a shake is encouraged! Glou-glou!” #wine #toronto #winetoronto #torontowine #winebartoronto #torontowinebar #gamay #beaujolais #beaujolaisvillages #nature #glouglou #gogamaygo #gamayzing #gamaytheforcebewithyou #CO2>SO2 #thespritzisthereonpurpose #decantorshake
2017 Pfalz Weißer Burgunder Kabinett Troken from @koehlerruprecht
Rich nose that is pinoting with a touch of white flower honey to go with the subtle mushroomy-ness. In the mouth it tastes like there might be some residual sugar hanging out, but that might just be the richness of the fruit. Some saltiness is hanging out at the back with just enough acid to balance things out and keep it from pfalzing down the cloying way. On by the glass and perfect for sunny fall days. Just remember if you drink the Burgunder it’ll make you weisser ;) “100% Pinot Blanc vinified bone dry but very ripe. A late-harvest selection of older vines (40-50 years old) planted in limestone soils mostly from the Steinacker and some from Saumagen. Mineral-driven and creamy with a touch of acidity.
The Kallstadter Steinacker region is located east of the German wine route. It is a wine-growing region characterized by chalk and sandstone, where we grow Riesling and Scheurebe that feature a residual sweetness. The “Kallstadter Saumagen” region was established in 1810/36. It is located at the western edge of the city and is considered the best location in Kallstadt, even one of the best in Germany. The Saumagen is characterized by calcareous limestone, which gives Rieslings their distinctive mineral quality. This historic estate, long managed by the legendary and larger-than-life Bernd Philippi, was purchased in 2009 and since 2011 has been in the dedicated hands of Dominik Sona. He and his cellar master Franziska Schmitt are intensely hard-working and strictly honor the arch-traditional style of this beautiful, centuries-old cellar. “

2017 Savoie Mondeuse from Domaine Giachino
Red fruit with a black skin rolled in black pepper on the nose. More savoury in the mouth, like a very light northern Rhone Syrah. A touch of age has softened the tannins but they still give the finish a pleasant drying quality and touch of bitterness to the back end. On by the glass to usher you into fall. “Grape: Mondeuse
Yield: 40 hecto/ha
Ageing process: Aged in oak barrels on the lees
Region: On the clay and limestone foothills of Mount Granier, facing southeast.
Our red wines are produced from red grapes containing white juice. The grapes are picked by hand and then the bunches are placed in the vats. The maceration process lasts for ten to twenty days depending on the grape and vintage. During this period we draw and re-pump the wine daily, taking care not to crush the grapes. Following this maceration process, we withdraw the wine from the vat for pressing. Gamay is aged in the vat, Mondeuse in barrels (600-litre capacity) on the lees, until bottling”
