Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015 Product #30926 (In Stock)
Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015 Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015

If you've only ever had mass-produced Picpoul de Pinet from a co-op winery - or if you are just craving something deliciously different in white wine refreshment - you owe it to yourself to try this.  As Andrew Jefford, British author of the landmark The New France has said, “Perhaps the best wine for me is an astonishing Picpoul de Pinet, picked very late from low-yielding vines: those who consider this an inarticulate if refreshing choice, the Muscadet of the Midi, should try this mint-and-verbena-scented, powerfully lemony wine.” 

The aromas feature fresh mint and verbena scents to go with aromas of lemon pulp, green melon, and more.  Flavors of lemon peel, tangy pineapple, green apple and fresh, salty, sea breeze swirl across your tongue in a wine that coats your palate with agreeable richness and finishes salty, lemony, minty, and very fresh.  You've never had Picpoul like this before, and once you try it (especially with shrimp, oysters, or clams), you'll struggle to go back.

Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2011 Product #30686 (In Stock)
Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2011 Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2011

Montestefano’s distinctive soils, unusually high in calcium,  make this one of the most powerful, even Barolo-like, wines from Produttori del Barbaresco.  Give it 5 years in cellar and enjoy for years and years to come.

“The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is one of the least expressive of these wines. Inward, powerful and explosive, the 2011 is not in a mood to show much today, that is pretty clear. Still, there is an obvious energy here that is impossible to miss. A firm spine of tannin gives the wine much of its signature power. Dark red cherry, smoke, pomegranate and scorched earth blossom on the dramatic finish. A wine of real density and gravitas, the 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano stands out for its pure, unbridled energy and overall intensity.”  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 2011 Product #30833 (In Stock)
Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 2011 Produttori Del Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 2011

Although Ovello is cooler than some other sites, it somehow gives a fleshier, more expressive wine than they do.  You can certainly drink this right now with lamb or rare beef but it will just get more aromatic, longer, and more complex over the next 15 years.  As Galloni says, “Don’t miss it!”

"The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello, from one of the coolest zones in Barbaresco, is superb. Here it is the wine's precision and energy - both hard to come by in 2011 - that really stand out. Pine, mint, chalk, bright red berries, blood orange and white pepper are some of the signatures in a brilliant, finely-cut Barbaresco that captures the best of both the vintage and this site. Don't miss it!"  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points
