- J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 Product #30660 (In Stock)
A rich but vibrant white made from the Loire Valley’s most important white grape – the Chenin Blanc made famous by Vouvray – and Burgundy’s Chardonnay grape, which has thrived in warmer spots here for years. The vineyards are in the Fiefs Vendeens AOC, just a few miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean. The balance of warm Maritime sunshine and brisk Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen fully while retaining plenty of summer refreshment value and cut.
Delivers a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) aromas with accents of tree fruits like apples and peaches. On the palate it’s wonderfully fresh and bright from first to last, with notes of peach, apricot and apple lingering under zesty lime juice acidity. A joyful wine of great distinction to simply sip or pair with summer salads and seafood.
- J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2016 Product #31960 (In Stock)
From the Western Loire Valley appellation of Fiefs Vendeens, this ripe and juicy blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Negrette is even more fun in the stellar 2015 vintage. Ripe aromas of crushed cherry and watermelon and a touch of fresh herb lead the way to a big mouthful of cherry/berry fruit and a fresh, juicy, mouthwatering finish. Lip-smacking and fun to smell, drink and just admire – especially in the throw-back old-school bottle. A bit richer and creamier than in the past; just as dry and crisp. Great stuff to sip or enjoy with any spring or summer meal.
