Clos de Quatre Vents Fleurie 2015

Fleurie, Beaujolais, France

$23.75 / each

Description:

Ripe, juicy and sinuous, this is a gorgeous example of Cru Beaujolais from the village of Fleurie. Made of 100% Gamay, this is quite ample on the palate, deeply concentrated in style, and beautifully structured. As it aerates in the glass, this wine reveals layers of sweet blackberry and raspberry fruit backed by chalky minerals and silky tannins.

Becker Family Pinot Gris 2016

Pfalz, Germany

$23.75 / each

Description:

This bright, super concentrated Pinot Gris hails from the Pfalz region of Germany and was grown biodynamically. A sort of wintertime rosé, this was macerated on the skins for 12-18 hours which turns the wine a pale shade of copper, since Pinot Gris skins are light pink in hue. You'll get loads of ripe strawberry and lemon peel on this very cool wine.
