Mixed Case: Springtime Sampler

$342.00 $295.00

After a long and snowy winter, it seems Spring (or maybe summer) has at last arrived in the northeast. We avoid rigid rules for seasonal drinking — sometimes the moment calls for Chablis in December, or a Châteauenuf in June. But with the arrival of warm, sunny days, we find ourselves reaching for a certain style of wine.

So we’ve collected four of our favorites into a sampler to welcome Spring. Two are whites — crisp, dry wines with pleasant fruit and refreshing mouthfeel. And two are red: Pinot Noir from Burgundy, showing pleasant cherry fruit and cool mineral balance; and a cool Syrah-Grenache blend from Languedoc, showing plums, earth, rosemary, and raspberries. All four should fit nicely into those picnics and outdoor meals we’ve been waiting all winter for.

BOYER Aligoté 2016
From a master of Meursault, this is an unusually complex take on an uncomplicated grape. Boyer raises the wine in old oak barrels, and the result is a blend of a smooth mouthfeel with crisp freshness.

MAILLET Macon Verzé 2015
This pure, unoaked chardonnay from Burgundy’s Maconnais region bursts with complexity and vibrancy. Look for notes of honeysuckle, green tea, melon, and straw.

DESVIGNES Givry 2015
From a juicy, very ripe year, this 2015 Red Burgundy is pure Pinot Noir. The wine has a dark, mouthfilling style that makes it hard to put down; look for notes of wild cherries and toast.

FOULAQUIER Orphée 2015
Foulaquier’s 2015 version of this wine is the best it’s ever been. The oraganic, smooth, juicy blend of Grenache and Syrah shows plums, earth, rosemary, and raspberries.
