French Reds (3-pack)
This pack features:
(Bugey, France) Domaine d'Ici La - Les Noirettes 2021
A crunchy expression of Gamay from fantastic alpine vineyards in Bugey. It undergoes a short carbonic maceration and is aged in inert concrete tanks. Juicy and fruit-forward, with serious elegance and precision. Clean yet very mineral finish.
.(Chinon, Loire, France) La Niverdiere - Renaissance 2018
A pure and energetic Cabernet Franc from one of the region's up and coming talents. Martine Budé's wines have such a distinct delicate touch, and are the epitome of purity. Juicy dark fruits with savoury notes, a soft structure, and a long spicy finish. All of her wines are vinfied in infusion style and aged in concrete vats to conserve a true expression of her terroir.
(Burgundy, France) Domaine de Thalie - Balancin 2022
Serious Burgundy Pinot Noir that punches far above its weight. Made with 70% whole bunches and lightly extracted, then aged in old barrels for one year. Buckets of complex red fruits, but with a really distinct earthiness and spicier edge than some of the super fruit-forward Pinots from this region. Gorgeous depth and balance, with a fine structure that keeps it together and will ensure a long life ahead should you choose to cellar it, although it's ready to drink now.
