WHITE WINES OF FRANCE!!!
OKAY! It's still pretty hot. Yeah, It's New Orleans and we are in the home stretch of Hooooottttt!!!!! But we do this! And to combat that icky sticky, we've decided to taste some serious whites to cool us down. This is the way we do it y'all...
Albert Mann Pinot Blanc
A serious favorite here that the Bacch, Albert Mann Pinot Blanc just oozes cool, calm and lovely!
Biodynamic, delicious and always an incredible value, Mann’s lovely, lemon gold Pinot Blanc deftly balances a bold core of peach and pineapple fruit with soft minerality, acacia honey, and smoky, herbal notes. A full, lavish palate features suggestions of peach, Mirabelle plum and nectarine. On the finish, lifting acidity buoys the wine’s citrus and stone fruit expressions, while reprises of nectarine and yellow plum fruit yield to hints of fresh ginger and slate minerals. This is a textbook, mineral-driven Pinot Blanc in the elegant yet palate-staining Alsatian style: the kind that serves as inspiration for Pinot Blanc specialists in Italy and Oregon.
Domaine Plouzeau Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
Grown-up old-world Sauvignon Blanc, from the heart of the Loire Valley, this is your new go-to. Lean but dense, with delicate aromas of white peach and passionfruit and a refreshing saline finish.
Domaine des Aubuisieres "Bernard Fouquet" Cuvee de Silex Vouvray
Bernard Fouquet, a quiet-spoken man, is making some of the most serious Vouvray you'll find these days. He is regarded in France and the international press as one of the top Vouvray producers. No one succeeds better than Bernard in capturing the mineral tones unique to Vouvray’s soil, with the marvelous balance of explosive fruit and titillating sensation of the Chenin Blanc grape.
Font Mars Picpoul
Picpoul grapes are picked with full organoleptic maturity in the middle of September, at night in order to preserve all their qualities of coolness. Pale gold color, crystal clear, light green reflections. Aromas of white peach, pineapple, and white roses. Lively on the palate with same exotic fruits as presented in the aromas.
