UPCOMING WINES:

APRIL 6TH

Lune à Boire Blanc, Biodynamic, Famille Kreydenweiss, Bas – Rhin, Alsace, France NV

Easy to drink and unpretentious, fruity and mineral. In French, “Boire” means “to drink”. It is a wordplay to emphasize the fact that it is a wine to drink in good company. Dry wine. 2018 Reviews: “Salty yeast and fresh red-apple peel make for a nose that is both savory and fruity. The palate of this wine adds bright lemon freshness to this beautifully textured wine that still shimmers with yeasty funk. It has intensity and personality but above all pervasive, full-flavored freshness.” – 92pts, Wine Enthusiast

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso, Mastroberardino, Vesuvio, Campania, Italy 2020

This ruby red wine with legendary origins made from Piedirosso grapes has a bouquet full of cherry and plum aromas, supported by spicy notes of pepper, clove and mineral nuances. On the palate the wine feels warm, juicy and well-structured with smooth fine tannins on the finnish.

An amazingly aromatic and floral nose. Complex musk rose and chamomile fragrances give way to soft red fruit, a hint of spice and earth tones. In the mouth it is soft and sinuous, with a lightness of touch that belies its depth and complexity. Silky mouthcoating tannins temper the long fruit-driven finish. This wine is the quintessential iron fist in a velvet glove.
