Domaine Jeanne – Rose, Luberon 2016
Domaine Jeanne’s was formed when Welshman Lord Mervyn Davies of Abersoch was introduced to winemaker Alexandre Samour, whilst sourcing the perfect rosé for his daughter’s wedding in 2011.
The Vineyard in Oppède, in the Luberon region of Provence, is situated between the mountains and the sea, close to the legendary wine-producing commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
The domaine’s first harvest was in 2012, releasing their first rosé in 2013, named ‘Jeanne’ after his Mervyn’s wife and Alex’s daughter. Jeanne appropriately means ‘divine gift’, and represents the importance of family to both founders.
Lovingly produced from grenache, syrah and clarirette grape varieties, its rose petal colour precedes a red and white fruit bouquet highlighted with citrus notes; a well-balanced crisp pallet, full of freshness, with a subtle fruity finale.
This wine works well on its own or partnered with fish, spicy foods and lamb. Enjoy over the next couple of years.
Echeverria – Unwooded Chardonnay Classic Collection, 2016
A Chardonnay unlike any other in the New World. This is a hand-crafted wine without any trace of oak influence. Aromas of tropical fruits and pears intermingle with mouth-watering acidity, while the wine retains a lovely round feel on the palate.
86 Points Wine Enthusiast.
“Apple and peach aromas are dusty and lightly tropical. With no oak, fruit is all you get in this Chardonnay; flavors of apple, nectarine and melon run clean, sweet and ripe, while the finish is mellow and lands smack in the middle of the fairway.” M.S. (8/1/2014)
