21 Jun Spotlight: Loire Valley
Today we’re featuring a collection of delicious wines from the Loire Valley! This region of France is often overlooked, despite being one of our favorites. This is the land of amazing white wines with subtlety and complexity, perfect for rising temperatures and spring/summer cuisine.
2017 Eric Chevalier Muscadet Côtes de Grand Lieu “Clos de la Butte”
On Sale $15.99
This Côtes de Grand Lieu has all the classic stony and fresh Muscadet characteristics, and also that added extra je ne sais quoi you find only from the best producers of the region. Éric Chevalier is a rising star in the Nantais of the Loire Valley.
2018 Arnaud Lambert Saumur Blanc Brézé Clos de Midi
On Sale $16.99
Brézé is a unique site due to its relatively high elevation and eminently nuanced geological profile. The significant presence of tuffeau results in finely mineral Chenin Blanc… Clay and sand also lend themselves to the diversity of the terroirs, giving body to the reds and richness to the whites. Arnaud’s driving ambition is to truly understand and reveal the distinctions within this extraordinary appellation.

With a pink salmon colored dress, this Rose Sancerre reveals fine notes of grapes and pieces of exotic fruit in the nose. In the mouth, it reveals a smooth and fresh feeling.
