Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé Château Revelette 2014 - Although Peter Fischer was born in Germany, he dreamed of becoming a cowboy. So he went to California in the late 1970s where he worked on a ranch, before enrolling at UC Davis and becoming a winemaker. After a short stay at Buena Vista, and a year with the Provençal enologist Emmanuel Gaujal he set out on his own. All of the farming is organic, drawing from the discipline of biodynamics, and the wines are in high demand at restaurants like Troisgros in Roanne and Pic in Valence. Peter’s label sweetly acknowledges that he is a vigneron de gendre à gendre, a winegrower from “son-in-law to son-in-law.” Definitely not a simple, quaffing “pink” wine, the color is rose-gold, like polished copper in candlelight, with flashes of bright vermillion. In the glass, the wine unfurls discreetly with wild strawberries, ripe apricot skin, and fresh white flowers. The palate is vibrant and supple, with fine layers of mineral-infused red berries, bracketed with bright, fresh fruit acidity. Perfect with almost anything you can imagine!
Pouilly-Fumé L'Arret Buffatte Tinel-Blondelet 2013 - The name of the wine recalls the rest stop on the old Roman road that runs through the vineyard, where travellers could refresh themselves and their horses on their way between Paris and Lyon. This limpid, pale yellow-green wine unfurls gradually with aromas of white flowers, kaffir-lime leaves, and lemongrass trading places with apricots, pink grapefruit, and especially fresh fennel as the nose evolves over time. On the palate, the texture is silky chiffon, with exotic citrus flavors seasoned with wild thyme, anise, and herbal sea salt, while the refreshing, mineral-driven finish lingers forever.
Morgon Cote du Py Domaine de Robert 2014 - In the glass, the wine has a limpid, dark crimson color, with flashes of purple-blue. The nose unfurls with the perfume of crunchy black fruit (like tiny wild Berkshire blackberries), along with griotte cherries, crème de cassis, and a faint suggestion of lilacs, fresh tobacco, and charcuterie. On the palate, the wine is multi-layered and concentrated, with a core of black-fruit flavors that echo the nose, adding orange pekoe tea, just-rained-on wet granite, and black truffles as the wine evolves in the glass. The long, satisfying finish is extended by lively fresh fruit acidity and dry mineral extract, and is punctuated with mild, fine-grained tannins.
