Sips for Spring!

Champagne Clandestin Ercole Rosato Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc
Warmer weather is starting to show itself and the island is officially in bloom! There’s three wines on my ‘must sip in the sunshine’ list for this weekend. 
Champagne Clandestin Les Semblables Boreal - $85
A nervy, energetic, and linear expression of Pinot Noir Champagne from Meursault trained winemaker, Benoit Doussot. Biodynamic & organically farmed Pinot Noir grapes from particularly cool north-facing parcels offer bright berry fruit flavors that lead into mouth watering chalk minerality. Bottled with zero dosage, this is sure to please those who enjoy a pure and precise style of Champagne.
Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley, CA- $25 
Lieu Dit is the project of two young California winemakers with a passion for Loire Valley varietals that they’ve found to be well suited to the many microclimates of the Santa Ynez Valley. Their operations center around Sauvignon Blanc and they make a point to work with Biodynamic and organic growers in the region. The resulting wine is a much cleaner expression of Sauvignon Blanc than one might usually find in California, while still retaining those classic citrus and herbaceous notes that are expected and loved from this varietal. Sunshine in a bottle.
Ercole Rosato Piemonte, IT - $18
This rosé of Barbera and Dolcetto is pure fun in a bottle. Produced by a cooperative of local growers in Monferrato who blend together under the Ercole label - This bottling is dry with bright acidity, juicy watermelon and strawberry fruit, and finishing with a savory minerality. It’s hard to come by a wine so delicious and lively for this price & the fact that it comes in a liter bottle with a convenient screw cap makes it the perfect bottle to share!
