Fleur De Valle

Grosjean Frères

Vallée d'Aoste Prëmetta 2019

So when my friend first brought me this and I was like gourmet from Italy, I completely thought it wasn’t even going to be worthwhile. Boy was I wrong. The classic strawberry and light fruit with medium acid to provide structure. Deliciously intact with a short and sweet expression of the grape. I didn’t know it was possible but this wind definitely showcases its elegance. — 7 days ago

Casa Madero

3V Valle de Parras Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Really enjoyed this. Warm strawberry leather, blackberry, black cherry, and red plum sauce. Dusty earth, white pepper, pencil lead, hint of cocoa, and tobacco. Right at the intersection of old world earthiness with ripe (to slightly overripe) fruit. Excellent w Birria tacos. Decanted in advance.

Vallée d'Aoste Petite Arvine 2019

I smell ginger spiced lemon herbs and palo santo sandalwood, fresh dill and fennel fronds. A full body sneaks in unnoticed under a salty high acid exterior.

Flavors with power and stay. Salted apples, sour pears.

La Kiuva

Rouge de Vallée

New addition to the inventory. Delicious mountain red. Nebbiolo clone with additional local grapes. If you like Cru Beaujolais and/or Mondeuse this is a wine for you. Lots of red berry fruit, purple flower and wet granite. Light chill and delicious on a summer evening. — 9 days ago

Valle Reale

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2019 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo displays sweet white flowers, melon, chamomile and almond paste. It’s soft in texture, with mineral-tinged orchard fruits and pretty inner florals. This leaves a sense of umami as it tapers off to notes of dried nectarine. Very nice and an excellent value as well. $15.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, July 2021) — 2 days ago

Château La Fleur Peyrabon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Wine comes from a 17-acre portion of the Peyrabon estate in Pauillac. Contains a high proportion of Cab Sauv. Dark Ruby with aromas of black fruit and spice. On the palate flavors of black fruits, oak and vanilla spice. Firm rustic tannins, ending with oak and earthy notes on a medium finish, drinking well now. — 5 days ago

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Noir 2019

Beautiful pinot - all spice and pure strawberry fruit. Fresh. Not much in the way of structure, but really quaffable. Reminds me of Sexton Applejack in red fruit purity. Buy. — 7 days ago
