(ALL DAY, EVERY DAY)
This weekend, we’re celebrating Fall Season in LA, mirroring the city’s unique blend of warm, sun-kissed days and cooler evenings. We’re featuring wines that’ll carry you through these ‘pre-winter’ months, even if we get more crazy and unexpected rain (seriously. WHAT?).
FAMILLE HUGEL PINOT BLANC 2020
Now the most planted varietal in Alsace, Pinot Blanc is an all purpose wine. The Famille Hugel Pinot Blanc is both delicate and sturdy, nicely rounded but still refreshing. The wine welcomes with a discrete, subtle and racy nose with delicate floral notes without a need to shout.
On the palate, freshness dominates, with notes of green apple, yellow plum, and fresh hay bring up generosity.
DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD LE PETIT RENARD 2022
60% Roussane; 20% Marsanne; 20% Viognier. Fresh while remaining firmly rooted in the terroir of the Southern Rhone.
Bright peaches and apricots on the nose, and a velvety texture on the palate. The wine is produced from grapes that are biodynamically farmed, in harmony with nature and with a profound respect for the environment.
Also, the label is incredibly cute.
LE MONDE CABERNET FRANC 2018
From a certified sustainable vineyard in Friuli, Italy. Winner of the Tre Bicchiere, this wine is vibrant and racy. The high quality of this wine results from Le Monde’s choice to opt for low yields per hectare with vines that are well more than 30 years old on average.
Aromas of cherry, strawberry, roses and herbals. Flavors of black cherries, dark berries and spice fill the palate.
The wine is silky and pure with finesse and elegance.
SEGHESIO ZINFANDEL 2021
This is a mono-varietal blend comprised of Zinfandel from vineyards in Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander valleys.
Intense aromas of black currant and plum complemented by savory notes of black olive, anise and all spice. The Palate is supple with lively tannins and a powerful, lingering finish.
Pair with rich and meaty short ribs, braised pork belly, or gorgonzola.
