Come try these wines...
2019 Domaine de la Combe Muscadet...$18.99 / 750mlSur Lie
100% Melon de Bourgogne
The Vineyard is located in the "lieux dit » La Pétière in Saint-Fiacre distinguished by its particular topography named « Combe » which is a sort of valley. Today Pierre Henry Gadais is the only wine grower to own this terroir. For this reason, it is considered a Monopole. In addition, « La Pétière », located nearby, used to be a pre-historic village. With a total of 9 hectares, planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the vineyard is one of the last to exclusively produce Muscadet. Pierre Henry has always believed in the Melon but also in the traditions. For him, the new generation is changing the variety and by doing so, losing the appellation. Pierre Henry does not want Muscadet to become a new world wine region.
2020 Domaine Coutinel Braucol...$19.99 / 750mlAnne Arbcau and her brother, Gérard, manage this family estate based in Labastide-St Pierre, and produce a range of wines including this Braucol-replete with bright plum-skin flavors and ripe tannins. Initially powered by its acidity, a dexterous transfer to the tannins manages the weight of the fruit.

70% Trajadura and 30% Alvarinho
Intensely mineral profile, with floral and orange peel nuances. Reveals a great purity in the mouth, of refined but austere style, serious, strong, and very sophisticated.
Recognized as one the foremost producers of boutique vinho verde in Portugal, Quinta do Regueiro is fast becoming synonymous with top shelf avant garde white wines.
Since 1988, Quinta do Regueiro has been using old-school methods to produce some of the most prized Alvarinhos in Portugal. Having started with one single vineyard in the estate's "backyard," today, Quinta do Regueiro is producing approximately 40,000 bottles of Alvarinho (and blends). With a style recognized by few and admired by all, these wines are all about the details...these, begin in the vineyard.
