Château Coupe-Roses Champ du Roy Minervois – France 2015

An intensely aromatic blend of 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Muscat Petits Grains. The wines from Coup Roses have excellent natural acidity from relatively cool nights and and long growing seasons. Crisp and floral. Annual Case production only around 1000.



Guilhem Rosé, Moulin de Gassac-Languedoc, France 2016

50% Syrah and 50% Carignan. Lively, vivid dry rosé with floral and mineral notes on the nose, crushed red flowers, cherry and red currant. Light refreshing palate and extremely well balanced.



Tiberio Pecorino Colline Pescaresi- Abruzzo – Italy 2015

Pale bright straw-green. High-pitched aromas of cantaloupe and hazelnut complement sage, rosemary and green fig. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with a strong impression of extract enlivening the flavors of orange zest, botanical herbs and fresh fruit salad. This is the best Pecorino wine ever made by Tiberio, and it’s also the best, most varietally accurate Pecorino wine of the year.
