Charly Thèvenet Régnié Grain & Granit 2019
Fragrant scents of rose petals, red plum and sour cherries mix with hints of clove, earth and fresh herbs. Light, supple and bright, the savoury palate has an elegant profile of sour cherry fruits, subtle clove, earth and spicy dried herb elements. Finishes dry with slightly tart acidity, fine boned tannins and a fresh faced medium to long aftertaste.

Xavier Bénier Cote de Brouilly 2018
Grapes are from a 1.7 hectare vineyard with schist soil, with vines over 100 years on the clock!!. Fermented with natural yeasts in neutral oak with 25 days maceration. Aged in foudre [large wood casks] for 8 months. Unfiltered. The expression of the grapes is healthy, frank and crunchy, the wine offers the superb intensity of a tasty fruit. The finish offers a nice length and a spicy freshness. It is a delightful wine, very balanced, very well crafted.
