The Wine Recommendations

Christian Venier
2012 Les Hauts de Madon

Where Cheverny, Loire Valley, France
Grape Pinot Noir, Gamay
Ag Organic/Biodynamic
SO2 None added
Price$22
This perennial favorite of mine comes from the silica and clay soils of Les Hauts. The vinification is classic semi-carbonic and the result is gorgeous perfume and a joyous wine. Great acidity, velvet texture.

Puzelat-Bonhomme
2012 Le Tel Quel Vet

Where Loir-et-Cher, Loire Valley, France
Grape Grolleau, Gamay, Pineau d’Aunis
Ag Organic
SO2 Low
Price$14
As always, a beautiful little wine, and in the difficult vintage of 2012, it still succeeds. Tart yet velvet with a touch of licorice. Load up on this by the case to get your everyday wine on and never be bored.
