The Wine Recommendations

Yannick Amirault
2010 Le Grand Clos

Where Bourgueil, Loire Valley, France
Grape Cabernet Franc
Ag Organic
SO2 Middling
Note to self: buy more Amirault and lay down. I’m struck by its age worthiness, knit and powdery tannin. The grapes are farmed from three different soil types. There has been a slight increase in SO2 addition as the domaine feels they were too low in the past. Stash this away for twenty years.

2011 Nebbiolo

Where Langhe, Piemonte, Italy
Grape Nebbiolo
Ag Organic
SO2 Conventional organic
I visited this property back in 2002, at that time it was one of the few organic properties in Barbaresco. The family is old-fashioned and that’s the way the wines are made as well. Here’s a nebbiolo with a touch of cumin seed and raspberry coated licorice.
