The Wine Recommendations
2014 Patrimonio Blanc
|Where||Patrimonio, Corsica, France|
From the clay and limestone of Corsica’s Patrimonio AOP comes a pretty spectacular vermentino. The domaine has been biodynamic for a decade, and this wine has everything I want from an island white, the sea salt and the blossom of the wind kicking it up, the freshness and the depth.
2014 L’Espirit Libre
|Where||Anjou, Loire Valley, France|
From three parcels of schist and vines between 16–90 years old comes a broad, horizontal, delicious wine. After a touch of pot on the nose comes the orange and tangerine acid on the upper palate. Impressive bottle. His first certified biodynamic is in 2015.
