  • Inspiring Thirst » Blog Archive » April Newsletter: Spring Pop-Up, New Arrivals from Angéline Templier & Daniel Brunier, and a Venetian Sampler
    a lovely everyday red for even the most modest of circumstances providing authentic Provençal flavors and straightforward pleasure at excellent value The blend is mostly Grenache sourced from around Châteauneuf du Pape and then aged in a combination of cement tanks and oak foudres Le Pigeoulet emphasizes fruit and freshness over concentration qualities the cool growing season accentuated this year we have something especially buoyant refreshing and dangerously easy to swallow A total quaffer with aromas of cherry raspberry and réglisse this could be your new house red 18 00 per bottle 194 40 per case 2013 CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE PIEDLONG F D BRUNIER In a region where raw power usually trumps finesse we are fortunate that vignerons like the Bruniers are tirelessly striving to bring out the nuance inherent in some of the southern Rhône s great terroirs Their Piedlong bottling is an effort to deliver classic stony Châteauneuf that is accessible both in price and in its early stages of life It consists of old vine fruit grown mainly in galets roulés resulting in a mineral tension highlighted by the relative coolness of the 2013 vintage Sleek and suave on the palate the Piedlong culminates in a noble tannin that will remind you of the southern Rhône s potential for wines of real finesse 58 00 per bottle 626 40 per case VENETIAN SAMPLER by Anthony Lynch I distantly recall a childhood trip to Venice when I was too young to revel in the wonders of art fine cuisine and wine Days I would have gladly spent drifting along the city s canals on a sweetly swaying gondola were instead filled with interminable treks to tedious museums and traumatizing assaults from the hostile mob of pigeons patrolling Piazza San Marco Today I would give anything to return to Venice and savor its architecture music and prosperous food and wine scene Once a thriving trade hub providing a commercial gateway to the East Venice also enjoys a strategic geographical location for the abundance of vineyards within its reaches The nearby Alpine foothills tempered by warm breezes from the Adriatic create an ideal climate for viticulture across a large band of northeastern Italy Prosecco ubiquitous in Venetian bars is only the tip of the iceberg the Veneto produces the most DOC wine of any region in Italy and nearby Friuli Venezia Giulia is home to a wealth of its own traditions This sampler offers an introduction to the various styles produced around lovely Venezia So get some polenta started turn on Vivaldi and pour yourself a glass of Venetian refreshment while you dream of a gondoliere rhythmically rowing you off into the sunset PER BOTTLE Prosecco Superiore Brut Sommariva 14 95 2014 Bardolino Chiaretto Corte Gardoni 14 00 2014 Friuli Colli Orientali Pinot Grigio La Viarte 19 95 2012 Venezia Giulia Malvasia Istriana Kante 35 00 2013 Bardolino Superiore Pràdicà Corte Gardoni 18 95 2009 Venezia Giulia Terrano Kante 25 00 Normally 127 85 SPECIAL SAMPLER PRICE 102 a 20
