Tasting: Clos la Coutale & Champalou

--
When drinking wine there are typically several barriers or layers between the glass in your hand and the winemaker who produced it. Importers, distributors, your local wine shop. And in another sense, expectations and the influence of trends. It's a treat when we have a chance to collapse that space and hear directly from the horse's mouth, so to speak, what it's like in the vineyards and why they choose to practice the way they do.

This evening we're hosting two winemakers from France for a special in-store tasting - Céline Champalou & Philippe Bernède. After having interned at wineries across the world, Céline recently joined Domaine Champalou to work alongside her parents. They only produce chenin blanc and this evening Céline is pouring five, showcasing the grape's wide range of expressions, from high tone & acidic to rich & sweet.

In addition to Champalou, we're hosting Philippe Bernède of Clos la Coutale. Philippe only produces one bottle, and he does it well. The Cahors is a blend of 80% malbec & 20% merlot, and it's a solid go-to year round and also has great aging potential.

Drop by the shop and collapse some space with us. Make contact with those who are making the juice. Practice your French. Bisous.
