April 2018 Wine Club Wines

We’ve got some great French AND Italian wines for your April Wine Club!

•  Domaine de Veil Orme – Sauvignon Blanc – France > Loire Valley.  Fresh and vibrant with lime, grapefruit and a touch of limestone mineralogy.  Spends four months on the lees giving it a creamy, textured mouthfeel.

•  Chateau Les Terrasses de Bouey – Bordeaux Rouge – France > Bordeaux.  The nose marries red fruit with toast and coffee notes.  More of the same on the palate with spice tones and delicate earthy notes.

•  Mauro Molino – Dimartina Vino Rosso – Italy > Piedmont.  A blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the northwest region of Piedmont.  Full bodied Italian with fruity and spice flavors.
