Eric Chevalier “Sans Prise de Tête” Rosé, Loire France

Éric Chevalier is a rising star in the Nantais of the Loire Valley. For ten years, he sourced fruit for a large négociant in the Touraine. In 2005, he returned to his hometown of Saint-Philbert de Grandlieu and ended up taking over the family domaine, Domaine de l’Aujardière. Éric sustainably farms 25 hectares of vines, producing wines of great character and finesse. He has found his future in his family’s past. Éric’s latest cuvée, a cranberry-orange tinted Cabernet Franc rosé, is a mouthwatering homage to the carefree moments in life. I get blood orange and clove on the palate—surprisingly complex notes for a wine whose name means “nothing serious.”

Bodega Toro Centenario Malbec, Mendoza Argentina

The evolution of high-quality winemaking in Argentina truly began when agronomist Michel Aimé Pouguet brought vine cuttings to Mendoza from France. These included a unique clone of Malbec. The Malbec grape adapted effortlessly to the dry highland terroir of Mendoza, providing ample yields and a generous, flavor-intensive wine style.  While the wealthy set of Mendoza in the late 1800’s focused on wheat and cattle, it was common people that cared about wine. By the end of the 19th century, they had come to love Malbec. This “peasant rebellion” eventually made Malbec Argentina’s wine of choice.  Malbec found its destiny in Argentina, now universally recognized as one of the world’s great terroirs. Thanks to M. Pouget and wineries like Bodega Toro, Malbec remains an accessible wine enjoyed throughout the world to this day, wherever families and good friends get together. This 100% grower owned winery is the #1 selling producer in its home country of Argentina.  This wine exhibits a violet red color of great intensity, accompanied by fruity aromas with marked personality of cherries and plums. On the palate it has a friendly entry with good structure, round tannins, very balanced and long finish.
