2018 Les Deux Moulins Sauvignon Blanc $13
Les Deux Moulins is located between Anjou and Tours, with vineyards made up of gravel and schist soils, which instill the wine with a vibrant and long-lasting mineral finish. The fruit is very bright and lively as well.Notes of lime, gooseberry, and a subtle grassiness. Organic. 12% alcohol by volume
2014 Château Les Marechaux Blaye $15
Merlot, Cabernet Franc
A dusty and leathery Bordeaux from Blaye. A good match for rich meats. Was $18 now $15.
