Mediterranean Musings

This weekend we are thinking of spring. Wines that go with a bit of sun even if it isn’t quite warm yet. In our minds we are bouncing around France, Italy and Northern Greece, picking out wine with a fresh taste but still enough body to stand up to a gust of wind from the north. Blow on into the shop and have a sip.


2020 Marchesi di Barolo, Sbirolo Langhe Nebbiolo $18
A fresh Langhe Neb with flavors of tart cherries, roses, and hints of truffle. It’s a medium-bodied wine with a lingering finish.

Was $26, Now $18


2019 Trimbach, Pinot Blanc $19
Trimbach’s 2019 Pinot Blanc shows a clear, fresh aromas of ripe apples and pears. The wine is round and juicy as well as savory on the pretty potent palate, and it reveals stimulating saline acidity. Very good indeed.

2022 Le Pech d’ André, Caracole $18
95% Aramon Noir, 5% Grenache
From vines planted by Mireille’s grand-grand-mother, harvested by hand, a nice garden-wine expressing all the qualities of this ancient Languedoc grape variety: Aramon. A bright and light red wine, with a flowery nose and tangy notes of redcurrant. Caracole d’Aramon can even be served chilled in summer. Organic, Natural
11% alcohol by volume


2020 Plano, Malagousia $21
This northern Greek white, the Plano brings to mind a Mediterranean garden with green herbs, citrus fruits, unripe peach, and a wonderful green character reminiscent of green pepper, freshly cut grass, fennel and mint.
