Wine

Last night, to accompany pizza making.

Details for the nerds of this group: "Sin Azufre is a handcrafted personal project by Piero himself. It is an experiment of making wine without science, using only the eyes, nose, palette, and reasoning as tools. These organic and biodynamic grapes are harvested from a special section of the Cincuenta y Cinco vineyard. In 600L barrels, the fermentation begins spontaneously on day 3 to 5 of maceration. At the end of the fermentation cycle (usually 15 to 21 days), the must is placed in used barriques for 11 months, without the inclusion of pressed wine. Sin Azufre characteristics are soft, balanced, lively, transparent, and extremely energetic with pronounced minerality and well integrated soft tannins. Pairs universally."

Very enjoyable. A pricier retail bottle but sometimes you just gotta treat yourself (employee pricing helps).
 
Fun stuff tonight - grabbed this ‘18 Ganevat Cuveé Madelon at dinner. 75% gamay, 25% all kinds of shit. This wine is alive to put it lightly. Prickly carb, a touch of VA, but not in an unpleasant way. Earthy funk, fruity, and really opened up after 20-30 min. Highly recommend

Shared a couple bottles at Lolo last night. Pierre Cotton Côte de Brouilly and Le Temps d’Aimer Malice. The Malice was such a fun Cab Franc - light, prickly carb, kinda tart, and so much jammy red fruit. I thought it might be too out there for the group but it was a hit.

JF Ganevat’s Trousseau . This is one of the best wines I’ve ever had. Happy New Years everyone!

Did you find this for under $100? The restaurant I was at last weekend had it for $200ish and I passed. I asked about retail to-go pricing but they only had a couple bottles
 
It was priced at $70, along with Ganevat's Ploussard which I also bought. I wouldnt pay $200 for this wine, but its damn worth the $70 entry price.
Yep that’s about the previous retail I saw. It “sucked” bc the restaurant was adding 25% to all items instead of tip, so that meant $155 bottles ended up a bit south of $200. I get it—service industry is front line and has to cover their people, but ‘twas too rich for my blood

Im not too shocked at the $200 price for in-house at a restaurant. Its way too high, but it seems somewhat on par for restaurant pricing of hard to get wines and beers. Still wouldnt spring the money though. Next time these show up ill reach out.
