Maison Roche de Bellene Bellenos Coteaux Bourguignons Cuvée Rouge 2016: Named for the ancient Celtic god of the sun, Bellenos (pronounced buh-len-os) wines are the ideal introduction to Burgundy. Bright, charming, affordably priced and ready to drink, they are the delicious “yes” that answers the eternal question: “Can’t we drink Burgundy every day?”.
Produced by Nicolas Potel, the Bellenos wines are the result of the cool and sunny climate of Burgundy, of its terroir and its traditional grape varieties. The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.
Castello Di Bossi Chianti Classico 2015: For owner Marco Bocci, success is in the details, from vineyard to bottle. The entire Castello di Bossi portfolio of wines carefully balances the tradition and rich history of the region with innovative winemaking techniques; this Chianti Classico is no exception. Made from 100% Sangiovese, grown in soils with high chalk content, this wine shows just how good this varietal can taste.
Bodegas Borsao Campo de Borja Syrah Zarihs 2015: Very good wine, balanced, with black fruits and a clear structure. This wine is the reference point of Spanish Shiraz due to its high quality.
Campo de Borja is a DO wine zone in Aragon, northern Spain. This extremely arid area is situated just south of the Ebro River and north of La Huecha River, and borders the southern stretches of the Navarra wine region. It is centered on Borja, a small town laden with history, having been founded in 5 BC by the Celtiberians (tribes thought to be of mixed Iberian and Celtic stock).
