October 2017 Wine of the Month Club

We’re featuring a Chardonnay from France and a red blend from Spain.

Gueugnon Remond Macon Charnay
100% Chardonnay. Veronique and Jean-Christophe Remond have at heart to make you discover their wines, reflecting a traditional wine making and representative of the soils of South Mâcon combining respect and typical varietals. Selection of old vines of Chardonnay sixty years on clay and limestone soils, harvested early in the morning “Dawn” on which we make a maceration of several hours: part of the alcoholic fermentation takes plaWOTM1017-1ce in regulated tank. Then the wine is placed in oak for a short period, which completes the breakdown of sugars, followed by malolactic fermentation. After ten months of aging, the wine is bottled. Because of skin maceration and barrel aging this wine has a varied range of flavors, and despite his youth, this round wine with nice tannins well integrated with lots of pleasure.

 

WOTM1017-2J. Fernando Red Blend
60% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Garnacha, estate produced and bottled. Castilla, Spain. Rich, ripe and deep ruby red with a core of smoky cherry and layers of black raspberry, cassis and chocolate flavors, this wine is modern in style with freshness and balance. 18 months in oak.
