Folle Blanche sur Lie, Jean Pascal Aubron 2019 $11 (Loire, France) 100% Folle Blanche from organic vineyards in Vallet, not far from Nantes in Muscadet. Lean, crisp with dry with lime zest and wet rocks. Definitely in the Patio Pounder category.
Corse Calvi Blanc, Clos Culombu 2017 $20 (Corsica, France)100% Vermentino from younger organic vines on the northern coast of Corsica, hand harvested and wild fermented, then aged on the lees in steel before getting bottled unfined (vegan) and lightly filtered with minimal sulfur added. Salty minerality and pithy citrus on a medium bodied frame.
Costieres des Nimes Blanc, Maz Caz 2019 $17 (Rhone, France) Moving west to the border of southern Rhone and Provence and another one of our go-tos. This is organic Grenache Blanc and Roussanne from Michele d'Aprix, a winemaker we love who lives in NY but makes wine in Bordeaux, the Rhône, and Montsant. Medium bodied, dry, round, and pretty, with aromatic orchard fruits and meyer lemon.
Elbling (Liter), Weingut Furst 2020 $15 (Mosel, Germany) Think of Elbling as the Muscadet of Germany. It grows on the chalky soils of the northern Mosel and Luxembourg. Dry and crisp with bright citrus and a tiny hint of spritz. Definitely in the patio-pounder category.
Burgenland White, Meinklang 2020 $19 (Burgenland, Austria)As what might be considered Meinklang's 'house white' this blend of Gruner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Muscat far surpasses the constraints of that moniker in both quality and distinctiveness. Fermented with native yeasts and raised in steel tanks on the lees, the wine glows with aromas and flavors of pear, white peach, lime rind and white flowers. Its light-to-medium body and super-crisp acidity make for ideal summer drinking - a great pairing with fresh veggies and grilled chicken. Pure sunshine in this bottle.
Catarratto Bianco Non Filtrato, Fabrizio Vella 2020 $11 (Sicily, Italy) Organic Catarratto from northern Sicily, hand harvested, wild fermented and made all in steel, then bottled unfiltered with almost no sulfur added. Easy drinking with bright citrus and white flowers.
