Gras Mouton 2018 $23The “Fat Sheep” comes from a south-facing windy hilltop site in the cru of Monnieres-Saint Fiacre, where the vines were planted in 1948, 1984 and 1991. The soil is mostly gneiss, mixed with some clay. The wine is aged on the lees for 9 months in tank, then lightly filtered and bottled with minimal sulfur. Round and generous with nice texture and notes of ripe citrus and fennel seed with a clean, mouthwatering finish.
Clos des Briords 2019 $24 Clos des Briords is located on a hillside along the river Maine with vines planted between 1930 and 1950 on a special type of granite called "Granite de Thebaud". This is fermented in steel, then aged on the lees in undergraound ceramic lined tanks for 9 months, then bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur. This is always one of Marc's more muscular crus with a chiseled, smokey minerality and almost a weightlessness to it, despite the core of ripe orchard fruit and citrus zest.
Get both for $40! These wines are perfect for this sunny end of summer, but will age beautifully over the next decade plus.
