  1. Marques Del Villar 2015, Rioja, Espagne

    Marques Del Villar 2015, Rioja, Espagne

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This new vintage of Marquès del Villar was love at first sip ! This rich wine is as original as it is warm and flattering on the palate. Cinnamon and forest fruits create a mesmerizing mix and the whole is carried by a remarkably soft texture. I advise you to taste this wine in your sofa under an air of Carmen to fly to Spain 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Tempranillo is the king of the wine-growing region of Rioja, where this grape variety was born. Thus, this represents a total of 70% of the total production of the vineyard. A small anecdote : its name is a derivative of the Spanish word « temprano », meaning early. This name makes perfect sense as it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grape varieties !

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Les Passeurs de Vins is a wine story, but above all, a friends’ story. Under the name of « Lionel Osmin et Cie », Lionel Osmin and five of his Basque friends discover the most beautiful vineyards in northern Spain, in order to obtain the best grapes and to elaborate original wines with their own values. The more the merrier, another huge amateur just came to support this club of joyful passionates, Imanol Harinordoquy (former national French rugby player), Basque indeed !/p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Rioja certainly is the oldest and most famous appellation in Spain for those red wines which unveil unsuspected qualities. Planted 400 meters above sea level and protected by three mountain ranges, the 60,000 hectares of vineyards benefit from a specific geographical location which favors a particular microclimatic development adapted to the grape harvest.

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Settled since 1816 in Beaune, Maison Jaffelin is a historic winery in Burgundy, a confidential one and one of my favourite.

    Làusu Nero d'Avola 2012

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    “The team of My VitiBox became bigger since when we welcomed Giorgia, a young Italian lady. I took the opportunity to turn to Sicily this month to let you discover an Italian grape variety, the Nero d’Avola. This varietal has particularly adapted to the Sicilian volcanic soil. This nice “little” wine is without pretentions but good quality and it goes well with simple but authentic dishes. There is no fuss in Sicily!"

    Feuille

    Grape Variety

    Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Sélection parcellaire, Domaine Lis Neris, Italia, Fiuli

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    « I chose this wine as I think it is original and well produced. The maceration of the grapes after the harvest was made with carbonic gas, as for the Beaujolais vintages. This enables to produce wines that are cooler and rounder. You will enjoy drinking this wine with your friends! Drink it within the two next years to enjoy the fruit aromas.»

    Feuille

    Grape variety

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    The Domaine Lis Neris respects the traditions and the nature instead of looking for selling at any price, and that is a strength for them! The entire harvest is carried out purely by hand, and that gives an excellent quality to the grape. We will certainly hear a lot about this domain in the next few years.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The Domaine Lis Neris is part of the prestigious wine growing region of Friuli, located in the North East of Italy. More than sixty hectares of vineyards are planted on a gravel and limestone soil that makes the wine strong and round in mouth. The gravels make a natural drainage of the water that brings thinness to the wine.

  7. Côtes de Castillon, 2007

    Côtes de Castillon, 2007

    Sommelier

    L'avis du sommelier

    2007 is clearly not the best vintage in Bordeaux. However, several winemakers, by working hard, still managed to produce nice wines. This is the case of this wine from Côtes de Castillon. A young wine is often characterized by its very fruity aromas, and a more evolved one like this one shows aromas of fresh grass and humus. Ideal with Camembert cheese and sliced truffles! 

    Feuille

     Cépage

    Merlot is a grape variety that gives intensely dark wines. The wines are full-bodied yet low in tannins, with flavours of plum and sometimes chocolate as the wine ages. Cabernet Franc will bring fine tannins and aromas of red berries and spices. The blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc gives the wine complexity and a beautiful bouquet.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Françoise Lannoye discovered late she had a vocation for winemaking. Before, she was working in Paris with her husband as a real estate agent. Buther parents, who were farmers themselves, taught her to love wine and terroir when she was a child.So it is quite naturally that she decided to go to Bordeaux in order to make wine. That is why she bought Chateau Moulin de Clotte 12 years ago.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The 8-acre estate Chateau Moulin de Clotte is located in the Côtes de Castillon vineyard, just next to Saint- Emilion. The soil is clay and limestone which is a very nurturing environment for the roots of the vine.This part of the Bordeaux region is maybe the best place on Earth to grow Merlot, the main grape variety there.

  8. Les Marnes 2013, Sancerre

    Les Marnes 2013, Sancerre

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Sancerre is mainly known for its white wines made from sauvignon. Many people do not know that it is also a great terroir for red wines! This is why I chose this great red Sancerre in order to broaden your horizons. Its really light colour and its herbaceous nose can be surprising, but I hope it will make you feel likelearning more by tasting, so as to discover its really nice aromas of red currant. Just remember one thing : the wine has to be a little chilled, so serve it between 12 and 14°C. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    France is the country that produces the most pinot noir in the world. It is the main variety for red wines in Burgundy. It is also the only black variety in Sancerre. It gives very fine wines with a lot of fruity aromas and very low tannins. But it is an unpredictable and delicate variety. This is the reason why most winemakers of the new world choose to plant safer varieties.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    The Caves du Prieuré were created in 1971 by Jacques and Geneviève Guillerault. Nowadays, it is Gilles, their son, who is in charge and willing to use only sustainable methods. The use of chemical products is drastically limited. It is a really meaningful choice in Sancerre as the pinot noir is so delicate and is very sensitive to various attacks.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Before the phylloxera crisis at the end on the 19th Century (that destroyed many of the vineyards in France), Sancerre was better known for its red wines than its white wines. Traumatised by the crisis, the winemakers lost their trust in pinot noir and planted sauvignon so as to make white wines. A few decades later, when they understood that they were safe from the phylloxera, winemakers started planting pinot noir again.

    Beaujolais Villages 2014

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    I chose for you this nice Beaujolais Village by Château de l’Eclair, a winery I especially appreciate as I used to teach there wine tasting to tourists from all over the world ! This wine is a good example of the best Beaujolais can give when it comes to produce simple yet quality wines. I suggest you enjoy this wine before dinner paired with a nice charcuterie board. Will you be able to feel the carbonic maceration ? 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    This variety is often called “gamay noir à jus blanc” which means “black gamay with white juice”. The reason is that this variety is special: it has a very dark skin and a very white flesh. 98% of Beaujolais’ vines are gamay. Therefore, Beaujolais alone produces the two third of gamay grown worldwide. Gamay gives to the wine fresh fruity aromas with sometimes a hint of spice.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    “L’éclair” refers to a device that allows winemakers to easily spray natural fertilisers on the vines. It was invented by Victor Vermorel, a French eccentric politician and inventor. Vermorel bought Château Convert in 1871 from a rich family from Lyon and gave it the name of his invention.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Beaujolais is divided between two kinds of soils: granite in the north and schist in the south. The best wines are elaborated on granitic soils, like the ones on which Château de l’Eclair’s vines are planted. Granite is known to give refinement and freshness to the wines as it stores water deeply and slowly waters the roots one drop after another while providing soft warmth to the grapes.

    Château Saint-Estève 2013, Corbières

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This wine is a deliciousconcentrate of fresh fruits and spices enhanced by just the right amount of woody aromas. The nose is so explosive that once the wine is poured in the glass, it’s really hard to resist to the desire of taking immediately a sip. This wine is a perfect example of the best Languedoc can give. This kind of wine is also very interesting because it’s so consensual that it can be paired with a lot of different dishes. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    This delicious red wine from Corbières is a blend between the four most common grape varieties in Languedoc. Mourvedre is a little fragile, so it was abandoned after the phylloxera crisis. However, this variety gives a lot of complexity and increases the aging potential. Thus, since 1960, mourvedre has been widely re-planted in Provence and Languedoc.

    Ampelomeryx Rouge 2015, Côtes de Gascogne

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Some of you might already know the name of Pellehaut as it’s the third time that one of their wines is in a VitiBox. Once again, the Béraut brothers demonstrate their great ability to mix quality and creativity. Ampéloméryx is indeed a very uncommon blend of pinot noir, syrah and cabernet sauvignon. The result is a fresh wine with remarkably fine tanins and very nice aromas of raspberry and chlorophyll. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Pinot noir is Burgundy’s exclusive black variety, syrah is the main variety in Rhône Valley and cabernet-sauvignon is Bordeaux’s best known variety. As you understand, drinking those three varieties in a single wine is a rather rare experience. It’s even more unexpected in a wine from Gascogne ! Indeed, the main black varieties there are tannat, merlot and cabernet-franc…

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Martin and Mathieu Béraut do not have any organic or biodynamic certification, but the least we can say is that they do their best to preserve environment ! Indeed, they only work with natural products and as we already pointed, they produce themselves most of what they need to grow their vines and cereals. In addition to all that, they invested in sophisticated winemaking tools to consume the less electricity and fuel possible./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Blends are not the only original touch of the Béraut brothers approach. Indeed, they are also advocates of mixed farming. Therefore, at Pellehaut, you’ll not only find vines but also various cereals (mainly corn and wheat) and cows ! The cows are fed with the cereals and give manure that is used to organically grow the vines. Everything makes perfect sense !

    With this blend, the winemaker put the South in a bottle. Indeed, we find in this wine all the qualities of the great southern wines. Grenache gives the wine its unctuous touch and its amplitude in the mouth and Syrah displays beautiful spicy flavours and carries all by its refined tannic structure. Caliente !

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    At the gateway to the Massif de la Clape, the Château le Bouïs welcomes you and has of course the best wines in the area but also and handful of beautiful surprises. The owners imagined an enchanting journey into the mysterious world of vineyards where, through an original staging, you will discover the Arts, Heritage and the 300 years of History of the Castle./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The appellation Corbières surprises by its hillsides where nights stay rather cool. This atypical freshness gives the wines a good ageing potential. Indeed, a fresh climate will allow the grapes to maintain a good acidity. And acidity is one of the key factors in the ability to keep a wine. Scientifically proven !

    Ogier, Dentellis 2015, Gigondas

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Located in the heart of the mountains of Montmirail, this vintage refinement honours the great red wines from the southern part of the Rhone Valley. The nose is subtle and generous : a delicious blend of candied fruits and thyme. A Gigondas full of sun, balanced, with this aromatic power found in all the good wines of the region. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Grenache noir, the famous grape of the southern Rhône Valley, expresses its full potential on the land of Gigondas. Indeed, limiting sunshine in the morning, the mountains of Montmirail allow a good ripening of berries which need time to express themselves better. It dominates the blend and brings to the wines the tannins, the body and a nice ageing potential.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    In the heart of the most mythical appellation of the Southern Rhône Valley, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Maison Ogier has been shining for more than 155 years, elaborating exceptional wines with grapes from the best terroirs. Thus, each of the cuvées is enhanced by a meticulous ageing of wine that expresses all the purity of the fruit and the richness of the terroir./p>

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    I have the pleasure to share with you Le Prince, Old Vines. Finding a Saumur Champigny of this quality with attractive prices became quite a hard task because of several small harvests. The vineyard of Rocheville is increasingly known for its quality wines and its magnificent estate (we invite you to go there, I was received as if I was a Prince ...). 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Cabernet franc is the only variety allowed in the appellation. It is sensitive to heat and dehydrates quickly but thanks to the local clay-limestone soils, the grapes have a regular supply of water which allows the good development. It is distinguished by its fine aromatic, its aromas of red and black fruits and its small note of pepper that make its originality and elegance.

    Château Lieujean 2012, Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This month, we chose Chateau Lieujean, one of the best Cru Bourgeois in Médoc. It is deeply concentrated, with intense flavours of black berries, delicate woody aromas. Tannins are very present yet quite silky, and the length is long and juicy. A very complete and tasty Bordeaux.  

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    In Medoc, all wines are blends. And the two main varieties by far are Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon, the second one being almost all the time dominant. This blend gives intense wines with a good ageing potential, marked by aromas of black and red berries, and often completed by elegant flavours of leather or mushrooms if the wine already is a few years old.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Lieujean Family is acknowledged in Bordeaux as early as 1868. The Estate was already known back then to give wines with a strong personality. Since 2011, Chateau is ranked vintage after vintage in the Cru Bourgeois ranking that distinguished all the great wines in Bordeaux that were not ranked Grand Cru Classé in 1855. /p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Located in Saint-Sauveur, next to Pauillac, Lieujean is close to the Garonne River, which plays the role of a temperature regulator. The soil is made of graves, medium round pebbles typical from Bordeaux that keep the warmth of the sun during the day to give it back to grapes at night. That’s why the wine is so concentrated.

    La Sérénité 2009, Pessac-Léognan

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the wine taster

    This Pessac-Léognam does credit to its designation. It was vinified in the purest tradition of Bordeaux by the team of the winery Pape Clément, his famous neighbour (another propriety of Bernard Magrez). Why the Serenity? Because the winemakers have to be patient and temperate to best express these vineyards.… 

    Feuille

     Grape variety

    A typical blending of this designation. The merlot gives the suppleness, whereas the cabernet sauvignon will bring structure and a tannic force that increase the keeping potential. The aromas of this grape variety get more intense when tasted after 18 month of aging in oak barrels.

     Winemaker

    The Roy-Trocard family purchased its first vineyards in the Libournais in 1628. We can say that they know about wine and...they love it! Jean and Bénédicte Trocard, managers of this winery, said: “The product that we produce, the wine, is the result of soil, sky and men’s passion”.

    Terroir

     The Mancèdre winery extends for 11 hectares on the east side of Pessac-Léognan. The vineyard flourishes on a soil made of gravels coming from the Pyrenees. Gravels give strength and lightness to wine. Grapevines also benefit from an excellent hydric regulation and natural poverty of soil, elements necessary to obtain ripened and concentred grapes.

    Château Grand Lartigue 2009, Grand Cru, Saint Emilion

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    2009 is one of the best vintages Saint-Emilion ever produced. One could even compare it to the legendary 2005 vintage, known to have been the best vintage in Bordeaux for decades. Thus, it was important to me to select a wine that could introduce you to great Bordeaux vintages. And of all the wines I tasted, Château Grand Lartigue was the one showing best this wonderful combination of strength, fruit and tannins that 2009 gave us. This wine is to be paired with you best meals!

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Cabernet franc is widespread in the right bank of Bordeaux, but also in the Loire Valley ! The terroir allows it to reach maturity one week before the cabernet sauvignon does, which allows the winemakers to take more time to protect the grapes during the harvest. It is widely grown in Saint- Emilion, and is even the main variety used for one of the most famous wine in the world: Château Cheval Blanc (60%). It is less tannic than cabernet sauvignon, so it ages faster and can be drunk earlier.

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Summer is definitely the best time of the year to present you a nice rosé. This one will bring you straight to the south of France ! Maybe you are sometime not very careful when tasting a rosé.

    Grape variety

    Grenache is one of the main varieties around the Mediterranean Sea. It gives dry red and rosé wines. It is notably known to be the mostly grown variety in Spain.
