- Clos Ste. Magdeleine Bouches du Rhone Blanc Baume Noire 2018$39.98Availability:In StockImporter notes: Believing that Clos Sainte Magdeleine’s proximity to the Mediterranean and limestone soil was perfect for Vermentino, Kermit long tried to convince the Sack family to plant the grape variety and make a white wine from it. About five years ago, they finally did. The 2018 is the first vintage of this simultaneously crisp, succulent, and saline blanc. It is a beautiful first bottling that thoroughly justifies the experiment. Learn More

- Clos Nicrosi Coteaux du Cap Corse Blanc 2016$31.98Availability:In StockVermentino has many manifestations, from the crisp, high pitched versions that that come from Liguria and other parts of Sardinia that show a little hint of the sea, the somewhat riper rounder versions that seems to be popping up from Tuscany, and the somewhat steely versions from southern France (where the grape is called Rolle). We have tasted many versions of all of them, but we can’t say we ever had one like this.This is from a unique spot, situated on Cap Corse, a finger-like peninsula on the northern coast of Corsica. that juts northward into the Tyrrhenian Sea. This rugged area is a distinctive display of seascapes and vineyards. Located on the coast near the village of Rogliano, Clos Nicrosi has been cared for by the same family since 1859. The story goes that one Dominique Nicrosi left the island penniless, made his fortune in the southern U.S. (Alabama to be specific), and then left the U.S. because of the coming winds of the Civil War.
