Blanc 32, Vin de Pays Cotes de Gascogne 2018. Pale, tart and dry wiht a round mouthfeel. This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano by another name), Colombard and Gros Manseng. Tangy and dry with a citrusy finish, this wine is totally devoid of the grapefruit aromas that attend most Sauvignon Blanc. With a tart citrus fruit finish, it would pair well with foods from simple cheese to shellfish.

Noir 46, Cahors Malbec, 2012. Medium ruby color, red berry nose and red berry and cherry fruit. Medium finish. A softer expression of Cahors Malbec. Little oak or neutral oak.

Maison Tramier Cotes du Rhone Linteau 2016. 70% Grenache/30% Syrah. Medium ruby color, red plum nose. Juicy tart red cherry fruit on the palage. Vibrant tannins with a medium finish.

Chateau Sainte-Pierre Rose Cotes de Provence. Pale salmon color, 60% Cinsault with only 40% Grenache. Pink salmon color, stonefruit nose (nectarine), tart and dry with a medium finish.
