Horst Sauer's Silvaner "Just" (pronounced "yoost") has been making a lot of friends.

Why is this the wine from the unfamiliar Franconia region of Germany and from the unheralded Silvaner grape the wine of the summer? Easy, it's got all the characteristics we're looking for in a great summer wine; refreshing fruit character, crisp acidity, and bone dry at a light 11.5% alcohol. Eminently drinkable in a wide variety of situations, with food or solo. Also, it's no simpleton, behind the graceful frame is a core of yellow stone fruits and a lingering, savory finish that provides interest, revealing more with each sip.

We suggest picking up a bottle and give it a try!

Great Wines Have A Story: Jean Manciat, Mâcon-Charnay 2019, $19.99

I first became aware of Jean Manciat's wine in the early 2000's. This was a period of great and exciting change in the wine industry in New York. There was a movement afoot as a few passionate importers were dedicating themselves, building their businesses and reputations on seeking out and importing honest, authentic wines produced by small family wineries. Joe Dressner was one such importer making a name for himself doing exactly that and it was through the folks at his company that I first tasted these wines.

We didn't think much of the Macon at the time. Pouilly-Fuissé was well known and made some quality wines, but the rest of the region was dominated by large cooperatives churning out vast quantities of industrially made vapid wine with no character. But my first taste of the Manciat wine wasn't this at all, oh no, to the contrary it was alive and expressive. In fact, a life changer, a revelation. Indeed, what we didn't know at the time was that the region was going through a transformation. This is a story that I've described in more detail in a blog on the VWM website.
https://villagewinemerchant.com/blogs/news/the-revitalized-maconnais

As true today as it was then, the Manciat Macon-Charnay bursts forth with vibrant yellow stone fruits, nectarine, peach, and apricot. This is not a shy wine. It's full and round showing a honeyed quality with hints of white flowers and mineral in the finish that speaks of the soil. No oak. One amazing thing about this wine is that's it's accessible and complex at the same time. This is a wine for everybody. If you think that you "don't like Chardonnay?" This is for you. Heck, if you think that you "don't like white wine", this could be a life changer. If you're an experienced wine drinker and you love white Burgundy, you will appreciate the heft, grace, and interest that the wine expresses.

It's just a delicious wine. In fact, the wine is still part of the Louis/Dressner portfolio and it's one of the first wines we brought in at VWM when we started 7 years ago. We couldn't be happier.

04/06/2021

In 1981, French winemaker Marcel Lapierre and three of his friends in the Beaujolais region bucked the contemporary trend and dedicated their efforts to a return to traditional and time honored methods. They worked the vineyards as a sustainable ecosystem and eschewed the synthetic herbicides and pesticides that had become common practice in the 20th century. Their wines were made without manipulation using organic and biodynamic methods. Lapierre and his friends were dubbed the "Gang of Four" by the wine trade and were paramount to the movement that we now call "Natural Wines" and "Clean Wines."

Raisins Gaulois (loosely "grapes from historical France") is 100% Gamay from the Cru Beaujolais village of Morgon. It is light, lively, and delicious. We have always carried the wine here at VWM. Now it's popularity is unbounded and unfortunately we only see a few allocations each year.

The good news is that the 2020 has arrived and it's currently available. If you are interested in an ongoing piece of wine history we're happy to set aside a purchase for you.
If you’d like to purchase a bottle, stop by, call the shop (516-200-9370), or email Michael to reserve a bottle for pickup.

A Special Barbera: De Forville Barbera "Ca' Del Buc" 2018, $17.99
Barbera is known as "the people's wine”- it's the choice for everyday drinking in Piedmont while the more noble (and expensive) Nebbiolo from Barolo and Barbaresco need aging. Straightforward and unadulterated, it's what the locals drink.
Enter De Forville, a family with roots going back to the mid-nineteenth century in Barbaresco. Organic practices and manual harvesting. It's winemaking that exudes tradition, care, and authenticity.

The "Ca' Del Buc" is harvested from a Cru vineyard a little east of Barbaresco. It's fermented in stainless steel and racked into large Slavonian oak barrels before bottling. It shows bright red fruits with a bit of depth and notes of rosebud and game -uncommon for most Barbera.

Try it with a ragù, a wood fired pizza with mushrooms, sausage and peppers, an eggplant parmagiana hero, or a shell steak seared in a cast iron skillet. I love it.
If you’d like to purchase a bottle, stop by, call the shop (516-200-9370), or email Michael to reserve a bottle for pickup.
