Emma's Ever Changing Loire Valley 3 Pack
Some of my favorite wines in the shop also happen to from the Loire Valley! I love these wines because they each showcase a light, super gulpable expression of Loire Valley wines, with their superb minerality being the star of the show. If you're you're a fan of Loire Valley like I am, check back regularly to see my latest three picks.
The Louise Chereau 'Orgueil' Brut Loire Valley (Muscadet), France NV is hands down one of my favorite sparkling wines in the shop. 100% Melon de Bourgogne from the Muscadet region, this wine offers vigorous, Champagne-esque bubbles with a refeshingly light and mineral palate, finishing with just a touch of salinity characteristic of wines from Muscadet. Unlike any other sparkling wine you might have tried, this is a absolutely a must have.

Arnaud Lambert "Clos Mazurique" Cabernet Franc Loire Valley (Saumur) France 2021
Though Chateau Brézé has been revered since the 17th Century (once fetching a barrel to barrel exchange for the legendary Chat. d'Yquem Sauternes), it wasn't until this young winemaker took the reins in 2009 that folks started talking about the estate's Cab Franc. Lambert brings Burgundian training and sensibilities to the winemaking here, converting the vineyards to organic farming and honing in on each specific site's distinct nature, with laser precision.
Clos Mazurique sits on ancient tuffeau limestone, imparting a standout acidity to wines grown here, both red and white. This Cab Franc is no exception, with a textured, linear palate of acidity. We also get wet forest, red fruits and flowers on the nose, with light, airy tannins and a gravelly minerality to finish. Such a lovely Loire wine, from a producer we predict you'll be hearing more about in the future...
