Cabernet Franc, Loire Valley, France | If only the real Greta Garbo had lived long enough to see & appreciate this stunning, vivacious red from Sébastien and Eméline of Domaine Bobinet. Just like Garbo, Carbo is a legend, an infamous cult wine with an unattainable elegance that unites wine snobs & everyday drinkers alike. Carbo is, of course, a nod to carbonic maceration, the mode of vinification used to give this single-parcel Cab Franc its dazzlingly bright & luscious red fruit flavours, like a hyper-pigmented Cab Franc with the volume turned to a hair-raising 10. Hazy sandalwood incense meets a silky, glossy texture with whimsical depth from 60 year old vines and eight months in old oak. Vegetal, fruity and peppery all at once, this is captivating & spellbinding, rich & refined, an engrossing experience to share only with those who Get It. Cab Franc’s signature greenness shows up to the party, followed by a dash of black pepper, cherry lollipop, strawberry Twizzler, forest, filth & squishy mud between your toes. Pairs perfectly with black velvet, water signs & sapphires thrown into the ocean. Drink on the night of the full moon.
Chenin Blanc, Loire Valley, France | Les Gruches is a higher-end cuvée of Chenin Blanc vinified from two clay-limestone plots in Saumur, one with extremely low-yield, 80 year old vines. This is a dense & expressive wine with an innate quality of wisdom & easy sophistication. Speaking of wisdom, this wine is cellarable for up to five years after release, softening & filling out as it matures. In its youth (AKA if you can’t or won’t wait, which we can’t blame you for), it’s giving leaner Vouvray — lithe as opposed to ample, sexy & austere like Jerry Hall in a white silk pantsuit — Asian pear & honeydew melon countered by heaps of glistening minerals. Ginger chews, honeyed apricot, caramel drizzle & a squeeze of lemon with a taut core of ruthless acidity that makes it perfect for things like lush lobster in cream sauce. Drinking a glass makes you feel like a way classier and slinkier version of yourself instantaneously; you just want to sashay around the house and call everyone “dahhhling,” even your cat.
