Plush & Textured Whites
Roussette, Savoie, France
With Jura to the north and Switzerland to the east, one would think that the alpine region of Savoie would be inhospitable towards grape growing. But with a combination of perfect sun exposure, mountainous slopes and the moderating influence of rivers and lakes, this region produces some especially powerful white wines! Fermented with natural yeasts and aged on the lees, Altesse is biodynamic and silky AF, all grapefruit zest, green almond, macadamia, pine nut/resin, fresh honeycomb & a real shock of straight-up strawberry with a savoury & salty finish. Drink with an impossibly cool European woman who smokes everywhere, drives like a maniac and has the coolest apartment you've ever seen.
Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay, Loire Valley, France
Lucky You indeed! Oldies but goodies Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay move to Brooklyn, get lightly tattooed, & have the sexiest messy ponytails you have ever seen. Lucky You is like falling in love with your best friend, a glass of house white wine in perfect punk rock heaven, a blend of 80% old vines Sauvignon Blanc & 20% Chardonnay. Grapes are whole cluster pressed into stainless steel, unfined & unfiltered with a minute amount of added sulphites. Acacia honey, lime leaf and crunchy pear meet wet stone and gauzy golden silk. Apple juicebox nose, scratching the skin off an almond with your fingernail, spicy nectarine, eating an apricot in a field of white flowers. Lucky You makes us crave a dimly lit bar in a major international city: marble countertops, white linen shirts & raw edge denim, phone number scrawled on a cocktail napkin in ballpoint pen.
Listán Blanco, Canary Islands, Spain
Envinate, which means ‘Wine Yourself!’ is a Spanish winemaking collaborative founded by four friends hailing from four different regions of Spain. These highly individualistic wines are made with the goal of expressing the distinctive terroirs of Spain and its Atlantic coastline. Benje Blanco is high-toned, high-spirited & high-strung, a high-altitude volcanic white with partial skin contact, some concrete aging, some oaking, & even some sherry-style aging under flor! The end result is a salty oystery masterpiece, smoky-eyed & raspy, with notes of cerignola olive, bruised yellow apple & flaky pastry plus a meandering mineral finish. Sexy & smart, sip while solving a cryptic crossword confidently in fountain pen.
