Fancy a taste of what the Club selection is all about? Check out this trio - a delicious suite of bottles for natural wine novices and seasoned drinkers alike. They're organically farmed, low-intervention in the cellar, made by cult producers, they have excitingly varied flavor profiles and there's even a mature example... who said natural wine can't age. Hand-picked by our founder, Isabelle Legeron MW, just like all our monthly boxes.
*Price includes shipping, a gift note, Isabelle's tasting notes and a selection of producer interviews.
Wines included are:
Muchada-Léclapart, Univers, Andalusia, Spain, 2017
This white wine is unusual. It was not aged under flor as is the tradition for the production of sherry but the wine definitely hints at its origins. Concentrated and racy, it is salty, with aromas of fresh nuts (almost flor-like), iodine and lime zest.
Testalonga, Stay Brave, Swartland, South Africa, 2021
A skin contact Chenin Blanc that is a great introductory choice for even the most ardently orange-wine skeptical friend coming over for dinner. It is a delicate, pretty Chenin Blanc with uplifting notes of citrus peel, ripe cumquat, bee pollen and a slightly waxy texture. Tannins are light, with just enough presence to give the wine a bite without dominating.
Clos Lentiscus, Perill Noir, Sumoll, Spain, 2012
If you ever thought natural wine could not age, think again! An elegant red wine, still showing some bright red cherry fruits even though the tertiary, developmental notes come to the fore, with dried rose petal, cedar spices and earthy undertones. Tannins have completely mellowed and are beautifully integrated.
