Maranges Vieilles Vignes 2013

Situated in the southernmost region of Cote-d’Or, in the Cote de Beaune region, the Maranges appellation produces some of the best value Pinot Noir in most of Burgundy. The owner Joseph Matrot comes from a long lineage of winemakers dating back as far as 1881. His family started with small holdings in Puligny-Montrachet and throughout the years acquired more vineyards in the Cote du Beaune. Today their holdings cover 22,586 ha in the Cote d’Or with some of his more popular holdings in Meursault, Volnay and Blagny. The Matrot Maranges Vieilles Vignes is harvested from vines averaging 60 years old, producing small yields of concentrated fruit. This Pinot Noir spends 11 months in oak barrels following a light filtration before bottling. The Matrot Maranges displays a concentration of black fruits with hints of earth and spice making it a great accompany to poultry, grilled steak and sauce.

Massican Annia White

Massican

Annia White 2014

Massican is named after the coastal mountain range in southern Italy however their inspiration for their wines comes from the north. Their pursuit of unique, memorable wine have made them a superstar in Napa Valley. Massican is a breath of fresh air in a county known for their buttery, oaky Chardonnay. A traditional but unique blend in Napa Valley, the Massican Annia is a blend of Tocai Friulano 45%, Chardonnay 32% and Ribolla Gialla 23%, an ode to the white wines of Friuli, Italy. Bright, focused and balanced, the Massican Annia has aromas of lemon, wild herbs, and chamomile. Bright acidity, medium weight in body, the flavors are rich and balanced and will pair well with any type of seafood. I personally love this with the classic Italian fish stew cioppino, a tomato based stew with sea scallops, clams and mushrooms!
