The P’tit Barriot is named in honor of Marc’s infant daughter and represents the freshness and brightness the region has to offer. The Blanc is 100% Macabeu aged in used oak barrels. It has notes of persimmon, quince and dried papaya. There is a clear saline quality, with a rich and mineral-driven finish.

This 100% Macabeu from southwest France (though you may know the varietal more prominently as one of Cava's blending grapes) is a picture of balance and subtlety. It shows plenty of stony and smoky minerals lovingly wrapped in ripe apples, citrus peel, and accents of fennel. Bright but extremely well-integrated acidity frames the medium bodied palate, and drives it to a focused, compelling finish. While this gem is a little off the beaten path, lovers of elegant white wine must not miss it.

While this is one of their whites that does not see extended skin contact, it certainly still has some of those qualities. The nose is very expressive showing salinity, bitter almonds, fennel, and lemon. The palate is light yet creamy, with notes of apple, pear and tons of minerality... it’s like licking wet cobblestone and limestone, I’m in love!!!

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
