Founded in 1877 by Jean Bouillot the estate of Louis Bouillot is a specialist Crémant de Bourgogne producer now run by Jean-Claude Boisset and it produces a range of excellent Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wines from sites across the Côte d’Or.
Pezat is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The wine comes from a specific vineyard called ‘La Plagnolle’ which we converted into a vineyard that would sit happier in the Saint Emilion Appellation than Bordeaux. Vine density was doubled and the height of the original vines was reduced by half. This wine has complex aromas of rose petals and plums follow through to a medium to full body. Round, soft tannins and a savory finish.
The nose opens up with sweet scent of elder and pear blossom and develops into apricot, pineapple and melon. In the mouth it is deep, mellow and very harmonious with a full body, soft and round mouthfeel and a note of spice and oak on the finish.
From the seventeenth century until 1935, in Carrù there were two famous spinning mills for silkworms. A traditional beer, even beer.
Golden and opalescent, it is an easy to drink Blanche. On the nose, summer scents of orange peel prevail; when tasted, it is the coriander that invades the mouth, closing in a well-balanced finish. The body is velvety, thanks to the wheat, and the persistent foam.
Pair it with finger food, fried and fish-based main courses or sushi and sashimi.
Color: opalescent blond
Alcohol content: 4.8% alc.

Dolcetto wines are known for cherry and licorice with some prune flavours and a slight bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. While the name implies sweetness, the wines are normally dry. The dark purple skin of Dolcetto grapes have high amounts of anthocyanins, which require only a short maceration time with the grape skin to produce a dark coloured wine. The amount of skin to contact affects the resulting tannin levels in the wine, with most winemakers preferring to limit the maceration time to as short as possible.

Blonde, with deep golden reflections, it is a drinkable American Pale Ale. Fierce and full of character, it lets the herbaceous and wheat aromas accompany the aromatic nuances of hops to the sip. The finish is wisely bitter. The body is medium and the foam persistent.
Pair it with grilled meats, your favorite pizza or spicy Tex-Mex dishes.
