The Upgrade Case - Domaine Moreux Corty Artisan Sancerre 2020
We all know the expression about dangling a carrot in front of someone. But what if this entire case of wine is ‘carrots’ so to speak?
You’ll get 11 bottles of Roc De Belame Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc 2021, probably enough in itself to make this case find its way to your cart. But why stop there? We’ve added the ultimate carrot, a bottle of Domaine Moreaux Corty Artisan Sancerre 2020, which is nothing short of a showstopper. All carrots, no sticks...that’s how we roll.
What’s in the Case?
Each case contains the following:
1 bottle of Domaine Moreux Corty Artisan Sancerre 2020
Loire Valley, France
This Loire Valley estate dates back to 1677 - woah! That’s a jaw-dropping thirteen generations of winemaking history and expertise, the results of which are obvious in their wonderful wines. Most of their vineyards are in Pouilly-Fumé, except for this one which is on the other side of the river in Sancerre. This is the homeland and beating heart of sauvignon blanc. If you are not yet impressed, the wine will no doubt get you there. It’s ripe and medium-bodied, full of fruit and minerality. The fruit spectrum ranges from stone fruit to fresh green apple, and pretty white flowers abound. Although the wine doesn’t see any oak, there is a bit of lees work, resulting in a great texture.
YOU’D PAY $60 full price.
11 bottles of Roc De Belame Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Here’s one we discovered by accident. And a happy accident it was. The first time we picked this up was due to the pandemic (need we say more) and it provided a bright drop in a dark time. It’s sauv blanc from Gascogne, a region in southwest France that borders upon Spain and the Atlantic. It’s perhaps most famous for being the home of Cyrano de Bergerac and d’Artagnan, but we’re here today for the wine. There’s pears, peaches and some flintiness on the nose. On the palate it is a completely dry wine, but has a certain richness with hints of honey, compote and some citrus to contrast. It’s super lively with a nice balance of fruit sweetness (yet in a dry wine) and minerality.
YOU’D PAY $22 full price.
