Alexandre M Mon Chenin Cuvee 20 NV is made from 100% Chenin Blanc.
Mon Chenin means "My Chenin". This is MY PERSONAL view of the Chenin blanc from France.
Floral and fresh white fruits. Mouth with floral character and yellow fruits. Finish clean fresh and dry.
Serve as Apéritif, seafood, fishes with buttery sauce, Asian cuisine, hard cheeses.
Alexandre M is one of our latest project from the Loire Valley from one of our oldest connection/friendship. Alexandre Monmousseau sold Chateau Gaudrelle a few years back and he is now "playing" with some small cuvées elaborated by some of his friends he made along his adventure.
Alexandre M Mon Mouss Petillant Naturel NV is made from 100% Chenin Blanc.
Mon Mouss is my nick name at school. Monmousseau = Mon Mouss.
Mousseux means bubbly ... Mon Mouss is also a play of word meaning MY BUBBLY.
The wine is a Pet'nat' produced using a Methode Ancestrale. Lime tree and litchi with apple and pear flavors.
Serve as Aperitif or with seafood, oysters, light hard cheeses, and just for fun, by itself.
Louis Jadot Montrachet Grand Cru is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.
Le Montrachet is situated to the south of the Côte de Beaune, on both villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (like the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru).
The terroir is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition.
The Montrachet is produced with Chardonnay
Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. Grapes are pressed softly, they ferment in oak barrels produced by our cooperage. 1/3 are new barrels. Aging usually lasts 15 months on fine lies before bottling.
Aromas of buttered toast, honeyed peaches, white flowers and mint introduce the 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot), a full-bodied, layered and enveloping wine that's satiny and sumptuous, with lively acids and fine depth at the core. While I'd give the nod to the stunning Demoiselles as Jadot's best white wine this year, this Montrachet—purchased from the Chassagne-Montrachet side, from the house's usual source—is undeniably promising.

Alexandre M Vouvray Brut Methode Traditionnelle is made from 100% Chenin Blanc.
Tasting: Nose lime tree flower and brioche.
Mouth: complex and very expressive, so fresh and balanced with a smooth touch in mouth, bubbles so small who just tease the tang, light and good length.
ZERO DOSAGE !
Aperitif, seafood, oysters, light hard sheeses, and just for fun
Alexandre M Vouvray La Serpette Tendre is made from 100% Chenin Blanc.
Nose of coconut and slightly vanilla. The very "Caribbean" mouth of nutmeg brown sugar, white rum and candied citrus fruits. Like a sweet wine, without the sugar.
La Serpette (pruning knife) is one of the most important vintner's tool. This is the symbol of the work made by hand, just to express the very important part of hand making in wine which reflect the terroir. Wine is not "made" in the cellar as everything stars in the vineyards, from the vineplant.
Asian cuisine as well as exotic food. Well pair with spices. Nice with the classic foie gras and with matured cheeses.
Convento Oreja Memorias Reserva is made from 100 percent 100% Tempranillo.
The wine comes from a special vineyard at 950 meters altitude. The cuvee is called MEMORIA to pay tribute to good friends and great time spent together.
Deep cherry color. On the nose, the wine is elegant and well balanced with black fruits, reminiscent of vanilla and leather. Hints of spices, minerals and coffee. On the palate the wine is also well balanced and pleasant. Round and elegant with a long and pleasing aftertaste.
Pairs well with pastas, creams and soups. Likewise, these wines are ideal for more subtle and elaborate first courses, like a rice with lobster.
Ideal for grilled red meats and stews and game stews and for the typical roast lamb.

Montebuena Blanco is made from 80% Viura and 20% Tempranillo Blanco.
What truly sets Montebuena apart is its unique position where the Ebro river is closest to the Sierra Cantabria mountains, creating a blend of Mediterranean and Continental climates that prevents an excess of rain and extreme cold. In addition, the shallow, calcareous soil limits the yield of the harvest and the size of the grapes while increasing the volume of the skins, resulting in deeper color and a greater concentration of flavor.
Montebuena Blanco is straw yellow colored, translucent with greyish hues at the edges. Dominant white fruit aromas of apple and ripe banana on the nose with citrus notes in the background. Fresh and intense on the palate, although the acidity gradually smoothes out as the wine passes through the mouth and gives way to sweetness combined with a slightly bitter note and silky feel that balances the first sensation.
Fresh salads and vegetables, grilled fish, young cheeses, seafood and shellfish.
Roland Champion Champagne Le Cul du Singe Brut Nature is made from 100% Pinot Meunier.
The special Story about the name "Cul du Singe" (literally "Monkey's butt"):
"In the 70's, my Grandfather Roland and my Father François wanted to buy new lands to plant vines, but nothing was available at that time in Chouilly. They found some parcels in the Marne Valley, in the village of Verneuil. "Le cul du singe" was one of them.
One day, while my father and grandfather were both working in the plot to clean it up, an old man from the village came and watched them. Roland and François asked him why this parcel had this name. The old man remained silent for a long time, turned his beret on his head several times and said to them: Have you ever seen anything grow on a monkey’s ass? and he left without saying more.
For him, Roland and François were two strangers completely mad who wanted to grow a vineyard on this wild land!" - Carole CHAMPION
The Champagne Cul du Singe shows a brilliant gold color with coppery reflections - a hallmark of black grape varieties. In the glass, a fine effervescence nourishes a delicate and persistent foam cord. A fruity and jovial nose displays floral aromas and delicate red fruits. The palate is luscious, tonic and juicy with an energetic sap. A finish with bitter notes and grapefruit peel.
Mt Monster Shiraz is 100 percent Shiraz
Deep purple in color. Ripe cassis and black plum fruits on the nose with violets. Varietal fruit-driven palate, with cassis and dark berryfruit and spice flavors. Soft tannins compliment the fruit with mouth-filling generous finish.
French & American oak has been used sparingly to ensure maximum fruit expression is retained in the final wine.
Our Shiraz is fermented in static fermenters at controlled temperatures to retain the varietal aromatics. Once complete the wine is left for 7–10 days on skins to aide in the extraction of soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.
