Product Description

Loustalet Buzet Blanc 65% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadelle

The nose is intense, flattering yet remaining elegant and complex with floral nuances delicately highlighted by vanilla notes. The attack is ample with volume and a remarkable "sugariness". There is an acidity that is present but never excessive and brings a delicate freshness to this complex wine that can be served as an aperitif or during a gourmet meal.

The grapes were harvested at maximum ripeness, at the end of the night in order to benefit from the cool temperatures and thus preserve all their aromatic capital. Following a short maceration with the skins, the juice is gently extracted by pneumatic pressing. After careful racking, the juice is fermented at a low temperature. At the end of fermentation, the wine is matured on its fine yeast lees for 6 months to "feed it", bringing volume and greater complexity.

This wine would be perfect with fish, poultry and dishes served in a sauce. Can also be served as an aperitif.

Avennia Sestina Red Blend 2015

Avennia Sestina Red Blend is made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

The Sestina is a poetic form from Medieval France. Just as a contemporary poet can use an old form like the Sestina to express modern ideas, we use the traditional Bordeaux blend to make modern wines that express Washington fruit. Sestina is our vision for an old vine blend where the focus is on structure, balance, and complexity. This wine is designed for the cellar, but is enjoyable now.

Sestina: This wine is a blockbuster, with black currant, black raspberry, saddle leather, freshly tilled earth, vanilla, and violet on the nose. Exceedingly rich and balanced on the palate, with great poise and structure for long aging. The finish echoes with fresh black fruits, minerally touches, and floral notes.

Review:

"The 2015 Sestina is showing very well, offering up a rich, more exuberant bouquet than the 2014 rendition. This emphasizes notes of cassis, black plums, dark chocolate, espresso roast and a subtle framing of new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied and lavish but controlled, with an ample, more sun-kissed core of fruit and fine-grained structuring tannins. Like the 2014, it's a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. While the 2014 and 2015 are quite different in style, it's hard to choose between them qualitatively. While it needs a few years in the cellar, I suspect the 2015 will hit its peak sooner. - William Kelley"
