Coming from families who have been growing grapes in Champagne since 1710, René and Marie-Noelle Dautel started producing their own champagne in 1971. Sylvain Dautel, their son, is now in charge of the vineyard located in Loches-Sur-Ource, a small village in the heart of Côte des Bars. Sylvain is perpetuating the tradition of his ancestors, using environmental friendly practices to create the most delicate, yet intense Champagnes. Cuvée René-Marie Catel is a rare Brut Blanc de Noirs (100% Pinot Noir), aged for two years on lees before disgorgement.

Richly rounded, lightly sweet and exquisitely fruity bouquet as well as a typical warm red color. The deliberately discreet addition of sugar triggers a perfect balance between tart and sweet notes.
Bodega DiamAndes Rosado
Uco Valley, Argentina
You don't see many 100% Malbec rosés in the market, so this is a novel wine. It has strawberry and mild citrus notes and quite a bit of structure on the palate; this is a rosé to pair with food, rather than to be enjoyed merely as an aperitif. It has enough character to stand up to BBQ, red meats, or fattier vegetarian dishes. Vegan-friendly wine.
Domaine de Stricou Incipio Carignan Blanc NEW
Incipio displays notes of verbena and jasmine on the nose followed by perfectly ripe white peach notes.
On the palate the wine is rich yet fresh and vibrant with nice salinity, ocean spray and a
touch of mint.
Farina Lugana NEW
Straw yellow with greenish shades. Elegant and fresh, it reminds of wild flowers, mini mum flowers and linden, which evolve in apricot and white flesh fruits, delicate, smooth, sapid and very harmonic. Ideal with fish, white meats and soft cheeses. An excellent aperitif.
Salcheto Chianti "Biskero" NEW
An easy drinking, everyday wine composed of Sangiovese (85%),
Canaiolo, Mammolo and Merlot. Part of this wine is matured in 300-liter American oak “tonneaux." Vintage 2021 has been characterized, once again, by intense climatic phenomenon such as frost and drought. Its wines are proposing a robust and intense experience.
Pair with fatty or cheesy dishes.
Rapel Valley, Chile
This wine shows an attractive bright violet color. In its aroma ripe plums and confit figs mingle with a touch of mocha and tobacco. It is a fresh, tasty and juicy wine, full of soft and sweet tannins. It is a modern wine with perfect balance between fruit and wood, which brings complexity and elegance. Great choice to accompany spicy pasta and meat, soft cheeses and stews. Ideal with gratin eggplants.
Mad Fish Cabernet Sauvignon
The color is a rich deep ruby and leads you to an enticing nose brimming with succulent dark berry fruits supported by hints of raspberry, mocha, savory spice and rosemary. The palate offers great vibrancy and depth of flavor – black and blue berries, redcurrants, plum compote and roasted chestnuts mingle with alluring coffee and cocoa and a minty earthiness. Supple tannins allow this wide array of flavors to enliven and excite the mid palate and then linger on the finish.
