Martha Kelly's Picks

This past month we received several new exciting wines from the Southwest region of France. While they are all quite intriguing, (See Alanna’s blogpost) the one that immediately stood out to me was the 2018 Chateau Clamens Juliette. There were two things that first caught my eye;  the wine is a brilliant, deeply pigmented golden yellow, and it is made from 100% Gros Manseng grapes.

I love having the opportunity to try a single varietal wine of something we more commonly experience blended.  The nose is a delightful complex blend of fruit and floral aromatics: citrus, pear and delicate stone fruit and white flowers. A generous amount of acidity helps to balance the off-dry sweetness of the wine, with tropical fruit and citrus united, with a lovely roundness on the palate. This is a versatile wine, finding its home anywhere from Sunday Brunch to the patio, or in the evening paired alongside a traditional ham dinner or after dinner cheese plate( Do yourself a favour and don’t forget the blue cheese).
