Friday Wine Tasting with Charlotte and Gary from Old World Wines

The Rose d’Aramon is from the Languedoc, south-central France, off the Mediteranean Sea. The grape Aramon is dark skinned. The juice inside is clear. So they crush the grapes and leave the skins for 12 hours, which bleeds the rose color. 2013, so a young wine meant to be consumed now.
The Petit Chablis is from northwest Burgundy, the Village of Chablis. It is 100% Chardonnay.  It is fermented in stainless steel and bottled. No oak at all. What Chardonnay should taste like.  2012, a young wine, and it will improve for 2 years
The Aligote is our best selling white. It is from Central Burgundy. Most Burgundy whites are Chardonnay, Aligote is the other white grape. It is round, floral. 2011, so it has some bottle age and is at it’s peak.
