Dive deep into the sunny Languedoc region thanks to this carefully crafted wine set

Languedoc designates a large part of the South of France, from the tiptoes of the Pyrenees Mountain range near the Spanish boarder to the Rhône delta near Avignon, always facing the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.

Down there the climate is hot, dry and windy roughly all year long which helps keeping at bay various vine related diseases like mildew, a fungus that eats both leaves and grapes. These unique conditions make Languedoc for a wonderful wine growing region: not too difficult to look after while also pushing the vines to dig deep and extract precious nutrients and minerals from the soil. As a result, most of the vineyards are labelled organic.

All that being said, what should you expect from Languedoc?

First of all, Languedoc is a land of experiment. Many winemakers don’t have to follow such strict winemaking or winegrowing rules as in Bordeaux for example. This has the great advantage of letting them choose what story they want to tell with their terroir.
Secondly, Languedoc is highly multicultural. You can find there very famous grapes like Chardonnay of Merlot, but also more confidential varietals like Carignan or Roussanne. If you have strong feelings towards certain grapes from certain countries, then you should definitely try out their Languedoc counterparts. In other words, if you’ve ever said “I dislike Syrah” or “I only drink Chardonnay”, trust me you need to Languedoc yourself !

How to?
Well, that’s easy: we just happen to have a 2-bottle wine set ready for you! The red, made from a 100% Carignan grape, is a generous bouquet of sweet spice while the white, made of Chardonnay, focuses on aromas of peach, apricot and white flowers.

The smells of charcoal, smoke and meat cooking over an open flame are some of the most iconic scents of summer. But just because you’re cooking outside doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to some spectacular wine. Right?

Whether you're firing up the grill right before dinner or waking up at dawn in order to get your slow-smoked barbecue going, many people tend to focus on beer pairings. And while beer is deeply appealing for sure, wine too can elevate the BBQ game, and with style!

Beef, chicken, pork or even burgers: apéro. selection is a great fit with any grilled meat or vegetables you and your friends will throw on the BBQ.

Rose Garnier, Bordeaux

100% Merlot
Château La Rose Garnier by Jean-Yves Millaire : a wine with a magnificent ruby color, a nose of smoke and spice and a mouth of juicy strawberries and raspberries. This gourmet wine is beautiful balance and elegant, with just the right amount of tannins. 

Best hits:

• Grilled Steak
• Spicy marinated Ribs
 • Red & Green Peppers

 

Silice, Cahors

100% Malbec
 Silice by Château les Croisille : this light and joyful wine is brimming with mouth-watering acidity. Fruity and textures in mouth, it’s the most elegant Malbec for summer we know!

Best hits:

• Grilled Chicken
• Smoked Trout
 • Marinated Eggplant, Zucchini and Tomatoes

Summer is coming and you’re thinking about coconuts, cicadas, cocktails and sand beaches… how relaxing. But we all know summer doesn’t come for free in Japan, do we not?

Yes, I’m talking about the infamous Tsuyu, or Japanese monsoon, that will plague us all until next August. I mean, unless your dream is to live in an open-world sauna for 60 days straight of course.

But if you are like us, fear not as you’ve come to the right place. Here we’ll try to give you tips to survive to apocalypse in the form of a beautiful 2-bt wine set. You know the drill 😉

This time we will focus on Cabernet Franc, a quite famous grape that, if well prepared, can freshen up both body and soul in wonderful ways. That’s the power of Cabernet Franc…


◆ KEZAKO, Domaine Sebastian David

First part of the survival kit: getting introduced to Sébastien David craft.

Just knowing this guy exists will give you wings (what?). Sébastien is a talented winemaker always looking for new and modern ways to work the sole and only grape varietal of his estate: the Cabernet Franc, you guessed it.

From egg-shaped concrete tanks to decades-old barrels and, I kid you not, terracotta amphoras on conveyor belts, Sébastien pushes way beyond what would be expected from a Loire-Valley estate.

Second part of the survival kit: KEZAKO.
Literally meaning “What the hell?” in French slang, KEZAKO is a fascinating wine aged in egg-shaped concrete tanks for half a year. This helps extracting both Cabernet Franc fruitiness and freshness while also making the wine breathe a lot more than in other type of tanks. This, combined with the fact it’s a non-filtered and sulphite free wine, makes it for a light, slightly fizzy and very refreshing red perfectly suited for cloudy or rainy days. If you don’t know what to eat, we highly recommend Japanese udon with ponzu sauce, for its affinity with KEZAKO aromatic profile especially, or tomato-based cuisine and saline cheese like Burrata.


◆ JEAN, Domaine Millaire

Third part of the survival kit: JEAN
Named after the winemaker himself (…hon hon hon) JEAN is a very unique wine. So unique that, after the first sip, I couldn’t take my eyes off it for a moment, like touched by grace.

But Simon, how is this even possible?

Well, JEAN is a sparkling rosé from Bordeaux, which already is a rare feat, and produced exactly like a Champagne on top of that. The notable exception being that it is made of Cabernet Franc instead of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. This clever twist gives JEAN a clean and sharp profile in-mouth, with small but crisp bubbles, and notes of pepper and fresh capsicum. Capsicum, or bell-pepper if you prefer. And yes, you heard right, I'm saying it tastes like the little green stuff on meat skewers at BBQs. 

But trust me, not only does it taste good by itself, it also pairs well with many types of food. We recommend trying it with grilled meat, salad, deep-fried tempura, yakitori chicken, vegemite (just kidding, put the spoon down mate) or seafood, especially octopus marinated in lemon.

Until the real summer starts, take care of yourself and enjoy your Cabernet Franc! 😉

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Natural Wine
¥10,500

Hello wine lovers !

It’s time we talk about Natural Wines, what they stand for and what you should expect from them.

First of all, note that there is no clear definition of what a natural wine is. Don’t look for a green mark on the back of the bottles or a logo because there is none… for the moment 😉

But how come everybody talks about it if it doesn’t exist you ask?
Let’s try to find the answer together!

According to winemaker Sébastien David, who founded the Union for the Defense of Natural Wines, which we recommend, natural wines must be:
• certified organic,
• made only from grapes,
• and contain less than 30mg of Sulfites per liter.

FYI, sulfites act both as a stabilizer and a preservative, ensuring that the wine you drink tastes roughly the same as it did when it went into the bottle. Natural winemakers either use no added sulfites or use it in small quantities, while conventional winemakers may use 10 times as much (!).

And that’s where is becomes very interesting. Contrary to popular belief, low Sulfites levels doesn’t equal to good Natural Wines, even if the grapes are organic. The rules are only here to preserve a certain ecologic standard within a highly standardized and chemicalized industry, nothing more.

So, to drink good wine, you must find a talented winemaker. One that can create beautiful gems without a single misstep and who doesn’t use tricks of any sort. The ‘art of wine’ under these strict rules is incredibly difficult, and many are those who have failed. And believe me (or not, it’s up to you 😋) when the wine tastes like socks, it’s a clear sign that its delicate microbiome has become unbalanced.

But enough talking, you’re here for the ride, aren’t you?
In this wine set, you will discover two very different natural wines. One explores new ways to create and enjoy wine; the other remains elegant and classy, loyal to a more traditional approach to winemaking, with a technician twist to it.

COËF
Domaine Sébastien David, Loire Valley
No added sulfites.

100% Cabernet Franc, aged in a terracotta amphora rolling on a conveyor belt for a year. No jokes.
Unfiltered, unfined wine. Here the acetic is rather high which provides beautiful pairing opportunities with Japanese food. It’s also a beautiful tasting experience as the deeper you go, the stronger the wine gets. At first very light and fruity, then powerful and rich. The more you drink the more texture you get on the palate and the more the wine opens too. A must try and the boss favorite!

LES CLIMATS
Domaine des Poncétys, Bourgundy
Under 30mg of Sulfites.

100% Chardonnay from the Saint Véran AOC, aged in barrel for 18 months. Made by students from a public wine school (still no jokes) that fosters a unique kind of yeast allowing slow fermentations. We are talking 9-month fermentations which in turn brings a richness and a texture to the wine that we’ve never seen before. Please try 😊

Sparkles-up your life with some bubbles! 

Summer is just around the corner! With it comes the joy of rebirth, nature blooming, and celebrating the cycle of life with both family and friends. All these moments are good excuses to share a glass of bubbly (or two!) and for that very reason, we got you covered with a carefully picked selection of organic and biodynamic nectars.

A word about Domaine Jean Michel, Champagne
The Michel family develops vintaged champagne entirely produced with grapes from its own vineyard in the same house and underground calcareous galleries since 1847. Each stage of the wine growing process is controlled very closely: in the cellar, each grape varietal is vinified separately in oak barrels which brings a subtle richness to the final blend while also retaining each variety's style and uniqueness. When the wines are ready, they will age on lath for a minimum period of 36 months where in the old vault, a place where they will develop a host of perfumes and bouquets, signature of Champagne Jean Michel.

Line-up

◆ CEP
Without any added sugar in its "liqueur d'expédition", CEP is Champagne in its purest form : crisp and subtle with a great drinkability.

◆ Petite Mulotte
This confidential cuvée is partially vinified and aged in oak, a challenge taken by owner Olivier Michel to renew his art. La Petite Mulotte is one of my favorite wine from the estate : a must try experience !
