Please join us on Tuesday as we welcome our good friend Alice Feiring to Chambers Street. Alice will bring copies of her new book "Natural Wine for the People" which will be available to purchase, and we'll taste a few of her favorite natural wines from Christian Ducroux, Sybil Baldassarre, Milan Nestarec and Bruno Schueller!

Graine Sauvage (Sybil Baldasarre) 2017 Vin de France Vermentino

This is an extraordinary Vermentino, from old vines on high altitude schiste soils in Faugères, from organic farming and made with zero added sulfur by the enthusiastic and talented Sybil Baldassarre. The 2017 vintage began well with grapes in perfect condition, but then drought set in, lowering yields and forcing an early harvest. The resulting wine is quite full and rich but retaining good acidity, with elegant aromas of thyme and garrique with white fruits. The palate is clean, very mineral and saline with apricot, white fruit and almond flavors, well balanced and very long. The wine is a great achievement of good farming and talented winemaking, a white from the south of great elegance and complexity that will shine at the table. Like all of the Graine Sauvage wines, it is highly recommended.  David Lillie

Graine Sauvage (Sybil Baldasarre) 2015 Faugères Rocalhas

Sybil Baldassarre's first vintage of Faugères Blanc "Rocalhas" is 60% Grenache Blanc, 30% Roussanne and 10% Marsanne. Just arrived in the US for the first time, this unique natural wine shows aromas of lemon oil, almond, lime flower and wet stone. The palate is dense and full wtih flavors of ripe pear and apple, candied citrus, almond, stone and caramel, with a long sappy finish of ripe citrus, anise, pear and saline minerals.  Serve with bouillabaisse, grilled shrimp or lobster, grilled vegetables, full flavored cheeses.  Congratulations to Sybil on this delicious natural wine - organic farming, mininal SO2. (And we enjoy the love-making ladybugs on the label)  David Lillie

Graine Sauvage (Sybil Baldasarre) 2016 Faugères Rocalhas

The 2016 Faugères Blanc "Rocalhas" from La Graine Sauvage was made from 70% Grenache Blanc with equal parts Roussanne and Marsanne. The vintage 2016 gave a brighter wine with a bit more acidity and less concentration than the 2015. The aromas are bright and pretty with ripe pear, apricot, lemon confit, fines herbes and wet stone. The palate is dense, supple and mineral but with bright acidity with flavors of dried pear, garrigue, lemon and saline minerals. Nice length of earth and citrus flavors lingers on the palate. Lovely wine and a great food pairing for any complex fish preparation, chicken in sauce, sushi....

Milan Nestarec 2017 Moravia Danger 380 Volts

A fun and fresh Pet-Nat from Milan Nestarec, this is a blend of Müller Thurgau, Neuburger, and Muscat. Frothy, and totally dry, with a lovely and fascinating (but not overwhelming) floral nose, from the aromatic Müller and Muscat grapes.

Schueller, Bruno 2017 Alsace Pinot Gris

This is a fascinating, dry Pinot Gris, from sandstone soils. Crunchy and lively, this is drinking very nicely at the moment, especially after 15-30 minutes of decanting.  EL
