September selections:

 

G. Hoppenot Morgon “Corcelette” 2020 

When our importer friends at Transparent Wine Co. first brought Grégoire Hoppenot’s wines into the US, we went big: our small restaurant bought a pallet of the producer’s charming, delicious, naturally made Fleurie to pour by the glass. You can imagine our excitement when Hoppenot joined an elite tier in Beaujolais and gained access to Gamay vines in Corcelette, one of Morgon’s top vineyard sites, made famous by Jean Foillard. This old-vine, gossamer juice is a wellspring of eternal energy. It’s life-affirming. It’s fundamentally about enjoyment. Pop immediately. Give zero f***ks. 

Meyer-Näkel Blanc de Noir “Illusion” 2021 

In the summer of 2021, there was calamity in Germany’s Ahr Valley: massive floods poured into the narrow valley, destroying all of the Ahr’s centuries-old stone bridges, submerging whole villages, and wrecking the vintage in a remote region dependent on wine. 185 people died in Germany during the floods of July 2021; the majority lived in the Ahr Valley.  

Meyer-Näkel, the famed Ahr producer who put Geman Pinot Noir on the map in the 1980s, lost everything: the winery, equipment, barrels, and bottled wines. Sisters Dörte and Meike Näkel, who manage the estate, almost lost their lives. They were trapped in the winery when the floods struck, and they escaped the rising waters by breaking a window—underwater—swimming out into the torrent, and clinging to a tree for safety for hours before rescue arrived.  

Miraculously, they managed a tiny vintage. This still wine is an “illusion” of Pinot Noir—Pinot grapes pressed immediately to yield a white wine. Wine is a resilient thing. People, too. Pop this one now, for good fortune.
