Staff Picks–Gorrondona Tinto Txakolina 2010

Staff Pick from Brian, our Domestic Portfolio Manager:

For me, it’s the 2010 vintage of Gorrondona Tinto Txakolina. 100% Hondarribi Beltza.

Much deeper dark fruit than the 2009.  Reminded me of some of my favorite Cab Francs from the Loire (La Croix Boissie from Baudry and Pierre and Catherine Breton’s Bourgueil Clos Sénéchal).

Those two wines specifically are from distinct clay soil vineyards in Saumur-Champigny and Bourgueil.  The Gorrondona had a very similiar minerality as those wines and great salinity from the Atlantic.

Perfect for this time of year, with root vegetables from the farmer’s market.
