Les Œillets – Jean-Yves Péron

Les Œillets – Jean-Yves Péron

This lovely wine was quickly consumed by three of us at Septime La Cave in Paris.  The color is a beautiful, rich, somewhat hazy, orange. It is 100% Jacquere and has 9.5% alcohol. On the nose is a nuttiness and dried fruit aromas.

The palate is delicious, a real treat, it puts a smile on your face. A pleasant roundness on the tongue and a bit metallic, more dried fruit and some oxidativeness. There is a refreshing acidity and brightness which makes one reach for another sip. This wine is nicely balanced and has a good length.

If you know someone who doesn’t like orange wine, offer them a glass of this. If they still don’t like orange wine don’t offer them anymore, finish it yourself!

Andrew Krell is the epicurean youthful elder on our team. Not only does he know pretty much everyone related to natural wine in Paris (places included), but he often drinks wines we never heard of in downtown N.Y.C. where he resides. Music is wine, wine is music and it influences how he experiences what he drinks: based on emotions, taste, guitar riffs and melodies. We love him for that and for many other things too ;)
