French organic wine tasting フランス産オーガニックワイン試飲会


To welcome you back from holidays, aux nuages is presenting a flight of organic wines from southern France, including several new arrivals in the Japanese market. We will pour rich and elegant organic red wines from Domaine Singla in the Roussillon region of southern France near the border with Spain. They will be offered alongside an eclectic selection of organic and natural wines from Famille Fabre in Corbieres. Both of these houses are very old (Singla dating to 1760 and Fabre to 1605), but have adopted a very modern profile in their winemaking, embracing organic and biodynamic viticulture. The French organic selections are principally full bodied red wines, and are ideal for the winter season. They will be accompanied by a selection of fresh and clean tasting white and sparkling wines from northern Portugal. We finish up the event with Domaine Singla's aged vin doux naturel (VDN), a lightly fortified wine that will impress you with its balance and delicacy. We have brought in a stellar selection of these 'Rivesaltes Ambré' wines, including some very old vintages that are available upon request. We are quite pleased to introduce these VDN wines to the Japan market - a real treat that can last forever. You can expect to try 12-14 wines at this event, principally French organic selections, with Portuguese wines playing a supporting role. The roster will represent a balance between sparkling, white, red, and fortified styles. Subject to availability, the wines will be available for purchase on the spot, or can be shipped anywhere in Japan. Please note that this event is limited to 15 participants. Signup is now open, wine list will be available shortly.

Wine List The two Rivesaltes Ambré vins doux naturels at the end are a particular treat. Lightly fortified, they show a great balance between sweetness and acidity, with great complexity. The 1980 Vintage Rivesaltes Ambré provides an opportunity to taste such a wine at the age of nearly 40 years.
