Chateau de Lavernette Beaujolais Blanc 2015
The hand picked grapes were whole-cluster pressed in a gentle pneumatic press and gravity fed to the tank to be cold settled. Separated from the heavy lees by racking, the must ferments at a low temperature in tank to preserve the fruity aromas. The wine remained on its fine lees, finished malo-lactic conversion and has been aged for 5 months before it was estate bottled.
This Beaujolais Blanc is a wine for those in search of immediate pleasure. Fragrant white flowers, full of juicy white fruits, laced with a mineral edge, and balanced by a gossamer acid finish that bewitches and beguiles one’s reason. An untamed dance of seven veils whirls across the palate revealingly and ends with slaked desire.
Salmon, risotto, lobster, Roquefort, soft mild cheese, Caesar salad, Caribbean cuisine, chicken or pork in cream sauce, stuffed clams, oysters.
Bremer's March 2018 Staff Pick | Chosen by Eric, fourth generation co-owner of Bremer's
While the weather might not seem like it, spring is on its way and this month, Eric decided to pick a wine that is perfect for the transition into (somewhat) warmer weather. Made with 100% Chardonnay grapes, this white is refreshing, but will still stand up to the comfort food all this snow and chilly weather has you craving.

Wine EnthusiastBeaujolais Blanc is effectively Burgundy-type Chardonnay but from the southern neighbor Beaujolais region. This wine, with its ripe and creamy texture, has the same rich character as a Mâcon wine. It is smooth and soft from a warm vintage for white wines. Drink this wine now.
