Sample wines with wine specialist Nicolas Soufflet
Nicolas was born in Paris, France. He began working in the wine industry with the main French retail store chain called NICOLAS (no joke), which has over 300 stores in France, while also pursuing business studies in the Loire Valley. After graduating in 2004, Nicolas chose to combine his wine knowledge and international business skills by coming to the US to work in European wine import and distribution on the West Coast. Today, he represents two companies’ interests and portfolio in Southern California and Nevada.
Château Pipeau 2001
St Emilion Grand Cru
80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
Medium-bodied Bordeaux, quite floral on the nose. It has a good balance of concentrated fruit and ripe tannins.
H&B Faugères 2003
Syrah & Mourvedre
Languedoc Roussillion, France
Firm, dry nose. Ripe, spicy fruit palate with a hint of oak. Round. Its fruit-forwardness makes it very appealing to Californian palate, along with maintaining a traditional wine making technique.
La Marcellina Vigna d’Oro 2004
50% Cabernet, 50% Sangiovese
Nose rich with purple and blue fruit notes with plenty of cassis and a mid-palate horsepower. Fruity and tannic. A delicious synthesis of a traditional mindset and modern wine making.
Le Grand Cros Esprit de Provence 2005
Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault
The salmon color and violet reflection are made from the Grenache – Cinsault – Syrah combination, opening on a nose rich with strawberries and apricots. Fresh buttery mouth, clean and elegant finish.
Andre Lorentz Riesling 2003
Floral, citrus and clove aromas, hints of powdered stone. Crisp and clean, refreshing acidity on the finish, slightly drier than one usually finds in Riesling
Lupe Cholet Macon-Villages 2005
It is pale, yellow in color, with hints of green. Its fruit is tasty and highly typical: wild peach and spring flowers. It is fleshy and pleasantly lively, with a well-balanced medium body.
