Staff Pick Notes

St. Foy is in the eastern portion of Bordeaux actually very close to Bergerac. The Comme family came to this area from Italy over a century ago. The current vignorons Corinne and Jean-Michel Comme converted the 3.2 hectare white grape vineyard to organic then biodyamic farming practice and the results speak for themselves. Its rare to find a wood aged white that I actually like apart from very expensive white Burgundy. Here the combination of large old wooden barrels and extended lees ageing gives this wine a wonderful texture without losing acidity or slipping into being oaky. Citrus fruit and white flowers meld for a classic white bordeaux that I would definitely recommend.
