“Graine de Moutarde” welcomes everyone to taste young italian wine of 2013 vintage.
Historically, 11th of November is celebrated as St. Martin’s day in Italy. Usually this period is rather warm and it is regarded as the last days of “indian summer” before it gets cold. This date overlaps with the time when the new wine Bardolino Novello goes out to the shops, and italians say that “on St. Martin’s day even juice becomes wine” – “A San Martino ogni mosto diventa vino”.
The wine is produced near the lake Garda, on its western band, not far from Verona. Light red wine, rather not strong, with a beautiful color of pomegranate, it’s fruity in taste and offers a good acidity and silky tannins. It would be perfect for aperitif and will also be a good match with light salads, poultry and unseasoned cheese.

Pouilly-Fuissé – appellation for the finest white wines of the region Mâconnais in Southern Burgundy, founded in 1936. Pouilly-Fuissé wines are made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. They are well maintained and can be stored up to 20 years or more, getting even more elegant body and flavours.
Pouilly-Fuissé from Domaine Merlin has a beautiful yellow-greenish hue, combined with a rich aroma, opens with notes of white peaches and pears. The wine is round, oily, smooth, mineral in taste and very fresh. Has a long persistent aftertaste.
Appellation Pouilly-Fuissé divides appellation Saint-Véran into two parts, and in its northern part wines by the both names can be produced.
Historically, this appellation was Saint-Vérand, but the last letter was “lost” due to an error in administrative records over 30 years ago. As the southernmost appellation of Burgundy, it is adjacent to the northern part of Beaujolais, and most of the crop previously would fall rather under the title of Beaujolais Blanc and the rest of it in terms of quality and characteristics of the wine falls between Pouilly-Fuissé and appellations of the village Mâcon. All the wines in Saint-Véran are made exclusively from Chardonnay, traditionally dry, but more full-bodied, which distinguishes them from other white Burgundy wines. At a young age, these wines have a floral fragrance with notes of stone fruit, but with as they maturity they develop honey and nut tones.
Saint-Véran from Domaine Merlin – is a wine with golden-greenish hue and a scent of white flowers. An elegant wine with a pleasant elasticity, combined with an attractive fragrant freshness. Best flavors reveal at the age of 2-3 years.
