Julien Braud VdF Blanc 'Forty Ounce' 2017
40 ounce… wine? You bet. Gone are the days where forty ounce bottles were designated solely for cheap beer and malt liquor. Forty Ounce wines are produced with sustainably farmed grapes and without the use of pesticides. Fruit for the Forty Ounce Blanc comes from Gaillac in SW France, comprised of Muscadelle, Loin de l’Oeil, and Muscat. Exotic, aromatic, and thirst-quenching; perfect with spicy food or sushi night.
The reference point for greatness; the fount of most wine-specific vocabulary; and the nation most identified with viticulture and winemaking expertise. As awesome as Italy but a little snootier.
