Clément 클레멍  French Sommelier 소믈리에🍷 Zero Complex - Seoul With a lovely Korean wife @iam_lena Vins vivants #내추럴와인

Most anticipated release in Korea (at least for me !) : Jura wines from l'Octavin are finally here, after months of wait ! But as you may expect, in very small quantities... Take what you can ! "Brutal" and "Pamina" are some serious bomb, showing really great now ! Will try "Dora Bella" and "Elle aime" very soon. More details to come !
-
One more cult natural winery available in Korea, seems like we are going in the right direction ✌🍷

New Spanish crush ! I guess, as I only drank this one, but we loved it very much ! Oriol Artigas "La Rumbera" 2016, from Catalunya, blend of Pansa Blanca and Granatxa Blanca. Just great for a night picnic at the Han River !
-
I think this is the kind of white wine that I tend to love more and more, especially when I need some easy-going and fresh wine : just a slight reduction that leads the flavors to citrus/yuzu zest with a smoky touch and some fresh pear as it opens, a cray-like, gently rough texture, a superb saline acidity, almost electric, behind a ripe and fleshy fruit. No heaviness, ultra digest, even coming from Spain (I feel that I have misconception of Spanish wines but I'm working on it !)

Good time yesterday at @raffine_restaurant around a nice (and hype) selection of wine including bottles by La Grapperie, Daniel Sage, Strohmeier and Christian Tschida, all imported by VinBro @mingleseoul + good charcuteries and cheese ! Thank you @erikabounce for hosting another great tasting 👍🍷🍃

(La Luna by Bruno Duchêne was brought from France)

제로컴플렉스 내추럴 와인 페어링 dinner wine-pairing at @zerocomplex_seoul It was a bit tricky to settle the pairing with our current no-meat menu but I think I did it right ! Almost a full-whites pairing : five whites with high personality and very different expressions, and one red (with no less style)
-
VN 2016, Partida Creus : citrusy, light and acidulous / mullet ceviche, shallots, coriander
-
Crémant d'Alsace 2014, Jean-Pierre Rietsch : generous, deep and mature sparkling / scallops, walnut, pear
-
Or'Norm 2014, Les Cailloux du Paradis : roots-like, herbal and bitter Sauvignon Blanc / asparagus, burrata, trout roe
-
Syrah 2016, Hervé Souhaut : light, smoky and inky red / cuttlefish, squid ink, fennel
-
Alsace Grand Cru Wiebelsberg Riesling 2013, Kreydenweiss : stony, elegant and intense dry Riesling / cod, beurre blanc, tons of veggies and green
-
Vol à Voile 2013, Dominique Derain : Vin Jaune-like, nutty, saline and powerful Chardonnay / lobster, bisque, pil pil sauce
-
Always amazed to be able to offer such a selection in Korea, thanks to importers who never cease to bring great wines ! 6 glasses (6 x 70ml) / 90,000₩

🔝once again we've been royally treated by the great @djyoungkim who brought and share with us this stunning bottle of Serragghia "Riserva Agung" 2014 by @gabrio_bini ! Pure Nerello Mascalese, 300 bottles produced.. and damn it was good !
-
Ultra aromatic, explosive perfumes of rose, blood orange, cranberry juice, musk... living and fascinating ! I'm always amazed by Serragghia wines aromas, definitely unique ! Very high and inspectés acidity (for a Mediterranean wine), hyper-fresh feeling, bright fruit, slightly tannic texture, but an intense kick on finale that reminds you that you are a little bit more south than Burgundy !
-
Fantastic experience, feels like I love Serragghia reds as much as the whites. Merci Monsieur !
-
Also Serragghia produces 4 different "Riserva" wines, one for each Bini family member : Gabrio (Pinot Noir), Genevieve (ungrafted Zibbibo), Giotto (Carinano), and.. Agung, their little Jack Russel dog !

Zellberg - L'Hermitage 2016, Sylvaner & Riesling version, by Patrick Meyer. New importation from the iconic Alsacian winemaker available in Korea !
-
And as often with Patrick this is a wine that goes way beyond the usual varietal expression of those popular Alsace grapes : orange skin, ginger, honey, baked apple, chestnut.. flirting with oxidation, high maturity, ripe and generous texture, but great acidity and huge mineral salinity. Radical but quickly addictive !

Summer is coming. First picnic of the season on the Han River banks ! Starting with a bottle of "Cab'baret" 2014 by François Saint-Lô, a pure Cabernet Franc from Loire on its juiciest side, ripe green paprika, sweet red berries plus a kind of iodine and rustic feeling. Perfect for the moment !
-
Living in a huge city can be tough and oppressing but city lights sight at night are priceless.

First drop. "Primus Gutta" is a collaborative wine, at the vineyard and in the cellar, between Thierry Diaz and José Carvalho @ze_tafe (La Cave des Nomades), two talented natural wine makers from Banyuls (Roussillon). Great idea, cool label and delightful wine !
-
Not sure if it's a field-blend but a lot of different grapes are involveded, whites as red : Grenache Noir, Gris, Blanc, Carignan, Mourvedre, Syrah, Merlot, even Macabeu and Muscat Petit Grains..! Up to 15 days maceration for the reds but direct pressing for the whites, so the overall feeling is one of a South France red wine but a bit tempered and refreshed by the white juice !
-
MMXVII means it's 2017 (the first for me) so it's still a bit on the reduction side at opening but give it a bit of oxygen and it already shines : raspberry and red plum, lot of crushed black pepper, dried herbs, almond paste.. on the palate it achieves to be powerful and spicy, with a sunny character, and digest and tense at the same time with a nice acidity ! In aimé ways reminds me of the "little" Grenache from Gramenon/Laurent (Poignée de Raisins, Il Fait Soif...) : bright, expressive, peppery and juicy, love it ! @mywineskorea

Great news for Loire lovers : wines from the iconic Domaine Pithon-Paillé are available for the first time in Korea since one month ! The domaine was created by the legendary Jo Pithon and his family in 2008, but unfortunately Jo and Isabelle are retiring this year and the winery will be sold.. So jump on the occasion as the wines will be rarities soon ! Three cuvées were imported, including "Coteaux des Treilles" :
-
Anjou blanc "Bonnes Blanches" 2015 : a delightful Chenin Blanc with an easy character, on pear, yellow plum and fresh herbs with a touch of honey and just enough acidity. Highly drinkable !
-
Anjou blanc "Coteaux des Treilles" 2012 : their most impressive wine from their most beautiful terroir, the achievement of a winemaking life, deep and generous, mature and ripe, powerful (14%) but extremely digest, beeswax, brioche, quince, smoke and wet stone... fascinating. To me one of the best Chenin Blanc you can get in Korea along the ones from Domaine de Bellivière and La Ferme de la Sansonnière !
-
Anjou rouge "Mozaïk" 2015 : everything I like from a good and simple Cabernet Franc from Loire, lot of fruit, raspberry and blackcurrant, green paprika and cut grass, low alcohol and juicy feeling, no tannins, good acidity, a bit rustic with a fresh herbal sensation and very easy-going !
-
Not to mention that prices in Korea for "Bonnes Blanches" and especially "Mozaïk" are very good ("Coteaux des Treilles" is not cheap but it deserves it), as usual with Handok Wines @adonis815

SATURNE will be in Seoul for a special dinner at and with ZERO COMPLEX ! Exciting ! @saturneparis @zerocomplex_seoul

La Goutte de Dieu 신의 물방울. "Or' Norm" 2014 by Etienne Courtois, Les Cailloux du Paradis (Sologne, Loire Valley) and "hors-norme" (out of the norm) it is ! A crazy and spectacular Sauvignon Blanc with an expression I never had before !
-
Intense nose with a very unique and strong bitter/medicinale herbs nose (like gentian) that really smells like "Suze", bitter orange skin and a touch of passion fruit. The palate also shows a bitter herbs side along a generous flesh, some salinity and a good acidity. Surprising but quickly addictive !
-
As often with Courtois family's wines it may be a bit challenging at first but it's a great companion for the spring herbs and veggies that flourish on our dishes right now (currently serving it at Zero Complex with a green asparagus, apple, burrata and trout eggs dish) ! @adonis815
