50% Sauvignon Blanc / 50% Chardonnay
"Few things are more exhilarating than learning a new tongue.
Ditching New York for Paris after college, I sidestepped the recession in favor of quirky side jobs, romantic wandering, and a lot of time just trying to figure myself out. This wine is inspired by those moments, and to drinking humble French wines, exchanging wobbly kisses, and speaking even wobblier French.
Moreover, 'French Lessons' looks to capture the feeling of those first times: tasting Laurent Saillard's 'Lucky You' in Brooklyn, seeing 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly' alone at the Angelika, and watching Michel Gondry's music videos in high school. Every rushed kiss before darting off to catch the last metro, each post-midnight bike ride, all the poems read at the Monday open mic in Belleville, the many nervous crushes, and that one time skinny-dipping in Canal Saint-Martin - all part of my French Lessons."
