Rand's's Bio

 

Buyer of: German Wine, Alsace, Australia, Bordeaux, South-West France, Jura

Rand has had a passion for wine since he was but a tyke growing up in Austria. At the tender age of five, he would stealthily make his way around the table after dinner parties, as the adults were saying their good-byes in the hallway, and drain the last drops from each glass. Even then he could not imagine anything more alluring than the heady aroma of those last resiny droplets of Zweigelt or the honeysuckle-scented dregs of Riesling shimmering at the bottom of crystal goblets.

Later in life, Rand became fascinated with the process that transforms the humble grape into the magical elixir Hemingway called “one of the most civilized things in the world” and began to read everything he could get his hands on about viticulture and wine making. Inevitably, his studies led him to explore the world’s many wine regions, grape varieties, and wine styles, and to share his fascination with others as a freelance wine educator and adviser in Utah.

 

In 2012, after 20 years in the credit industry, Rand’s passion for all things wine took a radical turn. He decided to move to New York to pursue his wine education more seriously and to begin a full-time career in wine. Rand now gets to share his love of Riesling and the many other wonderful Teutonic whites and reds at 67 Wine as buyer for German wines. He is always excited to turn our customers on to something new, fun, and delicious in the fascinating world of wine.

Rand's Wine Selection - Cazottes Champetre 2014


The Story

Distillerie Cazottes, run by husband and wife team Laurent and Marina Cazottes, is well known for its wonderful true to nature fruit brandies, aperitifs and liqueurs. The grapes, pears, and plums for these fragrant, expressive specialties are biodynamically farmed in the Tarn region in Southwest France, and no artificial aromatics or other additives are used in their production. The Cazottes also use their biodynamically grown grapes to make delightful red and white wines like the Champetre Blanc. This wine is made from the Mauzac grape which is better known for the light sparkling Blanquett de Limoux. Here however, it makes a thoroughly enjoyable and versatile still white, perfect for easy late summer and early fall drinking.

Tasting Note

Chapetre offers up gentle, delicious aromas of orchard pear, under-ripe mango, and whispers of lemon zest and tree nuts. The palate is simultaneously round and delicate with bright fruit, crisp acidity and a long roasted hazelnut and almond finish.

Food Pairing

The wine's aromas of orchard fruit and nuts, along with cleansing crispness, make this a great pairing with fresh cheeses. I have enjoyed this immensely with crostini topped with warm goat cheese, a drizzle of olive oil, and freshly cracked black pepper.
