Sadie's Bio

Buyer for Portugal, Loire, Beaujolais, California: Whites & Merlot, Israel, Sake, and Dessert Wines.

Sadie has liked wine as far back as she can remember, but it was spending a few summers in France as a kid that she grew accustomed to wine as an essential part of the table. When Sadie delved into this idea as a young adult, she found it embodied in principles of Slow Food. She's passionate about art and the culinary arts, and especially wine — for its infinite styles, experiential aspects, entertainment, sense of unity, and continuity of tradition.

Sadie holds a certificate from the Sommelier Society of America and continues to educate herself amongst the very knowledgeable staff at 67, as well as through individual study and visiting vineyards throughout the world.

Served slightly chilled, this light and rustic red is perfect with casual, late summer meals.

Maupertuis Neyrou 2012

 



The Story
Why I Bought This Food Pairing
Jean Maupertuis was always a wine lover, but it wasn’t until 1992 that he left his career in IT to pursue viticulture and oenology full time. Embracing the movement of Natural Wine, he has ties with Marcel Lapierre (in Morgon) and follows the ethos of the “Gang of Four” in Beaujolais. Maupertuis’s style is to highlight the flavors of the grape and terroir, which he achieves by farming without the use of chemical fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides. The fruit is hand harvested, fermentation occurs with wild yeasts, the wine is unfiltered and has no added sulfur. The whole process is unhurried—Maupertuis likes to take his time.

Neyrou goes against the grain of many other wines from the Auvergne, a French region that mainly produces simple, cooperative-made wines. This light Pinot Noir tastes of wild berries and black pepper. With 12.5 percent alcohol, it is a red best served chilled—a category that keeps coming up this uncharacteristically cool August. Even the color, an autumnal burgundy, hints at late summer.


Neyrou is a casual wine that is perfect with the rustic cuisine of the Auvergne, like pork sausage with green (Puy) lentils, or the region’s famous blue cheese, Bleu d’Auvergne. But it also goes with more eclectic fare—I recently enjoyed it with a dinner of clams in tomato sauce and tamales.

I first tasted the Nossa Branco in Portugal at the home of Filipa and her husband, William Wouters. He prepared a casual dinner of vegetable salads that we all shared, and the wine was extraordinarily fresh and delicious, just like the meal. It’s an  more
