les airs

les airs, a Rhone wine made by Estezargues, a Southern Rhone Cooperative. They make wine naturally. no SO2. See this if you wanna know the detail. the taste was nice. very juicy. sweet, smell like fig and some berries. and smell little something herb. it's not so thick as the color. I like this wine.
Tonight dinner was pasta with gorgonzola sauce by the way...

Hello hikalu!
Thank you for the beautiful reports.
I love the reds from Les Vignerons d'Estézargues. Would you have retail coordinates for them in Japan?

Hi Félicien Breton!
Thank you for the comment. You love their wines? yeah, So do I! I only know les airs though, I wanna try the others.

You asked about the wine retail coordinator in Japan, but I don't know. and I confess that I don't know what kinda job the retail coordinator is.. not the wine importer? Might be, My favorite wine shop owner would know a coordinator. Sorry, Exactly I didn't catch what You wanted to ask me for..
At least, I know the Estézargues's wine are imported by Nomura Unison co, the wine sale department. they treat some natural wines, mainly France.

Actually you answered my question. The importer is Unison and the retail is provided by Nomura, a chain of department stores I understand. Please correct if I am wrong.
I was asking because I wanted to update my page of French wines available in Japan. You can click to it in the name of this comment.
Thank you for your help.
Cheers,
Félicien

Hi Félicien!
The company name is "Nomura Unison". You are right, the retail is provided by this company. I'm glad that I could help you.
You listed Racines too. I know of this company. Those companies are for the wine shops, not for consumers.

I meant those companies only handle wholesale goods. They sell the wines to retail like restaurant, liquor stores and wine shops.
By the way, One of my favorite wine shop is a neighborhood shop named Shinkawa. Very small wine shop and I love. Here is the online shop. He treats the wines of Nomura Unison and Racines. There are less wines on the online shop, but There are more in the real shop.
