Join us today to taste these wines and one whisky...
Bastille 1789 French Whisky
Bargemone Rose Coteaux d'Aix en Provence....$16.99
"Tasting Notes: Offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate. Serve With: A rosé of reference, to be enjoyed year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine." -- Dan Kravitz, importer
2009 Domaine Aimé Minervois...$14.99
Tasting Notes: This is a very rich and silky Minervois. The nose is full of briar fruit and spice, with hints of sandalwood and white pepper. In the mouth the wine is lush with black raspberry, cherry, and garrigue notes. In contrast to the rich flavors in the wine, the finish is soft and silky, with extremely ripe tannins. This is a very versatile wine that would be a perfect compliment to most grilled meats, and barbeque dishes. 70% Carignan, and 30% Syrah
2010 Terres Falmet Cinsault...$12.99
Tasting Notes: It is rare to find a red wine made entirely from Cinsault, and rarer yet to find one with this much concentration and character. Since this wine is made exclusively from older vines grown on hillsides, the wine is unusually concentrated for Cinsault. However, thanks to the nature of Cinsault, the wine is round with incredibly soft tannins. We equate the weight of the wine to a well made Pinot Noir. However, the flavors are quite different. The wine is full of black fruit, with hints of blueberry, and white pepper. This is a versatile wine that can be served with everything from red meat, to poultry, tuna, and pizza.
Jean Louis Denois Brut Chardonnay...$19.99
"Denois’s non-vintage Chardonnay Brut Blanc de Blancs. Legally, this “traditional method” wine is merely a vin mousseux, yet it is in fact a tribute to the terroir of Limoux (whose sparkling wine appellation must be based on the local Blanquette de Limoux a.k.a. Mauzac grape, for which Denois evidently has little respect). It will be hard to find a more delicious and interesting sparkling wine for the price. Ripe apricot, grapefruit, blueberries, and lily in the nose lead to an intensely pit-fruited palate that – despite a mere five grams of residual sugar – suggests a hint of sweetness on account of its sheer ripeness. Yet, there are suggestions of saline, chalky minerality here as well, a fine mousse, and a refined finish. This will be easy to guzzle but not to forget. Bravo Denois!" -- The Wine Advocate
