Good Evening,
It’s a nice start to the week to find these wines to add to our portfolio. They will be available to purchase in-store at the end of the week. However, you can own a six pack of each at a 10% discount by purchasing before they arrive. We’ve also added three new events to our calendar for November. I’ve enclosed links to each event below. Please join us!
In good taste,
Peter

2010 Jean Max Roger Sancerre Rouge
Grade: A
If I hadn’t known what it was I would have guessed Gevrey Chambertin. Alas, this 100% pinot noir was stunning. The wine showcases a ruby/crimson color that is crystal clear and translucent. Aromas of cherry candy, earth, smoke, wood, mushroom and dried flowers all emanate from the glass. The palate is elegant and soft with bright fruit, a touch of wood and a long silky finish.
$156.60 the six pack

2012 Domaine Gilles Flacher Saint Joseph “Les Reines”
Grade: B+
For some time I’ve been looking for a replacement for the Yves Cuilleron Saint Joseph that I loved so much. The Domaine Gilles Flacher is a nice fit. It displays a deep garnet color with a purple rim. Classic aromas of dark plum, black cherry, thyme, sage and eucalyptus. There is an underlying note of white pepper that really captivates the senses. The palate shows dark fruit and spice with wonderful minerality and good acid. The finish is strong with white pepper, mint and fruit. I love this style
$189 the six pack
