08 Mar French Highlights Tasting Sun. 3/11
Sunday, March 11
1 to 4pm
At the Bar
Join us on Sunday to taste a pair of gorgeous bargains from France, including a dynamite Beaujolais! We think Beaujolais is going to be the next big thing in French wine, and as that happens, these wines will be harder to find at such fair prices. Jump on this one while you can!
2016 Domaine Barraud Macon Villages Vieilles Vignes “Les Pierres Dorées”
On Sale $16.99
We love this old vines Chardonnay from the Macon. Loads of mineral driven acidity and a great nose of apples pears and citrus zest. The palate is classically rich and elegant with a long, dry finish. Perfect for scallops, roasted chicken or gooey soft cheese.
2015 Jean Paul Brun Beaujolais Domaine des Terres Dorees “L’Ancien”
On Sale $12.99
Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, high-pitched red berry and floral aromas, along with suggestions of incense and Asian spices. Suave, seamless and penetrating in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and rose pastille flavors that smoothly combine richness and vivacity. A spine of juicy acidity adds structure and lift as well as urgency. Leaves a deeper blue fruit note behind on the very long, sappy finish, which reveals no rough edges and impressive energy. This wine delivers some serious value.
