19 Oct New Arrival Pinot & White Burgundy
Delicious New Arrivals!
Amazing Bargains from France and California!
We have a few new arrivals that are offering some serious drinking pleasure for very reasonable prices! We spend a good amount of our time each week tasting. We easily taste hundreds of wines in a month (with a spit bucket, because we’re classy) and from that, only a handful of wines make it into the shop! It’s so important to taste, because there’s just so much out there. It’s easy to buy based on price or critic score, but we think the “right way” is to taste it and buy what’s good! So we sample daily with our whole crew, we select by committee, and that why we feel comfortable offering a money-back guarantee on every bottle we sell.
2018 Domaine Jean Touzot “Vieilles Vignes,” Macon-Villages AOP
On Sale $14.99
The Touzot Macon Villages is a classic example of the appellation. Green apples and tart peach skins are lively, crisp, juicy, and persistent; flower, citrus, and melon are underpinned by mineral notes. It is the perfect white wine for both happy hour and the dinner table, served chilled but not ice-cold. This wine would go particularly well with light fish, shrimp, crab, and roasted bird but it’s also a great aperitif. The Touzot Macon Villages represents outstanding value in Burgundy.
2018 Poseidon Project Pinot Noir, California
On Sale $12.99
Poseidon Project is a stunning, value-driven Pinot Noir, planted on well-drained limestone soil 35 miles off the cool, marine influenced central coast of California. Aromas of raspberry, red flowers, and Asian spice lead to a balanced palate of black cherry and cedar box. It’s juicy, with a fleshy and full mid-palate, and offering a touch more concentrated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of mocha than we’d expect at this price point! It finishes long with a touch of spice.
