2015 Clos des Brusquières Chateauneuf-du-Pape
80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault
Rhone Valley, France
Rich, opulent aromas of red cherry, cranberry and raspberry, with game, caramel and spice undertones. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh, with flavors of ripe berry fruit, berry compote, dusty earth and black pepper and a smoky finish. This is as classic and delicious as Chateauneuf-du-Pape gets!
2016 Domaine Boisson, "Silice"
Clairette, Roussane, Grenache Blanc
Cairanne, Rhone Valley, France
Crisp and zippy–in contrast with the typical white Rhone, with aromas of flowers, honey and minerals. Dry and tangy palate, with a long mineral finish.
2016 Rousseau Freres
50% Pinot Meunier, 35% Pinot Gris, 15% Pinot Noir
Touraine Noble Joué, Loire Valley, France
This Rosé is a unique blend of white and red grapes, from Loire Valley’s tiny Touraine Noble Joué appellation. Soft, fruit-forward and dry, with appealing berry fruit, watermelon candy and mineral flavors.
2014 Regis Bouvier Bourgogne "En Montre Cul"
One of the better labels in the shop, and a great Burgundy to boot! Earthy aromatics lead to a crisp, light palate with flavors of red cherry, strawberry, violets and loamy earth.
2013 Jean-Marc Vincent, Santenay Vieilles Vignes
Classic Southern Burgundy red, with flavors of bright red fruits, sweet spice, and earthy undertones on a crisp, medium bodied wine.
2016 Benedicte et Stéphane Tissot, Arbois DD
Poulsard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir
One of the kind.. We are so excited to carry some of Benedicte and Stéphane Tissot wines from unknown Jura Region.
Where Is Jura??
The Jura is an old chain of mountains drawing a natural border between France and Switzerland. Even though is just 80 miles away east of the Côte de Beaune and West of the Valais, this region existed for centuries in splendid isolation. Unburdened by the ways of its neighbors, they protected their indigenous grapes and distinct vinification methods regarded as stubborn by the oenological conformists. If you are one of us who like to escape from the shallowness and tedium of the wine fashion, then Jura is for you.
Stéphane Tissot’s fascinating personality between candid kindness and an incredible obstinacy lead him to become the most highly regarded of the region’s leaders. Certified organic since 1999 and biodynamic since 2004, Stéphane’s Estate is an example of natural practices. The 30 wines produced at the estate are showcasing all the “patchwork” of the Terroir that Jura can offered, displaying an incredible “life” and a signature that you find nowhere else.
This wine will please any Burgundy and Cru Beaujolais lovers. It has an organic nose that mixes blood oranges and sour cherries. The palate is sharp and a little edgy.
I’ll suggest you grab some before it runs out.. ( We received only few cases)
2015 Benedicte et Stéphane Tissot, Arbois "Singulier"
Another great wine from Domaine Tissot: 100% Trousseau from 5 vineyards: les Rosières, Béranger, En Muzard, les Corvées sous Curon et les Bruyères
The color is pale rose with a slight bluish magenta cast; aromas of dried cherries and red currants are permeated by notes of cloves, cinnamon and rose petals, segueing in the mouth to those spicy cherries and red currants but encompassing hints of pale plums and tart mulberries. This is dry, lovely, graceful, charming, almost ephemeral, yet it’s enlivened by chiming acidity, pliant tannins and a vibrant mineral element that provide the necessary structure to be taken seriously.
2012 Domaine Alain Chavy, Bourgogne Blanc
Wow… a white burgundy from two parcels around Puligny-Montrachet. This 2012 is drinking very well with some delicate touches of grapefruit and green apple, fresh almond. The palate is complex with develop notes of white flowers, ripe apple.
A great Burgundy under $25, grab yours, this one won’t last.
2012 Tournon, "Shays Flat Vineyard"
Made by renowned Northern Rhone winemaker Michel Chapoutier, this Shiraz is a delicious cross between the bold fruit flavors of Australia and the elegance of France.
2013 Paolo Scavino, "Carobric"
A one-of-a-kind Barolo from the famous Paolo Scavino winery. With classic Barolo notes of roses, violets and blue fruits, this powerful beauty is perfect for long term cellaring.
