Daniel Boccard Bugey $15.00
Historically thought of as part of Burgundy, Bugey is a designation that sits along the Rhone river between Lyon and Geneva. This Pinot Noir rose has a delicate nose of strawberries with vibrant acidity and minerality, making this a great summertime wine.
Dom Bernard moreau $18.00
A great entry level Burgundy for those looking to explore a new region, or maybe you just want a great French pinot under twenty bucks. Bright, lively nose full with floral and cherry notes. Soft tannins and lovely mouthfeel.
Perrusset Macon Villages $18.00
Just a few miles from the town of Chardonnay, Henri works 10 acres of 20 year old vines struggling on rocky limestone soils. Time on the lees but next to no oak means creamy but pure fruit. Ripe apple mixes with lemon zest and stony minerality. White Burgundy at this price??
Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais $18.50
A wonderful, juicy, fruity and earthy Gamay from the southern part of Burgundy, France. Smooth cherries and black berries dominate as well as a little mushroom and earth, great for a soft drinking red.
Savary Chablis 2014 $23.00
Chardonnay in possibly its purest form. A touch of neutral oak and bracing acidity shows the ideal balance that great Chablis can offer between the butteriness of Chardonnay and pure intense stony acid. Thanks to a great year its drinking beautifully now.
Chateau de Pizay $23.00
From the Beaujolais Cru Morgon comes this really tasty wine with light notes of red cherry, cranberry, and leather with a hint of bubblegum on the nose followed with a refreshing, smooth palate of baked cherries, surprisingly meaty tannins, and raspberries to finish it out. Goes well with leather bound books and a quiet evening.
Blain Soeur & Frere $26.00
Cru Beaujolais! Need I say more?!! This Brouilly shows bright cranberry, cherry and strawberry with subtle floral notes and just a touch of earth. A bit more tannin and structure than a base level Beaujolais with lovely acidity. Goes down easy, so grab a couple!
Cheveau Pouilly Fuisse $33.00
A beautiful, creamy, lush and rich white burgundy. A palate of finesse and character with hints of apricots, fresh Anjou pears and peaches. The nose could last for days, even if the wine itself does not, a joyous addition from Pouilly-Fuisse.
If you are a wine geek you've heard of D.R.C. wines. They retail for tens of thousands of dollars. This is a project by DRC's winemaker, Aubert de Villaine, from a smaller estate. 100% Aligote. Bright, dry, fresh fruit, similar in style to a Chablis. Great food wine pairing with shellfish and a variety of cheeses.
Parigot Volnay $46.00
Volnay is between Pommard and Meursault and often produces the best reds of the Cote de Beaune. Structured and silky, with elegance and plenty of delicious Pinot Noir fruit, black cherries, soft forest leaves, a wisp of tannic structure and lively acid. Don't touch this unless you're prepared to have your heart and palate stolen. How this is the same grape as Meomi I'll never know...
Saint Aubin $55.00
If your ready to get serious about Chardonnay, lets talk Burgundy. Here we have a premier cru just north of Chassange-Montrachet. Floral aromas complimented by subtle notes of toasted nuts, sweet honey and baking spices that develop with age. Estate grown fruit fermented on the lees in French barrels, aged for at least one year.
