  • 2019 Dyckerhoff ‘Petit Gris’ Rosé

    $23.00
    Tasting Notes ~ Domaine Dyckerhoff consists of 7 hectares in Reuilly in the central Loire near Bourges, about an hour west of the region of Sancerre. The allowed varieties of Reuilly are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The Pinot Gris is only allowed for rosé, resulting in a wine with the slightly pink tint and rich texture, it’s more than just a dry rosé. The wines of Reuilly are pleasurable and easy to drink, a racy, cool-climate style that is sure to please, and can be great alternatives to Sancerre in terms of value. Pale salmon color, fruit forward nose, great length and freshness in the palate with flavors of wild strawberries, peach skin and mineral.

  • 2018 Cicada’s Song Rosé

    $18.00
    Tasting Notes ~ Produced by the loved Château des Annibals this classic Provençal rose has aromas of fresh red berries, melon, and sweet white flowers. The round palate has plenty of sea air minerality and lilting acid woven into the fleshy stone fruit and light raspberry, framed by wild herbs and white pepper. The innovative use of Rolle (also known as Vermentino) and the ancient Tibouren grape for most of the blend sets this apart from other Provence rosés by giving it a savory complexity and invigorating, wind-swept snap. Don’t be afraid of the vintage - both the 2018 and 2019 Provence Rose vintage produced wines so high in tight acidity that they are just now calming down in the bottle and are now absolutely perfect!

    Vinous 94 ~ The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru, Alain Chavy’s favourite amongst his Premier Cru Puligny, has a taut, stony bouquet that shows a little more vivacity than the other Premier Crus at the moment. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, fine nervosité with a precise finish that is clearly a step above its "siblings". Excellent and I concur with its creator - this is one of the domaine's standouts.

    Tasting Notes ~ The Michel family has been producing wines in the region of Chablis since the early 19th century. The family vineyard, whose vines are 45 years old on average, is located in the heart of the original Chablis terroir. The Domaine’s vineyards cover all four appellations: Chablis Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Chablis and Petit Chablis. The Domaine has one guiding principle: in a terroir as rich and unique as Chablis, the wines are made in the vineyard with human intervention kept to a strict minimum. This Chablis reveals white fruit notes such as peach, and has a persistent mineral structure. In the mouth a stony sensation (which is so typical of Chablis) with a round mid body and a refreshing finish. Native yeast fermentation, minimal filtering and spending 6 to 10 months in stainless steel. This is pure Chablis!

    Tasting Notes ~ Tavel is the only all-Rose appellation in the Rhone of France. Said to be the only Rose that can actually age (and improve with age). It has been a favorite among royalty since the 18th century - said to be Lous XIV favorite style of wine. Tavel Rose is always dry with fleshy, round body structures (much like a light red wine) and blanched by acidity. Chateau La Nerthe is comprised of mostly of Grenache and Grenache Blanc as well as Syrah, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Bourboulenc all hand harvested from the Estate vineyards that are certified organic. This vivid pink Tavel is extremely aromatic. The nose is complex with blood oranges and graphites notes enhanced with raspberry and peach character. The palate is juicy, with a chalky-mineral acidity and a bright and energetic finish.

    James Suckling 98 ~ A firm and vivid Champagne with a precise, focused palate. Full-bodied and dry. It’s very layered and bright with light pineapple, peach, praline, cooked-apple and stone aromas and flavors. It’s very subtle and focused at the end. Integrated with richness and high acidity. Good depth. Reminds me of the 1995. Very clean. Solid. Lovely to drink already, but will age nicely.

  • 2007 Billecart-Salmon ‘Cuvée Elisabeth’ Champagne Brut Rosé

    $240.00
    WS 94 WA 97
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97 ~ Created in 1988 as a tribute to one of the house’s founders, Elisabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon's iconic 2007 Millésime Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth displays a beautifully radiant, shimmering orange-salmon color. The bouquet of this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend is as intense as it is delicate and vinous, displaying red and yellow-fleshed fruit intertwined with floral, chalky and citrus notes as well as a noble sur lie character. Round, lush and delicate on the palate, this is a highly elegant, charming, beautifully balanced rosé with great finesse and amazingly fine grip on the long yet pure, tensioned, well-structured and stimulatingly salty finish. This rosé Champagne is close to perfection! A small percentage of the Pinot Noir—from old vines in the south-facing Valofroy parcel in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ—was vinified as red wine and added to give this unique color and vinosity. The other Pinots are sourced in the grand crus Verzenay and Aÿ, and the Chardonnay comes from grand crus in the Côte des Blancs, namely Chouilly, Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger.

    James Suckling 92 ~ A complex, reliable Champagne that would show well in all occasions thanks to its freshness and class. Drawing on all three grapes (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier), this has a complex grilled-nut and autolysis character overlayed across red berries and citrus fruits. Definitely a lot of reserve wine character here. The palate delivers lemons, grapefruit, peaches and mangoes in a refreshingly pure, fleshy style. The bright acidity, handy balance and tannins smoothly frame the finish.
