Simonnet-Febvre Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé NV

Regular price: $22.99

Sale Price: $17.99

Fresh and lively, this lovely sparkling wine of 100% Pinot Noir is as charming as it is delicious. Bright and affable red berry flavors followed by crisp and clean acidity makes this a perfect aperitif.

Antoniolo ‘Bricco Lorella’ Vino Rosato, Gattinara 2016

Regular price: $22.99

Sale Price: $17.99

From vineyards nestled in the Alps of the Alto Piemonte comes this stunning Nebbiolo-based Rosé. The aromatics leap from the glass, offering juicy red cherries, raspberry, and a touch of spice.. IN the mouth,  the wine is both structured and refreshing. A long and lively finish rounds out this remarkable rosato.

Domaine Charles Audoin Bourgogne, 2015

Regular Price $34.99

Sale price $27.99

The earthy and mushroomy aromas of forest and red berries leads to supple, round and refreshing flavors in this classically styled Pinot Noir. Ripe fruit well balanced with invigorating acidity allows this wine to shine with a wide variety of food.

Château de La Greffières Mâcon la Roche Vineuse VV 2016

Regular price: $18.99

Sale Price: $14.99

This is a rich and well balanced chardonnay from 50+ year old vines. A notable oak presence does not overwhelm the ripe apple and hazelnut aromas and flavors and the lingering finish is particularly impressive in a wine of this price.

 

Domaine Saint Andeol Cairanne 2014

Regular Price $19.99

Sale price $15.99

There are written records suggesting that the village of Cairanne was producing well-thought-of wine in the 10th century. Unsurprisingly then, this blend of mostly grenache and syrah is a thoroughly un-modern wine. It’s not ‘viscous’ and ‘hedonistic’, instead, it’s restrained and balanced and matter-of-factly unpretentious. And the perfect wine for an understated evening.

Domaine Weinbach Cuvée Théo Riesling, Alsace 2015

Regular price: $38.99

Sale Price: $29.99

This is a just slightly sweet Riesling from one of the great producers of Alsace. It’s full-bodied and intense with ripe fruit and impressive weight. Generous and rich, this wine is frankly delicious…and if masked with red food coloring would be a huge hit among the ‘red only’ wine bigots.
