All Bubbly

Saturday, December 16th, 2pm

Things will be popping at the wine shop this Saturday as we let loose the corks on five sparkling wines for the holidays. Bubbles can make any event a little brighter. Come see what fits into your holiday plans.

Cune Cava Brut $11
50% Xarelo, 35% Macabeo, 15% Parellada
This little Spanish Sparkler comes from the well-known Rioja producer. It is a rich and crisp Cava with more body than you’d expect for the price.

Antoine Simoneau, Touraine Brut Blanc $13
100% Chenin Blanc
The Antoine Simoneau family estate lays in the appellation of Touraine in the Loire Valley where they have grown grapes since 1790. This Brut has a dominant fruity bouquet with white flower aromas and brioche notes.

Domaine de Saint-Just, Crémant de Loire Brut $20
80% Chenin, 20% Chardonnay
Domaine de St. Just’s organically farmed vineyards are planted on sandstone, clay and limestone soils in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. The limestone bedrock not too deep below the clay and sand helps to create a tension-filled expression of Chenin Blanc. It is a rich Crémant with fruity aromas followed by almond, quince, and pear on the palate. This finish has an elegant creamy texture with long flavors.

Champagne Lallier, Grande Reserve, Grand Cru Brut $48
65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay
Lallier is a very small négociant out of Ay, in the heart of Champagne. Their Grande Reserve is made entirely from Grand Cru vineyards. Spicy pear and orange aromas are complicated by notes of beeswax, chamomile and anise, with a nutty overtone. The Reserve is dry and expansive, offering pliant orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a touch of green almond which shows a subtle herbal quality on the finish, and clings with good authority.

Maison Parigot & Richard, Cremant de Bourgogne Rosé $24
Pinot Noir
Located in Savigny-Les-Beaune, Parigot & Richard is a 6th generation family winery specializing in sparkling wine from Burgundy. Their sparkling rosé has the subtle berry fruit aromas commonly found in Pinot Noir. In the mouth it has character, vivacity and youthfulness, while staying round and elegant.

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.

Bordeaux, Burgundy & Big Bottles

2012 Cortijo Rioja  $20
Tempranillo
A big bottle of Rioja for a little price.  Lots of ripe black cherry notes intermixed with hints of roasted herbs, loamy soil and spice box are found in this medium-bodied, fruity, spicy, fresh, lively red. 1.5 liter.  13.5% alcohol by volume

2015 Bousquet Malbec $20
A big bottle of big wine, punchy and grapy on the nose, this bright Malbec feels edgy. Flavors of spicy black cherry and kirsch finish solidly, with a hint of chocolate flavor. 1.5 liter. Organic. 13% alcohol by volume

Burgundy & Bordeaux

Stop by on Saturday and try a few samples from the King and Queen of French viticulture. 
 
Jaillance, Cremant de Bordeaux Cuveé de l’Abbaye Brut Rosé  $14
Merlot
A sparkling Rosé from the predominate grape of Bordeaux.  The Jaillance has delicate, earthy aromas and flavors of wild strawberries and white mulberries, sautéed almonds, with a silky, vibrant bubbles and an engaging sour cherry, herbal honey, and chalk finish.
 
2016 Chateau Lamothe de Haux Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux Blanc  $15
40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sémillon, 20% Muscadelle
This 4th generation family run Bordeaux estate sits on limestone soil (its cellars being dug out of the rock.)   The Blanc boasts floral and fruity aromas and is fresh and round on the palate with a crisp, dry finish.
 
2012 Olivier Morin, Bourgogne Chitry  $15
Pinot Noir
Between Auxerre and Chablis, nestling in a vineyard lined valley is Chitry-le-Fort where Olivier Morin organically cultivates 12 hectares.  This Chitry is a great deal on a Bourgogne Rouge.  It has a fresh nose with notes of cherries and roses. It is light and supple with balanced tannic structure, evolving on notes of spices and red fruits.  Was $18 now $15
 
2014 Domaine Regis Rossignol, Changarnier  $27
Pinot Noir
Régis Rossignol’s first harvest was 1950 and he completed his 62nd in 2011 on his 7 hectare estate. Régis’ winemaking philosophy is very much to craft ‘vins de terroir’, and as such he has retained most of the traditions handed down to him by his father. The Changarnier is a beautiful wine with pretty strawberry and crisp red cherry fruit on the nose. Dry, with plenty of ripe fruit on the finish. The wine is no shrinking violet and has fine tannins and high acidity.
 
2014 Chateau Angludet, Reserve d’Angludet Margaux $35
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Surrounded as it is by Grand Cru Classé properties, Château Angludet would almost certainly have been included in the famous 1855 Classification, had the property not been broken up as part of an inheritance settlement.  The Sichel family bought the estate in 1961.  Since then, they have worked to restore and improve the vineyard and cellars, giving Angludet back the reputation its exceptional terroir deserves.  The Reserve is Fragrant and alluring, with classy, ripe, slightly spicy aromas and a palate that is rich, supple and loaded with exotic flavors of sweet blackcurrant, licorice and pencil shavings.  It has elegance, aromatic finesse and their exceptional ageing potential.

2013 Leonello, Valpolicella Ripasso   $15
Corvina, Rondella, Molinara
This is a strong, full-bodied wine with an intense bouquet of red fruit conserved in spirits with agreeable hints of spices and a well-balanced taste. This is undoubtedly a Ripasso wine with an impressive, distinct, tannic, clean and elegant character.  Was $22 now $15
