45% Macabeo, 25% Xarel-lo, 30% Parellada
This Catalan sparkling wine is made in the Traditional or Champagne method from organic grapes. The three grape varieties are fermented separately and then blended before a second fermentation process which takes place in the bottle for more than twelve months. Brilliant appearance. Gives off a considerable amount of small and medium-sized bubbles. The color is pale straw yellow. Good body. Smooth and silky, fresh and lively, providing a long finish.
Dibon Brut Rosé Cava  $11
Granacha
Clear red and pinkish tones. Small bubbles are gently released to form various strings that rise to the surface. Smells of fruits, raspberry and blackcurrant. Full in the mouth with a splendid bubbly sensation that fills the whole palate. Red fruit also appears, even more markedly in the nose. Long finish and great elegance.

Sunday at 5:30 is our Special Champagne Tasting!
We have a couple of spaces left for this so let us know if you want to come.

All Bubbles

Saturday, December 8th, 2pm

This Saturday we are getting all bubbly with a fine line up of sparkling wines.  It is a great way to get ready for the holidays, and as usual (for us anyway) we’ve come up with some less than usual example to tease the mind as well as the palate.  Come join us.  The corks pop out at 2pm. This has been a VERY popular tasting – show up sooner, rather than later. We WILL run out.

2016 Rosell Mir, El Serralet Rosé Brut Nature  $16
Trepat, Pinot Noir
A crisp and unusual, not to mention delicious rosé Cava.  Organic

Tessari, Garganega Brut  $15
From a Veneto Soave producer, this Sparkling Garganega has an intense aroma of apple, elderberry and chamomile are bewitching. Fresh and persistent on the palate, with a delightful aftertaste of bitter almonds and a playful mineral sparkle.
Was $18 now $15

Cave de Bissey Cremant de Bourgogne      $18
60% Aligoté, 10% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
Close to Givry and Buxy, Bissey is on the cool side of the Côte Chalonnaise, giving its sparkling wines that extra freshness. This Brut is bright, crisp, laced with apples and tangy lemon zest.

Champagne Moutard, Brut Grande Cuvée  $32
Pinot Noir
The Grande Cuvee is aged for at least three years. The wine is complex and nuanced, with fine, intense bubbles. It has a seductive bouquet of pears, grilled almonds, mineral notes and apple pie followed by rich flavors of ripe stone fruits, honey and buttered toast and a remarkably ling, delicate finish.

2017 Patton Valley, Petillant Natural Sparkling Riesling  $23
An un-disgorged, unfiltered, funky bottle of bubbles, this Petillant has all of the freshness, fizz, and fun of this style, the aromatic snap and bloom of bright apples, and a whole lot of citrus, white peach, and quince. The nose is racy, but the wine is abundant.  Organic

Tis the Season — Champagne Tasting

Sunday, December 9th, 5:30 pm

$25 (plus tax)

It is time again to try some Bubbles.  We have some Vintage, some Special Club, & all Grower fantastic Champagnes to sip on.  We’ll have some appetizers to go with and still get you home for Sunday dinner.

We’ll be offering a 10% discount on these wines this evening.

2009 Copinet Monsieur Leonard Blanc de Blanc  $53
Chardonnay
This tête du cuvée reflects the very best selections from the 2009 vintage. Both creamy yet zingy with acidity, it coats the mouth with pear, melon, and citrus, with a huge, layered 5- minute finish of marzipan, nutmeg, mulled – wine – spice, orange and Meyer lemon.

Durmont & Fils Solera Reserve Brut  $50
Chardonnay
This is made using the solera method. Dumont has dedicated one stainless steel tank that was first filled in 1991. He has been adding to the tank every year, making it at present, a blend of approximately 20 vintages.  There is a lot going on here: apple, pear, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, kiwi, butter, cream and vanilla.  Organic

2012 A. Margaine Special Club Brut 1er  $85
100% Chardonnay 
The vintage Blanc de Blancs [the “Spécial Club” bottling] from this grower based in the little-known village of Villers-Marmery at the far eastern end of the Montagne de Reims is refined, incisive, and vinous, built on understated lemon fruit, and acquiring tantalizing walnut-butter notes with time.
 
Pehu Simonet Blanc de Noir Grand Cru  $85
Pehu Simonet is a smaller producer locate in Verzenay, which is a Pinot Noir-dominated grand cru village in the Grande Montagne de Reims area. The pure Pinot gives a powerful character to this Champagne. There is terrific tension, producing a wine that is firmly structured, full of ripe flavors of white fruit and red apple skin. It’s full bodied and dry in the Pehu-Simonet style.
 
Jean Vesselle Oeil de Perdrix Rosé  $58
100% Pinot Noir
A grower Rosé Champagne from Bouzy.  Dried rose petals, orange zest, white pepper and mint give much of its high-toned aromatics, but there is plenty of depth to the fruit as well. Deceptively medium in body, the Oeil de Perdrix possesses striking finesse and exceptional overall balance. Oeil de Perdrix is an old-fashioned style of Blanc de Noirs with just a touch of color from a very short period of skin contact at pressing.
