Pierre Andre Bourgogne Blanc Reserve ($19.99): Light gold in colour. The flavors are fresh and elegant: white flowers, lime, hazelnut. The palate is accurate with a good acidity that blends nicely with fine woody notes of toast and dried fruit.
Pierre Andre Nuits-Saint-Georges ($39.99): This offering features cherries and raspberries on the floral hinted nose. The body is medium and elegant with dark fruit and herbs opening into a touch of rustic spice and a soft vibrant finish.
Lavau Rasteau ($16.99): Crisp blackberry and cherry flavors are bright, but this complex wine is more about their interplay with earthier tones of smoke, game and mushroom. Rich and full on the palate yet balanced firmly with tannins and acidity, it’s a stately wine with a lingering, slightly astringent chestnut finish.
Lavau Chateauneuf du Pape ($35.99): 50% Grenache / 50% Syrah. A generous yet well-balanced wine with long-lingering aromas. Aromas of spiced fruit, black plums, blackberries, tanned leather, coffee, and dark chocolate with earthy undertones. Notes of candied, black cherry and black plum fruits on the palate. Full and well-balanced showing extreme finesse and remarkable length.
