FUN, FRESH AND FRENCH

April 7, 2017
Join us this Friday for a fantastic tasting of four great French wines that we think exemplify their regions and varietals quite well. Don’t miss this great opportunity to try some approachable and lively wines that fit any budget, including some seasonally appropriate lighter reds and a pair of great, every day whites.

Chateau de Tours Brouilly ($19.99) Ripe, gentle, plush and jammy, this is a soft, rounded wine with rich berry fruits and a simple, yet soulful palate. Fleshier and more complex than a Beaujolais Nouveau, but still simple and quite approachable. The generous texture comes over more vividly than the acidity. Fruity, fresh and ready to drink.

Dom. des Chenes Les Grand Meres Cotes de Roussillon ($16.99): Domaine des Chênes has been owned by the Razungles family for more than a century. Convinced of the outstanding potential that the Roussillon offers, Gilbert, Simone and their son Alain have skillfully combined know-how, attention to detail and passion to bring out the best of their terroir. This blend of Carignane, Grenache and Syrah is no exception and exemplifies the juicy jouissance of the region’s wines

Ferraton Samorens Cotes du Rhone Blanc ($12.99): Samorens Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a smoking deal that the savvy consumer should not hesitate to snatch up. Made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Viognier that was brought up all in stainless steel, it gives up lots of tropical fruits, pear and tangerine in a rich, medium-bodied, classy and classic style that just begs to be drunk. Fresh and zippy with lively brightness that keeps the party going.

Kiwi Cuvee Sauvignon Blanc ($9.99): Light scents of lime, white melon rind, green gooseberry and fresh-cut grass dance on the nose of this dainty and elegant, show-stoppingly priced white, followed by lifted and unapologetic flavors of underripe pear, tropical tree fruit and tart currant on the light-weight, ephemeral palate. Fresh and lively, a perfect accompaniment to brunch with friends or just kicking back on a warm spring day.
