Barone Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico ($22.99): Intense ruby red. Fresh and floral bouquet with hints of quinine, violets and mimosa, followed by generous fruit sensations of blackberries, passion fruit kola and sweet mint leaves. Plush mouth feel, ripe red fruit and spicy taste. Silky tannins and well balanced palate.
Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir ($46.99): This Pinot is showing well right away. Fragrant with floral, earthy notes on the nose. The palate brings red raspberry, cherry and other red fruits, a nice, crisp structure and an elegant, stylish finish. Comparisons to a Beaune Premier Cru would not be far off with this releas.
Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran ($19.99): “A wine that smiles and makes you smile! It is stylistically close to Pouilly-Fuissé, with its golden hue, its greenish reflection and its refreshing taste. The aromas are reminiscent of the ripe Chardonnay grape, with subtle notes of musk. A pleasant roundness coats the palate” – Drouhin
