    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Lard, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets was not touched by frost this vintage according to winemaker Thomas Bouley. It has a very focused, energetic bouquet that unfurls with alacrity in the glass, offering more black fruit than red and subtle earthy/loamy tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, bright and tensile with just a little attenuation on the finish that I am sure will not be there once in bottle. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle and you will have a quintessential Caillerets."

    René Geoffroy

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Caviar, Cocktail, Red Meat, Risotto, Sweets


    The 2006 Extra Brut Premier Cru Millésime Terre is pure, fine and intense on the nose, with sweet cherry flavors and a spicy-mineral background. Rich, round and elegant, this is a very fruity-elegant and balanced vintage Champagne with a (very discrete) touch of Jura/Jerez oxidation on the finish. You get nice finesse and elegance here. The finish is long, complex, pretty intense and salty. Fascinating. This is a blend of 30% Chardonnay and 70% Pinot Noir that was disgorged in July 2017 with a dosage of four grams per liter.

    Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    The vines here average 45 years of age. The wine has a deep color and a lovely floral tinged perfume showing tinges of cherry. Showing lots of charm with lots of cherry and berry fruit, it is beautifully balanced with a nice underlying crispness and a long finish.

    Domaine Rebourgeon-Mure

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "Understated but powerful, the 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Grands Epenots exhibits aromas of sweet red cherries, rose petal, blood orange and dark chocolate, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered palate that's broad-shouldered and concentrated despite its elegant style, framed by succulent acids and supple tannins. This is very promising."

    Bien Nacido Estate

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA), USA (USA)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Intense cranberry and raspberry aromas meet with sultry baking spices, dried ginger, exotic wood and game on the nose of this bottling. The palate is intense in the same red fruits but layered in wild sagebrush and roasted quail, with bright acidity that is strong yet balanced. Drink now–2036."

    Domaine Rebourgeon-Mure

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "The 2017 Volnay Santenots 1er Cru comes from a parcel of 60-year-old vines. The attractive, floral bouquet is well defined, offering black and red fruit combined with iris and light incense aromas and demonstrating good vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine backbone. A more masculine Santenots compared to its peers, but conveying energy and impressive focus on the slightly ferrous finish. Excellent."

    Breads, Caviar, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "Such precise aromas of fresh strawberries, flinty stones and lightly toasted bread, leading to a palate that has impressive, vinous appeal and a supple, seamlessly fleshy, strawberry-flavored palate. Drink or hold."

    Gosset

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Caviar, Cocktail, Foie gras


    "The nose opens with the fresh ripeness of yellow apple and highlights of Granny Smith. It has beautifully subtle autolysis on the palate, deepening into notes of creamy apple crumble, Golden Delicious and Mirabelle plum, while remaining utterly strait-laced. Elegance, length and absolute freshness are inherent and quietly convincing."

    "A smoky note of roasted nut is subtly woven with the baked apple, lemon meringue and fennel seed flavors in this vibrant Champagne, with a refined, creamy mousse. Drink now through 2020."

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "From parcels planted in 1929 and 1974, the 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Vignes Franches exhibits a deep bouquet of blood orange, sweet wild berries, spices, peonies and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, ample and elegant, with a generous core of fruit framed by supple tannins and ripe acids. This is a delightful Beaune that will offer terrific value."

Not all varieties of grapes are cultivated specifically for wine, but Pinot Noir is an exception. Considered one of the oldest types of grapes in the world, there is evidence that it was in use during the days of the Roman Empire. While the production remains highest in France and parts of the United States, Germany is also home to a number of vineyards with Pinot Noir present. Those three nations account for the majority of the wine made with this grape each year. The name of the grape itself is of interest. Derived from the French words for pine and black respectively, the name describes some of the qualities that make it an ideal choice for wine production. The pine aspect refers to the way the grapes cluster as they grow. The black is a reference to the deep color and the high concentration of tannins found in the mature fruit. Several varieties of wine are produced from the grape, including some white wines. A good year will provide a pleasant bouquet, a desirable texture and taste, and serve as the ideal wine for special occasions.
