    Moët & Chandon

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    "This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Bâtard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006. Drink now."

    97 points - James Suckling, Jan 2018

    "There's a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satinlike mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. Drink now through 2029."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Fremiers was cropped at just 9 hectoliters per hectare, or two barrels, this vintage. It has a gentle bouquet that works up through the gears with aeration, developing lovely mineral-rich red cherry and strawberry fruit with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite poised and focused, not a powerful or fruit-driven Pommard but brimming over with tension and poise. Excellent."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "There is enough wood to warrant mentioning but not enough to overshadow the wonderfully spicy aromas of plum, black cherry and cassis. I very much like the texture of the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that are at once powerful yet refined, all wrapped in a very firm, balanced and long finish."

    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."

    Egly-Ouriet

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Caviar, Foie gras


    From the very first cuvee, Egly-Ouriet is distinguished for its ability to preserve exacting precision and outstanding chalk mineral focus in the midst of magnificent generosity. This is a vinous wine of calm authority, carrying the full grandeur and complexity of carefully tended, old-vine pinot noir on some of Champagne's most revered Grand Crus, It juxtaposes freshness and depth, a marvel of red cherries, plums, dried fruits, and mixed-spice of rippling intensity, showcasing four and a half years on lees, yet at every moment impeccably focused with scintillating acidity and miner-infused poise. A paradox of luxurious generosity and crystalline purity.

    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.

    Bien Nacido Estate

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables


    "A huge, explosive wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyards is another Pinot that is going to need time to come into its own. Soaring aromatics and intense, red-toned fruit make a strong opening impression. Readers should expect a boisterous, structured Pinot Noir endowed with serious heft."

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    "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."

    Lelarge-Pugeot

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Caviar, Foie gras, Sweets, Tarte tatin, White Meat


    This pinot noir rosé is from 30 year old vines, fermented and rested for six months in tank and blended with 7 percent Coteaux Champensois prior to three years en tirage. The medium pink hued fizz is imbued with strawberry, wild cherry, raspberry brioche and red / pink florals that dart around the mouth buoyed by brisk acidity. There is a gentle padding on the palate, the result of three years on the lees. As with all of the Lelarge Pugeot wines, there is a riff of meringue that lingers on the finish.

    René Geoffroy

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "The rich fig and red apple friuts of Cumières meunier create a compelling contrast with crisp malic acidity and tight grapefruit and lemon zest notes. Three years on lees makes for a generous maturity for an entry cuvée, reinforcing honey and fruit cake spice and a creamy texture."
    93 points - Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2016-2017

     

    "A fresh and graceful Champagne, this offers a creamy profile of Jonagold apple, pink grapefruit sorbet, spring blossom and minerally oyster shell, all framed by lively acidity that dances across the palate. Disgorged April 2017. Drink now through 2022."

    92 points - Wine Spectator, Dec 2018

     

    "Geoffroy's NV Brut Premier Cru Expression is totally alive in the glass. Vibrant and delineated, the Expression bursts from glass with dried pears, flowers, almonds and Chamomile. A blend of 47% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir and 13% Chardonnay, the Expression is all about texture and volume from the red grapes, which give tons of richness without detracting from the wine's essential energy, tension and pure drive. A crystalline, layered finish rounds things out beautifully. This is a great showing from a wine loaded with class."

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.
