TEN UNDER TWENTY TASTING
April 1, 2015

                                  

 

APRIL....taxes, old bills to be paid, reassessing the damage this past winter hath wrought (by the way this was the WARMEST winter on record. http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/topstories/this-winter-was-warmest-on-record/ar-BBirI0n.  Maybe AL Gore is correct! (oh...in the eastern United States it was the COLDEST winter on record...but never mind)

At any rate I thought I would do my part to help soften the blows of reality this month by offering a bargain tasting, so we can enjoy some good wine but still keep some cash for the tax man.

So...MONDAY, APRIL 13TH  we will convene and taste lots of good wine at a moderate price.  At least ten wines will be offered, all under the $20.00 price point.

These are wines you will be able to enjoy all summer and winter long because they won't break the bank, and you won't feel guilty about opening a second bottle for company.

Wines will be from all over the world,and will include reds and whites. Sorry not much from Bulgaria or Paraguay, but those might be for another tasting....
As usual space will be limited to 24 people .  Make your reservations early.
cost $25 per person, $40 a couple. THIS IS THE DEAL OF THE YEAR.

JUNE CONNOISSEUR CLUB
May 29, 2014

This month was a once in a lifetime opportunity to obtain and offer FOUR different vintages of the highly acclaimed Vieux Telegraph red chateau neuf du pape.

At the GOLD LEVEL we will be sending out one bottle of either a 2008, 2009, 2010, or 2011.
These are all rated in the 90's by the Wine Spectator or Robert Parker's Wine Advocate,
Along with the Vieux Telegraph, the Gold Members will receive a bottle of the younger vine Vieux Telegram, also highly acclaimed.

At the SILVER LEVEL you will receive one bottle of the Vieux Telegraph and at the BRONZE LEVEL
you will received the Vieux Telegram, a young Chateau Neuf du Pape which is drinking well now.

I expect to be doing a in store tasting of these wines in the next two months, so stay tuned.
DON'T drink your selection until you come to the tasting and enjoy the wines.

SPRING CONNOISSEUR CLUB APRIL
March 27, 2014

SO  this must be spring.  Snow not remaining on the ground very long....some birds trying to irritate us at 7 am so it must be spring.
 This month A number of our customers are going to Paris for conferences, vacations, passing through visit the kids in Italy or Germany.  So how appropriate to spoil you with the best of the best of Burgundian reds and whites.

At the Gold Level you will be receiving a bottle of the Domaine Follin-Arbelet Aloxe Corton "Les Vercots"  OR  Domaine Follin-Arbelet Aloxe Corton "Clos du Chaptire". Both are produced on the small estate of Christine and Franck Follin-Arbelet, organically sustained vineyards, less than 3 acres, less than 1000 bottles.

Also each Gold Level will also receive a bottle Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne Montrachet Premier Cru .  This white Burgundy is to be savored with a special dish of white food, chicken, specialty fish, nothing overly complicated to confuse the palate,  This wine needs to be the star of the meal, so nothing too too spicy.

At the Bronze Level we are offering from the Maison Roche de Bellene a Bourgogne old vines white  and red, chardonnay and pinot noir.  They do not have the finesse of the estate bottled wines but are grea examples of the intensity of 65 year old vines.

As you wipe the snow from your windows to see blue skies and listen to the birds, relax with a glass of something special.  Any of our offerings this month will do the trick.

Wine of the Day

DUCKHORN VINEYARDS
$100.00
April showers brings may flowers..or so we were told as kids. This April, however, will bring us Ducks...well Duckhorn winery at any rate.  The winery has held a prominant place in Napa VAlley for nearly half a century and is renowned for its red wines, especially its Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. A few years ago the winery branched out into some terrific blends such as Paraduxx . They also created an entry level selection of their wines called DECOY. All of the Duckhorn wines are first rate quality and difficult to come by.  This month's Connoisseur Club will have an opportunity to enjoy a sampling of their very best. At the GOLD LEVEL our Club members will enjoy the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot. At the SILVER LEVEL  our members will receive the Merlot and Paraduxx blend.  And Bronze members will receive the Merlot, a great benchmark wine which reflects the absolute finest example of that varietal grape.  Enjoy and always keep your DUCKS in a row in the wine cellar !
