Picpoul De Pinet - Hugues Beaulieu 2016
100% Folle Blanche
The color is a superb pale yellow with bright hues. The nose is elegant, with aromas of fresh fruit and citrus fruit especially grapefruit. Well-balanced with typical focusing and zesty acidity. A pure expression of the grape varietal, the wine shows how good Picpoul can be when grown on its favorite terroir.
Domaine Bousquet - Sparkling Rosé
90 Points James Suckling and Certified Organic!
A shocking salmon colored wine made from Pinot Noir & Chardonnay with thin, delicate and persistent bubbles. Notes of cherry, raspberry and a hint of toasted brioche. This elegant wine that pairs with any special occasion. Made in Argentina.
Domaine De Gry Sablon
Beaujolais Villages Emeringes 2014
Some of the vineyards that give the grapes for this wine date back to the creation of the estate on the commune of Emeringes over a hundred years ago. Dominique's ingenious grandfather of, Mr. Besson, won a bronze medal at the 1910 Concours Lépine invention competition for the invention of a filter-press. With its spark-shot ruby robe, this wine opens out with fresh red fruit aromas that come through as flavors on the rounded more-ish palate.
An enjoyable wine for anytime of day and for any occasion.
