2011 Val De Condesa Eylo Verdejo Rueda Castilla Y Leon (Spanish White Wine) $10.99
The modern Val de Vid winery, located in the village of Serrada in northwestern Spain, built new facilities in 2005 under the leadership of José Antonio Merayo. A young and enthusiastic team of winemakers takes care of the winery’s 50 acres of vineyards of Verdejo grapes and also the 150 acres under their control, all planted 3,000 feet above sea level. The result is an aromatic and well-rounded Rueda, typical of wines from the area, but modern and full of character. The wine expresses a very clean and fruity style of Rueda. Melon notes join up with toasted lemon, oranges, and yellow apples. Drink now or in the next few years.
2011 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis-Champs Royaux Villages (Chardonnay) $18.99
Like most Chablis makers, William Fevre crafts cuvees at various quality and price levels, including premier crus and grand crus from individual vineyards. “Champs Royaux” is not a single- vineyard Chablis, but rather a quality wine from a number of terrific sites in the appellation, vinified in precisely the same manner as Fevre’s premier and grand crus. “There is a pretty mix of pear, green fruit and iodine hints that merge seamlessly into rich, round and very generous flavors that benefit from a touch of backend minerality. This delicious and saline-infused effort is really very good. Worth considering. Outstanding Top Value.”- Allen Meadows (Burghound)
2008 Luis Cañas Crianza Rioja Crianza (Spanish Red Wine) $16.99
The winery is owned and directed by Juan Luis Cañas, considered one of the most restless vintners in the country. Dynamic, edgy and a perfectionist, he has a real passion for vineyard and cellar, to which he devotes his life. This wine has a nose that is fresh and clean with red fruits, balsamic notes and a hint of cedar and sandalwood. The palate is very soft, with a nice velvety feel in the mouth. The palate is filled with notes of red fruit (raspberries and cherries...). It has a pleasant, silky finish in which the balsamic aftertaste reappears. It is ideal to pair with meats; red meat, poultry, small game, oily fish, semi-cured cheeses, spicy dishes and hot dishes such as beans or potatoes Rioja style.
2010 Tenuta di Ghizzano Il Ghizzano (Super Tuscan Red Wine) $18.99
Ghizzano is a small hillside village about 200 metres above sea level, located on the Tuscan coast, 40 km from Livorno and 40 km south of Pisa. The winery and olive mill are situated around the tower built by the Venerosi Pesciolini family in 1370. This is the wine that “introduced” the estate into wine bars, wine stores and restaurants all over the world. It is made of Sangiovese grapes with a small percentage of Merlot, grown mainly in from their “Santa Maria” and “Il Monte” vineyards. The philosophy behind Il Ghizzano is that of offering consumers a fresh, fruity, easy to drink wine featuring all the sweetness of the local Sangiovese.
Since 1808, Champagne Henriot, one of the last independent and family-owned houses in Champagne, has pursued a tradition of excellence – a fragile balance between delicacy, intensity, and purity. For seven generations, the family has selected only the very best vineyards, concentrated on the purity of chardonnay and has upheld the utmost respect for time in order to ensure the cuvee has an opportunity to reach its full expression. The choices made in blending perpetuate the house style: chardonnay reigns in proportion (fifty to sixty percent). It brings finesse, elegance, richness and freshness. Pinot noir gives essential structure. Pinot meunier contributes fruit complexity. Non vintage wines may contain as many as fifty different crus in precisely orchestrated balance, with roughly twenty percent reserve wines. It is again Champagne Henriot’s task to impart a distinct personality to its wines. These wines, which may be a decade in age and are tasted at least every three months, comprise the house’s library, guaranteeing the perpetuity of its style
NV Henriot Souverain Brut Champagne $36.99
92 Points Wine Spectator: “Well-structured and powered by firm acidity, this offers notes of glazed apple, black cherry, candied lemon zest and toasted brioche, with a lingering hint of mineral. Clean finish. Drink now through 2015.” “Light gold. Fresh pear, melon and lemon zest on the floral- and mineral-accented nose. Bright and energetic, offering spicy pear and lemon curd flavors enlivened by chalky minerality. Shows a suave blend of richness and energy, with impressive finishing clarity and stony persistence. A more lively showing than I expected for this bottling, which typically displays more musky, smoky character.”- (IWC)
NV Henriot Rose Brut Champagne $59.99
92 Points Wine Spectator: “Smoky, with notes of toasted hazelnut and brioche enriching kirsch, black currant candy and dried apricot flavor. Tightly knit and lively, with fine texture and a firm, focused finish. Drink now through 2020.” “Light orange-pink. Mineral- and smoke-accented aromas of red berries and blood orange, with a spicy nuance that gains strength in the glass. Toasty and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, with silky texture and a suave floral overtone. The toast and red berry qualities come back strong on the long, clinging finish.”- (IWC)
