Champagne ClubFor the month of March I decided that I wanted a Champagne that was a bit different and rare. Being that the 2009 is only the second vintage they have produced and one of the favorites in the shop. Notes: Yellow in colour with glints of light amber. Discreet and extremely fine bubbles. Intense bouquet combining sweet flowers (honeysuckle, broom), yellow fruits (peach) and lightly roasted dried nuts (hazelnut). Evolves towards spicy and citrus notes with a hint of Sancho pepper as well as soft, sweet, ripe notes of chestnut cream. Ample and light on entry to the palate. Ample, thanks to its sweet, creamy, almost spherical texture that seductively wraps around the mouth, coating the palate; light, due to its elegant, saline freshness that «stretches» the wine giving it a smooth, delicate and airy mouthfeel. You will not fail to be charmed by its juicy aromas of sun-drenched fruit that gently caress the palate. An elegant bitterness combined with zesty, spicy and delicate oaky notes linger on the finish. $95Red Wine Club2014 Moulin de Duhart, Pauillac - Château Duhart-Milon’s second wine is selected on the same basis as the “Grand Vin”. In general, the grapes are from the younger plots in the vineyard. Moulin de Duhart has several characteristics similar to the grand vin, but with less potential for ageing as its barrel ageing period is shorter. It should be consumed younger than its more robust counterpart. The origin of the name comes from the former presence of a windmill on the Carruades plateau, next to the Duhart-Milon vineyard. $432012 San Lorenzo La Gattara Rosso Conero - San Lorenzo Rosso Conero La Gattara is a velvety and deep red, soft and at the same time particularly expressive. Dark ruby red in appearance, the nose expresses deep notes of ripe red fruit embellished with balsamic and spicy tones. A vegetal trace opens to a long, material taste, characterized by a thick and soft tannins. Vibrant, closes on notes of fruit jam, of particular persistence. Throughout the meal, it goes well with rich meat dishes. Try it with a particularly seasoned beef tartare. Excellent on all types of roasts. $32Daily Drinking Red Wine Club2016 Principato Red Blend - Some might say this is a Bordeaux-type blend being that it's 80% Merlot & 20% Cab Sauv but...it's grown in Italy and taste nothing like a wine from Bordeaux. It is full-bodied, rich with an elegant finish but its the spices that really get me. For the price...I love this wine. $132016 Principato Pinot Noir - The grapes are picked at peak maturity and undergo fermentation for 6-8 days under controlled temperatures in small stainless steel vats. The wine then is placed in larger oak barrels, where it rests on its lees until malolactic fermentation has occurred. The wine is refined in tank before bottling and release. A perfect complement to grilled meats, salmon and turkey. $132016 Domaine de Couron Marselan - Quality aromas and flavors of black currants, wild herbs, loamy earth, tobacco leaf and background meatiness to go with a medium-bodied, nicely balanced profile on the palate. It is quite good and well worth the price of admission. $13
