• November Wine Club Wines 2021

    Champagne Club 
    Champagne Nominé-Renard Brut $55
    Notes:   Situated between Épernay and Sézanne to the south of the main Champagne vineyards, Nominé-Renard produces soft, ripe wines. This Nonvintage Brut is the family standard bearer, rich and rounded with an attractive toastiness showing bottle age. Citrus and white peach flavors are a contrast and allow the wine to finish freshly. 
    Red Wine Club $75 per month
    2014 Chateau du Raux Haut-Medoc $20
    Notes:  The vineyards, which comprise 50 acres, surround the 18th century château and farm buildings lying 89 feet above sea level. The soil consists of sand and gravel for the first three feet while the subsoil is composed of a deep layer of clay. This terroir combination is exceptionally conducive to promoting the development of high quality vines. The surface soil enables a slow growth process as a result of its poor mineral substances, whereas the subsoil provides water regularly. The trellised vines are 27 years of age and trained in the Double Guyot method. In accordance with the great growths of Médoc, Château du Raux is well situated near the Gironde Estuary which provides an oceanic climate that is both mild and humid.

    The name “Raux” stems from the ancient Oc language (the old dialect of the region) and means “stream,” a nod to its positioning near the Gironde Estuary. Château du Raux produces a wine typical of the Médoc—deep in color, full bodied and seamlessly structured with room to develop if cellared. The nose offers pleasing spices which lead to a smooth and clean yet elegant palate.

    2013 Casisano Brunello di Montalcino $55                                                    

    Notes:  This bright Brunello shows elegance and finesse, and it offers pretty aromas of cherry, blackberry, cassis, leather, spice and tobacco. The palate is firm and compact, with a long finish that bears sweet-tasting fruit flavors and silky tannins.  the best part about this wine...it's average price online is around $75!
