• Easter Bunny Escapes in Burgundy on 4/14

    Well..maybe in Bothell
    4pm on Friday the 14th
    It's that time of year folks where you try to explain to the kids how the Easter bunny lays eggs! Also, it's time to taste some wines that will go perfect with that Easter brunch, dinner or whatever you do for this holiday. For the first part out of the two part series...I'm thinking Burgundy. Red's that are not light yet not huge and whites that beg for some satly food!

    Welcome Domane Michel Sarrazin et Fils

    2014 Bourgogne Aligote Charnailes - A racy and fresh Aligoté, grown on a hillside vineyard not far both from the family home and the towering, fifteenth-century Château de Charnailles.

    2014 Bourgogne Rouge - From an exceptional hillside vineyard on pure limestone soils, terroir that would make many a Côte d’Or cru jealous. Concentrated and spicy, this is an overachieving wine and a stellar value, too.

    2014 Givry Les Grognots Blanc - Legend has it that good king Henry IV loved Givry wines so much he made them his preferred tipple at court. Medium-bodied and silky, this pure Burgundian Chardonnay hails from the highest-altitude vineyard in Givry.

    2013 Givry Sous La Roche Rouge - One of Givry’s highest-altitude vineyards, this rocky, iron-rich plot (‘Sous La Roche’ means ‘under the rock’) delivers a wine of structure and substance, ruddy red fruit and lots of spice.

    2014 Maranges - South of Santenay, on the very tip of the Cote d’Or, the Burgundy village of Maranges is often overlooked, but the estate’s plot of older vines here is a serious insider’s find. Sexy, silky red fruits and a light peppery spice make this a must-have

    The perfect wines for a crazy family get together holiday.
