NV Henri Giraud Esprit Blanc de Blanc, Champagne, France
Price: $59.99/bottle or $719.88/case
Sale: $53.99/bottle or $647.89/case
On the nose, preserved citrus fruits, fresh hazelnuts and the spring flowers – acacia, mock orange and honeysuckle – offer a magnificent bouquet of great restraint and distinction. In the mouth, the initial impact is fresh, frank and savory, without a hint of “bite”, and accompanied by an uplifting and “crispy” effervescence. The finish is particularly distinct and mineral (limestone).
2012 Flying Solo Grenache – Viognier, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Price: $10.49/bottle or $125.88/case
Sale: $9.44/bottle or $113.28/case
Aromatic nose of citrus with a crisp, lively palate. Good acidity with a clean finish. 85% Grenache Blanc, 15% Viognier
2011 Stéphane Brocard Pouilly-Fuissé, Burgundy, France
Price: $24.99/bottle or $299.88/case
Sale: $22.49/bottle or $269.89/case
With subtle wild flower and mineral aromas and an attractive, pale straw colour, this delicately oaked Pouilly Fuissé wine has a wonderfully understated palate with great texture and delineation and textbook orchard fruit and wet pebble nuances.
2011 Renwood BBQ Zinfandel, California, USA
Price: $13.99/bottle or $167.88/case
Sale: $12.59/bottle or $151.09/case
With a nose of cracked pepper, clove, and blackberry, this Zinfandel is a great backyard experience. The entry of the wine shows a rich body with the spices in the nose carrying though into the flavor with hints of smoke. These flavors are further enhanced with elements of raspberry and cherry. All of these characteristics lend themselves nicely to grilled meats and vegetables. 89.8% Zinfandel, 9.6% Syrah, 0.5% Mourvedre, 0.1% Alicante Bouche.
2009 Alfredo Roca Cabernet Sauvignon, San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina
Price: $14.99/bottle or $179.88/case
Sale: $13.49/bottle or $161.89/case
In the nose, ripe fruit aroma which is then perceived in the mouth, combined with firm but soft tannins. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
