Feelin’ French

feelinfrenchTues-Thurs Tasting
Nov 10- Nov 12

This week we try three tasty new wines from central and southern France. Featuring:

  • Francois Crochet “Les Perrois”, Loire Valley – Grown right across the river from Sancerre, this 100% Sav Blanc was a unique and tasty find: packed with the salinity and minerality that makes the region famous, it highlights the flavors of the grape (white peach, nectarine and apricot) while being surprisingly restrained with its citrus and acid notes. $17 btl, $7 btg
  • Mary Taylor Costieres de Nimes, Rhone – Grown in a small region of southern France, this traditional GSM blend (60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre) exemplifies Rhone wines so well that France agreed to change its appellation from Languedoc to Rhone. Fleshy and fruity, with notes of spicy dark berries, rich herbs and botanicals, and a hint of flint on the finish, it’s everything one would expect in an elegant Rhone Red. $19 btl, $8 btg
  • Domaine les Pins “Les Rochettes”, Loire Valley – This 5th generation vineyard focuses exclusively on Cabernet Francs and has received rave reviews (Wine Enthusiast & Wine Spectator, 92 pts) for its Cabs for good reason: this bright ruby wine tastes of red berries and dark plums with a touch of smoke and minerality. $17 btl, $7 btg

Tasting: $13

Paired with: Prosciutto, Arugula and Caramelized Onion Flatbread
