3 Bottles of 2019 Docil Vinho Verde
This Portuguese white wine from Dirk Niepoort is composed entirely of the Loureiro grape. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and given five months aging on its fine lees in tank, prior to bottling. It is bright and complex, jumping from the glass in a fine blend of lime, green apple, white flowers, a nice touch of brininess and a fine base of stony minerality. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has a touch of effervescence for bounce on the backend, with an excellent core of fruit, fine focus and grip and a long, zesty finish.
3 Bottles of Bailly Lapierre Cremant de Bourgogne Rose NV
This fresh and fruity sparkling rose out of Burgundy comes from Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes. The first varietal brings a winey character, the second it’s unmistakeable aromas of red berry fruit. This is a sparkler for easy enjoyment par excellence. It possesses a delicious softness free of anything sugary. Entirely fresh and with real finesse, its mousse displays an almost frothy, airy lightness.
3 Bottles of 2019 St. Cosme Cotes-Du-Rhone
Château de Saint Cosme is the leading estate of Gigondas and produces the benchmark wines of the appellation. The property has been in the hands of the Barruol family since 1490. Louis Barruol took over from his father in 1992 making a dramatic shift to quality and converting to biodynamics in 2010. Saint Cosme Côtes-du-Rhône is produced from 100% Syrah. The vineyards are known for their limestone sand, red clay, and pebbles, which give a freshness and intensity to the Syrah grapes. The wine is partially destemmed, fermented with natural yeasts, and vinified in concrete vats. Pristine black cherry and raspberry flavors are accented by hints of green herbs and bramble in this full-bodied but invigorating red. It’s delightfully easy drinking but nuanced and peppery. Ripe, integrated tannins linger elegantly through a long finish.
3 Bottles of 2018 Cigar Box Old Vine Malbec
This Malbec out of Mendoza, Argentina is a classic pairing with grilled beef!! It is sourced from a single vineyard, the grapes for this wine are bunch selected and hand harvested. This Malbec displays aromas of ripe plum and violets along with subtle hints of vanilla. A soft silky finish balances the rich, weighty mouth feel. This is quintessential Mendoza in a glass!
