Tasting Notes

JL Vergnon Brut Conversation: This small grower Champagne is unique as it is from the grand Cru village of Le Mesnil sur Oger, produced from 100% Chardonnay. Grand wine, grand fun!

Domaine Pascal Bonhomme Vire-Clesse 2012: Not new to us, but always consistent quality. This vintage is a bit richer and offers a lot of quality for the price.

Chateau Soucherie Rose de Loire “Cuvée L’Astree” 2012: Grolleau and Gamay here which may not bring a taste to mind, but you will find this to be a refined, dry, thirst quenching rose, perfect for the beautiful sub-tropic weekend.

Domaine du Meix-Foulot Mercurey 1er Cru 2009: It may be hot, but not too hot for a rich, velvety tasting 2009 red Burgundy. We will present this at cellar temperature which is the proper way for enjoyment anytime of year.

Come taste these wines!
