New Summer Wines 2016
Pierre Henri Gadais 2013 Muscadet "Saint-Fiacre" reg. $11.99 now $9.99!
Great deal on this single vineyard Muscadet from Sevre et Maine. Saint-Fiacre is a small region south of Nantes. The wine is fresh, crisp and bone dry, displaying all the minerality and mouthwatering acidity one wishes from a wine produced on granite and schist soils. Perfect for oysters, shellfish and seafood as well as young cheeses and salads.
Petit Rimauresq 2015 Cotes de Provence Rosé $10.99
Fantastic Rosé from sunny Provence composed of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Rich in flavor, full of strawberry and cream, light hint of spice and licorice. From France's best Rosé region.
Le Galantin 2015 Bandol Rosé $19.99
One of the best priced of the famed "Bandol" region's Rosés, this small domaine continues to produce quality wines at affordable prices. The Rosé is similar to Petit Rimauresq above, but more refined and elegant, composed of Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault. Bandol is kissed by the Mediterranean Sea breezes, and one thinks on accession the wine is bottled sunshine.
Sierra Cantabria 2015 Rioja Rosé $10.99
Muga 2015 Rioja Rosé $13.99
Two wonderful values from Spain. Although not as well known as France for producing Rosé, these Tempranillo based (with some Viura and Garnacha) wines offer up both strawberry and cherry aromas with fresh fruit, good balance and refined complexity. A hint of citrus and guava, with a smooth, dry finish.
