  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2010 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Youthful with a bright, playful nose featuring medium-intensity cherry and kirsch aromas along with black pepper, sweet spice, and a woodsy note. Hints of something floral hover in the background. The palate features tart maraschino cherry and kirsch flavors. Good fruit intensity. Bright on a moderately long finish.

      Food pairing: Lighter meats, ham

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Cherry aromas, suggestions of earth, brambly fruit, light truffle scents, licorice, and a hint of mocha on the nose. Medium-bodied, with moderately intense dark cherry flavors. Good structure. Has a nice fleshiness. Balanced, with supple tannins. Builds in intensity on the finish. Still young. Check back again around 2016.

      Food pairing: ham and lighter meats

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2011 Côte de Nuits Villages

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2011 Côte de Nuits Villages
     

    $22

    This Pinot Noir features beautiful, concentrated fruit. An amazing value, we find it a great everyday wine. Ready to drink!

    • Still young and a little distant at first, mostly with dusty, earthy notes on the nose but also surprisingly concentrated ripe fruit scents, a hint of floral perfume, and suggestions of wood. Comparatively light in body, but exhibiting rich fruit flavors balanced by brisk acidity on the attack before a rush of renewed fruit on the mid-palate and then an extended, slightly tart finish with a hint of cola spiciness. Approachable now, but likely to improve in bottle through around 2016. Excellent value. An excellent example of the appellation.

      Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2012 Ladoix

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2012 Ladoix
     

    $22

    A particularly fine example of this small and little-known Burgundy appellation, this Pinot Noir is a must for the value seeker looking for off-the-beaten-track wines.

    • Pure fruit on the nose, tending toward strawberries, but overlaid with leather, musk, and darker fruit scents. Delicate yet intense. Keenly focused, with just enough acidity to balance the fruit and light tannins. Rich, seductive mid-palate preceding a moderately long, slightly grainy finish. A very pretty wine, in every sense—but not without substance. Far more refined than commonly encountered Ladoix. That Xavier Durand devotes this kind of attention to this oft-overlooked appellation speaks volumes about his dedication to fine winemaking.

      Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut 2010 Côte de Nuits Villages

    Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut
    2010 Côte de Nuits Villages
     

    $23

    A good basic Burgundy Pinot Noir, this wine is fruity and balanced. Ready to drink now, it will mellow further with a year of cellaring.

    • Medium-intensity cherry, light floral notes, pepper and sweet spice, hints of truffle and a light, earthy minerality mark the nose. There’s a distant suggestion of anise as well. The attack on the palate suggests mostly something floral. Medium body, with appetizing acidity and a slight astringency. Crisp red fruit dominates the mid-palate, but layers of savory flavors lurk in the background, lasting through a lively, fruity finish. Likely to go well with mushroom risotto or stewed beef dishes.

      Food pairing: mushroom risotto

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Marsannay Les Echezeaux

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Marsannay
    Les Echezeaux

    $25SOLD OUT

    A wine in the same style as Les Amerots, but richer and more intense! Grown way up by Dijon, near the Côte de Nuits, this is a great basic Pinot Noir with excellent value. Some of our customers can’t get enough of it! Available in 2 vintages.

    • Earthy scents combine with up-front fruit and hints of clove and other spices on the nose. There is a musky element to the nose as well, but the wine comes across as clean nevertheless and on the palate similarly combines a certain rustic quality with rather more finesse than Marsannay is generally noted for. Still somewhat closed, with tannins veiling the underlying fruit, but solidly structured, promising good things ahead. Drinkable now but likely to soften considerably and to improve through around 2017–2018.

      Food pairing: Ribs, duck, venison, rabbit, other game

    • Gorgeous, complex nose. A bouquet of floral notes (especially violets). Also truffles, raspberry, and dried fruit aromas. Prominent red fruit flavors, red licorice, light earthy notes, black pepper and suggestions of spice on the palate. Medium-bodied with moderate acidity. Slightly tart, zesty plum and raspberry flavors. Concentrated and persistent. Has an extended, fruity finish with hints of something savory. Attractive now, but drink by around 2017.

    Champagne
    Carte Or

    $30

    Assembled from Premier Cru Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes, Carte Or is a lively Brut Champagne — supple, fresh and fruity, perfect for cocktail parties.

    • Fresh, bright, and immediately appealing with scents of yeast and apples. Develops hints of citrus and passion-fruit, with a dusky pear blossom hint in the background. A rich, creamy mouthfeel lends presence, but the creamy texture is balanced by crisp acidity, making the wine delightfully easy to drink. An excellent value.

      Food pairing: Aperitif, sushi, linguine vongole
