New French and Italian Wines

 

 

2013 San Nicola Pinot Grigio

Jenn’s $10.99 / Retail $14.99

Delicately fragrant and mildly floral, this Pinot Grigio boasts a pale, straw-like yellow color with a hint of reflective gold.  Its silk-like texture, combined with a light-bodied and delicate taste, awakens the palate with intense fruit flavor that is instantly refreshing. This white wine best displays its unique bounty when well chilled.

 

2013 Picpoul Grain Marin

Jenn’s $14.99 / Retail $17.99

From the heart of the appellation, this is a beautiful example of Picpoul. With flavours of green lemon and exotic fruits, it is dry, well balanced and fresh. A lovely wine as an aperitif or to accompany seafood.

 

2013 Chateau Cailleteau Bergeron Blanc

Jenn’s $17.99 / Retail $24.99

This Sauvignon blanc has a brilliant light straw color, aromas of citrus blossoms, ripe yellow peach and fresh exotic fruits. This Sauvignon blanc is a true expression of what we love most about the variety.

 

2013 Grand Gaillard Semillon

Jenn’s $14.99 / Retail $17.99

Plenty of pale green tints. Lifted grassy citrus characters on the aromas. Sweet fruit flavors initially on the palate with some Bickford lime cordial notes. Excellent acid structure, importantly balanced with the fruit, long carry on the finish as well. Perfect in its youth, will bottle age gracefully for those that want a mature style.

 

2013 Cantina di Custoza Blanc

Jenn’s $9.99 / Retail $14.99

Straw yellow with green highlights. Very clean nose with intense, fresh tropical fruit and the vegetal aromas. Good structure with lively acidity, dry and medium length finish. Ideal with pastas, risottos as well as seafood or ­crustaceans.

2012 Pierre Andre Macon

Jenn’s $24.99 / Retail $32.99

The Macon Villages Pierre Andre is pale yellow in color and reveals a pretty nose of white fruits. In the mouth it is round and tasty with a peppery touch.

 

2013 Domaine Sylvain Vouvray

Jenn’s $19.99 / Retail $24.99

Domaine Sylvain Vouvray is very appreciated for its balance acidity-sugar. This semi dry wine with delicate wooded overtones comes from the Chenin Blanc varietal. Those linden and honeysuckle fragrances are finely shaded by a mineral point. A good balance mouth highlights at the end wonderful smells of white fruits.

 

2012 Chateau Cailleteau Bergeron Rouge

Jenn’s $17.99 / Retail $24.99

Cailleteau Bergeron 2012 is an appealing wine, with fruit and concentration, 2 main characteristics of Blaye wines, but also elegant which is a mark of our wine.

The grapes for this cuvee 2012 came from 20 years old vineyard. It is a dense wine, complex and fresh, pleasant to drink right away, but with great potential for ageing and improving with time.

Intense cherry red color

Floral nose and red fruit (blackberry and currant)

2009 Thuerry L’Exception Cabernet

Jenn’s $34.99 / Retail $39.99

Tar and violets position in an initial formation that is simultaneously insistent and lush. A juicy flow of broad, inky strokes of tar, black strap molasses and basil paint a portrait of a sturdy, long-lasting keeper.
