Jaillance Rosé, Crémant de Bordeaux Brut NV – Sparkling wine

Showing a delicate pink hue, this wine has an attractive red berry cream nose with a whiff of biscuit notes. Refreshing mouthfeel with a persistent creamy mousse and lively bright red fruit flavors.  A super all-around bubbly for any day of the week.

Château Bonnet Rosé 2016

Attractively pink, this is a delightful, easy drinking Bordeaux rosé.  Lively and wonderfully fruity on the palate (think red fruit cocktail). Energetic, packed with flavor, with an attractive creaminess mid-palate and refreshingly crisp finish.

Château Nicot Blanc,  2015, Entre Deux Mers

Zesty Sauvignon Blanc dominant wine – attractive floral lift on the nose. The wine is crisp, juicy and light bodied with ample citrus, grassy aromas and flavors. A perfect spring/summer sipper and ab fab with all things seafood.

Château Tire Pe, Tire Pe Diem, 2015  AOC Bordeaux

Merlot with soul and style and firmly anchored in terroir.  Youthful, medium-bodied, and packed with delicious bright plummy and blackberry fruit. Firm, yet fleshy tannins add texture and roundness. Long persistent finish.

Château Laribotte, 2011 Sauternes

Delicious, luscious and richly textured with a fine spine of refreshing acidity. Bountiful aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, dried stone fruit, with lifted floral notes and a touch of spice. Lingering rich finish.
