Wine Tasting: Saturday March 17 from 2-6 pm
Sara from VIN SOCIAL will host a complementary wine tasting!
We will be featuring the following wines:
Château d’Oupia Minervois Rouge Tradition
André Iché, who passed away in November of 2007, was a legend in the Languedoc. He inherited a 13th century castle and a large estate in the barren Minervois region, tended his very old vines and made wines but sold everything in bulk to local négociants. Years later, a Burgundian winemaker happened to taste his wine in Oupia and was so enthused that he convinced Iché to bottle and market his production. The VdP Heretiques and the Minervois have garnered rave reviews as a “best value” by numerous publications. His daughter has since taken over responsibilities and has maintained the style and philosophy.
Domaine du Grand Bouqueteau Chinon, Loire, France
Nice cherry red color. Powerful nose of vanilla, coffee, dried fruit, spice and perfumed blackberry. Soft tannin with a full body and a long finish.
Recommended with white meat, game, fowl, red meat in sauce, cheese, BBQ, salads or by itself.
Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc 2016 Léon Perdigal
This wine is a blend of five traditional white varieties sourced from several vineyard areas across the southern Rhône, including the districts of Vaucluse, Gard, Ardèche and Drôme. Fermented at low temperatures and matured without oak. An approachable wine with medium intensity and a gently complex nose of pear, white peach and delicate honeysuckle scents. A rounded palate with a pleasing balance between roundness and crisp acidity. A good all-rounder for pairing with food. Ideal with chicken or fish in light sauces.
Château la Verrière 2015 Bordeaux Supérieur
Rich and with good fruit, this is a structured wine that has the density to age well. The dark-chocolate flavors mingle with the black-plum fruits, finishing with just a light lift of acidity.
