THE WINES

2017 Haut Marin Côtes de Gascogne Blanc - $21
60% Colombard, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Gros Manseng
With a touch of honey and ripe white-peach flavors, this crisp wine has a warm side. It is also certainly fruity,lively with acidity and citrus. This is an easy and refreshing wine for the summer. A delightful French white wine!

2018 Château Sainte-Béatrice Cuvée des Prince Rosé - $19.50
"A simple, soft blend from the south of France, this is a perfect apéritif—bright and crisp with acidity. It's fresh, fruity and ready to drink." - Wine Enthusiast

2015 Château du Bergey Fronsac - $27
100% Merlot
"A waft of wild red fruits and liquorice draw you in for a closer look. The nose delivers expressive aromas of small crushed red fruits while the palate is immersed in blackcurrant and well defined soft red fruits. A seductive wine that ends on ripe tannins, long aromatic length and very pleasant notes of leather and vanilla. The perfect and affordable red wine from Bordeaux!" - 91 Points,International Wine Report

2016 Horse Flowers Côtes du Rhône - $29
This little biodynamic gem is simply delicious. Bright red grenache fruit is supported by spicy shiraz and earthy mourvedre - all in perfect balance. A perfect, easy drinking Rhône to drink on its own or to accompany your next bbq.

2011 Lagrave Paran Bordeaux Supérieur - $39
Ruby black color. Savory aromas and flavors of marinated peppers and olives, dark chocolate toffee, and fresh herbs with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, long vanilla brittle and custard, fine minerals, and maple buttercream frosting on white cake finish with well-integrated, fine tannins. A delicious, expressive and creamy Bordeaux red that is sure to please. Part of the harvest is aged in the used barrels of Château Cheval Blanc!

2016 Croix Saint-Christophe St-Émilion Grand Cru Classé - $56
"The 2016 La Croix Saint Christophe opens to aromas of dark cherries and blueberries woven together with spices and cigar box that all come together in the glass. This medium-plus bodied red impresses with its lovely polished frame and nice overall balance and concentration throughout. This should offer a moderate drinking window which could span a decade, however it will be a wonderful wine to approach this in its youth." - 91 Points, International Wine Report

2014 Grand Tayac Margaux - $75
"Château Grand Tayac is a small production Margaux run by the hands of ultra-talented winemaker Eric Boissenot, who is the consultant at all the Médoc First Growths and a majority of the other 1855 classified estates. The 2014 Grand Tayac is absolutely sensational, as it instantly opens to inviting aromas of blackberries and sweet cassis woven together with roasted coffee, tobacco, spices and spring florals all taking shape in this alluring red. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied, displaying wonderful elegance and finesse, as the tannins are beautifully integrated, resulting in a gorgeous seamless texture and an inner core of sweet red fruits, which expands on to the finish. This is already showing remarkably well and I expect it to continue to do so for years to come. While production is highly limited, readers interested in experiencing the talents behind many of Bordeaux’s Grand Châteaux at the slightest fraction of the cost should not miss out on this outstanding wine from Grand Tayac." - 93 Points, International Wine Report

2014 Moulin de La Rose St-Julien - $105
Brown brick red color. Earthy aromas and flavors of cassis and pomegranate, spiced nuts, cocoa, and sandalwood with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, long cedar, earth, and olives finish with earthy, medium tannins and moderate oak. A stately red with treasure chest of flavor and terroir.
