Lanson Brut Rose
The current release of Lanson Brut Rosé was disgorged in October of 2017 and is composed of a blend of 53% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. The wine is a pale salmon color and offers up a bright and nascently complex bouquet of cherries, tangerine, chalky minerality, and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and nicely zesty, with a good core, fine soil signature, elegant mousse and a long, vibrant finish. The non-malo house style of Lanson really makes their non-vintage Rosé a fine companion at the table. 91 Points James Suckling.

Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin$499.00
In 1549, Pierre de Beaucastel bought a barn with its land holdings at Coudoulet. More than four centuries later, this remarkable domaine, known today as Château de Beaucastel, is producing what most people acknowledge to be the finest wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
In 1903, a young chemical engineer and mathematics professor named Pierre Perrin, together with his father-in-law, began to restore the domaine following the ravages of phylloxera. His son, Jacques Perrin, took over the domaine in 1953. Today, the third and fourth generations of Perrins, François and Jean-Pierre and Jean-Pierre’s sons Pierre, Marc and Thomas, continue in the tradition of their father and grandfather. The vineyards of Beaucastel are treated organically: no chemical fertilizer, no chemical weed killers or sprays are permitted. Organic fertilizer comes from compost and only a minimum of traditional sulphur-copper spray is used in the vineyards.
A heady blend of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise, the Hommage has consistently garnered high scores in the wine world.
Its powerful, elegant, attractive
nose is marked by Mourvèdre with opulent notes of liquorice and violet. On
the palate, it reveals great complexity with superb notes of spices, red fruit and
thyme, perfectly balanced by supple tannins with finesse and beautiful
freshness. Infinitely elegant, this wine is the perfect combination of finesse and
power, a flamboyant hommage to Jacques Perrin.
