2010 Famille Perrin & Fils "Réserve" Côtes du Rhône
Review Date: 2-26-2012
Another great value wine from Perrin. The new package for the 2010 compliments the bright fresh wine inside. The 09 vintage was big and ripe but for me many of the 2010 Rhones possess great fruit but with a brighter acid and more balance than some 09’s. This wine totally defies it’s incredibly low price point. Great up front fruit, elegantly perfumed with good weight and spice on the palate. Not a heavy wine but certainly has the concentration and persistence to be a very good and versatile food wine. When you dust off the grill this spring make sure you have your place stocked with this wine, it’s a crowd pleaser!
Fleury Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 11-27-2011
This fine Champagne has so many things going for it. A small producer we work with directly thanks to the great work of our Champagne buyer Gary Westby. This is a Champagne Rose of pedigree; Jean-Pierre Fleury was the first grower in the Champagne region to convert to Biodynamics in 1989. This wine is 100% Pinot Noir from phenomenal estate vineyards situated on steep sunny slopes in the village of Courteron. In the bottle we find an exhibition of both power and elegance. Ripe fruits on the nose, red currants and macerated strawberries. On the palate a fine balance of fruit, acid and minerality. This is a harmonious wine. Beyond all of this, the beautiful packaging makes this bottle a great gift. Definitely one of the most eye-catching wines in the store. Thankfully this is one time that choosing a bottle for its pretty label will not lead you astray!
