2006 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Review Date: 05-20-2009
Domaine Charvin is one of my favorite producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Although it is never the most full-bodied, rough hewn or strident of the Rhone reds, it is, in my estimation, always one of the most beautiful and graceful examples from the appellation. The 2006 is no exception. Its dried floral, earth and blackberry tea nuances remind me of a fine Chateauneuf-du-Pape deeply inspired by the great red Burgundies to the north. Gorgeous.

Clairette de Die Raspail "Grande Tradition"
Review Date: 12-30-2008
This Clairette de Die is truly one of the most versatile sparklers that we have in the store. Just a touch of residual sugar imparts a delicate sweetness that make this the perfect wine to pair with salty appetizers like salumi or potato chips! It works great with spicier, more exotic fare like Indian curries and spicy Thai cuisine, too. An open bottle never seems to last longer than five minutes at dinner parties.
