2015 Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol Rosé
Review Date: 08-03-2016
This Bandol Rose’ from Chateau de la Noblesse is delicious! This wine is clean, complex, and elegant. The purity of fruit of strawberries and tangerine zest compliment the dry mineral notes and lively acid. This wine will go great with lighter foods and also delicious on its own. Stock up on this. You won’t be sorry!

2013 Mt. Hector Pinot Noir Wairarapa
Review Date: 01-12-2016
Extra! Extra! This is the hottest Pinot Noir deal around! Every time I taste this wine, I can’t believe the price point this is selling for. The 2013 Mt Hector Pinot has layers of complexity and a long finish. The aromas are full of cracked black pepper and dried purple flowers. Flavors of flinty minerality, with an earthy underbrush note, and baking spices add wonderful layers that are not common with Pinots at this price. The palate has mouth watering acidity with juicy black cherries and plum carries on through the finish. Pinot Noirs at this price are usually lacking complexity or not palatable. This is the BEST exception I have ever tasted. I highly recommend buying this by the case before it is gone!

This gin is so amazing and complex that it is hard to put it all into words! It is so smooth and clean, yet the most complex gin I have ever had. Juniper, spice, berries, citrus peel, herbs are all there and so balanced. This gin is so gorgeous, that drinking it neat is the best way to enjoy this gin. Buy this now! It is selling fast with both customers and staff!

Bruno Michel "Rebelle" Extra Brut Champagne
Review Date: 04-18-2014
The Bruno Michel “Rebelle” offers much more richness than most Extra Brut Champagnes, and with the lovely acidity and minerality characteristics, this makes for a great sushi pairing! The Rebelle will delight your palate with the crisp acidity and luscious apple type fruits. If you like sushi, I highly recommend pairing the two! It goes great with yellow tail, salmon, spicy tuna and many other types of seafood, but it is the wasabi and soy sauce that really makes the pairing special. Don’t hesitate -- treat yourself to sushi and this Champagne tonight!

Launois "Quartz" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
Review Date: 02-05-2014
Wow this is a fun Champagne! If you love Launois Champagnes like I do, please note that the “Quartz” is different than their traditional richer style, but equally well made. Zesty acidity with a touch of citrus and white peach livens up your taste buds. This Champagne is light and crisp, yet elegant with notes of soft creamy mousse to balance everything out.

2008 Bruno Michel "Les Roses" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 10-17-2013
The Bruno Michel Les Roses will speak to red wine lovers. The characteristics are so similar to a Pinot Noir such as ripe cherry, orange peel, earth and spice. This has the stuffing to pair with many foods. While this is not a Champagne for every palate, it is a special treat for some of us!

Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignee Champagne
Review Date: 06-13-2013
If you love Brut Rose Champagnes as much as I do, then you HAVE to try this one from Fleury! With notes of elegant strawberry, vanilla and spice, all wrapped up with balanced acidity. To sweeten the deal, Fleury is a direct import, so this elegant Champagne is a great value!
