Jean-Baptiste from H Wines will be at our weekly Happy Hour this Thurs Sept 15, with the following selections:
Beaujolais, Saint-Amour, 2014, Domaine Bel Avenir – $20
A nice and bright red ruby robe, a nose displaying red cherry fruits and flowers. The wine is round and well-balanced in the mouth. Pairs well with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, grilled dishes, poultry and fish.
100% Gamay grapes from 60 year old vines, from the Saint-Amour region of France.
Languedoc, Les Pierres Fendues, 2013 – $16
A round and fruity wine expressing all the character of its soil. The delicious aromas and elegant style make it the ideal partner for red meats, cheese and delicatessen dishes.
Merlot (85%) and Syrah (15%), from the Languedoc region of France.
Alsace, Riesling, 2013, Domaine Bleger, 2013 – $20
Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world’s finest white-wine grape variety.
Tasting notes Pale yellow in color, the nose develops mineral aromas, and the palate is deep in structure with a high acidity which increases saliva production in the mouth. Pairs with traditional Alsace dishes as Choucroute, pork-based dishes, white meats, fish and shellfish.
100% Riesling grapes from Orschwiller, in the heart of the Alsace region.
Cotes de Provence, Multa Paucis Major, Red, 2013 – $30
With pretty purple highlights, this wine reveals an intense bouquet of black fruits. The palate, powerful and aromatic, is characterized by its length as well as elegant tannins.
Grapes: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, from Provence.
