New Wines & Brews

Three wines to sip all summer!

Le Petit Balthazar 2023 Viognier / Sauvignon Blanc Blend – South of France

What a fun summer blend of 50% Viognier and 50% Sauvignon Blanc! Your palate will find stone fruits and citrus with a clean, fresh finish and a bright texture! Yes, it really is only $11.99!

Le Petit Balthazar 2023 Cinsault Rose – South of France

This dry rose is made from 100% Cinsault, and according to the importer’s label contains only 78 calories per 5oz glass – that is dry! Find red berries and watermelon with a zippy and mineral driven finish. Yes, this too is only $11.99!

Banner Day 2021 Carmenere – Valle Central, Chile

Made from 100% Carmenere this bold red offers dark and red fruits, cinnamon, spices, peppercorns, a whiff of coffee beans, and fresh tannins. This medium-full bodied wine with wonderful complexity goes with almost any food pairing, seriously! Being offered at only $12.99 for a limited time.

More Cool Wines…

Crosarola 2021 Classico Superiore – Valpolicella, Italy

Located just outside of Venice this wine is made mostly from Corvina, and a small percentage of the grapes are harvested late. This makes the fruit even more pronounced front and mid-palate, while still giving a dry and silky finish. Classic for Corvina find strawberries and rhubarb with light Spring floral tones… further complexity yields blood orange, light balsamic, and a touch of earth and cocoa.

Maison Ventenac 2022 L’Intrus – Southern France

Made from 100% Cabernet Franc and growing in a sunny and hot place pushes the boundaries this varietal can take… the verdict, incredible! Take what you know about Cabernet Franc and make it bolder, denser, heavier, and of course retains that wonderful spicy earth tone on the finish. All natural, using indigenous yeasts, no sulphites added – fermented and aged in concrete tanks for 3 months. C’est tres bon!

Abelis Carthago 2020 Crianza – Toro, Spain

Known as Tinto de Toro in Toro, Spain, the wine is 100% Tempranillo! These wines are always big, and this one certainly does not disappoint – those bulls on the label are foreboding… It is dark, spicy, full of black fruit, anise, pepper, and coffee. Don’t forget the healthy dose of 15+ months oak aging, and 15% alcohol, and there you have it, a bull of a wine – Toro! Toro!

Rock Ferry “3rd Rock” 2021 Pinot Gris – Marlborough, New Zealand

What if the winemaking style of Alsace, France were to be practiced in say… New Zealand? Obviously, we get the best of both worlds and have a new wine to drink! This Pinot Gris is creamy, rich, smooth, suave, and shouts intense citrus with melon and floral tones throughout. The lush Alsatian textures collide with the earth of Marlborough and become authentically New Zealand.

Santola Vinho Verde is back in stock.. it’s so lemony!!

Only $12.99

 

 

New Beer!

Delirium Belgian Ales have been brewed by the Huyghe Family Brewery since 1654.

Deliria

Blond ale shows apples and tropical tones with a clean hopped finish.

Delirium Red

Dark red ale, brewed with cherry and elderberry, good balance between sweet and sour. Plenty of cherries in the aroma and flavor shows hints of almonds – fun summer ale!

Old Bust Head Brew Co.

Great Virginia made brews located not too far away in Fauquier County… we currently have in stock:

Graffiti House IPA

Hoppy and crisp with citrus notes and a dry finish

Sky Meadows Blonde Lager

Any fan of a crisp and clean dry lager or pilsner take note… in a blind tasting you might easily think this beer is an old European favorite.

Caramel Macchiato Stout

A very creamy stout made with caramel malts, coffee, and vanilla beans! Makes a great dessert beer that’s easy drinking and goes down smooth – not too heavy!

Vixen Irish Red

Roasted malts, caramel tones, and a soft tea-like bitterness leads to a clean and fresh finish.

 

Chimay Ales are here!

Chimay Brewery (Brasserie de Chimay) is a brewery at Scourmont Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Chimay, Hainaut, Belgium, one of the thirteen breweries worldwide that produce Trappist beer.

The other cool deal with these ales, they age very well. The ales of Chimay were thought of and designed long before modern conveniences – 1850 to be exact. The ales were meant to keep and take on evolving characteristics thru the years… unfined, unfiltered, and never pasteurized! Best enjoyed slightly chilled, and pairs well with strong cheeses!

Cinq Cents

Triple blond ale – fruity and spicy balanced with bitterness of hops

Cent Cinquante

Strong blond ale – dried fruits, rich, full, light spices and floral tones

Premiere

Brown ale – copper color, generous fruit, toast, sweet caramel

Grand Reserve

Strong dark brown ale – Big, bold, full-bodied, fruity cocoa and spices

 

More cool wines….

Chateau Senejac, 2020 Haut-Medoc – Bordeaux, France

Have a crowd to feed for Easter? You are in luck! Check out Chateau Senejac, 2020 Haut-Medoc. It is a 3L bottle, enclosed with a cork then dipped in wax. Open and decant, or age for up to 20 years. The bottle comes in a wooden box and is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petite Verdot. James Suckling Wine Ratings has it rated at 93 points. Upon opening and decanting, find black currants, blackberries, coffee, autumn forest, cola, toasted baking spices, and an opulently smooth and lingering finish. Oak aging was 15 months, 30% new oak, and 70% second use oak – maintaining a balance of elegance and body to create a smooth but full texture. Pair with any lamb, beef, ham, and of course veggies & Mediterranean dishes.

Domaine de la Denante 2022 Macon – Bourgogne, France

Made from 100% Chardonnay and as only Macon can do… that woven integration of fruit with minerality, rich and creamy texture, all while maintaining a firm and refined finish. Oak aging is 3-6 months depending on vintage. Find aromas and flavors of pear, melon, hits of apples and pineapple, and a slight mineral tone. Pairs well with any domestic or game bird, ham, lemon cream-based sauces, and as an aperitif with aged meats and strong cheeses.

Chateau Fage 2022 Graves de Vayres Bordeaux, France

Old school Bordeaux Blanc made from 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc. The Semillon really bumps up the body and gives that heavy citrus tone with a touch of spice. The texture is almost viscous or oily, and the finish seems to go forever. Truly a white wine to go up against anything, to include ham, bird, and heavy fish.

Giles Copiret 2020 Fleurie Les Roches – Beaujolais, France

Made from 100% Gamay grapes growing on 65+ year old vines. A liftedwine showing big, lush black cherries, black currants, and hints of earth, stones, and spice in every sip. Overall, rich and smooth, complemented by a long silky finish. This beautiful wine is rated 94 points by James Suckling Wine Ratings.

Condado de Haza 2020 Crianza – Ribera del Duero, Spain

Dense black fruit comes on fast followed by anise, black olive, white pepper, smoky coffee beans, cocoa nibs, and just the right touch of creamy vanilla oak. Being a Crianza, this wine did see one year in new French oak. Best when decanted for an hour or two… the finish is lengthy, and the complexity continues to change well after each sip. Wines of this stature lend themselves to go with a broad array of culinary delights… so, be creative, even to include a chocolatey dessert. The Wine Enthusiast rates this wine 93 Points!

Clos Henri 2020 Waimaunga Vineyard Pinot Noir –Marlborough, New Zealand

From the Waimaunga Vineyard, known as the “Windblown Clays” comes this heavyweight Pinot Noir. Loaded with dark fruits up front and changing over to more nuance… find tea, plum, black pepper, earth, clay, chalk, oak, and dusty tannins! The finish is big and long lasting, and pairs with any great dish! Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gives this Pinot Noir 94 points, and the Wine Enthusiast also rates at 94 points!

“The Rare Wines Tasting”

 

All the wines for this tasting are rare, limited, and a true expression of fine artistry and a deep care for craftsmanship.

These selections are entertaining and bring something new and different, while keeping consideration for higher summer temperatures and cuisine to match.

 

Bodegas Conde Valdemar 2023 Blanco – Rioja, Spain

Talk about rare… Tempranillo is a red grape and makes red wine. Several years back the folks at Valdemar found green grapes growing on some of their Tempranillo vines due to a mutation. So, they made wine out of these grapes, found it to be delicious, something different, and they now cultivate these vines to make what they call Tempranillo Blanco. This wine is low in acid, aged 4 months on the lees in tank, no oak - floral and pretty on the nose, and full of tropical tones on the palate.  Versatile, pairs with any lighter fair, and sips great by itself on the patio draped in a summer evening!

te Pā 2022 Sauvignon Blanc – Marlborough, New Zealand

Most of the fruit comes from the Wairau area carved out 14,000 years ago by a glacier. It is a combination of large deposits of gravel, rocks, and silt. Makes for good drainage, and being by the seaside gets high exposure to sunshine. Take all the best attributes of the Loire Valley and Bordeaux area of France and put it in New Zealand. The indigenous Māori Polynesian people have lived in and cultivated this land for the last 800 years. Today, this family cultivates mostly Sauvignon Blanc and pinot Gris. This wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and comes off like no other with vibrant lime, lemon grass, herbs, limestone, minerals – finishing bright and crisp with a long finish! Perfect with anything that lives in water. I swear it tastes better the hotter summer gets. Enjoy this rare estate, we do not see wines from Wairau very often.

Super Marfil – Barcelona, Spain

This wine is a complete one off, and only 1,500 bottles a year are made. This was the wild idea of several wine makers in and around Barcelona wondering… what if? Made from 70% Pansa Blanca – also known as Xarello, and 30% Garnacha Blanca – the green Garnacha grape. Yes, it sees time in oak, however, it is using the solera method with old sherry barrels. The base was a 1976 barrel, this bottling is a blend of 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 vintages. As for what is in the bottle, it’s a white wine with a hint of an amber tone. If you like dry sherry and wish it was made into an everyday wine, this is it! Sort of difficult to describe, each wine drinker with have their own individual experience… I get subtle tones of baked almonds, lemon, orange rind, tiny hint of butterscotch, and punchy oak.  It would be great with strong cheese, fruit, tapas, aged meats, and anything your imagination can think-up! Rest assured, if you like this, nothing else compares, and with only 1,500 bottles made a year, not too many will know its secret.

2020 Coteaux Bourguignons -  Bourgogne, France

Bourgogne, France is known for superior Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, typically coming from specific regions within the larger area. In 2011 the new designation of Coteaux Bourguignons gave wine makers the ability to still make quality wine in Bourgogne, but with more artistic expression and creativity. For instance, red Bourgogne is typically all or almost all Pinot Noir. This wine happens to be 80% Gamay & 20% Pinot Noir. Yes, there is some Gamay grown in Bourgogne - borrowing from their Beaujolais neighbor to the south. What all this means… you get a red blend with Bourgogne flair and complexity in a light-weight package and perfect for summer! It is a strawberry and raspberry bomb with subtle undertones of cinnamon spice, forest floor, and smooth tannins! Try it with a little chill!

Bodegas Costers Del Sió 2021 Cau del Gat – Costers del Segre, Spain

Being 70% Garnacha, 20% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah, this blend is strikingly like the great Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines from France’s southern Rhône Valley. This blend is from northwest of Barcelona, not too far from the Pyrenees Mountains. Due to a Continental climate the growing season is hot and very dry. These conditions put a great deal of energy into the grapes. Every bit of that sundrenched heat can be felt as the wine bursts forth from glass to palate. Though brawny and rich, there is elegance with the back-n-forth play between big fruit, tight tannins, and just the right amount to oak aging – 9 months to be exact. Steeped red fruits, blueberries, spice, earth, and a hint of smokey bacon fat shine prominently in this amazing and limited blend! Yes, as the label states, this is a limited-edition wine. Even more tempting is the price, selling for about a third to half what Chateauneuf-du-Pape goes for these days!
