Another Tour de France – Thursday Aug th – 7pm – $6
Today we will go back to France for a great wine tasting ! I am very excited to share one of my favorite Sauvignon Blanc from Chablis region called Saint Bris. I can’t wait to have your feedback !!! ... Tasting starts at 7 ! All of these wines will be available for pre-orders so if you find something you love, we will have some fantastic pricing available!
Brut sparkling wine. Grape Varieties: Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Folle Blanche, Chenin, Menu Pineau. Nice white-gold colour. Fine and persistent foam. Fruity, delicate, with some vinous nuances. A very good balance between vinosity and roundness. Good finish. A very pleasant wine. To be served chilled as an aperitif.
Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with somtimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years. Frisky partner for oyster and crustaceans. Taken as a pre-dinner drink, it stimulats the taste-buds. It is magisterial with goat cheeses, and it vivaciy enlivens all fish dishes and particularly Scandinavian-style recipes. It also harmonizes very well with highly-spiced curries or saffon-flavoured dishes.
Appellation : Burgundy, France Grapes : 100% Sauvignon-Blanc
Les Tours Chardonnay
LES TOURS CHARDONNAY has a beautiful tropical fruit nose. It is a luscious wine with overtones of custard and ripe pear. The mouth feel is round and creamy and nicely full but with some acidity and great complexity. This bright crisp wine will pair well with grilled white fish, pasta with white clam sauce, fresh tomato bruschetta and grilled pork tenderloin.
Les Tours Syrah
LES TOURS SYRAH is a very aromatic Syrah with minerals, bacon fat and smoke on the nose. The palate mixes up layers of coffee, buttered toast and loads of blackberry and black cherry fruit. This wine matches nicely with grilled venison or pork ribs and soft creamy cheese.
Santé (Cheersin French) !
