Saturday Tasting

Bordeaux vs. Rhone

Join us on Saturday, April 20th, from 1 to 4 p.m., to taste classic, rich wines from France’s Rhone Valley vs. Bordeaux region.

2019 Ogier “Artesis” Côtes du Rhône Blanc – A sheen of honeycomb lends mineral richness to white pear and pineapple marmalade in this full-bodied, juicy white. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Viognier vinified dry with no oak; it’s an easy-drinking, elegant sip that finishes with a grip of grapefruit pith. $13.00

2022 Petit Freylon “Cuvee Marguerite” Bordeaux Blanc – This 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon blend exudes appealing citrus and fresh tropical fruit. It is a well-balanced wine, culminating in an elegant finish. $13.00

2017 Ogier “Dentellis” Gigondas, Rhone Valley – This blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre is well-built, delivering a juicy core of red and black currant fruit inlaid with lively, savory, mineral accents. Good grippy energy through the finish. Best from 2021 through 2025. Wine Spectator: 92 $29.00

2020 Château Carbonneau “Le Verrière” Ste.-Foy-Bordeaux – This blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot shows a toasty persona, with sleek roasted vanilla and tobacco notes guiding a core of plum and dark berry preserve flavors along. As the color suggests, this is a full-bodied wine with hearty tannins accented by hints of clove and earth notes. $28.00
