New Le Grand Clos whites!!

WOW Wine of the Week! Come taste it February 20th from 11am-3pm at all 4 locations!!

We are very excited to introduce these wines to Missouri. The Chardonnay is creamier and richer than most French Chardonnays. If you usually drink California, give this one a try, it is a fantastic value and a good introduction to French Chardonnay as it still has some of that flinty minerality you get in French wines.

2014 Le Grand Clos Chardonnay....$11.99
Facing the Pyrenees, surrounded by vines on hillsides speckled with trees and flowers, this pirvately owned winery is nestled in a large pine forest. Le Grand Clos is located near the world famous medieval city of Carcasonne. Exceptional climate conditions and terroir allow us to produce high quality wines. Le Grand Clos Chardonnay has a beautiful nose with aromas of stone fruit, white flowers, and subtle oak and ginger spices. The palate is lively with bright acid backbone. Flavors of nectarines, peaches, and juicy citrus fruits abound in this wine. This wine has a delicate texture with a flinty minerality, and creamy notes of vanilla, brioche and hazelnut in a generous finish.

Le Grand Clos Sauvignon Blanc...$11.99
"Le Grand Clos Sauvignon Blancis full of the classic lemon boxwood, and floral notes one would expect. In the mouth, ripe citrus fruit flavors combine with a flinty minerality. This wine is aged on its lees, giving additional depth, and complexity, to this lively wine.
