From the rare Grape corner....Cornalin

From the rare Grape corner....

Cornalin 100%

Organically grown
Made from 100% Cornalin, which is a widely planted indigenous variety of the Valle d’Aosta, the 2016 Valle d’Aosta Cornalin offers a more transparent character as well as a Nebbiolo-like style in its cherry, crushed rocks, spice , and floral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, fresh, lively, and with obvious minerality, drink it over the 4-5 years.
Rated 90/100 Jeb Dunnuck

Cultivated in Valle d'Aosta (and Switzerland)....a very demanding grape in terms of heat and brightness, it is characteristic of the central valley. The most suitable slope is undoubtedly the orographic left, but at not too high altitude and with adequate exposure it gives very interesting wines on the opposite side.
Color: deep ruby ​​red, with purple red.
Nose: very intense, characterized by spicy notes

Taste: dry, soft, rich in important but velvety tannins. Exquisite when savored at the right maturity.   The good body of enveloping tannins, make it a good companion for many important dishes of the Valdostana cuisine.

Thanks to the great professionalism combined with the use of high quality organic grapes and the use of the best technologies, the Cave Des Onze Communes now boasts the production of 18 strictly DOC wines (denomination of controlled origin) "Valle d'Aosta", brand that designates renowned products, whose characteristics are connected to the natural environment in full compliance with a specific production specification.

Eden Mill Gin

A Scottish brewery now making gins.  Apparently located right next to the famous St. Andrews Golf Course.

Eden Mill St. Andrews Original Gin...$32.99 / 750ml

Lowest price online is $34.99
Made from Fife’s indigenous seabuckthorn berry, in Original we balance tart flavours with a citrus nose and delicate midpoints.
This is a classic London Dry gin done in St Andrews style. And with a bonus 20cl in this bottle, it’s the perfect go-to pour. How will you enjoy yours?
KEY BOTANICALS:  Juniper berries, Lemon balm, Citrus peel, Angelica and Seabuckthorn berries

Eden Mill St. Andrews Gin Hop...$32.99 / 750ml

Lowest price online is $34.99
We craft beer. So it was logical to create a hopped gin. But this citrusy, unique creation has a zesty freshness that is born of passion, not logic.  Made from the renowned Australian Galaxy™ hop, we married brewing with distilling in this award-winning extra-strength gin.

KEY BOTANICALS:  Juniper berries, Angelica, Coriander and Galaxy™ hops

Eden Mill St. Andrews Love Gin...$32.99 / 750ml
Lowest price online is $34.99

Eden Mill St. Andrews Oak Aged Gin...$27.99 / 750ml
Lowest price online is $34.99
A throwback to a bygone era. In the century, the most popular gin made on our site was stored in vast oak barrels. Why re-invent the wheel?
Matured with oak-aged beer casks, this gin carries hints of vanilla and toasted caramel. 42% abv.
KEY BOTANICALS: Juniper berries, Angelica, Coriander, Oak (only oak aged for a few months, they do not want the oak to be subtle like one of the botanicals)

Domaine de L'Arboussa Maury Sec

2015 Domaine de L'Arboussa Maury Sec...$14.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $19.99
Mostly from the home property of Serge Soulatge, who’s one of the driving forces behind the quality of the Domaine Cabirau wines, the 2015 Maury Sec got a big “wow” in the notes and offers sensational aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe blackberries, spice and spring flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and just beautiful purity, it’s a no brainer that should be on reader's short list.
Rated 91-93/100 The Wine Advocate

Founders KBS is now year round!

Now year round and much cheaper now too

Founders KBS....$15.99 / 4pk 12oz
What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.
ABV: 11.2%

    Damien Martin

    Two stunning new white Burgundy values!!!
    Family owned, father and son team!

    2017 Damien Martin Macon Verze....$19.99
    • 100% Estate Grown Chardonnay
    • Full malolactic
    • Organic but not certified
    The 2017 Macon Verzé spent 10 months in tank and a small part in barrel. It has a rounded, slightly honeyed style, with ripe orchard fruits, medium body, a supple texture, and a good finish. It has solid balance and is a good effort for near-term drinking.
    Rated 89/100 Jeb Dunnuck

    2018 Damien Martin Saint Veran...$24.99
    • 100% Estate Grown Chardonnay
    • Full malolactic and 6 months on the lees to add richness and complexity
    • Organic but not certified
    Tasting Notes: Well defined citrus and stone fruit aromas, with hints of acacia, honeysuckle, verbena, and fennel. Combines vivacity, roundness, fruitiness, and aromatic richness.
    Serve With: Excellent as an aperitif for its beautiful crispness, it pairs with poultry, veal, and lighter meats, risottos with meat or fish, cold antipasti, mixed salads.

    A new load of Duplessis Chablis

    Duplessis began working organically in 2007 and gained ECOCERT certification in 2010
    Organic and Biodynamic

    Great producer and tiny production

    2012 Duplessis Chablis Montmains 1er Cru...$39.99
    The 2012 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains comes from the last parcel in the climat before it becomes Forest. It has a subtle marine influence on the nose that the other premier crus do not exhibit at present, but with a couple minutes swirling, it also offers attractive wet pavement scents. The palate is lively on the entry with red apples, a touch of pear and apricot, well-judged acidity and a satisfying, long finish. Drink 2015-2024.
    Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

    2013 Duplessis Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru..$69.99
    Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Brouilland. The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos has a fragrant, floral bouquet with citrus fruit, Japanese yuzu and dried orange peel: well defined and brimming with energy. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, a little waxiness in the texture (perhaps due to a touch of botrytised fruit?). Moderate weight in the mouth with a dash of spice on the finish, this is a fine Chablis les Clos that needs another 3-4 years in bottle.
    Drink 2016-2026
    Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

    2013 Duplessis Chablis Montee de Tonnerre 1er Cru...$39.99
    Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Brouilland. The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre has a more complex bouquet than its peers, with yellow and white flower scents permeating the citrus fruit and subtle mineral aromas. This is detailed and more sophisticated than others in this blind tasting. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, saline in the mouth, not long but there is weight and a sense of ambition here, with a long and satisfying aftertaste. This is very fine indeed.
    Drink 2016-2030
    Rated 90/100 Wine Advocate

    2015 Duplessis Chablis Montee de Tonnerre 1er Cru...$39.99
    The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre has a clean, fresh and vibrant bouquet with lovely flinty and smoky scents. This has a real brightness to it. The palate is slightly viscous on the entry but there is more complexity here than with the Fourchaume, the acidity sharper and counterbalancing the richness locked into this Montée de Tonnerre. It finishes with notes of cooking apple and a touch of ginger, although I would have liked a little more persistence on the finish. But I appreciate the style and panache of this Chablis. It may turn out even better than the 2014.
    Drink 2018-2018
    Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

    2015 Duplessis Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru...$39.99
    The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons is a blend of four parcels with differing vine age and rootstocks and vinified separately. It has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dried honey and beeswax and a faint nuttiness in the background, although I would like to see more delineation develop in bottle. The palate is lively on the entry with just a hint of curry leaf here, spicy and vivacious with quite a complex finish that I suspect will need little aging compared to other vintages.

    Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van de Keizer "Red"

    Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van de Keizer "Red"...$12.99 / 750ml
    Cuvee Van De Keizer Rood was brewed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “Cuvee Van De Keizer Blauw”. The Cuvee Van De Keizer Rood is brewed every year starting on February 24th..
    The Rood is a blond beer, very similar to what used to be the Gouden Carolus Easter Beer. This is a warm rich beer that is brewed, like the traditional Cuvee Van De Keizer, once a year. During the brewing process several types of malt and three types of spices are used. This golden blond ale has an alcohol concentration of 10% creating a full and balanced taste that will appeal to the demanding beer taster.

Amazingly complex, coal black, velvety and liqueurish, this demon has a bouquet of vine-ripened grapes, anise and chocolate covered cherries with flavors of rum-soaked caramelized dark fruits and a double espresso finish. Mephistopheles is the final installment of “The Demons of Ale” series.

    More just arrived

    2015 Agostino Familia Semillon / Sauvignon...$25.99
    A blend of 80% Semillon (aged in oak) and 20% Sauvignon Blanc (aged in tank), the 2015 Semillon - Sauvignon Blanc offers a brilliant, ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied style that’s reminiscent of a top Bordeaux Blanc. With lots of caramelized citrus, brioche, lemon curd, and floral aromas and flavors, it’s beautifully balanced and one serious white. It’s going to shine on the dinner table for at least 4-5 years, and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep longer.
