Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Jan 18


Your host today is:
Christelle Marilhet of Harry's Staff.
Born and raised in Lyon, France and a graduate of Thonon Les Bains. Christelle imported herself, along with her family from France in 1997. She took a job at Le Figaro, a French bistro in Greenwich and after nine years there she accepted a position with G.E. in Fairfield as Banquet supervisor. A year later Harry’s was fortunate enough to cross paths with her and looking for a career change, Christelle agreed to use her talented palette to our benefit. Since 2007, as a staple on staff at Harry’s Christelle’s opinion has helped us to expand and define not only our French section but has added much to the Italian section also. It is very obvious to us that she appreciates great wine at all price points and there cannot be any question that when she loves a wine Harry’s had better have enough for all.

Chateau Haut Selve Graves Red Bordeaux 2010                 $19.99
This is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  It shows several layers of rich fruity flavors.  It is well-balanced with hints of mint, cherry, tobacco and spice.  A creamy wine with a silky texture and a floral nose.

Villarrica Crianza Rioja 2009                                     $13.99
Bright ruby color tones.  The aromas are expressive of red fruits and berries.  In the mouth this wine is fresh and balanced showing flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and licorice.  On the finish are notes of light toast that are long and lingering.
