Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, July 19

Your host is Monica McCall of Martin Scott Wines.  

Houchart Rosé 2013                                  $13.99
Domaine Houchart is one of the top estates in the Sainte-Victoire. This ripe while deliciously fruity and fresh wine is full of raspberries, ripe red currants and a refreshing line of acidity. Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast, 90 pts

Valentin Bianchi Elsa Torrontes 2013     $10.99
The 2013 Elsa Bianchi Torrontes has a complex nose and fruity palate. The wine has well-integrated scents of grapefruit, spice, orange blossom and apple are apparent. On the palate, one immediately enjoys the crisp, refreshing mouthfeel with flavors similar to the aromas and a clean, bright finish.  Importer’s Notes

Tavignano Verdicchio 2012                      $12.99
Straw yellow in color, this wine offers typical varietal notes of fresh fruit, green apple and tropical fruit, brush flowers and hay with a slightly bitter aftertaste of almonds.

Courteillac Bordeaux Rouge 2010           $21.99
Nice and dark color. The attack is round, full and very fruity. The wine is dense, rich, complex and exuberant, with a very sweet, harmonious and unctuous finish. Character a little non typical of the usual style of the property.  70 % merlot, 10 % cabernet franc, 20 % cabernet-sauvignon.  Winemaker’s Notes


 Bernard BUTSCHY – Le Figaro – The best vintage ever produced...

Bettanne & Desseauve : Very nice wine, intense and elegant, with the superb freshness of a very pure fruit. Highly recommended 16/20.
Robert PARKER – The Wine Advocate : 87/88 sleeper of the vintage.
