Joseph Rebecco
Joseph's Virgin Mary mix . . . $8.99 32oz
Owner and "concotor" Joseph Rebecco joins us to taste his legendary and locally made Bloody Mary mix. His dream, decades in the making is coming true. Joseph describes himself as a temporarily unemployed bartender after he politely refused to share his recipe with the owner of the establishment where he worked. Now, self employed, he shares his infamous concoction with you. Perfect for Mother's day brunch!


Matthieu Luneau
Besserat de Bellefon Champagne

Brut NV . . . $39.99
The color is a pure, bright straw yellow with copper glints. The delicate, lingering froth forms a fine creamy ring. Open on the nose. The first expression is of floral aromas and notes of dried flowers. The aromatic range reveals fruitier fragrances such as white peach and Mirabelle plum. Notes of hazelnut and praline develop at the finish.The attack is fresh and strong, then the wine reveals its full roundness, structure and smoothness. Notes of fresh fruit, apricot, pineapple and vineyard peach. The long, racy finish promises a bright future for this elegant, classy wine. 

Blanc de Blanc NV . . . $45.99The color is a supremely pure, bright yellow. The froth is composed of light bubbles which leave a moderate ring.The nose is intense, with fresh citrus notes blending harmoniously with floral notes (honeysuckle and acacia) and toasted aromas. A structured and ample mouthfeel. The minerality of Chardonnay blends superbly with the hints of dried fruit (apricot) and honeyed notes. The finish is fresh, lingering and light.

Brut Rose NV . . . $49.99
The color is pink with salmon glints. Fine, light bubbles form a creamy ring of froth.The nose is generous, intense and sophisticated and strongly marked by summer berry fruits (wild strawberries). It evokes an impression of jelly, redcurrant and almond. Notes of linden and hawthorn. The attack is tangy, with good volume in the mouth. There are again notes of summer berry fruits (blackberry and black currants). The finish is generous and delicately spicy.

Vintage 2002 . . . $59.99
It is deep yellow in color with golden glints. It produces delicate, abundant bubbles.A highly expressive nose. Its complexity springs from its notes of ripe fruit (pear, quince) and fruit jelly. The range of grilled and toasted fragrances appears next, giving way to notes of menthol and spices (ginger, cinnamon and anise). The attack demonstrates great generosity, with remarkable power and richness. The finish is fruity (with a predominance of yellow-fleshed fruit such as Mirabelle plums), generous and lingering.
