Fancy Chips & Pearl Street Chocolate
NV CUVÉE ROSÉ BRUT
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay, Traditional Method, 13th Street Winery, Niagara, Canada
-dry, creamy, red fruit, high acidity and mineral driven, this wine is perfect on a sunny fall day, to celebrate any milestone, or just because you feel like it. Great as an aperitif or with smoked salmon or chicken liver parfait.
Heather’s Home Vineyard, Southbrook Vineyards, Niagara, Canada
–Off-Dry, Medium-Bodied Riesling, with notes of white peach, lime citrus, petrol and slight honey. Very food friendly; chicken, turkey or fried fish cakes, as some ideas.
2015 L’ÉTOILE CHARDONNAY
Marcel Cabelier, Jura, France
–full bodied oxidative (in a good way!) chardonnay with notes of yellow fruits & vanilla. Toasty. Nice minerality & depth. Must try with aged cheddar, ash rind & blue cheeses.
2019 RAISIN GAULOIS
Gamay, M. & C. Lapierre, Beaujolais, France
-An all natural, minimal intervention, light red with bursting strawberry notes & tight acidity. The ultimate thirst quenching wine. Very versatile. Try with chicken liver parfait, dark chocolate, croquettes or pizzas & pastas!
2018 LZ RIOJA
Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, Bodegas Lanzaga, Lanciego, Spain
–The fall spice blend of wines? Cinnamon, clove, vanilla, red and black fruit, medium bodied, bracing acidity, and light oak. Perfect accoutrement to bubble baths, a book & candles. Very easy to work with; if not soaking in the tub, try with lamb, pork, or steak.
Barbera, Iuli, Cerrina Monferrato, Piedmont, Italy
-This wine tastes like a bottomless glass at a good friend’s dinner party, when you don’t want to go home, yet it feels like you never left. It’s persistent & warming with lively conversation. And since we’re talking about wine, red fruit, gripping acidity and sparky tannins. Pairs with roasted root veg, flavourful mushrooms, dank cheese, and rich dishes.
