Club Members: $40.80
For an aperitif, cheese pairing or enjoyment with lighter fare, these cool weather whites make for a memorable evening or gift!
The pack includes one bottle of each of the following wines:
2015 Le Cigare Blanc
55% Grenache Blanc, 36% Roussanne, 9% Picpoul · The wine is rich and elegant at the same time – great persistence on the palate but with a refreshing acidity and a slightly chalky mineral aspect. This is a wine that you definitely want to serve with a rich beurre blanc, though a lobster risotto would also serve quite nicely. Rich and luscious, there is plenty of glycerol and non-trivial extract present; Le Cigare Blanc remains a great vin de gastronomie, pairing well with rich, buttery dishes.
61% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Gewürztraminer · The nose has the haunting perfume of magnolia flowers and scent of white peaches, with suggestions of ripe Bosc Pear, sweet green grass, exotic saffron, a touch of lavender honey and Meyer lemon zest. But wait, there’s more: A bit of bergamot orange blossom, jasmine, and key lime custard, quince and Madagascar vanilla. These aromas are echoed on the palate adding a light, deft, fresh acidity, flinty mineral character; a savory wine, perfect with all manner of seafood and lighter entrées. Specifically, oysters, cassoulet, grilled veggies, or a cheese course.
2015 Moscato Giallo
100% moscato giallo · Moscato Giallo is one of the most powerfully aromatic and yet elegant Moscati one will ever experience. Ideal with a savory course such as foie gras, pâté, or chicken liver mousse, but also just fine as a dessert wine with a fruit dessert, particularly lemon tart. For a truly stellar blue cheese pairing, try Valley Ford's "Grazin' Girl" Gorgonzola Style Raw Cow's Milk Cheese on a coconut biscuit.
