News - 4th Quarter 2015
I cannot believe it's already November and the holidays are fast approaching. I'm sure everyone is busy making plans and preparing for Thanksgiving, but while you are grocery shopping, do not forget to pick up a couple bottles of delicious wine. Everyone enjoys a good glass of wine to complement their meal but what wine should I bring? European Wine Imports is here to help you make that decision.
For starters, kick off the holidays with a bottle of Albert Bichot Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Rose for only $21.99. This wine has a beautiful pink color with salmon pink highlights. It tastes of berries such as black currant and raspberry. A touch of citrus on the nose, followed by a delectable palate bursting with vivacity and freshness. This celebration wine is ideal as an aperitif. Raise your glasses and toast for what we are most thankful for.
When it is time for dinner, there are several wines that are perfect for a Thanksgiving meal. For the white wine lovers, try a bottle of Cleebourg Gewurztraminer $15.99. This wine is very aromatic with hints of fruits, flowers, and spices. This white wine is from the Alsace region and is aged in stainless tanks. 100% Gewurztraminer will pair great with the acidity of the cranberry juice and will complement your savory stuffing and gravy. For the adventurous wine drinker, I recommend the Heitlinger Riesling Spatlese $12.99. This wine features fresh citrus and peach aromas with a fine underplay of minerality. Still undecided? A safe bet is the Heavyweight Chardonnay $9.99. Who doesn't love a good Chardonnay? Heavyweight Chardonnay exudes firm acidity and finesse, traces of lemon-cream and honeyed apple. Luscious texture and clean minerality.
Moving on to my red wine drinkers, Pinot Noir is the classic choice for turkey. Starting at $15.99 the Albert Bichot Bourgogne Pinot Noir Vielles Vignes is a great choice. This wine has a deep purple ruby color with dominant cherry and strawberry aromas. It is very tasty with a tender body. At $32.99 we now find the Albert Bichot Hautes Cotes de Nuit. The Hautes Cotes de Nuits has a beautiful dark red robe. Fresh and fruity, the nose reveals notes of wild berries such as blueberries and blackberries with a touch of kirsch. Full bodied and well structured, this wine is pleasantly robust, yet balanced. On the domestic side, the Brownstone Winery Pinot Noir comes in at a reasonable price of $9.99. This Pinot Noir is easy to drink and full of earth and juicy grape flavors. It has classic raspberry and cherry flavors and aromas. The finish is flavor packed. Lastly, for the bold palate, Chateau de Raousset offers 3 tasteful 100% Gamay wines, all at $16.99. The Chiroubles consists of ripe, red raspberry, mulberry and blueberry tones strongly on the nose. There is also an intense floral quality that is reminiscent of rose petals and violets. The Fleurie clearly shows aromas of concord jelly, blue plum and deep candied cherries. Rose petals, very faint notes of wood and eucalyptus, and soft tones of cinnamon appear with a spin in the glass. Finally, the Morgon, very floral and grapey, this wine's aromas shows concord notes very distinctly. There is some crushed raspberry, a unique edge of orange rind, and some interesting foresty notes that hint of pine needles.
Now we get to everyone's favorite part; DESSERT! We are all stuffed from enjoying a great meal, but surprise surprise we saved room for dessert. As you are winding down, relaxing and enjoying dessert, have a glass of the Pillitteri Estate Vidal IceWine. Golden in color, aroma and taste. A classic style of Icewine commencing with a complex aromatic nose of freshly sliced pineapple, peach, orange and candied lemon. The palate is rich and lush with balanced acidity streaking through the tropical fruit flavors that continue to evolve into the lengthy finish. Intense, yet elegant. Just in time for the holiday season is the Pillitteri Red Leaf Vidal Icewine. The highly aromatic nose is alive with bold characters reminiscent of candied apricot, caramelized apples and peach pie with underlying orange marmalade, rock melon and passion fruit notes. The palate is rich and lush with balanced acidity and tropical fruit flavors that continue to evolve into the lengthy, simply heavenly finish. Makes a great gift ;)
Well, there you have it, my wine picks for the holidays. Be sure to come back in December to find out the picks for next month. Now that you have your complete grocery list, turn off your computer and rush to the store. I raise my glass to you wishing you a healthy, happy and safe Thanksgiving.
