What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

June’s Italian Picks

In February, Greg and I went to Valdobbiadene region (Province of Treviso. Venice is about 30 miles away) to meet up with Silvano and visit his estate, Silvano Follador (No disappointments here). Prosecco grapes (minimum 85%) along with verdiso, perera, and bianchetta (maximum of 15%) are currently allowed in the blend. Silvano is in his early Twenties and doing a fantastic job. With the help of his sister Alberta they make four types of Prosecco ( Sui-Lieviti, Cartizze, Brut and Extra Dry), and right now we have the last two in stock. We LOVE this stuff, and you will love the price. The Silvano Follador Extra Dry ($10.99) is prefect for your summer entertaining! Pear and honeydew melon balanced with great acidity and rich texture, by itself or for making mimosas or Bellini’s. The Silvano Follador Brut ($10.99), though dryer on the palate has a very creamy texture and yeastiness with an incredible length on the finish and a very fine mouse that just dances on the tongue. 2002 Villa Antinori Toscano Rosso ($15.95) Earthy and light strawberry with some cherry undertone. Medium body, with soft acidity and a delicate finish. Sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. This one is very user friendly for cocktail hour. 2004 Ruggeri Corsini Barbera d’Alba ($13.99) From the husband and wife team Nicola Argamante and Loredana Addari, and wow have they have hit another one out of the ballpark! This barbera is medium to full bodied with lots of black cherries, raspberries blended with some minerality and a touch of violet on the finish. Enjoy with your barbequed tri tip or burgers. —Mike Parres
