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!

Wine Wednesday: Restoring Sanity

Saturday, October 30th marks the first-ever Rally to Restore Sanity, an anti-rhetoric, anti-belligerence attempt by comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert to make our political discourse a little less volatile. 

What does this have to do with wine, you ask?

We believe that good wine should be affordable to everyone, which is why we go out of our way to make sure we offer great values from all over the world. Sure, we love Cru Burgundy and Classified Growth Bordeaux as much as the next guy, but we can't afford to drink them often either. Seriously, sometimes it seems as though these wines' prices are rising like they're on a high-speed crazy train. So we're proposing our own Wines to Restore Sanity, by raising our glasses to reasonably priced, quality wines, and it officially starts today with the 2008 Domaine Chicotot Bourgogne Rouge ($16.99).

This new arrival is a fantastic introduction to Burgundy from vineyards in Nuits-St-George, with a more-than-sane price tag. Pretty, with sweet cherry and black currant fruit that tastes like it was dusted lightly with earth. There's elegant structure, here, but the tannins aren't overt, making this youthful wine approachable now, with the length to be enjoyable for five or more years.

Here are some other recently mentioned wines with "sane prices."

2009 Viña Tobia Joven Rioja ($9.99)

2005 Mylord, Bordeaux ($10.99)

2008 Fonty's Pool "Single Vineyard" Pinot Noir ($12.99)
