What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Chalk Twins in the Tasting Bar Tonight

Tonights Line Up- Ready for you to come and taste!

Sherry and Champagne together in the tasting bar? It sounds like a strange combination, but the two wines have much in common, and tonight in Redwood City from 5pm-6:30pm Joe Manekin and I will be exploring those similarities. I hope you can join us, the cost is $10.

Both of these wines are born from chalk soil and are the products of extreme climates. Both are blended across time, with most of the wine from both areas coming from multiple harvests mixed together. Both are noble wines. Come and discover these together tonight:

Bruno Michel Premier Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Deliciosa" Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda $19.99
Launois "Veuve Clemence" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Rey Fernando de Castilla Fino Jerez $21.99
Amaury Coutelas "Cuvée Louis Victor" Brut Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Viejo CP" Palo Cortado Jerez $44.99
