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!

Oktoberfest: Hot Deals aus Deutschland

Just in time for Oktoberfest, our German wine buyer Eric Story has secured three new rieslings that represent über-value for their price points.  The Wegeler is simply a tasty, expressive wine to enjoy now, while the other two will continue to improve with a bit of cellar time. Here are the specifics:

2006 Wegeler "Pure" Riesling Medium Dry $7.99 (previously $22) - Five years in the bottle have really done this wine some justice. The petrol and secondary flavors are starting to show themselves, but stonefruit is still lush and at the forefront. One of the best deals in the store from any region. Wegeler is a family winemaker with estates in both the Rheingau and Mosel. 

2009 Von Hovel Oberemmeler Hutte Riesling Spätlese $15.99 (previously $30) - This wine is delicious right now, with ripe cocktail fruit flavors and sweetness that is completely balanced by the vibrant acidity. Eberhard von Kunow, the owner and winemaker at Von Hovel, has been making delicious wine in Germany's Mosel-Saar-Ruwer gebiet for some time now.  To get a wine that's cellar-worthy, yet entirely drinkable now for this price is insane.

2009 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr "EL" Riesling Spätlese $29.99 (previously $45) - This is a serious, serious wine - a bottle that should probably be buried away for decades in your cellar, but perhaps pulled out for a special meal if you can't resist. The Sonnenuhr vineyard, located in Brauneberg, is one of the most famous in the world, known for incredible riesling grapes of the highest quality. 2009 was a fantastic vintage for the region and the depth exhibited in the Fritz Haag is incredible. A combination of stone and tropical fruits, supple textures, and hints of spice with a mineral undercurrent.  I can only imagine what this will taste like two decades from now.

You've got wine to drink now, wine to drink now or later, and wine to stow away for the future. All three are delicious and, at these prices, likely to sell through quickly.  You all get the news first because you read the blog!
