Holiday Hits

As we close down 2018, we are celebrating the holidays by opening some of our favorite wines from the cellar. On Christmas Eve, we have Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Serpentières’ 1997 from magnum, a beautiful wine from the northern side of Savigny, where the wines are leaner and more mineral than the wines that come from the other side of the Rhoin River, which divides the village. These wines have more in common with their neighbor Pernand, and show pronounced gun-flint aromas, as we not far from the hill of Corton. Les Serpentières is a memorable wine, showing a present but delicate core, still with a tinge of electricity despite the age.

Wednesday, we will open Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2000 from Fortia in Double-Magnum, followed by Suenen’s beautiful ‘C + C’ in Jeroboam the following evening, a blend of vines from the Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly. Friday evening, we will open a very special Côte-Rôtie 2010, from Michel & Stéphane Ogier, followed on Saturday evening by beautiful, aged White Burgundy from Domaine Ponsot, their Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru ‘Montluisants’ 1997. Sunday evening, we venture to Piedmont, pulling from cellar Sori’ Paitin’s Barbaresco ‘Serraboella’ 2004, one of the most highly esteemed vineyards of the commune of Neive, and a great vintage in the Langhe.

We look forward to seeing you this week, have a safe and happy holiday!
