Thanks to Jim Proctor of Fine Wine Events (and a member of Celebrate Atlanta), and Lynn Lopiano for our selection of wine.
Our wine selections for this evening will be:
Bougrier Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2012- Loire Valley, France - This Sauvignon Blanc is a light bodied wine with citrus flavors and undertones of flint and apple blossoms. It has a clean crisp finish to make it a wonderful pairing with shellfish or poached seafood.
Located along the right bank of the Loire River, the Vouvray region is situated on top of a plateau that is dissected by small streams and tributaries of the Loire. Wine making in the Vouvray region was thought to have begun sometime in the 9th century. The climate in the Vouvray region dictates wine production with vintage variation changing due to climate shifts. Cooler climate years shift the production towards drier styles of wine including sparkling Vouvray. Warmer climate years promote the production of sweeter, dessert style wines.
Louis Bouillot Perle d'Aurore Rose - 91 Points Burgundy, France - An elegent, sparkling wine made in the traditional method using pinot noir grapes. This sophisticated rose made using the Champagne method is a pale rose in color with a medium body and fine bubbles. The bouquet and palate feature cherry and strawberry notes with a dry creamy finish. Excellent with salmon, shrimp and lobster. This is an affordable yet sophisticated rose that will surely be a favorite!
Muirwood Cabernet 2010 - Napa Valley, California - Produced in Napa by the Zaninovich family, owners of Arroyo Seco Vineyards (ASV) and Round Hill, one of the largest wineries and grape growing operations in California. Winemaker Phil Franscioni is an expert at producing great values from the Central Coast in California. His expert touch in the production of this wine makes it a stand-out for the price point.
Porta Cabernet Gran Reserva 2010 - Aconcagua Valley, Chile - This full-bodied Chilean Cabernet is intense and enticing! The deep red color of this Cabernet Sauvignon draws you into its seductive aromas of dark fruit, spices and chocolate. The concentrated fruit flavors on the palate release a long and persistent finish. It is an intense, full-bodied wine to pair with filet mignon, prime rib, and heavier pasta dishes. An excellent price point for such a lush, full-bodied wine. Salud!
Jean Marie Arnoix Vacqueyras 2009 - 93 Points- Rhone, France The Vacqueyras wine is produced from some of the estates oldest vines with a blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre. A dark, dense red-purple wine with a blend of blackberry, cherry, pepper, and spicy vanilla. Full bodied and slightly chewy with a nice finish. It was aged in foudres and bottled without fining or filtration. A deliciously complex wine and at 93 points amazingly affordable for the exceptional quality. Pair with firm cheeses, pasta dishes and beef. A little on the pricier side for everyday enjoyment, but still within reach for those special occasions!
