September Wines of the Month

NV Chateau Barouillet ‘Splash’ Petillant Naturel, Southwest, France
Regularly $21.99, September Special Price $18.69
100% Semillon with notes of lemon, fresh apple and wheat beer on the notes. On the palate it’s round, richly textured and bursting with freshness. Flavors of white tea, lychee and pear followed by a dry finish. Great with goat cheese croquettes, salads and fried appetizers.

2016 Channing Daughters Vino Bianco, North Fork, New York
Regularly $19.99, September Special Price $16.99
This wine is alive with aromas and flavors of citrus fruit, white flowers, green apples, lemon curd, white peaches, pears, spice and the sea. The wine is juicy and texturally satisfying, succulent, complex, long and beguiling. This would be a beautiful white wine with a pan seared white fish.

2017 Ottella Lugana ‘Le Creete’, Veneto, Italy
Regularly $19.99. September Special Price $16.99
The grapes come from a single vineyard at the family estate called ‘Le Creete’, whose voice sings an elevated tenor of white clay – the mineral influence is unmistakable. Le Creete is the result of a rigorous manual selection of grapes, harvested as late as possible. A great pair with salty hard cheeses.

2017 Jean-Marc Burgaud Beaujolais Blanc, Burgundy, France
Regularly $19.99, September Special Price $16.99
Mineral-accented pear nectar and orange scents, along with subtle honeysuckle and fennel nuances. Smooth and weighty, but lively as well, offering gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors that pick up toasted brioche and sweet butter notes on the back half. Great for roast chicken, pork or fish.

2017 Henri Bourgeois ‘Les Baronnes’ Sancerre, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $24.99, September Special Price $20.99
Lime, green apple, wet rock and smoky gunflint on the nose. Racy and firm but also ripe, with juicy orchard fruit and citrus flavors and an exotic suggestion of candied flowers. This a delicious wine for a Crotin de Chavignol.

2016 Clos Centeilles ‘La Part des Anges’, Languedoc, France
Regularly $16.99, September Special Price $14.44
Everything about this “cuvee” exudes youthfulness with subtle pomegranate and candied fruit aroma. Full and dry on the palate with sweet fruit character balanced by tannins on the finish. This is the perfect wine for the last of the grilling season.

2017 Cantina Oddero Dolcetto d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $16.99, September Special Price $14.44
Attractive appearance with an intense ruby-red color with purple hints, a vinous aroma, sometimes fruity, and a dry taste with a full body and a pleasant touch of bitterness.

2016 Arbeau ‘On l’Appelle Negrette’ Fronton, Southwest, France
Regularly $14.99, September Special Price $12.74
Well structured, darkly colored, low in acid and with very soft tanins. Typical fragrances and flavors include red and black fruits, black pepper, licorice and flowers – violettes and peonies are most frequently mentioned. This is a wine best for pre-dinner festivities, cheese and appetizers.

2017 Chateau de la Selve ‘Petit Selve’, Coteaux de l’Ardeche, France
Regularly $14.99, September Special Price $12.74
An excellent unoaked red wine from the south of France that is a blend of (mostly) Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The color is ruby with aromas of red and black berried fruits. The tannins are supple yet well-balanced. Just the right wine for a party or a picnic.

2016 Montenidoli ‘Il Garulo’ Chianti Colli Senesi, Tuscany, Italy
Regularly $19.99, September Special Price $16.99
Pretty aromas of redcurrant, fresh herbs and flint. Bright and fresh, showing a restrained sweetness and lovely inner-mouth aromatic character to the spicy red fruit flavors framed by lively but harmonious acidity. The bright finish features lively tannins and very good length. The dark cherry fruit and big rustic tannins make this a wonderful pair for steaks.

2007 Chateau Bouscasse Menhir Cotes de Gascogne, Southwest, France
Regularly 24.99, September Special Price $20.99
Named after the stone blocks, or menhirs, which are a part of the Tannat vineyard, this a ripe, open and fruity wine. The Merlot does its job of softening the firm tannins of the Tannat and the blend gives a generous wine that has hints of the wood aging along with spice and acidity. Try this wine with slow braised oxtail.

2015 Quinta do Infantado Tinto, Duoro, Portugal
Regularly $19.99, September Special Price $16.99
This is a scrumptious blend of mixed berries, purple damson plums and holiday spices. The texture leans to the more food-friendly austere side, as acidity rubs up against darkened tannins. A wine that emphatically demands a plate of gamey roast pork or lamb.
