Chardonnay; apple, citrus, pear, touch of oak, crisp
Chardonnay at its most affordable, from Domaine de l’Échelette in the Maçonnais sub-region in Burgundy. With a round mouthful and plenty of acidity, this is a match made in heaven for Welsch Rarebit, salmon or Poussin, and with its structure, could certainly hold up to beef or lamb.

Gruner Veltliner; citrus, savory, white pepper, herbs

Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre; earth, plum, spice. From central, southern France, Château Gilbert & Gaillard present the wine ‘for friends’, a loving way to describe an easy going table wine. Fresh and lively, and still with depth, this is a great wine for a warm night, after a long hike, when beef and lamb call. Steak tartate to start, anyone ?

Garnacha, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah; rich. Spain’s Priorat region favors blends, and the Clos Berenguer Del Moler from Clos de Tafall is bursting with fruit, chocolate, vanilla, and yet due to the high altitude of the vineyards, this wine is fresh, postured, aromatic.

2013 Côtes-Du-Rhône, Domaine Charvin, Southern Rhône, France 18.00
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan ; earth, rustic, depth, ripe. In the hands of Laurent Charvin, this Côtes-Du-Rhône can easily be looked at as a baby Chateauneuf du Pape. The grapes come from vineyards just inches from CDP, and the wine is entirely organic. This is a wine of elegance, concentration, and depth, with well integrated tannins, and deep purple fruit.
2016 Syrah, Tandem, Domaine des Oulet Thaleb, Morroco 20.00
Syrah ; leather, spice, warmth, aromatic and rustic. Domaine des Ouleb Thaleb was established in 1923 and is located not far from Casablanca.

A touch of oak softens the rusticity, and the fruit is ripe, the wine supple.
2013 Rully 1er Cru Les Pierres Domaine Michel Briday, France 24.00
Pinot Noir; cranberries, mushrooms, aromatic splendor. To Burgundy we go, where the finest terroir stakes its claim. Rully is located due south in Burgundy, in the Côte Chalonnaise, which like the Maconnais, is home to affordable, classic, expressions of both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

2015 Maury Rouge, Domaine Fontanel, Roussillon, France 24.00

Great food, great delivery AND compostable packaging?! Definitely the best food order experience I’ve ever had. – Annagarthe
