Saturday Wine Tasting

At the Tasting Counter in the North End Main Store

After blowing our spending budgets for the Holidays, there’s no reason why we can’t still drink good wine without spending a lot. Here are a few that we just brought in:

  • 2017 Maison Les Alexandrins Syrah, $8.99
    Both fruity and ample, with aromas of red fruit (blackcurrant, strawberry, blackberry) with a round and fresh attack on the palate. All in balance, the tannins are perfectly melted and offers a beautiful finish with notes of ripe fruit and spices.

  • 2016 Maison Les Alexandrins Cotes Du Rhone, $9.99
    Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, this Côtes-du-Rhône is par excellence. Fruity and fleshy, with beautiful tannins, it is the great wine for everyday enjoyment. 

  • 2015 Mas De Boislauzon Cotes Du Rhone Village, $13.99
    This is an outstanding Côtes-du-Rhône Villages that shows very dark red/black color with lovely aromas of lush blackberry and red currant with dark chocolate, citrus and spice. The palate is ripe and dense with round, lush berry fruits, earthiness and mineral flavors backed with firm citrusy acids.

  • 2017 Gassac Guilhem Blanc, $9.99
    A bright, lively wine with crisp acidity, and powerful, fruity aromatics. Medium bodied with flavors of apple, pear and a touch of minerality.

Wine Class: Sparkling Wines of the Roederer Family with Scott Sprague

BUILDING UPON A 200-YEAR TRADITION OF WINEMAKING EXCELLENCE

Roederer Estate Brut is the first California sparkling wine to be produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, further building upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking from this family owned company. Roederer's unique winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvée. Jean-Claude Rouzaud, then president of Champagne Louis Roederer and fifth generation descendant of the founder, selected the 580-acre Anderson Valley vineyard and winery site in 1982. Rouzaud, who has since handed down the family tradition and position to son Frédéric Rouzaud, believed that estate-owned vineyards were essential to ensure top quality wine, and had searched California for ideal growing conditions throughout the course of several years.

Join us for this special tasting with Scott Sprague, Fine Wine Specialist from Idaho Wine Merchant.

Wine Class: Celebrate With Champagne!

When it comes to celebrations, nothing makes the occasion as special as the real deal—Champagne—perhaps the world’s most famous wine.

Join Divit Cardoza as he shares his deep knowledge of this historic region. Champagne, the wine, is named after the region where it is grown, fermented and bottled: Champagne, France. Nestled in the country’s northeastern corner, near Paris, the only labels that are legally allowed to bare the name “Champagne” are bottled within 100 miles of this region (according to European Law). In addition to location, Champagne also receives its distinguished name because of the grapes used to produce it. Grown in a mild climate with chalky and mineral rich soil, the flavor of these grapes is truly unique. 

This tasting will include appetizers and desserts from the Co-op Kitchen.

This is one of our most popular tastings and sells out quickly, make your reservations early!
