Beaujolais Day Tasting 21st November and Haiyan Fundraiser

No disrespect to Nouveau, but we are pouring instead some wonderful cru Beaujolais and a delicious Sparkling Gamay this Thursday.
Vin Mousseux Sec "Turbullent", Stephane Serol (Domaine Robert Serol) NV
sparkling rosé from 100% Gamay planted in the granitic soils of Roannais just west of Lyon and almost touching Beaujolais region

Beaujolais-Villages "Vieilles Vignes", Domaine Jean-Claude Lapalu 2012
from Gamay vines averaging 45 years-old, Jean-Claude's most significant early influence came from the writings of Jules Chauvet, France's "Father of Natural Winemaking"

Brouilly "Vieilles Vignes", Domaine Jean-Claude Lapalu 2012
from Gamay vines averaging 60 years of age, this is is a blend of grapes fermented with carbonic maceration and grapes vinified traditionally, and in both cases no sulphites were added during vinification, as Jean-Claude adds minimal sulphites during bottling

Brouilly "Brulius", Raphael Champier 2012
low-key but talented are the words used to describe the young vigneron Raphael Champier, whose Beaujolais are very difficult to find but highly sought-after in the hipster natural wine bars of Paris

To accompany these wines, a taste of delicious pork and duck charcuterie from Fabrique Delices.

We just ask for a donation of $5.00 to give to the American Red Cross to benefit the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. No advanced reservation required for this special tasting. Just come in between 12:30pm and 6:30pm. Don't miss this!!!
