When we had lunch at the Nelson Creamery last weekend I tried a few amazing wines, and I wrote down the names of them so I could share the experience with you. These are all very, very good! So, now you have some great wines to try…just in time for the weekend! Have you tried any good wines lately? Please share them here!

~ Bearboat Pinot Noir ~

2007

While the color is a brilliant red reminiscent of black cherries, the nose offers hints of warm toast and cassis. Bearboat Pinot Noir has a mouth of fresh strawberries and raspberries while delicate suggestions of black licorice enhance the lingering finish. Bearboat Pinot Noir promises to be an exquisite addition to your table.

~ Terra Andina Sauvignon Blanc ~

2009

 Pale straw colors and a crip nose match flavors of citrus fruit, most notably grapefruit, perfectly.  Also featuring lime, nectarine, and hints of peach flavoring.  A very light white wine.

~ William Fevre Champs Royaux Chablis-Chardonnay~

2009

Combining great fruitiness with a pleasant freshness, and that special mineral character, Chablis is an appellation of reference all over the world. The vineyards, with the Kimmeridgian subsoil, are ideally exposed to sun and climate to give birth to great wine, thanks to the attention of the Domaine’s team.

A very fresh nose of mineral reduction, sea breeze and citrus blossom leads to nicely rich, generous and fleshy middle weight flavors that culminate in a clean and crisp finish. ~ Score: 87. ~ Allen Meadows, October 2010.

Cheers!

      Hi Scott! It doesn’t even taste like Chard! That’s why I like it 🙂 I’m not a fan of the oogie, oaky chards either. We’ll just tell Ally it’s Chablis. hee hee. Thanks for commenting.

    Wine is just as pretty to look at as it is to sip.

    There’s a little local winery about 15 minutes from me and well, let’s just say they know me by name.

    I love everything I’ve ever purchased from them. It’s odd because I usually prefer fruity wines, but anything they have…I love.

    We have a huge wine store not to far from us and everytime I go in there I feel a bit overwhelmed on what to get. I finally get the attention of someone that usually helps me pick a few wines depending on what I am pairing it with. I love trying new wines and these look fabulous. I jotted them down so next time I hit the wine store I can see if they have them in stock!
