Sparkling/Champagne Tasting – Thursday December 27, 2018
Aloha Grapes Gang –
You are in for a treat! Please join us this Thursday, December 27th, for Grapes’s annual sparkling/Champagne tasting. From 3:00 – 6:30pm, we will be tasting five sparkling wines with a variety of aromas and flavors.
For the party animal, we have two bottles that look as good as they taste with just a note of sweetness:
Cuvee Deor, Extra Dry Sparkling Wine – The Gold Collection & Cuvee Deor Rose, Extra Dry Sparkling Wine, France ($13 per bottle). Nifty looking bottles go along with refreshing flavors of stone and cherry fruit.
Francois Montand, Method Traditionnelle, Brut, France ($16 per bottle) – Wonderful fragrance of yeast, pie-doe, citrus peel and baked apples. Ideal as an aperitif with light appetizers.
Bouvet Signature Brut, Loire, France ($17 per bottle) – Crisp, light, wonderful nose and flavors of lemons, lime peel and green apples. It would pair well with chilled crab and crusty bread.
Champagne Trouillard, Extra Selection Brut, France ($39 bottle) – What a deal! Bubbles the size of pinheads that goes on forever. Bread-doe, toasted grains with lemon curd on the finish…exceptional! It would be outstanding with Chinese-style lobster and black bean sauce!
Grapes Team to you and your families, we wish you a wonderful holiday season filled with laughter, good food and good wine.
And, as a reminder, Grapes is open this Sunday from 12:00 noon to 6:00pm and Christmas Eve from 12:00 noon to 4:00pm.
Grapes is closed Christmas Day and will reopen Wednesday, December 26th at 12:00 noon.
Please drink responsibly, and we look forward to seeing you at our annual sparkling/Champagne tasting on Thursday, December 27th.
Wishing you all the best – the Grapes Team
