Here it is! The latest wine list updated for February. Remember, I’m not just adding titles to an ever-growing wine list. Very often for every title I add, one has disappeared from the list. Since last fall, I have reduced the list by about 20 titles. I try to keep my list dynamic so that my guests (and I) don’t get bored!
As I have mentioned in a past entry, I am reducing the number of Champagne titles on my list and increasing the number of sparkling wines. I feel that there are so many interesting sparkling wines available at competitive prices and from interesting wine areas. I have added one sparkling wine to my list in February and I expect to add 3 or 4 more titles next month depending on availability.
New to the wine list this month:
- André et Mireille Tissot Crémant Indigène Brut – Jura, France
- Domaine Bott-Geyl Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru 2008 – Alsace, France
- Château de la Gravelle Muscadet Sèvre et Maine L’Ancestrale 2004 – Loire, France
- Ciro Picariello Aglianico Zi Filicella 2007 – Campania, Italy (Single vineyard, planted in 1925 (see photo just below this description). Spontaneous fermentation. 20-25 days skin maceration. Only steel and cement for fermentation and storage (24 months in cement). Less than 40mg per liter SO2. Bottled without filtration.)
