…spontaneously fermenting

Jacob's Bar & Kjøkken Wine List Updated for February 2010 – With Photo!

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.)
