The Wines!!
Les Vins Trouillet LeBeau, Macon Solutre-Pouilly $22.99
The parcel is the highest of the estate, located at the southern tip of the Mâconnais in the Mont Pouilly, across the famous Solutré Rock. The harvest is usually carried out in the very last days of the harvest campaign, which gives wines of freshness and minerality. The nose opens generously with sweet notes of candied and citrus fruits. The maturity and ripeness of the fruit combine with an aromatic freshness and a real delicacy in the mouth. The wine is structured, but still lively on the finish.

Reverdy Sancerre "La Reine Blanche" $28.99
Domaine Reverdy dates back to 1650 and has been in the family for 10 generations. 
This Sancerre is very 'terroir' driven with fruit sourced from three different soil types (Caillottes, Grosses Terres, and Silex).  The wine is young and fresh with an aromatic nose and peach, watermelon, and citrus zest on the palate. 
Pairs well with seafood, fish, and goat cheese or on its own.

Patricia Raquin Bourgogne Rouge $22.99
This Bourgogne Rouge has been made in order to please the drinkers looking for an unoaked Pinot Noir from Burgundy.

It is delicate and will express the pure expression of Pinot Noir.
The wine is clean, fruity and focused.
