PRODUCER SPOTLIGHT:
Pierre-Marie Chermette
Domaine du Vissoux

Vissoux Moulin a Vent
"Regularly at the highest level for several vintages, this is an exemplary domaine. Pierre-Marie Chermette has practically no equal; his wines are so far above the rest that there is no comparison. His efforts in the vines over the last five or six years has yielded such dividends that henceforth we hope the whole profession follows."
- Revue du Vin de France 2010 Classement-Les Meilleurs Vins de France, p. 350

Two Stars out of three; one of only three domaines in Beaujolais so rated, and the ONLY domaine of this ranking that produces AOC Beaujolais (the rest are rated for their crus). Chignard, Lapierre, Thivin, Terres Dor�es, are rated one star.

Moreover, Domaine du Vissoux is the reference for Beaujolais in virtually all of the top bar-a-vin in Paris, the top cavistes in France, and even Michelin-star restaurants. In short, it is the best.

While we anxiously await the lauded 2009 vintage, you can satisfy your palate with the terrific 2008 vintage at a great price. We have limited quantities and are offering them at 20% off the regular retail price:

Simone Scaletta's Classic Piedmont Reds
Saturday Tasting and Sale
Simone Scaletta's Classic Piedmont Reds"The youthful Simone Scaletta is making his first marks in the wine world with some admirably distinctive offerings." Gambero Rosso.

Located in the lower section of Monforte, which has beautiful views, the vines are young and he does all the work in the vineyard and cellar himself. He uses only 600 litre and older barrique for aging and no filtering.

The beauty of the hills of Monforte, his passion for wine, the warmth of the Langhe region and the feeling that he could live in harmony with the rhythm of winemaking contributed to Simon Scaletta's decision to restore an abandoned vineyard where it had already existed, respecting the surrounding woods and the balance of nature.

Research, respect and acceptance of the values of a territory which is strongly connected to the delicate rhythms of both nature and people not only were the leading principles of his personal choice, but also define the style of Simone Scaletta's wines. The position of the land, the climate and hard work give each single wine its unique character. There are five hectares in total. This small dimension gives Scaletta the opportunity to dedicate great attention and care to each stage of the vine's life. Pruning, staking and wiring, the process of thinning, the special selection of grapes are all done in total respect of natural cycles and are based on a technical knowledge aimed at the production of the highest quality wines.

Join us on Saturday, September 11th from 12PM - 4PMfor what promises to be an excellent tasting. Like all of our Saturday, In-Store Tastings, this event is free and all are welcome (must be 21 years of age to sample wines).

New Releases - Yannick Amirault's Reference Point Loire Valley Reds: Bourgueil and St.-Nicolas de Bourgueil
Amirault The villages of Bourgueil and neighboring St.-Nicolas de Bourgueil lay just west of Tours almost in the center of the Loire Valley. Here the grape for the red wines is Cabernet Franc grown on limestone vineyards some two kilometers north of the Loire River. At their best, the wines produced in these appellations give, if not the literal structure of Bordeaux, much of the charm, but their own individual character. And 100 years ago, were considered much the equal of Bordeaux. But times and fashions change. However, the quality of Yannick Amirault's wines speaks for itself. Great quality, very flavorful and attractive wines.

"In the last ten years, the wines of this Yannick Amirault's Pavillon du Grand Clos, have appeared as the most complex and the most consistent of the appellations Bourgueil and St. Nicholas de Bourgueil. The wines of the domaine are characterized by body, cleaness, charm and in a great vintage, by aristocracy.... Amirault's wines have a maturity of tannins that is rare. When the vintage accentuates this search for maturity, certain cuv�es swing towards opulence, but still serve as a reference for the finesse des matieres." - Le Classement, Revue du Vin de France

Join us on Saturday, September 18th from 12PM - 4PM for what promises to be an excellent tasting. Like all of our Saturday, In-Store Tastings, this event is free and all are welcome (must be 21 years of age to sample wines).

Yannick Amirault Bourgueil "Le Grand Clos" 2007, Regular Price $27.99/bottle - "Still fresh, despite the mature hints of tea and cedar around the edges.

Introducing two stellar Rhone-style releases from Fausse Piste Winery
Celebrating the Rhone in a different kind of way, newcomer, Jesse Skiles of Fausse Piste Winery
Amazing Newcomer, Fausse Piste
While Peter Weygandt is best known for his selection of top European estates, when the opportunity arose to work with a truly special Oregon winemaker, Jesse Skiles of newcomer Fausse Piste Winery, Peter didn't hesitate. Fausse Piste produces minute quantities of stellar Rhone-style reds and whites from small, well-placed vineyards in the Yakima Valley and Walla Walla areas of Washignton State, and Amaranth Ridge in Oregon. Fausse Piste's wines are an excellent complement to our top-notch French Rhone Valley wines, and are amazing values to boot.

Fausse Piste Syrah Pour L'Amour de Dieu 2008. A "Blend" between two vineyards: 25% Syrah from my block at Outlook (a dry rocky site in the Yakima Valley) and 75% from Amaranth Vineyard (Located in the Umpqua Valley AVA; a unique site is nestled in the west end of the Cascade foothills at 680 feet above sea level). Constant breezes from the west, slightly warmer days than the Willamette Valley but cooler nights due to elevation provide a unique site for a very different showing of Syrah than vineyards in the north. 2008 provided an almost perfect growing season in both AVA's. A long summer with warm days and cool nights and blue sky 'til late October. Fausse Piste's first Syrah release consists of fruit that was hand picked, sorted, and fermented in small lots using delicate manual punchdowns and fermented using yeasts isolated from the Rhone Valley, then lightly pressed into neutral French oak from small coopers where after finishing Malolactic fermentation it rested for 11 months at 55 degrees before being bottled unfined and lightly filtered using a plate and frame. A Syrah that's sure to be KILLER! 96 cases produced. $21.99/bottle.

Fausse Piste Viognier D�couvertes 2009. From the Outlook Vineyard located in the Rattlesnake Hills sub AVA of the Yakima Valley in Washington State. At the Edge of the foothills at 900 to 1100 feet above sea level and a South East aspect, Outlook lies above the richer deeper soils caused by the Missoula floods. Basaltic rock with windblown loess are the main soils found in the vineyard. Planted first in 1982, and the Viognier block planted in 1989, Outlook Vineyard is managed by Roger Davis for Owen Roe Winery. In 2009, the Yakima Valley had one of the warmest vintages in quite some time. A perfect spring rolled in to unusually hot summer, which was lucky, given an early frost across much of the state on October 11th. The heat seemed to have less impact on Rhone Varietals as on wines based on Bordeaux varietals. Harvested on September 14th at 25.8 Brix with unusually high acid and a ph of 3.6 the Viognier was ripe, but also well-balanced due to low yields of 2.4 tons per acre. Handpicked then chilled at the winery overnight following hand-sorting, and then pressed whole cluster over a long and delicate press run. Settled overnight in tank then fermented in equal parts neutral French oak, stainless steel 75 gallon drums and a concrete "egg" from Numblot in France, using a combination of native yeasts and yeasts isolated from the Rhone Valley. After weekly battonage and a long cool fermentation the wine was not allowed to undergo Malolactic fermentation. Lightly fined and filtered and bottled on March 19th 2010, then released May 1st 2010. 163 cases produced. $21.99/bottle.

As a footnote: Fausse Piste's showing at the 2009 Hospice du Rhone event was reported on by Gang of Pour, who had the following to say: "Perhaps the most unforgettable example of Viognier comes from newbie Fausse Piste; both new to the event and new winemaker from Oregon. If ever a wine expresses the purity of Viognier fruit, the '08 C'est la Viognier, Outlook Vineyard Find this wine in Yakima Valley does. Fermented one half in barrel and one half in tank, the wine retains a lively crispness, while showing white peach, lemon grass, anise and cream flavors. If this is not the finest Viognier of the show, it is certainly in the top five."
