Wine Wednesday May 1

Posted: Updated:

Tonight at Wine Gourmet we're pouring a few staff favorites.  Pam has selected a Chianti from the Tuscany area of Italy, Brian has pulled a bargain Sauvignon Blanc from Chile  that he believes more folks oughtta know about and Mike has selected a perennial Summer favorite, a Vinho Verde [Vee-no Vair-day] from sunniest Portugal.  Stop by between 5 & 7:30 for your fair share of samples. 
And save room for dinner ‘cause Bruno's GastroTruck will be here bangin' out there incomparable pub grub.

To open and enjoy on-air.
1.)  Domaine Veugeon Brouilly 2011 [Voo-jon Brew-ee]
Mike's favorite bargain in the store.  This Cru Beaujolais [crew  boh-joh-lay] is one of 10 sub regions of the lower part of Burgundy.  Brouilly is a light bodied version with distinctive aromas and flavors of black cherry, cranberry, and currants.  It is very food friendly and a delight all by itself.  Complex enough to be satisfying and simple enough to be friendly. Enjoy it with a ham sandwich and a salad with bitter greens.
A $13.99/btl

.)  Chartron La Fleur
This unassuming little white comes from the Bordeaux region and is comprised of 100% Sauvignon Blanc. It is aromatic with notes of lime and fresh-cut grass.  On the palate it is lively and fresh with citrus and gooseberry flavors and light notes of asparagus as an earthy base.  Killer with seafood, drink it with a shrimp risotto.
A $12.99/btl
