WINTER WINE AND FOOD RECIPES


WINTER WINES FOR WINTER FOODS

The holidays are over and winter has arrived. A time for a gathering of friends, a warm fire, and foods that can be prepared ahead to enjoy with these wonderful wines


CHICKEN FRICASSEE IN CURRY SAUCE

BEEF BOURGOGNE


HAM CASSEROLE

2013 RAYMOND USSEGLIO CHATEAUNEUP DU PAPE BLANC
ROUSSANNE $49.99/bottle
"Possessing a richer, more layered and ripe profile over the classic white, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne is 100% of the variety and spent eight months in barrel, on lees. It boasts beautiful purity and freshness, as well as notes of poached pear, apple, brioche and mint. This is followed by a medium-bodied white that has a crisp, well-defined and edgy feel, good concentration and ample length. I’d drink bottles over the coming 3-4 years, but it will hold and evolve for longer."

2011 DU GOUR DE CHAULE GIGONDAS TRADITION
$28.99/bottle
""Bright ruby. Heady scents of black raspberry, pit fruits and potpourri, with a bright mineral quality adding definition and lift. Stains the palate with intense, spice-accented red and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. The floral quality comes back strong on the finish, which shows striking clarity and sweet, penetrating persistence. This wine was still awaiting bottling when I tasted it in mid-November."
Josh Raynolds Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 92-93 points

2012 PRESOU'ILE CHARDONNAY
SANTA MARIA VALLEY
$39.99/Bottle

"Pale gold. Fresh melon, peach and honeysuckle on the fragrant nose. Picks up smoke and spice nuances with air, which add complexity to juicy pit and orchard fruit flavors. The spicy note adds bite to a finish featuring pliant peach and pear nectar."
Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar 90 points (2011 vintage)
